  • Concert Review: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Concludes Her Hugely Successful 4th World Tour

    04.August.2018 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu recently announced that she will release her first new album in four years as well as embark on a hall tour around Japan.

    The singer set out on her 4th world tour in May and wrapped it up with her final show in Shanghai on July 28.

    This is a report of her world tour with photographs taken from her shows in Europe in May, the US in June, and Shanghai in July so you can live or relive the excitement felt at every concert in each country.

     

    The tour was a recreation of her Halloween themed concert titled ‘THE SPOOKY OBAKEYASHIKI ~ PUMPKINS STRIKE BACK’ which was originally held in Japan last year to acclaim. Wanting to bring the show to fans around the world, Kyary and her team took the entire haunted house stage set with them overseas.

     

    May 20, 2018. The first stop on the schedule was London, and this was Kyary’s first time in the capital in two years. The moment she stepped out onto the stage, the cries and cheers of fans who had been waiting in anticipation for the singer’s return echoed through KOKO.

    The first song on the tour set was Kyary’s internationally beloved hit song Fashion Monster. This was immediately followed by Invader Invader which served to heat up the excitement in the venues even more. Kyary greeted each crowd in each country in their respective languages which the fans loved.

    Before beginning Harajuku Iyahoi, Kyary taught the crowd the cues so everybody could join in. This song was a huge hit in Germany. Seeing everybody sing the words ‘Harajuku Iyahoi!’ together was a magnificent sight to behold.

     

    It was then time for a costume change. Kyary put on an outfit that was more mature than her usual looks and gracefully sang Slow Mo.

    It was a very different performance, with Kyary showing off sharp dance moves together with the obake dancers.

    The second half of the tour set consisted of classic, very well-known tracks from Kyary such as Mondai Girl, Ninja Re Bang Bang and Mottai Night Land. In America, fans copied Kyary’s dance moves for Cherry Bon Bon and sang their hearts out to the tune of Tsukema Tsukeru.

     

    The final song of the main set was the perfect theme for a Japanese haunted house setting: Crazy Party Night ~Pumpkins Strike Back~.

     

    There were cries for an encore at every show on tour. In Shanghai, the Japanese fans who had gone to the show shouted “Kyary!” while the Chinese fans called her by her nickname they gave her in China, “Pon Way Way!”

    Kyary returned to the stage for encores, this time dressed as a ‘happy spirit medium.’ She performed Easta and her newest song Kimino Mikata. The final song of the shows was of course her international breakthrough number PONPONPON. She was joined on stage by the dancers and spirits. Fans sang and jumped along at every show before it finally came to a close.

     

    After the Shanghai concert―the last night on her tour―Kyary posted her thoughts on Twitter regarding her shows overseas.

     

    — きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ (@pamyurin) 2018年7月29日

    My world tour to London, Cologne, Berlin, New York, San Francisco, LA and Shanghai wrapped up today. The shows overseas were amazing. I received so much energy from all the energetic fans, so with that I will work hard every day towards the shows in Japan so I can give the best performance! thank you(๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)”

     

    It’s been 7 years since the world was introduced to PONPONPON, a song that went on to become a viral hit and led to sudden international exposure for Kyary. She has performed solo outside Japan many times; the fact she can make fans in each country she visits go crazy only singing in Japanese is an extraordinary thing―a testament to her popularity. That’s proven by how she’s able to make people smile and laugh wherever she performs.

    Years may have passed since her debut, but the artist Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is loved the world over. She is received warmly by people because those fans know she wants them to have fun – and have fun together with her.

     

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s schedule is booked up once again from September where she will set out on a hall tour across Japan. Those who have yet to see her perform live must make it their mission to do so and see how she has matured and how far she has come.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s New Song ‘Kizunami’ to Feature as Monster Strike The Movie: Sora no Kanata’s Main Theme

    06.September.2018 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    2018 is the year of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, who released her new song Kimino Mikata earlier this year and recently concluded her 4th world tour. Excitement and anticipation surrounding the singer has been high, and this has become even more so with the recent announcement of her first new album in four years. Titled Japamyu, the brand new record will drop on September 26.

