Patrick snagged this one for the Idolmetal group, and though we have it listed on the calendar(!), it’s too good to pass up. Himekyun Fruit Can, big sisters of Fruitpochette and right at the top of the idol rock heap, have an album on the way for the day after Valentine’s. That’s, like, pretty much a year after their last (very good) album.
A Kick to the Brainpan (yes) will also feature solo tracks for Mai (who doesn’t age) and Honoka, with the songs composed by a whole slew of bands. More details here.
HKFC is a totally pro unit with a pretty long history at this point, so it’s always weird to feel like they’re relatively quiet compared to others, but then I remember their management’s bizarrely low-key approach to digital marketing, and I nod grimly because it’d be awesome to be able to see more of them.
This is their most recent; may this new kick to the head be at least as thrilling.
