Momoiro Clover Z
ももいろクローバーZ
Known as: ももクロ (Momokuro), Momoclo, MCZ

Momoclo (Japanese: ももクロMomokuro) are an idol group from Stardust Promotion which was originally known as Momoiro Clover when they were first formed in 2008. In April 10 2011 they officially changed their name to Momoiro Clover Z with Hayami Akari's departure.
Before their debut, Momoclo held street performances during weekends, hence why they got their nickname as 'Weekend Heroine' (週末ヒロインShūmatsu Hiroin). They first debuted in August 5th 2009 with the single Momoiro Punch and released their first major release Ikuze Kaito Shoujo with Universal in 2010. They then moved to their current recording company King Records in August 2010 prior to their 2nd major release single Pinky Jones. In January of 2018 Momoka left the group and Momoclo's future was up in the air, but with the continued support of the fans for the group's 10th anniversary, the members decided to continue on as four. This constellation is also known as The Diamond Four, or TDF in short.

This is a pretty good introduction (turn on subtitles):

Members:
Takagi Reni
高城れに

Nickname: Reni-chan

DOB: 21 Juni 1993
Colour: Purple
The electric girl (just watch her dance during their performances). Pretty much the wackiest girl in the group.
Official blog: http://ameblo.jp/takagi-sd/
IG: https://www.instagra...ireni_official/

Momota Kanako
百田夏菜子


Nickname: Kanako↑↑
DOB: 12 July 1994
Colour: Red
The leader of the group. Known for her acrobatic skills and those deep dimples next to her lips. Quite wacky as well though not as random as Reni.
Official blog: http://ameblo.jp/momota-sd/
IG: https://www.instagra...omota_official/

Tamai Shiori
玉井詩織


Nickname: Shiorin, Tama-chan
DOB: 4 June 1995
Colour: Yellow
The 'little sister' even though she's not the youngest she's pretty much spoiled by the other members. The prankster of the group and has good acrobatic skills too.
Official blog: http://ameblo.jp/tamai-sd/
IG: https://www.instagra...tamai_official/
Sasaki Ayaka
佐々木彩夏


Nickname: A-rin, A-chan
DOB: 11 June 1996
Colour: Pink
Despite being the youngest she's in charge of being the sexy one in the group, well that awesome hair and cute face do support her of being one. Her solo songs are some of the fans favourites in concerts.

Former OPs (on OH): eyeless, exists​

Suzuki will be releasing individual member CMs over the coming days. The first one will be with Reni and can be seen at their website already.

Arin will also be on the cover for Overture magazine's June 24 issue.

Just got in on the Stardust Express! Seems like this site is still shaky, so I couldn't check the new thread until today. I already posted this in the original thread, but since this is our oasis, I'll repost it here. Momoclo were on J-Melo again. I don't know if it aired on NHK World or not, but it's up on their website until July 10th. They're the first segment and cover just about everything you'd want them to.


Here's some Ebichu news. It was Kaho's 19th Birthday the other day.



I found a video of their perf on Music Fair, but it cuts abruptly throughout the song. Maybe they were trying to avoid a copyright strike? It starts around 2:20. Ayaka wasn't there, but I think she had another obligation and not a health related issue. I also found a fantastic perf of Butterfly Effect. I don't think I've ever seen them perform it live. So much twirling and there's a quick costume change. Blink and you'll miss it. Since I think it was Kaho's first single with them, it seemed appropriate to include it. Starts at 3:00.

Was Shiori giving that woman a shoulder massage, lol?

That pic is amazing! I love seeing them experiment with this kind of look.

I haven't really been able to get into OH lately either to improve the first few posts of this thread. But I'll try to add stuff slowly but surely. I also noticed some stuff in the OH thread could be improved on a bit.


I'm happy to see the Butterfly Effect video since I love that song. But omg I had forgotten just how aiai's voice sounds ?
Since Ebichu's 10th anniversary is getting closer I was hoping to post more about them. Speaking of which, in 3 days they'll hold "MuSiC Festival" in 3 days (on the 22nd).

I created a badge voting thread for Momoclo (we need 3 more supporters and 1 keeper).
Please check the thread out and sign up if you're interested in either being a supporter or keeper. I'd also like to know if there's interest in a Stardust Planet group or badges for other sister groups.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
With that announcement done, back to normal content:

Suzuki Hustler CM ft. Momoclo and Dr Slump

Momoclo try their hands on beatboxing

Reni for Hustle Press

Kanako for Hustle Press


If I understood things correctly, Reni had events in three different parts of Japan today?


Chitose (Hokkaido)

Niigata (at Tower Records for Marugoto Reni-chan's release)

Takasaki (Gunma)

That's a lot of travelling the day before your birthday :ohmygod:

Today is Reni's 26th birthday~

Some Reni pictures for Hustle Press



Shachi are doing stage greetings for their movie, "Failure Girls".


I was considering posting photos from several greetings tomorrow but I'll probably be busy this weekend so not sure if I have enough time.
With that said there should be a lot of content to catch up on, with all that is going on during the coming days (MuSiC Fes, Ayaka Nation etc).

I tested making some badges and I'm really happy with the options this year. But part of me wants to use the Kanako photo from the shrimp festival ?
I just need to find it online somewhere...

I didn't know Momoka had a YouTube channel. I hope they'll be regular updates.

I was reading up on Ebichu's MUSiC Fest. I think it's specifically for their fanclub.

BST's second album, BGM, was released today!

Lady May performance from the Kinema Club live

Such a different performance from what we're used to seeing :ohmygod:
I wasn't expecting BST to be Girl Scouts with Guns! I'm sure they'll sell allot of cookies this way, lol.

I found a video of the Kinema Club perf. I'll look around for it and post the link later.

I'll be a Supporter for the Badges as well as a Keeper, but I don't know all the rules for this site yet. I guess we're using points, but I have no idea how many are needed to request a Badge.

I was looking through Reni's solo event yesterday on twitter. So much purple!

There's more from Momoka's channel:

I'm not 100% sure on how the badge rules work but I believe they'll be post based like on OH. The forum is also trying to get a currency system.
As for keepers and supporters I think they have to be separate, so we have 2 keepers (you and me) and 2 supporters right now. Getting 3 more supporters shouldn't be too hard.
--------------------------------------------------
Now for a mixed bag of content (mostly Shiori gifs/clips but also some other stuff):

This year's Ayaka Nation seems to have been great, based on what comments I've seen.

The attendance was 12872 people.

Backup dancers were CROWN POP, Amefurasshi and DANNYO.

As usual, Arin went to Hard Rock Café after the concert

There were apparently a total of 141 idols from 27 different groups that participated in Yokohama Arin Collection.

Finally, AYAKA NATION 2020 will be held on Kanako's birthday on the 12th of July.

I'll put more pictures and stuff from AYAKA NATION in a separate post.
