Yuimetal is still in BABYMETAL

A spokesperson from the American mangement company representing BABYMETAL has confirmed Yuimetal remains a member of the Japanese pop/metal alloy act. The statement stems from the fan response to Yuimetal’s absence from the first two dates of the band’s current U.S. tour.

When asked specifically about her absence from this tour, a representative from 5B Management confirmed that “Yuimetal remains a member of the band, but she is not on this current U.S. tour. There is a new narrative for the future of the band which is currently evolving. The storyline has changed. This was the basis of the ‘Metal Resistance Episode 7: The Revelation’ video.” The representative went on to explain that the seven hooded figures in the bombastic clip represent a new era for the band, with the addition of new characters. “The who, when, where, and how of The Chosen Seven will be presented as the concept unfolds.”

BABYMETAL kicked off a much-anticipated U.S. tour this week in Kansas City, Missouri, but the unannounced absence of Yuimetal led to rampant speculation of the singer’s whereabouts. Fans have been using the hashtag #whereisyuimetal to demand answers.

While the commentary does little to answer what’s going on with fan-favorite Yuimetal (aka Yui Mizuno, 18), it does fuel speculation over what the next over-the-top chapter will be in BABYMETAL’s storied history.

Never thought this would be seen. Footage of Yui falling off stage at Budokan.

Go to the beginning of the video to see scan caps to better see what happened. The video starts just before Yui falls, a bit difficult to see due to arms moving.
Video contains Headbanger and IDZ, crowd give a big cheers when they see Yui return. You can’t see Moa when she falls during IDZ. Of course we are all glad Yui and Moa came out ok, professionals both.

I wonder when we will get all 25 members together?

Sakura Gakuin Shokuinshitsu (Hereafter SGS)
To do that we would need to rent out a shop or restaurant somewhere. Could you on the Raura side do that? (laughs)

Raura
Wow! Are you serious?
I would like you, the teachers to do that.

Ayami
So, I guess I will pull it off!

Raura
Sounds like something you could do, Kaichou!

Ayami
Should we invite Mori-sensei?

Hinata
Maybe I should come dressed up as the legendary Mori-sensei.

Raura
Moa did an imitation of him as well, so there would be 3 of you (him).
Mori-sensei, you have to be protective of your position as the homeroom teacher!
