Re: Morning Musume Best of 25 (Dream Musume 2.5)

So... :ph34r: I've been thinking about another attempt at Dream MM 2.5, and this time I'd only use members who are - under Up Front - not under the current line-up of MM. That definitely slims down the roster. That leaves us with: 1st gen - Nakazawa Yuko - Iida Kaori - Abe Natsumi 2nd gen - Yasuda K...

Re: Hello!Project Members Ranking - Early 2022 edition

Someone made a new ranker on tiermaker and I appreciate a nice visual ranker, so I wanted to share. And while I'm at it, my ranking: https://i.imgur.com/Tpypzin.png No real ranking among the ranks themselves but hierarchy/seniority.

Re: The Official Unofficial Kenshuusei Guide + News Source

I mean they're KSS. Especially the young one has plenty of time. I'm never too big on KSS when they debut but they quickly improve, like with OCHA.
Tsubaki took their sweet time, though.

^^ Hah :lol: But to be fair that batch of KSS was amazing in general.

^ Yeah, absolutely. Before it sounded more like she was going to take it easy. But maybe covid made her more active, ironically.

It's good to see Maa having fun and laughing again. Also, during the short clip they show of Jurin's 2013 live performance, is that a very young Ruru sitting in the background next to Natsumi Taguchi?

I don't even think Shion was in the back for her generation. She's the most popular of the three as far as I know, and she is very well known for her great stage performance, facial expressions, etc. Maybe dango-ki is just too strong for any of them to actually stick out. https://twitter.com/Morning...

And also that it's two girls at once. And Ayumi is not far behind.
Corona definitely did mess up the graduation schedule, but I guess the girls also don't really have anything else to do.

As of July 7, Morning Musume now has three members who are 25 years old. I don't think that's happened before in the group's history, has it? You're absolutely correct, especially since most girls left by the time they turned 25, except for Yuko. Marine's English is quite good. https://twitter.com/...

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

I wonder if Ai held back for some years because her voice took a hit after her vocal nodules surgery in 2013. Now since the album with Reina and Miyabi is out and she's performing more regularly with M-line she might feel more confident about singing again.

Re: Geting to Know OCHA NORMA

Oh yeah, definitely. They're more polished than others at their debut for sure, while keeping their freshness.

Also this time around Up Front seems to promote them quite well in magazines and the like, I feel like there's 2 or 3 new articles about them every week.
