CAMPAIGN
Raising awareness of the Toreishi sisters since 1998......even though i started this campaign in January of 2000.

This page is dedicated to the lovely and talented voice actress who portrays Yayoi Toreishi in this series and my favorite seiyuu, Yuri Amano... IT'S ALL HER FAULT!!!!!!!!!

IDOL DEFENCE FORCE HUMMINGBIRD... A SERIES OF FOUR OAV EPISODES THAT RAN FROM 1993 TO 1995 THAT TOLD THE VERY OFFBEAT TALE OF FIVE IDOL SINGER/FIGHTER PILOTS SISTERS. ANYWAY, UNLIKE BUBBLEGUM CRISIS WITH IT'S POWER-ARMOR CLAD SINGER/MERCENARY (WHICH, BY THE WAY, WAS PRODUCED BY YOUMEX , AS WAS HUMMINGBIRD), DIDN'T ANSWER AN AD FROM SOME WOMAN LOOKING TO START A TEAM OF FEMALE MERCENARIES. AND, UNLIKE MACROSS 7, THE GIRLS DO NOT SING AND PLAY A GUITAR WHILE THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A DOGFIGHT. HERE'S HOW THIS COMBO OF SINGER/SOLDIER CAME ABOUT.

YA SEE, ONE DAY THE JAPANESE SELF-DEFENCE FORCE DECIDES TO PRIVATIZE IT'S AIR FORCE. NOW, MOST CORPORATIONS WOULDN'T TAKE A CHANCE ON SUCH A RISKY VENTURE... UNTIL THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY HAD A BRILLIANT IDEA... ONE DAY, SOME RECORD EXECUTIVE SAID "HEY! LET'S MAKE A TEAM OF IDOL SINGER PILOTS!" THE REST KIND OF EXPLAINS ITSELF.

IDOL DEFENCE FORCE IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT HAD ONE OF THE FIRST SEIYUU SINGING GROUPS THAT SOLD THE SHOW. MOST GROUPS, LIKE DoCo AND THE GODDESS FAMILY CLUB, WERE SUCESSFUL MAINLY BECAUSE THE SERIES THAT SPAWNED SUCH GROUPS WERE SUCESSFUL. AND MOST OF THESE SAID GROUPS DIDN'T FORM UNTIL THE SERIES HAD GONE THROUGH MANY EPISODES. (INFACT, IF I REMEBER CORRECTLY, DoCo FORMED IN ABOUT THE 3RD SEASON OF RANMA 1/2). HUMMINGBIRD, ON THE OTHER HAND, WAS FORMED AS A SEIYUU SINGING GROUP BEFORE THE FIRST EPISODE WAS EVEN STARTED. WHICH IS ANOTHER REASON I LIKE THE SERIES. THE MUSIC. IT'S OF A QUALITY MUCH HIGHER THAN MOST ANIME SONGS, REACHING INTO THE CATATGORY OF J-POP (WHERE YOU ACTUALLY FIND THE GROUP LISTED AT TIMES.)

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. HERE'S THE REAL REASON I'VE STARTED THIS PAGE. AS OF YET, NO AMERICAN COMPANY HAS EVEN ACQUIRED THE RIGHTS TO THIS SERIES. AFTER SOME OF THE CRAP SOME OF THE DISTRIBUTERS HAVE BEEN PUTTING OUT (ANYONE REMEMBER "OUTLANDERS", OR ARE YOU STILL TRYING HARD TO FORGET THAT PRODUCTION?), IT'D BE GREAT TO GET SOMETHING NEW AND REFRESHING OVER HERE!

FINALLY THE PETITION HAS COME BACK TO THE INTERNET!
JUST CLICK THE BUTTON TO SIGN THE PETITION.

SPECIAL THANKS GO TO J-PIKACHU FOR ALL HIS HELP AND LITERARY EAGLE FOR BEING THE FIRST SUBMITTER BESIDES ME. THANKS ALSO TO DAVID NOLEN FOR GETTING ME A COPY OF HUMMINGBIRD. FINALLY, THANKS TO ALL OF THOSE WHO PUT THEIR NAMES ON THE PETITION.
