Member of Base Ball Bear and idol critic Koide Yusuke, up-and-coming beat maker and idol fan tofubeats, and writer Namba Kazumi. We got these three to talk on the subject of “your five favorite Hello! Project singles of all time.” What do they think are the best singles…!?
Namba: So, since this book is about the singles of Hello! Project, we’ve been tasked with talking about our five favorite singles.
Koide: Every era has its gems. I have a feeling this is going to be a tough roundtable.
tofubeats: Do we really have to limit ourselves to just five…?

Kudo Haru-chan has called the wota “jicchan” (“grandpas”) in a private conversation. Audio of that conversation leaked and that’s why Kudo wota are now all called jicchan.

I’ve pretty much only just learned the names of everyone from Momusu, °C-ute and J=J! But I think Ayumin and Karin-chan are cute.

When Berryz Koubou was formed, Nacky didn’t quite understand the particulars at first so she just randomly showed up to their rehearsal out of the blue.

If you walk past another wota at your hotel, there’s a slight nod of recognition.

My current girlfriend is a huge H!P fan (Airi wota)… I checked out some of their videos and I thought Momochi was really cool in Buono! My girlfriend is constantly asking me to attend a concert together, but I don’t know… It seems scary…

No one will be looking at you or your girlfriend.

There’s lots of couples in attendance these days.

There are quite many.
Looking at them makes me pissed off though.

When it’s a couple, I always feel bad for the guy because he doesn’t look like he’s cheering for his oshi at 100%.

In an MC, Ayacho ordered everyone to put their arms around each others’ shoulders during “Tomo yo.” And not only just for the final concert — she specifically said that she wants everyone to do it during “Tomo yo” every time they perform it. She said that if you ask the person next to you if it’s okay to put your arm around them and they say no, it’s okay to tell them that “it’s an order from Ayacho.“

It’s been over nine months and I still can’t get over it. I’m now a °C and Musume DD, but every time I go to a Hello!Con it’s like “ah… Berryz isn’t here…“

I felt like I’d gotten over it. I even found a new non-Berryz member to care about and everything. I felt like I was fine, so I started watching the Budokan concert but I just couldn’t and I turned it off right away. I can tell that even though I’m fine for the most part, I still have them hidden deep in my heart and it’ll take years before I can truly get over them.

I’ve had a hole in my heart ever since the day I graduated from being a wota.
