So there’s a new Hello! Project themed pachinko machine coming out featuring past and present Morning Musume members plus Sotada Mai and Matsuura Aya (yay! Glad to see her doing… something?) as hostesses in Tsunku’s club. Which, to be fair, sounds like an idea that would print money in real-life. Actually, I’m kind of surprised Tsunku hasn’t tried his hand at hostess clubs yet, seeing how he even has his own maid cafe.

All of that is fine and dandy, but what concerns me now is a little clip from that machine’s promotional video showing Risa sing The Matenrou Show alongside Sayu and Reina:*

Wow!

She really sounds great in that song, which is all the more shame that she didn’t get to officially participate in that release. I don’t care if this is released on DVD, CD, cassette, 8-track, or even Edison cylinder, MAKE IT HAPPEN UFA!

* For those who are not aware, Risa graduated from Morning Musume after their 49th single, Renai Hunter. One Two Three / The Matenrou Show, Morning Musume’s 50th single, came out after her graduation, and thus no version of this song containing her vocals was known, or even thought to, exist.
