tsubaki factory was formed in 2015 with 6 members (adding 3 more before their debut and making them a 9 member group), and unfortunately are very underrated. this is likely because they were not as talented as kobushi factory (their sister group) was when they debuted, but nonetheless they are still going strong! they're known for having a stable lineup and a very traditional idol image, the latter not typical for h!p. despite their rocky beginnings, they have grown into a powerful group with fun performances, beautiful songs, and fun personalities.
it kinda makes me sad how underrated tsubaki is, considering they're a fun group with consistently high quality music, but despite that i still love them a lot. even though they don't have the same edge as other h!p groups, they're still really cute and always deliver quality with their music, performances, and everything else.
