It was announced that Kobushi Factory's Ogawa Rena will be going on a Haitus. She will be absent until at least mid-august. Renako has been suffering from anxiety neurosis. This means Rena won't take part in the upcoming Kobushi Factory events nor in the Hello!Project summer tour.  Let's all support Rena and Kobushi Factory during these hard times.

Update on Aikawa Maho

Aikawa Maho gave an update on her status. She has been doing better and is currently at university studing Photography. From January until March, Aiai couldn't leave the house, but she is currently doing well with daily life. She is in contact with the ANGERME members and wants to stay in ANGERME. Maho, however, doesn't feel like she could handle the stress of being an idol yet, so she asks us to be patient. She won't be returning for the Angerme fall tour. After this managment, Maho, her family and doctors will speak about her returning or not.

Kobushi Factory updated their profile picture

With the termination of Fuji Rio's contract, it was only a matter of time before Kobushi Factory would update their profile picture to their new 7 member line-up.  The picture features the 7 members in their Shalala! Yareru Hazu sa outfits. They are just some individual pictures pasted togheter to form a group photo. Some thing haven't changed yet (blog header, twitter profile, youtube), but this will most likely happen in the upcoming few days. Let's support Kobushi Factory as this will be a very hard time for them.

Tsubaki Factory announced details for their upcoming single!

Image
Tsubaki Factory announced the details for their 2nd major debut single! The single will be released on the 27th of July and is called: Shuukatsu Sensation/Waratte/Hana Moyou The single will be released in 7 versions (3 regular, 3 limited and 1 special edition)! These are the covers: Limited A Limited A features the girls in their Shuukatsu outfits. It's quite a nice cover with them "running". It's simple yet very cute. I love the pink line as it gives the cover color.
Limited B How can such simple covers been so beautiful? I think these are the outfits for Waratte, but it wouldn't suprise me if Hana moyou has two outfits to show (like with ANGERME's Koi nara Hajimaru). The outfits are cute, weird, yet cute. I love how white the cover is as it makes them stand out so much. 
Limited C Ahhh I love this! I love the effect and the colors! Yes for this cover and those beautiful girls!
Regular A Another simple yet cute cover for Shuukatsu. I really love how they are all…
