Yajima, all alone, was feeling anxious at the audition venue. Then, suddenly, someone she didn’t know approached her from behind, going “heeeey!” and slapping her on the back. This person went, “let’s be friends!” And so they did become friends as they happily passed the audition together. That friend is someone who she is still close with even today: Tokunaga.

Mano-chan and Momochi. Momochi doesn’t appear in public anymore, but she still wanted to come and give her blessings to Mano-chan at her wedding. So to protect her privacy, neither Mano-chan nor her husband have publicly shown any pictures from their wedding reception. That’s true friendship even outside of business.

Sayu, feeling anxious about having been appointed as the leader, told Eririn about her worries. So Eririn emailed her back: “you’re fine just the way you are.” But then Eririn sent Sayu another email right after. “No, I got that wrong. It’s not that you’re fine just the way you are. You’re fine because you are the way you are.“

When I watch the footage from Kamei Eri’s graduation concert when the performance ends and backstage(?) she immediately runs over to Michishige Sayumi and starts bawling her eyes out…
I genuinely feel like that right there was true friendship.
Henkka: There’s been lots of great friendships in Hello! Project throughout the years. Some real connections. I think my personal favorite was this one:
“ 128: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/07/22(月) 00:01:19.69 0
I like Miyamoto/Uemura the best.
Budokan 2017 was their pinnacle.”
lol i hope this person saw the recent concert
Ayumin said at the concert that, now her best friend named “Yamaki Risa”.
P.S. GAM’s BG in comment box thou. ❤️❤️
My favourite right now is Kaga/Yokoyama.
All time favourites will always be KameShige and Riho/Kanon.
What about Yokoyan/Kawamuu?! they really seem close even outside lf work.
When was that Ayaya/Mikitty photo taken? It looks quite recent.
SayuEri or YanaFuna have my vote.
The picture is from 2011. They were in Florida shooting for a TV show, but it was never broadcast because of the Tohoku earthquake.
Yana/Funa is life
This is a bit different than the “working” relationships most of those posts were about, but Nakanishi and Mano only overlapped in H!P for about a year and a half and not even sharing a group, but remain very close now nearly 7 years further on.
I feel the lack of Ayacho and Harunan is disrespecting lol
Definitely one of my favorites. I feel the members who are close with someone from their own group is kind of a given. When the two are from different teams, especially teams that don’t interact a lot, I feel it’s so much more special.
What about Takagi/Yoshizawa?
> as well as Funaki’s blog in regards to Shimamura.
I think you meant yanagawa
Indeed I did. Fixed. Thanks!
Not one mention of old school pairing Rika Ishikawa and Ayumi Shibata? They were always adorable and still occasionally post pictures together. Post graduation there’s also been a fair bit of Maimi/Nacky, which I approve of.
I thought Matsuura was Nakazawa in that top picture.
Must’ve been when she was battling that illness.
No mention of Shuwapoku, Riho and Maachan.
Is Hennka trying to imply that Riho-Metal is on the lamb but she ain’t no sheep?
No PonPon ? o_o”
No Ayacho/Harunan ?? o_o””
I also feel Homare/Mei will become a big thing in few years…

Ikuta was the only one who ever called Sayashi by “Riho.”
This was by far the most underrated friendship in the H!P, Ikuta and Sayashi were sneakily and quietly extremely close
Was there any proof of that ? I remember riho explaining they didn’t talk much, but they weren’t in bad terms. That’s all i know
Judging by their twitter posts, Maro and Meimi are also quite close nowadays.
All I can think of is Reina crying her eyes out during Junjun’s graduation. I also loved the Sayu/Koahru pairing, especially knowing that they actually hated each other.
Oh, and W.
OzeChii, Aari/Karin and SayuEri are my all time faves.
But I will always have a soft spot for Aibon/Gomaki. Aibon was actually closer to a gyaru like Gomaki when she first auditioned, she was quite mature and didn’t speak in the cutesy baby talk she was known for later. While the rest of the girls were talking about school sports and family, Aibon was talking about her favorite brands being Prada and Gucchi lol. It was inevitable they’d get along because they had similar backgrounds. Wota noticed something was up with Aibon during the last few days of the H!P summer tour in 2002, she was crying during performances and looking distant during MCs. Years later we find out Gomaki told Aibon alone about her graduation days before it was officially announced and Aibon couldn’t hold back her emotions.
It’s a shame they didn’t get to perform with each other during the 2018 H!P summer concert, I would’ve loved to see them sing I WISH.
These three are the most perfect friendships and they were all entangled.
Tsuji and Kago
Chinami and Momoko
Maasa and Yurina
Maimi and Chinami
C-ute’s last lineup as a group
JunJun and Reina
Sayu and Eri
Sayu and Reina (I loved the dynamic between those two when they were the oldest members)
Aichan and Gaki
Yossy and Rika
Mitsui and MaiMai
Ayacho and Haruna
Taguchi and Rena
Mizuki and Erina
Yanamin and Funaki
There are so many wonderful dynamics and friendships within Hello!Project.
Kumaazu still go out together often and do events together almost 5 years after Berryz’ hiatus, they’re definitely up there in classic H!P duos.
Kanatomo and Sayuki are one of my favorite duos. I hope they sing a duet sometime. If they were to graduate I think it’d be fitting if they did it together.
