It's like this every year, isn't it? I remember one con a while back where most of Berryz were out sick at the same time. I think last year (or the year before last) a lot of Country Girls also got the flu pretty badly.

Hey Guys! I haven't logged into this place in a while (I'm more active on tumblr and twitter now). I felt like this would be news worth hearing since mm-bbs and JPlop members are being allowed to vote.

They're hosting an annual Hello! Project Fan Award which allows you to pick your favorite fan accounts based on the groups or members they support. So you could vote for Most Dedicated C-ute fan of Best Takagi Sayuki fan, for example. The only answered that's required is e-mail, so if you can't think of an answer you can just skip it. You can also vote for yourself lol. Here's the link to voting: https://goo.gl/forms/Wt2CtFeF9XJ56FbS2

I would totally appreciate it if you guys voted me for Best Tokunaga Chinami fan or Most dedicated Berryz koubou fan <3.

The people who are running it as far as I know aren't tumblr fans, they are just including people who do use tumblr. You don't have to vote for any tumblr accounts, I mainly only voted for twitter accounts. I just stick to tumblr and twitter because the fandom's a lot more calmer there.

The... the fandoms are calmer? Twitter is full of wota calling the girls ugly and Tumblr is full of in fighting between different girls' fans. I mean... the vitriol that was spit about Taguchi weeks before anyone actually knew anything on Tumblr was crraazzzyy

The Japanese twitter fandom might be crazy but from what I've seen, all the western fans do are make memes and retweet news haha. Maybe it's the fans I don't follow. Fandoms are pretty annoying wherever you go, but I choose to surround myself with those who aren't as involved in drama.

The H!P fan awards thing is a terrible idea because nobody gives a fuck about who likes X more. It's just gonna alienate people, stroke a few egos and generally be messy. Also, the categories are too vague and everyone will only receive 1-2 votes because nobody's gonna know who anyone is. There are also many different ways to be a fan of something/someone and express your love for said thing/person, there's no need to have a bullshit popularity contest because there's no real definition of a "best" fan anyway.

Also also, H!P fans on Twitter are awful for the most part and are really obnoxious/annoying. They're much worse than Japanese fans (not counting 2ch, but 2ch's 2ch lol) from my experience. Then again, Tumblr's absolutely horrendous on a different level and I avoid it like the plague. I don't want anything to do with that cesspool of a website :crazy:.

Spoiler: show
My Twitter's terrible too, but nowadays I just shitpost about Shingeki no Kyojin mostly... :fear:

I got so much to say about the Tumblr fandom so often but I generally keep my mouth shut because no one cares about that lol.

Twitter is okayish, depending on who you're looking at.

At least it isn't a constant battle to the death like H!O.

And I agree about the fan vote. We used to have things in the Harry Potter fandom called BNF's which stood for "Big Name Fans" and it kind of made people a little insufferable, so I don't really like popularity contests. If we had BNF's in this fandom though it would probably be iceymoon and Eric ("Berryz Genius") who is so much of a meme at this point people actually boo'd when he got picked in Houston to be interviewed because HE ALWAYS GETS PICKED. He took the booing in stride though.

I'd probably put Bekah in there too, since she was part of that "Cruel" project for awhile and actually released a digital single in Japan.

And that's the thing. I'm friends with several H!P fans (somehow lol), and they're totally fine, but I've blocked/unfollowed many people over the years because they've either been really annoying or something about them has put me off.

Also, the "best H!P forum" category made me laugh. Can I pick "none of them" as an option? :fear:

Jplop not being on there is actually lame, considering how many of those forums lurk here to get news from Amped.

^ when I looked it wasn't on there, but it could have just been a formatting error or something I dunno

Honestly, Amped probably deserves some votes, I'm not really sure where to put him though. Not a BNF kinda person but he does a lot for the fandom. Mizuki fan I guess?

Vote for me! Biggest Suu fan. Oh wait, that’s not an option, never mind.

Fan votes for fans just sounds so lame. I’m always like, who? Fan votes for the girls. That’s always fun! I always love to see who is the international fan favorite.

They have two major polls for fan votes for the girl, I know Sato Masaki won the first one (run by Hello Online). I don't think the results for the other one have been released yet.

So the Japanese Fandom and the Western fandom agree on Sakura, Kudo, and Masaki. Ishida seems to be agreeable as well.

I'm SUPER surprised about Miki's place in the Western poll, there are so many haters of her that are vocal I kinda thought she wasn't liked. Turns out to be another Masaki case and it's the vocal minority.
