Yume Miru 15sai Okai Chisato dance version

A few hours ago, another Okai Chisato dance video was uploaded on C-ute’s official youtube channel. However this time the video isn’t a C-ute song but a S/mileage song. A dance version of Yume Miru 15sai none other than C-ute’s Okai Chisato is awesome. It’s really cute how she choose this song over all the Hello! Project songs out there. I’m really looking forward to see another one soon.

Returning myself to the Hello! Project fandom!

Hey y’all. It’s been a while since I blogged about something. I actually tried a lot of time but I only end up not finishing those posts. But here’s a more serious one that I’m gonna post. Yes finally!

It’s been a while since I last got my head into any Hello! Project songs. Yes I am aware of the new releases and all but I never had and LSS on any Hello! Project song for quite some time now. Normally it’s been Big Bang, Taylor Swift, Camp Rock, Justin Beiber, and some old school OPM songs. But heck I still love Hello! Project the same way as before.

To start things of. Here’s one of my favorite Hello! Project groups Buono! with my favorite song from them, Kiss Kiss Kiss.

I still love this song no matter what. And Airi. Yes I never get tired loving her. She’s still my all time favorite. Like my Lebron James only on Hello! Project.

Speaking of Airi, have you seen her new Photobook. Well it’s just plain love. She looks so mature yet still a young lady.

Yes she’s sooo pretty I know. I love that red two piece on her (because red is my favorite color).

Okay so I found this two pics interesting. The top one is from the new photobook while the bottom one is from Ao Iro. I just find that the shirt they’re wearing are quite the same. Maybe different in color but it looks so so the same.

Yes I’m watching We are Buono! concert right now. Don’t be surprised. Yes I’ve been into Big Bang a lot since July but I never forgot them.

So as what I have heard. Momo and Eririn are going to release new photobooks soon. Eri’s PB entitled “Eririn” will be released on the 26th (next week). I think this is a must have photobooks for Eri’s fans since this is most likely her last one while still a member of Morning Musume.

Momo’s PB on the other hand will be release next month. It is entitled Momochi Zukan and it is due on October 20th. No previews has been released so far. But I gotta have my hands on this one since I’m a Momo fan.

Before I forget. Today is the 14th of September and it’s Morning Musume and Hello! Project’s one and only leader, Takahashi Ai’s birthday!

Happy 24th birthday Ai-chan.

So moving on. Two former Morning Musume members, namely Goto Maki and Aya Matsuura are going to released new albums soon. Aya Matsuura announced her album during  a recent Cotton Club concert. The album is set to release on 11/24

Goto Maki’s album has also been announced just recently. Though it has less details than the other one, everyone is still looking forward for it. The set release date is also on 11/24

Coincidence? Well this looks like a Morning Musume rivalry as I see it.

To make things a little weirder. Mano Erina’s 2nd Album still untitled is also set for release on the same date. 11/24

More Buono! coming.

Kataomoi is one of my favorite Buono! songs ever. It’s just so rockish and cool.

Oh yeah! S/mileage rank #9 on Music Station’s new artist that will breakout in the second half of the year. They were just beaten by artist such as Shoujou Jidai (SNSD) and Kara. Which are like Korean girl groups.

Well I guess that ends my Hello! Project fandom. Tune in tomorrow (or tonight whenever I feel like it) for my JPOP fandom to breakout.

Subbed, Tsunku’s announcement on JunLin and Kamei’s graduation.

OMG! This is so sad. You have to watch this. I can’t bear it at all. I still accept Kamei’s reason, that she wants her life to be better. But making JunLin graduate with the main reason as to pursue a career in China is pointless. They have already established a career in Japan, returning to China is so pointless. They could like promote as a duo or a soloist in China and be part of Morning Musume in Japan. It’s like Big Bang or Kara promoting in both Japan and Korea.

Well anyways, it’s already there and we can’t change the fact that by the end of this year Morning Musume will be a 5 nin group. Heck Berryz is bigger than them. Let’s just hope that the 9th gen audition will be turn out to be a fruitful one.

Kamei Eri, Junjun, and Linlin will graduate Morning Musume and H!P

Okay, I hate to break it to you but that’s the whole truth. Tsunku confirmed on his blog that 6th generation member Kamei Eri and 8th generation members Junjun and Linlin will graduate Morning Musume and H!P.

Kamei Eri has this serious skin condition ever since the start of the audition. According to Tsunku (for those who can’t read japanese), he himself looked for doctors who can cure or treat the condition. Unfortunately, the doctors consultation is that they should concentrate on the treatment first.

Junjun and Linlin sadly will return to China with reasons still unknown.

