ATARASHII GAKKO! Reportedly In Consideration For Kouhaku

As October rolls around, so too do rumors of who will get invited to NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen. Today, it was revealed that the girl group ATARASHII GAKKO! might get their first invitation to the annual event.

Formed by MIZYURIN, SUZUKA and KANON when they were still in school, the group seriously picked up steam in 2020 when they were signed with overseas label 88rising. They released OTONA BLUE that year, which became a major hit after it took off on TikTok this year. The various members are also in major variety programs, particularly after the song became a major TikTok trend with their head swinging dance.

The group will also go on tour in the United States this year. Given that they have continued to pick up sponsorship and partnership after partnership, their bubbling popularity, the reception from the public, their growth throughout the year and the way they fit the year’s announced theme for the annual program, borderless, the group looks like a strong contender for a first time appearance.
