When Fantasea Meets Reality - Atlantis Castle - New Age Idols Group Preview




If you got the very bad title pun, thank you! I thought of it myself.

Fail.

Anyways, I would like to introduce you to a new and upcoming, very underrated idol group that goes by the name Atlantis Castle.

The motto of the group is that the "Brilliance Aura of Legend" is said to be somewhere in the world and searchers have never found this "glowing aura". Now these adventures have set forth on a mission to find it.

This group is also know as a RPG idol group.

If you don't know what a RPG is, let me explain.

A RPG or role-playing game is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting.

Each of them portray a certain character and I will introduce the members and their characters below. 

On their website they showcase statistics but it is kind of difficult to explain. I do know the categories are: HP (Hit Points), MP (Magic Points), ATK (Attack Points), Defense and Quickness.

Sadly, I had to research what some of those meant.

Also, every 3 months, the parties will change according to the standings, so the next one will be on March 15th.

I will rearrange when it happens to update the group.

What I do know is that they began conducting activities, according to their Twitter on July 26th, 2015 by handing out fliers at Tokyo Idol Festival 2015.

They officially opened their Ameblo blog on September 14th, 2015.


Member Information

Over the course of their short history as a group, three members have withdrawn; Mizuki in late 2015, Kotone in late 2015 and Irene in January 2016.

They gained a new member just recently Nekota, and her information got placed on their website after the latest standings.

There are nine members and they are part of two teams: Team Sky and Team Dungeon. I will also separate them according to teams as well.

Also, they have a introduction video they put up on YouTube, so I will place those here as well for you to enjoy.

They do not showcase their age or even their birthday, so it is up to you, the viewer, to determine them for yourself.

Each of the members are specifically colored as well.

Overall Group Review (So Far)

I found out about this group through Showroom-Live. They were having a chat session and I went to their website to learn more about the group and started to enjoy the group.

I went to their YouTube channel and watched all the videos so I could get caught up and liked them even more.

I have even showed their videos to some of my co-workers and they seem to enjoy them as well.

They are having their first one-man live on May 7th, 2016 at the Shibuya Star Lounge. There is no doubt in my mind that I will attend that event and cheer them on.

I will do a review of the event afterwards on here, so make sure to look out for that.

I will surely buy their first single when it releases and share it with people around me.

I really hope you enjoy and share this group and will support them with all your might.
