marimari memorial cup (2023/07/30 ....TBD indefinitely)
« on: July 30, 2023, 12:58:05 PM »
Every July 30th we pour a little liquor and pay respects to our homie marimari  aka Kyle Bouvier. SEVENTEEN years ago we lost our fellow Hello! Project fanboy...

His selfless acts and being an extremely positive nice guy, doesn't even begin to describe what he meant to us. One of the greatest :jphip: has ever seen. Check out the Classic Threads Museum for a taste of his impact. Kyle had contributed so much to the Hello! Project fandom by sharing many materials at all the sites. He was a regular in the IRC and took part in online games like Pangya. When we learned that throughout his life, he was confined to a wheelchair due to muscular dystrophy, it made us respect him even more. To overcome those odds, to be with us HiPsters.

In honour his memory we played the game marimari loved so much, something we call:

Unfortunately, Pangya servers are hard to come by and we had TONS of trouble the past few years....I kind of lost hope of getting the gang back together but that is my fault with not being present even at JPHiP. Thus the tourney has been postponed indefinitely, maybe we can do something else in the place of Pangya who knows. I am open to suggestions.

:hipheart: will donate $100 CAD in honour of marimari's family charity of choice - Make a Wish Foundation (

The intention is to raise awareness to kids like marimari who despite all odds, live their dreams and through charities like this get to experience great moments in their life.

To have marimari part of this community - and the Hello! Project fandom as a whole - really special. So as you go idolize that Hello! Project artists by digging through all that H!P multimedia, he is one of the ones who started it all.

Relive those marimari Tourney memories and please take the time to donate.

Learn more about Kyle here: :rockon:

His influence and generosity speaks more than just sharing content, it's being there in the chat and throwing in the random good line or GIF. Dig up those IRC chats and no matter what we look like or talk like or smell like, deep down we are all fuckin fans of the music and idols we love.

HE is the reason why we keep :hipheart: going. To keep the memories of our fallen brothers and sisters alive, to build on the relationships that we have here - daigong so thankful to have met such great people - and to foster a new generation off JPHiPSTAZ to keep the POSITIVE PINK MOVEMENT GOING :jphip:

We will also rerun the show we did in tribute of Kyle shortly after he passed TONIGHT July 30 RIGHT NOW!!! Marathon ALL WEEK!! Pour out a little liquor for our homie!

The marimari memorial show hosted by Hello! Ongaku Radio, the DJs from Ongaku! Project back in 2006 were Rei-chan, Tris-chan, suki* and the lovely kuno_thunder ONLY on JPHiP Radio

And even as I cut and paste last years thread, marimari will forever live on in our hearts and not just lipservice. The golf, the radio, the great times, let's take a listen....

SUCKS. we can't get a round going but there will always be the memories. And I appreciated everyone coming together. This I can say that. So in honour of that, I make this post. There's gotta be a way. Slack. Ping. pikapikapika. JTRI....kuro. Flyp even. mode outta nowhere. It was pure and sweet. Guys coming together to pour a little liquor. It's why I keep JPH!P going so that these memories have a place in this world. JPH!P FOLYFE.
