Title: (Group) Sakura Gakuin
Post by: rurika9 on September 10, 2010, 01:11:15 AM
Another group from the 'TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2010' line-up!! Looks really promising, I can see some very cute lolis too!!  8)
Also some of the members you may recognize from 'Karen Girl's' (the group that sang the opening themes for the TV anime: 'Zettai Karen Children')

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_oDUEZDOOI18/TForv14TxWI/AAAAAAAABFI/akw54yi-AMM/s1600/sakuragakuin+profile+2.jpg)

There is currently no media on this group apart from photos and interview from the festival, so no real idea as to what music they'll produce (but I'm guessing something real cute?!  XD)

Please feel free to add more, thank you very much!  :)

I originally started following them through the Karen Girl's members but then switched to Miyoshi Ayaka and Horiuchi Marina. :lol: I'm fucking thrilled now that Ayaka's a model for Seventeen, this should bring her tons of opportunities to grow big (pun intended).

Some random pics for now and the Kagrra, PV that Ayaka was featured in a while ago.

New idol group Sakura Gakuin recently announced that they will release their debut single on December 8, titled "Yume ni Mukatte."

Managed by Amuse and signed with record label Vision Factory, the group was barely formed in April of this year. It currently consists of 10 members, ranging from 5th grade to 8th grade. The group includes Ayami Mutou and Suzuka Nakamoto (both formerly of Karen Girl's), Ayaka Miyoshi (one of the winners of this year's Miss Seventeen audition), and Aira Matsui (a fashion model for the magazine nicola).

Sakura Gakuin first performed the song "Yume ni Mukatte" at the Tokyo Idol Festival in August. The single will include two other songs, plus instrumentals for the three tracks.

Before the CD release, they will hold their first solo event, called the "Sakura Gakuin Matsuri," at Yokohama Akarenga Soko on November 28.

On the 28th, Sakura Gakuin held their first solo event “Sakura Gakuin Festival ☆ 2010”.

This event preceded their CD debut which will be on December 8th. Tickets to their 2 performances were sold out in the same day. Many excited fans rushed to the venue.

At the event, they started with their lively song “School days”. They continued with “Hello! IVY”, which was filled with energy and caused the enthusiasm in the venue to heat up at once.

During the middle of the event the girls split into their units, which focus on club activities like the Baton Club, Cooking Club and Go-Home Club (People who don’t do clubs and go home after school). Each girl showed their individuality through their performances. Lastly, the members sang and danced to their song, “Yume ni Mukatte”. The audience’s energy reached it’s peak.

Furthermore, after Sakura Gakuin releases their CD they will hold a release commemoration event. They plan to hold an in-store live at ishimaru soft and Tower Records Shibuya.

December 11, 2010 (Saturday) Tokyo’s ishimaru soft
1st performance START 12:30/ 2nd performance START 14:30

December 14, 2010 (Tuesday) Tokyo’s Tower Records Shibuya
B1 STAGE ONE – START 19:00

sold out on the same day is very auspicious for a start, wish them good luck with their single release (meaning more sales that the expected by the management)

Hi everyone!  I'm new to the forums, but I'm only sorta new to this group.  I started a thread on the Hello! Online website about this group last month.  A few people posted responses, but the only one really posting there is me.  XD Here's the link: http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?/topic/20750-sakura-gakuin/. (http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?/topic/20750-sakura-gakuin/.)  I've collected as much data and YouTube links as possible.  I'm really supposrting these girls too!  I bought their CD from CD Japan and I uploaded their CD to Megaupload in Wave Sound.  Here's that link: http://www.twitter.com/?d=FPJ60JK7. (http://www.twitter.com/?d=FPJ60JK7.)  There's also a Sakura Gakuin page on Facebook.  I tried typing the link, but in the preview I saw I linked my fan club for Akari Saho instead!   

My favorite members are Ayami, Ayaka (the most beautiful!), Hinata and Nene.  They're all pretty cute, and good singers.  I think they are the future of J-Pop!  :)

Wave Sound is very high quality, better than 320 k bits. 

I did get a few responses to the thread yesterday (it's 1 a.m. where I'm at).  I think it's because I begged a new online friend from Tokyo who knows 4 languages to post!  They were pleased to hear someone else, I guess.  XD

Are you registered with H!O?  My friend from Tokyo, Angelhearts, is the one who uploaded all the Sakura Gakuin and Twinklestars stuff on the tracker.

I'm trying to figure out how you upload a photo or thumbnail here.  "Insert image" doesn't give me the option of choosing a pic from my computer.  I have scans (poor ones) of my Suzuka card I got with the CD and some stuff Angelhearts sent me.

I uploaded some videos of Sakura Gakuin to Mediafire.  One is their intro video that you can watch on Nico Nico Douga and their Facebook page.  This one was difficult to download into my computer.  The other used to be on YouTube, but they took it off because of copyright infringement!   XD  It was the first in a series of videos that showed Ayami and Ayaka doing a radio program.  I watched two, but only downloaded the first one.  It shows Ayaka shuffling papers before the program, and is mostly silent.  Hopefully this link will work: http://www.mediafire.com/?ge69g9s0j5otyc6.

Yes, Twinklestars is the baton club featuring seven members of Sakura Gakuin.  Ayaka, Airi and Suzuka are not members.  Maybe they can't twirl a baton?   :D  Or they're too damn tall?!   XD

The Twinklwstars video is now on Youtube and the Sakura Gakuin Facbook page.  I forgot to write down the link for YouTube.  Sorry!   :lol: 
If you go on Facebook, be sure to watch the OPV I made for "School Days".  Also, one of the Twinklestars photos is mine.  The uploader stole it from my thread on Hello! Online, but later apologized.   :D

Does anyone here watch Japanese horror and thriller movies?  According to Ayaka Miyoshi's page on IMDb, www.imdb.com/name/nm3834378/ (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3834378/), she was in two movies.  One of them is a revenge thriller about a teacher that accuses her students of murdering her four-year-old daughter titled KOKUHAKU (CONFESSIONS).  Here's a trailer, but I don't see Ayaka in it:

^ayaka was in the movie Kokuhaku, though she wasn't as prominent, just a side role as one of the students in the class... she plays somewhat of a prick though :P

you know, i really LIKE that twinklestars song, first time i heard it, it really reminded me of Cymbals (their song 'Rally' in particular cymbals - RALLY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQF9mRHn_X4#))... i wonder who produced that track...

After some further digging (derp (http://j-lyric.net/artist/a055176/)), it's actually Oki Reiji (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ja/wiki/%E6%B2%96%E4%BA%95%E7%A4%BC%E4%BA%8C) (guitar/bass) from Cymbals :P

I really appreciate the new group in many ways- nice to see Science being given some props, and it is a different direction than BabyMetal, which strengthens the whole appeal of Sakura Gakuin as being creative.

In a world now filled with perhaps a billion or so Idol groups, developing unique attributes and strengths is a must in trying to gather some of the billion or so Idol fans.

Their new single "My Graduation Toss" will be released on February 27th.

Yes, this means Suzuka will be graduating from Sakura Gakuin... as expected.

I wonder if they are now going to completely separate Babymetal from SG. Somehow with BM having had their major debut, this seems pretty likely to me.


Covers for the single:

Good News \m/ :')

"Legend Z" concert has just ended~ It's a great success! Thank you all those who went for the concert~
Babymetal sang all their song including Ijime, Dame, Zettai twice, encore twice too and everyone in the hall thought BABYMETAL is going to disband... However... NO!
Good news!! One of the fans who went to the concert said that BABYMETAL announced that they WILL NOT DISBAND~!! ♥ \m/
Suzuka will graduate, and BABYMETAL will no longer be one of the non-academic activities in Sakura Gakuin. Instead BABYMETAL has become an extra-curricular activity.
Though Suzuka will remain in BABYMETAL, we don't know when BM will end so don't miss their next legend live on June 30, 2013 at NHK Hall~!

The girls were having fun planning the surprise and the album, but when faced with presenting the album and thanking
Suzuka with the letters they had written inside of the album, the tears started to flow. Seems like the managers are
doing a great job with letting these girls lead a normal life within their 'idol' status.

That was a fun episode- Sakura Gakuin girls did really well handling the unknown, and Idoling!! girls were very nice hosts.

Saki Ooga was really funny, the senior Idoling!! members were loving her antics:

Quote
Four Sakura Gakuin members graduate from the group
March 31, 2014

On March 30, members Horiuchi Marina (15), Iida Raura (15), Sugisaki Nene (15), and Satou Hinata of idol unit Sakura Gakuin, which requires graduation from the group upon graduation of middle school, appeared at their public graduation ceremony.

During their graduation ceremony, Horiuchi formally proclaimed with tears, "We will work towards our respective dreams.  We hope someday we can provide requital for favors granted to us" and vowed to play an active role in future activities.

