MY KOHARU IS GRADUATING!!!!
My favourite member of Morning Musume is going to be graduating at the end of MoMusu’s next tour and I never thought this would happen.
Especially not so soon.
This is… this is just… NOOOOOO!
I was sad about Biyuuden but this feels awful.
I wish her all the best and everything but I really wish she could have stuck around in Morning Musume a bit longer. She was really just hitting her stride, her performances were getting better, she was becoming a real force of H!P and now she’s off to do something else.
I want her to continue singing – I hope she will, but as far as I can gather she’s pulled an Erika and has switched to modelling.
Fair enough, but for me that’s boring.
I LOVE YOU KOHARU! DON’T STAY OUT OF A RECORDING STUDIO FOR TOO LONG!!!
(When I’ve calmed down a bit, I’ll probably do a proper post about my love for Koharu but for now…. *CRIES*)
41st Single August 31, 2009Posted by keystoeverything in Morning Musume.

Yep, Morning Musume have announced their 41st single title.
I love the title, but I get the feeling that it could potentially end up as another Nanchatte or something…. not that that’s really a bad thing. Nanchatte Renai is probably one of my most favourite Momusu songs – but looking at it objectively, it was practically Diet-Shouganai.
Well, we’ll have to see but Kimagure Princess is out on 21st October and the Single V version is out a week later. It comes in four editions, regular and then A and B each with a DVD and version C having ten different covers….
Yeah, one for each girl and then a group shot. I would’ve thought they would have done that with the milestone single; No.40. But apparently 41 is special too.
Either that, or H!P just really want more money.
…ManoEri Gets A Calender? August 28, 2009Posted by keystoeverything in Berryz Koubou, C-ute, ManoEri, Morning Musume.

Yep, the covers for the 2010 Hello!Project calenders have been released and there’s a couple of things worth noting about them.
Morning Musume’s is nothing to really write home about. Just like last year they’re going for the simple, elegant and generally more mature look.
Black = good. Aika’s hair, however, does not. That would be my only flaw really. I’d be interested to see what’s on the inside but, really, it holds no thrills if it’s anything like the 2009 one.
Unsurprisingly, the girls look amazing… when is that new? But the staircase is not made for nine people.
Berryz Koubou’s confuses me.
They are in penguin suits, which look to be ill-fitting… yet there are rainbows. Someone please explain the connection here.
I mean, there’s a bit of a clash between the mono-chromatic clothing and the arc-en-ciels.
I dunno, I’m still interested in buying it, but I think that’s because my Berryz fandom has resurfaced quite strongly in the past few weeks.
Right. This is the fun one.
The first thing worth noticing is the 5-nin lineup taking effect. And I feel a little bit saddened by that.
Then we get to the WTF?-ness. Sports Festival? Ah, now they have an actual theme, which by no deductive reasoning I can see in the other two.
Then the clothes. They look like they might be serving ice-cream and then having a jolly good old tap dance with Mary Poppins. Hmm…
And then my worst nightmare.
A massive Mano-face staring at me. Needless to say, I won’t be buying this one.
Obvious Bias August 25, 2009Posted by keystoeverything in Berryz Koubou, LinLin, Morning Musume, Sugaya Risako.

If you’ve read the post previous to this one, you may have picked up on a couple of my personal biases.
Sugaya Risako being the first. I was very tempted to just go on and on about her in the School Days post too, but I managed to restrain. Risako is my favourite member of Berryz Koubou – even though she can be vocally awkward, I still love her. I almost always focus on her during lives and PVs and if I’m not careful this could decent into a worship blog. Geez, she’s even my sister’s favourite – and she doesn’t even like idol music.
LinLin is my second or third favourite member of Morning Musume. I was drawn into the H!P fandom a little before Resonant Blue was released and I was running around various blogs looking for information et cetera, and I kept coming across personal rankings, most of which really rated JunJun. I immediately felt a bit sorry for LinLin and thus, began to like her. And then she proved me right by being the awesome that she is.
If you’re curious, my favourite in Morning Musume is Koharu for no good reason and I have trouble deciding whether Eri or LinLin is number two…
