Sorry, but next to Kis-My-Ft2, no boy band name looks bad anymore :D
rebirthreborn 28th-Feb-2013 03:02 pm (UTC)
I had the same opinion as OP but if any people out there who do not know JE in general, 'Kis-my-Ft2' = 'kiss my foot too' which doesn't make sense linguistically to 'bullet train'.
airavu 28th-Feb-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
eevaleena 28th-Feb-2013 03:12 pm (UTC)
I agree! I mean, "kiss my foot too"? That's worse than this!
wasabisushi404 2nd-Mar-2013 08:25 am (UTC)
same with JE's Mis Snowman. I don't understand a lot of JE boyband names.
xanithofdragons 28th-Feb-2013 03:39 pm (UTC)
I still think Sexy Zone is a more ridiculous name.
iusta_rum 28th-Feb-2013 04:02 pm (UTC)
Sexy Zone is a very ridiculous name!!! and is very hentai too xDD
taciturndream 28th-Feb-2013 08:25 pm (UTC)
Ah, I just came here to say that. Nothing can beat Sexy Zone, especially if the group started with an eleven year old boy. -_-
doramaonna 1st-Mar-2013 07:44 pm (UTC)
I wanted to say that too! Kids with average age 12-13 with that name?! Wtf?
vanlindda90 4th-Mar-2013 09:31 am (UTC)
hahaha I remember my brother clicking on a link I was watching on Youtube with SEXY ZONE as the title and he thought I was watching porno.

It's even more ridiculous when it turns out to be kids in bright red glittered costumes with that name.

came here to make the exact same comment
inachan89 28th-Feb-2013 12:17 pm (UTC)
Those songs sound catchy,i like Train
chokingday 28th-Feb-2013 12:49 pm (UTC)
They're cute :) The songs are pretty OK too.

I think the name's fine. But then, I'm a fan of Mis Snow Man - my standards are probably low.
yuma_daisuki 1st-Mar-2013 02:52 am (UTC)
Hi five Snow Man fan~~~♥

But it sucks that it's now just Snow Man and noon boyz D':
kimiko1387 28th-Feb-2013 01:45 pm (UTC)
Their logo is nice though so all is forgiven.

I want to learn the dance for Secret Express. *wiggle*
karmeejane26 28th-Feb-2013 02:08 pm (UTC)
i discovered them a week ago. and i like them actually, but I sometimes get the kpop feels.
they have a different orientation. 2 backsingers and 5 frontdancers. :>
cugami 28th-Feb-2013 02:40 pm (UTC)
I thought I was the only one getting the kpop feels XD
mikarocker 28th-Feb-2013 02:53 pm (UTC)
Why does it sound like these songs were recorded in the bathroom?? Terrible sound quality
Either way the dancing is pretty good, not sure about the music xD

ohprecioustime 28th-Feb-2013 05:08 pm (UTC)
already stanning....just kidding

need more male idols to defeat the JE hegemony

plus this company has been successful with Momoclo, now they need to dispense as much energy with this group...tho their name is dumb...most idol groups safe a few names are ridic anyway

pumpkinskin 28th-Feb-2013 05:32 pm (UTC)
I love when group members are assigned representing colors, it's so cheesy.
love323able 28th-Feb-2013 07:49 pm (UTC)
I wanna like them. but i don't
shake body is pretty catchy tho
mmgg123456 28th-Feb-2013 08:40 pm (UTC)
oh crap, theyre all younger than me.
liime_arix 28th-Feb-2013 08:53 pm (UTC)
I've seen worst names come out of JE and they're good, I like them.
crystalluvshun 28th-Feb-2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
you think that's the lamest name? 1 of my favorite Japanese bands of all time used to be called 'Doggy Bag' in the beginning, that's a much lamer name -_-" personally, I think 'Bullet train' in comparison is not too bad a name.

volatilewind 28th-Feb-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
Some of them are pretty cute and I've seen worse group names, but what I managed to watch was really unimpressive. Hopefully they'll improve.
nozo_rin 28th-Feb-2013 11:32 pm (UTC)
I find the entire thing... real awkward...
The dance for policeman is just bad and the cameraman needs to get fired
surekee 28th-Feb-2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
I feel like it is so K-pop~ish in a bad way >.
shiharipanda 1st-Mar-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
uia!! Really not bad!!
Even checking their age, they sill looking like 14 years boys hahahaha I liked more the dance version videos, which they aren't eating flowers or trying to be sexy (creating a pseudo pedo feeling) LOL

And their name... the logo is horrible, but definitely Sexy Zone is the worst name ever hahahaha
yuma_daisuki 1st-Mar-2013 02:57 am (UTC)
As much as I'm a JE fan, I must say this group dances better than many JE groups! (If only JE would hire a better choreographer...)
londonshowers 1st-Mar-2013 08:00 am (UTC)
look at the three on the right rocking that ahjumma hair
roshajoley 1st-Mar-2013 11:45 am (UTC)
I like DISH//, also new boyband under Stardust Promotion

sexyzoner69 3rd-Mar-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
