This is a post that’s taken most of a week to come together, and I have a feeling that it’s still insufficient, so bear with me, don’t get mad if details are left out, and please do enjoy the tracks to follow.
So. Alloy. They’re pretty good! They’ve also dealt with their share of turnover, as one would expect in idol. Par for the course! Also, if you happen to be a fan of Alloy and/or specific members thereof, completely and irrevocably devastating. Why anybody likes idol, I will never understand.
Nonetheless, the whole point of this is that Momoko’s graduating, like imminently, and the group dropped a couple of tracks to commemorate. Last of the current regime:
And the first-ever Alloy solo track, naturally for Momoko, as a nod to her long-time service:
Additionally also, the Alloy that we’ve come to know and love will, after 1.65 years, no longer have any of the original members, and will be changing their name:

They also no longer look quite as intimidatingly jack-booted as they did originally, so a change is fine
Idol, man. I don’t actually know if there are immediate / current plans to add members or what, but that’s a good bit of change in not a terribly long bit of time. We’ll see! WILL-O’ will be active before we know it, and I’m sure that many an answer will be provided to accompany.
As for Momoko, she drew this picture of uijin the other day, so her spirits seem fairly high:
