I was about to start one, but you beat me to it :P

Undoubtedly my favourite kid. She had a quickly developing singing talent (She kept up with Miki and Miyabi in Sexy Otonojan, quite an accomplishment), she was cute, funny, and thee best dancer in Kids, bar none. She was just so into it, like when she did back up for Gottsuan for Please Go On at the Natsu 2005 concert.

And I don't want offend Maiha fans, but her loss to Berryz wasn't half as felt as Megumi's to C-ute. With Megumi gone, I honestly believe it's what lead to Airi's current dominance of the group. Megumi was a good balance, between Airi and Maimi, and the three of them together was undoubtedly the best lead three any group has had in my opinion. But with her gone, Maimi got shoved back a little, Mai to the front a little ( a positive, in some respects), and Airi to way out front and center.

Sorely missed :angry:

Ah, ya beat me. I was going to start one myself.

Even before I liked H!P kids, I really liked Megumi. She was a really good singer. She was also one of the first members in c-ute that I noticed (when I actually started watching c-ute's videos instead of hearing or seeing Megumi outside of c-ute).

My dream trio would be Megumi, Airi, and Aibon singing together ( :angry: ). I think they were the best (or had the potential to be) singers H!P's ever had.

She was my 2nd Favorite Member of °C-ute. I think Tokaikko Junjou would fits her very well and she would sing the Lead parts with Airi together. Ah i miss her so much :angry: she is now 15 Years old

Megumi was a big talent, no doubt there. It's a shame that she is not in H!P anymore. Wonder if C-ute would have taken a different direction if she still was in it?

Sakura Chirari... wouldn't really have fit Megumi vocally. She'd do the cute image well, but I doubt vocally she would have been a big presence. Similar to Ooki na AI.

Meguru Kisetsu, she would have handled Kanna's lines with Airi without a doubt, and possibly even taken Maimi's solo lines (It's hard to distinguish which was more intended for promotion, I think her, but it's idle speculation)

Megumi would have owned Tokaikko Junjou. Soku Dakishimete is primarily remembered by several people as being Megumi's song, since she sounded and looked great, and style wise, they're pretty similar. And she would have danced very well to it too ^_^

While it's true that Megumi graduated (or just plain left. I mean she didn't even get a graduation ceremony :) ), and chances are she won't return. But we can discuss her performance as a H!P Kis here, and as you said, maybe one day, she will return. With Konno back, I refuse to rule much out anymore, bar Kago's return XD

Megumi's image was healthily between "cool" and "cute", and Tokaikko Junjou would've let her capatalize on the "cool" side. The entire attitude between that PV and song just seem very her. Like the way she delivers her first line of Soku Dakishimete in the PV "Watashi ni datte" and this little quirk of her head that was just all attitude XD

Hard to believe a year's gone already. Technically speaking, I had just become a fan when she graduated/left, so that was my first experience of the process. I didn't realise till later what a big loss she was, since I was still putting names to faces. :(

Maybe she didn't want one. It seemed like she wanted to get out of H!P as soon as possible. XD

True, true. But what was done to her was a huge invasion of privacy. If I was a H!P girl, I'd be hella scared of the wotas, especially if they were following me and taking pictures of me :) I respect her for putting her personal comfort and principles ahead of what was a very promising career, in the same way I do Maiha for choosing her education.

Not all of the wota are like that. Most of them got mad at the guy who took the picture of Megu.

When I first got into C-ute, Megumi was my favorite member and a day later I realized that she had already left a year ago. =\ Soku Daikishimete will never be the same without her voice. :)

That's what I mean by it was her song :) A lot of people love her vocal in that song, and I'm one of them. MaiMai doesn't do a bad job, but those are Megumi's lines, pretty untouchable. :(

Has the sparkliest eyes ever.

She really stood out to me for that. :0

I was sad when I realized she wasn't in H!P anymore when I discovered °C-ute..

She said she wanted to focus on school,but also, there were pictures that surfaced on the web with her and a boy. So that was probably a factor

Yeah, so the prevalent ideas are that it was because she was forced out for having a boyfriend, because she really did want to continue on with school, because she was afraid of stalkers and the like, or some combination thereof.

her "zutto daisuki" line in Shiroi Tokyo :bad: <3

I think a huge reason why C-ute is getting pushed to the front this year (three singles and three concerts, one athletic event and of course Magical cutie tour) is because Megu was such an important loss to C-ute, there wasn't any other choice but to make them really big. And yeah, they're accomplishing it. .
