New H!P Kenshuusei Unit Announced

A new H!P Kenshuusei unit consisting of Miyamoto Karin, Kanazawa Tomoko, Uemura Akari, Otsuka Aina, Takagi Sayuki and Miyazaki Yuka, has been announced.

It had been speculated that the amount of exposure the Kenshuuseis have been getting lately would eventually lead to the formation of new units or groups that will allow Tsunku’s wish to come true and expand Hello! Project a little bit more, and it’s quite understandable since Morning Musume have already celebrated their 15th anniversary, the H!P Kids their 10th as well as Berryz, so some new fresh young units are a must.

http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11478354838.html (http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11478354838.html)


Takagi Sayuki
Her singing is rock-type and her dancing is powerful, you'll get the feeling that she's THE haropro kenshuusei from her high skill level

Miyamoto Karin
Up until now she has participated in a few unit in Hello Project as someone with a real talent. Her chara is also strong

Ootsuka Aina
An exceptional person left from the final round of 9th generation Morning Musume Audition
Her voice quality through the mike is something that draws you in

Uemura Akari

She made it until the 3rd round of Morning Musume's 9th gen audition. She's still a novice in dancing and singing but that part also makes me smile. I'm expecting great things from her personality

Kanezawa Tomoko
One of the member of a group that took part in Berryz工房×℃-ute(ベリキュー)「超HAPPY SONG(シングルver.)」 karaoke contest with DAM★
She stood out there with her smiles and singing and then she joined haropro kenshuusei. She has just joined so she's the designated star rookie(?)

Miyazaki Yuka
Although she's not part of the current kenshuusei roster, she was one of the finalist in the 10th generation Morning Musume audition and the S/mileage new members recruitment. She's currently a part of the Satoyama Movement unit GREEN FIELDS and after seeing her accomplishments there I decided to add her in this new group

cmiiw as always :)
He also said the swapping, removing and adding members for the final lineup is definitely a possibility depending on their growth during their indies activities/kenshuusei training

I'm glad he pointed out Sayuki's skills because I remember being impressed by her in the past, as well. It's awesome to see hard work be rewarded :)

I really wish them luck and for god's sake hope there won't be any swapping or removing of members because their little hearts would be broken :(

I wonder if I'm going to have a favourite member in this group... Something about Ootsuka Aina is endearing to me, but is that enough :lol:

If so I'd like to see them go head-to-head with LoVendoЯ for Japan Record Award's 2013 Best New Unit :twothumbs
Remember H!P has produced 3 Best New Units, Morning Musume, C-ute, & S/mileage ;)

No matter the name, it's great to see Karin finally get promoted and H!P expand their operations! I'm looking forward to what all these girls can bring to the table.

Their song sounds simply okay to me, but I do like the saxophone.

I think I'm going to like this new unit...  heh heh, despite the = in the name!  oaxiac, did you do the subs for that take-off from Downfall, or did you find it someplace?  It's brilliant, whatever...   I know that movie like my own brother, and that scene is amazing...  and to see it turned to that use of critiquing Tsunku and his naming practices is just fantastic!!  (And yeah, I've always been annoyed by the symbols in C-ute & S/mileage too, so I guess this will be no different.  I wonder if = can be put in filenames?   :smhid

Love the perf at H!P Station...  love those black & white themed outfits, with each one a defined separate style within the colour theme...  and the casual footwear kinda contrasts well with the more formal dresses and skirts.   :wub:

I will definitely be watching them!  Even though I don't have time to really follow the Kenshuusei (heck, not even sure if I spelled it right!) and barely know who Karin Miyamoto is apart from by name.  I know, I know, beat me to death now!!  But I think I will know her more in future.   :P

I guess Tomoko might end up being my fav after all 8) Why fight the cuteness

I kinda like the simplicity just because we can clearly see where their dancing is (better than I expected) and nice clean close-ups 8) For their next video I would expect more, though. Ama no Jaku video was significantly more polished, so I wonder if this group is even aiming to be as popular as S/mileage, or if it's some kinda unpopular step-sister group. o-o

Some negativity - I've sort of grown tired of how obviously posed some of the expressions are, also in Momusu MVs, it's like "here's my dramatic longing expression" etc. I realize they have to act for the MVs but I wish they were able to do it more naturally, haha. It's kind of the same feeling I get when I notice some rookie copying Reina's singing style and I just think NOOOO don't copy her, it's not you, it's not natural! I get the feeling that they're copying what they've seen others before them do, and it'll be good enough for sure, but... Yeah. It just feels so rehearsed to me >_>
Title: Re: The Juice=Juice Thread
Post by: Aioros on April 02, 2013, 06:54:04 AM
lol I think Tomoko is may favorite in this group too.  She's got spunk that the other girls don't have. When I look at her, she kinda resembles a younger Yuko and/or an evil twin of Yuuka. I also think she'll be perfect if they need a Japanese Hit-girl for Kick-ass :lol:

Post by: shirenuファクトリー on April 03, 2013, 10:00:17 AM
Yeah and at the moment they have so many girls with high squealy voices in H!P (see: S/mileage) that anyone with a bit lower voice is automatically a plus in my books :lol:

I can tell when Tomoko's side of the group is singing because it instantly sounds a bit lower, I like that... Aina's voice for instance is adorable, but it's exactly what I've grown tired of recently so it doesn't really impress me right now :lol: Same with Sayubee... I know Jpop idol groups will always have cutesy voices because it's kind of the point, but right now I'm ready to embrace the ones that stand out with a different type of voice >_<


Oh yeah and Karin has been pretty impressive before in lives and such, but this song doesn't really bring that out.

Tsunku's comments on the members.
*Thx to Lurkette at H!O

Takagi Sayuki: During her Egg days, her character and positioning were characterized by her coming and wandering about, but after a year, this "Never mind those little things and go!" sort of state seems to have unleashed her spirit and she's become very charming. Something about her is also comforting. She has strength, so look forward to seeing her from now on.

Miyamoto Karin: When she was small, she would get stuck in her moods when she was feeling down, and at the time Tsunku thought, "If she's this hardened up while she's small, it's going to be rough later," but over the past year, she's unbelievably cleared that bad habit, and she's become very feminine. Because of that, she'll become a very important accent within this group.

Otsuka Aina: Even though she's fair-skinned and has a pure Japanese style about her, she's actually very strong-willed and hates to lose, a very strong girl. She loves dancing and singing and gives a feeling like she's bound to advance from the start and she already has. But, she still has a lot of rough edges, like keeping the rhythm or keeping subtle facial expressions, but if she can do that, she can go to the top. Practicing the basics, you know.

Uemura Akari: This girl is, after all, the spirit of the group. Well, she did have a knee injury at a critical time and got the flu and missed performances, but she's an interesting 'bad student.' Her face is very showy, and you can't help but notice her. No matter what she does, she will be the last member to accomplish it, but that aspect makes her development stand out and more remarkable. Look forward to her.

Kanazawa Tomoko: She has an interesting voice. It's by no means a voice that goes well into the microphone, but it's noticeable. She also has a good vibrato. It really catches your ear. Everyone else thought so too, right? She has a round, friendly face. It's the sort of face that makes you think of sitting out on the porch in summer and eating cold noodles lol.

Miyazaki Yuka: She always looks troubled, but she's really not lol. Her singing and dancing still have ways to go, but she has a particular flavor about her. Also, she feigns innocence. In reality she's probably a really funny, popular girl at school, perhaps surprisingly so. It might be the big break for JJ when she stops faking her naivete. Look forward to her.


He recognizes that this is a fast start for them, but they had a good debut so he went ahead and decided on a May release date. Also, samidare is a June word, relatively speaking, but it's still May, so whatever. He feels that they have some sort of invisible power about them to have such a strong debut. A rock-like song with guitar and brass section that determine the speed and feeling of the song. The song is about a girl with a strong will, starting from a point where she notices other people's looks and starts to become worried about what others think of her because she hasn't finished growing. Like she wants to people to see her with her sensitivity. Because Juice=Juice is a group filled with determined members, the song is written with the wish that people will look out for them. The title is a play on words, and he hopes that we will support Juice=Juice in their determination and cuteness as they grow on their path to adulthood.

okay, here we go! as so often happens,
your start at Hello!Pro was when a small
egg was discovered near a wall calendar!!

(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip30754.jpg)

You were like a blank slate! No identity of your own, yet....
So naturally you had to look to your elders for advice
on such things as hairstyles!!


oh look, it's an egg!!
I need a mini-me!!

But of course, your senpai grew up (?!!!?),
and you were still under her influence....


That's right Sayuki, just a little more hairspray:
(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip30446.jpg)

Voila!
(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip30750.jpg)

How does it go again?
Yarushite Nyan!!
of for Pete's sake, this isn't
working!!!
Dear Charmy what should I do?

(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip30746.jpg)

Providentially, a new influence came into
your life:

sixteen your old with the natural hair:

I think I like "Samidare" a bit more than their first song, possibly because of a more appealing drum beat (even though the first song's saxophone was pretty cool). And even though I still don't have a favorite member yet, I'm kinda leaning towards Tomoko thanks to her singing voice and shirenu's fangirling. :lol:

Quote from: Amped/*Sohee from JPLOP
H!P Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice
Juice=Juice's 3rd indies single is also Kenshuusei's 2nd indies single, both singing their version of the same song "Ten made Nobore!"

Brass by Suzuki Shunsuke, arranged by Hirata Shoichiro

http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11533400895.html (http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11533400895.html)

*There will be a Juice=Juice version where there are solo lines etc. But the Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice version is all unison.

寺田ちゃん wrote:Juice=Juice's 3rd single is a warm medium song with a beautiful melody.

For their 1st and 2nd they had minor songs, made them able to start off with a cool image.
They have grown a bit lately and so let's take a deep breath.

I want you to feel that these girls can do a lot of different things and while in the previous MVs
they weren't allowed to smile pointlessly, for this one I want them to smile a lot.

Their image is completely different for this 3rd single, so I hope you look forward to it.

And this song, "Ten made nobore!" will also be Hello!Pro Kenshuusei's 2nd indies single.
We'll call it "Hello!Pro Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice.
Originally I wanted it to be the next theme song for the Kenshuusei. Some girls have been in for
several years aiming to debut. I made this song with these girls in mind, wanting them to aim
for the top and do their best!

If we're going to be picky, Juice=Juice's Miyazaki isn't a Kenshuusei, and I'm sure a lot of people
will point this out. But I've paid attention to her since the S/mileage audition so she's definitely
a big part of Hello! Project. Please let this be her chance to become a part of the group [T/N: H!P] too.

In the Juice=Juice version there will be solo parts and proper line distribution,
but for the Hello!Pro Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice version it's all unison.

Making it this way, makes one change the way we listen to the song.

The "Hello!Pro Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice" version is more liberal and energetic
but I'll have them sing it in a cool way.

They'll get new outfits too, showing their great growth, so please look forward to "Hello!Pro Kenshuusei feat. Juice=Juice"!

Holy crap. Otsuka Aina is withdrawing from J=J and Kenshuusei. TODAY. Apparently it was a family decision.

いつもJuice=Juiceを応援頂き、誠にありがとうございます。

大塚愛菜 本人並びにご家族と契約に関しての協議を重ねてまいりましたが、
残念ながら契約条件で合意に達するに至らず、ご家族からの契約辞退の申入れもあった為、
7月5日をもって大塚愛菜はJuice=Juice及び、ハロプロ研修生から脱退することとなりました。

今後Juice=Juiceは5名で活動していきます。
ファンの皆様には、何卒ご理解の上、引き続き応援の程宜しくお願い致します。


Translation:
We sincerely thank you for always supporting Juice=Juice.

In line with Otsuka Aina's own wishes, along with some overlap of contractual issues with her family, we were unfortunately unable to reach an agreement with the terms of the contract, and with respect to her family's non acceptance of the contract terms, from July 5th Otsuka Aina will no longer be part of Juice=Juice or the Hello!Pro Kenshuusei.

From now on Juice=Juice will continue on with only 5 members.
We beg the understanding of the fans on this matter, and hope that you will continue to support them.

Man, I wonder what these contractual issues were. Not enough money? Too much power for the agency? It's weird the family would let her get this far before blowing the whistle.

But this is sad and sudden. :(


I would have liked someone to take her place since the group is still so new and there are good trainees waiting for their moment in the spotlight, but from that announcement it looks like they've decided on continuing as five.

I was looking forward to seeing her succeed after getting a second chance in a new group, as well as seeing J=J progress as a six-member team. :( This is so sudden, too...they didn't just wait for certain promotions to finish and ease her out of the company, they simply ended it for her right away.

I do hope for the best for her and her family, as well as the remaining group members. Idol life is a tough business.

So that probably explains why she didn't perform during their "majors" announcement. Nobody even wanted to touch her when they were all crying and stuff... :(
I thought that maybe she just had the flu and nobody wanted to get infected. Damn..

I seem to remember hearing she was diagnosed with a muscle contusion in her hip, which prevented her from performing.

In hindsight, it all sounds kind of related, huh?
Title: Re: The Juice=Juice Thread
Post by: TommyVD on July 06, 2013, 09:03:11 AM
It's weird the family would let her get this far before blowing the whistle.
If it was truly the parents decision, then that is quite strange on their part. I'm assuming they would have known about contract terms way back when she auditioned for 9th gen and joined the Trainees. Guess we'll see if she pops up at another agency somewhere, though I doubt she'd be able to get a much better deal elsewhere.

From what we've seen UFP actually takes quite good care of their idols. They emphasize that their idols get an education. Yurina, Momoko, Kanon, Airi are all able to go to college while still remaining idols. They stuck by Aika for a long time while they could have let her go much earlier and are still giving her meaningful work,...

It's too bad really.
Title: Re: The Juice=Juice Thread
Post by: shirenuファクトリー on July 06, 2013, 09:44:39 AM
^ Yeah and since UF* has also started keeping ex-members that get married and give birth on their paylist, they truly seem quite loyal to their own.

It'll be extremely weird if Tsukapon appears at another agency because the only plausible explanation sounds like "realized that she does not really want to be an idol".

Juice=Juice Girls Chat Room Buccha ke (lit. bluntly talk) Girls Talk part 1

Chats #2 "Which member would be the most popular in girls school?"


    Takagi : Girls school, huh. I never go to one so I don't really know but I'll try imagine it!
    I think Tomo will be the most popular!

    Uemura : I think it's Kanatomo-chan too!

    Miyazaki : Actually it's same for me, too

    Miyamoto : For me, it's Yuka-chan. Girl that's good at sports is popular

    Kanazawa : If a boy with good reflexes is popular, I can understand.
    But it's the first time i heard if a girl that's good at sports is popular among girls, right?

