I'll miss Ayano more than Sengoku, but with the massively lackluster choices for (2) they'll both be leaving very obvious gaps. More than anything though, I'm happy it isn't Konatsu or Mori Saki - either of those would be go a long way in hurting the amount of interest I've built up in UUG.

Akari Saho singing "Show Time" at her solo live…



This song is being released as the third track on the Regular B edition of the new single…

Definitely some Maki Goto vibes here.

Minami Sengoku had a personal SHOWROOM on May 3 to talk about stuff…



This might be the first of a new series. I'm not sure. She has her own channel page…

Note that it's a day before the rest of the new releases. Typical indie tactic to get on the chart.

I really hope Aya lets go of that nose instrument mess after a while. There's potential here for me to like her but the nose stuff just grosses me out.
