I will make no secret of the fact that I’m super-duper excited about Bellring Girls Heart agencymate / sister group Yanakoto Sotto Mute; their EP is fantastic, and they have a very cool vibe that’s more “opium den” than Bellheart’s “graceful mania.”
In addition to the fantastic art they just employed (Look at that banner! My goodness.), they also introduced a new fourth member today! Continue reading →
But Ayuni D (DY-NO-MITE!) has probably been the fandom’s biggest target of attention of all. Who is this demure new person in Hug Me‘s old position, what is she about, why does she look like somebody you might have known growing up, etc.? This interview rapidly made the rounds when she debuted, but it’s, you know, in Japanese. What if it were in English? Continue reading →
First things first: Fruitpochette’s management released this teaser video last night:
A-ha! Now, some very smart people have commented that, if Shiori were to be receiving a new partner/s for Fruitpochette to be Fruitpochette, it would probably happen at TIF, and the announced EP lined up well with an expectation that TIF would be a big spot for the project. And here we are! Congratulate yourselves, smart people!
So who’s it gonna be? Our only real clue is that the other member also wears combat boots, and that they are larger combat boots than Shiori’s. That could immediately set off alarm bells about a certain somebody returning to action, but it’s worth pointing out that like 95 percent of the world’s population (probably) has larger feet than Shiori, who is a very small person.
We’ve been waiting for this ever since Hug Me’s sad departure, and it makes sense that BiSH would make the announcement just a few days before returning to the scene of last year’s crimes against decorum at TIF that were in no way a work by management nope not at all.
