They’re not Hello! Project, they’re not TNX and I don’t think they’re Tsunku produced. However they are related somewhat to Kusumi Koharu as they co-star in Kirarin Revolution and the single they are releasing is under the pseudonym of the characters they play á  la  Tsukishima Kirari starring Kusumi Koharu (Morning Musume)

SHIPS is composed of Ide Takuya and Kanai Shikou and their first single TOKYO FRIEND*SHIPS will be released under the zetima label on 2008-06-25. The tracklist and additional information will be added to this post as it is available.

I’m not sure I’ll follow this group but reporting on their debut is fine, right?
