This is (again!) old news for most folks, but it’s worth having and pushing out there a little: There There Theres, releasing their first single post-resurrection, are making it available for free via OTOTOY until the 10th:

There’s an interview there, too, if you can read it / know how to parse through Google jibberish. Continue reading

No, *Now* You Can Watch the Live Debut of There There Theres

The anticipation was great, the moment dripping with potential as the former-and-reformed Bellring Girls Heart, now christened There There Theres, shared the link to the livestream of their debut stage performance. Hundreds in attendance, thousands watching all over the world as five raven-winged schoolgirls hit all the right notes, made the right steps and showed that, while the faces may change, the essence of BRGH would live on forever. Powerful.

The problem was that the only people who heard anything were the ones in the building.

Oh, and how the kinds of people who are fans of things like BRGH/TTTs not only took that in stride, but made it into a crucial part of the show. Many excellent jokes and many more excellent puns were made. Poor Tanaka had to come out and apologize:

He vowed to fix it, and fix it he did: Continue reading

Does the sound work yet?

It’s Time to Meet the Rest of There There Theres

Ever since the announced re-launch of Bellring Girls Heart as There There Theres, the members not named Kai and Reina have been kept a little bit obscure; no acknowledged social accounts, no names, not even a complete confirmation that the black wings would, in fact, be back*.

But now here we go! All of those things in resplendent beauty:

Is This the New Face of Not-Bellring Girls Heart?

Well, yes, it is the new face of Not-Bellheart; more appropriately, it’s the face of There There Theres:

Amazing. Their debut one-man is on the 18th; they’re apparently going to unveil more of the image and members slowly between now and then. I think. I never know what to do when it comes to Bellheart-related stuff because they clearly enjoy screwing with us. Continue reading

Life after Death for BRGH’s Mizuho

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:

The Edge of Goodbye: Bellheart Goes out in Style

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!

That’s not the only gift that Bellheart left us, though. Continue reading

Watch Bellring Girls Heart’s Last Live Right Now

It looks like the stream is over; there’ll hopefully be caps of it available soon.

Man, a guy goes to sleep expecting recordings, not to wake up to a live stream of the end of an era.

Embedding’s been disabled, so click here for the YouTube stream of the HELLO WORLD final performance of Bellring Girls Heart, going back through their huge catalog.

The stream will end; when that happens, it’ll hopefully have been archived, and I’ll update accordingly.
