Tsunku's comments on the name change:
"2014 will mark the 17th year since the name Morning Musume was given to the group, but in order for this group to continue for another 10, 20 or 30 more years, we've decided to add the year next to the name so that everyone will immediately know the answer to simple questions such as "When did they release the song ______ again?" or "When was ____-san a member of Morning Musume?"
This also means that they will be changing to "Morning Musume '15" on January 1, 2015.
Tsunku though said that: "Once we try this out and if things actually become more confusing, then I'll probably take this decision back. But whatever the case, they will be known as 'Morning Musume '14' come the new year, so please root for us!"
End of an era w
And realizing this after 17 years is...
- 加速するオワコン臭大抵末期なんだよなこうなるとThe more they seem like they're heading towards their downfall.
Things like this are usually done when something is heading towards its end, right?
*( it's over)
- この前見たけど全盛期の歌のダンスが全部変わっているんだねすごい違和感あったわI saw them a while back, and all the dance moves changed from their songs during their peak.
It really felt awkward.
This is... (laughs)
'14 is already bad as it is, but one-four? w
- やめた方がいい１年なんかあっという間だぞThey should scratch this idea.
1 year passes by quickly.
People will be waiting for 2048 to come
Someone who doesn't know the group will probably think that Momusu will just be making a comeback for 1 year next year
"We're different from Yaguchi!"
It's like admitting that Dream Morning Musume is the traditional Musume group

- つんく♂もヤキがまわったなww究極のダサさを追求したのかなもしかしてwLooks like Tsunku has become senile ww
Maybe he's in pursuit of the biggest kind of lameness possible w
He's losing his path
So are they gunning for the best new artist award every year? w
Looks like MoMusu are getting lost
- 1年区切りは短くないか？4年周期でモーニング娘。ソチとかモーニング娘。リオデジャネイロとかIsn't 1 year too short?
What about every 4 years? Like Morning Musume Sochi, or Morning Musume Rio de Janeiro?
Why not split up already? Looks like his duty is finished here.
So it'll go like one-four, one-five, one-six...
Does this mean that all their feats and records as "Morning Musume" will come to a halt?
They're now starting to copy AKB48 WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
- つんくが付けるニックネームと同じで全く定着せずに皆忘れるよIt's the same as the nicknames that Tsunku has been giving. Everyone will just forget it without ever sticking on everyone's minds.
- 寺田はハロヲタが思う以上に今年に紅白出場をかけていたんだろうな今年が最後のチャンスと思ってそれが駄目になって改名で再出発を決意したとTerada (Tsunku) must have really wanted to get on this year's Kouhaku, more than what the Hello-wotas are imagining. He probably thought that this year was their last chance. And it all went down the drain, so he probably decided to make a fresh start like this.
I wonder if Morning Musume will make it all the way to 48
- まだ生き残ってるのは評価するもう誰も知らないけどI commend the fact that they have survived up to this point.
No one knows them anymore, though.
They'll be able to go for the best newcomer every year at the Japan Record Awards wwwwwwwwwwww
MoMusu will probably disappear once Michishige graduates w
I think that too much changing of members is the reason for their failure.
I don't think this name will stick
- 中途半端だなそれならもうモーニング娘。を変えろよどうしても過去と比べてしょぼい感じが拭いきれないThat's so half-a$$ed.
He should just change the name Morning Musume instead.
Comparisons to the past is inevitable, and you totally can't wipe off the image that they're just lame now.
That feels half-baked
- もういいよ道重がいなくなったら完全に終わるだろJust stop already.
They'll totally be finished when Michishige leaves.
- 道重さゆみ＆モーニング１４でいいよChange it to Sayumi Michishige & Morning 14 instead
- つんくって基本的にダサいよねモーニング娘。の売れてた時も勢いでごまかしてたけど歌詞とか酷いTsunku's basically lame.
People didn't mind it because of the momentum that they had when they were popular, but even then his lyrics were horrible.
35 more years until the birth of MNG48, huh...
- うわぁ～だっさwww再ブレイク詐欺失敗してやけくそなんだなwwwUwa~ that's lame www
They must be desperate now that their "2nd break" fraud ended up in a failure.
- ネタかと思った最近は勢いあるんじゃなかったっけ？これは終わるグループがやることだろうI thought it was just a joke.
Didn't they have momentum recently?
This is something done by a group that's about to end, right?
Morning Musume Z would have been better
What about making the name Final Morning Musume in their final year?
Ahhh, I think Tsunku has fallen for some strange fortune teller
- 歌踊りともＡＫＢより優れているが、ＡＫＢ商法に完全に打ち負かされているなつんくと秋元のビジネスの才能の違いだろうなI think their singing and dancing is better than AKB, but they're totally losing to the AKB business model.
That must really be the difference between Tsunku and Akimoto's business managing skills.
- >この先も10年20年30年とグループを存続させて行く為にもまだ続けるのかよｗｗｗ> in order for this group to continue for another 10, 20 or 30 more years
They're still going to keep this up? www
- これは来年くるなモー娘。ブームが！あとはマスコミ様が連日報道してくれれば間違いないLooks like the MoMusu boom will come again next year!
All that's left is for the media to keep reporting about them every day.
To think that the label "Morning Musume" is their life force...