    Miyamoto : Yes. Yuka-chan knows a lot of words, she's smart,
    She listens and empathize with my talks, somehow it make me feel "I like her ♡"
    If Yuka-chan and I attend the same girls school, I'll absolutely give her chocolate in Valentine days

    Miyazaki : Hearing that from Karin-chan makes me embarassed somehow, nfufu ♡

    Kanazawa : At first, I also think that it was Yuka-chan, a girly girl.
    But, doesn't cool girl more popular in girls school?
    Take a look at Takagi-san. Her singing, dancing and personality are cool and energetic
    It can pull people along, too. Despite that, sometimes she become lovely
    That gap is what make your chest tighten, that's how i imagine it

    Takagi : Talking about me, eh~ (embarassed) But still, it will be Tomo who is popular in girl's school
    After all, she is cute!

    Kanazawa : no no no no (embarassed) !

    Takagi : and yet, she's interesting, not acting cutesy, giving adult woman feeling
    That's why, everyone admire her, don't they?

    Takagi : What about Tomo-chan? Holding hands with A~ri~

    Kanazawa : I was nervous at first, but I get used to it recently,
    somehow it feels like 「a, o~」 when we hold hands (lol)

    Pajama, karikari ume (crunchy plum) and a letter

    Uemura : I also gave you a cup, right! Don't carelessly left it off!

    Miyazaki : A~ri~ just recently realized that it was not good if she received birthday present for her 12/30 birthday
    while not giving birthday present to anyone, right (lol)
    So today, she even gave me who born in April a present
    What a free girl...

    Kanazawa : Moreover, the letter is amazing! There were weird lines in the margins, I was like what is this?
    and then she said "Akari was making that frame with fingers" (lol)

    Takagi : What a free girl... (lol) By the way, I also born in April but I didn't get anything!

Juice=Juice sheds tears at major debut single release event
September 12, 2013 @ 12:16 am

On September 11th, Hello! Project's 5-member idol group Juice=Juice held a release event for their major debut single "Romance no Tochuu/Watashi ga Iu Mae ni Dakishimenakya Ne (MEMORIAL EDIT)/Samidare Bijo ga Samidareru (MEMORIAL EDIT)" at Ikebukuro Sunshine City.

Juice=Juice was formed back in February and is comprised of Hello! Pro Kenshuusei members; Miyazaki Yuka, Kanazawa Tomoko, Takagi Sayuki, Miyamoto Karin, and Uemura Akari.

The girls cheerfully performed four songs at the event, and there was even a surprise with leader Miyazaki reading a letter toward the other members. All the members shared their joy of the major debut on the stage, and also shed tears. Miyazaki stated, "I know we will be facing many things from now, but we will be fine if it' is the 5 of us. I would like to make many of our dreams come true."

Miyamoto who performed sitting due to an injury, made a comment while shedding tears of regret, "I really wanted to dance with everybody...but I will heal my leg completely, and work hard toward our bigger dream!" According to Miyamoto, the cast has already been removed, and she is hoping it will be healed by the end of September.

When asked about their future goal, Kanazawa said, "I would love to grab the Best New Artist Award of the Japan Record Awards", while Takagi said, "I want to be able to hold a world tour." Uemura also said, "I would like to improve our performance skills, and raise our level."

So couple things for those of you wanting to follow them, besides their blog (http://"http://ameblo.jp/juicejuice-official/"), they also have their official facebook (http://"https://www.facebook.com/JuiceJuice.Official"), youtube (http://"https://www.youtube.com/user/juicejuicechannel"),  and google+ (http://"https://plus.google.com/+juicejuice/posts").

So it appears as if they are in another marketing phase as they changed their clothing and they are doing a meet and handshake event for their second, as of now, un named single. Its a more mature look.
Edit: According to [ur="http://hellopronews.tumblr.com/post/63938645872/juice-juices-2nd-single-renamed"l]this[/url] random tumblr post the song seems to be named Ijiwaru Shinai de Dakishimete yo and will be released on Nov. 27th.

How Tsunku♂ Sees Current Members of Juice=Juice


As some of you may know, the Hello! Project producer Tsunku♂ often shows a deep love for the H!P members through his blog, when a single or an album is released.

Because the article about the members of MM.’14 got good response, please let us try to have J=J version! (Check the MM’14 version here! )
The original has been posted on March 21, right after their 3rd single was released.
http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11801142248.html (http://ameblo.jp/tsunku-blog/entry-11801142248.html)

The oldest member in the group, Yuka Miyazaki:

She is a bit airhead for her age but, became the leader simply because she’s the oldest.
However, she is a different type of innate goofy from other ditzy members in Hello! Project.
It might be because she is the first member in H!P history who is from Ishikawa Prefecture.
I hope she will be a nice lady as representatives of girls from the region.
That doesn’t mean I want her to get sophisticated at all though.

I hope she will be a unique person, valuing her indescribable “take-it-easy-aura” and “hesitating-look!”

Tomoko Kanazawa:
Roughly since her debut as J=J was decided, she lost weight well over 5kg whether conscious or unconscious.

I never asked her so it’s just my guess though.

Her white skin, thick eyebrows, and chiseled eyes for Japanese, those give us the impression that she has strong feature. At the same time, she has very soft voice, and that is becoming quite attractive and distinctive.

She is too good to lose some more weight.

Sayuki Takagi:
A girl of fighting instinct. I have had the impression that she changed her hair style, and character several years ago. Then there was a period when she tried to hide her face line with her hair.
While I was thinking what happened to her, she turned very attractive and as free as a bird by the time Juice=Juice was formed.

If her effort overlapped considerably with her fighting spirit, I believe a significant growth will be given.

Karin Miyamoto:
I had an image of her as “the self-assertive” but, now she has grown up, can look around her, and became a capable member.
She looks she has come to understand what teachers and staff feel, and want to say.
Song and dance became reliable too.

However, I encourage her further effort to gain patterns of expressions on stage! On recording!

Akari Uemura:

Before she made her debut, I was like, “Eh…she may be not interested in singing or Hello! Project but aggressive mother would keep nagging her…forcing her to do it! do it!”
I was wrong, she was really into it too.
She was a type of being misunderstood by looks.
She’s been clearly emerging as an idol these days.

Her dance and singing are far from a goal.
She hasn’t seen anything yet, the real part has only just begun.

The words of the gifted producer/musician are quite tough to translate, but thank you for reading!

Quote from: Roxas III from H!O
Tried translating Tsunku comment about Juice member for this single
 
    Miyazaki
    Dignity comes out from her troubled face, and she learns to be calmer recently
    She struggles desperately with singing and dancing, and that is really sweet
    She has soothing character in Juice=Juice, hasn't she. Nice balance. Her voice is lovely too

    Kanazawa
    I already said this many times. Her voice is indeed interesting
    Eventhough originally her voice in recording was bad,
    but this time, she has come at the point where she is able to handle it amazingly, it is pleasant to hear
    Amazing!

    Takagi
    She has become skilled in singing. Her voice quality has matured too
    I thought it will take more time for her to come to this point so it made me surprised !
    Next is expression, comprehension ability! so, how will those become?

    Miyamoto
    She becomes more reliable
    And yet, she hungry for challenges and always have "I want challenge more and more~ !" looks in her eyes
    As long as she has that kind of feeling, she isn't going to lose

    Uemura
    An adult-like middle schooler,
    I wonder if her age finally has caught up with her atmosphere ?
    No, I think it hasn't caught up yet
    Along with her limb's length, her adult-like looks is no 1 in Hello!Project !

JFC san, great post- Arigatou!

An Excerpt-

Karin Miyamoto: On July 1st, we did a live concert at Tomoko Kanazawa's hometown Saitama. Her birthday is on the 2nd, so we prepared a cake for her and she was so touched that she started crying. Everyone was really happy and that was something really memorable for all of us.

Tomoko Kanazawa: I was really happy. It'll be a moment that stays with me forever.
Sayuki Takagi: It was a really big cake but she didn't share it with anyone and just took it home.

Everyone: (Laughter)
(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip34272.jpg)

Tomoko Kanazawa: I kept it all to myself. (lol) It was really good!

Karin Miyamoto: On top of the cake was a cookie with Tomo's picture on it. On our blog you can see a picture of her taking a big bite out of it (lol).


......and so the legend grows....

^ that sequence of the singing coach breaking down Tomoko was
heartbreaking.....she's nineteen, which I suppose means she should be able to
take a hard push, but that shizzle was a little too fer rizzle to be filmed...

Always joking around about her Hades powers,
but in that segment I saw a girl who hasn't been an idol since
she was 10 years old like most of the H!P members, and all of her
doubts about herself were being heavily tested....

Good luck to Tomoko san and all the girls
in their performances!

Post by: muppet on February 15, 2015, 04:30:35 AM
^ yeah I was waiting for more results to be shown, after the
initial training sessions....

There was a documentary made in the 70's
called 'Scared Straight' about a program that brought
juvenile offenders to prisons, so that the young people
could hear from the adult felons how life as a
criminal had no upside....

Somehow every time I see vocal Sensei training
the girls, it reminds me of Scared Straight ...

Here that can do better than that!! Quit your crying!

Within Hello Project itself, in such a short space of time, they already dubbed HP secret weapon. If H!P is one big army of idols, I bet Juice=Juice will be the elite special forces unit, with a calm collected leader/commander (Yuka), a tyrant for a subleader and three versatile enlisted members. With just 5 members, they can do a lot of damage.

Juice=Juice will be starring in a 2016 Fuji TV drama!

Quote

The drama is titled Budokan, and is based on the novel of the same name by Asai Ryo (朝井リョウ). Asai is known for his best-selling 2010 novel Kirishima, Bukatsu Yamerutteyo (桐島、部活やめるってよ; The Kirishima Thing), which was adapted into an award-winning film in 2012.

Budokan is about a fictional five-member idol group called NEXT YOU, who—while dealing with conflict, such as differences within the group, love problems, wavering life choices—dream of performing at Nippon Budokan. Tsunku will also be involved in writing the songs, creating the concept of the group and the costumes, almost everything up to the choreography, as well as appearing on screen as their producer!

The five main characters and members of NEXT YOU are:

    Hidaka Aiko (日高愛子), the amateur
    Dogakinai Aoi (堂垣内碧), the immovable center
    Adachi Mayu (安達真由), the pocchari but cheerful one
    Sakamoto Hana (坂本波奈), the leader
    Tsurui Rurika (鶴井るりか), the one who proudly gives amazing handshakes

Juice=Juice’s character roles will be announced at a later date.

Recording will start next month, which all Juice=Juice events, live performances and handshake events, and even TV appearances during that time will be as NEXT YOU.

Also, some interesting information I’ve found myself: Asai Ryo is a fan of Hello! Project and Tsunku’s music, and has said (http://www.sankei.com/life/news/150520/lif1505200006-n1.html) In a Da Vinci magazine interview he also said the character Adachi Mayu was created and inspired by Suzuki Kanon.  (http://helloprot.blog.jp/archives/29721485.html)

Funnily enough, Juice=Juice is already in the story… as a fictional group called fruits=fruits (https://twitter.com/kgkgMk1/status/596298067722121217). However, like NEXT YOU, Juice=Juice is currently aiming to perform at Budokan at the end of their long 220 show live tour.

Having watched the entire concert video, I can only imagine what it must be like to BE there at their Budokan performance. I got really emotional when they showed that 1st VTR on their hard, long journey of 225 missions before arriving at the very steps leading to the entrance of Budokan..together, all FIVE of them. And when it all comes to an end, I shed tears as I see tears welling up in Tomo's eyes and even Karin's voice was breaking during Tsuzuiteku Story it broke my heart.

But it was only after the concert was over that I finally realised how much our Juice=Juice girls have grown, and I can honestly say not a lot of groups could've achieved so much growth and mature so much after just 3 years in the business....considering this...225 PERFORMANCES! Being there as a reward for surviving such gruelling tour schedule, they still have not disappointed me one bit...even in this last Code performance, they continued to shine brightly. It could only get better for them...it's only the beginning...this is my hope for Juice=Juice.

My congratulations again, belated, to HELLO PROJECT's SPECIAL FORCES, Juice=Juice!

Continuing on from Part 3....

Meanwhile, while the CO lectures her two senior officers and debating on the morality of Tomoko's torture training, Corporal Yanagawa seems to be having the time of her life being trained by the unit's resident Judo expert on various emergency rescue techniques.

Shortly after the fun ride training, Yanagawa proceeds back to the Special Forces HQ and checks in with her XO/subleader:

Cpl Yanagawa: You didn't tell the skipper anything...riiiiggghht, Commander?!
Tomoko: Of course not..what do you take me for...a fool? (sly grins).  Now get behind me for a quick 2-shot

It is obvious how devious the young corporal is...she's even starting to manipulate win over the elite unit's Ace operator.

Realizing the newbies could use some R&R time after a guelling Hell Week, Captain Miyazaki managed to squeeze some shore leave time for team-bonding..her treat, of course. The choice of destination: Universal Studios Japan

During the R&R at USJ, these 2 are spotted together walking side by side:

Akari: So, you'll do anything for me, right, Ru-chan?
Corporal Danbara: Absolutely, Ma'am.

Just another normal day of bullying and torture at Juice=Juice, only this time, the Juice=Juice captain is in the thick of the action:

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFTqY2nVYAAnNRE.jpg)


The members just love bugging their commanding officer:

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFZljCaWsAA4n-4.jpg)


And finally, Lieutenant Akari Uemura is delighted that she finally made Ruru Danbara her henchman.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFbBguzXkAE7HAo.jpg)


You can tell that aside from Akari, you can really felt the love of the seniors for the 2-ki (I still can't believe I am saying 2-ki now) members. Particularly you can really see how the five seniors dote on Ruru. Its like they finally found new siblings in Ruru and Nanami. I honestly wasn't expecting such a warm welcoming treatment for the 2 newbies from the original members, but I'm happy they are getting along. I guess from day one (the announcement of the 2-ki), Yuka as the leader set a warm tone by being so welcoming and the others respond in kind towards the new members. She truly sets a good example as a leader when you compared how MM17 was introduced to Chisaki. Yuka may not be as gifted vocally, but she made up for it by improving by leaps and bounds and by having the Azakawa personality but at the same time being a leader who cares genuinely for her members and empathizing with their emotions. My fears that they group dynamics will be ruined with the addition of the 2 members was somewhat allayed when I see them getting along very well as the days go by. Yuka wanted Nanami and Ruru to WANT to belong to Juice=Juice, and the members felt it too. Much as I am still getting used to a 7-nin J=J, I still am going to miss the 5-nin J=J I've came to know and love since many years ago.

as much as i oppose anyone else joining the original 5, I have to tip my hat to danbara - she is worthy of standing with the others. I guess i just really don't like Yanagawa (sorry to her fans) - especially since I can't specify why...if it were up to me, j=j would be 5 members for their entire tenure, and i'll argue that till the end, but I'll give ruru my blessing (if that means anything lol). oh, i guess i should say this is pretty much based off that youtube video of Fiesta!

