I've been watching tons of YouTube videos for this new dance and vocal group named Fairies for the past week. I found out about them in the General Idol News thread that anhh created. He's done more to promote these girls than I'm sure I can do, but I really wanted a thread for Fairies so fans could discuss them. They are on the Vision Factory label, under avex. The bad news is my Japanese sucks, so I can't even figure out their names. I've used Google Translate to figure out some of the names. (Most of the time GT uses the literal translation of their names, so I'm looking at words rather than an actual name.) I listened to the girls as they were introduced in videos, but I guess I still can't clearly pick out the names from everything else spoken. I want to apologize for this lame first post. Thank you LunaLupus for help with the name translations.
Trivia: Fairies won the "Best Newcomer" Award at the 53rd Japan Record Awards in 2011.