    In more recent news, it’s just been announced that one of the new songs on the album, Kizunami, will be used as the main theme song for the upcoming anime film Monster Strike The Movie: Sora no Kanata set for release on October 5. The film is an original anime adaptation of the hit mobile game Monster Strike which has over 45 million players worldwide.

     

    The new song Kizunami will be released as a standalone single on September 7 ahead of the album’s release.

    The feature film was created by XFLAGTM, who produce entertainment under their slogan Ketahazure na Bouken o (“Embarking on an Exceptional Adventure”). It is produced by Orange who are one of the foremost leading studios in the production of gorgeous CG animation. The film is graced by an exceptional voice cast including Masataka Kubota who plays protagonist Kanata, Alice Hirose who plays the heroine Sora, and voice actor veteran Kōichi Yamadera who plays Senju.

     

    ■Monster Strike The Movie: Sora no Kanata Music Video

     

    The story takes place in a world where 13 years ago, part of Tokyo suddenly breaks away and floats up into the sky. Our protagonist Kanata (Masataka Kubota) is your every day high school student who began living with his grandmother after his parents passed away. He encounters Sora (Alice Hirose), a mysterious girl who came from the sky. The two of them work together to help save the citizens whose worlds are fated to war. Kanata, who still doesn’t know exactly who he is, must learn to mature alongside Sora and his allies as they navigate through the war.

     

    The film’s main theme song Kizunami was written by music producer Yasutaka Nakata who ensured to maintain the story’s theme of strong friendship. It’s an oriental and jaunty track in which you can very much feel Kyary’s essence and outlook. A collaborative music video was also released that features the song together with scenes of the movie.

     

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Comments
    In the movie, the protagonist Kanata meets characters like Sora and the vampire siblings Tōya and Yūna who he fights and grows alongside while discovering the importance of the bond between friends. I think the lyrics [of the song] convey things like how it’s good to have friends and how wonderful it is to be connected to the heart of those important to you you want to protect. I particularly love the title ‘Kizunami.’ I believe it’s a heartwarming pop song that makes you think about the people precious to you.

     

    The full tracklist has also unveiled, including new songs like Oto no Kuni and Enka Natrium, as well as a cover of CAPSULE’s famous song Koi no Hana (2001). They are all songs that Yasutaka Nakata himself has much confidence in. Digital pre-orders for the album will open on the iTunes Store on September 7 so be sure to check it out.

     

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will hold a special live event at LakeTown’s 10th Anniversary Special Live on September 30 at 4:00pm to promote the release of the album.

     

    It’s time to get excited about the next big release from one of Japan’s most internationally celebrated artists.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Announces 4th Album ‘Japamyu’ to be Released on September 26

    17.August.2018 | MUSIC

    2018 has been a busy year for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu who digitally released her new song Kimino Mikata and recently concluded her world tour.

    But she’s showing no signs of stopping yet as she has just announced her long-awaited fourth studio album Japamyu which will be released on September 26, 2018. Some details have also been unveiled in addition to the CD cover art.

    The 10-track album includes hit songs like Sai & CoHarajuku Iyahoi and Kimino Mikata as well as a cover of CAPSULE’s famous song Koi no Hana (2001). As the album title suggests―a fusion of “Japan” and “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu”―it will include a range of new oriental-sounding tracks different from anything we’ve heard before.

     

    Kyary joined hands with art director Mitsuo Shindo for the new record’s cover art, who has worked on over 1,000 CD jackets. It is a new front from the singer and the image of a representative artist of Japan who has just completed her fourth world tour.

     

    The album’s first press limited edition will include a special photo book featuring the above artwork as well as a DVD of Kyary’s final 23-song performance of her 2017 KPP Japan Iyahoi Tour at NHK Hall.

