So there's this new H!P unit consisting of H!P kids who weren't picked to Berryz Kobo. They're guests on Nacchi's current concert tour, along with Kei. Here are some screencaps, probably from a DVD Magazine:



No idea yet what exactly they do in the concert or any info on releases. Maybe they'll be just backdancers. :lol: Either way, let's discuss.

The members (as in the pic above):
Airi Suzuki, Saki Nakajima
Megumi Murakami, Mai Hagiwara
Chisato Okai, Maimi Yajima
Erika Umeda

Oh yeah, some info on the girls in age order (I don't know a lot, but oh well):

Mai Hagiwara
BD: February 7th 1996
Info: A Minimoni movie appearance, some backdancing and a musical with Megumi Murakami (I'm not sure if it had other H!P kids, too). Mai seems to be mostly known for sharing a name with a JAV star. Heh.

Chisato Okai
BD: June 21st 1994
Info: Chisato appeared in Koinu dan no monogatari movie. Besides that she's done some backdancing in performances. And... Stuff.

Airi Suzuki
BD: April 12th 1994
Info: Airi was in a one-time unit called Aa! and sang in a H!P All Stars c/w song. She was in Minimoni the movie, as well. She seems to be the most well known non-Berryz H!P kid.

Saki Nakajima
BD: February 5th 1994
Info: Saki was the girl who called Rika her idol in Utaban's H!P All Stars episode. She's done some background dancing and briefly appeared in Koinu dan no monogatari movie.

Megumi Murakami
BD: June 6th 1992
Info: She was in ZYX, appeared in Maki's Yokohama shinkirou PV, sang in a c/w to the H!P All Stars single and will be in the Sexy otona jan shuffle group this summer. She's also been in a musical, but I don't know details about that. She also had a small role in Koinu dan no monogatari.

Maimi Yajima
BD: February 7th 1992
Info: Maimi's the girl who always does well at H!P Sports Festival. She was in ZYX and had a small role in Koinu dan no monogatari movie.

Erika Umeda
BD: May 24th 1991
Info: Like Megumi and Maimi, Erika was in ZYX and appeared in Koinu dan no monogatari.


The ages of the girls:

Mai Hagiwara - 9
Chisato Okai - 10 (turns 11 later this month)
Airi Suzuki - 11
Saki Nakajima - 11
Megumi Murakami - 13
Maimi Yajima - 13
Erika Umeda - 14

And the height order :lol: :

Mai had also a big role in Liliput Kingdom. It was about animated mini-sized Momusu girls sent to the human world. Mai was soooo super cute in it! I think Airi appeared also... And some others too but don't remember who. And maybe more, I've watched only 2 volumes.

They are all so cute! <3 Their name fits them.

Aww, I dont want any HP kids war : (.
I think they probably fight already inside Berryz because some girls get to sing the whole song, and now they want to add some cuteness competition?

Ah well, if this is temporal I dont mind, just remove Umeda and we got the cutest shuffle ever.

I never liked Berryz or H!P Kids for that matter. Until recently Berryz have begun to grow on me and have been becoming more popular.

It's good that the other H!P Kids are getting a chance to shine in °C-ute, but we don't need another Berryz :(. I'd be great of Tsunku did something different with them, maybe more hip-hop ish like Aa! and XYZ (seeins as the kids have appeared in these units).

We'll have to wait & see and hope it's nothing too childish :lol:.

Mai looks like that girl who played Matilda.

Or maybe I just think that because of the ribbons.

I'm surprised Sayumi isn't the leader.  Isn't she the cutest thing on earth?

Supposedly C-ute isn't actually a new group, Tsunku just got tired of calling the other Hello! Project Kids by that name.  Which is true, because if you think about it, Berryz is included under the Hello! Project Kids name, so calling the other girls by another name is a way of correctly differentiating them.

Sayu was never a part of H!P Kids, which is where all of the members of this group come from.  And remember, in many parts of Asia leadership is often/largely based on age and seniority.  That's the reason why Saki is the leader of BERRYZ, and why Erika will lead this group.

On the other hand when they have an own name, they could have their own songs and stuff. But I agree that Tsunku probably just wanted to get rid of "Kids"-name.

As I said on the FIRST page of this thread, Sayu was never a part of H!P kids.  All of the members of C-ute come from H!P kids.  Because Sayu was never a part of H!P kids, she CANNOT be their leader.  Just because their name is "C-ute" doesn't automatically mean that MM's self-declared "member in charge of cuteness" will be in it.  The oldest member of C-ute is Erika, and therefore she will automatically be made leader.

Download a concert rip of Natsumi Abe, Kei Yasuda & °C-ute Concert HERE!

The kids sing live and they do it well. We can even hear little Nakajima sing a line in Furusato (at least I strongly think it's her cause she's the only one of the little ones singing in it) and she's fine. :)
