Margie GiGi - Thank you SO SO much for that video translation. I've followed C-ute for so long, seen them live and yet I now feel closer to them than ever before. These interviews were amazing and telling.
I had no idea what an influence Megumi was... I always just saw her as someone who left early on. I also didn't realize Kana joined in a bit later and how much resistance there was... so many interesting things.
I love Chisa's point about moving on as 5 when she said "we're going to try to be successful so that they regret leaving the group" lol.
I also had never even heard of Chisa's Odotte Mita series so this was just amazing.
I did find it a bit strange that Airi mentioned how Berryz Kobo started and continued as a 7 member group (did she forget there were originally 8?).
I guess the members of Kobushi Factory have gone through similar reactions to their downsizing.
Laughter, tears and love through it all.
