I love referrals! This one was kind of funny, because I mentioned yandoll in passing a few days ago (re: groups with very tall members), and I noticed that I hadn’t done a single yandoll post in a few months at least, which is a shame because, while they kind of suck at getting stuff onto YouTube despite performing pretty regularly, I do like to keep them in the Idols for Quarterly Check-ins category at the very least.

It had been on my radar to come back to Yandoll again because it’s been months since they last popped up in these parts, but everything I ever found was either old or of really low quality of something old.

In brief: Tokyo Candoll is a contest in Japan to decide which idol group will play on a big stage in Japan Expo (Paris). 92 contesters in february, 49 nowadays, and a few of them are well-known of this page.
