Fairies, Passpo, and Idoling!!! Holds Auditions for New Members

Is more the merrier? With the immense popularity of AKB48 and SDN48, more and more girl groups like Fairies, Passpo, and Idoling!!! are adding new members.

It looks like having large number of members is becoming a trend in girl band groups nowadays. Visionfactory's new and young girl group- FAIRIES are having auditions to add to their original seven members. They are open for auditions for girls from 9 to 18 years old.

Moreover, nine-member girl group Passpo have already chosen 8 finalists from their recently held Passpo auditions. Passpo decided to hold an audition after Sakuma Kaho left the group. The new member/s will be based on fan-voting and will be announced on March 31st.

Lastly, Idoling!!! just had their auditions for their 5th Generation. They just release their latest single, Mamore! Mamore!, but the names of their newest members is yet to be announced.

With the upcoming graduation of SDN48, it is likely that there will be more auditions to happened.

What do you think? Is more the merrier in girl groups?

    Girls groups seem to audition really young... 9-18, seriously? 3rd graders? I know they want time to develop them or whatever, but AKB is currently more or less 16-26, and Kojiharu (almost 24) and Mariko (almost 26) are two of the more popular members. If you want to catch the wave before it's gone you can't be developing for 10 years down the line- yeah, looking at you momosu for getting rid of all your veterans and replacing them with 12-14 year olds.

    AKB system works because it basically lets them use senbatsu members with "fillers" (who, often are the ones who could actually carry the singing...), allowing them to perform for fans all the time and all over and yet still dominate or influence many other forms of media. Members 21-60 need the large sphere of influence and interaction with the popular ones in order to gain their own popularity and opportunity... and there's just not enough airtime to support too many groups.
