The fourth in series of short articles highlighting some of the rarer CDs that I have been able to acquire. This entry might not be one of the rarest CDs out there but it is still not well known. A brief look at the groups “full” discography does not even hint at its existence. Lets see if we can dig up some information on じゅじゅ – 「呪呪」.
Garry, Terry and John are back one more time to talk about all kinds of idol news. Garry and Terry chat about some stuff, John had some beers and news was discussed. It was a good time, well, it always is.
In the news this week:
- BiS preview the b-side from their upcoming “SOCiALiSM” single (and also ban lifting at their shows).
- BiSH, CY8ER and Uijin all announce details of their upcoming releases.
- NECRONOMIDOL announce a London show.
- Zenbu Kimi no Sei da preview a solo song for Mene.
- Jyu Jyu lose a member.
- Cure。add a member.
- Living Dead I Dolls get a new look, announce a one-man live and a weekly concert series.
For some reason there was not a single video release this week, weird.

It looks like graduation season is still in full swing. I figured it might be over, boy was I wrong. I really started to enjoy JyuJyu in a big way when they relaunched in July 2016 with two new members joining Neu-chan. Those members were Minoru and Miori. Along with them soon came the release of ノロイハジメ (Noroi Hajime) and the video for the title track. I am sure we can all remember that. Today there is a bit of sad news.
Well, here they are, じゅじゅ [JyuJyu], with their new video, 「黒糸」. I was wondering when we would find out what this little video clip was all about. Now we know, it is another great video from the cursed idols. Now it is not as cinematic as their previous offering, but it is very good in its own way. I want to know where all the chair footage is, like seen in the short clip.
So I am going to try out a bit of a new style of story, the quickie. These will be short bits with only a little content. They will later be expanded as more information comes along. So, on with the story.
It looks as if JyuJyu is shooting an MV. Information is scant at the moment. I am assuming that it is for the title track from the new release, 黒糸 [Black Thread]. While it does look a little brighter than the last video they gave us, only time will tell what we will really get. When we get a little more information we will let you know.
So far all we have is this little video clip.

Have ever woken up to the feeling of your very essence being sucked from your body by a malevolent outside force? We neither have I, but good old Terry did let me know the JyuJyu has released the other two tracks from their upcoming single. Oh man, this is going to be quite the release and I for one can not wait. Lets see what we have here. I am going to go through all three tracks…… yeah I already told you about the previous release last week, I think you will live though.
JyuJyu unveiled a new look at the Vantan IDOL COLLECTION -JAPANICATION- Runway show at EBiS303. Now I did say new, what I mean by that is that the Gothic aesthetic is still there but the clothing is new. I think that it is more Gothic than before, which is awesome. I mean who doesn’t love that particular image. It does suit the musical subject matter well.
Now, if they would just push that new release forward a tiny bit, I don’t want to wait until March.
Enough of my rambling, lets see what we have to look forward to from these three fine ladies.
Oh boy do I love me some
First, a new single, 「黒糸」, to be released on March 14, 2017. It will have three tracks, one of which is a remix of the title track. Priced as expected ¥1080 (tax in). Pretty much the only questions I have is: Where can I pre-order?
Last night at 月見ル君想フ JyuJyu performed a live with NECRONOMIDOL entitled じゅじゅの「宴」. That in itself would have been great to behold. Here is a photo of the girls.
One of our favorites around these parts, じゅじゅ (JyuJyu), was out on a photo shoot for LoGiRL today. Looks like a fashion type shoot rather than a shoot in their usual gothic type attire. We look forward to seeing the full article. No word on when it will be out.
