Well, it might be good news. I’m not really sure what’s going to happen with them, but in April, 4 brand new fanclubs will begin under UFA.
The first will be, of course, Hello! Project (which depressingly will only consist of Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, C-ute, and Mano Erina… but wait! Where are the eggs?!)
The second is (and this is the hopefully good part) what will be called M-Line, aka Elder Club minus a few. This will consist of Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori (wut?), Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari (!), Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Konno Asami (!), Ogawa Makoto (!), Fujimoto Miki, Tsuji Nozomi (!!@!), and Ongaku Gatas (Satoda Mai?, Noto Arisa, Sengoku Minami, Korenaga Miki, and Sawada Yuri). I think this means a new concert unit, which is really exciting and I would be super super excited if all these artists started releasing music. So happy. I would probably explode if I saw a Yaguchi Mari solo single.
The third is Ayaway, a fanclub for Matsuura Aya, which is both good and bad. Good because she won’t die. Bad because a) I was hoping she’d switch to Avex, b) she probably won’t be perfoming with M-Line, which is boo, and c) she’ll probably still get boring music. D:
The fourth and final is probably the funniest of them all. And yes, that’s just me being a jerk. But it’s a Melon Kinenbi fanclub called… *chuckle* Melon Kinenbi. MAN. These people are full of brilliant ideas for MKB. Honestly, I can see like… 1,00 people joining this. At max. If that, even.
Overall, YAY more Elder Club! I just hope they actually do something! The only super disappointing thing here is… where’s Erika and Yui?
