Before I even start, yes, I do sometimes think, “What up with Deathrabbits?” After the debacle that was the Corenament final, my heart started to open to them, and their dedicated champions in the West made sure that news was always available, and I even liked their album. But then things got quiet, and I stopped paying as close of attention, and … well, then Friday happened, leading us here to the other half of Death of Death Pop Sunday!
First, this tweet:
デスラビッツの部長解雇、連帯責任としてリキッドで「ラストライブw」 – 音楽ナタリー https://t.co/PtOQME2dGp

If you follow through to the Natalie.mu story, it doesn’t get much clearer than this: Bucho is out. Fired? Quit? Who knows? The constant references to noodles aren’t helpful.
Our friendly neighborhood Japanese speakers provided not-exactly-conflicting explanations, that … well, Bucho is out, and Deathrabbits are dead, but there seems to be some sentiment for Emi, Karin and Yuzu to continue on.
Those Deathrabbits fans who didn’t bail, what are you reading out of this situation?
