"Welcome to the new age of Cyberspace Artists"
Flusay Girls is an online global group that creates and performs their own original songs and music videos inspired by popular Japanese and Korean music.
Jelly Heroine/Jelly Villain is a dance training team under Flusay Girls headed by FG member Yaima-chan. This group primarily focus on dance covers. Jelly Heroine is the Japanese dance cover unit and Jelly Villain is the Korean dance cover unit.
Other units of Flusay Girls include Chibi Sailor School, 2Smile and Flusay Girls NaYaHo.
Flusay Girls is an online group of idol fans that have come together to write their own original music and choreography as well as create an opportunity with a "do it yourself" attitude to those who live in countries with no opportunities for aspiring net idols to come together and create their own opportunities and content.
The Group began on Januray 27, 2010 When Flugel (Nanami Uehara) created a fansign for her best friend Lindsay Whitney on myspace, who commented "This looks like an album cover" in reply Flugel said "Yeah lets make our own band!" and that was that. Flusay was born.
The name "Flusay" comes from Flugel and Lindsay's names Flu-gel & Lind-say = Flu-say.
Flugel had just started Jpop dancing and had posted her first full video on March 7, 2010 which then inspired her to expand the group beyond Flusay and create Flusay Girls, the online group that writes their own music in Japanese and English plus creates original choreography to go with it.
The main inspiration behind the group was DANCEROID (a popular dance cover group on youtube) and the Cruel Angels Project (Beckii Cruel). At the time there was no such thing as a net idol group and there were no rules or guidelines for them to follow but that didn't stop them from creating was essentially was the worlds first independent international net idol group.
In the beginning there were no managers, no contracts, no budget, no training, no rules or guidelines The girls simply had a goal to create music and content inspired by the artists they loved and to bring entertainment and happiness to all who watched them and to help other people who shared that dream to bring it to life!
Flusay Girls is driven by a strong passion and that is the key as to why it has lasted throughout the years and will continue to do so for many more.
March 09, 2010 Flusay Girls YouTube was created and The First new member was none other then Velonica who became sub leader and Japanese lyrics writer for the group soon followed by: Uxi a talented parapara dancer.
29th of March 2010, Flusay Girls uploaded the first of a series of audition videos that would recruit the first wave of new members ending on July 25 2010.
April 25th 2010, Flusay Girls released their first instrumental track with choreography to their first song Shiawase Kimochi (幸せ気持) Under the group name 2smile a subgroup composed of members Flugel and Velonica.
Velonica wrote the Japanese lyrics to the song which when translated to english means "Happy Feeling". This song was originally composed in English by Flugel writing about the friendship between her and member Lindsay who although never actively took part in the groups activities was one of the main reasons the group even began. A CM version was uploaded on May 27, 2010
June 8th 2010, Flusay Girls uploaded a choreography video to their CM song "Nyan nyan matte matte" in English "meow meow wait wait!"

2nd of July, 2015 Flusay Girls released their single "No More Salvation" as a digital release on bandcamp including a lyrics video and an 8-bit version. This was the debut track of member Juju.
We chose this date to release our single because in numerology the number 8 is a lucky number for prosperity (2+7+2+0+1+5=17 , 1+7=8) and the song talks briefly about divination and fortune telling so we enjoyed bringing that aspect of it into the release date of the single.

The release date in numerology is a number 9! (1+9+0+9+2+0+1+5=2+7=9!) which is a number of conclusion, the end of a 9 year cycle and the start of another. This date was thought to start a new age in Flusay Girls with a fresh start new direction and purpose as was agreed by the members.
This was reflected in the MV itself with a retro Flusay Girls feel going back to the very original theme images of multicolored stars representing each members colour.
