H!P Profiles: THE Possible / Ciao Bella Cinquetti

possible

L to R: Kaede Oose, Yuki Goto, Aina Hashimoto, Robin Okada Shouko, Kanami Morozuka, Yurika Akiyama

Ah, THE Possible.  I think it was great that Tsunku during 2006 was paying attention to the Eggs and putting them to use like Tomoiki Ki wo Uetai (although they didn’t exactly last long).  Anyways, 2006…Tsunku announced another group with 4 members, (Kanami, Aina, Yurika, and Kaede) initially before adding Yuki and Robin shortly after to complete the group.  They released 6 indie singles and one mini-album (calls it an album but it’s 6 tracks) before they were shockingly moved from H!P to Tsunku’s new label (at the time) TNX.  During those times they released two more indie singles before FINALLY going major for two singles before Kaede Oose graduated to focus on her acting in 2009.

L to R: Kanami Morozuka, Yurika Akiyama, Robin Okada Shouko, Yuki Goto, Aina Hashimoto

After Kaede graduated the group proceeded forward and after more singles and finally a 2nd album, they moved their releases onto Victor to which they are actually doing pretty good for themselves.  Even with the announcement recently that Robin is the leader and Aina is the sub-leader…I think they’re still a big priority with Tsunku and even sometimes see them with H!P

That is until 2015 where the group announced a decision to change the group’s name to Ciao Bella Cinquetti. Though the excitement didn’t last very long because shortly after their first single under the new name, Yurika Akiyama announced her graduation from the group leaving just the four to continue on.

L to R: Robin Okada Shouko, Aina Hashimoto, Yuki Goto, Kanami Morozuka

And this is where the current lineup stands at the moment, strange to see only the 4 of them since Akkyan left, but still looks mature!

Style of Music:

They are that kind of basic idol group, but they’ve slowly shedded that mold for something a little more loud and awesome for their voices.

Last but not least, this is Otome! Be Ambitiouswhich is the group’s most recent single.  Who knew idols would skydive xD

Top 5 Favorite Songs

  • Ijiwaru Crazy love
  • Kaze no Uwasa
  • Senkousekka Baby! (album song from “② Shiawase no Akashi”)
  • Nanja Korya?!
  • Young DAYS!!

Overall: I almost thought after ② Shiawase no Akashi, THE Possible would be done, but it seems they’ve been rejuvenated since joining Victor last year!  As the 2nd Egg group created, I actually was surprised they were put on TNX (considering how well that is doing today >.>) I think THE Possible at first felt like a mix of Berryz & C-ute but then when they became more rock-heavy, I think they found their niche.  I sometimes still do wonder what’d be like if they were still H!P but I love that they’re still active today!!

H!P Profiles: Tomoiki Ki wo Uetai

tomoikiori

L to R: Arisa Noto, Yuuka Maeda, Kaede Oose, Konatsu Furukawa, Saki Mori

In October 2005, Tsunku surprised many by announcing the FIRST H!P Egg group, Tomoiki Ki wo Uetai.  The group was originally Arisa, Yuuka, Kaede, and Konatsu and included Kanna Arihara as well, but VERY shortly after, she had graduated from the Eggs to join °C-ute.  After she left it was announced that Saki Mori would be replacing her.  The 5 above would go onto release their only single (said only 500 copies were initially released), Minna no Ki.  After the release, Kaede Oose would also graduate from the Eggs to go into THE Possible.

L to R: Arisa Noto, Konatsu Furukawa, Saki Mori, Ayumi Yutoku, Yuuka Maeda

Yeah, after Kaede left, she was replaced by Ayumi Yutoku for a shortwhile before she herself would leave the program (onto nothing in particular…she’s one of the more quiet ex-Eggs).

tomoiki

L to R: Saki Mori, Akari Saho, Arisa Noto, Yuuka Maeda, and Konatsu Furukawa

The last itearation of the group (to me) was when Akari came in to replace Ayumi and oddly enough at this point, the group was less into music and more for environmental awareness.  In a way, I was hoping more music was going to come from them with this solid group, but once Arisa had graduated and Yuuka joined S/mileage (and therefore graduated) the group went into inactivity.

