100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 100: Finale

Before I begin, I want to say that I’ll be so mad if even one member decided to take a day off from Twitter. WE CAME SO FAR TOGETHER!

Day 100! I can’t believe we made it this far. Well, I can, because I did it. Only missed a couple over that whole time and I think I still managed to make up for all of them. Aw … I’m gonna miss this weird series.


Shidare says, see you in Hiroshima!

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 99: Penultimate

The promo tour for “Loud Asymmetry” keeps rolling, and can I just say that there’s a very real, natural, honest joie de vivre in how the NSLE members look in their photos? Like they’re having a blast:

Maybe they haven’t been told that there won’t be any royalty payments yet! Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 98: Unveiled

NSLE hit up Tower Records in Sendai, and are clearly loving everything right now:

It must have eaten up just about all of Tsuyame’s creativity, though, because she keeps doing variations on the same selfie anymore: Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 97: Image

I never really appreciated idol photography, the selfies and outifts and promo shots and the like, until the 100 Days, and I think part of why I learned to see its power is because the NSLE members do it so well. They also reveal a lot about themselves.

Like, for instance, that Cococo is actually at least two people:

And that Tsuyame doesn’t have the ability to blink:

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 96: Senpai

The press tour and attendant attention continues for the fine women of Yukueshirezutsurezure, and look at some of the names they’re being associated with:

Somebody asked senpai to be noticed for Christmas! Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 95: Media

The release of “Loud Asymmetry” saw a little bump in music media attention for the fine women of Not Secured, Loose Ends. For instance, a new interview with Power Push at Natalie.mu:

And the MV on Space Shower TV:

Climbing that ladder! Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 94: Better Late

Man, sometimes you think you’re just going to leave work at a normal time, and sometimes you accept A Drink Or Two and don’t even get back until today is almost tomorrow.

And what a shame! The latest edition of Codomoradio was the most packed yet:

And always with milcboy and Mashiro …

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 93: Dawnstar

This time, I waited for it to be late just to commemorate the fact that “Loud Asymmetry” is now available in stores; if you follow Tsurezure closely enough to have notifications set up for when they tweet, you are immensely conscious of that fact:

Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 92: Imaginarium

Things weren’t looking too interesting on the NSLE front until I finally found Komachi being Komachi:

I believe that it’s meant to say “Kansai,” but I really want to believe that it says “Kansas,” because why would it, why would Komachi wear it (except “Komachi”), and what would it mean if she did? Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 91: Stunted

Shidare is sleepy:

Tsuyame is apparently perpetually 8 years old:

Yes, those are her bedroom curtains. Maybe the greatest issue of all, though, is that her sleepover buddy Shidare isn’t there to really drive home the fact that two growling musical hell demons like to cuddle together for company beneath starry curtains like most people stopped doing around the time of fifth grade. I bet she has those glow-in-the-dark stars-and-planets stickers on her walls, too. Continue reading
