I first heard them on Idol Beats Radio (Daydreamer0Fly's internet radio station) and immediately liked what I heard. If I had extra money, I'd definitely get their stuff (or if it was available on US iTunes I'd get it that way...alas). Good stuff.

This is what I normally loop the audio of - but I love watching the video as well:

Wow, Babyraids didn't have a thread yet? Such a great group! I have really how expectations for them. I really hope they gain a lot of popularity. Very interesting, energetic girls with GREAT songs, with a very unique sound for the idol genre. (Also, they squirt their fans with squirt guns, which is loads of fun ;D)

Finally watched the live DVD and is was really great, found lots of great songs I hadn't heard before, particularly "Gate Of The Tiger" and "Level 1"

Naosuke (Takami Nao) stood out a lot to me there, and was surprised that Yoshino posted some great gravure pics of her earlier in the thread: http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=36397.msg1244281#msg1244281 (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=36397.msg1244281#msg1244281)

Budokan? Are they that big already to fill such a venue? How do they get signatures?
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids
Post by: mixedmedia on July 14, 2014, 02:40:13 AM
They came out and did ベイビーレイズ after the encore.
Also, they said that if they didn't collect the 10,000 signatures that they would disband at the end of the year.
Turnout was pretty good. Almost sold out? There were at least 2 open seats next to me in the second to last row.

Babyraids are holding their 2nd Anniversary Lives today (19th) and tomorrow (20th).

Tomorrow they will announce the results of their collect 10,000 signatures and play the Budokan, or split up, gimmick thing.

I was kind of hoping that they'd be outside the Budokan during the AKB48 janken tournament to collect signatures but I didn't see them. With 8 stops on their tour plus Tokyo Idol Fest, @JAM Expo, etc. I'd hope they'd have collected 10,000 by tomorrow.

Does seem unusual that they're aiming for Budokan after 2 years when 9nine, their senpais only had their first Budokan after almost 9 years as a group.

They got 13,872 signatures which means they'll be having a Budokan solo concert on December 18th!!!!

Just finished watching the livestream! It was so good! Loved the concert! It's been ages since I've watched any Babyraids, and I really love the songs, and they are a great group.

The signatures announcement bit was epic. Denchan failing to rip it all off properly and then the 13,872 announcement. Wow! So many!

(http://i.imgur.com/e6sgpDE.jpg)

It was also great that they performed with a live band in the 2nd half!

(http://i.imgur.com/RqWqsWy.jpg)

I agree that it seems Budokan is too big and too soon for them, but congratulations on getting all the signatures and securing that Budokan live for December!  :thumbsup

Oh yeah, they also announced their 8th single in the double encore, but didn't perform it or give a release date.

Such a fantastic group with awesome live performances. I saw them in July and it was one of the most energetic and entertaining concerts ever. I so desperately wish I could see their Budokan, but no way could I swing going to Japan this December, sadly >< Still, it's bound to be epic.

Great find. Enjoyed it a lot, though I think of some of their mid-tempo songs as being comparatively lush. Still nice fan interaction and MC (I like that) and a live band part. Quite a few new songs as well.

And I never realised Ricopin having such a cute voice. She should work part time at a maid café. Rioton on the other hand must have gotten her place in the group due to a charity event. Still like her though.

Babyraids held their Budokan live on 18th Dec.

From what I can tell from their email newsletter, about 5500 people were there, which is about 1/3 capacity for the venue.

They had a few announcements:

New single in spring 2015.
Budokan concert DVD release spring 2015.
17-date nationwide tour in spring.

and....

A NAME CHANGE!

「ベイビーレイズJAPAN」

Yes, they have changed their name from Babyraids to.... Babyraids JAPAN

I don't get this current trend of idol groups changing their name...

At least they didn't pick something in French that sounds terrible in English like ANGERME?

The Japanese reaction seemed positive with people associating it with X Japan, Ayaman Japan, Samurai Japan, Nadeshiko Japan, etc. but I feel that it limits them. They even said part of the name change was to get the hearts of all Japanese people so I feel like it's neglecting the rest of the world but then again, how does one balance domestic and international activities and how much does it pay back in return? I feel like Japanese fans are loyal, will buy lots of stuff, and go to a lot of events since they're in Japan but there are only so many of them and it results in the music/business model being closed off to the rest of the world. On the other hand, international fans aren't really concentrated in any distinct locations and have trouble getting access to goods and events due to geography and language.

I was a little worried since the arena seemed empty when it started but it filled out towards the end. From what I could get from Twitter, Matsui Rena, PASSPO, 9nine, and Cheeky Parade were there (at least some of them) representing.

