Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru Group
'Black Diamond', is a Gyaru Circle for Tsuyome Kuro (dark-skinned) Gyaru on a nationwide scale. They are featured in the October issues of "egg", even "SOUL SISTER" and more. These girls are being showered with attention from everywhere in the media and have begun to expand overseas.
Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru have remarkably decreased in number in recent years, however they are making a comeback all over the country. In July 2012, 'Black Diamond' was formed with hopes of creating another "Tsuyome Kuro Gyaru" boom. This circle has grown into a group with over 100 Kuro Gyaru members in total, from northern Hokkaido, all the way to southern Okinawa, and they aren't only in Japan. To broaden the Japanese Shibuya Gyaru culture overseas, they have established the overseas branch named "black diamond international" worldwide.

They recruit members through facebook in English, and applications have been rushing in from all over the world, from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Russia and many more. They have grown into a big family with currently over 50 foreign Gyaru that have joined as members.
During "black diamond"'s second meeting, the Japanese members are interacting with the overseas members through the computer on facebook
The other day, during their second meeting, the English speaking Japanese members came in contact with the Japanese speaking overseas members, and communicated positively through the computer. Since many of the foreign Gyaru are unable to buy certain Gyaru items from Japan, the Japanese Gyaru are in the process of opening a mail order website aimed at overseas buyers.
Although they have only formed 2 months ago, "black diamond" has succeeded all over Japan and even in expanding overseas. These girls are continuing with their steady advance and it's likely that we won't be able to keep our eyes off of them.

Furthermore, Goto Kayo, the "Globe-trotter Gyaru Traveler", will fill the position of "black diamond international"'s advisor. She used to work as a Gyaru style apparel shop manager and was shocked when she saw foreign Gyaru all over the world on NHK's "Tokyo Kawaii TV". She was incredibly determined to "meet Gyaru around the world and become their friends no matter what!". She departed on her solo globe-trotting trip since March, and is promoting real communication with foreign Gyaru from 15 countries, a unique presence even among the Gyaru community.
