Geez, man, I don’t even know, ya know? I tweeted out something about Dempagumi.inc being the most based idol-pop group in Japan right now…a group whose background (or gimmick) is that the members all are former/still sorta are otaku, one of the more loathed sub cultures in Japan today. One of them, Moga, used to be a hikikomori. Yet here they are now, in an idol-pop group creating music that revels in being alive and, most importantly being themselves and spreading that message all over the world. Just…I don’t know, it feel so alive. Tara wrote something that really hits on it, read that. This is music for celebrating you.
Oh, and it sounds good! This isn’t the most manic they’ve been, but it still moves at a sugared-up hop. It’s less dramatic than either “W.W.D.” and less neck-wrecking than “Den Den Passion,” but it might be the most poppy thing they’ve done yet. With plenty of strange little twists to boot, whether it be the yells of “justice!,” the summer-festival-dance interlude or the way they say “breakdown!” before the breakdown. Thank you based Dempa.
