This is a good place to stop.
If there is one thing about me that I’m sure readers of the site, both old and new, are aware of, it’s that I am and have always been an admirer of Tsunku♂ and his music.
I first got into Hello! Project in 2007. Now, looking back, I think it’s fair to say that my active fandom of it effectively ended back in late 2014 with the departure of its producer. Ever since then, I’ve felt that I have been running this site mainly as a kind of tribute to his legacy.
Now, five years later, I feel it’s finally time for me to call it a day.
2019 is nearly behind us, and thus it’s time to look back and see what the year had to offer. While you’re at it, feel free to check out the best of 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018!
Please note that this list is not in order of best to worst. It’s simply a list of what I thought were 10 of the best 2ch threads posted on Wota in Translation this year, in the order they were published.
Did I miss anything? What were your favorites from 2019?
What are some great lesser-known
Morning Musume songs?

I went back and listened to stuff from a little bit before the Platinum Era and there seemed to be some pretty good songs in there. Give me some more good ones.

Every song on the first album.

If it’s a song they often perform live but that wasn’t a single, does that alone make it lesser-known? How well-known can a song be before it’s not “lesser-known” anymore?

Buy both of the coupling collections.
Seriously, like 80% of the songs on there are good.

Even though it’s been years he still remembers her.

Sanma (talking to Yokoyama): “You don’t look anything like Kamei.“

Akashiya Sanma remembers Kamei Eri-chan!!!!!!

Well, I mean… Eririn is cute.

Lots of people have even said that she looks like IMALU (Sanma’s daughter), so of course he remembers her.

Rather than allowing photos or such, they need to put H!P music on streaming services…
I want to listen to all those old songs and have others listen to them, too…

Most artists already do this.

Allowing people to listen to the music for free wouldn’t profit the company.
As an idol agency, it must be pretty low on their list of priorities.
33: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/12/20(金) 17:56:05.46 0
On the contrary, with such a huge catalog of old songs, Up-Front should definitely do this.
11: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/12/20(金) 12:45:11.64 0
Not for free, but for a fixed amount. It’s not a huge amount of money, but the company would get paid depending on the plays they get, so it definitely wouldn’t be a minus for them. And above all else, it would be a gateway for people who are curious. Not allowing streaming services is like keeping that gateway closed.

I want to especially hear about pairs that spent many years together.

I liked Aya/Kanon the best.
There was something intense about that pairing.

This has been the one for me too in the recent years.

Maimi and Chinami.
If there’s any coupling out there that surpasses this one, I’d like to know about it.
17: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/07/21(日) 23:27:43.95 0
Apart from Yanagawa/Funaki, I don’t know of any other recent pairings that both the people in it have publicly acknowledged.
