CHIKA RADAR #29: 負け犬とクズ (Makeinu To Kuzu / Losing dog Waste)

Today on Chika Radar we are going to discover 負け犬とクズ, or Losing dog Waste; a recently born group for fans of dark and metal idols.

When it comes to bizarre names, idol groups are often an interesting category to look at. I mean, who else would think that Losing dog Waste is a good name, if not a Japanese idol unit? Maybe a grindcore band, but let’s ignore that for now. In any case, the group’s original name is 負け犬とクズ (Makeinu To Kuzu) and they’re not really punk-ish, although their music is still quite heavy.

Makeinu To Kuzu was born this year and their line-up currently includes five members:

After their debut which happened last August, Makeinu To Kuzu recently released their first singles, which you can find below.

The first one is called “Illusion Requiem” and it gives symphonic metal vibes right from the beginning, featuring choir-like vocals, church organs and a neoclassical solo. Despite the dark and atmospheric elements, the song brings some heaviness with powerful guitar riffs and some growls here and there.

Lately, the group released another singles called “HANGEKI KATARUSISU”, which sounds more idol-ish (especially during the chorus) than the previous one, while also keeping the rock-metal elements; this one also seems less gothic-symphonic, except for the slightly creepy waltz-rhythmed parts.

From these first releases, we can say that Makeinu To Kuzu doesn’t sound that bad. In my opinion, “Illusion Requiem” has a better and more insteresting sound, although “HANGEKI KATARUSISU” is quite enjoyable as well. Their aesthetics seems to suggest that they may lean more towards gothic-oriented music, and I personally hope they’ll do that in the future.

CHIKA RADAR #28: MystericGirl

MystericGirl hasn’t released anything yet, but from their live shows they look very promising. Let’s get to know these idols with Chika Radar.

As you should already know, Chika Radar usually intercepts unknown signals from new unidentified entities; in other words, it’s all about newborn idol units. This time, though, the group we are going to talk about has been around for more than one year; despite this, there are no MVs, singles or any kind of releases from them yet. That’s why, as always, we have to thank iColony for allowing us to see high quality live videos from these obscure idols. Anyway, it’s time to talk about MystericGirl.

First of all, they are under Cmajor Works; I’m saying this immediately because they are not even mentioned on the units section of their website, which confused me a bit when I started searching informations about them. The group’s first line-up has been unveiled in August 2020 and they gave off strongly dark-tinged vibes; while their sound is not that dark, they definitely lean towards that side of the music world and their aesthetics is gothic-like as well.

Currently, MystericGirl features five members:

  • ハルカ (Haruka), in charge of green
  • 四葉ひより (Yotsuba Hiyori), in charge of yellow
  • 有栖れあ (Arisu Rea), in charge of violet
  • 椿あやね (Tsubaki Ayane), in charge of orange
  • 藤白ねむ。 (Fujishiro Nemu), in charge of blue

The group has been quite active with their live shows and, thanks to iColony, we get to see their performance at GOTANDA G2 of last August.

As we said before, they a slightly dark idol unit, but they also feature the usual idol music catchiness in their vocal lines. Their intense and emotional rock/metal sound is often enriched by symphonic elements and gothic-like vibes; the result of this combination perfectly matches their aesthetics with black and refined outfits. On a side note, I love those bass parts they have here and there.

The only thing I need from them now is a release of any kind and in any format, from a digital single to a full length CD anything goes. I’m begging you, guys at Cmajor Works: let me support them and listen to their music.

CHIKA RADAR #27: 幻想ばっどえんど (Gensou Bad End)

On this new episode of Chika Radar we will get to know more about the metal idol group 幻想ばっどえんど (Gensou Bad End).

Welcome back to your favorite idol-discovering column, IdolOnChaos’ Chika Radar! Idol groups still popping up during these hard times is a very good sign, and we can’t miss the chance to talk about them. Today we are going to find out more about a group we mentioned last week on this website thanks to the release of their first MV: Gensou Bad End.

The unit, which unveiled its members last July and then debuted in August, presents itself as a duo of dark-dressed blond girls holding a noose in their hands; I don’t want to make assumptions about them, but I’m quite sure that this is your average sugar-filled idol group. Sure, Akuma and Urara may be very cute, but that doesn’t mean that their music is as adorable as their looks.

Luckily, as I said before, they recently released their first MV for “Tōkyō Shōjo”, which allows us to clear up any (non-existing) doubt regarding their music. So let’s take a look at it.

And… surprise surprise: it’s a very metal-sounding song! Don’t tell me that’s what you expected, I’m not going to believe you.

I must say that the vocals of the verse remind me a lot of Wagamama Rakia’s “Rain”, except this one is definitely less refined and more straightforward, or more metal in other words; that aside, “Tōkyō Shōjo” is quite enjoyable, featuring some gloomy and calmer parts among the aggressive ones.

They also have another single called “Zettai Watashi Shugi” which you can listen below and a third one on their online store, so I guess they had a good start. Hopefully we are going to get lots of good music from them in the future!
