Dear Maki Goto,

You’ve left Hello!Project behind. You’ve got a new manager, a contract with a real record label, and tens of thousands of fans had idolgasms just seeing cellphone camera pictures of your recent training trip to LA. You’re positioned to take over the world.

Could you at least pick up a decent dress on the way to the show?

I suppose you can be commended for picking something biodegradable, and the lack of feathers, rhinestones, and tulle confirms that you’ve left H!P behind for good, but, to be blunt, you are a smoking hot young woman wearing a burlap sack and clunky boots. An LBD and some nice pumps would have slain thousands.
