Re: [2022.10.19] ANGERME - Kuyashii wa/ Piece of Peace Shiawase no puzzle

Yeah, Anju's "angry" scenes are about as weird as Morning's "happy happy family" scenes haha.

I'm still quite sad about this release. We get so few releases nowadays, and now we've got a single with 2 songs that I don't like.

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

It's genuine, I think that's what makes it quite good.

Of course it's super safe too, but that's also Risamaru's style.
I'm still surprised they give her actual new songs, but they also don't have that much to lose. It's a safe style, they might make a few bucks off it.

Same. Anju has been in a phase of restructure for a while now with hits and miss. Aisubekibeki from the last single was fire, the second track was decent. This time none is a real banger. But at least the MVs look good.

Piece of Peace vs. Never been better - for once MM wins for me.

Piece of Peace MV.

Well, uh, there's that. Ballads are always difficult on a single when the main song doesn't pull.
Nice shots tho.

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

Yeah, it's nearly nothing about the melody and just a few words lol. But other than that it's kinda cool.
Someone said that the songwriter is my age so it would make sense that he grew up with Morning, and Souda! was still during their popular phase.

Ikuta still has her clothing line, in fact I think she launched something new just recently. Akane is still young, 20, and she seems to be interested in photography. Not sure if she'd start university for it, but she's a clever girl, so I wouldn't be too surprised if she left for something outside o...

I'm always suspecting Akane, but some people have also said Yokoyan :ph34r:
One thing I think is for sure, one of the "newer" (12th gen onwards) members will leave before all of 9ki-11ki are gone.

Re: Get Ready For 17ki: Morning Musume 25th Anniversary Audition

Yup, I agree. I've got a feeling that this is going to be another audition without a winner. They might lose Kaede this year, but I doubt they'll get rid of the other members that fast, and even without Kaede the group is way too big lol.

Yeah, and the fact that they basically went on hiatus with her. Management would not have done the same for Kishimon.

Wow I can't believe Kiki would have such an impact on Lizzie.

Personally I'd say Yumeno has always been their best performer, but the group never really focused on her. Kind of like MM doesn't fokus on Sakura either despite her being the best singer. Or rather Ayaka in Kobushi.

Re: Asakura Kiki to graduate Tsubaki Factory and Hello! Project Spring 2023

What's going to be interesting is that Tsubaki is now losing their second face. The group changed its style after Risamaru's departure, I wonder what they're going to do now. Though to be fair, the last single already wasn't much Kiki. They probably knew that Kiki would try to get into her school.
