Morning Musume and Hey! Say! JUMP? No Way!

Yamada Concert

A big thanks to chibilover14 for directing my attention to this picture!! This post is brought to you by Yama-chan, who loves you all!!! Now like a week ago, I made a post about Koda Kumi and Hey! Say! JUMP, connecting each member to one of her songs. Now I’m going to connect everyone to a member of Morning Musume!!

Takahashi Ai -> Takaki Yuya [both up front on the songs / performances, both able to be cool and cute / strong vocals / good dancers]

Niigaki Risa -> Nakajima Yuto [switching off in terms of attention although mostly in front / extremely sweet with amazing personalities / one of my favorites of their respective groups]

Kamei Eri -> Yabu Kota [a very fair amount of attention / both look fantastic / both stand out in their respective groups / dance with great skill and have catchy voices]

Michishige Sayumi -> Morimoto Ryutaro [kawaii and sweet…which is pretty much it haha]

Tanaka Reina -> Yamada Ryosuke [the “star” of the group as it wereΒ / both always are at the front of their groups and have many solo opportunities / both can pull of cute and hot / strong vocals and dancing]

Kusumi Koharu -> Chinen Yuri [transformation from really cute to more mature but still can pull of the cute vibe / vocals that stand out]

Mitsui Aika -> Arioka Daiki [probably the cutest of their respective groups / have their moments in the spotlight / fatnastic personality that makes me love them]

Junjun -> Inoo Kei [don’t usually get the attention they deserve but are awesome people anyway / their personalities really shine through on makings of and interviews and stuff]

Linlin -> Okamoto Keito [basically the same as above but I prefer Junjun and Kei although I still like both Linlin and Keito!]

So that’s the connections between Morning Musume and Hey! Say! JUMP!!!! I’m sure you all noticed that Hikaru didn’t get a partner, which is really sad! But there are only 9 members of Morning Musume so I’m really sorry Hikaru!!!



  1. O_O i LOVE morning musume!!

    i think ai-chan is the yamada though. she’s really the lead singer, dancer, front girl for the group. she gets lots of solos and lots of screen time. reina does too but to a lesser extent than ai.

    reina is definitely the takaki, doesn’t play seconds to anyone but yamada.

    eri is really scatter brained i don’t know if there’s anyone like that in jump though. hikaru maybe? eri is known as the really funny one. but she’s also known as one of the best dancers so maybe yuto?

    risa is definitely yabu. even though she’s the subleader she’s the one to kind of take charge and keep the members in line when it needs to be done but also has a lot of fun and can be playful. she’s sexy also ^///^

    sayumi is chinen. even though they’re both cute and that seems to be their most prominent character they’re both super smart and super quick. they also both have a habbit of having a sharp tongue.

    koharu is…she might be hikaru too. koharu is a total and complete spazz and can’t focus on anything at all. but maybe in a way keito because she was really ackward and fidgity on camera when she first joined but now she’s pro. she could also be ryutaro in that aspect too i suppose…

    aika is a good call with daiki. they probably are both the most caring members of each group and have a habit of switching between cute and badass.

    junjun is definitely kei. even though they’re both over looked and don’t get many solos or times to shine they definitely still manage to be very popular members especially in the western world. also she’s known for being pretty smart sometimes.

    linlin really isn’t over looked at all. i think she’s the one without a counter part. the closet i can think of is either kei or daiki because she’s already a pro. she cam into morning musume not really needing any instruction and is kind of on idol auto pilot. whoever seems perfect at what they do in jump in linlin.

    • I can see what you mean about Ai and Yamada. He is kinda like the leader of Hey! Say! JUMP…unoficially of course XD

      I think sometimes Reina is given the kind of “star” treatment since she has a lot of solo parts and is front in the videos and stuff. I mean there are others that have been there longer but she seems to really get the spotlight and that’s kinda why I directed her to Yamada since they’re both “the stars” πŸ™‚

      Eri is hilarious and I love her. Just like Yabu! And they’re both very attractive!!

      Admittedly, I think the reason I chose Risa to be with Yuto was that at first they didn’t grab my attention but then they grew to be one of my fav members of their groups. And they always make me happy XD

      Linlin isn’t overlooked? LOL, they coulda fooled me XD
      Although it’s kinda like Junjun and Linlin are one person sometimes…they always share their lines when one of them has a duo line [i.e. Pepper Keibu]

      Thanks for the comment!! It’s always nice to know the thoughts of my readers πŸ™‚

  2. linlin is definitely underappreciated but especially in the last couple of months she’s been getting more attention for her singing ability and even more so now for being the leader of the new mini moni.

    but yeah tsunku treats them like one person.

    is yabu funny? cause i’ve only been in the fandom for a few months and everytime i see him he’s like serious leader.

    • Oh I didn’t know that she was the leader of the new mini moni! Good for her getting the attention she deserves!! She always seems so happy and positive in those making ofs so I’m glad she’s getting to be in the forefront πŸ™‚

      I think Yabu is funny. He can be pretty goofy sometimes! LOL, I wouldn’t call him serious at all XD
      I mean of course everyone can be serious sometimes but overall I don’t think he’s as serious as one might think. With time you’ll be able to see more of him πŸ™‚
