So basically they made an announcement for an announcement. :P But yes, we have a set date for all this mystery and madness to end! Who will be in? Who will we rage about winning/losing? Only two weeks of wild speculation, crazy rumors, and wishful thinking left!!!1!

Still crossing fingers that Hirona Ooura did not decide against being an idol, but secretly passed the MM'14 audition. T_T

They could at least allow us a glimpse of the candidates as they did on past auditions. It would give us something to hang onto until the big day and make the girls more endearing.
I would personally miss having a chance to judge the finalists before we know who made the cut...

EDIT: It's weird but, the older I get the longer two weeks seem to me  :panic:

From left to right: Ogata, Nonaka, Akanechin, Maria



I'm just going to start calling Maria Mario or Marioa because I keep typing her as such. Shame will not be known

These first pics aren't very flattering; I know for a fact that Akane at least can look at lot better than this haha

Akane; Ogata

Maria; Nonaka

Calling the newbies by last name because I haven't adapted a nickname to them yet; I know Tsunku had some suggestions up, but he's a weirdo, so...

I'm hoping that tomorrow's Hello! Station is like a 2 hour special that's just the training camp and MM'14 as the MC checking in every now and then.

I wonder if they'll bring them to the NY concert. Akane was learning English and Miki (I refuse to call her Mikitty, there is only one true Mikitty) is fluent so they might be helpful during the handshake event. Plus it's almost Miki's birthday, I want to give her something :D

Morning Musume '14 introduces 4 new members!
September 30, 2014


On September 30, 10-member idol group Morning Musume '14 kicked off their fall tour 'Concert Tour Aki GIVE ME MORE LOVE ~Michishige Sayumi Sotsugyo Kinen Special~' at Nippon Budokan where 4 new members were introduced for the first time.

The 4 members who have been chosen among 8,000 applicants are Ogata Haruna (15) from Osaka, Nonaka Miki (14) from Shizuoka, Makino Maria (13) from Aichi, and Haga Akane (12) from Nagano. They are the first new members in 2 years since Oda Sakura, the 11th generation member, joined the group.

When the leader Michishige Sayumi introduced them on the stage, the 10,000 audience members welcomed them with loud cheers.

Both Makino and Haga were selected from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei.  Makino was one of the finalists of the 11th generation member audition, but she could not make it. So, she acquired lessons as a part of Kenshuusei for the past 2 years. Haga, who has great calligraphy skills, is also acknowledged among fans as a Kenshuusei.

Ogata is good at figure skating as she has been taking lessons since she was 5, and Nonaka can speak English fluently as she used to live in Alabama and Illinois because of her father's business. When she introduced herself in English, Michishige was amazed and said, "You are great, but all I understood was 'Morning Musume' and 'Thank you'!"

It was also the first time the current members met the new members. Sayashi Riho said, "They seem to have plenty of guts even though this is their first stage. I wonder who would come out as the center...I'm not feeling nervous, but I need to do my best not to lose to them." Michishige also commented, "All 4 of them are really pretty, and they are my type of girls. It's too bad I am graduating, but I am looking forward to seeing how Morning Musume would grow from now on."

There was also a segment in which Michishige read a letter from Tsunku♂, the producer who could not visit the concert, to the new members.

These 12th generation members will continue joining the tour to greet the audience and will also hold handshake events. They, then, will begin their activities as the members of Morning Musume '15, starting the new year.

The leader Michishige will be graduating from the group after the final stage of this tour at Yokohama Arena on November 26.

My first thought when I saw the results... 8)


My second thought: Are they seriously gonna try to reuse the "Mikitty" nickname for someone else in H!P??? Good luck with that! :lol:

But damn, drafting someone with clear English skills, you gotta wonder how much stock management is putting into international appeal now. So maybe there actually is room for a new Mikitty? Her name also reminds me of a Digimon Tamers character.

Oh yeah, and the other two...they look cute. :P

I think it's interesting how none of these girls were on the list of rumored finalists; either someone's predictions/wishful thinking was way off, or sources intentionally fed (or were fed) misleading info to mess with all of us. It still would've been nice to see a biracial girl make it in, and I was kind of hoping for a taller girl for more visual balance lulz, but, as I've said before, previous audition results have taught me to put trust in Tsunku and his people that they made the right picks for the long run.

Also: I'm 99% sure we won't be seeing any of them in New York. It's way too soon, and they're not supposed to be officially part of the group until Sayu leaves and the new year comes around.

Congrats to the winners! Make us proud!
