I am staying up waay too late watching an Ongaku Gatas concert from this summer. It has Yossie, Rika, Konkon (Konno Asami), Satoda Mai, Korenaga Miki, Noto Arisa, and Sengoku Minami. They are very good, and make me miss the old Momusu. They did an awesome version of Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari. If you have time, you should check it out on YouTube!

yup, Eri is the best Eririn.. i don't think Eririn nickname would fit with Erina..
for me, the best song berryz had is Tomodachi wa Tomodachi nanda.. the outfits, the PV, the girls and the songs are really good.. i don't like Yurina either because she seems boring.. lol.. i'm kinda hoping Tsunku would give Saki a chance to sing and dance since she's freaking awesome dancer..

i listened to all of their songs (both C-ute and S/mileage), but i prefer Cute because Airi is in it.. lol.. for me, S/mileage voice are really squeaky and their dance movements is really simple.. in the other side, C-ute dance are really amazing.. Saki N and Maimi dance really well..

Ongaku Gatas?? what is it?? okay, i will do it, but i have to prepare for my national exams.. also, i'm sure MM will success with this 9th gen.. they're simply awesome..

new pic for 9-nin Musume..


so happy to see Aika in center, but too bad Mizuki in 2nd row..

I guess that the official/unofficial nickname of the 9th Generation is "Kyuukies." Kanon's nickname is "Zukkii." Erina's is "Eripon." Mizuki's is "Fukuchan." Riho doesn't seem to have one yet. Now that they have nicknames, it's more real that a single will be coming soon.

A happy thing for me is that most of the graduated Momusu members have formed a new unit called Dream Morning Musume. The members are: Yuko, Kaorin, Kei-chan, Marippe, Nacchi, Yossie, Rika, Tsuji Nozomi (She will miss the tour because she's just had a baby), Makoto, Mikitty, and (ugh!) Koharu. I'm excited that a lot of the "Golden Era" members are reuniting. I wish that they could have gotten Gocchin (Maki), Konkon, or Aibon, but I can't have everything.

from what i know, Riho's nickname is "Yasshi".. yup, i think the single will come out soon.. and i hope they don't become the backup dancers..

yeah, i'm really excited about Dream MM.. we get awesome members.. it's like a dream.. lol.. also, i'm looking forward for their album, "Dorimusu 1".. and from what i heard, it will contain Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari (Dream MM version).. i wonder how it'll sound.. i don't think Koharu would fit the group because she's very young and the other members have awesome voice..

btw, do you think Dream MM will sell more than current MM ?? i hope that won't happen, beacuse it'll make MM overshadow by Dream MM..

It's possible because Dream MM has many members who were EXTREMELY popular before they graduated. I don't think that Dream MM will overshadow Momusu, but I think that if that happens, it will tell Tsunku that he shouldn't be so quick to push the older women out of Momusu. It will also push UFA to promote Momusu in ways that can only help. I cannot wait until Dream MM's first single. It was called the "Golden Era" for a reason. I still wish that they could have gotten Gocchin or Konkon instead of Koharu.

Yasshi, huh? It's cute. I agree. I think that Momusu works best when the lines are even divided and the fans can hear the voices of each girl. this was true even when Koharu was a member. We could hear that she can't sing. However, I know that Yasshi can sing, Zukkii can sing, and Fukuchan can sing. I didn't like Eripon's voice too much, but she's still worlds better than Koharu. Can you tell that I wasn't a Koha fan? LOL.

yeah, popular ex-MM members gathered minus Goto Maki and W.. Koha is popular because of kirarin revolution.. but her voice is a big NO.. she was helped MM sales back then although it not much.. well, i think MM should be a 13-23 years old members since Morning Musume means Morning Princess.. so many people want Ai-chan graduate for that reason.. yeah, UFA really should promote MM more.. just like Nanchatte Renai..

yup, i agree.. there are some fans who still wants to hear Sayu's voice (which i REALLY CAN'T stand).. Fuku-chan voice is really cute.. i've watched her audition when she sang Maji Bomber (by Berryz Koubou) and it was pretty good.. yeah, i know you aren't Koha fans.. me neither.. can you tell that i'm not Sayu fan?? lol..

I can tell. I think that Sayu is adorable, but she does have a weak voice. At least she can hold a tune, Koha never could. I understand your point about the age of the members, but I think that if the group is popular with a certain line-up that you don't mess with it unless the sales slip. At that point, you kick out the weak singers or the weaker dancers (Koha). We have a saying here in the US, "If it isn't broke, don't fix it." I understand when members want to go do other things. I just don't think that Tsunku should be so quick to kick the older ladies out. I agree with you that UFA does a terrible job promoting Momusu. They are letting that trashy AKB48 steal their thunder. Thanks for the heads up on Fukuchan; I will check out her audition. Peace!

Sayu is super adorable (that's why she can appear in TV a lot), but i can't stand her voice.. same with Koha.. i never understand about singing technique.. that's why i can't choose who's voice is better, Sayu or Koha.. but i'm sure Ai-chan's voice is the best from current H!P.. lol.. and i also think Koha is the weakest dancer especially in Shouganai Yume Oibito dance shot.. her hands movements is really funny.. lol.. i agree with you about Tsunku musn't kick out the older ladies, especially when Tsunku need her.. seriously, i think MM really need Ai-chan for now.. 9th gen vocal training with Ai-chan as their mentor.. i hope MM sales won't drop after Ai-chan graduation.. i'm sure MM can sell more than AKB48 if UFA promote them well..

