  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Kabuki Themed Concert Showcased in Documentary On YouTube

    19.August.2019 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s ‘Oto no Kuni Live Tour 2019’ has been taking the singer to various locations across Japan steeped in the country’s cultural heritage. The tour gets its name from Kyary’s song Oto no Kuni taken from her album Japamyu.

     

    Following the success of her show at the sacred Izumo Shrine in Shimane Prefecture―a region said to be the birthplace of Japan’s many gods―Kyary took her traditional show to Minami-za in Kyoto, the oldest theatre in Japan. What’s more is that she held it on the final day of Japan’s Heisei period before the country transitioned into the current Reiwa period. The concert fused Kyary’s iconic pop culture fantasia with traditional Japanese kabuki theatre.

     

    A 9-minute medley of the concert, featuring tracks such as Ninja Re Bang Bang and Oto no Kuni, is set to be played back live on NHK World Japan today (August 19) and again on NHK General TV on September 14. It will also feature a talk with Kyary and show host Shingo Murakami.

     

    A special documentary featuring behind-the-scenes footage as well as clips of the concert was uploaded onto Kyary’s official YouTube channel. The video showcases Kyary’s training for the concert carried out with kabuki actor Ainosuke Kataoka. Check it out below.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Yasutaka Nakata Joined by Kizuna AI at SUMMER SONIC 2019

    19.August.2019 | MUSIC

    Yasutaka Nakata is the internationally acclaimed architect of kawaii music and music producer of huge Japanese names such as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume.

     

    The DJ and music producer is known for having collaborated with a whole string of big artists, such as Kenshi Yonezu on the song NANIMONO as well as Charli XCX on Crazy Crazy. Despite having only just dropped his new song Pico Pico Tokyo (feat. Momo Mashiro) recently, he just released a new song entitled Kizunami (cover) for digital download on August 16. The track is a cover of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song Kizunami taken from her fourth studio album Japamyu which Nakata Produced. It is covered by virtual talent Kizuna AI who has almost 2.7 million subscribers on her YouTube channel.

     

    To celebrate the release of the new song, Kizuna AI appeared as a surprise guest on Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s set at SUMMER SONIC 2019 which was held in Tokyo and Osaka. In a very special collaboration, she sang the song alongside Kyary―the singer of the original track.

    As with the Osaka show, the RAINBOW STAGE at the Tokyo concert had an admission limit due to how much music fans were anticipating this stage.

     

    When the intro to Fashion Monster started playing as the first song of Yasutaka Nakata’s set, the crowd’s excitement went straight through the roof. But it didn’t stop there however, as it shot into the stratosphere when Kyary Pamyu Pamyu walked onto the stage, clad in a beautiful white outfit.

    Nakata and Kyary’s set was an energetic amalgamation of song mash-ups and alternative arrangements, treating the crowd to familiar hit after hit. It reestablished Nakata’s status as a spearhead of the industry.

     

    He joined Kyary in front of his DJ booth for CANDY CANDY and waved his hands left and right with the crowd to Kyary’s directions. The two of them rolled out even more big numbers including Invader InvaderPON PON PON and Ninja Re Bang Bang which also had fun new arrangements.

    When the intro to Kizunami started up, Kizuna AI’s chorus entered the fray at which Kyary asked, “Whose voice is that?” Kizuna AI suddenly appeared on the giant LED screen at the back of the stage, and the crowd reacted instantly. She riled everyone up by calling “Summer Sonic!” before joining Nakata and Kyary in a dream collaboration.

     

    The 19-song set was up with Mondai Girl and finally Oto no Kuni during which the crowd waved their towels in unison.

    Kizuna AI’s cover of Kizunami is now available for digital download and is streaming on Spotify.

  • Lolita Singer Luna Haruna Announces Surprise Solo Live Performance at Most Recent Concert

    05.August.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Tokyo singer and lolita fashion model Luna Haruna finished her premium solo summer concert at SHIBUYA TAKE OFF7 on August 4. The concert title Lupa and Aries no gastronomie was named after her single Lupa to Aries which was released earlier this year in June and is so far only available on streaming services. Haruna performed once in the afternoon and once in the evening with a live band. She performed a total of 28 songs, including some brand new hits.

