Thank you for these past 12 years. You were all very cool, cute, powerful, beautiful, and dazzling until the very end. Your final concert made us forget that this was the end. Thank you for being such enchantingly cool seniors to me!
If I’m being honest: for me, Hello! Project ended today.
I’m going to treasure its memory in my heart forever.

You’re awful, Mano-chan…
… I actually quite mean it. (laughs)

Saying it like it is. Manly.

Even the H!P “signboard” is different from before.

Hey, Momoko’s still there!

Mano-chan and Momochi, both being the loners they are, used to be close enough friends that they’d always eat together at Hello! Cons. So I forgive her.

They’re so close with Momochi, she probably doesn’t even really see her as being “H!P.”

The Platinum devotees, too, are all lamenting how it’ll now be down to just Ayacho.

She just means that they were the last members she knew from before she joined.

It’s pretty sad to think how much things have changed in just six years.

I do feel like there are quite a lot of people that feel the same way as Mano-chan — me included. Well, there’s still Momoko.

As expected of the person in charge of the “ma” in Mobekimasu.

I like how Mano-chan is always so direct with her statements. If we’re being honest, the Berikyuu wota are all thinking the same thing. Or, I guess we have until 6/30.

So it’s not “°C-ute no minna” but “°C-ute-san,” huh. Reminds me of when they were at an event before her debut and Maimi and Maimai forced Mano, who would only call the latter by the name of “Hagiwara-san,” to call her “Mai-chan.”

It’s fun how Mano-chan is always making these statements that make everyone go “you’re awful, Mano-chan…” (laughs)

That’s an opinion no one who’s still with H!P would dare to say out loud.
137: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/06/12(月) 23:21:07.99 0.net
Well, yeah. I get what she’s trying to say.

H!P for me ended with Eririn’s graduation though.

These people who have been there for 15 years of H!P’s 20-year history will be gone… This is bad.
166: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/06/12(月) 23:22:50.21 0.net
Yeah, I get what she means to say: “Hello! Project (the one I was a part of) ended today.“
Still, though: you’re awful, Mano-chan. (laughs)

She spoke from the heart.

These words if anything are something you should’ve kept in your heart, Mano-chan. (laughs)

That’s way too honest. (laughs)

Mano-san just posted her counterargument on Twitter.
“Why would you say a thing like that?”
“There’s no need to say that.”
“Then what is H!P to you, going forward?”
I received some messages like this. Maybe I wasn’t able to articulate myself clearly… How should I put it? I think what I mean is: this thing I’d previously looked up to and admired ever since I was little, has now become something I instead watch over warmly.
Also, since I wasn’t able to become as cool as my seniors when I was still a member, I feel like I have to do my best to try and do that through my current work! I feel truly grateful to my seniors who allowed me the experience of walking down the path of an idol.

Reminds me of Yoshizawa’s graduation concert when Gaki-san said “the Morning Musume I knew is ending.“
17. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月14日 00:06 ID:EbxP4N7Y0
I think it was Zukki who said something similar at Michishige’s graduation.
8. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月13日 18:00 ID:NRe9UHeX0
This just shows the level of the sense of loss she feels. I get it.
2. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月13日 16:39 ID:kerxuV.n0
I wish she wouldn’t have said something like this, even if only for the sake of the current members of H!P. To some of them, this must feel like they’re being disavowed.
14. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月13日 20:12 ID:W2y70aL60
H!P wota always demand so much from the members, even though the wota themselves are constantly saying whatever the hell they like and dragging H!P down with them.
15. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月13日 20:45 ID:sITdI31c0
But I agree with Mano-chan.
18. カラフル名無しさん 2017年06月14日 00:48 ID:clpdHcSm0
There are lots of people talking about how H!P will change in a major way in July, so I feel like the H!P we’ve known up until now really is ending.
Henkka: You’re awful, Mano-chan.
… But it’s my favorite kind of awful.
Got to love Mano’s awfulness
See, it’s not even insulting when Manoeri does it; it’s just her being blunt.
Her rephrasing herself even proves she simply didn’t mince her words. Which is all the better ’cause it forces fans to think more beyond being either polite or vile. Like, unless it were a lie, there can be no bitterness from what she said loll
Any girl that looks THAT good while eating spaghetti can pretty much say whatever she wants and I’m ok with it.
You are awful Mano-chan xD seriously though I get what she is saying, it does feels like the end of an era, and I feel really sad at times when I think I will never get to see Momusu’14 again or ªC-ute, or how even if I love Angerme, I miss 4-nin Smileage as well, but there’s still thinks I’m looking forward to! I really can’t wait to see what they decide to do with the KSS and Yanamin, Chii-chan and Funaki!
What will become of the six rounin?
As always, Berryz is forgotten by most fans :'(
But seriously… Momoko’s still there! So at least we have a tiny big part of old H!P with us… T_T
I get what she means though. As someone who became a fan of h!p around her debut… All the girls of that time are gone. Soon it’s only Ayacho left. The h!p I fell in love with is gone. H!p is still there, but for me, there will never be the same excitement about it. I guess it’s time for me to move on.
Just from a speaking and writing perspective, she should have worked more on her phrasing. Being blunt is perfectly fine, but there’s a way to be straightforward that does not leave room for confusion or insulting interpretations the way her initial statement did.
That being said, I disagree with her sentiment as much as I can as an outsider that would never have the same view as someone that worked within. My excitement for Hello! Project lives on even if it has evolved and taken new forms. So long as there are no massive drastic changes, I will be sticking around into the forseeable future.
Who is a mere mortal to argue with ‘Ferrus’ Mano Erina?
As a fan of H!P who got into it before Mano’s audition, I’m laughing.
Does anyone know if she is in a relation?
And does she speak English?
