Murakami Megumi Murakami Megumi, Original member of C-ute and first member to leave the group.  Megumi left C-ute in 2006, after 4 indies single, 1 album and already recording their major debut single. 
Murakami Megumi was at the point of her "graduation" one of the main vocalists of C-ute and had been in more sub-units than any other girl (ZYX, Sexy Otonajan, B-side group for H!P All Stars). Like stated, she also already recorded C-ute major debut single Yuki ga Chirari, where she was the lead with Suzuki Airi. 
In the last half of 2006, however, Megumi was supposedly spotted with a boyfriend and pictures of this were leaked. On October 31, 2006 Megumi officially left Hello!Pro and C-ute, because she wanted to focus on school.  Megumi is currently back in the public eye. She joined a dance agency called Wants in 2011 and is active on Instagram and Twitter. She is still close with Umeda Erika and Arihara Kanna and went to see C-ute in concert several times. 
I adore Megumi. …

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: How I got to know C-ute!

Welcome to my first post for my C-ute goodbye tribute. Gosh I can not believe this is really happening, AGAIN.
I got to know abou C-ute around their Campus Life/ SHOCK era. I was already a big fan of Momusu, Berryz and S/mileage, yet C-ute never really got me until this point. I was a big fan of SHOCK, which might shock you. I love the song and Airi's voice is pure love. I actually remember thinking Airi must be some kind of solist with permanent backsingers.  I knew Airi from Buono! and Nakki was also a familiar face due to Guardians 4. Yet Chisa, Mai and Yaji were new faces and around this time I couldn't really keep them all apart (thank god for different hairstyles). When C-ute released Campus Life in 2010, it was a match made in heaven. I was and still am a sucker for MV's that are outside and I loved the outfits and the dance. This was actually the first cd I ever bought from C-ute and I still love it very much.  The songs after this really got me addicted to C-ute,…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~ Masterpost
Ahhh, how did this day arrive so soon? I can not believe I am actually starting my masterpost for my goodbye to C-ute... I am already crying all over the floor. Someone please stop me, 
As with Berryz Koubou, I really really want to pay this group tribute by doing all sorts of posts about them. I will actually do it the same way as with Berryz. Which means there will be posts about the girls themselfs, How I got to know them, some of my favorite songs/albums and much more. 
As we get closer to their graduation/disbandment concert the post might get smaller as it will hurt more to write about these wonderful girls. Yet let's do this! Please do give me your thoughts on every post and how you are feeling these days!

Buono! Dakara!

Afbeelding
A week ago Buono! disbanded. Gosh, I can not believe Buono! ended.
Buono! was a rock-pop idolgroup that released songs for the anime Shugo Chara.
The group started in 2007 with Tsugunaga Momoko, Natsuyaki Miyabi and Suzuki Airi. They released 14 singles, 3 albums, 2 mini albums and 2 best of albums. 
Buono! is for me and a lot of other fans really special. They introduced us to idol and showed us the world of Hello!Project. Without Buono! I would have never been the fan I am today.  Buono! might have been one of the most stable and succesful units Hello!Pro has ever known. They have been active for 10 years (with some pauses in between) and it might be the only unit who stayed this popular without the members leaving their original groups. 
Buono! will always have a special place in my heart. Their songs gave me hope and made me smile during times I couldn't do it myself. I preformed one of their songs at school, eventhough I was scared to do so. I saw them preform live and went t…

H!P ideas: Graduation Albums

Afbeelding
I love Hello!Project. I adore all the girls and the song make me incredibly happy. Having been a fan for many years, I ofcourse have some wished I would love to see become reality. In these pieces (H!P Ideas) I wanna talk about some of the ideas I have and how I would like them to take place! Have any ideas of yourself? Please tweet them to me!
Graduation albums Maybe this idea is like one of the most mainstream ideas if you ask fans. Don't we all want to hear our favorite member sing more lines? But when our favorite graduates, that voice might end up being never heared again.. Which brings me to my idea: Graduation albums. 
This idea actually goes back to the Hello!Cover periode, where a few Hello!Pro members got to release covers of Hello!Pro songs through Itunes and some even got singles and albums. It was amazing to hear some girls sing solo covers of historic Hello!Pro songs. Yet after Niigaki Risa's graduation this stopped. 
My idea would be to bring this back. When a g…

H!P Review: Michishige Sayumi "Sayuminglandoll~Saisei~" Original Album

Afbeelding
Let's all take a trip into Sayumi's personal dream world and have a look at the Original Album to her play! I couldn't be happier to finally have Sayumi back and her first album is a dream coming true. Here are my thoughts and feelings about all the tracks!
1. Europa ~Mukashi Mukashi [Reading]  I love the music under this reading. Sayumi's voice is really soothing when she reads the beginning of the story. A beautiful piece which makes me think of how happy I am Sayumi is back. It's beautiful.
2. Danchou Ganashi no Doll Bako [inst] A music piece which really confuses me. It actually kind of gives me a headache, but that might just be the point as I hear Michishige's play is also really weird and confusing, but beautiful at the same time.
3. Saisei ~Watashi wa Koko ni Iru wa~ The main song. I am a big fan of the intro. This song is really strong and so incredibly Sayumi. I really like the effects on her voice, as it fits the theme and her voice so well. I like how…