Leader Miyazaki Yuka told the press in an interview on June 9, "When C-ute performed live in Mexico, they told the local fans to please see their kouhai group when J=J comes".

Yuka went on to say this: "This world tour is part of the Haro Pro world strategy (or world domination?! as Ayacho said). As a top batter, Juice = Juice accepted the challenge performing in seven countries world tour and made it successful.

From now on, this road that Juice = Juice has opened up will be for Morning Musume the flagship group and Anjulm will be marching on.

So it's true what I have said, Hello Project is adopting modern military tactics to break into a new frontier (going global) and it is using it's "Special Forces", the vocal powerhouse group it has under its disposal, to break that resistance and carve that road for the other Hello Project groups to walk on.

Despite what I have said before, I cannot turn my back on these girls. While I have been a fan of H!P for quite some time, J=J is the first group that I can say I was a 'Day One' fan of - whilst I was around when S/mileage formed, I wasn't into them at the time, but I was front & center for J=J's debut and all that, and that's why I can get too emotional when it comes to them, and I apologize for any negative things I have said against them. I remember when the youtube videos came out of their first performance, and the wota's were chanting for them just as excitedly as they would for C-ute or Momusu, and having tears of joy in my eyes (just as i do know to be honest), and thinking that yeah, these girls are going to be awesome, and sure enough...they've easily exceeded my expectations, and dare i say that they are essentially C-ute 2.0 - they've got the skill level, which will only increase as time goes on. I honestly believe that greatness breeds greatness - that's why H!P has always been so awesome - from the beginning there's always been great talent, and that's trickled down for the last 20 years - and will continue to do so. Declaring J=J as the 'special forces' of H!P is pretty accurate - 'the best of the best'...  :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

I agree with Jon hung. I found myself in tears seeing the 5nin J=J cried after it was announced their single came in 2nd at the oricon chart..the first breakthrough for them. I cried again when they sung Mirai E at the Budokan last year and at the end tsuzuiteku story. And this year they really cemented my love when I saw them in the flesh in Malaysia. I heard their stories of adversity particularly Tomoko and Karin"s issues and how they always managed to pull through thosw tough times shows they are idols with a real hard work ethics and resilience and character. Thus they have done nothing but impress me..cos I'm pretty sure no other idol group have been tested as much as they are with that they have to go through.

And you know What? Call me biased but have you seen and heard Juice=Juice performing cover songs of other artistes? Whenever that happens, they always seem to make that song THEIR OWN...case in point Magic of Love..it seems every cover song sung is injected with a distinctive Juice flavour that makes it sound so much better than the original...no disrespect to the original artiste!.

And to think despite being that good already....all the members are still striving to be even better...just read their blogs...Karin and Sayuki HATED their own performance when they watched it after concert and always express desire to do better next time. Is that crazy?! Such perfectionism puts a lot of pressure on Nanami especially but it's become a trademark oh Hello Project's Elite!

So there we have it..Resilience..talent..desire to keep improving and pushing themselves harder each time and a close sense of team camaraderie...they embody the hallmarks of a true Special Forces unit if they were in the military. In hello project i have no doubts in my mind that J=J Is the elite unit

What?! They are STILL going on a Solo Autumn Tour till mid-November, despite preparing for 2nd Budokan in November AND South America in December.  :shocked And Don't forget Joint Missions with their parent Hello Pro Fleet ie HAROCON.  :O

I am worried for their well-being.  :panic: The girls have not been given much rest lately jet-setting around this World Tour and I'm genuinely concerned they might suffer fatigue. Ruru may be able to keep pace with her senior officers WITH SOME EFFORT but Nanami looked like she's struggling stamina-wise. The original 5nin has had the benefit of physically conditioning themselves last year with the 225 Live Missions (so stamina-wise they are better than the rest of H!P) before the big one (1st Budokan). I want them to be at their best for their 2nd! Harocon is not that intense because the girls have plenty of time to rest in between and ease off pressure since they are not the only performer. (though I doubt UFA would want to leave out their Special Forces in this year's end Harocon, no matter how overworked they are)  :smhid

I remembered Yuka's message at the ending part of Budokan 2016 when she expressed herself being touched by fan's concerns that they worried about the members having to perform 220 lives before Budokan...the fact that she was tearing up when expressing that feeling  :cry:.. and if you rewatch the concert, the rest of the members were tearing up too! It may be they are genuinely weary but at least then they still had a week or so to rest before the 1st big concert.. this year, their schedules are much more hectic and involved lots of travelling.

Rants, aside, it seems this Autumn Tour will have 4 performances in Leader's home prefecture (Kanazawa, Ishikawa-ken). Yuka must be delighted to know she will be facing Yuka-call pretty soon at home.

Please Up-Front, take care of your talent's well-being...these girls are so very precious to us. They may be H!P's Special Forces but they are also human beings.

Dunno if its all on UF management; maybe they were also driven by their own willpower, or even the ambition of one day replacing MMusume's monopoly of H!P's flagship status?

Maybe if given 2 more years, J=J might be good enough to break away from Hello Project rather than fight for flagship status. Who knows right? I view the addition of Danbara to be the cementing of J=J's legacy as a true vocal & performing powerhouse group of Hello Project. The addition of the 2nd gen means H!P intended to immortalize Juice=Juice with a niche position where only the elite with certain specific qualities can qualify as members. I'm not looking down on Yanamin, of course...she has her strength which can add to bringing more popularity during MCs or adding "personality" to an already close-knit unit. And she has potential to improve the way her leader has been doing. What I'm trying to say is if this is UF's way of thinking (similar as my view), Juice=Juice does not even NEED to fight for the flagship unit status. Because, with this precedent of adding a potential legend in Danbara, one can envisage that in the near future, we will have ONLY the cream of the crop of exceptional kenshuseis qualifying as new members.

Juice=Juice Q&A


Q: Who's a member who makes you feel relaxed when you room together at a hotel?

(https://i.imgur.com/FAfsATz.png)
Miyamoto Karin-chan and Danbara Ruru-chan.
Though I haven't roomed with Ruru-chan, I'd relax since the two of them never oversleep (lol)

(https://i.imgur.com/MyPV7V2.png)
Takagi Sayuki
We've actually roomed together an awful lot, so one way or another it's the most relaxing.


(https://i.imgur.com/FJbCjJo.png)
Probably Kanazawa-san~...
Though having a room to myself is the most relaxing ♪ (lol)


(https://i.imgur.com/M1ABRPB.png)
Everyone is relaxing.


(https://i.imgur.com/EvzKpuO.png)
Though I don't really know since after we went to the 7 of us I haven't been with the new members, it's easy getting along with everyone.


(https://i.imgur.com/RnyhlkB.png)
Funaki Musubu-chan. Since we're both so free, there's almost nothing to worry about!
The only scary thing is making sure not to oversleep...! lol


(https://i.imgur.com/l8BPqNM.png)
Probably my generation-mate Yanagawa Nanami-chan, as you'd expect.

The two started out unusually happy behind bars:  :lol:

After SERE, they started shooting the MV for Naite Ii Yo. Partway through the shoot, Karin showed how unimpressed she was when Lieutenant Uemura was THIS close to her beloved Executive Officer/subleader:

Yuka: My daughter, Yanamin, is really, really smart and quick-witted too..and she's so cute and adorable it hurts.

Sayuki: Really? That's good to know, Yuka-san. My daughter, Ruru, though...all she ever thinks about is singing. With that voice of hers, I guess it will only be a matter of time before she surpasses me in the vocals department.

Personality, Visual (Beauty), Vocal (Singing) and Idol Traits (all rounded performers in Tomoko and Karin). Did you realize now that J=J has never been this BALANCED before!!:

you can tell from LT Miyamoto and SGT Dambara's facial expression that as Special forces, they are often restless when they have no missions assigned after the conclusion of their stage play performance and the Esperanza campaigns...guess they are all forever adrenaline junkies who never gets tired of being on the performing stage:

Looking at the preview (2:50~), looks like medium/shoulder-length hair, so there's plenty of options, also, haircut is possible etc etc.

I think it's quite possible (maybe even likely) that this girl is Riai (KSS best performance winner), but of course it's impossible to tell. That would probably mean they found some talented girls in the Morning Musume auditions.

A lot of options, we'll find out soon!

The new Juice=Juice members are Yume Kudo (KSS Hokkaido) and Riai Matsunaga (KSS).... congrats!

This is a really strong pair, Riai is the KSS best performance winner from this year while Yume placed second and also took an award for best dance.

Makes me wonder who they're going to add to MM, if any KSS at all. We'll find that out in a week.

Juice=Juice bade farewell to their first Commanding Officer yesterday in an emotional and tearful, but hopeful ceremony.


Captain Kanazawa, the new CO of the Special Forces unit, managed to retain her composure in her farewell message to Commodore Miyazaki

(https://i.imgur.com/uOgaw50.jpg)

The same could not be said about the Team's new Executive Officer, Commander Takagi, who broke down when she was delivering her heartfelt message

(https://i.imgur.com/9PvC89X.jpg)

Third in command, Lieutenant-Commander Miyamoto, in true idol cyborg tradition, didnt shed a tear throughout the whole performance, even the message. Though her warmth was still felt by her outgoing CO.

It was nice to actually see Yume and Riai getting into the car on the way as they are reporting for duty at Naval Special Warfare Yokosuka, the home base of Juice=Juice. It must be nerve-wrecking to meet a tyrant for a Commanding Officer on their first day at work.  :lol:

Both of them have this humble demeanour and personality despite how clearly-talented of performers they are and I couldnt help but like these 2 recruits already! They have made the cut to be in Hello Project's Special Forces unit. I have no doubt they will carry on the name of J=J as a unit which excels in live performances.
Title: Re: The Juice=Juice Thread

COMMODORE Miyazaki will be well-remembered as the first and legendary CO of Juice=Juice. Her kind, easy-going but azakawaii nature pulls the group closer together especially in times of crisis, or when members of the group suffers from an injury, such as then-Lieutenant Karin Miyamoto protracted absence due to medical condition. Leads by being a leader with a motherly aura and approachable to all J=J Team members.


(https://i.imgur.com/tEbGm5P.jpg)
CAPTAIN Kanazawa during her early years as a Special Warfare Officer had a reputation of being an intimidating bully/tyrant. However, she had mellowed down somewhat over the years after getting a promotion to Commander. I can't tell if she's relishing her prospect of actually being the next CO of Juice=Juice, but all we know is that she certainly Commands the stage everytime with her voice and performance


(https://i.imgur.com/izTC92l.jpg)
COMMANDER Takagi is without equal, Juice=Juice "EXPLOSIVE ORDNANCE SPECIALIST". Her vocal prowess alone could lift the performance level of the whole team even when half of J=J were down with injury. Has a great sense of humour, except monkey jokes. She hated monkey jokes.


(https://i.imgur.com/xXO4vdN.jpg)
LIEUTENANT-COMMANDER Miyamoto epitomized the ideals and work ethics of a special warfare officer, so much so that many are expecting her to ascend to the level of Admiral someday and head the entire Special Forces division. Her leadership abilities remains to be seen but her abilities as a Special Forces officer is never in doubt.


(https://i.imgur.com/fdmhQEz.jpg)
FIRST LIEUTENANT Uemura is the Team's judo/unarmed combat trainer. Her almost super-strength abilities to carry anyone in the Fleet makes her the ideal candidate to be the group's Lead Physical Trainer. However, she is known to dote on the newcomers such as MIDS Dambara.


(https://i.imgur.com/cib2ni2.jpg)
LIEUTENANT Inaba transferred from the Surface Warfare community after a brief hiatus from departing the missile cruiser The COUNTRY GIRLS. She is known to be an expert dancer and all-round softie. Gets along especiall well with LCDR Miyamoto.


(https://i.imgur.com/NzraQN8.jpg)
MIDSHIPMAN Dambara is currently on the fast-track to earning her officer's commission after being instrumental in the WORLD TOUR campaign, an instant favourite among all fans and members within the Hello Fleet. One of the future torch-bearers of Juice=Juice, Dambara is an all-rounded and extremely proficient operator that can wow anybody who hears her voice.


(https://i.imgur.com/aYZbKBZ.jpg)
LANCE-CORPORALS Kudo and Matsunaga are the recent additions to the Team. Little is known of their combat profiles except that they both have passed the Hell Week Trials with flying colours.

A good try at Tokyo Glider by CG and Beyooonds but IMO performance of this cover is inferior compared to its original singers. It seems when u see other grps try covering JJ songs you start to appreciate how truly talented JJ is as a Special Forces unit vocally to pull off singing such difficult songs. They make it look so easy that anyone else trying to perform their songs fails at nailing it. it seems JJ songs are only tailored to be sung by JJ. Normal units should stay off trying to pull off Special Warfare missions.

After grading their performance, 2nd Sergeant Yume Kudo and 3rd Sergeant Riai Matsunaga may be just the newcomers to the Special Warfare community, but the way they danced, they looked like veterans who have been operating with the high performance unit for 2 or 3 years. Their raw talent, plus what I called the "J=J Effect", where any new decent singers with examples like Nanami Yanagawa, have the tendency to improve by leaps and bounds so as not to be left behind their senior officers and let down J=J's legacy for excellence in vocal and live performance. As Hello Fleet's elite unit, I don't expect anything but the best for this elite unit, and for any newcomers who is selected to join it. Under Captain Kanazawa's command, they have transitioned truly in the peak of the Golden Era ushered in by the previous CO, Miyazaki Yuka. I have no doubt Juice=Juice will continue to make Hello Project proud and fly it's flag the world over!

While on a mission with First LT Uemura,  Ruru dropped by to visit her older sister, Major Dambara Riri who is currently serving as a dance instructor:

From her reaction, Uemuu seems strangely familiar with the elder Dambara she probably has spent more than a few occassions visiting Ruru's family home in Hiroshima:

After the mission, the Captain of Juice=Juice indulges in her favourite Maid Cafe, dragging Corporals Satoyoshi and Nishida along and later forcing the 2 junior Marines to impersonate as a maid themselves..a clear abuse of power by a Senior Special Forces officer:

Tomoko is proving herself to be a capable Commanding Officer. She certainly continued the legacy of a warm and caring leadership from her predecessor. But then again, it is to be expected that Yume and Riai fit in nicely with the Team since they are among the 2 top Trainees in Kenshusei Academy.

It's really nice that the Team is getting the international recognition they deserved. Even fans from abroad (outside Japan) recognize they have the "Avenger status" within Hello Project. ie. "the best of the best". J=J has become truly the Special Forces of Hello Project.  8)

Latest: Hello Project High Command will be dispatching its fleet naval aviation carrier Morning Musume and Special Forces group Juice=juice in a coordinated invasion of Russian hearts and minds.

