Fairies go full idol15 March, 2013 by Chad
I should had suspected something was amiss when the members of Fairies had started to introduce themselves with idol-y catchphrases the last time I had seen them. Last month, avex’s edgy R&B and hip hop dance group Fairies surprised us with the announcement of a new idol themed sub-unit, the group’s first.
Consisting of the group’s three youngest members, the group is formed by Fujita Miria, Shimomura Miki and Hayashida Mahiro, calling themselves M Three (Mスリー). Fairies’ 4th “M”, Ito Momoka is notably absent. Innuendos aside, I can think of at least one adhesive company that wouldn’t be too thrilled.
M Three’s first single Yumemiru Dancing Doll (夢見るダンシングドール), due later this month on 27th March is a retro inspired, sickly sweet pop tune with visuals straight out of the 90s. Some avex humor or the Fairies’ attempt at breaking into the wota market? Whatever the case, M Three’s Yumemiru Dancing Doll appears to have replaced this season’s regular Fairies single.
Last week the unit uploaded their full video Yumemiru Dancing Doll online.
There’s also a surreal alternative dance shot version.
