Today was a bad day for all °C-ute fans.
This morning an announce was post on Hello Project Official Site. It was a message from Murakami Megumi, H!P kids & °C-ute member.
She said that she'll stop her activities as °C-ute & H!P member from now to concentrate on her studies & on a normal student life.
This announce was made few days after paparazzi takes photos of Megumi & & boy who supposed to be her boyfriend !
Photos was show on Internet only (not in magazine). but we can think that she leaves H!P before has the scandal. On her message, she thanked Tsunku, staff & fans. If she was forced to leave by Tsunku, she would not thanked him. So I think it is her decision.
Let's continue wth bad news. The new Hinoi Team single is CANCELLED. Not even reported....
The kaisan is for soon. Asuka can't wait for her solo career. Let's wait for a single for later of for a graduation.
But there was some good news today !!!!
1st, applause for Kusumi-chan's EXELLENT score on Oricon ranking : #8 with 28,132 copies sold !!!!
That's 10,000 copies better than Koi Kana ! Koharu is REALLY a miracle ! But what's the reason for her to make a so good score ? Because she gains popurality with Kirarin Revolution ? because the song is A LOT better than Koi Kana ? This 2 reason are Ok. For doing a great solo career Tsunku puts her in the MM's main singers. After Balalaika succes, we can expect a good score for MM too. Maybe on 40k for 1st week.
°C-ute did a great job too with 13,402 copies of their debut album sold. This is VERY good if we look at berryz' s album 1st week score (around 11K for each Berryz full album).
I don't look at other groups/Solo singer because it is not comparable.
Now Megumi is gone °C-ute will sell that well ? Not sure. She was a lead singer and pretty popular (but nos as Airi I think). Maybe their score will be baddest. maybe better ? Let's wait & see°C-ute DEBUT SINGLE !!!!!
Megumi announce it on her message ! °C-ute debut single is for February 2007 with 7 members. I really can't wait. °C-ute will have their 1st live tour in 2007 too. 4 concerts in 2 dates.
On an other hand, V-u-den new single cover was revealed today. Pretty weird no ? V-u-den always had strange costumes but THAT !!! Erika looks the best. Rika's hair just suck even she has a beautiful smile. And I have no opinion on Yui. She looks like other singles (prettier?). I really wonder what the will sound. Like Issai Gassai ? Or a ballad ? It is always difficutl to judge on a title & on a cover.
Always on H!P, someone listened to an UFA phone call saying there will be a new group by the end of the year: Sugaya Risako, Kusumi Koharu, Yajima Maimi. Group name: SKY.
It seems that Umeda Erika (SKU) or Suzuki Airi (SKA) are on the competition too. With the popularity ok Koha & Risako (because of her photobook) this unit will rocks !
