  1. Not many totally hit the mark, but quite a few are in the right area. And ohh man, I think I could go for Manotheremin.

    I like the addition of the background image in this text box.

  2. Ah… some of these make me a little sad. I wish number 169 (“Mano Erina’s overseas tour a huge success!”) had been right. She did perform overseas, but nothing that you could call an actual overseas tour, especially for us Europeans. She mentioned in 2009 that the country she most wants to visit is Finland.

  5. I first thought I was hallucinating when I saw the background image of the text input field.

    That lack of confidence. Heh.

    > You can finally get a 10-terabyte HDD with under US$100!
    I wish.

    Puns are always tricky to do after all.

    When will Berryz Koubou break up?

    Right until now, some people are asking the same question.

    Tsunku speaks on Miyabi’s second marriage.

    Somehow, these remind me of Miyabi’s line in Futsuu Idol song about a same age friend who became a mother.
    Anyway, what’s with Miya’s image that they had to made these comments?

    • I think this was around the time Miyabi had a mini type scandal thing. There were pictures of someone who looked like her with a guy, but nothing ever happened – well, some people said it was why it was a long time before she got to be center in a single, but I think it just wasn’t her/not a big deal.

      • I don’t think there was a doubt it was Miya, pictures proved that she had the same jacket as the “girl in the videos”. Oh well, I’m happy this scandal didn’t get much attention. What would’ve happened to Berryz then? :/

        • It was a really close call at the time. As I recall, Up-Front Agency quickly went into “damage control” mode and played down the pic as if it wasn’t Miyabi.


          However, anyone that saw the pics at the time (myself included) had to concede that it was definitely Miya. It was pretty disappointing as a fan, at the time, but thankfully Miyabi rebounded from that and hasn’t slipped up since. It was apparent since early on that they wanted to push Miya – largely due to her vocals – but this scandal delayed those plans. IMO it wasn’t until BUONO that Miya finally got seriously pushed

          • That scandal happened around the forth Buono’s single. Miya was already pushed at the time. UFA just ignored it I mean, she’s the main girl anyway.

            Just look at Kanna case that happen several month after Miya case. -> got fired

  8. A lot of these are surprisingly what people are actually talking about: Berryz graduation, “where is Eri?”, etc.

    Aika never got to be leader though :(

    To think that Miuna was the only one to survive that earthquake…”

    That’s messed up.

    So it’s been four years now since Eririn retired… what is she doing nowadays?

    Seriously, I wonder.

    Btw, nice background you put in the comment section Henkka.

    Melon Kinenbi will have become nothing more than an urban legend.

    Pretty much, highly doubt the new fandom has even heard of them

    Don’t remind me,i’ll cry thinking about it… You jinxed her you asshole

  13. just noticed the backgrounds in the comment section are randomized… This is better than wondering what prize you got in your happy meal or cracker jack box…. I got Shige-sama on my 2nd try, debating whether i want to post this and end up losing the picture of the cutest girl to ever exist :)

  14. What’s all this talk of pictures let’s see…. And seems like peeps actually wanted Takahashi to graduate, lol

  15. “Henkka: I still don’t know if I should’ve opted for the more direct “I’m As Big Of A Tobacco Smoker As I Am A Cock Smoker!” or even “I Love Sucking Nicotine As Much As I Love Sucking Dick!”

    The daily deliberations of a translator.”

    …I have to wonder what it literally translated to…I’m sure it’s pretty hilarious too =D

  16. Some of the predictions were true!! I realized back then in PE, was kinda “Static Period”, where all the members, releases, activities seemed to similar.
