Kobushi Factory are fast approaching the release date for their latest ninja themed single and thankfully the MVs for both tracks have been revealed. Their both unique and feature a nice contrast, so make sure to check them out!

Fight! Up Up Girls announce pro-wrestler audition for some reason

What do you do when you just got 5 new members in your group and have 2 graduating? You announce a new member audition of course. This one is unique though since they’re looking for a wrestling idol. It’s an interesting requirement, but one that fans are sure to keep an eye on.

Musubizm go full pink with their newly announced single Kimi ni Yume CHU♡XX

Those who follow this site are aware of how much I loved Musubizm’s first two singles. Thankfully we are getting even more soon in the form of their 3rd single which not only has an adorable title but also adorable covers. Check out the overwhelmingly pink release above!

Light up your penlights! DEADLIFT LOLITA pin our emotions in the ring with their MV for Kimiterasu Sairiumu

LADYBEARD has been incredibly active on the music scene lately with his new project DEADLIFT LOLITA, and their latest MV is a gem. Packed full of penlights, kawaii growls, and a ton of muscles, this release is a must see for fans!

Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da are going all out! Announce new album and re-recorded  past albums

Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da have been on a roll lately. They’ve been performing, releasing singles, and performing some more. Now it’s time to release even more new music with their 3rd album packed with 9 new songs. That’s not enough? Well they’re also re-releasing their first 2 albums with new vocals.

E-girls are changing up everything, announce lineup changes, Dream disbandment, and more

E-girls have long been one of those groups that has dominated the J-pop scene. Unfortunately, it seems like big changes are coming to this group with the most notable being that 8 members will be leaving the lineup. Full details are available above, so make sure to check it out!

Notable mentions:


This week we have a group that has been getting my attention lately and has been slowly dominating the idol scene: CY8ER.

With a packed lineup of colorful members who promise to bring fans a world of kawaii, it seems like this unique idol group has it all. But, their latest video is not their latest single Kakushemo. Instead it’s a cover of the song Cutie Honey for an Idol Matsuri contest entry.

It’s fairly simple since it’s only one setting, but the modern take on the song is well done by all of the members. This is also the 1st performance that many will get to see of the new lineup, so make sure to check it out below since it’s adorable:

Cutie Honey

Voting will apparently be done by a panel of judges, but throwing the video a like is a nice nod to the group. Make sure to check out the video and while you’re at it, why not check out their other releases:


That’s it for this week, make sure to stay tuned for the next one!
