The 97th Class is Born -- 40 New TMS Babies  
It's been a fun few days with bluerevue here, and arlecchinic back. ♥

Today was a very emotional morning.

Articles inform us that one of the girls who got in is the daughter of former Yukigumi musumeyaku Tsukushino Aya.

Another successful applicant was one "Kenna Shiraishi Megan" (obviously I don't know the proper spelling), whose father is American and apparently took music and dance lessons in New York.

We've decided to keep a special eye on a girl whom Cate dubbed "Earmuffs" even though she took them off once we reached the announcement site. She's the terribly cute one wearing a red coat in the middle of the NHK clip.

More pictures to follow.

Oh my god, I think I have fallen in love with the one in the tan coat who cries in the NHK bit. <333333333333333333

Awww, I love watching the clip, it makes all warm and fuzzy inside to see (at least some of them) being so happy about making it! ^^
And the one in the red coat is really really cute, she looks like she totally can't belive that she made it (which I hope she did?!)

Also can't wait to see that "Megan", we should bombard her with letters and congratulate her (and thank her that there now is someone who can teach them proper English pronounciation XD )

Funny! Those were my thoughts too.

But these girls are sooo cute (I don't know if I should really say that because they're all roughly my age, maybe a few are older than I...), but it's adorable to see people so happy and to have those kind of emotions is like; WOW!

I'm really pleased with the turn of new baby 'siennes!

Just 40? That's the smallest class I've ever heard of. Along with the huge number of retirements we got this year. I wonder if Hankyu isn't trying to shrink the size of its troupes.

Which I think is a GREAT idea, because we'll get to see more girls in backup roles, instead of crowding the back of the stage in pink tu-tus. :)

Ignoring the fact that I can never tell the babies apart I think I would have to keep an eye out for the one in the centre of this picture:

http://www.47news.jp/CN/200903/CN2009033001000328.html

since her bag says Stockholms Stadsbibliotek i.e. the City library of Stockholm. I would love to know if she has some sort of connection to Stockholm and/or Sweden.

THANK GOODNESS I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE TO THINK THAT!
I thought I was going a little crazy, when I saw her face I thought she looked a little like a tiny carbon copy. It took me a lot of time replying that small section to be like: Ehh???

She's cute! I can't wait to mark their progresses.

Doesn't the one in the red coat kind of look like Shijou Rui? I might just be crazy...

Aww, the red one is so adorable. While all of the other girls are screaming, she's just standing there beaming.

Yay new babies! How adorable! <3333 That girl in red is indeed very cute; I love the look on her face. <3
I can't wait to see how they all grow up.