Anyway, the DVD should be pretty awesome when it comes out.

Post by: Rezar on March 10, 2015, 08:44:43 PM
I was watching the dance video versions of their videos and I noticed that Rio was very sloppy and thinking wtf is she doing.... and then I looked through the info in the cd-cover and noticed she was just 13 years old at the time of the recording!!!

In fact she turned 15 two days ago... my mind is blown, I thought they all were 19-20 years old.
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: mixedmedia on March 11, 2015, 02:12:44 AM
Regardless of her age, she's gotten a lot of criticism for her lack of dancing ability. The gap in the difference between her and the other members is pretty big but, I guess a lot of fans forgive her because of her looks.
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: wattstax on March 11, 2015, 08:17:17 AM
Rio totally lacks security or devotion. Not sure. I once was right in front of her during a show and the difference in dance skills was hilarious, especially when having Naosuke right beside her for comparison. Rio makes the right moves but with no power or recognizeable joy behind it. In DVDs it is not that easy to make out as the camera never focusses too long on a certain girl. I don't have the impression she improved with age.

But yes, it is strange that Rio is that much younger compared to her group mates. I also would have guessed them much older.

Ok now I feel bad for being so hard on her but is she's considered pretty?

Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: Jul3 on March 11, 2015, 02:10:03 PM
Rioton, yeah. She's a couple of years younger than the rest, can't dance very well, can't sing very well, and, according to the backstage parts of their first live DVD, is really nervous and lacks confidence. So she really stands out from the other members.

Having said all that, she is cute, and I think is well liked and I think brings a lot of character to the group. Without her they would overall be stronger performers, but something would be lacking. Her "uselessness" is kindof a charm point in a way?

As I said I kinda feel bad for dumping on her especially considering her age, and despite all my criticism I don't think she's dragging the group down overall.

However I'm not sure why the people that "created" Babyraids thought it was a good idea to put her in a group where the rest is 4-5 years older!

It's all about having the cute young sort of clumsy member that fans who like that sort of idol can cheer for. If everyone was really skilled, there wouldn't be much to distinguish them from other rock-type groups, especially the more mainstream ones.
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN

I wouldn't be so hasty. I just watched their show from Happy Jam a few days ago and that was really good. I don't really think just a couple of the A-side songs not being what you enjoy makes too much difference, when the rest of their catalogue is good.

I don't think it's completely horrible, I guess the arrangement is a little poppier than their previous stuff.

I just bought the previous single mainly for the "b-sides" and I really like them, and I got a Rioton card, YAY!

Post by: wattstax on October 16, 2015, 09:24:28 AM
Late reply. Skipped them at TIF, after seeing there dresses again :bleed eyes: It makes me doubtful too about my infatuation with the group, becoming discouraged by such shallow facts. It must be part the issue of their lame events (2shots for FC only).
Whatever. Rezar, why you are happy about the Rioton-card? The youngest members you normally try to avoid? ;P
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: Rezar on October 16, 2015, 11:00:56 AM
It was sarcasm ;)

I don't really care about the cards but I would have preferred a Ricopin card.

Anyways what bothers me most is Manatsu's hair color and her singing recently, I'm not really fond of vibrato vocals and she has been pushing it lately.
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN

My sister likes Rioton though. She squeezed her hand during a high touch :lol:
Ricopin is great. I like her way of speech, even though I shouldn't. Not so fond of kawaii behaviour.
Haven't listen to recent lives of them. I try to take attention of it next time I have the chance. Manatsu was always one of the idols I really appreciate as a proper singer. I can see vibrato changing my impression of her as well.
Her hairstyle on the whole is terrible. No way around it. (Damn, talking about an idols looks again. I feel so AKB :shocked)

This TIF made me loose all interest in Babyraids. Songs were still okay, but their performance at Sky Stage was lame and over exaggerated, starting the set with an MC(!) and then continuing with putting Manatsu in the spot light. Is that Babyraids or rather Manatsu & Babyraids?
Also Rio still sucks at dancing as always, though that is hilarious :lol:

I dont think it's fair to judge a group based from one performance. I wasn't there for the sky stage performance so cant say much (hear they're singing Tiger soul for the first song, which is rather a slow song), but IMO their performances at the other stages (smile, ship stage, and hot stage) is really fun ! (Especially this one haha (https://youtu.be/LvFBy81srjQ?t=48))

Then again, Sky stage isn't really suited for those kind of high songs like "Yoake Brand news days" since they dont really allow you to do hi-jumps up there (since it's dangerous) so it only makes sense if they singing their other songs (or probably their slower songs) like "tiger soul", which i really think suits the stage better.

