Shanadoo that are Marina Genda, Junko Fukuda, Chika Shibuya and Manami Fuku. They are a Japanese Eurodance group who are formerly produced in Germany and now produced in Japan. The majority of their recorded works on their first two albums have been Japanese covers of a German dance group, E-Rotic. Shibuya, Fukuda and Fuku had worked together before the Shanadoo project had started as a part of Avex Trax's promotional unit, Vivace. Vivace's activities included work as race queens, bikini pin-up modeling and even a few Japanese Eurobeat-style recordings for various Avex Trax music compilations such as Girl's Box. Genda was later added to the group as Lead Vocalist once the Shanadoo project went into project with noted Eurodance Producer, David Brandes. Brandes' production credits include acts such as E-Rotic, Bad Boys Blue and Vanilla Ninja.

Their first album "Welcome to Tokyo" was released on June 16, 2006 through one of Brandes' record labels, Icezone Music, Shanadoo's first single, "King Kong", a cover of E-Rotic's 2000 work of the same name, later recovered in 2005 by Hinoi Team in Japan, was met with great success. Shanadoo's works were exclusive to Germany and other European markets, such as Austria, until December 2006, when avex announced that a then untitled debut album would be released on February 28, 2007 in Japan.

In January of the same year, it was announced by Icezone Music that Shanadoo's fourth single "Think About", will be released on March 9, 2007 in Germany, would be original content instead of a Japanese cover of E-Rotic. Their second album was on December 7, 2007 in Germany released. Shanadoo has remained active in 2008, with their activities shifting from Germany to Japan.

On December 18, 2008, after a brief mention on Shanadoo's official blog in November 2008 of a new song "No Crime" being performed at recent live events, the Nintendo Wii video game Dance Dance Revolution Full Full Party was released in Japan featuring a short edit of the song. On January 29, 2009 an official soundtrack for the game is scheduled to be released that features a full version of the song. "No Crime" is produced by Japanese video game sound producer, Naoki Maeda, and is the first of Shanadoo's recorded works to not be produced by David Brandes. On November 25, 2009 Shanadoo released their third studio album entitled, "Launch Party!!!". « hide
