The End of v-u-den
June 28, 2008

Today is the day. v-u-den is no more as of June 29th, 2008. They are performing their last two concerts today.

I will miss them. I only started listening to them about a month before their disbandment was announced but they were a really great group. Their songs are really enjoyable & Ajisai Ai Ai Monogatari is one of my favorite Hello! Project songs. My other favorite songs by them are Koi no Nukegara, Jajauma Paradise, Nanni mo Iwazu ni I Love You & Fantasy. I didn’t really like their image though because since mid-late 2006 they were promoted as “sexy”. I read one time that this unit was supposed to be aimed for women & they were in the early days but then they just became wota-bait which is kinda sad.

Rika is a H!P member who never really kept me interested but I want her to do something else than release 2 photobooks every year. Yui is super adorable but she never really stood out to me. Erika was my favorite of the group, & I really really hope she gets something new to do. I hope everyone will get something new to do, because this was a really great, talented group.

Sayonara, v-u-den.

I really like the PV & the song. To be honest I just listened to the Morning Musume version of the song for the first time about 2 days ago & I liked it. But v-u-den’s version is way better…fits better for their voices & a smaller group. I really, really like this song, I can see myself listening to it a lot, maybe even buying it.

I’m sad to see them go…they had really great songs. My favorite song from them is Ajisai Ai Ai Monogatari which is also one of my favorite Hello! Project songs. I didn’t really like their “sexy” image though – they kind of went downhill with me from that, but I love listening to their older songs. Apparently this new song isn’t “sexy” so I’m glad they are getting something good to end the group. Also, I always hear people complaining on how bad their sales were – why? Artists like Melon Kinenbi, Nakazawa Yuuko & Maeda Yuki sell way less than them, but I don’t see nearly as much complaining. I just hope the do something with Yui & Erika. I doubt either of them will become soloists & I really don’t hope that they end up like Yasuda Kei or Ayaka. I’m not a big fan of Rika but since she is one of the more popular members she’d probably just stay in Ongaku Gatas or go solo eventually (although personally I think she isn’t ready for that yet). Anyway, I’m really going to miss v-u-den & I hope all 3 members will continue to be active.
