girl groups aren't really big in Japan.
i'm not sure but i don't think i can see any girl group in the Oricon charts.
it's gonna be a waste of investment, they could instead use it for JE groups.

but if they can make girl groups a fad in Japan, who knows?


that's right ... the only girls up there are only solo artists

yeah. and JE is so protective of the boys from any rumors.
imagine the endless rumors they'll create if they start adding girls into the company.
must just give them headache.

I'm gonna go off topic a bit but... uhm... ^ ^ Not exactly true?

<<<< Them for example. Perfume is a three-girl group that has made it to the top 10 singles chart with their most recent releases. They also ranked #23 in the 2008 oricon album charts (that's 7 ranks above the first JE group FYI).

Speed? Before they disbanded, they sold over 20 million copies in just three years after their debut I believe. Even today their latest release peaked top 3.

And as most people here have said, there's Hello!Project. Like someone said, they don't dominate the charts as much as JE does but they definitely do make it to the top portion of the Oricon...

On topic... I don't think they should either... I'm pretty sure the crazy-die-hard fans wouldn't like girls hanging around their idols as well..

Well the whole point of JE is so Johnny-san can produce young BOYS to become famous. I think JE is fine the way it is. All guys and stuff. ><

Found on Wikipedia:


Females and the Jimusho

In the 1980s, females were accepted into the agency and through JOHNNY'S Junior Special as a side project called Orange Sisters. The three females (Yoshitake Kayoko, Sakai Tae, and Yoshikawa Kiyomi) were considered as Female Juniors, yet nothing happened with the unit. Today, there has not been a single woman accepted in agency since then.


Looks like there's no choice here, folks. (I think that's what she meant by "and if I'm not mistaken they have attempted to make a girl group but they didn't continue")

Not a chance. Sorry.
