C-ute clean up

Now, at this very moment, when almost the whole Hello! Project fan blogosphere is thunderstrucked about Erika Umeda’s graduation announcement and still trying to recover from Kanna Arihara’s departure all I can say is that this clean up seems to be a very healthy evolution for C-ute.

Of couse this is only my personal opinion but hey, all these kind of fan based things are. So why should I be sorry about saying that Kanna’s and Erika’s deaprtures make C-ute more nifty, more solid and also more powerful.

To be honest, Kanna was always background girl in C-ute. I like (note that I’m not talking in past tense) her individuality and kind of insurgency but she never was at home in C-ute. I guess we still don’t know what was the real reason Kanna left C-ute and H!P but I hope to see her in an other group in the future. In the group that suits for her better than C-ute. Something alternative rock, punk-ish maybe?! But far away from the idol world. Kanna, if you happen to read this, remember that I’m waiting.

Then there is Erika. C-ute’s tallest girl who never got me convinced. Most of all every time she was trying to be so-called-funny I felt quite embarrassed. Her overacting wasn’t hilarious and when I watch C-ute’s concert DVDs I try to avoid those Erika-centered skits between songs. In spite of that I wish Erika a happy and challenging future in the trendy fashion world. I have an inkling that she is going to do there quite well.

As you might know Erika and Kanna are not the only ones who have left C-ute. Megumi Murakami got sacked in 2006 as a result of her “boyfriend scandal”. At that time I wasn’t yet a C-ute fan but her departure gets me still thinking what kind of C-ute might have been if she had not left the group.  Because Megumi was good singer and as I look old video clips of her today I must say that I like her character. Maybe she was also kind of rebel in C-ute? Hmmm, maybe C-ute is not for rebel girls at all.

Soon we have 5 nin C-ute and it’s fine for me. We are going to have a compact group with inner and outer harmony. But I’m hoping that after Erika’s graduation (October 25th) we don’t see any more departures. Because if any of these remaining 5 members leave the group it would significantly hurt the chemistry of C-ute.
