The real reason Fukumura Mizuki became part of Morning Musume.

This one completely flew over my head, but thank you so much for your translation, Lurkette!
It's interesting to read about Tsunku's thoughts, especially about the Eggs. I'm glad that the KSS nowadays have a higher chance at debuting, especially in MM. It's crazy to think that this wasn't an option until 8th gen - and Linlin probably only debuted because she was part of the expansion plans. Looking at it now it makes sense to debut KSS in established groups: They already know how the company works, they know the members, have probably performed a few of their songs and are used to the coaches and training.


He bounces around a lot here, but the main point I believe is that Fukumura debuted because he wanted to establish a path for the Eggs to debut, but especially in Morning Musume (LinLin is a special case because I don't think she was added to Egg without management knowing exactly what they were going to do with her and they wanted to hold her in Japan while they found another Chinese member), and he feels validated in this decision because of how strong of a member she turned out to be. Also that he felt like he had to sort of manipulate the group's management into going along with his ideas, like setting up the Fukumura idea so that a TV production company would fully support it even if management didn't so that they'd be pressured to let it fly.
