    Still can't get to this forum a lot of times. With my decreasing interest in Stardust idols the result is that I am only very rarely here.

    A few things I like at the moment.

    Deeply in love with MIGMA SHELTER:


    A little late (it is from 2016), but the first Tama Himeno solo album is great (the one from 2017 I haven't got):


    and of course her two other releases as Boku to Joruju:


    Love Minnanokodomo and Hamidasystem (which I was going to post here as well).

    Ah, and the ep or mini album by ねうちゃん is very beautiful:

    MiShel is a project of this year for me
    I like concept and releases of "........." (dots) very much, but they are not so good on lives

    Yes, Migma Shelter is the project of the year.
    I really like ........., even I was a little bit "underwhelmed" by the last release (I liked the noise parts but the songs were a little bit shallow for me, but still good enough to stay interested).

    YMM's "Talking Heads song" in a live version which works very well:

    My favorite song of this year "Trinity Dive" by "........." from their last release, so I can't name them shallow)

    ^that's okay, I just hoped for more. Shallow wasn't the right word maybe. Something was missing for me.

    I don't think you can found there something new for yourself, but you can post something new for us, if you want. And you can do it in english, no problem with language.

    As a curiosity on Netflix (at least in Spain) there is a documentary called "Tokyo idols" that explains what this movement consists of and focuses on the career of the idol Rio Hiiragi. For my taste it focuses too much on the fans / wotas and makes too many references to the sexualization of the girls but still and so it is an interesting documentary.
    In the same documentary Hyadain appears as producer of the last single of Rio, one of the idol group that appears in the documentary makes a cover of "Hashire!"

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6039532/



    Thank you for sharing this. I watched it with great interest.

    Of course, the whole concept is not very new. My first encounter with it goes back to Takeshi Kitano's Dolls, which is of 2002. One of the three novels in the movie deals with similar wota/idol relationship. This is apparently a modernization of Junichiro Tanizaki's short story, which was also made into a movie by Kaneto Shindo in 1972.

    I've seen the BBC version of this documentary, didn't like it much. - - - Dolls -> Kitanos last really good movie in my opinion. Tanizaki -> highly underrated in the "west".

    Speaking about obsessions: I am obsessed since sunday with 眉村ちあき.

    End of the year is almost here. So it is time for retrospect nonsense. What are your fav things these year and so on?

    Maybe I have to think longer about it, but I think the most important thing for me was to discover Chiaki Mayumura and maybe Sozelica. Best releases, would be somtehing like:

    Best Albums (Top 11)
    Seiko Oomori - kitixxxgaia
    George And I (Boku to Jorju) - 2
    Maison Book Girl - image
    RYUTist - Ryuto-geigi
    Haruko Tajima - Pink Hiziri
    Risa Satosaki - Sign
    Happy Paprika - Museum
    Batten Showjo Tai - Must Buy (Masuto Ban)
    Neu-chan - Oyasumi Luna Moth
    RECORIDE - TOKYO SYNTH PUNK
    And I am sure the new Tentenko album, but couldn't listen to it yet.

    Best EPs/Singles (Top 11)
    Avandoned - Hello!!
    963 - Lost Planet
    George And I - 2.5
    sora tob sakana - cocoon
    amiinA - Valkyrie
    Migma Shelter - Svaha Eraser
    CRCK/LCKS - Lighter
    Hamidasystem - Dero
    Daidaidai - Batsu batsu batsu
    ......... - CD
    You'll Melt More! - Disco Psychedelica

    I had a few things from 2016 that got me 2017. For instance the first Tama Himeno solo album or the first 3b junior album.
    And for some reason I can't listen to the new You'll Melt More! album. Everytime I reach the 3rd track I postpone further listening.
    I am sure, I forgot something.
