I wish I were there. Mostly just to see Nacchi, Nakazawa and Yoshizawa. Seriously, Yuko is still really hot.
 2009-02-02 04:27
It's sad just watching that short video of the graduation. Hello!Project definately won't be the same after the elders leave, but it's also time to pass the "role" to the "younger" members.

I will definately miss seeing the elders appear onscreen, but I do give my best wishes to them for their new start along with my greatest thanks to them for starting the basis of a wonderful family.

I will absolutely buy this concert when it comes out.
 2009-02-02 04:29
I think once I see the concert and buy it, I'm going to be bawling my eyes out. The end of an era and the beginning of a new one.
 2009-02-02 04:32
^it really is. it'll be hard to watch the concert all the way through.
 2009-02-02 04:32
Aww! Yossie was crying! I really wish I could have been there. I can't believe it's really over. Hard to believe. I can't wait to see this on DVD.

Nono! Glad to see her back, I hope she sticks around in some capacity. She looks so more mature!
 2009-02-02 04:32
sad :_:
 2009-02-02 04:33
I have to buy this one. even if I never buy any other H!P concert I have to buy this one, especially to see Tsuji~!!
 2009-02-02 04:36
Ahahaha too bad the news source is horribly misinformed. I like the (21) next to 27 year old Nacchi's name. If that was true she would've been like 10 when she joined MoMusu. XD

Also seeing the flowers from Maki and the clip of Nono dancing on stage made me tear up. H!P Elder Club, I love you foreverrrr.
 2009-02-02 04:38
Thank you for all you have done, this is sad end....but a great new beginning for the graduated members and the exisiting members. We will never forget what they have done to make H!P what it is today. I wish them all the best luck in their future careers/lives...and hope to see a lot more of them ^_^

It was actually a pretty lame graduation. Yes they did the letter reading and passing of responsibility (though I'm not sure how it'll work with Takahashi still being in Morning Musume, as Yuko wasn't called leader til after she graduated.

But besides the letter reading and everyone in the stands tearing up then, nothing. Fans during the letter reading were taking out and cracking their white glowsticks, and then there was no opportunity to use them. All for One and all the other numbers were exactly the same as the afternoon concert (which I had first row center seats to, my fanclub luck amazes even me) and there was no encore. Which at the large concerts there normally isn't, but there was when Mako and Konkon graduated Morning Musume. Although by the time the concert ended it was exactly 9pm (and hence the girls under 18 would HAVE to be off stage) to the calls of encore the graduating members did come out for a bow, but that was it.

Everyone was expecting atleast an extra ending performance of "Never Forget" but nothing. As far as graduations go it was just disappointing that it ended without the white glowstick waving.

^That's sad to hear. :(

One thing stuck out to me, and it was Takahashi's words: "Hello Project will last forever". A nice sentiment, I hope it really will.

its really sad ... 72 people ...Hello!Project...
and they are not singing "Love Machine" anymore??

*edited... and best wishes to the girls...
believing that fate will bring them together again ...
 2009-02-02 05:03
"Also, if the translated article is correct, this concert includes the last performance of the iconic Hello!Project hit 'Love Machine'."

Man, definitely and end of an era... Can't wait to see the video of the concert.
 2009-02-02 05:08
Geez, I'm such a wuss, the photos alone in this article are making my eyes feel heavy. How the hell am I gonna be able to watch the actual concert without bawling like a baby?
 2009-02-02 05:10
Wow, what a big responsibility for Ai! She'll do great as the new leader of H!P, I'm sure! Sad to see everyone go, but they will move on to great things too, I hope! That's sad that they retired Love Machine though... that song was so fun to watch live, no matter what generation was performing it!
 2009-02-02 05:10
Oh Gosh, if I'm tearing up just from the pictures then I'll be a complete sobbing mess if I watch the dvd T_T Seriously though, even though the concert wasn't spine tingling, it's still enough to see all of them together, live, one more time!!! That's what it is all about, right?

And everyone always saw Yuko as a leader!!!

As for Love Machine...........please retire it and not let anyone sing it again, unless the Elders suddenly have a comeback tour!!
 2009-02-02 05:10
I hope someone uploads this; it looks like it was a good concert.
 2009-02-02 05:12
To me, they graduated already a long time ago.
Eventhough Mari and Satoda Mai have some media presence now and then, the others were practically non-existant to me.
 2009-02-02 05:13
T__T i wish them the very best. and hopefully they become active outside H!P.
 2009-02-02 05:19
Great Article ^_^
 2009-02-02 05:30
when will it be released here? I want to see it. Its sad to see them all graduate fully.
 2009-02-02 05:44
At least IshiYoshi is still coming out. They'll probably at least have some international thing going on once in a while which has been going and still is confirmed to be going. That's an awsome thing.

Im dissapointed in hearing that about the actual concert too. No "Never Forget." But I still wish I was there to see them.

Yossie looked really hot with the ponytail.
 2009-02-02 05:53
Ai Takahashi is the H!P leader. O_O I never thought I'd see the day.

Not that I mind, I love her.
 2009-02-02 05:53
Wait...so are they graduated or graduating on March 31? I'm confused.

