So, about Taiyou to Ciscomoon…
1: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)21:55:27 ID:???
Educate a newbie. What were their fans like? Who was the most popular member? Feels like it might’ve been Kominato.
2: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)21:56:21 ID:???
I… really don’t know anything about them. Help us out, old-timers!
3: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:04:14 ID:???
The internet wasn’t that popular back then so this is just how it seemed to me at the time, but their fans were basically just the same people who were also supporters of Morning Musume. I watched them on ASAYAN all the way from before their members were selected, to them recording their songs, to the member reduction and name change. They had roughly the same amount of airtime on the show as Morning Musume did so it’s only natural that the Musume wota — or rather, the viewers — would cheer them on equally as much. That’s the way I remember it.
14: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:24:13 ID:???
Oh, I see. That’s kind of hard to imagine with all the lolicon wota these days. (laughs)
15: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:34:31 ID:???
It’s not that they had exactly the same number of fans of course. It was Musume > Taishisu, but at the time it was like ASAYAN was Musume — there was no one who wouldn’t watch ASAYAN if they liked Musume, so it was only inevitable that those people would also see Taishisu’s struggles, hear their songs, etc, considering they were also produced by Tsunku and all. To put it in a nutshell, it was easy to get interested about them.
4: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:04:48 ID:???
Their songs were great. Their debut is an awesome album.
7: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:08:28 ID:???
Sorry, I only became a fan with the 10th gen joining. I can’t even tell apart Melon Kinenbi from Taiyou to Ciscomoon.
6: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:07:47 ID:???
I wonder who the most popular one was… I think it might’ve been Shinoda.
8: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:14:09 ID:???
The popularity was probably something like:
Inaba > Kominato > RuRu > Shinoda.
Inaba was a member of Osaka Performance Doll and she used to even be on a game show with Ijuuin.
9: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:15:04 ID:???
Seriously? Inaba was the one I cared about the least back then. (laughs)
10: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:20:01 ID:???
Really? I was sure Kominato would’ve been no. 1 by far.
By the way, I personally fell for RuRu when I was looking at some old pictures of her.
She has a great figure, she sings well, she’s beautiful and she’s just all around really talented.
16: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:36:31 ID:???
Yep, I think that’s probably the way it was. Inaba was the quickest in terms of learning their songs and dances. They were saying she was too good even, so they made her Nakazawa’s manager. Kominato, on the other hand, was a good singer but I remember her having trouble with their dances since she was inexperienced. They even released one song without her because her dancing was so bad.
18: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:45:23 ID:???
I’ve always wondered why they did that one song with just the three of them. So it was because she was so bad at dancing, huh.
19: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:47:43 ID:???
Inaba becoming Nakazawa’s manager and Kominato being taken off that song were written about in an ASAYAN book. It was like pro wrestling back then.
11: つんく回復祈願中。。。◆n/7caLIPGc 2014/04/26(土)22:20:29 ID:???
I remember some weird, world-famous foreign(?) producer crying because they were so touched seeing a performance of Everyday Everywhere.
12: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:21:33 ID:???
Are there any videos of Taishisu singing songs from other H!P groups?
13: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:22:45 ID:???
I remember being happy with how the singles would come with a cool remix of the previous one. I still have them all at home. (laughs)
17: 名無しさん 2014/04/26(土)22:43:47 ID:???
I realized how ridiculous I’d been all along after coming to know Taishisu, being so obsessed about my idols being virgins.
24: 名無しさん 2014/04/27(日)00:08:16 ID:???
H!P was viewed as just this half-serious group of idols at the time it started, but Taishisu, on the other hand, was created to be not an idol group but a dance & vocal unit. I don’t think the members individually had that many fans.
30: おーぷん＠名無しさん 2014/04/29(火)22:32:04 ID:???
I heard that RuRu is famous in Taiwan whereas in Japan she’s like “who’s that?” league.
1. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2014年04月27日 17:36
I did know about them since Musume were so popular, but actually seeing how great of a singer RuRu was on ASAYAN was a huge shock for me. I’s not like I knew much about singers or anything — Kate Bush was pretty much the extent of my knowledge back then — but I was still thinking to myself “holy crap, she’s amazing!”
2. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2014年04月27日 18:49
RuRu’s a good singer, but she did occasionally have trouble with keeping time when singing in Japanese.
3. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2014年04月28日 09:03
Honda RuRu had lots of fans back then, but I was always more about Kominato mama. Ever since her my oshi members have always been the ones who give off a sort of feeling of maternal love.
T&C’s Kominato Miwa was cute, right?

