30 Day Idol Challenge: Day 4: If the Idol was a boy, who would be your boyfriend?

I'm not sure why i picked Maasa, but i think out of all the current members, Maasa who be the best as when it was her time on HPT and she went to Akihabara with Risako, she dressed up as a boy and i thought she looks so handsome as a boy.


Favorite Group?

30 Day Idol Challenge: Day 3: If you were a boy, who would be your girlfriend?

This was a hard one but i chose Captain because on a recent show that berikyuu was on, Miya told us about Captain's phone voice and they proceeded to do a demostration of a typical phone call and i absolutly LOVE LOVE LOVE how cute her voice was then. So if i was a boy, i would want to hear my girlfriend speak that cute to me on the phone.

Plus she's tiny. I love tiny girls (minus Momoworld)


If the Idol was a boy, who would be your boyfriend?

30 Day Idol Challenge: Day 2:The Idol You Hate/Dislike

I was unable to update yesterday due to my Laptop deciding that it's had enough of me. Just when the internet finally stops being a pain.

I don't hate her i just don't have any feelings towards her. I find her character confusing and her dress sense at time verging on slutty. I'm also not a big fan of her vocals and hair style.

I can take her vocals during group songs because than i can focus on other girls but when it's just her i can't take it.

Not to mention that I'm also not a big fan of some of fans (actually I'm not a big fan of fans who can't take it when someone does not like their favourite idol. I like to explain myself because i feel that you need to justify why you either like/dislike something/one. I just don't like people for the sake of it. for instances, I dislike the colour pink, peas, broccoli and anything else green but i love Chisato, Sayumi  and Risa and i like Yurina and Airi, just because i have a hatred for those colours doesn't mean i hate the idols who has them as member colours.)


If you are or were a boy, who would be your girlfriend?

30 Day Idol Challenge: Day 1: Your Favourite Idol

I've been planning on doing this for a while but......I've been lazy. So while i can only manage to load like 1 picture before my Internet connection decides that it wants to be an ares and take forever to do anything, I'll start.

So my favourite idol is......

Saki Shimizu, Captain of Berryz Koubou and the cutest 20 yr old i have ever seen.

After my fascination with Momoworld finished, she was the second member of Berryz that i saw and i fell for her. I'm not sure what it was that made me take to her but she has become my NO#1 member of H!P. She is also the only member of H!P that i own a Photo Book of.

Tomorrows Question is....

The Idol You Hate/Dislike.

By the way. Please support Airiindeshou DVD Donation Project.

If you have been watching any of the TPF subs, you'll know Airiindeshou as one of the members who works on their releases. This project to to get H!P DVD's, mainly concerts, out to us international fans around the day they are released. All money raised will go to the purchase of these DVD's and the DVD's will become the prise for contests to those who have donated $5 and over (about £3.23). Personally, i don't usually do this donating thing but considering how expensive it is for these DVD's and Blue-Rays are plus shipping, I'm willing to support this as my budget is so small that by the time i want to but one of these DVD's, I've run out of money.

Please go to this blog as it also has downloads for loads of other past concerts plus download links for various TV spots that our girls have been on.

Thank you for listening to my request. The link above is for the Q&A about this project.

Please Miniskirt Postwoman? I want more of this.

I can't believe i'm writing this while completely exhausted. My fault reall for not getting enough sleep due to watching the MBCMS event on Nicox2 at 4 in the morning (and i had to look after my aunts shop for 8 hours as well).

Anyways, a few days ago, S/mileage staff uploaded a rehearsal video for their new single Please Miniskirt Postwoman and i'm really excited about this single.

This single marks the offical debut for 2nd gen and the last for Yuukarin. It's released on the same day as Kikkawa You's new single Konna Watashi de Yokattara on December 28th, 3 days before Yuukarin graduates beaning a nice friendly battle between former eggs and Yuukarin not being able to celebrate with the girl when the weekly ranking comes in.

Ok, So obivious this is a rehearsal, REMEMER THAT!!!! They will get better with more practice.

The song is, in my opinion, is their best to date. It's catchy, super cute and keep with the S/mileage theme of putting a smile on your face. The line distrubution is quite fair i'd say. Cinderella, Meimei and Takechan get the most lines and i have to say that both Meimei (who is growing on me) and Takechan are the stand outs. It's quite obvious that management is pushing Meimei and here is where i fell that she deserves it. She fits the s/mileage image perfectly even if she does scares the living daylights out of me. Her singing has improved greatly, she's learned to tone down her projection while improving her tone and pitch.

Takechan is a surprise for me. What i mean is, while she is the best singer and dancer out of 2nd gen, i thought that we'd have another Riho/Fukuchan situation (where Fukuchan is the most experienced and overall better talent, Riho is getting all the promotion), expecting management to push Kanana a bit more, but this is good. She's a strong singer, something S/mileage has been missing since Sakitty left.

