If the question is do 18+ year olds voices improve over their 12-14 year selves, that's pretty drastically answered in the first 1:30. XD A more interesting question would've been does H!P as a whole in 2016-2018 sound better than it did in 2003-2005? I would still say yes, definitely.

^ Agree.

The best voice among an individual H!P members past and present is still Ayaya though in my opinion, and they have not found anyone to rival her, especially if you take their ages in to account. Even Oda needs several years to fully develop.

Yesterday, a comedian and DJ named Dainouji appeared at a small festival (held in a batting center at a reconstruction place) called Kesennuma Phoenix Fest. in Kesennuma, where Sasaki Rikako was from. He got people's spirits up and moving and dancing to Taiki Bansei. SCK Girls also joined in the fun. They also danced to RR21.

Watching a 5-member vs 7-member Juice=Juice video where they showed "CHOICE & CHANCE"; I'm disappointed they gave Tomoko's flirty "goodbye" to Nanami. It was one of my favorite parts. :lol: (To be clear, I dislike the idea of giving this particular part to any member that isn't Tomoko.)

Yeah I don't like how they gave Tomoko's "Everyday" part in Karada dake to Yanamin too.

^ Here you go. The whole thing is a little over 16 minutes, but that part comes up early enough. (Would recommend some general browsing on this channel, they put out my favorite compilation-style H!P videos.)

I thought you said Ayacho and was very confused.

If Nonaka Miki does a photo book should the title be "Best of Both Worlds"?

Hot take: I miss low-budget, tacky H!P. Sure, it was shit, but it had more charm and character than current H!P does. It's too formulaic and predictable nowadays, whereas it used to be that you couldn't guess what kind of songs you were going to get from single to single and whatnot.

Based on some of the criticism I still see and hear, I'd say quite a few people still think low-budget, tacky H!P still exists.

It's not tacky H!P, it's Tsunku-H!P. Sexy Sexy totally reminded me of it -- that's a song that could be done by like cute in 2008. Great stuff.

I miss Tsunku H!P myself. I think most "older" fans do though, when Tsunku had to step down H!P lost some of its charm. Not all of it, enough that it's noticeable.

To me, H!P feels more sluggish. Everything feels slower and less energetic. That's probably because singles are fewer and farer between. I still love it, but it's tough not to miss the good ol' Tsunku days.

Tsunku was like a modern day Prince, an artist with so many songs in the vault, he had to create groups to put them out. His disciples are great, but they're lacking the same wild creative spark that drove him in the first place

I had enough of "Factory". No more new groups trying to be a reincarnation of Berryz Kobo. Be something fresh and free from the past.

None of them have that Berryz feel anyway. The girls are too uniform, the songs are too consistent. Berryz was a hot mess and that's why we loved them damnit.

Another year has passed and they still haven't moved Aika's profile from the Hello Project profile page to M-line...
http://www.helloproject.com/artist/

It drives me nuts. Nothing against her but like what does she do? She's more staff than an actual member of HP still.
It's so dumb how we have 3 girls that are actual HP members now but aren't on the profile page but Aika is.
