In this week’s Shuukan Idol we have a handful of MVs from groups such as Tsubaki Factory, Tokyo Girls’ Style, Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da, and more. It’s a packed group of releases, so make sure to enjoy our 7 highlights of the week below!
Well, this is a treat. Remember Tokyo Girls’ Style and their non-idol approach to Jpop? It seems like they’re taking a step towards sounding a bit more idol-esque with their latest single. It’s a delightful mix of dancing, magical girl transformations, and a rather upbeat song. Well worth a watch!
Vampires are in this year, so Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da are donning vampire fangs as they sing along to a heavy song. It’s a pretty awesome release, with a dark tone that is sure to tickle your idolcore loving heart. It’s all over the place, but hey, that’s what happens in a Zenkimi MV. Check it out above!
sora tob sakana have a treat for everyone today. OK, imagine a giant whale floating in the sky, an alien spaceship, and more dreamy scenes playing while they sing to the tune of a song packed full of calm and catchy beats. It’s a unique MV and one that is sure to have you questioning your existence. Fun!
DESURABBITS have been all over the place. They disappeared for a year and have come back with what I can only call a masterpiece. It’s packed to the brim with metal beats, heavy guitars, and pop vocals. This is a welcome return and hopefully a sign that we’ll get more music soon. Probably not, but I can dream.
GIRLFRIEND are a pretty fun group. They have a successful Youtube channel where they cover songs and so far they have released a variety of singles that are top notch girl band goodness. Well, their latest release is a treat, with a variety of fun and colorful scenes that are sure to confuse and delight you.
BILLIE IDLE is so 2018. In true WACK fashion we get a pretty interesting mix of members thrown into a special unit to cover the song. Of course, it’s another excuse to have Ayuni D. and AiNA singing but as a big Ayuni fan I’m totally into it. It’s worth a watch if you’re into the original song!
Tsubaki Factory are quickly rising to be one of the most promising H!P groups, and their latest single is a pretty good step in the right direction. It’s a standard MV for the most part, but that song. Oh boy, that song is a good one. Imagine Morning Musume levels of ballad and you have yourself a release that you’ll love.

This week we have Fuwa Fuwa and their MV for Viva!! Lucky 4.
Normally I would make a full dedicated post to a release from Fuwa Fuwa. But, when an MV is around a minute long it makes sense to save it for a Sunday Encore instead.
Well, here we are.
It’s pretty short, but in it we get to see a variety of shots showing off the members as they look magnificent. I mean, take a look at that thumbnail below, that’s pure classy right there. There are other outfits added in the MV, with Fuwa Fuwa wearing some frilly dresses in the dance shots.
A fancy MV deserves a fancy song and in a way we do get that. There are some electronic beats thrown in there, but the bulk of the song has a ballad feel to it. It’s a pretty interesting song, since at times it has a funky sound but in a way it works.
Overall, it’s a fancy package that fans of the group are sure to love. Not into Fuwa Fuwa? Well, this song might not convert you but it’s still a decent song to enjoy if you have a minute to spare.
I mean, it’s only a minute so hey, why not?
