The return of Kago Ai to H!P

Fucking FINALLY!

Kago will take part in the Hello! Project 2018 SUMMER ~ALL FOR ONE~/~ONE FOR ALL~ concert tour, specifically, the Nakano shows on August 25 and 26th. On the 25th, she’ll appear with Airi Suzuki in the early show, and with Kanon Fukuda in the late show. On the 26th Kago will appear with Kei Yasuda and Hitomi Yoshizawa in the early show.  Sadly, Tsuji’s pregnancy will keep her — and any hope of a W revival  — on hold for the time being.

Even if it’s only for a couple of days, this fills me more joy than I can convey in words. This makes me happier than the Fukuda return, because I became a Morning Musume fan when the 4th Gen was still the newest, and Kago and Nono were acting like unsupervised puppies all of the time. Mostly, it’s just the right thing to do. Honestly, it has been the right thing to do for years now, but I don’t want to dwell on the negative, here, I just want to bask in the glory of the return of one of H!P’s greatest singers to the H!P family. I don’t know who finally pulled the trigger on the decision to make this happen, and I don’t really care. I’m just ecstatic that it was made.

Artist’s rendering of how I feel about the return of Kago.

Oh, Sayaka Iichi will also be appearing for a couple of shows, which is kinda sorta newsworthy, I guess, but not really. Now that H!P has done the right thing and welcomed Kago-chan back to their stage, can we talk about that 3rd W album?
