    Thanks for this Jasey. I really like the first single! And the look is great. I'm just bummed that I missed their appearance in Akihabara while I was in town :cry: I'll be watching this group!

    They aren't a bad group and although i've only listened to their second single..its not bad...its really catchy and the PV is not too bad...their costumes aren't bad looking either hehe [notme]

    I love their first single, especially the traditional theme, but the second single seems to be headed in a more mainstream pop direction.

    It's still pretty good though. Good enough that I'll probably buy both.

    They seem to be very athletic for an idol group. The line dance they did during the musical intermission of Mirai he susume was actually a line dance.

    PV was a bit boring but probably due to budget constraints rather than anything else.

    Damn thats alot of member shuffling. They're worse than AK48 and H!P combined.

    ^They do look like an athletic group and that's my favourite part of the video, although it is a pretty basic bland video the scenes in their costumes are pretty good to watch ;) .

    I have yet to listen to their first single so i'll have to do that tonight...but overall i'll probs keep up with this group! since they aren't a bad looking bunch hehe [notme]

    I went to see their show this weekend at Akihabara UDX, right across the street from the AKB48 Theater. They are totally adorable in person! So tiny, so young, but so cute! You can tell they are still pretty new at this idol stuff. So they still need a lot of polish. The lip-synching was sort of off, and they giggle a lot. But they dance full of energy, and you can tell they are totally excited to be idols!

    Plus, tons of cool perks at the event. You can get two shots, autographed pics, play Janken with them. Oh, and the staff is really nice. In fact, most of them spoke fluent English! Anyway, I wrote about it in my blog, where I also posted a few pics...

    ^Yay for new(-er) idol groups! There isn't enough media out there for me to really fanboy Momoiro, but it's little things like this that make me happy for them.

    I just read Cristafari's blog post about them, and they seem really cute :) I like the sound of their singles too, thanks for the info! I hope they stick around for a few years and don't just disappear after their major debut. They reminded me of that Melody Bee group that vanished :-( Anyway I'll be keeping an eye on them for sure.

    btw in the Momoiro Punch PV, why do their microphones magically turn into bananas for 5 seconds at 3.44? :lol:

    Their new single (Ikuze! Kaitou Shojo) is scheduled for 2010-05-05. 7 versions are reported (the basic one + one for each member, looks like the cover pic will be the only difference).

    I love it!!! This was one of the songs they performed when I saw them last month, and I was wondering if it was the new single. Glad it is, and now I am happy I bought 5 copies :p

    The PV/song is fantastic! I hope they release more with the whole sentai feel. That second half of the PV was adorable.

    Well, the MV is technically a bit better than the previous two. I don't find the song as catchy as the earlier singles, though.

    The main outfits are bleh :p but the choice of the additional ones (maid-Shiori, policewoman-Momoka etc.) makes up for it to a certain extent. I love how they're so hyper in their MVs, and this vid no exception. And most importantly, A~rin <3 always so adorable!
