  1. Wow, from accepting new wota, booze and DARS, I love this entry. Oh and this,

    “I’m so happy, I went bald.” <—- Chayu Effect, lol

  2. Impressive! I like all the current members and wish them the best.
    Unfortunately h!p lost me musically a few years back, but I still cheer for the girls.

  3. After becoming a fan in 2001, there was always at least one member I was not terribly fond of, but I agree that this line up is entirely likable. I am so happy for the girls and hope this sense of accomplishment pushes their comeback even further.
    Seeing the wota so openly accept wota from other groups makes me proud to be a H!P fan <3 I am going to relish in all the happy feelings for a while LOL

    • I’m having a hard time really liking Riho. I think it’s mainly cause no personality has spawned yet.

        I know how you feel. I was kinda neutral to Riho too but she’s actually pretty charming and sweet. I kinda wish she would play up her natural smug smile into just a full on playfully arrogant character and then let her doofiness soften it out. “Ah~ It’s easy because I’m the best–” *stumble trips half over a chair* in the same way that Sayu played up her narcissist side… but that’s really because she’s only a half-shade away from being a perfect idol.

      • Then watch this and see her personality shine! :DD She’s so fun~ I actually love the fact that she’s the ace. She’s pulling it off very well.

  4. I knew Sakura would be the best thing to happen to Momusu when I first heard her voice.

    I pity the people who left the fandom just because Yasshi has been pushed to the center though. To hate a single member so much that you ignore Sakura’s amazing voice and the colorful personalities of the other members in the group… must take a lot of effort.

    • *Nodding*

      SHIT, reading this entry and a ninja cutting onions somewhere near me….I shed happy tears.

  5. OMG! Henkka you are a genius! Brainstorming lyrics are actually predicting everything! xD and i’m really extremely happy about all this

  6. Almost 100k on the first day!!! That means Momusu is officially back as an idol group Juggernaut, now can the media give them the same exposure as AKB or Momoclo, they deserve it..

    The sayu era may go down as one of the best eras in momusu history if their current streak of 100k sales continue in the future, this lineup is just so strong all around in looks, singing, variety talent and especially dancing…. There has never been a lineup capable of dancing at the level of the current momusu

    • Calm down Novakayne. Don’t get carried away. I am happy for them. I’ve decided to but a copy even thought I wasn’t going to.

    • “especially dancing…. There has never been a lineup capable of dancing at the level of the current momusu”

      Thank you for reminding me. I got to go back and watch that jaw-dropping Oricon Style vid.

  7. Can someone explain to me what Dentsu is?
    And this chocolate manufacture, are they connected to Mosume somehow? Or why is this Twitter Acc posting about their #1?

    • Dentsu is Japan’s largest ad firm, and one of the world’s biggest.
      As many n.1s, they fell into complacency, but recently got their act together back. They’ve managed to turn 2 former losers – Prime Minister Abe and Momusu – into winners! That’s no underachievement.
      After Abenomics, here comes Sayunomics! (Momusu will save Japan’s ailing economy, I’m sure)

  8. All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king

  9. Morning Musume has finally entered into another golden era.
    Heres hoping that it will last for a long time.
    P.S Its pretty awesome how Sakura’s singles are all number ones lol!

    Oda Sakura — the member who has experienced nothing but Oricon no. 1.

    A legend from the start.

    Rather than selling a million and feeling nothing, it’s way more fun being a wota to whom selling 100k gives a great joy.

    I want to put up this quote on a poster, frame it and hang this in my room.

  12. Beign a wota since 2006 (Age 12), I just feel like crying because I’m just SO happy! My 19th birthday is coming up and I’m definently celebrating this along with it XD even with my non-wota friends hahaha

  13. “33: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/28 19:11:18
    That’s 100k guaranteed. Will this be their biggest hit since 9th gen joined?”

    This could be their biggest hit since 6th gen joined.

  14. Ahhh I was waiting for a post like this to appear.
    So much positivity!

    And it just gets better from here. The media can’t ignore these numbers. Let the hype begin!

  15. I’ve loved the 3 latest generations from the git go. I would have been happy with just Momusu’s continued existence. I never really expected this resurgence in their popularity. But it DOES feel good. DOESN’T IT !?! And I’m so happy for Shige. She deserves it being like this during her stint as leader. If you don’t know why, you don’t know Shige like I know Shige.

  17. Judging by previous time-spans, I’m sure we can expect the next single before the end of January. It’ll have to be good of course, but it’s not crazy to predict it’ll be gold on day one.
    3025 more is all that’s needed.
