All I keep seeing is this Mobekimasu stuff and I just – I don’t care about that! It’s DONE. No more promotions where Momoko makes an idiot of herself trying to be Shige, no more performances where they pretend that dance isn’t completely ridiculous (stop bending over and shaking your butts when you’re wearing the huge skirts – you look silly)…
Mobekismasu will be fun at H!P concerts, but it’s DONE now. Do something else.
There is hope. I heard about a new S/mileage single. I heard and actually liked the preview of it. C-ute and Berryz are doing concerts together, I think. There was something about a movie too…
Momusu’s new single is supposedly called ‘Pyoko Pyoko Ultra’ which just sounds cracked-out and nonsensical. It’s an introduction single for the newest members, so hopefully they will get to do something. I hope it’s a little toned down from the craziness that was Ok Yeah (that was a little too much, even for me).
I don’t like doing these unfocused posts that basically list things. It doesn’t feel like me. It’s kinda funny that I couldn’t keep up last time I tried to post and now I can’t find anything to post about. Well, I can, I just don’t have any new stuff to comment on. It seems strange to me that so little seems to be happening, or rather that so much is just not even on the radar in H!P at the moment. This has been a roller-coaster year with almost constant change, but now it’s like they just need to rest for a moment. That, or Takahashi leaving has just caused some sort of panic and Mobekimasu is their way of distracting us while they rebuild.
Dramatic, but possible if you consider how much they relied on Ai’s voice and her star power.
Found this here, but I wanted to reiterate:
Momo needs to dial it down or Shige will just keep knocking her down by her FAYCE!
You were scary and now you’re just constantly vomit-inducing. The reason Shige is getting attention on variety shows is that she has been doing this ‘I’m the cutest’ thing for years. I don’t know if Momoko has, but I can never remember it being like this. The important difference isn’t really even the amount of years Shige has devoted to self-worship but to how she presents it. She doesn’t simper constantly and interrupt people to insert ‘yan’ into an incoherent sentence. Rather than an act she puts on, it is just a big aspect of her personality. She also has a sharp tongue, another personality trait that she just has kept quiet with until she felt comfortable enough to let it out.
Plus, she’s hawt.
Momo, you’re a good singer, a good dancer and you actually have fans who don’t consider you scary. Don’t alienate them by stealing an act and doing it wrong.
Maybe she’s going for a Yasuda Kei move. The more you embarrass yourself, the more they pick on you, the more screen-time you get. Maybe Momo is just a genius.
I am dying to see the newest Momusu generation in action, especially considering that little Egg (Haruka?) and how adorably bossy she was on Hello Pro Time.
Ishida: “I’m trying to eat here!”
Kudo: “Enough of that nonsense! Introduce yourself to the people! *huff* Amateurs…”
Then there is Ikubo Haruna:
Just for your information…
Everyone’s concern with her is that she’s sixteen (or is it seventeen?), but you SO SO need that right now. They can’t all be ten years old people! Momusu has always had younger girls, it’s true, but there has always been a decent mix of older and younger performers. Besides, it’s not like Iikubo will be a lead singer, so she has loads of time to get good at that. In the auditions she really seemed keen to get better at everything. I hope she keeps that enthusiasm.
*shrugs* That’s all I got for this one.
So, is this just me, or is there a lot going on that I am just missing?
