    I'd really like to see a =LOVE vs 22/7 rivalry. I think it'll be fun to watch both 48g related seiyuu idol groups compete with each other

    it is still unknown what record label will =LOVE be under, but I'd say it'll be impossible to beat SONY and AkiP tag ^^;
    I think, the main objective for =LOVE is securing a foothold in the market and selling enough to keep them afloat for a long period of time.

    ==========

    =LOVE home page!
    looks fancy))
    the copyright is by Yoyogi Animation academy... I wonder if there will be another site from record label as well.

    I'm regularly watching Yamamoto's SHOWROOM and she's quite a calm and feminine girl <3 She was surprised to read there was someone from Mexico.

    TBH I'm waiting for normal transfers. It's sometimes infuriating to find a really good girl stuck in a crap group. Or even still good, but totally obscure.

    I need some help with names LOL

    [​IMG]

    who is the girl on the left? with the twintails?
    and who are the other 2 girls too while we're at it? XD

    (and for the new photo posted by @fatrain just above,
    does anyone know the names of the girls in order?
    Edit: a photo with the names was posted so nevermind for this)

    and question: this is a "seiyuu" idol group,
    but will they also do singles and promo, like normal idol groups?

    Saito Nagisa -> Takamatsu Hitomi -> Sasaki Maika

    Sasshi plans to make =LOVE a normal idol group with voice acting being one of the side jobs, like acting, modeling, etc., but we don't know yet, how it'll actually be, since Yoani is heavily involved as well.
    you can see ↓ that in addition to ordinary dance and singing lessons, members learn voice acting at Yoani. which, I think, is pretty cool - members will learn real skills, that will be handy even outside the group.

    @fatrain Thanks for the answers! I guess they're debuting soon, I'll check their debut.
    I'm curious about them~ I knew that someday Sasshi would produce an idol group. LOL

    kitaaaaa!!! as expected, =LOVE will have a first performance at TIF! :banana:
    on 8/5, the same day when all other performances related to Sasshi will happen. she'll probably participate in TIF on that day only.
    according to Sasshi, since =LOVE doesn't have enough original songs they'll perform AKB/HKT/Nogizaka songs as well.

    Sasshi's TIF schedule on 8/5:

    Zepp DiverCity
    10:00-10:30 Kono Yubi Tomare
    12:40-13:00 HKT48

    HOT STAGE
    13:55-14:15 =LOVE
    14:20-15:55 Kono Yubi Tomare
    17:45-18:15 STU48
    20:05-20:35 HKT48

    =LOVE will perform after Keyaki... :fear:
