[Download] Morning Musume – Onna ni Sachi Are single

July 24, 2007

Yaayyy, this single’s out a day early~
I’m so glad I have internet at camp right now…

So I downloaded this from Jpopsuki, and I just .rar’d the folder and uploaded it here without changing tags/filenames/anything. Both filenames and tags are in the original Japanese, and it also includes 500×500 images of all 3 covers. It’s currently in VBR or whatever the hell it’s called (which I find absolutely pointless), and the bitrate is around 260kbps.

Here’s the tracklist:
1. 女に 幸あれ (Onna ni Sachi Are)
2. Please! 自由の扉 (Please! Jiyuu no Tobira)
3. 女に 幸あれ (instrumental) (Onna ni Sachi Are (instrumental))

Download~

As for my opinions on this single…I absolutely love Onna ni Sachi Are. I find it really catchy, and it’s been stuck in my head for a while now~
The b-side, Please! Jiyuu no Tobira, is pretty nice too from what I’ve heard- I had to turn it off after two minutes or so because the other girls came back from dinner and I don’t want to bother them or anything. xD; I’ll stick it on my iPod and play it for a bit later…

Rawr, I’m not a review person. I can’t review things, I really can’t…

When my copy of this single arrives (should be in about two weeks or so, cause I pre-ordered Aqua Timez’s ALONES (coming out next week) too and I have to wait for ALONES to come out before the order ships) I’ll upload a 320kbps rip of it and scans. I got the limited edition B with a photobook (and I trust Yesasia to actually send it to me. xD;;), so…


New H!P unit, ‘Buono’

July 21, 2007

I’m heading off to camp tomorrow, and while I’m frantically rushing around and trying to add as much crap to my iPod from my desktop computer as I can (it’s not an outdoors camp, and I’m bringing my laptop, but my backlog of music I need to add to my iPod is all on my desktop), and searching for Prince of Tennis chapter 351 (which is FINALLY OUT this week, thank god), I checked my Google Reader to find a couple new entries…
So there’s a new H!P Kids unit, consisting of Miyabi and Momoko from Berryz and Airi from C-ute.
Ok, I’ll admit it- the Kids have never been my strong point in Hello! Project. I can name every single other current member of H!P, and many past members, and I can name all the groups and which members are in what…EXCEPT Berryz and C-ute. (and the Eggs, but they don’t do much of anything, so whatever) I think I know a few names, but I can’t put names to faces or anything…I listen to their music, but I don’t really know anything about them, lolz. xD
So honestly, I have no idea who these three girls are. *sigh*
And the name. “Buono”. Lolz, what? Wtf does that mean? xDD

Rawr, I dunno. I’ll wait for more information~


Just a mini-post for now, because…

July 13, 2007

…I finally finished up the original Prince of Tennis anime, and I’m confused as hell. D: Ohmygod, the amount of filler at the end…and they like killed the plot. Ryoma in the US Open? Forget the fact that it’s seriously really improbable for a 12-year-old to be in the US Open in the first place…apparently he’s skipping the Nationals for it. I always thought that even with the huge amount of filler, they wouldn’t change the plot like this…I guess I was wrong.
I don’t even know anymore, my head’s starting to hurt. DD: I’ve been trying to figure out how the hell they’re making all of this work with canon, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to stop thinking about it or else I’ll get an uber headache. D:
Maybe I’d understand it if I hadn’t read the manga and so I didn’t really know it was filler and crap…but I did read the manga, and I’m glad I did. Though now I’m just uber confused. I mean, I’ve seen icons that I can tell are anime scenes from the Nationals, and it looks normal and everything- I swear I saw an icon of the scene where Eiji confronts Oishi about Oishi being hurt and not participating in the Nationals, but it makes no sense because according to episode 178 Oishi apparently is participating and is perfectly fine. RAAAAAAAWWWWWRRRRRRRRR
I give up~
Either everything will be explained in the OVA series or they’ll ignore all the filler and base it strictly off of manga canon. I hope it’s the latter so I can ignore all the filler too. D:
ON TO THE PRINCE OF TENNIS NATIONAL TOURNAMENT OVA SERIES~


[Scans] Prince of Tennis, Ore Ska Band, Morning Musume

July 11, 2007

Explanation and music list

This is long overdue. X_x I haven’t done a scans post in about a month, I think…
So anyway, these are the CDs I got earlier this morning: Morning Musume – Kanashimi Twilight (limited edition B, but without the photobook- ugh, look at my last post for info), Ore Ska Band – Tsumasaki, Pull Tab to Can – Wonderful days, and Aozu – WHITE LINE. I was also going to scan Aruiteru by Morning Musume, but I ran out of time…

First up, Morning Musume’s latest single, Kanashimi Twilight. I ordered the limited edition B with the photobook…but it came without the photobook. X_x See my previous post (“What the fuck, Amazon?”) for details…
So yeah, it has the cover of the limited edition B, but it didn’t come with the extras it was supposed to come with. Raaawr.

