Happy Birthday, Marippe!

January 20, 2010

My computer is still broken, but I couldn’t not say ~Happy Birthday~ to my favorite member of Hello! Project ever.

When I first started listening to Morning Musume music and watching PVs and other clips, there was one member who always caught my attention, and it was tiny, blonde, outspoken Mari. Ayaka’s English Lessons were some of the clips I watched to try to know the individual members, and Mari’s were always my favorites. From there, it was the clips of the “school trip,” the Idiot Girl test, and the Sports Festival, along with random Utaban clips (including the infamous “Vietnam Yaguchi”) that really made her my favorite. I was disappointed, to say the least, when I realized that she was no longer in Morning Musume, that she didn’t get a graduation, and that she hadn’t gotten any solo songs. However, now that she’s working seemingly nonstop, I kind of wish she had a break. 😄 I think Hello! Project needs more members like Mari with really unique personalities.

Happy Birthday, Captain!

Happy birthday to my favorite member of Berryz Koubou~!

To tell the truth, I don’t know a whole lot about Saki-chan, or even Berryz Koubou in general. I haven’t watched very many clips with them, and I’ve never watched one of their concerts. However, a few days ago, I randomly decided to watch Berryz Koubou’s Alo-Hello! DVD. I have to say, that’s the most fun I’ve had watching a Hello! Project clip since some of the old-school Morning Musume appearances (Utaban, Hey!x3, etc.). But, I digress. For some reason or another, I just liked Captain when I got into Berryz. Maybe because she’s such a great dancer, or perhaps because her nickname is “Captain” instead of “Leader” (because “Captain” is a hundred times better), or maybe even because, even though she doesn’t get a lot of lines, she has a very distinct voice. Or (and this is entirely believable on my part) maybe even because she’s one of the “other” members i.e. not Risako, Miyabi, or Momoko; I almost always like one of the “background” members best.

Happy birthday, Captain~! Time to listen to Sprinter!

Happy birthday to one of the first Morning Musume members I could recognize~!

When I first found Morning Musume, Reina was one of the most recognizable members to me; her hairstyle always gave her away, because I liked it and wanted to try it for myself, but it just never looked right on me. 😄 I also noticed that she seemed to get quite a few lines. At first, I liked her because I could recognize her, then I was a little irritated with her because she seemed to get so much more time in the spotlight than other members, then I was kind of indifferent about her. Now, she’d probably be in the upper middle for my Morning Musume ranking, because I watched the making for Kimagure Princess the other day, and I had to laugh at some of the things she did. Reina seems very fun~. ^__^ Not to mention she’s a great singer; I can see why she gets so many lines. Also, yay for Reina’s recent projects (Yonayona Penguin and Kaito Reinya)!

Happy birthday, Reina~! I’m off to listen to Heya to Y shirts to Watashi! *puts on birthday hat*

Happy Birthday, Gaki-san!

Happy birthday to my favorite member of the current Morning Musume lineup~!

Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari was the first Morning Musume PV I watched (though it was quite a while after it came out), so that’s how I learned most of the members names. But, for some reason, I could never remember Risa. Maybe it was because her verse didn’t interest me (although, watching it now, I find it hilarious), or maybe she just wasn’t as memorable for me as Mari or Yossie. But, after watching various clips (like the Idiot Girl test and the awesome MouTube videos), I grew to like her more.  Not to mention she has an amazing voice and a smile to match. ^__^ Also, her color is green! This doesn’t have much to do with anything, but green’s my favorite color, so that get’s her another plus. 😄

Happy birthday, Gaki-san~! *throws confetti*
