Site News: Small break from exams during this weekend so I will use this opportunity to finish updating the Upcoming Releases section since there have been quite a few releases announced this week, so please look forward to that.
Apart from that I will continue to update the Profile section since not much progress was done last weekend due to some urgent work I had to do, but I am currently working on a few profiles as I write this so at least look forward to a few of them being updated by today.
Before I finish them I will do a quick post detailing everything that happened today at Berryz Koubou’s appearance at Sakura-con, and while there doesn’t seem to be that many fan stories about what happened there are plenty of pictures that were posted, both by fans and by staff, so the post will most likely be very image heavy.
So while I am still looking for fan accounts about what exactly happened I will start work on the post and organize the post with the info that I have from JPC and H!O.
Other than that there will be updates for sure in at least two sections of the site as well as a daily update of what happened at Berryz Koubou’s appearances at Sakura-con, so please look forward to that!
Polls: The winner for this poll was Suzuki Kanon with 362 votes (35%), congratulations Kanon! Sayashi Riho came in second with 319 votes (31%), Fukumura Mizuki came in third with 198 votes (19%), and Ikuta Erina came in fourth with 157 votes (15%).
There was a total of 1,036 votes for this poll.
Here are the results for the first 9th gen poll so that fans can compare the results:
The winner for this poll was Sayashi Riho with 400 votes (40%), congratulations Riho! Suzuki Kanon came in second with 302 votes (30%), Fukumura Mizuki came in third place with 180 votes (18%), and Ikuta Erina came in fourth place with 117 votes (12%).
There was a total of 999 votes for this poll.
As you can tell there was an increase of voters in the poll although the biggest surprise is that instead of Riho dominating this poll Kanon won instead with a pretty big lead over Riho!
At the beginning of the week I thought that Riho would win once again since she seems to have a pretty solid fan base when the members of the 9th generation were picked, but it seems that Kanon has won many fans over with her great personality and genki energy (most notably her bug monomane).
Apart from that Mizuki and Ikuta had the same positions as the first poll, although everyone seems to have increased in votes (except for Riho), which is pretty impressive since the PV and the many TV appearances the 9th generation have been on most likely gave fans a chance to check out their personalities and as a result we have a pretty big change compared to the first impression they had on fans.
Since this was the 2nd poll with all four members I will now mix them up with the other members so that we get a chance to find out how everyone would do against other H!P members, like Sayu, Gaki, Ai, Momo, Airi or Mano, so everyone please look forward to future polls featuring Mizuki, Ikuta, Riho and Kanon.
Congratulations to Kanon on winning her first poll and good luck to Riho, Mizuki, and Ikuta in their next polls!
Next poll will feature Mitsui Aika, Mano Erina, and Kikkawa Yuu, and since there doesn’t seem to be any member that has an advantage it should be a pretty close result, although I hope everyone votes for their favorite so we can find out who will be the next H!P member of the week.
Just a reminder for those who don’t vote: If you do have a chance please vote since it only takes two clicks and you help your favorite member appear as member of the week!
To make it easier for fans I will provide the direct link to the poll HERE.
Shuukan Yoro: It’s the 4th day of Tokunaga Chinami’s week about “Ecology”.
Today’s theme is “more efficient eco goods” and as the theme suggests we get a chance to find out about goods such as a faucet head that saves water, an electric powered hand warmer, a humidifier, and a spinning electric charger.
Apart from Chii talking about the items there isn’t much interaction apart from Miya mentioning that she bought a smaller version of the humidifier, but the episode gives us a pretty interesting look at items recommended by Chii to help preserve the environment.
Next episode we will see all of the members making eco bags, so please look forward to that, but until then please check out this episode:
