Yes, here is the information, as spotty as it is on the upcoming release from BiS. You read that correctly….. BiS. Not BiS 1st, 2nd…… 6th. Lets see what is going on.
So tonight was the BiS “I don’t know what will happen TOUR FiNAL @ZEPP TOKYO” and the final results of the BiS.LEAGUE voting. Let me tell you, the show was great, what happened after, well……..
Well, it is about that time again. I know that the results of the last BiS.LEAGUE vote have just taken effect but we need to get ready for the next one. BiS (1st and 2nd) has just announced the release of the next single….. and it is a something else.
The results are in!!
Some folks have been following the BiS.LEAGUE competition intently, some not so much. The results my come as a surprise to a good portion of the fan base, or maybe not. I for one am pretty happy with the way it turned out.
Maybe you might not know but BiS 1st and BiS 2nd are not static idol formations. Under they new system there will be changes and transfers between the groups. This is what BiS.LEAGUE is all about. How about a bit of a recap on how it works and a look at the kick off for this round.
So, the great experiment begins. Which group will you prefer….. BiS 1st or BiS 2nd. I personally can’t pick, you may not be able to either. Lets have a look. Oh, there is some album art as well.
I have kind of been waiting for this announcement, it always find it interesting what names idols will be given. Is that weird? Anyway, BiS 1st and BiS 2nd have announced their full lineups and I want you all to have the information.
Well, we finally have all the information on the upcoming release from both iterations of BiS, well minus cover art. We also pretty much have a handle on how members will be placed and how they will be moved from group to group. Now that there is an even number to put between the two groups it will be a bit easier.