Special Warfare elite unit Juice=juice is expected (as always) to be the first on the frontline to infiltrate Russian soil at naval base Vladivistok and soften the strategic defences of the hardened Russian fans as early as June. This will be followed by air strikes from the jets taking off the deck of Morning Musume within 2 weeks of the ships arrival in Russian waters.

The Fleet members voted for the best among them vocally and dance wise.

Unsurprisingly Juice's executive officer Commander Takagi was voted the best vocally in the whole fleet with an 11 vote lead over the runner up Lieutenant Oda, a Musume aviator

Lieutenant Inaba scored another for Juice by being voted the best dancer in the whole Fleet by her peers. Both top slots are won by the Special Warfare operators

You can almost see here that even for fun games, Ruru always does her best to WIN.

Rei trains with her Executive Officer and utilizes her unique Voice Percussion combat skills in this rendition of Choice and Chance:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k0va5iLhAI

Its obvious now that Special Warfare Command has deliberately planned this Training Series for Rei to seamlessly integrate into the high-tempo and high-performance operation environment that Juice=Juice typically operates in.

In #1, she sang to Taisei's slow rthymn of Hitori De, operating in a slow ballad combat zone,
In #2, we see her dancing skill in Watashi Lu, a high tempo dance number to prove her worth as a dancer
In #3, she was tested vocally again in the lovely ballad Potsurito alongside her Commanding Officer Captain Kanazawa, who approved of her performance,
In #4, she was tested by another senior officer LCDR Uemura in the Jazz/Bossanova-inspired version of Sunao ni Amaete
And now, Rei has shown what more she has to offer to Juice's combat capability by adding Voice Percussion into their repertoire, impressing even Commander Takagi,

At this point, I cannot even imagine how things will go in her next Evolution Trials with Commander Miyamoto, the officer she will be replacing in J=J  :drool:

Juice=Juice was having their post-mission meal on the mess deck of the carrier when their CO, Tomoko suddenly announced that they've been activated for a rescue mission.

Tomoko: Alright girls, we're gonna be extracting a Musume pilot who's been shot down behind enemy lines. Sayuki will brief you on the plane.
<Sounds of groaning were heard as Tomoko's elite team grabbed their combat gear and headed out of the Mess. Manaka was about to be the last to exit the room when Tomoko stopped her>

Tomoko: You're sitting this one out, Manaka.
Manaka: But why, Captain?!

Tomoko: That's an order, Lieutenant. That's all you need to know.

Manaka sensed something was off. She knew she would not be able to get a straight answer out of her Executive officer/subleader Takagi Sayuki as well. So she decided to press the CAG of Momusu, Commander Ishida, who after being pressed by the Special Warfare officer, finally relented and revealed that Lieutenant Morito was the aviator who was shot down during her recon mission.

As tears started welling in Manaka's eyes, she recalled the last outing she went on that eventful date with Chisaki on their shore leave:

No matter how much Karin have wanted her graduation not to be a sad one, some members were still caught weeping openly when the camera focus was not on them. During her farewell speech to Karin on behalf of her Team, Captain Kanazawa struggled so hard to fight back her tears.

Apart from the initial costume colour designations by rank, we can really tell apart the senior Original Members from the newer members from the sheer level of their performance.

Senior Officers (Lieutenant-Commander to Captain): Green
Junior Officers (2nd Lieutenant to 1st Lieutenant): Light and Dark Blue
Specialists aka YumeRiai (Staff Sergeants): Orange

Tomoko entered the interrogation room of the missile cruiser Tsubaki Factory, where a man sat with his hands and legs tied to the armrest and chair legs respectively.

"Has he said anything yet?" Tomoko asked as she folded her arms.

"Rather than wasting our time here, I say we waste this degenerate scum, Captain". Staff Sergeant Matsunaga glared at the hapless male wota who was expecting some serious backbreaking being inflicted on him by Juice=Juice's resident yankii. The look on Riai's eyes was enough to break his spirit.

There has been rumours circulating around that Flight Sergeant Hashisako Rin of Angerme's carrier wing and Staff Sergeant Matsunaga Riai of Special Forces, have not been on speaking terms with each other for months right now. This cold war feud seemed to be the result of an earlier altercation where Rin left Riai in a lurch during one of their get together.

However, wotas discovered some more evidence that prior to their assignments to their units, Riai and Rin has been doing some "bullying" on Shion Tamenaga when she was still a KSS cadet trainee. Both Riai and Rin told Shion to stand at attention while they took some unflattering photos of the hapless Tamenaga.

http://colorhello.blog.jp/archives/1078280768.html

When contacted by Haro fleet inspectorate officials, both specialists were quick to deny these allegations of misconduct, and further added that they have not spoken to each other due to Matsunaga's frequent covert operations with her unit and Hashisako's deployment out at sea

The aircraft carrier ANGERME hosted "Juice=Juice" onboard their ship while half of the special forces team was doing their Solo event.

In commemoration of this occasion, they took a joint photo with the ANGERME members posing with "J=J signs" while Juice=Juice reciprocates while doing the "A" (for Angerme) signs. Except for one sulking Juice member who refused to comply.

(https://livedoor.blogimg.jp/cutesokuhou/imgs/4/f/4ff54a4b.jpg)

Needless to say, Takagi Sayuki, the Executive Officer, pulled Riai to one side and asked her point-blank: "Riai-chan, why are you behaving this way? You're perfectly happy while being stationed onboard Momusu and even Beyoooonds. Just what is your problem? Why do you hate ANGERME so much?"

Riai couldn't look at her XO in the eye. She simply muttered: "I never hated Angerme as a whole, Commander. I just hate Hashisako Rin"

At this point, Sayuki realized she could'nt let this cold war feud between the 2 specialists go out of hand, especially when she knows that Flight Sergeant Hashisako is the one who will be packing all of Juice=Juice's combat parachutes when they get activated for a mission requiring them to jump out of a C2 Greyhound aircraft soon enough.

Staff Sergeant Matsunaga opens up about her pet collection at home, her relationship with Hashisako Rin and her rivals:


Quote
I quarrel a lot with Rin-chan. Even though we quarrel, it’s always over silly little things. Like I got sulky with Rin-chan because she went home before me. Also, the both of us like pulling pranks, although that’s also been a source of trouble. Like there have been times when I tell her that I have something serious to talk about with a sombre tone. Then after I tell her that I’m just kidding, she’ll cut me off with a serious face, telling me not to make her suffer through these sorts of pranks. It’s like how close siblings will fight one another.

Once, there was a Marine Raider who was stranded in the middle of a dense thick forest. Out in the distance, she could make out a team walking towards her direction. When they got closer, the 2nd Lieutenant snapped to attention and saluted the Team's leader when she noticed the 4 bars of a Navy Captain on her shoulders. The senior officer, one named Tomoko Kanazawa, returned her salute and asked her:

"What happened to your team, Marine?"

"They were KIA, Ma'am..all 4 of them". The raider named Inoue fought hard to keep her tears at bay as Tomoko glanced over to her XO, Takagi Sayuki, who smiled and nodded.

"Well, you can ride with us if you want. what's your role in your team?"

"I'm an advance scout. At least...I used to be" Inoue replied.

Tomoko and her team members had a sympathetic look on their faces.

"Lieutenant-Commander Miyamoto here is going to be leaving us soon...so we could really use a new advance scout...so...what do you say, Lieutenant?"

A smile carved out of Inoue Rei's lips. For the next few months, she had to prove her mettle to her new teammates that she is worthy of wearing the Special Warfare badge, even going one on one with all the senior team members on various challenge tests. It still was a struggle for her to keep up, but it wasn't too much for her since she had the experience and skill while being part of the Marine special forces team, Kobushi

A few missions later, Rei found herself settling in the cozy atmosphere and warm camaraderie of her new family..her new team. She felt that perhaps this was the Team she was born to serve in. Rei Inoue indeed had found herself a new HOME:

Onboard the Morning Musume, a multi-role drone, KIWU was catapulted off the carrier's flight deck, veering portside as it automatically homed into its target. Somewhere in the Covert Ops Room, a Navy commander smiled in satisfaction as her pet project took flight literally into the sky.

A thousand mile away, the Special Warfare team Juice=Juice was preparing to raid the enemy stronghold when static was heard over their radio. The static soon made way for a clearer radio transmission.

"This is KIWU, calling Jaguar leader. Come in, Jaguar Leader. The HVT is not in the engagement zone. Do not proceed, over"

Tomoko furrowed her eyebrows, annoyed as she turned to face her exec, Sayuki. "Who the hell is KIWU?" To which the subleader just merely shrugged and signalled the rest of the team to hunker down and stand down.

"KIWU, identify yourself, over" Tomoko spoke over the satlink.

"Jaguar leader, look up. I had my eye on you the whole time you're there" A familiar voice took control at the other end, so crystal clear that you can even hear the kimoi (disgusting) and creepy voice tone of her former Ops officer"

"Karin?!!" Tomoko was too taken aback when she spotted the silvery trail of a small UFO up in the sky, too surprised that she broke the most basic military radio protocol.

"I had my eyes on you the whole time, Tomoko-chan"

Tomoko groaned. Even though Karin had already left the special warfare community, she was feeling both oddly creeped out and at the same time relieved the DIY department head was still literally watching over her and her team.

"Why KIWU? And how the heck did it found us?"

"KIWU means...Karin Is Watching U, Captain" Commander Miyamoto replied. "It automatically homes into the microchip implanted in each Juice member's arms while you guys were sleeping in the comfort of your officers quarters"

"Euwww...that sounds sooo creepy...yet, its soo Miyamoto-san" Ruru added over the comlink. But all humour aside, they were glad that Karin was still watching over them even if its from afar.

What?!! J=J is holding a general audition for new members, and a joint one with Tsubaki?!  :angry:

Whoever is chosen better be a talented girl who is worthy of wearing the Special Warfare badge..or else the power of Juice will be diluted.   :(

So this year 2021, I expect First Lieutenant Inaba and Lieutenant Danbara to be in charge of the Hell Week member selection and training camp, taking charge of their respective dance and vocal competencies categories.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT1DKs1sWOs

The 2 unit's CO,  Captain Kanazawa and Lieutenant-Commander Yamagishi explains the application criteria.

Tsubaki's entry selection for a new Surface Warfare gunner/specialist may well be less stringent than Juice, but it doesnt make it all the more risky that one wrong selection could bring the quality of the group down.

To cure their restlessness from lack of missions, the Juice members seem to be channeling their energies into improving their baking/cooking skills. One could say they are competitive with each other even when it comes to culinary skills! Truly adopting their special warfare mindset to every single aspect of life (except maybe Riai...singing skills aside, she needs to learn a thing or two about baking from her fellow Osakan LCDR Uemura before she starts on making macaroons)  :lol:

Danbara Ruru, Lieutenant (Special Warfare):
Something good about Juice=Juice is that we decide who gets 1st choice for bento by janken & we draw lots for Shinkansen seats
So I think we’re a good group for girls who are lucky 👏
We’ll be waiting for your applications 🌈

The Lieutenant has indeed implied the Creed of Juice=Juice which is:

"It doesnt matter what your rank or station is in life. The fact that you are SELECTED to join us means that you have EARNED your place among Hello's elite performers. That makes you our EQUALS and as testimony to this, our founding (first) Captain Miyazaki Yuka has implemented this tradition to embody the spirit of this Creed, as a reminder and remembrance of the eternal sisterhood of J=J"

KENMIN SEASIDE PARK, Ishikawa Prefecture

Sayuki was hauling the last of the diving gear of her customers on to the scuba office store when she noticed a woman in navy dress blues talking to her receptionist. The woman turned back to face her abruptly, wearing the expression of disappointment, anger and pity all at once.

"So this is what it's come to? You left a life of Special Warfare for THIS? To become a diving instructor?" Tomoko said as she folded her arms.

(https://i.imgur.com/EhtAcRw.jpg)

"It's a decent job. How did you know I was working here anyways?" Sayuki just gave a flat, nonchalant reply.

Tomoko sighed. "Hey, I was in town to visit Yuka-chan. If it weren't for the fact that Yuka-chan mentioned you are working here, I would never have known where you might've disappeared to...and this..after a month of ghosting me on LINE...THIS is the response I get?"

"Just like Yuka-chan..always minding other people's business" Sayuki muttered

Still, there was a hint of sadness in her former Captain's voice. It made Sayuki felt guilty for her abrupt departure from her Team..her beloved team members.

"No, Tomo.. after all that I've done, I don't deserve to wear that uniform anymore"

Tomoko approached her former subleader and opened her right palm, putting in it the gold trident, J=J's special warfare insigna.

"You should know better than anyone NONE of us would've cared. you've beaten yourself up for far too long...but we need you, Sayuki...I NEED my friend back"

(https://i.imgur.com/KFxPgfy.jpg)


"I'm sorry, Tomo.. It's a little too late for that" Sayuki returned the trident to the woman who used to be her most trusted, loyal confidant. As she retreated away from Tomoko, the tears start to flow from her eyes.

I must say, Yume has bloomed to become a really beautiful young lady. The YumeRiai combi has been talked about quite a few times from the fan's letters and I can see why this duo seems to be becoming the crowd Juice fan's favourite combi.

Just like any elite combat unit regularly reviews their mission performance during their After Action Debrief, Juice=Juice evaluates their performance in the MVs for Downtown and Ganbarenaiyo in the 1st part of this reaction video. Now we get to see the tradition and legacy that was implemented by the unit's first Captain (now Rear-Admiral) Miyazaki Yuka.

Before stepping out into the shooting range, Staff Sergeant Matsunaga undergoes a series of self-training to improve her posture as the unit's new sniper:

Apparently, her habit of hanging out at playgrounds at night off-base has rubbed off the octopus loving Staff Sergeant Kudo Yume:

The influence of the yankii member is too strong, even honour student type Yume gets influenced:

Fast forwards a few years later, Lieutenants Kudo and Matsunaga marched up to their Commanding Officer's office. Saluting the senior officer, they waited for the Captain to return the salute before sitting down:

Riai: "But THEY'RE the ones who started it, skipper!"

Ruru: "And you decided to break their noses?"

Ruru shakes her head in dismay as she stared at the Yumeriai combi.

Ruru: "Lucky for you, Captain Inoue, who now commands the "Miyazaki Yuka Special Warfare Academy" and in charge of training those same cadets, was in the neighbourhood and covered your  :shakeit:  from being arrested. If it were up to me,  I'd have you both grounded from participating in the next few missions we're tasked with"

The new Command Trio of Juice=Juice talks to Yahoo Japan to discuss the growth of their new members in their new gen lineup, in the light of the loss of their 2 pioneering members.

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/byline/saitotakashi/20210501-00235449/

Quote
Juice = Juice becomes a new system. While the two core members were missing, "My juniors grew up and my unity became stronger."