The whole thing is very sad, but nice in a way. I love that Gocchin sent flowers <3

Sob...sobsobsobsobsob. I'm so glad Makoto got to perform; I was so confused whether she was going to! OHHHHH I WISH I had gotten to be there. This is so sad.
And that Ishiguro Aya was there? That's so adorable! And that Maki sent flowers, and Nono came back, and the groups sang their last songs... oh, this is so, so sad. Retiring Love Machine?? What, is Momusu never going to sing it again? Because the group is completely dead to me if they just stick to their new junk.
Something inside me just died.
 2009-02-02 06:00
What a great sendoff to the Elder Club! Hope they continue to do well in their own respective careers.

Not surprised to see Yossi in tears, just surprised anyone actually CAPTURED it.
 2009-02-02 06:05
I was just thinking about the age gap between Yuko and Ai and remembered when I first heard MM - it was right after they released "Koi no Dance Site". That was AGES ago! Things sure have changed since then...I'm interested in how the graduated members will fare in the future. Wonder how Sayaka is doing?

Nice surprise to see flowers from Maki, too. (^_^)
 2009-02-02 06:11
This day come fast ! Very fast !
 2009-02-02 06:14
 2009-02-02 06:15
They haven't graduated yet, technically they jump ship on March 31st. A few of them have upcoming releases, so it's not like they're going to suddenly disappear.
 2009-02-02 06:29
I wish them all success in everything they do~!!
(definitely going to buy the dvd, too)
 2009-02-02 06:53
;_; This is so sad...I really wish they weren't graduating...
 2009-02-02 07:00
I cried a little bit just watching the clip and seeing the pictures (especially the flowers from Maki). These girls have become such a big part of my life, and while I know they'll still be as much a presence as they were, it won't be the same. Though, yes, this is definitely a concert I will sit down and watch all of.
 2009-02-02 07:10
so sad~
i feel all woozy inside X.X
great concert though
 2009-02-02 07:16
And there goes the last of my interest in Hello!Project. Best of luck to all of them.

And praise the lord they're retiring Love Machine. Enough is enough ;)
 2009-02-02 07:51
Wow! Ishiguro Aya showed up backstage!! Still looking fine, too.
 2009-02-02 08:16
While I believe I understand the reasons behind it, I think it's extremely dumb to never perform Love Machine again. Instead of tucking it away like some breakable family treasure, I believe it should be used normally and sung as they usually would; as a way to honor and pay homage to the girls that came before them and performed it first.
 2009-02-02 08:35
This is the worst birthday in my life,
with that new I'm crying.

This is so freaking sad.
I'm so touched at the flowers to Goto Maki and Ishi Aya at backstage.
The last performance with the orginal lines up of the sub groups
And the completion of Morning Coffee make me want to cry

I have goosebump just reading about the article, imagine I'm there.
I would cry my freaking eyes out.

And Yes Ai is absolutely right
"Hello Project will last forever"
 2009-02-02 09:09
SMP!! Thanks for this guys.
The retiring of Love Machine is just, wow. What a tribute.
 2009-02-02 09:24
does this include Miki Fujimoto as graduating?

what exactly is with the whole graduating thing anyway, they have the keep everyone young and fresh? gah, this is touching is frustrating at the same time.
 2009-02-02 09:32
They should've invited ''all' the membars who've graduated on-stage. and i really mean all of them.
including ishiguro aya, fukuda asuka, ichii sayaka, Goto Maki, Kago Ai, Asami, Miuna, Mika, and Ayaka, considering its their last show.....Now that i call a performance!
 2009-02-02 09:43
Well I dont really think I'll be into H!P as much as I used to, although I'll just probably catch up with what not because of MM but the "H!P kids" never really been into them so yeah I guess its just M-line for me then.
 2009-02-02 09:46
I've been crying for 10 minutes already just from looking at the photos ;_;
 2009-02-02 10:22

this kinda took me by surprise because i assumed that the March 31 date was going to be the last day of the concert. but i guess it wouldn't have made sense for it to be going for another 2 months..

but still!! TT^TT i am unprepared and very bummed out. i'll be in Japan on March 31, i wonder if they're going to be doing anything else around that time..?

also, to translate Diego's quote in a way that more people can appreciate it's meaning:
"Life is worth nothing, it begins with crying and with crying it ends.
 2009-02-02 10:28
This is so sad! ;_; H!P without Elder Club is... just not the same H!P. Still, I wish all of them the best of luck! It might be interesting seeing them outside of H!P, since they'll be free to do new stuff now if they want. Still, not being a huge fan of H!P kids, I must say this is quite sad for me... I need to buy that DVD, though!!

I'm overjoyed to see Nono back! Nono~! I watched the news on TV here today and saw the clip of the graduation concert. I can't believe they'll never preform as part of H!P anymore...

I was okay up to the point where I saw Yossie in the photo..then I lost it. I wish all the girls the best of luck in whatever they set their hopes on, I know I will see many of them again in the future doing different things, but the fact that the Hello Project family has been seriously broken it is going to take awhile for me to adjust.
