Because it’s “kawaii”.
To this gaijin, the high-pitched speech/giggles of “kawaii” are ridiculously annoying. I’d prefer it if they just spoke normally.
I must be growing old and intolerant or something.
No. I haven’t seen it.
Aren’t they getting a bit long in the tooth to still be in the band? Or do they get kicked out in BabyMetal at all? I thought I read somewhere they started the group because the girls were getting moved out of the younger groups.
Oh, I agree with you. In Japan, the ideal woman is young, naive, and submissive. This is all reflected in the ‘kawaii’ look and feel of the idol groups.
@Woodman - I don’t know if what you read is true, but I could see it. You don’t see any long running girl groups, but there are boy bands that have been around for a loooong time (like SMAP who has been around for 25 years, if you can still call them a boy band now that they’re in their 40s). It’s not a pretty double standard.
At least these girls get their carreers extended by BabyMetal instead of retiring until they can by 18+ sex sym
Well, then. Here you go:
