Today I want to talk about one of my main interests these days: Japanese idols and in particular Hello!Project
I was into the idol world since I was little, thanks to anime like Kodomo no Omocha, Creamy Mami, Mermaid Melody and so on. I didn’t even know what they exactly were, but I knew that I wanted to be an idol too.
When I got access to the internet, I discoverd a whole new world. I found out what an anime was and I started watching them on YouTube. During my first year in High School, I found the anime “Kirarin Revolution”. It was love at first sight
The main character’s voice actress was Koharu Kusumi, a Morning Musume member at that time; I wasn’t really interested in Morning Musume, I just liked Kohacchi and listened to her solo songs.
Then, suddenly, I quite lost my interest in such things. I started doing covers, so I got into Vocaloids for a pair of years. One day, I joined a group who covered H!P songs. I took as a role Hagiwara Mai from °C-ute and started listening to H!P songs more and more.
And then, I fell in love with Michishige Sayumi.
Thanks to her, I developped a real interest for H!P and idol business in all aspects.
So, speaking of H!P, my favorite group is Morning Musume, but I also like the others. The only one I didn’t really like was Berryz Koubou, because neither the songs nor the members did catch my attention Also S/mileage wasn’t really interesting to me, but now I appreciate Angerme more and started to listen to some S/mileage songs as well.
Outside H!P I don’t have any group I’m really fond of. Occasionally I listen to Perfume and in the past I had a little interest for Momoiro Clover Z, but that’s all. I would like to approach the 48-Family (is that its name? I’m not sure) but I find it difficult As for AKB48 I only know Mayuyu thanks to a drama… Recently I listened to some HKT48 songs, but I noticed just a pair of members (above all Sakura, Miku and Nako).
For the future, I plan of doing other posts regarding each H!P group specifically, because I’d like to share my thoughts with you!
Oh, and.. Happy Easter to all of you!
