He'll probably continue to write for H!P in a diminished capacity if for no other reason that it's guaranteed money while he's building a new company.

Kaga has been confirmed to have covid after taking a home test and as such, will not be apart of Hina Fest or the Sato/Events this year.

So far no one else has been confirmed as it states she's had no close contacts with anyone (members/staff) recently.

Ow man :( Hoping for a fast recovery.
There's been quite a wave in my country lately and it seems like a bunch of people actually had it hard. Hopefully Kaga's case will be lighter.

I think they did her a solid by not simply canceling her contract for cause two years ago.

As someone who suffers from chronic vertigo for the last 13-14 years and now also has positional vertigo from a concussion this year… it’s a bitch and I hope she feels better. There isn’t a lot that helps.

That sucks. I hope a new channel pops up, or maybe H!P Stream could be developed into a live streaming service.

I don't understand why they haven't explored that angle given how much they were pushing international exposure a few years ago. Hands down fans in both Japan and overseas would happily pay to stream.

Noticed this hasn't been talked about here yet. Another ailment for Momohime to deal with.
Sharing this via AMPED from Jplop because they worded it better.
Amped wrote:Yesterday, BEYOOOOONDS Kiyono Momohime was experiencing some numbness in her left arm the night before. Her performance at the concert was limited.
https://twitter.com/BEYOOOOONDS_/status ... 7972850689

Today, they provide more detail

Notice regarding Kiyono Momohime's performance limitation
She was examined by an orthopedic surgeon on the evening of the 3rd and was told that inflammation of her joints due to ganglion and fatigue in her wrist was the cause of the pain and numbness. The doctor said that the inflammation would subside after resting her wrist for a few days, and will be able to perform with the support given to her at the hospital.
https://twitter.com/BEYOOOOONDS_/status ... 2744547328

In addition, the ganglion in her left wrist is scheduled to be surgically removed in the middle of this month as it is not an emergency. She will be performing only with her right hand for a while. We apologize for any concern this may cause. We will support her in taking care of her right hand as well as her left. Thank you for your continued support.
https://twitter.com/BEYOOOOONDS_/status ... 6927196165
Since it's almost the middle of the month, she should be getting that surgery soon. The best of luck to her in a speedy recovery. And hopefully no more issues popping up. :tears:

Morning Musume had to cancel another show because of covid.

Ayumi took a covid test on the 16th and it came back positive and because Mizuki, Erina, Sakura, Maria, Akane, Rio, Homare and Mei were in contact with her, they canceled their show on the 21st. Morito is still home recovering from her own covid issues.

I'm pretty worried about Hime... hopefully this will work out somehow.

MM having to cancel concerts is pretty sad. I hope nothing happens at the graduation weekend.

Maria and Mei join the corona crew.

At this point they should just put everyone in quarantine until Chisaki's graduation concert.

And Maria and Mei resume activities.

Kishimon's diagnosis shocked me a little. Stuff like that can go wrong real quick. Hopefully she will have an easy recovery; I don't know if there are risks left once they found and treat it.

I'd imagine there's the ongoing risk of blood clotting that she'll have to deal with.

I mentioned this on Jplop but a coworker had the same problem. She needs to stay on blood thinners and there’s a risk she’ll clot again. She even has a standing desk now because the risk of her clotting in the legs is high.

That... doesn't sound good for an idol group that probably has to take planes and long train rides to venues. Shit.
But Kishimon is a rather active girl, maybe she'll manage...

Compression stockings are another treatment to lower the risk of clots. It seems like this isn't an uncommon condition, but yeah, in her line of work it might be more of a risk than for most.
