Tsunku?, who previously revealed that there would be an important announcement about Morning Musume '14, made a comment, "In order for Morning Musume '14 to become the most powerful group, I decided to form a new unit."

The leader of Morning Musume '14, Michishige Sayumi said, "We just changed our name to 'Morning Musume '14' this year, and now we are forming a new unit. I am bewildered honestly.", and other members also followed her saying, "This is surprising as it's too sudden." and "Unacceptable."

Regardless of the members' opposition, Tsunku? revealed, "I am also thinking about releasing a CD. The choreography and the song are almost complete. I am creating a formation dance including Morisanchu." Hearing that, Mischishige said passionately, "I can never let them take the center position!"

The new CM starring Morimusu will begin airing on January 24.

At the conference, Aikawa Sho, Goriki Ayame, and Fukushi Sota also made an appearance.

LOL.... Why do i feel like we just got trolled by Tsunku... I thought it was gonna be something serious and it turned out like this... Still love the idea since this will gives a much needed outlet into more variety programs, cant wait for the benefits this will reap by joining forces with well known comedians

Wait, so does this mean there is no more morning musume? If there isn't then Tsunku is a idiot.. and I hate this idea... but if its just a sub unit then its not as bad . . .

Since this is a subunit, I pretty sure that Morning Musume is not gone. The whole annoncing thing was a little bit overhyped, but it ended with really good news and more exposure for MM
