DEEP GIRL Is Falling Apart; Now Non Says Her Farewell

First Mashiro (and her quick turnaround), now everybody’s favorite pit-firing-up Showroom-experimenting multi-talented idol, Non:

Her quick little post here says little else, just “I’m leaving now, goodbye.” This statement that she added to Twitter is no doubt more explanatory: Continue reading


Idols Got Talent: DEEP GIRL’s Non Is Way More Than Mosh Pits

Man, I got a kick out of this.

So (the remaining members of) DEEP GIRL participated in an acoustic performance thing over the weekend. If you’re wondering what “I kill” sounds like unplugged, you’ll have to continue to wait; but if you wanted to hear Non and her deceptively soulful voice get a little jazzy, you’ve come to the right place:

I know somebody out there has a link to Non’s personal *somethingOrother* account where she has recordings of herself singing all good and awesome — could you share in the comments?

Update: It’s been shared!

Mashiro Is out of DEEP GIRL

This wasn’t something I wanted to see:

It’s been a year since “I kill,” but the gods don’t like us enough to have sudden out-of-the-blue messages about important announcements be about new releases or tours or anything. And so it was:

Mashiro has withdrawn immediately; DEEP GIRL will keep doing what they do. Continue reading


DEEP GIRL, Karaoke-style, Translated for You

I had shared this on Facebook the other day (much to poor Will’s dismay!), but the completed version is just too delicious to pass on sharing more widely here.

Say, friends, have you ever listed to “I kill” and really wanted to be able to sing along? And not just the hook in the chorus, but the Non-screaming-a-hole-in-bullying’s-stupid-face-forever breakdown parts at the end, too? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

By way of the DEEP GIRL group on Facebook (and with the author’s permission even!), I bring you one karaoke-friendly translation of “I kill” for you to take into the booth and scare the ever-living bejeezus out of your friends/date: Continue reading


Monday Match Game: Mashiro vs. Mashiro

I like to keep things spicy around here. No, there’s no shortage of new idols to learn about or new videos to look at, and goodness knows I’m making a hell of an ask of you guys with the whole Best of 2016 business, but it’s always nice to introduce some new stuff.

And this is new! I’m calling it the Monday Match Game, and it’ll run until I or we run out of ideas, or pure, unadulterated malaise strikes it down simile awkward metaphor!

The thing is, idols are interesting. But they’re even more interesting when they’re pitted against one another in metaphorical mortal combat based entirely on completely tenuous associations between them!

As such, our first entry in the first Monday Match Game pits the Queen of Yami-Kawaii against the Most Metal Cheerz Model in the World. Yes, friends, in a fight to the death, who emerges victorious — Mashiro or Mashiro? Continue reading


DEEP GIRL’s Latest Live Videos Are Sweet, Out of Control

They’ve been dropping these pro edits of live footage (with studio audio); now we have ourselves DEEP GIRL back on Jimmy Eat World and, uh, Hoobastank:

I Can’t Believe This ‘I kill’ Live Video Is Real

DEEP GIRL, you’re on some kind of bender. First your eponymous song, now this.

I am super disappointed that Non doesn’t do that big-ass scream live

DEEP GIRL Just Published a Live Video for Their Title Track

Hot off of hosting DEVIL GUN’s debut (and like everybody else in the same waters), DEEP GIRL went ahead and figured they’d release an updated official video for “DEEP GIRL,” presumably to have a new canon (NOT KANON DAMMIT!) version that takes the actual membership into account.

Admit it, you kind of wish you could be there for it

DEEPGIRL’s Mashilo Needs a Break

If you follow DEEP GIRL, you may be aware that Mashilo has been dealing with a run of tough physical issues lately; while getting over a bout of conjunctivitis, she also revealed that she has nodules on her vocal chords. This is unsurprisingly an issue for a person who sings, and now that issue is putting her on the shelf:

DEEP GIRL Finally Gives Us that ‘STEREO’ Video

Almost lost in all of the hubbub yesterday was this very pleasant release:


If you’ll remember, the existence of this video was teased well over a month ago, and then I was very happy to give DEEP GIRL crap about releasing a live pro-shot of their “Misery Business” cover; at least this is an original! ANOTHER GOSHDAMN COVER why. Showroom, you have so much money. Just buy a song ffs. Continue reading
