30 Day Idol Challenge 18 ~Favorite Concert~

19 02 2012

The eighteenth day of the 30 Day Idol Challenge is your favorite idol concert.  Ah, yes!  Another easy no-brainer.

This has been my favorite concert for years.  It was the first and best I’ve ever seen.  I own the DVD of it and sadly, I watch it quite frequently.  It got me into idols and Hello! Project.  If you read my last post, you probably know exactly what concert this is by now.  It’s…

TOP! Part 8 – Hello! Project Singles

20 01 2012

Okay, this was hard.  Really, really hard.  I don’t think I realized what I was getting into when I decided to do this next installation of my TOP! series.  For those of you who are new to my blog, TOP! is my series of countdowns of favorites.  There’s a page in the menu bar with previous TOP! posts.

Today I bring you my personal top 25 Hello! Project singles.  No, really, that was the smallest number I could muster.  There’s just as many honorable mentions.

Hello! Project Round-Up: PyocoPyoco, Chotomatte, DEEP MIND, and Shining Butterfly

15 01 2012

A few H!P PVs have been released lately (okay, a couple of these are old, but I’ve been wanting to review them), and to save you clicks and me time, I’m rounding them all up into one post.  Remember, I already warned you that my patience with H!P is gone.

Morning Musume – Pyocopyoco Ultra

When I heard the radio rip for this song, I actually really liked it.  It’s really catchy on it’s own and it showcases the new members, which although isn’t great yet, it’s smart on Tsunku’s part.  If all of the lines are given to Reina or Mame, then it’ll be a PAIN once they graduate (such as, I can imagine, it is now divvying up all of Ai’s parts).

Then the covers and group concept pictures were released.

Then the MV.

Can I emphasize how much I have been disappointed with Morning Musume lately?  Leave it to Tsunku to take a perfectly good song and fuck duck it up.  To save an incredibly long rant, here’s the one good thing about this PV: Gakisan.  She really, really shines among the rest.  And I really love that her costume is different, it really shows that she’s the queen duck.  Otherwise, yeah.  There’s nothing good about this PV.  It makes me sick to my stomach.  I’ve tried about 5 times and I still cannot watch it all the way through.

Tsunku, little girls are already fans of Morning Musume.  They will listen anyway.  Especially since you’re adding kindergartners to the group.  You need to be targetting the market that is leaning to AKB: young adults and the older male fans.  You used to do it, and it worked really, really well.  Don’t know why that’s changed, but he is really throwing a great group down the tubes.  Just because the new members are young doesn’t mean they have to be dancing in duck outfits.  Seriously.

It’s Over

7 12 2009

I can’t believe it really happened… I didn’t want it to be real.  I think all of the H!P fandom was waiting for this day to role around and at the final NINE SMILE concert for Koharu to come out and say “Just kidding~” and we’d all laugh and think “Man, they really got us this time.  Haha!”

Woah woah woah. What?

koharu

It was just announced that Morning Musume 7th Generation member Kusumi Koharu would be graduating both MoMusume and Hello! Project.  While I’ve never been a huge fan of hers, she’s one of the most popular MoMusu girls, so I do believe I can safely say that not only I, but the majority of the H!P fan community are in shock right now.
