RIZE Idols Thread - Candy Zoo, loop, FES☆TIVE

29 March 2014 - 09:42 PM



RIZE Productions is a company that has created four idol groups, the military-themed loop, the animal-themed Candy Zoo and the colorful FES☆TIVE.  The fourth group that was recently formed is named Selection, and I have no information for them right now.  I blogged about RIZE idols here.  





Candy Zoo formed on May 18, 2013.  Each girl not only has an official color, but also an official animal, as would be expected from a group with “Zoo” in its name.  Although most of the member’s animals are ones that you would find in a zoo, Yuuna's official animal is a sheep.  Speaking of whom, in what may be a first for a Japanese idol group, the original leader, Sakamaki Yuuna, is not the oldest, but rather the youngest.  Candy Zoo recently performed a new song titled “GO GO ☆ Dinosaur”.  The saddest news about Candy Zoo, from my point anyway, is that the oldest member, Ootsuka Minami, graduated on May 25.  On June 21 Hoshi Riara became Candy Zoo's second leader.  Chiba Rian graduated on November 30, 2014.

"CWB!!" (September 28, 2014)

The first group RIZE created was the military-themed loop, which formed on April 9, 2012 with six members.  During May and June 2013 loop had seven members, but they went back down to six, after the departure of original member of Yamada Ami.  They are the only RIZE group with an official music video, for their song “Susume! Hope!” (“Forward! Hope!”).
