Aikawa Maho graduated ANGERME and Hello!Project

It has sadly been announced that Aikawa Maho decided to graduate from ANGERME and Hello!Project. Maho has been in a haitus for 11 monthes due to anxiety disorder. She hoped to recover and rejoin ANGERME. Eventhough she has been doing better and returning to her university, Maho didn't recover enough to come back to ANGERME.  She says she is very scared her anxiety will return once she starts preforming again and doesn't want her fans to wait for nothing.  Goodbye Aikawa Maho, good luck with university!

Kobushi Factory released new profile pictures!

Kobushi Factory released new profile pictures! After the announcement that Taguchi Natsumi officially left the group, it was ofcourse only a matter of time. Yet the last two times we got editted group pictures of the outfits used in their last single. Yet now we got completely new ones!
Hirose Ayaka & Nomura Minami Ayapan, did you kill a Sesame Street character? Urgh those sleeves! I love pink on her though and her hair is really nice like this! Nomura looks like a model. I love her smile and her hat and her skirt! She looks absolutly fab.
Hamaura Ayano & Wada Sakurako Hamachan looks adorable. I love white on her and the hat is so cute! Big fan of the skirt in combination with the shirt. Sakurako is so pretty, I love her face and hair. Yet that top and skirt look terrible on her. SHE HAS A BODY PEOPLE! Give her something more flattering and she is the prettiest of all.
Inoue Rei How can you work such a terrible outfit girl? The hat is adorable, yet the dress (??) is urgh, noo. Y…

It has been announced that Taguchi Natsumi, member of Kobushi Factory, had her contract cancelled halfway by Up-Front Promotions.  There have been talkes between Taguchi, her parents and management about her behavior in the past few months. Due to her not taking the responsibility of her contract, management decided to cancel it all togheter.  Taguchi will leave Kobushi Factory and Hello!Project as of the 6th of december and Kobushi Factory will go on as a 5 member group. 
This is really sad, yet not suprising, news. Yesterday, I actually thought to myself: now that their tour is over, I wouldn't be suprised it she left. And just an hour later the announcement came along. I feel really bad for Kobushi Factory. They lost 3 members in a matter of months, due to disregard of their contracts or due to mental health.  Let's support them with all our hearts and hope they will come out of this with their fists raised.