For their other stages in #TIF imo they really choose their songs well, with all the old trade mark songs (like "babyraids",  "baby revolution" woot~~, and even "Level 1" !!!!)

As for Manatsu taking all the attention; dont really it's true at all.

- Their song "Wahaha" from coupling single Senkou Believer got Naosuke doing the rap segment,  and she seems very cool while doing it.  haha.

- Another song "Baby kiss" (which hopefully will be featured on their new album) got Denchan doing the solo "fishing" line (lol) it was hilarious.

- Well, i never liked Rioton, so can't find anything good about her, but i guess she's always at her best of being the "useless" one in the group lol... then again ,there maybe other people who like that kind of idols haha.

- Ricopin is always entertaining during MCs; so.... you either love or hate her really. Hahaha. She looks damn cute with her tiger ears and tiger tails tho !

Anyways, these are my personal observation. Imo, they have improved ALOT since the last time i see them last year- which is why i am really into them right now. Haha.  :)

Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: wattstax on August 17, 2016, 05:45:10 PM
Don't worry. My impression of Babyraids have been lost a long time already. The Sky Stage Live was just prove to me. I liked them once a lot. There album was great and I had even bought two DVD's by them. But since the Budokan show, which I found disappointing, they lost the idol appeal to me. It seemed the tried to be more then that (for the lack of better words). I also have an issue with their limited accessibility for events, especially cheki and akushukai.
But hey, that is just my opinion. ;)

And to not let there be any confusion: I like Rioton. It nevertheless is hilarious to see her every time. :lol:
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: infzer0 on August 17, 2016, 06:37:38 PM
yeah their cheki is quite rare, i think the last week of july they have a group cheki event for their new album release (very limited also), but i almost never see any 2shots with babyraids members before. For me, the closest thing i got back then is a "1shot" during Rioton's bday event and that was few years ago, haha.

But then again some idols like IdolStreet groups also quite hard for cheki and akushukai, though i still kinda like them despite the 'limited accessibility.' (although during TIF2016, all the idol street groups have free Hi5 at the greetings square somehow, lol)

I also somehow think, the harder you get to see them,  you will appreciate them more, but dunno maybe it's just me. :P Maybe i'm too spoiled that in Jakarta we have so many local idol groups here (JKT48, Lumina Scarlet,etc) ,it's soo easy to see their live and talk to them everyday (2shot etc etc) so in the end..i got really bored quite easily. Haha.

Anyways, just saw the babyraids Sky Stage performance from torrent i downloaded from aidoru online tracker. The setlist is just what i expected and it is indeed so so only. But at least it's still better than GEM singing ballad song in Smile Garden at night. Now that is really out of place  :lol:
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: wattstax on August 17, 2016, 06:49:58 PM
Yea, it is strange with me, but I guess in my mind I associate idols with events. No matter if I want to take part in it or not, I at least want there to be the option. Don't know if that makes sense. Maybe Babyraids jsut became too big in a too short amount of time for me? I have a tendency to avoid popular acts.

High touches are not my thing and only appreciated by me, if I already know the members and viceversa.

Hmm, the harder to see AT EVENTS, the less I like them. With only being able to see them on my Japan holidays, I feel the distance helps a lot to keep my fandom alive. I am actually quite happy now of not being exposed to idols / not living in Japan, as I assume it would lessen my infatuation with them if I were to see them every day. Like you described with your native idols.

yea. i think quite true with babyraids being famous too fast -- but it's still better than being disbanded (if they fail the budokan thingy back then lol)

but if you think about it, back then before their budokan thingy etc etc, i think it's already hard to be able to cheki/2shot/akushukai with them (i almost never seen any -- or maybe im just unlucky lol) so i dont see any difference nowadays - they're just as hard to access as they do back then.... well, maybe except now they are far more popular, haha

sometimes being popular does come with a price, but at the same time,  i feel kinda happy for them (for doing so well in such short ammount of time).

lol, we spam this forum :lol:

Actually I put much importance into events and I try to establish good relations with idol groups I like. Haven't thought it would affect me that much honestly.

And as far as I know, 2shots are mainly possible for fan club members at certain fan club events only. It seems to be that way since the beginning.

