So yush I have been randomly adding new artists over time since I don’t get spazzy enough to add 10 or more different ones but I have added a few before and I’m adding new ones now so here’s the list y’all!!!…Starting with the ones I have reviewed already XD (and a few that don’t have profiles ((excluding that uber big post))).
I can’t believe I never wrote about them on at least one of the artists blowouts I had. Sakura Gakuin is of course an idol group with older and younger set girls. Good thing is is that 2 of the members originally came from Karen Girl’s which meant that they were in it to get popular. Of course at the time I saw them the first time they hadn’t released “Yume ni Mukatte/Hello! IVY” and today they’ve also released their first album after that. Looking forward to what’s next from them.
At the time I didn’t really think about him or HIROKO having a profile considering they were already there as mihimaru GT but I guess I’ll be nice and just put em up. miCKun when I first caught notice had announced that “Kyouka Suigetsu” was his solo debut so I had added him simply because so (and this was before HIROKO’s announcement). Speed up to now and we have one single and one album. Since the members came back, I guess solo works are on hiatus.
HIROKO’s announcement came soon after miyake’s and she came out strong with “GIRLZ UP” and “Saigo no Koi” before releasing “OPEN THE DOOR”. it was alright but by smart decision skills she joined back together with miyake and once again solo activities have stopped for the time being.
Rina or Rina Sakurai back in her indies days kicks off her major label career and while she only has two singles out “Angel” and “Gray Zone”. She’s still pretty new since she’s a model turned singer but I think she has hope if she continues to release music ^_^
It’s weird to see that Aki.P decided to take DIVA which was kind of a small sub-group to just have songs be essentially the B-sides to AKB singles before cutting the members down to four amazing singers to form DiVA with a lower-case i. Now they’ve only released two singles in “Tsuki no Uragawa” and “Cry” but it’s sad since new members will join for the third single sadly…
I guess I forgot to mention Yuu here. She was announced as a solo singer before Sayaka announced her solo career and TBH, I think Yuu is for the long run since she joined UNIVERSAL-J and all that and has one single out with “Kikkake wa YOU!” and a second one coming out soon with “Happy Wrapping ~Sunrise~”. I think she has a bright future since she was one of the better singers originally from Hello! Pro Eggs.
So I’m gonna say that every year that the Animax Anison Grand Prix happens I’m always gonna add the winner and 2011’s winner was Marina Kawano. She has released her debut single, “Morning Arch” at least but she’s been quiet lately…hope she announces a new single soon!
Larval Stage Planning
I did explain who LSP were in my single review of the single but it’s literally I’ve Sound’s three new singers (and possibly to make up for the fact that KOTOKO left for Warner). To me they have voices that kind of cross between Mami Kawada’s and Kaori Utatsuki’s but more towards the cuter side unfortunately. I do hope for more stuff from them because their debut wasn’t too bad!
Kind of like sphere but at the same time not, RO-KYU-BU! I think is just a one-off group because they are a group based on the anime of the same name so I wouldn’t be surprised if “SHOOT!” was their only release but if they get another one out that’ll be pretty awesome too.
Kyarypamyupamyu is Nakata’s newest understudy and she seems to replace MEG with the cute-techno vibes with her first major debut mini, “Moshi Moshi Harajuku”. I like her and her voice is easier on the ears but she needs some edgy songs before I can conclude how I feel towards her right now!
AND NOW THE NEW ONES!
One of three new artists starting out their JPN careers the first caught me off guard like HYNA did earlier this year. Chiaki is relatively an unknown to me like Aimer which gives a mysterious vibe but I will definitely have fun reviewing “Konya wa Chupa♡Riko”. Such a raunchy little video too…damn I think Kuu needs to teach these new gals a lesson XD
Yup it’s another idol group but they also just came out of indies-land with their first single “Tabidachi Transfer” and they released their second one “Nanairo Namida” just recently. They actually sound good and could have the following Momoiro Clover did in their early days too hopefully.
Another brand new artist to debut but with a triple A-side “Rokutosei no Yoru/Kanashimi wa Aurora ni/TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR”. I don’t know much about Aimer but her voice has a YUI-ish sound to it so I guess you might like it if you like piano music too XD
Sakanaction to me is if School Food Punishment stuck to more of an electro underground sound and I like that a lot about Sakanaction because it’s more synthetic and cool to listen to. While their album “DocumentaLy” is coming out next. I’ll review their three singles leading up to it hopefully beforehand.
Oh yeah, I’m definitely adding this K-pop group to the site because they have a JPN discography piling up and it’s definitely sweeeeet. Now they second album is coming soon but they’ve released 3 digital singles to lead up to it and that’s where I’ll start with them is “I Am The Best”.
