Reborn ~Inochi no Audition~ Stage Play Official Blog Opened

6 09 2011

The official blog for Reborn ~Inochi no Audition~  the stage play has been opened.

Like most blogs for stage plays, this one will be opened temporarily. Though this play has a very mixed cast so regardless of the blog’s short life span I’m looking forward to seeing what they’re all doing together behind the scenes. A summary about the play was released but it doesn’t tell us much so I’m hoping we can get some hints of the play through the blog and when the play does begin I’m looking forward to seeing what the characters are like since we’ve only seen small previews of things.

So far there’s only one post, which is from the staff member announcing that the special blog will start soon. It’s not much a post but hopefully the cast members will start posting and I look forward to it.

Just a reminder the stage play will be from 10/8-10/17, so we can get an idea of how long the blog will be active.

The setlist for Hello! Project Eggs 2011 Happyou Kai ~September no Nama Tamago Show!~ has been released on the official site.

As mentioned on the site the participants might be changed based on the Momusu or S/mileage auditions, so even though Akari or Karin are listed as part of the setlist that doesn’t mean that they haven’t passed either audition since they will simply update the setlist before the show.

That being said only the first three songs have the performers listed, which is usually the way the setlists for the H!P Egg shows are revealed since they show off all of the songs at the beginning and reveal the singers a few at the time. This is the perfect way for fans to know what to expect while still looking forward to the event since there are quite a few combinations we could see for the songs.

The first song hasn’t been revealed as well, which is usually what happens since they want to keep the opening performance a secret, but we should find out what it is in the next few weeks, although the rest of the setlist looks perfect since it features a combination of songs from Morning Musume, Berryz, C-ute, Mini Moni, Tanpopo, among many others giving us a perfect combination of songs to enjoy.

I will update this post with the performers as they are revealed, but apart from that the setlist does look like a great way for fans to enjoy the show since it features a variety of H!P songs so I hope fans who are interested in attending do so since it will be a fun performance to see.

The event will take place on 9/11 at 15:30 and 18:30.

Official H!P Egg Live Site

Hello! Project Eggs 2011 Happyou Kai ~September no Nama Tamago Show!~ Official Site Opened

26 07 2011

An official site for the H!P Eggs event this september titled Hello! Project Eggs 2011 Happyou Kai ~September no Nama Tamago Show!~ has been opened.

The members participating are:

  • Kaneko Rie
  • Takeuchi Akari
  • Miyamoto Karin
  • Katsuta Rina
  • Takagi Sayuki
  • Tanabe Nanami
  • Nagazawa Wakana
  • Kudou Haruka
  • Yoshihashi Kurumi
  • Hamaura Ayano
  • Taguchi Natsumi
  • Otsuka Aina
  • Mogi Minami
  • Ogawa Rena

I’m really happy to see that we finally get the confirmation of the participating eggs in this event, and even though it was pretty clear that the 6 newly added Eggs would take part in the event, it’s still great news for them since we will finally get to see them perform live and see their interaction with the other members and the public.

I’m excited to see what kind of setlist will be performed since there are many new girls that might not be able to handle hard songs and dances, and since the setlist on the site is stated as “Coming Soon“, it should only be a matter of time until we see what kind of songs will be performed, and we finally have newly added official profile pictures and a little biography for each member on the “Profile” section of the site so this should fill anyone’s curiosity about the new members.

I highly encourage everyone in the area during that time to try and attend the event since this new generation of Eggs seems very promising.

The event will take place on 9/11 at 15:30 and 18:30.

Hello! Project Eggs Official Twitter Account Opened

24 07 2011

Hello! Project Eggs have had their official Twitter account opened.

The first tweet was byTaguchi Natsumi:!/helloproegg/status/94938989617881088

I have to say that I’m really happy about this news since this is so far the only social networking service that the Eggs have,and using this twitter account, it will give the chance for the young Eggs to express themselves in various ways, post their pictures of events or of themselves just like in blogs and get connected to their fans in one way or another.

I was surprised to see that the first Tweet was made by Taguchi Natsumi since she is one of the most recent Eggs added, and the most surprising was that she mentionned being the new commerciam girl of the Pizza-La CM that many might remember since Buono! did one a few years back, and I’m really happy for her since she seems to be gaining more attention thanks to her natural charm.

So far there is only 2 Tweets overall but hopefully their page will become active and each Egg will be able to tweet about their daily lives.

Please subscribe to them to show them your support!

S/mileage Audition 2nd Round Live Stream Report

9 07 2011

As most of you might have already seen the 2nd round of S/mileage’s audition was aired live on Nico Nico Douga earlier today, and since some fans might have had some trouble seeing the stream or they couldn’t stay up because it was too late I decided to get as much info as possible into one post so that everyone could check it out.

I did get a chance to check out the stream (about 30 minutes in until all of them started to dance Yume Miru 15) so I have a clear idea about how it looked, but I didn’t watch all of it since it was pretty late (about 3 am where I live). Despite that I hope you enjoy the details of this post since there will be quite a lot of photos and videos showing off most, if not all, auditioners.

The post is really, really long and full of pictures and a few videos, so check it out after the break:

3 New Eggs Have Joined Hello! Pro Eggs

19 06 2011

Three new Eggs were reported to have joined Hello! Pro Eggs at today’s Shiodome AX event.