She would’ve been my oshi if she hadn’t already been married. Well, it deserves to be said that she’s also the person who taught me the greatness of married women though.

Kominato-san seems like the type to be well-liked by wota.
3. 名無しプロジェクト 2013年12月18日 01:03 ID:UxW6eMuC0
If I had to name just one, I’d say Uchuu de La Ta Ta. Runner-ups would be Tsuki to Taiyou, Mata Yacchatta ~Shibuya de ALL no Hi~, Don’t STOP Renaichuu and ENDLESS LOVE, I think. But that’s just me. Taishisu has so many good songs so I’ll be glad if Juice=Juice goes that route.

Taiyou to Ciscomoon had the best vocals of any H!P group past or present. One of the rare groups where all of the members were good singers. Every now and then they’ll do covers of their songs which are fine in their own right, but at the end of the day they don’t hold a candle to the originals. I don’t get why people are going on about the vocal prowess of current H!P.
2. 名無しプロジェクト 2014年05月18日 09:57 ID:OlgKzRHP0
Taiyou to Ciscomoon on the Countdown Live Blu-ray were awesome. Matsuura was great of course, but I was expecting just as much so she didn’t surprise me. Taishisu, on the other hand, really did. They could both dance and sing and the songs were good, too. It made me think they could’ve really gotten big if it wasn’t for their looks. (laughs)
I was still young back when I was watching Momusu on TV and when I saw Taishisu, I remember just thinking to myself “Who are these girls? Another derivative unit?” I really regret it now.
Henkka: Finally, some recent T&C-related tweets from Kominato. Because why not?

I think I’ve only heard one song of theirs so far… they were around just long enough to get one song from their last release on the first Petit Best.
This is some crazy timing. Yesterday, I was watching that Linked Horizon Bravely Default concert and there was that one singer who had this particular feeling about her. I looked her up right then and found out that she was Kominato Miwa and part of Taiyou to Ciscomoon.
I thought I should get around to finally checking out their music, so this will get me started. Thanks a lot, Henkka!
I still remember watching early Asayan ep where each of them were sent to America to study before the group’s debut. Sure brings back old school Hello!Project, before the name was coined. I only got a notice of them actually during the first shuffle groups – checking out who’s who.
Thanks for the translations, Henkka!
I’ve been around the fandom for awhile but to this day i still can only recognize Inaba by face in this group and thats only because of stuff like Utaban when they focused on shuffle groups… Those were funny ass episodes though, aint to many shows ever been as funny as Utaban when H!P idols were the main guest
Look down all of Tsunku-san’s creation was totally amazing!! I once looked the Taishisu performance back then in MM GE days, full of performances.. I think they’re not an idol, but Performance Group to be exact. They’re remind me of TRF back then.
They were glorious! Definitely the best singers in H!P history <3 I can't remember what song of theirs I heard first though I have a feeling that is was Gatamekira :) I'd say Gatamekira & Everyday Everywhere are my favourites :)
I’ve always wondered what other people thought of T&C Bomber! A lot of their music aged well, and I’m happy their songs are still performed at H!P concerts. (Some of my favourite songs are Tsuki to Taiyou, Uchuu de Latata, and Endless Love.)
They were fantastic at the Countdown Live, but I hope they can do a full reunion with Ruru sometime!
I remember liking RuRu’s chinese music before I even knew about H!P. After I became an H!P fan, I was really surprised to see her in it.
Ever since I saw that H!P shuffle performance of Magic of Love a couple months (?) ago, I instantly fell in love. That had to have been one of the best shuffle units in a long time, in my opinion.
