This marks the 90th Hello! Project shashinshuu that I've collected over the years and while various members have held onto the cute and adorable crown at different times very rarely does a pb come along that can ascend to the adorable throne with such ease and unquestionable authority~!
Momo has long been one of the most shining lights in Berryz Koubou and all of H!P and she's been a favorite member of mine since I first laid eyes on "Piririto yukou!" shortly after its release. She along with Miya and Riichan have pretty much dominated as my favorites in BK since I became a fan and if Maimichan defines "cute", then surely there should be a photo of Momo next to the definition of "adorable." ^-^
I was really anticipating this to be Momo's best shot pb yet as I just think that her hair is at such a perfect length right now~!…not too long and not too short! So many times we see idols go through…well questionable hairstyles and lengths which perhaps don't suit their facial features in the most optimum way so this is a plea to all H!P hairstylist or just "you" if there's only one lol!…to please stay away from Momo's hair!
And just in case anyone's forgotten what the dark side of Hello! Project's hairstylist(s) are capable of, this may refresh your memory on what history has taught us over the years…
Episode I The Hairstylist Menace: A young boy is found to be extraordinarily strong with the force and Gotou Maki cuts her hair and then shoots her first "Alo-Hello!" DVD. :O
Episode II Attack of the Scissors: It is found out that the little green one moves very quickly despite the use of a cane and Kamei cuts her hair and then releases her 2nd shashinshuu. :O
Episode III Revenge of the Hair: The little one now grown up must struggle between the darkness of really bad dialog & really bad acting while Gotou Maki's hair has now grown back to a nice long length. 🙂
Episode IV A New Hairstyle: The big bad one with asthma now rules the galaxy mercilessly while secretly building the most awesome haircutting device anyone has ever seen…the flobee and Ayaya cuts her hair shortly after joining GAM. :O
Episode V The Beauty Shop Strikes Back: Kamei finds out that Tsunku is her neighbor's uncle's half-brother's cousin's mechanic's good friend from down the street and Rikachan cuts her hair and Biyuuden releases their 7th single. :O
Episode VI Return of the Hair: A cast of thousands including a lot of Snuggle teddy bears help to restore peace and order in the galaxy and Kamei's hair is at the perfect length again. 🙂
Now is it possible to have a prequel to a prequel or an epilogue?….I shudder to think!
Getting back to Momo's latest shashinshuu…it's adorable perfection and I wonder just how long we'll have to wait until another such masterpiece is set before us……well I guess when she releases her next shashinshuu! Momo possesses a real natural sweet charisma about her and the uncanny ability to brighten up any room that she enters (much like Nacchi does)…and it really comes out in some notable photographs I think. Momo is = to Kamei; earth's most adorable! ^ ^
I rarely scan hard cover photobooks for the reason that it really can damage the book's spine and in some cases the book won't even lay flat afterwards but with some extra care I've managed to use my poor scanning ability >_< to share what I find to be some of my most favorite photos from Momo's "Momo no mi" collection. I hope you find your inner adorableness in them too~! Enjoy! ^-^
And then there's also the accompanying "making of" DVD which has a running time of approximately 15 minutes…yet to be watched but that will be remedied soon! ^ ^
