A New Subgroup? Shugo Chara AGAIN?!

When did H!P become so obsessed with anime?

Koharu and her little Egg minions all star in the anime Kirarin Revolution, as well as provide the theme songs, and often cosplay as their respective characters. Tsuji originally voiced the main character of... whatever anime that was, and sang the theme song, only to be replaced by Gaki and HER Egg minions. Tanaka Reina is voicing the main character in an anime, and I think I remember someone saying that Kame got her own series, too. Berryz and c-ute have appeared in several anime, and even Yossie appeared as herself in Kirarin. Mini Moni had their own Hamtaro versions, too. Even groups like Melon Kinenbi and Tanpopo had songs appear as endings to anime.

And, of course, we all know Buono!.

Tsunku's daughter must really like Shugo Chara or something, because the amount of effort he puts into it is ridiculous. He formed Buono! out of three H!P Kids to sing the theme songs. And now that he's realized how popular they are, they're starting to break away and do their own thing.

He formed Shugo Chara! Egg to cosplay as the main character's little soul-chara-whatever they're called that appear in the anime. They were cute, but not very successful.

And now! A new Shugo Chara unit!

This time it's another group of four, all cosplaying as the school guardians, I think they're called? (I only watched the first few episodes a while back)

Anywho, it will consist of Kumai Yurina, Sugaya Risako, Mitsui Aika, and Nakajima Saki.

All-star team right there...!

Yurina and Aika have seen surprisingly little action when it comes to subgroups. None, actually, if you don't count concerts. Risako is the Queen of Berryz, so she doesn't count. And Saki was in Athena and the Robikerotts... Or however you spell it. xD

I'm looking forward to it. Personally, I don't think Risako suits such a cute anime, but still. Yuri and Mittsi and Saki-who-I-don't-really-care-about-but-am-starting-to-warm-up-to?


I'm looking forward to it. =3 I can never get enough of 5'11" tall idols. Nope.