Haha. today is a holiday in my country (national day) so spent the entire day re-watching #TIF footages and updating my blog, so i got quite some free time xD I also just put up the babyraids poster i bought (http://www.20daysinjapan.akbingo.org/baby.jpg) last week during my japan trip into my bedroom wall (since i like to fill my bedrooms with idol posters xD). Now my bedroom wall is filled with Babyraids and Passpo posters mostly :D

As for the FC thingy...kinda reminds me of IdolStreet where you need to be FC before you can 2shot with them, haha. Actually my chikipa oshi (Yuriya) got birthday 2shot while im in japan last week, but its only for FC members.. In the end i just gave up (cuz too complicated) and go for other events. But i still like them though !

so yeah...the quest for me to take cheki/2shot/group shot with babyraids continues.. :cry:

Same with me. Plastered my wall with posters, chekis, flyers even. Love it :D And of course I already read your new blog post. You and your AV-Stars, lol.

Good luck on your quest ;)

There is this trend lately of throwing lightstick/UO's during "Yoake brand new days", and it seems that their management finally speaks out about it, and prohibited such things from happening in the future lives.

Check out their blog post here

I not sure when this trend starts,but the first time i see it during my TIF Trip last month, and im quite surprised when i saw it lol.

I already experienced throws of light sticks during TIF in 2014. It was repeated in 2015, always during the evening groups (Passpo, Up Up Girls,...)
At first I thought it looked cool, but as someone who has been hit by those quite often already, I can only agree with it been idiotic and hurtful. It became a part of evolution in Idol entertainment I am pretty disappointed in. At least those blockheads should restrict themselves to just act like that during groups who allow such things (if there are any), so that casual fans can anticipate it.
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: Jul3 on October 01, 2016, 03:27:29 PM
I think, according to their website, that they've banned the use of glowsticks/penlights completely, and also jumping and other things:
https://babyraids.lespros.co.jp/news/detail/4913

Seems a shame management need to go to those levels. Guess it's the problem of acts getting bigger and major labels etc.

Can you please elaborate? What connection do you see with major acts, that isn't there with indie groups?
Or do you mean, that only with major acts casual fans are present?
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: Jul3 on October 01, 2016, 04:47:06 PM
^ Hmm, it's like with BiSH, as soon as they signed to a major label they banned all the crowd activities that BiSH shows were kindof infamous for etc. It seems to me either a thing major labels enforce upon acts. Or maybe, just in general, it seems to me that the "larger" an act, the more control over crowd behaviour there is etc. Eg/AKB is the largest and they have the most strict crowd behaviour rules, (although, they still allow LCD penlights but not chemical glowsticks).
Title: Re: (Group) Babyraids JAPAN
Post by: wattstax on October 01, 2016, 05:07:44 PM
I see what you mean. Especially in the case of BiSH it is really contradicting - first allowing crowd activities (to gather people), but then probibiting it. The influence of the major lable could be a decisive factor here, for the sake of not alienating casual fans and families. It seems they also want to establish the traditional sense of "Idol", like AKB.
I can not really blame them in the case of Babyraids and the like though, as these groups never encouraged that behaviour. But I agree it is overboarding to even prohibit acts like lifting. I think the throwing of light sticks was just too extreme. Other major idol groups aren't that strict and adjusted to the new reality.

Some babyraids emotional idorock fes performance i found on youtube:

6th october 2016
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGUAPQGDj3Q


7th october 2016
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNj8EMpSyxY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqiqSHAGEkM

Note:
They sing yoake brand new days again after the "banning" incident and this time no lightstick throwing (well it's indoor venue anyways so easier to manage/secure). So the management got what they wanted, and reduced the ammount of "pinchike's , but i feel the live atmosphere is a bit different than usual lol.

Note 2:
Emotional idorock fest is webstreamed also through http://namatv.jp
They sure spent alot of effort for this live. The early morning neoki dokkiris is quite funny also :lol: :lol: :lol:. Too bad i didnt capture the entire thing (only some parts cuz my stream went lagging) maybe i'll upload it to youtube later

Edit:
uploaded clip of denchan's early morning dokkiris

in english language...dont think there is such thing.

Best you can just follow the members twitter account yourself and see the updates from there. Usually they will post anyway if there's a livestream or whatever going on.

For tv shows or anything just youtube for ベイビーレイズJapan (sorted by upload date) to see if theres anything new, or go to bittorrent tracker like aidoru online and search for babyraids there.

Any ideas of how to watch it? or perhaps are there any place I can watch it later?

For abema tv just download the app, and use a japanese VPN/proxy.
i used japanese VPN last time to watch livestream of some idol lives that limits the region to "japan" only.

Unfortunately would be too long for me to explain here, i suggest to google for it for tutorials ...haha. But yeah, it's possible.  :)
