In this week’s Shuukan Idol, we have a variety of MVs from Yukueshirezu Tsurezure, avandoned, lyrical school, and more. Add in a ton of BABYMETAL news, a best of album from Perfume and you’ll have our 7 highlights of the week!
Atsuko is one of those members in BiSH who rarely get the spotlight that AiNA or AYUNi D do, but that’s about to change. In a surprise twist, we got a solo debut MV packed full of muscular men, BiSH members as back dancers, and a lot of scenes full of everyone partying. It’s a must see! Mostly because the song is incredibly catchy.
Tsurezure have just released their latest MV and it’s an interesting one. In it, we get to see Tsurezure sing to a calm song before a tragic story starts unfolding before our eyes. It might be a bit too intense for some, but somehow the girls make the song come to life.
BABYMETAL have unleashed a wave of announcements this week. In a nutshell we got a new album announcement, a new digital single, a new Japanese tour, a new European tour, and 3 supporting dancers one of which is former Momusu member Sayashi Riho. Needless to say, this is an intense week for BABYMETAL fans!
ANGERME fans are recovering from the loss of Wada Ayaka, but it seems like the graduations are not done yet. In the latest departure, we got the news that Katsuta Rina would be leaving the group to pursue her career in fashion. Best of luck Rina!
avandoned have been through a lot, but with a new lineup consisting of 5 new members it seems like they’re ready for anything. So, do we get the classic weird MVs? Not exactly. In fact, we got a pretty relaxing day out as the members sing to a chill tune. Recommended if you want something calm!
Perfume have a vast amount of songs that have been released. Well, it seems like they have hand-picked some of their best for fans who want to have it all in one place. Yes, this is their 3rd best of album, but this was released as a way of celebrating their 15th major debut so I’ll let it slide.
Nostalgia is pretty big nowadays, so why not combine that with idol music? lyrical school are taking inspiration from that by packing an MV to the brim with scenes from old movies. Back To The Future, Mission Impossible, and more are included, so give it a watch!
- LoVendoЯ is suspending all activities
- Fairies dance in a parking garage for their Change My Life MV
- Yurumerumo! attack with some sweet ska beats in the MV for WOW WOW WAR ~Suka Chanpon Seishou Sensen~
- Up Up Girls (Kakko Kari) sing from the rooftops at night in the MV for Heat Beat Island
This week we have Zettai Chokyuu Joshi! Playballs and their MV for their 9th single titled Ano Taiyou.
It’s hard to believe it but an idol group with a baseball theme is still going strong to this day and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, they’re even releasing an all new single where they dance in inches of water to an energetic punk/ska song.
Sounds dangerous? No need to worry, they’re professionals.
It’s a unique MV that works well to show off the many scenes that take place in a school. The main scene has them dancing in ankle-deep water in a school pool while a band plays some punk/ska in the background. But, there’s a bit of variety as members sing from the windows, playfully get wet, and other idol fun.
Surprisingly, the members manage to not fall in the not-that-full pool as they dance energetically to the fast-paced song. It’s a delightful treat for those who like energetic idol music, especially because it starts off slow and builds up from there.
Basically, it’s an incredible release and one that everyone must check out!

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