    And so the annual leave of x-many members of HouPri begins...

    TBH, I'd rather she leave as a Candidate / Apprentice, than as a regular member. Too bad she wasn't around long enough for us to get a good idea of what she was capable of... The Idol life is not for everyone, however.

    What exactly did she say? Given her twitter has closed for good, and I can't read Japanese, I really have no clue what is being said.

    EDIT* Turns out, she broke the rules of the contract. No clue what she did, but I can only guess she either had a boyfriend, or was meeting / speaking with wota outside of business hours.

    Damn, Marina left?! I haven't kept up with the group in a few months and I prefer Amaki Jun to Marina anyway... but damn. :(
    However, she was just like Jun in that she was far more well known than the other members of her group. I'd have hoped she'd have done a Hashimoto Kanna and propelled her group a bit more, but I don't suppose that can happen with every group.

    Yeah, she just felt like she wasn't doing as good as the other members, and was panicking each time she went on stage... so she left, because it was too hard for her as she was, and because she did honestly prefer her solo activities. Thing is, she's not return to the industry as of yet - it's early days, though, we're only in January, so until she let's us know what's happening, it's a hiatus.

    I feel like Marichu was more well known as a gravure model than she was an Idol, and I think that she had separate fans for each, with most being in the gravure side of her activities. Odagiri Nana is currently the most popular HouPri member in HouPri, not out of it. Marichu was the most popular outside of the group, for sure. It would have been nice if she propelled them, but I don't think their sales did any less or any worse whilst she was a Regular Lineup member.

    "Lychee Red no Unmei" MV is out! It somewhat has a Dynasty Warriors vibe.

    I just found out about the album on my twitter feed, I'm so damn happy! I've been waiting for an album for years, now! (Not a mini-album, lol)

    Also, those dresses are BOMB! <3

    *EDIT: 12 members? There are 8 in the Regular lineup, and 3 in the Cadets... isn't that 11 members?

    It was probably recorded before Morishita Rina withdrew.

    EDIT: I misread it.

    Was it '12 songs'? XD

    tbh I'm so happy! The indies album is far too long overdue, and I see zero point in getting it (if you have their previous singles containing all these songs).

    The only song worth getting on the indies album is 'Pan ga Suki', only because it was never released physically or digitally. Otherwise, the other songs were all available / contained in their last two indies singles, Samu wa Fuyui and Manatsu no Yoru no Yume (both of which I haves, so kinda have no need for it aside from the rumoured Pan ga Suki XD)
