The Momusu Phenomenon

July 14, 2011

Morning Musume this year celebrated its 14th anniversary, and I as an avowed otaku – ( °٢° )(^▼^), etc. – would be remiss if I didn’t dedicate an entry (or five) of my blog to the group, of whose music I have so many very happy memories.

Assembled in ’97 by vocalist-cum-producer Tsunku of Sharan Q: Abe Natsumi, Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori, Fukuda Asuka, and Ishiguro Aya – altogether known as Morning Musume (モーニング娘。) – released their first official single, Morning Coffee (モーニングコーヒー), in early ’98.
