Re: Inaba Manaka to graduate from Juice=Juice and Hello!Project May 30th @ Budokan

Not too surprised from an age standpoint but sad nonetheless. I enjoyed her in country girls and seeing her come back and join Juice Juice was nice

Re: [2022.04.20] Juice=Juice - terzo

I’m excited for this. It’s nice that Platonic Planet is finally getting a release. I was hoping for more album songs as it seems to be mostly singles but at least we are finally getting an album

Re: Hello!News Network :: 2022 Back to Basics Edition

While I’m sad that he’s leaving the company. It will be nice to see to potentially get more solo works as those slowed down a lot ever since he started writing for the groups. It does make me wonder if we’re going to see even more of a slow down with more releases with H!P themselves since they’d be...

I actually really enjoyed Ham Katsu MV. I’m really surprised we haven’t seen a dip in MV quality yet. And it makes me wonder why the rest of H!P can’t get creative MVs like this.

Re: Sayuki left Juice=Juice and H!P and it's Bullshit

I’m pissed. She was my favorite member in J=J and one of the top members in H!P for me. I’d been hoping the dating rules would’ve been loosened especially since other groups (Negicco and Dempagumi inc) have openly married and pregnant idols in the groups and it’s not causing anyone any issues.

Re: [2020.12.16] Morning Musume.'20 69th Single - Junjou Evidence / Gyuusaretai Dake na no ni

I actually sort of like the SP cover but Regular A is the worst. Overall though a major idol agency like H!P should have better covers than this. There’s many underground idols who have better covers and they’re working with less of a budget too

Re: Ogata Risa goes on hiatus after private Instagram account was leaked

I’m disappointed that this is all true. I’m surprised they put her on hiatus instead of just straight up firing her. But maybe they’re waiting for a contract to end or something. I don’t really see her coming back from this. I hope it doesn’t hurt the group in the long run.

Re: [2020.09.30] Tsubaki Factory - Dansha-ISM / Ima Nanji?

I liked the Dansha-ISM MV, there was a lot going on in it, but it was decent quality and the song was catchy. The single isn't my favorite but it's grown on me a lot and it's pretty decent. Not their best, but I don't think it's the worst either.

Airi released a new music video. It seems to be related to something with Samsung based off of the video description. It's not my type of song, but I think she does a really good job with it.

I actually really liked the song. It's not the best but it's the first Angerme song I've liked on the first listen in years. It doesn't really sound like a Hello! Project song though, it has a similar sound to Zaishou no Lucifer by Iketeru Hearts which may be why I like it so much.

It's been a few months and I still play a lot of Stardew Valley. I have fairly limited games with me when I'm living at college so it's been nice. I'm interested in the new Dragon Quest game although I've never played any previous games.

80,000 for day 1 sales is impressive. Especially for a new group. Hopefully they will hold onto it and get number 1 for the week.
