Also USTREAM throwback to weekly S/mileage shows and Hatsune Miku Maachan.

edit: I just remembered they tried doing Line Lives but that excludes international fans.


I think Maachan should be doing what Miyabi has been doing and host the show permanently, gives more stability in a weird way. Also Line lives only exclude those who have non jailbroken iphones, i don't think the international audience is of much concern to UF.

would Masaki actually be motivated or committed to want to host a show every single week? She can't even blog once a week.

magazine model and actress in the new drama "CRISIS", Araki Yuko from Stardust, said in a media interview with Mezamashi TV that she is fan of idols such as Momoiro Clover Z, and loves Hello! Project's Kobushi Factory and Morning Musume. '17. She goes to their concerts.

My pointless musing of the day: since Tsunku stepped back from H!P, many or even most H!P releases have been in a lower pitch that is closer to the girls' natural range. So much so that we now have "growly" Kobushi Factory and whatnot. I wonder how much of that distinctive H!P sound that some fans complain is missing now was due to Tsunku's preference for a higher pitch.

I have not been paying close enough attention, and if anyone has the information on hand I don't want to wander back through a bunch of singles threads. They aren't still releasing box sets for singles, are they? (If not, can someone pinpoint for me the last H!P single that did recieve the box set treatment?)

Fortunemusic.jp still does the events for all the groups. Musume's last single was in a box. Not sure about the others since I don't really follow them as much In the same way I do Morning Musume.

Weighing in on where the KSS should go:

Serious answer:

Kawamura→ Country Girls
Danbara→ Morning Musume.'17
Ichioka→ Kobushi Factory

Joke answer:
all three→ Gen 2 of Bella.

My pointless musing of the day: since Hello! Project is more commonly known in Japan as HaroPuro, I wonder if some people maybe think the "Puro" is short for "professional" instead of "project". Furthermore, I wonder if that subtly helps H!P's image as the most professional, most elite idol company.

What brought on this musing? The trending news about Maria's opening pitch. She practiced beforehand and technically threw a strike. Of course it was a nice, gentle pitch that any batter could easily hit if it were for real, but it was still a strike thrown from the mound on a full-sized, professional field. Girly-girl idols aren't supposed to be able to throw straight or far. Girly-girl idols are supposed to throw wild or into the dirt, because that's the moe thing to do. But Maria is from H!P, and H!P is pro. Some reports are calling her saikyou bishoujo (the strongest beauty).

That makes me want more official pictures of all of Hello! Project together. It feels like it's been a while since I've seen one of those.

on the H!P site, Morning Musume. '17's profile pics have been changed from the BRAND NEW MORNING profile pics to the concert tour shots to match everyone with Sato Masaki, since she didn't have a new BRAND NEW MORNING profile shot.
http://www.helloproject.com/morningmusume/profile/

news dwango says Sato Masaki has performed in all 30 concert tour performances and with the Hong Kong concert coming up, she will be successful in the recovery of her injury
