Rocking Out! - Aoyama Saint Hachamecha High School - Idol Spotlight

Update 1-26-2016: I originally released this article on August 31st, 2014. It was one of the first three I made and it showed. After about a year and a half, it is time to redo this article in my styling. I am including updated information and also actual member pictures. Aoyama Saint Hachamecha High School has got to be one of my favorite indie idols that I have enjoyed listening to in the past year or so. Their music is so upbeat and energetic that it will cause you to have a dance contest. So let us get into it. A little backstory behind this group. The group participated in the show Shibuara Nico Sei Idol Collection in early 2012 where they had to get 1000 copies of their single Hachamecha School Days pre-ordered in order to make their debut. The groups currently hosts a segment on Uta Musume on TV Saitama and has since 2013. Their fourth single was released back in March called, Starting Over, which was the opening song for the TV show Rank Oukoku, which ai

48 Group Oshimen Introduction - NMB48 Yagura Fuuko

I don't mind it but it can be a little hectic from time to time. I have been a fan of the 48 groups for about two years now, give or take a couple of months. I had my AKB/SKE kami-oshi Matsui Rena. Then she graduated. After graduation I changed it to just my AKB kami-oshi, which is Okada Nana. As for HKT, I haven't decided yet but that will soon change. For SKEs' sake in this situation, I really don't have one. That would leave in terms of main 48 sister groups, NMB48. I rarely knew of NMB except through Miyuki Watanabe and Yamamoto Sayaka. I liked them but I never really chose a favorite until recently. I saw this video in a Facebook group I am joined in and I had to find out who this member was. 雪にダイブッ⛄️ #憧れのダイブッ #この後びしょびしょ #さ〜む〜い Posted by Yagura Fuuko - 矢倉楓子 NMB48 on Friday, Novembe

Weekly Idol Recap - Week Of January 16th and January 22nd, 2016

Welcome back to your now weekly dose of idol news, I decided to do two weeks this week in order to technically catch y'all up on all the recent news that you may or may not have heard. So, let's begin. Court Ruling (Idol Relationship) In recent news, like really recent as of Monday, January 21st, District Judge Katsuya Hara dismissed a court case involving a idol management company who sued one of their former talent for having a relationship while being in the idol group. A little backstory on this: In about 2012, this young woman around the age of my guess 20-21 entered into a contract with the manager that stated that if they had a relationship with a fan while being in the group, they would be sued for damages. In my opinion, I would have agreed and stayed away from relationships. The following year in December 2013, this idol, who has yet to be named, started to have a relationship with a male fan. Almost, six months later she decided to leave the group and

Weekly Idol Recap! - Week Of January 9th, 2016

Welcome to the first ever Weekly Idol Recap where I will discuss any news that had occurred over the past week in idol news, Well some good news to start this off before it takes a bad turn. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016!!! It is the Year Of The Monkey and we should all be going bananas this year. Sorry, bad pun! Anyways, here is your idol news! Fukagawa Mai (Nogizaka46) Graduation Announcement! Photo Courtesy: Nogizaka 46 Official Profile Page At the time of this release it would be about a week (January 7th) when she announced her graduation. I found out the news through one of the Facebook groups I am in and it really hit me hard. Mai Mai has been one of my oshi for quite some time. Not only is she pretty but she can sing and also play the guitar. I will truly miss her smile and some of her shy qualities. She also was born in the same year I was, so most of the young ladies her age are leaving which is becoming depressing to a point. She almost became my kami-o
