UUG(2) will have their first real performance at Idol Yokocho Natsu Matsuri on July 8–9…



That's when we should know for sure what this is. The event's own website, however, lists them separate from UUG(仮)…

From the official channel, apparently the first installment of a new UUG(2) digest series…



From the announcement of auditions through the latest rehearsals. If you've been ignoring UUG(2) so far and want to catch up, this is the video to watch.

From their official channel, the MV for "UPPER DISCO"…



UUG(2) are only background dancers in this MV, as they were when they all performed this song at SATOYAMA&SATOUMI…

viewtopic.php?p=220995#p220995

…which makes sense since that was probably around the time they recorded this MV. As such, we still don't have a real answer on if/when/how UUG(2) will be integrated into the group.

Also, is it just me or are the vocals oddly muted in this song? It's bad enough that it's difficult for me to listen to.

A tour digest from Sendai…



Given the name of this tour, the tone of these digests, and a second generation waiting in the wings, it seems that one or more graduations are imminent.

Also on their official news blog…

Also, a pointless musing: from what I've seen in the group's behind-the-scenes videos, Ayano Sato is effectively their costume mistress. I wonder who will take that responsibility after she graduates.
