It’s been a while since I did a review of Hello! Station but this week’s was too full of cuteness to miss.
Well okay not that. The quick talk to camera bit from the Countess is just scary. Well maybe slightly cute too in a masochistic way but let’s not go there.
First up we have the PV to one of Momusu’s new singles. I’m not sure of the name as I just call it “Happy Outfits Time” or “Hot” for short…
I know. But for a sea-based mammal you aren’t doing badly.
Okay. You are very pretty, charming, fun, totally underrated and look like you’d be a great fashion model?
I am so not going there.
Well I love the outfits and the song is better than the bland one they have accompanying it so it’s a thumbs up from me. If that’s not offensive to BiggerBoat. I don’t mean to show off with my opposable digits.
Some chat from the hosts, a live Angerme clip, one of those boring kanji things and Maimai being cute but then…
And Inoue Rei time too!
There’s a playful bit there. Well I say playful but it could have been something they learned when Sayu was leader. During the dance teacher’s Sayu live kiss avoidance lessons. It could have really dark undertones.
Hamachan listening to all her fans. People in China thought there’d been an earthquake. Possibly.
Rei is very likeable too.
Anyway it was a good live performance and the song was very catchy. Not sure why they were singing about ramen though? Kobushi Factory have a rock sound and that appeals to me. It’s something a little different to the other groups and a type of music I like a lot. I hope they continue like this. I’m very positive and excited about the group. It reminds me of how I felt when S/mileage first came along.
Up next is the real centrepiece of the whole show. It’s a Country Girls photoshoot. Outdoors of course because you know…they are country girls.
Ah life in the fast lane. Momo is driving the buggy. Well in Berryz Kobo she was always bugging me. That damn hairstyle.
Ozeki Mai reminds me a lot of Horiuchi Marina. Full of energy, cuteness and happiness.
Morito Chisaki is very cute too.
Inaba Manaka seems happy and lively as well. Well actually they all are. All four of the younger members seem so energetic and happy together. Not to mention photogenic…
And such a princess.
There’s a break for dinner…
Before all the members start riding each other. Well I guess being country girls they are used to riding. If only Miyabi was in the group instead of Momo…
With Momo the riding is less fun and more to do with helping gran get about. Okay she’s not that old but in this group she does seem ancient. All these fresh energetic young girls and there’s Momo being, well…actually quite reserved. Does batshit insanity get cured with age? Actually maybe in some cases.
They finish with ice cream. I’d make an ice cream musume joke here but it’d be a bit crap. So a lot like Ice Cream Musume then. Damn. I did it.
The photoshoot section was really nice to watch. I’m not so into their second single from what I’ve heard so far but I liked the first. Watching this really brought home their sense of togetherness and happiness. Seeing them messing around here showed their fun personalities too. I think Mai is probably my favourite but Chisaki is up there as well. They are such a happy group and it’s great that H!P has a cute group doing cute songs again.
After Country Girls there’s the hair arrangement corner. This week it’s Wada Ayaka the bright and beautiful leader of Angerme. Such a waste. Well actually they are improving since the new members and the name change but those wilderness years still hurt…
And that’s it for another week. I have to say that it was worth watching. Momusu were sparkling in their PV and Kobushi Factory live was a pleasure. It’s good to hear something new from them. I have already pre-ordered the single. Then Country Girls were just adorable. So all in all it was a happy show. Full of energy and beauty and cuteness and dorkiness and love. So perfect idol entertainment then!
