Run Girls, Run!, a three-member new unit who will join the upcoming new TV series Wake Up,Girls! Shinsho (New Chapter), held their first solo event "Ichi ni Tsuite Yooi Don! (On your mark, Get set, Go!) vol.1" at LIVE labo YOYOGI in Tokyo yesterday, September 24.
In addition to the cover songs of their older sister unit Wake Up, Girls!, such as "Tachiagare" and "16-Sai no Agape," they performed their debut song "Kakeru x Kakeru (Kakeru Kakeru Kakeru)" in the end of the event (Kakeru means run in Japanese). While its CD release schedule has not been yet announced, a sound-only preview video for the song is now available on Avex Pictures' official YouTube channel.
The song is written by Natsumi Tadano (Wake Up, Girls! unit songs), composed by Satoru Kousaki (Tekken series, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), and arranged by Keiichi Hirokawa (MONACA).
