Yep, they are primarily a theater group, singles aren't exactly their main focus. Actually, the majority of this single's sales will be from their theater. When you take a cheki with one of the members, you also preorder copies of the CD. So say you got a 2000 yen cheki, you'd also be getting something like 4 copies of the single. According to some stuff the girls have been tweeting about it, they're already at 59,000 copies sold! Unfortunately, oricon apparently doesn't count purchases made in their theater, so the number we'll be seeing there on the release date may not actually reflect the amount sold.

 

Here's their latest theater ranking video. To those that don't know, every time you go to the theater you receive a chip that you use to vote on your favorite member by putting it in her box. They make a video of the rankings every week. This one is special because they're wearing costumes! They had some sort of a costume party event, not related to Halloween. There was a costume contest, and my oshi Amaki Jun won! She's the one dressed up as Elsa from Frozen.

 

Here's a summary of the rankings:

#1 Member: Kubota Misa (Armorgirls)

#1 Unit: Armorgirls

#1 in Slimegirls (they rank Slimegirls separately): Matsugami Yuko

 

Here's a video with some backstage footage and snippets of a recent performance held outside of their theater. It's one of the first performances featuring Alice Juban member Sakura Yuki since she took a short break to visit her relatives in Fukuoka.

 

This is a video featuring Amaki Jun in one of her recent photoshoots. Whenever she has a photoshoot, a video of the photos being taken is uploaded which I find pretty cool. It's cute to see her doing various poses and comparing them to the final product can be cool. This particular photoshoot was for an online thing with WPB, which you can buy for 1000yen/approximately 9 dollars here: http://shupure-isp.s...ml#244amaki_jun There are some really great pictures.

 

Recently, some Alice idols have been doing photoshoots for something called Dekakeru, which you can view here:

http://dekakeru.jp/course/view/633 (Tachibana Anna, center of Alice Juban and Kamen Joshi)

http://dekakeru.jp/course/view/634 (Amaki Jun, Armorgirls)

 

To save the pictures in high quality, all you have to do is delete the end of the URL.

http://img.dekakeru....q2sioufnt_f.jpg So you would take this pic and change the URL to

http://img.dekakeru....jmq2sioufnt.jpg and it will give you a high quality pic!

This week's theater ranking video

#1 Member: Hoshino Rinka (OZ)

#1 Unit: Armorgirls

#1 in Slimegirls: Otogi Kanna

 

Definitely some interesting rankings this time around. Armorgirls have been pretty popular lately it seems, and I think this is one of the first times I've seen an OZ member take #1. Yuko not winning the Slimegirls ranking for once is neat as well.

 

Also, I accidentally left out Steamgirls member Kamiya Erina's dekakeru course from my last post, so here it is:

That's awesome! Indies group rarely sell that much.

 

^ ^ Armor Girls has an interesting style, it probably helps them attract more fans.

Not just rarely, they're the first female indies to ever top the oricon chart(and only 2 male records made it before them)

I don't know how recently this started, but they've been translating stuff on their Kamenjoshi YouTube channel for foreigners :D

I think it's only been maybe about a month or so.

They started with the story about Kamiya Erina's Strabismus and her surgery to correct it, but they've really picked it up lately and started translating more videos.

There's also the Youtube channel Kamen Gaijin that's been doing some video translations:

I heard that Alice Project's founder was a top gigolo.

Also, Karen-chan committed suicide by jumping to an incoming train...

^ No one knows how Karen died other than her family. It was reported as being an accident. Do you have some actual evidence to support that?

Post 848 of this 2ch thread. While this report didn't talk about the victim's name but judging from time and location as well as the victim's age and where she grew up, there is a very high probability this is Karen-chan.

That makes sense, it probably was her. It's still sad.

Thanks to YouTube Red screwing things over with Japanese music, Alice Project is one of the channels being blocked. However there is one video that I managed to find that hasn't been blocked. It's a subtitled music video by Kamen Gaijin and all of their Daily Alice stuff still seems to work. It might be the only place to actually see their stuff if YouTube keeps this up.

 

 

If you're interested in them, by all means become a fan. I'd love to have more english speaking fans around this forum.

Loving Kamen Joshi's new MV for "Dai! Gyaku! Ten!":

It's the Ending Theme for "Net High", an adventure game for the PS Vita.

That was a cool MV. The game looks interesting as well. I haven't exactly gotten any better at identifying the members though. The only one who I can easily recognize even with the mask on is Momose Hitomi.
