Let’s keep it dark today, shall we? I owe a few people credit for pointing out this one, but let’s give it to @AshLikeSnow17 for being the most recent. Here’s the vampiric solo idol Yajima Mai crushing “BLOOD RESOLUTION”:
That title though
It’s been a minute since the last time we checked in on Mai, who has to be pretty close to the only Kyoto idol on the list, but certainly no vocal slouch.
This is for her second album, BLOODTHIRSTY:

That art, though
It feels like we don’t spend enough time around the sort of classical metal idols, like Mai here with this kind of VK-inspired melodic power metal and the long-dead, always-thrashy Haloperi Doll. Yeah, punk and hardcore and good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll tend to be the driving force behind a lot of the idols we dig, but how many of us got here in the first place because of Babymetal? You know? Funny.
Speaking of, do you know what’s also funny?
