We were worried, but Chisaki looks damn happy. She fits in really well and I am glad she was chosen for MM. I love seeing her get along with baby Akane and the other girls.

Seeing now that Ayano is actually a real goofball, she fits in super well with Angerme. (She's also not as tall as I thought... just really skinny so it throws me off?) I was very happy Funakki was chosen for Angerme as well, so I have no worried for Angerme. I love their noisy group personality.

The only group I'm worried for and I think alot of people are is Juice=Juice. Yuka is a good leader so I know she will try to integrate Ruru and Nanami as best she can, but the whole thing feels awkward because of how stable J=J was and because of Nanami's age difference. Also I had pegged Ruru for a cool dance type and hoped MM or a new group would be her future, so the mature group that J=J has become known for feels ill fit. Nanami is young, but I can see her having the mature vibe of J=J though... which throws me all out of wack for what to think. At the end of the day J=J is my least favorite group in H!P after Tsubaki..... so perhaps some change is what is needed to jump start them. It worked for Angerme? Heck maybe even give them a name change too. Anyone worry a graduation may be around the corner? Though I think the truth is that Kobushi and Tsubaki are just too young as groups to have things shuffled so drastically for them so management decided against it. They probably want them to establish themselves more... I mean Tsubaki only just got new girls. (Still... Nanami would have been a great addition to Tsubaki....) Its nothing to stress over... I'll just stay tuned and see what happens. I'll know how I'll feel after the first single with the new girls.
Hooooollllddddddd me... what ever lies beyond this mooooorrrrrrrrnnnnnniiiiinnngggg...

Nanami wouldn't fit into Tsubaki imo. She's not... goofy enough?

She works in J=J. She's mature, serious and a hard worker. Her not being one of the youngest members would be weird in another group imo.

Also, Ruru would be wasted in MM。. They don't know what to do with the girls that aren't Fukumura, Masaki or Sakura. They don't utilise Nonaka enough, for example (her lead in Jealousy Jealousy only happened because Masaki was out). In J=J she has a greater chance of shining.

Though I do feel like someone in J=J might graduate soon. People were a bit worried about Karin but I think she'll hang around a bit longer (maybe until she turns 20). I dunno. They'll be fine, though.

In those solo shots: Funakki looks so idol, Nanami could be in her 30s, Karin reminds me of back-in-the-day Ryoko Hirosue.

When I see the group picture all I can think is that finally there's a girl who looks the same age as Karin does XD~! I've always felt like Karin just didn't have the face for J=J's mature image so I"m really glad Nanami's there to help balance it out. Karin looks less out of place now.

I've really warmed up to Chisaki being in MM after seeing her interact with Akane (Akane seems so much happier now that she seems to connect with more) and after seeing how she is with the group. It didn't really show much when she was in Country Girls, but in MM it strikes me that Chisaki is a LOT like Riho. They're both shy, awkward girls with a lot of talent and a lot of drive to perform well. She's filling in that personality type that had been lacking since Riho graduated.

This is a benefit I can get behind. Back when Karin's hair was at it's shortest sometimes I thought she looked more like an 11 year old. It's not to that degree now, but the sentiment is there. :lol: Listening to "Fiesta" I'm still not thrilled about her voice, but I'm hoping she'll be pulled along rather quickly working with the rest of them - and I imagine she'll sound better in general during their more calm songs.

She is a loooottt like Riho, which the Japanese should take to, but it's causing some kerfluffle on Tumblr because the West seems to hate Riho.

I'm on wait and see mode with Chisaki. She looks rather nice with Momusu in the Jealousy Jealousy performance so I'm warming up to her.

I wonder if that persona will continue or if she'll adopt a cooler attitude.

Not that it matters but I'm a westerner that couldn't stand Riho (up until just before she graduated) yet really really likes Chisaki and admires their similar appearance. I'm doubtful I'll start to dislike her even if she becomes a line-hog and gets 5 photobooks before a backgirl senpai gets their first.

Morito Chisaki does not understand why there are so many more girls in Country Musume now.

new announcement regarding Ichioka Reina, Takase Kurumi, and Kiyono Momohime situation :

They will form two different Hello! Project groups in the future. The groups will have different forms of activities that is different from a conventional idol group. Ichioka Reina is the leader of new Hello! Project group. In addition to becoming a group that improves with singing and dancing, they aim to be a "performance" group with body expression.

Takase Kurumi and Kiyono Momohime will be in a new Hello! Project group with song and dance with expressive power. It will be also a group with elements of theater (drama, comedy). They want to form a group with an image of a "small theater troupe" by adding new members to join them.

The new groups will begin activities this Summer to Fall. They also plan to have both groups have joint activities. They hope you can just wait a little longer.

So what have they been doing for the past year? :hmmm:

Well, at least there's news. And it seems they've reinterpreted the vague 'theater division' to 'a group with an image of a small theater troupe'.

Planning? Waiting for talent to bloom in Spring? Waiting for free agent idols to graduate local idol groups?

Hello! Project is about have 8 groups soon.

Planning seems likely. I don't think any of us really know how much time it takes behind the scenes to plan/budget for new groups (and auditions), and I imagine new staff (managers) that will have to be or have been hired. We probably wouldn't have even known about any of this for a few more months had it not been for that seemingly unplanned announcement at the Kenshuusei Test.

well, the theater group probably isn't going to be either of them. Berryz and C-ute are not theater focused groups.

They also waited probably because Tsubaki Factory has so much momentum right now. That wouldn't be fair to start a new group when Tsubaki is still new themselves.

To be fair, last fall UF did have to deal with Kobushi breaking down so debuting/proceeding with/showing the intention to start new groups when a recent one is already falling apart wouldn't look very well and probably be difficult to manage. /shrug
