    that was a nice preview of the next episode. they're all so excited that they get a nice ride to their first day in camp and ends up they get the devil as their dancing senpai lol

    by the way, remember to subscribe to the =LOVE channel after watching the video. it currently has a very low subscriber total.

    Sorry guys, I am a noob with posting...I've never really posted in the forums until now. I deleted them.

    There are a bunch of photos/links to articles on Twitter if you search there

    Check out their Twitter for photos, articles and updates, and also Modelpress for photos from TIF

    Someone cut her singing parts into a coherent song and added lyrics. She has a nice voice :)

    Looks like they'll have a recording for a music show called "Live B" on 8/16 and a recording for "Kono Yubi To-mare" on 8/17!

    -----
    Hitomin showed off part of choreography of "=LOVE" on SHOWROOM (starting at 18:45 and at 48:00).

    They're looking good already. :) I wasn't expecting such a big group though. Still nice. Those costumes for TIF were super cute! Very cute costume debut indeed. Also waiting for their TIF video. [hehe]

    Translated "=LOVE" lyrics (Japanese lyrics are here)
    Lyrics: Sashihara Rino; Music: Watanabe Takashi (渡辺尚); Arrangement: Furukawa Takahiro (古川貴浩)

    (According to Sasshi, this song can be perceived as a romance song, but it also describes a moment of finding an oshimen idol)



    I want to know you (I want to know you),
    The one I saw in a dream (The one I saw in a dream),
    Even though I don't know your face or your name.

    When I turn around (When I turn around),
    I woke up (I woke up),
    So I stare aimlessly at the ceiling and sigh.

    When I (alone)
    Raised (my head)
    At the intersection of crossroads,
    And the moment our eyes met, I believed in a miracle.

    Surely, it's you, it's you, it's you!
    Even though I've fallen in love several times in the past
    It was all so I could meet you.

    Surely, it's you, it's you, it's you!
    Sorry, I've made a detour
    But we finally met, my ideal,
    You, for sure, =LOVE.

    The two of us seat on a bench (The two of us seat on a bench),
    Black hair is swayed by the wind (Black hair is swayed by the wind),
    Once in a while our eyes meet, it's frustrating.

    The silence (The silence)
    Keeps building up (Keeps building up),
    And only my heartbeat resound.

    Thin (fingers)
    And gorgeous (shoulders) -
    Everything about you is lovely
    You have such impact on me that even blinking is a waste.

    But your, your, your
    Smile makes me speechless,
    My rebellion gets in a way.

    But your, your, your
    Everything is what I want to know,
    I am bewildered, my ideal,
    Sad =LOVE.

    I understand it's laughable,
    That we are destined for each other.
    My ideal, that I gave up on,
    I've searched for you.

    Yet it's you, it's you, it's you!
    The most shocking heart-throb I had,
    A sparkling I start to overflow with.

    Yet it's you, it's you, it's you!
    I want to tell you about that moment
    I saw in a dream, my ideal.
    Everything =LOVE.

    in addition to that ^, TONS of great HQ photos can be found under hashtag #イコラブ

    =======

    summary of fan reports on twitter:

    • usually fans are not allowed to take photos at 4648 events, so fans were happy that Sasshi created an area for photographers. and that's why twitter is flooded with great photos.
    • overall fans were pleased with =LOVE performance and girls.
    • HS event was especially popular - fans liked kami taiyou of all girls, their cuteness and relatively long time they could spend with them.

    some videos from fans

    The pictures are just too awesome! I have already picked favorites. It used to be just Risa but now Anna as well.

    Otoshima Risa, the girl that never gives up.
