New one-off unit [BABY GAMBA]
A new one-off unit has been created, featuring Team A's Nakaya Sayaka and Team K's Tanabe Miku. Called [BABY GAMBA] after the mouse Gamba in the children's book "Boukenshatachi Gamba to Jugohiki no Nakama" by Saito Atsuo, the unit will be releasing a DVD single [Ee Janai ka] on September 14th 2011.

The single is themed towards children and in the PV, the girls will don mouse ears and tails as they impersonate Gamba. The dance is made easy to learn so children can dance along. Along with impoesonating Gamba, Gamba himself will appear computer generated in the PV. Here are some previews of it.
And a preview of the PV is up on AVEX's official YouTube Channel.
I guess since this is themed towards the young, that's probably why the song sounds uninteresting for me. Perhaps a comment from someone of that age range would help. I don't get either the reason why Nakayan and Tanamin was chosen as the Gamba Girls. But I guess part of the reason was because their talent agency is called Mousa? But if so then were is Nakata Chisato and Uchida Mayumi?
