Fairies “More Kiss” single(⌒▽⌒)

Over two weeks ago, I bought myself Fairies‘ debut single More Kiss but never got the time to actually post about it. That really bothered me, so now I’ll make a delayed blog post! ^^; (haha)
Ever since I read news about the agency Vision Factory (under Avex) debuting a new idol group and watching videos with the girls training their dance, singing and performance skills like crazy, I’ve been very interested in this group. The one thing who really got me intrigued was probably the strong focus on dancing and then the more overall mature look being promoted with these idols. Recently, K-pop has started to become really popular in Japan, so I’m glad to see that the Japanese are trying out more mature styles for their girl units for once. I feel like that’s been a rare thing among Japanese girl groups until now.
Then of course there’s the little detail concerning the girls’ age. They are definitely too young for this mature style, but then again I think it’s a good thing to start girl groups out when they are young, because it will be easier for them to learn new things and adapt to the idol business at that age. I also guess they will grow to fit the image in some years time – then it will be better. Otherwise I’m really loving their style! I love that they aren’t afraid to wear their hair in ponytails and without any bangs (well almost none of them) which is so refreshing ^o^ I also want to thank the one who’s responsible for the girls’ wardrobe; their clothes really rock! Not to mention that they wear LOTS of different set clothes *O* Wohuu~ ^o^b I seriously never get tired of watching Fairies perform, as they always have a new cool dance to perform in a new set of glamorous clothes xD Yay!
Apropos dancing, I love that guy Kenzo who teaches and comes up with dances for Fairies! He can really make the girls move in amazingly bad-ass way :D Just check out their dance moves to this remix of Trish’s Mannequin and Freefire’s Dataloss o_o

It’s insane right?! xD I was really impressed by this performance. After watching this video I was convinced that I wanted to follow and support this group. I ordered their single (Limited version B) and started watching anything I could find with Fairies ^^ Luckily they have been promoted like crazy and starred as guests in a lot of TV shows I could watch – really nice! ;D After listening to their two songs More Kiss and Song for You numerous times, I’ve decided I love them both equally much. At first this wasn’t the case at all. I didn’t like More Kiss very much, because I thought Momoka was too dominant with her practically singing solo and all. I actually found the song a bit dull, maybe apart from the very catchy chorus verses. Now I really love this song and like to sing a long. I think it’s a great debut song and it deserves to be the A-side song.

Song for You I’ve liked pretty much since my first listen. Some people say it’s a typical boring idol song without any originality – well maybe that’s sort of true – but that doesn’t change that it’s a nice, genki idol song with good vocal power which I like a lot! I’m so glad that all girls get to sing in this song and then I also really like how they sing in pairs a lot. This reminds me of Arashi and Berryz songs, where they do that quite often. I definitely prefer this form of singing instead of the typical “all members sing” formula :3

Right now my member ranking is as follows:
1) Nomoto Sora (野元空)
2) Shimomura Miki (下村実生)
3) Fujita Miria (藤田みりあ)
4) Itou Momoka (伊藤萌々香)
5) Hayashida Mahiro (林田真尋)
6) Inoue Rikako (井上理香子)
7) Kiyomura Kawane (清村川音)

I’ve chosen Sora as my favorite member, but actually I like Miki and Miria just as much. I just had to give one of the girls first place, but actually I almost like all three equally. Maybe I like Sora a bit more than all the other members though ^^; I think she’s really pretty and has a nice voice. Then I also love her name ♥ I learned to write “sora” in kanji (空) the other day actually. Sora means “sky” – isn’t it just a beautiful name? ^o^ Maybe that’s why she wears the color blue a lot? :) I’ll have to admit I like Miki a lot because of her unique looks. She has such beautiful cat eyes and a very lean body – maybe she was a cat in her previous life? xD And Miria I like because of her cute personality and charm. She has such an adorable voice too, doesn’t she? :3 Then of course I like all the other members too, but that’s more  hard to say right now what I think of them.
I’m really glad to see that other girls than me seems to like Fairies. In the video below, some Japanese girls tell about how they like Fairies’ style and look up to them as role models :O It also gives a good impression of how the girls have been promoted these last weeks and how hard they have trained in order to debut.

