L to R: Kanon Fukuda, Ayaka Wada, Yuuka Maeda
So Tsunku, decided for one last hurrah, decided for ONE more anime-tied unit consisting of 3/4 of S/mileage (why Saki was left off beat me) but hey. They were brought together to promote Hime-chen! Otogichikku Idol Lilpri. They also voiced some of the characters in the game so it was like the Kirarin groups in idea. They lasted only two singles before the anime ended which meant the group was also put to sleep (and plus Yuuka graduated, so no comeback in store).
Style of Music: Given that they’re in outfits from the anime, the group was really anison and the music mirrored that aspect by being cute and really shoujo-esque.
Here’s the PV for their debut single Little♡Princess☆Pri…boy did they take cosplaying up here >.<, BTW, if you click the link, this PV was uploaded on the S/mileage channel too >.>!
Overall: Ending off Tsunku’s love of anime groups, Lilpri never really made much sense to me. I mean, I don’t know what it was with Tsunku and his love for these 3 ladies from SCE! to S/mileage to this group…it was really tiring me out because back then I loathed Yuukarin and Ayacho’s vocals and then slamming them to such a cutesy setting with Nyon was just too much. I mean I’m not fan of any of their 4 songs TBH. Although having S/mileage’s “Otona ni Narutte Muzukashii!!!” on their first single was kind of cool. Still it was kind of a useless group (and really these songs could’ve been JUST FINE with S/mileage especially at the time where they were still bridging from being an indies group and a major group…so ugh…
