C-ute – Edo No Temari Uta II PV

Posted in C-ute, Downloads with tags , , , , on July 27, 2008 by kaorublade

It’s me, finally start to write again:-).

It’s about 2 minutes ago and I just finished watching C-ute latest PV, Edo no Temari Uta II.

I didn’t really expect C-ute’s new song to be like this actually. But, I like it so much, it even made me want to write something again!XD.

That’s just how excited I am:p!

First of all, this PV reminds me of Miyavi‘s Concert Set and maybe some of his PV. I mean, that It has all of that cool Japanese vibe in it and it shows itself even more within the dance and the song, very nice indeed.

Second, I just can’t resist Airi’s hot and sexiness(forgive me for using this word, I just can’t help it>.< and she’s just only 14 years old T_T). That hairstyle, that outfit, that mini skirt, and obviously that smile:). Oohh, Thanks God for this beautiful Gift(Again, please forgive this blabbering of mine!T_T).

I think that this single is going to be another hit for C-ute after Tokkaiko Junjou, seeing the uniqueness of this song and PV and I hope my best for it to happen.

Natsuyaki Miyabi ~Another talent engulfed in a flame of scandal~

Posted in Natsuyaki Miyabi with tags , , , , on June 5, 2008 by kaorublade


Maybe many of you have already heard of this.

It’s about Miyabi or someone who resembles her(I hope?) and her boyfriend caught in a videos,

Maybe it’s not right to say “caught”. Because, I don’t think that it’s a coincidence at all, the footage was taken in separate days and time. So, It’s probably done by stalkers or the press who followed them.

As far as I tried to deny it, the pictures and videos just resembles her too much.

Miyabi is one of my favorite in Berryz Kobou and Buono! and this news or rumor of scandal really makes me sad. not because the boyfriend. But, the fact that Miyabi’s place in Hello! Project may disappear because of this.

It’s really a pity, if that happened .

Be strong Miyabi 😦 !

Buono! – Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

Posted in Buono with tags , , , , , , on May 19, 2008 by kaorublade

That’s it! Buono is definitely my favourite unit in H!P right now and this PV has a lot of contribution to that.

This PV is my favorite from all Buono’s PV. All the girls, that includes Airi, Miyabi, and Momoko are really adorable with all the outfit and the dance.

Even by saying that, I still can’t take my eyes of Airi and in the end I think I spent all of my time watching Airi who looks so cute in her outfit. My favorite part is the hat and it suits her very well:).

The song is really good and it’s fun to listen to. Although, I don’t think it’s better than Renai Rider! which I think will still be my favorite Buono’s song. But, I think I just need to listen to Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!(KKK) a lot more.

Itadakimasu!!!:)

Ayaka ~Coconut Musume~ is to Graduate from H!P

Posted in Ayaka Kimura(Coconuts Musume) with tags , on April 30, 2008 by kaorublade

Finally the day comes for Ayaka to graduate from Hello! Project and that is today on April 30th, 2008.

How many years had passed since the first time I saw Ayaka in her show “Ayaka’s Surprise English Lesson”. Maybe some of you have already watched it too, the show that intended to tells us how bad Morning Musume member’s English were (At least that’s what I get when I watched it lol). The show really gave me a lot of laugh. Go and watch it if you haven’t yet lol!!

For the past few years. Ayaka never really got any real breakthrough, she just became a regular member in Hello! Project concert without any new material, Ayaka became one of many elder member of H!P who didn’t get any new recording project. Maybe that’s the reason why she decided to close the contract with H!P, because H!P is really holding her back and personally, I think that she won’t get anywhere by staying in H!P. Seeing that H!P only care about their fresh unit such as, C-ute or Berryz Kobou.

Ayaka is a really close friend with Yoshizawa Hitomi and Satoda Mai. I hope it’s not going to get lonely for Yossi and Mai:(.

