Shinsei Kamattechan (神聖かまってちゃん) is a Japanese rock band from Chiba, Japan, formed in 2007. The band consists of Noko (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Mono (leader, keyboard, guitar, tambourine), Misako (drums), and Chibagin (bass, chorus). Their single "Yūgure no Tori" (夕暮れの鳥, Twilight Birds) was used as ending theme song of the anime series Attack on Titan Season 2.[1]


The band have grown an organic fanbase via online videos and so on, which is unusual in Japan. They released their debut album, Tomodachi o Koroshite Made (友だちを殺してまで, lit. "To Kill a Friend"), on 10 March 2010 on the indie label Perfect Music, which is run by their management company of the same name.

They later gained a deal with major label Warner Music Japan, with the album Tsumanne (つまんね, lit. "Boring") following on that label on 22 December 2010. On the same day, they also released Minna Shine (みんな死ね, lit. "Everyone Die") on Perfect Music.

On 31 August 2011, they released their fourth studio album, 8 Gatsu 32 Nichi e (8月32日へ, lit. "to August 32nd").[2]

The fictional movie Shinsei Kamattechan: Rock ‘n’ Roll wa Nariyamanai (劇場版・神聖かまってちゃん/ロックンロールは鳴り止まないっ) revolving around the band itself was released by Spotted Productions in Japan on 2 April 2011.[3] The English language title of the movie is Ringing in Their Ears.[4]

Their music is a strange blend of pop melodies and piano with dark lyrics and punk sensibilities. Most of their songs are digitally altered by frontman Noko, who also uses heavy delay and pitchshifting effects on his vocals.

Media attention[edit]

Shinsei Kamattechan have received a lot of media attention in Japan, although Noko rarely does interviews.

They have also attracted attention from English-language media. They were interviewed (without Noko) in a video on the website of British magazine NME at Summer Sonic 2010,[5] and by The Japan Times newspaper,[6] and their debut album, Tomodachi o Koroshite Made, was reviewed by Metropolis magazine.[7] They have also been mentioned in various blogs.[8][9]


The band are well known for broadcasting their activity on live-steaming video sites such as stickam, PeerCast, and Japanese popular video sharing website Nico Nico Douga. The member of the band, Noko is particularly notorious for his eccentric broadcasting methods.
