I think I just threw up a little in my mouth...

I'm so sick of these quasi-loli groups trying to ride on the heels of the failed and thankfully gone, Morning Musume.

Thank god you don't live in Japan then, because you would be inundate almost 24/7 with such idol groups on almost every advert and tv show.

I do live in Japan! And trust me, I do not watch much Japanese TV... except for shows like Abarenbo Shogun and a couple of the older detective shows. Unfortunately, those shows are normally on in the late morning or afternoon when I'm at work.

Whenever my mother-in-law is watching one of those quasi-variety show (because they really aren't variety shows) with boy groups like Arashi or SMAP (though Katori Shingo is pretty funny), I try to be cordial and stick around. But normally I end up leaving the room halfway through.

And those Karaoke shows... UGH!!!

Any 24-Hour B-list show... Double UGH!!!

The Red and White show... Triple UGH!!!

I feel your pain. I have pretty much abandoned Japanese tv due to the whole idol craze on almost every channel.

AKB48 are far more popular than Morning Musume ever was though. They're one of the highest selling groups in Asia at the moment.
ChrisW  +   774d ago
Yes... and more than half of AKB48 (and other idol groups) fans are middle aged men who know all of the dance moves and songs.

I briefly saw some members of SKE48 (Nagoya idol group) performing at a local mall near Toyota City, Aichi when they were first starting out... and watching the fans was very disturbing! There were even a couple guys wearing the same outfits that the girls were wearing!!!

I guess I wouldn't look down on such groups so much if there weren't so many middle-aged pervs worshiping them...

Then again, J-Pop isn't anywhere as good as Pop music in America... However, I really don't like Pop, R&B, or Hiphop (except for Beastie Boys).
