That Awkward Moment When…

19 11 2012

Tanaka Reina’s entire band is more attractive than her.  Oops.

But in other news, remember when I thought this band would mean her graduation?  WELL IT DOES.

And I am BEYOND ecstatic!  More Ayumi please!   I am thrilled that I will never live to see the day where she leads Morning Musume.  With a couple new hopefuls in these two new generations of oddballs, with more to come soon I’m sure, Morning Musume really has its first chance to become something different since the big graduations of 2010.

I disagree that Tsunku has placed her in the top 3 MoMusu vocalists, presumably next to Goto Maki and Takahashi Ai, because I would put several Musumes before her, such as Nakazawa Yuko, Abe Natsumi, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Fujimoto Miki, Niigaki Risa, Linlin, and Kamei Eri.  Seriously.  But alas, for some reason Tsunku just adores Reina.  Which makes me all the more happy she’s leaving.

Countdown to her graduation, anyone?

If you can watch that video to the end, I commend you, friend.  This will be a short post.

I absolutely hate this PV and song. Read the rest of this entry »

There She Goes, There She Goes Again

The last remaining 8th generation member of Morning Musume, Mitsui Aika, announced her graduation today.  It will be in two short weeks so she can graduate with leader Niigaki Risa on the last day of the groups’ Spring concert.  She may or may not continue activities with Hello! Project.   Read the rest of this entry »

See? It Works

15 04 2012

If you guys haven’t been watching the Oricon Charts, today Morning Musume’s 49th single, Renai Hunter, outsold top artists Perfume and Sexyzone.  Although Morning Musume has been in third until today, the top three has been these artists and it’s quite a feat that Morning Musume was able to outsell them.  The single has already sold 33,000 copies in just three days (more than Pyoko has sold at all) with two more left until the chart week ends.  While Morning Musume may not be able to come out on top with the rough competition, top 3 is still very impressive.

All this is to say: See?  Good music SELLS.  This PROVES it.  No ducks, no crappy over-used melodies.  Something unique and modern and catchy with good outfits and flattering styles.

Dear Tsunku, please keep it up this time. PLEASE.

30 Day Idol Challenge 29 ~Best Leader~

1 03 2012

The second to last day of the 30 Day Idol Challenge is who you think is/was the best leader of an idol group.

I’ve seen this one coming for a couple days, so I tried really hard to find a leader that wasn’t the obvious, stereotypical choice that everyone would choose for this.  I thought a lot of really great leaders, such as AKB48’s Takahashi Minami, SNSD’s Taeyeon, SHINee’s Onew, Super Junior’s Leeteuk, 2NE1’s CL, Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki…. but really, in comparison, they just didn’t measure up to the best idol leader of a group I’ve ever fangirled.  I’m sure by process of elimination you might have a pretty good guess who it is.  I’m sorry guys, I really tried to be original, but I just have to be honest here, it’s…