Team Ohana-Batakettai!! (Top Pic) L to R: Minami Sengoku, Rina Katsuta, Konatsu Furukawa, Rie Kaneko
Team Midories L to R: Manami Arai, Akari Saho, Ayano Sato, Yuu Kikkawa
Team Catch the Nature L to R: Asuna Okai, Sayaka Kithara, Mia Sainen, Kaori Sano
Team Genki Mori Ranger L to R: Mizuki Fukumura, Saki Mori, Irori Maeda

After Yuuka and Arisa had left, I guess Tsunku wanted to bring them back and to further promote environmental awareness so he basically shoved in MANY of the Eggs in with the 3 remaining members and an extra member, Kaori Sano was was a UFP-Egg (totally different from the H!P Eggs).  With that happening, they were also split into 4 sub-groups…all of them supporting the same nature-friendly atmosphere.  Slowly through the years they were ultimately forgotten and all but one member has moved on from the Eggs (and that one member is Rie Kaneko).

Style of Music: The only things musically that’s resounding with Tomoiki’s music was their only single which was essentially a pro-environmental song that’s kind of cute but also in the feels of SATOYAMA and SATOUMI but it’s a nice pop track while the B-side, Shiritai Koto Ippai was a ballad.

SINGLES

  • Minna no Ki

This is the only “PV” the group ever got with Minna no Ki and it’s really more of a dance shot/live performance more than anything really).

Overall: You know when I got into H!P, I’ve never really heard about the group.  Even then when I did start getting into H!P and even recently, I never knew the group was still active when I was listening to S/mileage when they debuted.  Tomoiki Ki wo Uetai is like Ecomoni in where this is before SATOYAMA and SATOUMI really begun to flourish.  I actually would love to see this group return as a SATOUMI thing (plus technically the group never REALLY shut down since Kaneko is still around).  But dang I was shocked that initially it wasn’t just the 8 original members…but there was actually 20 members involved…DAMN!

1. Suki Sugite Baka Mitai

Not surprised that the album would begin with the powerhouse group’s debut.  Listening to the song and enjoying the equal line distribution, Suki Sugite Baka Mitai sounds like it’s a nostalgic trip to the early days of H!P using some old sounding (early 90’s sounding) synths.  I know it’s a favorite to many people, but I don’t find it very intriguing for me.  I think it could’ve had a faster speed and maybe a little more bass, but the song is great for showing off the four ladies.  It’s not a bad song and it deserves the praise it gets, but it’s just not my favorite H!P song lol.

2. Iroppoi Jirettai

Wow for the first time in the Petit Bests, Morning Musume’s song isn’t messed with (you know given a damn remix).  Known as the single that Koharu first appeared in, Iroppoi Jirettai actually opened up with a whispered section with Koharu and Eri.  From the first listen, you can tell Momusu was going into a new direction because the song has a fiery latin sound about it and it immediately caught my attention.  It was quite unique at the time and still holds its ground today!  Though the only pet peeve I have with the song is Mikitty in the ending of the second chorus with the ~dokomademo dakishimete~ definitely rough sounding for sure.  Still…this is a hot song to listen to and I was pleased it made the cut.

3. Koi no Hana

Moving to the DEF.DIVA soloists, Nacchi comes in with her 5th single Koi no Hana and it feels like she kind of got the Gocchin touch with the slight R&B vibes going on.  I do love listening to the strings within the song matching up with the slight sparklyness of it all.  I am a bit bothered by her high register she uses during the choruses but the verses sound pleasant.  I don’t know why but these two factors don’t seem to mesh well for me.  Not really all that great of a song IMO.

4. Suppin to Namida.

Moving onto Gocchin’s 13th single, Suppin to Namida., Maki presented the listeners with a ballad!  Though it’s strange because this song never made it on any studio album of hers (not counting Bests).  For Maki, this was a bit strange to have included as the PB song but this song has a certain calmness that’s very welcome on the album.  Though it is kind of a run-of-the-mill ballad and Maki’s voice does sound almost weaker than it normally is which is a shock.  It’s not bad and is quite loved amongst the wota, but to me, it’s a bit plain.

