Been trying to stretch these C-ute posts out, so far it's worked out well but starting to come to the end of 2017 happenings that haven't been posted about. Was just looking at the date and it's now been two months since the group's final concert, the world of J-Pop hasn't been the same since then.
Above are the covers of two DVD's coming out next month for their shows in Mexico and Paris which took place in April. Can't believe they didn't make the trip up a bit north to America as C-ute never performed a show here. Also next month their second final photobook "Brilliant" will be coming out, say second because in May a PB was released which was supposed to be their final one. The video at the top is a short promo one for the book.
Sure after their visit the 'Arc de Triomphe' has been renamed to 'Arc de Cute'!
The gals have kept busy since they disbanded except for Mai who had plans to go to America to study English and perhaps something else. Airi still has her 'Airi's Potion' radio show and does modeling for Ray but she's been kind of quiet lately.
Maimi and Saki still do a variety show together titled "Furusato no Yume" and have only seen one show even though it's been airing since January. Will watch a few more shows to post about them but none are subbed in English, also have a video of the pair on a fan club tour which I need to view. Chisato is the first member to release a solo single and think it came out this week. Always have liked her but still haven't done a solo post for her and will work on one with info on the new single. She looks quite good in her solo pic and so don't the other members from what may have been their final spread from volume 38 of UTB+.
That final pic was a promo one for the upcoming photobook. A C-ute post would not be complete without H!P cards so here they are and do have one more small batch of them left.
In case you need some desktop calendars here are a few for August and September.
They took some work but think the posts I enjoyed doing the most were for the 'C-ute singles series'. Just went back to mid 2011 as before that the members were a bit young though now they're all between 21 to 25. Going back to that year meant that their 2010 single "Dance de Bakoon" has never been talked about.
In concert that's the most popular tune they perform as it's so upbeat and fun. Kind of amazed that it's C-ute's lowest ranking single as it only reached #8 on the charts but they weren't nearly as popular as they became. Here are two of the covers for the single and of course have a live video of the song from 2016 after them, if you've never heard the tune then I highly, highly recommend viewing it.
