I’m so sad about Mizuki because I really liked her! She grew really fast in KSS and had a lot of potential.

I liked her too. She was one I was hoping would get a chance.

Loool well with a dwindling KSS roster it makes sense.... Might as well milk the few girls you have for what you can  :party:

Kenshuusei Hashimoto Momoko and Kenshuusei Hokkaido Kitagawa Ryo have finished their KSS training and have been removed from the website.

Apparently Hashimoto won on Last Idol.

Horie Kizuki and Kanatsu Mizuki have left the Kenshuusei.



People have already speculated about Kanatsu because she wasn't present in some magazine interview. Horie was a given to graduate - she's 20 now. They probably told her she wouldn't be in any of the new groups so why should she stay?



I’m so sad about Mizuki because I really liked her! She grew really fast in KSS and had a lot of potential.



I just watched the summer 2015 H!P concert and the two of them were prominent in the KSS appearances since so many of the former KSS members were making their first concert appearances as Kobushi and Tsubaki Factories in this concert. The other prominent Eggs in that bunch were Kaga and Reina I. And little Yanamin. Momona Kasahara is in there also, although I had trouble spotting her. And Mizuho Ono.


I really liked Mizuki also. I thought she belonged in a group.

#551 DonJuan


Posted 01 November 2018 - 09:46 AM

I guess now is the "perfect" time to call it quits because ... where are you going to debut? All groups are full. With Harunan gone MM will be at 11 so they might add another generation next year but who knows, and even then chances are thin. Once Dawa is gone ANGERME is at their preferred number of 9 again. Juice is full, CG is dead, Tsubaki is full, Kobushi is in a limbo. They might add girls to CHICA#TETSU because a group of 4 looks really small nowadays. 

Basically if they weren't chosen for one of the new groups they probably saw their chances getting thin.

DOI! Not Doi.  :crying:

This is what I get for following a trainee. FAIL!



Angerme and Morning Musume are totally going to add to their ranks. When, how, time will tell. 

Kobushi could use a shot in the arm. It's fine as it is, but they are stuck in that rut C-ute was in when they lost their members.

But they don't have the charisma of a combined Airi, Chisato and Maimi to keep them above water for long. 


That Only You audition is still in limbo. As of October they were in the final stages. If that's where these three new kenshuusei came from, I don't know. 



But... DOOOOOOOOOOOI!!!!!  :puppyeyes:


I'm so upset about that.


Also, updated the first post in this thread.

Here is Riai Matsunaga's recorded performance. 

Also a note for interest, Yamazaki, Isiguri and Kudo are all from Hokkaido. Where they are obviously getting more one of one training to dominate over the Tokyo based girls. 

They didn't win, but here are recordings from


Kanemitsu Ruru / Kira Kira Fuyu no Shiny G

Yonemura Kirara / Souda! We're ALIVE


They are really starting to train the girls more and you can tell. I'm pretty impressed so far. But then again, I was going in with no hope. So the bar was pretty much sitting on the ground.


I'm really curious about Yuriya. I've coined her Mai 2.0 so I want to see if she can actually hold it together in a very challenging song that's clearly not really meant for her but she's giving it a shot anyway.

Posted 07 May 2019 - 05:56 AM

I kind of wonder if they have the urge to announce another group, I feel like this is a bad time to be a Kenshuusei (so many groups, and none of them seem close to disbandment at all (maybe Country Girls)) but I can only wonder about plans for them.

Yes,  Morning Musume needs new blood in it desperately. And there are quite a few good girls that would do well in the group.

Half of Morning Musume is at the stage where they could leave at any moment. I know it's hard to believe but Chisaki joined in 2017. She's coming up on 2 years.

That's 2 years since they've gotten a new member and really, she doesn't even count since she wasn't part of any special auditions. 

They aren't like ANGERME, who have a much more stable group with very few graduations. Though I think once Ayaka goes that might change. I just have this feeling that she's holding off this dam of future graduations. 

The Kenshuusei need some new blood too. The pool is getting smaller and smaller. They tend to find the best when doing auditions. So I'm hoping for some good candidates. 



Also. I updated the first post with some new info and pictures.

MM really does need an overhaul. The core five members feel like they've been around even longer than they actually have, and no one who has joined since Sakura is really special in any way. Their last great song, IMO, was Utakata Saturday Night, and that was three full years ago. I don't hate these girls, but I'm bored with them.
