I asked Mika on Twitter, yesterday, what she thought of the new lineup of mini moni, and I sent her the YT video of them singing crazy about you. She hasn't answered me yet, but I'll bet I'm not the first person to ask her that. I'm just curious cuz until Linlin left, I loved the lineup. But this past concert, I really feel like they fell apart without her. Or maybe I just liked Linlin way too much to admit that this lineup really could never hold a candle to the original.

Though, I have to say, in a lot of ways, I always thought Linlin kinda looked and sounded a little like Mika....
I think I'm getting off topic now, though, so I'll stop rambling.

edit: Three pages for Mika! ^_^

^ Mika and Linlin do share the common bond of both being the leader of Minimoni and being a prominent foreign-born member of H!P (which also fits in with how Minimoni unintentionally has the most prominent H!P presence in western/international media thanks to Jay Leno and Youtube). And speaking of Twitter, I like how Mika and Aibon are keeping in touch that way.

@Lyra - Nice job with the screenshots!

@ItsudemoAibon - Someone already linked those videos a few posts above yours! XD But I guess they're worth seeing twice? I still haven't watched them yet; I keep forgetting to do so.

@Aly B

Did you ask her about H!P's decision to oust their foreign employees Junjun & Linlin? Since she was a foreign H!P employee too

^ No. I have wanted to. I just have a hard time finding the words... I feel like it'd probably be a sensitive subject. Maybe one day I (or someone) will gather up the balls to ask her.

edit: she answered my question about mini moni. She said "awww they're so cute!" Not what I was expecting, but she's not wrong. lol

I wrote down the lyrics for her song "Hope is on the way," (well, what we've heard of it) and tried to translate the Japanese parts. I'm not very confident in my Japanese skills, so anyone feel free to correct me.

I know you're stranded in the dark
And you can't see through.
But I'll be here for you.
Please hold tight
Don't give up this fight.
Cuz the moment that we're in is not the end,
Not the end.
Hope is on the way.
Hope is coming
Everyone is here.

Love'll guide us through each day.
Lean on me today.
Don't give up on your dreams.
Reach for tomorrow.

Soon we'll see
A brighter day.

^ I think it's a good translation! Only a few corrections on the first part, really:

希望を抱いて kibou wo idaite embrace hope
皆で祈って minna de inotte let's all pray/wish

夢を捨てないで yume wo sutenaide don't give up your dreams (lit. abandon, throw away etc.)
明日に向かって ashita ni mukatte reach for tomorrow (can also be translated as "go towards" or "face")

So I think it'd be something like:

Hope is on the way.
Embrace hope
Let's all pray.

Love'll guide us through each day.
Lean on me today.
Don't give up your dreams.
Reach for tomorrow.

Soon we'll see
A brighter day.


I really like Mika's songs! I hope she'll release a CD soon! :)

^ Ahh... now that I see your romaji, that makes more sense. Can't believe I didn't hear "idaite." It's gotta be in like every JPop song I've ever heard. lol. Thanks!

I also hope she releases something soon!!! She's just too amazing to disappear!!!

I think Mika is a great singer! :good: I also think she has some acting skills. I'd like to see her in a drama. She was really funny in the Mini Moni segments. The one I can't forget is when she was the judge in the magic contest between Kago (Komaric) and Trumpman. Hilarious! :D

Let's all keep supporting Mika! :)

Don't put that on her. She's in good standing with UpFront and Hello!Project right now, there's no need to jeopardize that for something she has no involvement in. She never even knew Linlin and Junjun.

Fan of the 48 Family, Linda III Sei, Tokyo Performance Doll, THE Possible, and Seifuku Kojo Iinkai.

^ just did! I dont know if anyone else did, or if she already knew about it or not. Maybe she'll convince Ayaka to join twitter, too!

... or can Ayaka get a twitter? Is she under any agency that forbids that??

^^ Interesting question. It would be nice if Ayaka :wub: got a Twitter account.

Here is a photo of Mika and Hayley Natto. She is a friend of Mika's. I think she is a photographer and/or makeup artist.

I wasnt gonna put this on the picboard because A.) Mika's in the back behind non-idols. and B.) it might be a little controversial. Anyway... Mika at some after party for a fashion event.

Yep... seems like Mika smokes. I dont have a problem with smoking (I myself am a smoker) but I figured it might be an interesting topic to discuss. Or at least now we know something about Mika we didn't know before.

She ain't an idol anymore, so as long as it ain't illegal I am not bothered personally, good to see such a natural smile

"Oumpa" That's cute, cuz she's super short. :lol:
"E.T." Don't get this one, but friends can be mean sometimes. lol
and "Tinkerbell" .... cuz she can fly? :P

"Tinkerbell" is probably another reference to her size. I wouldn't mind seeing her in a costume of that character... ;)

The smoking is a bit of a turn off for me, but somehow not surprising considering the club/party lifestyle she seems to be doing. Hopefully it's not too much of a habit for her; don't wanna lose that great singing voice now.

I saw Mika's facebook page some time ago. One of the things that she had listed for an interest was "The Standard, Hollywood" . . .
