Cool for Ebisu Muscats

17 Feb

Woo a new post up and my titles are getting lamer, points if you get what I meant xD; The Ebisu Muscats are a group I’ve wanted to cover on here for a while simply because I find them really interesting. And hey, what’s not interesting about a group made entirely of gravure and AV idols? xD Ebisu Muscats started on a variety show called “Onegai Muscat” in 2008, where gravure and AV idols took part is games and skits. The show aired from April 2008 until March 2009, but was shortly replaced by “Onedari!! Muscat” which started airing in April 2009, and is still going strong. It wasn’t until the 17th of February 2010 when they made their single debut with ‘Banana Mango High School’, which just happens to be a year ago today. Awesome xD

The group is now up to their 4th single, to be released mid-March, and has gone through a lot of member changes. Just looking at the member roster on their wiki page… it’s a long list xD; There’s 28 current members (From 5 different phases or stages, the equivalent of MM’s gens), 9 graduated members, and 25 that are listed as having left the group. That’s 62 members. Wow is putting it lightly xD; From what I can tell, a lot of the original members graduated, while 16 phase 1 to 3 members returned just a month later. One first phase members, KONAN, graduated the group to join AKB48’s more adult sister group, SDN48 (SaturDay Night).

Their first single was full of sexual innuendo and I’m kinda hoping for translations of some of their other songs to see if those are as well, but it’d be hard to top Banana Mango High School (Banana = male. Mango = female. I’m not going to add anymore xD) I’ll be honest, I probably wouldn’t go to their live shows (okay, I would if someone gave me a ticket) or watch/look at their AV/Gravure work, but the variety show sounds interesting and funny (plus a lot less sus xD) so I may just have an entry up on the show if I can find a couple of eps subbed anywhere.

I feel like there’s more I should add here but I’ll update as I find new info~ I still need to go back and update a few of the other groups I already have up as well xD; Full discography, links and a partial member list are below ❤
