Ayaka Sasaki (Momoiro Clover Z ) releases Cutie Honey cover

Ayaka Sasaki, the pink member of Momoiro Clover Z has released her own cover version of the classic 70s hit “Cutie Honey”.

“Cutie Honey” was originally sung in 1973 by Yoko Maekawa, and served as the theme for the anime series of the same name. The song has been covered many times throughout the years, notably by Koda Kumi, GO!GO!7188, and TWO-MIX. The song even became a minor hit in South Korea thanks to Ahyoomee’s version.

Ayaka has been appointed the ambassador of the 2017 “Love Dance Festival”. This is a nationwide competition where idols perform their take on a song created for an anime series or film. There are no age or sex limitations, anyone is eligible to participate. Your own original choreography for the song is also encouraged, “Love Dance Festival” hopes to further spread the charm of idols nationwide all across Japan.

      Is there such a thing as a minor hit?

    • No.

      Momoiro members can dance, I give them that.
      Their singing style and vocals, on the other hand.


      • But loooooots of people are watching them at concerts as their concert venues are the Nissan Stadium & the Kokuritsu. Are they lip-sync most of the time? Honest question

        • Zetobelt

          No, they are not. That’s the principal difference of Momoclo with other idol groups.

          A good example been the ‘Tokyo Tower Power Amplifier Outage Incident’.

          “The rain that day prompted the power amplifier to stop functioning and
          stopped the music when they performed Orange Note in the first refrain
          part. The members were at first confused but then continued to sing in
          acapella to the end the song, including the instrumental tunes in which
          they replaced into “dandandan” onomatopoeia.”

    • hhhh

      It’s called “Idol Matsuri”, “Love Dance Festival” is a super-awkward translation.

      • guest

        The name is a pun. Written as 愛踊祭, read as “idol matsuri”. Arama translated the characters directly.
