I'm assuming they'll start off as an indie group until they decide whether they're keeping them for the long-run.

omg Karin! I was hoping she'd join Morning Musume one day but this is good.

I was actually totally hoping she wouldn't, so I am the happiest person ever right now.

+1
Karin just doesn't seem right for Momusu imo

I just don't want another wota favorite coming in and sucking up all the lines/screentime/ect. a la Riho. Especially since Karin is one of those girls who is alright on stage but really is never interesting off. Plus, I think we have enough higher voices. Sakura's a nice medium, which I think makes her the better addition.

(and idt karin's that cute)

Yeah, that's my main concern that I have with this new group. Karin will be the star, she'll get ALL of the lines and ALL of the screen time. It'll be more like "Karin feat. The Girls" than an actual group. I'm the same as you. I don't hate Karin, I admit she has a nice voice, but I do not see her appeal.

I didn't expect Yuko or Tomoka to be in this unit... at all. I thought that Tomoka was going to be a soloist or something, and I'm super confused about Yuka. Either way, I'm excited. I've been dying for Karin to debut. :)

Ahh yes Aina bby
taylorniw 3rd-Feb-2013 10:18 pm (UTC)
The one I'm happy about the most tbh. I was really rooting for her in the 9th gen auditions.
nyappnyappcafe 4th-Feb-2013 03:33 am (UTC)
Yeah I was really hoping she'd make it, but I can't complain since she's done so well and come pretty far and now she has a possible major debut to show for it. Wonder how things would pan out if Mogi stuck around...

Now hopefully one of these other units has Rie in it and my wishes will be fulfilled. I honestly thinks she should be debuted before than Karin, but oh well. That's just how the cookie crumbles.
taylorniw 4th-Feb-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
I think the top three were obvious choices, but not the bottom three. If they weren't gonna do multiple groups, I totally would've assumed Rie, Karin, Sayuki, Aina, Ayano, Natsumi and maybe Kurumi/Minami would've been the six. Expecting Rie and Ayano to end up in the same group.

I also feel bad that Rie has been a trainee for so long, when Akari and Mizuki, who joined at the same time, are now in groups.

I had an inkling that something was gonna be done with Yuka after they suddenly made her a member of Green Fields. I just didn't think it'd be this soon. She had a bit of appeal during the S/mileage auditions, she just didn't really fit S/mileage.

There has to be something for Rie otherwise the poor baby will probably just be stuck in trainee limbo.

lol they've got a few good vocalists in here, but idt any of them are gonna be a future Airi. She was leagues ahead of all these girls when she was their age.

Yay Karin, Aina and Akari. Yuka is random and Tomoko is too new to have an opinion on. But ugh I really wish Sayuki would be elsewhere. :l
wondermusume 3rd-Feb-2013 10:37 pm (UTC)
yea!!!!!! Karin! I was so disappointed when she couldn't get in s/mileage so I'm glad she's doing this.

Glad that H!P finally get a new group. Also note that "They are the first of the Kenshuushei units that will be announced this year". YEAH.
