According to a popular Japanese magazine "JUNON", it seems that Fairies will have their own TV show called 原宿キラキラ学院 (Harajuku Kirakira Gakuin)! It translates to "Harajuku Shining School". Harajuku is a really popular part of Tokyo. The brodacast will start from April 1st (17:00~18:00).

There are three features to the show.
1. Instead of doing their usual singing business, they do karate, gymnastics, etc.
2. The members cover pop songs from the 80's that hit the charts before they were born (Madonna "Like A Virgin", Eternal, TLC, Kylee Minogue, etc.)
3. They report the latest fashion trends of Harajuku for junior high school students
Ito Momoka (14) said "We thought karaoke is very useful for our performance!! For example, the thrust and roundhouse kicks in karate are can be useful training for the trunk, and the breath control is useful when it comes to singing. It's full of useful things! We hope we can learn more useful things for our activity as artists through this show!!"
Okada Keisuke (43) from the comic duo "Masuda Okada" will take responsibility for the MC.

I'm really looking forward to this new show! It's great they're getting media attention, and this will certainly lead to more popularity and fame.

Edited with correct spelling of TV show.

Maybe because I'm used to Hello Project where the groups get next to zero promotion... Fairies gets huge amounts of promotion, which I'm still not so used to I guess ^^; I love it though!

Well without being mean AKB48 take over on H!P, so now I have this feeling that Japananese people are tired of H!P... :?

H!P changed. Their old songs are so much better than their current ones.
Yes, even the old childish songs are better than the current mature songs. (*cough*berryz*cough*)

But the only group that I like within H!P is Buono! after yeah it's not really my stuff...like AKB it's not my cup of tea. I don't like cute groups they just make me laugh xD

You aren't being mean - it's sort of the truth, even though there are still fans out there who will support them till the end (like me) ;) Went to the Buono concert in Paris for example and they were treated like superstars, so just because they aren't in the spotlight right now doesn't mean they have been forgotten and all are tired of them :)

And well it wasn't my intention to discuss the quality of current H!P here xD

But AKB is different. Their songs are not all about being cute. My god, they have songs that make me space out and think about life.

Give them a chance. I used to hate them but then I realized that they're not the same as other female groups..

Honestly, I tried to like them I watched a lot of their performances but really I can't stand on this type group...I mean I can't stand on pitch voices...They are 20 and they sing like if they were 5...But if people enjoys it then it's their choice, we all have our taste, right ? ^^

Beginner is what made me a fan. I think kaze wo fuiteru's lyrics are better, though.

Have you watched this? I really don't think there are any girl groups (idols or not) in this time that do songs such as this.


or maybe Sakura no ki ni narou : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9hNT5ezcnc
or this song that makes me cry, it shows AKB's start: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWDoDH5thhM
Btw, they were nobodies.. Total nobodies. Their first live show had an audience of SEVEN fans only.. Tbh, if I were them, I would have given up and stayed at home. But they worked hard.. and look at them now.

p.s: if u liked beginner, you might like "River". (u'll find it subbed on youtube, uploaded by their official site)

They're wearing modern school uniforms, though. AKB's pv has a meaning.. This one is pretty plain.
Besides, many groups are trying to be like AKB, tbh.. Which is annoying. I miss 90s Jpop...

I wasn't referring to the PV, but to the song.

Found this video about the TV show by the way ^^

I just researched a little, and TV Hokkaido confirmed the airing of this show.
And thanks Cecile, you just backed the source up :)

The first episode seems to be about karate :P