     

    It has been one year and eight months since her last hall tour. Tickets for the new Japamyu Hall Tour 2018 “Hoshikuzu no Cherry Martini” go on sale from August 18.

     

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Comments

    Sorry for making everyone wait so long. My first album in four years ‘Japamyu’ is finally here! You can look forward to enjoying an oriental vibe. There’s lots of songs that are going to be fun live, so definitely listen to the album and come to the hall tour!

     

    Art Director Mitsuo Shindo’s Comments

    I’ve watched her since her debut, but to actually finally be working on one of her designs makes me so happy. I think it might come as a surprise to some people, but it feels natural to me. I’m a fan of Yasutaka Nakata to begin with! The most important thing for Nakata right now too for Kyary’s projects is probably what’s catchy. My aim was to create something fantastical to show off to the world, and something that’s Japanese fantasy. Just what’s about to happen with Kyary! Please look forward to seeing it.

    22.February.2020 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Yasutaka Nakata performed a two-man show entitled “Yasutaka Nakata x Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Presents SPECIAL DJ & LIVE TOUR 2020 YSTK×KPP Vol.02” at Toyosu PIT in Tokyo tonight on February 21, 2020.

    The background music provided before the start of the show was music that was like from a car game. As excited fans waited with bated breath, the PlayStation startup sound rang throughout the room, at which point Kyary shouted “Time to dance!” and appeared on stage together with Nakata. They opened the show with Invader Invader -Extended Mix-.

    Dancers joined the stage next for Minna no Uta -Extended Mix- and PON PON PON. The audience responded with great pleasure to Nakata and Kyary’s high-speed and ingenious song mashup. It was non-stop jumping and dancing as the performers continued to roll out more bangers like Enka NatriumNinja Re Bang Bang, and Mi, the bass grabbing hold of the crowd’s heart at every moment.

    When Kyary and Nakata’s set reached its middle portion, they went full hardcore club mode as they performed Level Up from Nakata’s solo album Digital Native. Things got crazy when they mashed Kyary’s Fashion Monster into a trap beat with Star Wars as a Star Wars-style opening reel ran across the LED monitors.

    They continued with a string of internationally-known pop songs, like Kyary’s Tsukema Tsukeru and Sokenbicha no Uta, as well as Harajuku Iyahoi. The ever-changing set kept the crowd on their feet with its mix of live music and club music.

    Kyary and Nakata weren’t anywhere near finished yet however. They returned to mashup mode with Kyary’s Cherry Bon Bonーa track from her early days with a Eurobeat soundーand performed a cover of AIAIAI, which Nakata wrote for virtual YouTuber Kizuna AI, during which Kizuna AI appeared as a hidden character.

    The internationally iconic SEGA logo sound then rolled across the venue before Nakata and Kyary performed a special version of Ichibanka which Nakata wrote for Japanese reggae band Shōnan no Kaze. The song is used as the main theme for the PS4® game Yakuza: Like a Dragon which will be released worldwide this year. Kyary provided some cute “Soiya Soiya!” chants during the song.

    In the last spurt, they rolled out the hit tunes Kizunami and Mondai Girl before wrapping up with Oto no Kuni. Kyary pulled fans into her “Japamyu” world while Yasutaka Nakata smashed out some 8-bit video game beats.

    But fans needed more, and the call for an encore didn’t die down. Kyary came out and said excitedly, “Thank you for the encore! Who’d’ve thought I’d sing some Shōnan no Kaze?! ” She also thank Nakata, before announcing the release of a new digital single entitled KAMAITACHI. Release details are TBA.

    She also announced a mini 5-show tour to promote its release. The song’s lyrics have a traditional Japanese-feel to them, and so the tour too will take place at kabuki theatres around Japan.

     

    To wrap up the concert, Kyary and Nakata performed KPP’s pop anthem Sai & Co -Extended Mix-.

