Catching up, I noticed that as a part of her plan to dominate Hello! Project in the future, Natsume is straightening her teeth.






The fangs are cute, but I'd say it's a good idea in the long term, for sure.

Here's Natsume grabbing a number that signifies how many cuteness points she gets out of 10.

Riai's my second fave kenshuusei so good times... perhaps in the near future, coming to a Morning Musume near you? :shocked:

Natsume has her visuals and seems like an alright performer (tho not vocal-wise I think lol), even if she's not winning these tests (actually I think she might have won something in an earlier test, can't remember now) so I'm sure she'll end up in a group eventually haha.

At this point I need Natsume to debut in ANY group just so I'll have a dedicated thread to post her stuff in. :lol:







Here's hoping.

Group shot from the test day.

The profiles have been updated on the site, there's a trick to get bigger noggin photos, here they are (click for bigger).






There's also new full figure shots you can see on the site, here's a randomly selected girl as an example.

Approx 24h from now (Fri 9pm JST, broadcast on youtube), one (or more) of the girls in the previous post will join Juice=Juice!

Looking at the preview (2:50~), looks like medium/shoulder-length hair, so there's plenty of options, also, haircut is possible etc etc.

I think it's quite possible (maybe even likely) that this girl is Riai, but of course it's impossible to tell. That would probably mean they found some talented girls in the Morning Musume auditions.

A lot of options, we'll find out soon!

Congrats to top performers Yume and Riai for making it into Juice=Juice!

A wota report from today's KSS event thang (translation by mal):


Riai: "When we were at the train station some foreigners came up to ask stuff and I was like what are you saying??? But Natsume was able to answer properly"

Natsume: "They were asking about directions so I gave it to them, but Riai was just like "What? What?" "

Araken (MC): "So is English your specialty?"

Natsume: "I've been learning since I was 3"

:lol:

I forget if this has come up before or if there's any footage of her speaking english anywhere (I sure don't remember any), but it does say in her official Q&A that her favorite school subject is "foreign languages". So probably a legit report lol.

Not to get my hopes up but she might make a great sidekick for Miki... :P

Some massive scans of the photoshoot Natsume Nakayama & Rin Hashisako did for Up to Boy. Did some crops of the collage as well. Cuties.






Rest of the pics in lesser quality, if I find these in UHQ I'll post them.
