Opening: Morning Musume – Shabondama



Allen does not like Christmas. Merry Christmas Allen! =)

The Topic: Tanaka Reina announces her graduation from Morning Musume

Your initial reaction? Do you care?
Admit it, you got trolled by the title of Morning Musume’s spring concert and thought Sayumi was getting the boot.

Does Tanaka’s departure signal the death knell for the remaining remnants of past Musume?
Was this graduation long overdue?
Will the 11th generation miracle girl Sakura Oda take all of Reina’s lines?
Or will this be the rise of Sayashi Riho as lead vocal bitch?
How long do you think Sayu will last before she gets retired?

Is Nakano Sun Plaza the right place for Tanaka to graduate? Should she be sent out to pasture in a bigger venue? Or is Momusu’s general popularity so low that it’s the best that H!P and UFP cut their losses at a smaller venue?

When does “The Chosen One” a.k.a. “The Second Coming of Jesus” Miyamoto Karin get inserted into Momusu?

What do you think about Tanaka’s band?
Where the hell is the drummer?
Does anyone know who the bass player and lead guitar are?
What kind of music do you think they will play?
What would you name the band?

Ending: Tanaka Reina – Kira Kira Fuyu no Shiny G
