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)
– A DVD of “NEWS WINTER PARTY DIAMOND in TOKYO DOME 2008.12.31”
1) Happy Birthday
2) weeeek
3) Gangan Ganbatte
4) Hadashi no Cinderella Boy
5) SUMMER TIME
6) MC

Regular:
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?

KAT-TUN – Rescue

March 9, 2009

Omg the PV is amazing!

I reeeeally think KAT-TUN are one of the best Japanese bands out there, plainly because they get all the best songs (I’m more of a NEWS fan actually but they get worse releases and much less…where are they?!?)

If only they weren’t releasing a single the same time as Tohoshinki as i would be very tempted to buy it otherwise!
Speaking of that, i’m totally all for Tohoshinki winning the oricon battle…………….yet i believe it would proper piss KAT-TUN off to lose to foreigners lol.
But yeah, i really get the impression that Avex didn’t even bother trying with their ‘survivor’ single and PV.
I mean…KAT-TUN’s single, although i hate to admit it..leaves you with goosebumps! It really made me think of how much time and thought they must have put into the song and PV that it emphasises how little Tohoshinki did. I understand they release singles like every two months..but remind me again..why do they do that?

Ah….

I guess we’ll see on the 11th March……

Btw..i hope Berryz Koubou – Dakishimete Dakishitmete gets number three……..or even better..does amazingly well and beats them all by getting a number one 😉 now that would make me fall off my chair with surprise!

A catch up..

March 6, 2009

Haha am i psychic?
The weekly oricon ranking for Aragaki Yui’s “piece” issssssssss…number seven!
I’ve been so busy that i haven’t had chance to check any of the daily rankings, so i had no idea how well or bad it’s done. But for some strange reason it popped up in my dream, where it got a number seven of all numbers! Haha & when i was awake i was trying to convince myself that she would have obviously done better than that…but apparently not 😦
But then again does she actually do promotion? I never see her on all the other music programs the artists appear on? Who knows..

In other news, Morning Musume reached number 3 in the weekly charts last week for “Naichau Kamo!” I was hoping for a number 2, and they were sooo close behind (around 2000 copies between them and Acid Black Cherry who were at number 2) But at least this shows us that Morning Musume are still going pretty strong and they aren’t going anywhere! (hopefully) 🙂
They have another single scheduled already too. YAY!

Arihara Kanna from C-ute has been announced on the Hello!Project site to have hallux valgus and is on hiatus to spend time with her johnnys boyfriend recover. This means she won’t be taking part in their upcoming tour in April or their new single, “bye bye”
Ah i have a bad feeling about this? It’s really sad..get better soon! (Don’t worry i won’t make any bye bye puns…)

About the Tohoshinki VS KAT-TUN oricon ‘battle’………ahhhh all i can say is if you really love Tohoshinki, then buy their single ‘survivor’ as it’s possibly the only way that they will win! Even if it’s the only single you ever buy from them..i would love for them to beat KAT-TUN it would be amazing…
I have been thinking…are the fans of KAT-TUN also fans of Tohoshinki? Like is this a bit of a behind the scenes handshake, so that fans of KAT-TUN will think, “ah Tohoshinki? I may as well buy this too…” at the same time they’re buying KAT-TUN’s single, so that Tohoshinki’s sales will rise to the amounts johnny’s do?
But then again….i can imagine KAT-TUN/Johnny fans being proper loyal and not wanting to betray their beloved. Once again, who knows?
I still think that the Japanese music industry is really corrupted, but that’s another debate for another time…

Ai-chan’s drama beats Kamenashi’s!!

February 8, 2009

400px-kaminoshizuku  400px-qed-banner1

Yah you read that right! Here are the ratings for each episode so far… ^_^

Kami no Shizuku: 10.3  7.3  6.2  5.0
Q.E.D:           6.2  6.0  4.7   3.9  7.1

Which quite blatantly translates to:

Q.E.D —> Takahashi Ai —> Morning Musume
Kami no Shizuku —> Kamenashi Kazuya —> KAT-TUN
—> Morning Musume VS KAT-TUN
Winner = Morninggg Muuuuuuuuuuusume!

Which is quite a nice change from KAT-TUN’s usual conquering (or brainwashing…you pick) of outselling them by the hundreds of thousands on oricon chart…

(hahaha yes i know that it’s nothing like that…but it made me feel good for a bit!)
Ahhhhhhh……..i admit that Q.E.D has a much better storyline compared to Kami no Shizuku though. Just imagine if it was Kame who played the lead guy in Q.E.D instead….ah that would have been awesome.
Hmm actually i like KAT-TUN. I even bought one of their singles…well and downloaded the rest xD but i love their first and last albums!
I still find it absolutely hilarious how bad Kami no Shizuku is doing though! I haven’t watched it yet, but i will give the first episode a go maybe later..there’s so many good drama’s to watch this season that i keep forgetting which one’s i want to watch!
My list so far is:
Q.E.D
Love Shuffle
Voice
Mei-chan no Shitsuji
Kiino
Arifureta Kiseki Kami no Shizuku

I’ve thought about watching RESCUE…just for the fact it seems like it’d be absolutely hilarious! Actually i’ve just remembered Massu’s in it..i must watch it!
I’m already watching Akai Ito….which is very awesome. Ah i wish i had more time to watch all these dramas! I think if i were to live in Japan (at the moment i’m planning on going to live there next January/Feburary time for six monthsish if i decide to take a gap year..) i would have no social life as i would be watching a drama every night! xD
