Regarding the following questions…

What do you consider the high point of this era? Why?
What do you consider the low point of this era? Why?
Is there anything about this era that you’d like to change or no? Why?
Any additional thoughts about this era?

…there was little said. Due to their late inclusion, the data is somewhat inconclusive and only received one response: from a fan who has nothing to comment on due to not being a fan at this point.

As with Iida, there was only one response to go off of. Fortunately, there was more substance to the answers: the high point was the diversity of the members, in terms of their looks and personality. This allowed for an ease in picking favorites. Yoshizawa Hitomi also gave off the impression of “strong and reliable” leadership.

However, the low point given was Miki’s dating scandal with one thing that would’ve been able to have been changed being the length of her leadership following Yossie’s graduation. (Indeed, there’s a reason she and Yaguchi are barely represented in terms of “eras.”)

Anyway, the early years of Sayu’s tenure was a quiet time, but we know that there are things to come in the times ahead. Tune in next week as we analyze the next era in Sayu’s career (which pretty much amounts to dissecting Momusu history): the Takahashi-Niigaki Years!

In the spirit of this post, let’s close things off with the single that started it all: Shabondama.

Sayonara SEE YOU AGAIN Adios BYE BYE Chaccha!
