Dang you, Kyary! You messed up my new light posting regimen. Well, here it is, folks. The much anticipated Kyary song and video just came out, so catch it now while it still hovers in the hundreds of thousands of views rather than millions. I gotta say, this Kyary Kreation is not exactly rocking my… Read more.
It’s been a while since we’ve updated our Kyary Kyalendar. Here’s the new CM series. It used to be that popular songs were used in commercial campaigns to push products. Kyary tends instead to use commercials to push songs, in anticipation of their popularity. (Example: “Ninajari Ban Ban” and the au campaign.) Thus, odddly enough,… Read more.

How did I miss this one in my comprehensive G.U. review two months back? Here is Alien Kyary acting out next to the famous “Merlion” in Singapore with the song “Invader, Invader.” And here is an artful G.U. cm from last fall with “Fashion Monster.” It’s a worrisome sign of Kyaryan influence that I’m bothered… Read more.
