I'm going to do something a bit different this time by writing two short profiles, for the idol groups Links and Shamrock. And yes, there is a link connecting them.
Links is a five member idol group from Fit One, which formed in March 2012. They have performed at several idol events including TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2012 and 2013, and will be at this year's TIF as well. Links have released three singles so far and contributed a song to a game soundtrack. I don't have a lot of information on them, so I'll let their music do the talking. Here's a song named "Homenobi ☆ Ja Panda".

Fit One Profile
Yuisa and Arisa are also members of Shamrock, a group that also includes Konno Yuuka of Aither. Shamrock debuted on April 26, 2014 during an Aither concert. Shamrock will be contributing songs to an upcoming movie. No details on the movie have been released yet. There isn't an official Shamrock photo, but I found this on Twitter.
The Shamrock live video won't embed, so click here.
I really like the songs from both of these groups, so I hope they will find a lot of fans!
