Some esoteric (?) info about H!P and its members

So yeah, I should probably share some of my esoteric (?) research about H!P and its members on this blog!
  • While the H!P member with the shortest tenure ever there is Shim Min (she's from South Korea and she was an H!P member for only a month or so in 2006 in case you forgot), she didn't get to participate in any H!P groups due to her short tenure, so it's worth saying that the member with the shortest tenure in an H!P group ever goes to... Yanagihara Hiromi of Country Musume fame! (she was a member for only 2 months and 20 days, and got herself killed in a car crash the week before Futari no Hokkaido was released in 1999, so...)
  • Throughout H!P history, there've been 2 people who've used the name Ruru in H!P group promotions: Honda Ruru (of Taiyou to Ciscomoon fame - she's actually of Chinese origin and her Chinese name's Guo Jialu) and Danbara Ruru (currently part of Juice=Juice).
  • Out of all the H!P units featuring Berikyuu members, Buono! (originally formed to perform OSTs for the Shugo Chara! anime, although it continued as a band long after that anime ended) lasted the longest with a 10-year run.
  • KSS trainee Kawashima Mifu (who's just joined the KSS program this year in case you were living under a rock) shares the same surname with former same-program trainee Kawashima Miyuki (who was under the KSS program between 2004 and 2005, which was back when it was Hello Pro Egg BTW).
  • Mitsui Aika, Aikawa Maho, Kamei Eri, Sato Masaki, Kanazawa Tomoko, and so on were all motivated to graduate from H!P as a result of personal issues regarding their health (note: 3 of the ones I mentioned have graduated already, while 2 of them have yet to).
So that's all I chose to fit into this blog post sharing my esoteric (?) research about H!P and its members - there could be more esoteric stuff about that beyond what I chose to share here, so... 😏
