Even though wikipedia has a more extensive biography, wiki.ppn has more of the important musical stuff, like the discography. Check it out here:

She's done lots of collaboration with m-flo (whom I love) but that's what she's widely known for. Which is a shame because I think she has a really pretty voice!''

BoRn 2 Luv U

Miss You m-flo loves melody. feat ryohei (love him also) *Note: The original PV got deleted so you'll have to bear with stepmania video, but just listen to the song.

I was listening to Nochiura Natsumi and Gomattou music the other day and thought, why isn't there a thread for these two groups? Since two of them have basically the same members, I thought a merged thread would keep things easier for everyone. Now you may be thinking, WHY? They were one shot groups, noone knows about them, and noone cares. But I'm sure there are a lot more fans of these groups than just me out there, and I think they deserve some recognition!

So, discuss these two amazing but short lived groups and the members in it (within the topic range, as they have their own separate threads) :sob:
