Long time no see! I’ve been pretty busy with school exams and applying for scholarships for my exchange trip to Japan in the last months or so. That is why I’m first posting again now. I’ve missed by blog lol.
Lately my obsession have been mostly Fairies and I think I know why. So many new exciting things have happened with this group recently. In April they started their own TV show Harajuku Kira Kira Gakuin (which now has aired 10 times and started its own cafe in Harajuku!) and promoted TIGON’s Lazer Beam sneakers. Then it was announced that Fairies are getting their own manga as well! This manga will start releasing in the shoujo magazine Margaret on the 4th of August. Pretty neat huh?
Fairies were also rated 3rd for most likely idol group to get its big breakthrough this year on Tokyohive! (Of course I voted for them too).
Apart from that I’ve started listening to Fairies radio show Fairies no Fly to the World which is so good with its funny English lessons, “right or wrong” corner and unpredictable topics (even though they changed the great and really funny English teacher Craig Russel out with a poor wannabe English teacher who has worse pronunciation than Fairies and goes by the nickname “Grover”, but is obviously Japanese). Anyway… It’s great to get to know the girls’ personalities better by listening to the way they talk with each other away from the camera and flash lights. For example you hear stories like Momoka has promised to go watch Dark Shadows with Mahiro (watched it too – great movie!) and Kawane just bought a Beyonce album and the likes :P It’s a lot of fun~
About a month ago I joined an English speaking Fairies forum called YouseiKiss where we have started subbing some Fairies shows into English~ It’s a great place to find news about Fairies and follow their excellent show Harajuku Kira Kira Gakuin (which I watch every single week ^^) There are a lot of nice people and surprisingly some of them knew my blog OoO. Crazy huh? Sometimes it’s just hard to believe there are people out there who do read my blog, haha.
About the members, in the beginning I mostly liked Sora, but now I’m beginning to like Miki more and more. I can’t believe I didn’t see how amazing she is to begin with! I just love her eyes, her dance style and above all her funny and fuzzy personality (don’t ask me why I used that word lol) xD Like, when she in an interview where made fun off, because her way of speaking is always kind of slow. I don’t really mind though, I think it’s cute! And then her dance pirouette is really impressive (see here what I mean).
People who have checked out my tumblr recently, may have noticed it has become more and more Fairies-based lol. Even though I also upload a little Arashi stuff (my “comeback” fandom at the moment) ;> I try finding as many pictures with Fairies as possible to upload, but sometimes I have a feeling I’m missing out on something.. I follow their blogs, their twitter and check sites such as Baidu, Puri Eisou and twitter of course. But even though I check up on magazines they supposedly should have appeared in I can never find anything (for example when clicking through a whole magazine uploaded on Hudie or Zazhimi) ;__; It’s kind of frustrating… If anyone know more good sources please tell me!
Right now Fairies fans are anticipating the events of June, where the results of the FairiesNEXT audition will be revealed. No one knows if they are auditioning new members for Fairies or maybe a whole new Fairies-inspired group. I personally hope for the last option, as I think the 7-member line-up is perfect as it is and more members would simply make it crowded and less smooth when they perform their complex dances. But I guess time will tell. I’m definitely excited for June! *o*
Then of course I’m also super excited about Fairies 4th single getting released on the 25th of July! It’s called Tweet Dream and will be a song about twitter and the love teens their age experience. I think the concept of the song sounds really cool and I’m very curious what the lyrics are going to be. I hope for a fun, cute summer song with a catchy beat – yeah! I just hope Fairies wont join the “bikini PV trend” like other current idol groups, but then again it doesn’t fit their image at all. So I’m pretty sure they wont do that ^ ^;
I can’t wait for more Fairies news though,
they are my drug right now just love them so much ♥
And one thing that excites me a lot right now is the fact that I’m going to Tokyo this September to study for 5 months, which means I will probably be able to watch them perform in real life!! *-* Can’t wait for that!
