MMJ are an idol group based in Hiroshima.

Posted Image

The girls themselves are big AKB48 fan. They started out as an AKB dance group, called MMJ48 but have since dropped the 48 part and now have their own songs. Whilst they still perform AKB dances they have become idols in their own right.

There are a total of 16 members. Not all members perform at every event due to schedules many girls have jobs, the others are still in school.

Edit:

To be a little more productive, this picture they twitted when the boxes with their second single arrived (that's all the CDs pressed).

Oh, hey, they're pretty good! In fact, the girl with the short hair (Rina?) has a really good voice.

I wish them luck and will certainly keep an eye on them!

Ah, good. I wish some of the other more blatantly ---48-"inspired" groups did this as well.

Anyway, they sound quite decent. Will be keeping an eye on them.

Because they interested me so much, I created a generasia page for them:

http://www.generasia.com/wiki/MMJ

It's quite bare, so if any of you (esp. Charlo) that know more about them could maybe add some information, it would be great. I might create individual member pages and pages for their single, mini-album and Rina's single as well.

Hi. I'm from Hiroshima and a fan of MMJ.
I am the person who have posted the article of MMJ and other related articles for Ja-Wikipedia.
I'll be so glad if anyone would translate it into or make a new one for En-Wikipedia (or any other languages).
Well, I myself can do it, but I don't have enough time for that.

Anyway, I'm very happy that many people outside Japan have been interested in MMJ.
I canl help you to know more about MMJ.
Thank you all. :lol:

Thank you very much!
I can give you many informations. :)
Ja-Wikipedia page is here http://bit.ly/mQBQa6
(The url is shorten by bit.ly because it makes an error somehow)

Also, I administrate a fan web site here http://mmjfan.jp all in Japanese.
I hope someday someone create an English MMJ portal site for foreign fans! :D

Thank you! :)
I'm at my office now and they filter the web so that I can't see YouTube movies. So, I'll check it after I come home.

Misako Ishida is called "Mitako". She is 21 years old and getting to be 22 on Dec.27th.
She learned to sing and dance at Actors School Hiroshima, a famous school for providing professional entertainers.

山下弓乃 Yuno Yamashita is called "Yuni". She is 24 years old and she is a nursery teacher.
She had no experience of singing or dancing before she joined MMJ.

Any more questions are welcome. Feel free for asking! :lol:

Yep, same one Sayashi Riho attended as well.
That certainly works to her benefit.
Idol producers should just set up camp at that school every year when they graduate. :lol:

Yes, guys. Perfume and Riho Sayashi in Morning Musume are from Actors School Hiroshima.
In MMJ, Mitako and Rina are from there. Rina was one of the best student in the history of the school.

About the movie that ShuCreamu poiinted. The members in this are Eeetan, Rina, Natch, Yuichan, Satsuki, Shichan, Mitako, Erika, Ayaka, Jasmine, Tsugumi, Kyao, and Satchan.
Absent members are Mamina, Nao, Yuni.

I have a channel on YouTube and have uploaded many MMJ movies. http://www.youtube.c...er/grayengineer

The youngest is Shichan (Shizuka Miyawaki) and the oldest is Yuichan (Yui Sakoda).

By the way, the word "chan" in the nickname is like "Ed" become "Eddie" or "John" become "Johnny" when added to the name. A trivial. Ha, ha.
