My 2014 Predictions.

Happy new year everyone.

Sorry for completely ignoring the blog. Been having a hard time trying to stay awake after working double shifts for months on end.

So I've decided to do this predictions post to get me back into the swing of things.

Morning Musume '14

They will perform on Kohaku!!
I was disappointed that they didn't get invited to perform but as the saying goes "when one door closes, another opens".

They appear more on TV.
And not just for promotion of singles/albums, but for just being them.

Sayumi doesn't announce her graduation.
Like hell she can. She wants to perform at Kohaku again so she has to stay until she's 27.

If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I started using this hash tag for Zukki. THIS IS HER YEAR TO SHINE!!!!! She's defending her weight on TV, her vocals ate beautiful and she (finally) got a line in a single that's in the section that will be performed. THIS IS HER YEAR!!!!!

Berryz Koubou

They actually get a budget.
Bigger budget means better PV.

They make an album that's not boring.
I was very disappointed in their last 2 albums. 6th Otakebi Album was the first album I got from them back when I first started getting into Hello! Project. So for me that is their greatest album.

Make it the Berryz Koubou show not the miyabi/Risako show featuring Berryz Koubou.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think there is anything wrong with having the two best singers in the group lead but when they sung 3/4 of the song but themselves for majority of the single releases, it does get borning......quickly.

They remind people that they do have great group chemistry.
This relates to their budget. Remember when they had good PVs and their group chemistry was showing more? Didn't they have a better budget then?

No-one graduates.
I've been reading that a lot of people think that someone (namely Captain) or all are going to graduate this year. Please don't.


No-one graduates.
They've got a good thing going at the moment. Having a member graduate now will hurt the group, especially with the tabloid media trying to get Airi fired for having a (non existent) relationship.


They continue to get happy, smiley songs.
Yatteruchan was the best thing to happen to them this year. They need more songs like that.

They step up their game and have a chance to perform at Budokan in 2015.
With J=J in the screen, the girls need to step up and show that they are not another Berryz Koubou.

Katsuta Rina becomes interesting.
The girl needs to act like she wants to be there. Right now, I feel it would be best if she gtfo. She got picked over Kanoko Rie who just left H!PK after 5 years. A girl who always showed us just how much she wants to be an idol. A girl who never got the chance to debut, but this girl did and she looks like she doesn't want to be there.

Nakanishi and Takeuchi get a Photo book.
Kana is beautiful and Akari has this tomboy coolness going on. Wouldn't a pb with just them in it acting like lover be great? Especially if Sayumi or Fukuda puts in the ideas.


They perform on music station.
They're good enough and hungry enough to do this.

They announce that their going Budokan before S/milage.
It happened to C-ute, it could happen to them.

They release an album and have their first nation wide tour.
Nuff said.

Hello! Project Kenshuusei

A new unit is announced.
I like the idea of having the girls from the 12th gen audition forming their own unit. Also Sasaki Rikako, Hamaura Ayano, Kosuga Fuyuka and Tanabe Nanami need to debut. So that's two new units I would like to see announced.

On a side note, it would be nice to see another group achieve that #1 on or icon. I think that either C-ute or Juice=Juice might get that what with their sales and promotions.


  1. Ouch, that Rina vs. Rie comparison... so true. :'(

    Rina has such a cute voice (during their debut she was by far the best of the 2nd gen), but she looks so shy; I feel like she's not giving it her all. I've seen improvement in all the 2nd generation EXCEPT her.

    1. i'm having the same reaction to her that i had with Risako, i just want to shake some energy into her everytime i see her.

    1. AHHHH! i forgot about that. But lets not stop at a 4th, but carry on for the whole year. Number 1 all year
