Do you remember the first time you saw your favourite idol? It might not have been the first time you saw a picture of them, but the first time the primal instincts activated in your brain and the chemicals started flooding out, making you realise that yes, this is the person you want to support forever? Zsasz absolutely know how you feel and, in celebration of their second anniversary as a group, dropped a new music video for “Otaku no Uta!”
Victoria has nothing on this secret! Despite being in one of the nation’s most popular groups, Ayuni D has been keeping secret a little project for a while now. To the surprise of everyone, except the few BiSH fans who found out right away because of how distinctive her voice is, we’ve been thrust into the world of Aomushi (青虫).
You totally know Hayasaka Nanse even if you don’t recognize her name right away. She was a member of the legendary (at least around these parts) Shoujo Kakka no International, i.e. one of the most groundbreaking and seminal chika idol units of all time! Yeah sure, they never got “famous” but they certainly made an impression that still resonates with the idol underground. At the time, Nanse went by the stage name “Fukumaru Mochi”, and shortly after that group disbanded, she became known as DJ OMOCHI when she joined up with, yep, you got it, the beloved rap-idol unit RHYMEBERRY! See, I knew you knew her!
When RHYMEBERRY came to an end, Hayasaka Nanse didn’t join any new groups, but she didn’t fade away either. She maintained her social media presence and streamed live fairly frequently, stating her current role as a vlogger personality and voice actress. (Two frequent post-idol career paths.) And while I don’t fully expect her to entirely brand herself as an idol again per se, it’s very pleasing to see she still records new music on occasion, and now has even graced us with an MV that fits appropriately within the Homicidols canon. Are you stoked yet? Well, you oughta be! Let’s check it out!
Now that Q’ulle’s first major album is rapidly nearing its release date, of course it’s time for the arguable queens of idol rock to start promoting the thing like hell. And, yesterday, hell arrived:
Random outfit game: on point
I love it. Q’ulle’s always in a totally enjoyable weird place between idorock and outright rock songs (and, often, outright idol!), and this is such a great example. What a fun song. Wota will love the crap out of it.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Q’ulle release without multiple MVs and versions; this one’s completely different territory, even for them, though: Continue reading
