Those blessed enough to be at Nagoya’s Club Saru on New Years eve were able witness a priceless event: the momentary resurrection of the most charmingly upbeat pop-punk idol unit ever assembled, THE SPUNKY.
So I kinda messed this up a couple of weeks ago by being too lazy to check the calendar on my own site (fight me), and what we saw before was THE SPUNKY’s last live on their original home turf in Nagoya. This past weekend, though, they had themselves their actual final live, in Tokyo, and of course it was a tear-jerker because what kind of animal are you if you can’t get a little emotional over an idol’s last live?
Thanks for the tip on the video, Jim!

Good morning, lovely people! The Corenament rages on, now down to the Final Four (coming in a bit), and the timing has its own bittersweet element; THE SPUNKY sort of rocketed into this guy’s consciousness, and no doubt that of many others, during their surprising-but-deserved eventual third-place finish in the 2016 version.
This final live in Nagoya, their old home base, we’ve known about, but it finally came yesterday:
As you know, THE SPUNKY are going to be wrapping things up in a few months and taking their high-energy pop punk with them. That’s sad! But from now and for a while, you can download their song “Reviving Energy” for free by following these simple instructions:
Forget the punny titles and forget being clever; this is as saduation as there ever was one.
Couldn’t resist terrible portmanteau, though
This was from yesterday; I just got to look at it this morning and regret absolutely nothing:
This. Holy crap, this is magnificent. It’s like being inside of David Lynch’s brain, or a fantasy-booked DotsKaidan show. Idol managers need to plan to do things like this more often. Continue reading
In the latest episode of Maniac Checks in on THE SPUNKY, we find our hero facing two interesting pieces of news about the pop punk princesses. The first, sweet holy Hanukkah, they’ve done 777 lives?
Number now actually higher
But this is cool; so Yuhi did a solo set because I believe Rira had school stuff (oh, the perils of high school!). That she’s a really good singer is far from a secret, but seriously check this out: Continue reading
I spied this on Twitter last night, just a couple of minutes of THE SPUNKY, live, doing their thing in wholly different outfits than their previous punk-meets-idol look:
Apparently also big fans of Fresno State football and/or football players named Fresno!
Say, THE SPUNKY fans, do you happen to know of any new stuff happening soon?
I’d been wondering lately what the little punk princesses had been up to since Seira’s graduation, and they happily provided an answer in this little snip of live video:
I know there are some big THE SPUNKY fans in our circle — what’s next for them?
What official Twitter doesn’t always provide, fan Twitter often does instead:
Reminder: Among others, THE SPUNKY are involved in the Idol Matsuri competition — support our kind of idols!
