I’m not too pleased with Tanaka Reina being removed from Aa! as I don’t really see why they had to change the line-up of a group that was essentialy still in-tact, nevertheless Saho Akari isn’t a bad performer. I love Linlin and Fukuda Kanon is pretty cute so Shin Minimoni should be alright, the other two are very young. I think Pucchimoni V is a bit of a weak line-up but Nakajima can sing I suppose and Hagiwara and Mano are decent enough. ZYX-a sounds pretty cool though I wish they’d kept Shimizu Saki as a member. Zoku v-u-den is an awesome line-up as I like all of the members though none of them can sing particularly well, I LOVE Junjun though. Tanpopo sounds like it should be a pretty decent line up as they’re all fairly compotent singers!
