Morning Musume to change its NAME? (゜◇゜)

Yep! That's right, Morning Musume will change its name, or most likely to modify it.
Here is the translation of Tsunku's announcement:
From the bottom of my heart, I have to thank you very much for always supporting Morning Musume。 and Hello! Project.
Without delay, I have an information concerning Morning Musume。.
There will be a modification concerning the group's name Morning Musume。.
From the 1st of January 2014, the name of the group Morning Musume。 will be "Morning Musume。'14" (モーニング娘。’14 in Japanese). The way of reading the group's name is "Morning Musume One Four".
On 2014, Morning Musume。 kept this group's name for 17 years. From now on, to leave no doubt like "About when has this single song "XXX" been released!?" or "During which period did the member "XXX" take part of Morning Musume。?", the year will be displayed and the group can continue its activity after this for 10 years, 20 years, 30 years.
Therefore, the 1st January 2015, the group's name will become "Morning Musume。’15" (Morning Musume。 One Five).
Well, it might become confusing and might give up lol, but at any rate, from the New Year's Day, please support those girls who will become "Morning Musume。’14"!
The 55th single of Morning Musume。 '14 will be released on 29th January 2014. From now on, a new feeling will start!

 I was pretty surprised when I read the announcement since it's very unexpected for it to happen and I still need to absorb everything as much as I can about the Momusu-changing-name-situation.

OKAY! So yeah~ I thought finally that's it's a pretty good idea and a little amusing (or funny) LOLOLOL It will be an easy indicator for all fans, especially the new ones, to easily know which year have this MM line-up something.

Just as I read the comments about the whole announcement, I found one comment that caught my attention.
Funny eh? Morning Musume '48. I will surely look forward for that one. By that time, I'd be 51 years old. LOL But still, changing Morning Musume's name into "Morning Musume 'XX" is just so 'not-too-catchy'. Keeping the original name is so much better than anything. We'll atleast, the "Morning Musume" is still there, or I'll freak out if Tsunku change everything.

Even if we protest and do everything to keep the original name, we actually can't do anything about it 'cause Tsunku (and UFA) only have the power to do anything for this group. So let's just deal with it and support them. We might love the new name as time passes by. I understand that everyone is now freaking out and want to kill Tsunku because of it, but hey, what about making this change into a more 'POSITIVE' energy, and be excited about it? 。◕‿◕。

I honestly freaked out for a while, but I know this name will be in pretty much good use.
