Three new Satoyama units have debuted at this year’s Hinamatsuri’s festival that took place at the end of last month. These units are:
Triplet (Okai Chisato, Kudo Haruka, Takagi Sayuki)
Sato no Akari (Sato Masaki, Katsuta Rina, Uemura Akari)
Odatomo (Kanazawa Tomoko, Oda Sakura)
It seems that they focused more on the newer members of Hello Project when creating the groups. Okai Chisato is the only older member that is participating in one of the new units.
I haven’t personally listened to any of their songs yet, but I am excited to see what kind of songs they will sing.
In my opinion, Tomoko and Sakura are some of the best singers in Hello Project, so I hope that they will get a song or ballad that really emphasize their vocal talent. I think that their voices will blend well. Chisato, Sayuki and Haruka are also good singers so I am interested to see how well they perform their songs. Masaki, Rina and Akari are a really random grouping of girls. I have no idea what to expect from this unit, but I am optimistic.
Their single, “Aa, Subarashiki Hibi yo / Dream Last Train / Kodachi wo Nukeru Kaze no You ni” will be released April 23rd.
