That and more in our 7 highlights of the week!


> Yanakoto Sotto Mute woke me up with their AWAKE MV

After dominating the desert with their MV for Any, it seems like Yanakoto are back with a calmer track from their latest EP. This time they dance on stage as lights shine on them as they sing a fairly soothing track for fans to enjoy. There’s also a random cat, so make sure to watch out for that.

> Shinozaki Ai is releasin’ her 3rd single Floatin’ Like The Moon

Shinozaki Ai is well known in the gravure scene, but it seems like her singing career is pickin’ up. This time we’re gettin’ a new single with an interestin’ title that is sure to be a hit with fans.

> Candye♡Syrup get sweetly hardcore in the MV for Candye♡ Syrup

When we got the news that this colorful idol group would be forming, many fans were instantly intrigued. Alternative idols are fairly common, but it’s rare to see one combine colorful fashion with idols and hardcore music. Thankfully, the song is a delight, combining some harsh screams with some anime inspired vocals.

> every♥ing say one last goodbye in their final MV for Egao de Thank You!

every♥ing are one of those groups I wish I had discovered earlier since their music is incredibly upbeat and happy. Unfortunately, all good things have to come to an end and they have released their final MV. Make sure to check it out, and best of luck to both of the members!

> Pyxis have a fight for decoration in the MV for their 2nd single titled Daisuki x Janai

Pyxis is a fairly newish idol group that are releasing a new colorful release for fans to enjoy. As the incredibly upbeat music plays, the members begin to face off in an epic battle that will decide the fate of which color to use at a party. It’s adorable and way too fast, perfect for those who like upbeat music.

> NEVE SLIDE DOWN punch a guy in their Leaving MV

NEVE SLIDE DOWN are best described as PassCode without the screaming, but their latest release is giving fans a taste of their unique style of music. This MV is packed with party scenes as the members sing and dance together. Then they punch the cameraman because that’s what you do at parties.

> AKB48 release almost all the MVs for their 49th single titled #Sukinanda

AKB48 are gearing up for another amazing release and this time we’re getting the releases for most of the coupling tracks. They’re fairly interesting and well worth a look so make sure to check them out above!

Notable mentions:


This week we have Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku with their track titled YELL.

As the members run around a campus we get to hear a fairly upbeat ballad sound. It’s a fairly simple MV but they dance on the roof, they dance at the entrance, and they dance all over the place as the scenes move around the school.

It’s simple but the members all get really into the music which is great since their dance moves are packed full of energy. Make sure to check it out below since it’s a delight!
