Morning Musume Concert Tour 2008 Aki – Resonant Live – A reflection..

February 3, 2009

My first thoughts when watching this tour were:
1) Heyyy more belly showing than usual?
2) Ehhh have they got…more slutty?
3) Wow Eri has really improved! Like really really!
4) Risa has been given some center positions..hold on…it’s not all Ai and Reina?
5) LinLin has bigger cheers than aika? =O
6) Wait…i actually like LinLin?

I swear i was pouting all throughout the concert. Hmm i could go on but i’ll stop there! xD I think if i were to sum this tour up in one word it would be ‘FANSERVICE!’
Arghhhhhhhhh seriously! I’ll explain this using the method which has been forever drummed into me in english – ‘groups of three’ lol (did they ever just think that once they
got to three, they just got bored and didn’t want to add more points?!)

1) Look at the way Ai-chan looks at Koharu. I mean isn’t Koharu like what..13…15? (i can’t be bothered to look it up….okay i did she’s 16 lol) and i think what’s even more hilarious is the face Koharu’s pulling haha SHE LOOKS TERRIFIED! Tsunkuuuuuuuu…

Am i looking too deep into this? Well……..

2) The whole performance of “Take Off Is Now.” I think it was a good performance, as i really like the song…but watching it just made me feel uncomfortable! I’m sure if i were a guy i wouldn’t be..but as i am a girl who is completely straight..watching girls trying to be sexy just makes me cringe! It’s a shame, because i’m not entirely convinced that they really want to act like that. Even Reina. Actually wait, Reina does. (see next point..)

3) Reina. Ahhhh but then again Reina is always like this. I mean Reina..why do you need to do that, what are you expecting?

I found it hilarious that Koharu looked as if she was giving birth throughout “Koi No Dial 6700” as you can see in the picture below.
And once again you can also see Reina sticking her arse out…in fact…..i’m not really sure what she’s doing………

Tbh there was a lot of ‘bum sticking out’ movements from everyone in this concert. Even Risa…ah speaking of Risa..i think even she can’t help but look at Reina’s bum!

risa-staring

I don’t think i’m gonna even start and go into detail of their performance of “Purple Wind.” Let’s just pretend it’s nice and innocent like they used to be. I don’t know why i don’t like morning musume being like this. They’ve been like this for a while after all. There are plently of bands worse than them as well.
Anyway, i don’t know if i’ve got my point across well..there are other examples, but that would mean watching the whole concert again and although i have been watching it daily for the last few days now, the one time i need to watch it…i don’t want to 😀 haha if i see anything else worth mentioning, then i’ll add it.

I wonder if i am the only one who thinks that Reina’s voice just gets worse and worse? It’s awful sometimes! To the point i would say sayumi sounds better..sometimes! 😉

Anyway i’m really glad at how Eri and Risa have been given much more time to shine 🙂 I think because we suddenly get to see two new people put in the spolight, it makes Reina and Ai-chan seem more boring..and predictable? Is that just me?

Oh yeah, don’t you think LinLin really looks like Inoue Mao? (from hana yori dango)

Creepy! I think it’s the same face shape and smile. LinLin has definately grown on me actually. I think it’s because she looks less manly than i first thought and i can see that she’s actually pretty! Silly me for not noticing it earlier! Actually Aika is really pretty. She looks so much better with her current hair! Well done hairstylist! *claps* back to LinLin though..i feel she really fits in well with Morning Musume, so i can see what Tsunku was doing when he picked her! I feel more sorry for JunJun though as there are parts where i can see how she looks so tired. I mean..Morning Musume showing fatigue? That’s against all the rules! 😉
Heh i think it’s mean making JunJun be the only one to wear trousers (unless she picked them of course) But i swear they always make the tall members wear the trousers..and it just..i dunno..doesn’t it just make them look taller? O.o

Ah in fact i think this concert…is a concert of growth! Koharu’s voice is actually alright! They’ve all improved vocally…well done takakajadnbs..takarazuka? people from cinderella!!! I feel sorry for Sayumi though as she doesn’t get as many vocal parts as the other 5/6th gens..i mean when she gets a solo which is longer than one line, i’m always surprised that she’s allowed to sing one!

I think to end this…erm reflection, i’ll leave you with the constipated face of LinLin during “Resonant Blue”

linlinconstipated

I swear she was smiling throughout it as well. I mean talk about inappropriate! With lyrics like “resonant sadness echoes deep inside me” it’s not exactly something to smile about!
Though to be honest…..if i were in Morning Musume, i would be so happy, i would never stop smiling!

Ah maybe i should end this with saying that although i am an overly critical skeptic ~ morning musume ga daisuki desu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today some more tracks have leaked, my favourite being: ‘Dou ni mo Tomaranai’

Wow i remember somebody saying Eri was ‘fierce’ and i think this video just about proves it! If i were a guy……..

…After hearing how good that was I am really looking forward to Koi no Dial 6700!! It’s probably my favourite song off their ‘Cover You’ album. I love Eri’s “anata ga suki” lines. In fact i feel that Eri’s voice has improved soso much! Actually, all of their voices have improved a lot over the past year (well except Reina’s maybe) which i guess is Morning Musume’s charm ^_^ the fact that there is always room for improvement so you can watch them grow and feel more proud of them, i guess as opposed to a band for example, Tohoshinki, who were already amazing at the start (ohhh i am biased) so i guess it takes a lot more for them to impress you each time.
So yeah, to sum this up, i can’t wait until it comes out!!! 😀

You can buy the concert here at yesasia or here at CDJapan. You could probably buy it from other places, but they’re the only places i have experience with! 🙂
