    News Updates 

    First of all an apology, this website has been terribly out of date lately due to my own busy schedule. Living, working and going to school in Japan is pretty hectic and although I myself keep up to date with J-Pop goings on, I haven’t been updating this website all too often. Furthermore, Hello! Project has overall pretty disappointed me this year so far – not one release has really grabbed my attention, Morning Musume’s last single was particularly a disappointment for me, I found it rather boring!

    Which brings me on to some updates, Morning Musume will release their 43rd single, Seishun Collection on the 9th of June 2010. I’ll hold judgment until I hear a sample though I’m not crazy about the title. It’s also been announced today that Morning Musume will be supporters of the Shanghai Expo 2010 in China, which is a pretty big deal. The expo was pretty hyped about when I was in China last month so I hope Momusu get some good promo out of this.

    In other news, Maeda Yuki’s new PV was released on Dohhup! today – so head over there and check it out!

    If anyone is interested in helping me picking up the slack and writing for TH!P – comment here!

    Maeda Yuki to release 1st Album (2009-09-09) 


    It has been announced that ex-Hello! Project enka extraordinaire Maeda Yuki will release her first album, after nine years in showbusiness on 2009-09-09! Understandably I’m rather shocked by this announcement though it’s most definitely awesome, I’ll definitely be taking a trip out to pick this up!

    The album is titled 全曲集, Zenkyokushuu which literally translates as Complete Song Collection so it’s quite possibly just a collection of all of her singles – it’s safe to see that that will be the bulk of the album anyway! I’m hoping for a few new tracks though! It’ll be good to get the harder to get singles such as Naki Usagi in physical format – I have most of what she’s done but not the early singles!

    Support Maeda and buy this, please!

      I haven’t bought any releases from Maeda Yuki, so this looks like a good one to get.

    Cover for Kenchana ~Daijoubu~ 

    Above you can see the cover for Hello! Project soloist Maeda Yuki’s upcoming 9th and final single with Hello! Project. I think the cover is really pretty special – the picture is beautiful and I love the text-style – I think it’s cool how there is Korean as well!

    I myself haven’t actually heard a preview of the song yet but I’m already quite tempted to buy it – I really like Maeda and I’m sure this will be great. If anyone has a preview or knows of it’s location point me in the right direction please!

    This single is out on 2009-02-25 and will be released on CD and casette as always!

    New Artist Image for Maeda Yuki 

    The Hello! Project website has uploaded a new profile picture for Maeda Yuki presumably in promotion for her 9th single Kenchana ~Daijoubu~ due out on 2008-02-25. I must say it’s refreshing to see her in something other than traditional Japanese dress!

      Oh My God – I actually love this website so much!

    • Caitlin 11:50 pm on 2009-01-29 Permalink | Reply

      Wow I can’t believe she’s finally releasing something. I hope it’s not like a ballad, but something interesting. [though by the look of the picture, it might be something like Okitegami]

    • Alita 3:45 pm on 2009-01-30 Permalink | Reply

      Her new song is gorgeous, I heard it at the Elder Concert. I’m guessing “Kenchana” means “Daijoubu” in Korean as she sings one of the chorus verses in Korean.

      But yes it’s a ballad, but a beautiful one.

    Maeda Yuki – 9th Single (2008-02-25) 

    Yet another unexpected release, this time for enka soloist Maeda Yuki. Her 9th and final single as a Hello! Project soloist will be released on 2009-02-25 and will be titled Kenchana.

    Now just a single for Mikitty and I’ll be satisfied.

    • Kenny Yi 8:21 pm on 2008-12-20 Permalink | Reply

      Wow, huge shock o.O Her last single Ai Ai Daiko was pretty cool, I can’t wait to see what this one’s gonna be like.

    • Reginald 12:44 am on 2008-12-21 Permalink | Reply

      Yes~! I was hoping she’d get one before she was gone.

    • toby 1:07 am on 2008-12-21 Permalink | Reply

      yes, i definitely agree, miki to release a final single under HP. i am just hoping, though highly unlikely, that konno and makoto could form a unit to release a single or something ><

    • Missy 6:09 am on 2008-12-21 Permalink | Reply

      Its awesome she has a single coming.

      Okay this is so off-topic, but I though if anyone would know this it would be you. People I know are saying Shugo-Chara Egg! is releasing a second single in Feb 2009 called Shugo Shugo. Have you heard anything of this??? Cause no one is posting sources, but they are saying it has been confirmed. Could you please help?

    • 亜田夢 6:43 pm on 2008-12-21 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Missy, it’s been confirmed that Shugo-Chara Egg! will release their second single Shugo! Shugo! on 2009-02-21.

    • wilsgun 9:31 am on 2008-12-23 Permalink | Reply

    Ai Ai Daiko Covers / Maeda Yuki New Artist Photo 

    The Hello! Project page has updated Maeda Yuki’s artist photo and discography page with the covers for her forthcoming single Ai Ai Daiko. I absolutely love the cover and her new artist photo is a lot better:
