Victoria has nothing on this secret! Despite being in one of the nation’s most popular groups, Ayuni D has been keeping secret a little project for a while now. To the surprise of everyone, except the few BiSH fans who found out right away because of how distinctive her voice is, we’ve been thrust into the world of Aomushi (青虫).
Did I know that former gas station attendant Ayuni D was being hooked up with a solo project? And, unlike Chitti and Aina, it’s a standalone EP? (/checks notes) I did not! It’s a total surprise! And yet, here we are, and the dang record drops tomorrow and oh my goodness where the hell has this song been?
Also, I didn’t know that she could play the bass better than me
You know, I spent all this time thinking that Aina’s various solo projects, and then Chitti’s getting one of the most legitimately nice songs that I’ve heard in a while, that these were harbingers of big changes. Hell, when Ayuni D joined BiSH two years ago, I said in some conversation elsewhere that those two were probably going to be the next to go, to seek greener pastures than idol stages, and that BiSH would be “Atsuko and Ayuni D’s group in a couple of years.” (Yeah, I remember that but I can’t remember … Anyway.)

We are blessed, friends, blessed indeed, for there are those among us who are not only multilingual, but who are generous and willing to take content — lyrics, articles, interviews, etc. — and give it a little bit of a work so that it’s digestible for us, the English-addled masses. And over the past couple of days, we’ve gotten two very big gifts in the form of interviews with BiSH’s Ayuni D (in the ShuuPlay News) and Atsuko (IDOL and READ).
First up! Hashiyasume. As far as she goes, I actually think that Atsuko is now the only member of BiSH who I’ve never had occasion to feature via interview or other subject matter. And that’s not for want of her being cool in her way — she is! — it’s just a question of access and timing and things. And when Plain Sugar Subs tweeted out an Atsuko special from IDOL and READ, I was all over it.
I joined a different group but something feels not right, and I believe the same thing will happen to the group so, I decided to take on a hiatus until I found a group that is really suitable for me. I resumed my life as a part-timer for around a year, getting fatter from all the food given ( LOL ), and then I found out about … BiSH. I took the audition for the 1st generation because I believe that BiSH is my chance to be a star. I would probably become a total loser if i don’t make anything out of this, so seriously I was like; “This is my last chance.”

And then come back for the second half of the double feature! Continue reading
Between the BiS return spawning Know Your BiStory and successor-turned-sister group BiSH having a big free live that they streamed online and had pop up on YouTube mere hours after the fact, it was probably silly to think that this would somehow not be like that big FAKE METAL JACKET release week earlier in the year; it’s a WACK world, and we’re just living in it.
But Ayuni D (DY-NO-MITE!) has probably been the fandom’s biggest target of attention of all. Who is this demure new person in Hug Me‘s old position, what is she about, why does she look like somebody you might have known growing up, etc.? This interview rapidly made the rounds when she debuted, but it’s, you know, in Japanese. What if it were in English? Continue reading
We’ve been waiting for this ever since Hug Me’s sad departure, and it makes sense that BiSH would make the announcement just a few days before returning to the scene of last year’s crimes against decorum at TIF that were in no way a work by management nope not at all.
Your newest member of BiSH is … Continue reading
