Any and all idol groups are welcome in this thread. It started off as a sort of metal-idol hangout, especially with Ladybaby and Death Rabbits, but if you have any new and unknown and weird idol groups to share, this is the place to do it.

Ladybaby & Deathrabbits Joint Live (Dec 30)
Oh for sure, but by idol standards they need to be shamed for the hamplanets that they are.
j/k but I think that most of their songs are about how the struggle is real, like how they wanna stuff their faces but can't get TOO fat, and they're relatively well accepted
The first group, on the other hand, genuinely made idol fans angry/disturbed at first.
they have a bit of a fanbase now though
You know, as much as I enjoyed BiS, I really find BiSH to be boring musicwise.
And yea, I bought their album. I don't ever go out of my way to play a song from it.
I saw them live and outside of a silly skit, the only appealing things were the crowd and merch.
>each girl represents a unique hamburger ingredient, and wears that ingredient on her head
First album coming out 2/17 then they are doing a tour in New Caledonia for some reason.
Well, they're technically coming to France for their first (I guess) internationl date, so I sort of feel proud.
Also, as I'll arrive to Japan almost just in time for their album, I guess I'll have some nice occasions to see them live .
How foolish of that dumb gay girl who sucks and is dumb and also gay!
Some alternative/mainstream mixed stuff, both plain and weird:
Black DPG / Natsu no Mamono http://natsunomamono.com/dpg/bio.html
Pikarin Shiina http://www.pikarin.jp/
Ready To Kiss http://www.ready-to-kiss.jp/
Rie's retweeted half of Rei's feed. Looks fun.
Mostly cigarettes and selfies. It's still there - https://twitter.com/ChuuuRie
I like that song a lot, it's too bad their album is hard to get. I guess that's to be expected though.
They played alongside AKB48's Team 8 when they went to the Philippines so it's cool they're getting some exposure.
I'm fucking done.
Fuck this shit.
playlist for some Aomori Rock concert footage from this year:
You'll Melt More, LADYBABY, BiSH, BILLIE IDLE, Especia, Bellring and more.
Please bow down to the queen!
New KOTO! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1g2oVijJlw
REI'S BACK BABY SHE'S GOT ENOUGH KNIVES FOR EVERYONE
And now Rie is 18. What's going on? Why is everyone suddenly getting old?
> I'm out.
Okay, that's a bit too much knives. This should be illegal.
Black DPG live is pretty crazy.
Produced by Narita Daichi 成田大致, one of Ladybaby's producers. He's foolishly passionate about rock, idols, pro wrestling and it shows strongly in his projects. A very interesting person with many connections but no mind for money.
its funny how uncomfortable he gets about talking with a girl whose time he is paying for but i bet he doesn't give it a second thought when he talks with a sales associate or waiter before committing to buying something
Idols sure are lucky to have white male journalists letting them know how oppressed and exploited they are. They could never figure it out themselves because the Japanese are taught from a young age to never think independently. Some idols have even been brainwashed to believe they actually enjoy what they're doing.
did this guy really think anyone cares about the same old "perverted japan" shit we've been seeing for a million years at this point?
i couldn't watch much more than a minute into his video simply because it was so boring and cliched.
I agree. Though it might just be because they are coming after BiS who were amazing and hard to top. I think BISH will probably be better in the long run though, due to actually having good singers. OTNK is pretty top tier, I'm looking forward to the new album.
It's Feedback Friday.
Oh hey a new Death Rabbits video looks like they're playing a small crowd at some outdoor shopping mall that's almost just old ladies and small kids I th-
>suddenly a million angry screaming wotas
wtf i thought it was people in this thread photoshopping the cigarettes and knives in her pics as a joke
Considering that minimum legal smoking age in Japan is 20, Rei is an even bigger rebel than I thought!
You think those outfits are bad?
A Q&A session. All I got is that Rei's favorite color is black and she doesn't like candy. Also I think someone's asked about her bust size.
Also, new You'll Melt More! MV .
They're pretty productive, it's really cool.
Interesting, just looked more into Natsu no Mamono after following them only loosely before (mainly because Antonio Honda is in it and I'm a DDT fan) and I didn't know the member with the white mask that joined this year is actually Mari Mizuta.
Yeah, they changed the girl. 辰巳リカ from Tokyo Joshi Pro (DDT) and Dear Stage.
Pic related, new and old Kendos on the left.
like I said, I only followed them extremely loosely, meaning checking their MVs out once they came out and that's about it. So yeah, I'm not exactly what you'd call a fan.
Yeah, the two other original girls also left to join Tokyo Joshi Pro, but one of them quit wrestling already.
KOTO will destroy all who gets in her way! Especially very gay dumb nerds who stink like Kit-Kat!
True, her newer songs with Sawa were pretty eh, and Galaxy, although its really good, didn't completely blow me away like when I heard something like 推定スウィーティ for the first time
>tfw Death Rabbits retired Yuzu's hot pants
Is your body ready for this and the future tour that will surely follow ?
How much does folder/folder5 were popular in japan?
