H!P revival group lists

Hello!Projects's revival groups for the H!P cover album, Chanpuru 1~Happy Marriage Song Cover Shuu~, were reviled. And some of the groups don't seem like the best choices.

The new groups are so follows:

Aa!


Natsuyaki Miyabi, Suzuki Airi, Saho Akari


Shin Minimoni

Linlin, Fukuda Kanon, Takeuchi Akari, Miyamoto Karin


Pucchimoni V

Nakajima Saki, Hagiwara Mai, Mano Erina


Zoku Biyuuden

Michishige Sayumi, Junjun, Sugaya Risako


Tanpopo#

Kamei Eri, Mitsui Aika, Kumai Yurina, Okai Chisato
ZYX-α

Niigaki Risa, Kusumi Koharu, Tsugunaga Momoko,
Tokunaga Chinami, Sudou Maasa, Umeda Erika,
Wada Ayaka, Ogawa Saki

The main complaint that I have is Pucchimoni V. ManoEri, Saki, Mai? They don't fit at all. The original Pucchimoni had much deeper and more powerful voices. This new one seems completely wrong. All three of them are also some of my least favorite voices in all of H!P. This group is utter fail to me.
Zoku Biyuuden, or V-U-DEN whatever you wan to call it, also seems like a weird choice to me. I'm not really sure how much sex appeal these 3 have. Sayumi might have had alluring photobooks, but her overall image and voice is suited for something cuter. I also don't think JunJun is vocally strong enough for this. Neither is Risako.
I think ZYX-a has too many members. It looks ZYX-a was the group to shove all the members they didn't know what to do with.
Aa! is a little weird without Reina. They kept Airi and Miyabi in the group, why not Reina too? Especially since Miyabi didn't even have that many lines in the original.
Other than that I'm happy with the new groups. I kinda expected the new Mini Moni to be Egg heavy. I don't really mind it. LinLin and Kanon in the group is enough for me. Tanpopo# seems to be a nice balance of vocals. With Aika, Yurina, and Chisato having deeper vocals for the most part will blend together nicely with Eri's cute voice.


I haven't heard most of the songs from the album yet. I only heard 3 songs so far. I'm mostly likely going to review the album some time in the future.

Risako is awesome in Biyuuden, but yeah, weird choose of members. WTF with Aa! and Pucchimoni? They destroyed my Pucchimoni ;____;

Mano ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬ She's everywhere :(

Risako did sound pretty good, but I didn't like the song at all. They didn't mix together well AT ALL.

I know what you mean about Pucchimoni. They made it way too cute sounding. I can't see them EVER singing Koi ni Knockout and doing it justice.
But I thought Aa! was really good, mostly because it's Buono minus a member.

Mano was everywhere, but I suprisingly enjoyed her voice in this album.

Reina was replaced because she was already in High-King before the revival.

So it'll seem unfair if she's in two groups and the others are in only one.

And plus, Saho Akari doesn't really have another group (besides Shugo Chara Egg, which I think is inactive) so she was put in Aa!

Though, the three-man groups really kills me. It's not really suitable.

Though, I love the songs!
