yashidare tsurezure

In this week’s Shuukan Idol, we get a solo debut announcement as well as several MVs from ROCK A JAPONICA, Yumemiru Adolescence, Yufu Terashima, SCANDAL, and Juice=Juice. There’s also a surprise disbandment and more in our 7 highlights of the week!


> NEVE SLIDE DOWN slide down into disbandment

It’s unfortunate to see when talented groups decide to part ways, and unfortunately it seems like NEVE SLIDE DOWN are the latest to do just that. Full details and comments from the members are available in the post above. Best of luck NEVE SLIDE DOWN members, may you continue punching cameramen wherever you go.

> ex-DEEP GIRL member Riico is going solo

Remember DEEP GIRL? Fans of alternative idols might remember this delightfully dark group and how they were unfortunately managed into obvlivion. Thankfully, it seems like one of the members, Riko, has risen from the ashes and is going for a solo career.

> ROCK A JAPONICA stand on all the things in their Watashi no Chizu MV

Ballads always sound better when you have a school setting, a group of idols, and a lot of desks to stand on. ROCK A JAPONICA’s latest release features just that with a song that is well worth a listen. I don’t recommend standing on a desk while listening to this song though.

> Yumemiru Adolescence play with time in the turtle-packed MV for 20xx

Yumemiru Adolescence are among the most talented groups on the scene right now and their latest single is evidence of that. Featuring a double a-side release with song from SCANDAL’s MAMI and a track packed full of EDM, it seems like fans are in for a treat. Make sure to check out their latest MV since it’s a must see!

> Yufu Terashima shows off her short hair style in the MV for Shiranai Dareka ni Dakaretemo Ii

Have you ever wondered what Yufu Terashima would look like with short hair? You’re in luck since her latest MV shows off a new mature look as the soft ballad plays. It’s calm, short, and sweet, so make sure to relax and enjoy the new mature Yufu.

> Team Syachihoko want you to know who they are in the MV for We are …

It’s hard to believe but Team Syachihoko are just about to celebrate their 5th anniversary. To celebrate, they’ve released a live MV of their song We are ...  which is part of their Best Of album. It contains 20 songs chosen by fans, a ton of extras to enjoy, and three different editions!

> Juice=Juice release release MVs MVs for for Fiesta! Fiesta! and and Ca va Ca va?

Juice=Juice are currently in their world tour, but even that is not stopping them from releasing more music for their fans to enjoy. This time we have Fiesta Fiesta! featuring some Spanish lines along with a passionate dance. For those who prefer something a bit slower there’s Ca va Ca va? with scenes of them in France that is a delight.

Notable mentions:


This week we continue the Devil ANTHEM. train with an official audio clip of their track titled OMONPAKARU.

If you miss the EDM heavy songs of Devil ANTHEM. you’re in luck since it seems like at least OMONPAKARU will have a slight electronic touch. It might not be as heavily electronic as their other releases, but the fun scenes of them performing help make the song memorable.

We’re not sure if we’ll be getting an MV for this release (we’ve only seen official audio), but so far it seems like this single is shaping up to be a must-have for fans of these horn-wearing idols!


Haven’t heard EMOTIONAL? You can check that out here!

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