This will be an exciting year for Hello! Project fans. We really don’t know what to expect anymore, do we?. I’m defiantly looking forward to a new member. I’ve become quiet the S/mileage fan over the past year. I’ve never been to such an intense concert as their Yokohama Blitz stop on their Aki ~Devil Smile Angel Smile~ tour last Autumn.
