Dawa made it to the Forbes Japan "30 under 30" list for 2020.

^That's pretty cool! Not gonna lie, she's spoken about a lot of interesting things, and she's leading a new wave of feminism through Japan.


Sayumi stars in a Clinique commercial. Seeing which commercials Sayu has gotten so far and comparing her to what Ai and Reina have done since graduation I wonder where the latter two went wrong.

(Not much to wonder though, it's probably connections and trying to stay in music/theater vs. being a persona in entertainment business.)

Does she really do a lot of commercials? Just based on what I’ve seen, she doesn’t really seem to get much more work than the average graduate.

That said I can’t really picture Ai or Reina doing a Clinique commercial. Reina especially does not really fit the Clinique image lol.

Nah, she's not a commercial regular, but I mean the type of products. Sayu has promoted Clinique and donuts while Ai and Reina were in a commercial about a product that keeps bad smells out of your fridge.

While the products Ai and Reina hawk are lame, I think there was a big deal made out of them doing promotions for that company. Makes them household names, I guess?

It's also the company that produces the Anne of Green Gables musical they both starred in.

^I guess it's on the level of Kei promoting car cleaning products. To be fair, Fukupika is a household name for car cleaning.


Ozeko opened up an instagram account! I feel sorry for the recently graduated, especially younger members of Up-Front. Dawa kind of knew what she wanted to do and she can do it, but Murotan and Ozeko have been in limbo since their grad (except for Ozeko's acting in that horror shorts show). And Minami wanted to study abroad which is also on hold right now.

Gakisan saw that she had a lot of followers from the US and Korea so... she tried doing a cooking video in English :lol:


Oh boy... :lol:


/Edit: AND Ozeki Mai will be in a stageplay titled "PINK no Kawa de Nurui Iki" (PINKの川でぬるい息).


Before there's been some buzz about the location marker of her first insta post, it was an LGBT news site or something.

Her English is better than my Japanese, so I can't really talk. It's a cute video.

Suzuki Masayuki has been announced for Kouhaku this year, returning after 24 years. And he might perform "DADDY! DADDY! DO!".

So maybe there's a chance for Airi to perform with him.

Heike Michiyo has released a new digital single a few days ago and put a preview on her instagram account.

Now that's a surprise.

Aw yay I missed her!

Me too, I've feared that she'd left the business forever, like Maeda Yuki.


More OG news: Hirose Ayaka will hold her first solo live on December 15th, broadcasted live on Skyperfect TV! On Demand channel.

Moving fast!

The post on Michiyo's IG says she wrote the music and lyrics, which is pretty sweet. 


I hope we get a link for Hirose's live broadcast.
