Things like these make me want to join Angel Eyes. I debated about joining when it was opened up to I-fans, but I never looked into how much a membership costs. It's frustrating not being able to buy something as simple as a t-shirt. With a few exceptions, most items on Amazon.jp don't offer international shipping. I've a found some t-shirts that will ship outside Japan, but none of them interested me.

It wasn't until they released that pic of Kunoichi Momoclo that it made sense why they released the Ninja Stars. Ugh, I wish they were available outside of the theater (>.<) Here's some fan pics. Looks like the Wrestler they're friends with is featured in the play.

Glad you enjoyed the translation! Yeah, this part of the interview was more interesting than the first. Reni was cracking me up, lol. Even though I agree that things don't change that much in your 20's, I think Momoclo are a special case since they've been doing the same job for 10 yrs. Being Idols, they're expected to maintain a youthful image. They live in those personas almost every day, so it's bound to have an effect on the way they've grown up.

I had a feeling that's where Arin was going with her comment. It's like she was saying "Life begins at forty".

You can definitely link my blog in the OP (y)
They usually sell the remaining stock from events online or by postorder some time after the event. But they might not ship it outside of Japan.

Adding it~

Somehow, I never noticed just how freaking short Nao is until I saw this pick with Yuzuki on the far right.


Is she standing on a box here?


*Bonus! When you can use your ears as a storage device. Honoka always has a place to hang her umbrella :LOL:

This was kind of cute.


Fans were talking about this because of how Kanami answered one of the questions. I think they thought it was funny just because she answered in Japanese instead of English. There were comments like "her English sounds weird". She say's "Oyogi ni (オヨギニ)" which means "go swimming".


Natalie posted allot of great pics from Ebichu's annual Summer Concert for Family's "FamiEn" (Full name "Ebichu's Summer Family Picnic, abbreviated as FamiEn, for the first time at Lake Yamanaka"). Over 7,000 Family's attended this year's concert.


Takoyaki's special where they go visit those Burial Mounds airs August 25th on TV Osaka.


Takoyaki were also on a Variety Show "Gatten!". You can watch the Ep here on bilibili. Takoyaki show up around 12:00.


They must have an ongoing segment because they're also in the Ep that airs on the 28th.

Some quick clarifications after watching Takoyaki's TV appearance:

- It's a cooking show, not a variety show.
- Both their segments were in the same episode, so it pretty much wraps up their appearance.
- It's being re-broadcasted on the 28th, so that confirms it was a one time appearance. I never bothered to translate their second tweet, so I just assumed it was ongoing.
:bakacat:
- In the episode they keep calling the dough "Guruten" which just mean Gluten. It must have been to differentiate it from the red bean paste variety of bread. It's kind of funny how they kept looking at it like it was something from an alien planet and shouting "GURUTEN?!" 😂 Then again, people are typically encouraged to overact on these shows.

A bit of a Teaser for that movie Momoclo have a cameo in. I guess the two women are the ones who are brought together by their love of the group. I can't remember if it's a Mother/Daughter story.

The debut of Shachizaka100 is close at hand. Here's some behind the scenes from the MV shoot for "Rocket Queen", also the song tie-in with the Mega Man project.


Mega Shachi.

The 100th episode of Momorio Folk Village will air on Sept. 12th! It's also the 5th Anniversary. I only found this out because Team Shachi retweeted this.


I think there's also going to be a Documentary about it. Members from some other Stardust groups like Shachi, Amefurasshi, and Hachimitsu Rockets will be featured during the Koala Mode section.

I really need to find time to be more active here, thanks for keeping the thread updated!
You're welcome! life happens. I can't be as active on the site as I'd like to be either. I just check in when I can (It doesn't help that some groups I followed on the old site have zero representation on this one). The site will be here when you're ready :)

Ebichu's Kashiwagi Hinata joined the short hair club. I think she's had long hair for the entirety of her time in the group. In her bog post, Hinata said she made a hair donation. She doesn't specify if this was the reason she cut her hair or if she'd been thinking about cutting it and the donation helped her make the decision. Hinata also encouraged people to start cutting their hair. Was there a donation drive going on in Japan last month?



With the new do.


I saw pics of the members in new costumes, but it took a while to find a group photo. I'm not 100% sure if they're brand new or something they've been wearing over the summer. At the latest, they probably debuted them at the Family Live concert. They're new to me anyway, lol.



Hinata's reaction is pretty cute in this deep cut.

Just something random I found. For some reason, Hachimitsu Rockets member Harima Reina ate a Hot Dog covered with Death Sauce. What's Death Sauce you may ask? It's a range of hot sauces made by Blair that's know for their insane amount of heat. They've been popularly used during WACK's one week Training Camp for girls audition to join the company (WACK produces BiSH, BiS, GANG PARADE, etc.). I don't really know why Reina subjected herself to this. None of the other members seemed to try it, so out of sheer laziness, I'm going to say she did it simply for the sake of trying it. Here's her reaction.


What makes it even better is that a second camera captured Hanayama Shiho also eating a hot dog and completely ignoring Reina's suffering happening right behind her.

They officially uploaded the full Koala Mode segment with the Stardust Planet members. If you don't have much time, I recommend at least watching the very first perf. Amefurasshi's Moeka has a beautiful voice.

Ebichu will be releasing another full album in december!

Also from Kishidan Banpaku


This is a bit off-topic but apparently three members of SMAP also performed at the expo. Apparently they go by Atarashii Chizu (新しい地図) or "New Map".

Missed this one. TokiSen posted a pic with new costumes at the beginning of the month, so I had a feeling something was coming. MV for their upcoming 2nd major single!

They also posted a dance practice.

Tokyo Girls Style did a short dance cover of the main choreo in the chorus.


New group photo.
