Yaguchi Mari to release colloboration single! 

Hello! Project soloist Yaguchi Mari is to release her first musical project since leaving Morning Musume in 2005 this March 2009! Her first single, which as of yet is untitled, is a duet with Airband who are members of the Hexagon family, who brought us Pabo, Aladdin, Shuchshin and Satoda Mai’s solo works. This is pretty big news as Yaguchi is still a relatively popular variety idol and the only Hello! Project member with her own TV show. The news came as a massive shock to nearly everyone and people all over J-pop forums are going pretty crazy! I appologize for this news being a little late – dealing with Japanese university applications is one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done!