This was really a heartbreaking news for me since Kamei is in my top 3 in Morning Musume rankings and I consider Junjun and Linlin the future of Morning Musume (especially Linlin). I could take it if only one member will graduate. But three members plus 2 of my favorites has to go. So in less than a year 4 members has already graduated from Morning Musume alone. They’re gonna be miss.

Graduation will take place in the last day of Morning Musume’s Autumn 2010 tour.

Here’s a few performances to remember them

OMG! It feels like I just broke up with my girlfriend. This is so sad…

MajiBomber (live) + Little Clip of Promotion

A Cap of Captain. 😀

(click to enjoy bigger version. xD)

Captain

LQ Live version of live performance from UPFront. (C.C Lemon)

Promotion of MajiBomber at C.C.Lemon. (Music on Saturday 7/3/2010)

Saturday Night Live!

Another Saturday Night Live! Yes but I apologize for this week since there will be songs that aren’t in Live performance.

So the first two songs are from Naruto Shippuuden which is my recent obsession (yes more than H!P I Guess)

The first one is the last Naruto Shippuuden ending before the new one which debuted yesterday; Jitensha by Oreskaband

The other one is the opening for Naruto Shippuuden during the Hidan and Kakuzu arc.

Yes I missed A LOT of Naruto Shippuuden episodes and just decided to watch it again starting from the Hidan and Kakuzu arc which in my opinion is the second best arc in Naruto right now; only next to the Invasion of Pain arc which is the current arc in the anime.

Next is a song by 2AM which was released a couple of months ago. Yes I’m kinda late I know. But this song just recently hit me hard. Yeah I love this song and how Jo Kwon looks a little less gay. It’s their last single I Did Wrong.

Speaking of Jo Kwon looking Gay. Him dancing to SNSD’s Gee looks so GAY!

Next is something that never grows old with me. It’s F(x)’s NU ABO

Okay following up next is something that I instantly liked! It’s Super Junior’s new song No Other.

This song for me is actually better than Bonamana. It kinda reminded me of the old Super Junior which makes me miss the other 3 members. ]

And this week’s main event is none other than the guy who’s making HIS comeback this week. It’s Big bang’s own TAEYANG!

Sorry for my readers who are fans of H!P. It just that this week is mostly KPOP for me. Don’t worry next week for sure! :-bd

My Love for Hello! Project. A love that won’t die

Congratulations to me!! (yes me the Chief Editor and one of the 3 active members of jkmusicph) It’s my first anniversary since I started getting hooked on Hello! Project. Though it’s not exactly the 11th of May, it’s actually earlier. But I consider the 11th of May as my anniversary because it’s the date that I joined Hello! Online. And also around this time. I know more groups other than Buono! and Shugo Chara Egg.

So like all of the other bloggers out there who celebrate their anniversary. I’ll share my life story on how I got hooked on Hello! Project

Well it started with this group known as Buono! It was around March that I started watching again anime. Actually before that I was already listening to jpop such as Arashi (because of me getting hooked to HYD) and some more anime songs. But then while I was browsing crunchyroll. I saw this cute and funny anime, Shugo Chara. So I decided to watch it. The opening back then was Buono!’s Kokoro no Tamago. But at the very first episode, I didn’t care about the opening and ending which was Honto no Jibun . Then, crunchyroll has this thing if you’re not member, which I’m not. So I browsed youtube if I could find any more episodes of Shugo Chara. Sadly, I didn’t find any. But I found Buono!’s PV for Kokoro no Tamago

This got me interested with them. So I googled Buono!. And I found their wikipedia page. I was shocked when I saw that they were so young. Momo and Miya are a year older than me and Airi was a year younger than me (actually 9 months younger). Then I clicked the members own wikipedia page and I saw that they are with other groups other than Buono! I saw that Miya and Airi were in Aa! Miya and Momo were with Berryz Kobo. And Airi is with C-ute.

My favorite member back then was Momo. She was that cute and a natural Idol. I actually didn’t liked Airi at first because she has this weird dent on her teeth. Well before we go to how I liked Airi. Let’s go first to my first favorite Momo. So after searching Buono! on google. I started youtubing their songs. If I could remember correctly, the two songs that really caught me was Rottara Rottara, Kiss Kiss Kiss, and Renai Rider

My favorite back then was Renai Rider. But as time passes it also changed.

Well then, after Buono! I got hooked with Berryz Kobo. If I remember correctly. It was because I searched Momo a lot. So I searched Berryz Kobo on Youtube and the first thing that came to me was Berryz Kobo’s Madayade.

