Mano Erina's Graduation Announcement (Translated)

It has been announced that Hello! Project's ONLY soloist at the moment will be graduating on February 23, 2013 =(....Isn't it too soon????? I see no reason at the moment as to why she would graduate already, she's not that old yet...and why decide this just right where she's really groing into me? Seriously, the last single she had was awesome enough for HP standards! So I'm really sad about this news......But I'm looking forward for a better Mano Erina in the future..Gambatte!

Berryz Kobou's FLASHMOB! Who wants to JOIN?

 Ready to dance? Let's do some FLASHMOB with Berryz Kobou!

Morning Musume's Billboard Japan Interview

This is a repost from Hello-Online...

--The Tanaka Reina Band Project has started, right? This is a development that hasn't happened before even if you look at the entire Hello Project. How did this come about?

Tanaka Reina: It's not that I took the initiative and said that I want to do it, but I've always talked to Tsunku-san about liking singing, and when he said to me, "I'm thinking of putting together a band. What do you think?" I was like, "Huh? OK!" Then it was explained to me that we're gonna diligently start from square one and gather members through an audition, and now the audition is being held.

Morning Musume 50th Single debuts at No. 2

My prediction with Morning Musume's 50th Single proved me right! They debuted at No. 2 selling 56, 139 copies on it's first day release! It's amazing that this sold higher than Ai-chan and Gaki's graduation single beating there weekly sales w/c were approximately  56,000 and 50,000 respectively.

RE-POST! Ai-chan Reveals the Strength Behind Hello! Project's 15 Year Legacy!

This originally from Asianbeat and I think it's worth sharing.

I've written about Morning Musume and Hello! Project's connections to the outer world on a number of occasions in my previous publication, "J Pop Culture Observations." My interviews with Ai Takahashi in particular received a positive response from people in Japan and all over the world - this occasion marking my fourth interview with her.
