Tsugunaga Momoko: Leaving with her pinky up

Afbeelding
Tsugunaga Momoko will be graduating from Country Girls and Hello!Project tomorrow. Momochii has been in Hello!Project for over 15 years and will now become a kindergarten teacher!
Ahhhh, The last of Hello!Pro kids is going to graduate and her graduation is already tomorrow. I can not believe how fast this day has come. Graduations are hard. It is weird to see a girl grow and do all these amazing things in Hello!Project and then one day they graduate and you never see them anymore. And Momochii, well she is the idols of idols. She is in the same range as Michishige Sayumi if you ask me. Momo has been active for 15 years, she has been in many succesful groups and hse has even had her own solo songs and now even an album! Momoko is not only an amazing idol, but she has also shown us these last few years what an awsome mentor she has been to Country Girls. It must have been really hard on her to be the only one of her group not wanting to graduate and transfer to another group with a lot…

New System predictions

Tomorrow Hello!Project will (most likely) announced what they are going to do with their new reorganisation for their 20th anniversary,  A video was uploaded on the Hello!Pro Station channel about this.  Three Kenshuusei will officially be promoted, while three Country Girls members will be moved to other groups as "concurrent" members.
My thoughts First I want to talk about my thoughts on this whole matter. I am always for new and exciting ways to keep H!P fresh and dynamic. I absolutely understand that H!P is a company that has to make money.  There are a lot of groups and girls with a lot of potential in H!P right now, but I understand that management wants to keep up the fresh and new act for as long as they possibly can. They are losing a lot of fans due to C-ute and Tsugunaga Momoko graduating, so what to do?
The reorganisation is something no-one was expecting. A group becoming a part time thing, girls moving groups and other girls hearing about they debut before they…

Country Girls, Gomen ne

Everybody must have heared the news concering Country Girls. Here is a short summary: After this years Hello!Pro Summer concert tour, Country Girls will be switching to a new system. Morito Chisaki, Yanagawa Nanami and Funaki Musubu will join another H!P Group, while Yamaki Risa and Ozeki Mai will focus on their studies. Country Girls' will not disband, they will only be active during school breaks and holidays, and release digital singles. 
What a news. This actually just means that three girls will get new main activities, while two girls will only be part-time idols. There isn't any info about which group Chii, Yanamin and Musubu will join and if they will stay togheter. At first it seemed as though the girls came with the idea themselfs or that at least Risa and Mai said they wanted to focus on school, but not leave the group. Yet it now seems that management just wants to shake things up and decided that Country Girls will enter this new system. The girls themselfs got t…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: The day before

Afbeelding
The Day Before Tomorrow is the day. I can not believe we are here again.  C-ute is ending their last full day as a group and tomorrow they will all start their new lives.
Time went so fast. When they announced their disbandment I was in shock, eventhough it had been long coming.  Seeing a group that has been in H!P for so long disband is so hard. I haven't been posting this last few days due to migraine, work and the fact that making these posts is hard. I just ramble on about nothing and end up with weird posts. I am really sorry for this. C-ute might have had a smaller impact on my life than Berryz Koubou, they are still so precious and important for me. I adore them so much.  Tomorrow will be a hard day. For them, for the other members of H!P, for Tsugunaga Momoko, for Tsunku, for the other H!P Kids, for Megumi, Erika  and Kanna, for their managers and staff, for their fans and for me.  I hope from the bottom of my heart that they will have a beautiful Final Squall and that the…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: Yajima Maimi

Yajima Maimi Yajima Maimi, the leader of C-ute and one of the oldest H!P Kids. Maimi has been one of the centers of C-ute and was also the leader of H!P for quite some time.
Ah, Leader, beautiful Yajima Maimi-san. I love Maimi. I think she is really pretty and her voice colors so well with Airi's. I am a big fan of her leadership in C-ute and with H!P. She seems to be quite firm, but friendly and she really teachers her juniors well. I adore her smile and gosh does she have an amazing body.  Maimi has been centering C-ute songs with Airi since the very beginning of C-ute. She was always infront and even had both colors that are populair for front members (pink and red). Maimi always has this easy-going, relaxt aura around her, but she also sometimes seems a bit of an air head?  I am such a big fan of Maimi as a H!P leader. When she announced to members that they would be joining a certain group or that a new group was formed with them, she beamed with joy. She is so genuine, it ma…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: Nakajima Saki

