Yeah. Some of those girls are super cute, and some of them... aren't.

I like this girl.

I know there's one who speaks fluent English, because aisasami has been to the cafe and mentioned her. I'm not sure what her name is.

The girls also show up on Tsuntube a lot, but no one subs it. Episodes are still put up on youtube.

The white girl looks like the Overly Attached Girlfriend and Harunan had an illegitimate child.

They seriously couldn't take a better picture of that creepy white girl? Wow.

I think most of these girls look like literally any girl you could see walking down the street Posted Image I'm guessing that's part of the appeal - to not be intimidatingly attractive.

More or less, yeah, especially at this point in their careers. I'd argue that THE Possible members, the anime girl, and the white girls definitely don't fit the description of "any random girl" you'd see walking around Japan. If you said that same description didn't fit everyone in 9-11th gen Morning Musume, I think that'd warrant a throat-punch. Girls being pretty "average" in the beginning is one of Tsunku's big things, and kinda always has been.

Yeah, I'm not counting The Possible girls, haha. And I'd actually say those two white girls are honestly below average looking, tbh. And I guess I'll shield my throat now, because I think most of 9-11th gen started out cuter/more interesting looking than these girls. Posted Image

The white girls may be below average looking for white girls, but they are definitely not common in Japan. The boring new MM girls might have looked "cuter" because they were younger when they started (and still are,) but every one of those girls is as indistinguishable as they come. *punch*

Yoropiku Pikuyoro MV

You'll probably ask about the girl with the glasses, and I'll tell you right now that her name is A.D. Nagisa.

They're also getting a major debut.

And have a facebook page.

Dafuq did I just watch? :whatthe:

Are there really that many of them?
How do they dance that quickly?
I feel badly for the girls all the way in the back, if they aren't repeat images of the girls dancing in the front.
What's with the kaleidoscope scenes, or the ones where they enlarge the features?

So many things about this are repelling. I'm scared. Hide me.

The only thing that was repelling to me was the fucking awful quality of the video they uploaded. Seriously, is this like, late 90s internet videos here? The song is pretty fantastic and the video is extremely similarly hyper and crazy, but it was hard to watch with that shite quality. Unfortunately, though, we'll probably never get anything better unless they release a DVD with their indie stuff on it.

I like the song and I adore A.D. Nagisa. Meganeko are my weakness AND she's a H!P stan. You can't do any better than that! :wub:

The single ranked 8 with 9,403 which is pretty good for an indies release.

They're getting a major debut in May.

Not all of them, though. Just 12, 8 of whom were chosen by popular vote. And they go by "Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome". Their single is called Baito Fighter and it's coming out May 8th under Warner Music Japan.

Posted Image

"The press conference started with the introduction of the 12 main members. The 8 members who are chosen by popular vote of their customers are called “weekly ranking” and they are Aikawa Ayano, Moroboshi Azuna, Kawaoto Yumi, Aoshima Karen, Hario Arisa, Hirosawa Mai, Kumamoto Miwa, and Asakura Yuri. The label staff chose Taiga Hana and Hanano Yuuka as the “maker waku”, and AD Nagisa and Suzumi Hinano were chosen by the staff as “bakusute”."

I was nice enough to go find their profiles:
Aikawa Ayano
Moroboshi Azuna
Kawaoto Yumi
Aoshima Karen
Hario Arisa
Hirosawa Mai
Kumamoto Miwa
Asakura Yuri

Taiga Hana
Hanano Yuuka <- youngest (1996)

AD Nagisa <- oldest (1988)
Suzumi Hinano

I get that "bakusute" is "backstage", so I'm guessing that means they will be more back up than leads, but what does "maker waku" mean?

Aw, none of the girls I liked are debuting. At least that fug face foreigner girl isn't in the lineup though 'cause she freaked me out bigtime.

Hey, not bad!

I was expecting some major shit quality for this single, so naturally the fact that this MV looks good makes it seem %1000 better in my eyes.

Everyone looks so pretty!

Not sure if anyone knew but they released their major debut single this past week, and managed to get a daily #1 on the first day that made them very happy.

#3 at 19,463.

They also got a ton of new members but I haven't seen any official photos.

Their indies didn't sell half bad either, if I recall correctly. I don't know what kind of promo they've been doing for anything, though.

Ahhhh I'm really happy for them, and AD Nagisa is a total boss.

And I thought I replied to this but Arisa is gorgeous.
