Who do you think should be added from the 5 finalists to be new members of Morning Musume? I think that Tsunku should add 3: Riho, Aina, and Kanon. I am not sure Erina and Minami are quite up to the level necessary to be in the most successful girl group in J-Pop history. What does everyone think?

I don't think that Mogi has the maturity personality wise or in her singing to be a good member of the group. I do like Erina, but I would take Kanon over her because she has a better voice.

i agree with you about Mogi, but you know Tsunku.. he's really unpredictable so i think it's possible if Tsunku choose Mogi.. (although i don't want that happen)
what should we call Suzuki Kanon?? we have Suzuki Airi in C-ute and Fukuda Kanon in S/mileage.. XD

What you said about Tsunku is true, he chose 4 girls in the fourth audition instead of the announced 3. The biggest difference between the 4th generation 12 year-olds (Aibon and Nono) and Mogi is in their voices. Nono and Aibon have had great voices from day 1. Whereas Mogi will be another Koharu or Michishige, super cute, but a bit weak vocally.

For Suzuki Kanon, there are lots of nicknames for her that could work: Suzuka, Kikan, or Suzu, Or Maybe even reversing her first name to something like Nonka or Nokan. Do you have any ideas that might be better? Not knowing the kanji in her name kinda handicaps me.

yeah, mogi's voice isn't really good.. but remember, she become one of 5 finalist who still survive until now.. that mean Tsunku probably choose her.. and i think Tsunku always choose (at least 1 member) who has cute face + cute personality.. 5th-8th generation have cute members with cute personality and a bit weak vocally.. 5th gen = Konno Asami, 6th gen = Sayumi Michishige, 7th gen = Koharu, 8th gen = JunJun & Aika (for me).. well, i guess it's up to Tsunku.. XD

i think Suzuka is a good nickname.. love it..

*btw, sorry, my english is really bad..

Ninth Generation Announced! The new members are Riho, Erina, Suzuka (Kanon), and a girl from Hello! Project Eggs, Fukumura Mizuki. Mizuki was a Tsunku surprise as she wasn't even a finalist from the auditions. Morning Musume now has 9 members, which is appropriate because they are the 9th generation! I'm sad that Aina didn't make it, but happy that Mogi also wasn't selected. Momusu forever!

You never know with Tsunku. Until he makes a public statement on his decision, we won't know. This selection was different because it wasn't announced during the audition show. It was announced at the H!P Winter Concert, possibly because he knew it would be controversial. We have to trust that Tsunku knows which girls in H!P Eggs were more suitable for Momusu. I do agree with you about Saho Akari, she is cuter than Fukumura in my opinion. She is older too. We'll see how this works.

well, this is my first audition since i become MM fans so i don't really know about it.. and i trust Tsunku.. Ai-chan was selected by him when she was really young, and look at her now.. she's very professional.. i hope 9th gen can attract more fans for MM..

btw, it seems we dominate this forum.. XD

I hope so too mostly because I feel that AKB48 has stolen most of Momusu's thunder. I think that Momusu is WAY classier than AKB48, just my opinion. I became a fan of Momusu after Kanashimi Twilight came out in 2007, but I have watched the 3rd (Maki), 4th (<3YOSSIE! <3), and 8th (Aika) Generation audition selection shows on YouTube, and I thought it was the way that Tsunku did things. I was wrong. I think that having 2 established performers (Mizuki and Riho) in this generation will help a lot. I really hope that the younger girls will bring some fun and a little silliness back to the group. I loved how when Marippe, Yossie, and Eririn were together, the group seemed more fun to me. That's what is missing now...fun.

Yeah, we totally own this topic. LOL!

yeah, i do think so.. for me, MM songs are better than AKB48 but some people don't agree with me.. i think Tsunku added Mizuki(14) because there's a pretty big age difference between Aika (17) and Erina (13).. yeah, when they're only 5 (Ai, Risa, Sayu, Reina and Aika) i think they didn't have fun at all.. now, i think Suzuki Kanon have funny personality so i'm not worry anymore..

i wonder why people don't post anything on this forum..

That's possible that Tsunku wanted an older potential subleader, and that's why he pulled Mizuki out of H!P Eggs. I can't believe that Aika will be 18 in a week. This is as old a group as Morning Musume has had since the 1st generation. Ai-chan is 24, Risa <3 is 22, and Reina and Shige-chan are both 21. Yeah, I watched some of the auditions and Suzuka is really silly, which hasn't really been in the group since Yossie graduated.

Yossie is my all-time favorite Momusu memeber. I love the version of Shabondama with her and Eririn. Eri is swinging her head around so much I thought that she was going to get whiplash. LOL! Kamei and Marippe are my other faves. I like Risa a lot too. Other than Eririn, who is your favorite?

It's sad that no one else is writing here. I was hoping that more people would discuss this subject. I guess it can't be helped. sigh

i can't believe it too.. maybe that's why Tsunku want 10-17 years old member.. average MM members w/o 9th gen are 21 years old.. and average MM members w/ 9th gen are 17.3.. that's a big difference.. also, i can't believe Kanon and Ai-chan have 12 age difference.. XD i LOL'ed when Kanon said 'Moshi Moshi'..

i love that part too.. but i gained my love for Eri when i saw Resonant Blue Dance Shot version.. she's ROCK.. i love LinLin too.. she's funny and she love anime..

yeah, me too.. at first, i think at least 3-4 people will discuss this.. well, at least we can share our thought..

I never was a fan of the Pandas because I didn't really get much of a chance to see their talent. With the additions, I predict that Ai-chan and maybe Risa will graduate in the next year. If it is just Ai, then Risa will become leader and Reina will be the subleader. If both go, then Reina will be the leader and Sayumi will be the subleader. I really hope that we get a graduation-free year, but Ai-chan is 24 and she has started acting, so it might be time. I don't think (hope) that Risa graduates because she is my favorite current member. We'll see.
