If you’ve been keeping up with the codomomental news, maybe you understand a little bit why we run our best-of from December of the previous year to November. It gives us enough distance to put the hype in perspective of all the other exciting things that happened.
And we’ll certainly need that distance as I’m hype ventilating at just what is happening in the next week. As you know, Kotetsu is transfering to Yukueshirezutsurezure and debuting on tomorrow at their biggest live yet at Club Citta. Codomomental’s new idol group, Seireki13ya (Seireki Jusan ya), will be revealed on December 15.
And despite this being overwhelming enough on its own, Codomomental really went in for the kill because they just revealed that there’s a new Tsurezure member debuting on Friday. Who is not Kotetsu.
It’s finally here, friends. Yes, I refer to the MV to promote the Identity Crisis EP from Kaqriyo Terror Architect, a record that was released in October and somehow feels like it’s still trying to earn the respect it deserves. The title of this post refers to a message that Papermaiden sent to the Team in the wee hours, in which it was suggested that perhaps one view this production not at work, for which it may be neither suitable nor safe, a qualifier that could be extended to public transit, school, where baby Jesus can see and judge you, etc. It also refers to lyrics! So keep this context in mind for a second, as you’re no doubt itching to press play and finally get to dig in.
But don’t let the various stuffs distract you too much, as you should focus on the song, because it’s a pretty good song!
There is a dwindling handful of groups that made up what I considered to be a core of high-quality idol back when Homicidols.com was transitioning from a twinkle in my eye to squalling newborn, and even among their number are a very small few who are still regularly releasing material and seem to be on the move. That leaves the groups like Party Rockets GT in a weird space, beloved of the boss but rarely mentioned, as they perpetually clip through the cracks.
Nonetheless, they’re worth checking up on fairly regularly, and a good while of doing that teaches one the rhythms of management’s business logic, and so it was that I started to hover over PRGT (and others) more in the past week, wishing/thinking/hoping that they’d be getting out some kind of release before the year was out. Not everybody delivered, but Haruka and her merry band of upbeat loudols certainly did:
Whee! It’s that time again, friends — Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da, who’ve been uncommonly quiet over the last few months on account of relentless touring and stuff, would really like it if you’d take their newest song for a spin. Of course the usual two-hour rules officially apply, and of course we shall relentlessly disregard both the letter and spirit of those rules.
Confession: When YouTube was all, hey guy, there’s this SPARK SPEAKER thing, my first and overwhelming thought was, I wonder how much heavier they can take this. Instead, it’s more like Classic SPARK SPEAKER!
Of course, there’s no way to actually purchase the thing yet, but keep paying attention to SPARK SPEAKER and you’ll find out.
Codomomental love to tie loose ends before the year comes to a close. With Tsuyame’s recent departure, Not Secured, Loose Ends lineup changed again, with fans (okay, me) fearing another hiatus while hoping one of the auditonees will shine enough to be able to step into the group. While it’s impossible or undesirable to literally replace a member, Yukueshirezutsurezure is a very demanding group, taxing on screams for everyone on top of regular vocals.
And it seems a more-than-appropriate, refreshing person has stepped into the light. I have no doubt she’ll be great. The only hiccup? It’s Kotetsu from Kaqriyo Terror Architect.
Announced at Kaqriyo’s latest oneman live by their manager, Kotetsu will effectively transfer to Tsurezure on December 7. As one of the two founding members, it is hard for any fan to imagine what the Enfants Terribles’ vibe of Kaqriyo will change without the tiny bundle of joy and sunshine that is Kotetsu.

Of course, who cares what I think when BiSH is absolutely raking in cash for WACK, and the train seems to only keep accelerating. Look, it’s another video game tie-in (like right after making fun of that)! They’re like in all of the media! Even more than they used to be!
“stereo future”, the single, is out in December, but we get the video today:
Or, humorously, they shared the link late last night before the video had even officially published, leading lots of people* into I-didn’t-read-the-tweet-shut-up confusion. But it’s not something to miss, so of course I was up early for the express purpose of winding up wishing that I hadn’t done that. Continue reading →
Well if this isn’t a pleasant surprise — after graduating all of their original members post a final show right here in the good ol’ USA, Candye Syrup is back. Or, more accurately, a unit called Candye Syrup is back, because these are totally new Candye Syrup members:
