Mixed media project Lapis Re:LiGHTs is blending idols and magic in a new series of videos, performances, an anime, and (of course) an upcoming mobile game. The latest to debut is Sadistic★Candy, with their single “VIVI Rap.”
The fictional duo is made up of Yuka Amemiya as Angelica, a former top idol who is reinventing her image after a growth spurt; and Risae Matsuda (Luca Esposito, Astra Lost in Space) as Lucifer, a mysterious magical idol with a twisted personality. Angelica was once a member of Ray, a five-girl unit that has since disbanded.
Check out the new tune:
Three more in-series idol groups have new songs on the way in the near future.
