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.

Do you like your metal doomy and your idols cursed? Well, friend, you’ve come to the right place.

JyuJyu recently reformed and are bringing their brand of all-black, bass-heavy idol metal to TIF over the weekend, and that’s not bad considering that the project was all but dead just a few months ago.
As promised, JyuJyu came fully back to life this past Monday; I got the update from TGU, so why not let them keep that thunder:

Here’s a photo of them looking very menacing indeed.

And your reminder of why JyuJyu is cool. Also, time to get a new banner.

Oh, and they’re booked for TIF, too. If somebody mysteriously and literally breaks a leg, you know who to blame.
I’d seen references to this duo for a while but hadn’t ever sought them out. Not like as a personal thing — there’s just a ton of stuff to get through, and websites don’t build themselves, and I do have a little bit of a life, you know.
But anyway, Jyujyu! Continue reading
