✩#39 – Gal News: Hello Sales! Goodbye DaTuRa?!✩

GALEO

Black Diamond has announced their summer sale where you can get items up to 50% off! You can even find a nice set of all three of their music CDs. It includes their first two singles and their first mini album 「チョベリグ Lucky♡Day」.


RADY

If you love Rady, they are having their annual Summer sale! You will be able to get up to 50% off on a lot of their items. They’ve even included some of their adorable rainbow items!


DaTuRa

And now…for not so happy news.

DaTuRa has announced that it will be shutting down by August 31st. This applies to its physical stores as well as online. It looks like its sister brand Delyle NOIR is safe at the moment. But it really is sad to hear about a brand going out of business. Especially if it’s Gyaru-related.

2014 style

DaTuRa is an onee gyaru brand that was produced and directed 10 years ago by Reina Komatsu (小松玲奈). They are very well-known for their feminine bijou style, sexy yet comfortable and over-sized knits and floral prints. They were always featured in 小悪魔 Ageha which has also ended earlier this year. See my blog post here.

2019 style

Though the style has toned down its look in recent years, it still kept the onee vibe. I always admired it but never got to purchase anything from it. But until the end of August and while items last, there will be sales for everything.

The end of DaTuRa sounded like it was a long time coming. At least that’s what I get from Reina’s blog and her Insta post (shown below). She explains how she really went back and forth on the topic. Because it sounds like her life is changing again in a big way! She will now be starting a family. It’s a really difficult decision to let go of a dream you had for a long time. But people grow and change in different ways and she was able to make it a reality for a good while until this new dream came to be real. Reina and everyone involved seem to have had an amazing journey and only have wonderful memories they’ll always keep.

  1. Nooooooo ꒰⁎′̥̥̥ ⌑ ‵̥̥̥ ꒱ why are these brands doing this to me! Sigh….Do you think Rady will be next? I honestly imagined Rady going first before DaTuRa :/ I really loved their glamorous style.

    1. I know right? It kills me too! I had a feeling it was going to be DaTuRa first because Rady still seems to be popular. Especially with all the different kinds of items they make now. But it really is sad.
