The new groups are so follows:
Natsuyaki Miyabi, Suzuki Airi, Saho Akari
Linlin, Fukuda Kanon, Takeuchi Akari, Miyamoto Karin
Nakajima Saki, Hagiwara Mai, Mano Erina
Michishige Sayumi, Junjun, Sugaya Risako
Tokunaga Chinami, Sudou Maasa, Umeda Erika,
Wada Ayaka, Ogawa Saki
The main complaint that I have is Pucchimoni V. ManoEri, Saki, Mai? They don’t fit at all. The original Pucchimoni had much deeper and more powerful voices. This new one seems completely wrong. All three of them are also some of my least favorite voices in all of H!P. This group is utter fail to me.
Zoku Biyuuden, or V-U-DEN whatever you wan to call it, also seems like a weird choice to me. I’m not really sure how much sex appeal these 3 have. Sayumi might have had alluring photobooks, but her overall image and voice is suited for something cuter. I also don’t think JunJun is vocally strong enough for this. Neither is Risako.
I think ZYX-a has too many members. It looks ZYX-a was the group to shove all the members they didn’t know what to do with.
Aa! is a little weird without Reina. They kept Airi and Miyabi in the group, why not Reina too? Especially since Miyabi didn’t even have that many lines in the original.
Other than that I’m happy with the new groups. I kinda expected the new Mini Moni to be Egg heavy. I don’t really mind it. LinLin and Kanon in the group is enough for me. Tanpopo# seems to be a nice balance of vocals. With Aika, Yurina, and Chisato having deeper vocals for the most part will blend together nicely with Eri’s cute voice.
I haven’t heard most of the songs from the album yet. I only heard 3 songs so far. I’m mostly likely going to review the album some time in the future.
