It’s a busy time for You’ll Melt More!‘s Nerun. Fresh from releasing a new mini-album and MV with the rest of the group, she has seemingly undergone successful separation surgery from her conjoined twin Nani, with whom she was formerly fused at the kawaii, and has now launched a solo project – Nerun Poku Poku – with three simultaneous singles.
We’re fast approaching a new era for Yurumerumo! as Kechon (A founding member!) and Chiffon (A member since 2013!) prepare to graduate in October! Let’s face it, it’s a seismic shift for this legendary idol unit as it passes the torch to an entire pack of “Pupil More”s. Nani and Nerun, who only joined last year, are going to be the veteran members! So the next year of YMM! will be one of growth and finding their footing as the unit steps up into something new and also continues the legacy of the past.
So here we have the first live-action MV featuring all the fresh new upstarts, and what is quite possibly the final video for Chiffon and Kechon. The song is called “47 Cities in the East” and it’s just what we love about this group. Let’s watch!
Unofficial Homicidols house band You’ll Melt More! have been uncharacteristically quiet of late. Perhaps our marathon coverage of them last year scared them away? I can’t think of anything else on this hapless planet that could account for it. But now they’re back, back, back and 75% bigger besides. Three more recruits have been promoted from the Pupil More! subs bench, so it’s hello to Heso (orange), Matsuri (yellow) and Meari (blue) who was formerly known as Waka.
Welcome to part 52 of our increasingly inaccurately named “50 YMM MVs” series, but unless they drop a fifty-third one in the next twenty-four hours – a not completely remote possibility – then we have at last reached the finale.
I don’t know whether we won anybody over to the You’ll Melt More! fandom or whether anyone managed to stick with our coverage until the end but we had fun revisiting all their music videos anyway. We finish with their latest one, from about three weeks ago – Mou Innai Ringo Ame (No More Thanks Candied Apple):
Yes, it was inevitable that if we did a feature on all the music videos of a group well known for being prolific producers of music videos, then there was a high chance of more music videos being released in the middle of our coverage. So now we enter extra time in our You’ll Melt More! chronicles with the MV for Yuru-bics!
Sadly after over three years with a stable line-up, Ano suddenly withdrew unexpectedly from You’ll Melt More! in late September 2019. We were left to wonder what the future held for the group after the loss of such a popular member. Then on New Year’s Eve, we got…this thing:
The hell was that?! Anyway we’ve decided not to count it in our list, not because it’s, er, special, but because the group’s Youtube account filed it under their commercials/announcements playlist and not their MV one. Instead YMM MV #49 is Surpriser, from February of this year.
We’re almost at the end of our journey, so what better way to celebrate than by being launched into space to dance with You’ll Melt More?
Hey Rudies, etcetera! Today You’ll Melt More! embark on an ambitious campaign of nothing less than global insurrection, aiming to bring down the world’s governments and replace them with, er, ska I guess? It’s the MV for WOW WOW WAR ~Ska-Champon Sing-Along Front~.
Hey Rudies! Today The You’ll Melt More! give ya natty natty ska champion beat in the MV for Sayonara Sekai (Goodbye World).
YOU’LL MELT MORE!, in their continuing efforts to be among the most prolific MV artists in the idol scene, were on a hot streak at this point. Not satisfied with creating video content for every song on every single, they also shot MVs featuring remixes too!
Up today is a video for “Never Give Up Suiken (Yoe Yoe Remix)”, a new version of their terrific Kung-Fu film-inspired single from only a couple of months before. Made largely to promote their tour at the time, the girls took matters to the streets…
