It’s a bump.y ride

15 Sep

A new post and a new group to introduce! This time we have a new group called bump.y (brilliant universal miracle power .ドットyouthful) that was formed in 2009 under the SweetPower Agency and are currently signed with Sony Records. Bump.y is sometimes referred to as a group of actresses as many of the members have had acting experience prior to bump.y’s debut, with the most well know being Sakuraba Nanami.  What makes them stand out is the age range of the girls, with the youngest member, Miyatake Matsuri being just 11 years old and the oldest, Matsuyama Mary, is 18 years old, some fans have remarked that this makes them look like they are all sisters- oddly enough, the youngest two girls Matsuri and Mio are actually sisters. Bump.y weren’t always a 5 member group, after the release of their first cover album, Sweet Hits, member Kikuzato Hikari left the group, however it’s not clear in my Googling just why she left, but she has been credited for a few acting roles since on her Japanese wikipedia page.

Together, bump.y have appeared in their own original Net series, as well as a horror movie, both of which can be found on CDJapan. They also have a 2011 Calendar coming out, which is where the picture at the top of this post is from. I can’t find anything else so on them just yet so like last time, members, discography and other links are below the cut. Before you get there, don’t forget to check out the PV for bump.y’s debut single voice!
