Some added OG news from the last year.
Airi's been being an epic soloist. She's MC on show
where she sings anime songs and it's just pure eargasms for me.
She's also keeping herself out there and busy amid all this covid stuff so, good for her!
Miyamoto Karin seems to be following slowly in her steps behind her so I guess UF finally found something that works?
Speaking of which, the M-Line group have finally seem to have become more than just a place to stuff the OG.
They did this epic year long ~Make a Wish!~ concert series with Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina, PINK CRES. (before they broke up), Suzuki Airi, Kudo Haruka, Miyamoto Karin, Ogata Risa, and Bitter & Sweet, and invited current H!P members as special guests. The most notable moments were the mini-reunion of Aa!
Tamura Meimi and Fukuda Kanon did some weird duo Hana Dorobou
twitter thing on April 1st and everyone was like, wtf? And I still have no idea what that was about. It got me excited but then it turned into nothing.
Speaking of Kanon, she had a hot mess of a year. An audio leaked out between her and Oomori Seiko where Oomori was verbally abusing Kanon. Shit went down but Kanon stayed in the group. She also got caught in an affair
with Watanabe Junnosuke, music producer for BiSH and CEO of WACK. Because she's such a low bean on the stalk, nothing seems to have happened since then that I can find? She's in a subgroup now with a few of the ZOC members called zoc, Oomori and her seem to not be as involved with each other. It's all very weird over in Maro land so I tend to only peek every once in awhile.
Takahashi Ai has been doing a bunch of stuff but I really don't pay attention to a lot of it. But she's got her own personal Youtube channel now. Overall she seems to be doing well for herself.
Baby Hagi got married! Shocker of the year. Seems' the Baby H!P Kids were the first to fly off. (First Risako for Berryz and now Mai for C-ute.)
Okai Chisato's sister Mion was a finalist in Miss Seventeen 2021.
Oota Haruka is going to school but still in UF. I feel like this is another Riho/Aika situation. So either she's staying till her contract runs out OR she really will come back in some form. We should know by spring or whenever she's done getting into the college of her choice.
The last missing puzzle piece if Nomura Minami. She's still MIA. And I'm curious to know what her plans are. Even Ozeki Mai has been active and she was the least active member in H!P!