5. Ki ga Tsukeba Anata

Then we head to Ayaya’s 17th single, Ki ga Tsukeba Anata and she finally gets out of the ballad territory by releasing this track which is a mid-tempo pop/rock track.  I mean it still isn’t where she used to be with all that energy but this song has movement which is nice.  I think of the 3 soloists so far on the album, this had to be the best because Ayaya sounds great and while the song isn’t nothing too special, it’s different for her and she pulled it off quite nicely.

6. Miss Love Tantei

Moving into the groups, we move into what would become W’s final single.  I mean this song is quite good and was showing what direction the duo wanted to really get into (if the last single didn’t help out either).  Aibon does most of the singing and she sounds rather nice but the main star was clearly Tsuji because she sung way better and she handled the rapping section like a BOSS!  It is a rather short song at a little under 3 and half minutes, but this song was good…just tragic what happened after the single was released.

7. Ajisai Ai Ai Monogatari

v-u-den comes next with their 3rd single and unsurprisingly it was also a slower number on the album.  Actually it’s not really all that slow but compared to their previous two singles, it is a lighter affair.  I’m loving the amount of Erika I hear in the song because she is the group’s best singer.  Though Rika and Yui weren’t forgotten either.  For H!P standards, the song isn’t too unique, but they sounded great and the PV was nice to watch as it shows the girls basically hanging out.  Not a bad choice to have included (though the single’s B-side, “Aimai Me MIND” was so much better XD).

8. Special Genera~tion

I always found it weird that all 8 Berryz were involved in the song yet Maiha is missing on the cover (guessing she had already left before the PB was announced).  6 singles in and Berryz got a huge break with this track that propelled them up in H!P.  Of course as this is their breakout hit, Special Genera~tion is just a fast-paced knocker that really excites the hell out of ya.  The lines were mostly to the main 4 (Risako, Miyabi, Yurina, and Momoko) but the remaining 4 got lines…strangely Maiha got some noticeable ones.  It’s one of my favorite Berryz songs still and smart idea to bring it on the album.

9. Nikutai wa Shoujiki na EROS

Two singles after their last PB addition (“Namida no Taiyou”) they bring in this extremely surprising track in Nikutai wa Shoujiki na EROS.  It was one thing with “Iroppoi Jirettai” being more of a mature song, but DAYUMMM, Nikutai blew that out of the water completely.  I was blown away with how smooth and glorious all 4 ladies of Melons were sounding.  I mean most of the song was Ayumi, Masae, and Hitomi but damn this song was just too sexy (makes you wonder how Tsunku thought of this one XD).  It’s definitely one of my all time favorite H!P songs and it’s just a perfect song to really show off Melon Kinenbi and their progress…DAMN YOU TSUNKU!

10. Sakura no Hana ga Saku Koro

Getting back to them *other* soloists, Kaori’s song was initially one that I didn’t know whether it was an original track for the best or not, but it turns out it was actually a song from her 4th (and last) album, “Plein d’Amour ~Ai ga Ippai~”.  After “Aegekai ni Dakarete”, I was kind of expecting another one of those and Kaorin might have lessened the idea of Mediterranean for this track, but in a sense it kind of feels like she wanted to have a mixture of her style and H!P which can be heard in certain chords of the song.  It’s nice and different, but doesn’t beat the aforementioned song.

11. Nishi Shinjuku de Atta Hito

Only one single over since the last PB and Yuki throws us Nishi Shinjuku de Atta Hito.  Now, I feel like this is what Enka is all about (which is something that was missing in “Sarasara no Kawa”) you have the traditional sounds of the song and it was just filled with such classic sounds.  Luckily we hear her voice REALLY stand out in this song and she has such a lovely voice for such a genre.  Definitely an impressive song and is probably my favorite Yuki song she’s done.