Afbeelding
Nakajima Saki Nakajima Saki, also known as Nakky, the girl who always looked way younger than she actually is.  An amazing dancer and a girl who can put a lot of emotion in her facial expressions. 
I think Nakky might have been the first C-ute member I actually knew. She was, ofcourse, a member of Guardians 4, which is the first H!P group I was a huge fan of. I love Buono!, but Guardians 4 was a whole other thing. Nakky was however the member I liked the least out of the group.  While Nakky was not my favorite in Guardians 4 nor in C-ute, yet I always saw her appeal. Her voice might not be everyone's favorite thing in the world, but there are some songs that she sounds soooo amazing in. I love how she looks, as she has this adorable innocence over her, which for some reason actually is sexy?  Saki also has some of the most beautiful lips in H!P. They are so beautiful! She is also a great actress and it does not suprise me that she wants to do something with this after her graduati…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: Suzuki Airi

Suzuki Airi Suzuki Airi must be the most popular and succesful member of Hello!Pro Kids. She has been in a lot of Sub-units, she has a lot of (amazing) solo songs and she has been the main lead vocalist of C-ute since they started. And she is also a succesful model!
Airi is my favorite C-ute member. I love Airi. I think Airi is one of the most beautiful members of Hello!Project, past and present. She is super funny and such a dork. Her voice is one of my all time favorite voices and I love all her solo songs.  When C-ute announced they were going to disband, I was so afraid Airi would stop singing. I love her voice so much. However, Airi announced she will be going solo in the spring of 2018! So we do not have to worry about not hearing her beautiful voice anymore! Yet I also understand how hard Airi's time in C-ute must have been. Every member of an idol group always wants to be the center/lead vocalist, but with Airi... She was the lead from the beginning and had some ups and do…

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute~: Meeting C-ute

Afbeelding
Meeting C-ute In 2014 my dream came true of meeting Berryz Koubou and C-ute. When Berryz was going on Haitus I talked about my experience meeting them, so I will now go on with that post by telling you guys about meeting C-ute. 
It has been 3 years since meeting the girls, but it is a memory I will never ever forget. I went to Paris with my boyfriend, my brother and his friend, non of them are H!P fans. First thing I did was buying the BerryzXC-ute cd, so I could get a ticket for the handshake event.
I actually was more excited for this, than the whole concert. I wanted to meet the girls, tell them how much they mean to me and all the things they did for me.  In reality I was a mess. I didn't cry, but I was STAR struck. The girls were tiny, but so beautiful and radiant.  Let me tell you about what happend during the handshake event when I got to C-ute. Berryz Koubou was first, after which we moved on to C-ute!
Yajima Maimi (Girl in red is me. I guess I was talking to Maimi or Nakky) …

Arigatou~Mugen no C-ute!~: Okai Chisato

Afbeelding
Okai Chisato Okai Chisato, once a background member now a lead vocalist.  Only 8 years old when she joined Hello!Pro, yet such an important member. Chisa has had her own solo releases and events, her own dance cover group (Team Okai) and she got to upload a lot of dance covers of C-ute's youtube channel. 
Like said before, Chisato was always a background member. Even when the group was losing members, she was still in the background. Fans did notice the potential Chisa had, yet she had to wait a long time to be pushed. In 2010, Chisato finally started to get time to shine and before we knew it she got a lead position in C-ute! Chisa is one of my top Hello!Pro members! I adore her energy, her dancing and her voice and gosh is this girl beautiful! Chisato has such great humor and is always such a pleasure to watch preform! When your eyes aren't draw to Airi, it will be Chisato for sure! When I just started to become a fan, I never understood why Chisato didn't get any lines,…
