Also, at the GoH reception, Jabronisaur asked Junjun and Linlin "will you be getting a photobook at any time?" and they nodded "look for it soon."
Jabba going straight to the point! PRIORITIES are in order! :thumbsup

Wow! My first time hearing about all the new groups! If that list holds up, it sounds pretty awesome to me. Tanpopo#, Aa, Minimoni, and even a new Biyuuden?? I like the girls composing pretty much every group too.

And I'm looking forward to those PBs! :yep: (especially LinLin's for some reason... perhaps partly because of how awesome she was at AX...)

Umeda Erika will be graduating from H!P this autumn. It was announced during today's Kakumei Gannen at Osaka. Apparently she's aiming for a modeling career of some sort.

It's pretty much settled, but I'll wait for an official announcement before a thread is made.

Wowowowowo

C-ute will be this chibidibidii unit

"It's so small"

But they don't need new members, Kanna and Umeda barely had lines in singles.. If they added new members it would just be "yay more backdancers"...

Sadly I doubt I will notice Umeda Erika missing except for the group size becoming much smaller in only one year D:

It seems that the new units (Pucchi, Tanpopo, Minimoni) never came to shine and release their own material. Ouch.  :doh:

Not that I had expectations about it happening, but since there was the rumor.. :tama-mad:

This just popped up on my tumblr dashboard:

こういうときこそアイドルの団体の壁を突き破って、AKB48一派×ハロプロで、日本アイドル版「WeAreTheWorld」を作って、売上を全額寄付しようよ。作詞秋元康作曲つんく♂で、どうよ? #AKB48 #SKE48 #morningmusume #berryz #c_ute
(From twitter but they did not say who made the tweet...)

AKB (and all the others groups) + H!P will make an Idol Japanese version of "We are the World" (so I guess it's for a single) because of this disaster. They are going to donate the total amount of sales. NO OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION.

This is most likely just a rumour- but it would be really amazing if they did! :D Or atleast some kind of song H!P Allstars only... Female Idol All Stars... :lol:

^^ Really? I thought it was an okay payment. Just the Takagaki team alone makes $450k-ish if we convert it by using today's exchange rates.

I remembered the part in the Kizuna Restaurant special where they showed how much the members earned circa 2002:

1. Abe - 2131/6432
2. Iida - 2084/6305
3. Kei - 1846/5662
4. Mari -1835/5632
5. Yuko -1645/5119
6. Tsuji -1442/4570
7. Rika - 1402/4462
8. Goto - 1260/4078
9. Kago - 1234/4008
10. Yossie   - 1166/3824

Usually with the similar charts I've seen for member earnings, they're educated guesses based on how much tax they paid.
That's probably why there's 2 columns there. First column is tax paid, second column is estimated gross earnings.

Also, they usually list figures in multiples of 10,000 yen, so Nacchi's 6,432 there is actually 64,320,000 yen.
Using a rough 2002 average figure of 125 yen to 1 USD conversion rate, that works out to $514,560
For comparison's sake, Yossy's 38,240,000 yen in 2002 is $305,920.

Just as an aside, I'm using USD and US salaries as points of comparison, because they're easier for me to think about.

The figure for current Morning Musume has Ai-chan and Gaki-san at the high end with 35,000,000 yen, and 8th gen at the bottom with their 18,000,000 yen.
In the last few years, the conversion rate has fluctuated around 83-90 yen per USD.
Using a rough value of 87 yen per USD, this works out to $206,896 on the low end up to $402,298.

While these numbers might seem a bit low in comparison to famous western music acts, you have to keep in mind that the Japanese music market doesn't have the same global reach.
Additionally, most of these girls are in groups so any profits that their act gets are split between them.
Hamasaki Ayumi, being a solo artist, obviously would get paid a bigger share of her profits.
Without comparing to western artists or top solo acts, I think $200k up to $400k a year is pretty damn good for girls in their teens and early 20s.

Sure the figures have dropped since the boom times of 2002, but that's to be expected, given the increased competition.
But I think it's good to keep it in perspective that these girls are getting paid what would be in the US, 6-figure salaries.
They work hard for the money, and I think it seems like a fair amount.
As long as they're still making good money, I don't see H!P dying out anytime soon.

Also, it is unknown how much of their salary comes in the form of company provided living accommodation. Living space in Tokyo, where most of the H!P members live, is rather expensive. Up-Front does own a considerable amount of real estate, financed with earnings from the Golden Era. Having a company provided apartment may be part of the incomes listed above.

Furthermore, it is believed H!P members receive a regular salary and some of them may have extra income from individual work such as photo books. This is different from western artists who usually get a (rather low) percentage of the proceeds of CD, ticket, etc sales and have no regular income.
