Not even a week ago, Bellring Girls Heart held their final appearance (as Bellring Girls Heart). Tears were shed. Two long-time members, Ayano and Mizuho, were graduating, Ayano to pursue a solo career (which should be interesting) and Mizuho to retire from entertainment; an idol and Bellheart member since she was 15, she felt it was time to move on with her life’s work. It was a bittersweet goodbye.
And then, in the most punk rock thing possible, Mizuho showed up yesterday as a member of wrestling/rock/idol/band thing Natsu no Mamono:

Bellring Girls Heart went into dormancy yesterday with their HELLO WORLD live that was streamed live on YouTube and then, after a little while, mercilessly taken away from us, thereby robbing untold dozens of international fans of the opportunity to see idol’s murder of crows go out like only they could.
Good thing for us, then, that Bellheart re-published the video!
I’m sorry, gang, because I was going to try to record the Babel show’s Niconico stream this morning, but I’m still fighting whatever goofy bug crawled up in me and died, and waking up in time to get that recording going just wasn’t in the cards — hopefully, another enterprising person who’s fewer hours away from Japan took care of it. However, I am still pleased to be showing you some new material from the soon-to-go-dormant-and-oh-crap Bellring Girls Heart.

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 →
Only three weeks and change remain in Bellring Girls Heart as we’ve known them, and an indeterminate hiatus looms. They are, however, going out in style, and I won’t stop wanting to chronicle and share these performances that they’re doing with their friends in the scene as part of the Shallow Grave tour.
Very important are their good pals You’ll Melt More!, with whom they’ve done plenty of collaborations in the past and for whom, clearly, this whole process is more than a little bittersweet.
