S/mileage is now ANGERME, and the reason is as dumb as any

ANGERMEGroup

Girl group S/mileage have changed their name to ANGERME. Why? Well surely it’s because they’re going with an angrier, gruffer concept or something, right? No, it’s for angel tears. The new name was apparently thought up by member Kana Nakanishi. ANGERME is supposed to be the french pronunciation of “angel” and “tears”. Kana explained that the members of the group ...

Ryu Sera releases ‘Hear Us’ MV, which had moments but could’ve benefited from help

RyuSeraHearUs

Ryu Sera, formerly of Nine Muses, recently released (independently, I think) her music video for “Hear Us“, and it’s certainly a departure from idol music. Conceptually, I get what she’s going for, and her voice during the “hear us” parts is great.
