『cha cha SING』 Summer song of 2012!

It’s been awhile since Berryz came out with a really catchy song, but this time is certainly different! Their new single is making me go wild, and I must say it’s one of my favourite summer jams this year. It may be a cover of a Thai singer, but so was Jingiskan and that was a big hit. It seems like Berryz can pull of nice covers, almost better than the originals (my biased opinion yes).

Regarding the PV, I think it’s very bright and colorful and fits the song perfectly. Pictures suggested a flash-mob scene would be included in the PV, but unfortunately that was probably only promotion for the single… To bad really. As for the outfits I like how they all look like Thai (or maybe even Indian) princesses, as well as their individual hairstyles look amazing. Especially Risako’s and Miyabi’s hairstyle caught my attention (btw, didn’t Miyabi cut her hair? oOo).

I’m looking forward to watching Momo’s solo PV now! It’s probably going to be pink and flawless ~

Hopefully it will be up on Berryz’ channel soon.

Movies I would like to watch this summer

There are three movies coming out this summer I would especially like to watch.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
2. Super 8
3. Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Now I actually already watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which was an absolutely terrific and stunning movie. But I just want to tell a little about my opinion of it :) I really felt this was how it was supposed to end and the final battle was just nerve-wracking and amazing at the same time xD I’ve read the seventh book two times and I really felt that David Yates was faithful to the book. I will also say that Daniel Radcliffe has really improved over the years as an actor. I’ve always thought he was truly great as Harry, but it really shines through in the last film just how much experience and skill he has learned over the last ten years :O Great job Dan! ^o^
I also really loved how they did the memory of Snape, beautifully done. The child actors were well picked and you could almost feel the pain of loss from Snape’s grief over Lily yourself, as a result of Alan Rickman’s scarily convincing performance >_< Rickman is just the man! (His acting is actually so convincing that Daniel told in an interview from the first movie of the series that whenever he was shooting a scene with Rickman, he had to remind himself that it wasn’t for real over and over again because Rickman was so scary and convincing in his acting! xD Lol.)

Ryan Turner (Hugo Weasley), Arthur Bowen (Albus Severus Potter), Will Dunn (James Sirius Potter) and Helena Barlow (Rose Weasley)

The epilogue scene with Harry, Hermione and Ron as grown-ups with kids was actually one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. I would actually like to watch the movie again, just to watch this scene ♥ The little scene between Albus Severus and Harry was just so cute! It was Harry as a kid all over again, afraid of ending up in Slytherin’s house :P Lovely and charming scene and oddly enough I didn’t find it weird to watch 21-year-old Daniel Radcliffe play a father, all I could think was “Wow, I would like to have Harry as a father!” xD I know, I know, no one could ever take my Dad’s place ;) But one could just feel that warm fatherly atmosphere ooze off Daniel.Was very heartwarming to watch ♥

Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning and Ryan Lee

So as you can hear I was very satisfied with my first movie experience this summer ;)
The reason why I want to watch Super 8 is because I’m a fan of Steven Spielberg as well as movies including cute kids as the main cast xD I love Dakota Fanning, so I’m very excited to watch her little sister’s performance in this movie. It seems like she’s just as talented as her big sister was when she was her age. Then there’s also Joel Courtney who plays the main character, he has a fresh new (cute) face as well, so there’s more to look forward too ^^ But I also want to watch this movie, because I like that the trailer doesn’t spoil the whole plot and leaves one with a mystery to solve, when going to the cinema. And then I’m just a sucker for kids movies in general, so there’s really nothing else to say, other than I’m going to watch this movie – no matter what.

It’s not like I’m a fan of The Planet of the Apes movies or anything, I just find it incredibly cool that two of the hottest actors ever are in the same movie: Tom Felton and James Franco ♥o♥ I know it’s stupid to only watch a movie because of the cast, but after watching the trailer, I’m convinced this is going to be an awesome movie! Andy Serkis acts as the CGI-character Caesar, a monkey which funnily enough moves around on four legs just as his previous role Gollum did. Poor Andy xD But I’m genuinely excited to watch how well the CGI-created monkeys come to life on the big screen and how convincing they are. I hope they are just as good as Gollum in LOTR ;D

But that was all for now, I will report back when I visit the cinema next time, because I’m sure Harry Potter isn’t the last movie I’ll watch this summer ^ ^

My first HMV order ^ ^

Today I stayed home from school, because my throat hurt like mad and I had a terrible headache… But fortunately my day turned for the better when the mailman rang my doorbell and gave me the package from HMV Japan! ^O^ Yay~
First I couldn't believe it, I ordered these things from HMV Japan 5 days ago… FIVE! This is the first time EVER I've received a package earlier than the site claims! :O When I ordered the site said 6-14 delivery days! >O< Wow! Now I know that paying a little extra money for delivery definitely is worth it! ^O^ 

This is my very first time buying Japanese idol magazines, so of course I was very excited! xD Additionally I found out HMV still had the limited edition of Berryz工房 third album: 3 Natsu Natsu Mini Berryz (3夏夏ミニベリーズ) So I just had to buy that too~! x3 My baby~

Every since I discovered ヤ ンヤ ン (YanYan) magazine in January I've wanted to buy a volume ^ ^ So now was the time! Unfortunately Berryz didn't make it to the front page… Even though they have done extraordinary well this month :/ Well let's hope they do next time ;3 They deserve it!
I still get surprised at how small the ヤ ンヤ ン magazine is… :O It's not much bigger than a manga! Additionally it's much thinner than a manga. Well, it still has some lovely pictures and is overall a very nice magazine. But I think I like the BIG ONE GIRLS magazine a little better ^o^ heheh 

The size of the BIG ONE GIRLS (Mew Mew?) magazine was a little better ^ ^ (A4 size) and to my surprise it held collectors cards with Berryz and SKE48 members – nice! xD This magazine had many big beautiful pictures and a great variety of idol groups ^O^ Even Buono was included! Well there was something about their We are Buono! Tour ^^ Check below ;)

And of course it held a section with Berryz pictures from their new album as well ;D

To my surprise S/mileage and Momoiro Clover appeared in the magazine too! (Love~) ^  ^

I really, REALLY hope they will make it… Today I read they still need 1000 smile pictures to win the challenge… And there is only 3 days left! >O<,,, Wuaaa~ I'm worried! I've sent my picture and three other friends pictures in… > o < They have to debut! They just have to! Tsunku how could you even think of this huh?! >U< *@#&¤%=#X!!!!* xD

I really look forward to this groups mayor debut single release in May. Why is there so much time left to wait? XD Sigh I discovered this group maybe two weeks ago and I just love it so much already! My favorites in the group is Kanako Momota and Akari Hayami (aka "Mega" because she's the tallest girl in the group *3*)

At last but not least the Berryz stuff (^O^)/

I've wanted this limited edition of Berryz third album for a loong time xD It feels so good to actually own it myself now (evil laugh~) I just love all the songs on this cute little mini album, especially Maji Natsu Sugiru and Halation Summer ^  ^ <3 I really wish Berryz would make a summer themed album like this again ^3^ I love it~ The limited edition also came with a nice beach ball and beach slippers (too big for me though) I think I'll put the slippers somewhere in my room when it become summer – only as show of course ;D
