Tochiotome25 to release 5th single

Last year I was randomly listening something, probably MomoCloZ, from Youtube when I saw an interesting looking video on the Recommend-list. I clicked, listened it, and listened some more. I found more music videos and I just... I couldn't stop. The following day I listened some H!P music but I just had to go listen that group I had found the earlier day. The group was Tochiotome25 (とちおとめ25).

Since then I have been T25-fan. When I found the girls, Madoka had probably just graduated and the group was 8nin group. Ai, Kurumi, Yayoi, Karin, Eri, Mao, Hitomi and Yurika. Kurumi graduated on June 30rd and Yayoi November 25th. I bought one copy of each single they had released so far. I fangirled when I heard they will release their 4th single, Wagyu Fire!!:
I still haven't bought Wagyu Fire!!. It's been a while I have ordered music.

So nowadays the group is 6nin  with one cadet and five kenkyuseis. I'm looking forward to Momoka (cadet) to debut as a real member. Or atleast to appear this 5th single music video.

I can't - or more like I don't want to - say who is my favourite member. I love them all. Though I must to admit  I find Yurika the cutest. She tweets a lot of cute photos of herself.
stop

Yurika tweeted today some news: Tochiotome25 will release their 5th single on April 22nd! (Earlier she tweeted a photo with Karin and wrote something about rehearses. It was a sign for new songs!)

Single is titled as Yu (ゆ) and it will be released in 4 different editions: Type Yu(ゆ), Type Ke (け), Type Mu (む) and Type Ri (り).


Yukemuri. Hmm.

I put the Yukimuri (ゆけむり) on Google and here's what I got:
Red-white trains?!?!? Well Tochiotome25 outfits are red-white too so I wouldn't surprise if they sing about... trains. Or have those trains on the music video. This group has random videos if you haven't noticed yet. Watch Wagyu Fire!!. You have no words after that.

Here's the tracklist:
ゆ[type ゆ]BZCM-1070

3. ゆ(Instrumental) 
4. FLOWER WAY(Instrumental)

ゆ[type け]BZCM-1071

Types Yu and Mu have completetely same contest but different covers. Same goes with Types Ke and Ri. But hey, 3 new songs! It will make 21 songs in total.

I wanted to share this happiness of Tochiotome25. They have 5 music videos and their concerts are usually just appearing on Tochigi's little events. Girls sing live and they work hard.

I'm not able to explain a consept of Tochiotome25 but here's quote from their official website (it has English version, too!)
Tochiotome25 promotes the agricultural products of Tochigi in Japan. Tochiotome is the name of a strawberry grown in Tochigi prefecture. It is the most cultivated strawberry in Japan. The Tochigi strawberry grown in summer is called Natsuotome No. 25. Therefore, this Idol group’s name comes from these two things… first, there is the strawberry, Tochiotome, and then there is the name of the summer version, "Natsuotome No. 25.” These two strawberry’s give the group its name… Tochiotome25. The group not only advertises Tochigi’s agricultural products in Japan, but also promotes them in China and all over the world. Tochiotome25 is actively promoting the popularity of Tochigi dairy and agricultural products, folk crafts, technology, sightseeing as well as trying to promote investment opportunities for the world market.

Their promoting works. I really want to go Tochigi.
