Avex has unveiled a new five-member idol group called Tokyo Joshiryu (also known as Tokyo Girls' Style). This is the first girl group created by Avex since SweetS in 2003.
The five members were revealed one per day, starting on January 1. On Wednesday, Avex officially launched the group's website, which finally includes a picture of them together. The group consists of leader Miyu Yamabe, Ayano Konishi, Hitomi Arai, Yuri Nakae, and Mei Shoji, who are reportedly between the ages of 11 and 13.
Tokyo Joshiryu is aiming to be active not just in Japan, but throughout the rest of Asia as well. They do not yet have a CD release planned, but their first official live performance will be on February 7 at Shibuya O-Nest. The group has already opened a blog, a Mixi page, and a Twitter account.
