On the contrary. It was dead-on my favorite era of them all.

Music-wise, it was my favorite era of them all, album songs included.
Although yeah, it did also feel like they were in this bind of hopeless stagnation.

Things were in all-out chaos until the end of 2007, but then with the next year’s Single Daizenshuu it felt like a new Momusu had finally started taking shape.

People like Goto and Matsuura were still appearing at Hello! Con.
All the Golden Era members were still there, if only just barely.

Haromoni@ feels nostalgic. (laughs)

Fujimoto Miki having the shortest tenure as a leader — 20-something days — in 2007. With Fujimoto’s withdrawal as the 4th leader, all the Golden Era members were gone from the group and Morning Musume became this group of “…who are these girls?” to the general public.
AKB’s first Kouhaku appearance was in 2007, and they started their namesake late-night TV show in January of 2008. In other words, you might say that 2007 marked the change in the top idol group of the country.

I was in junior high school and I remember taking purikura pictures while doing the “ue ue ☝️☝️” pose. My friends had all liked Morning Musume in elementary school, but now it was suddenly like no one cared…

They were all so cute and in perfect condition in “SEXY BOY.”
It has been 13 years since the release of
“SEXY BOY ~Soyokaze ni Yorisotte~”

It was the moment when Morning Musume reached their pinnacle, looks-wise.
To this day, no other moment has surpassed it.

They made them sing it wearing these outfits that looked like underwear.

Those camisole one-pieces, right?
For actual underwear, look up Berryz’ “Aa, Yo ga Akeru” and °C-ute’s best-of.

There are no objections to them having been at their looks-wise best in “Aruiteru,” is there?

I’m surprised by how Koharu was one of the members who originally sang this song.

It seems like people have re-evaluated this song as of late. Guess part of it has to do with that it’s eurobeat. There’s so many recent comments, too. And Gaki-san was saying how that simple-looking step they do in the dance is surprisingly difficult, although I don’t really get what she means by that.
53: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/02/27(水) 19:20:05.53 0.net
There are definitely songs that look easy, but when you actually try copying them you discover how they’re surprisingly difficult.
52: fusianasan 2019/02/27(水) 18:54:56.91 0.net
This song is way up there as one of my top favorites.
1. カラフル名無しさん 2019年03月08日 14:47 ID:6FDkTK870
There’s something about this song that just gets you excited.
2. カラフル名無しさん 2019年03月08日 15:06 ID:7e737tlg0
It’s such a fun song.
Everyone’s so cute in the music video, too.

Is the “sexy boy” Tsunku?
6. カラフル名無しさん 2019年03月08日 18:09 ID:z1lV8Bpz0
This was so cute, and yet at the time it wasn’t the least bit successful.
Even I personally completely missed it.
9. カラフル名無しさん 2019年03月08日 23:29 ID:i6o87GXX0
I still love this song. When the intro starts playing, the whole atmosphere at the venue immediately changes. I was at a dinner show once where, before the performance, they showed this footage of all the music videos released so far, summarized to about 30 minutes. It made me think to myself how, if they were to remake just one song with the current members, I’d wish for it to be this one.

The years of Haromoni@, still to this day my favorite Hello Project show. The girls looked cute with their weekly cosplay themes and moutube was awesome
This is about the time I became a momo/harowota so how could I forget?
Who else saw them at AX?
I still have my AX 2009 badge and Morning Musume ticket. Section: C Row: 17.
It was my first plane travel. More than 7 hrs flight.
Lot of good memories, but couldn’t make it to the handshake event sadly.
Sexy boy is one of my absolute favorite musume songs, that groove is to die for.
“Sexy Boy” is one of my least favorite Momusu songs, but my boyfriend loves it. I always try not to skip it when we’re together, since he gets sad if I do.
Is it just me, or does anyone else remember 9/11?
I refer to 2005-2007 as MM’s Twilight Era. They were just sloughing off Golden Era members, and it was clear that they had gotten out of touch with what the charts and the mainstream wanted.
But damn, if Tsunku wasn’t on fire, musically. Not only did MM do some of their finest genre singles, like Manpower, Iroppoi Jirettai, and EYN, but he was also giving Berikyuu some god-tier songs.
2008 is when Platinum Era started.
Sexy Boy is the truth. I was not a fan when this song came iut, but this is easily top 10 momusu songs ever imo. EYN is also up there..
