"Tu" and "tsu" are both acceptable romanizations of the character つ so it's not really wrong.

I read somewhere Katuta Rina instead of KaTSUta Rina, so it may be as  Batsy sais.

It's probably like how they mix up r and l some times. There was an idol song once called "Bland new me" but of course they meant 'brand' hahaha

It's why in the end I hate most Romanisation, it's so inconsistent and normally off the mark...the double vowel stuff really annoys me.

That's right. It's like the thing with Petit Moni being Pucchi Moni. "ti" is equivalent to "chi". Just as "tu" is equivalent to "tsu". By organization of consonant/vowel pairing, "ti" and "tu" are acceptable...but going by pronunciation, the romanization is most prominently "chi" and "tsu". 


Japanese, ladies and gentlemen! XD


So yeah, I read that Karin likened the new single to Uchouten Love and Watashi blah blah Urabanchou, by S/mileage, saying that there are many line changes between members. But she also said it was "cool" and "refreshing". I'm trying to get a mental image of what this single will sound like, but it's hard to conceptualize it haha

Let me see...


How Karin describes the single.... It's similar to Uchouten Love due to all the line changes, then the cool and refreshing thing is like Samidare(I don't feel like spelling it), their second indies single. Now combine them together and it's fairly easy to imagine. :)

On July 14, Juice=Juice will perform at OGA Music Festival. They will be performing their major debut single, Romance no Tochuu.


That's in ten days, ten more slow days... :P

It's a hip-hop sounding single, according to H!P Wikia, which references Karin.




I'm not sure how to feel about that :P That could mean a variety of things...

I agree! She has such a unique look about her. It's not just her unique face, but there's something about her air that makes her especially charming :3


To be honest, I think each member of J=J has a very unique appearance, now that I think about it. Aina has that classic styled Yasuda Kei-esque face, Yuka has the puppy-dog eyes, Sayubee has that unique air, Akarin has her demure Kaorin-esque beauty and hair, Karin has her lithe figure and cute face, and Tomoko has that perfect, model-ook like Airi.

大塚愛菜 本人並びにご家族と契約に関しての協議を重ねてまいりましたが、
We sincerely thank you for always supporting Juice=Juice.
In line with Otsuka Aina's own wishes, along with some overlap of contractual issues with her family, we were unfortunately unable to reach an agreement with the terms of the contract, and with respect to her family's non acceptance of the contract terms, from July 5th Otsuka Aina will no longer be part of Juice=Juice or the Hello!Pro Kenshuusei.
From now on Juice=Juice will continue on with only 5 members.
We beg the understanding of the fans on this matter, and hope that you will continue to support them.



Cross posting. I don't get what's going on. >_>

Unfortunate. I have to wonder what was going through their minds and what they were expecting, especially consdering they let her audition for Morning Musume and continue into the finals where there was a legitimate chance of her winning (and I'm sure the contract is extremely similar, if not identical), and even after that letting her carry on in the trainee program. It's a little ridiculous.

Fandom Obsessive.

Maybe her parents wanted more out of the deal. Thats all I can think of. That would also explain the Morning Musume scenario, I expect Momusu girls get more in terms of paycheck, so the parents didn't mind.

I feel sorry for Aina and J=J. I just hope the group's moral doesn't take a nose dive.

What. She had a lovely voice! :o It's sad she's going to be leaving. I kind of noticed that she wasn't as excited as I thought she would be during the announcement of their debut. (Their #10 documentary) She was just standing there, sort of thinking about something else. Not really smiling all that much. I thought it was because of her injury (she had one right?) but maybe she was thinking of this issue with her family as well.


Aaahhh this is like Berryz and Maiha all over again. xDD Though Aina's situation is a bit more unique. I hope Juice=Juice still keeps up their powerful image!!! These girls seem so dedicated and glad to be able to debut so I hope their hard work won't go to waste!


But omg 5 members. C-ute---ish? ajdgasjkfgjkasf tbh I think they CAN be as powerful as C-ute with time. GO J=J!!!
