Good news, BABYMETAL fans! I introduced BABYMETAL, the super cute j-pop and metal mix idol group in an earlier post. After gaining a large fanbase across the world, the Doki Doki Morning single with a t-shirt is now on sale to overseas customers! Maybe one day they will come and perform in the UK? If you’re interested here is the link to the overseas shop.
Their recent music video for their song Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!!!! has also been released, and they had their first English interview, in which you get to hear from the three girls Su-metal, Moa-metal and Yui-metal as well as their producer… who appears to be a skeleton. Watch their new music video here and check out the interview here.
What do you guys think of kawaii metal? I’m personally loving it! See you! Bye bye ~ ☆ﾐ(o*･ω･)ﾉ
When we think of female j-pop (Japanese pop) groups we think mostly of cute girly outfits, happy upbeat dances and pretty looking music videos. The kind of things we see from the currently chart topping AKB48 and other idol groups such as Morning Musume and Momoiro Clover Z. It is considered a very cute and ‘kawaii’ style of music, always bringing in fans and producing unique and interesting singles. From the outside, these three look like your typical adorable idols. However I don’t think anyone knew what to expect when they joined forces with metal, to create three person idol unit BABYMETAL.
An exciting mix of cuteness and darkness, Su-metal, Moa-metal and Yui-metal are all from the idol group Sakura Gakuin. BABYMETAL’s first single Doki Doki Morning soon became an internet sensation in Japan as well the rest of the world for being something so different. Although not everyone had positive comments to make, somehow BABYMETAL achieved the mashing of cute j-pop with the heaviest and darkest music style around. Their most recent video starts to bring in other styles such as hardcore dance music and even rap!
Aren’t they so cute? I found them really interesting so I thought I’d tell those who love cute j-pop groups about them also! Next up I’ll be reviewing my stuff from Nanoblock. Bye bye ~ ☆ﾐ(o*･ω･)ﾉ