I totally approve of them having English lessons, but then again Rikako sort of failed with her sentence there xD (lol) And wow Karate lessons o_o That’s awesome ^O^

With my single version a little mini photo book was included and I decided to scan it for you :D There are a lot of great solo shots in it too ♥

I’m glad I bought this version of the single; just look at those pictures *o* Even though I would very much like to watch the full version of the Song For You PV xD (Why doesn’t anyone upload it huh?? I’m going crazy here x_x)

But now I think I’ve mentioned most of my thoughts about Fairies and have only one thing left to say:

Please continue to make other awesome releases Fairies!

That was all, bye bye ~

My first Hey! Say! JUMP order ^o^

Two days ago I received my Hey! Say! JUMP singles (so I got them two days early!) Wohoo! ^O^ and this time the package wasn’t taken my customs, so I’m very very happy :’D

I ordered the OVER single bundle from CDjapan and it was really cheap (yay!) ^o^

There were wholly 4 songs on the regular single:
2. 愛-ing アイシテル (Ai-ing Aishiteru)
3. I Gotta More (Hey! Say! 7)
4. Screw (Hey! Say! BEST)

That’s almost a mini album imo :O My favorite songs are definitely track 2 and 3, love Hey! Say! 7 ♥ and these songs are just SO catchy! xD
Despite all the negativeness towards OVER, I actually really love this song xD It’s very different from their earlier singles and the PV also felt very new and refreshing from their previous work, as well as the clothes were chosen wisely *o* kya~
Screw didn’t do much for me though, but I’m sure the song will grow on me ^^

I’ve actually known Hey! Say! JUMP since their debut, but I’ve never been a real fan or anything. But fortunately this changed drastically after I watched their Arigatou ~Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo~ PV. Afterwards I found myself watching their old PVs, which I hadn’t watched in “years” (or so it felt). Then I found myself downloading their first album (wow! when did they release an album?!) and afterwards their concerts (have watched them all now *_*) and then their drama Scrap Teacher (which is really entertaining :D) and then at last I’m buying their new single ^o^ Wohoo!
So now I’m finally a JUMP-fan :D My all time favorite member is the amazingly cute and talented drummer Nakajima Yuto (he’s such a puppy ♥o♥)~ I don’t know what it is, but this boy just stole my heart xD I love his voice, his eyes, his smile, his awkward (and amazing!) height, his happy personality and his unlimited genkiness X♥X;,,
I also really love the other Hey! Say! 7 members, but mostly Ryutaro and Keito ♥ of the BEST members I love Hikaru and Yuya ;3

I’m so happy they reached number 1 on the Oricon chart today with 113k units sold ^O^ Congrats JUMP! I hope my order helped too ;)

I can’t wait for them to release something new xD Wuah~ (>^o^)>

♥ ~S/mileage’s Debut Single~ ♥

Wau~ I got my two copies of S/mileage's new debut single Yume Miru 15sai today – ONE DAY after its release! *O* (CDjapan sure ships fast :O)

I ordered two copies, because CDjapan provided special posters with each single xD But to my disappointment I got two identical posters :(

Well, c'est la vie :/

BUT – the poster sure is pretty   ( ^ ^)~

The Limited A edition came with a DVD with the dance version of the PV – Though the dance wasn't that special… I would have liked if they switched between the white and black clothes, but it was only the white clothes :(
Still I really like the song and the b-side song Thank You! Crème Brûlée no Yuujou is really cute and happy~ :D

I really admire how the girls can sing in such high notes without sounding too shrill :O They sing in really strong voices and this single has a much more serious sound than their previous happy love singles xD

Here's the PV ^

S/mileage – 『夢見る 15歳』

S/mileage has done quite the promotion for this single ^O^
Here's their promotional truck! XD

They are just so lucky those people who can just visit their records store and meet these wonderful idols >⌂< I'm really jealous!

I like S/mileage very much and I was also one of those people who desperately sent smile pictures in to get them to debut XD 
That's why I hope their new single will sell well :3 well, I've supported them as much as my wallet allowed me to xD

Good luck S/mileage~!
