Just about a year ago, with yami-kawaii becoming a more noticeable trend and idol as diverse as ever, Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da charged out of the gate and, on the strength of their second digital single, “ShitEnd | Placebo,” became a group to watch on the hard side of idol.
Their popularity has grown quickly, and with a new single coming up early next week, it seems like a good time to maybe get to know them better. They are, after all, among the more perplexingly enigmatic of idols, a group that embraces the looks and sounds of people who are interpreting “normal” through a shattered psyche; of all the groups doing yami-kawaii, Kiminosei seems the most primed to indulge in some ultraviolence.
But that’s an image, and idol is all about image; what really goes on in the members’ heads? This interview, put through the translation wringer by Phillter, was with Kiminosei and friends, and it reveals as much about how the group thinks as it does
how many ex-boyfriends they collectively have stored in a closet somewhere anything else.
Some fun moments:
Kisaragi: Yeah! We have many hard songs that are songs you can headbang to, so performing with bands is more stimulating.
Mogeki: It’s lonely when we can’t meet up. I cried while eating my donut all the way home.
Zen Kimi together: We are sick.
