Top Japanese Band You Didn’t Expect To Cover Your Favorite Anime Song

Scandal was formed in August 2006 by four high school girls. The girls, Haruna, Mami, Tomomi, and Rina, met in an Osaka vocal and dance school called Caless. Shortly thereafter, they started performing live performances every weekend at Shiroten in Osaka Castle Park. Soon, they started getting offers from clubs in Osaka and Kyoto. The band’s name originates from a sign near Studio Brotherz, a studio where they practiced in their early days. The studio is on the sixth floor of a building shared with other businesses, namely adult shops. The girls decided to choose the biggest sign among the shops, “Scandal” (スキャンダルSukyandaru?), as the name for their band.

(Insert : Nano my fav. singer also ! ! top song No Pain , No Gain(BTOOOM!) ; Savior Of Song(Arpeggio of blue steel); Born to be(Mahou Sensou) ) .
