Subbed, Tsunku’s announcement on JunLin and Kamei’s graduation.

OMG! This is so sad. You have to watch this. I can’t bear it at all. I still accept Kamei’s reason, that she wants her life to be better. But making JunLin graduate with the main reason as to pursue a career in China is pointless. They have already established a career in Japan, returning to China is so pointless. They could like promote as a duo or a soloist in China and be part of Morning Musume in Japan. It’s like Big Bang or Kara promoting in both Japan and Korea.

Well anyways, it’s already there and we can’t change the fact that by the end of this year Morning Musume will be a 5 nin group. Heck Berryz is bigger than them. Let’s just hope that the 9th gen audition will be turn out to be a fruitful one.

Kamei Eri, Junjun, and Linlin will graduate Morning Musume and H!P

Okay, I hate to break it to you but that’s the whole truth. Tsunku confirmed on his blog that 6th generation member Kamei Eri and 8th generation members Junjun and Linlin will graduate Morning Musume and H!P.

Kamei Eri has this serious skin condition ever since the start of the audition. According to Tsunku (for those who can’t read japanese), he himself looked for doctors who can cure or treat the condition. Unfortunately, the doctors consultation is that they should concentrate on the treatment first.

Junjun and Linlin sadly will return to China with reasons still unknown.

This was really a heartbreaking news for me since Kamei is in my top 3 in Morning Musume rankings and I consider Junjun and Linlin the future of Morning Musume (especially Linlin). I could take it if only one member will graduate. But three members plus 2 of my favorites has to go. So in less than a year 4 members has already graduated from Morning Musume alone. They’re gonna be miss.

Graduation will take place in the last day of Morning Musume’s Autumn 2010 tour.

Here’s a few performances to remember them

OMG! It feels like I just broke up with my girlfriend. This is so sad…

Help S/mileage to debut!10,000 smile picture Campaign

Tsunku announced that S/mileage needs 10,ooo smile pictures from you for them to debut~

Announced during today’s 2010 Haropro Egg Norimen Live Ni-gatsu concert, and on S/mileage’s official site is the challenge that Tsunku has given to S/mileage. Since a part of the S/mileage name stands for “smile”, he is asking for 10,000 smile pictures from people around the world. Tsunku wants to see what the S/mileage girls can do to accomplish this. In return, he will let S/mileage major debut in May. This campaign begins now and will end on March 25th midnight, Japan time.

I miss the old Musume

Do you remember this old Morning Musume concert

Well personally I don’t. Morning Musume and Hello! Project hasn’t been born yet in my heart by the time this concert was released.

But as a fan, I have watched almost all Morning Musume concerts (except for the first few which I never got to see because I don’t know where)

Well I consider that concert as one of the classic Morning Musume concerts. I consider this concert as the end of Morning Musume’s popularity because after this one, they just got declining sales in almost everything (well except for the girls Photobooks). It is also the end because this was the last Morning Musume concert for Aibon and Nono. They left after Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari and created the lovely group W.

The song has also a significance to the end of Morning Musume’s reign as Japan’s number 1 girl group. Koko ni Iruzee was the last time Morning Musume had a first week sales of more than 100,000. Now they are lucky if they get 50,000 in their first week sales. In fact, the last time the girls had a final sales of 100,000 plus was at the time Shabondama was released.

My question is why can’t the girls be like those girls 6 years ago. 4 girls from that concert are still with Morning Musume (but Majority is out) can’t they bring that popularity now?

I still Love Morning Musume but Tsunku needs to get moving and make the girls famous or else some GROUP might take their place.

Oh you know what I’m talking I’m about them

Yes these girls are beating Morning Musume. Since the release of 10nen Zakura, they never had a final sales that is under 100,000.

River was released around the same time as Kimagure Princess

River got 178,759

Kimagure got 36,274

Kimagure Princess didn’t even reached half of River’s first week sales.

AKB48 got invited at last years Kohaku Uta Gassen, H!P doesn’t even have one representative. AKB48 won Asian Recommended Award at MAMA.

And where is Morning Musume.

What happened to the 1,646,630? gone with the wind.

Has Morning Musume lost its sparks.

Personally I think no. Morning Musume still can reach number 1 at Oricon. Morning Musume can still be in the top 10 in most charts.

The problem is not them. It’s that DAMN Tsunku’s fault for the girls declining sales.


Let’s face it old man. You cannot write as good lyrics as you did with Love Machine. People rusts too. It’s time for you to find a new composer for the girls.

I promise you, If you find a new one that can compose not good but EXCELLENT music. The girls will be back at their own position.