Sugisaki, who wants to become a nurse, will retire from the entertainment industry.  The other 3 members will continue their activities in entertainment.

As sad it is to see four girls leave (and two founding members at that) on the other hand I'm curious to the two (or four?) girls that will be added. Amuse seems to have a knack for finding unique and very talented girls.

And the new Sakura Gakuin will likely have their first big performance on TIF 2015. The new members will be steamed ready for this event.

Moreover I'm curious what this year's graduates will do in the future.
Title: Re: (Group) Sakura Gakuin
Post by: Rezar on March 25, 2015, 10:47:40 AM
As I recall the plans are something like this:
Moa/Yui: well for now they have Babymetal so they are set for a while
Hana : She want's to continue singing/dancing, I could see her continuing with the wrestling theme probably collaborating with the wrestling association.
Yunano: She want's to model/act

EDIT: Actually there was an interview recently that have now been translated where they talk about it - > http://babymetalfanclub.com/direct-interview-with-the-march-graduating-sakura-gakuin-members/ (http://babymetalfanclub.com/direct-interview-with-the-march-graduating-sakura-gakuin-members/)


As for new students, I very curious on how many members they will add, they never added four new members before and I'm not sure that it would work.
On the other hand they kinda need to do something, they can't continue with having more members graduate than they add.

I have a wishlist of new members, one is Hana's little sister http://artist.amuse.co.jp/artist/taguchi_otoha/ (http://artist.amuse.co.jp/artist/taguchi_otoha/) another is Rico Sakurai from Si-Stella I think she's extremely good for her age but she's not with Amuse so it's extremely unlikely.

Rico Sakurai is the one being Su here

Anyways, I planned to go to TIF and re-booked so I could go see PASSPO and it just happened that Ayami announced a mini tour just after, so I obviously got a ticket.

So I'm seeing her next Sunday and for some reason right now it's the thing I'm most excited about.

Title: Re: (Group) Sakura Gakuin
Post by: Rezar on July 19, 2015, 08:06:12 PM
^ Yeah but it seems she goings towards some more contemporary sounding stuff lately.

It's tough as a solo idol, Ayami is charming like no one else but overall I just think she would be better off in a group she's also a great dancer which we don't really get to see.

Maybe she could make a group with Raura, Marina, Yuika and Hinata (I'm not sure if they are done with the anime thing).... ok it's just me rambling, now.

Here's Rau in a show from the other day, nothing much happens but Rau's little screams and laughs are just adoarable.

Post by: vlinorman on July 19, 2015, 09:27:54 PM
Ayaka was one of the best singers in the original SG together with Ayami and Suzuka, but she went the actress/model route.

It's tough being solo in showbiz no matter what, but at least as a former idol -depending on popularity of the group- there's automatically a headstart with a number of fans who will buy your stuff no matter what.

Normal girls aspiring to be singer-songwriters have it tougher to gain attention although the very talented ones can nowadys gain attention through Nicovideo and other social media.

I've discovered this girl recently, she's so amazing

Post by: Rezar on August 03, 2015, 11:29:35 PM
^ the singer/songwriter girls have it a bit easier since they are more respected than solo idols, as for solo idols it seems the more successful ones these days are the ones that are voice actors for anime.

---

Preview of the new SG video - it's in the educational line they usually do every year I guess it will be with an issue of Ciao during the fall.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L0Tf_i5EX4

I like the vocals better on this one than on the 2014 nendo stuff, the 2014 nendo vocals were too processed and there were little variation.

Also it does seem like it's a complete reboot of SG this time, usually the new girls don't get singing lines the first year and this year they do, they did at TIF as well

Impressive that you went all the way out there with such limited Japanese ability and just randomly tried to make new friends in line.

I definitely hate when artists play in places way too small for the amount of people that would go. "Sold Out" seems to translate to "Fire Hazard" with the way people get crammed into those tiny venues sometimes.

Seeing how crazy and sweaty a lot of male wota get, having a female only section is always a good idea. It was 40℃ that day? Ouch!

Ayami has announced that she's going on hiatus, I'm actually really sad about that :(

She announced it on LoGiRL http://www.dailymotion.com/video/k2LCLifaDByIRUemg3Q

(I haven't watched it yet because I wasn't home and now I don't dare)

Anyways, after a lot of support on twitter she replied on her blog http://www.mutoayami.jp/voice/201512/16214816/

Translation by Onji Kobe
Quote
To the people who always support me

I have something I would like to tell you.

