Fukumura: One thing is for sure: I think it’s a good thing that the 9th generation wasn’t just three people. I know it’s weird for me to say this, being one of them, but it really is a good thing that I was in that generation. (laughs)

Thank you, Fuku-chan.

It sounds kind of arrogant the way she puts it, but the fact of the matter really is that if it had been just Ikuta, Sayashi, and Zukki, it would’ve been such an uneasy atmosphere between them.

— Did you think that you two (Fukumura & Ikuta) would be the last ones of your generation to graduate?
Fukumura: No, I kind of didn’t. I did think, though, that Eripon would be the first to graduate. (laughs)

Fukumura: She might look like someone who would be quick to graduate. But she really feels the history of the group.
Ikuta: I actually did think Mizuki would probably be there at the end. I just can’t picture her after her graduation from Morning Musume. I definitely think I’m going to graduate first. It really does feel strange to think that I’ve already been in the group for eight years. But I do think that if the one remaining 9th generation member in the group with me wasn’t Mizuki but rather Riho or Kanon, then I would’ve already graduated. (laughs)

So she’s basically saying that it’s a good thing that the 9th generation was those specific four members? In that sense, I agree.

It’s like no one else around her was saying it so she had to say it herself. (laughs)

I do believe that if Fukumura hadn’t been there, we would’ve already lost all the 9th generation members. For better or for worse.

Fukumura is an apologist, but:
The leader has to be humble.
The leader can’t act boastful.
The leader must always downplay their own importance and praise others.
That’s something she must’ve learned from Takahashi and Michishige.

While I agree, I was kind of worried because of the number of statements she’d made that lacked any self-confidence. So I’m relieved to see her saying this.

I never felt any malice coming from Ikuta — she’s just honest.
113: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/10/26(金) 20:12:53.91 0.net
Yeah. For better or for worse, Ikuta is just too honest for her own good.

The current Morning Musume is there thanks to Fuku-chan.

Fuku-chan is the pillar of current Musume.
301: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/10/26(金) 21:02:15.74 0.net
Fuku-chan really knows how to say it like it is.
310: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/10/26(金) 21:05:31.24 0.net
Yeah, she’s absolutely right in saying that.

I actually feel relieved to see that Fuku-chan can now make a statement like that. She’s really grown. If anything, the leader should have this level of confidence.

If Fuku-chan hadn’t joined the group, I wouldn’t have become a wota either. So I’m glad she joined.
… I think?

Tsunku♂: “Fukumura is the “tranquilizer” of 9th generation.“
It wasn’t a mistake to put her in the group.
25: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/10/26(金) 19:40:02.49 0.net
Tsunku was worried about the youth and the general inexperience of the other three. That’s why she put Fukumura in the group. And he absolutely made the right choice.

I was about to say, it’s refreshing to see positive comments about Fukuchan that don’t involve her boobs, and then the last comment.
It’s her boobs’ fault.
Fuku-chan without boobs is like a day without sunshine.
Well, she has good boobs; perhaps the best ever in Hello! Project.
I humbly submit Musuboobs for your consideration.
Is she wrong??? No
Everyone calls her bland but she really is the heart of the group.
Yes MM’s current heart is bland
Nah, it’s management’s that’s the bland one lol
(you can’t have an interesting group when you force them to be boring)
Indeed. And around that heart?
Mizupon is the soul of this group.
So what’s next, henkka? Translating another heartbreaking sayashi thread soon? =(
Yes, expect some Sayashi content before the end of the year. But it’s positive in nature!
Placing comment #1 at the end totally worked. :)
In a way it’s nice to see some overlap in the sentiments of the Japanese and foreign fan base. We all love Fuku-chan’s boobs!
Practically speaking, it was a good idea to place an H!P egg in the mix with 3 newb kidz. That way Mizuki could reassure them that they could get through the harsh training conditions and they should not be discouraged.
The original thread vibe was very mean and cruel in nature, I’m glad the matome site picked the more insightful comments. 9th gen had good balance because of Fuku-chan being there.
She is very talented, beautiful and on top of that she is the one who loves the group the most. Morning Musume would not be the same without her. Fans should be more grateful that girls like her still exists.
All hail Fukuhime
9th-12th gens were garbage and a waste of time, money, space, and effort.
Yeah, how dare they outsell gens 5-8 by a 2-1 margin.
I disagree with that person too, but it’s not far to compare the two eras. Yossy and Ai-led Musume were when Japan was sick to death with idols. Not a single female idol group was in the Oricon top 20 from 2005 to early 2008 before Perfume and later AKB came in. The 2010s idol boom helped 9th gen MM onward.
It’s really not that humble of a thing to say, I think MM will move into a better future when she eventually graduates.
Her boobs aren’t very big, decent shape tho.
Yeah, it was nice she entered and stuff, but i think it’s time to graduate. not because i don’t like her, but the group lately feels boring with her (like… i want to see new group dynamics, like angerme and tsubaki factory) .
But I’m sure Up Front will let her stay until tsunku personally tells her to get out. (she’s a leader for 4 years and will surpass Ai-chan’s leadership time)
