The Imperial Presence Hyoutei CD announced!

September 1, 2008

タイトル:ミュージカル『テニスの王子様』The Imperial Presence 氷帝 feat.比嘉 青学4代目 vs.氷帝Aキャスト(仮)
発売日:2008年11月5日(水)
品番:NECA-30236

Title: Musical “Tennis no Oujisama” The Imperial Presence Hyoutei feat. Higa – Seigaku 4th cast vs Hyoutei A cast (temporary title)
Release date: 2008.11.05 (Wednesday)
Code: NECA-30236
Price: 2800 yen
First press bonus: Cast stickers

It’s a temporary title? Aren’t the soundtracks usually the exact same title as the musical? Maybe it’s because of the 4th cast vs Hyoutei A cast thing. I’m wondering if they’re going to release more than one soundtrack- maybe one with 5th cast vs Hyoutei B cast? They are releasing three DVDs for it, after all. XD
I can’t wait to see this musical. GOLDEN PAIR SYNCHRO FTW! 8D As for the soundtrack, it comes out a bit before the DVD…I don’t want to hear the music until I see the actual musical. XD Well, whatever…


Holy crap. MORE??

April 23, 2008

Why does it seem to me like the Prince of Tennis music is getting way more busier than usual even though it’s ending really soon? xDD
No, seriously! 7 news items in one day! Info about 7 CDs, some new and some announced earlier. And this is the day after they released covers and info about 4 other CDs!

Catching up

March 12, 2008

So this is my first post after moving my former blog, ~ lurking in the shadows ~ (on Blogger, here) to WordPress. I got the idea for it about a week ago, then like 7+ j-pop blogs got deleted from WP so I decided against it, but after Kawaiirrhea figured out what was causing the shutdowns (Pony Canyon downloads), I decided to just go ahead because I don’t have any Pony Canyon downloads on my blog (and as of now I don’t plan on ever having any). I like WordPress better than Blogger, so…
There’s also a new name. I kinda was getting tired of the old name, and since I’m moving this anyway, why not? xD Resonant Blue was the first thing that came to mind…named after Morning Musume’s upcoming single.

As my first post here, I should catch up with everything I’ve missed lately. I’m going to attempt to keep this blog up-to-date, update it much more, and write some posts that have some actual content besides just quick news posts. xD

(my g key’s broken, and while I’m copy-pasting the lowercase g it’s too much trouble to keep copy-pasting the uppercase and then having to go back to the lowercase…so that’s why I might have random fail moments in terms of capitalization)

Ikemen Samurai – Dear Prince ~Tennis no Oujisamatachi e~

March 3, 2008

Another new single announced today! Dear Prince ~Tennis no Oujisamatachi e~, meaning Dear Prince ~To the Princes of Tennis~, should be kinda familiar to fans of the manga, as it’s the song that was used in the last chapter of the manga last week. I still don’t see the point of that, all it was was the lyrics written on the page, I think they were trying to imitate a song playing in the last episode of an anime but it doesn’t really work with manga. I hear it was hell for scanlators. xD But anyway.
Ikemen Samurai? xD I thought it would be a serious song but the group name (meaning something along the lines of “Good-looking Samurai”) makes it sound like it’s totally not. Though, according to the website, Konomi chose the group name, so…
The group consists of Echizen Ryouma and Tezuka Kunimitsu from Seigaku, Atobe Keigo from Hyoutei, Yukimura Seiichi and Sanada Genichirou from Rikkai, Kite Eishirou from Higa, and Shiraishi Kuranosuke from Shitenhouji. Lots of different schools being represented here…Seigaku and all the teams they faced in the Nationals.
I think this would be a good ending or opening song for the Finals OVA series. I’m sure it’s going to be the ending for the last episode, at least.

Tong-tai – Ya.ki.ni.ku

March 3, 2008

@_@
Another Prince of Tennis unit, this one being one of the more “wtf”-inducing ones. This new unit, just announced today, is based off of the special Yakiniku no Oujisama episode that’s being released on March 16th, where Seigaku and a lot of rival schools meet at a yakiniku place and have a contest to see which school can eat the most in one hour. This song is apparently going to be the ending theme for that episode, and I can only hope that it’s -only- that episode…
The unit is made up of Tanishi Kei from Higa, Kabaji Munehiro from Hyoutei, and Chinen Hiroshi from Higa. From the manga, I remember Tanishi’s uber yakiniku-eating skills, and Kabaji copied those, but I don’t remember Chinen…?

タイトル:や・き・に・く(初回生産完全限定盤)
アーティスト:トング隊(田仁志 慧、樺地崇弘、知念 寛)
発売日:2008年5月9日(金)
品番:NECM-10104
価格:¥800(税込)

Title: Ya.ki.ni.ku (limited release)
Artist: Tong-tai (Tanishi Kei, Kabaji Munehiro, Chinen Hiroshi)
Release date: 2008.05.09 (Friday)
Catalog code: NECM-10104
Price: 800 yen

Wonder what’s up with the Friday release again? Maybe the next DVD is going to be released then or something.


[lyrics] byTachikiritai – Koi no Gekidasa Ecstasy!

November 11, 2007

Well, my Yesasia order came, with like 5 CDs and a DVD and everything…and I haven’t had the chance to scan them yet cause our scanner isn’t set up yet, but I decided to romanize the lyrics to Koi no Gekidasa Ecstasy!. Such a catchy song…@_@ I really wanted to sing along, so I romanized the lyrics so I could actually do so. xD

Please remember that this is my first time romanizing lyrics, and I’m only in my 3rd year of taking Japanese classes- so there might be some errors. If you see one, let me know and I’ll fix it. ^^

I have the original Japanese along with the romanized lyrics…I started typing those up in order to check my romanization, but then I decided to just leave them in in case anyone wants them…
