    Hello! Project 2009 Winter Wonderful Hearts Tour Begins! 

    2009-01-02

    18:00: Hello! Project 2009 Winter Wonderful Hearts Kouen ~Kakumei Gannen~ @ Nakano Sun Plaza

    This year’s winter Wonderful Hearts tour began today and is presumably the last under the current Wonderful Hearts / Elder Club arrangement! The set-list is below with a tiny review of each track from the live recording I’ve heard;

    1. Resonant BlueWonderful Hearts
      • I really like Resonant Blue and this performance was good, not breathtaking or as good as Morning Musume’s own performance of it at their last spring concert.
    2. LALALA Shiawase no UtaWonderful Hearts
      • I’m not a massive fan of this song but it works quite well in concerts I suppose.
    3. Minna no TamagoShugo-Chara Egg
      • I don’t have this track on my i-pod so I haven’t listened to it very often but it’s quite cute and I’m glad these girls are getting some work. It was okay in concert, not mind blowing or anything.
    4. Hapi Hapi SundayKusumi Koharu
      • Um what, I sort of enjoyed this…It’s the first time I’ve heard the song and it’s definitely it’s first live performance. It was a cute song and so much better than her last single which was more than a bit of a disaster in my eyes.
    5. TANTANTAANMilkyWay
      • Like the last song this was really cute, Kikkawa has an amazing voice. I don’t like the song itself that much though this wasn’t a bad performance.
    6. FOREVER LOVEC-ute
      • C-ute are awesome and really owned 2008, this performance was awesome and the crowd were pretty into it. They all sounded really good and this song has definitely grown on me.
    7. Meguru Koi no KisetsuC-ute, Tanaka Reina & Mitsui Aika
      • This is quite possibly my least favourite C-ute song though I can see that it is a good crowd motivator. I didn’t think this performance was particularly special and although the addition of Reina and Mitsui was a bit random they sounded good with C-ute, they didn’t add too much though.
    8. MADAYADE – Berryz Koubou
      • I LOVE and I think the concert performance was pretty reasonable though I have to say I don’t think Berryz are as good as cute and that pains me to say as I actually think I prefer Berryz better as a group of people, just not so much as singers. Not a bad performance but not on par with C-ute.
    9. Koi no JubakuSudou Maasa, Kumai Yurina, Tokunaga Chinami, Sugaya Risako, Kamei Eri & Michishige Sayumi
      • Okay I absolutely LOVE this song, it’s perhaps my favourite Berryz Koubou song and I love that they brought in Kamei and Michishige. Risako sounded awesome and I have to say Michishige sounded lovely – a lot better than when she performed the song solo on Hello! Pro Hour in 2006. This was a lot better than MADAYADE and the crowd really got going.
    10. Lalala-SososoMano Erina
      • I really like Mano Erina and I think this song is really cute but I have to say, her voice is very grating and a little painful to listen to at times. It’s a cute melody but not exactly crowd pleasing. This was a little lame.
    11. Rottara RottaraBuono!
      • Buono! are awesome and this song is really catchy and fun, it was a good performance and Suzuki Airi really sounded very good!
    12. Naichau KamoMorning Musume
      • This single is really cool and I hope it manages to sell a little more than Pepper Keibu. Again I think Michishige stood out during this performance, her singing has really improved! Everyone sounded pretty good and of course Takahashi Ai owned the song.
    13. MikanMorning Musume with Yajima Maimi & Sugaya Risako replacing Takahashi Ai & Tanaka Reina
