Be a Nice Guy, Got It?

I’ve been neglecting the Hello! Project universe lately, and I know it. They just haven’t been interesting me lately.

It’s Cold, But I’ll Keep My Skirt and Tail on, TYVM.

Oh, well hello there, Hello! Project. It’s been quite a while, huh? Honestly, nothing much has been stirring up in the H!P universe; I mean, unless you stalk the members and know every single project they do, there hasn’t been much going on. However, C-ute’s and S/mileage’s profile pictures have been updated. Let’s take a look, shall we?