From left to right: Yoshihashi Kurumi, Taguchi Natsumi, Hamaura Ayano (some sites have her name as Hamaura Ayumi)

I am very surprised that after the large amount of graduations a few months ago there were some new additions today since I expected the few remaining members to stay unchanged for a while, but despite that I am very happy that there are additions since that means that the group will be more balanced out a bit during performances.

As for the new Eggs they are relatively young: Kurumin (Yoshihashi Kurumi) is in 6th grade while the two youngest members Tagucchi (Taguchi Natsumi) and Hamachan (Hamaura Ayano) are in 5th, which is pretty normal for H!P Eggs since members are usually around that age group.

From the photos on the poster above Kurumin seems to be a bit more relaxed (or nervous, it’s hard to tell) which is a good thing to see since that might help her when she performs. Tagucchi and Hamachan both look pretty excited in their photos so it will be fun to see if their performances are also full of energy, but from what I can tell all three of them look like perfect additions since they seem to have the H!P look already (at first I thought Kurumin was Kanon or Wada with long hair).

We haven’t seen many photos of them since the only ones we have are from the poster which was displayed at the event, but I am looking forward to seeing how talented they are since they seem to be like great additions to the group, and while their next will be in September we might get to see them in next month’s FC Egg events.

For now I’m glad to see that Eggs are still joining and I am excited to find out how great they sing and/or dance.

The FC events will be in July and the concerts will be on 9/11 at 15:30 and 18:30 at Yokohama BLITZ.

Hello! Pro Egg FC Events and Concerts Announced

7 06 2011

FC Events and two concerts for Hello! Project Eggs have been announced.

The FC events were announced on the FC site and according to the details there will be 4 dates:avatar

  • 7/12 – Kaneko Rie, Katsuta Rina, Takagi Sayuki, Kudo Haruka
  • 7/13 – Takeuchi Akari, Miyamoto Karin, Tanabe Nanami, Nagasawa Wakana
  • 7/14 – Kaneko Rie, Takeuchi Akari, Miyamoto Karin, Kudo Haruka
  • 7/19 – Katsuta Rina, Takagi Sayuki, Tanabe Nanami, Nagasawa Wakana

There will also be two concerts in September.

Since there are only about 8 members of H!P Eggs left it seems like a good way to give them some promotion, and while there might not be as many H!P Egg fans attending the events (since there were many graduations in the past few months) I look forward to finding out how many there will be at the events and what the H!P Eggs will do.

The FC events will most likely be like the others and it seems that there will be two appearances by each member (the first two days in a pattern, and the next two mixed up) with four members each day, which seems like a great way for fans to enjoy the appearance of different Eggs and to encourage fans to attend all events.

The concerts were announced a while ago in the FC newsletter but I’m glad to see that they will have another concert since it has been quite some time since they last appeared to perform together, and while attendance might be a bit lower than usual and there are only two performances I look forward to finding out what songs they will sing.

Despite the many graduations in the past few months (both announced and unannounced) it’s great to see that the remaining Eggs have been given a chance to still appear and perform in front of fans, and while there will be slightly less variety I look forward to finding out just how the Eggs will do in their performances.

The FC events will be in July and the concerts will be on 9/11 at 15:30 and 18:30 at Yokohama BLITZ.

Saho Akari To Complete Her Egg Training, Hello! Pro Egg Shiodome AX Event Rescheduled

18 04 2011

According to a recent FC announcement Saho Akari will finish her training before the rescheduled event for Hello! Pro Egg’s Shiodome AX.

The announcement was done somewhat quickly and without any details since it was mentioned in about one sentence underneath the info for the H!P Egg rescheduled event, which is very disappointing since I would have liked to see a more detailed post about what she is planning to do after.

Despite that I am a bit worried since the already small lineup of Eggs is getting even smaller with the graduation of the current unofficial leader Saho, which leaves only 9 Eggs for the scheduled event, a really small amount compared to their last event.

Most likely we will see even more Eggs graduate as the months go by although it seems that there will be 9 Eggs for the event at Shiodome for sure, but hopefully we get to find out what will happen to the Eggs since there has been a massive amount of “training completions” in the past few months.

There are no details about what Saho will do once she completes her training, but according to some fans more details will be released soon so hopefully we get to find out whether she will focus on acting, singing, or do something else, although I hope we get to see her sing some more since she is a really talented singer.

Hopefully Egg fans decide to attend the event since the large amount of graduations will no doubt have a large effect on the number of fans left (since with every graduation not only does the member leave, the fans most likely leave with her), but I hope we can find out what kind of songs the Eggs will sing or what they will do at the event.

The H!P Egg Shiodome AX Event will be on 6/19.

Official FC Announcement About H!P Egg AX Event

Hello! Pro Eggs Event Announced

18 02 2011

A new event for H!P Eggs titled Hello! Pro Egg Haru Mankai Special in Shiodome AX has been announced.

The eggs participating in the event are : Saho Akari, Kaneko Rie, Takeuchi Akari, Miyamoto Karin, Katsuta Rina, Takagi Sayuki, Tanabe Nanami, Nagasawa Wakana and Kudo Haruka (The participants may change according to the website).

It’s really great to see that the Eggs will be able to hold a special event to show off their talent, and even though not everyone is participating, the ones chosen are among the best performers and will surely entertain everyone who comes.

It was mentioned that a handshake event will also follow where fans will be able to talk with their favorite members, which is always great to see.

Hopefully more details are released soon.

The event will take place on 3/26.
