LADYBEARD announces new unit DEADLIFT LOLITA with bodybuilder idol Reika Saiki

The strongest idol unit ever has arrived! Consisting of 2 active pro-wrestlers, gym junkies and kawaii idols, DEADLIFT LOLITA is here to redefine the meaning of kawaii.

Following his departure from idol trio LADYBABY last August, cross-dressing wrestler Ladybeard will continues his kawaiicore gimmick in the new idol group DEADLIFT LOLITA with bodybuilder idol Reika Saiki.

Ladybeard is the persona of 33-year-old Australian wrestler Richard Magarey, originally from Adelaide, who moved to China in 2006 to kick-start his martial arts stunt career in films, later becoming a hit in Hong Kong as a cross-dressing pro wrestler. In October 2013 he moved to Tokyo to take his career to the next level as part of the idol group LADYBABY, now known as The Idol Formerly Known as LADYBABY following his departure.

The new duo is set to perform 4 original songs at their debut live show on April 5, and in this new venture, Ladybeard’s trademark Kawaiicore screams are complimented for the first time by his clean voice singing.

The songs are written by the songwriter Shade, writer of the theme tunes for numerous Bishojo games, and ISAO, the highly skilled 8-string guitarist who has performed with many famous local and international artists including BABYMETAL.

DEADLIFT LOLITA’s debut song “SIX PACK TWINS” will be released on March 31. A short preview for the song is available on the group’s official website.

      Damn this guy just won’t quit

    • King of the Kats

      That hairy leg tho

    • They need to stop, they don`t seem to realise they are tainting japan, people think everyone is like this, it giving j-pop a bad image, this is the reason for a great dislike to j-pop.

        Yes Yes. I do not like the J-pop. I like the metal music. :) Oh and Ladybeard awesome. Another of my favorites Bucho (from DESU.RABBITS)

        ‘Tainting japan’. Okay sure, let’s pretend that isn’t both creepy and condescending at the same time?

        What’s the word for your sort? Japanophile? Weebo? Either way, these guys aren’t the reason people dislike J-pop (they aren’t even J-pop by the way, you uncultured egg) people dislike it because attitudes like yours runs rampant in the fandom.

        If you haven’t noticed, this guy is pretty popular in Japan. If he wasn’t, his career would have died already. Seriously, do you even read your own messages?

      Props to them. The haters are ridiculous (and a part of why the J-pop community is disliked) and need to learn to keep their opinions to themselves sometimes. Ladybeard and co can keep trying their best.
