And after following that earlier bit of gothy metal idol stuff, it only makes sense to keep with the theme and enjoy this rather artistic live from JyuJyu:
Good morning my friends! Please tell me that you’re down with JyuJyu, the cursed idols and their gloomy, doomy, murder-spree presentation. If you aren’t, why, what’s that matter; if you are, I hope you’re as excited to see their new stuff as I am.
Yes, JyuJyu was included in the Megathread, so “new” in this case doesn’t completely apply when it comes to the people, but look, here are two live videos from last week, featuring the new quartet lineup and a pair of new songs:
I love this exact time of the year, with idols getting their spring releases out there and infesting YouTube with all kinds of madness.
Case in point, JyuJyu with the lead track off of their “black thread” single; we’ve heard the song before, and it’s fun, but the video’s one Lament Configuration or VHS tape short of taking us completely into a nightmare realm:
Thanks again, Terry!
If you’re into the doomier, gloomier side of idol (like I’m sure you are!), you probably have a net positive view of the cursed idols in JyuJyu (so cursed that their awesome video last year didn’t win anything!). If any part of the above is untrue in your case, have you been drinking?
JyuJyu dropped the remainder of their “Black Thread” single onto Soundcloud today, and I am ready:
It feels like only yesterday that we got to look in on the creepiest, cursiest idols in the business, JyuJyu, but now their new single, “Black Thread,” is only a month away, and the details (remix!) and art are here for us:

Also, give it a listen: Continue reading
About a week ago, I had tweeted pure, raw excitement over this event — JyuJyu! Necroma! Uh, Dance for Philosophy! And others!(?) — that was going to be all incredibly dark and spooky and ARE YOU UNMOVED BY THE FACT THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN?
New collaboration: Wota sign up to be killed by JyuJyu and necromanced back by NECRONOMIDOL, then killed again, on & on #IdolPublicityStunts

Anyway, it ain’t much, but JyuJyu unleashed a pair of new songs onto the world and announced their first one-man (with this lineup, at least). May all gods dark and terrible protect us.
本日はじゅじゅの「宴」15戒目 ありがとうございました！本日発表した楽曲は「あたしはMAMONO」と、新曲「怨返し（おんがえし）」の2曲！またイベント中に発表しましたが、3月19日（日）渋谷eggmanにて新体制初ワンマンライブ（夜帯）を行います。 pic.twitter.com/ixEjJK7JDK

I may have failed to get everything together for us to enjoy from last week’s Idol Koushien event, but plenty of other people have delivered. This is one of the stages that I definitely wanted to catch and didn’t: The living curses in JyuJyu:
I was completely asleep on JyuJyu’s new single, for shame, and of course this all dovetails with Halloween.
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be haunted, stalked and murdered by human curses, and film the entire thing? Get a gander at “Noroi Hajime”:
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.
I always feel like a doofus for having come onto JyuJyu so relatively late in the game — they weren’t on my radar when I started to build this site, and I only caught up to them well after the original group looked to be dying, but they added two members over the summer and played JAM and … well, given that they’re literally cursed and all, I can say without equivocation that their first release as a reconfigured demon unit looks like the stuff of nightmares.
