We know about Montero’s side project, Tau, but what if I told you that Kai was also doing some collaboration work, and you might be shocked to see her?

AAAAAAAHHHHHH KAI’S KAWAII!
They literally just had their first performance as part of this week-long festival doodad that Zekkyou’s been kind of in the lead on (as in, performing every day), and I was waiting for a teaser track to hit the Interwebs like how Tau did, but for naught. So far. And then those images happened and I didn’t want to wait anymore.
Here’s the promo art and what I think are the lyrics of the three songs they performed:

I’m also still not completely convinced that Coming Soon!! is the name of the thing. Like, I thought it was just a teaser for the project, and that now maybe it just hasn’t been updated yet, but the way that Kai and Akira are tweeting with the name … I dunno! That’d be pretty weird!
Here’s Akira doing her thing. She’s a solo idol who’s a lot like Kai, in that she can instrument and stuff and seems pretty cool:
The big question, as always, is whether this additional duo unit has legs of its own and lasts a while, or if it’s a casual kind of arrangement between friends, or even if it’s a launch pad for somebody to permanently join somebody else (or replace originals and the like).
Update: And it’s done.