I decided to stop my showbiz activities for a while, with playing the Akasaka Blitz solo-concert on December 23 for the last time -- for now.

I'm sorry for making a sudden notice.

It's not an easy decision. I took long serious deliberations.

Finally, I've sorted out my feelings and now I inform you of this.

On April 29, I could stand on the stage on Shibuya Koukaido as a solo singer, the place I had long been admiring.

The fans who've supported me might think I have still long way to go.

But I've been in showbiz world since I was a child,

and honestly, I feel I'm here just because I've been here.

Of course, I've been trying my best, but I find myself having no future prospects -- how I would like to be.

And I think it's hard to go ahead without hard resolution on my future.

In this showbiz world, it's impossible to go ahead just because I love to sing.

I need to have a strong will of myself.

There are fans who've been supporting me, and there are staffs who help me.

Because of that, I must not be unaware of a clear vision on what I aim to be.

I must be more confident in leading all of you to a wonderful place.

I might have been in too favorable surroundings.

Now I want to have a time to foster my heart -- to raise my sweet hope into a strong determination.

I'll leave a place where pampered me, where I've take as granted.

And I want to see several new worlds.

And when I get a determination, a hard confidence that I am a singer.

I'll be back.

You will find a new Ayami.

And. I have best mates. I heartily hope their dreams come true.

If there would be a guy who is up against the wall which I've hit,

I wanna be one who can say 'It's no problem. You can overcome!'

In order to be so, I shall face myself, and proceed forward.

I'll learn and absorb new things,

with the faith that I can send you better singing some time.

I've been given a lot of power from your warm cheers.

I love you.

Thank you for your support!!

Look forward to seeing new Muto Ayami!!

December 16, 2015

Muto Ayami

I'm going to see her at what is for now her last concert on the 23'rd - I will need many tissues  :cry:

Unfortunately not, frankly I think Amuse was hoping for her to land a deal with a major label and when it didn't happen they said stop (they have been releasing her stuff so far) she simply wasn't profitable for them.

Also she's been at this since she was 8-9 years old or so with only one short break just after SG so it's probably time for her to re-evaluate her future.

But it seems like she's already saying that she WILL be back just as an artist and not an idol, in my opinion everything about her was kinda artist like already aside from her not writing her own material.

Frankly this news has really upset me, I'm kinda beside myself right now :(

Also happy 17'th birthday to Hinata, I think it was nice of her to spend the evening watching Ayami's show.

Several other idols were there, Yuika ofc, Ayaka from Lyrical School, 2 girls from GEM, Yunano a graduated SG girl was there and at least one current SG girl was there Saki S.

6 old re-recorded songs + the intro song (Mezase! Super Lady) that has been on the last 2 cds as well, and then finally 5 new songs.

Not sure what Amuse is doing here!!!

she had changed her name to Honjyo in 2015
Originally, we knew her as Yunano Notsu (野津友那乃) but now she is known as Yunano Honjyo (本条友奈埜).

Here is the episode where Yunano had her starring turn, with eng Subs.

New student counsel

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

L->R Aiko, Vice President - Sara, President - Mirena, MC Chairperson

This means for the first time in the group a junior member (Aiko) has a higher position than a senior (Mirena) - but it does make sense since Aiko has been in SG the longest of the three girls and I think it's a given she will be president next year.

Sad news (for me at least)

Ayami has canceled her contract with Amuse and has decided on studying abroad, good for her I guess - I'm still rooting for her to come back as a singer/songwriter once she's done with that.

They did it again, the new album from Sakura Gakuin has 10 (ten) rerecorded songs and 4 new ones!

Honestly this is ridiculous although I must admit that the rerecorded versions (band versions) sound really good and it's some of my favorite songs like Mikansei silhouette, Otomegokoro and Marshmallow iro no Kimi to.

5 Former Idols who Succeeded in Their Own Passions
Posted by Sharuru on May.19.2017

Airi Matsui


It isn’t easy to go from one field to another, but that one leap of faith in a different direction can sometimes prove successful. Matsui is one case where she may be even more recognized than ever before—the model and actress was once a member of idol group Sakura Gakuin before graduating in 2012 to continue her career as a model. Now she’s a regular in popular fashion magazine Ray, and making a name for herself on the silver screen. The 20-year-old starred in the high school romance hit “Aozora Yell”, and also appeared in “Flying Colors” alongside actress Kasumi Arimura.

The reindeer is Sakura Gakuin’s Megumi Okada, and I think there is a good
chance that she will remain active in show biz after Graduation from Sakura Gakuin