      • I’m not quite sure why Risako and Maimi replaced Morning Musume’s front girls for this song but it worked quite well. For some reason I found it funny hearing Risako singing this song – she sounded good though and I’m really thinking she needs another project as well as Berryz – I’d consider buying solo releases from her, I liked REAL LOVE! This was a pretty good performance, Mikan is actually a good song!
    14. Dschinghas KhanWonderful Hearts
      • Everyone reunited for this song and it wasn’t a bad performance but for some reason it felt a little lacklustre.
    15. Shiroi TokyoNiigaki Risa, Tokunaga Chinami, Sudou Maasa, Nakijima Saki, Hagiwara Mai & Mano Erina
      • An interesting group singing this really fun ZYX song. I think it worked out quite well and I like that Chinami had a solo line. Hagiwara sounded great in particular and the crowd got into this.
    16. Natsu Doki LipstickYajima Maimi, Kikkawa Yuu, Maeda Yuuka, Fukuda Kanon, Sekine Azusa, Saho Akari, Ogawa Saki
      • I like this song but I thought it was a little bit of an odd choice straight after Shiroi Tokyo which had a very wintry feel compared to this evidently summer song. Yajima sounded good which she should, this is afterall her solo song. Some of the Hello! Pro Egg sounded a little shaky but nonetheless not bad.
    17. Baka ni ShinaideShimizu Saki, Natsuyaki Miyabi, Kumai Yurina & Sugaya Risako
      • This is a really good song and I like this small grouping, their voices work well together. I was pleased to hear captain getting some singing opportunities, she’s not half bad. Risako was very prominent as always here and I think the weakest was probably Yurina.
    18. Mr.Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~Takahashi Ai, Umeda Erika, Tokunaga Chinami, Nakijima Saki, Okai Chisato, Arihara Kanna, Saho Akari, Sekine Azusa
      • This was a pretty interesting performance with really only one powerful voice (Takahashi) who led most of the performance. In fact it was almost a solo performance with the other girls doing backup.
    19. Soku, DakishimeteC-ute
      • This is one of C-ute’s best songs in my opinion but without Megumi it doesn’t have the same punch as it once did. Nevertheless this was a good performance, especially for so late in the concert.
    20. Gag 100kaibun AishitekudasaiBerryz Koubou
      • Seems like someone was taking a strip down memory lane for Berryz and C-ute when they choose the last two songs, this being from 2005. It wasn’t a bad performance but a little dull compared to Soku, Dakishimete.
    21. Darling I LOVE YOUBerryz Koubou & C-ute
      • This shared coupling track is actually pretty good and this collaborative effort allowed the song to sound more powerful than it usually would. A pretty good performance!
    22. Take off is nowTanaka Reina, Takahashi Ai & Niigaki Risa
      • I’m not familiar with this song but the performance was pretty interesting, I liked the rhythm and everyone sounded pretty good – Tanaka’s voice actually annoyed me a bit though for some reason.
    23. Renai Revolution 21Morning Musume
      • Some retro-Musume! This was a pretty standard performance of the song and all I could think about during it was Ice Creamusume’s cover! Not a bad performance but we’ve seen it before, a lot!
    24. Guru Guru JumpWonderful Hearts
      • Another song I wasn’t too familiar with – It was a pretty fun performance and although the singing was a little weak in certain areas the crowd were pretty into it.
    25. Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou? – Wonderful Hearts
      1. I love this song a lot and the last concert performance of it was pretty spectacular. The Chinese part is my favorite mainly for the awesomeness of Linlin! I can’t wait to hear Ice Creamusume’s version of it! This performance was nice if not a bit shouty!

