Ex-Youtube Dancers "Dancing Dolls" debut (Mega post, kind of)

5 piece dance unit Dancing Dolls, which has racked up more than 10 million hits on Youtube, will be making their official debut on September 12 as a Dance&Vocal group (Not an Idol group!) with the doube A-side single “Touch -ASAP- / Shanghai Darling”. The single will include three tracks. Touch is the dance cover version of theme from the famous anime Touch, while Shanghai Darling is the remake version from Orange Range’s Shanghai Honey. Golden Bomber’s Kiryuuin Shou has also written a track, “Meromerobakkyun”, for the emerging group’s first release.

Dancing Dolls is formed by 5 high school girls from Osaka. The group performed a number of energetic street performance at Osaka Castle Park, and videos of those performance have been posted on Youtube and other video channels, catching the attention of many.

Their debut PVs "Touch -ASAP" and "Shangahi Darling" were posted here. I recommend you watch "Touch ASAP" PV first.

I'm a fan of their dance covers on youtube. Honestly, I felt really sad when they closed their youtube channel. Now I'm happy to know the reason they closed it. They're debuting! They were times when I thought (while watching them) "Japanese dancers are so fuckin' good, why can't they debut as music groups?!" So, I'm really happy that the youtube dancers "Dancing Dolls" got the chance to debut.
The girls used to upload their dance covers of Perfume, AKB48, SNSD, KARA, Big Bang, 2NE1 and many more. The only covers left on youtube are the ones that got uploaded by other channels. I have just uploaded their cover of Perfume's Laser Beam for you guys to watch.

Youtube Dance Covers:

Perfume- Laser Beam

SNSD- Mr.Taxi


4Minute - I MY ME MINE

SNSD- The Boys

KARA- Go Go Summer
