Idoling!!!'s Second Anniversary

Today marks the second anniversary of the start of Idoling!!! and their TV show. To kick off the group's third year of activity, their web page has been redesigned. Check it out:
Idoling!!!'s Web Site

There will also be some changes to Idoling!!!'s TV show. Starting on November 3rd, Idoling!!! and Idoling!!! Nikki will switch places during the week on Fuji TV 721 and CSHD. So, for the group's normal 17:00~17:30 time slot, Idoling!!! Nikki will air on Monday, and Idoling!!! will air on Tuesday through Friday. The time slot for Idoling!!! Nikki on Fuji TV's standard broadcast channel will remain on Friday.

Also, Fan-sama Request!!! will be replaced by Onegai! Onegai! Fan-sama!!!, which is a revival of the old Onegai! Fan-sama!!! segment. Since most episodes do not feature all of the group's members, each Onegai! Onegai! Fan-sama!!! topic will be used for an entire week, which should allow each member a chance to read their chosen fan messages.

Idoling!!! Fourth Single Update

Last month, it was announced that Idoling!!!'s newest song, Tokimeki Dreaming!!!, would be used as the image song for the Robo Japan 2008 event, and it was widely assumed that this song would be used as the main track for Idoling!!!'s next single. But, it was recently announced on both Idoling!!!'s TV show and web site that Tokimeki Dreaming!!! would be on the next single, but it will not be the main track. The main track of the group's upcoming fourth single actually has yet to be announced.

It is possible that the single will have two main tracks like their first two singles (Ganbare Otome (Warai)/friend, Snow Celebration/Moteki no Uta), but it is more likely that Tokimeki Dreaming!!! will be a coupling track on the single along with Lemon Drop.

Thanks to Ayabie for the tip.
