TBH, I'm glad C-ute made the choice to disband than to do what Berryz did. Berryz's choice gives me a bad taste considering that the majority of the members probably didn't want to disband or give up the idol life in the first place.

C-ute seems like they got their priorities straight and are so ready to start their next chapter in life when June 2017 comes. For Berryz, it took 2 1/2 months for the first of the bunch to decide what to do next, and that was Momochi becoming Country Girls' playing manager. :momochi:

Me and the boy are considering trying to go to Japan to see them off. Right now it's just a pipe dream, since we're planning on moving to California in the beginning of next year, but we are going to see if we can swing it.

It took so long only because a majority of the group didn't want to stop being idols. It was clear that only Risako didn't want it anymore, since she doesn't even publicly interact with the group. But Berryz was known for having one of the longest stable line ups in H!P history, losing a member like Risako, who pretty much was the ace of the group in early times and was one of the most popular members, would hurt the group even more. I'm glad what C-ute is fully thought out and wanted by all five members, because that's just more fair to them. I wish Berryz had that same amount of fairness and communication in their group but hey, what can you do.

I don't think it was just Risako. Yurina wanted to do her own thing too (modelling) and Chinami's gone back to studying. I wouldn't be surprised if Maasa was for the hiatus too since she's just doing theatre stuff nowadays.

If anything, the only ones who wanted to stay on were probably Shimizu, Momoko and Miyabi. And I can't see Momoko hanging around for many more years, since she's got her degree now (IIRC) and wants to be a teacher (primary/kindergarten, I can't remember which). Shimizu and Miyabi will probably continue doing what they're doing for a while though, since Miyabi's got her new group and Shimizu seems pretty active as an advisor (even if she doesn't make final decisions, she still seems to be at least watching the KSS/Tsubaki closely).

I think Chinami wanted to stay as well. She also became an H!P Advisor even though she wasn't given any behind the scene works like Shimizu. It was months after graduating H!P when she decided to study abroad.

H!P members — and idols in general — routinely do solo work while still performing with their respective groups. Groups don't need to break up just so the members can do solo work. Despite that, the only member of Berryz who is not still active during this so-called "hiatus" is Risako. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that she was the primary reason for the breakup. She was tired of show business, and the group simply could not continue without its ace. Other, secondary reasons might include their age, image change, stagnating sales, personal relationships, and so on, but let's be real.

Anyhow, since the breakup was unavoidable, the rest of Berryz made peace with it and found other work that interests them and keeps them busy. But I doubt it was their first choice.

In contrast, ℃-ute have stuck it out for an additional two years, so all of the same secondary reasons as above have had time to compound and their desire to break up feels more genuine because of it. There is no Risako in their case.

I wonder if it was really a clean cut, quit or stay, for Berryz members. It was probably not. One may be inclined to one direction, but the reasons were probably many and different for each individual. In the end, they came up with their solution, and we can only respect their decision. No one is wrong.

I do agree that C-ute's solution is better. It gives me a piece of mind because at least we know that the members are ready to move on.

Plus, we know that for sure that Maimi, Airi and Chisato will still be in show business. I really hope Nakky stay as well though, or better if she join Cappy to help KSS.

I just can't help but feel Maimai's scandal was a catalyst in the discussion of their future.

In any case, even though I've never been a big enough fan to listen to their albums or go to their concerts, I joined the FC just so I can get tix to go next year lol

"catalyst" is a bit of an exaggeration.
there's either two ways you can look at it.

But I personally think C-ute/Management already knew C-ute were going to end soon so they didn't care about her scandal, and its also probably why Maimai probably didn't care too much about getting caught.

I still think that objectively, for them to dissolve while they're still reasonably popular they can have some momentum to realise their dreams of actually having a SSA concert. The girls have been talking about it since early last year, but with how slow HP's been and how C-ute's concert ticket sales were starting to slow down, it was a good move in that regard.

C-ute want to end with a good legacy rather than gradually decline.

I am a bit bitter that we won't be getting our own C-ute next gen unit. Doesn't seem fair. But y'know...what can you do :wasntme:

No way is H!P just going to retire all those songs forever so you'll undoubtedly get your wish one way or another, even if they're not specifically known as C-ute '18.

um... Kobushi and Tsubaki weren't declared until after berryz disbanded... It's quite early to make such statements, for all we know they have another group to replace C-ute up their sleeves.

^ After the Berryz hiatus was announced, you mean. Kobushi Factory performed at Berryz Kōbō Matsuri and as an opening act for Berryz' final show at Budōkan.

Right. Either way, there's still almost a year until C-ute disbands, anything can happen, it's still waaaayy too early to jump to conclusions

Kobushi was announced in January 2015, but Tsubaki wasn't formed until like a month after Berryz into hiatus. I doubt they're going to announce a new group now, they'll probably announce it closer to when it's time for C-ute to head out the door.

In ℃-ute's case I definitely wouldn't be surprised if Maimai's scandal, or at the very least Maimai herself, started discussions about it if they hadn't already been talking about it when Berryz went on hiatus. I'm sure it's been talked about amongst them for a while now.

I also wonder if Chisato's vocal cord surgery sparked some talk as well. I dunno.

I think it's just time really. It's just them all becoming adults, and their rival group being gone, and the girls getting to 25, and not wanting to be "C-ute" forever.

That, too. I mean, in the end, it doesn't really matter what caused them to start talking about it or how they discussed it. This is the conclusion they came to and I respect that. It doesn't seem out of place or anything, and I'm sure it wasn't just one incident that started the discussion about potentially disbanding. I agree that it's time.

Part of my knew they would be leaving H!P soon but the selfish part of me wanted them to continue on as just a regular band. Just reminds me of how I'm getting old :(

There's an online petition to get C-ute to come to America. You should sign it, even if they already have plans to go abroad this winter, if UF catches wind it can only help.

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/prov ... -usa-venue

It's at 200+ signatures already.
