Miyabi's new group is called PINK CRES.

Image
I am a bit late to the party, but Natsuyaki Miyabi's group finally has a name! The group has been togheter since April, yet they didn't have a name. During Buono's concert in Budokan, the name was finally revealed to be: PINK CRES. The meaning of the name is their groups colors (Pink) with Cres from Crescendo. Crescendo means music gradually growing louder and it should represent their growth as a group.  The group also preformed three songs of which two were new: Summer Wonderland Warning~Mirai Keihou~ Uwa no Sora PINK CRES. also opened their official site and blog: Site Blog

C-ute to disband in 2017

Image
Yesterday several newspapers announced the disbandment of C-ute. This has been confirmed soon after by management and C-ute themselfs. The group announced they will break up as a group in June of 2017 C-ute had been thinking about stopping eversince Hagiwara Mai got 20, but as they hadn't preformed at their dream stage, they didn't want to break up yet. So when management announced to them they would preform at Saitama Super Arena, their dream stage, the girls decided this would also be their last stage as a group.  Ofcourse they thought about going on as a group outside of H!P, but C-ute found that the group was an important part of H!P and couldn't take it away. They also thought about putting the group on Haitus, like their fellow H!P Kids members Berryz Koubou did. Yet the girls thought it would be best if they "broke up" after their SSA preformance.  C-ute will not be taking part in the Hello!Pro winter concert of 2017, to focus on their last single and con…

*Confirmed* C-ute to disband in 2017

Image
Guys this is a Rumor! (Edit: 20th of august: confirmed) I just wanted to post it because this is quite serious for H!P fans. It seems like C-ute will announce their disbandment tomorrow. Several japanese papers have been publishing articles about C-ute disbanding in June of 2017 with their final stage being in Saitama Super Arena.  Tomorrow is the H!P concert at Nakano Sun Plaza and it's suspected they will announce it then. 
I do not know if this is true. It might be. C-ute has been around for so long, it wouldn't be weird if they wanted to do something else with their lives. H!P won't be the same without them though.
A lot of questions remain, if this is true: will they graduate the group, disband it or go on haitus like Berryz? Will they all leave H!P or will some of them stay around? Who will become H!P leader?
Will they stay in the entertainment? Let's wait around until tomorrow. I am going to fly to America tomorrow, so the updates about this might be slow.

It was only a matter of time, since so many Kenshuusei are debutting in groups, but Hello!Pro Kenshuusei announced their 26th generation!

Juice=Juice move the release date of their upcoming single and release new profile pictures

Image
Without a given reason Juice=Juice's upcoming single was pushed back. The single would originally release in september, but is now moved to the 26th of october.  The name for the single didn't change, but the girls did release new profile pictures with the outfits for KEEP ON Joshou Shikou!! Let's have a look at them! Miyazaki Yuka  Yuka looks adorable in her close up! This color suits her and her ponytail makes her so mature. She does look really tiny and thin in this outfit. I like the arm things, but the pants are quite meh. 
Kanazawa Tomoko Tomoko, urgh you all know my feelings for this girl, she looks perfect. I adore her close up and she looks really good in the full body picture. Pants are still weird but the pictures are nice. 
Takagi Sayuki Don't cover up Sayuki! Eversince J=J's Budokan Drama, I feel like they are actually treating Sayuki like her character. This girl has a great body, show it. I like her ponytail btw!
