Based solely on an image, a website and an association that’s now been dead for months, the announcement of ICE CREAM SUICIDE kind of blew the hell up over the last 48 or so hours. And what’s not to be excited about? Between the pastels and the extremely clever wordplay and the “are all of those girls holding guns?” of it all, one would be hard-pressed to not draw conclusions that this might be a project worth keeping tabs on.
And not even 24 hours later …

Thank you, Anna-chan! So ICE CREAM SUICIDE is going to hold a free debut live on Niconico Douga on Sept. 7 (that’s in two weeks, if you’re counting at home). How fun! More details, I’m sure, to follow. Of course, they held a sneaky-sneaky secret debut yesterday, but no video of that is yet known to exit, so.

You may have also heard that it’s not just ICE CREAM SUICIDE. Yes, as Viz Major pointed out in the original post’s comments, ICS got all the hype because of Anna’s involvement; there are other projects debuting with the same agency, Anfort Promotion.
Likewise say hello to:
Devil Gun! Kind of like if Resident Evil were real, and Japanese, and idol. PLEASE BE INDUSTRIAL PLEASE BE INDUSTRIAL GOD ASS WE NEED INDUSTRIAL IDOLS.
Panic Magic! There are, ahem, a lot of very similar visual elements at play here, but that’s fine, same agency and all.
I’ll wait until we actually get to hear anything before officially getting actually excited, but I’m pretty excited, you guys.
