E-girls can freaking dance!

E-girls (EXILE Girls Unit) are a Japanese Idol/Girl group consisting of the groups Dream, Happiness, FLOWER, bunny (non debuted dance group), and EGD (EXPG Girls Dancer). They are part of the avex trax music label in Japan. They debuted in 2011. You can check their website here at E-girls Official Site.

The reason I am posting this is because of the freaking amazing dance number at the beginning of the PV (Promotional video). Well at about 45 seconds into the PV. You usually don’t see these types of groups dance in such a hip hop style. Not saying other Idol/Girl group aren’t able to dance like this but it’s very rare to see this style within these groups. The craziest part is how perfectly in sync they are when dancing in such a large group. Makes you wonder how many hours they spent learning the routine to execute it almost perfectly.

The second part of the video is for a remix in Japanese of the song from “The Never Ending Story” The video is about a girl who is having a hard time making friends. She find the book “The Never Ending Story” and she is taking to another world up these beautiful stairs. She sees all the E-girls who are dressed in lovely blue dresses, they all look very cute. Which begins her never ending story. I really like the message the PV gives about making new friends and not being afraid of making said new friends. After watching this video you’ll probably want to dance for awhile then relax and watch the 80’s classic “The Never Ending Story”.

Hope you enjoy the video!

LiSA a Pop Rock Goddess

Risa Oribe(織部 里沙) better known as LiSA(an acronym for Love is Same All) is one of my favorite Japanese singers. She’s best known for her work on Angel Beats! as the second vocalist for the fictional band Girls Dead Monster. She lends her singing voice to the character Yui. “Ichiban no Takaramono (Yui final ver.)” is the song that made me an instant fan of LiSA. The first time ever hearing the song it was an emotional experience since the song is very sad and touches your heart. Every time I have watched a live YouTube video of her singing this song by the end of the song she’s in complete tears.

She made her first solo appearance in the Japanese music scene in April of 2011 with her mini-album Letters to U. She composed the track “Believe in Myself” and she wrote all the lyrics for that album. She released her first solo single “Oath Sign” in November 2011, which was the opening song for the anime Fate/Zero. She finally released her first solo album in February of 2012 called Lover”s”mile. She released her second single in August of 2012 “Crossing Field” which was the first opening for the anime Sword Art Online. Her third single “Best Day, Best Way” will be out next month on April 3rd.

I’ve been following her music since I heard her sing for the anime Angel Beats! All of her music is fantastic to me, she puts so much emotion into every single song and performance. One of my favorite things about her is her positive outlook on life. I have been reading her blog for a little over a year now. Everything she talks about in her blog always make me smile and laugh literally out loud. She has a great love for her fans and always talks about them in her blog and shows off all the lovely gifts they have sent her from cards, candy, and Toy Story collectables especially of Woody her favorite character. Her personality is absolutely awesome and I hope one day I can meet her because we both have similar outlooks on life.

My other favorite thing about her is her amazing fashion sense. Her style on stage is absolutely kawaii(cute in Japanese) always wearing cute tutus and tights. She is a huge fan of fashion and is always talking about the next seasons clothing and not being able to wait to wear it. It’s very cute! Her style is very Harajuku but also has a very rock inspired look to most outfits. She also likes designing clothes and hopefully one day have her own fashion line in the future.
