Just to reassure you that this blog hasn’t been abandoned, a very quick reactions post to some recent happenings. I’m due to catch a monorail for Tokyo DisneySea in just a little while.
-Kanna scandal. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. Why do scandals break out every time I leave? If I really cared about Hello Project, I would never leave my computer, because bad things only happen when I’m not looking. Will she be okay? I mean, she’s probably the most dispensable member of C-ute (no offense to Kanna fans. I mean in terms of her role within the group and popularity level), but they seem to like the idea of C-ute and Berryz having the same number of members…
-Mysterious new Momusu song being sung at the end of the Wonderful Hearts concert. Is it a single? An album song? Whatever it is, I hope it’s a sign that Morning Musume will be releasing new music soon. And by soon, I mean like yesterday. It’s a very pretty song. Also, go LinLin! Her lines in the fan recordings are really impressive.
-New C-ute single/PV. Too happy over Chisato finally getting a chance to shine to care about how short it is. I’m in the camp that likes the costumes, even if Airi’s doesn’t really match.
-One of my friends who I’m traveling with has been living here for a year and finds herself more interested in Jpop after hearing so much of it. She even likes a handful of h!p songs especially Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance, Cinderella Complex, and the Genki Jirushii no Oomori song. Yay!
-New Koharu photobook. Uhmmmm… since when is Koha a dominatrix. Leather and fishnets? Really??
-Lookit what I found in a bookshop! Have I mentioned how much of a kick I get out of seeing pictures of my favorite idols/ occasionally hearing their songs playing?
Ug. I am so behind!