     She launched into her concert with her hit songs Stertear, Kimi Iro Signal, Stella Breeze and Overfly. She then performed her two new fairytale-themed songs Lupa to Aries and Kaiten Mokuba live for the first time. 

    Afterwards, she turned to her fans and said:

    “I challenged myself to something completely new this time. I want to show you all a side of me you have never seen before.”

    What the fans heard next was an unexpected surprise. 

    She announced that she will be performing at Mt.RAINIER HALL SHIBUYA PLEASURE PLEASURE, Tokyo on November 16. The venue, packed with fans, could not contain their excitement, responding to the glorious news with cheers of joy that echoed throughout the entire room. 

    Her recent release Kaiten Mokuba follows the same fairytale theme as Lupa to Aries. The beautiful harmonies created by the strings pierce through the strong and pressing beat of the song. This gothic fairytale song is appropriately titled Kaiten Mokuba (Carousel) to further emphasise the distorted feeling of being spun around in endless circles. Luna is an artist who represents the lolita scene for lolita fans worldwide. This fairytale video is where her true self comes alive. Her new, mysterious visuals are a fusion of lolita fashion and Alice in Wonderland themes. 

     

    Luna Haruna Music Video: Kaiten Mokuba 

    The head-spinning music video shows Luna in different lolita fashion outfits. Each outfit explores the depths of a different character from Alice in Wonderland. Watch Luna spin her way through five Alice in Wonderland-themed lolita dresses including the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and of course, Alice.  

    Luna will also be singing the theme song for the upcoming anime film Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend Fine, which will premiere on October 26. This isn’t the first time Luna has been involved in the Saekano anime series. She performed the theme songs Kimi Iro Signal and Stella Breeze, which were the TV anime’s first and second anime openings respectively. 

     

    The anime film opening will be written by Miku Sawai, who wrote the lyrics for the TV anime’s first and second ending theme songs Colourful and Sakura Iro Diary respectively. Miku Sawai and Luna Haruna have become massive sensations in the news for their anime hits. Just what kind of chemical reaction will unfold when these two heroines collaborate on the anime film’s opening theme song? Please keep your eyes peeled for future updates.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu stars as herself in the drama My Family Goes Viral!

    13.May.2019 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will make a guest appearance in the 7th episode of the drama My Family Goes Viral (Mukai no Bazuru Kazoku) which will air on 16th May! Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s latest song KIMIGA IINE KURETARA became the opening theme song for My Family Goes Viral which stars Rio Uchida as the main character. Kyary’s last appearance in a drama was four years ago on the CX Kei drama series A Restaurant with Many Problems (Mondai no aru restaurant).

     

    For this episode, Kyary has challenged herself to the role of… herself!

    So, what’s the episode all about?

    As main character Akari Kagari (Rio Uchida) spends her days working at a café, her mother Hinako, a housewife, gets stuck deep into a social media obsession after posting a cooking video which got a like from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu! Just one like from Kyary as she was casually scrolling social media and all of a sudden, the entire Kagari family is plunged into chaos!

     

    And what was Kyary’s opinion on all this?!

    Q. What are your thoughts on taking part in the drama?

    I haven’t really taken part in any dramas in my life. I’ve rarely ever even been to a drama set so I was really nervous! As I played the role of me, there wasn’t any need to create a new personality or anything, so I just acted like myself and I had so much fun!

    Q. What was your impression when you watched the drama?

    It’s so now! I watch this drama every day and it makes my heart thud uncontrollably! After the characters took a small step into the world of social media, so much drama started to unfold! The opening theme song KIMIGA IINE KURETARA is also perfect to describe the world of the drama! I want viewers to enjoy the song along with the drama!

     

    KIMIGA IINE KURETARA became available for digital download and streaming from 10th May so please check it out along with the drama!
