It’s a Thursday Hurtsday Family Reunion!

You know what’s really satisfying about having put together a few thousand posts about a few hundred idols? It feels like there’s always something to talk about, even something new. I started dedicating little content spots over the course of the week to regulate that a bit. Thursday Hurtsday, though, can be a little difficult to meet up with, to the point that I sometimes have to stretch the concept to make it work.

Fortunately, this week has a bunch of really loud stuff!

The other night, the A-minor family (well, most of it, the part of the family under Daichi) did a bill all together, and one familiarly helpful YouTuber captured and uploaded the entire blessed thing: Continue reading

2! 2 2& PVs! Ha Ha Ha!

If you don’t like Sesame Street, you can eat one

Hey team! It’s been a mess of a morning, but I didn’t want to let it get away without a proper Thursday Hurtsday entry; and, thanks to a friend, I’m even changing up my original plans.

One of last year’s toughest graduations was Saki from Guso Drop. It was all a positive career move over all, and has so far led to some fairly wild stuff from the new blood among the Heaviest Idol in the World, plus good developments for Saki in her solo guise as 2&.


TY Pukovnik Krv!

Fittingly, it’s two videos in one!

Yesterday Was 2& Day; How’s Saki Doing, Anyway?

Yes, folks, 2/2 is Twin Tails Day in Japan, and you probably saw idols great and small rocking their double ponytails and doing their own version of kawaii as idol-hard as possible.

But 2/2 is also notable for having two 2s. Almost as if … double … and … ?

Yep, it’s 2& Day!

Much more interesting, if you ask me. Continue reading

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.

Seismic: Saki Is Leaving Guso Drop

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.

But not all of the news is bad, I guess. Continue reading

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.