    Overall a not bad setlist, I’ve heard some people complaining that it’s a little bit boring and while it’s not the best setlist that Wonderful Hearts have done it’s by no means bad! I’d have liked a bit more Junjun / Linlin – I won’t give up hope!

    I’m looking forward to the elder club concert a little bit more which begins on 2009-01-10!

    • nadirahani 8:06 am on 2009-01-05 Permalink | Reply

      take off is now is a song by Ai-chan, Gaki-san, and Reina
      guru guru jump is a song by Koharu, Junjun, and Linlin…

      thanks for the setlist…. wonder why they want to sing Meguru Koi no Kisetsu, Natsu Doki Lipstick, and Soku Dakishimete… I am looking forward Koi no Jubaku, I mean all except three song from above, Lalala Shiawase no Uta, and Mr Moonlight…

      and I can’t find Guru Guru jump on youtube anywhere.
      But I know both songs were in there last concert too.
      So was a solo song by Aika : D

      I think tsunku give the good songs to C-ute than berryz koubou, and I still don’t understand why tsunku give risako solo song & alot of solo line in berryz koubou. Now I just knew it that the rest of the girls have a really good voices than her. And I think in C-ute, only Airi & Maimi who sings all the songs

    Hello! Project 2008 Summer Wonderful Hearts Kouen ~Hishochi de Date Itashima Show~ – Initial Thoughts 

    Wow, long post title. Anyway this is just a little song by song review of the 2008-07-19 Osaka performance of the ongoing Wonderful Hearts tour. i haven’t done one of these for a while so don’t expect any professional musical analysis as you’ll end up rather disappointed!

    Opening

    The opening music reminded me strangely of the opening music to “Super Mario 64.”

    1. Natsu LOVE Romance – All

    I’d never actually heard this song before as I don’t have Pucchi Best 4, it’s a pretty solid summer song and and I think everyone sounded pretty decent. It was fun though I wonder if another song with a little more “wow factor” would have been a better concert opener. Nevertheless I’m pleased that they’re starting to expand the number of songs the girls actually sing and we get to hear many more live performances of things that had previously gone untouched in concert. 6/10

    2. Manatsu no Kousen – All

    This song used to bore me and was one of my least favourite Morning Musume songs however due to all the recent concert performances it’s climbing in my rankings and I’m actually starting to enjoy it rather a lot! The singing her sounds pretty good and although I can’t identify all of all the solo lines the few solos that there are sound good. 7/10

    3. Edo no Temari Uta II – C-ute

    C-ute’s upcoming 6th major single Edo no Temari Uta II is the best thing I’ve heard from them since Tokaikko Junjou. I just love the fresh sounding melody, it’s something a bit different for C-ute. When C-ute are opening this song the crowd go pretty wild which is nice to hear. The singing here is very impressive in my opinion although Maimi does sound a little shaky. The main thing I like about this song is the musical arrangement, I just can’t get over how good it sounds, is that just me? Overall a good performance. 8/10

    4. Namida no Iro – C-ute

    The crowd really get into this one and with good reason, it’s a pretty awesome song. I think the singing sounds a little weaker here than with Edo no Temari II, again especially with Maimi. I think I just have a problem with her voice! Overall this is a good performance and no complaints can be made really! 7/10

    5. Papancake – Kusumi Koharu

    Okay, I’m going to try and remain open minded about this despite how dubious I find Kusumi’s solo career. I like the opening of the song and the singing sounds spot on though I very much doubt it’s completely live. This song has actually grown on me a little and maybe after a few listens I could grow to tolerate it? Overall Kusumi makes a good performance however lipsynced it may be, I supposed I’d need to see this one to properly review it. 6/10

    7. Anataboshi – MilkyWay

    This was one Kirarin Revolution song I did actually like when it was released, possibly because the inclusion of Kikkawa Yuu and Kitahara Sayaka. It doesn’t sound like the Eggs are lip-syncing but again I’m pretty sure Kusumi is. It’s a good performance and there aren’t any real flaws, Kitahara sounds a little quiet though that isn’t a real niggle. 7/10

    8. Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance – Berryz Koubou

    This song has risen to the top of my most played list, I seriously find it addictive! Again I like how the crowd get into this one. Sugaya sounds pretty good which isn’t something you’d usually find me saying, she does mess up a little at one part though I don’t this detracts from the performance really. 8/10

    9. Dschinghis Khan – Berryz Koubou / Hello! Pro Egg

    So…are Hello! Pro Egg like members of Wonderful Hearts now or something? They’re getting to sing. I really enjoyed this fun song when it was released though I know some Berryz fans aren’t too keen on it. It’s performed equally as well as Yuke Yuke if not slightly better, it’s possibly improved by the inclusion of Hello! Pro Egg. All of the solos present are performed well and I have no qualms with this! 8/10

    10. Resonant Blue – Morning Musume

    The opening to this sounds very promising though once we’re into the actual song Tanaka’s solo lines sound a little shaky to me. Takahashi sounds amazing as always, her voice sounds strong! Overall the song sounds great, I feel like I’m becoming a bit of a broken record as I don’t really have any criticisms for the songs so far! 8/10