Like KOTO always says! "This nigga don't even look real, nigga lmao she look like a damn doll, nigga"
It's time to drop Kit-Kat and support the superior teen idol!
Do you think their producer monitor this thread (and eventually post propaganda) ?
It's not as if their is a lot of centralized "international" part of the internet where Necromidol is regularly mentionied, and they seems to be "aware" of their international fanbase.
(Also, I still wonder why New Caledonia)
Does anyone here like Bandjanaimon? Which member do you think is cutest, and why is it Yuzu?
Belly-chan's Birthday today (Japan time), she turned 15.
Apparently Bucho took her out on a nice birthday date.
Ano Clause currently doing a twitcast
>tfw no Christmas Yuzu to bring me some presents
I totally have to support a band that produced a song that has "megane moe~" as a refrain.
However, Chanmomo is the best girl
Random Rei sighting of the day: https://youtu.be/NWnPScUYQGU?t=175
Nani the fuck did you just fucking iimasu about watashi, you chiisai bitch desuka? Watashi’ll have anata know that watashi graduated top of my class in Nihongo 3, and watashi’ve been involved in iroirona Nihongo tutoring sessions, and watashi have over sanbyaku perfect test scores. Watashi am trained in kanji, and watashi is the top letter writer in all of southern California. Anata are nothing to watashi but just another weaboo. Watashi will korosu anata the fuck out with vocabulary the likes of which has never been mimasu’d before on this continent, mark watashino fucking words. Anata thinks anata can get away with hanashimasing that kuso to watashi over the intaaneto? Omou again, fucker. As we hanashimasu, watashi am contacting watashino secret netto of otakus across the USA, and anatano IP is being traced right now so you better junbishimasu for the ame, ujimushi. The ame that korosu’s the pathetic chiisai thing anata calls anatano life. You’re fucking shinimashita’d, akachan.
BIS? Those girls lacked talent, that's why they did the whole anti idol thing just to get attention, but at the end when they were put on the spotlight BIS just couldn't live up to the hype.
If the music is good it's gonna be listened in other parts of the world, that's exactly what happened to Babymetal, they were first noticed outside of Japan and when they were put on the spotlight (Sonisphere) Su-Metal and the Kami Band carried to whole thing to success.
Now BISH has more talent than BIS, but their music is bland and the turned down the anti idol thing a bit so the girls don't quit like they did with BIS, maybe they are gonna be bigger than BIS but i haven't checked BISH sales to call them successful or nah.
Saying that someone like Yuffi or even Pour Lui and Uika lacked talent and putting Babymetal as a counter-example is hillarious. Only Su is a decent singer and I wouldn't put her over Pour Lui vocal wise.
Babymetals music isn't better, it's easier to swallow since its watered down metal with catchy pop melodies worked in. It then blew up in the west because of the "oh Japan, you so crazy and adorable" effect that lolis doing metal naturally creates.
BiS never got the same kinda spotlight that Babymetal got, they were never pushed to extend that Babymetal was by their label. Their gimmick guaranteed that they'd never be more than a underground cult act.
>watered down metal with catchy pop melodies
and BiS wasn't watered down rock with catchy pop melodies?
BiS never got as big as Babymetal because they were just not as good. Musically, performance wise, and talent wise.
They couldn't play at the Budokan, fuck, they couldn't even sell out their last show when they had to settle for a lesser venue.
If you don't think that they were trying to make BiS popular as much as they could, you are severely retarded and know nothing about their producer.
>Saying that someone like Yuffi or even Pour Lui and Uika lacked talent and putting Babymetal as a counter-example is hillarious.
If they are more talented why none of them succeeded after BiS disbandment?
If you have real talent you're going to succeed regardless of what happens.
Suzuka was thrown to a musical style she didn't even knew existed, she was put on a project with zero budget that no one thought is going to be successful, honestly, when was the last time metal was profitable in Japan? X-Japan more than one decade ago?, she was put on front of talented musicians without knowing if she could properly handle a real band, well.. you get the idea, the point is that Suzuka has always been pushed and thrown to uncertain situations by Kobametal and she has always answered and surpassed everyone's expectations, that is proper talent.
Pour Lui just didn't like the guy, so she always annoyed him every chance she got but they overcame this eventually, maybe there was sexual tension between them and they finally had hate sex (the best kind of sex) to get over it, who knows, you know how women are.
Ash was watered down rock? Stupig was watered down rock? Idol is Dead was watered down rock? Alright then.
Your whole argument is that Babymetal is commercially more succesfull so they must be artistically better. Well, in that case AKB48, Exile, Arashi and literally every other Johnnys group out there are more talented than the Babymetal broads.
And Matsukuma had little say when it came to the direction that their gimmick would take, that was all Watanabe, who pushed them in the anti-idol direction. A direction that pretty much made sure they'd only ever get a cult following at best.
Also, Biskaidan gigs were a 100 times more entertaining than Babymetal concerts are, but sure, Babymetal is sooo much better performance wise and their bland metal shit is pure greatness.
The disbandment happened less than 2 years ago, getting new projects of the ground takes some time. Not that I think any of them become mainstream sensations, their projects are all more or less niche projects, which is alright, since mainstream success isn't something you can judge talent and quality on.
