BAKUMON (ばくもん) is a group with the average age of 18 years old.
According to the official website, I'm going to paraphrase, when you hear the groups' rhythmic music, it creates a whirlwind of excitement that will make your body move without thinking.
They were unveiled on July 23rd, 2020.
The group belongs to both CMajor Works and FreeK-Laboratory. Both of those agencies have a variety of talent under their name.
The group originally debuted with six members but shortly after quickly grew to eight. A few members have come and gone in recent months but now the group will be going strong with 10 members. See update below.
Update: On December 20th, 2021, it was announced that the current system of Bakumon would end and a new one would begin on January 2nd, 2022. Announcement
Two members Komidori China (小緑ちな) and Aizawa Riri (藍沢りり) would be working on different areas. China will be focusing on personal activities and Riri will join a new group named Yorutumeriku (夜とメルク)
The members that will join the group when the new system starts, will be four members of the LUNCH KIDS, Yukishiro Ririka (雪白 りりか), Ibuki Rei (芽樹 れい), Niina Riko (新名 りこ) and Minase Nodoka (水瀬 のどか).
They have released one digital single and also a physical single paired with their agencies main single.
I will refer to the group as BAKUMON throughout to make it more simple.
As mentioned above, BAKUMON consists of 10 members, each of them with unique personalities.
Member Mizuki has a YouTube where she was doing ASMR, if you're into that kind of thing.
Yuuki has also her own YouTube channel where she posts dance covers and also some other cute things. You might see some members make an appearance every now and again. She is an all around talent. I highly suggest checking it out.
Nayu makes the costumes for the group. She also makes her own clothes from time to time.
I will also list the members SNS profiles for you to follow them. To be honest, I hope you do. The members would like it...
Almost every members' Only Five sells out in an instant. You have to be really lucky.
BAKUMON has released two digital singles at this current time. They also collaborated on their agencies single, We are FreeK, You can stream on your favorite music platforms such as Apple Music or Spotify (I use those two the most).
1st Digital Single - BAKUMON FIELD DAYS - Released December 16th, 2020
Released April 17th, 2022
Music Video / Video Information
In this section, I want to introduce a few of their videos. To be honest, at the time of this writing, Bakumon only has one official music video. They also appeared in the MV for "We are FreeK" for a quick few seconds. I will share that screenshot and time stamp. On May 1st, 2022, they released the LIVE Version of their song, ITADAKI. These are my opinions and also all rights go to the corresponding agencies.
The first video I want to showcase is the group's music video from their first digital single, BAKUMON FIELD DAYS. The title of the song is Urya Urya Bakumon Daiundousai (Urya Urya Bakumon Grand Festival).
While I was doing research for this article, I questioned whether or not I had known this group before 2021. According to YouTube, I learned of the group back in August 2020. Apparently, I watched this particular video of the original members dancing separately to their song, エヴィバディ！バクモン祭! To be honest, I don't remember watching this video because it was over a year ago but I decided to go back and re-watch it while researching and it jogged my memory. Here is that video. It has commentary by former member Arisu and current member Mizuki.