    11. Mikan – Morning Musume

    Although I actually prefer Resonant Blue as a song I find Mikan to be a more “concert appropriate” one. I think it performs well and manages to get the crowd going. Yet again I don’t have any problems with the singing and I actually prefer the line distribution in this song (not just Takahashi / Tanaka with a sprinkle of Kusumi.) 8/10

    12.KoiINGTakahashi Ai / Noto Arisa / Sengoku Minami / Sawada Yuri / Mori Saki / Kitahara Sayaka / Kikkawa Yuu / Maeda Yuuka / Fukuda Kanon

    So we have Takahashi and a whole troop of Eggs singing this popular coupling track from Morning Musume’s Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~ I really like this song and unfortunately it opens a little weak, the singing sounds a bit too shaky, this continues for a little while and then it picks up towards the chorus. As the song goes on the singing improves and it starts to sound very good, I find it hard to identify all of the voices as I don’t really know a few of the featured Hello! Pro Egg members too well. Overall I have to say I liked this performance, I’m really glad that Hello! Pro Egg are getting more exposure this year 7/10

    13. Hajimete Kuchibiru wo Kasanata Yoru – Linlin / Suzuki Airi / Ogawa Saki

    I Love, Love, Love this Matsuura Aya song and love hearing it performed in concert. This is possibly one of the oddest groupings I’ve seen of late but I’m glad Linlin is getting some solo exposure for once! They all carry the song as good as can be expected, after all none of them can really match Matsuura’s ability. It’s becoming evident how popular Ogawa Saki has grown this year, she’s quickly becoming one of best known Hello! Pro Egg members. The performance was very good but I feel it was possibly a little too challenging for this trio. 6/10

    14. Chu! Natsu Party – Michishige Sayumi / Sugaya Risako

    Sticking to the summer theme with 3nin Matsuri’s chart topping single, Chu! Natsu Party. We’ve seen this pairing before at the last big Hello! Project concert and I have to say they work pretty well together. This song fits both of their unique singing voices pretty well and I can’t wait to actually see it performed! I find it a little strange that they didn’t create a trio for this song but nevertheless Michishige and Sugaya pull it off. 7/10

    15. C\C (Cinderella Complex) – High-King

    This is High-King’s concert debut and it opens very well, everything sounds perfect, perhaps a little too perfect. The song isn’t lip-synced however as I can hear the shakiness in the singing at times and I’d have to say the most guilty of this is Maimi. I really liked this song when it came out and got a little addicted to it though that’s worn off now I still enjoy listening to it. Everyone sounds good, even with the shakiness. 7/10

    16. Kioku no Meiro – High-King

    The c/w to C\C (Cinderella Complex) is pretty epic and actually fitting to be a title track in itself I feel. It’s good that they choose to perform this in concert as this is perhaps the last time we’ll see High-King as a group. I think this actually sounds a lot better than the previous song and it’s performed quite a bit better. Is that a piano I hear opening the song as well, Mano Erina? 8/10

    17. Manopiano – Mano Erina

    Because it’s only an audio recording I can’t tell if Mano is accompanying herself in this live, it would be awesome if she was though. Mano’s singing sounds strangely perfect and I wonder if she’s lip-syncing? This is after all her Wonderful Hearts debut, maybe they choose to play it safe? Either way I really like Mano Erina and this is the most recent single I’ve bought. I was hoping for some sort of announcement of her next solo work or maybe another performance of another song but unfortunately nothing of the sort was mentioned. Later on in the song it sounds like she slips up a little which makes me question if it is lip-synced but due to the quality of the recording I can’t really tell. 7/10

    18. Tokonatsu Musume – Niigaki Risa / Kamei Eri / Mitsui Aika

    Ah how nostalgic! A Coconuts Musume song! It pleases me that they’re still performing songs of disbanded units, how about some Sheki-Dol, Tsunku? I’ve always really liked this song and I think this trio do a decent job of singing it, Niigaki’s voice somehow doesn’t fit however, Kamei on the other hand sounds excellent. 6/10

