…oh I’m just kidding with that :P. In some ways I never imagined this ever happening but at the same time it makes perfect sense for a group resurgence to occur now with Gen. 9 Momusu ready to stir up and perhaps rejuvenate fan interest which always is most welcome and coincides whenever the buzz of new members are announced and set to debut~. While there’s no question that there’s been a steady drop off of fans in recent years which may be attributed to both a healthy dose of idol~girl group competition which is blossoming elsewhere as well as a lineup which had been perceived as going stagnant for some, Dream Momusu’s timing of an album release which looks to contain an array of reinterpretations of Momusu’s songs from their golden years and the like as well as a sizable tour already set to roll, I imagine there will be many fans from their earlier years looking to re~identify with the group and it can only add that much more excitement and intrigue of the new group lineup one would think as well. I’m really curious to see which songs they’ve chosen for the upcoming album and with just two songs out of the twenty being announced as new additions to Momusu’s sizable catalog there’ll surely be a lot of fan favorites from yesteryear included =)! Pre-ordering the LE was a no~brainer for me as it’ll include their very first live performance together as well as their official announcement of being a group both of which occurred this past January 28th…..album scheduled to be released on April 20th.
While Dorimusu boasts quite an amazing lineup with Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori, Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari, Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Ogawa Makoto, Fujimoto Miki & Kusumi Koharu……I do find myself missing the inclusion of Ishiguro Aya, Ichii Sayaka and really especially Gotou Maki although understandably parenthood and management contracts respectfully, wouldn’t allow those girls to join in =/. In addition to just how exciting it’ll be to see such a talent filled lineup together where some have had years of departure from the group, there’ll be the glow of a most fun dynamic this group presents in that there’ll be an opportunity created for fans to witness early generation girls performing together along with the latter generations, some which have never meshed together before now.
And doesn’t Nacchi~♥ look so beautiful?!….okay I’m a bit biased that way :P. Everyone looks great and for Kohachan she sure didn’t have to wait very long to get right back into idol~ing ne～っo(*´∀｀)o♥。
