Well OK, that was quick.
After the rumor of a new mystery guest related somehow to Hello! Project was circulated around the web a million times, it would seem as though the cat jumped out of the bag prematurely, screaming and shouting the secret name across the land and possibly peeing on the couch. That guest? Well, our friends at JapanFiles confirm that it's one half of Hangry and Angry. Specifically, the Hangry half. I totally called it!
Hangry is Hitomi Yoshizawa, former group leader of Morning Musume, one of the the musical acts performing at Anime Expo this year. She won't be performing, but will be appearing directly after the Morning Musume performance to meet fans and sign autographs. The group did make a for-reals apperance and performance at Sakura-con earlier this year.
So to all of you who were trying to guess the identity and build suspense and get all amped up for the big reveal next week...well, I guess you can get back to not talking about it now. Nevertheless, you can hit the jump for some video and more details about her appearance, so there's still that.
Half of the power duo Hangry & Angry will appear at Anime Expo to sign autographs on Friday, July 3 from 4:30-5:30 PM (immediately following the Morning Musume concert).
Limited amounts of Hangry & Angry CDs and merchandise will be available!
In the meantime, you can see photos from Hangry & Angry's USA debut concert at Sakura-Con on the JapanFiles.com spotlight page:
