Yaguchi Mari has popped up on Netflix as a host for this terrible reality show, "Rea(L)ove." I am so embarrassed for her. 

I'm more surprised by eri popping up on the BBS!

 

 

Same here! Welcome back, Eri. Don't be a stranger. Hey, I'M still here. Aine's still here!

 

I totally lost interest in H!P in its current iteration. And I have no time to follow Jpop! But I love love love the original girls from the height of my fandom -- so happy you guys are still here to share my love for them. And sometimes my dislike, as with Yaguchi turning her scandal into a new job haha!

On my recent trip to Japan, I got to see the reunion concert with the five founding members of MM, as well as Tanpopo and Taiyo to Ciscomoon. Plus, six other OGs at another concert that evening. Don't know when I'll get that opportunity again.

 

Oh, and Happy Mother's Day, Eri!

Of note, she’s signed to Victor, who region block everything. So we will likely not really get to hear any of it.

There's a third Airi solo song on YouTube, called #DMAF: https://www.youtube....h?v=7BEE5NkdSlQ

 

It's worth noting that Airi wrote the lyrics to this particular song (she also co-wrote Start Again with another lyricist, but she's the only one who wrote lyrics for #DMAF)

Mano will be playing Inoue Orihime in the upcoming BLEACH movie.

 

Mano is 27 and this character is a teenager so we're approaching silliness territory with the casting.

Tsunku wrote a song for a duo called alom, who are under Avex. It's called Koisuru Otome wa Amamoyou.

 

Here is the MV. And it is B A D.

I think the song is pretty good, but the arrangement and production really are shit . The classic Japanese pop structure, melodies and harmonies are timeless, though.  

 

Also, I love the fact that Avex is dipping their toe into the Female Duo waters, even if they are being too cautious about it. I'd love to see a Duo era revival even more than one of Solo idols.

So, we never made a thread for Airi’s album (did we?) but it did debut at 5 today I’m the charts.

I was wondering about this.  All the MVs came out a while ago but no one was talking about them.

A thread about Fukuda Asuka and how she thinks she might be happier today if she never got into music business.
http://wotaintransla...-without-music/

The headline "My life would've been happier without music" is sad but so is the whole thread, ugh.

 

This is sad. She definitely made some poor decisions after leaving MM, but that's a hell of a burden to carry. Not everyone is cut out to be an idol.

 

It seems she's trying to capitalize on her MM reunion, though, and released the five song CD, Sing, in March. It's not great -- it sounds like she was going for a retro-theme here -- but there is one highlight: the ballad "Style" is a pretty good song, and she sounds great on it. The rest -- even the remake of "Never Forget" -- are rather, uh, forgettable, though. The production is god awful throughout, with synths and vocals pushed to the front and guitars and drums mostly buried, making this sound more like a demo than a proper release.

 

If I were to hit the lotto, I'd get a legit producer to make a legit album for her, even knowing it wouldn't make shit, just because I think she deserves that much.

They're all decently far apart, though. Not like she's been back to back pregnant. 

 

She mentions going on maternity leave, though, and I wasn't aware she was doing anything.

Meimi is doing well. 

 

She is in a new musical in the TRUMP series called "Marigold". Not sure how important her role ("Gerbera") is, but she's the second character listed on the play's page.

 

She seems to be the second main character after all:

UFP is so bad with promotion : Niigaki Risa is coming to Japan Expo for a signing session on Satursday and they didn't announced it yet ! Some fans got to know it because Japan Expo released the complete schedule, of course since it's happening next week, and UFP (or anyone else) didn't made any official annoucement yet. I'm quite mad at them because I'll work on that day (at the JE but chances are very low I'll be able to get free time to go there) and fans outside Paris will also have a hard time to organize their trip last minute and come to see her. UFP :facepalm:.

Yeah, as much as I love Gaki I simply can't go to Paris this weekend. I need at least a few weeks in advance to plan a trip like that.

Mai and some ex-AKB48 members you've probably never heard of will be working at a part time as staff at a limited time beach cafe that will be open July and August.

 

I think there's also some performance stuff, Kikka and UUG are listed for it.
