Party Rockets GT Got a Nice TV Spot

This is really cool, you guys — you know that Future Standard show that often does significant segments on idols (in the past, they had Screaming Sixties and Q’ulle among others)? This time around, they did basically a full episode’s worth dedicated just to Party Rockets GT:

The Awesome PassCode Documentary Series Continues

Man, remember the last thing we had from PassCode on Future Standard? Phillter isn’t going to be translating a transcription of this one, I don’t think (but anybody who wants to should feel free!), thought I think the story kind of tells itself, as good documentary will:

PassCode. On TV. Translated.

I saw PassCode’s appearance on Future Shock make the rounds a little bit, but I am nothing if not one to redundantly share things on the off chance that you didn’t see it originally.

We’ve done Future Shock stuff before, like when Q’ulle was doing their Zepp tour early in the year, and when Screaming Sixties made an appearance. But PassCode might be the biggest of our flavor of idols to appear, at least in the time of this site’s existence, so it’s kind of a big deal!

More TV: Q’ulle, Screaming Sixties and Further Down the Rabbit Hole

And to build on this morning’s post, originating from the same Facebook update from /Quelle_official and thank you for it and I’m sorry to not post until now but I had to go to work and now it’s lunchtime and I’m free for like a minute, here’s another (slightly more recent) edition of Future Standard featuring not just Q’ulle, but Screaming Sixties as well, plus the pretty-good-in-their-own-right Candy GO!GO!

“But why would I watch a Japanese show that isn’t subtitled?” you ask. To which I reply, “Because it’s cool anyway.”

A Peek Behind the Curtain at Q’ulle’s Anniversary Show

As pointed out before, glamorous rock idols Q’ulle sort of shot out of the gate (and had the resources of a bigger agency behind them, still), and they got to have their anniversary performance at one of those real-deal fancy venues with amenities and like 1,000 people there and stuff.

I do kid a bit. Q’ulle are cool and fun, and they do a good job of bridging the gap between where idol is expanding and where most idol fans still are.

The Japanese show Future Standard caught up with them backstage and around the preparations for (and ultimate performance of) their anniversary show. Q’ulle is the beginning of the video, but you can stick around for some rock bands, too.
