We are already halfway through the year. Time is sure flying! Hello Project has released a few songs for the year, so far. Morning Musume ’16 has made a comeback and Kobushi Factory will be making a comeback at the end of this month.
Juice=Juice is slated for a comeback in September, so I am looking forward to that. I hope to see a comeback from Country Girls and ANGERME soon. Also, I hope that Tsubaki Factory gets their major debut this year!

* Major singles refer to the official singles from main Hello Project groups (C-ute, Morning Musume ’16, ANGERME, Juice=Juice, Country Girls and Kobushi Factory). Digital singles are not included in this list (i.e. “Otona no Jijou” by NEXT YOU).
