Above is a clip from the yesterday's livestream - along with a very important announcement.

Gacharic Spin is moving to a major label in October! They promise that the band, the image, and the members will remain the same despite the move. They are very thankful to all the fans who have made this possible, and they hope for continued support in the future. They hope the move to a major label will make it possible for them to reach a larger audience while still staying true to their Gacha roots.

Their first release as a major band will be a Best Of album. It's slated for release October 1st 2014.

Gachadancer #1 Mai turns 17 today. Go show her some love by commenting on this blog post! ^o^

Apparently Mai is a huge Disneyland nerd (just like me!), and she spent her birthday with the other Gachapin girls at Disney Sea.

Here's to wishing Mai a wonderful year~

The girls are currently hard at work learning enough French to be able to do their MCs in between songs in French for their Japan Expo gig! The two dancers are studying too, Mai invites fans to teach her useful words and phrases in this blog post.

So go help her out if you can! I would, but I don't know any French ...

Oreo is so ridiculously adorable here, I can't even deal

Both Koga and the dancers have been talking a lot about smoothies and juice lately XD; Apparently bananas are very hot right now.

Koga has been doing a couple of sweet retrospective posts on how far Gachapin has come compared to the last time they were in Paris (which was right after Armmy left the band). This particular post is here.

She's also updating about the major prep work required for their big headlining show at Zepp DiverCity in October (I wish I could go!).

Their tour schedule has been updated yet again, here is the current overview of all their upcoming shows in Japan:

2014.07.11(fri) Osaka MUSE

The girls have been doing a special fan club related photo shoot! No pictures from the shoot yet, hopefully they'll share some goodies later.

Koga complains about the heat ... it's not even July yet!

The Gacha dancers enjoy cold Chunky Cookie Frappuccinos (T___T). That sounds delicious, girls.

Koga blogged this stunning selfie today, and it needed sharing.

Weirdly enough she blogs about being badly sunburnt .... I am not seeing it. And apparently Koga is just like me. Telling herself that she needs to buy sunblock, and then whoops whoops it's a month later and still no sunblock (just burnt skin) 8D

These daily confirmations that our idols are just like us make me feel better about myself XD

I have updated the userinfo, sidebar and header of the community to match the current status of the band :) Long time no see!

Gachapin now has 6000 followers on twitter! They promise that if they reach 7000 within the year, TOMO-ZO will do a live show all by herself! Haha :D

There's an announcement up on the front page of the official Gacharic Spin website.

Armmy has decided to leave the band.

There's no real comment on what happens next, but it's clear that the three remaining girls hope to bring Gacharic Spin back somehow. I'm really saddened by these news, but of course understand that Armmy's health is more important.
