XTEEN What’s Next

So funnily enough, right after declaring my bearishness on XTEEN for all the world to see, they go out and update their membership rolls as of Ichica’s grad show and make it known that they’re not going anywhere thanks to a fresh release on the long horizon. Still bearish, though! Metal idol hasn’t panned out as well as punk. Nonetheless, if you want to know what’s up, John to the rescue.

XTEEN have had a few line up changes. Starting out as a 5 girl unit, they lost one almost right off the bat. Then they lost a couple members, gained one member. That was all cool, it happens. Now it seems we have lost another member, but we have gained a couple more. What is […]

It’s Another A.N.otheЯ Post, This Time with Music!

Hey, check it out — Dual Eye Rec zombie idol project A.N.otheЯ, which I’m only entering correctly so as not to confuse the SEO goblins, has a nice clip for us! Of course, this happened yesterday, and now I didn’t have the wherewithal, but I’ll be darned if the living dead who may be recruiting members via zombie bite are relegated to the Weekender. Fortunately, John has already doing the heavy lifting, so we get a post with very little Maniac energy!

I introduced A.N.otheЯ to you fine folks a little bit ago, well now we have something to hear. This was announced earlier in the day, if anyone was paying attention. 【拡散希望】 本日の19時にA.N.otheЯの1st.DEMOを公開します。 宜しくお願いします。#アナザー — A.N.otheЯ(アナザー) 公式 (@A_N_othe_R) June 18, 2018 How about a listen to what this new group, still under construction, sounds like.