Kanana only gets one solo line and i'm quite thankful for that as she is the weakest singer in the group. She has improved but i still think that she should have either beed left as a sub member or demoted to the eggs.

Katsuta is forgetfull. I completely forget what she sounds like as soon as she's finished her solo lines. Another girl that should not have been promoted.

Yuukarin doesn't get as many lines in this single as she usually does, this is mainly due to her leaving soon. a few people have commented on youtube about her not singing as much and i think that it's fair as mamagement need to distrubute her line between the other girls and the less lines she has the less of a problem it'll be.

I'm loving the DAWA/Meimei combo. It's cuteness overload and having this combo in the beginning, middle and end of the song means you can't escape these Fang Toothed Wacky Cuties or Team Fang as i will mow call them.

This single has the most complicated dance routine S/mileage has ever had but it fits the song so well. I especially like Team Fang's parts and when they all sing "Please, Please". Unfortunately Kanana is the worst in this video as she is all over the place and forgets the dance. But she's not the only one. If you take your eyes away from her, you will see that Yuuka, Meimi and Rina alson mess up a bit but not as badly. you have to give her a chance as she is the member with the lease dance experience and she has said that she struggles with learning the dances.

This video was posted on monday and their first perfoemance was dueing the event yesterday. This video was made when they just learnt the dance so judging from the timeline (Oct 16th - Promotion of Sub-members and single announcement - Nov 23rd MBCMS event), they have had to learn the song, have singing lessons on the song, record the song, learn the dance and perfect the dance with heels while doing rehearsals, performances and interviews for MBCMS and rehearsals for the upcoming H!P winter tour. Kanana didn't mess up during the live from what i could see which means she got 10x better.


With the exception of Shortcut stage and Pig song costumes, S/mileage never disappoints. I'm loving this costume. it's clear where UFA spend their money.

I'm really excited for this single and can not wait till were get a view of the PV. Hopefully it's better than Tachiagirl's PV (Which is an utter pile of shit)

Happy 20th Birthday Captain

So i've forgotten a whole load of birthdays lately but how could i forget Captain's? Of course i couldn't.

Morning Musume – 9th and 10th Gen, Aichan’s long awaited Departure, Aika’s Injury

When 9th gen entered, I don’t think I mentioned my first impressions of them, so I’ll say it now and add my new thoughts on the girls.
Fukumura Mizuki, 4th gen egg (3 yrs experience) – pretty girl but I didn’t really know who she was. I knew she replaced Yuuka as Amulet Heart in Shugo Chara Egg but that was all I knew about her. Since joining, she carries herself really elegantly and is very soft spoken and respectful. Her voice is the best out of all 9th gen. I quite like her I just wish she would loosen up a bit more in interviews like when she’s on HPT with the other 9th gen members.

Ikuta Erina – The KY member and AKB fan. She looked so nervous and incredibly awkward when she joined. I did feel sorry for her from all the crap she was getting for being an AKB fan. Since joining, she’s lost her nervousness but still has her awkwardness which I find really endearing. But boy can this girl chat. I watched her E-Hello DVD and majority of the DVD was her chatting away. She’s a very pretty girl and I can see her and Sayu stalking the other members as time goes by.

Sayashi Riho – a pretty and very talented girl, was the obvious choice for 9th gen. I didn’t really take to her. Since joining, she’s still low on my rankings but that’s mainly due to my habit of refusing to like what is shoved in my face. I do feel that her promotion is a little over the top especially since the only thing she’s done to deserve it is just be there. Yes she is talented but singing wise, her voice gets on my nerves and she looks a little smug. Don’t get me wrong, I think that she works very hard and has improved quite a lot. She is a very talented dancer and MM needs strong dancers but vocally, she’s nowhere near ready to be getting solo’s. If anyone out of 9th gen is ready for solo’s its Mizuki.

Suzuki Kanon – the girl with the biggest smile. My initial reaction to her was that she was a happy child. Since joining, every time I see her or see a picture of her, I can’t help but smile. She has the most personality out of all MM and her bug impressions have me in stitches every time. Her vocals have developed greatly and I can see her having a lot of power in the future. The only thing I’m worried about is her weight. I’m not knocking her weight, I think she’s healthy but management are treating her like they treat Maasa and Risako, by covering her up more to hide the fact that she is a little bigger than the other girls. But I don’t see her losing it anytime soon, especially with the way she eats.

When 10th gen auditions were announce, I wasn’t really surprised. UFA knew that 9th gen wasn’t up to taking over Aichan vocally and that in order to start a proper come back to their original theme (the constant additions and graduations that the group is known for) they had to look for more girls ASAP.

