Didn't they say they'd announce the group's name in January? Well it's February now... at least where I am

^ probably delayed because of the Country Girls major debut push?

clips of each member singing. @1:10 Hirose is pretty good.

Rumors are the new name will be

TBA=TBA

But others say the name will be

TROLLINGYOU

(Derived from the ancient Icelandic for ROFL)

Other topic...
Some are saying that the parentage of
Sakurako Wada is somewhat Mythical...

The tale is that one day, Ayaka Wada was
Swimming in the sea
And called out to Mt Olympus


And moments
later, a 12 year
old Sakurako
emerged from the
Sea Foam, wearing
a Sea Blue
Beret


Reporters caught up
with both Wadas, who
Each denied the rumor,
But photographs
Of Ayaka and Sakurako
revealed strikingly
Similar looks....



Enquiring minds want to know!

It feels a bit weird on the tongue still and 'factory' is a pretty generic word to use, but overall I'm just glad that they finally have a name and - well, you know - what's in a name :lol: I also like that it is somewhat related to Berryz Kobo :3


Now remind me to turn this thread into the Kobushi Factory thread a few days from now :lol: Still letting the unit name news sink in here in the news section

At first I was upset cause I was like "um Kobushi Factory sounds like a ripoff of Berryz Kobo." But now that I know that was done on purpose and Captain had a hand in it I'm happy for the tribute. Also after hearing the various definitions of Kobushi it sounds like they put a lot of thought into it. Anyway just glad for a name reveal.
