SCANDAL


Scandal (stylized SCANDAL) is a Japanese pop group. Proclaiming themselves as “The Most Powerful Japanese Girlie Pop Rock”, they are composed of four high school girls from Osaka, Japan: Haruna Ono, Tomomi Ogawa, Mami Sasazaki, and Rina Suzuki. SCANDAL is very energetic, mostly due to the fact that Ono, the eldest and leader of the band, shares lead vocals with the other three members, in order to not have a focus on one girl in particular and to give each time in the limelight.

Formation and Shiroten Days


SCANDAL was formed in August 2006 by four high school girls. The girls, HARUNA, TOMOMI, MAMI, and RINA, met in an Osaka vocal and dance school. Shortly thereafter, they started performing street lives every weekend at Shiroten in Osaka Castle Park. Their popularity steadily began to grow and they started getting offers from clubs in Osaka and Kyoto.

Eventually, over one hundred fans began to consistently attend the live performances Scandal performed on Tokyo’s streets and in Shiroten, Osaka, causing the band to become noticed more in the eyes of the Japanese public. In August 2007, Scandal seized the opportunity to participate in a special event at Shibuya Club Asia, a highly recognized and respected club in Shibuya. It was during this time that record label Kitty Records (a subsidiary of Kitty Films) first asked the four girls if they would like to have their music recorded with them. Several months later, the girls had worked out a flexible independent agreement with Kitty in partnership with Tower Records, and SCANDAL started to become more mainstream.

Indie Days


SCANDAL signed with indie label Kitty Records and released three singles exclusive to Tower Records in 2008. The first, “Space Ranger”, ranked #2 on the Tower indie charts and the other two, “Koi Moyou” and “Kagerou”, ranked #1. In March, they embarked on the “Japan Nite US tour 2008″, touring six major cities in the United States. They also performed at “Sakura-Con”, one of the largest anime conventions in the United States. In July, they preformed in front of 10,000 people in France’s “Japan Expo” and also Hong Kong’s “Ani-Com” in August. SCANDAL concluded their indie career with the release of their first mini-album, YAH! YAH! YAH! HELLO SCANDAL ~ Maido! SCANDAL Desu! Yah Yah Yah!~.

Debut


2008 continued to be an eventful year for SCANDAL. In October, they made their major debut on EPIC Records Japan with their single “DOLL”. This has given them more exposure, including appearances on mainstream music television shows like MUSIC STATION. The group released their second major single “SAKURA Goodbye” in March 2009 to commemorate TOMOMI and MAMI’s high school graduation. The song is a new version of their indie song, “SAKURA”, only heard live. The next month, their then upcoming third single “ShoujoS” was used as the tenth opening theme for the anime BLEACH. This brought their popularity up even higher as the single ranked #6 on the Oricon charts when it was released two months later in June.

Tie-ups


SCANDAL’s music has been featured in a range of popular media: their first single, “Space Ranger”, is the opening to Kyoto Sports Weekly, and their second single, “Koi Moyou” is the main theme of the movie Corazon de Melon. Their song, “START”, is the theme song for Star Ocean: Second Evolution and is available on the game’s soundtrack. More recently, “DAYDREAM” was featured on a tribute album to the classic multi-genre Japanese band, Judy and Mary, and their song “ShoujoS” is the tenth opening of the anime series BLEACH.

They have also been featured in commercials, promoting a line of Cecil McBee cosmetics, for Nike, featuring four different colors of their footwear, and were chosen to represent Pocari Sweat in posters and in the promotional video for their song “BEAUTeen!!” as part of their summer 2009 campaign.

Anime


An interesting note about the group is the unique way in which they chose to promote themselves. Since they are fans of Japanese animation and manga, they wanted to be represented in animated form, turning each member into an animated character. The animated SCANDAL is featured on Japanese Television, and a series of promotional videos on the band’s website.
