Sakura Gakuin (さくら学院) are an idol group under the Amuse agency whose music and activities are based on the Japanese school system. Just like in Japanese schools, the members of Sakura Gakuin wear a special uniform. The Japanese school year ends at the end of March, and this is when Sakura Gakuin release their albums. Singles are released at various times throughout the year. Also just like Japanese schools, Sakura Gakuin have “school clubs” with a variety of themes. When a member of Sakura Gakuin graduates from ninth grade in real life, she also graduates from the group.

 

History:

 

Sakura Gakuin was formed in April 2010 with eight members, with Muto Ayami as the Student Council President (i.e., the leader).

Mizuno Yui and Kikuchi Moa joined in July 2010, completing the lineup which debuted at TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2010 (August 7 and 8, 2010).

 

 

In July 2011, Taguchi Hana and Isono Rinon joined giving Sakura Gakuin twelve members.

At the end of the Japanese school year in March 2012, the three eldest members, Muto Ayami, Miyoshi Ayaka and Matsui Airi, graduated.

 

 

In May 2012, Notsu Yunano, Sugimoto Mariri, and Ooga Saki transferred in, making the lineup twelve members again, and Nakamoto Suzuka became the new Student Council President.

At the end of March 2013, Nakamoto Suzuka graduated, as expected, but Sugimoto Mariri also graduated in order to focus on her modeling career.

 

 

In May 2013, Shirai Saki and Yamaide Aiko transferred in, and Horiuchi Marina became the third Student Council President.

At the end of March 2014 Horiuchi Marina, Iida Raura, Sugisaki Nene and Sato Hinata graduated.

 

 

In May 2014 Kurashima Sara and Okada Megumi transferred in, and Kikuchi Moa became the fourth Student Council President.

At the end of March 2015 Kikuchi Moa, Mizuno Yui, Taguchi Hana, and Notsu Yunano graduated.

 

 

In May 2015 Kurosawa Mirena, Okazaki Momoko, Aso Maaya, Hidaka Marin, Fujihira Kano, and Yoshida Soyoka transferred in, and Isono Rinon became the fifth Student Council President.

At the end of March 2016 Isono Rinon, Shirai Saki and Ooga Saki graduated.

 

 

In May 2016 Shintani Yuzumi, Aritomo Tsugumi and Mori Momoe transferred in, and Kurashima Sara became the sixth Student Council President.

At the end of March 2017 Kurashima Sara and Kurosawa Mirena graduated.

 

 

In May 2017 Tanaka Miku and Yagi Miki transferred in, and Yamaide Aiko became the seventh Student Council President.

At the end of March 2018 Yamaide Aiko, Okada Megumi and Okazaki Momoko graduated.

 

 

In May 2018 Shiratori Sana, Nonaka Kokona and Nozaki Yume transferred in, and Shintani Yuzumi became the 8th Student Council President.

I was watching the festival too and this group is great, I like it a lot. But since is really new we don't have nothing to talk about XD. But is interesting to know that 2 of this girls were from another group, I didn't know that. And I remember they were to release their single but I don't know if they do it yet.

I like Airi!! When I saw her in the festival she remaind me Kumai-chan a little, is really cute. I was surprised when I kwnew that she is a model...

Too bad that the video doesn't work :(

Ayami and Suzuka were ex-karen girls

From what I remember, they're using a "student council system", so Ayami instead of being the leader is the "president" ^^;

Suzuka along other girls perf Renai Rider!! :P (she's the one with the light blue scarf)


here a good blog for people who want to know more about this girls: http://sushipafu.blogspot.com/

@Ebii: I didn't even bother to play the video to see if the link worked. Sorry! :P By the way, Sakura Gakuin means "Cherry Blossom Academy". I got most of my info from Jpop Stop. http://wiki.jpopstop...i/Sakura_Gakuin

@Hikazumi: I just watched both videos. In the second one, by Amulet I think, I noticed Suzuka's shoulder. Do I ask? :P

Here's a YouTube link to their TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL performance which isn't blocked.
I'm not sure why I was able to watch the video I posted in my first post, and then it got suddenly blocked. That was quick! :lol:

Edit: This video no longer works! Someone's working against me by removing these videos.... :GGRR:

fer the blog they post scans of hand written stuff instead of actually typing, i found that very smart since is something different and also very cute because there is no way they are going to post a plain letter without adding the cute stuff like chibis and even stickers XD

also whoa they are almost at the same age but two of them are like towers compared to the rest...


ps: saw the renai rider video and wonder if h!p owns anything from that

I found that very smart too, is a good way to keep in touch with their fans and also show them their cuteness.

