AAA (トリプル・エー Toripuru Ē?, Triple A), a backronym for Attack All Around, is a 7-member Japanese pop group signed to the label Avex Trax which debuted in September 2005. The name has the meaning of challenging everything,[1] and the group is marketed by their label as a "super performance unit".[2]

The group was formed through Avex's auditions and originally consisted of five young men and three young women who had acted in commercials and had experience being back dancers for other Japanese stars, such as Ayumi Hamasaki and Ami Suzuki.[3]

History[edit]

2005–2006: Early days and debut[edit]

AAA was originally planned to be a six member group. Initially, it included the five male members Takahiro Nishijima, Naoya Urata, Shuta Sueyoshi, Shinjiro Atae, Mitsuhiro Hidaka, and Misako Uno as the only female member. Avex later decided to add two more female members, Yukari Goto then Chiaki Ito. All eight entered the agency through auditions and underwent training in the Avex Artist Academy, the record label's talent training facility. As the songs "Blood on Fire" and "Friday Party" were prepared before their debut for six members, the two girls are only heard in the refrain.

In April 2005, Avex officially announced the debut of the group with seven members (excluding Ito), and oldest member Urata as the leader. AAA officially started their activities as a group in May.[9] On 15 June, Ito was added to the group. AAA debuted on 14 September that year with "Blood on Fire" and were received well due to the song being used as the theme song of the live action Initial-D movie.[10]

In their debut year, they received the "Best Newcomer Award" at the 47th Japan Record Awards.[11] From September to December they released a single each month plus a photobook and their very first album, "Attack", in January 2006. With all the releases and promotional activities, the group did not have time to perform their songs live. However, as each of the singles tackled different genres, they did relatively well on the charts.

In June 2006, AAA's official fan club "AAA Party" opened its doors.[12] Uno, the sole female lead singer, starred alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar in the Hollywood version of The Grudge 2 which opened in theaters October 2006.[13] After releasing mini album "All/2" on September 13, 2006, AAA released their second studio album "All" on January 1, 2007. With the exception of three new songs, the songs on "All" had been previously released as singles with music videos throughout 2006. The album's sales were a success although less than its predecessor "Attack".

2007–2009: Media mix and acting[edit]

In 2007, AAA had another theme song tie-up with Kamen Rider Den-O, "Climax Jump", which they released as a single under the temporary name "AAA Den-O Form". The single sold well and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) for the shipment of 100,000 physical singles and 100,000 full-track ringtone music downloads each, making it their most successful single to date.[14][15]

The group's members gradually started delving into acting jobs, giving them more mainstream exposure. Their 14th single "Kuchibiru Kara Romantica/That's Right" was tied-up with television drama serial Delicious Gakuin, which starred members Nishijima and Atae.[16]

On 11 June 2007, it was announced that Goto would be leaving the group permanently, citing her health problems and deciding to focus on recovery.[17] With her departure, AAA became a septet. Shortly after, the group made their first venture overseas with an appearance at Otakon 2007 in Baltimore, Maryland.[18] Urata and Ito appeared in a movie for the first time, Heat Island which opened in theaters 20 October 2007.

AAA scored their first Oricon weekly number one single in 2008 with "Mirage",[19] and the group released their first compilation album "Attack All Around". They did not release an original studio album as a group for the year, but the five male members recorded a special mini-album, "Choice is Yours", and released it under the AAA name on 18 June.[20] In October, the drama serial Mirai Seiki Shakespeare which was a modern retelling of Shakespeare plays, started its broadcast. All members of AAA played main characters in the drama. Nishijima also manifested an interest in acting during the year as he acted in multiple stage plays.

Nishijima received his first starring role in film, playing the lead character in Love Exposure, which released in January 2009. His acting in the film was critically acclaimed, earning him the Sponichi Grand Prix New Face Award of the Year 2009[21] and was named Best New Male Actor at the 83rd Kinema Junpo Awards.[22]

The group released their fourth album "DepArture" on 11 February 2009, and the album peaked at number four on the Oricon charts, the first time the group achieved a place within the top five for a studio album.[23]

After a string of moderate hits throughout 2007-2008, AAA started a successful era in 2009 with their album "Heartful" and all of its preceding singles debuting in the top three. For the first time ever, they were able to guest on the popular music program Music Station, to perform "Hide Away".[24] "Hide Away" also represented a new era of sorts for the group, as Ito started to sing more lines, joining Nishijima, Uno and Urata as lead singers.