Hello! The project's talented group, Juice = Juice, has released the first single in a year, "DOWN TOWN". It was also the start of a new system in which Commander Karin Miyamoto and Commander Sayuki Takagi, who have been the main performers since their formation in 2013, have left. We asked the members, Captain Tomoko Kanazawa, Lieutenant-Commander Akari Uemura, and 1st Lieutenant Manaka Inaba, who are senior officers, about the current situation and prospects.

I have more time to talk with everyone
--Has the atmosphere of the group changed since the new system was established?

Manaka Inaba: LT Rei Inoue participated in the single for the first time, and her special voice percussion gives her an unprecedented taste, but in the dressing room she has such a cute face and is a funny character (laughs). I like strange faces and funny things. Originally it was a good group, but we have more time to talk about things that have nothing to do with performance.

-Is it like a girls talk?

Tomoko Kanazawa Maybe it's not very girly (laughs).

Inaba A delusion that doesn't make sense (laughs).

Akari Uemura We also have a sweets party. We made a place in the ready room, brought a desk, and kept the distance, and we all formed a circle.

Kanazawa: The sweets I brought with me were quite turnips, and there were many of the same ones (laughs).

――It's more cohesive.

Uemura is out. It may be the same on stage.

Kanazawa: Right now, we don't have a lot of work to get together, and I think that the cohesiveness when we got together has strengthened.

――When Inoue of the former Fist Factory joined your unit a year ago, did you get used to it right away?

Uemura That's right. Due to Rei chan's personality, she soon became accustomed to Juice = Juice, and I felt like, "Isn't it only one year yet?"

It feels good because it praises me so much (laughs)
――I was surprised when Mr. Inaba joined Country Girls two years after graduating three years ago, but did you immediately blend in at that time?

Uemura It didn't take long, right?

Inaba : It's a group of seniors who talk to me in a friendly manner and have no rigid hierarchical relationship.

 Aika Kanazawa is good (laughs). Communication skills are high, or talking makes me feel better. It really praises me (laughs).

Inaba There is only one place to praise (laughs).

――What do you praise?

Kanazawa: When I said in an interview that "the music video for the new song has a lot of facial expressions," he said something like "Kanazawa-san's beauty is that he can withstand the ups and downs."

Inaba: That's true, so please check it out on the music video (laughs).

Uemura: I also get praise for everyday events, but I don't remember because the praise words are so beautiful that I always deny that it's not the case (laughs).

――Mr. Inaba chooses words and praises them?

Inaba: I don't have the consciousness to choose, and I think Juice = Juice is really cute, beautiful, and the strongest.

 Aika Uemura (laughs).

Inaba: I usually look at the good points of everyone and just explode what I always think when it comes to the topic.

The two who seemed to quit first remained
――In the last few years, you have joined and operated as a group, and the original members are only Mr. Kanazawa and Mr. Uemura.

Uemura : Two unexpected people remained (laughs).

Kanazawa: I was surprised because we were about to disappear first (laughs).

――After all, do you feel that the group is quite different from the early days?

Kanazawa It feels like it has changed 180 degrees.

Uemura Juice = Juice is doing her best in singing, and recently she hasn't been able to get rid of her dance. I think that Aika and (Danbara) Ruru were included, and I think that I was able to improve my level without noticing it. The attitude of working on dance has also changed. In the past, there was something like "let's dance a little less" in the live composition, but this song also has a dance part.

Inaba Uemura says "Wow!" When I dance solo during the concert (laughs).

Kanazawa is saying, is saying.

I 'm really happy to see Aika Uemura 's dance nearby.

Inaba: Even though I had to be cool on the stage, he looked at me with applause and turned my hips toward the customers (laughs).

Uemura : I'm sorry for that section (laughs). But I'm staring at it.

Inaba: Mr. Uemura praises me like that, so I think I have to work harder.

(https://i.imgur.com/e1e1LM9.jpg)


I'm more excited about the future
――Even so, did you feel a sense of crisis this time because Karin Miyamoto and Sayuki Takagi, who have been the cornerstones of the group since their formation, have left?

Kanazawa: I think the fans were worried because they were really supported by those two people and it was the axis of the performance. However, I feel that my juniors are growing up steadily. For example, Ria Matsunaga often followed me by singing songs, but I really feel that the feeling of "more me" was born while creating the live performance. I myself felt negative, but I thought, "I have to do my best too."

(https://i.imgur.com/RWDCFWi.jpg)

Inaba : I'm still worried, but it's unavoidable that the two of us aren't there anymore, so I have to keep trying so that the current members can say, "I like this Juice = Juice." I became stronger.

Uemura: When some members were absent on the tour due to poor physical condition, I felt a sense of unity. I feel that Juice = Juice now has that kind of unity, so I'm more excited about the future.

Arranged by city pop to create an atmosphere different from the original song
--The new single is "DOWN TOWN" on both A sides. "DOWN TOWN" is a masterpiece of Sugar Babe led by Tatsuro Yamashita, but have you heard it normally?

 There was Uemura . I'm familiar with the covers of other artists, so I'm very happy to be able to sing such a famous song with Juice = Juice.

Kanazawa My father was a big fan of Tatsuro Yamashita, and I grew up listening to playing CDs at home since I was in kindergarten. My dad is more than happy to cover this song. "Because I am loved by the god of music, don't be rude," he said enthusiastically (laughs).

Inaba This time, the arrangement has a completely different atmosphere from the original song.

While the lightness and gorgeousness of Kanazawa City Pop, it has become a fashionable spring-like feeling.

 I wondered if the choreography of Inaba would dance a lot with a lively feeling, but the chorus was simple with just walking and posing, which was different from our imagination.

――Is there a feeling of excitement on Saturday night?

Inaba That's right. With the chorus of <Let's go to Down town>, I was conscious of walking with a little coolness and an adult feeling, instead of starting out with a slapstick.

――Mr. Uemura seems to have a lot of fun in the MV.

Uemura Did you understand? I didn't laugh so much in the music videos so far. This time, the director repeatedly said that he was "laughing too much" (laughs). I've never had such a thing before, but I'm pretty excited.

I felt sex appeal even if I wasn't aware of it (laughs)
--There was also a scene where Mr. Kanazawa pulled Mr. Inaba's tie from above.

He was the one who was instructed as it was what Director Kanazawa came up with with momentum. Even in my solo scene, it is said that "suspenders are bachin", and when shooting in pairs, it is usually cool, but "let's pull the tie" (laughs).

Inaba It's called "Guitto" (laughs).

Kanazawa : When I took a picture with such a glue, we were confused as to "Is this okay?" It's interesting that it's just a little floating there.

――What kind of feeling did Mr. Inaba, who was pulled, have?

Inaba It was an honor (laughs). Mr. Kanazawa's beautiful face and the distance were very close, and I was shocked.

Kanazawa: Once I couldn't stop laughing, I started over (laughs).

――In Kanazawa-san's solo scene, her older sister's sex appeal was refined.

Inaba is very sexy.

Kanazawa That's not true. At all.

Inaba I really feel the sex appeal that comes out without being conscious of it. The style is good, and this time I'm wearing tight pants, so I thought I was good at showing the lines of my body, even though I wanted to touch it a little (laughs).

Kanazawa It's the most embarrassing thing to say (laughs).

Uemura: I've been struck by Tomoko's sex appeal (laughs).

Kanazawa What are you talking about (laughs)!

Uemura: Through this music video, I once again felt that it was still wonderful.

I was singing with myself and I cried
―― "I can't do my best" is a ballad written by Aoi Yamazaki and composed by KOUGA. Do you remember the feelings depicted?

Kanazawa It 's like I was a while ago. There have been many times in my life that even if I did my best, I wasn't rewarded and I couldn't do my best. The feelings of overcoming it and the story of this song match very well, and it's a song that makes you feel comfortable.

Uemura <Buy the usual ice cream at the nearest convenience store> is also done by me. Recently, I'm addicted to chocolate ice cream. I'm collaborating with "Detective Conan", so I'm buying Conan-kun and Ai Haibara (package) very hard. I'm sorry for the light story (laughs).

――Mr. Inaba, <I left the parentheses>, did not overlap with me when I came to Tokyo from Hokkaido?

Inaba It was overlapping. Originally I liked ballads, so I was able to enter the world of the song quickly, and it sounded like tears in the recording.

――Did you have <I was lonely and called>?

Inaba Yes. I still make video calls with my mom almost every day. Because I don't want to worry, sometimes I can't say what I really want to talk about, so I sing while thinking "I don't understand."

―― <I struggled all night> too?

 There was Kanazawa . At first I couldn't dance at all and was practicing crying in the middle of the night. At the time of the first indie work, "I have to hug you before I say it," the choreography video was sent to me and I remembered it myself. I wanted the teacher to teach me one-on-one, but when I practiced until midnight and went to a lesson, the choreography changed ... I want to cry many times.

Uemura: I think that was the case with dance. But it erases my painful memories (laughs). I think I was the most angry at that time. For that reason, it is useful to remember that "I was told something like this" when I wake up now.

Inaba : There were many times when I thought, "I can't do my best." However, when I look back, I think that the memory of "that happened" is the proof of my growth. It really follows the flow of this song.

Kanazawa If I had this song when I was thinking "I can't do my best", I might have been more positive. Therefore, I hope to reach the hearts of everyone who listens to it now.

It feels like talking without singing
――Mr. Uemura is in charge of singing in "I can't do my best".

Uemura: The staff said, "It's amazing," but I never felt that it was such an important part. Perhaps I didn't have enough music knowledge, I thought that the important part was Ochisabi and the last line. But when I talked to Mizuki Fukumura, Morning Musume. I heard that the members who match the mood of the song are often assigned to start singing. I was happy that I could think of it that way, and I wanted to do my best.

--Mr. Kanazawa is in charge of the last <I want you to have real confidence that can't be deceived>.

Kanazawa : I'm not good at singing this song because I was told to sing it as if I were talking. When the switch is turned on, "I'll sing", the usage of the throat will change. That's why I always thought that Akari's "singing style without singing" was very good.

Uemura Really?

Kanazawa: It came into my ears and sang naturally without acting strangely, so I think it really suits this song. I had a hard time, but I'm glad I got the important last part, and I want to be able to sing like Akari.

I hit my emotions and danced freely
-There is also a limited edition with a solo version of 7 people recorded on DVD.

Inaba The only struggling point was that I cried because I put too much emotion into it. Because it's such a song, I wanted to sing it as if I were playing it, so the color of the voice was different from usual in the part that I couldn't do when it was hard, and the timing of breathing was a little earlier. Before I knew it, I got too involved and ended up saying "I can't sing anymore". But I like acting, so in that sense I enjoyed singing.

――Do you feel like you're crying every time when the lyrics are decided?

Inaba I felt more and more excited in one song. In the lyrics, No. 1 was frustrated saying "I can't do my best", and when I said "But I want to do my best", the gear inside me jumped up and I cried with tears. Is like a porori. Even now, when I listen to Ruri Danbara's Ochisabi, I almost always feel like crying.

――In the MV, Mr. Inaba's dance from the beginning is also a highlight.

Inaba It was a rainy day. At first, I was told to do a free dance behind Rei Inoue's lip scene, but I was surprised to find that I shot it many times. I hadn't decided on a swing, and I was only told to dance in a contemporary style, so I tried dancing around.

--Did you have any experience in contemporary dance?

 I have only seen Inaba . So I don't know what the correct answer is, but I don't think dance is something to think too much about. I tried not to pretend to be the same and danced as I like. It feels like I hit my emotions according to the mood of the song and sound.

Kanazawa was impressed.

 Combined with the fluffy and fluffy Inaba costume, I think I got used to the song with a good feeling.


Listen to other people's songs before recording
――It's been a year since you released the single, but is there anything you do routinely before recording?

 While listening to and practicing Inaba songs, I imagine in advance something like "I'm sure you'll be careful like this." I thought that "DOWN TOWN" would be said to "give a sense of rhythm" or "jump and sing," so I practiced with that in mind.

Uemura I remember the songs and then listen to the songs of other people.

Kanazawa Eh, why?

Uemura: Even if you normally listen to songs, you steal a little bit of breathing points before recording, and when you hear the songs of the members recorded in front of you in the studio, you can imitate them. That's why I listen to other people's songs to the last minute and adjust the tension.

――Do you mean listening to songs that have a similar taste to the songs you record?

Uemura: I used to listen to it randomly, but my playlists have a lot of Western music, and sometimes my feelings get so excited that it doesn't fit. While listening to a lot of Japanese music's calm singing songs, I wrote "I can't do my best" on the lyrics card, such as "I can hear this kind of voice beautifully" or "Let's make a little vibrato from here".

Kanazawa: I'm not very good at recording, and I've been nervous since I got the song.

--Mr. Kanazawa, who has a good reputation for stable singing ability?

Kanazawa For example, if a song arrives a week ago, you can only listen to that song for the whole week. I'm not very good at making fluffy orders like "singing like this". My head was stiff and I didn't get into things like "I think there's a person in front of me". So, as Aika said, I anticipate that I will be instructed, and I will make a few patterns and bring them with me.

――You have a personality.

Kanazawa: I 'm clumsy, so I can only do that. I just write on the lyrics card. Here, how many beats should be extended, how many beats should be vibrato, how many beats should be straight, and the position of the breath. If you don't see that kind of information, you won't be able to do anything. I also write out the image that came up by myself and "I should sing like this", so the lyrics card turns black (laughs).

It may be okay for new members to join
――We are currently conducting a new member audition jointly with Tsubaki Factory, and this is probably the first and last single of these seven people.

Kanazawa That's right. Is there a new member next?

Uemura fun ~!

 Regarding the Kanazawa audition, we also have no information. I'm full of excitement about how many people will enter and how old children will come.

Inaba : I want you to be a good girl because everyone is getting along well and doing their best now. However, if you look at the group objectively, I think it would be more interesting to have some children with a little thorns.

Uemura It 's okay to have enough spice to look aggressive. If Juice = Juice now, it can be stored in a circle.

The current members of Kanazawa are modest, good or bad. When you insert it, no one will take the last remaining one. So I wonder if it's okay for a rugged child to come in.

Uemura When I look at BEYOOOOONDS, there are many children who have great abilities. I would be happy if you could bring some special skills to Juice = Juice. I was aiming for Yoshimoto (Kogyo), but for some reason I came to Hello! Project (laughs).

 It would be interesting to have Kanazawa .

Uemura I would use it (laughs).

I think both succession and revolution are important
――On the other hand, do you want to inherit the goodness of Juice = Juice from the beginning?

Kanazawa: I've been studying historic buildings for a while recently, but it's important to inherit the value, and I have to change something, so I have both. I think it's the same for groups. This is Juice = Juice's first new member audition, and we have to do something revolutionary. However, Juice = Juice has more live performances than other groups, and I have a passion for each performance. It is natural to value performance on stage, but I definitely want you to inherit it.

