With a strong closing week to their Campfire campaign, 2018 Corenament defending champion Minna no Kodomochan hit 100% of their all-or-nothing fundraising goal with just two-and-a-half days to go. This means that Everyone’s Children will now bless us all with a new song for each of the next five months and follow that up with a 15-date, Japan-wide tour.
They immediately celebrated their campaign’s success by releasing a dance MV for “Shoujo A”.
This is super neat, you guys! Bonnou Paradox, the idols making the level best effort to directly replace Guso Drop in the chikasphere, released this pretty comprehensive mini-documentary from the making of their “NO=LIMIT” video and accompanying time:
You know what’s great about dual monitors and private work spaces? Being able to let this play with impunity, seeing how the sausage gets made, while still analyzing data from program audits!

Ah, the ONEMAN isn’t just for him leaving, it’s for the dissolving of the entire group. Again, as per my older post, I still think it’s a hoax for many reasons. But, make no mistake, it’s about the WHOLE group, not just one without him.
As we know, Deathrabbits may in fact be preparing for a Bucho-less future. The much-maligned manager/vocalist/shoddy investor was put on notice a few months back, being told that his financial shenanigans were leading him to be booted from the group, his last live scheduled for a November date at LIQUID.
