    News Round-Up! 

    Well, I’ve not posted in a little while due to various reasons; mainly ilness, school work and computer problems – in that order. Now for a round-up of all o the latest Hello! Project news!

    Morning Musume in the USA!

    Morning Musume will be appearing as the guests of honor at the upcoming Anime Expo ’09 in Los Angeles. There seems to be a pretty concentrated fan effort to welcome them and I’m sure it will be pretty awesome! Pity I don’t live in America!

    Naichau Kamo & Believe in LOVE


    • Morning MusumeNaichau Kamo (38th Single) (Limited A+B with DVD)
    • ravex Believe in LOVE feat. BoA (2nd Single) (Limited with DVD) (Goto Maki featured on b-side)

    These two are pretty big releases and both are pretty nice singles – I really like Naichau Kamo though I think Believe in LOVE is pretty awesome too – Goto Maki’s track is also very nice and of high quality compared to what we were used to her releasing while she was a member of Hello! Project. Naichau Kamo debuted at No.2 in the charts, fell to No.3 and then rose again to No.2 today! Not too bad at all!

    Otome no Inori Covers

    Limited A, B, C & Regular.


    Matsuura Aya’s latest single, Chocolate Damashii fared rather poorly in the Oricon charts selling 4,028 copies in it’s first week and charting at No.19. This is her lowest charting single so far – just goes to show that a more upbeat single won’t necessarily get anymore sells. On a more positive note Satoda Mai’s newest single has now sold 42,131 copies in it’s 5th week of sales and is still charting! The tables have certainly turned in Satoda’s favour since 2007!

    Satoda Mai with Gouda Kyoudai 2nd Single – “Bye Bye” 2009-01-14 

    After the Oricon success of their first single Satoda Mai with Gouda Kyoudai will release their 2nd, more serious sounding single on 2009-01-14. I like the promotional images for the single though the coupling track on their last single was called Bye Bye as well which makes me think that this is little more than a glorified re-release of that with solo tracks from Satoda and Misono included. Not that I wouldn’t love these solos but I don’t know if it justfies another purchase for most people. The included DVD however might just make this a must have! Nevertheless I’m glad Satoda is still getting so much work!!! Pictured below is a low-quality small version of the CD cover and the tracklist;

    CD Tracklist:

    1. Bye Bye
    2. Bye Bye (Satoda Version)
    3. Bye Bye (Misono Version)
    4. Bye Bye (Karaoke)

    DVD Tracklist:

    1. Bye Bye (Multi-Angle Video)
    2. Mou Sugu Christmas (Multi-Angle Vide0)
    3. Special Anime

    New Artist Image for Satoda Mai 

    The Hello! Project Official Website has uploaded a new profile picture for Satoda Mai and I must say Satoda’s looking fiiine! It’s about time she had a new profile picture though I can’t help but feel it’s a little late as she’s graduating in around 4 months.

    Oricon Update 

    Lots of Hello! Project artists are in Oricon this week and I also have the sales figures for some of the artists from last week;

    Milky Way;

    Milky Way’s 2nd, TANTANTAAN!, single ranked at #63 in it’s 3rd week of sales and is currently at 22,624 copies. A lot less than their debut single. It’s currently outside the daily charts.

    Berryz Koubou;

    Berryz Koubou’s 18th single, MADAYADE, single ranked at #50 in it’s 2nd week of sales and is currently at 24,936 copies. Quite a bit lower than their recent releases but not too awful.


    Buono!’s 5th single, Rottara Rottara, ranked at #8 in it’s 1st week of sales with 22,484 copies being sold. It’s currently outside the daily charts but ranked at #12 at the start of the week.

    Satoda Mai;

    Mai’s 2nd single ranked above Buono!’s in it’s 1st week of sales at #7 with sales of 25,788! A great success for Mai, it’s currently at #45 in the dailt charts.


    The Yoshizawa and Ishikawa duet, HANGRY & ANGRY’s debut mini-album debuted at #23 on the daily charts this weekand currently sits at #49. This isn’t actually too awful as it’s an indie release.


    Canaria Club member Ogamana’s debut single Spin Rock debuted at #15 in the daily charts and is at #20 today. This is pretty impressive for a relatively unknown new soloist from a relatively unknown indies group!
