Added a little something to your post Solarblade. <3 

She looks like a nice fit. I can't believe she's 12 (going on 13) though.

What the fuck

Edit: God I hope this doesn't mean someone is leaving soon

Editx2:

Here's some stuff about her for the non-trainee followers

Name: Kasahara Momona (笠原桃奈)
Birthdate: October 22, 2003
Birthplace: Kanagawa, Japan
Blood type: A
Height: 155.8cm

Her singing from the Kenshuusei recital a couple months ago. She and Momohime won the fan vote.

I'm told she's more of a dancer than a vocalist.

I like how angerme just gets new members way faster than MM.

I like to think Angerme just works backwards. Add members when they leave instead of add members before they leave. 
They added Kamiko for Kanon and now Momona for Meimi. Though Momona doesn't have a lick of Meimi's talent. But then again she was trying to cover Kamei Eri centric songs. 

Another fact for those that don't know. Momona is a very big Kamei Eri fan. Which is why she chose this year and last year to sing her songs at the KSS Trainee recitles. 

 

Here is another news article with her and the leaders of H!P + Chisato who is doing MC duties for this tour since she can't sing.

Ehhh there were other people's would have liked to see debut, but it's not surprising since she won the KSS test.

I'm not that impressed by her singing, but maybe she'll get better in time, so won't judge her just yet. But it will be interesting to see how she'll fit in.

I'm not happy. Kamiko only just joined and she doesn't even have time to be the new one? Plus Angerme was in such a good place, I feel like they're adding new ones way too fast. She better be able to keep up with their current level of performing.

 

I don't like it.

 

But Dawa is definitely leaving now.

It's unexpected but I don't really see it as a bad thing. Joining Angerme seems to be a better option than MM at this point. But does this make her fifth generation, or is she just some unlabeled generation?

I think she's being considered 5th gen. They threw her onto the blog with 3ki and Moe though. They should split her and Moe off into their own blog.

I was kind of hoping for a girl like Nagisa next, but Momona isn't too bad of a choice.

However, why not. ANGERME is great and that girl is cute.

Yeah she was born in 2003, I think in Oct/Nov. She looked like 15 in her profile pic when she was introduced even though she was only 11.

After thinking of what eggs we could have gotten (Yumei) and just trying to feel better about it I don't think it's as bad as I first did. Just have to be hopeful and wait. (And still hope she pushes Dawa out lol)

Damnnnnn what luck to join such an awesome group... Of all the groups, Angerme is probably the best place to debut in right now. I don't know her well, but I look forward to her performances... Kamiko was an awesome pick, so I have faith in those who are making decisions for Angerme. They haven't really been wrong yet.

Maho may not be the best singer, but she seems to be quite a popular member with the Japanese wota. She had tons of calls at their recent Budokan, along with being the center of Marionette 37 live. I know she's not everyone's cup of tea but she seems to be doing really well.

Maho?

Her and Rikako are about the same singing-wise and she's funny. So there's that. New girl doesn't sing any better than she does so if Maho was a poor choice so is she.

Maho is great. She's okay talent-wise, but she's pretty funny.

I'm not a fan of this. I get that members are gonna come and go, but it seemed like ANGERME was avoiding all of the poor decisions that have plagued MM the past few years. They had a solid lineup that they just added to, and the talent level was pretty high compared to most idol groups. I know that a lot of people think Rikako sucks as a singer -- I disagree -- but if she's the worst you've got, you're doing pretty good.
 
Adding an honest-to-god tin-ear like Momona to this lineup is a move in the wrong direction. Hopefully, this does not become the trend like it did for MM. ANGERME can survive with one Momona, but not three or four (or six) Momonas.
 
Here she is singing MM's Tsumetai Kaze to Kataomo.
 
She's really goddamned bad. Like, 12th gen MM bad.

I might go through some KSS songs to get a better listen, that song sucks worse than any voice.

Here's her Kenshuusei introduction video for those interested... She seems to have grown up quite a bit in just a year. I think that may be part of the reason they chose her--maybe they see potential for more growth.

 

One of her favorite Hello!Pro songs is Yuugure wa Ameagari, since the dance is ballet-like and she took ballet herself.

Seniors she looks up to: Kudou Haruka and Sato Masaki (for current members)

JPope you hit the nail on the head. They're going to ruin ANGERME and turn it into MM, we just have to wait for it...
