My Day’s Been Dragging, So Let’s Enjoy Some PiGU Sets

I don’t know if it’s because I got up really early and then late, or because I’m telecommuting and don’t have the usual “MANIAC COME HELP WITH THIS PLEASE” at work to distract me, but today feels like it needs to end at any time, and it’s still only noon.

So you know what can help with that? Some friggin’ PiGU, that’s what.

PiGU, I Love You, Why Is There So Much Drama?

Hey, remember how PiGU had five members when they first appeared here, and then all of a sudden they didn’t have that many, and then they spent most of the summer as a duo, and then suddenly were up to four and then five? Me too! That was … well, it was an excuse to keep listening to PiGU, who do make it easy, what with new video all the time and stuff.

Anyway, guess who’s going through another bout of membership madness? Just translate your way through this string of tweets:

PiGU’s New Single Is Good, But the Promo Is Bonkers

I feel like I’ve been giving PiGU a lot of love lately, but this is what happens when you’re active and fun. For instance, just a week ago we got to look at the MV for one of the tracks on their new maxi single, and it was pretty far from the expected, but that’s okay; the A-side or whatever is available on their website, too.

It’s the teaser they released late last week that should really get your attention.

No matter what you think it’s about, there’s always one thing that kind of ruins that outlook

But that’s not all that’s going on. Continue reading

In Addition to This Video, There’s a Lot of PiGU Happening

One of my favorite things about little pop punkers PiGU is the way they crank out content like it’s the only thing that matters. Sure, they have a cosplay cafe and stuff to promote, but the membership goes up and down and there’s new songs and videos and a DVD and one-man and … hey look, another new video!

“Get out of My Way!” Continue reading

Here’s the New & Improved PiGU in Action

As mentioned before, PiGU excels at cranking out live video, which is especially helpful now that they’ve re-expanded out to four members and, you know, you wonder if they’re good. Turns out, they are!

PiGU Teases the Future

PiGU! Right after putting out some video for their new single and sort of nailing down their two-person lineup … they added a couple of members and released teasers for even more fresh music. It kind of slipped under the radar because they released on the literal eve of TIF, but look:

PiGU Powers on in This MV for Their New Single

So PiGU’s been through the membership wringer, but the remaining two members ain’t care. Or maybe they do. I don’t know. What I do know is that this is a nice little seasonally appropriate song, “かくれんぼ” (“Hide-and-seek”) with a little punk edge to it.

The lyrics are actually here in the video description, if you’re interested.

I like you, PiGU. You make me smile.

Check out This Little PV for PiGU’s Next Single

Sure, turn over just about all of your membership in a few months, PiGU. Just keep on truckin’.

It’s summer. The singles are bright and cheery. What do you want me to say?

What the Hell Is Going on with PiGU?

A whole mess of live video has been added to their YouTube channel over the last few days, but something with PiGU is amiss.

Here’s their first appearance on this site. This is what they looked like as of a few days ago:

Their website only shows two members, too. Like, going back to video from earlier in 2016 even, that’s a lot of loss over a few months. What gives?