2010-present: Larger success[edit]

In 2010, AAA's double A-side 24th single "Aitai Riyū/Dream After Dream ~Yume Kara Sameta Yume~" topped the Oricon weekly charts in May 2010, becoming their second number one single on the charts. The single was hyped as the comeback work of composer Tetsuya Komuro,[25] which helped in promoting the single.

Due to the popularity of "Aitai Riyū", they were invited to make their debut appearance on Kōhaku Uta Gassen that year, greatly heightening the group's exposure. In December, member Urata released his own single Dream On featuring his good friend and label mate Ayumi Hamasaki.[26] The single reached number one on the Oricon charts, raising his own profile and that of the group.

With the exception of "Call/I4U", Komuro continued to work with AAA through to 31st single "Sailing". All of the songs on their sixth album "Buzz Communication" were composed by Komuro. In 2011, they released their second compilation album "#AAABEST" and it went on to become their best selling album at the time, as well as becoming their first number one album on the Oricon weekly charts.[27] Starting from "Call/I4U", the group also gradually shifted away from the "lead singer" position and more equal singing opportunities were given to all members.

Their 32nd single "Still Love You" marked a departure from Komuro as they began to work with other composers again. On 22 August 2012, AAA released the album "777 -Triple Seven-", so titled to represent the seven members, their seventh album, and the group's seventh anniversary since debut.[28] In October, AAA's brand new variety show titled AAA no Kizuna Gasshuku started airing on TV Asahi and YouTube.[29] At the end of the year, AAA was invited to perform at Kōhaku Uta Gassen for the third year running.

In 2013, the group kicked off a new nationwide tour titled "AAA Tour 2013 Eighth Wonder" on 20 April. It is the largest scale tour the group has attempted to date, taking place at 41 venues with an estimated 150,000 fans attending.[30] In May, it was reported that AAA no Kizuna Gasshuku which had ended, recorded over 10 million plays on YouTube, and the second season began airing.[31] Furthermore in July, it was announced that there would be a third season of the show and AAA would be shooting the show abroad for the first time, in Singapore.[32]

On 18 September, the group released their eighth album titled "Eighth Wonder".[33] The album went on to become AAA's first original studio album to top the Oricon charts.[34] The group's music video for "Koi Oto to Amazora" claimed top spot for most number of views in September on YouTube, for the Japanese music category.[35] AAA closed out the year by performing the song at Kōhaku Uta Gassen.

On 14 January 2014, it was announced that AAA had been appointed the PR ambassadors for the fifteenth anniversary of anime One Piece, and provided a new song titled "Wake up!" for its opening theme.[36] On 17 May, the group began their first all-arena nationwide tour, "Gold Symphony", their biggest tour yet with an estimated attendance of 200,000 people. They also announced at the concert that they would release "Wake up!" as their 41st single on 2 July 2014.[37]

Official symbols[edit]

Member colors[edit]

The members of AAA have representative colors assigned to them. They are orange for Nishijima, purple for Uno, green for Urata, yellow for Hidaka, blue for Atae, pink for Sueyoshi and red for Ito.[38] Before Goto's departure, her member color was pink and Sueyoshi's was black.

Mascot[edit]

The official mascot of AAA is called an "A~panda" and its image is of a panda with the letters "AAA" on its belly. It is colored in the official member colors. The mascot is frequently used in the group's tour goods, turned into soft toys, figures, straps and many other items for amusement. The A~panda life size mascot is often seen walking around at concert venues. In March 2013, a special pop-up concept store opened in Ura-Harajuku selling limited edition AAA goods, with the store styled to look like a room belonging to A~panda.[39]

[edit]

AAA has a logo mark, frequently used on tour goods as well as their CD and DVD releases. The first edition of the logo mark was used from April 2005 until 20 October 2011, with "#AAABEST" being the last work to use the design. The second edition of the logo mark was introduced 21 October 2011 and is currently still in use. The first work to use the design was "Charge & Go!/Lights".[40]
