Do you know Masked Girls or Kamen joshi?
There are many girls groups and all may look similar but this group is different clearly because they wear masks!
The masked girls is one big group of girls under the Alice project managed by the agency Kleeblatt inc.
They are one of so called "Chika Idol in Japanese or underground idol" groups (btw, "idol" means celebrity in Japanese).
"Underground idol" group is categorized as the one which use a small stage with frequent live events, are not on the major traditional media like TV and do not belong to the big agency, and their revenue depends on the merchandise such as CDs, T shirts, photos. One famous example of such idol is AKB48.
There are three main groups under the Masked Girls:
1) Alice 10ban
10 person metal group since 2011. The fans call them as Aliju o Juban for short.
2) Steam Girls
