Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

Today is a special post (at this rate, every post will be special) as this review is the result of the first Anniversary Review Vote. As noted last week, Buono’s sophomore single Ren’ai♥Rider won by a landslide 5 votes.

So without further ado, let’s dig into Buono! #2 and ride off into the sunset!

C-ute Memorial Survey: The Results Show

February 20, 2018

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

There always seem to be a big project that takes up a portion of the year. In 2014-2015, it was the Michishige Sayumemorial Survey (in addition to the P3 Precision Past PerspectiveSummer Refreshment, and Jingle Bell Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree series). In 2015, it was the Berryz Memorial Survey. In 2016, it was the Powerpuff Musume ’16 series. In 2017, it was the C-ute Memorial Survey.

The original plan was to present the results as described below:

Similarly to the Memorial Surveys held for Michishige Sayumi and Berryz Koubou, C-ute’s history and legacy is immortalized in multi-post form.

However… changes related to Google Forms made the process both easier and harder. Instead… the results will be displayed as a document! (I added a Table of Contents for ease of use.)

You can view the results show and the fun there was to be had here.

I said it once and I’ll say it again…

M3 Project Announcement: 20 Years of Fun

January 9, 2018

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

As I was planning for 2018, it occurred that despite H!P hitting a landmark year, not much is done. Plus, a couple of tournaments I had intended to start in 2017 (during Momusu’s 20th anniversary year) were left on the backburner.

This’ll be handled here and now.

Final Quarter of 2017 ☾

December 30, 2017

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

It’s that time of year again, when we get reflective of the past 300+ days. A lot has happened this year, which entailed numerous ups and downs. I got a bit into it during the Charisma, Kirei review, but this year was both exciting and draining.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Final Quarter of 2017 (and a look at 2018)!

In Memory of C-ute: The Memorial Survey Opens

June 9, 2017

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

Idols have come and gone. When Michishige Sayumi’s graduation was on the horizons, fans illustrated the impact of her tenure as a Musume and it was immortalized as the “results show” of Michishige Sayumemorial Survey. When Berryz Koubou announced their “indefinite hiatus,” their legacy was immortalized in the “results show” of the Berryz Memorial Survey.

Now, after months of consideration and planning, months of construction, and at least a month in “preview mode,” it is now time to unveil the latest Memorial Survey to immortalize an H!P legend.

As promised, here’s the C-ute Memorial Survey!

The Curtain-Rising Final Squall To Tomorrow

June 8, 2017

Since C-ute’s disbandment is near, you’re welcome to get a headstart on the Memorial Survey right here.

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

ToTomorrow-rb

It’s been a long, long road, but we’re finally (!) here. It feels like almost a year, right? C-ute announced their disbandment, a desire to pursue other dreams, in August 2016. The send-offs began with a penultimate single, a complete box set, and numerous fan tributes. Buono! very recently closed its book, to the sadness and bittersweet happiness of fans. (Happy because the members get to explore and we’re no longer tortured with hiatuses, sad for the fact it’s officially over.)

C-ute’s members announced their post-grad plans just days before this post went up. (In fact, I was in the process of making it.)

Since C-ute’s disbandment is near, you’re welcome to get a headstart on the Memorial Survey by clicking this link.

So without further ado, let’s dig into C-ute #31!

Climatic Singing Like Back Then is an Electrostatic Dream

Preface: There’s going to be a lot of embedded content in this post.

It’s hard to believe we’ve reached this point. Between the backlog of posts involving their juniors (namely Country Girls, ANGERME, and Juice=Juice) and their imminent demise, it’s hard to believe we’ve come to this point in time.

So with the true final single on the way, let’s close off February by digging into C-ute #30!

WAFNA~! C-ute’s Disbanding. O Fortuna…

September 1, 2016

I bemoan the wounds of Fortune
with weeping eyes,
for the gifts she made me
she perversely takes away

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

Well, as promised from last week’s post, here is the proper take on C-ute’s announcement.
