On June 24th, talento Satoda Mai revealed on her blog that she and her husband, professional baseball player Tanaka Masahiro (Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles), are now strong supporters ('mononofu') of idol group Momoiro Clover Z.

This statement quickly became a hot topic on the web, because Tanaka is actually known for being as an extremely passionate fan of AKB48. In one recent headline, it was even said that he pressed for a baseball game to finish early, so that he would be able to catch the live broadcast of the 'AKB48 General Election', although he later denied it on his Twitter. "I do enjoy the general election a lot, but baseball still has a higher priority in my life," he wrote.

However, Satoda's statement seems to be true, because Tanaka changed his entrance song from FUNKY MONKEY BABYS "Ato Hitotsu" to Momoiro Clover Z' "Hashire!". It was strange sight for people to see him frequently tweeting about AKB48 and SKE48, but he is now using Momoclo's song as his entrance song.

The response was immediate and many followers replied, "Your wife is a former Country Musume, your favorites are AKB, and your entrance song is Momoclo. You're such a DD!" The term DD ('daredemo daisuki') is a well-known slang term among idol fans that describe fans who aren't just devoted to one group.

Satoda and Tanaka aren't the only celebrities that expressed their love for Momoiro Clover Z in the past and/or more recently. Some of her more prominent fans include Nankai Candies' Yamasato Ryota, Hanya's Kanada Satoshi, actress Kitano Kii, Drunk Dragon's Tsukaji Muga, Bananaman's Himura Yuki, and most recently talento Minami Akina, as well as actress Sasaki Nozomi.

Charming more and more celebrities with their incredible dances and powerful concerts can only have a positive effect for this aspiring idol group.
