Nagoya's favorite idol group to take Nagoya's favorite charity event

Nagoya's very own OS☆U Girls are excited to announce that not only will they deliver a super special performance at the Chubu Walkathon, but they are now official PR ambassadors for the event. So get hyped to see a lot more of them!

Want to know more about this group of girls?
OSU Idol Group
Idol group OS☆U was launched August 2010 in the Osu shopping district, said to be the biggest center of otaku culture in Japan's central Tokai
region. As of 2017, members range from the first generation through the seventh, and they currently operate as three teams. Auditions are now
under way for new eighth-generation members.

OS☆U ("oh ess you") got its start in Osu, and that's the locale that gave the group its name. OS☆U equals Osu and also "osu," a Japanese word
for "support and encourage." Whether for people, businesses, or endeavors, the concept driving OS☆U is to give support to people and things in a way that brings vitality to Osu.
The group begins live performances with a melody entitled Sending Ultra-hyper Genki Energy☆Osu! Osu! OS☆U!!! -– the OS☆U concept theme song.

Eight streets make up the Osu shopping district, and with the Osu Merchants Association's approval, OS☆U has assigned PR ambassadors known as the "Osu Osu Tai" to each street to serve as walking billboards. Along with taking part in a series of promo videos for the Akamon-dori
street ( https://goo.gl/la89Hq ), the group enthusiastically rolls out activities rooted in the local community -– walk anywhere in the Osu
shopping arcade, and you'll immediately find posters and other signs of OS☆U's presence.
The group is also involved in numerous tie-ups with municipalities, companies, and organizations, including Aichi Prefecture, the city of
Nagoya, and the Japanese Red Cross Aichi Blood Center. In 2013, when the impact of NHK's Amachan TV novel asadora (morning drama) series put the idea of local idols in the spotlight, OS☆U won the top spot in the "NHK On Demand Local Idol Ranking Battle," a competition carried out throughout Japan, becoming the official image character for NHK On Demand in 2014.
