Official H!P English/French Blog Opened

12 01 2011

An official H!P/UFA blog in English and French titled UP-FRONT LINK has been opened. The blog has been verified by the official H!P site.

I’m really surprised to see that UFA decided to open up a blog with updates from UFA in English and French since I would have never guessed that they would open up a Blogger account to post about news for fans outside of Japan, but I’m glad that they did since it makes it somewhat easier for fans who don’t know Japanese that well to read updates directly from UFA.

According to the site the blog is maintained by someone called Phil who is living in Japan, and while there hasn’t been much info posted (apart from the Morning Musume 9th generation members and Takahashi graduation) I’m glad to see that he knows English and French and will be posting in both languages so that many fans around the world can understand.

For the most part we don’t know what kind of info the blog will contain, but I would guess that he will post about recent general news for the main artists from H!P in order to give fans an introduction to the wide variety of artists that they offer, although it isn’t clear if it will contain up-to-date news as they happen directly from UFA since the blog is still relatively new.

Hopefully we get to find out what kind of updates the blog will offer since it seems like an interesting and fun way for UFA to connect with English and French speaking fans, and while the design is still somewhat simple I look forward to seeing any improvements or news that the site may contain in the future.

I’m really glad that you prefer my blog, but I don’t really think the UF Link blog will post news about H!P, so far they have just done a post a day with a small comment about every performer ^_^

Thank you very much though! ^o^

I’m glad UFA opened two official blogs in English and French.
But I do hope that Phil can come up with a better layout for the banner.
