Ogawa Rena will go on Haitus

Image
It was announced that Kobushi Factory's Ogawa Rena will be going on a Haitus. She will be absent until at least mid-august. Renako has been suffering from anxiety neurosis. This means Rena won't take part in the upcoming Kobushi Factory events nor in the Hello!Project summer tour.  Let's all support Rena and Kobushi Factory during these hard times.

Update on Aikawa Maho

Image
Aikawa Maho gave an update on her status. She has been doing better and is currently at university studing Photography. From January until March, Aiai couldn't leave the house, but she is currently doing well with daily life. She is in contact with the ANGERME members and wants to stay in ANGERME. Maho, however, doesn't feel like she could handle the stress of being an idol yet, so she asks us to be patient. She won't be returning for the Angerme fall tour. After this managment, Maho, her family and doctors will speak about her returning or not.

Kobushi Factory updated their profile picture

Image
With the termination of Fuji Rio's contract, it was only a matter of time before Kobushi Factory would update their profile picture to their new 7 member line-up.  The picture features the 7 members in their Shalala! Yareru Hazu sa outfits. They are just some individual pictures pasted togheter to form a group photo. Some thing haven't changed yet (blog header, twitter profile, youtube), but this will most likely happen in the upcoming few days. Let's support Kobushi Factory as this will be a very hard time for them.

Tsubaki Factory announced the details for their 2nd major debut single! The single will be released on the 27th of July and is called: Shuukatsu Sensation/Waratte/Hana Moyou The single will be released in 7 versions (3 regular, 3 limited and 1 special edition)! These are the covers: Limited A Limited A features the girls in their Shuukatsu outfits. It's quite a nice cover with them "running". It's simple yet very cute. I love the pink line as it gives the cover color.
Limited B How can such simple covers been so beautiful? I think these are the outfits for Waratte, but it wouldn't suprise me if Hana moyou has two outfits to show (like with ANGERME's Koi nara Hajimaru). The outfits are cute, weird, yet cute. I love how white the cover is as it makes them stand out so much. 
Limited C Ahhh I love this! I love the effect and the colors! Yes for this cover and those beautiful girls!
Regular A Another simple yet cute cover for Shuukatsu. I really love how they are all…

Shocking News on Country Girls

Image
Hello!Project announced some big changes coming up for Country Girls. As you all know, playing manager Tsugunaga Momoko will be graduating at the end of this month. Country Girls will start prefoming as a 5-nin unit until the end of the summer. When the summer ends Yamaki Risa and Ozeki Mai will focus on school, while Morito Chisaki, Yanagawa Nanami and Funaki Musubu will all join different groups within Hello!Project. Country Girls will only be active during vacations and school breaks.  This also means that the group won't release any singles, the songs that they release will be digital singles. 
What this actually means is that Country Girls will become a sub-unit, with members from other groups and members who are only active when school allows them to be. It is not know which groups Chii, Yanami and Musubu will join or if they will stay togheter. More information will be provided on a later date.
This is really sad and weird news.  It's quite terrible to see Country Girl…

ANGERME released the covers to their 23th single!

Image
ANGERME will be releasing their 23th single on the 21st of June. The single has three a-sides and is called: Ai Sae Areba Nanni mo Iranai / Namida Iro no Ketsui / Majokko Megu-chan This single will be without Aikawa Maho as she is on Haitus. There will be 6 versions of this single: 3 regular, 2 limited and 1 special edition.
Regular A I love the effect on this cover! The outfits are for Ai Sae and gosh do the girls look beautiful. I am still no big fan of Kamiko's hairstyle, but urgh I adore this cover. The red cloth looks like a flower and makes the cover super elegant. 
Regular B Oh this is cute! I love the flowers and that they are holding their image colours! And look at the green in the middle! We all know that Namida Iro is a song for Aiai, so this makes it a little bit more bittersweet. The girls look wonderful and I love how simple this cover is!
Regular C All the yes! Majokko's cover looks amazing! I love the soft pastel colors and the simplicity of the cover. All girls …
