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.
