World’s First Snaggletooth Girl Group



You may have heard of the recent dental trend in Japan called tsuke yaeba, where women get their canines capped to get a crooked set of chompers. If so, you might have guessed that a snaggletooth girl group couldn’t be far behind, and here they are: TYB48.

Eighteen-year-olds Nana, Mio and Rika were chosen from a field of applicants recruited by a dental clinic specializing in tsuke yaeba. Girls with crooked teeth are generally thought to be cute in Japan, and with TYB48 as fashion trendsetters, organizers hope to encourage young women not blessed with overlapping fangs to take have their teeth cosmetically altered.

The group will have their debut concert in Akihabara on April 30th, and concert goers will also be able to pick up copies of their first CD, frighteningly titled “Mind If I Bite?”

you are right, but im sure they wouldnt use the 48 number if a famous girl group didnt have it in their name. I mean, between so many numbers and you have to pick specifically 48?...and why they even have to add a number to TYB. TYB (without the 48)is cute too.

I mean yes it's based on AKB8. But, idk, I've seen it so much I can't bring myself to actually care all that much?
