Morning Musume 12th Gen Auditions Finished, No Winners Announced

Tsunku declares today that there are no qualified candidates for the 12th gen audition “Mirai Shoujo”. Based on the theme and name “Mirai Shoujo” (girl of the future) Tsunku was looking for a super star to add to the group. However, the performance level of Morning Musume is so high right now that he does not feel it would be appropriate to add anyone into the group at this time. Tsunku also will not be adding anyone from H!P kenshuusei at this time. He does not feel comfortable inserting a new girl into this current lineup. However, that does not mean that the talent and skill level of this group of girls were low. To the contrary, Tsunku feels that he saw many girls who were able to shine throughout the audition. He believes they have plenty of talent, but it just quite isn’t enough to join the group.

He adds that had these girls auditioned at the same time as the 9th gen audition, he would have let them in the group. He feels there are a lot of girls with potential. He does not mean any disrespect toward 9th gen with this statement. He states that since 9th gen joined, they have improved to the point where the current Morning Musume is at the highest level of skill in all of MM history.

Tsunku believes that the potential candidates from this past audition are like raw diamond ores. He is very excited to see what will come of proper refinement. As such, he has invited all of the girls he saw potential in to join H!P kenshuusei to gain more experience. He hopes to unveil them when the proper timing comes along.

In regards to 12th gen audition, he plans to hold another audition again. Essentially re-do 12th gen audition, it will not be considered 13th gen. He also states that he has a lot of things on his mind for the future of H!P – including a new group which could potentially be filled with the girls from this audition. Tsunku has a very positive outlook on everything and hopes you guys will look forward to whats coming next.

"where the current Morning Musume is at the highest level of skill in all of MM history."

I know this is the dumbest thing.

my big brother left the Momosu fandom when they enter the Platinum era TBH I can say the current line up of all H!P now sucks it means not only with the girls but with gimmicks, appeal, shows, music and promotions
sundaetea 25th-Aug-2013 05:31 am (UTC)
What? Are you serious? How does the current line up of H!P suck? This makes me totally confused as I think C-ute, MM, Smileage, & Juice=Juice have really been on their A game with their new releases.

mamoswine1 25th-Aug-2013 06:11 am (UTC)
read carefully; appeal,shows,music, promotion remember they were idols so they were not just selling music
sundaetea 25th-Aug-2013 08:13 am (UTC)
Yes they are idols and are not just selling music, but selling their music has a lot to do with how successful they are. If AKB were not selling millions of copies of their singles, they wouldn't be noticed by the public.

Plus the things you listed, shows, promotion, and music have to do with selling their music. No tv show appearances = no promotion = not a lot of music sold. Also MM currently has had their best round of promotions since having the new kids around.

Then lets make it this short; If they can make a good variety show like their Morning Coffee or Utaban they can gain good popularity unlike their boring shows today were Girls will just nod about grandmas cooking seaweeds and let their management release their inner inside. AKB and its sister group gain its popularity because of that kind of tactics but I doubt they will do that :P they still using the Grandpa's idol formula
sundaetea 26th-Aug-2013 12:41 am (UTC)
The girls don't have any current tv where is the show where the girls nod about grandmas cooking seaweeds?

Got me super butthurt

It's true though. In all aspects except singing basically.
baka_neko3 26th-Aug-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
yep, the singing ain't any better... =.="
sadistic_dance 26th-Aug-2013 01:16 am (UTC)
And even then Platinum Musume had some bad singers too. They had the same two girls singing most of the song the entire time.
baka_neko3 26th-Aug-2013 02:01 am (UTC)
i think the problem with the platinum musume is, the level difference was noticeable.. like, we have 2 who can sing and then the rest who can't sing as good as them... like in the previous era, they were all around the same level (singing ability) so we don't really noticed the difference and all members get to sing different lines in each song...
sadistic_dance 26th-Aug-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
It doesn't matter what level they were on because only AiReinaGakiKame got to sing. Occasionally there would be a little Koharu thrown in because she was the "miracle" member but outside of that the other girls didn't really get to sing.

It's the same now. Actually more girls sing now than in the last era it just so happens that the one Tsunku has decided to focus on, Riho, can't really sing. Certainly not like Takahashi or Reina so it kind of becomes noticeable.
baka_neko3 26th-Aug-2013 03:25 am (UTC)
actually, gaki/kame don't get to sing all that much in the beginning.. it was all ai/reina... at one point it looked like it was a duo of ai & reina with a bunch of dancers at the back...

yeah, the others did sing, but i tend to cringe whenever they sing their lines.. that's why once ai graduated, i lost interest because it's going to be just reina and a bunch of backup dancers.. and not just the singing, the personality of the members were also getting more and more boring... i'm just not interested with anyone in the group anymore...
