Sakuran Bom Bom are another young group of idols that I’ve recently become acquainted with. They first formed on July 24, 2012, the year of the London Olympics, as their website’s bio says, by Yamagata Dance Studio MPF. Sakuran Bom Bom aim to be big idols by the time of the next Olympic Games in Rio. With all the competition out there, I wish them luck!
I’ve been watching some fan videos on YouTube as the group’s official channel has nothing but talking videos, some of which promote a single. The live performances are mostly good, although like many young groups their live act needs polished as they are occasionally making minor mistakes. Still, I like this group. Out of the fan videos I've seen, this one is as good as any.
Sakuran Bom Bom are scheduled to perform at the Jimodol Festa on March 9, 2014.
