Back in October I wrote about a 14 year old girl from the Isle of Man – Beckii Cruel – who had won fame by dressing up and dancing along to anime credit music.
The glib prediction was that she’d be big in Japan.
Since then I can report she’d released a DVD – which hit the charts at position #8.
Beckii’s clearly getting pushed pretty hard; she’s now formed a band called Cruel Angels – or Beckii Cruel featuring the Cruel Angels.
Who are the Cruel Angels? Two more youngsters; Sara Cruel from Lyon, France and Gemma Cruel from Portsmouth, England. Not really sure if the other bandmates are really Cruel but it’s a nice touch.
The Cruel Angels sing in Japanese. I wish them all the luck! I suspect they’ll need it!
