Which Group Do We Most Want Danbara Ruru to Join?

May 30, 2017


Ahh, nothing like a nice tall glass of speculation in the morning. Personally, I think mystery is one of the most fun parts of H!P.


My thoughts on Ruru: She'll do well anywhere! Put her where she's needed.




1: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Let's seriously think about it.


2: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/



4: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Angerme, whose first and second best singers have graduated.


6: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

If she joined Country Girls, the group's concept would be destroyed, but if it were Angerme, I could accept it.


7: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

She should join Momusu.

Hasn't she won Best Performer twice now?

In fact, if she didn't join Momusu, the meaning of "Best Performer" would be defeated.


       81: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Dance: Ishidanbara.

       Singing: Odanbara.


       241: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Does the Best Performer voting really take on that meaning?

       Did the kenshuusei wota who went to the concert really vote for who they wanted to join                    Momusu?


9: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/



11: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I like her, so I want her to join Musume, but it would hurt my heart if she were flamed for it.


12: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

She'd be fine singing Angerme songs, but what'll she do with S/mileage songs?


14: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Since Fujii's graduating, Kobushi has entered the roulette.

Although the chances of her joining them are lower than Musume, Angerme, and Country Girls.


15: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Since she's the big shot who's won the Kenshuusei Shindan Test twice now, what if they just let her pick which group she wants to join? Although I don't know her preference.


17: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I think the most likely choice is Country Girls, where she has members from her same kenshuusei generation.

They added Kaga to Musume, and Onoda to Tsubaki.

See? Nowadays, even the office is taking that into account.


18: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Does she have generation-mates in Country Girls? We are losing Momochi, so it seems she could replenish their singing power well.


       30: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Haga in Momusu.

       Niinuma in Tsubaki.

       Yamaki and Funaki in Country Girls.


19: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Musume is the only option.

I'd feel bad for her if she were a one-person generation, so she should join with Kawamura.


20: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Momusu's Budokan starts at 6:00 pm.

I feel like the possibilities are high.


21: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

What if they added all three of them to Musume?


22: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

In terms of singing abilities, I have worries for all the groups.


23: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It's almost certain that they'll add someone to Kobushi.

They've come this far using 8-person formations.

They can't suddenly learn 7-person formations this late in the game.

So they'll supply another person and keep it at 8 members.


25: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Musume: X

Until now, you've had to pass an audition as a condition to join Morning Musume.

I have a hard time imagining them dangling these three in front of us until it's announced that they passed a 14th gen audition.


Angerme: Ichioka.

The Aikawa problem could be reconciled by adding Ichioka, who's close with 3rd gen members Murota and Sasaki.

Although you could take the angle that Kaga joined Musume, and Ichioka is her generation-mate.


Juice=Juice: X

The members themselves don't want any additions, so it's best not to bother them.


Country Girls: Danbara.

It would restart Yamaki-Funaki's striving toward a legendary 20-generation group.

The ace, Morito, has acknowledged her talent as well.

And she'd easily fix the problematic loss of singing power after Tsugunaga's graduation.


Kobushi: Kawamura.

Even besides Fujii's graduation, I'm worried about Kobushi's waning spirit in their third year of activities.

Kawamura would revitalize them with her impressive skill, heart, and idol aura.


Tsubaki: X

Obviously, this isn't the time for them to add any more members.


       32: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Isn't the Jitsuryoku Shindan Test sort of like an audition?


              35: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/



              We've already witnessed their abilities for a much longer time than an audition process.


       119: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Did Haga and Yokoyama pass an audition?


              127: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


              The kenshuusei have separate auditions.


26: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Buono! with the three of them.


27: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

There are a lot of members in Angerme who can sing, so I think she'll go elsewhere.


29: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Well, I kind of want a girl added to Kobushi who'll boost the visuals of the group.


31: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Which members are close to Danbara-chan?

I haven't really seen anyone blog intimately about her other than saying, "She's a good singer."


33: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

She's come this far and tried so hard because she looks up to Sayashi, so they should really reward her and add her to Musume.


