I was on the fence about this one, the general enjoyment level aside, but opted to include it because one half of this collaboration is generally well-liked by people for its creativity, and the other is a living legend with deep connections to our kind of idols, so here we go.
Yesterday, the immortal Oomori Seiko, who the Number 244 described as “the patron saint of idols”, good friend of Pour Lui and a person who’ll get a very nice write-up if I ever get the Legends series moving, a woman who’s moved between idol and not-idol (real way, not Billie Idle way) and mother and back throughout her distinguished career, released a new MV including two … colorful characters.
They’re Namahamu to Yakiudon, Raw Ham and Baked Noodles, a completely self-produced indie comedy idol duo whose work can best be described as “variety show” — if anybody gets what idol is capable of doing in a stage setting, it’s these two. They’ve had a pretty great year themselves, for what it’s worth, and might be something that you want to spend some time with.
As far as the song goes, it’s nice, and I agree with others that getting a bump by association with Oomori Seiko is a huge win for anybody. Good on her, and good for her young friends.
