And the winner of Morning Musume's 11th generation audition is...

Oda Sakura!

Oda Sakura
Birthday: 3/12/1999
13 years old
Middle School 2nd year
Hometown: Kanagawa Prefecture
Blood type: A
From Hello Pro Kenshuusei

sources: here,here and here

This was probably filmed awhile ago, and I wouldn't doubt if Sakura performed at the concert since they had a matching outfit for her and everything (They also haven't filmed the 51st MV. Think she'll be in it?). My only problem is that while she is good, one girl generations bring about unrealistic expectations and the inevitable comparisons to Goto Maki.

Ueto Aya and Exile's Hiro are officially married


On September 14th, actress Ueto Aya is celebrating her 27th birthday, but that almost fades into the background thanks to the announcement she made on the occasion. All the rumors about her and EXILE’s HIRO (43) have finally come to an end as they announced they have registered their marriage on the 14th.

They have yet to work out their plans and the date for their upcoming wedding reception, but there won’t be an official press conference or anything like that later today.

TOKYO — Six Chinese ships sailed into waters around a disputed archipelago on Friday, with Beijing saying they were there for “law enforcement” around islands Japan nationalized earlier this week.

The move—dubbed “unprecedented” by Tokyo—marked the latest stage in a deteriorating row between Asia’s two biggest economies and came as reports emerged of Japanese nationals being physically attacked in China.

Aya Ueto announces marriage to HIRO, 2ch would rather discuss her handwriting

Check out the handwritten letter in its full size here!

Some comments, courtesy of 2ch:

It may look like good handwriting but it's actually hard to read

Too long


I feel like it's good but I can't read it

Very good

A lot of people write like this

Grandma's handwriting

Some people's handwriting clearly sucks but is super legible. How does that work?

I want her to write it on my dick

She dropped out of high school, please forgive her.

It's long yet well written
