PiiiiiiiN, a rock style idol group, announced a couple of hours ago at their live that they are set to disband on 5/5/2017. They had make efforts to get the group popular enough to go to Nippon Budoukan and even held auditions for a new member late last year.
The MV for "Shuttoko Dokkoi" which is on Band Ja Naimon!'s 1st major album released on 3/8/2017, "Kanpeki Shugi na Sekai ni Fukanzen na Ongaku wo♡", was just released yesterday. The song itself is made and directed by Yuyoyuppe, a well known song composer mostly with Vocaloid songs.
On 3/12/2017, it was announced that Hina Aoi would be graduating from DOPING BERRY on 3/30/2017. DOPING BERRY is a group produced by RInahamu (also known as Rinahamu Ichigo) who is known for being in the group CY8ER (ex. BPM15Q) and Strawberry Syndrome. The group just debuted this past summer on 8/10/2016 with their "Yume Kawaii" style seen in many of the groups Rinahamu is involved in.
In Japan it is quite common to be able to talk to your idols 1 on 1 when you go to events like handshake events, cheki events or even just buying merchandise from their merch table. However, as an overseas fan, unless your favorite idols come over, the only way to personally talk to them is by booking that expensive flight to Japan to see them.
But what if you can’t go to Japan? Do you just have to accept your fate of never telling them how much you love them 1 on 1? Do you just type your messages through SNS and hope they’re reading it? Nowadays they have sites and phone apps that allow you to talk to these idols through video chat! In this article, I will introduce 2 sites that I researched for my own sake. (Just in case I’m in desperate need to express my love and get a response)