I'm afraid that they probably will unless Tsunku pulls some magic out of his hat. It's is hard to replace an Ai-chan, just like it was to replace Nacchi and Gocchin. No one right now has the vocal ability to carry the group like Ai-chan did. I have hopes for Fukuchan and Yasshii though. I do believe that he will call up another girl from Eggs and possibly add another girl through an Audition after Ai-chan graduates. It would be interesting to speculate which Egg he would promote. Remember though that it was Tsunku's decision to talk Ai-chan into graduating before the Kyuukies were integrated into the group. If Ai-chan stays with UFA, she could join Dream MM, and that would be awesome! Have a good Thursday!

yeah, but MM still survive after Nacchi and Goto left.. and i hope MM will survive after Ai-chan left.. i have hopes in Aika, Fuku-chan, Riho and Kanon (because it seems Kanon really a hard-working person).. yeah, maybe in December or next January he will choose another girls for 10th gen.. and for the Egg, i hope he choose Tanabe Nanami or Miyamoto Karin.. yeah, i hope Tsunku has a brilliant idea to pump MM sales and popularity.. if Ai-chan join Dream MM, i'm sure Dream MM will sold more than current MM.. lol..

btw, have you heard about their 45th single?? it'll be release on March 23rd in 5 versions..

No, I haven't about the new single. Yay! That's awesome! We'll just have to wait another month to see how Tsunku is going to integrate Kyuukies. I'll look it up and keep an eye out for its title. Ihope that it's a cute, happy song like Happy Summer Wedding. That got the 4th Generation off to a good start.

The biggest rumor concerning Ai-chan is that she is going to go into acting with the Takarazuka Revue, an all-women who plays playing all the roles including the male ones. As far as the Eggs go, I think that Sengoku Minami would be really good too. She has been in Ongaku Gatas with Yossie, Rika, and Konkon for years, so she has learned a lot from them and also she's almost 19, which would bring another mature member into the group. She might be too old though, and I think that Tsunku really sees Aika as a potential leader, which would not happen as soon because Minami is older than her. I don't have a problem with Tanabe or Miyamoto. They both have nice voices and are cute.

i hope Tsunku give lines to new members and Aika + Sayu.. or even make them a lead singer .. lol.. i love Ai-chan's act but i love her voice more.. i hope she will still release a single or album just like Nacchi and Goto.. do you think she will marry soon??

i think Sengoku is good although i never hear her voice but i'm sure she's good because she's with Yossie, Rika and KonKon.. but i doubt Tsunku would pick a girl who older than Aika.. i never hear Sengoku's voice, is it good?? because if it's good, she can be a soloist just like Kikkawa.. yeah, i'm sure Aika can be a really great leader because she seems nice to all members..

Marry?!? I didn't even know that Ai-chan was seeing anyone. Of course, there is the weird fandom that puts her and Risa together as a couple. We knew that it's just some people's strange imaginations. I have heard that they are best friends though. I think that she will do a solo album or single pretty soon after graduation. She is leaving Hello! Project, but I don't think that she will be leaving UFA. Sen-chan has a decent voice and she has a super cute personality, but I agree that she would be better off as a solo artist or stay with Ongaku Gatas.

As far as line distribution on the new single goes, I totally agree with you. I like Mittsi's voice more than you do though. She's not up to Reina's, Risa's , Ai-chan's level, but I think the more that Tsunku works her, the better she will be. It might well be that Fukuchan is the one that steps up to be a lead. I just hope that he figures it out before Ai-chan graduates. Yossie was a great leader (I'm not just saying that because I'm a Yossie fanboy), but she did not seem to need to have a lot of solos. She got quite a few, but in the concerts that I've watched on YouTube, she seemed perfectly content to dance in the background and MC. She LOVES to MC. I think Mittsi (Aika) might be a leader like that.

Risa will have big shoes to fill for the next year or so after Ai-chan graduates. I really like her. I watched a few of of the KameGaki videos. They are hilarious! She has a great sense of humor. I just wish that they would stop bobbing her hair. She looks SO much better with long hair than she does with short hair.

lol.. who knows.. Tsuji was married after she graduated and now she has a happy family.. lol.. Ai and Risa are best friends just like Aibon and Tsuji.. i hope so, because i will miss Ai-chan's voice ..

i don't think Aika would be good MC but i'm sure she will be a good leader.. i love her voice too, it's sweet.. too bad Tsunku didn't use it too much, but i hope she will be a lead singer soon.. i think Fuku-chan or Yasshi would be the lead singers.. Yossie didn't got many solos?? i never know that because in SEXY 8 BEAT album, she seems get many lines (although not as many as Mikitty or Ai)..

yeah, i agree.. Risa shouldn't cut her hair.. i miss her long hair.. my favourite pairings in MM was GakiKame, TakaGaki and KameShige.. and after Ai-chan's graduation, it'll be over..

I just read on the SayuNii blog that the new single is actually titled "Maji Desu ka Ska," which could translate to "Serious Ska." Ska is the style of music that Oreskaband does VERY well. It's like reggae with brass instruments. I like ska a lot. If Tsunku produces it well, it should be a really fun and upbeat song. And like you said, it would be nice if it wasn't too Ai-chan/Reina heavy on the lines with everyone getting some good lines.

My all-time favorite pairings are IchiYoshi, TakaGaki, and TanaShige. With the younger girls coming in, I don't think people will be as willing to play that game with them. It just too weird.

Take care!
