Novelty idol / metal band’s new single fuses death metal, pop, jazz, and other musical genres
Death Rabbits, an idol / metal novelty band, has released a new single entitled “Usagi no Kimochi” (“Rabbits’ Feelings”).
The video features a fusion of musical styles – incorporating elements of death metal, rock, jazz, pop, etc. – that the band simply refers to as “Japanese death pop”.
Death Rabbits is made up of teenager idol singers Yuzu Ookawa, Emi Mochizugi, and Karin Yasui – as well as their armor-clad stormtrooper manager, Bucho, who bears a strong resemblence to something from Mamoru Oshii’s Kerberos Panzer Cop series. You can find out more about their music at their official Japanese home page here.

Ayami-chan writes her resolution for this year as her Kaikizome (書き初め）。Pay close attention to her beautiful brushwork.
Muto Ayami (武藤彩未) is a Japanese singer and model under the agency Amuse. She is a former member of the idol groups Karen Girl’s, Sakura Gakuin and it’s sub-unit Twinklestars. It was announced on April 29, 2013 that Ayami would be debuting as a soloist.
Here is some olds clips from Karen Girl’s (Su-Metal first band) as they were guest at the Oha Suta TV show.
Oha Suta (おはスタ Oha Suta?) is a children’s TV show which airs in Japan in the morning on weekdays, and it is produced by TV Tokyo. The show’s full title is “Oha Suta: The Super Kids Station”.
Here’s Su-Metal performing in Karen Girl’s in front of a MASSIVE crowd in case anybody didn’t know that she is actually a very seasoned veteran in the idol scene. Already part of a huge group and performing in front of huge crowds since the age of 11!
Karen Girl’s (可憐Girl’s) was a Japanese pop idol group from 2008 to 2009 under the label Geneon and the agency Amuse. The group was formed as a teen idol group that featured three elementary students. The group released their first single, entitled “Over The Future”, in 2008; the title song was used as the opening theme for the anime Zettai Karen Children. After the show ended in March 2009, the group dissolved and each girl went their own way in their career.
Karen Girl’s were Ayami Mutō, Yuika Shima and Suzuka Nakamoto
