Rounding out the A-sides of this triple debut release, College Cosmos bring to your their promotional video for “We are not such things like symbols (記号なんかじゃない私たちは, Kigou nanka janai watashitachi wa)”. In floral lavender dresses, the girls choreograph themselves in a high-ceilinged box of a sound stage. Working with lyrics from Kodama Ameko and a Ohashi Riko composition, College Cosmos work through a PV that’s mostly a dance shot with the latest Hello! Project fad graphics: translucent geometric overlays and split screen black & white. The spectacle of the group of girls in their flowing choreography definitely catches the eye. I’ll just say it: these college girls look GREAT. Halfway through “Kogou nanka janai watashitachi wa”, we get a variety of of camera angles of the girls lined up in forced perspective and in static positions. Conceptually simple, this final PV from the College Cosmos debut gives us a good look at the members and their choreography without the burden of a forced narrative. College Cosmos’ first single “Yume wa Ijiwaru / Kotoba no Mizu wo Roka Shitai / Kigou Nanka ja nai Watashitachi wa” goes on sale March 6, 2019.
College Cosmos (カレッジ・コスモス) is an idol group made up of female university students which was formed in October 2018 as a joint project between Space Craft Group and UP-FRONT GROUP.
The group was formed in search of a new type of idol to replace the present image of “idol (アイドル) = guuzou (偶像)”—guuzou being the Japanese word for “idol” which has the connotation of religious or cult-like worship. Therefore College Cosmos will not have the unspoken “love ban” rule. The members will balance work and their studies with the aim of becoming known as an intellectual group of idols. Notably, College Cosmos’ large lineup includes Country Girls member Yamaki Risa
