obviously less scandals would be good for H!P
there's a saying: even bad publicity is good publicity. i don't believe it one bit.
letting mari lead a group or something would be nice (ZYX wasn't too bad...). she was always popular, and now that she's single again...
more random mixed groups. (kinda related to the last point). Aa! (anyone remember them?) was great. ZYX was great. how can they involve the elder members more? mix them up with the kids and make some new sound. revive old groups like tanpopo and puccimoni. bring minimoni back. H!P concerts mix up the members and make them sing these oldschool songs anyway, why not make them legit?
less crappy PVs. stop with the dancing-focused pvs... they're kinda boring (whether or not the song is good). go back to the wacky randomness of Ayaya's Momoiro Kataomoi (which used the PV to tell a story).
stop with the version 2... i don't want to buy a cd which had two or three songs from the last album, only with lyrics slightly changed.
Tsunku is currently producing Tokito Ami (i think) the girl who sings the opening and closing themes to School Rumble 2nd Semester. She couldn't have joined H!P? how do you make H!P better? Get the H!P girls involved with things like this. Having H!P members in random dramas was ok. Getting Yossie and Koharu in an anime is a step in the right direction.
Get the less popular groups in the spotlight. They're not as popular as momusu.. but why? because they don't do anything and no one's writing them new songs.
use members' strengths: risa.. not a great singer, but i love her the most. why? she's got an awesome personality and she's hilarious. she can talk for hours. send her to random music talk shows. ("first, we go outside into the next building...")
Makochan was a great host during the Hello Pro News hour. why is she leaving? her spotlight's been moved to eri. she gets no love.
takahashi is a strong singer. she gets all the lines. but she's also incredibly boring. remember that utaban episode with HP allstars? all she had to say was that she collected 500 yen coins. wow. sing good, but talk obviously not her strong point.
sayumi. i love her to death but the super cute thing gets tiring quick. pick up one or two more traits to embrace. watching new members change as they grow older is a major draw.
eri has definately changed from when she first joined. i don't like her at all, but she's definately gotten more outgoing and that's good.
yup... that's it for now... i'm sure i'll have more gripes in the future.
ahh one more thing. vary music styles more. sheki dol was awesome. the music was unfortunately not right for the time, but it would definatly work now. girlie rock is more appreciated now.
i acutally had another one but i kinda forgot it while trying to remember sheki dol...
now i remember. stop with the lip synching (berryz, minimoni, shuffle groups, c-ute, etc). you're fooling no one. these girls are supposed to be singers/dancers. let them actually sing and dance. we can tell when you mic them. Tomiko Van is a terrible Live Singer, but people went to Do as Infinity concerts anyway to see them live. if a girl can't sing and dance at the same time, then let her stand still and sing while every once else dances.
