I could see them going to Angerme, Country Girls, or MM. Although maybe not Ruru for CG, her voice wouldn't be utilized as much. If Maho doesn't come back, they would definitely want to fill that spot :/

I think having a 3 unit group again would be nice, but it's too risky, that's why it works better as shuffles. Plus they just had Tsubaki debut, they are probably going to wait before putting a new group together.

Buono! was awesome, but they were so different for so many reasons, they were members of established groups with a fan base, it was a very popular anime tie in, they were under ponycanyon and they weren't singing H!P songs, etc.

Listened through the test, and wow, I'm surprised. It was altogether much more pleasant to the ear than I expected. My thoughts on some of the worst/best:

 

The Good:

 

Spoiler

 

The Bad:

 

Spoiler

 

Thinking of Momohime and Kurumi in an acting troupe, I kind of imagine a group with them and whatever Engeki Joshibu girls may be left. And then they could be an acting team while also working as an idol group, in a Gatas Brilhantes = Ongaku Gatas kind of way.

 

I doubt it will happen like that, but hey.

That would be really interesting!!

 

Y'all... You don't think.... They're going to make Michishige's shtick a regular thing and make Takase and Kiyono the back-ups of it, like Horie was? Omfg that would be too funny.

 

Not to be rude but I would seriously be pissed if I was in KSS and that's what they offered me as my "debut"  :lol:

Considering you have girls like Meimi and Haruka leaving to persue acting and theater and UpFront does so many theater productions now with H!P and the m-line it was only natural that they find a way to keep the girls. They are bulking up there acting division and that's not a bad thing. It's a good fall back for the idol boom. At least I hope that's how it plays out. They'd be stupid not to see the potential they have.

UF expanding into an acting agency makes too much sense, and I can't believe they're just now pursuing it. It has the potential to increase their high-earning membership, and actors have the potential to keep earning for a lot longer than idols.

If I recall, they actually have an entire section of their agency devoted to acting. This Engeki thing isn't that noteable because they're not a major theater company. That's why they do so many plays with H!P groups.

Hm. I mean... I would've wished for Takase to debut in H!P with the trio they've chosen, but if she prefers acting and since it's true that an acting career usually lasts longer than your average idol career I guess that's cool too.

 

I just think it's sad since we usually see even less of their plays. They might do one or two plays a year, while as an H!P idol you have the two big H!P tours, single releases, tours and the countdown event. 

But hey, maybe it's going to be different.

Maybe they'd have them be part of the acting agency and then participate in the Summer/Winter/Countdown concerts? That could work. =o

I'm ecstatic for you, TicTac!

 

Although, I'm kind of disappointed about Momohime. I wish she was doing something fore full-fledged.

Here's that segment on its own video.... This was really interesting to watch, I really do wish they would release it in full =/

 

PS-- Kawamura deserves her debut. Did you see how she used every inch of her body? Whatta pro. Also of course I loved Danbara. I still don't necessarily think Yuhane is as amazing as every keeps saying =/

Hashisako Rin's first impression this time around was so strong, she deserved her character award :) 

And I still like Kirara even though it feels like almost no one else here does lolol

12 is Inoue Hikaru (the new "leader" of KSS.) She's now the eldest generation (13th) that joined in 2013.

 

26 is Okamura Minami from the newest gen. This was her first happyokai. She did awesome!

Pretty sure about half of these girls are better than at least one third of Morning Musume. How sad :lol:

 

Ichioka got really, really pretty over the years. I hope they utilize her well. It'd be nice to have another mature group, even as a sub-group with a MM member or two thrown in.

I really loved Yuhane's performance, so I looked on Hello!Online to see if any wota had recorded it at all, and sure enough...

 

Magic of Love (2015 J=J Ver.) by Yamazaki Yuhane

 

I love her voice.

 

On another note, I really liked Rin's spunk in her performance, that subtle kinda smug smile when she put on the sunglasses was great, I love that confidence.

I listened to the full line-up, and I was less impressed than most here. The two who were chosen as best singers were pretty good, as was Danbara. The little girl who sang Tropical Koishiteru was impressive for how young she seems to be. Other than that, though, I was disappointed.

Hikaru will actually be the only one left from her gen once Rio graduates.

Are the Kenshuusei not allowed to wear makeup? I've noticed several older girls (like Hikaru), would look much cuter if they had eyebrows and their eyes and lips were more defined. Being under all those bright lights washes them out.

That's a great question... if they're allowed to wear any it's definitely super light. I remember Yanagawa's make-up was waaaay too thin at her debut event.

I think they're definitely held back with makeup. A lot of debutees have changed a lot in their first few months.

It's not as obvious with girls like Momohime or Kirara because they look really young, but yeah, it's visible with the older girls- their faces are already somewhat mature, you'd expect them to wear makeup.

I agree.

 

Management probably feels it helps add to their debut "glow up" lolol... When you see a girl a couple months after debut she looks so good (with a new haircut and make up and clothes.) I mean, it works... Kobushi in particular is what comes to mind.

Okay, someone on Facebook said that Reina was debuting, but they didn't say which Reina (I'm assuming Ichioka) or what group she was debuting IN! (The inability of some people on FB to actually give complete information is infuriating.)

It is Ichioka (and Danbara Ruru and Kawamura Ayano will debut as well, though whether all of them together or separate is unknown, and Kiyono Momohime and Takase Kurumi will also debut in a different regard, I believe it has to do with acting and theatre), but there is no information on whether in a currently existing group or a totally new group.

H!P girls actually also do their own makeup unless it's for a magazine shoot or something like that.

Stardust doesn't even let their girls wear nail polish.

Here's my translation from the concert rip.

 

It was a very sudden decision when it came to Ichioka, Danbara and Kawamura. There's currently no extra info of when and where they will debut. My guess is we'll get debut news either at C-ute's final concert or during the H!P Summer concerts.

 

Takase and Momohime were described as going to do something different than the Engeki Joshibu, but still within theater acting. There's no more information on this as well. :(