    19. Tropica~l Koishite~ru – Junjun / Sudou Maasa / Kumai Yurina / Okai Chisato / Hagiwara Mai / Arihara Kanna / Noto Arisa / Sengoku Minami / Sawada Yuri / Mori Saki / Kitahara Sayaka / Kikkawa Yuu

    A big group performance of basically everyone who hadn’t had a smaller group performance up until now! I really like how well they’re sticking to the summer theme, Hello! Project concerts are often all over the place. I can’t really identify the voices too well but I can say that Junjun sounded pretty good and as a group they sounded good together, they all seemed to fit quite well. 8/10

    20. Kousui – Tanaka Reina / Shimizu Saki / Tokunaga Chinami / Umeda Erika / Nakajima Saki

    This is quite an interesting group of people, my favourite Berryz and C-ute members are in there. I found this performance a little bit boring though and the singing sounded a little lackluster. Maybe they were tired? Towards the end it picks up quite a bit though and the singing does sound pretty good from Tanaka. 5.5/10

    21. Gachinko de Ikou! – Buono!

    I really liked this song, I’d never listened to a rip before but It’s a really rather good and certainly gets the crowd going. I’ve never had too much interest in Buono! before as it doesn’t really consist of anybody I have a particular fondness for. This is a good performance though and I can’t deny that their musical style is pretty cool. 7/10

    22. Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! – Buono!

    Much like the last song I haven’t really listened to this much but I though it sounded pretty good and Buono! could grow on me, all of the vocals were spot on. I think I prefer this to Gachinko de Ikou! just because the chorus sounds so awesome. 7/10

    23. Egao YES Nude – Morning Musume

    I like the crowd reaction to this song and love Takahashi’s “growl” at the start. The singing throughout this song sounds brilliant on all accounts! I still really like Mitsui’s solo though it’s hard to hear through the cheering! This in my opinion is Morning Musume’s best performance of the night. 9/10

    24. Massara Blue Jeans – Berryz Koubou / C-ute

    Seems like the Berryz / C-ute joint performances don’t end with their recent concert. This is a good performance of one of my favourite C-ute songs and the wota go pretty crazy for it, probably all the thrusting. 8/10

    25. Special Generation – Berryz Koubou / C-ute

    This is quickly becoming the LOVE Machine of Berryz Koubou, I think Tsunku needs to move on! I like this song a lot though it’s definitely getting to the stage that it is over-performed. Nevertheless this is a pretty good performance though not as good as Massara Blue Jeans in my opinion. 7/10

    26. Love & Peace! HERO ga Yattekita – All

    This seems to be a pretty popular coupling track, it’s performed pretty well and it definitely works in concert. I’ve never really listened to it, I’m ashamed to admit that I often ignore it but I’ll definately be looking out my copy of THE Manpower!!! now. 7/10

    27. Ame no Funari Hoshi de Aisenai Darou – All

    Oooh, mysterious, a new song! It has a gentle melody and opens nicely with nice sounding harmonies. It’s got a very plesant tune and Junlin even get a line or two in Chinese which was bound to happen at some point! The Chinese parts are probably my favourite parts of the song. It’s a nice song but perhaps a little strange song to choose as the ending to a concert. 8/10

    I wrote this review as I listened so it’s probably a little piece-meal! I found it to be a good concert overall and am particularly interested in what will become of the ending song.

      SINGING?!
      MADNESS.

      No.

      SPARTAA.

      Excusing my nerdiness above, whoa. This concert seems really awesome, I love how they grouped people together. I guess Mano Erina would lipsync since she’s still not vocally trained to that…er, “Hello! Project” ranking. I’m really loving the BK and C-ute switchups though, I love seeing them perform each others songs.

