    Glad to year you survived your fist week! This is what happened to me at that point:

    Stopped listening to any other rock music.

    Started to notice Suzuka Nakamoto is on her way to become the best female rock vocalist of all time.


    BABYMETAL tee-shirts.

    Next up? Got all the blu-ray releases. (except the first one.. I heard it's not great, and the band is air-guitaring). Watch these 2-4 hours per day, every day, until people start questioning my sanity.

    Spend a ton of money to fly to the UK to see them do a short set (opening for RHCP)

    In two minds about this. On the one hand it's remeniscent of the beatles animated series and the monkees, which puts them in good company, and more exposure is good so they can do arenas potentially in the US. They put on great shows in smaller venues, but I fear lots of small gigs puts much on the 3 girls, and they are so good they deserve bigger billing.
    My cynical side though questions whether they are taken seriously by the likes of Warner, and are just trying to cash in. I have some comfort in that Kobametal is producing. I wonder if it's going to be in japanese with english subtitles or just in english. It's just I feel the rest of the world need to catch up to babymetal, and Japanese music in general, and not vice versa.. Lets just say I'd be more at ease if it were a Japanese animation company doing it, and warner were doing an english port for the US.
    I wish them the best of luck