Madayade is an interesting song. I really liked it. But that time I didn’t bother to know each members because they were like 7 in the group. But after sometime and more songs. I get to know each members. It took some time for me. But eventually I got it. (wait till we get to Morning Musume).

Here’s another Berryz song that I really liked before.

And my all time favorite Berryz Kobo song.

~If you’re wondering how I remember all this. I’m checking out my old blog Hybridpunch (yes named after Buono!’s first concert).Which will be deleted shortly after this post.

I really loved this concert. It was the first concert that I downloaded on Hello! Online’s Torrent.

So let’s go to my favorite Hello! Project member Airi

So after BK. I went to C-ute. After Momo, I found Airi cuter for some unknown reasons (maybe she’s meant for me) Kidding. So I googled C-ute and I found out that their highest selling single then was Tokkaiko Junjou (just for everyone’s knowledge, C-ute’s highest selling single now is Everyday Zekkouchou).

So I really liked Tokkaiko Junjou a lot. It lived it’s expectations. So after it, I searched a lot more C-ute songs which I don’t remember which came in first. But I’m pretty sure one of the first were Bye Bye Bye, Forever Love, and Meguru Koi no Kisetsu.

So, unlike BK. It didn’t took me sometime to get to know them. I already knew Airi, Maimi is the leader with the long hair, Erika is the oldest, Kanna came from H!P Egg, Chisa is the tomboyish looking girl (before), Mai is the youngest, and Nakky is a younger version of Maimi (that’s how I think it works before).

So It seems that Hello! Project kids were the first H!P members that I knew.

Before we go to Morning Musume. I also want to share to you another group that I first learned Shugo Chara Egg.

and a soloist who goes by the name of Mano Erina

Actually before, ManoEri was one of my favorite in Hello! Project. She’s like 3rd after Airi and Momo. But eventually I got hooked in to more of H!P she went down until she’s no longer in my top 10. Though, she’s in my top 10 most beautiful Hello! Project members.


Let’s now go know to Morning Musume

How I got in to Morning Musume is still a mystery to me. I don’t actually know why and how. But what I’m sure about is that I saw their last #1 single, Shouganai Yume Oibito. I didn’t liked it at first because it wasn’t Buono!~ish or C-ute~ish. It sounded different. So I ignored them and went to my normal routine of C-ute (yes I got so addicted to C-ute after that). But then while searching some more videos of Shugo Chara on the internet. I luckily found one. And if I’m not mistaken. There was this person asking for some suggestions of anime like Shugo Chara. And someone replied to that person and suggested Kirarin Revolution. So I googled it (yes google is reliable) and found that the opening them was sung by another Hello! Project member, Koharu Kusumi. So I searched for  Koharu Kusumi. Then after that I learned she was a member of that group that I didn’t liked Morning Musume.

This I remember clearly. I searched Koharu Kusumi on youtube and the very first video that I saw from her is her performance of Hapi Hapi Sunday.

So I got interested with her, the I searched for Morning Musume again. I got lazy the moment I saw them because they were a lot. Though they were only 9 members at that time. It was still a lot for a group. So there were a lot of songs. And I mean a lot.

Though I mentioned that I didn’t liked the song before, after constant hearing and after downloading the song. I got hooked to it finally.

So that’s how I got in to Morning Musume. How I get to memorize them is also a mystery for me. The current line-up is no problem for me. But the whole Morning Musume. Yeah I know them all but I don’t quite remember How. What I’m sure about is only two members. Kago Ai and Tsuji Nozomi.

I learned about Kago Ai because there was this time were I thought that, “Do Hello! Project girls get in to scandals”. So I googled (yes ol’ reliable) Hello! Project Scandals, and the very first one that came out was Kago Ai’s smoking scandal back then. I was shocked when I read this especially the fact that Kago was about 16~17 when she did this. So I went to Kago’s Wiki page and saw that she’s a member of Morning Musume as well as Mini Moni and W. I don’t know which came first, if it’s Mini Moni or W. But I both loved those groups.

So now I remember how I learned all of the members of Morning Musume. It was their sub-groups and by singles. Since members constantly changed since the creation for every single except for Mikan until Kimagure Princess. I tried learning each members by the single. And if I’m not mistaken one of the first singles that I tried learning to was Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Bang~. In this single, I learned everything about Yoshizawa Hitomi….

Okay so after that I can’t remember anything on what singles I learned about the other members. I learned about Yaguchi Mari because H!O constantly post blog translations from her. Other members… hmm… okay no idea. But I think you get the whole point on my Hello! Project beginnings.

So I think that’s It. If you read this Thank You for patiently reading through all this.

Now wasn’t that a long story

and here’s one of my favorite Suzuki Airi pics. \m/
