SAKI SHIMIZU
Berryz Kobo
Age: 22


Who? The one and true Captain in Hello! Project, known particularly for her dancing skills. She is also tiny and even if she's always been the oldest member in Berryz, she arguably used to look like the youngest one during their early days.


Cap'n singing Dearest :3

Being a member of High-King gave her some opportunities in special performances, too:


What comes to your mind about Cap'n?

Saki Shimizu will always be memorable for me because when I saw Berryz in New Jersey she was the only one I actually found myself able to talk to during the autograph session!

Plus she just looked adorable during her time there:

Yes, blurry screenshot from a 480p video doesn't do her justice, but those who were there with me should know what I mean, seeing her with our own eyes.
ねぇ、笑って?

RIHO SAYASHI
Morning Musume 9th Generation
Age: 16


Who? The current lead singer and dancer of Morning Musume '14, referred to as ace by some. Occasionally weird.


Performing with Maimai from C-ute

Weirdo:


Speak now! For it is Riho's week. Or speak later, that is fine as well.

Love her or hate her.  In a group of amazing girls, she is without a shadow of a doubt the ace.

I remember watching Riho auditions clips, she seemed too good to be true that I was afraid that she wouldn't get picked. Just imagine if she ended up on another idol group or something  :nervous

She was already already a fantastic performer when she started, but she's still keeps getting better like a true ace. Some clips:


moonlight night 2011


moonlight night 2014


She has different kind of goofiness. She comes across to me a lonely, studious kid who's never had a chance to goof around with kids her age before she became an idol.  :lol:

Love this moment; Riho's first encounter w/ a lighter:


dat Riho glare:



Also love the saga of Basil-kun and Mint-kun.


Here's a comic about Momoko giving Riho some seeds to plant as a Mint-kun replacement:

(Yes I realize the switch is late, I got completely distracted by MM live in NYC and now I'll have to wait until I'm done working for the day before I can update)

^ I think we were all amazed when Riho passed the audition because she seemed too good to be true. :lol:

Yet as good as she seemed back then, the more time goes by and the more she grows, the more I'm impressed and enchanted by her. She's such a force and a natural performer with great expressions and stage presence. There's a reason why she's in the centre. Or well, several reasons. I've definitely come to love this girl.

ERINA IKUTA
Morning Musume 9th Generation
Age: 17


Who? The sugary-voice, television attention hog, resident weirdo Eripon, who just wants to be loved by all. Can be spotted somewhere near the edge and back of choreographies.

There appear to be bunch of videos on youtube revealing different sides of Eripon, but my Japanese skills aren't high enough to translate the main points lol


Eripon's solo lines :nervous


Show some love for the MM '14 member with most impressive arms!

My tribute of words to Eripon!

I can't say I like Eripon because X, Y, Z, because somehow I started liking her even before I knew her name in the 9th gen audition, and so I've liked her before I really had a reason to like her, if that makes sense.

But what a complex idol is Eripon.

In her appearance, she is slim and petite, but strong and muscular at the same time.
She can look like a cool guy, but is also very femininely pretty.
As a personality she is bold and shameless, but also sensitive. She'll cry quite easily and things that affect her appear to affect her greatly.
I never doubt her love for being an idol, but she can appear so spaced out at times that it seems like she's somewhere else. :lol:
She seems so awkward at times, but also rather easy to get along with.
Her voice is often super sugary, but can also be surprisingly strong, and seems to change from song to song.

When she laughs, it warms my heart :heart: May she always have things to smile about :heart:

Eripon is such a fascinating creature, a puzzle I can't solve. (LANGUAGE BARRIER HELPS) I didn't really choose to be her fan, it just happened, but overall I'm glad it happened, for she is a lovely young lady.

Ganbatte Ikuta!!!

RINA KATSUTA
S/mileage 2nd Generation
Age: 16


Who? A somewhat low-energy, but brightly smiling and caramel-singing Rinapuu has arguably been the S/mileage member with the least visibility - but S/mileage fans will recognize her uniqueness.

I shall link some solo performance videos since they show her charms the best, I reckon :3





Have you experienced the Rinapuu revelation yet?

Posting my personal Rinapuu commentary... She (and the rest of S/mileage 2nd gen) is largely the reason why I wanted to do GotW again. I don't really hear much about her, but I'd like to know everyone in H!P to some extent and this gives me the excuse to look them up on youtube. I think she has become maybe surprisingly lovely; at the time that she was chosen from Eggs to join S/mileage I wouldn't have chosen her as one of my favs, and I've come to see her value quite recently. As a character she is different from the others - not really loud and in your face, but still intriguing. Her movements on stage sometimes remind me of Mikitty in her lack of energy LOL but her smile makes up for it and her voice is cute. I'd love it if someone who has been paying more attention could offer some input because I'd really like to know everyone in S/mileage better.

I think this candid pic from a while back made me realize that she's turned out to be quite lovely.



she may be quiet, but don't mess w/ Rinapuu  :shocked
