Fans of Kemono Friends already know the joy of PPP, the five penguin Friends with their own idol unit. And come this April -- on World Penguin Day, approprinately enough -- the group will be debuting idol-style with their very first full CD.
PPP in the Sky! will feature both new and familiar songs performed by Emperor (Ruka Nemoto), Princess (Mikoi Sasaki), Gen (Kyouka Tamura), Hululu (Ikuko Chikuta), and Rocker (Aina Aiba). So far, solo versions of the theme "Welcome to Japari Park" are poised to be released on the album for all five of the girls.
Still to be recorded:
-- "Oozora Dreamer"
-- "Welcome to Japari Park" (PPP ver.)
-- "First Penguin"
-- "Watashi-tachi no Story"
In addition, there will be a new solo piece for each member, and two new PPP group songs.
To celebrate the album's release, select stores will be including gifts along with the CD. Some shops will be including a "fan club pen," while others will issue "platinum tickets" featuring each of the idol group's members.
PPP in the Sky! drops on April 25 -- World Penguin Day -- and will cost 2,800 yen for a regular edition and 3,200 yen for a limited-edition first run release.
