The official YouTube channel for (currently) four-member girls unit AouP (abbreviation for Anime Katteni Ouen Project) has posted a 90-second short version music video for their upcoming 10th single song "Jitensha ni Hana wa Mau" (Flowers Dance Over Bicycles). The song is featured as the OP theme for the ongoing TV anime adaptation of Noriyuki Matsumoto's Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club manga series. The road bicycle racing-themed TV anime is now available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except Asia.
Their 10th single will be released in two editions on March 1. Also as reported, the unit will hold an open audition for its new member candidates, because two of the original members, Saori Ogino and Rina Sakura have stopped activities since last December. Ogino has her health issue and Sakura wants to concentrate on her study for a while. The deadline for the application is February 28. You can send your resume (with two photos) via this web form.
