This year felt like a lot happened, but also nothing happened at the same time. Will next year be more exciting??


Now that my standard prediction of Iikubo graduating has come true I need a new one



- Beyonds eventually just drops the sub-group thing and stays as one group

- Kobushi gets new members from this years audition

- Rina announces graduation from angerme and therefore their outfits actually improve

-Tsubaki continues to be the companies moneymaker and so they release a second album at the end of the year

-Mizuki and Ikuta graduate from MM

-Angerme becomes worse once Ayaka graduates

Is this the year we start predicting Mizuki graduating every single year until it happens? She feels like the epitome of someone who will stay forever because she has no real ambitions a la Sayumi.

Anyway, I’m predicting a year as boring as 2018. I was barely even able to follow Angerme and Kobushi this year even though they’re the only two groups I think H!P has that are worth the time.

Kobushi stays the same. Maybe they do an acapella track on their next single.

Tsubaki releases 3 bomb singles.

BEYOOOOOONDS releases an indie single, with one original song and each subgroup covering the track of another H!P artist.

Rina announces her graduation in the fall. ANGERME’s talent becomes more diluted with the addition of Reira and Haruka. As a result they get shoved more to the back along with Ayano and Kana.

Morning Musume has no new graduations or additions. They do another musical, and they only release 2 singles. Both are boring.

Country Girls offially disbands OR Manaka rejoins to keep them at 5.

No new grads from JJ, but they release only 2 singles in 2019. At the fall concert Miyazaki Yuka or Kanazawa Tomoko announce their graduation for the Spring of 2020.

Ozeko announces her graduation but Up-Front still keeps CG around doing nothing.

A dating “scandal”

Angerme adds one more person from Kenshuusei.

One of the new Beyonds members gets a lot of fans.

I’m gonna add my sensei’s prediction too lol she told me she thinks Ayumi will graduate next.

Hello! Project just ended up feeling boring for me as well. Thinking back on it, I can barely remember what happened this year.


- Mizuki or Ayumi will graduate or announce graduation. Masaki could graduate, but at the same time I think she still wants to prove that fortune teller wrong or something. I kind of suspect something is going to happen with Yokoyama Reina. She dealt with a lot in 2018 and from what I've heard, she's been acting similar to how Nanami was in July and Nanami has since announced graduation so it could happen.


- There's going to be another Angerme graduation.


- Angerme will become not as interesting and the whole dynamic they have will change with Dawa graduating.


- Tsubaki Factory will continue to be successful.


- Kobushi Factory will get new members but nothing will really change much.


- No new Morning Musume members. They'll continue to be boring.


- Country Girls won't disband but they'll continue to exist and do nothing.


- Beyooooonds will have some success not sure how much.

I feel like Mizuki had to hang on for at least one more year or else all the baton touch-like stuff from Wada during the anniversary will be meaningless.

Just to check what actually happened with my predictions from last year:



So, let's go on...



- 15th gen will be announced out of the blue

- graduation announcement at the winter or spring concerts, money is on Ayumi or Sakura 

- second graduation, Yokoyan (she seems out of it)


(isn't it sad that the only predictable stuff is members joining and leaving? lol)



- double grad Rina and Kana... or Rina and Take bc they tried to build up Kana as the leader

- this year they won't be doing a stage play bc they lost the great actress Dawa

- they will definitely lose steam. Kana will try her best to keep the group's spirit up but Dawa had years of experience and the new members are just so filler material even Kana can't do much



- I can't believe that Yuka stays for much longer so yeah, I'm saying Yuka grad.

- actually make it two grads, Karin will graduate bc she's going into songwriter business

- which leaves us at... uh... 5 members. I'd say perfect but management says no so new members, max. Ruru's age, probably younger



- lords just break them up please



- they'll get a Jidanda Dance-like single and then new members



- they will finally lose some steam since H!P needs money for Beyoooooooonds

- Kisora will leave bc she's always in the back



- imagine this: a stage play

- will release two indies this year, all as the whole big Beyooooonds group

- the only thing they will do as their sub groups are some events / cover sub units at H!P concerts

-> actually make it something like a Beyoooooonds vs Senpai medley at an H!P concert


H!P really needs something out there. They will continue like this because it gets them money, but pumping out new groups (the Factories, Beyooooonds) will only help them for a year or two each while letting the other groups rot. This is not a good development.

We'll get another album.



Akari and will graduate.

We'll get a second gen.

We'll get an image color redistribution.

Will get a joint concert with either Beyooonds or Kobushi again.


Country Girls

Will finally disband.

Risa and Mai will be moved to Up Front.

Mai Satoda will perform in final concert. Momoko will attend concert.



All groups will get second gens.

^There’s no Ayaka in MM, did you mean Ayumi?

Morning Musume

Sakura and Ayaka will graduate.


I almost hope this is true if only because of how boring and stagnant the group is right now lmao.  They haven't really lost a key member / front girl since Riho, all of the recent graduations have been members who barely get lines or screentime.  I think Mizuki is more likely than Sakura, though.  She seems really bored to me.

She got nothing else going for herself, though. Haruna at least has friends in showbiz. Mizuki could become a full time gravure idol maybe.

They all do the same stuff once they graduate. I don’t think anyone in MM has any actual meaningful connections. I see a lot of people expecting Haruna to become some variety star and I just don’t see it happening.

Somehow Haruna did a song for some kind of Youtube thing, so she has that kind of stuff going for her:


#16 DonJuan


Posted 11 December 2018 - 04:05 PM

Just saying, Haruka had acting, and I can see Ayumi going into stage acting, just like Haruna will do very low-key hosting and manga related things like writing for magazines or something. Hell, Ikuta could continue with her golf or something. 

Mizuki though? I don't even know if she has any hobbies.

Ikuta could easily pick up the sports stuff that Yossi used to do: racing, cycling, diving, etc.

Mizuki has a nice enough voice she could continue singing if she wanted to (and if management supported her).

I feel like Mizuki could also follow the Konno route of news announcer.

Konno actually got a degree for that though.

Did she? I thought her degree was in something unrelated.

Wikipedia translates Konkon's college as the School of Environmental Informatics and the Japanese wikipedia just as much admits that this covers a wide range of topics.  It is most definitely not earth sciences (that is very abstract and statistical math) and I'd say Konkon's classes were something along the lines of communications/journalism/big data or policy.
