I'm still looking forward to how it'll play out, because apparently they'll be joined by Kei Yasuda (http://www.up-front-agency.co.jp/artist/yasuda-kei/schedule.php)...naturally if it was a bunch of the OGs showing up I'd worry for the current group, but since it's just her it could very well be interesting based on her own history with the show, and it's possible that she's there to help the group garner more respect from Ishibashi and Nakai (I can't think of anyone better for such a task).

I was doing some shop @ Ueno's H!P shop this morning ... and it seems that Airi & Chisato will be there for the 05-14 ...  :shocked

As I'm a fuckin' gaijin I didn't understand anything to the poster announcement but I try to asked the staff and the woman kinda confirm this... I guess it's about 06h30 pm...

I'm now going totally mad because it's my two favorite °C-ute members... and one of my top three... (god, Chisatooooo).
 It would fuckin' be PERFECT as I saw Momusu & BK & S/mileage & Mano last year... and seeing BK again at the 5-15 concert... Chisa & Airi were the one missing...  :panic:

If anyone can confirm this event... ?

Anyway, I will spend all the 5-14 afternoon there...  :lol:

Live report here as usual... and for the BK concert too, of course...  8)

Post by: Slack on May 25, 2010, 02:18:22 AM
Luckily, there are only 3 blu-ray region codes.
If you live in the Americas or southeast Asia, you're in luck because Japan is included in the same region code.
If you're anywhere else, which includes Europe, you're SOL.

I was a little worried myself that I'd need to buy a new player, but then I remembered that the blu-ray regions work differently and looked it up on wiki.
Kind of glad I put off ordering Mobekimasu for this long. :)
Now all I need is someone to take this Shuffle Date DVD off my hands!

Sengoku Minami has finished her Egg training, will be in a play w/ Nocchi and starring Yuikaori.
Source:Hello! Project Fanclub News (http://www.up-fc.jp/helloproject/news_Info.php?id=1716)

Title of the play is "Q -Anata wa Daare?-"
Says the play is about two girls (Yuikaori) in a hotel during a blackout.
Runs next year from 3/30 - 4/6.

The way they refer to the Eggs gives me a little hope that it's a sign that they're still carrying on.
Interesting how it doesn't say she's graduating from H!P or anything.

Here's some of the biggest news in a long while:

Discussion here: [NEWS] Ai Takahashi to Graduate Morning Musume >:|  (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=27874.0)

Quote
Notice Regarding Morning Musume Takahashi Ai Graduation

During January 9th's concert at Nakano Sun Plaza, 5th generation member Takahashi Ai announced that she will graduate from Morning Musume and Hello! Project during this autumn's Morning Musume tour.

Around the time of 6th generation member Kamei Eri's request to graduate to focus on the treatment of her physical condition, I gave Takahashi Ai the advice, "It would be good to think in advance about the timing of your graduation and your future plans."

It will be 10 years since the 5th generation entered Morning Musume.
Takahashi Ai will have spent 3 years, 7 months as the 6th leader of the group.
This makes Takahashi Ai the longest-enrolled member as well as longest-serving leader of Morning Musume.
Looking back, I feel that she has truly performed admirably in her long duties.

(In fact among the other graduated members and former leaders, she is the probably the first that comes to mind... but I digress.)

Therefore, after discussing the matter with her, considering her activities afterward, and this month's earlier announcements, it was decided to announce her graduation during Morning Musume's fall tour.

Though it has been not more than half a year since I last advised her, from now until the time the 9th generation members become familiar with Morning Musume's songs, learn their dances, and become comfortable in their roles as members, it appears much will be expected of their reliable leader.

Please cherish her remaining time in Morning Musume!

After Takahashi Ai's graduation, she will continue to be involved in music and theater activities, the details of which will be gradually announced.

Thus after Takahashi Ai's graduation, fellow 5th generation member Niigaki Risa will inherit the role of leader, as well as the title of longest-enrolled member.



January 9, 2011
Morning Musume Producer

Quote
Takahashi Ai's comment:

I, Takahashi Ai, will graduate from Morning Musume as well as Hello! Project during this year's Morning Musume fall concert tour.
When the graduations of Kamei Eri, Junjun, and Linlin were decided, Tsunku-san said to me, "Takahashi, the timing of your own graduation is all up to you!"
So I considered it.

Since this August will mark the 10th year since I entered Morning Musume and right afterward would be Morning Musume's fall tour, I thought it would be nice to graduate then.

Even though I will graduate in around 9 months, until then I will do my best as leader to turn this re-formed Morning Musume into a reliable unit.

