MOBECUMAS - most probably the direct english "transliteration" (if I used the term properly lol). MO - <MO>rning Musume BE - <BE>rryz Koubou CU - <CU>te MA - <MA>no Erina S - <S>mileage Basically it is still correct. The original katakana is pronounced MOBEKIMASU Same for the MO, BE and MA parts but differs in a way that: KI - Ki-yuu-to (how the katakana for C-ute is set) SU - Su-mai-ree-ji (this one's for the Smileage group).
Maybe they just decided to put in paper an "english" or westernized version of the MOBEKIMASU we all know and love :D
C-ute's outfits are so cool and basic. I love them, sexy and cool, not too much going on, a nice set. Berryz, those are one of my top favorites. i still believe they should have them made into limited edition figurines. And Mano, that is one of her best costumes. I love the color scheme, the red bow. love it. comment: #123 bump for the 1,2,3
okay, before I type about Mano there are two things I noticed in this pic. 1: does Mizuki want to be there or did she already out-grow Morning Musume, hoping for a solo role in H!P? 2: who is Kudo looking at? now onto Mano...she looks great, damn right, you raise both arms, take the shine away form everyone. Comment: #118 bump for Mizuki's hardcore face.
