In an interview, Tsunku says Morning Musume's songs are different from the past. Their cool EDM songs are much darker. He says he wants to bring back bright and fun songs like the old days.

It would be nice to have a mixture. "Utakata" being popular among fans makes me think some fun Tsunku songs would do pretty well. Just don't dress them like chickens again, even if 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.

I like the song fine, and the costumes would've been a cute little thing in a bonus album PV or something - but I didn't dig them so much as the main focus of a single. :lol:

Tsunku is going produce a new project called "Uta no Harajuku hokoten", a live stream show on SHOWROOM
http://www.billboard-japan.com/d_news/detail/46069/2

Tsunku wants to bring back the 1980's culture where street performers used to have fun and sing every Sunday on a famous street, to the current era.

Hokoten is a shortened version of the Japanese phrase Hokousha Tengoku (歩行者天国) which means "pedestrian paradise". In Japan, the term is used to refer to streets that are closed off to vehicle traffic so that people (pedestrians) can enjoy walking on the road, watching street performers and musicians, having a bite to eat in the middle of the road, and socializing.

Harajuku Hokoten - Perhaps the most famous of all Tokyo Hokoten, the Harajuku Hokoten used to take place on the part of Omotesando street that runs through Yoyogi Park. Unfortunately, this Hokoten was shut down by the Tokyo Government around 1995 and is no longer active.

I like that idea (of the original hokoten, and Tsunku's attempt to revive it, at least in spirit). I hope it works!

Robson Street in Vancouver is basically like that in late summer. It’s awesome, and I love that Tsunku is trying to revive it in Japan.

various news reports this morning say Tsunku was finally able to regain his voice and communicate with his family using the esophageal vocalization method. Though his voice still very weak and low, but if the room is quiet, you can faintly hear him talk. He is practicing everyday. Someday well hear his voice on stage and TV again.

Fifth grader Hibiki Sakai sent Nintendo a letter, thanking the company for its Rhythm Heaven games. Hibiki is blind, and these music titles are the only games he’s really able to play. Nintendo replied to his letter in a most thoughtful way.

Rhythm Heaven uses original music composed by Tsunku and Masami Yone, with vocals by TNX artists including Canary Club, The Possible, and Tsunku himself.
