CommentsEdit

Tsunku’s comments:

«I’ve held a special event for those who have been very supportive of Michiyo Heike, Morning Musume, Taiyo To Ciscomoon, and Coconut Musume. It’s like an event to return favors to the fans. Last summer and this January, we’ve held the collective concerts. I felt very special when I saw the members who seldom saw each other gathered together and made efforts to create one great show. My theme for this time is, “How do I express the same energy into the sound?” The unit consists of Yaguchi and Iida from Tanpopo, Ichii who has become hugely successful in PetitMoni, Inaba who can dance very well in Taiyo To Ciscomoon, Kominato who has returned from her illness [he is referring to her absence from Taiyou to Ciscomoon’s 6th single; «illness»], Mika from Coconut Musume, and Lehua who is a brand new member. I am expecting a huge growth from each performer. The reason I named the unit Ao (= blue) was because of its fresh, speedy image. The unit has many girls, but that’s why the energy and speed literally jumps out of them and reach out to people. I hope they can perform digital-punk style well. I’m sure they will do fine though.»
