Introduction to Girl Group ManaMinaRisa


I decided to chance looking for an interesting Idol group by searching Google Images, and the 3-member Idol group ManaMinoRisa popped up, linking to the blog Pure Idol Heart, which actually posts a lot of Indie unit related posts. However, this isn't the first time I had actually seen this group - I actually stumbled upon their newest PV a while back, most likely by JPHiP, but had no interest in the group at all, because their new song was not to my taste. However, I am glad that I found them again. A lot of groups that I actually like now are groups that I dismissed beforehand, then returned to later by chance or accident. So hopefully this won't be the last I see of this cute group.

Some brief information on ManaMinoRisa - They are known as the 'little sister' group of Perfume, as they debuted from the same school, Actors School in Hiroshima. However, they don't possess the same vocaloid-like sound that Perfume have adopted, but portray a cuter image that is a lot more Idol-like. They debuted back in 2007 with their first single, IDOLDAMA☆C.

I'm not going to exactly class these girls as Indies Idols, however I don't see them around the web much, so I will post their profiles and videos here.
