You can find an idol group that fits any interest these days!
Poppy groups like AKB48 and their offshoot groups, such as SDN48:
Horror themed groups like Alice Juben:
Of course, most idols are human or anime, but the latest craze is mannequins! The Ginzan Boyz is the world’s first-ever mannequin-miner idol group and they have 60 members.
Just who are these plastic idols? Well…The Ginzan Boyz is part of a clever marketing campaign by Asago City to promote the Ikuno Silver Mine and Ikuro Mineral Museum. And the handsome mannequins spend most of their days re-creating mining work for visitors.
While The Ginzan Boyz is a gimmick to get tourists to visit, the city put a lot of effort into the project. Local high schoolers provided backing vocals, and the mine will have “meet-and-greet” opportunities with the members.
So, who is the best Ginzan Boy?