@Cardcaptor, don't worry! You are doing a great job, I didn't know anything of this XD! I like the style of the group, I think is interesting this thing of the academy council and the previews are good too, thanks for the links :good:

Here's a couple YouTube videos you might be interested in. Both are LQ, but are worth watching if you are a fan.

"Yume Ni Mukatte" live performance, fades away before it's done!


An interview with Ayaka, Yui and Suzuka, in "fullscreen / old TV screen size". I mention this only because it was originally on Ustream in widescreen in HQ. Of course, you had to put up with the constant pop-up ads, plus I've never had any luck in downloading anything from Ustream.



There's also a video I haven't found a YouTube link yet for a Sakura Gakuin baton twirlers group called Twinklestars. Maybe Stellosphere can help me out? :D

On the 28th, Sakura Gakuin held their first solo event “Sakura Gakuin Festival ☆ 2010”.

This event preceded their CD debut which will be on December 8th. Tickets to their 2 performances were sold out in the same day. Many excited fans rushed to the venue.

At the event, they started with their lively song “School days”. They continued with “Hello! IVY”, which was filled with energy and caused the enthusiasm in the venue to heat up at once.

During the middle of the event the girls split into their units, which focus on club activities like the Baton Club, Cooking Club and Go-Home Club (People who don’t do clubs and go home after school). Each girl showed their individuality through their performances. Lastly, the members sang and danced to their song, “Yume ni Mukatte”. The audience’s energy reached it’s peak.

Furthermore, after Sakura Gakuin releases their CD they will hold a release commemoration event. They plan to hold an in-store live at ishimaru soft and Tower Records Shibuya.

December 11, 2010 (Saturday) Tokyo’s ishimaru soft
1st performance START 12:30/ 2nd performance START 14:30

December 14, 2010 (Tuesday) Tokyo’s Tower Records Shibuya
B1 STAGE ONE – START 19:00

Unlike many of you, I am new to both Karen Girl's and Sakura Gakuin. I just got into them this month. After watching the TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2010 I typed a search to see if there was a thread for Sakura Gakuin. There wasn't, but they were mentioned in the Karen Girl's thread. I checked it out and that's where I got the links to their websites that I put in my first post. Then I went to Jpop Stop for all the info I needed on the girls, wrote it down on paper, then came back here and created this thread. I'm "Mr. Instant Fan". The last time something like this happened to me, it was 18 months ago and I heard a group called Morning Musume. Then I got hooked on C-ute. I found out they were both from the same music label, and that brought me to this website! :) I'm glad I created a thread for all of you Karen Girl's and Sakura Gakuin fans to enjoy!

I mentioned yesterday in post #12 that members of Sakura Gakuin were in a baton twirling group called Twinklestars. Well, there's a website that you can watch a two minute video of them, but it's in a medium-sized window and Japanese text scrolls across all the time. Here's the link: http://www.nicovideo...tch/1289218579. I'll include a thumbnail of the group too. Okay, it turns out that you need to select "Architecture Studio Sakura #4" since there can't be any direct linking! Sorry!

I just got an e-mail from CD Japan saying my CD was shipped! :w00t: (I ordered four CD singles, which cost a lot with all the shipping.) That's great, but it's two days before the official release! :)

In other news, I found out that when you click the button next to the sound level on the Nico Nico Dougo Channel, you can turn off the Japanese text. A "x" will appear to show you don't want the text. I still haven't figured out how to watch the videos fullscreen. If you watch the 21 minute video where the girls play "telephone", impressionable young people should be warned that at the end, 12-year-old Nene shows off an impressive, yet dangerous, talent. It should come with a warning that says DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS! :noo: I'm serious about this one!

No, but I can only play the videos at the size of the window. I can't blow it up to the size of my computer screen. Just press the button next to the volume to turn off the Japanese text. I'm not 100% sure how that website works; still experimenting myself! :lol:

Okay, I tried to register and it keeps resetting everything. I tried twice. Which black button am I supposed to press to send my info? Both buttons reset what I type! The instructions aren't very clear. :bad:

Okay, last night I was using Google Chrome to try to register. Today I tried Internet Explorer, and that worked better. I used Google Translate to tranlate each page I was on when registering, which helped with filling out each line. I am currently waiting for that 21 minute video to load a bit so I can watch it without stopping every few minutes. It can play a bit larger than I saw it before, but it's a bit blurry. Too bad it's not DVD quality.
