Mass Graduation for H!P

This could the the year that everyone remembered as Mass Graduation.
Since the news have spread that all members in Elder Club in H!P will graduate from Hello! Project completely.

And I’m talking about every single one of them.
Members includes

Morning Musume OG:
Nakazawa Yuuko
Iida Kaori
Abe Natsumi
Yasuda Kei
Yaguchi Mari
Ishikawa Rika
Yoshizawa Hitomi
Tsuji Nozomi
Konno Asami
Ogawa Makoto
Fujimoto Miki

Inaba Atsuko
Satoda Mai (Country Musume)
Saito Hitomi (Melon Kinenbi)
Murata Megumi (Melon Kinenbi)
Ohtani Masae (Melon Kinenbi)
Shibata Ayumi (Melon Kinenbi)
Maeda Yuki
Matsuura Aya
Miyoshi Erika
Okada Yui
Ongaku Gatas (presumably, Korenaga Miki, Noto Arisa, Sengoku Minami, Sawada Yuri)

Weird thing is the popular ones [Abe, Aya, Yossie and Rika] are graduating, they are the one that are particularly making the money for H!P, specially Rika, she’s the money maker in Elder
Konkon, Makoto, Miki have Satoda mai have just return with some sort of activity.
Nozomi and Iida have barely done anything this year
The weirdest thing would be the Gatas [ex H!P Eggs]
Mano Erina is not part of the graduation however she is a soloist and she was part of the Elder Club 2008 She did get a whole lot exposure since she regularly appear on Momusu TV show, Berryz/C-ute Concerts
The rest of the Eggs are doing fine.

This is perhaps the biggest bombshell H!P have dropped since…….forever
Their future is unknown, the purpose of this graduation is unknown as well.
Basically, the future of H!P is unknown.
So now, do we get a new audition for H!P?



  1. Hmm. Can the remaining groups carry the entire company? How many fans will be lost? Hopefully, there’s a plan here. I just hope Tsunku has done is homework and that this transition won’t wreck the whole party.

  2. Rad, unfortunately, this is the decision of UFA not Tsuku.
    He only writes music, he does not have a say over firing or who member should be getting PB and so on.
    Till now, the future is rather looking chaotic.
    Because the economic crisist, Elders will have to be the ones that get cut because comparing to Momusu/Berryz they’re making a lot less money.

    But I don’t know.
    If there’s any news on it.
    I will blog it as soon as I can

  3. Hello Project is dying!
