Haha, Momoko & Yurina had a difference of 31cm. Chiisaki and Iikubo is only 15cm. ^^

Yamaki is around 157cm, the same height as Ogata Haruna. Every other group has at least a member at 163cm.

Yeah, it's just that everyone else in CG is super short, makes Yamaki look taller.

They would just "sell" it a little differently, like have Haruna get up on her toes and have Chisaki slouch...

Actress Matsuoka Mayu has build a character on TV shows where she can't control herself talking about Morning Musume to the point where the people around her like Arashi members start to tune her out.

Lol. I mean that looks to be kind of a gag, but it would please me if behind all that UF was compensating her on the side to promote the group.

Alright, I suppose this is a fitting thread to talk about this. I wasn't particularly a big fan of Kanon from Angerme while appreciating and respecting her talents. But lately some of her tweets have been pretty emotional and open about having a previous idol life and her thoughts about her future and being inspired by other (former) idols. I never saw her as the kind of person to be this open what with her princess character in the past. By open I mean willing to show her weaknesses and worries = imperfections. I really applaud her involving her fans like this. She seems like an ambitious woman.

Her latest tweet (with pics) that got me thinking again:

グランギニョル観に行ってきました。めいみ、お疲れ様.今日は特にめいの頑張りにとにかく感動して、会った瞬間涙があふれ出したよ.感想は詳しくブログに書きます!時間かかると思うけど!
とにかくめいお疲れ様!!!残りの公演も頑張れ!!

A translation or more specific summary would be helpful to understand exactly what triggered your thoughts.

A while ago she had a tweet about not wanting to be forgotten now that she's not an idol anymore and kind of being in a mid life crisis.

The tweet above she visited Meimi and saw how hard she works at her current job. She was so moved with how she does her best/works professionally that she cried (pictures show her teary eyes as well).

Sometimes she has those type of tweets. I remember there was a period where she took a break from tweeting and she announced that officially. Then she came back again.

These are my pure thoughts based on what she wrote (I don't have direct quotes in front of me) but it feels like she is struggling with what she wants in life, acceptance and wanting to achieve many things. It doesn't have to be a big deal, but she does seem to think openly about her life.

While I would love to see Kanon get it together and fully achieve her potential, apparently there many people in Japan who enjoy just being irritated by her.

To meet it feels like Kanon suffers from bouts of depression the way she talks. Twitter being one of her outlets to express her feelings. I hope she finds herself eventually. She was always a favorite of mine and I hate seeing her so melancholy.

Starting over can be really, really hard. She was established as an idol, she had an audience and she was pretty well known. She was comfortable doing it because she was doing it for so long. There's probably moments of regret - not that she didn't want to expand her horizon, but leaving your comfort zone can be extremely difficult and some adjust better than others.

Today I discovered I enjoy v-u-den's "Shuwa" way more than I used to, and now I want to hear Tsubaki cover it.

Edit: I aslo want a JKM-like song for all of Hello! Project, that has group-based description lines instead of individual members.

a fan at the H!P Summer concert 2017 won an H!P poster signed by almost all the current Hello! Project members (no signature from Ogawa Rena). They got lucky in those gacha machines.

Hello! Wota Station #24


"Documentary of H!P Wota" @ 2:50

Last month's episode of Hello! Wota Station, wota went to a Tsubaki Factory mini and handshake event in Toyosu. He was very nervous meeting his favorite, Ono Mizuho. He talked about his first handshake experience with her.

In today's episode, they first showed how he practiced speaking to Ono Mizuho. He went to the recent Tsubaki Factory individual handshake event in Roppongi to try to speak her again. He saw her yukata outfit and he got even more nervous. He re-enacted how he mustered up the courage and met her. She was too pretty to look at. He just froze and died when she pointed at him. She remembered him from the Toyosu mini live event.

the other wota got his photo-op cheki again with Asakura Kiki. He talked about meeting and chatting with her. He asked what shuffle group was she supposed in for Hello! Project Summer 2017. It was the "I&YOU&I&YOU&I" shuffle with Nonaka, Kamikokuryo, Nomura.

After talking with doctors, she will need more time off from activities. They will continue to monitor her progress and check with her doctor. They apologize.

about the announcement, Wada Sakurako apologizes to everyone having to wait some more for Ogawa Rena. But shes glad and says thank you to everyone who is waiting patiently.
