Yeah I don't think the coverer sounds like her.  I can see it in some spots but there is something about it I can't quite explain that makes me think it's just people grasping at straws.

Good for her. She probably got as much out of Baby Metal as there was for her to get.

Article I saw said she plans to resume a range of entertainment activities, which honestly just sounds like code for stage plays. I’d be pretty surprised to see her release music with any sort of notable frequency.

Good enough. Her stage play performances were always great, while her (general) singing wasn't.

Same, I'll take whatever Riho I can get... And I think there's a lot more hardcore fans that feel that even more strongly than I do, lol. She has the abilities to be a true entertainer, so I'm curious to see how far she takes this and what type of entertainment she'll do.

Heads up, the maybe-it-is, maybe-it-isn't Zukki channel uploaded again--this time a cover of SHISHAMO's "Natsu no Koibito"

 

The film/editing/mixing was done by MONCO, AKA some random girl from Instagram (she also mixed the previous two covers and provided the pictures.) I'm assuming it's a friend of whoever the uploader is. 

 

I love SHISHAMO, so this cover was a big win for me :) Plus the video is really pretty.

It’s from Music Fair’s 9/12 episode. She was supposed to do a song from The Sound of Music too but who knows of the clip will ever make its way to YouTube.

Nihei Yuuka (PINK CRES) will play Tsuru Hana in the latest stage play adaption of "Nier: Automata".

I've seen people left and right talking about Nier lately, so that's quite a thing.

Remember Sonim? She has apparently remained active in show business since parting ways with Tsunku, but she is celebrating her 20th year in the industry with a remake of "Curry Rice no onna" and a new song written by Tsunku. Here are a couple of tweets translating the announcement and Tsunku's comments.

She's actually been super active in the musical scene and even spent quite a bit of time in New York training for it.

 

She's never released anything since starting that though, so it's nice to finally see something people outside of Japan can enjoy.

^^ Don't care about Nier, but I'm happy for Yuuka. She's my favorite member of PINK CRES. by far and I would love if she could find some kind of longevity in the industry.

^ I didn't really listen to Sonim much, but the few EE Jump songs I'm familiar with are very much the kind of music I vibed with as an 11 year old, looking up "DDR" in limewire. Honestly shocked that she's been working in some capacity this whole time.

That was great, I love The Sound of Music :)

 

I thought they did a good job capturing the softness of Julie's version (I haven't ever seen any of the play versions so I can't compare, lol)

Yeah, it's hard to tell if she's implying she's bi, or if she "fell in love" with a girl but she was just never convinced of that sexuality either. It's obvious from this interview, though, that she wants to change the way some Japanese people still view gay people, as if they're a different type of person..... I'm not too surprised. She's very progressive and expressive and open; so if she were to be gay/bi, I would not be shocked as she has been exposed to many different cultures and philosophies... so that she doesn't see it as that big of a deal to admit to not being straight.

Yeah, she’s not really ‘coming out’ in the way I think most Americans would think of it, but it’s still a very bold statement all things considered.

She’s had an Instagram for a couple of years too if anyone is interested in following her. She’s not a crazy frequent poster but she’s not inactive either.

/EDIT: They have added more photos to her profile: https://nfbnfb.co.jp...el/maho_aikawa/

My favourite is this one: https://nfbnfb.co.jp...9/cut04_009.jpg

It's pretty much how I remember her :lol:

Another cover by Kasane, this time it's FIRE GROUND (official hige dandism).

 

I don't like that this sounds more like Zukki. My heart can't take it.

Wow, that sounds a lot more like her but I still can't say for sure. Could her voice have improved that much?

 

She covered one of my fave Hitomi Shimatani songs, and the beginning doesn't sound like Zukki at all but the actual verses do a bit: https://www.youtube....h?v=HwYOdUjEdKA

 

Honestly I feel like one way or another we're never gonna for sure know the answer unless we hear it from Zukki herself.

I'm sticking by my original judgement that it's definitely her.

 

I still can't get over the fact that the artist who drew her avatar is an H!P fan who has interacted with Harunan and drawn an H!P manga, lol. Of course there's still all the other stuff on top that just solidifies it for me. She's been graduated for 4 years which is plenty of time to regain some lost true training time. Even in one of her cooking videos she put how she's constantly singing...
