Say, How’s Saki Doing in Life after Guso Drop?

When it was announced that Saki, the group’s original center, was graduating from Guso Drop at the end of last year, folks were understandably upset — for as much as Boss Rei is the spiritual heart of the group (and, you know, also the boss), Saki was its soul, a true singer who could bring the screams and shouts with the best of them. They even retired her color along with her.

It was also taken with a grain of salt; Saki’s departure from Guso Drop wasn’t an end for her, but a change, as she’d be shifting her career permanently to her other project, 2&. You can even look at her final live with Guso Drop as the end of an era for the group more than for her.

Anyway, now doing 2& full-time, Saki is able to keep doing what she loves, and we get to keep watching her do it. Continue reading

Guso Drop (and Fans) Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

You may have seen a funny story unfolding on Twitter last night:

Guso Drop (and 2&) was scheduled to perform at 11:00 a.m. as the opener-opener of this big ol’ idols-and-stuff event, but somebody involved in that process screwed up, and the fans weren’t being let into the performance area until the very last minute, and the stage wasn’t ready, and …

Fortunately, this is Guso Drop we’re talking about; they just improvised: Continue reading

Saki’s Graduation from Guso Drop Brought the Past and Future Together

Among all of the brutal graduations of 2016, the departure of Guso Drop’s Saki from the group she’d help make into the underground’s heavyweight champions was understandably a sad loss for fans (and poor Boss didn’t seem to be taking it well, either). The final live with the group’s long-time center was, of course, a very fun show, and it also brought out an old friend and the new guns.

The end of the year will be the end of Saki’s time in Guso Drop. The Heaviest Idol in the World is losing its center.

Have 30 Minutes of 2& to Brighten Your Morning

Guso Drop just wrapped up a little international tour in Taiwan (which I’d have covered more except I only found out about it as they were finishing it oops), and when Guso Drop does a set, so often too does 2&.

For the uninitiated, 2& is Gudro’s own little red center, Saki, performing solo as the still-going remnant of a project that actually pre-dates Guso Drop; originally a duo, she kept it going under the fun little slogan “Saki+You=2!”.

Pretty cute for a woman who probably likes to pinch children just to hear them cry.

I don’t give enough attention to 2&, arguably because it’s mostly Saki’s side project, but it is a big favorite for people into the scene that Guso Drop kind of leads, so mayhaps we can look to incorporate it more going forward. Whether it’s busking in the streets or doing a 30-minute stage set, 2&’s always a good time.

Oyasumi Hologram Releases Album and Video, Makes Maniac Make Decisions

I always feel badly for not giving enough attention to Oyasumi Hologram, who are as game-changing of idols as its gets but who, like some others that I personally like a whole lot, are really best fits on the Sister Site That Come On You’re Never Actually Going to Do It Shut Up You Jerk.

Here’s the MV to accompany the release of their album, 2.

Idols Got Talent: Saki Goes Busking

I feel like it’s been a minute since Guso Drop appeared on here, and I saw this rolling through Twitter this morning and thought it’d be fun to share.

Here’s Saki (Guso Drop and 2&) doing her thing out on the streets:

Look at that Twitter account or Saki’s for more.

Gudro’s Saki Confirms: She’s the Same Saki as in 2&

In a secret so poorly kept, so not-secret, so in fact out-in-the-open-why-would-you-ever-think-anything-else that its reveal approaches Dadaist levels of absurdity, Guso Drop‘s Saki came out on Twitter as the Saki from 2&. Continue reading

Is This the Beginning of Some Idolcore Unity? UPDATED

Couple of weeks late on this one, but as this post on the Guso Drop Facebook fan group points out, not only did GuDro not decide to disband following their match against Screaming Sixties, they’re actually sort of joining forces. Continue reading
