2009 Predictions

31 12 2008

Well, it’s almost New Year’s Eve, so I figure it’s time to do the predictions for next year.  These are mostly H!P-based, but I’m going to venture to other idols this year too.

Kamo!

31 12 2008

The radio preview for Morning Musume’s 38th single, Nai Chau Kamo, just surfaced this morning.  And holy shit.  It’s so epic.

JE Best 08 (My Answers)

31 12 2008

Best!

-Best Group (Debuted)

KAT-TUN.  They were really hot this year…

-Best Group (Jrs)

Kis-my-ft2.  I dislike the majority of A.B.C.-Z, unfortunately, and I hardly know any of the little ones. 

-Best Overall Soloist (this can be a member of a group doing a solo single or song)

Imai Tsubasa ❤  Or Akanishi Jin (with LOVEJUICE… *cough*)

-Best Idol (Debuted)

Yamashita Tomohisa.  With his drama and overall performance… *drool*

-Best Idol (Jrs)

Hashimoto Ryosuke!  This was really good year for him.  I just wish he’d debut.  D:

-Best Single

KAT-TUN’s Don’t U Ever Stop.  With a whopping seven songs, it should pretty much be an album, but it was amazing.  I loved all their solos.

-Best Song (Debuted)

Since I’ve been waiting and waiting for it to be released on an album, I have to say NEWS’s Snow Express because it FINALLY came out on an album~~  After TWO years!

-Best Song (Jrs)

Kis-my-ft2’s FIRE BEAT (jkajdlsakjdlka so amazing) or A.B.C.-Z’s Crush (which is really addictive)

-Best Album

I was going to pick Queen of Pirates.  And then tonight I finally downloaded color.  And holy shit.  It’s so AMAZING.  So NEWS’s color hands effing down.  Not even any competition.

-Best Concert (both debuted and jrs)

I liked NEWS’s pacific the best personally, but then again, I never saw the Ebikisu (A.B.C.-Z/Kis-my-ft2) concert.

-Best PV

KAT-TUN’s Don’t U Ever Stop because of the story or ARASHI’s truth because.  Omg.  truth.

-Best Choreography (I couldn’t resist since JE dances are so epic =D)

ARASHI’s truth.  Yesssss.  I thought NEWS’s Happy Birthday was pretty cute, too.

-Sexiest Idol (must be legal to call sexy– 18+)

Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo (and Akanishi Jin kthxbai)

-Cutest Idol (minors–under 18)

I have to say Hashimoto Ryosuke.  Have to.  I thought Tanaka Juri had a pretty good… end of the year… too.





Johnny’s Entertainment Best of 08 Survey

28 12 2008

Since there’s a Hello! Project Best of 08 survey (here), it’s only right to have one for its male counterpart, Johnny’s Entertainment!  And since they’re underloved in the Jpop blogosphere, I’d like to know what you all think~  You can either post these to your blogs and send me the link in a comment or email them to me (tsuki[at]nekohimenaoko[dot]com).  And make sure to note if you don’t want a link to it posted here!

Re: H!P Best of 2008 Poll (Merry Go Round)

28 12 2008

I fail at creative titles.  This is a response to Amy (Merry Go Round)’s “poll” (more like survey) for the end of the year!

Bests

Best Group Single

-High-King’s C\C (Cinderella\Complex), no doubt.  That single was so so so much epic win.  Close in second place is Morning Musume’s Resonant Blue.

Jin Disses Obama

26 12 2008

Apparently KAT-TUN’s Akanishi Jin isn’t a huge fan of American President-Elect Barack Obama.

(They’re doing a factory skit for the White X’Mas making of.  Junno is the American advisor, Koki is the factory owner, Kame’s his dad, Ueda’s the advisor, and Jin’s… selling the factory I guess.  Not sure what he is.  Or Maru.  )

Junno: I’ll call my network over in America.

Nakamaru: Yes, please.

Junno: Clinton…

Jin: No good!

Junno: Obama…

Jin: That’s no good for many reasons!

Kame: Apparently he’s not from America.

… I no longer love you Jin.





Looking Back on ’08

23 12 2008

Two days from now it’ll be exactly a year since I did my Hello! Project 2008 predictions.  It seems like so long ago!  Now that this year’s almost over, it’s time to reflect and see what came true!
