New layout!

So now I finally got myself pulled together to update the blog layout. I haven’t really changed anything since I moved my blog to wordpress some time ago, so felt like I needed a change now xD I hope you like the new design (even though it makes some of my blog posts look really crappy – but what can I do?) with the beautiful, adorable Japanese actress Kariya Yuiko whom I fancy quite a lot! xD Doesn’t she look beautiful? :3

See ya!

Everybody say ~Ebizori Diamond~ ♪

Right now a certain song is stuck on my mind. It’s the song “Ebizori Diamond” by Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku also known as Ebichu for short (which I’m very grateful for ^^;) or the funny nickname King of Gakugeikai (Lol) The song is just too catchy for my own health xD


You probably haven’t heard about this idol group as it’s still pretty new (sort of, they debuted in 2009, but it seems like these two past years they have been training or preparing for their major debut) and then they haven’t released any major singles yet (only indie singles).

Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku

 

What I really like about this group is that first of:

  • It’s a Stardust group (Whoah! Momoiro Clover is their senpai! xD)
  • There are a lot of members (there are 10 right now, but that’s not too many like AKB for example)
  • There theme is an elementary school class, so every member has her own student number (so cute! and reminds me of Sakura Gakuin)
  • The members fit each other nicely ♥
  • There are a lot of different personalities, but in general every member has her own charm points~
  • Most members sing well and their are even some really good voices in between (here I’m specially thinking about Hinata ♥)
  • Their songs are really catchy!
  • And last but not least they really are a bunch of cute girls ^o^ (heh~)

  • 2011 (April): Yano Hinaki (5 March 1997)

Yano Hinaki

I’m a little shocked that already three members have left the group just these past six months! O_O I’m afraid other members will leave (like next month!) especially members I like a lot >o< I really liked Hinaki and I think she was one of the best singers before Hinata was added to the group *sigh* But of course nobody is forced to be in the group… I’m just really sad Hinaki chose to leave T-T (why~?)

It was also really weird, on the exact day I chose to look more into the this group (like learning the members’ names and such) I read that Rio has decided to leave the group as well – yes – just like that. I was in shock! >o< I was thinking: oh my god, how many members will be left tomorrow?! But luckily no other have decided to leave after Rio and I hope it stays that way! xD *Phew!*

 

Up until now Ebichu has released four indie singles:

  • Asa no Chime ga narimashita ! (朝のチャイムがなりました!) (14 February 2010)
    01. Nani ga nan demo (Ebichu ver.) 「なにがなんでも(エビ中 ver.)」
    02. Daibakuhatsu No.1 「大爆発No.1」
  • Ebizori Diamond !! (えびぞりダイアモンド!!) (7 August 2010)
    01. Ebizori Diamond!! 「えびぞりダイアモンド!! 」
    02. Ebizori Diamond!! (Okadada Remix)
  • Chime (チャイム) (10 January 2010)
    01. Chime 「チャイム」
    02. Doshaburi Regret 「どしゃぶりリグレット」 (Pouring Regret)
  • The Tissue ~Tomaranai Seishun~ (ザ・ティッシュ〜とまらない青春〜) (27 April 2011)
    01. The Tissue ~Tomaranai Seishun~ (ザ・ティッシュ〜とまらない青春〜)
    02. Ebichu Ichi Shukan (エビ中一週間)

My favorite songs of them so far are definitely: Ebizori Diamond!!, Doshaburi Regret and The Tissue ~Tomaranai Seishun~ ♪ Ebizori Diamond is just a crazy catchy song (no use denying that!), Doshaburi Regret is a very heartfelt ballad about regretting a lost love (simply fantastic song) and Tissue (the song about hay fever) is simply just a hilarious song ^o^ (as well as the first single to get a PV :O)

The Tissue ~Tomaranai Seishun~ PV

Kashiwagi Hinata

I find Rika and Reina incredibly funny in this PV and Hinata, Mirei, Rina, Aika and Hirono are just soo cute~ ♥o♥ but Natsu, Ayaka and Mizuki have yet to catch my attention.
The member I really noticed the most in this PV was Hinata. Her pigtails, voice and face are just all so amazingly adorable – it hurt my eyes *_*; I immediately thought: who is that girl? She’s so cute!! ~  That’s why so far I think Hinata is my favorite member ^-^

Other members I like a lot are Reina, Mirei, Hirono and Rina ♥

But I’m really into this group right now, so I’m quite impatient about new releases. I’m just thinking: please release something new soon! all the time ^^; (It’s horrible T-T) But I guess I have to be patient *sigh* It’s hard to be a fan sometimes… >_<

And just a last thing: to all of you who didn’t knew about this group, I hope you will give them a chance. I’m sure they are going to be the new best thing in the up-and-coming idol generation very soon~ ;)

 

I’m buying so much stuff lately ( >д<);

This is was I bought in February ^^;

  • Buono! 11th single:  Zassou no Uta
  • Sakura Gakuin 1st single:  Hello! IVY/ Yume ni Mukatte
  • Karen Girls’ album:  Fly to the Future
  • Berryz Koubou concert: Berryz Koubou Concert Tour 2010 Aki ~BerryKou Fest!~
  • Idol magazine “Next Idol Break!” Vol. 1
  • Sakura Gakuin photos and fan flag

Buono! 11th single:  Zassou no Uta

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m  so happy that Buono is finally back and rockin’. They were inactive for a whole year, so I was very worried the group would disband or die out >o<

So this single is like a miracle from heaven *__* I think all three songs are really great and I especially like Zassou no Uta. JUICY@HEART is cool too, but I just think there something special about this song. It has a completely different sound than their previous songs, so that’s really nice ^^b

I also love love love the PV for this song :D xD

 

Sakura Gakuin 1st single:  Hello! IVY/ Yume ni Mukatte

I have just recently started to know this group, but I already love it so much. I will even admit I think I ordered this single only one day after learning about them xD I think this is a really strong first single, but they are still very unknown. I definitely like Hello! IVY the best, it’s so catchy! They are releasing their first album March the 23th – so maybe people will start noticing them more ^o^

<— I got this cute photo card, as I ordered my copy from HMV. It’s with Raura, Ayami and Nene. I really love these girls :3

I will maybe a post about this group really soon~

 

 

Karen Girls’ album:  Fly to the Future

I got to know this group, because Suzuka and Ayami from Sakura Gakuin used to be in this group back in 2008 – 09. I really think they did some cool and energetic dance/trance songs and it’s sad such a great idol group had to disband, just because they only did songs for the anime Zettai Karen :(

But anyway this album (which was the only album they got to release) is really great! Even though it only has 7 tracks, I liked all the songs on the album :D Of course the previously released single tracks, Over the Future – MY WINGS – Top Secret, are really good – but I enjoyed the other 4 songs very much too. I think my favorite tracks of the new songs are Kiratto Piratto! Dash Girl’s and Bye! Bye! Bye! ^^

<— I got the Yuika card. Well, I actually wanted Suzuka’s card T-T But I guess I will survive… xD

 

 

Berryz Koubou concert:Berryz Koubou Concert Tour 2010 Aki ~BeriKou Fest!~

Two words: AMAZING CONCERT

This concert is a really strong comeback after the Otakebi House concert (a present from my parents for my birhtday), which wasn’t one of their best concerts in my opinion. First I would like to say that choosing Nanchuu Koi wo Yatteruu YOU KNOW? as the opening song, was a really wise choice ^O^ (My favorite Berryz song) *o* And then I would like to say I loved that they choose to perform so many songs from the  fourth album (my favorite Berryz album xD) I was also really happy they finally got to perform Kimi no Tomodachi – which was my favorite song on Berryz’s 6th album :3 and MOON POWER ^O^ Fantastic songs.

It was cool – many of the songs were performed in a different way than usual. I especially noticed TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY, Gaki Taishou and Rival :O And that Otakebi Boy WAO! performance had so much force – so amazing! XD

Here it is:

Just amazing! *O*

 

Idol magazine “Next Idol Break!” Vol. 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was surprised this magazine was so tiny (just like the YanYan mag) but it still had a lot of cool content ;D It had a lot of pages with Momoclo in their Pinky Jones clothes and Super Girls as one can see on the cover. But there were also pages with Sakura Gakuin, Tokyo Girls’ Style and Passpo :D Yay~ There followed a radio interview with Momoclo and Super Girls on a CD as well :3

 

 

Sakura Gakuin photos and fan flag

I really love my Sakura Gakuin flag <3 (Can’t stop swinging it whenever I get the chance ^^) and those photos are really adorable. I have placed them right beside my bed, so every time I wake up I see these lovely smiling girls :)
I got these items from Asmart, if anyone would like to know ^^

I think that was all for now.

This month I have ordered the following items:

  • 30/3 – Berryz Koubou‘s 7th album:  7 Berryz Times
  • 23/3 – Sakura Gakuin‘s 1st album:  Sakura Gakuin 2010 Nendo ~message~ (Ra)
  • 23/3 – Momoiro Clover‘s 1st Live DVD Concert
  • 6/4 – AKB48‘s second studio album: Title TBA (+DVD) (First Press Limited Special Box)

Yeah I know… I spend too much money on idol stuff. I just can’t help myself, there is being released so much idol music right now, it’s hard not to spend a lot of money xD Haha
