Discovering and then losing Psybou Kanojo in the span of a week earlier this year was a little bit of a blow: I was momentarily fan-smitten with this solo idol crushing some of the most violent, this-is-what-the-word-means idolcore you’ll ever hear, and Utena Yuki’s sudden departure from the project was unpleasant.
She did ultimately hold a final farewell live a couple of weeks ago, and I was holding out hope for some live video from the event (a vain hope, as it turned out). But tweets like this, indicating that attendees would be able to access unreleased music, made me wonder if maybe that stuff would find its way online:

We haven’t heard the last of Yuki, though; as this promo tweet for a, uh, very dark and metal show in two weeks indicates, she’s involved in a new project called Fate:

To get more Yuki, that’s great (I mean, that whole billing looks great). And given that all of Psybou Kanojo’s Internet presence is still alive, I think it stands to reason that somebody else may come along and pick up that mantle.