12. Onna, Kanashii, Otona

I’m surprised they moved the shuffle units to the back of the album (especially since these are the last shuffles we will see in a long time).  The first of them were Sexy Otonajan which featured Miki Fujimoto, Megumi Murakami, and Miyabi Natsuyaki.  Like I said in my profile for them, it was strange seeing two YOUNG members taking on a song like this because of its more mature theme, but honestly the only awkward moment was anything with Miyabi.  Her voice didn’t work well when compared to queen Miki and Megumi (which shocked me!).  The song itself was so smooth and jazzy together…if it wasn’t for Melon’s earlier sexy bomb, this would’ve been great but damn Tsunku definitely gave his all to MK’s track tbh.

13. Inshouha Renoir no You ni

The next group consisting of Reina Tanaka, Ai Takahashi, Ayumi Shibata, and Mai Satoda happened and lord was this a song that won me over quickly!  Inshouha Renoir no You ni is quite amazing with its dance beats, line distribution, and overall dramatic way going through the song.  All the ladies sound great and put a lot of emphasis on their words.  Plus the whole ~dakishimete dakishimete~ caught me immediately.  Yeah another amazing song from H!P huh xD

14. Hitoshirezu Mune wo Kanaderu Yoru no Aki

The last one was made of the older members, Atsuko Inaba, Kaori Iida, Kei Yasuda, and Yuko Nakazawa for their ballad with the long name LOL.  Unlike the other two groupings, this song is entirely sung in unison with not a whole lot of dependence on the music lol.  I felt that it was nice for being a song made for closeness, but I think I would’ve enjoyed the song more if the four members had solo lines and not have been entirely unison >.<.  It’s not terrible, but it is my least favorite of the shuffle songs.

15. Chokkan ~Toki to Shite Ai wa~ (LIVE Ver.)

It’s a bit strange that Morning Musume got another song on this album, though it’s a live version of an album song (though later “Chokkan 2” happened).  About that, I was never really a fan of the original Chokkan, but C2 is different, so hearing a LIVE version might have slightly put it back on the radar.  Now I know you’re saying that how you not like Chokkan but like Chokkan 2….and honestly the original sounds weak and unfinished unlike the second one lol.  Anyways, the LIVE take is actually a 3 minute track, but the energy is great though I don’t really hear the crowd getting into it >.>  Not bad, but the song isn’t all that great.

16. HELP!! ~Ecomoni no Acchi Chikyuu wo Samasunda. 2005~

Oh god, the album ends with this song again!?!  This time it’s updated to include Morning Musume (which is now them + Rika Ishikawa basically).  Being a minute longer than the original, I was already tuning the song because of my bitching of the last time I heard this XD.  I mean Rika and Sayu still have the spoken parts but now Morning Musume are being more in front too.  Still doesn’t change my feeling on the song, it sucks. xD

Tracks Recommended

  • Nikutai wa Shoujiki na EROS
  • Inshouha Renoir no You ni
  • Special Genera~tion
  • Nishi Shinjuku de Atta Hito
  • Iroppoi Jirettai

After my slight disappointment with the last Petit Best, I felt like PB6 was a better collection of songs that went on throughout the year.  I felt like the series was going to a better place getting rid of those ridiculous remixes of Morning Musume’s songs.  Plus there was a lot of BIG songs for me on this collection so I felt a little biased with this one.  Really the only faults was amongst the soloists really (and the last stretch of songs).  Otherwise the group songs really were great together! 8/10

H!P Profiles: DEF.DIVA

DEFDIVA+offimg_2006rakuteneagles06

L to R: Rika Ishikawa, Maki Goto, Aya Matsuura, Natsumi Abe

Seeming to kind of celebrate H!P, forming after the shortlived units the came previous: Nochiura Natsumi and Gomattou, Tsunku I guess wanted to strike once more with DEF.DIVA which consisted of most of the members from those two groups with the addition of unit hungry Rika Ishikawa.  Unlike those two, DEF.DIVA lasted for 2 singles and performed another song before going into obscurity.

Style of Music: Ehhh, H!P pop is really all I can come up with although their 2nd single is a cheer song so who knows where they were headed LOL

Discography

SINGLES

  • Suki Sugite Baka Mitai
  • LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles! (indies)

This is their main PV, because LET’S GO was kind of a mix of the baseball team and some close ups…but Suki Sugite Baka Mitai is the one they’re most known for!

