Dancing Dolls - Osaka Dance Cover...ers
Originating from the Osaka is new dance and vocal unit, Dancing Dolls.
With an average age of 16, these 5 childhood friends have uploaded dance cover videos to sites like Niconico Douga and Youtube. Their videos have become very popular, gathering thousands of views. Not only that, but their first one-man live held in Osaka Americamura gathered 300 people, making it a big success! As a group, so far, they've based their activities in Osakajou Park (Or "Shiroten"), garnering audiences of 500 people each performance with increasing fans.
Their debut single, which will be released on September 12, is to be a double A-side. Junhai Darling, one of the A-sides and a cover of a popular ORANGE RANGE song "Junhai Honey", is already released digitally through Chaku-Uta.

Dancing always gets me interested in a group and this is no exception! Watching their videos, their choreography is united, filled with energy, smiles, and at times, is more advanced than other idol units (Though I'm not sure if they're idols, since no sites mention it). Even major, who usually get better choreography than indie groups, I find. MISAKI, the oldest member, choreographs their dances, which further impresses me about their dances. With their singing, I also think that it's better than other groups, and I like that they harmonize together, which is always nice to hear since idol groups usually sing in unison. (Sorry for all the idol comparisons ^.^;) As for their "image", I guess you could say, I find it adorable how they're all childhood friends and so already have chemistry with each other. I also think it's cool how twins were put into the group. I think there were twins in SDN48 (Not sure, though, since I've never really followed them), but other than that, I don't know of any CURRENT examples of twins working together in music, though I'm probably wrong. Their debut was announced recently, but they've been active for about half a year, so I wish that I would've discovered them earlier. But, better late than never, and I can't wait to see what they can bring as I follow them from now on!
