KNOW YOUR IDOL #12: 電影と少年CQ (Cinema And Boy CQ)

電影と少年CQ (Cinema And Boy CQ)

On this new episode of the Know Your Idol series we will get to know more about 電影と少年CQ (Cinema And Boy CQ), a unique and theatrical idol duo.

If you have been following this website, you may remember that I spent so many good words for 電影と少年CQ (Cinema And Boy CQ) thanks to their latest album The Picture Show Of Chronic Déjà Vu. The best thing is that my love for them is somehow reciprocated, since they want to visit Italy so much.

Let’s find out more about this unconventional idol duo through this interview, in which they talked about their deep friendship, their passion for movies and of course anything regarding their group. Enjoy the interview!

So here’s another idol group that wants to come in Italy. They also deserve an award because they’re the first unit saying they want to come here, but not just to eat pizza. Let’s be honest, we all know they’re going to eat pizza too if they come here, you can’t escape pizza; but I love that they have deeper reasons to love this country. So let’s defeat that virus soon, so that we can work to bring Cinema And Boy CQ and other idols here in Europe!

CHIKA RADAR #23: PeepSiLL!

CHIKA RADAR #23: PeepSILL!

Rock idol group PeepSiLL! just released their first song; they are also holding their debut live show right before the end of the year.

Even though I’m always searching for unique and crazy stuff, I also enjoy more standard and catchy music every now and then. In fact, this time we’re going to discover a recently formed group which doesn’t try too hard to be the weirdest thing out there: so let’s give a warm welcome to the girls of PeepSiLL!.

This unit came up a few months ago introducing themselves as a four-members rock idol group, which says literally everything you should expect from them. Finally, after a not-so long wait, last week they released their debut song on their YouTube channel: here’s “S.S.S. (Stereotype Symbol Sacrifice)”.

As expected, it’s nothing more than a typical J-Rock song; but it’s a nice J-Rock song, which is why we’re talking about them. This is the kind of stuff you put in your alt-idol playlist because it sounds catchy and you’re always happy when it comes on shuffle, although you’re never actively searching for it. I’m not sure it’s really a positive thing to say, but whatever. They also have this simple and black-based aesthetics which I don’t dislike, mainly because it’s at least different from the usual over the top costumes.

Since we’re here, let’s introduce the four members of the group:

  • 愛洲 るな (Aisu Runa), the inevitable hikikomori of the group who loves ice cream (who doesn’t though?)
  • ​星宮 かな (Hoshimiya Kana), with her tomboy-ish look and some nice cosplay skills (check her out here)
  • 唸凛 あゔ (Unari Avu), who for some reason cried in front of Shibuya station and wants to reach 300 followers (you’re almost there, girl)
  • ​餅 ごはん (Mochi Gohan), whose goal is ti be on the news when she dies (hope you’re not there yet, girl)

PeepSiLL! are going to hold their debut live on the 27th of December, so let’s see what they’re going to do after that.

KNOW YOUR IDOL #11: 棘-おどろ- (Odoro)

棘-おどろ- (Odoro)

The new episode of the Know Your Idol series is about 棘-おどろ- (Odoro), a very underrated and entertaining idol group with an alternative rock sound.

If I had to think about the most underrated idol unit, 棘-おどろ- (Odoro) would be one of the first name which would come to my mind. I almost never see them mentioned in the Western alternative idol fan communities and even I didn’t get many chances to talk about them. However, I’m very happy that this new episode of the Know Your Idol series is about this group.

With songs inspired mostly (but not only) by alternative rock music, Odoro gave us an interviews through which we will get to know more about them, like their musical tastes and what inspired them to become idols. Enjoy the interview!
