I’m actually really excited for this unit. The member lineup is fantastic, and it looks like they might have a sort of “rocker” feel to them, or at least that’s what I’m hoping. I’ll defenitly be picking up their first single. (And I’m really glad Yui is in this. I’ve really been liking her a lot recently, at least enough to put her in my top 5, so this news is awesome!)
