BiSH, CARROTS AND STiCKS 

GUERRiLLA released on Apple Music a few weeks before the July 3rd release date. BiSH's 5th album is unlike anything prior, shuffling three different styles and approaches into one 14 track album. It's rampaging & aggressive, high energy & endearing, dramatic & epic and it changes song by song. This album rips with Punk spirit beginning to end as normal but with a lot 90's Alt in the mix. "FREEZE DRY THE PASTS" is what a 4th Nirvana album might of sounded like and "Yashashii PAiN" is Lo-Fi J-Grunge. "CHOP" is like a lost song from BiS' amazing IDOL is DEAD. "DiSTANCE" is a sharp opener instantly ravaged by "Tsuini Shi" a really intense and cool song with a...unique vocal. "MORE THAN LiKE" is a very nice song, so is "I am me." followed by the decent ballad "NO SWEET". "O.S" is excellent, featuring an amazingly badass Ayuni D rap in the verse. Oh my God I love this song it's so fricking cool, BiSH have never ever done anything like it. "Mada Tochuu" is an absolute pumped up JAM. "Identity" and "MORE THAN LiKE" are good simple songs. "FiNALLY" is badass, ,"CAN YOU??" is excellent, the finale "GRUNGE WORLD" is actually a nice mid tempo song that is not very Grunge besides the guitars in the chorus.

BiSH have evolved from the start, perhaps the best change is Ayuni D's emergence of confidence last year. She's changed from her modest indistinct parts on KiLLER BiSH to being an absolute weapon of attitude and Rock 'n Roll. This album is new territory for BiSH, it lacks the polish of previous records and also changes up the formula with a lot of new twists and turns. Previously they showcased this intensity in small bursts with "DEADMAN", "First Kitchen Life", "Am I FRENZY??" and "SHARR". But both KiLLER BiSH and The GUERRiLLA BiSH couldn't harness the power of these songs all the way and ended up being good but somewhat samey albums by the end. CARROTS AND STiCKS on the other hand is a complete work of Rock 'n Roll power and energy. It's the most creative and distinct work BiSH have yet to do. It's more than the same old, it packs some punches and is overall a jumbled, mismashed rampage. 

A really good record is going to have to come out to make this not be my album of the year. This is pure Rock 'n Roll music, this is more than Alt Idol style mixing, this is natural, this feels genuine. This is joyous, energetic and awesome all around. It's nearly as good as BiS' previously mentioned IDOL is DEAD, the best Alt Idol album of all time & one of the greatest true Punk spirit records, and although it doesn't have the tunes and super fun songs of the debut and FAKE METAL JACKET a few more listens might tell if this is BiSH's best album to date. CARROTS AND STiCKS obliterates everything else I've heard this year so far.

no problem!
ahhhh, in that case, "Aito took his martial art textbook" might be better. you might have to add a bit more explanation or change the wording, as i didn't make that connection straight away.

wow, you're planning on colouring it? that'll look awesome :P

sounds like a decent idea. there's a definite objective of the protagonists with a sense of urgency considering it's a disease, so the story will be gripping hopefully.

What sort of magic/force is Ari? (I'm reminded of the Japanese phrase "Nandemo ari", meaning "Anything goes", but in this case, it means "Everything's magic" XD)
I think it's great that the main character's can't use magic, because it makes their challenges more interesting than just a power fight all the time.

Also, what era is this? you mention Knights which implies medieval, but also police and schools which imply modern-ish.

It sounds like you have a lot going on in your first chapter, you might find it hard to fit it all in unless your storytelling pace is really fast, which might make it hard to follow. Each of those four paragraphs sounds like it could be at least a chapter in it's own right.

Do you actually know what they do yet, like a threat or magic or something?

Ari is a term I just came up with to call the magic of this world, never knew that it meant that. XD


I was actually hoping for this story to be my own spin on the magical girl anime/manga so the girls do get "powers" in a way, just not in a way that you'd think, they basically use certain magical tools to help them but they'll be incredibly weak tools. But what you just mentioned is in fact an idea that I have for a different story.

The era is modern, Knights is the name I just chose for the Users who protect the world profession.

I do know what they do to Astraea, you'll find out when the story is done.

suuper-san Thank you again for giving me advice I don't really have any one to check the mistakes perhaps in the future if I was to ever redraw this story properly with colour or ink I will know what to improve! :)  :thumbsup: :D

suuper-san he didn't steal it , the kids were given free books in school i just wanted to higlight that in his poor nation they don't have many books like this so this will be his only source of learning techniques.

Anyway thank you for reading and replaying. It helps a lot :D

Nice prologue. I have mixed feelings about him stealing the book though, although I understand the reason for it.

Also, not sure exactly what "Aito took one martial art's book" means. You don't have to say "one", you can say "the", or "a", which makes more sense. Maybe "Aito took the school's martial arts book", or "Aito stole a martial arts book".

Hopefully he does well in the tournament :P

BiSH's new song and MV "DiSTANCE" is very good! It's one of their take-off epics but with a really nice sound and a perfect line balance. Atsuko explodes in the second chorus with her best vocal performance yet, normally she is secondary, even though she has the most instantly noticeable look with her fancy glasses, so it was surprising and cool to hear that part. Chiiti also pops out. I can never decide if my favorite member is Ayuni, Atsuko or Aina. This is a good song overall and one to sort of break the standard BiSH formula, atleast in the verses. I keep saying it but it's surprising how the group seemed to stagnant and get caught in the same old thing last year but have now showed three distinct style and image changes in the last few months, released two awesome inspired EP's and ya...I'm thinking CARROTS and STiCKS is going to be a KiLLER album even better than The Guerrilla BiSH.

EMPiRE's new single "SUCCES STORY" ain't bad. EMPiRE have never struck me as an interesting or unique group, but they do some fun songs, and this one is enjoyable. Their outifts are...kinda dumb but, like every WACK group besides BiSH, but maybe their next album will be good.

I've come to really like ZOC's "family name". It has Seiko stamped all over it, the pre-chorus and the double bass rolls in the chorus are completely her ideas. It's actually a really good song, I like it the more I hear it. The b-side isn't good, but as a debut single it's pretty solid. I wonder how long ZOC will last...
