^ yeah that's a pretty terrible performance - not because they're bad singers necessarily, but because they really needed a more grounded voice/tone to balance out the sharper voices. the harmonies between machan and miki just isn't doing it.
to me it always seemed like Haruka was a lot closer to Ayumi and Haruna than Masaki. And that while they liked each other, they were grouped together a lot because they were similar in age. Haruka is a lot more chill than Masaki is, and I know for me at least that sometimes people who have high energy can be exhausting to be around lol. So while they probably hung out it wasn't as often as people think they did because Haruka probably hung out with Masaki in doses rather than constantly.
Sakura definitely doesn't push any of the pairings she has. From her blog it seems she's close with Hamaura, and Kanon. But there currently isn't anyone in MM that's she's super close with it seems. I feel like her and Masaki definitely drifted apart - they looked a lot closer when she started MM. That goes for Ikuta as well actually. Funnily enough my favorite pairing of Sakura is with Ayumi!
Oh man the tears I cried when Ayumi started talking...I still feel like Kudo had a couple of years left in Morning Musume, and I would have liked to see her lead a single again like in 'Oh my Wish' (jeez that was in 2015 already). But alas, she has a new dream now and I love actress Kudo so I hope from the bottom of my heart she achieves it!
Teatime!! I haven't seen ur post in a while.. Nice that u are still an Oda fan..
Ranghurl!! I know it's been such a long time since I've posted. I'll admit that my interest in Morning Musume/jpop faltered by quite a bit, although I still tried to keep up with what Sakura was doing (because my love for her is still 100%!!!). Thank you for remembering me T_T
i just watched mm17 20th anni event video from the new album..
anyone know what reina-sayu talked with sakura?? i just understand reina praise sakura perf. of resonant blue... but after that im blank
The other topics they talk about were Maria's versio of Fantasy Hajimaru, which Sayu complimented to look much like the original(?), Oda's dance/freestyle(?) which Reina and Sayu both found cool. Sayu even immitate her singing, only to apologise for being bad at singing (to what everyone laughed). Reina comments they can only immitate her dance/pose(?) but not the level of her, Oda's singing. Sayu also comments that she met Kamei Eri and told that Eri was super happy to hear that MM's new song received first place.
Hey y’all! I’m fairly new the H!O and didn’t where I should introduce myself so I suppose I’ll just do it in my kamioshi’s forum! I hope we can get along!
