Kusumi Koharu Model Guest On “Kobe” Fashion Show

11 08 2011

Kusumi Koharu is set to be a model guest on the 2011 Fall/Winter Kobe Collection Fashion Show.

As some might remember, Koha has been features in CanCan magazine a few month ago, which is a very popular fashion magazine, and she has stated that it was a dream of hers to be featured there, so I’m really happy to see that her modeling career is slowly starting to evolve since she will be in the Kobe Collection fashion show as a model guest among many other celebrities and fashion people.

Even though I usually don’t pay that much attention to fashion shows, I’m always delighted to see H!P and ex-H!P members take part in those since it’s one of the many ways to promote themselves, and the nice thing about Koha’s appearance is that she is stated under the category “Guest Model” with a little flower saying Debut on her picture, which might drag more attention to her, people being curious to know what she’s capable of, and hopefully this will help her get noticed.

They seem to have given each model a link to their official site/blog (thanks to Estelle for the correction) for the event where many info are displayed, and in Koha’s case, it’s a link to her official site in her agency and she has a huge recent picture of her along with a banner on the top featuring links to her blog, links to purchase her releases,etc… as well as a little space where her recent activity is featured and a little menu (Home, Profile, Media, Discography,etc…).

Overall, I’m really happy for Koha since she’ll finally be able to do what she has always wanted to after graduating, so hopefully she’ll enjoy herself in her modeling career.

Hopefully everyone can take a look at her website and specially the gallery!

The show will take place on 9/4.

Kusumi Koharu FC Birthday Event Announced

24 06 2011

A FC birthday event for Kusumi Koharu titled Kusumi Koharu Birthday Event ~Otanjoubi Kai~ has been announced on the M-line FC site.

Koha will turn 19 years old in less than a month so I’m really happy to see that she will be getting a few FC events for her birthday since it gives her a chance to meet her fans while they show their support for her, and while it will only be a day it’s great to see that there will be three performances that day.

I’m not sure if she will perform since the times are a bit too close with about one hour and 30 minutes in between each one of the times, but I hope she can at least sing a few songs or talk about her future plans and what she hopes to do.

Hopefully fans who are in the area can go to the events since it seems like the perfect way to wish her a happy birthday and since her birthday is a few days before the event it seems like the perfect time for her to celebrate with family and friends and then have an event a few days later.

The event will be on 7/17 at Pacific Heaven at 13:30 / 15:30 / 17:30.

Kusumi Koharu Will Appear In The Fashion Magazine CanCam

23 06 2011

Kusumi Koharu will appear in the August issue of the popular fashion magazine CanCam in a 10 page spread.

Cover of the magazine

According to her it was her dream to be a model for the magazine since she was in elementary.

Here are a few images of the magazine featuring Koha:

I don’t usually keep up with the latest fashion news so I don’t know which magazine is the most popular in Japan, but if the Wikipedia page for CanCam is right then this is a pretty big event for Koha since the magazine started quite a while ago in 1981 and it usually features 500,000 copies in circulation each month – which is a fairly good indicator that this magazine is really popular and since this is a real fashion magazine instead of the usual idol fashion magazine it’s a great indicator that Koha is becoming a serious fashion model.

I’m really happy to see that Koha has become one of the models since she is really talented and a really good model, and if she manages to regularly appear then she would have reached her goal to be a senzoku model (an exclusive CanCam model), which is even better, but for now she has only appeared once which is still pretty amazing.

Hopefully fans can buy a copy of the magazine to support Koha and to also enjoy a 10 page spread with her modeling in various outfits, and while it’s only her first appearance and we don’t know if she will appear again I really hope that she will since this is a really big step in her modeling career and a great way for her to become a popular fashion model.

The magazine is on sale from 6/23 (today).

“Morning Musume Single Clips 6 DVD” Cover Released

29 03 2011

“Morning Musume Single Clips 6 DVD” Cover has been released.

The cover looks as if they took the 45th single cover and simply added on Koharu, Linlin, Junjun and Eri at the bottom. Everyone except the 4 mentioned earlier are using the outfits from the 45th single. Eri, Junjun, Linlin and Koharu seem to be using the outfits from the last single they appeared in. (Koharu using Kimagure Princess outfit) It’s hard to tell since it is a head shot but it’d be the most logical to use since it’s the most recent picture of the member and I’m assuming since Koharu is featured on the cover Kimagure Princess is also included in the DVD.

I think it’s quite creative that they were able to incorporate the graduated members onto the DVD. They match the Maji desu ka ska theme and it looks as if they are still a part of the group.

In the bottom corner in a green cloud it features the title in pink and blue block letters. The colors are strange, they don’t really match each other and are all dominate colors but it adds to the youthful feel of the cover and it isn’t too distracting since it’s been put in the little corner.

Overall I love the cover and hopefully all fans feel the same way.

Please support Morning Musume and purchase a copy when it’s released.

The release date is set for 4/13.

Kusumi Koharu’s Fanclub Is Titled “Koharusai”

18 01 2011

The title of Koharu’s Fanclub event is called “Koharusai.”

On the information page Koharu chose out the name of the event herself and I wasn’t too surprised by that since it is her first solo event since graduating Morning Musume. Also it’s probably going to be a special one for her so being able to name her own event is going to make it more memorable.

Hopefully all fans get a chance to attend.

The event will be on 3 / 13 at Yokohama BLITZ.

Morning Musume OG Concert Tour 2011 Announced

24 12 2010

A concert tour for Morning Musume OG titled Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai ~Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~ has been announced.

Acording to the announcement Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori, Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari, Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Tsuji Nozomi, Ogawa Makoto, Fujimoto Miki, and Kusumi Koharu will be participating in the concert tour (basically everyone except Konno Asami).

I’m glad to see that they decided to do a Morning Musume OG tour since it has been a while since we last saw them perform together, and while Konno won’t be able to perform (most likely because she is busy at training for her TV Tokyo announcer job) it will most likely be a great tour for all OG fans since we will be able to see most of OG performing H!P classics.

We don’t know what the setlist may contain but it will most likely have many solo songs from each one of the solo artists (Nakazawa, Iida, Abe, Yaguchi, and Fujimoto) as well as some group performances, which should be very interesting to see since we will get a chance to hear many great songs being performed by OG members.

For now we don’t know what to expect from the tour, but hopefully OG fans buy their tickets to enjoy this unique and impressing concert tour when it starts in April.

The concert will feature the following dates:

Date Venue Concert starts
04/23 Chuukyou Daigaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall 15:00 / 18:30
05/01 Amagasaki Shi Sougou Bunka Sentaru Kaikkunoru 14:30 / 18:00
05/04 Nakano Sun Plaza 15:00 / 18:30
05/05 Nakano Sun Plaza 14:00 / 18:00
05/07 NHK Osaka Hall 15:00 / 18:30
05/15 Yokosu ka Geijutsu Gekijou 15:00 / 18:30
05/21 Hiroshima ALSOK Hall 13:30 / 17:00

Kusumi Koharu’s 1st M-Line FC Event Announced

10 12 2010

Kusumi Koharu will have her first M-line FC Event.

After the announcement of her essay book a few days ago I somewhat expected to see an event for it being announced later on, and I’m glad it did since this will be Koha’s 1st M-line FC event where she can promote her essay book to fans as well as interact with them.

The main focus for the event will most likely be her book but I would be surprised to see that she didn’t sing a few songs, although we will have to wait and see since not much info has been released yet.

Hopefully fans reserve their tickets as soon as possible for this event since it seems like a great chance for Koha fans to support her.

The event will be on 3/13 at Yokohama BLITZ.
