I was hoping she’d do to ANGERME, but JJ is a good place with her talent and skill.

Alright, an hour later and I'm somewhat okay with this. To be fair, only Juice and Anju would've been an option at all.

Though I do think that Anju needed someone with vocal talent and experience a lot more. And I feel their songs would've fit her better. But well.

I'm glad she went to the group that will push her more vocally.

Juice Juice is very obviously gearing up for graduations so I can see her ending up there just because of that. I highly doubt she’d end up in MM or Angerme.

They do have that Kenshuusei unit. Maybe they’ll debut her with those girls.

Called it.

Well that was fast but I’m very glad she didn’t just sit there doing nothing like I worried

Yes, I'm happy about this, I think she'll fit in nicely.

I'm ok with this.

She’ll do well in Juice. I hope she can grow as much as Manaka has.

It’s very surreal though. Being in a major H!P group and then being put into another. It’s almost like Fujimoto with Morning Musume but with less shock factor. She also has seniority over the younger members so that’s going to be awkward at first.

I hope she does well and can find her place in a post-Karin Juice.

I’m also secretly hoping she can keep her member color. Karin and Rei are both purple.

^They did it with half of Country Girls only a couple years ago.

^... and one of them even ended up in Juice=Juice, too! :lol:

I'm okay with it.  I think Angerme needs someone way more (because I honestly think J=J could lose a member or two and still be fairly stacked) but this is also okay.

But Country Girls was still a group back then and they reverted it to a sub-group. With Rei, it’s just Juice now and nothing else. We won’t see her with Kobushi like we did with the girls that joined the groups from Country Girls. That’s why I used Fujimoto as an example. She had her thing and then was thrust into a new thing and the old thing was no longer, a thing.

Right on. It was J=J or Anju, and with Anju running auditions, this probably makes the most sense. I'm pretty pumped for this.

Rei's second solo video: "Watashi ga Iu Mae ni Dakishimenakya ne"
I like these clips.

First look at Juice=Juice with Rei:

Well, covid at least gave us a chance to see what Juice looks like with Rei and Karin.

Hopefully this means there will be a single with both girls too.

Another clip of Rei singing Juice's songs, this time Potsurito:

Rei singing Choice and Chance with Sayuki. Nice arrangement, too.

#24 JPope

This is my favorite of Rei's J=J clips so far. Great acoustic guitar arrangement, and not only is her voice not overwhelmed by Sayubee, she hangs with her pretty well. Their voices blend together nicely.

#25 DonJuan

This time Romance no Tochuu with Karin.

They really found their way with these arrangements. Really nice.

#26 WonderBuono


Posted 03 October 2020 - 10:18 PM

It bothers me that they are facing away from each other. I guess because I've seen so many solos this year I want to see some chemistry!

I wish the arrangement had just a little more fire in the belly, but I liked this a lot. Plus, every bit of Karin we get just feels like a bonus.

*Thor voice* Another!
This time, it's Rei and Manaka singing Bitansan: https://youtu.be/a3m9-r_svzI


They made this a really nice ballad.

#29 JPope

Posted 17 October 2020 - 05:29 PM

I think the verse works better as a ballad, but the pre-chorus and chorus not so much. This is really good, though.


Between this and the ballads concert, Manaka has stood out to me. I didn't really follow Country Girls too closely: was she this good a singer when she joined J=J, or has she just improved?

#30 DonJuan


Posted 17 October 2020 - 08:14 PM

Manaka was always decent in my opinion, but she's really stepped up her game since she's joined Juice=Juice.
