The college girls get a return to the scene with their second single, “Shiawase no arika wa dochira desu ka / Watashi kakumei (幸せのありかはどちらですか/わたし革命)”. Titled in English as “Where is the place where I can find happiness?” opens with the sun filtering through the trees and a solo from Hello! Project member Yamaki Risa singing a gentle pop song in the collegiate atmosphere. The girls look wistfully into the future in the picture perfect campus. Certainly, the group takes it’s theme seriously as these girls look to life beyond the idol scene.
In the second of the double A-side PVs, the College Cosmos girls get a more rousing tempo as a combination of busy piano work competes with acoustic guitars in the “Watashi kakumei” arrangement. Using an instagram account as the framing device, the PV snaps shots of the girls as they rehearse and study. Although that description sounds a bit like a stalker wrote it, “Watashi kakumei” feels like a pure expression of idol and idol life. The group is really here to cheer you on life, right?
“Shiawase no arika wa dochira desu ka / Watashi kakumei” goes on sale October 9, 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
