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…

Hello!Project 2010 Winter Kachou Fuugetsu -Shuffle Date!!-

We have waited for so long to watch the Winter Concert of our ‘idols’ in Hello! Project and now I have good news. 😀

Our wait and patience has not gone to waste and our prize:

Watch H!P 2010 Winter Concert -Shuffle Date-

All I could say – even though I haven’t finished watching the concert – is that I like their shuffle groups especially High-King. ❤

When they have shuffle groups, it gives the others chance to shine in a song or in a group. Though some groups still have some spotlight on one or two people, shuffle groups are good. 😀

Now, let me share one video with our lovely Ai, Eri & (Captain) Saki.

Even though Captain has little lines here, she plays a major role in doing those sound effects and those (lovely) second voices.

And look how wonderful these three are with each other. Just wonderful.

More 10 My Me Previews

We posted before a track preview of Morning Musume’s soon to be released album “10 My Me” which is “Genki Pikka Pikka” .

So more radio rips have been released and here they are

Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou (Chinese Version)

Not the same song performed at the last Morning Musume concert. This one is a duet between 8th gen member Junjun and Linlin. This actually has very small difference between the last one from Platinum 9. This song has a guitar intro in it rather than a piano intro. But through the middle of the song, it’s actually the same.

This song in my honest opinion, is better than that of Ice Creamusume since it features Linlin and Junjun two of the powerhouse vocals of Morning Musume.

Ano Hi ni Modoritai

A ballad type R&B song by Morning Musume’s leader and sub leader Takahashi Ai and Niigaki Risa. Much like Take of is now (without Reina) the song is such a nice one to listen to. It also reminds me a High King song. With these 2 in one song, you’ll sure love this one

Osaka Oshiinen

An upbeat track by 8th gen members Aika Mitsui, Junjun, and Linlin. When I first read the title, I thought this could be a fun song like Kanjani8’s Sukiyanen Osaka. This could easily replace Guru Guru Jump from the last album. The vocals are awesome, I even thought that Niigaki is in this song.

Moonlight ~Tsukiyo no ban da yo~

Sequel to Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big band~? I don’t think so. It’s a different song. Not my favorite in the album, but it’s worth the listen.

Namidachhi

This was the song that I’ve been looking for. It kinda sounds like C-ute’s Shigatsu Sengen. But that’s only in the part of Namidachhi. I actually like this song. It’s fun to listen to in the middle. I wonder how they’ll perform this in concert. It seems like an ending song to me.

Ooki Hitomi

Yoshizawa Hitomi? haha no! This is the 6th gen song, that means it features Sayu, Reina, and Eri. It’s an upbeat song, much like that of the 8th gen. One of my favorite tracks in the album maybe because of Reina and Erti (my favorite). But Sayu is perfect in this kind of songs too.

Loving You Forever

Okay so If I told you Namidachhi is a perfect ending song, I stand corrected. This one is better (note: I’m doing this blog impromptu so it means I haven’t got to listen to the tracks before). I instantly LOVE this song. A ballad song. Each member gets a solo line which made me extra happier. This should have a PV! OMG! this is like the best song in the album for me

Had enough of the previews?

Don’t forget to Buy Morning Musume’s album next week 3/17.

~If  Koharu didn’t leave Morning Musume, does that mean she gets a solo song in this album? That would be awesome.

Does this one needs any explanations?

BUT I SWEAR GAKI-SAN looks a lot like Yoshizawa Hitomi!

Furusato [Nine Smile Concert 2009]

The performance right after Koharu Kusumi announced about her graduation and the messages of the members to her.

I miss Koharu.. *cries*
