Miki is so stiff and awkward in these videos.

She doesn’t even smile and sounds like she doesn’t want to be there....

Not really news anymore, but well... Harunan started an anime song cover channel. With the help of other (current) H!P members.

Name is Hello! Anison Club.



Iikubo Haruna (Leader)

Oda Sakura

Nonaka Miki

Kaga Kaede

Takeuchi Akari

Kamikokuryo Moe

Kasahara Momona

Inoue Rei

Kishimoto Yumeno

Ichioka Reina

Takase Kurumi

Nishida Shiori

Yonemura Kirara
Saito Madoka


(The last two are Kenshuusei.)


Episodes so far:

#0 We're Starting a Club to Sing Anison!

#1 Kaga Kaede - Snow Halation, Yonemura Kirara - Angelic Angel

#2 Oda Sakura - Yume no Tobira, Saito Madoka - Heart to Heart

#3 Inoue Rei - Bokura wa Ima no Naka de, Takase Kurumi - Takaramonos

#4 Kishimoto Yumeno - Wonderful Rush, Nishida Shiori - Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki

#5 Takeuchi Akari - Odoru Pompokolin (from Chibi Maruko-chan), Oda Sakura - Ren'ai Circulation (from Bakemonogatari)

#6 Kaga Kaede - RAGE OF DUST (from Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans), Kamikokuryo Moe - Kokoro no Chizu (from One Piece)


I'm surprised that I actually know all of these songs. To be fair none of them are really recent.

More than likely, those two are in that Kenshuusei Unit, so its probable at this point

This whole year screwed up any possible new group forming. Which is a shame.

But omg I love the idea of an anime club where they sing. It’s like they went into my head and took out all the things I secretly want and even the part where Oda is in it.

Up-Front is pushing it this year.


The H!P summer concerts take place, covid-measures considered (seats spaced out, lower capacity - with 1,000 people in the audience at max).

The performances will be all solos, all ballads, and all non-H!P songs.


Current dates are as following:


Date - Day - Venue
7/11 (Sat)  Nakano Sun Plaza (Tokyo)
7/12 (Sun)  Nakano Sun Plaza (Tokyo)
7/18 (Sat) ORIX Theater (Osaka)
7/19 (Sun) ORIX Theater (Osaka)
7/25 (Sat) Sendai Sun Plaza Hall (Miyagi)


They might be cancelled etc. if government decides on new rules.



- - -


I get solo performances (stage less crowded) and I get ballads - the audience is less likely to yell (measures against droplet infections) or jump etc. which would go against the contact rules.

But... no H!P songs? It's not like H!P doesn't have enough ballads or that they are overdone lol.


Up-Front is really trying a lot lately. Is this still the same company? lol


I'm not a fan of ballads, but we'll see.

Ohhh non-H!P songs would be pretty interesting... Would love to see at least one girl do a Wakana song (she definitely has some ballads) but unfortunately I think she's too obscure to be considered for a pick. Either that or performance permissions (is that a thing?) might fall through.

I’m here for a cover concert just out of pure dumb curiosity. You get more of a sense of a girl’s quality and style when they are doing something out of the box. I’m really intrigued by the prospect and I hope if it does happen, we get a release via Blu-ray of it in full.

Ikuta Erina has launched her own clothing brand for golf clothes, called "ELEYVS". link


Guess she really was next in line for graduation, but it would be interesting to see her balance both the brand and idol work for a while (when the world goes back to normal).

I honestly didn't even realize she was into golf, but that's awesome. 

Also I know I hate on her quite a bit but she really is beautiful.

This is a good move for her.

#560 JPope

  • Dick

Posted 20 June 2020 - 10:08 PM

Yeah, golf has been her thing for as along as she's been in the group. Does anyone know if she's ever revealed her handicap? I'm curious as to just how good she is.

She's played in a few celebrity events and on several shows. I haven't paid too much attention to her scores but she's not terrible, especially off the tee. She can hit the ball like a truck. She may have been able to go pro if she chose golf over MM when she was younger.

Surprised it wasn't mentioned (it may have I haven't seen it though), but all H!P members (Sans Oota) will be performing solo tracks on a program called "Hello! Project presents... "Solo Festival!" on TV Asahi on 7/4


Although, the deadlines to vote have come and gone, there's a list of the fans on Twitter that voted (didn't take in the form requests on the channel's site, so these may be defunct or be entirely different once the show starts, but here's the top 3 choices for the all the members as of this list which you can find here!

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that.

It's interesting, especially since it's finally about every girl - and it's on TV. H!P hasn't had such a big show in some time.


By the way, it's going to be 5 hours long :lol:


#564 Anderei

Wow, props to whichever fan ends up uploading the good parts so no one actually has to watch all five hours lol.

#565 DonJuan


Posted 21 June 2020 - 03:07 PM

53 52 members (without Oota), the songs being maybe 4 minutes on average... 208 minutes, 3,5 hours. Give it maybe 4 hours of actual performances. The rest is probably CMs and a small intro.

If they perform only short versions - which they should, honestly... - then there'll probably be a bigger talking part. I really hope someone cuts that.


(52 members x songs being 2 minutes long = a bit less than two hours of performances. Still a lot, but maybe someone could devide it into groups etc.)

#566 WonderBuono

Some preview about Solo Fes (the one they air on TV, with H!P songs).


Looking at the pictures it's going to be great. Honoka is playing the piano of course, and Rio is playing the flute.