Overall: I really never got what Tsunku’s deal with having Gocchin, Ayaya, and Nacchi together so much…I mean Maki and Natsumi didn’t exactly get along too well and then you have Aya who was just changing her sound and busy-bee Rika thrown in because of her popularity.  I mean Suki Sugite Baka Mitai isn’t a bad song (one of the more memorable ones) but I really think that’s the ONLY thing that’s remotely memorable.  I mean I was kind of wanting a solid group where it wasn’t a one-single (or in this case two) group.  Though this is a pretty strong line-up though.

H!P Profiles: °C-ute

C-ute%20-19 Back Row L to R: Erika Umeda, Mai Hagiwara, Chisato Okai, Saki Nakajima
Front Row L to R: Maimi Yajima, Megumi Murakami, Airi Suzuki, Kanna Arihara

Back in 2004 more than half of the H!P Kids had become Berryz Koubou and left the other 7 to continue a bit more training until in 2005 when they were finally announced to be finally an official group together.  They started performing a bit here and there until the beginning of 2006 where they gained the final piece of the group, Kanna Arihara who was brought in as a Hello! Pro Egg when she joined Hello! Project.  They started out as an indies group and then their debut album hit before Megumi Murakami just left Hello! Project stating she wanted to have education and a private life.

C-uteForeverLovePromo

L to R: Kanna Arihara, Chisato Okai, Maimi Yajima, Airi Suzuki, Saki Nakajima, Mai Hagiwara, Erika Umeda

Time would continue on as a 7-nin group for quite a while before things started to get shaky.  Right around the release of “Bye Bye Bye!” it was announced that Kanna Arihara was not going to be involved with the PV simply because she had bunions, acceptable reason I’d say, but shortly after was announced that she left H!P which meant the previous single, “FOREVER LOVE” would be the last she would be involved with.

C-uteByePromo

L to R: Chisato Okai, Mai Hagiwara, Airi Suzuki, Maimi Yajima, Saki Nakajima, Erika Umeda

Though it wouldn’t stop because only three singles later, Erika Umeda would announce her graduation to focus on a modeling career and left on “EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!!”…a lot of fans were wondering how the group would continue on after losing two of its member a year apart.

C-ute-9282

L to R: Maimi Yajima, Airi Suzuki, Mai Hagiwara, Chisato Okai, Saki Nakajima

After the 3 members departures, the group had to really find themselves after some rather ungrateful albums, but ever since the 5 have charged on and suddenly in recent times have become popular (even moreso than any other H!P group, cept Momusu).  Though as big as they had become for H!P, in 2016, it was announced that this would be the final line-up as they announced their disbandment in the following year…

Style of Music: Even though the name of the group is °C-ute, they don’t just do cutesy music…actually they’ve been doing more danceable music with electro being tossed in recently.  Though they are renowned as the dancers of H!P (though Momusu is quickly coming forward).

Ahhh, FOREVER LOVE, this is where °C-ute was starting to slightly lose their footing, as this was Kanna’s final appearance in PVs

And finally, this is Adam to Eve no Dilemma, one of their more recent PVs (I can’t say most because “Bagel ni Ham & Cheese” exists)

Top 10 Favorite Songs

  • Kiss me Aishiteru
  • Massara Blue Jeans
  • Adam to Eve no Dilemma
  • Midnight Temptation (album song from “Chou! WONDERFUL⑥”)
  • Crazy Kanzen na Otona
  • Seishun Song (2012 Shin Seinaru Ver)
  • Tachiagare Otome-tachi (B-side from Campus Life ~Umarete Kite Yokatta~)
  • Bye Bye Bye!
  • FOREVER LOVE
  • SHINES (album song from ④ Akogare My STAR)

Overall: It’s definitely been a hard road for °C-ute since their debut going from not-so-good sales to losing 3 members but from the last couple of years…the group has been climbing ever so steadily and each single keeps becoming their best selling which is so amazing to see!  I love that they are known as the powerhouse dancers and the can show it off so much.  With them disbanding, like Berryz had left quite a legacy behind and they’ll be quite missed (especially Airi x.x)
