Limited B For Limted B we have the exact opposite. It's a white cover with the girls in light colored dresses and colorful title. Isn't this a nice cover? It's cute, it's fluffy and it's soooo country girls. I love Momoko's hair so much and I like that their names are on there.

Sadly it has been announced that Morning Musume's 10th generation member Sato Masaki will be on a Haitus for the time being.
She has been diagnosed with a lumbar herniated disc, as was announced in december.
Masaki visited the doctor this week to be consulted about when she can preform again, but sadly the doctor decided she should rest for at least two months.
This means Masaki will not be able to preform before the end of Febuary.  Somewhere in Febuary it will be announced if Masaki is able to return to Morning Musume, this will be after consulting the doctors once more. Maa-chan herself also posted a comment. She says she is really embarresed about the situation and has been trying to heal for a long time. She however understands that if she doesn't take rest, she might never recover. She asks her fans to wait for her, as she wants to be back for Morning Musume's spring tour. She also said she will write a lot on her blog. 
This is tragic news. Poor Maa-chan. She must hav…
