A new ‘dress up’ idol group called Houkago Princess, also known as HouPri for short, will be making their debut in August. Since fans will be able to pick all of their outfits, it literally turns them into real-life dress-up dolls. The group consists of seven members: Odagiri Nana (21), Chiba Sakino (20), Miyashita Mayuka (18), Kishitani Yuki (16), Yamaguchi Mai (16), Noda Hitomi (15), and Yumeka (14). HouPri will not have a leader but a student council president, Odagiri Nana, since ‘houkago’ means ‘after school.’
Their first single, “Houkago Princess ~ Oshiete Kudasai! ~,” will be released on August 3rd, followed by a debut live performance at the Shinseido head office in Ogikubo, Tokyo. Check out the members’ self-introduction clips below!
