100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 62: Foreboding

The infamous Codomomental pending announcement tweet:

So tomorrow morning, something is coming from Tsurezure. And exclusively them, for what it’s worth; this isn’t one of those family affair stages or anything.

I realize that the tweet is completely disconnected, but I just love thinking that this is how excited Komachi can get about things:

Or maybe she’s just tired from tracking down Co-cubed, who notably tweeted about tomorrow’s announcement and the Shibuya eggman show with plenty of emojis but without a single penguin emoji:

Has a cure been discovered?!

For once, Tsuyame was oddly quiet, but Shidare felt like she had something to celebrate:

How many of you goofballs are in that photo?

What a gem of a person.

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 60: Narrative

Well then.

Tsuyame is comparing a track to “Shinjuku Cinema Connection,” a song that I don’t love, but I do like them getting back to that dreamier state of being a little bit:

I can’t say one way or another, but from recording to here?

I think they had a good day. Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 17: Manifest

The Canadian adventures of Yukueshirezutsurezure Core Hate (I kind of love that) continue apace, though not for much longer, as their free headliner is now just a week away, and you’ll be able to see the members looking ahead to business yet to be done back home.

However, I want to continue to reflect on the outrageous honor of getting to interview NSLE in Toronto, and the tremendous job that Ariane did in chatting up the members and management, and in apparently becoming best friends in the process. I figured that it would be a popular item, given how well our overall community regards the Codomomental acts in general, but I didn’t expect that friggin’ waves of traffic that hit have been hitting the interview. It’s pretty great! And then I found a primary reason why:

Thanks for noticing, senpai! For what it’s worth, though, Ariane wasn’t the only one to catch up with Tsurezure; Kawaii Podcast met up with them in this cafe: Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 12: Tourists

I didn’t expect a whole lot of traveloguing from the Not Secured, Loose Ends members while they were on this fine megacontinent, but I was hopeful for some, just so we’d have some idea of how it is that they’re spending their time.

Niagara Falls is apparently how they’re spending their time!

Letting Komachi near firearms: Bad idea or worst idea?

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 11: Arrival

The Idols Who Will Heretofore Be Known as Not Secured, Loose Ends until They Return to Japan have arrived in Canada! Other idols who’ve done these kinds of field trips usually flood Twitter with photos from airports and planes and restaurants and whatnot, but Tsurezure’s more constrained. So far.

Tsuyame seems to be having a good time:

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 8: Instructional

Welcome back to 100 Days of Tsurezure, the definitely-already-a-slog daily consideration of the reality of idol and idol life and what it means to be Not Secured, Loose Ends! We’re one full week in the can … and Yukueshirezutsurezure’s first Canadian performance is mere days away.

Speaking of, Day 8 begins with something very important straight from tour organizer Next Music from Tokyo:

Yes, “prepare” means more than “get hype.” Click on that for some important how-to. As for the regular order of business? Continue reading

Impossible Dream Realized: Somebody’s Coming West

Yeah, shut up, I know it’s not the first time it’s ever happened and no, I had nothing to do with it, but I’ll be gosh darned if I don’t feel like the whole point of this stupid project has been validated by complete strangers.

Hey guys, remember when Maison Book Girl was in Canada last autumn? Did a few shows? Darn near got awarded Performance of the Year for it? Next Music from Tokyo put that together. It was tour #9. Tour #10 is in May. Feast your tired-of-reading-stupid-Maniac eyes on this:
