A Power Couple is Born

10 02 2012

A couple days ago it was reported that ex-KAT-TUN member Akanishi Jin was dating actress-turned-frickin-awesome-singer Kuroki Meisa.  Whatever, these rumors happen all the time.  I thought it would be really cool if they dated because they are equally drop dead goreous.  “Why, what a sexy couple that would be,” thought I.

Ohoho.  Its not a rumor.  Hell, they even got married a week ago.  You know what low-profile shotgun weddings mean, don’t you??

Baby time.  Good Lord, that is going to be one hell of a gorgeous child.  It couldn’t have picked better chromosomes.  Lucky shit.

I couldn’t care less about Jin’s career; he’s a self-righteous asshole.  In fact, he’s kind of a partying womanizer, so I’m really surprised he’s being responsible and settling down and marrying Meisa.

I am a little sad for Meisa’s career.  I know the Tokyograph article above says that she plans to continue her career, but she’s still out for the count for a while.  This will effect her much longer than Jin, considering she’s got at least another half a year with a belly and no performing, and maybe longer on maternity leave.  I generally really, really enjoy her music, so it’ll be a shame to go so long without it.

I fully expect either wedding photos or a magazine spread with this couple.  And/or the baby when it’s born.

I’ve been wanting to review a lot of the latest releases.  Unfortunately, a lot of them aren’t new anymore, but here are the latest one’s I’ve been looking at.  I’m going to hold fast to my resolution to expand my horizons, so today I’m breaking down my barrier and reviewing IDOLING!!! for the first time.  I’m sorry I can’t provide you guys with the actual PVs or lives for most of these; we all know Japanese labels are insane with copyright (although last time I checked, wasn’t the point of a promotional video to promote…?).