>never been to Japan
>never been part of the idol music scene
yes, please go on and educate us with what little you scraped off message board posts made by foreigners in your position
keep being butthurt, faggot
He is basically a money grubbing jew that tries to squeeze as much money as he can from fans. He enjoys putting up outrageous ticket prices for events. Oh yeah, BiS was very "anti" idol even though he had them parading around like some high priced idol experience.
just take some deep breaths and control your autism anon.
It's the final date of their first one man tour, that's why.
I would be very salty if they broke up a little bit more than one month before any new occasion for me to see them live. Can't wait for the 02/13
okay good that was about ruin my day and also rest of 2015, they have so much potential I can't wait for them to become bigger and bigger. I guess since it's their first one-man tour it's proof that they're on their way.
I really hope so, and I intend to see as most of thei live as I can during my six months in Japan.
(The only drawback is that they're mainly playing in Osaka, so I guess it'll be a reasonnable amount of live. I'm really curious to see how their handshake event and stuff are organised.)
Billie Idle has some nice songs. I like the gimmick they have going on.
I believed in Pla2Me but that is completely dead in the ground.
>We'll invite LADY BABY to our NHK WORLD TV program, and present with an original trophy!
I wonder if it'll be hosted by that tubby ginger otaku "expert" who is in every otaku video ever including this one
spaghetti will be spilled
All the idol otaku I have met in Japan have been awesome. They were really happy that a foreigner knew about the scene. Not many normies must be into the music scene.
The one linked in the other post
He's in every other otaku-related video I see on youtube.
god damn otaku anthropologist
you just know that he has a stash of loli in a safebox somewhere
there was some faggot on here saying that you'll melt more's you are the world album was up there for jpop album of the year along with platonic planet
nigger i just listened to you are the world and it sounds like fucking generic idol rock garbage
what the fuck is wrong with you nigger
I think they had a good run from the time when they did the One Piece opening. But it was basically just a decoy 'group' around Akina anyway.
I was a bit upset when she reappeared on the scene with gravure photo books and then married some burned out comedian who's ten years older than her.
There are now pictures as well. Hopefully a video a soon.
Also, it seems Rei may have converted to Islam.
So, what's your take on Namakopuri? Dunno if it counts as new, unknown or weird really or if they've been discussed in a previous thread but I can't help loving Namakopuri's Trap and Attaraiina Japan.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBV2c0UZU54 (super high quality video)
i like this remix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMf_RoMhaDw
thats about it. i don't know what it is about their music and voices in particular, but it doesn't really do anything for me.
i thought this song was alright too until the rap came in
It's a tweet where Rie is speaking japanese but using the english alphabet.
Apparently, I'm into youtube culture. inb4 >cancer and there's this youtuber that I'm following.
They made a collab with LB. Wow
>1:51 for the m-m-m-money shot
Hey /jp/, do you know what countries does King Records do not ban in Youtube? I have been trying to watch this idol video with connections in US, Mexico, Canada, UK, Serbia and Japan, it still says they are banned in those countries. Please help.
Fuck YT, I had to hunt the video down for 30 minutes until a based ruskie pointed out that the video was included in the first BD volume of the anime the song starred at.
Anyway, sorry for asking here but I had nowhere else to do it, I thought it would sort of fit in the thread since they are seiyuu-idol (maybe not really).
> New Passcode album on Spring
> On man live at Tokyo Diver City on the 8/8
Feels good man
Well, as it is placed just after the TIF, I think they can drag a fair amount of people for this gig.
God dammit, the face of those poor kids while the wota are screaming like monkeys.
Yukueshirezu Tsurezure, new sister group to Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.
Sort of similar, but with much more screaming. Yami-kei style.
Friendly reminder that the Aidoru industry is only slightly less exploitative than the sex industry,
I like Chubbiness. Marino is a cutie. She followed me on Twitter.

the new dempagumi song is really good, after whats felt like a bunch of fairly meh releases
For the ladybaby fans. Love from Sulpa :3
That's all there was before anyone complains....
I discovered these cuties yesterday and I have to say I find them endearing and their performances uplifting.
cute girls and heavy machinery go along well
Prizmmy / 『LOVE TROOPER』
You creep them out and they hate you.
Way to deflect the question.
They treat these girls like trash. They control their personal lives like slavers, extract all their value, and then dump them so they can load up the next batch of naive young Japanese women.
The sooner the whole industry dies a fiery death, the sooner these girls can wake up from the lies they're being fed.
That's really all there is to it.
Of which I am an implacable enemy, but that's neither here nor there. The point is that the industry is exploitative in a way that exceeds even the high bar set by the entertainment business.
...shamefully shilling one of my favorite groups
P-please check them out a-anon... you may like their music
The reason for SU-METAL's success isn't because she's special, it's because she underwent years at Actors' School Hiroshima. Her and her sister are the products of pushy stage parents, so they've got years of professional training over most idols.

I was able to smile naturally in the camera test (Rei is a junior idol so she often has taken her picture for sale)
I could smile more naturally though
