I can't be surprised about this. I'm sure it's probably the best choice for her, and I really hope she continues to get well.




Doesn't stop me from being freakin' sad, though. :(

If she came back, there is no telling when her panic attacks will occur again. She will just end up making everyone wait and worry about her again. Worrying will just cause more panic. The cycle won't end. She doesn't want anyone to feel that way anymore.

^^ True, a friend of mine recently had a panic attack and totally flaked on an event she was expected to participate in. It was a social event though, and everyone understood and carried on. In a professional event, the constant risk of that happening would unfortunately not be tolerable. In fact she had to voluntarily downsize her professional career for that reason (along with just the overall stress levels). Anyway, I will really miss Maho. She was so goofily charming.

I wonder if it is possible for two wota to get along (or date) if one's kamioshi is the other's anti and vice versa?

If Country Girls aren't doing anything serious why couldn't we have Manaka informally re-join? I don't understand. :|

Plus at this point, CG do so little--what would be the point of adding her back in? And it would be especially messy if they DID add her back, and she needed to withdraw again.

It's been several months. Where the fuck is Ichioka's new group, UF?

We've been waiting since the 26th of June.
http://www.helloproject.com/news/7272/

In idol years that's an eternity. Ichioka is turning 19 soon. That's rather late for a debut as leader of a new group.

The thing is: they only have themselves to blame.
If they hadn't pre-announced it fans everywhere wouldn't be so anxious about it.

From the sounds of things, the debuts of Ichioka, Ruru, Momohime, Kawamura and Takase were decided when they were announced. So it could be that there's some roadblock with Ichioka's parents or something. Or, as Zunu said, they feel like she's still not ready. But in that case, make it a larger unit, have two co-subleaders and give them indie releases or online-only songs to see how fans react to them and give them practice.

Momohime and Takase I'm less worried about since they're part of the acting thing anyway, and Ruru and Kawamura got to debut, but it's just Ichioka who hasn't. I wonder if they were also perhaps waiting for the 20th anniversary auditions, since those were announced in July, and then ended up with Kenshuusei who need more time :lol:.

I don't particularly care about Ichioka one way or another but this is pretty unfair on her and her fans. I know things get announced super far in advance and that there are a lot of aspects we don't get to see. But still. The beginning of H!P's 20th anniversary would've been a good time to announce a new unit. I just hope it happens some time this year, or at least Ichioka gets to do something. She's worked hard, she should debut.

Really? Try defining the 'acting thing'? :giggle:

Because no one knows what it is.
Plus the fact that they already have an acting division.

In fact almost everything that came out of Takeshi Nishiguchi's mouth at that Trainees recital (back in May) is as vague today as it was then.

I agree with this completely.
Ichioka I could take or leave, but the potential of a new unit, of that many potential debuts, that's something that will be a huge blow if they don't fulfill their own promise.

I also felt like the Summer Tour was missing something. I don't see why they can't just do what they did with Tsubaki and announce the group formally and debut them later.

I also don't like how they're procrastinating with Momohime and Kurumi. If they're only going to be apart of the acting section then lets leave it at that. If we can have Aika's profile on the website,I don't see why they can't create a seperate section for the 2 girls to distinguish them from kenshuusei. The fact that they haven't made this distinction yet suggests they're still unsure about what to do with them and they're still in limbo.

I can't help but feel like management might have too much on their plate with the digital singles, 20th anniversary projects and the kobushi factory damage control to debut a new group right now.

Another thing I want to rant about is how overworked Juice=Juice are. They're just constantly doing lives and with Nanamin being kenin they must all be very exhausted.



That discussion was before she announced she was participating in the Summer Tour though. So other than her hokkaido activities preventing her, she could just re-join. I mean they're not really doing anything major anyway. The only thing holding her back is the fact that she's a graduated from the group.

Hopefully that's when it'll be announced if not on the last day of the winter cons.

@JonCC: Hey, don't blame me :lol:. They've been in plays/musicals since their debuts were announced, at the very least. Ichioka's been in concerts, sure, but that's not what her fans were promised.

Perhaps they are waiting for taping day so it’s immortalized forever on disc. *wishful thinking*

Along with whoever is sick that day because god forbid you put that extra footage up you record for every other internet based /tv show and let us actually get our money’s worth on a concert purchase.

Winter concert use to be a great time to announce stuff but damn if the flu isn’t giving the H!P girls a beating this year.
