Three new Hello Pro Kenshuusei members have been revealed earlier this month at the Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2014 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~ event.
These girls are as follows:
Maho is a fifteen-year-old from Kanagawa, Japan.
Miu is a thirteen-year-old from Gifu, Japan. Miu and Suzuki Airi of C-ute are the only members in Hello Project from the Gifu prefecture.
Kana is currently twelve years old and is from Saitama, Japan. She was previously a member of an acting program, Musical Village. Tamura Meimi was also part of this program. She has already starred in several television shows, commercials and theatre shows.
These three girls will form the 21st generation of the Hello Pro Kenshuusei. It is not known if they are participating in the Morning Musume 12th Generation Golden Auditions.
I am amazed at how much younger members are joining the training system. It may be due to the fact that I am getting older, but I am still not used to seeing so many young trainees or members of Hello Project. However, I am still interested in seeing the skills and talents of each of these young ladies. I am especially interested in Saito Kana because she already has a bit of experience in the entertainment industry. She was also a member of the same acting program Meimi used to be part of. Meimi is one of the best performers in Hello Project so I cannot help but to wonder if such traits shared by Kana.
I will continue to watch and cheer on these Kenshuusei as they continue to train and improve!
