> GANG PARADE take to the streets of Taiwan in the MV for Raira

Watanabe is lost, so what does GANG PARADE do to find him? They go all the way to Taiwan and release what can easily be described as one of the most interesting GANG PARADE tracks there is. Get your searching boots on and tag alone with GANG PARADE for this fun release!

Are you ready to get confused by another Maison book girl MV? Well, I have great news for you, they’re releasing a new single and have released the MV for one of the tracks. It’s playful, artistic, and oh so delightfully confusing.

> lyrical school rap on stage in the MV for High5

lyrical school have your need for chill beats covered with the release of High5. Do we get a fancy MV? Nope, but we do get a simple live performance that will help you appreciate the song. Add in some relaxing beats and some fast paced vocals to complete this epic release.

> Momoiro Clover Z bring the carnival in the MV for Clover to Diamond

Momoiro Clover Z are celebrating their 10th anniversary in style. We kick off with a slow ballad and some calm visuals, but we soon get to enjoy what can only be  described as the most epic party in idol history. Get your party gear on and enjoy this MV above!

> Perfume announce their 7th album

Perfume have been releasing a variety of fun singles lately. But, what if you want their latest releases in one place? You’re in luck because they’ve just confirmed that they’ll be releasing their 7th album.

> Juice=Juice announce their 2nd album

It has been around 3 years since we last saw a Juice=Juice album. Thankfully the Hello! Project gods have decided that it is time for a new release. We only have a few details but it’s safe to say that the hype for a new album is high!

Notable mentions:


This week we have Avandoned and the MV for their revival single titled AFTER SCHOOL. Out since May 23rd, the single will be released in one edition.

Have you ever had one of those moments in life where everything seemed too normal? Well, let’s change that. Enter Avandoned who are making their return to the idol scene after a brief break with what can only be described as the single best MV I’ve ever seen.

First off, the song. It’s a bit on the retro side with a playful tone to it, making for a rather enjoyable release. Yes, it’s a bit simple at times but the song does hold up and gives us a glimpse into what we can expect from this duo in the future.

Visually, there are no words to describe the video. If you’re familiar with their previous releases then you have a slight idea of what to expect: a lot of color and interesting visual effects. Make sure to check out the MV below!