――How do you study about historical buildings?

 I've always liked Kanazawa World Heritage Sites, so I started studying from that point. The colors are completely different depending on the country and the times, and in Japan there are many buildings such as Kabuki-za in Ginza that are still being renovated, so there is a lot to learn.

Inaba I entered on the way, but I always had the impression that Juice = Juice was a group with amazing people. Even if there are two original members, the foundation is not shaken. We have to absorb more from people who have overcome various things, such as a tour of 220 solo live performances, and I want all the members to have that kind of feeling.

――What kind of things do you want to absorb from Mr. Uemura?

Uemura: My roots are dead (laughs) and I can't absorb anything.

Inaba Uemura is a genius, isn't he? It doesn't mean that you haven't made an effort, but the original potential is too high. It's a part that I can't imitate, but when I see the shining figure, I think "this is the aura of a human being on the stage" or simply "beautiful", and I feel like trying my best to improve myself. Will be.

Uemura: On the contrary, the juniors are so talented that they humbly admire them even though they can be overwhelming, so they have already inherited everything they should have inherited. Rather, I hope that new things will be born.

Kanazawa That is absolutely necessary.

I am still disappointed they didn't select Runo even though she's Special Forces material in terms of talent.   :cry:
And its clear that Runo seems to be trying to hide her disappointment too during the reveal announcement.

That said, I congratulate Kisaki, Risa and Ichika for qualifiying into the Special Warfare community! Hope we can see these girls fighting in combat soon!!   :)

There seems to be an air of intimidating atmosphere around Juice=Juice members??

While collecting her bento lunch at the Fleet HQ mess hall, Sergeant Tamenaga Shion was invited by Riai to sit at J=J's table where Captain Kanazawa and Lieutenants Danbara and Inoue were eating their food with her. Shionnu ate her bento quickly and excused herself without saying a word to them. Matsunaga realized that she probably either felt intimidated by Special Forces members or her "arch-enemy" Hashisako Rin have earlier instructed her kouhai not to associate with the specialist called Yafuzo. And so, the Hashisako Corps vs Yafuzo army cold war continues, but this time Yafuzo will have another Osakan, Ichika on her side of the ring! The cold proxy war is expected to escalate:

AFTER ACTION REPORT
To: REAR ADMIRAL AKARI UEMURA
Director, Naval Special Warfare

Admiral,

This report is to document the events which occurred on DEC 20, 2028 involving members of the 6th NAVAL FLEET.

At 1130HRS JST on aforementioned date, 04 members from JSF Group JUICE, LT Riai Matsunaga (the ranking senior), Staff Sergeants Risa Irie, Ichika Arisawa and Kisaki Ebata boarded ANA FLIGHT NH990 departing from KANSAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT returning from their R&R Leave in Osaka bound for Tokyo. They were joined by naval aviator, 1st LT Rio Kitagawa (Squadron CVN6 Morning Musume), a close friend of LT Matsunaga.

Eyewitness report collated from the JUICE members debrief placed an attempted hijacking of flight NH990 by a group of terrorist at 1200HRS with the use of light firearms on the cabin crew. 2 cabin attendants were wounded before 2 of the perpertrators attempted access to the Flight Deck. Carefully assessing the volatile situation, LT Matsunaga discreetly coordinated, using low-key hand signs, the movements of her 3 junior Team members in accordance to their training of CQB (Close Quarters Battle) combat. SSG Arisawa and SSG Ebata managed to disarm and neutralize 4 terrorists which were holding the Economy class section passengers hostage. SSG Irie, along with LT Matsunaga charged forward to the fore section of the aircraft when the Flight Deck was eventually breached. Regretfully, before the situation at the cockpit can be contained, both pilot and co-pilot were slained by the 2 terrorists. LT Matsunaga and Irie quickly terminated both men with extreme prejudice. With the loss of both qualified pilots, 1LT Kitagawa was called upon to take the helm of the aircraft as she was the only flight officer with enough aviation experience to make an emergency landing on the nearest airfield. She was assisted by LT Matsunaga who took up the co-pilot provisional role. By1400HRS JST, both officers successfully effected an emergency landing at Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO), with no casualties to the passengers.

In light of LT Matsunaga's intelligence and quick-witted leadership during the crisis, I would like to recommend Command to consider her promotion to 1st Lieutenant as she has demonstrated extraordinary leadership abilities under pressure in order to prevail in this situation. I would also like to recommend Staff Sergeants Arisawa, Ebata and Irie for the Bronze Sakura medal for their valour and bravery and the Distinguished Flying Medal (DFM) to 1LT Kitagawa for successfully landing the aircraft. All mentioned members have performed admirably in the best traditions of the Navy and the Forces as a whole.

Corporal Irie took it upon herself to be the 6ki's camerawoman when they are training in J=J's physically-demanding Hell Week phase. Even though their muscles are still healing, they managed to keep their spirits in high tension. Hang in there, never give up! As your seniors of current and previous generations have done, "NEVER NEVER SURRENDER!"


http://c-ute.doorblog.jp/archives/55958606.html

"When I was stretching before the performance, Ichika-chan and Kisaki-chan were so interesting that I just took a picture . And I got permission from them properly! Lol muscle pain is still healing and is two photos of not of a few days before the dance lessons first sheet "one Fahrenheit and Eba like to start a stretch" handsome work hard to "one Fahrenheit thigh back did not endure painful Teru Eve-like " comedian " spirit unified to one Fahrenheit and back knee is sore and Eve like to agony " I while I think that the photos pretty nice timing was taken laughs it is still also set before the rare shot off hair I would like to continue taking many pictures as two exclusive photographers, so please look forward to it!"

And Ichika blogged about her Sports Day at school 2 years ago. She said that she was not athletic person at all, except for dodgeball where she excels at evading the ball much like she would excel in dodging enemy bullets during combat.

Quote
Yesterday, it was too hot.

I thought I would get heatstroke. Immediately, I drank a sports drink.

With just a sip of it, I re-energized!

In case you have a moment like, "Shoot, something wrong with my body." (because of heat) Please, drink water right away.

You promise?

Speaking of a hot day,

I want to share a story about my school sports day held two years ago.

To be honest, I am NOT athletic.

Especially ball games...


In a volleyball game, the ball I hit returns directly to my face.

I am always dribbling out of the court before I even attempt to shoot in a basketball game. Oh, I can swim...if allowed to use a kickboard. lol


Although I am not good at sports,

At one of the sports day events, the dodgeball game, I had become the last infield player of my team on the court.


Getting behind the throwers on my team, I kept running around in circles during the game.


and in the end, I  was left all alone

Oh, gosh...I'm scared.

Three infield players, fairly athletic type, on the opposing team VS Miss Clumsy.

My strategy:

An extreme defense is the best defense.

I counted on my outfield players on offense.

Believe it or not,

I kept squirming away from the fastballs.

AND I MADE IT!!!!

We wooooon!!

That was the first time I achieved something in sports. hehe
All the teammates praised me.
I felt at the top of the world.😂

Moreover, our team became the overall champion for the sports day.
I was thrilled!
Do you have any sports day memories?
I might have more stories😏

In other veteran OG news, Karin somehow "offended" Vice-Admiral Michishige Sayumi when Sayumi said that they (her, Karin and Airi Suzuki) will not be performing any J=J songs during their M-Line performance. Karin responded by saying "That's right. If you don't sing well, you can't become Juice = Juice". That somehow triggered the former Hello Pro Fleet Commander:


https://twitter.com/orangeno6/status/1420706566253146112

Karin: "Even if Michishige-san somehow makes it as the center of J=J, I still will not allow her to sing"

Rio: Oii, Matsunaga!!

Riai: Oii Kitagawa! What do you want?!

Rio: Heard from your CO that you and Kudo earned yourselves a promotion.

Riai: Kitagawa!! Are you CONGRATULATING me?!

Rio: Don't push your luck, Yankii! Just because you both rescued me from that Russian Gulag one time, doesn't mean I owe you guys or anything. Don't get too cocky ok?

Riai (smiling): I guess that means it's Belgian Waffles on YOU again at Maison Dandoy. See ya later, Rio.   :hand:

During the latest Hello Station Fleet News, we get to know from Lieutenant Inoue that Riai has taken her role of instructor/senior and mentor to the 6th Gen very seriously...to the point that Rei calls her a "proper senpai" and the senior officers were all proud of her. Tsubaki's Captain Yamagishi is eager to see Riai in action as a senior since she always had the image of the younger being the babied spoiled brat. I guess that explains a lot why Riai has been texting and messaging her skipper quite regularly lately (source: Pocket Morning)..she wants to get advise on how to properly lead and mentor her juniors. When the baton is eventually passed to her generation (with Yume) for leadership and command, I have no doubts that Juice will be in good hands!

(Click Below link to the timestamp)

https://youtu.be/42J0ik5qRl8?t=166

The newbies will undergo further advanced training with their instructors according to the senior's specialty:

Combat Strategies/Unit Operations: CAPT Kanazawa (also Marksmanship due to her Archery accomplishments)

Unarmed/Close Quarters Combat: CMDR Uemura (certified Judo black belt and strong arms, also instructs PT)

Sniper Marksmanship: LT Danbara, unit's sharpshooter and all-rounded sniper and badass (with CAPT Kanazawa)

Land Warfare, Navigation, Scouting, Recon & Stealth Ops: LT Inoue (due to her extensive experience as Kobushi's scout, plus her excellent drawing skills is an asset when teaching them how to draw maps and land terrain features)

Diving, Sea & Underwater Combat: SSG Kudo (no-brainer, because she can breathe underwater for hours, thanks to her half-octopus, half-human DNA)

Air Paratrooping/Air Combat HALO Jumping: SSG Matsunaga (she's an adrenaline junkie who enjoys being "high", also an extreme sports enthusiast) (also co-instructs Physical Training with CMDR Uemura)

Infiltration & Espionage Operations: LCDR Inaba (a chameleon; due to her cunning azatoi nature, she can infiltrate enemy lines by posing as a damsel in distress, then sabotages enemy operations from within)

And finally, get to know the 6th Gen by following the UpFront Link. Here's Ichika appealing to you in English with Risa and Kisaki. You don't wanna disappoint them, do you?:

After the training session, Staff Sergeant Matsunaga dismissed her kouhais but asked Corporal Ebata to stay behind.

Taking our her phone and showing it to the younger, Riai proceeds to interrogate her kouhai

Riai: "Kisaki-chan, what are you doing in this 2-shot with this low-life, ungrateful, thuggish individual? Please tell me she's not trying to recruit you into her Hashisako Army"

(https://livedoor.blogimg.jp/colorhello/imgs/1/e/1ea61fac-s.jpg)

Kisaki: "Sorry, Senpai...I didn't know it was bothering you so much. It's just a 2-shot and she said she wouldn't get to see me in a while next few months..you don't need to worry about it"

Riai: "Hmmhh...just a 2 shot eh? Be careful, Kisaki-chan, this individual (Riai won't even mention Rin's name) have already recruited several new kouhais from the other units and ships. She is one scheming person. And, NOBODY messes with my Juice=Juice kouhais...NOT ON MY WATCH!!"

[Kisaki whispers to Yume]

Kisaki: "Kudo-Senpai, why does Matsunaga-senpai hates Hashisako-san so much?"

Yume: "You mean you don't know?! These two have been at a Cold War with each other ever since Rin-chan left the base for home without waiting for Riai. It's been 2 years since the last spoke to each other"

Kisaki:  :shocked

While J=J was on a mission inside the island jungle, Corporal Ebata Kisaki suddenly screamed out loud.

Manaka: Kisaki, what's wrong?!

[Kisaki starts pointing in a northerly direction]
Kisaki: Ma'am, I saw something on my night vision goggles. Its heading towards us from that direction.

[At this point, Uemura Akari, their team's XO, came over]
Akari: Ebata, what is it? Who did you see? Is it the enemy?

Kisaki [shivering]: It's a ghoul, Commander. I saw it. its glaring at me with his teeth out

[Akari, as the field commander for this mission, gestured for Riai and Ruru to head north to check out. A moment later, they returned both shaking their heads to affirm the negative. Both Manaka and Akari sighed]

Manaka: Mou, Kisaki-chan! You should'nt have listened to Marin's horror stories before we departed The Tsubaki for this mission. You're bound to start imagining things out here if you do that.

Midshipman Matsunaga, currently an officer-in-training, penned an emotional blog post reflecting on how much she truly loves her unit and pledged to carry on her senior officers' and illustrious predecessors' legacy. Riai mentioned that the love and support (and being spoiled) she received from her senpais as a new member she will pay it forward to the current shin members as a new senpai herself:

Quote
Yafuzo

Today we had a lesson with Juice = Juice.

I have to take good care of it because I haven't had many opportunities to train with Juice = Juice these days. I feel that my feelings have become stronger.

I think that the form of "cherish" is different for each member, but when I wondered what it was, it is the importance for me to protect the roots of Juice = Juice made by my seniors so that they will not die. I thought that making various changes within me is inherent in evolution, but I want to cherish only the roots of this group.

My root image is about performance awareness and level 💡 and inheriting the consciousness and level of successive Juice = Juice seniors

"I am a member of Juice = Juice"


My consciousness and level are too low.

And I can't say (to the new members) "depend on me", I, who has been spoiled recently, and I don't think it's something I would say lightly.

I'd like to tighten my mind again and give a whisper(reminder) to me who has been spoiled recently (by my seniors).

I will do my best to inherit it (J=J's legacy) properly.

The senior officers shared their experiences with their kouhai unit and you cant help but notice how Runo seemed to be awestruck by the senior members of her favourite group's presence.   8)

on a more sombre note, Commanding Officer Capt Kanazawa will suspend her combat duties with her unit due to the resurgence of her chronic endometriosis. On behalf of the Fleet, we pray for Capt Kanazawa's full recovery and speedy return to active duty.  :(

https://sugoiyabai.wordpress.com/2021/09/16/juicejuice-on-the-announcement-of-kanazawa-tomokos-break/ (https://sugoiyabai.wordpress.com/2021/09/16/juicejuice-on-the-announcement-of-kanazawa-tomokos-break/)

Particularly heartwarming one was from Midshipman Matsunaga:

Quote
An announcement was just made about Kanazawa Tomoko-san taking a break from activities for the time being

While I’m worried about her, worrying about it won’t end it or anything

And Zoku Kachou Fuugestu will be starting!

I’ll carry the burden of being the Juice=Juice representative in Tsuki
For Kanazawa-san’s sake as well.

I’m sure all of you are worried about her too, but let’s graciously wait for her

Kanazawa-san, if you ever feel lonely

I’ll fly over to your place

Everyone, please rest assured! 👍🏻

Tomoko heard a knock on her door. Coming to it, she peered through the peephole but finding nobody outside.
Sighing, Tomoko headed back to her couch. A few steps from the door, and the door suddenly unlocks and in barges someone entering her apartment noisily

"CAPTAIIIIIINNNN!!!!"

