A Super Bump (.y)

22 Nov

Not exactly -new- news, but I can’t do all that for Passpo’s album and ignore SUPER☆GiRLS and Bump.y!

The PV for bump.y’s latest single, Futari no Hoshi ~Hanareteite mo~ is now out and the single is set to be released on the 24th of November, so this Wednesday! The group still has a ‘family’ feeling to it and you can really see it in the dance too, at one point they’re all holding hands. It’s all the warm fuzzy stuff xD I really like Sara’s voice in this too, her solo at 1:10 is love ❤ Half the time she looks like she’d rather not be there, someone forgot to tell she had to smile xD

SUPER☆GiRLS new album is titled Chouzetsu Shoujo (meaning “Transcendent Girl”) and is set to come out on the 22nd of December. Their previously released tracks make an appearance on the album but they’re listed as ‘transcendental versions’. “Transcendent Girl” may give a clue to what ‘Transcendental Version’ means, it’s likely it just means it will be an album version, but there’s no knowing for sure until it’s out. So far, ‘Miracle ga Tommanai!’ has a PV that was shown first on SG’s Ustream but it’s now up on the avex Youtube channel.What else? Right, it’s being released in 3 different versions A, B and C. A is a special box that comes with the CD+DVD and extras (¥6500), B is the CD+DVD (¥3800) and C is just the CD (¥2500), all come with a photo of one of the girls. Some previews can be heard on their website – http://supergirls.jp/news/20101002.html

It’s a really adorable, practically the definition of an idol PV xD; SPARKLES? CUTE GIRLS? POMPOMS? ENGRISH? Check. It’s a fun song, but vocals aren’t their strong point unfortunately. Watching them grow and improve is half the fun of idol fandom as well as cheering on your favourite for being flawless and awesome. KAEPYON! I’m hoping there’s some good songs on the rest of the album, preferably with some small groups going on, but SG have been pretty good when it comes to giving all the members time to shine, which is always a good thing! Track list for the CD is below, it looks like there’s two different DVDs with A and B so I’ll work on getting a track list for those up later~

Finally we have one more lot of awesome news, a new single for Fudanjuku has been announced titled ‘Onaji Jidai ni Umareta Wakamonotachi‘ ! The single will also feature a 2010 version of Kizuna, from the album of the same name. There will be a total of 8 different versions, one for each of the members with CD/DVD and a regular version. I haven’t posted about Fudanjuku yet, but that’s partly because of this amazing Pimp Post, but I honestly can’t wait to post about them here ❤

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUPER☆GiRLS!

The titles just keep getting lamer, don’t they? xD SUPER☆GiRLS are a new group under avex that was formed from the “Avex Idol Auditions 2010” with a staggering 7000 girls auditioning between the ages of 12 and 21. That amount was cut down to 24 potential candidates and 12 of which were chosen to make the group. In the final stage of auditions, the 24 girls where shuffled into three smaller groups that performed the three debut songs of the group to a panel of judges, you can see a preview of that here. The three songs are titled “Nijiro Star,” “Kizuna Days,” and “Be with you.” They also performed these songs as the opening to the Tokyo Idol Festival:

Nijiro Star and member introductions

Kizuna Days and Be With You

I don’t think all the girls get a solo over the two songs, but you do get a chance to get an idea of at least half of their voices, and their overall sound. They still sound a little raw, but I’m really looking forward to hearing the studio versions. I can’t find a release date for a CD single, but the three songs are available on the Japanese iTunes store. The final round of auditions took place on Sunday June 13th,  with the girls debuting at Avex a-nation 2010 which was on the 7th of August.

What makes my job a little easier is that there is already an English fansite for the girls up by the name of superSTYLE! So if you are interested in SUPER☆GiRLS, definitely bookmark that link as it’ll probably be updated more on what they do than what you’ll get here xD; Also, since superSTYLE already has translated profiles and pictures, I won’t post them here myself, and since they don’t have a discography to post I’m left with just links and maybe a couple of pics under the cut this time xD; I have high hopes for these girls- I even already have a possible favourite, Kaepyon! Not that it’s because she reminds me of Maimi. Not at all.
