Oh damn. That’s pretty blunt.

This is the first time I’ve seen him state it that clearly.
I want to know if he had anything to do with the selection of 12th gen.

So it was creative differences with the office… (laughs)

Oh man. I really wish I hadn’t read that. I don’t feel good about this. And I’m not saying that while trying to blame either side.

With all that said, I do constantly worry about the mental well-being of the members.
H!P needs you.

Maybe the office felt that the EDM stuff was pushing it too far?

It definitely felt like Tsunku had become too arrogant and this was like a form of severe punishment from the company president for that arrogance.

Judging from the interview, it’s just like everyone thought: he really didn’t have much at all to do with the group after 11th gen.
25: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/06/20(水) 22:32:14.66 0.net
Yeah. He does say he no longer knows much about the current members’ personalities.

What’s up with the fact that the pace of new single and album releases only got slower after Tsunku stepped down? Having multiple songwriters instead of just one person who’s in charge of everything… How is it possible for it to be slower now?

They must’ve realized it’s not profitable to keep constantly pushing out so many new releases.

A recent tweet from Tsunku♂ that went viral:
つんく ♂@tsunkuboy 6月17日
I’ve been a bit busy so I haven’t actually watched the show yet, but I saw all of your tweets about it. Having to answer the questionnaire from the program, it was necessary for me to shine the spotlight on certain individual members.
But there’s something I wish to express here. And that is: in these 20 years since the beginning of the group, there was never a time when the group consisted only of a single person. If even one member hadn’t been there, the group wouldn’t be where it is today.

You don’t see comments like this from the office-side much as of late.
This kind of thing seems to get a reaction especially from the younger newcomer fans.

It feels like ever since Tsunku left, Hello Con no longer has that same sense of “togetherness.”
487: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/06/21(木) 00:03:38.95 0.net
The Tsunku threads always get so many replies. After he stepped down, you just don’t see this kind of passion on the board anymore.

When Tsunku was the producer, most of the lyrics would be written specifically for them. He’d get hints by asking the H!P members directly about their school lives and stuff.
577: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/06/21(木) 00:53:59.84 0.net
The H!P members themselves still all yearn for Tsunku to come back.

I still remember immediately noticing when the “produced by Tsunku♂” disappeared from the concert intros.

The wota always read too much into things and so they’ll say stuff like how the office and Tsunku are now on bad terms or whatever, but I really don’t think that’s the case at all. The H!P wota just think too much about these things.

Instead of spending so much time on H!P, I personally really think he ought to prioritize the time he spends with his family. But then on the other hand, Terada has earned every right to criticize the office. So I see no problem here.

They really ought to at least make him an on-location advisor instead of just keeping him around as the sound producer. Like the man himself said, he’s worried about their mental well-being — at least let him be in communication with them. At least then he could write the members’ graduation songs specifically for them. I bet that’d make the members themselves happy, too.

Speaking purely for myself, I’m a big fan of Tsunku-san’s personality and his music. But as to the question as to would all fans be happy with Tsunku coming back and producing everything again like he did in the past? Just think back to how it was in ’14 — the answer is: no, no they wouldn’t. However, as he said in the interview, Tsunku is very worried about the members’ mental well-being. The fact that he’s no longer involved makes me worried about the members, too.
As for Tsunku and the office’s differing opinions as to the direction of Hello! Project, could that have mostly to do with the music and the whole Cool Hello thing? Don’t you feel that these days there just aren’t enough of the songs where the members get to just fool around?

While it may not have been the entire reason, I do think a big part of it really was his health. It’s cancer we’re talking about here. My old man died of cancer, so I know full well how scary it can be. Of course they want to have him take it easy for a while — he lost his voice, after all. This is the same guy who said “I can keep going, I can keep going” as his voice got raspier and raspier, before finally they had to take out his vocal cords entirely. Rewatch the 2013 Countdown Live — his voice sounds terrible there. You can’t say his health had nothing to do with it at all.

It couldn’t have been an easy decision. I’m sure the office considered carefully Terada’s health before deciding whether to have him continue with H!P or not. Still, it’s only natural that Terada would be left with a sour taste in his mouth, feeling like he had been kicked out.

Morning Musume’s singles always have at least one Tsunku song… but I bet we’re not far off from getting singles without any Tsunku songs at all.
