So, being a huge fan of Ishikawa Rika and Yoshizawa Hitomi, I was absolutely THRILLED when I found out that there was a new concert tour for the amazing group, Ongaku Gatas. This group hasn't gotten too much recognition since its start, but it has an amazing lineup. Three MM OG (even though KonKon's not on my top list of idols, she's still fun), the great Satoda Mai, and some of the best H!P Eggs (even though they're not all in H!P anymore), especially Nocchi and Sengoku Minami.
And then I found out about their latest single, "READY! KICK OFF!". Oh. My. Goodness. I love this song. It's upbeat, fun, and what I love about Gatas. It's like Come Together never happened (though I do like that song) and we're back to Yattarouze and 1st Goodsal.
Then I found this:
