Dear Tsunku: C-ute
So like every Hello Project fan out there I have my personal wishes and requests for each Hello Project group. Whether we believe that a certain member needs more lines, if another member should share the spotlight, whether we want to hear another type of song from this group or if we believe the group runs smoothly just as is; we all have our own opinions. Here are my wishes for five member group of Hello Project: C-ute.
C-ute is one of my favorite groups not only in Hello Project but in the Japanese pop world. They are continually improving and they continue to impress me with their skills. I believe that they do deserve the chance to perform in Nippon Budokan.
With that being said I do not have many wishes or suggestions for the group. I love C-ute and the way they are currently and I only hope for them to gain continued success. I also love the fact that the line distribution in their lead singles is fairly distributed and we see the face of every member for a continued length of time in their music videos. On the topic of music videos, however, I only have one wish for C-ute; not just for C-ute but for all future videos for all groups in Hello Project. It is sometimes nice to see the innovative, colorful and artistically designed closed sets in which the music video takes place but personally as of recently this has become quite a bore for me. It would be nice to see some music videos actually take place outside such as C-ute’s “Campus Life ~Umarete Kite Yokatta~” and “Kimi wa Jitensha Watashi wa Densha de Kitaku” or like Morning Musume’s “Seishun Collection”, S/mileage’s “Suki-chan” and Berryz Kobo’s “Very Beauty”. It is refreshing to see a music video take place outdoors sometimes.
My final wish or suggestion lies within the choreography that the group undertakes and performs. C-ute is one of the best (if not the best) dance group in Hello Project. Their choreography is complex and full of energy and I am glad that you have challenged them with such difficult and fun dances. Their previous single, “Crazy Kanzen na Otona” was a hit because of the sexy and challenging choreography and great music. C-ute is not only a great musical group but also a spectacular dance group. An improvement in synchronization and timing would only help them excel as well. I wish you continue to challenge them so they can only improve, show a greater level of their talents and continue to entertain and ‘WOW’ fans worldwide.
As said previously, C-ute is one of my favorite groups in Hello Project alongside Morning Musume. I am impressed by their improvement and success and only wish for continue improvement and fortune in the future. I will continue to support this group and I am fully anticipating their 22nd single with great expectations.
All the best,
