The re-somethinged Bellring Girls Heart is taking the stage for the first time right now. Get in on it!
Does the sound work yet?
Happy Friday, gang! Do you remember when Takahashi Natsumi graduated from DISDOL? And remember Phillter’s awesome story about being at her final? We knew that she was going some kind of solo — given what her Twitter feed usually looks like, I assumed “mostly gravure” was the plan, but she’s making music! Acceptably!
Well, yes, it is the new face of Not-Bellheart; more appropriately, it’s the face of There There Theres:

Amazing. Their debut one-man is on the 18th; they’re apparently going to unveil more of the image and members slowly between now and then. I think. I never know what to do when it comes to Bellheart-related stuff because they clearly enjoy screwing with us. Continue reading
Welcome back, Artists Formerly Known as Parallel and Also Parallel Japan! We had reason to worry that you were going to be done, but you head-faked us all and re-launched as PLICPROCK and … well, as it’s being talked about in the Idolmetal group, here’s their re-debut show:

It took more time to unravel the sudden withdrawal of DEEP GIRL’s (now) former leader (and original Monday Match Game loser) than it did for her to suddenly reveal the real reason for her immediate not-even-a-graduation — because she was joining Rinahamu’s post-BPM15Q project, CY8ER.
Making her bare-faced debut:

I was Twitter-diving the other day, kind of killing time between things at work, when one interesting new thing led to another and then I was on YouTube and it was just flash after flash of previously unfamiliar music from idols I’d never heard of and then. Then.
I wasn’t so much blown away as I was subsumed and desperately wanted to know more.
That’s not even idol; it’s like post-idol
Not even a week ago, Bellring Girls Heart held their final appearance (as Bellring Girls Heart). Tears were shed. Two long-time members, Ayano and Mizuho, were graduating, Ayano to pursue a solo career (which should be interesting) and Mizuho to retire from entertainment; an idol and Bellheart member since she was 15, she felt it was time to move on with her life’s work. It was a bittersweet goodbye.
And then, in the most punk rock thing possible, Mizuho showed up yesterday as a member of wrestling/rock/idol/band thing Natsu no Mamono:

In this episode of Bury the Lede, we’ll discuss the least of the implications mentioned in this tweet from the soon-to-kind-of-not-be Bellring Girls Heart:

Yes, Kanra will– Why would you do that? DO NOT GIVE THAT PERSON POWER! I guess we’re about to find out just how much stomach people have for watching bugs get tortured on stage. Good golly. More details, and statements from Kanra and Tanaka, in this Natalie.mu piece.
Oh, right, the lede: Continue reading
