Basically this episode FILLS ME WITH LOVE for Hello! Project in 2015!
Seeing Maimi acting as the leader of Hello! Project is great.
The new Country Girls song and performance are WAY TOO CUTE!!! AAAHHHH!!! SLAYYY!!!! For now I've chosen Utachan as my fav in the group because she's adorbs and seems like a complete newbie and I think watching her grow will be a lot of fun. :3 Her slight embarrassment on stage after her first line was so cute and also telling of how inexperienced she is
I also really like Ozekichan's energy and the tone of her voice is pleasant to my ears. The rest of the members I also have nothing bad to say about lol WHEN DO I EVER
J=J... Karin's charisma on stage is INCREDIBLEEE and Aarii's beauty... I'm sorry Kanatomo I think my bias has changed... >_>
It feels now like ANGERME is going to be a new power group at least when it comes to my FEELS because oh my gosh their new songs are amazing and AH
The newbies are kind of a perfect mix because Maho seems currently a kind of a happy but confused goof, Rikako is super energetic and fun, and Murota I think is more 'stable' (but still energetic) than the previous two so she evens out their quirkiness
But strangely as I was watching the perf I wasn't only noticing the newbies, I find that this... well, new group essentially, is revitalizing to S/mileage as a whole, like I am also in a way seeing the older members in a new light and I can't really wait to see their future videos and perfs together, as well.
BUT THAT BIT WHERE RIKAKO DOES A JUMP IN THE CENTRE OF THE STAGE IS THE SHIIIIIITTT my face went from
And I'm loving Momusu as performers, now that Sayu has graduated I'm viewing the more senpai members truly as senpai and it's amazing! They have great expressions on stage and ah yus. I'm especially noticing Daishi now, great timing to get a new haircut
The new unnamed group... When Hamachan said she had really wanted to debut with Taguchi and Renako and now she did, I just felt so happy for them... Taguchi has been someone I haven't paid attention to much in KSS, but I might now
When the members were first revealed I thought Renako would be most interesting to me for sure (because her body language and voice remind me of Eri), but now it might be someone surprising, who knows >_< It's just such a RANDOM mix of girls...
AMAZING STUFFFF THINGS EVOLVING, PROGRESSING, BEING REBORN, AND FRESHLY BORN this was a great episode of Hello! Station