In order to give the just-joined 9th generation members a sense of love and affection, I feel that there are many things I would like to tell them, so everyone please rest assured.

Notice regarding Kitahara Sayaka, Satou Ayano, Sekine Azusa, and Arai Manami:

At this time, Kitahara Sayaka, Satou Ayano, Sekine Azusa, and Arai Manami have completed their Hello! Project Egg training.

Kitahara Sayaka has been attached to TaitoPro company.*
Announcements on her future activities will be made as soon as they are known.

Regarding Satou Ayano, Sekine Azusa, and Arai Manami, it has been decided that they will be participating in an event and TV show.

*K-POP Dance Cover Event "DREAM ON! vol. 2"
Taking place on March 31 at Shibuya O-EAST, participating as UFZS. (Furukawa Konatsu, Mori Saki, Satou Ayano, Sekine Azusa, and Arai Manami)
Details here (http://jisin.jp/)

*Regular TV Show
"Up-Front Girls" (temporary title) starting April 2 on SkyPerfect TV.
Featuring Sengoku Minami, Furukawa Konatsu, Mori Saki, Satou Ayano, Sekine Azusa, and Arai Manami.
Details here (http://pigoo.jp/)

Thank you for your continued support.

*I believe this is the branch of UFG that handled T-Pistonz+KMC, or may be Up-Front Style/Happy Style, judging from the company website.

It's looking more and more like the current Egg roster is only the girls who were on stage at this year's Winter H!P Concerts.

Normally I would consider this more of a rumor than actual news.
However, this screenshot appeared today, presumably from this week's Bijo Gaku:
(http://i51.tinypic.com/vh9ruf.jpg)
"With this episode, 'Bijo Gaku' has ended. Thank you very much for your support."
I'm pretty sure Bijo Gaku airs on Tuesdays in some areas, so I'm fairly certain this is the real thing.
It makes sense since Bijo Gaku has been running for one year now.

So with this corroborating evidence, it looks like we're getting a new show next month!
Hope it's something like the old-school Hello! Morning!

I'd heard some news about Maeda Irori (Ex-H!P Egg) trying out for another idol group.
Now it turns out it's true:

OK it's official, Irorin is out of H!P.

She's currently trying out for the 5th generation of AKBN 0 (http://www.akbn.tv/index.html), a B-list idol group with "no budget".
I say "trying out", because apparently she doesn't get in unless her Yahoo Auction gets over 50,000 yen.
AKBN 0 5期最終オーディション前田彩里 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmRdVH3KIRQ#)

Actually, I just checked her Yahoo Auction, and only two days after posting she already has 50,499 yen on 44 bids:
(http://i56.tinypic.com/2s9etfs.jpg)
Looks like she's in!

Still, I don't know whether to be happy or sad about this turn of events.


Here's some recent pics from the auction posting:

Egg News

Notice regarding Saho Akari:

At this time, Saho Akari has completed her Hello! Project Egg training.

Announcements on her future activities will be made as soon as they are known.

I was wondering why I'd been seeing pictures of H!P Eggs without Akari.
Now the reason is obvious.

It's actually good news they announced it.
When Eggs drop out of Up Front altogether, they usually do so without any fanfare.

For now she's seems to be in the same ex-Egg limbo as Saaya.
They gotta debut this girl! She's too good not to do something with!

Double post because this didn't seem like it fit with Kanna's news.

Turns out we haven't finished yet with the new Egg additions!

The Official H!P Site (http://www.helloproject.com/event/1106201200_live_egg.html) says there's going to be another Egg event on Sept. 11.
It says 14 Eggs are participating, and there are specifically 3 names that haven't been mentioned anywhere else yet:
大塚愛菜、茂木美奈実、小川麗奈

That's right, the first two names are Ootsuka Aina and Mogi Minami!
(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip13833.jpg)

That means ALL the 9th gen finalists are in Hello! Project now!


Also, I've heard some rumors about the third girl, Ogawa Rena (Reina?) POSSIBLY being the finalist that was supposedly kicked from the auditions for blogging about it.
I don't know how much stock to place in this one though, because it's pure speculation.

It says the August issue of B.L.T. says that もえxこん ("Moe x Kon") will be airing as a 10-15 minute show every day Mon-Sun at varying times from 2-3.
"Every day KonKon"

I'm assuming the ending time for 7/20 is a typo and should be 3:05 instead of 3:50.
The "Moe" of the title is supposedly fellow new announcer Ueda Moeko (植田 萌子):
(http://i55.tinypic.com/142d7ki.jpg)

You may remember her from other shows with the TV Tokyo new announcers as the cute girl who sat next to Konkon in the front row.

