1. Group Profile

AAA (just read Triple A) or ATTACK ALL AROUND, is a Japanese pop band by 7 members created in 2005 under the avex trax label which debuted on September 2005. Their debut single, BLOOD on FIRE, was used as theme song for Initial D live action movie series. Their first full-length album and first mini-album, both titled ATTACK, were released on January 1, 2006.

It was announced on the 11th of June 2007 that Goto Yukari had retired from the group due to health problems.

Super performance unit of seven members, of both boys and girls. Debuted with single BLOOD on FIRE released on September 14, 2005. In late 2005, AAA won 'Best New Artist' in the famed Japan Record Award. For the 1st anniversary on September 13, 2006, the group performed a live at Nippon Budokan, the most prestigious venue in Japan, mobilizing 10,000 fans.
Along with being a singer and dancer, each member are expanding their fields in a new stage: TV hosts, modeling, and acting in Hollywood movies, TV dramas, and theatrical plays. Uno Misako appeared in Hollywood film "THE GRUDGE 2", for example. Nishijima Takahiro played the lead role in Japanese film "AINO MUKIDASHI" (directed by Shion Sono) released in 2008 and in 2009 was the lead role along with Fukuda Saki in a dorama named Ghost Friends. Ito Chiaki played the lead role Hagumi Hanamoto in Taiwan drama "HONEY AND CLOVER". And in 2009, Urata Naoya went solo with an album entitled TURN OVER.

On September 9th, to celebrate the 2nd anniversary, AAA was able to put out another live at Nippon Budokan. The show was a success, selling out the box office.
2008 began with a new single, MIRAGE. It debuted at number one on the Oricon charts and sold around 25,000 copies its first week on sale. That makes AAA’s highest charting single but it also makes it one of the lowest number one debuts ever.

AAA had their first Oricon weekly number 1 single in 2008 with "Mirage." AAA also appeared on the theaters and Nishijima manifested interest in the acting. He appeared in the film Love Exposure, which was the first film for him to play the main role. He performed cross-dressing in the film and eventually won the Sponichi Grand Prix New Face Award of the year 2009 on January 19, 2010. AAA's new single "Aitai Riyu/Dream After Dream (Yume Kara Sameta Yume)" topped the Oricon weekly charts in May 2010, becoming their second number 1 single on the charts. New single Makenai Kokoro is set for an August release. The song is similar to the their HEARTFUL era, Uno and Ito sing the majority of the song while Hidaka provides backing rap vocals.
