    Happy New Year!!!! Here’s my top 5 wishes for 2015:

    1) Jurina PB!
    2) No more graduations
    3) Jurina PB!
    4) Everybody lets their hair grow, except Mio
    5) Jurina PB!

    Now that would be a perfect year, don’t you think? Do you have a list of your own? Oh, before you answer, let me help you get started: 1) Mayuyu reelected in 2015 sousenkyo, 2) Mayuyu gets very lucky in 2015 janken taikai. Ok, you can go from there if you want 😀

    • Happy New Year~*~~* phr!!!

      Hmm someone wants a Jurina PB really badly =P!! She’s so popular that I’d have to think she’d have many by now like at least one every year =D. Yuria is getting her very first shahshinshuu…..exited for her and fans alike! Haha Mio does suit the look doesn’t she and everyone keep the scissors away from Mayuyu!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Okay so I’ve got one and two already =)….

      3. Mayuyu releases a new shashinshuu
      4. Yuko begins a solo music career!
      5. NO GRADUATIONS I AGREE…although the biggest one is to come with Takamina sadly =(.
      6. Mayuyu releases more solo singles!
      7. Hashimoto Kanna goes solo and becomes an even greater threat to idols everywhere =P!
      8. Kuninaka Ryoko renews her music career!
      9. Okamoto Rei starts a rock band!
      10. “Shimotsuma Monogatari” SEQUEL!”

      There’s actually more but going over 10 would be ridiculous wouldn’t it =).

        Yes, I’m sure a lot of people want a Jurina PB really badly and one day someone will hear us =D And when that day comes, I’ll start campaigning for Mio. Lovetan I kinda gave up on already, even though I feel bad about it 😦 but yeah, but now it’s too late, I guess. Lots of PBs coming out though, two Nogizaka ones and then Yui…

        • It’s really shocking..Rena got one what gives? I wonder whom is making those big PB executive decisions?? Jurina gets her fair share of media coverage so why no PB. I bet Sakura gets a PB soon…it’s written in the stars or at least publications like Weekly Playboy will surely pull for it given by the attention they give to her =). Un Yuihan…just about a month and a half away or so now….Yuria’s is coming out at about the same time too but I’m sure Yuihan’s will dominate sales.

    • Now watching the rebroadcast of the Red & White Songfest….ARASHI♥ are great as hosts for the Red Team but I do miss Nakama Yukie as the host for the White Team…..Fukuyama Masaharu is one handsome guy!!!!…sorry he’s on screen right now =). Nakama Yukie is actually on the special guest panel and she’s been on stage too but it’s still not the same, she was the best host I think. Perfume is now performing Cling Cling…I never got into them maybe just a bit too electronic and particularly with their vocals….btw Paruru looks amazing as does Mayuyu of course and she even managed to smile brightly~* for the camea…..it was really sweet~♥….

      Like

      • phr says:

        My guess about Paruru is that she had a bad day sometime waaay back, some MC pointed it out or wotas noticed and started talking about it, and she started playing along with the image. She was pretty normal when she started. I remember she was one of the kenkyuusei being promoted when the “kenkyuusei” show (Ariyoshi AKB Kyowakoku) started airing. It used to be very heavy on promoting the kenkyuusei, they’ve changed direction recently. Anyway, she smiled as much as anyone else back there. Changed later. It’s kinda like Yossie now that I think about it, if you go back enough on Hello! Morning, she even looked like a girl when she joined. Ah, ok, that’s an exaggeration, she was always a perfectly nice girl. You got the point.

        Oh, I didn’t see Kouhaku this year. I found it but got just the first half by mistake, will look for it again. I just checked it now because I had no idea who the White Team host was, and I still had no idea upon seeing her… and then she’s introduced as Yoshitaka Yuriko o.o’ that’s so not someone I’d expected. wow. Yeah, sure Nakama Yukie would be better. I wish they had just continued with Horikita Maki though. Hum. Keeping with the list theme of my first comment, here are my favorite Kouhaku moments:

        1) Nakai calls Iida Kaori “Johnson”. She looks at him with what Takai-san named her classic “Nee Waratte” angry face.
        2) Abe Hiroshi is on stage as guest, with Nakai and Yukie as hosts. Nakai mentions the other two together reminds him of something. They do a quick impersonation of TRICK.
        3) X-JAPAN performs Kurenai. Just reminds me how Japan is awesome. For all Brazil might talk about diversity, you’d never see a performance like that on a “traditional” show like Kouhaku here. And that was in ’92, when they weren’t really worried about audience.

SMAP is now doing there thing!!! Beginning with “Shake”….I didn’t catch the very beginning missed the first 15 or so minutes but there seems to be this sort of theme. Awesome to be able to pick those out so vividly! Mmm…one for me would be when Moritaka Chisato performed with Eguchi Yosuke and it was before they were a ‘thing♥’ =). Amuro Namie’s return and with a powerful and tearful performance of “Can you celebrate?”…that was amazing and after so much she had gone through with. SMAP’S performance of “Arigatiou”…..the rare appearance of Mr.Children albeit by live satellite on the Kohaku!

                Don’t get me started on Yoshiki, I still plan to sleep sometime later today 😀 I could see them when they came to Brazil in 2011 and it’s still hard to believe the guy is real. You know when there’s a movie or something like that with musicians, but the actors aren’t really musicians and you’re hearing a recording with them more or less doing the right thing, but just acting to make it more dramatic? A kind of air playing I guess. Yoshiki looked like he was playing air drums with real drums, and doing a pretty good job. I mean, he plays well, and he plays theatrically at the same time. It’s pretty amazing.

            The problem with Momusu on Kouhaku was that as far as I remember, they never got to the point where the groups had separate entries on Kouhaku, but they still wanted all the minor groups to show up, so they turned “Momusu” into “Hello! Project”. They ended up with some really weird medleys thanks to that.
