On November 16 under the name, Mobekimasu a super unit created from the combined units of Morning Musume + 10th generation members, Berryz Koubou, C-ute, Mano Erina, “new” S/mileage, members of Hello! Pro Egg, are going to be releasing a single called “Busu ni Naranai Tetsugaku”.
The single will come in seven editions and each unit will have their own coupling track on an individual single. As an added bonus the single will come with handshake tickets for an H!P fan event.
So as H!P becomes H!P48 for at least one single [ multiple units combined for a single , units with their own coupling tracks ,trainees having an active role and multiple CD versions ,wota handshake tickets] ,I would caution fans of H!P thinking that this will be some kind of epic sales result by counting the average sales of each unit together .
H!P units for the most part share wotas with a few single unit hardcore dedicated fans . A good measuring stick is the old H!P All Stars single which sold 60,000+ copies. Anything less then that would be a disappointment for this release .
While I may find it funny that this has so many comparisons to another company that it`s like being H!P48 ,I think a single of this type just maybe what the agency needs to generate new interest.
