Mini Moni revival?

Tsunku mentioned in his blog earlier today that he would like to revive H!P’s old subunit Mini Moni. He said he wants to take strong action with H!P and organize a new Mini Moni. He would also like this new Mini Moni to have 4 members like the old Mini Moni did. He already see’s Kanon as a perfect Mini Moni member.

Tsuji and Mari have also mentioned Tsunku contacting them about Mini Moni in their blogs. But this is still just a rumor, as Tsunku didn’t announce this officially. He was more or less throwing out the idea of having a new Mini Moni. Tsunku himself is even unsure what to do.

This news has really made my day. Mini Moni was the first H!P group I ever heard, and the reason I love H!P today. So I’m really excited to see if and when this happens! New Mini Moni will never be as good as old Mini Moni, but I’m still pretty happy about this.
I also wonder what kind of music would the new Mini Moni make. Would it be Strawbrerry pie era or Crazy About You era songs? Or a new style all together. I’d honestly be happy either way.

Since this is still a rumor, I can talk about my dream Mini Moni group.

Fukuda Kanon

Even though she was already picked to be in Mini Moni, I would have picked her anyway. I love Kanon! She has the cutest voice ever. She’s definitely mini Aibon.

LinLin

LinLin’s funny and over the top personality would be perfect for Mini Moni. She was really cute when she sang Ai~n! Dance no uta in concert last year. And she’s only 3 cm taller than the Mini Moni height limit. Plus we need more LinLin love.

Arihara Kanna


Kanna has the vocals and personality to be in Mini Moni. She’s also only about 3 cm taller than the Mini Moni height rule. Too bad she’s still recovering from her foot injury.

Saho Akari

Akari isn’t really my favorite H!P Egg and I don’t really care if she’s in the group or not. It’s just that she was shafted from S/mileage, so give the girl a break!

Anyway, here’s a Mini Moni video to keep you in the Mini Moni mood.

Kusano returning to NEWS in April?

All I can say about this is where have I been? I seriously just found out about this yesterday. But this info has been all over the web for almost a year! I really need to start following JE more. Currently all my time is spent religiously following H!P. But anyway, since it’s getting extremely close to the rumored date this deserves to be posted.

Ex-NEWS member Hironori Kusano left for New York City last year around April 18th. He was said to have departed to study both dance and English in NYC. And it seems the extra nudge to leave was Kusano’s lonely feelings he had when Jin spoke in English. There was also apparently a farewell party held for him. Which Jin attended and probably Yamapi.

I found this picture shocking at first look because I automatically recognized the girl in the picture. It’s none other than Chelsea aka AmerikaJinMusume. I’m sure most of you will remember her, from either her youtube dance videos or her appearance on Haromoni@. She also has her own blog, if you want to check that out. She’s also a little to chummy with them if you ask me. She also refers to Kusano has Hiro. But anyway, this is pretty much the most recent picture of Notti on the web. It also wasn’t easy to find. It seems that Kusano has changed much, which is good. I wonder if he also kept his hair the same? Hard to tell when his hair is under that hat.

I really hope this isn’t a rumor because this is seriously the best news I’ve gotten all week. And all it makes sense now, why only Uchi was getting attention. It’s kind of hard to have a solo concert if you’re not in the right country. I think my previous posts make it pretty obvious that I’m a bigger Kusano fan than Uchi fan. He’s supposed to be coming back in April, so I’ll really be looking forward to seeing if anything actually happens. I’ve really missed Kusano’s unique vocals, awesome dance skills, and his overall sexyness.

But I doubt Kusano will be placed back into NEWS just like that. They will probably do the same thing as Uchi and have solo concerts first. But it’s pretty interesting that the Kusano comeback rumor overlaps with the Johnny’s Entertainment shuffle groups rumor. So maybe we’ll see the return of Kusano in a dream unit first. Who knows? As of today neither of these things have been confirmed by JE yet. It would really suck if both of these were really nothing more than rumors.
