If it's information that's been publicly posted I don't see the problem. Japanese Wikipedia has a section for that kind of thing too.

The H!P Wikia is trash, though.

I'm surprised UF isn't using The Girls Live to promote their digital singles. We could've easily had studio performances of Fiesta Fiesta and Komaiki Girl by now.

This is actually from the friend's channel. It showed up in my recommended videos. Her name (or nickname) appears to be "Nachori".

Wow, once you go down the rabbit hole (i.e., once YouTube's "recommended videos" algorithm locks onto something)…







This girl's channel is full of stuff other than Morning Musume, however. Lots of food reviews and Pokémon GO.

Anyhow, generally speaking, it's an interesting phenomenon that so many female wota are coming out. Not just celebrities like Mayu Matsuoka and Yuu Aoi. In fact, I wonder if Matsuoka and Aoi are making it cool for female wota to come out.

From another thread…

Amped wrote:a few days ago while in Tokyo, due to timing of work, Manakan got to see Yamaki and Funaki. She didn't get to see or the others. Manakan really wanted to there today for Country Girls 3rd Anniversary.

My pointless musing of the day: Since Country Girls are on reduced activities now and Manaka has rejoined H!P through the Hokkaido branch, is there any reason why Manaka cannot rejoin Country Girls? Maybe not to perform in the summer and winter concerts, but at least for smaller things like this anniversary event? It seems like just a matter of scheduling, unless there are other behind-the-scenes issues.

(since this is pointless musing) Maybe H!P can say that Manaka cannot come back since her "graduating" was like "losing a loser leaves town match" in pro wrestling. Then, since Manaka is known to be azatoii, she could be introduced as a "new" member of Country Girls as "Idol Kamen". Chii-chan objects and keeps trying to get Idol Kamen to unmask but she stays one step ahead of Chii-chan.

My understanding is that they only brought back Manaka to help build Hello Project's popularity in Sapporo. Manaka was really popular and even if they can have her doing some activities as a local idol she's still helping the Hello Project brand and promoting the local kenshuusei.

If they were to bring her back into Country Girls she'd have to fly back to and from Hokkaido. Also they're still planning for Country Girls to be an active seasonal group and with that in mind she'd have to again fly back and forth to prepare. I don't think she or UFP would benefit too much from her re-addition despite how easily it seems.

I'm personally hoping they just let her re-join and participate only in Hello Project concerts in Sapporo.

As otaku_blue touched on, I've just assumed all the traveling might be an issue for her. Wasn't it suspected that the change between Hokkaido and Tokyo is possibly what set her asthma off again? Moving back (semi-) permanently or jumping between the two for varying amounts of time might just cause more trouble than it's worth.

Though I do think it would be great if they could reunite at a Countdown event or something, that'd be a nice end-of-year treat for everyone involved.

I think they specifically mentioned the travelling as part of the asthma issues in the announcement. So it wouldn't be possible.

Chisaki gives me serious Nacchi vibes. Something about her aura I think. She looks nothing like her but every time I see her I just think Nacchi! It’s weird. Must come with the years of dedicated fan service to the group that you start matching old with new.

I'm usually "whatever" about concert outfits, but these are awesome. I'd love it if they were single/album outfits.
