As of yesterday’s Cure Fes, they’re the most intense quintet in idol:

Didn’t see five coming!

Cure Is Officially Down to Two Members

File this under The Most Random News Imaginable But Maniac Wanted an Excuse to Post Cure Again.

If you’re familiar with Osaka’s Cure, you know them as a powerful duo who really don’t look the part of shred-throated, darkness-powered metal idols, but there you go. If you’ve looked into them, though, you may have noticed that they have long listed a third member who, for almost all of 2016, has been on hiatus for health reasons.

Well, she’s officially out.

It’s Always Nice When Cure Uploads a Bunch of Video

I don’t even know how to frame this in a way that it doesn’t frame itself. The setting: Some little venue. The performers: Cure. The atmosphere: Hype. The music: Good. Kokeshichan: Terrifying.

Cure Uploaded Their Full Set, Bless Them

I had a version of this post all drafted before first the MV release this morning and then that “where were you when” news of some sort from a little while ago, and it’s funny to look back on this now, when it felt like possibly the best thing to be available in what has otherwise been a fairly dull week.

Anyway, the point that I was originally trying to make is that it’s good to be reminded that there are and always will be idols doing metal on little stages for their most stalwart of fans. Cure, for instance, is a-okay.

These videos are from the most recent Cure Fest, held on Sunday. That venue … honestly, every time I see one of these, or some of the really early Babymetal stuff, I want to drag some tr00 metalhead dipshit by their bad hair over to look. “See, asshat? Get a clue.”

I am a very kind person.


Who’s Down for like 90 Seconds of Cure?

And I’d been wondering what all they’ve been up to lately.

That’s a lot of oomph!

Their festival is coming up in a couple of weeks, too:

This has been our monthly check-in on Cure.


Score Me One of These

You lucky ducks in Japan, if you happen by Cure’s next show:

I’ll even pay for it!


This Cure Song Is Pure Hotness

Via Pure Idol Heart, sweet holy shit:

Also, this isn’t my first time listening to Cure, but I had absolutely no idea that totes adorbz Kokeshi-chan could belt like that. Good lord, child.


Ed: I had to clean this up. It was weird and not right.


A Cure for What Ails You

Finally a workable pun!

Hot from the Osaka underground comes Cure (web), who have of late been kind of buzzing through the idolverse:
