[Rumour] New Hello! Pro Egg Unit

Well, here’s some exciting news! A rumored new unit made up of members from Hello! Pro Egg which will provide the new opening for the anime Shugo Chara. Apparently Buono! will still sing the ending theme.

The members of the unit haven’t been announced yet although their are two speculative groupings that have surfaced on 2ch (and therefore should be taken with more than a pinch of salt):

Group 1:

  • Maeda Yuuka
  • Saho Akari
  • Wada Ayaka
  • Komine Momoko

Group 2:

  • Ogawa Saki
  • Sainen Mia
  • Wada Ayaka
  • Komine Momoko
  • Arai Minami
  • Maeda Yuuka
  • Saho Akari

So it’s quite likely that Maeda Yuuka will be in the group, which is pleasing, I liked her in High-King. Apparently the announcement will be made at a Shugo Chara event next month on 2008-09-20. It’s also rumored that the members who make up this group will be promoted to full member status (in other words graduate from Hello! Pro Egg).

Must stress the details of this rumor are very, very sketchy. Though I’m excited I’d have rather seen SI*NA given the anime opening or at least something, add them to the official website already UFA! Anyway, more details will follow when available!
