This thread is for discussion pertaining to the various female idol units under Stardust Promotions and all regional Stardust offices, especially the collective now known as Stardust Planet, formerly known as 3B Junior.

 

In 2017, it was announced that the collective of female idol groups under Stardust Promotions would now be referred to as "Stardust Planet," which helps alleviate the confusion between 3BJr. as a collective and 3BJr. as a group.

 

Originally, 3BJr referred to the collective female idol units under Stardust, with the name standing for the division within the agency and the subdivision, with the Jr added to denote the female idols. While a few groups went on to greater prominence with individual record contracts and promotional opportunities, a large number of girls remained as part of a general group of girls shuffled into different units. This has been shuffled a few times, with different units appearing and disbanding, often with several of the same girls as a part of all of them. In 2014, a single was released under the name 3BJr, and it included major units Momoiro Clover Z, Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku, Team Syachihoko, and Tacoyaki Rainbow, as well as many of the girls under the general 3BJr (at the time split into units KAGAJO4S, Team Hotaru Ika, and Team Daioh Ika). This marked the start of the annual "Ore no Fujii" concerts, held in the beginning of each year, that showcase all of the different female units under Section 3. Here, it was announced that anyone who had graduated high school would also graduate from 3BJr. As a result, not all groups continue to participate in "Ore no Fujii," which changes formats every year. 

 

Modern 3BJr refers to only that group of girls not in the more high-profile groups (or, it seems, those not attached to managers who seek to form their own groups as a primary artist under their guidance), and these members are divided into 5 units and one solo member. As the current incarnation, they have released two singles, "Fragile Stars/Yuuki no Silhouette" and "Stardust Fantasia," and one album, "3B Junior First Album," which features tracks from each of the units in addition to tracks from the entirety of 3BJr. Generally, these releases have been only available at live events and have been packaged by the members themselves, as 3BJr has no full record deal and funding seems to go primarily towards training rather than promotional tools. As such, 3BJr gives the impression of being indie or DIY idols, but with the polish of major label idols.

Kuwae Sakina/Asakura Saki from Power-Age = awesome!

Also, you forgot Stardust's really old attempt to make an idol group, Angel Eyes, featuring Kojima Haruna. This was back in 2001 though :P

Ah-ha! I suspected Miley from Minicheer☆Bears had a parent from the USA! In this video, the girls introduce a radio show and Miley speaks with a near-perfect American accent:



I was really surprised when I heard her voice. :lol:

Also, she occasionally writes her Minicheer☆Bears blog in English! In one, she warned everybody not to eat dish detergent. Good advice! :P

Good work, Hitsuji. There are a lot of 3B groups and it can be confusing. Have Minicheer☆Bears ever released a CD or DVD? It seems like they only sell photographs...?

A lot of the groups and artist have cd released that were handed out at live events. :(
Like the Powerage single and the Momo best album cd and all the 3b albums.

Team Syachihoko has 2 singles out already. You can find audio of the singles on youtube.
Here is one

Also they are giving out the a entire bside track used for a pizza ad. :D
Yay for free mp3s. http://www.aokispizz.../page/t-shachi/

Do Section3 have original songs?


They have a few things released. A indie album or two. They are really rare unfortunately and about 200-300 dollars on yahoo japan when they show up. I have a few original songs in my mix http://8tracks.com/m...an/stardust-mix
I'll see what I can dig up as time goes on.

Good work, Hitsuji. There are a lot of 3B groups and it can be confusing. Have Minicheer☆Bears ever released a CD or DVD? It seems like they only sell photographs...?


If I read correctly they were part of a stardust album a year or two back. I'll look for the info. I think the song was by "andre & miniature bears" with "andre" being played by current section3 actress, 飛鳥凛.

Yeah Miley was born in California, I think near LA area. :o
Shes quite funny and cute, I'll clip out some clips of her and post them in a week or two.


Kuwae Sakina/Asakura Saki from Power-Age = awesome!

Also, you forgot Stardust's really old attempt to make an idol group, Angel Eyes, featuring Kojima Haruna. This was back in 2001 though :P

Yeah I did leave a few people out. XD The first post seemed way to long if i listed everything lol
Power-age was awesome! That cat song can get stuck in you head pretty easily.

Thanks for making this thread! I love talents from STARDUST.
The Miniature Bears are so cute!

They sure are

Wow, Syachihoko's outfits are so bright and colorful... I bet Ai Ai was envious...! :lol:

I'm starting to really like Syachihoko... their songs are dynamic like Ebichu's. Same composer?

Minicheer☆Bears have a TV show, I saw a clip... someplace... where they interviewed a baseball player. Can their TV show be downloaded anywhere?
