TOP 10 IDOL MV – December 2021

TOP 10 IDOL MV - December 2021

Happy new year! Let’s welcome 2022 with the usual list of the best MV’s released in December. Some pretty good ones came out at the end of the year, so let’s take a look at them!


10) PIGGS – NOT PIG

To pig or not to pig? That is the question, and PIGGS answer with a nice song with a vertical video. The red dresses of the girls, the catchy vocal lines and the pop-punk-ish energy in “NOT PIG” are all good reasons to enjoy this MV.


09) 15GERM – シューティングスター (Shooting Star)

15GERM keep releasing MV’s one after another, and this means they deserve a place on this Top 10. Last month we got three videos from them, among which I chose the piano melody and the complex beats of “Shooting Star” as my favorite, although I recommend you to check out the other ones as well.


08) FRUITPOCHETTE – 孤高-Captivate-

As one of the oldest groups of the alt-idol scene, it’s always nice to get a new MV from FRUITPOCHETTE. The powerful heavy metal sound of “孤高-Captivate-” features intense rhythms and aggressive guitars combined with the two girls’ vocals, which which is why we have been loving them for all this time.


07) MANACLE – BAN your HURT

The latest MV by MANACLE for “BAN your HURT” shows us the girls on a stage with a backing band, which is a pretty nice view. The catchy and intense idol rock sound of the song is also very enjoyable and proves that the group is doing really well.


06) 東京サイコパス (Tokyo Psychopath) – いいねパラサイト (Ī Ne Parasite)

In case you needed some more metal idols, let me introduce you to Tokyo Psychopath, which sound more or less like… psychopaths, indeed. If you are searching for a group with unconventional (at least for idols) looks and hardcore music, they are a good choice.


05) NELN – ストロベリー (Strawberry)

Despite having lost one member, NELN are still doing great. “Strawberry” is among their best songs (at least for me), with its delicate synth pop sound. Also, we got another MV with red-dressed girls, which should not be a surprise in December, right?


04) 神使轟く、激情の如く。 (Shingeki) – 神奏曲:ライトニング (Shinsōkyoku: Lightning)

I could just say here’s the usual Shingeki and you would probably get what I mean. Of course, crazy intense metal sound with some idol-ish parts, a bit of rap here and there, a catchy chorus and a breakdown. Yes, that’s literally what “Shinsōkyoku: Lightning” is made of, and that’s we love this group.


03) nonamera – NO NAME

“NO NAME” is the latest result of nonamera‘s dive in EDM and electronic music, and it sound quite interesting. Combine it with a city-at-night-themed video full of vivid colors and effects, and you’ll get how awesome this MV is, despite being only two minutes and half long.


02) situasion – I would prefer not to

There are not many groups like situasion, which means we have to fully enjoy every time they release something. To be honest, I completely fell in love with the gentle but intense post-rock-ish sound of “I would prefer not to”. I definitely need more stuff from them.


01) ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbukiminoseida.) – Underscore

Yes, we have been talking a lot about Zenbukiminoseida. lately, but we have our reasons. Simply put, they have been releasing great music (and videos as well), like “Underscore” with its unpredictable and complex mathcore-like sound featuring crazy screams and electronic beats.


Honorable Mentions

TOP 10 IDOL MV – September 2020

Top 10 Idol MV: September 2020

September is gone, putting an end to summer as well; IdolOnChaos also celebrated its first year of activity. Isn’t it a good chance to start another new thing? Starting this month, we are going to have a monthly chart of the Top 10 idol MVs. Are you ready? Let’s go.


10) 韻ふめ!どーぷちゃん (Infume! Dope-Chan) – Another Day

I may be biased towards them, but I always enjoy some new music from 韻ふめ!どーぷちゃん (Infume! Dope-Chan). Mixing pop and hip-hop, “Another Day” is a quiet song with an atmosphere perfectly represented by the shores of the video, featuring both melancholy and hope in the light of the setting sun.


9) CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL – 偶像少女B2F (Gūzō Shōjo B2F)

“偶像少女” (Gūzō Shōjo B2F) is not your average MV: it’s almost a short movie interweaving with live shots of the group, even with the music starting after a 90 seconds long intro. CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL tries to tell a story with their rock sound as its soundtrack, and it works perfectly.


8) 激情リフレイン (Gekizyou Refrain) – 逆転カラフリズム (Gyakuten Colorfulism)

When a group at its debut releases a song this good, you can’t help but listen to it at least once a day for a month. The first MV by 激情リフレイン (Gekizyou Refrain) brings us some good powerful metal music with two harsh vocalists providing a good amount of aggressiveness.


7) TENRIN – アーティファクト (Artifact)

TENRIN is a very promising unit and “アーティファクト” (Artifact) is a perfect example of their greatness. Their melodic alternative metal sound with just a tiny bit of post-rock is really enjoyable, not to mention the nice vocals of the five girls. I have high expectations for this group and they are not disappointing me.


6) The Grateful a MogAAAz – もっと燃えて生きたいもんだぜ (Motto moete ikitai monda ze)

Industrial rock idols sounds like a cool concept and The Grateful a MogAAAz proved it with their latest MV. Mechanical beats, acid synths and electric guitars blend together in “もっと燃えて生きたいもんだぜ” (Motto moete ikitai monda ze), while the girls fight with each other like in those good old martial arts movies.


5) meme tokyo. – スーサイド ボーダレス (SUICIDE BORDERLESS)

When it comes to weirdness, meme tokyo. are getting one of the strongest units; and at the same time, they sound really catchy. “SUICIDE BORDERLESS” may be described like a chaotic pop song, featuring slapped bass lines, mind-blowing electronic effects and melodic vocal lines.


4) ZSASZ – ときどきひかる (Tokidoki Hikaru)

While it’s not really the most unique video ever, I can assure you that you’ll find yourself watching the laser lights of “ときどきひかる” (Tokidoki Hikaru) many, many times over. Put them together with the five astonishing girls of Zsasz and a song mixing genres ranging from post-hardcore to hip-hop and you’ll see why.


3) PIGGS – クマンバチの独白 (Kumanbachi No Dokuhaku)

It wouldn’t be fair to exclude the new group created by the queen of alt-idol herself, Pour Lui. PIGGS deliver a very intense and catchy punk song with a really enjoyable hook, together with a one shot camera video showing all of the girls’ energy.


2) 始発待ちアンダーグラウンド (Shihatsu-Machi Underground) – ハレルヤ (Hallelujah)

We talked about this one before, so it’s only natural to mention it again in this Top 10. Shihatsu-Machi Underground take the psychedelic aspect of their sound to another level, literally forcing our minds to travel through unknown dimensions. The video is also very weird, which is a good reason to consider it as one of the best MVs of September.


1) NECRONOMIDOL – santa sangre

Not really surprising considering what they did, but NECRONOMIDOL‘s latest MV totally deserves the first place of this chart. The 80s synth pop with some hard rock hints of “Santa Sangre” combined with a video of four girls trapped in a bathroom going crazy and killing each other is priceless. Creepy and bloody as hell.


That was all for September; of course, you can find more videos in the Idol-Tube section. See you next month for another Top 10!
