New Official Blogs!

September 10, 2012

H!P has finally opened blogs for the ninth and tenth gens of Momusu! This is fantastic news! It gives the public an even better glimpse into the daily lives of our favorite idols and will only serve to make us feel more connected with them and to get to know their personalities better.

As of this post, the blogs contain only greetings from each individual member, along with a cell phone photo. It’s not certain how often they’ll update, or if there’ll be a rotating schedule of who posts when, or if it will be first come, first posted. I’m sure management will be keeping a close eye on what goes through, especially with the younger members. Not that I suspect they’d post anything inappropriate, but we don’t want a repeat of the Uncle Hitler incident. (Seriously, where was management on THAT?!)

Momusu 51st single and more!

July 30, 2012

Recently Momusu have announced that they are in production for their 51st single. There has yet to be a release date, title, or theme announced, but expectations are high after the stellar sales of their 50th single. I expect this single to do slightly better than their previous sales of the past few years, but doubt they can keep the momentum of One・Two・Three as those sales were probably due to it being the 50th single and people buying several editions for collection’s sake.

In other news, Iikubo Haruna’s official image color has been changed from Chocolate Brown to Honey in an official announcement released this afternoon Japan Time. Speculation is this was to make it easier for people to find glow sticks to represent her at concerts. I tried doing a search myself but they don’t seem to exist. It’s a shame since I think the color suited her well. Whatever the case, I look forward to seeing her in her new color come the next single release!
