(Group) Chu-Z
« on: November 07, 2015, 12:38:43 PM »
As they are already around for a longer time, and with some motivation provided by tsutomo, I open up a thread about Chu-Z, one of the groups I put my main focus on.
Most of you should know the group already, but for those who don't: It is a six member unit performing mostly a mixture of EDM and Japanese idol pop. Kaede (aka DenDen) frequently takes on the main rapping in certain songs.
 

From left to right: Maia, Asuka, Luna, Kana Kaede, Miku
Each girl has a colour assigned to them, as you can see.

Hmmm when I saw them they wore more street-style fashion not "uniforms".

nowadays they have plenty of clothing to vary a little. I remember when I started following the group they were so poor they always used the same (simple) dress. took almost two years for them to finally change it  :lol:

wattstax is a lazy dude, should have put a little more effort here with some info and trivia around the group. like saying that Maia is a former Idoling!!! member, they had a blue member called Hatsune (nowadays a model) that graduated after less than six months in the group, they used to work in an "idol bar" called Hachioji Milk Hall when not performing on stage with the group (and that`s the reason why Hachioji is known as their "home"), they already managed to put two singles in the top 10 of Oricon weekly ranking...

wattstax is a lazy dude,...
All intentional. Needed to leave room for comments of other forum participants - like you ;)
Thanks for the provided extra info. As far as I know (and their Twitter tells me) they still appear regulay at Milk Hall. Would love to visit it some time. Still don't know exactly where it is located.

that would be impossible since Milk Hall closed its doors four months ago  :lol:

they have a new "idol bar" now, Harajuku Yellow. but they rarely appear there, it`s mainly the WenDee girls. I already told about this topic with you several times privately but you still seems to forget it.  :P and the Harajuku Yellow is very easy to spot, it`s in the vicinity of the famous Takeshita Doori. we could go there someday together.

oh yeah and this reminded me of another important info you left missing: they have two "sister groups" in WenDee and Amorecarina. both suck though.  :lol:

Regarding Milk Hall, it is always posts like these, that make me confused about it. :?



I am willing to go wherever they serve now, if you find the time for it ;)

And yes, they have sister groups. I think Baby Star is also one of them. But I don't really like those, that's why I omitted them.

huh?! they changed the name of that place? I see the twitter account changed its name too. I've seen some time ago an info around having shifts with men in some days and shifts with girls in others... Harajuku Yellow originally only had men (Johnny idol like) working there. so maybe they have different names for when men and women are there? yeah I know I can do some research to discover the answer but I'm too lazy now  :P

Until February Chu-Z at their lives will held Cd-release events only. That means you have to buy the single for 1,000¥ each and get a lottery ticket. This allows you to either:
1. Kobetsu Cheki
2. Kobetsu Akushukai
3. Cd Sign
4. Harem Cheki

Title will be "Chu-Z my selection" and the release is scheduled for March 9th, if I heard correctly.

They weren't as bad as usual today, maybe because they spared us of the Boombastic crap ;)

Good news: Full-length version of "Girls on the Run" finally released!



Bad news: Asuka will graduate at the end of their tour in March.

I was definitely expecting MAIA to leave first (and then join/start another group).

Do you really believe Maia will continue as idol? Didn't she turn 28 last year?
