I can't believe we ended up with 6-nin Kobushi Factory and somehow their group was untouched with the shuffle.
Nanami should've just been put there. This dumb agency........

I'm glad the girls are getting along but I still don't like the change in group dynamic and image.

The group is going through some major changes right now. Not to mention trying to promote a movie to the public. Last thing I'd do would put a new girl into what is essentially a shark frenzy. (I couldn't think of a better analogy.)

Rena hasn't left the group? She's out for health reasons so the group is still 7 people.

Having said that, throw in a new member to a group only on their 3rd year and is clearly dealing with shit already? Not a smart move. They used their brains for this one.

Yeah, adding a new member during this mess would be dumb. And Ogawa's gonna be back soon, relax.

I recently watched the Morning Musume Green Live. I'm sure I've watched it once before a long time ago, but I had forgotten how creepy it was not being able to see the audience / watching them sing into the void.

could someone translate some bits please? I'm curious to see what the author has to say.

When you see Reina perform and it only confirms the theory the 13th gen was chosen to replace MaaDuu

Except Kaede and Kudou are pretty different, they're both tomboys (and Kudou's more feminine than Kaede, lol) but that's about it? Even though they both have deeper voices they're not the same kind of deep.

As for Masaki and Yokoyama, I haven't watched a lot of Yokoyama yet so I can't comment on that but I think the similarity is mostly in their expressions and how genuine they are (not that the other girls aren't, obviously).

Not saying there are no similarities, but I don't think 13th gen were chosen to replace anyone.

It's more of a recap of what happened with H!P: new system (and then introduced during the concert for the first time), focus on MM and Chisaki (her feelings about one of her senpais), then JJ about not losing to MM (in terms of getting attention as well), new members mentioned (how they can motivate and add more spark to the group), their overseas lives etc. It's very general and briefly summarised from what I understand.

They will never be exactly alike, but think of the timing. With Duu wanting out and Maachan having that injury. I can totally see Reina taking the same place that Maachan occupies now, and of course Kaede similarly occupying the vacuum left by Duu. It will not be the same, but it will be similar.

Looks like we have another dating scandal. Won't post pictures, but some puripika pictures of Rena have been leaked.

If it is, then that's good.

These puripika leaks always ends up being irrelevant in the end. :lol:

The nose of that girl looks pretty different than Rena's (It's thinner and points more downward) BUT that could be because of the big eye technology in puripika's fucking with her nose.

Yeah, current face-morphing tech paired with the fact that denim jackets are super en vogue right now makes it hard for me to believe for sure that it's her.
Eh, we'll see. I definitely hope that H!P doesn't even comment on it.

2ch are saying the writing on the purikura is identical to Ogawa's writing on her official photos.

Not that I care terribly much either way though.

Maybe Rena didn't want to give up being a Sailor Senshi with her "cousin" ...

Man if they knew about this and she's really not suffering from anxiety then I'm going to be really disappointed in them for using that as a cover :/

Especially since people were just praising UF the other day this is just so disappointing.

You'd think that someone that's already invested so much of herself into Hello Project would be more cautious about this kinda stuff. This is so disappointing...Again, if UF knew they really should've added new members. I don't think it would've been a mess. If they're fine putting new members in a group doing a world tour, I'm sure adding girls to KF would've been fine.

----
I'm not disappointed that she has a boyfriend. I'm just shocked that we're about to get a 6-nin KF.
