This year has just about come to an end so its peculation time. Next year seems like it'll be pretty unpredictable with three new groups possibly debuting together and with a number of graduations coming too. I want to see what other people think is going to happen.


Last year





Morning Musume

- I think they are going to add new members. (They don't really have anything else going on except the usual releases)

This is more of a hope but I want to see them move away from EDM and bring back the choruses in their songs

- I also don't think that Haruna is going to be the only person to graduate next year



- They seem to be changing their sound and image towards being more fashionable with more fun songs so I think they'll keep following that trend



- I think they'll continue focusing of tours


Kobushi Factory

- Unless their sales see a dramatic increase, I still see them adding new members since that's H!P solution to a lot of their problems


Tsubaki Factory

- Another anime tie-in

- Maybe a drama or movie tie-in

- Since they didn't get one this year, I expect they get a hall tour next year

- I think they'll have a single that out-sells Teion Yakedo

- No member changes

- 2 singles (and they will both be full of bops)



- Won't make any expectations for this/these group/s since they haven't even finalized the lineup

I only really have predictions for MM and Beyooooonds:


Morning Musume:

- At least one more grad, maybe more, followed by 15th gen. 

- 15th gen has at least one girl from an audition.



- 3rd group is 3 members. Most likely all auditionees, but my hope is two auditionees and one Kodama Sakiko. 

- Has an awesome debut single. A-side(s) are by Beyooooonds with a B-side by each unit. 

MM ~ Nonaka Miki, Kaga Kaede ANGERME ~ Sasaki Rikako J=J ~ Takagi Sayuki, Danbara Ruru 

CG ~ Yamaki Risa KF ~ Hamaura Ayano TF~ Kishimoto Yumeno 

KSS - Takase Kurumi, Sato Hikari 

OG ~ Iida Kaori, Suzuki Kanon, Fukuda Kanon, Inaba Manaka, Mitsui Aika, Nakajima Saki

Other Companies ~ Iwase Misaki, Cuca, Nagahama Neru, Maruyama Karin, Khao Kazumaisiri , Suzuka Nakamoto

Since it's nearly the end of the year, I guess I need to get on this!

Here's how last year's predictions went (Correct in GREEN, Debatable in GOLD, Incorrect CROSSED OUT, Comments in BOLD.):


I'm actually quite surprised with how many of them were correct or at least partially.

2019 Predictions/Hopes



  • No general H!P auditions but rather it goes back to group-specific auditions
  • Takechan becomes H!P subleader after Ayacho graduates and gives leadership to Mizuki
  • Shuffle units that release content
  • At least 2 releases per group (not counting BEYOOOOONDS' subsidiaries).
  • Another Concert in USA!!
  • Joint Kobushi & Tsubaki Factory BUDOKAN

Morning Musume '19

  • 15th Generation by the end of the year, 4nin, at least one Audition girl.
  • 3 singles (I'm begging, please).
  • 2 graduations (I'm thinking Eripon & Miki, but not positive)
  • More lines for Kaedy
  • Bigger concert venue than Budokan
  • 16th Album
  • Another U.S. Concert (preferably near me kthx)


  • Takechan ANGERME leader (not that I don't want Kananan, but Take has the KSS tenure)
  • 2 singles
  • An album in Q2
  • 1 or more of 2nd Gen will graduate
  • Haruka gets Green, Reira gets Purple


  • No graduations besides Yuka & Yanamin
  • 2 singles
  • New member(s)
  • Tomoko leader, Sayuki subleader (pretty sure this one will happen)

Country Girls

  • 1 digital single
  • Either adding a new member with concurrency, or disbanding altogether
  • Something else is done with Ozeki Mai

Kobushi Factory

  • New members
  • Release music that I can thoroughly enjoy
  • No graduations
  • Album in Q4

  • No lineup changes
  • 3 singles
  • Keep the bops coming


  • Become one of my fave H!P groups
  • First indies single in Q1
  • Megane no Otoko no Ko mp3 release
  • Major debut by Q3
  • 3rd group with Audition girls gets their own unit & unit name.
  • BEYOOOOONDS acts as the main act for singles' A-Sides, B-sides are songs by the individual groups
  • Lineup doesn't change the whole year
  • Miyo becomes my favorite H!P member
  • At least 2 singles


  • DEBUT: Ono Kotomi, Yonemura Kirara, Ishiguri Kanami, Hashisako Rin, Yamada Ichigo, Nakayama Natsume, Tamenaga Shion & Saito Madoka
  • Another release of some sort (single or album)
  • 30th Gen of like 5-8 girls

My hopes/predictions



-Akane starts getting more lines in songs (Kinda already starting to happen with I surrender and the other new song, but still more Akane pls)

-More Kaede too pls

-Actually I will take more lines for any of the girls that aren't Mizuki, Sakura or Masaki tbh. Need more of a variety of voices in their songs

-Eripon gets more modelling jobs (magazines, photobooks, anything pls ufp)

-At least one more graduation

-15th Gen, or at least they start auditions for them

-Another overseas concert when Miki returns from studying (Europe pls)

-Another single like Oh My Wish where the back members get to lead for a change

-Their singles in 2019 are not as meh as the ones in 2018



-Another graduation besides Ayaka

-An album before Ayaka graduates pls pls pls

-They have another concert overseas



-No new members are Yuka and Yanamin's grads

-The single after Yanamin's grad has a more mature feel to it (Like Sexy Sexy)

-Maybe they start to focus on dance a bit more with Manaka's addition?



-More members are added at some point, like one or two

-They release more songs I enjoy (Kitto Watashi wa was a step in the right direction, more like this pls)



-More Riko in songs pls

-Keep releasing the best songs



-They have a major debut during the second half of the year

-No more members are added, they are perfect as they are.

-Reina grows her hair back



-None of my new faves leave (Losing Marina, Rena, Ryo, Mizuki and Kurumi in one year was rough)

-Some more of the Hokkaido KKS debut (I feel like Minori, Mei and Kanami especially are ready to)

-Riai and Natsume debut somewhere (15th gen maybe?)


Nightmares that I hope never come true ever

-Eripon or Akane graduates

-Tsubaki or Beyooooooooonds lose a member


Dreams I know will never come true but I wish they would

-Miki uses her newfound english skills to start doing Miki's Surprise English lessons

-Eripon is centre for one song pls

-Riho reappears in some form

-Zukki and Ogata instagram accounts pls I miss their faces

I'm just gonna keep this short and sweet.

Beyonds have a great debut.

Country girls continue as a unit (still release music).

Morning musume audition for new members to be added in 2020.

No other graduations on 2019 apart from the ones already announced.
