I’ve had this song on my hard drive for nearly seven years but haven’t heard it til today!
New Kyary PV!
I don’t think I dig it quite as much as “ふりそでーしょん”; it leaves me sorta cold in the verses, but the chorus is delightful as always.
So Kyo was like “ooh I wanna do it like that Like @ Angel pv” and so he did. :)

Thoughts as I watch Nogod’s “Utsushiyo Horrorshow” PV
- I like how this song sounds like it could just as easily have been played by a quintet of slightly overweight and underweight long-haired white metal guys dressed in jeans and white high-tops and black t-shirts. And not by guys in maid uniforms and clown makeup. :)
- Whoa! Abrupt transition! (0:54) Works.
- Hey! I think I was in this venue once. One of my older students way back when I was at Aeon took me to see an all-Japanese Elvis impersonators show there? In Shibuya?
- This song has a lot of parts.
- Aw it’s over.

“WHO KILLED IDOL?”
I was meaning to post this earlier before the AKB thing happened and subsequently blew up all over the Internet. But has the impact/interpretation of seeing the BiS members soaked in (fake) blood and/or their supposed mission to off all idols (“XXXX8 first!”) changed after the Minegishi incident?
No, not really. If anything, a view like that would just fall in line with BiS’ (and their management’s) packaged, albeit very self-aware, “un-idoly” idols narrative.

Kyary’s turning 20 at the end of the month, so naturally she released a song about her “level up” as the PV implies. The Japanese consider 20 the beginning of adulthood, so all remaining major age restrictions, like drinking, are finally lifted.
The title is a play on the Japanese furisode, or formal coming of age kimono, and the English verb-to-noun conjugation for the suffix -tion. Furisodation is the completion of her transformation into a recognized adult.
Love the song. Love the PV.

Stoked to see them in a video finally, but man, they should really move around more or something … that’s such a boring backdrop and the editing is so sleepy.
I hope they put one out for both EPs!
Ever been in a conversation about visual kei PVs and decided to make a joke about something relating to them being mostly filmed in forests because you remembered having seen a whole buttload, but then some ignoramous asks you what you’re talking about because all they’ve seen are videos by DecoLa Hopping and SuG?
Me too!! That’s why, with the help of our local shoutboxers, contributors, commentors, and YOU(hopefully you’re already one of those), I’m going to compile a list of as many visual kei music videos filmed predominantly in wooded areas like forests, orchards, or other places where there are an abundance of trees(bamboo counts) as I possibly can for situations like this, and just for the fun of making lists of things. Also, nostalgia.
Every video will be categorized by date so that we can see how the concept has … well, not changed at all since the very beginning.
Honestly, this list is really tiny and I think maybe we’ve all just been embellishing.

Got a video in mind? Post it in the comments!
Just remember … if the band is ONLY playing in an empty field with tall grass, a ruined structure with trees far in the background, or the video only features stock footage of trees themselves, it doesn’t count. Half the video has to feature the band physically surrounded by actual trees or bamboo or hanging vines, basically. Look to the above for examples.
Luna Sea’s In My Dream with Shiver PV:
What would this band do without stock video of clouds?
I don’t know whether the rumor I’ve seen going around about a new Maschera album is true… but it’s not like I need an excuse to post Maschera songs.
