You know, I just really love the music that Tsunku♂-san makes.
I’m reminded of this every time we’re in rehearsal.
Every single sound…
All the lyrics…
They all hit me so hard.
I mean, in the good sense of the word of course.
I really love his music.

When I heard Musume’s Get you!, I couldn’t help but have this feeling that it was some other group singing it. Ultimately, it’s the Tsunku songs that suit Musume the best.
1. カラフル名無しさん 2017年08月10日 09:26 ID:vlEHHULC0
I love his songs, too! I was away from H!P for the longest time, but playing Rhythm Tengoku just got me feeling more and more nostalgic about it, so I came back! (laughs)
2. カラフル名無しさん 2017年08月10日 09:44 ID:wYthLXsD0
I so get that. When I was just your average junior high schooler with no knowledge of H!P, I’d find myself weirdly liking those Inazuma Eleven songs and getting perfect scores on all the Rhythm Tengoku songs. It was inevitable I’d end up hooked on H!P. (laughs)
3. カラフル名無しさん 2017年08月10日 10:05 ID:L50v23Re0
I totally understand what Maa-chan is saying. I love Tsunku♂-san’s songs, too. I wish he’d return as H!P’s producer. I want to put together a written petition and send it to H!P.
4. カラフル名無しさん 2017年08月10日 13:28 ID:UxYF191Q0
Honestly, when their sales started to drop I was thinking they really ought to try some other songwriters. But then when they actually did, the lyrics just didn’t have nearly the same punch to them. The only lyricists I like are Ameko and that Akai Kouen person. But then again, I guess even Terada won’t write songs like that anymore.
7. カラフル名無しさん 2017年08月11日 08:57 ID:Aucun.Ds0
He replied to a fan asking about it that while he has been writing brighter songs for Musume, they’re always turned down. I believe he’s still completely capable of writing all kinds of different songs.
Tsunku songs are great, but they’re also way too difficult to sing in karaoke.
3. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2017年08月10日 01:09 id：6EL82W5n0
Completely agreed, especially now that Tsunku songs have become so scarce.

I was just listening on shuffle and it went from “Jealousy Jealousy” to “Itsumo to Onnaji Seifuku de.” The breadth of his material really is amazing. A lot of people seemed to dislike “Seishun Kozou” when it first came out, but I loved it from the first time I heard it and I still can’t get sick of it. ♪ I also like “Tokyo to Iu Katasumi de.”

It’s been eight years since I started listening to H!P and I just can’t seem to get bored of it. I wish H!P continues to go on forever so more and more people can find out about Tsunku’s songs.

Maa-chan has a good sense of rhythm so it’s no wonder she likes Tsunku-san’s songs. On an MC during this past Spring tour she was saying how “it’s our job as Morning Musume to convey Tsunku-san’s songs to you.” Tsunku-san must be someone really special to Maa-chan!
“I’m glad I got to stand beside Tsunku♂-san.”
1: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/08/17(木) 23:43:16.92 0.net
I’m now going to say something I’ve been wanting to say for the looongest time!!
Is it okay for me to say this?
Well, I will.
For the longest time, I’ve felt like I still don’t fully understand Tsunku♂-san. I’m still unable to sing his songs while fully getting the rhythm. I’m still not able to clearly explain some of his lyrics. I’m just not there yet. That’s how I feel. (And it’s not just a feeling either.)
Recently on our Naruchika and Spring tours I got to sing many of his songs, and I’ve been talking to lots of people about how “this song is very Tsunku♂-san like” or how “this thing reminds me of Tsunku♂-san.“
In doing so, I realized something…
Compared to other artists, the variety in Tsunku♂’s songs is on a whole other level! It’s to the point where, honestly, it made me feel that if one of his songs started playing, I might not even be able to tell if it was written by him or not. Tsunku♂-san has written so many different songs. It’s impossible to see a clear pattern. So often when I hear a new song of his, I’m like “woooowww, no way! （≧∇≦）” His repertoire is so huge it’s amazing.
I’ve never once gotten bored of Tsunku♂-san’s music — my friends and family call it “Tsunku♂ Magic.”
I’m glad I got to stand beside Tsunku♂-san as part of Morning Musume.

She might be the last Musume member who has that air of having been sent directly from Tsunku. And to think how just a while ago we also had Sayashi, Michishige, Tanaka… Time sure flies by fast.

I know it’s nothing but a distant dream, but…

So Maa-chan doesn’t have anyone she’s close to within H!P.

Maa-chan is the one who most “gets” the entertainment aspect. She’s not the natural airhead she was in the past; now she does what she does intentionally. The question is: will she be able to put that something into words and convey it to others?

1. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2017年10月25日 08:15 id：.H2Mb89r0
Rather than being “proud,” I think it’s more that she just really loves H!P and Tsunku-san. (laughs) This made me like her even more. I was surprised about her Rikako statement.
9. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2017年11月01日 01:03 id：sKtNn3NW0
That’s a statement one couldn’t have made unless one truly loved the music of H!P and Tsunku♂-san. I have only the highest expectations for Maa-chan.
4. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2017年10月25日 12:12 id：6quD3Liv0
That’s a wonderful dream to have, Maa-chan.
