Despite her past scary looking phase, Umeda has been look really good lately! Especially with her her new hairstyle! I absolultely LOVE her voice, and I think she is one of the better sounding girls from the very start! She seems to get nervous super easy, though, so it makes her not as good as we'd probably hear? Anyways, she's the oldest HPK and definitely one of the most hidden because no one likes her... :(

I do I do... I loooved her in ZXY, and then hated her in her ugly period :p

But now I really like her again... haha. Her voice is awesome, and she's tall and skinny and she's looking great.  What else is there to ask from a H!P girl?

Erika's become so cute recently! I wondered if I was the only one who thought she was having an ugly phase, luckily she outgrew it.

I was kinda surprised to find out that she wasn't going to be the leader of °C-ute but it works out fine the way it is.

I was surprised, too! But I almost think it's better... Maimi seems to be around more than Erika anyways, so that may have been the reason?

No one loves Erika?! SADNESS!

Erika looked really good in the C-ute PVs! I hope she performs more at concerts because she has a really good voice :o

While I cannot say she is my absolute favorite she is definitely very cute.  Her Sports Festival 2006 DVD was fun to watch.  I don't think I ever saw the ISO posted in the torrents section so maybe I can try to share it some time when I have free bandwidth if there is more interest.

I like Erika. I think she's my second favorite in C-ute.
But since I don't feel that I know them I can't say for sure. ^_^
She's soOpa kawaii in the kingfestival-thingy pictures.

So, for their first two episodes of C-ute's new radio show, Cutie Party, Erika has hosted with Megumi, and it REALLY shows off her personality. I can't even understand what they're saying, and Erika's personality shines through. She has to be in my top favorite C-ute girls~

Erika is love.  Super love.

I read something a while back about her being half German or something, which was why she wasn't chosen for leader even though she was the oldest.

...but what ever she is still love.  Super pretty, super talented, I just havn't seen much of C-utes personallity to be able to say she is my C-ute favourite though.  I honestly don't have a C-ute favourite, but Yajima and Umeda have always stood out for me (Okai and Megumi also).

Though not my favorite in C-ute (that place is reserved for Airi), I still consider Erika to be the prettiest in C-ute, the other are cute, but she's pretty...

Hmm a neglected thread Poor Erika Umeda. Well all i can say is she is my fav member because she is alittle quirky (in all the right ways) and stands out. Then  again she is tall for a Japanese girl so i guess she cant help but do that. I like her voice as well.

I've started liking Erika more and more recently, I'm a superficial fuck so it's probably mostly because she's been looking very pretty. Her voice is nice too (though I still sometimes go like "is that Erika??" cuz her voice is so cute, but she looks mature). It seems hard to get to know her, though, even in backstage fun fun videos she often doesn't stand out. I wonder what it's like for her to be with "a bunch of kids" especially now that Meguru's gone.

And to think she'll be 16 this year :) They're growing up so fast!!

I don't think Berryz is for Erika. She belongs with C-ute (or in a shuffle with Miki and Miyabi. That was love). Especially since they are getting their first major single and a photobook. More attention for them which means more attention to Erika! Huzzah!

That was Megumi in Sexy Otona with Miki and Miyabi though, not Erika :D

I think lookswise Erika would stand out less in Berryz because there are other tall girls, too (and they look older than C-ute). I wouldn't change the groups, of course XD

arian posted this pic of Erika in her LJ the other day and totally converted me as a fan :P



I can't believe I never noticed her before~ She's totally gorgeous! :o And she's a huge Maki Goto fan too, which makes her all kinds of win :heart:

Don't forget, Erika is hitting sweet 16 this year! :heart:

So, with that, I'll make the countdown already.
