One of the most obvious glaring needs in idol lately, at least in this Maniac’s opinion, has been Osaka Shunkashuto not releasing anything in a year (that is, basically a lifetime in idol). Everybody knows that MAINA is everything good and right in music, but we want more, period. And more what? Rock songs? R&B? Amiina-esque alt-pop? Friggin’ soul?
We’re about to find out!

New Me will be released on the 31st. I’m already excited. The group has apparently already filmed an/the first MV for it, too, so we’ll likely be getting our first glimpse in soon.
For the record, they should feel completely free to give us “Baby Crazy” again. Like four or five versions of that, that’d be good.
UPDATE: Previously misidentified as an album for some idiotic reason. Probably because I wrote it at like 4:00 a.m. Thanks, Chris!
