Welcome to the ultimate party for all things Morning Musume!
We're celebrating 25 years of Morning Musume. And here at MM-BBS, I shall be your MC for this journey.
I believe just one thread couldn't do this all justice. So it's a party all up in here!
As a fellow fan and probably one of the more dedicated Morning Musume fans here on MM-BBS, I feel like we've been through a lot as a fandom.
With a group that's changed and evolved over the years, sometimes spectacularly and sometimes, not so much. We've seen members come and go, either because they wore out their welcome, did something stupid or just burnt out. Songs that made us bust a move, songs that made us question design choices of the UF advertisement department and songs that flopped so hard we packed our things and left the fandom! Some of us have been here from the start and some are still pretty new to the world of Morning Musume. But here, we're going to celebrate it all in the grandest way I could think of, so that we as a group can look back together and remember the old times as well as look to the future.
This is something you can't really do via Twitter or Discord or any other platform. The beauty of a message board! I've created a group of threads that I hope you'll enjoy! They are meant as an exercise for you to get you to take a second look at 25 years of a group within a short period of time. Part nostalgia, part history lesson. I hope that you'll find a little joy in doing these because at the end of the day I just want you guys to have fun! Take you're time and enjoy going back over the years. You might pick up something new to enjoy along the way. 25 years is a long time and depending on when we came into the fandom, there's a lot of unpack and a lot we have have forgotten or overlooked.
Table of contents. AKA Easy access for you to find what you're looking for.
If you think we should add something, feel free to make a thread and I'll add it to the list. This is really only the start of the party.
If this is well received I'll be doing one next year for all of Hello!Project.
