The “Period of Plastic 2 Mercy” Continues! Pla2me Changes Name & Adds 4 New Members!
After an announcement which was unfortunately timed on April Fool’s Day, the era of the duo known as Pla2me came to an end with the departure of founding member Mari Mizuta on May 31, 2015. A few hours after Mari’s final performance with the group, Pla2me changed their name to POP, which is an initialism of “Period of Plastic 2 Mercy”, and announced 4 new members.
Saki Kamiya (ex-BiS) (https://twitter.com/kamiyasaki_POP) remains in the group and is joined by:

Saki Kamiya’s introduction: “She’s good at singing and the kind of girl that doesn’t know what to do in front of the camera.”

Saki Kamiya’s introduction: She’s the fairest member and has slender collarbones that look like they will break.
POP will be releasing a 10-song album, which will include re-recorded versions of songs from Pla2me’s singles on August 4, 2015 and hold their first solo concert “Period Of Plastic 2 Mercy”at Daikanyama UNIT on August 9, 2015. As you can see from the pictures releases so far, the image of the new group is very different than the colorful one of Pla2me. Since they share the same manager as BiSH (Junnosuke Watanabe), the similarities between the 2 groups before the members’ faces were revealed are hard to ignore. Perhaps there are plans to reveal their faces once the new members get 4,000 followers like how it was for the members of BiSH? Wait and see!