Download the .rar file for the rest of the Kanashimi Twilight scans

Next, Ore Ska Band’s latest single, Tsumasaki. This was the 11th ending to Bleach, I think? *too lazy to check* I also ordered WAO!!, their full-length album released a week after this single, but apparently Amazon couldn’t get it for me. X_x

Download the .rar file for the rest of the Tsumasaki scans

Then there’s Wonderful days, a single by the temporary Prince of Tennis group, Pull Tab to Can, which consists of the characters Atobe Keigo, Kirihara Akaya, Sanada Genichirou, Sengoku Kiyosumi, Oshitari Yuushi, Ibu Shinji, and Kamio Akira. I dunno who all of the seiyuu are, if you really need to know go look it up. xD;
This song was also used as the 7th ending to the anime…the only ending song that I really like, w00t. xD

Download the .rar file for the rest of the Wonderful days scans

And last but not least, WHITE LINE by the not-as-temporary Prince of Tennis group Aozu, consisting of Echizen Ryoma, Tezuka Kunimitsu, Fuji Shuusuke, and Ooishi Shuuichirou. This was Aozu’s first single, and if I remember correctly the members were chosen through a poll from the anime asking for people to send in the names of three Seigaku regulars they wanted to see sing a song with Ryoma.
The song was used as the 4th ending to the anime. It’s starting to grow on me, though I hated it at first. xD;

What the fuck, Amazon? (oh, and new music + another new order)

July 11, 2007

Raaawwwr, so today I got two packages in the mail- yaaaaay~ xDD One’s a CD Japan package from like two weeks ago (with Prince of Tennis singles, yay), and the other’s an Amazon order from over a month ago that finally shipped out last week. I open them both up, and everything looks good, right? But then I start opening up the CDs themselves. Kanashimi Twilight (from the Amazon order) is first. And…no mini-photobook. I ordered the limited edition B, that’s supposed to come with a 40-page photobook, right? And the CD I have has the correct cover (it’s the limited edition B cover), but no photobook. Just the CD.
ROAR WTF
At first I was thinking that they like ran out of the limited edition and sent me the normal edition instead, but I double checked it on the Wiki- and the CD has the correct cover. And it lists the correct price. So what’s the deal? D:
Rawr, I don’t like Amazon. Next time if there’s something not on Yesasia, I’m using CD Japan~

Mehh, I don’t think it’s worth it to complain or anything. *sigh* Whatever. Looks like I won’t be able to scan the mini-photobook for everyone after all, though…
I wonder if there’s something I’m missing somewhere, though? I mean, this doesn’t seem like something such a trusted site would do…

So this is what I got today:
Morning Musume – Kanashimi Twilight (limited edition B, but no photobook)
Ore Ska Band – Tsumasaki
Aozu – WHITE LINE
Pull Tab to Kan – Wonderful days

We’re having this cleaning service come today and I have to stay out of my room while they clean it, so I’ll probably use that opportunity to scan these, so~ a long overdue scans post should come up sometime today~

On another note, I made yet another CD Japan order. I mentioned I was a sucker for anything limited, right…?
Kawamura Takashi – Asobi ni Ikanaika? (limited release)
Kaidou Kaoru – Sekai wa Kawaru (limited release)
Oishi Shuuichirou – Honto no Kimochi (limited release)
Kikumaru Eiji – Come Together (limited release)
Kikumaru Eiji – Kiku-chan no Soran Bushi (limited release)
Kikumaru Eiji & Oishi Shuuichirou – Type wa D! (limited release)

8D Lots of Prince of Tennis music. The first four CDs were really really cheap- $4.84 each. Though since they were so cheap, the shipping was uber huge- for the entire order, it was $20 for shipping, and that was the cheapest option. Raaawwr, I figure it’s worth it though.
I don’t like that all of these are limited release only. T_T Thankfully the one I wanted the most (Type wa D!) is still available. =D It’s an uber amazing Golden Pair song that’s really cute~

I love how I went on CD Japan because Yesasia didn’t have the new Shippuuden ending, so I was gonna buy that and the new Bleach ending…but then I ended up dropping those from the order and getting all Prince of Tennis music instead. 8D


Morning Musume – Onna ni Sachi Are PV out!

July 6, 2007

Onna ni Sachi Are on Dohhh UP!

So finally, the PV for this song is out~
I’ve had this on repeat the entire day. @__@ Damn, this song is catchy. AAAND I’m uber happy because for the past few days, I’ve had Hare Hare Yukai (you know, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu ending, the one with the dance) stuck in my head and it’s been bugging me soo much…and this song has now taken it’s place. But this song is far better. =D

I really really like this song…I’m soo glad I pre-ordered this. =D

As for Junjun and Linlin, I’m glad they got solo lines…though I think it was mostly Linlin, they both got lines. They both sound pretty good- I can’t wait to hear more of them. ^^

About the PV itself…it’s pretty good, not the best PV I’ve seen, but I like it. <33

EDIT (2007.07.07): Okk, last night I made an avatar/sig set for my NarutoFan account of this music video, and I thought I might as well share it:

If you want to (I dunno if anybody will, but just in case), you can use these on a forum or something (not NarutoFan), but you have to COMMENT on this post, CREDIT ME in your sig or something, and LINK BACK to this blog.
I might make some more later of other music videos, I dunno…


Kaorin’s…pregnant?

July 6, 2007

WOAH, serious deja vu…
Iida Kaori, former first-gen member and leader of Morning Musume, has announced today that she’s 10 weeks pregnant and going to get married to a former vocalist from some group Tsunku used to produce.
Hello! Online article

I’m happy for her, I really am. But what’s going to happen to her? I’m hoping she has a bit more freedom than the Momusu members, otherwise things might end up pretty bad for her…I mean, Miki got in a huge scandal because of a boyfriend. Kaori’s pregnant. xD;
Then again, I don’t think too much happened to Nono when she got pregnant…at least, nothing bad.

Both Nono and Kaorin found out about their pregnancy during routine check-ups, I think, which makes me wonder…if they’re having sex and not expecting a kid, shouldn’t they use birth control? Or maybe I should just shut up cause I’m too young to really know about these things. xD

So now the question is…who’s next? xD
