Long Time No News! Morning Musume portion

So, it's been a while since I updated this blog, and many news has been flowing. I wanted to share it with you guys but I've been so busy for the exam, and too many projects too. Finally, I already have a vacant time to update this blog.

So, this time, since many news are flowing around, I want to post an entry with the news of this group and that group (only in H!P of course). It'll be from the newest to the oldest news I missed. First, will be the Morning Musume.

1. Takahashi Ai Being the Lead Actress for the Valentine Drama "Koi Choco-Bitter Sweet Angel"
It's been announced that Ai-chan will be the lead actress for this Valentine Drama entitled "Koi Choco- Bitter Sweet Angel" (Eng: Chocolate Love-Bitter Sweet Angel). It's good to hear that Ai-chan will be part of a drama, a valentine drama, so it might be related to some romance and love. Her co-star is Sakurada Dori. 

Ai-chan's also in a conference with Sakurada Dori to promote the drama.There are some photos taken during the conference too.

and there's a short preview of this valentine drama:

2. 9th Generation Members First Official Photos
The awaited official profile pictures for the MM 9th Generation Members has been added to the H!P site. It's great to see the new gen profile pictures right now, it makes fans know them a lot more better.

The four members got a very incredibly cute pose. Mizuki looks a lot more professional with her poses. Erina really showing her modelling skills. Kanon's the best one, she smiles innocently cute. Riho has a lot of confidence just by looking at her picture. 

The members are looking great with their very first official profile pictures. Anyway, goodluck for them to the future. Hopefully, they'll start a very good beginning.

3.Takahashi Ai Graduating from Morning Musume and Hello!Project
This news has been spread out around the whole world, but I still want to share this to you guys. 
During the H!P concert last January 8, 2011, there's been an announcement made about Ai-chan who'll graduate in the end of Morning Musume's Autumn Concert. 

Here's Tsunku's Statement
This is the comment regarding Takahashi Ai’s graduation from Morning Musume 
Thank you for your continual support as always.
As announced directly herself on the stage of January 9th’s show at Nakano Sunplaza,
5th generation member, Takahashi Ai will be graduating from both Morning Musume and Hello! Project in Morning Musume’s concert tour this fall.
When the proposal for Kamei Eri’s graduation was made last year,
I told Takahashi Ai, “It’s about time you should consider the timing of your own graduation and what you want to pursuit afterward” as an advice.
The 5th generation members will have joined Morning Musume for 10 years.
Takahashi Ai is the 6th leader and has been in this position for 3 years and 7 months.
Takahashi Ai holds the record for being the longest in the group and the longest to hold the leader position.
Looking back, she has honestly carried the responsibility for all this time.
(In no disrespect to all former members and leaders of the group…excuse me)
I have talked with her about various things, such as her activities afterward
As announced in the new year concert, her graduation will be in Morning Musume’s Autumn concert tour,
this was the right time to make the announcement.
Since there are still more than half a year to go,
the 9th generation members have to familiarize themselves with Morning Musume’s music
and dances, to become self aware that they are part of the group.
Takahashi plans to properly finish her job as leader in the mean time.
Please be looking forward to what will become of Morning Musume.
Takahashi Ai will continue to be active in music, theater, and live events after her graduation.
Details will gradually be released.
Also, after Takahashi Ai’s graduation, Niigaki Risa will assume the leader position of the group,
and become the longest active member of Morning Musume
Morning Musume Producer
Takahashi Ai’s comment
It has been decided that, I, Takahashi Ai, during Morning Musume’s concert tour this Autumn,
will be graduating from Morning Musume and Hello! Project.
At the time when Kamei Eri, JunJun and LinLin’s graduations were decided,
Tsunku-san told me, “It’s about time Takahashi should think about your own graduation’s timing!”
which has gotten me thinking.
I will have been in Morning Musume for 10 years comes this August,
So I thought it will be a good time! to graduate in the Autumn Morning Musume concert tour.
As there are still around 9 months left, I will do my best as leader until that time to shape up this new Morning Musume.
I will be affectionate to the newly added 9th generation members as I try to teach them various things, everyone please rest assured.
Well, it's a little bit expected that Ai will graduate soon, but not this soon. I'm shocked hearing this news, since we just got the new members and Ai-chan, the leader, will graduate. She'll graduate around August or October, so, we can still expect for some new singlea with the new 9-nin MM. 
After Ai-chan's graduation, Gaki will take place as the leader. As for Ai-chan, she'll continue her work in the music and theatre world.
 Anyway, here are some pictures and a clip of her announcement

So, that's the latest for now. I'll continue updating news as long as I got the news and have time to post them.
