I’m really behind in my Kyary kyoverage. How behind? So behind that this video was already approaching 3.5 million views before I even noticed it. Anyway, alright, what do you folks think of this one? My take? Visually, this is Kyary at her very best and could only be the work of the visual genius Sebastian… Read more.
Well, now! Kyary’s definitely getting her groove back with “Sai & Co.” I missed this, which means I’m at least three months behind on my Kyary kyoverage. (Hey, kyome on! Her previous video was “Crazy Party Night”, fer Pete’s sake. Don’t judge me!) Yasutaka Nakata’s music here is bouncy and totally acceptable as a Kyary vehicle,… Read more.
I’ve fallen behind on things Kyary, but now I’m obliged to report the opening of the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu XR Ride at Universal Studios Japan (in Osaka). I confess I was getting ready to write Kyary off after her shark-jumping”Revenge of the Pumpkins” video, but Kyary once again rises like a Phoenix from the ashes. Kyary rules Kawaii.
The man behind Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s music is Yasutaka Nakata. The man behind her visuals is Sebastian Masuda: Overdue credit where overdue credit is due. He strikes me as an Andy Warhol type figure.
Well, we haven’t posted a new Kyary video for quite a while. Whaddaya think? I think the music’s boring, but the visuals reach acceptable levels of Kyaryan kraziness. Lyrics here at kashigasa. The song title means “problem girl” or “problematic girl.” A longer version of the video is coming out soon. This is Kyary’s first… Read more.
I’ve lapsed badly in my Kyary kyoverage. This video kyame out about three weeks ago but I wasn’t paying attention. Our intrepid J-pop specialist and Kyary reporter Superhappyawesome does the honors yet again here, with a translation and some excellent and informative kyommentary. Kyary kyontinues her kyaracteristic dadaist wordplay over otherwise fairly inane lyrics. “Kirakira”… Read more.
This new Kyary song is also the ending theme for the new Crayon Shin Chan movie. You have to transfer over to Youtube to watch the video. I can’t rank this song among my Kyary favorites, BUT it shows that she’s still got her head screwed on right (meaning, freakily askew) and is holding strong… Read more.
Kyary does it again. This is the song that was the background music for the ALOOK NEON glasses cm we featured earlier. (Sorry, the Toob here does not embed, so you will be redirected to Teh Toobs.) I hope Kyary does a video for this because it will probably be a good one. Like “Yume… Read more.
File this under “still way behind schedule on Kyary blogging.” Miru mirareru (See. Be seen.) This is the ALOOK NEON glasses cm from about three months ago. The hair curls read “Cool” (or so some commentators surmise) and the song, which has not yet been featured on this humble blog, is “Slow Mo.” It’s an… Read more.
I’m seriously slipping as a Kyary blogger. This came out more than two weeks ago! It has now glided past 1.5 million views. The words: Blogger Super Happy Awesome does the honors here, with commentary and translation of the lyrics, given in English, Japanese, and romanized Japanese, respectively. I’ll go out on a limb and… Read more.
