    Well AKM are bearless now...
    babyraids are in my opinion the most underrated and underappreciated group around
    Five totally different characters that however form a very homogenous unit

    And both groups may be the best live acts around. They really rock :)

    amiinA
    Bellring Shoujo Heart
    Hauptharmonie
    3776
    sora tob sakana

    WARNING, unpopular opinion follows regarding Stardust groups. ;-)
    Spoiler:
    This is only NOW. Maybe in 2 weeks or so it will change (well, at least sora, Bellring and amiinA will stay, I think). At the moment I can't enjoy stuff by Stardust very much, it is all okay - but ... something is missing for me. Except for 5572320 ... ;-)

    Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku
    Bellring Shoujo Heart
    BiSH
    Yurumerumo!
    Tokyo Girls Style (I don't know if they count as idols anymore, they said they aren't but...)

    Honorable mention to Dempagumi.inc because I love them but TGS has some of my favorite albums.

    I don't even know if BiLLIE IDLE are considered idols or not but they deserve some love too.

    If it does, then I'm throwing in LoVendoЯ as my favorite behind Momoclo. They rock live. But I don't think these types of groups (which focus only on music) count as idols.

    On the other hand, they do have glowsticks at their concerts, and, for the most part, they don't write their own music. Does that kinda make them idols?

    They'd be in my Top 5 if they did count.

    Has amiina album release? I watched PV. It's interesting.

    sora tob sakana is also in the focus of my attention

    new singles of 5572320 dismantled my brain on sugary pieces and then reassembled it in a much better manner ))

    BiLLIE IDLE had this whole "NOT IDOL" thing going on that I don't know anymore. And I can't remember them participating on typical idol festivals, but that migh be my bad memory.

    I love their albums, specially the last two.

    Yes, the amiinA album is out for 2 weeks or so. It is one of the most beautiful albums I have listened to.
    You should check it out. And sora tob sakana, too. Really great stuff.

    Not idols: Gacharic Spin

    Just in case anyone wants to upload stuff :)


    And Akamaru Dash are down to 2 now? Jeez, what a shame :(

    My top 10:
    Momoiro Clover Z
    Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku
    Takoyaki Rainbow
    Team Syachihoko
    Karen Girl's
    Sakura Gakuin
    Tsuri Bit
    C-ute
    Berryz Koubou
    S/mileage

    So it's basically Stardust, Amuse, Hello! Project groups... with Tsuri Bit slammed in the mix.

    Here's my top 10 groups that aren't part of those 3 major talent agencies:
    Tsuri Bit
    Otome Shinto
    Oha Girl Chu! Chu! Chu!
    Rev. from DVL
    Candy Kiss
    Tokyo Girls' Style
    Aither
    Cupitron
    Idol College
    sora tob sakana

    I really can't stand Rock, Nu-Metal and Metalcore... so this new wave of Alternative Idols really isn't my thing. I prefer the traditional cute groups with loads of brass, strings and guitar/synth leads.

    Karen Girl's - Fly to the Future is my favourite idol album ever. I love every single song on it. If you guys can recommend me anything similar I'd really appreciate it!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THANKS FOR CREATING THIS THREAD, ebizori, IT'S INTRODUCED ME TO A LOT OF NEW MUSIC :)

    I like all Stardust Promotion idol group. And my favourite non-Stardust idol groups are Kamiyado, Wa-suta and Dempagumi.inc