The girls chosen to go through to training camp were incredibly talented and this audition had me on the edge of my seat wondering who Tsunku and UFA (come on now, who exactly still thinks that Tsunku has the final say on who joins?) were going to pick. So when the announcement finally came, I was very pleased for all the girls that made it.

Iikubo Haruna, The model – incredible beautiful young lady and her age bridges the gap between Aika and Fukuhime. I can already see her taking over as the fashionable Musume. I’m hoping that UFA will try to continue with her modelling as it is a good way for them to not only promote her but also MM.

Ishida Ayumi, Dorothy Little Happy back dancer – A ready-made idol. I think she is an amazing dancer, better than Riho. Her singing needs work but at this stage, she has more skill in singing then Riho did when she auditioned. She’s going to get pushed quite quickly. I hope that maybe UFA could get together with DLH’s agency and maybe do either a collaboration event or single as that could not only gain MM new fans but also promote DLH more.

Satou Masaki, No experience – The H!P fan. During the auditions she didn’t look very confident but she was the most improved girl in that audition and deserves to join for that reason. Having someone that actually listens to criticism and improves on weak point quickly is a really good thing as UFA can mould her into anything they want. She’s more nervous than Eripyon was and is so quite. Hopefully she can overcome this and shine as the only current member from Hokkaido, something she should be proud of as the other members who came from there did great in and out the group.

Kudo Haruka, 9th gen Egg (1 yr experience) – Officially THE youngest girl to join MM age the tender age of 11. Experience wise, Ayumi has it but vocally, Kuduu has it. Her voice is like velvet on the ear. Within a few years she should be at Aichan level IF UFA invests properly. She is the girl the MM needed to replace Aichan due to her vocals, all that’s left is for UFA to actually use her more than they use Riho.

Overall I think 9th gen had the right impact on MM giving them a renewed fight and some desperately need new blood, Talent wise, not that good in the vocal areas and dance could be strong. Personality wise, it’s the strongest since Koha. 10th gen has the talent but I still need to see them show their personalities. I’ll need a little more time to do a proper ranking because I really don’t like to rank girls that have just joined but right now I would say:

1. Zukki

2. Sayu

3. Gaki

4. Eripyon

5. Fukuhime

6. Kuduu

7. (Joint) Ishida, Iikubo, Satou

10. Riho

11. (Joint) Mitsu, Tanaka

On to Aichan’s graduation.

When she announced that she was leaving, I wasn’t very shocked but I was wondering if UFA really thought that the 9th gen were strong enough to fill the hole that Aichan would leave. I knew that she had to go in order for MM to start fighting again but I was hoping that it would be next year not this year. It still doesn’t feel right watching the new MoBeKiMaSu PV without Aichan taking lead. It feels wrong somehow having Tanaka being the lead in that single. It’s going to be so weird from now on.

Her final concert was a perfect tribute to her. Yes Mr Moonlight wasn’t the best choice to start the concert but it was the first ever song she released with the group and is a big crowd pleaser and the costumes were exquisite. Her ceremony was very emotional. I really felt for Risa, Sayu, most of 9th gen and the fans as she was a real jewel that deserved everything she got. She will be sorely missed.

Aika. Aika, Aika , Aika, Aika.

Poor girl. Never really stood out and now is off sick with a bum foot. This is not meant to sound mean but I really think she should graduate now. Taking nearly 7 months off is something not heard of for a member of an idol group. Most girls with serious injuries leave the group as to not hold them back. But to be honest, I haven’t really missed the girl.

If it was Reina than yeah I could see how UFA would be trying to keep her as she is a front girl. Same goes for Sayu as she is MM’s most popular member and I can’t see them getting rid of her for now. But Aika hasn’t done anything. She hasn’t shown us why Tsunku choose only her out of the 8th gen auditions. Both Koha and Konkon showed everyone why they deserved to have been chosen.

I wish Aika a speedy recovery but I’m waiting for her graduation announcement although i know that it will be Gaki next.

Just had to share this


It's just my friend (Esti) told me that she was in this video. She the girl standing in the background in the big blue dress (Which she made herself.).

Esti told me that they were giving them the evil eye when they were doing this, instead of either telling them to move or, like Esti told me, there was a water feature near them which would have been better.

So Esti didn't know who Beckii Cruel was.......HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

so i told her...............(cantdancecantsinghadbriefcareerasanidolinjapan)

What she told me was this

"Is she for real? they can't even dance. I just thought they were some of those little school kids that stand in a corner at Expo doing they imitations at dancing"


Honestly, the best thing about this video is how Esti and her friends are completely oblivious to what’s going on and are taking pictures of each other.

The actual dance is quite shoddy. Yes she does say that they haven't practiced much but that’s just wrong. Their timing is way WAY off and the only time they were in sync was when they froze.

And here is Esti in her costume.
