Every now and again, it’s worth following up on idols you particularly enjoyed. Sometimes, the hint you get is about as subtle as an explosion; other times, it’s just a little blip on the Twittersphere that says that maybe there’s something worth looking into.
Yesterday, a little bit of us kicked off following Lyric Holic official’s announcement that the group is inexplicably rebooting after dying:

“How peculiar,” I thought, largely because I always thought that Lyric Holic was effectively self-managed. “I wonder what the old members are up to in this case?”
This is the rewarding part.
Tama got involved in this short-term collaboration with the members of Bakuon Dolls Syndrome and Bokura no Oyugi:

And Julia’s joined a burlesque revue:
If you were curious as to Shiori’s whereabouts, she’s apparently supporting the new auditions (maybe to stick around? WHO KNOWS!), but her Twitter stream has become a truly wonderful thing:

So it’ll be interesting to see where this goes. Other than Guso Drop and the never-say-sleep Zekkyou, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a chika group be as willing to grind as Lyric Holic always ways, and goodness knows that we need more ear-splitting intensity in this world. If any of the old members are going to re-involve themselves in the new iteration of the group, that’d be something on its own, but it’s not even that important — it’s just cool to see that there’s idol live after idol, or at least never-ending connections.
