Yes, friends, loud/altdol supergroup NATASHA will be coming back for this year’s Tokyo Idol Festival, and with a fresh single to boot:
今年もNATASHAが始動！8月5日（土）「TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2017」への出演が決定しました。RINNEこと吉田凜音はソロ活動に専念するために脱退となりますが、4名でパワフルなパフォーマンスをお届けします！新曲も発表しますのでお楽しみに！ pic.twitter.com/eoCm6LFxN9

Also minus Rinne (whose new MV I’d share, but it’s region-blocked), which is fine; she was mostly color even last year. The remaining four are a great collection of big idol voices and, well, Chitti, who sort of abandoned her wheelhouse for “Justice in the Sky” to get a little more sultry, ultimately being somewhat overshadowed by a lot of bellowing by her groupmates.
If you’re new to this whole thing, this is what NATASHA did in their first iteration:
More of the same this year? Probably! I still have a bounty out on that debut single, and I’ll happily double the price if the new one can come along, too.
Sayonara to you, Rinne; I’m glad that you made friends with people.
