    First Profile pictures are up. Personal favorite (based on visuals only for now) is Fukuyama Moeka. She's pretty(like all of them) and looks the most interesting to me.:blush: (no Yahagi, but at least these two share the same first name lul)

    i like fukuyama moeka, too. she stood out to me right away. she's cute and she sounds a bit like zukky.
    "ichihara ayumi" looks like a different person to me in the individual photo vs group photo and video. i can see ichioka now!

    After watching the presentation, my Top3 so far are Oshida Mitsuki, Fukuyama Moeka & Yamada Momoka.
    A little yes, tho I think Yamauchis voice is a bit more distinctive, stronger than Fukuyamas

    And please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks Ichihara Ayumi resembles HKTs Unjo Hirona visually (video at 04:22) :^^;:

    First Showroom live from today with Yamamoto Anna

    Nope. As you can read in the url it's Equal Love's. It is a special site :fear: (correct if I'm wrong tho)

    So, the former STU48 will be JOY's leader? She is the oldest among them

    I'm so happy Yuuka managed to pass! She has been my main pick since day one. She's so amazing and talented and so good at communicating with fans. I believe she was born to be an idol haha.

    I don't know much about other girls but they all seem promising. I especially like Aoi, she was so adorable on today's Showroom stream :cute:

    I guess I wasn't paying attention because I wasn't expecting a new group lol

    I like quite a few of the girls so far. There's not yet an obvious fave like there was for me with the previous groups. After watching the Showroom live, I have a soft spot for Onishi Aoi because she seemed so shy. I also like twintails, so I'm keeping an eye on Konoa.

    Also, I didn't know there was a "nearly equal" symbol until now... :^^;:

    both, Yamamoto Anna & Kanisawa Moeko are great as MC. So I don't think she will choosen as leader

    As always with Sasshi's groups, there is the token twintail girl one. Some interesting looks here, and liking the name and colour of the group. Can't wait for their first song. I guess the former STU will find life far more interesting in here.

    What would be the group nickname? Like how =love is ikorabu or =\=me noimi? Maybe nikojoy? It would play nicely, I think. Niko can mean smile too.

    A lot of Japanese fans are calling them Niajoy (ニアジョイ) already

    "# ニアジョイ" is in their official twitter account's bio and there are already several official tweets (by group's account and members themselves) with this version of the name of the group. So yeah, it's official :)
