Seven Minutes Enduring a Zenkimi Surprise

This is the life of the fancy idol blogger:

“Oh, all right, Zenkimi’s doing the announcement thing at the ass crack of dawn. Cool, cool. Maybe a song teaser? That’d be fun. … No, wait, that’s not the usual pattern for them, and they always say it’s a twitcast if it’s going to be a twitcast … OH GAWD NO, THIS IS IT, MASHIRO’S LEAVING, ISN’T SHE? THIS WAS HOW THEY TALKED ABOUT MENE. NO WAIT I BET IT’S YOTSU SHE WAS ALWAYS SO LAZY ABOUT IT.”

And then you remember that idol is the stupidest hobby in the world, easily the least rewarding, but also so fleetingly very rewarding: Continue reading

I Am Definitely Ready for Zenkimi’s New Single

Well, gang, the idol gods continue to smile upon us, and now it’s time to get our very first listen to the latest single from Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da. Previously untitled, it’s now “せきららららいおっと”, which I’m sure has a nice translation or at least a clean romanization, right? Anyway, enjoy.

You cats know the drill by now. Click through on the link in the tweet if the teaser window is still open, or click through here to access the track’s forever home. Continue reading

At Last, a New Zenkimi Single

For one day at least, idol is radiating heat and excitement and fun again. Even some of the most essential players in our corner of the game are meaningfully (for a Westerner, at least) active. Like: Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da! New single! Nameless!

The New Zenkimi Video Is Such a Trip

Hey, have you ever wanted to know what would happen if you left Team Codomomental in charge of reimagining the “DEADMAN” video as a new exclusive for Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da? OF COURSE YOU HAVE. And now you can see it for yourself!

I particularly enjoy the break where Yotsu goes Full Yotsu and shows off the skills that she’s been slowly vampiring away from Shidare for the past several months. Next up? Milcboy. Continue reading

This Is My Kind of Savage Garden

I have this thing, see, about bands etc. that have misleading names — Massive Attack being the ones who started the little obsessive observation — and Savage Garden was always right at the top of the list. I remember the first time the voice on the radio (which was a Top 40 rock station, back when those things existed) promised a “new one from Savage Garden” and I got excited because hey, that sounds like it might be kind of awesome! If I’d known that I’d instead be getting a well less funky Australian Hall and Oates, I’d have managed those expectations better.

Regardless! This is about Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da, whose Egoistic Eat Issues is now in stores, and what better way to celebrate than to get out the second video from the album:

I love the little stories that Zenkimi tells in their videos. Continue reading

Zenkimi Released Their Update to ‘Untitled Choir’; Album Watch Is On!

That sneaky, sneaky braintrust at Codomomental managed to head-fake the world this morning by first putting out news about a bunch of new media appearances for their Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da flagship, then offering up a surprise in the form of the first song from Kaqriyo Terror Architect; despite the impending release of Egoistic Eat Issues, one could be forgiven for thinking that the teased noontime announcement would be … well, anything. It could even be a boat video!

But which one? Try an old favorite.

Zenkimi Says, Welcome to the New Hell

Egoistic Eat Issues is (holy crap) just a few weeks away, so expect the Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da promo train to be kind of relentless. Which, great! Go ahead and share your music! Because as we all know, these two-hour windows are only two-hour windows in spirit.

The good stuff, as usual, after the jump! Continue reading

Come Listen to Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s ‘Infantry Dystopia’

I woke up and saw a warning tweet from Zenkimi. “Bring headphones.” It said.

“Oh, they must be doing another twitcast,” I thought like a jerk.

NO DUMMY IT’S THE FIRST TEASER FROM THE NEW ALBUM!

Got the goods after the jump.

I Hope You’re Ready for a New Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Album

If you are, maybe the world is.

Egoistic Eat Issues(!) will grace us with its presence in September. It will undoubtedly have enough synths to start a cosmetic surgery clinic in Napa. Continue reading

I Actually Managed to Save the ‘New’ Zenkimi Track

Had a little hosting snafu (again), but we’re back in business! And with plenty of time to be able to politely share the latest two-hour teaser from Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da. Or, more precisely, a remix/re-recording of an old song (but a great one) with Mene and Togare:

The goods after the jump. Continue reading
