i love LinLin since i saw and heard she sang solo "Aozora ga Itsumademo bla bla" at Platinum 9 Disco.. and i totally love her voice.. but yeah, Tsunku need to give them more lines.. now i hope Tsunku will give more than 1lines in every single to 9th gen..
i don't think Ai-chan and Risa will graduate together since it will be too hard to see 2lead singers go.. also, Ai-chan would be a soloist since she has incredible voice and i'm sure a lot of fans will support her.. i think Risa will stay in MM longer than Ai-chan because i don't see Sayu or Reina can lead MM.. XD but i don't know for sure..

I could see Reina, but not Sayu because she seems so flaky. Don't get me wrong, Sayu is adorable (from a male point of view). I actually think that she is cuter than Koharu. She was Koharu's mentor, but I think that she would have been better off with Eririn to show how to be professional and what it takes to be in a group like Momusu. I never really liked Koharu to be honest. She wasn't a very good singer or a dancer. She was just cute. For me, Eririn was the best dancer in the group. Reina might not make the best leader, but I do think she will get her turn before giving way to Aika, who WILL be a good leader.

Risa will be an awesome leader. She's professional. She works hard, and I can tell that she wants her voice to be its best. I like her voice better than Reina's. Ai has the best voice by far, but I really like Gaki-chan. I agree that Ai will be really successful as a soloist and an actress. I hope that we get to hear more from the 9th Generation than we did the Pandas. Tsunku under-utilized them, giving them few, if any lines in songs. I really think that is more of why they left than wanting to go solo in China. We will never know unless they speak up. Have a good weekend!

but i think Reina still need training to become a leader.. and i agree with you about Sayu.. i never really liked Koha too.. i don't like her voice and her dance but she and Sayu can be a dubbers for anime.. yeah, i do think Eri is the best dancer and Ai-chan is the second (because Ai-chan got too many lines).. and YEAH, Aika will be a really good leader because she's kind to anyone and i'm sure she'll be a good mentor for 9th gen members.. i love Risa too especially when she sing "How do you like this Japan".. also, i don't really like the way Reina sing.. yup, Pandas are the most underrated members in MM.. i really hope MM will released a great song like Kanashimi Twilight and sell more than 50.000 copies.. also, i just realized that Tsunku is clever.. he took 4members : 2 professionals (Mizuki -from H!P Egg- and Riho -she acted in Fashionable-) and 2 standard (Erina and Kanon)..

That is exactly what I thought when I heard that he had plucked Mizuki from H!P Eggs. I knew that Riho was going to make it because she was a "tarento" (talent). She is a professional already at such a young age, which is more than I could say for Koharu and unfortunately, Sayu. Surely, Tsunku is a mad genius. I would LOVE for him to write a song to make people remember why Morning Musume is the BEST female idol group in Japan. BTW, I agree that Sayu and Koharu would make good voice actresses. I hope that no former member of Momusu goes the route of a former AKB48 member into AV. I was so sad to see that, but it reinforced my opinion that AKB48 is no where near as classy as Morning Musume.

yeah, and Eri can be replaced by Riho as the best dancer in MM.. Riho can act and dance and her voice is good although it still need practice and training.. i think Koha and Sayu are the "personality" of MM.. and Aichan and Reina are the "voice" of MM.. MM is the 1st female group who sing and dance and surely is the best.. i would like to hear something like Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari.. yeah, i hope so.. i heard 1 of AKB48 member become AV actress and change her name.. i don't want that happen to H!P.. also, AKB48 use bikini for their PV.. i hope MM doesn't since i love their voice and personality not their bodies..

I love Momusu for their smiles, voices, songs, and personalities. I don't think about their figures until I see a photobook, then it's like, "Really? I didn't think that they were that grown up." Then I remember that they are all adults (except, of course, Mizuki, Riho, Kanon, and Erina). I cannot wait for the 9th Generation's first single! I hope that it is something really good like I Wish, Shabondama, or (hope! Hope!) Love Machine.

The only thing about Ai-chan's graduation that surprised me was the terrible timing of it. I mean Tsunku has just barely announced the 9th Generation and almost immediately announced Ai-chan's "voluntary" graduation. Someone on Jpopasia.com suggested that it was what he did to Nakazawa Yuko after he decided on adding a 5th Generation (Ai-chan, Risa, Konkon, and Makoto). Another person imagined that the conversation between Tsunku and Ai-chan went like this. Tsunku: "You're too old. Get out of my group!" Ai: "Okay." No matter how it went down, the timing sucked.

My favorite songs are in order: Shabondama (rocks my socks), Love Machine, I Wish, Kanashimi Twilight (Yossie's last single ), Koi no Dance Site, The Manpower!, Renai Revolution 21, Mr. Moonlight (More Yossie!), Kimagure Princess (only post-Yossie song that I really like), Chokkan 2 (gets stuck in my head), and The Peace! That's 11 for me. I also like Ai Araba It's All Right,Sakura Mankai, and Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari a lot. My favorite time period was just after the 5th Generation was added. Marippe, Maki, and Nacchi were still in the group.