     

    Pre-sale tickets for Kyary’s “KAMAITACHI TOUR 2020” will go live on her fan club, KPP CLUB, on February 22, 2020 at 10:00 A.M (JST). Check her official website for the latest information.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Turns Voice Actress in Upcoming New Crayon Shin-chan Movie

    21.February.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE

    Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes is the 28th and newest anime film to enter the beloved Crayon Shin-chan series, which is set to release in Japan on April 24, 2020.

     

    Crayon Shin-chan is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshito Usui. It was first serialised in Weekly Manga Action in 1990, and subsequently received its first anime adaptation in 1992. Since then, it has become one of the most recognisable and loved series in Japan.

    The story of Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes is as follows: For many years, a giant kingdom fuelled by doodles created by humans has been peacefully floating in the sky. As time has gone by, less and less people have been doodling, resulting in fuel supplies running critically low. As the kingdom crumbles, doodles have been falling from the sky.  As the kingdom starts to face the threat of complete collapse, the kingdom’s forces soon get on the case, forcing the innocent people of earth to produce more doodles to save the kingdom. The kingdom just happens to be floating above the city of Shin-chan’s residence: Kasukabe. Knowing that the lives of many are at stake, the princess of the Rakuga Kingdom entrusts the Kingdom’s sacred Miracle Crayon to a hero – the five-year-old, mischievous and carefree Shin-chan. Shin-chan harnesses the power of the miracle crayon, drawing up a superhero team to save the world. Shin-chan’s three drawings jump right out of the sketch book and right into action in an attempt to save the day. 

    Voicing the part of the princess, who entrusts Shin-chan with saving the Rakuga Kingdom, is none other than Kyary Pamyu Pamyuーwho herself is a huge fan of Crayon Shin-chan.

     

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song Kimi ni 100 Percent (2013) was used as the 15th opening theme for the Crayon Shin-chan anime series, and maintains the record for being used the longest out of all of the series’ opening themes. It was also used as the opening theme for the 2014 film Crayon Shin-chan: Intense Battle! Robo Dad Strikes Back. Kyary even appeared in the series as herself. Her history with the series has led her to being recognised as a member of the Shin-chan family.

     

    Kyary received the offer to voice the princess in the upcoming new film after the production team heard her voice work for the character Mecchaka in the NHK Educational TV series u&i. They were impressed by the voice work, and initially didn’t know it was Kyary. After finding out it was, they sent her the offer.

     

    Kyary is a huge fan of Crayon Shin-chan and read the manga religiously. She is now taking this opportunity to challenge herself to some real seiyū anime voice acting. But it doesn’t stop there either, as she will also perform the opening theme for the film too. Titled Rakugaki Ouen Taishi (“Support Ambassador for Rakugaki”), the song is centred around the Rakuga Kingdom.

     

    Kyary and Shin-chan released some words of their own regarding this dream collaboration. Read them below.

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu | Comment

    “I appeared as myself in the anime series once before, but this time I’m challenging myself to some authentic voice acting as the princess, so I hope everyone enjoys seeing a completely different side to me. I’ve been collecting and reading the Shin-chan manga since elementary school. Whenever I scored 100 in a test my dad would buy me a volume. I was bad at studying, but Shin-chan helped me work hard. He’s like the hero who scooped me up and saved me! As a fan I’m super happy too, since this movie is based on a part from the manga series. I hope everyone who loves Shin-chan will look forward to it too!” *Translated from Japanese

    Shinnosuke Nohara | Comment

    “Kyary-chan, I’m super happy I get to see you again! So you’re gonna be the princess who trusts me with the Rakuga Kingdom treasure, the ‘Miracle Crayon,’ right? I’ll make sure to catch your love baton. And you’re gonna be the Rakugaki Support Ambassador with me too. I’m way too excited. We’re a dream combination! Enjoy yourself at the cinema.”