Matsunaga Riai yelled at the top of her lungs, causing Tomoko to almost collapse of cardiac arrest from the shock. Riai enters politely apologizing "Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu, my favourite Captain"

Juice=Juice will deploy to perform at Yokohama Arena near Naval Station Yokosuka.

Some wotas online were floating speculations that this may be Captain Kanazawa's graduation concert, but nothing official of that sort have been confirmed by Up-Front. Let's hope not cos I'm not prepared to lose her at this point.

A few years into the future, Danbara Ruru enters the office space of a beloved senior officer:

RURU: Admiral, I don't think I can DO this! How did you, Kanazawa-san and Miyazaki-san managed with commanding Juice=Juice so well. What's your secret?

AKARI: Sit down, Captain. Listen to me. There is no such thing as a perfect leadership style. Ruru, you just have to be yourself, not force yourself to be someone you're not...the REAL you, that's what's important. Of course it helps if the members help you out a lot if you're nice to them..but then again, Tomoko's not ALWAYS nice, but she had her own unique style.

RURU: You're so well-liked by the members because of all those goofy and funny side you show to the members. So I should be like that?

AKARI: No, Baka!! You've always been the technically most gifted one of us, even at the level of Sayuki..why don't you just lead by example...you can be the inspiration your kouhais would push themselves to follow.

Ruru nodded with tears in her eyes still remembering her beloved senpai's graduation, before leaving the room. Akari though, suddenly recalls those goofy funny moments the younger have captured on her Instagram for posterity:

We get to see the 6th Gen (ie. the 3flowers) in action during the FC event held recently. there is definitely potential for improvement for this trio of newbies..they are not bad or anything, in fact, for newbies, they are pretty decent...they just need more polishing to reach JUICE's elite level because the basic vocal potential IS there, contrary to what haters may say. Risa, in particular, really surprised me because not only is she able to reach the other 2 ex-KSS level of vocal performance, at some points of these 2 songs, I feel she actually MAY grow up to be the best vocally among this trio. And yeah...they should not have attempted Magic of Love in retrospect because it will be out of their depth...but kudos to them for being brave enough to perform it. God, I REALLLY MISS SAYUKI!

Are Kore Shitai:

and of course, we wrap things up with an always-capable performance of Ai no Diving by senior officers Commander Uemura and Lieutenant Inoue

During Manaka/Uemuu's BD event, they were asked where the members were seated in a classroom if they are students. Aarii selected Tomoko as the sensei while Manaka puts Riai at the very back of the class at the corner, alluding to her troublemaker yankii aura...  :lol:

Today, the 3 new members of JUICE voluntarily did extra training together outside of their official work hours. They were surprised when acting Ensigns Kudo and Matsunaga turned up and taught them the finer arts of the performance of a special warfare operator.

From CORPORAL Arisawa's blog:

Quote
Hi, there!
How was your day?🥰
Thank you for your likes and comments.☺️
I started doing my own hair after I had become a H!P Kenshusei member and bought a curling iron.
It was about a year ago!!

I still burn my forehead occasionally.😂

Today, when we, the three new members, were practicing alone, Kudo-san and Matsunaga-san came over to see how we were doing.
They gave us tips and taught us patiently. 😭

When they showed us how to dance, even a just little movement looked sooo cool, as if they had been on the actual stage. I felt my whole body heat up.

Let me speak OUT LOUD.
 Yeeeeeeeeeeeee haw🔥

Thank you for reading all the way here.


Yume was surprised at how good Riai is as a trainer/teacher:

Quote
I haven't taught much so far, so today I was pretty excited, but ... I was happy because they (the new members) listened to me seriously ☺️
Please contact me even after it's over 💭

It's nice (* ´-` *)

And Riai is so good at teaching! !! !! I also learned a lot from Riai, so

"It's easy to get confused! It's like this!"

I did it while soaking in it ( laughs )

It ’s very difficult to explain again,

I thought our seniors were really amazing 💭

I mean...look at the camaraderie! This is the future of JUICE=JUICE! It is clear that these 5 had a strong desire to improve in order to keep up J=J's legacy and reputation as an elite unit, such that they even put in extra hours for further training (and YUMERIAI is there to teach them the ropes). Their dedication and commitment is reminiscient of the hardworking Original Five led by Yuka. I can only expect great things for this new era for Juice=Juice

Vice-Admiral(R) Yuka Miyazaki: "Juice = Juice new members are trying to protect the colour (characteristics, reputation) of the group, but feel free to do what you like!"

In an exclusive interview with LOGAL, the former JUICE Commanding Officer shares her thoughts as Captain of an elite unit and her anguish from the secret story at the time of Team's formation that she reveals now. The now-3 star reserve Admiral noticed the new members of her former unit were under a lot of pressure which they set themselves to live up to the high bar and standards her first generation have set as the young gen's predecessor, instead Yuka wanted their unique personalities to naturally shape and evolve the character of the group in the future and not to be too rigid in maintaining the tone and character her older gen has.

However, as they say, the mark of a truly great leader is that her legacy will still continue years into the future. We all noticed that Yuka's flexible intellect and affection have united a group with disjointed personalities in the initial stage, and you can see that the unified atmosphere is still alive even till this day when Tomoko takes over command of the unit. Juice = Juice may be changing, but I feel that the spirit of the first CO, Yuka, still remains at the root and core of Juice=Juice's values. In juice, this is characterised in the warmth with a sense of family while still being a skilled group that cares about and learns from each other every day.

Post by: bluewind78 on November 17, 2021, 10:12:47 AM
I had a very vivid dream about Juice last night. In this dream, I was in the 3rd person looking at the whole situation as an outsider. Anyway, here goes…

Quote
Miyazaki Yuka entered the hallway of Special Warfare Command. As she was just about to enter the lift taking her to the 3rd floor of the building, she passed by an old photo of “TEAM JUICE PIONEER GENERATION” hung up on the adjacent wall titled “Special Warfare Hall of Fame”, hung just on top of a trophy cabinet full of unit and fleet commendation her first generation have amassed for so many years. For just that one brief moment, Miyazaki Yuka wished she could relive those times again with her Original Five..her beloved Original Five.

Upon reaching the 3rd floor, Yuka grabbed the handle of the door to Team Juice’s Dressing/Ready Room, half expecting the room to be empty.

“Miyazaki-san!! You’re here!!”

Yuka laughed girlishly after receiving a sudden big hug from Danbara Ruru from behind just as she was opening the door. The older one turned around and returned Ruru’s big warm hug. Just then, from inside the Ready Room, Inoue Rei stood straight and the 6th Generation instantly got up from their seats.

“Admiral on Deck!!” Rei announced as the shin members bowed profusely to their dai-sempai of Special Warfare. Yuka smirked after noticing that she had inadvertently interrupted their “Werewolf Game”, a pastime she had engaged with her own members when she was leader of the Team, while they waited for arrival on their mission stages. Oh, how time flies, but she is glad that the new members are continuing this legacy of their predecessors.

“Please...as you were, minna.” Yuka reciprocated with a short bow, smiling at the newcomers before turning to face Ruru and Rei, the most senior officers in the room. “Girls, I need to see your CO now”

Ruru and Rei exchanged confused looks at each other.

“I think the skipper is still at the galley, Admiral. Probably still engaged in a janken battle with YumeRiai for the last premium tako bento lunchbox” Rei chimed in.

Yuka’s eyes widened. “Seriously? You guys are STILL deciding bento allocation using janken?”

Ruru smiled widely as she led the way to the galley. “Well, you know Admiral. It’s the little old traditions that makes Juice=Juice a truly GREAT unit. And we have YOU to thank for that. Besides, Kanazawa-san and Uemura-san INSISTED we continued these traditions”

As they were entering the galley floor, Yuka heard a loud “YATTA!!” in that same beloved characteristic scream that she had come to miss so long ago. The sight of a jubilant Captain Uemura Akari pumping her fist in the air was certainly a welcome sight, after so long.

Uemu then raced forward to hug her former leader. “Why didn’t you text me you’re coming?”

“That’s the thing, Uemuu...its about Sayuki….”


It was at that very point that my alarm clock gave me a rude awakening.  :lol:

Then I cried when they showed a preview of Familia on today's Hello Station  :cry:

For the next DVD Magazine Vol 34, Team Juice went for a Forest Land Training Exercise to build its member's physical strength and build unity with Commander Uemura leading the way. A classic forest wargames with Green vs Red Teams format. Commodore Kanazawa served as observer/commentator in this one at SWHQ's Cafe. I guess its safe to assume Akari is confirmed to take over command of Juice=Juice after Tomoko's departure:

The Kanazawa Reign of J=J is officially over. Our immense gratitude to CAPT Kanazawa for the fine job she has done to pull the unit together and lead by example. With such a phenomenal performer gone, it will not be easy to fill her shoes, but Juice will continue to evolve just like it did after Commodore Miyazaki's departure.

We welcome Captain (Select) Uemura Akari who officially takes over as the 3rd Commanding Officer of Special Warfare Team Juice:

There is nothing else that needs to be said between these 2 senior orimen, because the tears that welled up in their eyes tells a deep and long history of love and affection for the group, and each other.

During the decision on which colours to designate the YumeRiai combi, the office (navy brass) initially decided on assigning Light Pink to Riai and Royal Blue to Yume. However, during the latest We Are JJ Radio programme, Riai revealed to everyone that the office's decision has been vetoed and overturned by then leader former Capt Kanazawa, who stated that the initial colours are not matching their personalities. In view of this, the colours were assigned in favour of Capt Kanazawa's input, which is Light Pink for Yume and Blue for Riai. I guess the leader has certain coercive influence in the backstage on the staff and office that we fans rarely knowing these days, more so the office of Juice=Juice Leader, the most elite of H!P's units.

In today's Fleet Apukami, we get to see the team recording of Future Smile MV. Catch Sergeant Arisawa playing the violin at 5:46 !
Though pressure to perform is overwhelming for any newcomer joining JJ, one thing for certain is that they are all proud to belong to the unit..thus, any newcomer with outstanding unique skill and ability like Rei (Voice Percussion) and Ichika with the violin is a source of pride and confidence as a special warfare unit:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9ztftH1sZY

With so many skilled members, I can totally see Juice perform as a bona fide band at least once...perhaps in the following roles:

Leader/Producer: Akari Uemura (Leader is creative in exploiting her team member's abilities..this I know for certain)
Vocalist/Video Editing: Kisaki Ebata
Backing Vocalist/Tamborine: Yume Kudo
Composer/Arrangement/Main Vocalist: Riai Matsunaga
Dance Choreographer/Main Dancer/Backing Vocalist: Manaka Inaba
Voice Percussion/Main Vocalist: Rei Inoue

Townwork Magazine interviewed Juice=Juice's 3rd Commanding Officer, Captain Akari Uemura who opens up with her frank opinions, hopes and dreams for her life and her unit.

Source:  https://townwork.net/magazine/job/workstyle/124253/

(https://i.imgur.com/7CxsodZ.jpg)

Quote
Captain Akari Uemura, who became the last original member of Juice = Juice and became the unit's third Captain last month. "When the unit was formed, I was about to disappear first (laughs)," she said, and has achieved great growth in the eight years since her debut. Before the release of triple A-side singles such as the cover of "Plastic Love", which symbolizes the city pop boom, we asked her to talk about the present, past, and future.

I could become a leader like a therapy dog ​​(laughs)
――Akari, who was the youngest when Juice = Juice was formed, finally became the Commander of the group

You'll be surprised. I didn't expect my older comrades to leave the group all at once in a year of angry waves, and I was surprised that I would become the leader (laughs).

In the early days, when asked "What kind of person would you like to be for the new members?", I answered "like a dog" (laughs). Now that I know that dogs can't enter Juice = Juice, I hope I can heal everyone in a standing position like a therapy dog ​​(laughs).

――You aim to be a healing leader.

Even if I don't pull the group forward, all the members are excellent. In the old days, I used to say something I wanted to say without stopping. Now I'm in the position of the other person and think about how I can do something everyone can accept. Even for me like this, I sometimes get a consultation asking "What should I do?" And I am confident that I am looking at the child properly, so I can say the opinion that I think is the best. I became an adult there.

 

I don't want to lower the level of the group
――The idol wasn't an aim for yourself, but you were recommended by your aunt to be a Morning Musume. You became a Hello Pro Kenshuusei trainee after you auditioned for the 9th term.

that's right. I was in Osaka until the middle of my second year of junior high school and was a very ordinary junior high school student. I liked animals, so I was a breeding committee member, running around in the classroom, and spending my time really freely. As it is now, my friends often said, "Akari is ready!" (Laughs).

――While all Hello Pro Kenshuusei trainees are trying to make their debut, Akari-san, who is at her own pace, may have changed.

It remained unfussy (laughs). You were divided into teams by saying "I can, or can't" sing and dance. I'm always on the side of what I can't do, and rather than trying hard, I just ask, "What should I do?" I couldn't even set a goal and couldn't think of a debut at all.

――But you were selected as a member of Juice = Jucie.

I was surprised. I couldn't keep up while there was a big senior trainee presence. I was a member of the lowest rank and file and I didn't want to lower the overall level of the group because of my low abilities. Even after graduating from the trainees, I was asked to take lessons and relearned from the flexibility of the basics and the core.

 

Every singing lesson was going to be anemic

――Akari-san, after her debut, has the impression that the degree of growth of the song was particularly amazing.

My song was so bad that the instructor got tired (laughs). When I concentrated on speaking out, I wasn't physically fit and I was almost anemic every lesson. I was the type who sang with a sense, so I didn't understand the words of instruction, and I had a face like "?". I think that one of the reasons for my growth was that the teacher saw it and told me to "sing first" before I thought about it.

――When you first sang "Don't be fooled, hug me" and your part was only "Hey", did you get sick?

I didn't get sick (laughs). "Hey," wasn't one, but Yuka Miyazaki and me. I was more conscious of trying harder.

――Did you feel that you opened your eyes to the song somewhere?

As the number of songs split increased, I was often told that I was getting better, but I didn't really feel it at all with the feeling of "Why would you say that?" If you still say that, it will be "That's right."

--Are you good at falsetto?

Falsetto and bass are easy to put out, but I'm not good at the most important center (laughs). However, I think that taking advantage of what you can do for the time being will lead to a better evaluation as a result.

 

I don't want to feel the distance even in a big venue

――When do you especially feel the fun of idols?

It's an overwhelming stage. Juice = Juice has always cherished live performances and has done 220 live house tours, so I don't want to think that the fans are far away even on a big stage like the Yokohama Arena last time. I definitely wanted to see it from corner to corner. I want to keep that feeling unchanged.

