Rev.from DVL’s 1000 year idol features in Young Magazine before her group’s disbandment on March 31, 2017. Don’t worry about Kanna, though. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of her.
While you’re at it, watch the group’s final PV or read my humble scrawlings here

What we have today are two commercials for SoftBank featuring Negishi Ai, Okunaka Makoto, and Anzai Naomi from PASSPO. You might know SoftBank from their other wacky, popular commercials featuring celebraties and nonsensical situations (this recent CM features Hashimoto Kanna and the dog dad). Hopefully, these commmercials are indicative of PASSPO’s rising popularity … right? Whatever. More PASSPO in the public sphere is a good thing. The commercials, released about a week ago, proves uncanny in its timing as I just finished watching a documentary on NHK about Godzilla and other Tokusatsu titled “Godzilla’s 60th Anniversary The Amazing World of Japanese Special Effects“. Of course, anything that features Maccochan kicking creepy crab-faced bad guys is good news for me.
Here’s one that’s about T-Points, whatever those are
And here’s another one about saving unused data like they were rollover minutes (remember those?).
They’re pretty fun, right?
Continuing my series: “Late to the Party”
Unless you’ve been burying your head in the sand (or burying your head in AKS or H!P), you’ve probably heard something said about Rev. from DVL. The Fukuoka idol group began life around sometime in 2003- you can read a great introduction to the group from Serenyty at Happy Disco. Their meteoric rise launched from the incredible internet buzz generated by their (now) most recognizable member- the “once in a 1000 year idol” Hashimoto Kanna. While I’m not expert enough in the group to tell you much about the group (read that Happy Disco post already!), I’ll certainly take a stab at writing about their major label debut “LOVE – Arigatou-“.
