Here’s a nice way to kick off Friday — Yurimaru, only like the bubbliest little solo rock idol when she feels like it and also does lots of other stuff, has a DVD coming out at the end of the month.
Seeing these tweets happen yesterday gave me a good feeling; if you don’t like 2016 Homicidols.com Collaboration of the Year winner Screaming Sixties, I don’t know how to help you. They’re loud, they put on a great show, they usually only release tiny clips of their live shows (and on Twitter, no less) … basically, they’re a good thing. And this DVD looks like it’s going to be a good thing.

Man, this would be really exciting if I were in Shinjuku: BiSH is releasing the DVD of their Less than SEX tour final next week, and the whole thing is going to be narrowcast (but HUGE) on the big-ass Yunika Vision screen that we hear so much about:

For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with watching this-here trailer for the DVD, being gobsmacked, hating people who live in Tokyo and wishing that the whole thing were actually just “Hoshi ga” like we thought for a hot second when the video first started. Continue reading
You might want to splurge on that Niconico premium membership now:

Why’s that? Nbd, just Bellring Girls Heart streaming their B and Q concert DVDs before a live broadcast of the pre-hiatus Babel show. Just a few hours of the very best of BRGH! Nothing to get excited about at all! Continue reading
Bellring Girls Heart is going away. Well, kind of. Mostly. For a little while. And that sucks and is sad, especially after the year they’ve had. But now you can relive the whole thing with this series of live DVDs that are coming out in a pair of Thursdays.
Q is from the very beginning of the year:
We already knew that the “MISS UNLIMITED” extra special deluxe edition was going to contain a live DVD from the VIRTUAL tour final; now we know what that’s going to look like:

Let me just say how glad I am that JyuJyu is back in full swing and keeping me interested, because everything about this little bit of video is right up my alley.
It’s not a trailer, per se, but some footage of the JyuJyu members during their time in Taiwan, with the group’s trademark dark-as-hell music playing softly in the background. What a mood-setter! Reminds me of when I was 22 and would put on Slipknot when I’d have lady friends over.
Also? Drinking beer? DOUBLE-FISTING beer? You’re too much, JyuJyu.
Can you believe that it’s been two months since I last wrote a dedicated Hauptharmonie post? What the hell is wrong with me? It’s not like they aren’t doing anything — since dropping their (very good, if jazzy Britpop shoegazer disco idols are your thing) album, they’ve done TIF and a bunch of regular shows and then just had themselves a great set at JAM this past weekend:
The Peach Stage, for when you deserve roughly the third best!
Oh man, do you remember this? No? Like, maybe all of 20 people would look at the average post every day then, and half of them had “bot” in their names?
Anyway! BiSH Cannonball was a weird, barely understand day-long competition in which the six (Hug Me era) members formed into pairs and partnered with a member of the WACK staff and did this weird race/points competition, all while being filmed. It streamed live, and we were all
threatened promised that it would eventually be released onto DVD. This is just as good!

Summer may unofficially be over here in the United States, but it’s still a great time to get out, see friends, drink margaritas on a veranda while listening to Juan Gabriel tributes, things like that … OR it could be a great evening to spend inside, surrounded by people who might be trying to kill you, watching batshit movie after batshit movie and eventually getting to:
Adventures of Bellring Girls Heart across the 6D has been mentioned here before, and it’s the kind of thing that fans love and launch crowdfunding campaigns to have subtitled, and it appears that this piece of work — which I have been told probably isn’t authorized, but whatevs, “the Internet” and all that — is the culmination of that effort.
