    I need music recommendations. Criteria:

    -Idol group
    -Not AKB, H!P, Perfume, or Johnny's
    -Closer to those random Akihabara idol groups
    -Media pretty accessible on the internet (music, videos, pictures, site, fansite, etc.)

    I just watched the C-Zone performance from AX on YouTube, and now I want to branch out to small idol groups

    I don't think there are many lesser known idols that have much easily accessible media, but maybe try:

    Karen Girls (可憐Girl's)
    JK21
    9nine
    Momoiro Clover (ももいろクローバー)
    Chu!☆Lips
    Creamy Parfait (クリィミー・パフェ)
    Feam

    I need help!!!!!

    I'm looking for a song, that unfortunately I don't know if its "k"pop or "j"pop....

    =(

    Don't know where to post... I hope it goes well here...

    The only thing I can remember of the song is that it was a "boy band" (probably 4 members... not sure), and that in the video they were dancing at an airport.
    probably at the runway... don't know...

    Help? :(

    PS: Just notice this thread is ONE year old... :(

    Tonight I was shopping in HMV in Ikebukuro in Tokyo when I thought I could hear an idol group performing live? I went over to investigate expecting an underground group but it was anything but underground - it was Iketeru Hearts, the sister group of Afilia Saga! I follow the group because one of the members, Arata Yuyu, is learning English so I support her by following her in Twitter where she sometimes tweets in English.

    Yuyu was on stage along with Ochi Karin who is IMO one of the cutest idols in JPop and I also support both girls in the CHEERZ app.

    The group performed 7 songs in a 40-minute set. It was my first ever experience watching an idol group close-up in Japan, my only other non-48G idol experiences have been at Hyper Japan in London.

    Afterwards there was a 2-shot session but my understanding was that to take part you had to preorder the group's new concert DVD so that would have meant having an address in Japan. However in any case the show tonight was a huge unexpected bonus for my stay in Japan!

    Koeda Sae and Yamasaki Mai from Nippon Sailor Joshidan came to Boston, MA for the Boston Japan Festival. I wasn't aware that there was going to be an idol performance. I just happened to be around the stage area getting food.

    Apparently they're a theater-based idol group in Hokkaido currently with eight members across four generations. They perform at the Sakura Theater 5/7 days of the week. The two girls who performed were both really cute, and Sae especially had a very nice voice. Here's a picture from their Facebook page of Mai (#47) and Sae (#8):

    I was only able to buy two of their singles (Kimi wa Yo and Shouri no Ame) at the festival itself, and it seems like their CDs can only be purchased at events/performances or at Tower Records according to their Wikipedia page.

    Former FAKY member (and center) Sawai Anna is currently appearing on BBC TV here in the UK as a member of the cast of a drama series called 'Giri/Haji' ('Duty/Shame') about a Japanese detective who travels to London in search of his brother who has fled after having been involved in a Yakuza killing. Anna plays the part of a Yakuza family member called Fukuhara Eiko.
