New PV Alert: Akishibu Project – Creaction

In this third live promotional video (also from their one man live on August 22, 2016), again show they are capable of rock arrangements. Like “Akishibu Way“, the live band rocks behind the girls- just look at the serious case of guitar-face going on back there! As the girls deliver …

New PV Alert: Akishibu Project – Akishibu Way

Maybe it’s the live band behind them, but Akishibu Project turn up the volume for this second promotional video from their one-man live on August 22, 2016. With the added complications that can come from a live band arrangement, I am glad to see that Akishibu Project rises to the …

New PV Alert: BILLIE IDLE® – Naki Sou Sunday

BILLIE IDLE®’s latest entry into the idol race is the no-nonsense 70’s punk sounding “Naki Sou Sunday”. You can practically hear Dee Dee Ramone count off “1-2-3-4” at the beginning of the song. The graphic overlays come straight out of MTV’s days as a music channel. This deceptively simple package …

New PV Alert: Sakura Cinderella – Summer Light Crescendo

“Summer Light Crescendo” offers us the girls of Sakura Cinderella in what appears to be a school pool. Yes, poolside choreography is excecuted idol-style in white one-piece swimsuits. But, the main point of interest here for you, my fellow overseas idol fans, is the English lyrics. The lyrics here are …
