As all of the former Elder Club are now artists under Up-Front Agency they all have updated profile pages there now and finally Iida Kaori and Tsuji Nozomi have new artist images. Some other soloists have new artist images too – in the case of Miyoshi Erika it’s a better shot of her already existing Hello! Pro profile picture. Iida’s image was last updated in 2005 for the release of her fourth album and Tsuji’s was updated in 2007 for her solo debut. Iida’s page also mentions a special live event which will be entitled 飯田圭織スペシャルライブ2009 at フラミンゴ・ジ・アルーシャ〜Merci pour tout votre amour〜 (Iida Kaori Special Love 2009 at Flamingo the Arusha ~Merci pour tout votre amour~ and will take place on 2009-04-05. Looks like she’s still continuing the Mediterranean / European theme. Interestingly the website is divided into the following sections, i’ve listed all of the people related to Hello! Project and there are some intersting changes such as Okada Yui becoming part of Up-Front Kansai.
Notice that Fujimoto Miki, Mano Erina and Ogawa Makoto are all missing – they are managed of course by J.P.Room.
