The Black Box has arrived, and The Other One – Digital Gallery has opened its exterior doors. The restoration process is underway. Join us as we talk about the contents of the black box, and what we can see of the digital gallery so far and what we guess might be in its future.
Fox Day 2022 has arrived. This brought the end of The One, and the introduction of The Other One. No, we’re not kidding. It is a digital gallery opening near the end of April, and nobody out here knows for sure what it is. But that doesn’t stop us from discussing it. Oh no. So, join as we break down the announcements and make many probably-wrong guesses about what is coming next.
We start off ’22 with an exploration of the subtleties of the costumes of BABYMETAL. What stories do they tell? How did they evolve? What does costume construction entail in general? It’s complex and interesting, perhaps more than you might have guessed. Maggie, experienced cosplayer, takes the reins and guides us through this fascinating terrain. Join us!
Now that the Metal Resistance has ended, we look back at highlights for us as fans and for BABYMETAL as a group, with the help of several fans who joined us while recording. What were your favorite moments from the Metal Resistance era, which moments stood out for the group? Join us as we talk about some of them!
Armed with an epic translation (thanks to funnytoss and Capable-Paramedic) of Kobametal’s “10 BABYMETAL Legends” book, we walk through a small proportion of the highlights of the 10 chapters (and of other things we were reminded of along the way), covering the major concerts and storylines across BABYMETAL’s first decade. Join us!
The 10 BABYMETAL Budokan sets have arrived, and the seal has been applied. We talk through lots of stuff. Vinyl editions arriving, our experience at Dragon Con, the 10 BABYMETAL Budokan sets now that we have video of all five pairs of shows. The countdown to the seal, the video that saw them ascend the stairway to living legend. Quite a lot to discuss this time, join us
At the beginning of September, we joined novelist A.J. Hartley at Dragon Con in Atlanta to do a panel called “10 Years of BABYMETAL.” Beth Giles, organizer of the “Silk Road track” that this panel was part of, joined us as moderator. This is that panel.

As BABYMETAL heads toward the end of the 10th anniversary celebration, museum exhibitions in Japan were announced as well as a book written by Kobametal, covering the decade of live shows. BABYMETAL cryptically revealed that at the conclusion of “10 BABYMETAL YEARS,” they will be sealed from the world, disappearing from view until the seal is broken. We discuss this and other recent news. Join us!
The 10 BABYMETAL Budokan World Premiere stream happened, showing footage of the most recent of the Budokan shows, the most recent show BABYMETAL has performed. We discuss the show and stream (spoilers: both were excellent), and we talk about the announcement of the various editions of the 10 BABYMETAL Budokan shows that were announced afterwards (The One editions, Limited editions, basic editions, etc.). Join us!
