What happened to Berryz Kyuuden?

Well, I'm slightly dissapointed in myself, to be perfectly honest. Last month was looking to be my most active month yet with 6 entries by the 14th. Then I stopped. Even despite the ocean of great topics I could have written about. So I'd like to appologise to those who actually read this blog (that's right! All 3 of you!) for the inactivity over the last fortnight. But I'll work to update, and make this month even better than what I hoped for last month!

Anyway. Last week, I was in London at the London Games Festival, went to see Video Games Live on the 24th. Sadly it was the only event I had the chance to go to, as my train was leaving the morning after. But it was brilliant. And if there are any fans of games reading this, be sure to come next year if you weren't there this year. I may post about that when they announce the tour dates for the 2009-2010 tour.

Anyway, back to the world of Japanese Idolling. As I'm sure everyone is aware by now, all of Elder Club will be graduating from Hello!Project next year. I was incredibly annoyed when I heard the decision, but after a couple of hours, I started to see that it's a great oppertunity for Hello!Project. With all of those low-selling obaachan out of the way, it makes way for a cleaner, fresher H!P image. And with Berryz Koubou and C-ute growing ever more popular, these two groups can benifit a great deal. Without having to worry about Elder Club groups, wota will have more spare cash in their pockets to spend on the more important units. The Wonderful Hearts. During the Second World War, Stalin purged the Red Army of alot of it's commanding officers, for greater control over the Army. That seems to be similiar strategy to what UFA are using, but in a more Corporate form. Purge all the Senpai and there'll be no-one to complain about how things are better in the Golden Era right? This is the Golden Era, I wager. Bigger budgets for these groups almost always results in bigger sales. And with Berryz and C-ute already breaking into their own Golden Eras... Think how much higher all these units can climb! The sky's the limit in the world of JPop.

I have so many new releases to buy too. But I'm broke at the moment, what with the London trip, and then some other things I've bought on top of it all. I've nothing left. I get paid next week however, so I'll have to order this years Wonderful Hearts Summer concert then, as well as MADAYADE and perhaps I'll throw in C-ute's upcomming single in there too. This year has been such a big year for releases it isn't even funny. I'll get my hands on it all some way or another. Also; I'm still waiting for my Maasa shirt to be sent. But Ohta did say it could take up to 4 weeks before he even gets it. So I guess he should have it by next week. I'll be sure to share a picture or two when it arrives.

So...

I'm back!

Out of curiosity; where did you spend the night?
I didn't realise you spent the night in London ^^;

Southwark Travel Lodge, I believe it was called. It was on Union St. Just a short walk from Waterloo St too. :)

Yes, Berryz and C-ute benefit from the Elders' leaving, but it's the Eggs who are helped immensely by this; finally, room is opening up on the stage for these new talents!
