Shuukan Idol – bite the Juice Edition

PassCode Yuna

In this week’s Shuukan Idol, we get a packed post with MVs from groups such as Juice=Juice, PassCode, Itano Tomomi, Guso Drop, UP UP GIRLS, and more.

Of course, there was a lot of news this week so our notable mentions are packed full of info including a few PB previews and some surprising graduations/hiatus announcements.

All that and more in our top 6 highlights of the week!


Juice=Juice explore the hills in the MV for Feel! Kanjiru yo

The hills are alive, with the sound of Juice=Juice! We get to see some stunning scenes of the members as they sing together out in nature for this delightful ballad. It’s a solid release and the perfect way to complete this single. Make sure to watch it above!

PassCode go casual for the exciting bite the bullet MV

PassCode are among my favorite groups on the alternative idol scene, and their latest single is sure to please fans of the group. As the members walk the streets of Tokyo, we get to hear all of them sing, including Yuna with her talented screams. Bite the bullet and enjoy the MV above!

The Idol Formerly Known As LADYBABY really, really like each other in the MV for LADY BABY BLUE

Kaneko Rie and Kuromiya Rei are both close. Very close. Their latest MV shows off some adorable scenes of the two spending time together and being casual to the beat of a ballad. See the MV above and grab a copy of their latest single if you haven’t already!

Itano Tomomi adorably fails in the MV for #Ii ne

Itano Tomomi is an amazing singer, and her latest MV has finally been released showing off a new twist. Instead of the more mature songs we’ve heard, she shows off a more upbeat sound that is sure to delight many. It’s basically an adorable video full of fails, so it’s worth a look.

Guso Drop get covered in weird substances for the powerful Painfully violent MV

Guso Drop have long been a staple in the alternative idol scene, and a group I’ve been meaning to check out. Thankfully, they have released a new MV and it’s a treat. Punk styled vocals, heavy instrumental, and a lot of blood and … white substances … being thrown at them. It’s a delightful treat for fans of the heavy side!

UP UP GIRLS are in much better shape than me, release MV for FOREVER YOUNG

Do you want to see a group of idols run for far too long as they sing an upbeat ballad? Do you wish to see another group of girls run slightly behind them? You’re in luck! UP UP GIRLS have released the second song of their latest single and it’s a treat. Check it out above!

Notable mentions:


This week we have Fuwa Fuwa with their 4th single titled Cheerleader.

Out June 14th, the MV is packed with color and an incredibly large of girls singing to the beat of a E-girl-esque sound (basically a typical avex idol group).

While it might be fairly simple, it has a catchy sound which shows off the vocal abilities of all of the members. All of this happens as they play a round of dodge ball and perform a few cheerleader inspired dance moves.

Simple and sweet, so make sure to check it out below!

Fuwa Fuwa

Unfortunately, the single doesn’t appear to be available on international stores just yet (and it’s avex so it’s probably banned anyways). But, if you get a chance to see it in stores make sure to grab a copy!

That’s it for this week, we’ll see you in the next one!
