Oh, I love the Hello! Project. Most of my songs on my iPod are H!P related. Love I know I'm a bit obsessed, but they're so awesome! I'm surprised you don't have a Morning Musume blog.. I know it's the biggest group in the H!P, but really, you should put one.

Maki Goto is god of Hello! Project. But the whole project has been developed very well with amazing artists who do their thing.

Boogie GOTO!

that's right. tsunku is god of hello! project. Wink and that's actually a fact. Laughing

and about goto.... i have to say i like ayaya, nacchi and mikitty better as solo artists. i haven't listened that much to goto, but after watching the "some boys! touch" PV i was kinda shocked and decided i didn't want more of that. the other stuff i've heard by her didn't really impress me either. i guess i just don't like her voice or something.

it would actually be interesting to see what H!P arists/groups that people here listen to. i'll make a list of mine. based kinda much on my last.fm profile.

1. Morning Musume (kinda obvious... Tongue including sakura gumi and otome gumi)
2. Aya Matsuura (kinda inactive as a solo artist now, since she's in GAM)
3. Miki Fujimoto (i know... she hasn't been solo for 4 years, but i still listen to her stuff Wink)
4. W (hope that aibon will come back soon... but it seems she's been paparazzied again... Crying)
5. Natsumi Abe (i like her latest mini album quite a lot, actually)
6. GAM (not much released yet, but more's coming)
7. Ai Takahashi (one download only single, but oh so good it is)
8. Mini Moni (been a while though...)
9. Tanpopo (only a few songs, i have yet to find the other)

most of the shuffle units (3-nin Matsuri, 7-nin Matsuri, 10-nin Matsuri, Happy 7, Sexy 8, 7AIR, 11WATER, SALT5, H!P All Stars, Sexy Otona Jan, Elegies)

other not so long lasted units: Aa!, Gomattou, Nochiura Natsumi, DEF. DIVA

i have all melon kinenbi's complete discography too, but i have listened to 5 songs or so by them. i have and listen to the douyou pops 1 album too (if anyone knows where i can get the other 3 pleeeease tell me!) and the ribon no kishi the musical soundtrack.

i'm not very fond of the H!P kids stuff. i'm happy that others are, though, because it brings money to H!P. Wink

I have the same.. I also have almost the whole discography of entire Hello Project! but some songs I haven't even heard. (including Melon Kinenbi, I have all their songs, but I've only heard like 8 or 10 But I love "This is Unmei" and "Saa! Koibito ni Narou")
- I'm one of those other who likes H!P kids Wink

My H!P top is;
1. Morning Musume (Not much to say her I guess, my fave member is Yossie, I'll miss her soo much Crying )
2. Berryz Koubou (really getting popular, love all their songs, my favs are Special Generation, Waracchaouyo BOYFRIEND, Munasawagi Scarlet and 21 Ji Made no Cinderella... VERY BEAUTY was also great. My fave member is Miyabi..)
3. C-ute (Not as popular as Berryz but they'll get there.. really like their songs. I miss Megumi No but atleast I still have Airi Nod )
4. Biyuuden (I miss having Rika in MM, even though she doesn't have a great voice. Biyuuden songs are catchy... my current fave is Bi ~Hit parade~)
5. Aya Matsuura (great songs, sweet voice... but maybe it's not that interesting seeing her perform)
6. W (I miss Aibon, like soo many others Sad)
7. Maki Goto (hated the Some boys touch Pv, but the song was catchy.. and I sometimes catch myself sing "Genshoku Gal Hadeni Ikube" my fave song of hers)
8. Miki Fujimoto (Her voice is great, but not sure how much i like her personality)
9. Natsumi Abe. (Goto has a little more catchy songs than Nacchi, some of her songs tends to get boring)
10. GAM (well, to great voices, nice songs..and boring PVs.. sorry Tongue)

- I want more songs like Aa's first kiss, and DEF. DIVA's Suki Sugite Baka Mitai Love

To Bumb this thread with a news..

IT'S OFFICIALLY OVER WITH AI KAGO

To whom it may concern:

Regarding our client Kago Ai and the article in the weekly magazine that went on sale on March 26th, the information in the article has been verified with Kago herself, to our regret.

One year ago, when Kago was 17 and the smoking problem happened, we still considered her future in this company, and as punishment, she was imposed to house arrest in her parents' home. Seeing how she had progressed over that year, it was decided to start from scratch and start preparing for a comeback by bringing her to Tokyo and having her do clerical and other office duties, starting on January 23rd. Although this worked out well for two months, there was another incident and the comeback plan was abandoned. After consulting with the family, as she is a minor, it has been confirmed, and she has been released from her contract.

We're very sorry that it has come to this, and accept full responsibility.

We feel a renewed sense of responsibility for the future, especially when it comes to minors.

This makes me soo sad, first the good news about her future return.. now this?! Crying No

NOOOOOO!!! Surprised Surprised Surprised Crying

i had my hopes up that this just would be a fake story.... and all this after she said that she wanted to come back... i can't really say how much i hate that paparazzi just now, but at the same time i can't help but being shocked by that she actually did that. she was SO CLOSE and yet she did something like this and messed it up. i don't really think i want to talk about this.... i read about it on H!O the whole night two days ago, so i pretty much know the whole story and i've kinda heard enough. it just makes me sad. poor aibon... this has to be the worst way anybody's graduated from H!P. Sad

can't UFA at least release the third album? or at least the single? i mean, they were recorded, right? Sad

well, at least there's no more waiting.... hope tsuji will be alright by herself.

They dropped Aibon? Sad

I hadn't really been following H!P recently so I didn't know about the scandal...

What will happen to W?

What about Nono?

I feel so bad for Aibon...

She's been around for so long...

A founding member of ミニモニ...

