The ANGERME pick is exciting, the JJ one is kind of disappointing considering she just had a whole tour. There’s 2 girls that could be for those mad about spoilers.

I'm surprised nobody posted the results, not even in spoilers...

Here ya go.

 

Not too interested in the Beyooooonds one, because she already had a solo last year.

It's a weird year when one of the most interesting soloists is Kiki.

 

Opions on the soloists in a bigger spoiler:

Wow did they give Mei some harmony lines to try out?

 

That's what I'm talking about. Push them! Love when Taisei is in charge of recordings too :)

I am many years late but I just recently bought a cheap copy of Matsuura Aya’s First Kiss and holy crap it’s an almost perfect album. I’ve looped it about 5 times in my car already.

The albums ends perfectly with Hajimete Kuchibiru wo Kasaneta Yoru too 😍 Ayaya is great.

How ever much you spent on it was a bargain. Tsunku was a total savant at that point, and Ayaya was effortless at every aspect of being an idol.

Hurtan staying in UP Front as an OG.


Why? The? Rush?!

Especially since she basically line jumped Funaki to do it.

This point absolutely, but also: Why the heck did she want to leave ANGERME then? I get staying with Up Front when you already have something going for you (Dawa's art and liberation stuff, Harunan's geeky stuff and virtual idol, Duu's and Mano's acting) or when you're just done with your career and want to do occasional events to get some income and not die of boredom (Maimi, Nksk, most of the OGs). Murotan announced her graduation on the ground that she'd like to "try new experiences in music and possibly acting". I mean, sure, she can try the occasional OG acting. And hey, Harunan's virtual idol stuff was pretty new! (by Up Front standards.)

 

Either she's got a shotgun marriage upcoming or there really is something fishy with Anju.

Part of me thinks it's because Kawamuu was made subleader over Murotan, but regarding everything that's been said it's more likely they announced Kawamuu as subleader because Murotan had plans to leave soon. Then again why was Kawamuu chosen over Rikako :confused: *

*I know the official reasons of course, that Kawamuu has great work ethics and that she actively wants to make Anju better, but well...

Some of them stay with the company but then don’t really do anything. She very well might take a hiatus for the next year plus.

But also, the Angerme she joined is very different than the one she left. Sure, she probably won’t end up doing anything she couldn’t have done while in Angerme, but now she doesn’t have to deal with all the commitments that come with being a full time idol.

As for the rush, who knows. I feel like if it was serious she would have just been kicked out. But I guess you never know.

Sugoi Yabai translated an interview with Nonaka Miki about her decision to take a break of two months to study abroad (which happened from December 2018 to February 2019, you guys might remember).

 

Very interesting points. Back then I thought it was rather weird and a bit inappropriate to leave the group, especially since it made her miss the countdown and winter concerts. I didn't know it was a suggestion from Tsunku - probably another one of those points where I disagree with him.

Ha ha! I was just coming here to link this interview. It's a good read. They really should give Miki a weekly YT live-stream to chat with fans in English. She could have other H!P idols on to do Q&A with the chat, or just on her own.

It would be great if they finally get around to make a use of it. It feels like they haven't made use of English since Aika left (or rather, even before that).

There are so many possibilities, especially now that everyone has a bit more free time since concerts etc. are cancelled. Make it "Miki's surprise English lessons", or as you mentioned some fan chat - "Miki Going Worldwide" or something. Get a funny cheesy catch line and get working.

I think that's also why I've been so meh about her going on hiatus because of this. She did not have a chance to actively use it.

On another note, Kobayashi Honoka news. Or rather, the news of me slowly falling for the girl.

A few of her piano pieces have already been posted in this thread so I'm skipping that. Seems like Honoka has another talent: Drawing. Here's a blog post with a drawing and here's an instagram post with Miku.

Idk how many of you follow the girls on instagram, but Maria has also started uploading some drawings. I think these two are really talented. It's pretty classic shoujo style, but actually something that could be published like that.

 

Also, on their radio show Honoka mentioned learning German. I'd really love seeing her and Risamaru doing a little skit or something with German vocabulary thrown in randomly.

 

Once again I feel like a lot of these girls are great and have potential, but they're not good at presenting and selling themselves or are very limited through management. Sigh.

They really wouldn't even have to put any money or energy into it - give Miki a camera and have her film a video once per week teaching a random member some phrase in English.  Make it a corner on HaroSute, most of the other ones are painfully boring if I'm entirely honest.  Guaranteed it'd be cute as hell and fun for international fans and Japanese fans alike.

Yes yes yes lets bring back the surprise English lessons! I was thinking they should have done that with her since they added her and said she could speak English.

^As a follow up, Hoshibe Sho uploaded the sheet music to Toei Oedo-sen no Roppongi-eki de dakishimete. H!P is actually doing well connecting with the fans during the quarantine.

 

In general, if you're okay with Instagram, check Beyooooonds' official account. They're posting good videos.

 

Okamura Minami doing a "Tanoshii Miimii" corner, learning/teaching/talking (?) about English. One is about counting to ten, another one is her telling Humpty Dumpty's story: https://www.instagra.../p/B-4b6XNFtUL/

Satoyoshi Utano painting eggs: https://www.instagra.../p/B-4UVHnFFju/

Hirai Miyo doing dance covers, like Anju's Myouban, Galaxy Gekijou de: https://www.instagra.../p/B-wAVl3l0fz/

 

Of course some of them are boring or whatever. But I like how different they're all from each other. I wouldn't call Takase Kurumi doing metall puzzles particularly interesting, but Kiyono Momohime practicing beatboxing can be, if you have interest in Momohime and/or beatboxing.

 

They're good kids.