37: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Put her in Musume.


38: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I think they should add all three to Musume.


42: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

The best-case scenario would be adding all three to Musume together.

It would really change the group.


45: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

There's no way for me to be happy with this unless they form a new unit.


46: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Until we stop regarding Musume as the superior group, nothing will change.


47: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

There's no way they can make a new unit out of these three.


53: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

If a girl is 1/10 of a group, it's a good added spice.

But if she's 1/6, the taste becomes too strong.


It's like that.


57: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Katsuta's in Angerme.


61: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It would be okay if she were added to Country Girls or something.


75: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


77: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Even if she joins Musume, the lines are distributed so thinly that she couldn't really show off her singing power.

She would mess up Angerme's physical image.

She doesn't really fit the vibe of Country Girls or Tsubaki.

So that leaves the groups that take pride in their vocals: Juice=Juice or Kobushi.


80: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Oda-chan was cute already.

It's possible that, like Kaga, Danbara-chan's looks will suddenly change once she debuts.


91: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

If she were put in Musume, we'd get to look forward to periodic solo events, like Odasaku's.

I don't think we really have to worry about line distribution, if it's Momusu.


92: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Rent her out to all the groups.


93: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

They didn't even add a vocal member to the much-needed 13th gen, so I doubt they'd suddenly make Danbara the 14th gen.


102: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

She's the Kobushi 2nd gen.


104: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


108: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It's gotta be Angerme.


110: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       117: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       What a good group of four.


112: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It could be Musume, Angerme, Country Girls, or Kobushi.

Juice=Juice and Tsubaki seem unlikely.

It seems like she'll fill a vacancy of someone who quits from here on out.


114: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

The members of Country Girls do tend to have "foolish" voices, but...

When Funaki was thinking about who she'd like in the 3rd gen, she said Danbara's name. They are generation-mates, but still.


122: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


123: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Putting Danbara two generations below Haga when they're kenshuusei generation-mates would feel wrong. And wouldn't having both Danbara and Kaga in the same group cause an uprising?


128: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

That voice doesn't fit CG at all.

It's gotta be Musume.


147: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I don't know if it'll be Kobushi, but Danbara was pretty close with Taguchi in the kenshuusei, LOL.


194: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


198: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

They won't make a new group or anything.

More and more people are leaving the existing groups, and Hello! Pro as a whole is gradually sinking.


200: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

They'd have to add her to the 13th gen, so they won't put her in Musume.


       206: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       She'd just be a 13th gen member added late, then.


205: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Danbara and Kawamura are different, discordant -- they can shake things up, so they're still good.

Whereas Ichioka is calm and won't cause change.


210: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

How long will this go on?

Hey office, hurry up and decide!


211: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Since it's this stupid company, they'll probably want to make a new group after C-ute disbands.

Seems like they'll announce it on the first day of the summer Hello! Con.


       219: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       As expected, I'd be exasperated.


       228: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       I can totally see that happening.

       Announcement at the summer Hello! Con→Indies CDs on sale from fall to the end of the                    year→Major debut in spring or summer of next year.


214: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Ichioka is the one who definitely won't be added to Musume.

Danbara and Kawamura add something, but can you really say Icchan is needed there?


216: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

If they're really creating a new group, it's strange not to also announce Momohime-chan as joining Hello! Pro.

I don't think it'll happen.


227: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I want to see Oda and Danbara do "Daisuki Dakara Zettai ni Yurusanai."

Although I can't imagine how it could happen.


       235: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Do it at Hello! Con or Hina Fes.


       244: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       But they said as long as Oda's here, she won't sing it with anyone but Sayashi.


230: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

If they've already decided this, they can't have anything in mind other than a new unit.

These three just don't fit anywhere else.


259: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

The chances of her joining Momusu are considerably low.

  • The 13th gen just joined.

  • Kudo's not graduating until December, and 14 people is too many.

  • If there are too many people, they won't be able to do auditions next year.

  • If they keep adding kenshuusei one after another, ordinary people will stop auditioning.

290: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Truthfully, a new group would be the best thing for Danbara.