Cross-posted from her thread:
Saki Ogawa to leave S/mileage and Hello! Project
http://s-mileage.jp/info/2945 (http://s-mileage.jp/info/2945)

It's been announced on the S/mileage website that this weekend's "Uchouten Love" release event on the 27th will be the final appearance for Ogawa as a S/mileage member. Both my limited translation skills and Google translate fail me at the moment, but she apologizes for the last-minute announcement and thanks everyone for supporting her.

EDIT: Translation courtesy of Takamaruyo.net

Thank you for always supporting me.

As of August 27th 2011 I, Ogawa Saki, will graduate from S/mileage as well as Hello! Project.

Since our major debut last year in May, I have enjoyed every single day as part of S/mileage.

However, somewhere down in my heart, I felt there was a gap between myself and the S/mileage me. I have talked it over with the staff many times and have been constantly worrying about it, and with everyone working their hardest to move forward and myself still uncertain of things, I decided that it was not in the best interest of S/mileage and I will return to being just a normal girl.

I apologize for the last minute announcement.

While there may be feelings of sadness, S/mileage will always be a group with it’s trademark smile!

I’ll be working my hardest to end with a smile until my last event on 8/27, I know there isn’t a lot of time left but I hope you can support me!

The new members will power up S/mileage after I graduate so I hope you’ll continue to support them.

Thank you very much for all your support up til now.

2011/08/24
S/mileage Ogawa Saki
Sad to see her go.

On the one hand, the suddenness of this announcement and the short time between it and her last event will fuel rumors that this might actually be her getting kicked out for some reason.

On the other hand, the new member auditions and the end of their weekly Ustream show both make more sense now.
Tsunku's comment makes it seem like the new member auditions were decided after Saki asked him to let her leave.
Plus, there's no real way to announce something like this slowly without compromising the group's cohesiveness.
Still, they probably could have made a bigger deal of this if they wanted to.

I'm inclined to take the announcement at face value, since S/mileage, Oha Star, and school are undoubtedly a lot to deal with.
I always felt she was the odd one out a little bit, being the only one who wasn't at least 15 or in Shugo Chara Egg.
It's not unheard of for someone to want to step out of the spotlight in favor of a more normal life.

Here's a screenshot:

It says she's age 14, 157cm tall, from Fukuoka, and a member of that famous group.

If that sounds familiar, it's because it has to be Eripon! (http://bday.jphip.com/info.php?id=313)

Oh D: she's always been one of my favourite members of S/mileage and I used to feel sorry for her that she hadn't been a part of Shugo Chara Egg and LilPri too... but I suppose her Oha Star job made up for being the odd one out in a way...
It'd sad to see her leaving so soon. So I suppose Tsunku probably didn't plan to make them a group with generations like MM until he was faced with the issue of the group becoming a trio so soon... (I suppose it's not so "soon" really but compared to groups that go for years before disbanding and with the small number of members getting even smaller it's not ideal.)


However, it's nice to hear Eripon's getting an extra job~! :P

Sayumi will have a Ustream show every week "Mobekimasutte nani??", Thursdays 10pm... Maybe this isn't news, I dunno haha, it was new to me

The first show is tomorrow starting at 10pm Japan time, with guests Kanyon and Dawa from S/mileage :3
Must be prerecorded since the S/mileage girls are underaged and there's already a picture of them together. XD
Considering the Mobekimasu name, she'll probably have all different H!P girls as guests ^^

Peaberry will consist of Ayaka Wada and Riho Sayashi; DIY (acronym for "Dance in Yourheart") will consist of Maimi Yajima, Chinami Tokunaga, Miyabi Natsuyaki, Saki Nakajima, and Haruna Iikubo.

Post by: rokun on July 20, 2012, 07:41:01 PM
I had such a tough time finding info about this here. XD Here's a translation of the barks article about the 2 new groups:

Quote from: barks.jp
There's a new startup project from Up-Front Group called "SATOYAMA movement". It's been decided that two musical units born from there, "Peaberry", "DIY♡" will appear at the Hello! Project seasonal tour <Hello! Project Tanjou 15shunen Kinen Live 20120 Summer>.