――The 220 tours in 2015 would have been physically difficult.

It was so hard that the word "hard" couldn't even describe how tough it was(laughs). Raise your arms, jump, talk on MC. I realized that I would use my physical strength for each one. I think that I got the physical strength to move easily on the current stage because I got over that when I was 16 years old.

――Akari, who has a bright image, has never been in a pinch as much as "I want to quit"?

There were only twice (laughs). It was like "I want to go home", but it's big for me. At that time, I try to hide it. I think it's better to put it in words, but I still can't do that, and the (original first gen) members don't even know it.

――How did you get over it?

Even if I was worried about Juice = Juice, on the contrary, I often stayed because it was Juice = Juice. Even if you have been hurt, if you have repeated tonsillitis or if you feel sick, just being with the members will make you feel better.

 

I want to cherish the relationship with people
--Have you ever come to take good care of yourself as an idol?

I have come to strongly want to value the relationship with people. I've been thinking for a long time, but I rarely put my thoughts into words, and people around me seemed to be light. Because I was clumsy, I sometimes made a mistake in how to convey the words.

However, since I became the captain, I would like to honestly convey my thoughts to the people around me and my fans. I would like to do my best to let people who have a strong relationship with Juice = Juice know more about Juice = Juice.

――When you hear that story, I feel that Akari has grown up, but the natural characters don't seem to change (laughs).

Is it natural? I think I'm a strange person (laughs).

――In a famous episode, you heard that carbonated water tightens your face and tried to wash your face with cider (laughs).

That's just the beginning (laughs). Hello! Morning Musume on a project tour. I often spend time with (now-Commander) Sakura Oda and Lieutenant Akane Haga in '21, and I get caught dozens of times every day. I don't remember what I did because it was too trivial, but I was told, "I wouldn't be surprised if Akari was an alien child" (laughs).

 

Fake associated with the previous song

――What kind of music do you usually listen to?

There are many Western music. Because my mom used to play it for a long time. Fifth Harmony, Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne ... There are more women. Miley Cyrus started listening to various things.

--Did you know Mariya Takeuchi's "Plastic Love" that you covered in this single?

I was familiar with the rust part. I was honored to be in the masterpiece when I covered "DOWN TOWN" last time, but I didn't realize that city pop was the current trend. When I looked up various things on YouTube, I thought it was amazing that many people were singing all over the world.

-Akari has a fake.

The last fake of "DOWN TOWN" and the fake I'm in charge of this time have the same sound. The song was written by Tatsuro Yamashita and Mariya Takeuchi, and I secretly put it in because I wanted to associate it with my husband and wife (laughs).

―― “Future Smile” is jazz-style and fashionable, isn't it Akari's favorite?

All the members love this song. The early Juice = Juice-like and mature vibe made me feel a little nostalgic.

The director told me to "take the rhythm properly". Morning Musume. He values ​​16 beats very much, and Juice = Juice didn't neglect the rhythm, but he focused on conveying the lyrics. But if I improve my rhythm, I think I can get cooler, so I'd like to do my best.

――Family-themed "Familia" is like Captain Tomoko Kanazawa's graduation song, but it's a song that was made before.

I think it's fateful. Tomoko-chan has been rehearsing many times, and it has become a song that we want to cherish. It seems that more and more memories will be added in the future.

 

There was a person who always supported me when I chased my dreams
――Are there any goals for the nine Juice = Juice from now on?

I'm talking with the members, "I want to do a solo tour." Previously, Juice = Juice did a national tour and a world tour, and there was a feeling of the members being addicted to it. I would like to spend more time with the current members and deepen their relationships.

――Are there any things you want to do individually?

Even if I had something I wanted to do, I started thinking "I'ts not from now ...". If I could only challenge when I was younger, I had this thinking. However, when I heard the story that "it's not too late to learn, no matter how old you are," that's true. What I was interested in is that I will try it once.

――What are you going to do?

There are so many things, such as musical instruments, English, and basic talk, that I don't know where to start (laughs). I will squeeze it and squeeze it, starting with the one that has a connection.

――Akari is only 22 years old and is in the same generation as the people who are trying to make their dreams come true while working part-time. In your career as an idol, do you think it's important to make your dreams come true?

I have no dream that can be realized by myself. While thanking the people around me, when I pursued what I wanted to do, there were people who would definitely support me. If you find a dream, don't think it's too late, but keep chasing after it.

Ruru blogged about spending time with Nanami (Yanagawa, her gen-mate) who celebrated her 20th birthday today. Ruru revealed that she has been keeping in touch with Nanami ever since her graduation. Nanami apparently attended Tomoko's graduation concert and shed lots of tears during the ceremony. Its really nice to see that the bonds among J=J members endures even after a member departs from the group...it really is a testament to the great leadership set in foundation by Yuka in establishing a "FAMILY culture" in her group and the close and amazing support the seniors lovingly extended with warmth to the succeeding generations.  :)

Why do the Kenshusei trainees like to select Juice=Juice members when they were asked to pick their duet partners for the ONE PLUS ONE series?

First, Ocha Norma’s Ensign Yonemura picked Commander Miyamoto (an ex-JJ officer) to sing MI DA RA Matenrou:

Then, Trainee Corporal Uemura Hasumi chose J=J’s new Captain as her duet partner for Are Kore Shitai:

Now, we have Trainee Corporal Ishiyama Sakura choosing J=J’s Executive officer Inaba Manaka as her duet partner to sing Kindan Shoujo (another J=J song)

Despite the seeming joyful expression, she looked broken to me (I dunno...thats just my thoughts). I really do hope she finds happiness in something that makes her truly happy. BTW, my guess as to who actually filmed her: Kanazawa Tomoko, her best friend.

Meanwhile. at the 6th Fleet Headquarters, visiting BEYO battle group flag officer Vice Admiral Miyazaki took the rare opportunity to do what she enjoyed doing when she used to command J=J: Bully Karin-chan, despite the fact that the younger is now already a veteran Senior Officer in the eyes of most of the Hello kouhais!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61ffmTqnhRc

Next year will be the 10th Anniversary of this Special Forces unit. I am very sure the Hello Fleet top brass will be inviting back all graduated members to the Familia house to celebrate their 1st Decade as a special warfare group, even to perform with the active members currently led by Capt Uemura. But all this aside, what I really want to see for the 10th Anniversary is the Orimen Five including Sayuki performing together for old time sake. With the way she left the Fleet, she deserve at least this because like it or not, she IS a pillar of early J=J era and an integral part of their legacy.


Ichika teaches her senior officers some English words:    :lol:

Sergeant Ebata has allowed herself to be influenced by her good friend Sergeant Yofu Runo. Somehow she thinks its better for the 6th Gen Sunflower Trio to quarrel once in a while because her, Ichika and Risa have been getting along too well with each other, there are no conflicts between the three. Perhaps she is inspired by the story of the fake quarrel Runo, Marin and Yuumi had between themselves to deceive Yagi Shiori who tried so helplessly to mediate that she ended up crying later on when she found out she had been deceived. (this whole thing was masterminded by Runo)


http://c-ute.doorblog.jp/archives/56561015.html (http://c-ute.doorblog.jp/archives/56561015.html)

Or perhaps, she wasn't around when Ichika and Risa engaged in hand to hand combat just before a mission (of which, surprisingly, the younger one won):

Damn. Irietty sure is strong!!

CORPORAL Wakana Matsumoto clutched her yellow vest tightly as she braved the air jet wash of the C2 Greyhound's propellers that has just landed aboard the ANGERME. Getting to the disembarking ramp at the rear side of the plane, Wakana waited as she prepared to welcome her ship's surprise arrival.

When the ramp opened, she was surprised to see CAPTAIN Uemura Akari, Commanding Officer of Juice=Juice stepped out on to the ramp wearing her sunglasses. Even more surprising was the senior officer carried just a backpack with her as her only luggage.

Wakana then promptly saluted Akari.

"Welcome aboard The Angerme, Ma'am!"

As she was always prone to do especially among her juniors, the good-natured Captain flashed a disarming, sweet smile at Wakana which may've well conveyed her unspoken word of "Kawaiii!!"

"Good to see you again, Wakana!" Akari removed her sunglasses as she returned the younger's salute.

"Uhhmmm...may I take your luggage, Captain? Is this really all?" Corporal Matsumoto muttered nervously.

Akari smiled again as she handed the backpack to the Corporal.

The older officer then put her left arm around Wakana's shoulder as they both started walking towards the control island. "I'm afraid thats it, Corporal. We Special Forces always travel light"

Capt Miyamoto Karin: Uemu, can I borrow your XO for a few days?

Capt Uemura Akari: No, Rinka! I'm not letting you wear her out with your M-Line shenanigans especially when we've got a live mission lined up in a few days.


A few moments later....the 1st and 2nd Generation Trident Academy graduates (elite school for special forces operator-pilots) was found pushing the envelope singing Gabarenaiyo, a song I'm sure we would've wished we heard Karin sing had she remained in Special Warfare. LCDR Danbara's loyalty may well be to her CO, but Miyamoto-san will always have a special place in her heart. You can tell from this performance how beautiful this duet was and how well their voices blended (even more so now than when Karin was still in J=J)...We've all known Ruru has grown so phenomenally ever since Sayuki, Tomoko, Manaka and Karin's departure, but it's just like simply singing with Miyamoto-san causes her to level up even more. I do hope in the same way, Ruru will have the same effect on her junior officers/members so the next generation will similarly feel the pressure to level up.

Riai's feelings were hurt when Ichika told the other members that she liked to marry them...all of them except Riai (and Kin-chan apparently) :

When Ichika heard about this, she replied in her blog saying she will like to marry Riai in the afterlife:

C'mon Ichikashi!! Which girl wouldn't wanna be in the arms of Matsunaga-san. Ohhh....:

Corporal Endo reported that Ichika gave her a welcome gift of an ADIRA member colour mint-green T-shirt to commemorate her qualification into Special Warfare:

After which, SSG Arisawa was lounging around the ready room of Hakodate Air Base, Hokkaido, with 2nd LT Matsunaga when their CO suddenly called them in Kansai dialect.

CAPT UEMURA: Hey, you two!! You wanna hitch a fast flight back to Osaka?

ARISAWA & MATSUNAGA: Sure thing, skipper!

CAPT UEMURA: Grab yourselves a flightsuit from the pilots locker room. Meet me at the tarmac at 1100hrs for preflight.

2LT MATSUNAGA: Flight suit? Wait, Captain... I thought we'll be taking an Air Force transport.

CAPT UEMURA: You guys are in luck, Riai. The tower just told me they have a C130 with cargo loaded up scheduled to depart for Kansai Naval Air Station, but both pilots were down with Corona.

2LT MATSUNAGA: So, you're gonna be flying the plane?!

CAPT UEMURA: Of cos I am, you're forgetting you're talking to one of the few Special operators with a sterling aviator qualification...and you Lieutenant, will be my co-pilot. Ichika, you'll be at the back watching the cargo.

ARISAWA: Such a big plane for a flight with only 3 people.

As the picture below shows, Riai was dreading the moment she would jointly take the helm of a plane. She had no qualms jumping off one, but even after her pilot training, she felt queasy just thinking about being in the cockpit.

CAPT UEMURA: Hakodate control, this is Arrow232, requesting clearance for Departure.

Akari: Riai, where are my 2 Lieutenant-Commanders? I've been looking for them all day and they weren't answering my messages.

Riai: Sorry, captain. I thought you knew. Danbara-san and Inoue-san are currently out on a simulation mission with Captain Miyamoto.

Akari: Sim? Not again with the M-Line! What mission is it this time?

Riai [grinning]: Future Smile

Akari: For goodness sake, Rinka if you keep on wanting to undertake special missions, you should'nt have left Special Warfare in the first place.

During TIF 2022, JUICE performed with only 6 members, with Rei and Yume out of commission due to Covid.

Still, that doesnt stop Riai from expressing how much she missed being together with Yume on their missions:

During the Hokkaido mission, Riai even made two octopus origami, one in pink and one in white, and pin it on her costume to tell the fans that LCDR Inoue and LT Kudo is still with them in spirit during their performance. When Future Smile was performed and the YumeRiai part came up, she held up the pink tako origami to remember Yume's part with her. When the MC part came, Riai asked the fans to light up their white and pink glowsticks which the fans are eager to comply. You can feel how tight this group is, and how deep Riai's love for J=J and the Family:

I can't believe this happened at TIF!! they played the wrong song!

But being a Special Forces unit, I guess JUICE has been well-trained to handle unexpected situations during even the most stressful missions:

LCDR Danbara took some time off her team's XO duties to reunite with other senior officers of the Composite Warfare Group (Fleet Dance Team) under the command of Captain Ishida Ayumi:

Sunset Summer Fever (what a chill song for a dance number)

Sad news folks... 2LT Matsunaga and SSG Irie were both infected with Covid. They will be away from Team missions in order to recuperate and recover. Wish Riai and Risa all the best and rest well.

CAPT Uemura posted an insta live with her XO to celebrate J=J's 9th anniversary since their formation:

Team Photos to celebrate the day, though Riai and Risachi could only "join in" via remotely  :lol:

Karin commemorates the event too by posting many old photos of her and Aarii when they were just 14 year old young Corporals:

In the latest OMAKE FLEET CHANNEL, newbies SGT Ishiyama and CPL Endo attended a course to familiarize themselves with their unit's senior officers profiles, strengths and the culture of the Team as a whole. The instructors were CO, CAPT Uemura and she was assisted ably by XO, Lieutenant-Commander Danbara:


Part 1: Profiles of Captain, XO, & Senior Officers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qBy4HTuzak


Part 2: Profiles of Specialists:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BReUiuhd2c


Some of the points noted in their discussions:

1. Though the Team was led pretty freely/loose reign by their new CO in a setting of a cordial and warm atmosphere, YumeRiai have acted as the group's Middle Managers and took it upon themselves to ensure there is order and hierarchy between their junior members and Senior Commanders are maintained. Capt Uemura have noted that since Risa have said "I will always obey Uemura-san's words", she hereby declare that "WHAT CAPTAIN UEMURA SAYS (ie. HER ORDERS) ARE ABSOLUTE!  Hail the new Captain!! Will we see a tyrant Uemuu later on, though?   :P

2. They have unanimously agreed to elect Risa Irie as the suitable 3rd successor of the Azakawa character within the Team, succeding predecessors VADM Miyazaki (the first) and CMDR Inaba (the second):

3. Sakura pointed out that she was confused on how to interact and talk with Ichika since she is technically her junior in the team even though they were in the same class intake in the KSS Academy. LCDR Danbara replied that she felt the same awkwardness too when ReiRei joined Special Warfare after MARSOC unit Kobushi was disbanded. The XO assured Sakura that it matters little because every member in JJ is appreciated equally despite the perceived hierarchy.
