Guso Drop, At It Again

Well, those girls of 偶想Drop really know how to sell a thing. If you have ever bought their CDs before you know they have some unique types of marketing. If you bought the release むし (mushi) you ended up with four copies, you know, so you can distribute three to prospective fans. Then with 偶神 (guushin) they made it limited to 1000 CDs but with 26 cover variations. Sort of a rip on standard idol CDs variants. Well, now we have something new.

First we have a mini-album from 偶想Drop entitled “Painfully violent”. I am sure most of you have seen it on YouTube during a live. It will be 9 tracks and was recorded by the current line-up, all 6 of them.

Waka Should Be Fine

Today I was a bit under the weather, and nobody likes to feel that way. Thus, I can really feel for Waka-chan from 偶想Drop. Last night during their live she suffered an asthma attack. She was not able to work the merchandise table, I think she went to the hospital but I have not verified this.  I don’t think she should feel bad about it myself, she can’t control when an attack will happen.

We hope she will be back in action soon. Such a dynamic new performer for the group.