By the way, I just read that Sayumi, not Reina will be sub-leader. Isn't that weird?

yup, the timing is very strange for me.. because Eri, Jun and Lin are just graduated, so it's a big lose for fans.. and now we must see Ai-chan graduate.. in MM, Risa and Reina are the only who has a good voice.. Aika and Mizuki are okay (for me).. and the rest 4 (Sayu, Riho, Erina, and Kanon) still need more training.. Ai-chan take about 35-40% lines in every MM's singles so it's hard to lose her..

i do think about this too.. and yeah, the timing is really sucks.. i hope she can stay longer in MM, at least until 9th gen are ready.. and i think Risa won't stay in MM too long after Ai-chan graduation..

i'm not listened to all of their songs yet because my iPod memory isn't enough.. XD
but i really love Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari.. i kinda wish Tsunku create a song like that..

yup, it's weird but Sayu is older than Reina so i think it's understandable if Sayu is the one who will be the sub-leader..

I completely forgot that Sayumi is older than Reina. Reina has such a big personality that she completely overshadows her fellow Rokkie. Other than Maki and Yossie, the only girl that I could never keep my eyes off was Reina. She has the best pout! Her singing voice is a little nasal, but it's WAY better than Sayu's

You can find almost every Momusu PV on YouTube. That's how I discovered I Wish, Renai Revolution 21, Sakura Mankai, etc. I keep searching for announcements of the next single. I want to hear how the Kyu-ties sound with the others. I called them Kyu-ties because "Kyu" is 9 in Japanese. It might be too easy to confuse that with C-ute though, so it will never catch on. LOL

yup, i agree with you.. i think Reina and Mikitty are the mature.. Eri and Sayu are the childish.. yeah, Reina can sing although not as good as Ai-chan and of course her voice is better than Sayu.. for me, the vocal ranking of current members (minus 9th gen) are : Ai-chan - Reina - Risa - Aika - Sayu..

i want to watch it but i don't have much time, so i think i will watch it when holiday.. i called them "Kyuukies".. it sounds like cookies.. XD i hope they release their first single soon .. i can't wait to hear it.. and also, i hope this single will sell well.. do you think they will sell more than 50.000 copies??

I think that it can with the right promotion and timing. If it showcases Momusu's class versus the trashy AKB48, then I think that it will. It might even sell 70,000! Hope, hope!

I rank the voices minus the "Kyuukies (Kyu-ties) this way: Ai, Risa, Reina, Aika, Sayu. I like Risa's voice better than Reina's, but that just my opinion. Tsunku seems to prefer Reina's; he is a genius and I'm not. LOL! Reina will definitely be taking the lead more often from Ai-chan's graduation on out.

What I loved (who am I kidding, I still love her!) about Yossie is that she had a strong voice and her unparalleled sense of fun. At her graduation, she made the crying girls laugh and she didn't cry herself even once. Risa called her "Ouji-sama," or "Prince." She was a flirt like Yuko, but the girls seemed to like it better from Yossie than they did from Yuko.

it's been a long time since MM sold 70.000 copies but i'm sure they can do it IF UFA promote them well.. it's heartbreaking when i know Eri, Jun and Lin last single only sold for 42.000 copies.. from what i know, most of AKB48's performance was lip-sync.. and MM sing live.. that's what make me loving MM more.. also, remembering 48 girls is quite bothersome for me..

i'm not a genius too.. but i prefer Reina's voice because she has similar voice with Eri (although i prefer Eri's voice) and i love Risa's voice when she sing How Do You Like This Japan.. she rocks in that song.. yeah, but i'm kinda hoping everyone get lines in every single..

she didn't cry at all?? wow.. that's cool.. what make Yossie graduated?? Risa is the "Father" for MM members and she called Yossie "Prince" ?? lol.. that's funny..

They never said why Yossie graduated. It was just announced that she was graduating when the tour ended in her hometown of Saitama, and that Mikitty would become Leader and Ai-chan, Sub-Leader. The sad thing about AKB48 is that they graduate people as often as Momusu, but unless it's one of the leaders, no one really cares. I'm sure that there are some hardcore fans who know all 48 members, but that's too much trouble for me. I didn't know that AKB48 lip-syncs their lives. If I went to one of those shows, I would be furious and want my money back.

For me, Shabondama will be more Eririn's song than it was Reina's. That monologue that she does in the middle is awesome and scary at the same time. Of course, if I had been her boyfriend, she would never have felt that way. But that's neither here nor there.

I know what you mean about the sales. The last Momusu single to sell over 50,000 was Nanchatte Renai with 70,299. The sale were helped by a telecast of the song with members of the Elders Club joining the current members. The problem right now is that Momusu's biggest competition (AKB48) is selling sex and they aren't. That makes their true fans happy, but sales aren't as high. Momusu really can't anything too sexy with the Kyuukies being so young. That would be so gross.

she missed her hometown, perhaps?? no one cares because they only know their favourite.. that's why if AKB48 lose 1 person, then no one realize it (except her fans).. and, yeah, i'll ask them to turn back my money.. i'll not spend my money just too hear lip-sync.. yeah, i know Eri is crazy.. and she's really funny especially when she's with Risa or Sayu.. i missed her already..

and Nanchatte Renai was sold with 70.000 copies because it's their 40th single and UFA really promoted them well.. i don't want they selling sex.. it's too gross.. and i think their true fans don't want that happen.. my friend said MM fans prefer go to their concert than buying their single or album.. i think it's true because we can see it from Eri, Jun and Lin graduation concert.. their last single only sold 42.000 copies but Yokohama Area was really full .. that's mean they still have big fanbase.. i'm happy with it..
