Give them a blog!

March 23, 2009

This is in answer to a couple of search terms which have led people to my blog and I felt incredibly compelled to answer, because obviously i have no life:

Doesn’t takahashi ai have a blog? No, because Tsunku would have a fit. (I don’t really know the real reason……..maybe they don’t want you to realise how much they work..)

What songs are in akai ito drama? HY – 366 Nichi

Ah i love that drama…and the song… ❤ and the ending! ^_^

“Hate kat-tun?”
No, i don’t. 🙂

Ah! Their new album has been announced today on cdjapan/yesasia to be released on the 29th April! How exciting! 🙂 except on cdjapan the limited edition has sold out already. Ehhhhhhh?

Hmm..also…just as i was about to have a hissy fit that NEWS have disappeared completely, they have a single release, “Koi no ASBO”….i mean…”Koi no ABO” but i honestly say ASBO each time i read it….whoops. Anyway it looks like it actually comes with some exciting goodies!

Limited Edition: 12 page booklet
1) Koi no ABO
2) Labyrinth
3) Koi no ABO (Original Karaoke)
1) Happy Birthday
2) weeeek
3) Gangan Ganbatte
4) Hadashi no Cinderella Boy
6) MC

1) Koi no ABO
2) Labyrinth
3) Open Your Eyes
4) Share – Live at Tokyo Dome

And on the subject of blogs, the only ex-Morning Musume members i’m aware of which have blogs (Nono, Aibon, Yuko, Marippe, Makoto, Yasuda Kei, Gocchin had one for a bit too…) you can find most of them translated around the net.
But hey do you see a pattern here? No current members? Why not Tsunku? Surely it would make them more popular? I would like it if they had a shared blog, where they take turns writing in it 🙂  ah that would be amaaazing..yesh. Maybe even JunJun and LinLin, reporting on their life in Japan. I know whenever DBSK goes on a TV show they seem to find it amazing that they’re Korean and are speaking Japanese…but we don’t get that for Jun&Lin. Shouldn’t they be reporting on their life as ‘transfer’ members? Shouldn’t they actually be doing something?

Wow i completely didn’t expect that. Really unexpected. Exciting though. Even though i live pretty far away.
I guess this means that C-ute and Berryz Koubou won’t be going anywhere then?
But anyway..hmm…Stockholm…
I am going to try and persuade my brother to go there with me, if he says yes then i’ll probably go…if i can get it cheap! So far the flights are £50, the tickets are around £30?

So what’s Stockholm like? And how hard is Swedish to learn? o.O
If it isn’t going to be in England why isn’t it in Germany instead? At least then i can argue it will help with my German…haha..


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!


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”


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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
