Few things make me happier then seeing Morning Musume in the english speaking world. The chance of my favourite ex member Mari Yaguchi ( the woman who got me into Jpop) in it is even better!
I just noticed Kotaku has posted this article about how Mari looks like a Final Fantasy Charater! I sense a cosplay coming up! Combine that with the fact shes finally releasing a solo single, her first single in years and I'm pretty happy!
Sqaure Enix has often been acused of using j-idols as inspiration for their Final Fantasy Charaters. Maybe they really do? Her costume is deffinatly not the hottest of FF but atleast its easy? (if you have patience with bead work)
