Let us clear ourselves, emotionally and spiritually, after the horrific purge that was yesterday; those who’ve taken to referring to it as Black Monday certainly have the right of it.
Good thing for us that there are still plenty of idols out there, many of whom do good and cool things that are worthy of being held up as whatever you need to recover, even for a bit. For instance, what of last year’s Corenament winner, Minna no Kodomo-chan, who managed to make a ton of Best Of 2018 noise without taking home any awards? Honoka and Cinnamon are still kicking out there, and they’re still the front of loud and chaotic music, and their performances are still, well, kind of inexplicable:
Fully recognizing that the back panels make choreography even on a big, open stage a challenge, can you imagine trying to do much more than what they already do on a space that large, with a band around to boot? Hence it really is all about the sound — well, the sound and the inexplicable image of those two girls with those things on their backs kind of turning and twirling and tilting and stuff — and letting their one-of-a-kind music win out when you need it.
We took some hits yesterday, friends. Old favorites are gone, and there’s chaos surrounding what we once felt so certain about. As you can see, there are in fact ways left to us to move on.