      I can’t wait to see/hear it =P

    18:00: Hello! Project 2008 Summer Wonderful Kouen ~Hishochi de Date Itashima SHOW~ @ Osaka Welfare Pension Center (Big Hall)

    Today begins the Hello! Project Wonderful Hearts tour, somewhat disappointed that there is no Elder Club equivalent though Mano Erina does debut as a member of Wonderful Hearts, that’s pretty cool at least!

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

      I’m sure that they have an elder club fall tour though, especially since it seems that this summer much of elder club is relatively busy, as far as I can remember.

      I hope so.

    • Mierna 9:18 am on 2008-07-19 Permalink | Reply

      ^ No, I think it’s just because UFA has now found Wonderful Hearts to be their priority, and that practically everyone in the Elder Club is slowly straying away from H!P…-.-;;

      They pimp what sells, it’s fair enough. Though on the other hand if they actually had some decent promotion for the Elder Club it might sell. It’s a bit like they can’t be bothered making the effort.

      They would do them if they were given them though.

      I’m not too upset. Most of elder club IS straying away from H!P. Wonderful Hearts is where the money is at. I think that the big names (Ayaya,Nacchi,Biyuuden) in Wonderful Hearts should make special appearances in the Wonderful Hearts concerts instead of making a whole concert for ALL of them.

    Hello! Project 2008 Winter ~Wonderful Hearts Nenjuu Mu Kyuu~ Set List 

    The set list to the Hello! Project 2008 Winter ~Wonderful Hearts Nenjuu Mu Kyuu~ has been revealed and there’s some songs I’m looking rather forward to. The artists are as usual; Morning Musume, C-ute, Berryz Koubou & Hello! Pro Egg. As v-u-den has been moved to the Elder Club they won’t be appearing. In brackets I’ll put my anticipation rating for the song and it’s performers, a scale of 1-5 as always.

    24. Renai Sentai Shitsu Ranger – Takahashi Ai, Niigaki Risa, Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina, Mitsui Aika, Tsugunaga Momoko, Sugaya Risako & Natsuyaki Miyabi (2)

    30. Hand Made CITY – Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou & °C-ute (3)
    31. Nanni mo Iwazu ni I LOVE YOU – All (2)

    I’m sort of shocked (and ecstatically pleased) that they’re performing a W song, I very much doubted this would ever happen and I’m pleased JunJun and LinLin are performing Ai~n! Dance no Uta, that’s a really fun song. Otherwise the acts are pretty good, there has been better and of course worse, overall I’m looking most forward to the Elder Club concert though.

      Like I said the tour is currently happening, the DVD won’t be released for a little while obviously.

      Ugh. I love W so much, but Sayumi singing the song will just ruin it for me. XDXDXDXD

      Is this just the Osaka show, or will these songs be on the Jan. 26-27 concert at Yokohama Arena as well?

      I’m pumped about the return of “Oujisama to Yuki no Yoru.” “Renai Sentai…” seems a bit too loaded. They should have just given it to HPK.

      Interesting that “Special Generation” is now a C-ute and Berryz song. And I haven’t heard “Nanimo Iwazuni…” in forever. Overall, there’s a nice mix of songs here.

      Ahhh…I don’t want Sayumin singing W…. =3=” Rather that Eririn or somebody better did it~~ Either way!! I’m excited!! (I want to see some of this online!!)

      Also, I’m happy that v-u-den’s out of Wonderful Hearts, since I never thought they fit in…they don’t fit the title ‘Elder Club’, mind you. XD

      I’m happy that older songs are being performed from groups other than MoMusu, like the Nochiura Natsumi single and the MiniMoni song~~ (Also W)

      Excitement!! XD X3

      Um, when a video of the whole concert or like.. parts show up, can you post links or something?

      I have a fan recording of the concert of this. And to tell the truth what should be more worried about is Risako’s high notes then Sayumi’s singing. It’s not actually half bad. She just needed a stronger voice for it. But I’m happy to hear all these songs again. And the Athena & Robikerottsu is pretty darn catchy. And of course the Ai~n is always good. Eri is really good in this.

      Yay! This means UFA & Hello! Project arent completely ignoring the fact that W existed! XD

      W had great songs…it will be nice to see them being performed by other H!P members =)
