Re: UFP/OG Spam Thread :: All things non-Hello!Project Related!

Seeing some shots from Murotan's new PB on Twitter, which seems to be causing some consternation there. I dunno, other than the one underwear pic, it doesn't seem all that different from the stuff I've seen from most H!P PBs. Tweet with previews hidden in spoiler box. Look if you wanna; don't if you...

Re: Hello!Spam :: 2022 ~Love and Peace~

I think the clear analogs are Rio for Mizuki and Mei for Masaki, just in matching type of voice alone, and so far they've been holding up. Mei is somewhere between Maa and Sakura for me because I think she's better than Maa was at the same point, and not as good as Sakura. And like DJ pointed out, ...

Re: Hello!Spam :: 2022 ~Love and Peace~

Ruru was pretty polished when she debuted, but Kishimon is a decent comparison I think, even if she was better than Marine at debut. As for MM, I'm bullish on Mei. She started out strong, and has improved steadily every year. She's more technique than feel at this point, but so was Sakura when she w...

Nice. UF takes a lot of shit on social media, and yet I'm constantly seeing stuff like this from industry people. I'm glad they're well taken care of, because they obviously have fairly short shelf-lives as idols.

Re: Morito Chisaki to graduate from MM at the end of the sping tour

That was hilarious. Maria finding creative ways to avoid bawling uncontrollably is hella endearing. I just finished the concert (A!O, yo) and it's a lot of fun. Cool setlist and mucho Chii-chan. It's too bad her voice never fully recovered, because every now and then it stabilizes into a decent, uni...

Re: Hello! Project 2022 Spring CITY CIRCUIT

I just finished watching Anju's PERFECTION show (A!O, y'all), and I second pretty much everything DJ said. Kawamuu's growth as a singer is crazy. Earlier this year I tweeted out how it was similar to that of Akari from J=J, and while Akari is the better singer, I think Kawamuu has improved more over...

That's kinda where I'm at, atm, but I wanna let it marinate a bit before I do a full-on review. I still haven't done one for Yowasa, so maybe I'll just combine them.

Definitely major Biyo vibes, but I'm getting some "Factory" vibes from it, too -- just not Tsubaki Factory. I could totally see 8-nin Kobushi doing this. This single is all over the place, and yet I like all of the songs. It feels like UF is doing a soft reboot on TF and is as unsure of th...

Re: Geting to Know OCHA NORMA

It took Tsubaki a few singles before they really settled into their niche, and it'll probably be the same for OCHA, although I wouldn't be shocked if they eventually settle into a "This is the HELLO!" vibe, where the best way to describe them will be "they're very H!P." I also th...
