Video: BABYMETAL's First English Interview

Heavy Metal Idols Featured on Otaku-Verse Zero

Hey guys, this is Patrick, Editor in Chief of this here Crunchyroll News. Hope everyone is having a mellow weekend because it’s about to get very metal and mental in here...


I don’t know how many of you know about my other line of work…namely, co-hosting a Tokyo-based web show called OTAKU-VERSE ZERO which can be seen here on Crunchyroll. Anyway, I wanted to share a recent episodes of OVZ with you which offers the first English language interview with BABYMETAL. Perhaps you have heard of them before! They are a heavy metal idol music act -- a splinter group from the Sakura Gakuin idol group -- who created shockwaves when we wrote about them here on Crunchy News.


What follows is probably the weirdest and funniest time I’ve ever spent in front of a camera…and given the nuttines that abounds on OTAKU-VERSE ZERO, that's saying a lot DEATH!
