Orange Caramel to Make Laziest Japanese Debut Ever

With After School long-debuted in Japan, it was only inevitable that Orange Caramel was going to follow suit. It seems like a perfect fit, right? Japanese people love kawaii shit, Orange Caramel bleeds kawaii out the rectum, everyone's happy.

But then this shit dropped into our laps like a sack of turds.

AVEX have officially outdone themselves in laziness this time. You see, Orange Caramel are set to debut in Japan with a set of remakes. Fairly standard procedure, right? Remaking a song doesn't take much work, you just need to swap the lyrics around and maybe make variant costumes based on the original concept. No big deal, everyone else does it too. But at least when everyone else debuts with remakes, they do it with their own material.

Orange Caramel are doing it with a remake of Candies' "Yasashii Akuma," a song that apparently was a big hit back in 1977 (with a remake of Magical Girl called Mahou Shoujo as the B-Side, but we're not discussing that right now). Ignoring the bizarre logic behind choosing a song from the late 70s, the whole thing makes TOTAL sense from a Korean standpoint. Forget trying to write new lyrics to your own songs, why not just take a Japanese song that's proven to be popular in Japan already? No need to pay all those pesky localization "experts," choreographers, or concept designers, and ESPECIALLY minimizing contact with those dirty Japs!

Now you can see why I had an extremely difficult time keeping my face away from my palm after the news of the official Orange Caramel Japanese debut came out.
What's worse is that Orange Caramel are absolutely butchering the original song and concept. Candies' Yasashii Akuma was this slinky cabaret sexy (for the time) song and dance.



You'd pay fap to see Lizzy and Nana do a sexy cabaret concept, Raina be damned. But no, instead we get this.



It's like AVEX told Kyary and Fruit Ninja to gangbang Candies' original Yasashii Akuma, fed it crack, and let it give birth to Orange Caramel's remake.

MTE, Kyary.
Orange Caramel are set to debut on September 5th, and from the looks of the short PV, it's not going to be very good.