As for me, it’s a good decision for Ayaka, she could shape her career freely from now . I wish her all the best!! Ganbatte Ayaka! 🙂

Ayaka Kimura (木村 絢香 born October 30, 1981 in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan) joined Hello! Project in 1999 after being discovered by Makoto, fellow Sharan Q bandmate of Tsunku, with four other girls, forming Coconuts Musume. Out of the original line up of Coconuts Musume and the second generation addition of Lehua Sandbo, she is the leader and last remaining member of the group. Having lived most of her teenage years in Hawaiʻi, Ayaka is fluent in both Japanese and English. She is best known by foreign fans for her “Ayaka no Totsugeki Eikaiwa (Ayaka’s Surprise English Lessons)” TV segment, where she would test the English skills of Morning Musume members

I’m Back and So are They….

Posted in Fujimoto Miki, Goto Maki, Kago Ai, X Japan with tags , , , on April 11, 2008 by kaorublade

It’s been a while guys. when I checked the last time, this kaorublade’s weblog just got to more than 10.000 views. Thanks for visiting my website through all the time that I was absent. Your attention is something that keeps me going.

I’m still working on my thesis, maybe for another two months, it’s still going to be my number one priority.

Many things have happened in Japanese entertainment industry, including the most phenomenal one , that is X-Japan is back in business.

There is another story, such as the returns of Kago Ai, Goto Maki, Fujimoto Miki. I’m really happy that they are able to overcome many things, that I’m sure had changed them mentally and professionally.

Kago Ai just made an interview in a japanese site, ohmynews.co.jp. She talks about her smoking habit, her boyfriend, and her suicide attempt after the incident. I really admire her bravery to come forward and told us about these. It’s another side of Kago Ai we have never seen in Hello! Project or Morning Musume.

About the past scandal of Kago Ai. She is smoking?? She had a boyfriend?? so what…I never really care about it. I really like Kago Ai, her personality is really interesting and her scandal doesn’t change my opinion about her, she is still a great girl. I will support her and I hope many fans will support her too.

Another one is Goto Maki, she is definitely a talent and undeniably a great idol. She got all the looks and her voice is one of the best in Japan. Just a while ago, she closed her contract with Hello! Project or what the agency said a “graduation”.

It’s a shocking news, the first time I heard it, I thought that I haven’t seen the best of Goto Maki yet and it’s such a waste to end it this way. But, recently she reported on her blog about her activity in Los Angeles, USA and it seems that she is preparing for her come back. There is some rumor that Gomaki is now singing for the AVEX company, a company for singer likes Ayumi Hamasaki, YUI, and Otsuka Ai. If it’s true than we can hope for some quality music coming out from them. Whatever company she is in, I hope she can sings in a much better form than before.

Last from the world of Hello! Project is Fujimoto Miki. The record holder for the shortest leader of Morning Musume. Until now her unique voice is one that I considered to be the best in Hello! Project, so when she decided to quit morning musume, it’s been in my thought, what would become of morning musume. Well, there has been a low sales in their latest single Mikan. But, that is another story.

Mikitty(Fujimoto’s nick name) has her new single “Oki Tegami” just waiting to be released and she just recently played in a stage play titled “Hakana“. She is currently rebuilding everybody’s trust, especially her fans. Ganbare Mikitty!!

Thanks to everyone at hello-online.org especially the torrent uploader missing-. Finally, I got the 3rd Photo book of Yossi(Yoshizawa Hitomi), Hello! Yossy.

This 3rd Photo Book of her is very hard to find and I was thinking about how bad it could be, so no one ever thought of buying it>.<.

I am glad though that this PB is not a disappointment at all^^.

Ongaku Gatas really strikes from the first song, Dakishimite…Namida is a great song and has made its place in one of my favourite Gatas’s song, not only that, the song also tells us what kind of sounds that the whole album will have which is a combination between Pop and Jazz.

One thing that I like from this album is that I could listen to Yossi‘s voice more often than ever.

Being my favorite member since the first time I paid attention to Morning Musume and Hello! Project. This is the first time, Yossi has so many lines in a group. In the past, she didn’t have that many opportunity. I just hope that there will be more of Yossi in the future.
