Her second album flopped compared to her debut, though. (I should bother myself to listen to it at some point, lol)

 

 

You totally should... She has really changed how she sings (intonation and stuff) and it's really interesting. I really like it. I guess she got some tips from her recording producers (I think that's what she said for Break it Down, at least. But since she sounds different on a number of the songs I think it carried over.)

Goto’s flop with Avex still upsets me. They’re my favorite label outside of HP stuff and they managed to destroy her career. Like... how??

Her brother and his actions destroyed her career in H!P/UF. Then her mother’s death broke her career in Avex. Goto hasn’t had a happy life with her family.

Even without those events, I don't think they really knew what to do with her. I thought it was pretty clear from the start that she didn't belong with Rhythm Zone.

Her entire first year of releases were also all digital, which might work now, but definitely didn’t work in 2009. I think it was a combination of things but I definitely think she would have faded away even if she stayed with Up Front.

Nobody knew what to do with her, not even Up Front. How many times did her image change from her first single to her last? 

 

And yeah, I don't know wtf Avex was thinking going all digital with Maki in 2009. What was the point of even signing her if you were never going to promote her properly? 

 

As I look back, I'm starting to think that Goto never had as much potential to be popular as a soloist as everyone assumed she did.

There’s been rumors circulating for a couple weeks that an ex-idol in her 30s is gonna be arrested for drugs soon. Kago has posted on Twitter that despite speculation, she will not be the one being arrested lol.

They say it’s someone from a big group. The other name I’ve seen being thrown around is ex-AKB Oshima Yuko. If it ends up being true, whoever it is is done for I’m the entertainment industry.
