Looks like that might be Horie behind her in the first one.

Edit: Yeah, pretty sure that's her. :lol:

I really like the first costume and the styling on her towel. They definitely remind me of the "Sayuminglandoll" photobook from a few years ago, which was a style I thought she pulled off well.

SAYUMING LANDOLL @ Cotton Club 3/19/17
Image

Sayumi's 80 minute performance is not a live concert, musical, or dinner show. It is her fantasy performance show with a variety of lights and sounds. Lots of projection mapping images and laser beams. It is the story of the main character named "Toto", who is an apprentice of the ice star circus group "Sayumingland"

There were 2 songs that played including Lalala no Pipipi, Shabadaba Doo, and an additional 6 songs used from song and lyric writers like Omori Seiko, Hiroshi Kawabe, CMJK, Okubo Kaoru, Kodama Ameko. A soundtrack album will be on sale April 10th at the venue.

It is revealed that during the 2 years and months she was inactive, she was living a normal life and went to Hawaii with her family. At that point she thought about wanting to dance and sing again.

Okay so I had no idea Sayumi was this eccentric and holy shit I love this direction. Going the way of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (Though not as grotesque) x Perfume is super smart. They can ultra digitalize her voice so it sounds fine and she already has that "Robo Sayu" distinction from her Momusu days. Her styling is unique and pretty, and they've given her some decent EDM tracks. She's like an anime idol brought to life.

If UF doesn't fuck this up as badly as they did LOVENDOR she could really go somewhere.

Yeah, I really like this Sayumi. Even though she's continuing a kawaii aspect to her character, she's not infantilizing herself. Her way of speaking is adult and there's a mature look of determination in her eyes during her performance, not a fake vacant look. And she's confident and relaxed during her interviews, not like someone nervous about a comeback. It's hard to continue solo in the idol industry, but Michishige is a smart woman bottom line that I want to believe she can pull it off.

Completely pointless, but this is what Meimi got when she sang Hanamizuki at a karaoke.

Miki Fujimoto promoting an "innovative" vending machine, 'cuz that's what semi-retired mama-dols do…







Talking about Rika's marriage, and apparently the H!P OG have their own LINE group to talk about stuff like that…

Does "upgraded" for Rinapuu mean she's more conservative (does less work), or less conservative (actually does more work)?

Wait, Rika is getting/got married? I've been gone for so long I don't even know what's been going on in the J-Pop world.

I think Tanaka Reina, Michishige Sayumi, Kamei Eri, Ogawa Makoto, Kusumi Koharu, and Mistui Aika are the only hold outs from Gens 1-8 (and Makoto has a rocker boyfriend).

Means she looks like Katsuta but better, that's all.
