Shuukan Idol – Timelines Edition (October 15 – 22)


In this week’s Shuukan Idol, we have a rather calm week with a handful of MVs from BILLIE IDLE, QUEENS, BABYMETAL, and other groups that don’t have only capitalized letters in their names. Check that out and more in our 7 highlights of the week!


Note: Slight delay posting this one, sorry about that

> BILLIE IDLE Walk And Greet Everyone In The MV For Everydays

BILLIE IDLE have a unique way of doing their releases and their latest MV shows it off perfectly. The group walks down a path, meets unique people, and to the beat of a harmonica we see them march towards a camera. It’s simple, unique, and well worth a look.

> QUEENS Strut Their Stuff In The MV For FLAGSHIP

QUEENS are one of those groups that deserve more recognition. Yes, their vocals are pretty weak but they have a fun dancing rock sound that is needed in the idol world. Well, earlier this week we got an MV for their latest single and the result is a fun MV that’s sure to get you dancing!

> BABYMETAL Get Artistic In The MV For Starlight, Announce YUIMETAL Departure

BABYMETAL have surged in popularity in the past years and as such have gotten to a point where they don’t have to release music as often. But, that’s about to change with the release of a new song. The only bad side of this news is that we are losing YUIMETAL, who has been away for almost a year. Best of luck YUIMETAL and enjoy the artistic MV in the post above!

> Nogizaka46 Show Nishino Nanase As An Artist And Idol In The MV For Kaerimichi wa Toumawari Shitakunaru

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you hadn’t taken an important decision in your life? For some, this could drastically change the course of their life and that’s exactly what we get to see in the latest Nogizaka46 MV with Nishino Nanase. It’s an interesting MV and one that is sure to show off a side of Nanase that many might not know.

> Shingeki Walk The Streets In The Enjoyable MV For Hakkyouteki Hassan Anken = Dasei

Sometimes while walking the streets you meet up with friends. If you’re Shingeki, that happens throughout the course of an MV where a wide variety of scenes happen. From playing with a lamb doll to simply singing to the camera, there’s something here to enjoy for everyone.

> Good Tears Dance In A Junkyard For Their Hee, Sou? MV

Nothing says idol like a group of girls dancing in the middle of a junkyard. The piles of trash that adorn the scene make for the perfect scenery for them to sing along to a playful song while doing some belly dancing here and there. It’s a weird MV but it’s worth a look!

> Michishige Sayumi Walks The Streets Of Tokyo In The MV For Loneliness Tokyo

Sayu is and will always be among the most interesting members of Momusu and thankfully the queen made a comeback recently. Her latest move is throwing her into the world of fashion by singing a song packed with electronic beats and a lot of wardrobe changes. Sayu still has it and her latest song is certainly a gem to enjoy.


This week we have Luce Twinkle Wink have released the MV for their 5th single titled Symphony. Out October 24th, the single will be released in 4 versions.

You know what I’m in the mood for? Some overly sweet idol music that fits an anime. That’s a very specific thing to want, but thankfully Luce Twinkle Wink have exactly what we need with their latest single that’s actually used as a theme song for an anime.

As they dance in a cat cafe, they make cat poses and do many adorable dance moves as they sing along to the beat of one of the sweetest songs ever made. It’s a simple release but one that is made even better because of the adorable vocals that they have.

It’s one of those MVs that you enjoy while gearing up for a session of anime watching so make sure to check out the MV just before you do that!
