Why I Love Gocchin

Posted in Hello!Project, Maki Goto at 10:19 pm by aiwish472

To be quite honest, I don’t know.

There’s just something about her as a Maki as a singer and a person that makes her wonderful. She revolutionized Morning Musume when she joined at 13 in 1999, adding a sort of youthfulness that the other members didn’t have. Sales shot up when she joined, and slowly began to take a turn for the worst when she left. She’s not sickeningly sweet, but the thought of Maki being mean never crosses my mind, either. Her face isn’t perfect; she has a wider nose than most. She’s good, but she’s not an amazing singer… while some are much better than others, no member of Hello! Project truly is.

She puts on a show, but it’s not extravagant.

I think I like Maki because there’s an aura of realness about her, especially compared to other Hello! Project members. She’s not extreme anything. She’s one of the most neutral, boring members to join Morning Musume. But she’s a good singer, and that makes up for everything she lacks.

She could improve, but any known figure could. My goodnish, any person on this earth, you, me, famous or not, could improve themselves.

There is no reason to like her. She’s just Gocchin, and that’s fine with me.

    I know what you mean. Even though her presence wasn’t really felt, she had that sort of authenticity towards her. She was your girl next door type. Well, before Tsunku made her the slut that she is now. :/
