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.

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.

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.

^ 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.
