November 5, 2014 - Country Musume is revived as Country Girls
It has been revealed that Country Musume has changed their name to Country Girls and added five new members: Inaba Manaka and Yamaki Risa from Hello Pro Kenshuusei, as well as three newcomers: Morito Chisaki, Shimamura Uta, and Ozeki Mai. Berryz Koubou member Tsugunaga Momoko will also join the group as their "playing manager."
Satoda Mai, who joined the group in 2002, remains a part of the group as their general manager.
The group will debut its new line-up at the Hello! Project concert tour in winter 2015.

November 4, 2014 - Tanabe Nanami and Yoshihashi Kurumi completed their training within Hello Pro Kenshuusei.
On November 4, it was announced that Tanabe Nanami and Yoshihashi Kurumi ended their Hello Pro Kenshuusei training.
Tanabe joined the program in 2009 as a part of Shugo Chara Egg!. Yoshihashi joined in early 2011 and she had been missing in action since spring 2014.

October 17, 2014 - Tsunku's cancer returns
Having announced less than a month ago that his cancer was in remission, Tsunku announced on his blog the unfortunate news that his cancer troubles have continued. He reports that even in September he had symptoms such as pain and swelling which caused him to get another biopsy of his vocal cords. While in New York for Morning Musume's recent concert, he got the news that cancer had been found. He quickly returned to Japan for more surgery, and will be taking time to recuperate.

October 8, 2014 - Yajima Maimi will be the next Hello! Project Leader
On October 8, Michishige announced in an interview in New York that she nominated current ℃-ute leader Yajima Maimi to become the next Hello! Project leader once she graduates on November 26.
All previous leaders of Hello! Project were from Morning Musume. With the group mainly consisting teenagers by the time of her graduation, Michishige personally requested that Yajima become the 5th Hello! Project leader.
During the interview, Michishige said that Hello! Project will experience rapid changes with the indefinite hiatus of Berryz Koubou and the name change of S/mileage. She believes that Yajima can do the job. Yajima herself replied, saying that she will do her best.
Once the Morning Musume '14 Concert Tour Aki GIVE ME MORE LOVE ~Michishige Sayumi Sotsugyou Kinen Special~ show at Yokohama Arena concludes, she will become the fifth leader of Hello! Project, and the first Hello! Project leader to not be from Morning Musume.
