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.

Suddenly Sentimental

4 08 2009

You know, when this lineup of Musumes first started, I really rather disliked them.  My two favorite members had up and left out of nowhere and two Chinese girls were brought in in their place.  I didn’t particularly like anyone in the group.  I hated the leader with a fiery passion and was convinced that she would destroy Morning Musume for good.

But having these nine girls together for the past two and a half years without any change has really altered my views of them.

I Bring Good News!

12 01 2009

Well, it might be good news.  I’m not really sure what’s going to happen with them, but in April, 4 brand new fanclubs will begin under UFA.

The first will be, of course, Hello! Project (which depressingly will only consist of Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, C-ute, and Mano Erina… but wait! Where are the eggs?!)

The second is (and this is the hopefully good part) what will be called M-Line, aka Elder Club minus a few.  This will consist of Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori (wut?), Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari (!), Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Konno Asami (!), Ogawa Makoto (!), Fujimoto Miki, Tsuji Nozomi (!!@!), and Ongaku Gatas  (Satoda Mai?, Noto Arisa, Sengoku Minami, Korenaga Miki, and Sawada Yuri).  I think this means a new concert unit, which is really exciting and I would be super super excited if all these artists started releasing music.  So happy.  I would probably explode if I saw a Yaguchi Mari solo single.

The third is Ayaway, a fanclub for Matsuura Aya, which is both good and bad.  Good because she won’t die.  Bad because a) I was hoping she’d switch to Avex, b) she probably won’t be perfoming with M-Line, which is boo, and c) she’ll probably still get boring music.  D:

The fourth and final is probably the funniest of them all.  And yes, that’s just me being a jerk.  But it’s a Melon Kinenbi fanclub called… *chuckle* Melon Kinenbi.  MAN.  These people are full of brilliant ideas for MKB.  Honestly, I can see like… 1,00 people joining this.  At max.  If that, even.

Overall, YAY more Elder Club!  I just hope they actually do something!  The only super disappointing thing here is… where’s Erika and Yui?

Best Live. Evar.

20 11 2008

I love Korean Award Show performances.  Everyone performs with everyone else and it consitently kicks ass.  This particular one had me screaming and I have to admit it must be the best live I’ve ever seen from Korea. It’s Lee Hyori feat. BIG BANG.  I was getting excited just seeing that.

Hangry & Angry…?

12 10 2008

Um.  So Ishikawa Rika and Yoshizawa Hitomi have formed a new Hello! Project unit… called Hangry & Angry… and it’s gothic-lolita… Umm…

I think I’m just about the only person who thinks this is really weird and a totally bad idea.

The Musume in America Experiment: Part 1

28 01 2008

Based on what Kuri of Morning! Kuri did with her younger sister (tested Momusu on her), I decided to try out a similar experiment. I tested the big three in H!P right now on my [soon to be] step-sister. She’s your typical teenage girl, 15, and a freshman in highschool. The only thing not so normal is that she’s a pretty strong Christian. Based on that, I thought that she would probably be less inclined to see girls dancing around in hardly anything singing about the hardships of love. But I was wrong. Ooooh so so so wrong.
