PureBoys is a Japanese actors unit and pop group[1] under endorsement of popular celebrity blogging service AmebaBlog. PureBoys was originally conceived as a promotional subsection of Ameba featuring young actors with blogs hosted under the service, therefore members are all not signed to one talent management company or recording label. Each member is individually managed by his respective agency, and the group's records are released through indie label Pullup Records.
