I just couldn’t decide for one picture, so I picked two. Takahashi Ai was truly stunning in that outfit. The other versions (White and green) were amazing, too, but the black one definitely wins the prize. With Momusu’s long history of awful outfits, this one was a shock. In the subject of Rival Survival, I must say the promotional outfits for the concert were amazing as well. Other outfits I like are the ones for Kare to Issho, Nanchatte Ren'ai and 3, 2, 1, BREAKIN’ OUT.
Some of my favorite non-single songs right now are Genki+, Purple Wind, Moonlight Night ~Tsukiyo no Ban da yo~, their cover of Seishun Jidai, Fantasy ga Hajimaru, Aisaresugiru Koto wa Nai no yo, Wagamama, Densha no Futari, Take off is now and Lemon Iro to Milk Tea. Yeah, I like a lot of songs. Can’t choose just one…
Yossy is apparently loved by almost everyone. Even those who don’t list Hitomi as their favorite (Or even one of the top three) still seem like her. She’s a funny girl, has a great personality and was a great leader! Ok, who are we kidding? Yossy is so unbelievably cool that half the fandom is actually in love with her. The boyish attitude she has (or used to have) is also a plus. No wonder why she’s so popular. (So… awesome!…)
the age that never came. Dorcas ended his life in the name of her friends, but she never for felt sorry for it. She wanted to be alive to have children and grow up with their friends, the laughter and the problems of being an adult. This all couldn’t never be realized.
An expression of the Platinum Era perfection. The previous CD, Platinum 9 DISC, was already pretty great, but this was the peak of Momusu. We open at one of my favorite tracks ever, Moonlight Night ~Tsukiyo no Ban da yo~, followed by sexy Kimagure Princess and the adorableness of Genki Pikappika. Namidacchi is sure to bring tears to everyone’s eyes, while Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai is a single I truly enjoy, while very much underrated. Soon come the group songs: an 6ki song, Ookii Hitomi (that no one seems to be able to spell correctly), and an AiGaki one, Ano Hi ni Modoritai. Nanchatte Ren'ai comes next, and that’s a song I’ll always love because it was my favorite Momusu song ever. Osaka Umainen is the only boring song of the CD, but at least we have lines for Aika, Jun and Lin. Loving you forever is amazing (Linlin solo lines!!), and Shouganai Yume Oibito is very popular in the fandom (Also, it has a really cool MV that you should check out). We close with the Chinese version of Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou?, which is proof of JunLin vocal awesomeness. 10/10 would recommend.
I enjoy most of the Morning Musume’s singles, but recently I’ve been quite obsessed about their newest release, Ai no Gundan. The song is catchy, the dance is cool, the outfits – both the red/black ones and the dresses – are nice (well, that’s rare), and even the set is rather cool. While most people seem to like Wagamama Ki no Mama Ai no Joke better, Ai no Gundan remains my favorite of the two main tracks. I have to admit: at first, I wasn’t very much impressed by it… that is, until I listened to it a few more times and fell in love completely. (By the way, my favorite parts are the “Hontou ni dareka wo mamoritakerya/Chikaku ni aru tokya wakaranakute” ones…)
Zukki is an adorable girl. She’s sweet, funny and really nice. Although she wasn’t my favorite when she first joined, she soon (very, very soon) became my #1 current Musume. I adore her personality and her voice, and she’s also ridiculously pretty.
