Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Harajuku Iyahoi

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.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Sai and Co [[[[

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.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, the Ride

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.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Mondai Girl

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.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Kirakira Killer

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.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Family Party

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 Pamyu Pamyu & Yume no Hajimarinrin

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.
