Anime Expo® Announces Morning Musume As First Official Guests Of Honor For 2009 Convention In Los Angeles


Nation’s Largest Anime and Manga Convention Welcomes Japan’s Top Female Group from Hello! Project

Anaheim, California and Tokyo, Japan (February 12, 2009) — With excitement beyond belief, Anime Expo® proudly announces the attendance and performance of Japan’s most celebrated and top all-girl music group MORNING MUSUME (also referred to as “Momusu”) to the nation’s largest anime and manga convention held July 2-5, 2009 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. More information can be found on the website www.anime-expo.org.

The MORNING MUSUME (モーニング娘.  Morning Daughter) is a one of a kind all-girl group whose story began in 1997 when Japanese producer TSUNKU♂ held auditions for a female rock vocalist for his band SHARAN Q held on the Japanese TV show ASAYAN.   With the five runner-ups from the contest, Tsunku decided to create an all-girl group that sold 50,000 copies of their indies CD single “Ai no Tane” and debuted as  MORNING MUSUME. They are the lead group of Hello! Project.

MORNING MUSUME’s first single “Morning Coffee” made a huge splash by hitting the #6 position in the Japanese pop charts within its first week of release.  In August of 1998, MORNING MUSUME reached the #1 spot in the Japanese pop charts with their 3rd single “HOLD ON ME”.  In 1999, the group had their first nationwide tour with 19 performances in 7 cities for 40,000 fans.

In September of 1999, MORNING MUSUME released their smash hit “Love Machine” that sold 2 million copies and held the first place spot in the Japanese pop charts and stayed 17 weeks on the Oricon Karaoke Chart.

MORNING MUSUME is famous not just for being the Japan’s top female group, but also for its unique approach with the shuffling of members.  Producer TSUNKU♂ creates freshness by graduating band members and adding new members to create different units and adds fresh new faces for fans old and new.

In 2007, MORNING MUSUME made a historic impact within the Japanese music industry as the band welcomed new members Jun Jun and Lin Lin from China and began to reach an international audience.   In 2008, MORNING MUSUME celebrated their 10th anniversary.  MORNING MUSUME is definitely the world’s most famous and successful Japanese all-girl group.

MORNING MUSUME consists of band members Ai Takahashi, Risa Niigaki, Eri Kamei, Sayumi Michishige, Reina Tanaka, Koharu Kusumi, Aika Mitsui, JunJun, and LinLin.


I am SO FRIGGIN EXCITED! :twothumbs :twothumbs :twothumbs :muffin: :muffin: :k-thrilled: :k-thrilled: :tama-apeshit: :pen_whirl:

I'm absolutely giddy.

OH MY GOD I've never been more jealous of Californians in my entire life up until now. I hate you all, Californians. HATE. This hate could even potentially extend to the entire west coast.

 :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Anyone wanna loan me a shitload of money so I can go? :D :D :D Okay, probably not...

P.S. Don't mind me. I will get over my bitter jealousy in time.  :banghead: Espescially if Momusu's 2nd US concert appearance is in, say, Baltimore. Best cure for bitter envy ever.

Oh my, oh my...this...:stunned:

Maybe those emails I get from hotels.com that advertise super-cheap hotel rooms will actually come in handy after all.

Oh shit. I was kinda planning on going to see Hangry&Angry, but that plan is completely forgotten now.

Absolutely nothing is stopping me from going. Nothing. I already told my mom that I'm going no matter what comes up in the time frame. She thinks I should find someone to go with me, but fat chance anyone I know will wanna go. Not that that is stopping me.

I never expected this. This is the greatest news I could ever have since this week (and year) have been turning out so bad for me.

I'm totally making a special shirt for this occasion. Risa~~~~~  :wub:  :heart: I will get to meet them!
