Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku is a 9-girl idol unit produced by Star Child, the company who unleashed Momoiro Clover Z to the face of the world.
Despite a deliberate emphasis on very approximate singing and dancing, Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku (a.k.a Ebichuu) is expected by many idol industry observer to be the next big thing and have their ‘break’ during this year.
Their connection with Momoiro Clover Z, energetic live performances and a batch of catchy pop tunes will certainly help them achieve that. It is all I can wish them anyway.
For this spring, Ebichuu released a single called Ume (plum) as a fun twist on the usual sakura-themed song every idol unit has to sing from march to may. As a parallel with themselves being the ‘plum tree’ of the idol industry while more successful units are certainly the ‘sakura tree’.
A nice catchy tune released with a poor music video :
