The 2016 Tokyo Idol Festival is now just in the past, but what a trio of days it was! We had new idols, injured idols, sanity-losing idols … basically, it’s a crying-ass shame that TIF doesn’t go on tour, because that would be amazing.
- Fruitpochette revealing a new member (hi, Rum!), new music and death growls to rival anybody else’s in the game
- PassCode’s Yuna, the current leader in idol harsh vocals, performing with her butt glued to a stool and still managing to shift the magnetic north pole during “Never Sleep Again”
- GANG PARADE’s Ao graduating on an epic stage
- BiSH doing “Hoshi ga Matataku Yoru ni” six times in a row in the Heat Garage and giving up all pretense of GAF by the midway point
@ramenshuriken was the hero of the weekend, ripping video from the TV feeds; you can watch it all on this playlist:
There’s even more video and photos and whatnot in the comments on the Megathread, and there will be plenty more that’ll trickle out onto video sites and Twitter soon. If you happen across more stuff, go ahead and stick it in the comments here.
