Iketeru Hearts are under attack! Chased through the curved passageways of a particularly retro-futuristic residential complex, the girls evade lasers blasts until they finally make their stand with magical barriers and some flashy kicks. But, wait how did we even get here? On the outset, “Sparkle☆Power” puts the former Afilia Saga trainees on a rooftop dance with the glass walled complex as background. Iketeru Hearts look great in their choreography: crisp and well timed movements are complemented with slight puff of their red and white skirts. “Sparkle☆Power” plays idol pop (what did you expect?) accompanied with horns and a few fanciful marimba fills. The song is the ED theme to the TV anime “Pastel Memories”, which may or may not explain the imminent danger in which Iketeru Hearts find themselves. But based on just the PV, I’m not sure why anyone would want to attack Iketeru Hearts! “Sparkle☆Power”, the 7th single from Iketeru Hearts, goes on sale February 27, 2019.
Iketeru Hearts (イケてるハーツ) (formerly known as Stand-Up! Hearts) is a Japanese idol group formed in September 2014. It is a sister unit of Afilia Saga (now part of Junjou no Afilia). As Stand-Up!
