For me it's just easier to go with the Japanese "anjurumu" pronunciation.  It bastardizes the French but anything less would feel inauthentic LOL.

 

Pink Cres is going to be harder to adapt to, though.  Since I know it's short for "crescendo", I feel like I should pronounce it "pink cresh" but a) that sounds horrible and b) they dropped the "c" at the end.  I guess it's "pink cress" for now although that.... also sounds kind of awful.  I'm also not a fan of names or phrases where the end of the first word and start of the second word are the same sound (pinKUH KUHres).

 

It's a cute name in concept and when written out but I'm not a big fan of how it's going to sound when spoken.  I assume it's going to sound very close to "pink crush" in Japanese too which adds to the confusion.

Yeah, I noticed that they used the college font. As long as they have the licence it's all good.

It's similar, but I don't think the same font. It's way more condensed. The difference is most noticeable in the P. It might be a different commercial font or, more likely, it's a custom job.

It's not, college font is more of a style of fonts. I was saying, as long as they own it, it really doesn't matter. It looks more like a font-pack to me (since they used two versions of it), but I guess it's really all the same.

Nearly every font is. People make them for a living, they have to get their money's worth. There is personal use (like... blogs and stuff) then commercial use (logos), so for pretty much any non-default font (like... courier or something), you're gonna be paying someone. Don't get me wrong, people improperly use fonts all the time, so you will see tons of logos that use fonts without the rights.

I could be wrong tho.

(Unless I read your comment incorrectly, if so, sorry)

There are dozens of websites dedicated to providing copyright-free fonts. 

 

I have no idea if this is a copyrighted font or not, but it probably is, as pro graphic designers are less likely to use free versions that have been altered to avoid copyright infringement.

The girl with the round ear rings is really pretty,

 

Miyabi's jeans outfit needs to go already.

I LOATHE Miya's outfit.

This song is never going to not sound like hot garbage live because they can not perform it at all LOL

 

I am this close to stanning Hikaru just because she's so useless and awkward and I can relate lmao.

Miyabi's fashion has always looked kind of weird to me, but she apparently follows Japanese fashion trends so unless those change, that may not.

Everything from the name to the clothes to the dance to the song, I feel like I've been overwhelmingly disappointed with this group so far. Maybe I just had high expectations lol.

I didn't really have high expectations for them especially after how disappointing Lovendor was, but I was still hoping they would've proven me wrong.

Performing songs at the Buono Budokan

 

I got really excited about that intro for the first song? And then they started singing and it turned into a different song, ha.

 

They also said on twitter they're recording so I think they're going to debut with a full album.

It's so odd to me that they haven't fully debuted yet.  It's also odd that they're clearly supposed to have a "hip" image but their music so far has been REALLY dated even by jpop standards.  This song sounds like something an Avex group would've released in 2008.

I'm really into Summer Wonderland, Warning ~Mirai Keihou~, and Tell me why, dated or not. They're right up my alley as for as dance/techno-y type music goes. The ballads are neither here nor there.

 

But god, they're so underwhelming live. PINK CRES. is a decent listen from the Buono Festa recording, but that's only because of all of that nice post-editing they do the audio. They sounded dead on The Girls Live.

But post-editing can't fix their dancing/performing, but I suppose that can be partially attributed to lackluster choreography. e_e

 

Ultimately, I'm excited for their debut if they continue to make music of a similar style. Hopefully the studio recordings are a large improvement over the live versions.

Here's a Youtube playlist of videos from an Instagram live they did back in January. It's just goofing around at karaoke, but it's kind of cool watching them just having fun here. If you watch nothing else, watch them doing "First Kiss" by Aa!, because it's pretty good.