First of all, concerning the SATOYAMA movement. This is to promote the beautiful lifestyle where people meet while reaffirming the value and meaning of the necessary "Satoyama" existence of maintaining a balance of nature and activities done to support peoples' lives. The program "Hello! SATOYAMA Life", currently running on TV Tokyo and BS Japan, is also linked to the larger SATOYAMA movement plan. Hello! Project members make the promotion through actually experiencing things like agriculture and DIY.

And now, the musical units born from that SATOYAMA movement, "Peaberry" and "DIY♡".

Peaberry is a 2-person group formed from S/mileage's Wada Ayaka and Morning Musume's Sayashi Riho. One nut which grows on the coffee tree contains 2 beans (these are coffee beans), but rarely there's just 1 bean which takes on a round shape. This is called a "peaberry". The meaning of this Wada and Sayashi unit, is that the 2 will become one, and they will attain a perfect form as one body.

DIY♡ is a group formed from Berryz Kobo's Tokunaga Chinami and Natsuyaki Miyabi, ℃-ute's Yajima Maimi and Nakajima Saki, as well as Morning Musume's Iikubo Haruna. DIY is an abbrevation for "Do It Yourself", where you make things for your living space with your own hands, but this group is something which comes from the initials for "Dance In Yourheart". It's given the name to express a strong feminine spirit of opening up your own pathways so that there will be dancing inside your heart, and so this is a dancing unit designed to bring out the dance in your heart.

At the <Hello! Project Tanjo 15shunen Kinen Live 2012 Natsu ~Ktkr Natsu no FAN Matsui!~>, Peaberry will display the song they perform, "Cabbage Hakusho". In contrast, at the <Hello! Project Tanjo 15shunen Kinen Live 2012 Natsu ~Wkwk Natsu no FAN Matsuri!~>, DIY♡ will give a performance of "ForeFore ~Forest for Rest~". Now, both songs will be completed to carry the Satoyama world view.

Peaberry and DIY♡ together will not only do activities limited to this concert, but will continue activities from now on as well.

Morning Musume’s Tanaka Reina announces she is diagnosed with duodenal ulcer
On February 9th, Morning Musume’s Tanaka Reina who was absent from a fan club event held on the same day, announced on her blog that she has been diagnosed with duodenal ulcer and esophagitis.

Tanaka explained, “As the pain comes and goes, sometimes it’s not too bad, but sometimes it really really hurts. It’s unpredictable when it would hurt, and when it hurts I might have to be absent just like today…I’m sorry, but I’m fine except for my stomach.”

She then continued, “Originally, I have a weak stomach, so I’ve had many problems, but this time it’s bad. Stress, or this and that, it all effects my stomach. I will try to cure it fast taking medicine everyday.”

As Tanaka was also absent from Morning Musume’s live concert held on the 3rd due to a high fever, she wrote, “I couldn’t see you guys today again…what am I gonna do if it gets painful again, the next event will be the last day of ‘Labo’ (Morning Musume’s fan club event ‘Morning Labo! Ⅳ’) I want to show the performance I practiced at least on the last day. I hope it’ll get better as soon as possible...”

They probably have, though I don't recall them making a formal announcement about it like this before.

I hate to admit, but my first thoughts were of the worst possible scenario...that the group is going to disband.

Going to put this here for now, if only because of the fact that I don't remember them ever making an annoucement that there would be a new Alo-Hello! to begin with. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Really sad news just now: Takamasa Sakurai, writer who has interviewed and gushed about H!P groups for the English-speaking world, died in a train station accident this morning.

http://www.nhk.or.jp/shutoken-news/20151204/4035011.html

I actually saw him in New York last year, right after the Morning Musume concert we were both waiting for the group to come out of the venue; I regretted not talking to him back then, and even moreso now.

Really terrible way to go. RIP, and thank you for all the work you've done for us foreign fans. :cry:

Touched by this gentle soul find peace.

Rest in Peace Sakurai san.

UP-FRONT announces changes to their Youtube programs

Announced on the most recent episode of Hello! Project Station and on the Hello! Project website, UP-FRONT is making a number of changes to their line-up of Youtube programs starting this August.

Both Hello! Project Station and Upcoming will no longer be presented in their 1 hour format. Instead individual segments will be presented on their own. This is to better accommodate actual viewing habits.

Hello! Project Station segments will remain dedicated to H!P videos, performances, behind the scenes,… Upcoming segments also will remain dedicated to recording videos, round table discussions, live videos, and will feature artists from the entire UP-FRONT group.

tiny tiny will retain its original format, but will be published on Friday at 19:00 (JST) going forward.

In addition a new Omake channel has been launched which will feature all kinds of short fun bonus clips.