This is really sad... Crying

well, actually it doesn't really change anything since she's been gone for a year already, thus W has been on hiatus for a year, but has now officially ended. nono is doing stuff on her own, she's been on several tv-shows and now she's a seiyuu for an anime to which she sings the opening theme and it's going to be released 15th of may. it must've been hard on her to hear those news after hearing that kago'd be back soon. and that's really what hurt me the most too. if she just would've been caught before the news about her coming back i wouldn't have been so sad.

can't nono and mari do something together? Confused

Yeah, but I was hoping for W to get back together again...

The thing that really upsets me is how Ai Kago has just suddenly fallen from stardom. No

about yossie's graduation: tsunku was saying that she'd go solo or maybe create a new unit, right? if she does create a new unit, couldn't she, satoda mai and ayaka be put together? aren't they really good friends? they did a futarigoto together at least. i'm not sure how much i like mai's and ayaka's voices since i haven't heard much of them, but seeing them just doing nothing more than some shuffles and tv-shows makes me feel bad about them. what do you think?

wheeeee! a couple of awesome news after the depressive aibon news. Giggle

creds to H!O as so many times before. Tongue

Quote:
Alo-Hello! Niigaki Risa DVD Boogie Boogie Love
Release Date: 6/13
Risa's very first Alo-Hello DVD is on the release schedule, which means a matching photobook could also be coming. This was probably shot just recently while Morning Musume were having their fanclub event in Hawaii.

Matsuura Aya 19th single
[Title Undecided]
Release date: 5/30
Ayaya returns with her first single since February 2006's "Suna wo Kamu You ni... NAMIDA"


i'm reeeeeeally looking forward to another mame-pb. i have to say that amanatsu (her 2nd pb) is one of if not my nbr one favourite photobook. she looks absolutely stunning. amazing. she really has turned into a beauty the past two years, and i have to say that she beats ai-chan and mikitty and eririn (which are my other favourites). and i almost forgot! a whole alo-hello! dvd too! Giggle (wait... it doesn't even confirm there'll be a pb Surprised) i looked forward to tanaka's and kamei's love hello! dvds, but this beats them. without a doubt.
and a new single by ayaya! yay! Giggle i do hope it's great. but as it seems she's going for the jazzier style, i really think she can't mess it up. well, that is if she keeps singing in japanese and not cover anything english or make another jazz remake of her earlier songs (which pretty much destroyed her last album.... plus the fact that she didn't have any of the recent singles on it.... why? Confused). not that i don't like her remakes, i just like new songs better. Tongue

so, great news. but three months away.... Sad i'll just have to wait and pick up all the other great stuff that's being released before that Giggle (GAM's 1st album, momusu's 33rd single, nacchi's 11th single....).

and i almost forgot this fantastic news: Boogie

Quote:
Morning Musume's Niigaki Risa and Kamei Eri will co-host a new 30-minute radio show on FM FUJI called GAKI•KAME. Be sure to send your letters of encouragement to them at gakikame@fmfuji.co.jp or via this form Smile

This will be part of the hour-long "Hello!Project Night" along with ℃-ute's Cutie Party. The shows air back-to-back from 11pm-Midnight on Saturday nights.


since the first time i listened to gaki-san's talk in the intro of "yuki ai anata suki" i've actually longed for her to get a radio show. her voice is just so.... radioish. Laughing it's a soft and soothing voice, and i like eri's voice too. i haven't listened to japanese radio shows before, but after i started to listen to "YUI LOCKS!" last week i have to say i enjoy it, and it's really good for practicing japanese. anyway.... nii-nii and eririn is (as i said) two of my favourites, and i really think they'll get along well (though i think eri'll be made fun of more than risa Tongue). just a feeling i have.

wow, pretty long post.... and a double post too. but i have to say i'm purty happy right now. and for those who doesn't know: mame = gaki-san = nii-nii = niigaki risa Tongue sorry if i confused anyone.

wow... this thread is dead... tripple post? am i allowed to do this? Surprised

anyway: fan-net has confirmed that GAM's debut album will be released the 23rd of May. and the title isn't confirmed yet, but it says "1st GAM〜甘い誘惑", and that might just be true.
some other things mentioned:
初のアルバム - debut album
・全9曲収録 - something about it having 9 tracks
・初回盤のみ『LU LU LU』の別バージョンPV、メイキングを収録したDVD付き。- there will be a LU LU LU special version PV and a making of of it on a dvd (i think...).

anyway... now i have to grab something to eat. and btw - GAKIKAME pwned. really. it was awesome. and my feeling about risa making fun of eri was correct too. can't wait for tomorrow's ep. Giggle

i promise i won't post again before someone else does (so you better post! Laughing).

yeah, 悲しみトワイライト is really selling well! Giggle they've beaten their last 5 singles' first week sales already, and if they keep selling this well, they might come up in ~70k, which will make it their best selling single since Ai Araba IT'S ALLRIGHT! back in the beginning of 2004. and that ws 12 singles ago. that just makes me so happy. Boogie
i was really surprised that they managed to grab the #2 spot again. i was telling myself to be happy if they managed to stay in the top 5. Tongue but now it seems like they can get ranked #2 in the weekly charts. really nice. momusu is not dead yet! Laughing

apparently, mame is going to release her third photobook 27th of May. Love Isshun (moment, instant...) is the title. and apparently she won't get a pb for her Alo-Hello! DVD a month later, but hey, it's certainly better than nothing. Wink and since it's mame, it'll be awesome.

and ayaya's single was postponed from 2007.05.30 to 2007.07.01. Sad but i guess she's busy with the debut album for GAM. Smile

i haven't heard much about the chinese girls in a while... gonna be interesting to see what happens after the graduation of yossie. Nod
