Popular girl group Morning Musume (now under the name Morning Musume 17) has released lots of singles throughout their almost 20 year career. One of these is their 41st single called Kimagure Princess (Fickle Princess in English). For those of you that enjoyed reading about the group’s first official single Morning Coffee, this song is even better than that one! With that stated, here are some interesting facts about the song that is called Fickle Princess in English:

  • The single was released on October 28, 2009 and was the ending theme song for TV Tokyo’s show The Gyakuru Researchers.

Which members sing on the song Kimagure Princess?

Kimagure Princess features many famous Morning Musume members including Risa Niigaki and Ai Takahashi. Among the sixth generation members that are a part of this single are then band leader Sayumi Michishige, Eri Kamei, and Reina Tanaka. Michishige who had been with Morning Musume since 2003 graduated from the group following a concert in fall 2014. She has the longest tenure of any of the members, having surpassed Niigaki and Takahashi. Reina Tanaka graduated from Morning Musume on May 21, 2013 to concentrate on her band called Lovendor. The only sixth generation member who is not singing on this single is Miki Fujimoto who resigned in 2007 following reports that she was hanging out with her now husband Tomoharu Shoji.

What is the Song Kimagure Princess About?

What is this song about? It would not be enough if we did not address this part. The song is about a very beautiful princess that wakes up each morning feeling very irritated. She lives in a castle unable to have the life of a princess. She was involved in a one-sided love affair. This selfish princess is left in a very depressing situation. Even though she is described as a sexy princess, she also has a very reckless kind of buying habit. She goes online to do clothes shopping with no plans about how to spend her money wisely. As a result, when she sees the bill, she gets even more upset. Even if the story of the song is not so positive, the song itself is one of the best in the group’s career.

Kimagure Princess helped the group get more popular

Kimagure Princess has sort of a Spanish style beat to it in my opinion but it is one of the best songs in the history of Morning Musume and a great one to dance to and feel good. Kimagure Princess also features Aika Mitsui who released a solo photo book called Aika. Misui revealed at the end of 2013 that she is putting a stop to all of her entertainment work in order to study English abroad. Risa Niigaki graduated from Morning Musume on May 18, 2012 along with Mitsui and Michishige was given the title of band leader. Kimagure Princess will live on as one of the best songs ever written by any musical group. As part of their increasing popularity, Morning Musume was selected to take part in the Anime Expo Convention in July 2009. The event was in Los Angeles and Morning Musume was the guest of honor. The group held a concert and gave fans a chance to get autographs. The concert attracted a decent following of fans numbering over 7,000 people!
