Topics I've Started

22/7 (Nanabun no Nijūni)

30 September 2017 - 09:07 AM

From wikipedia

"22/7 (read as Nanabun no Nijūni (ナナブンノニジュウニ Twenty Two Per Seven)) is a Japanese idol project between Yasushi Akimoto, Aniplex, and Sony Music Records. The project is described as "The Idols Who Transcend The Dimension." A digital idol audition for the 8 characters was held until December 17, 2016 with final examination was held on December 24, 2016. A CD debut and an anime project are included in the project."

 

Initially they stated it would be 8 characters/idol but 11 members were chosen. Who those last 3 will voice is unknown

As is common with Sony groups, they have a vevo for international fans. Their first song is Bokuwa Sonzai Shiteinakatta with a 3d animated video of their 2d characters. It was done with motion capture so it truly is a mixture of 2d and 3d.

There is also a short version where the members transform into their characters

 

 

I'll remove this if it leaves youtube but bside

 

 

All the members have their own showroom channel and they're regularly active on there. Interesting for international fans one of their members, Sally, speaks fluent English and regularly does a mixture of English and Japanese in her showroom often stopping to translate interesting points to the other language.

Whilst the members don't have twitter you can send them messages using their names(in Kanji) as hashtags.

Nama hamu to Yaki udon!

Self-produced comedy idol duo Nama Hamu to Yaki Udon. Also known as Higashi(East) and Nishi(West).

Quote from TIF English section on them

 

 

Namahamu & Yakiudon A JK girls’ unit named from their favorite foods. JK is a short for “Joushiki wo Kutsugaesu” which means “we explode the established theory.” They produce themselves in planning, lyrics, songs, costumes and so on. They usually have a short skit during their concert, it has a good reputation.

 

 

 

Nama hamu birthday: 1997.8.22

Yaki Udon birthday: 1998.3.1

 

As you might have guessed the group name comes from their favourite food "Raw ham" and "baked udon" (although I thought it was fried udon? maybe someone can help me here...) Their fans are suitable called "gluttons."

They just last month played their 3rd one-man-live! In front of 3,000 people in TDC. They also now regularly appear on various "niche" idol TV shows so I imagine even fans of other groups have started to notice them more and more. They managed to catch Oomori Seiko's attention and she wrote a song with them!

They even recently (won a competition to?) appeared in the Tiger mask anime!

 

So here are some videos

FIRST the only subbed video I've found so far of a performance of theirs

 

Then in the tiger mask anime

 

Then with Oomori Seiko!

 

They also have their own kawaiinTV show "THE*Nama"

Kamiyado (神宿)

12 August 2016 - 04:20 PM

Kamiyado (神宿)
The Kami(divine/god) comes from 神宮前 (Jingūmae) which is a district in Shibuya and Jingūmae 1 chōme to 4 chōme is where Harajuku is. The 'yado' comes from the Kanji for harajuku(原宿)

So a combination of Jingūmae and Harajuku. Yado can also mean 'lodging'
Making their name both mean 'lodging where god is' and a reference to shibuya and harajuku(fashion centrals in Japan)
The acronym for KMYD is Kawaii (可愛い!) Max (全力!) Yell (応援!) Dream (夢!).
