Naaboudoufu@Nana takes on the electro sound in her second single, Magical Lip KISS, following the likes of popular groups such as Morning Musume and AKB48 shortly after they released their own take on the auto-tune sound.

Being the new Idol group on the block doesn't seem like a fun thing, and sometimes it can be a little difficult for new up-and-coming Idols to make a name for themselves, especially when their PV is basically a copy of Guardians 4 PARTY TIME, but I think that i☆Ris are going to be fine.

Watanabe Mayu's third single release, Hikaru Monotach is definitely nothing like her previous two singles which ultimately sows a new side to the girl whom I dubbed as an 'anime singer at best'. Well, she has of course proven me wrong with her new song and PV, showing that there is so much more to her than generic Idol cuteness and her beautiful, creepy little smile...

Bump.y have been around for a few years now and are made up of five girls who also act and model as well as sing. Recently, they have set to change their image from sweet, innocent looking girls into fierce K-pop wannabe's, and their latest single shows just what direction the girls are going in.

Nogizaka46 have yet to really impress me. Debuting with a rather bland and forgettable first single, and then releasing an equally terrible second single, it makes me wonder how well they are doing in sales..
