Were you shocked when we reported about “OJS48“? Well, there is another group that may surprise you. The “idol” group is called “SAMURAI ROSE“, which consists of ladies in and around their 40s. Surprisingly, the youngest member of the group is 34 years old, and the oldest one is 58 years old! (the oldest one is not really “around 40″, but she passed the audition because she is still “around 40″, mentally.) In addition, the members are regular ladies with various occupations, such as the president of companies, nurses, chefs, etc.
SAMURAI ROSE used to be a 5 single mothers group, but after they debuted in February, they were avalanched with many applicants who also wanted to join the group. Therefore, they held auditions, and will now become a big group with 40 members.
They will debut as major group on October 6th, with their debut single “Rouge to Martini“, and before their debut, an event to celebrate their major debut was held on October 2nd. They performed their debut single as well as PRINCESS PRINCESS’s masterpiece, “M”, which will be included in the single as a follow up song, in front of 220 fans.
By the way, they are not produced by Akimoto Yasushi who created OJS48.
