Happy Birthday Meru!
I was definitely in the "WTF Who on Earth is this?" crowd when this girl got thrown into the front of Hatsukoi Butterfly, but after seeing her perform a few times I'm fairly impressed with her. I'm not in love with her or anything, but considering how new she is to the group and how young she is period (y2k
), I think she may be worth this push. She has a good amount of personality and actually performs very well. It wouldn't bug me to see her in senbatsu in their first single. Time will tell, though. Gotta love them out of nowhere surprises!
