Buono! 3-girl idol group of Shugo Chara! fame
Posted 29 June 2012 - 11:06 PM
Buono! is a Japanese idol pop group with bubbly rock-ish tunes, originally formed to do opening and ending themes for the Shugo Chara! anime (and did so from 2007-2010) but has continued its activity even past the end of the anime. They are part of Hello! Project, which includes several popular idol groups such as Morning Musume, C-ute and Berryz Kobo (which has been to America twice in the past two years, to great reception). The members are (from left to right): Airi Suzuki of C-ute, and Momoko Tsugunaga and Miyabi Natsuyaki of Berryz Kobo. They have 13 singles, 3 albums and a mini-album to their name; the latest single being Hatsukoi Cider / DEEP MIND. If you haven't already heard of them, I recommend you check them out; here goes the video for their latest single:
I don't know if you've heard about Berryz Kobo's trips to Sakura-Con in 2011 and AnimeNEXT a few weeks ago, but if you have, you'll know that idol groups such as these have the capability to bring an atmosphere to a convention unlike any you've ever seen before. People WILL fly from all parts of the country (and even internationally) just to follow these idol groups where they go. The passion of idol fans in support of their group is unrivaled. I've been to a few convention concerts, but the audience involvement at the ones I've been to with idols have been on another level. I could go on, but I think I made the point clear: Bring Buono! to ACen, and expect much excitement

Please make this happen ;-; (Buono!, C-ute, Berryz Kobou, Morning Musume, S/mileage...)
Not to mention, when Hello~Project groups have come to US. conventions in the past, many Japanese fans follow them to support them in the U.S., and it makes for a heck of an experience for the rest of the con-goers. I hear the Japanese fans are seriously cool!
Not to mention, Hello!Project has come to the east and west coasts, it's really time for us in the middle to be able to see them!! Make it happen!

If anyone in Hello!Project comes, my parents promised to take me and my friends to this convention. I've never been to ACen, and I've never seen H!P members in person, so if they came it'd kill two birds with one stone and definitely be a dream come true *_*
Personally really hoping for C-ute or Buono! I feel like C-ute would come to America right away so long as a convention invited them. Since they are the sister group of Berryz Koubou, who has come twice now, and all the members are now 16+.
ACen, please invite them ;_; <3
