30 Day Idol Challenge 13 ~AKB48 Member~

14 02 2012

Day thirteen of the 30 Day Idol Challenge/Idol Month is your favorite AKB48 member!

For a long while, my favorite member was Maeda Atsuko simply because I saw her face the most, she was prettier than the other girls, and it was easy to remember her name.  Mainly because I knew her name.  Slowly over the past year, however, I’ve begun to learn the names of a couple other girls.  I won’t lie, I still only know a select few of the regular top senbatsu girls, but with names comes personalities and new idols to favorite.

J-Round Up: IDOLING!!!, AKB+Friends, Kikkawa You, After School, Akanishi Jin

27 01 2012

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…?).
