One Of A Kind Idols In Omiya - Omiya I☆DOLL (大宮アイドール) and I☆DOLL BRAVE - New Age Idols Spotlight
If you had told me a year ago, that I would meet a couple members of this group, and they would become a mainstay in my life, I might have been surprised.
Little did I know that this smaller group would play a much bigger part in shaping who I have become as a idol fan and person since that day.
That group is Omiya I☆DOLL (大宮アイドル) and their research student group I☆DOLL BRAVE.
Some of you may not have heard about this group (especially in English speaking countries) or maybe not even in Japan itself.
Where is Omiya? You may ask. Omiya is in Saitama Prefecture, which is northwest of Tokyo. I can compare it to my hometown when it comes to explaining where I am from.
Let me introduce both of these great groups to you.
As I mentioned, this group is a locally based in Omiya, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.
They were formed in November 2014.
Not only are the members idols but they also work part-time at a café with the same name.
They do performances daily in their café but the members may vary depending on the day.
There are currently five members in Omiya I☆DOLL and six members in I☆DOLL BRAVE.
As of October 2020, the group(s) has released a total of one physical single, way back in 2015. They have not released any digital music either. In order to hear them, you must go to their café or happen to see them at a performance in a live venue.
In this section, I will share some of the members information and maybe a quick fun fact. I will also include their SNS for you to follow them on social media if you'd like. They would highly appreciate it.
They have a grocery list of former members, 10 to be exact, but I will only list one that has been elusive during my research.
The only remaining members of the 1st Generation are Rina and Aya.
Each member has a color assigned to them as well, which is always great to have.
Also each member not only does Showroom on the official group stream, they each have their own personal Showroom rooms. Follow them on there and get to know the members as well.
The group members use the 1:1 video chat app Talkport as well. Make sure you sign up for their slots early to get the opportunity to speak to them.
