ChocoLe new idol unit with Idoling’s Hashimoto

Watanabe Entertainment recently formed a new 3-member idol group called ChocoLe, and it has already been decided that they will make their CD debut under Avex this December.

ChocoLe consists of Idoling!!! member Hashimoto Kaede (14), gravure idol Takahashi Kurumi (14), and fashion model Tamagawa Ramu (14). Their debut single, “Milk to Chocolate,” will be the new ending theme song for the popular anime series “SKET DANCE” from October onward.

French Kiss and the pillows perform themes for “SKET DANCE”

Shinohara Kenta’s manga “SKET DANCE” has an anime adaptation coming up this spring, and the artists for its theme songs were revealed on Monday. AKB48 sub-unit French Kiss will be handling the show’s opening theme, while rock band the pillows is in charge of the ending.

“SKET DANCE,” which is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump, is a shonen manga about a three-member high school club known as the “Campus Support Group” that deal with random problems that come up around campus.

Both French Kiss and the pillows were natural choices for the show’s theme songs. Starting with the third episode, French Kiss member Kashiwagi Yuki is voice acting as Rumi, the sister of the lead character Bossun. The main characters also form a band called The Sketchbook that does a performance of the pillows’ well-known song “Funny Bunny.”

The titles of the theme songs have not yet been announced. More details will be revealed before the anime premieres on April 7 on TV Tok
