In this week’s Shuukan Idol, we say goodbye to one of the idol scene’s most influential groups: C-ute.
Today is their final live together as a group before they go their separate ways. Thank you C-ute for over a decade of amazing music that fans all over the world can enjoy!
That being said, this week we have a large variety of news including MVs from ANGERME and Fairies. We also get a few new singles announced, a preview for BiSH’s amazing mini album, and more in our 6 highlights of the week!
ANGERME are about to release a new single, and thankfully the first MV is out. Packed full of muted colors and a giant, floating CGI tear, the members manage to pack in a solid ballad with this release. If you’re a fan of slower songs this MV is highly recommended!
Fairies are masters of a mature tone, and thankfully they have just released a solid song that fans are sure to adore. Every scene is filled with movie related props that help give it a unique look that pairs well with the fast paced shift in scenes. Check out this release since it’s fairly catchy!
It’s BiSH. Seriously, why are you still reading this? Go check out the preview, it’s so good!
This might not be the most unique name for an idol song (that honor goes to BiSH’s VOMiT SONG) but the fact that the name for a song is just a bunch of circles is sure to be an interesting treat for fans. Full details for this release are available above!
With the tragic passing of Matsuni Rina (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku), many were hoping to see some kind of last release in order to have a memory of their favorite member. Thankfully, a special PB will be released that shows off her many modeling appearances. It’s a touching release and one that fans are sure to appreciate.
Country Girls have release a special transfer system that they will be implementing once Tsugunaga Momoko graduates. While at first glance it seemed like a unique idea, reading the reactions of the members leaves many … not happy. Full details are available above, so check it out and let us know what you think of this new system.

This week we have a new MV for Chu-Z titled Yubiwa no Yukue. Out June 21st, the single will be their 5th major release and will be released in 2 versions.
The MV is fairly unique since the music video doesn’t contain much music at all. It’s more of a 12 minute drama which showcases a love story of a couple who fight and the many memories they lived through.
If you only want the music, skip to 5:01, 7:48, and a few other sections in the video (there’s too many). Thankfully, the song is solid with a strong beat and a ballad sound, making it a powerful release for those who prefer to focus on the slower side of life.
Sure, it’s hard to enjoy the song with the drama in the way, but it’s a nice touch to get a bit (a lot) of story instead of just the typical dance and close-up shots. The video is blocked in some areas, so hopefully you’re able to check it out!
