Same here. Manatsu in blonde? Naosuke and Rio look just too manly. :thumbdown:

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.

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.

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.

^ Naosuke is my favorite kind of idol, super sharp and dynamic moves and an expressive face :)

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

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.

I guess that nice if the fans root for her, I hope they show it so she can get more confident.

Just got the new live-dvd, not sure what kind of magic the producers are using but the singing sounds suspiciously good!

Check your link, please. Instead of Youtube something like anyatatube is named  ;)
Here is the right one:

Honestly, when I read your post I was thinking: Who is pregnant?  :lol: Bad name for their video newsletter, much worse than their changed group name  :smhid

Yea, now the video shows. But prior it was linking to a non-existened anyatatube.com. But now all text has a big letter next to a small one: babyraids is shown as bAabyraids. Is it just me? Did I catch a virus? :shocked

I'm guessing there's some kind of April fools purr going on with the forum software ;)

EDIT: Noticed that "i-d-o-l" is swapped out with "pet" all over the forum as well.

without the -'s but if I write it it will be changed to pet!

Just got the A-version of their CD since I liked the songs in the Budokan video and I think it's basically as good as the real cd, I think the songwriting this group has is very consistent

(I already had the B version).

^ Hmm, yeah, I've been thinking I should perhaps get some of the newer singles to check out the b-sides which aren't on the album - as a lot of great tracks are on the old b-sides.

Just found this half hour live video:

I love her trousers. This and Den-chan's dress. :wub:  But Ricopin's  :shocked  And who misguided Naosuke to her current hair cut?  :smhid Don't even get me started on Manatsu's change :angry:

As you probably realised already, I don't like their new style...
