Tempura Kidz are a Japanese pop dance group that consists of 4 girls and 1 boy (P→★, KARIN, NaNaHo, AO and YU-KA). The group are signed to Asobi System, the same company that manages some of the most well known Japanese music stars like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Yun*chi. Tempura Kidz’ tracks are released under the Sony Music Japan label.
Backup dancers for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Some of the dancers from Tempura started their career as background dancers for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and I guess there career sort of springboarded of that.
Bejitarizumu music video
The first song that featured them in was the song Bejitarizumu (ベジタリズム) where they were dancing around in vegetable costumes. This video came up on YouTube around the end of 2012.
Cider Cider music video
After that they were also the main dancers for the video Cider Cider, produced my Ram Rider, which came out early of 2013.
Debut single One Step
Their debut single One Step was released on 2013.03.06 which again features them as the main artists. On the CD single you will also find the only digital track Strobe, which came out a couple of months earlier and was then only available as a download track. Both of the songs One step and Strobe are used as end theme music for the anime Chou Soku Henkei Gyrozet.
The future for Tempura Kidz
Whats next for this group? Well, they are signed to the right management company since Asobi Systems has big influences in Japanese pop music, meaning the group can end up working with other stars that are also signed to Asobi Systems, which means they dont have to look far to get the right sort of help with their next hit song. The group are still very young at the moment, so who knows what the future will hold for them? But I’m sure we haven’t seen or heard the last of Tempura Kidz.
