Just how popular are Shibuya Girls? Well, popular enough with the teen market that J-pop duo Yumachi & Aina, both models with the Shibuya-kei fashion magazine Egg, have seen their debut single reach No.1 on the download charts. “I Love…” is a sentimental love song aimed squarely at the female teen market. With their tans, striking makeup and blonde curls, the duo are typical of the current Shibuya-kei look and about as far as you can get from the image of the traditional Japanese female.

Talento Terrence Lee markets himself as a bad ass security expert, but he had the stuffing knocked out of him by a drunk late last night.

The two got into a scuffle and Lee – a former mercenary – was badly beaten, while Inaba was arrested on the spot.
