アンスリューム (Anthurium) – イズムが止まらない! (Izumu Ga Tomaranai!)

アンスリューム (Anthurium)

アンスリューム (Anthurium) keep getting better and they just showed us their power with a new live MV for “イズムが止まらない!” (Izumu Ga Tomaranai!).

Here we go with another live MV by アンスリューム (Anthurium); we met this young unit last year through our Chika Radar and have been waiting for something new from them.

As far as I’m concerned, “イズムが止まらない!” (Izumu Ga Tomaranai!) is probably their best song. Not the the previous ones were bad, but this is seriously great. Take an infectiously catchy chorus, a complex and sometimes bouncy bass line, a Hammond organ going crazy in the background and a lot of pure rock energy: this is what this track is about, and that’s awesome.

The video itself follows the same style of the ones we already know, so nothing really new here. Regardless, I keep enjoying their unmatching and bizarre outfits: how can you not love Enma’s nurse-sailor uniform? Not the the others’ are less beautiful anyway.


Once again, I want to remind you that next month Anthurium will hold their first anniversary live show. Can you believe that such an interesting unit is less than one year old? And they keep getting better too. Let’s definitely support them.

Chika Radar #7: Anthurium
In a few months, アンスリューム (Anthurium) are going to celebrate their first anniversary; they have released two live MVs to show us what kind of idols they are.
Every now and then you come across some stuff that does seem interesting, but not that much. Then, after a couple days you get back at it and say «wait, this is actually cool». And then you can’t stop listening to it. Yeah, this is what happened to me with アンスリューム (Anthurium), colorful idols named after this flower.


In my defense, I have a good explanation for my unforgivable mistake. It was raining that day, I just got back from work and I was tired and… Yeah, nice excuses. Truth is that I had listened only to “アンスデーム” (Ansudēmu), which didn’t really pique my interest. Maybe I was seriously too tired, because it actually sounds pretty nice: awesome bass lines, upbeat rhythms, 8-bit stuff, catchy and cheerful vocals… This is even more than just nice!


But to be honest, the moment I changed my mind about them was when I watched their live MV for “だだだっ” (Da-Da-Da), released some days before the other one. This is what made me really fall for them: a more rock-oriented tune full of energy with a chorus that got stuck in my head. I can’t stop singing it in my mind. Seriously, send help.


Anthurium are going to hold their first anniversary live next year in March, so they’re quite young as a unit; despite that, I already want to listen to some more songs from them. Yes, I need more Anthurium in my life, so I’m going to plant some in my garden until they release a new song.
