Odd Crossover Thought of the Moment

May 1, 2008

You know, sometimes I get these weird thoughts that I really could live without. This happens to be one of them.
I was thinking about Prince of Tennis this morning, probably fanfic ideas, and then all of a sudden Resonant Blue just randomly pops into my head. So I’m humming Resonant Blue and thinking of PoT fanfic ideas and then all of a sudden it just HITS me that 9 Seigaku regulars = 9 Morning Musume members and immediately I have the mental image of Seigaku singing/dancing Resonant Blue!
Er, what…?

For some odd reason I’m imagining Eiji, Fuji, and Ryoma as the leads. After that, I really don’t know…


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!

Sanada’s upcoming single has a title now! =D


Title: D Kimochi (limited release)
Artist: Sanada Genichirou
Release date: 2008.05.21 (Wednesday)

D Kimochi? O____o
Oshitari had a single called “A Kimochi” once. Is it somehow related…?

4 new Prince of Tennis covers. (finally.)

April 22, 2008

All 4 upcoming Prince of Tennis character CDs have finally been given covers on the Prince of Tennis music official site. Finally, considering one of them is coming out tomorrow. No tracklist yet though? Huh, guess we’ll just have to wait until it comes out. xD

Ikemen Samurai – Dear Prince ~Tennis no Oujisamatachi e~
This one’s so weird. xD What is Atobe wearing? Well, I guess it fits in with the “samurai” thing. Can we see the other regulars cosplaying? xD Where are the others in Ikemen Samurai, anyway?
I would actually LOVE to see them play tennis dressed like this. Sadly, that’s not going to ever happen, right?

Ooishi Shuuichirou – Koikaze ~Windy day Mix~

Echizen Ryouma – ICHIGAN ~2008 version~
Uhhh…creepy shadows? O__o

Tong-tai – Ya.ki.ni.ku
So, here we have almost-bald Kabaji, really creepy Chinen, and the fat-ass Tanishi. Oh man. Dx I don’t think I’ll buy this one. Chinen will haunt my dreams.

So, Dear Prince is coming out tomorrow. Koikaze and Ichigan are coming out next Wednesday, and Ya.ki.ni.ku is May 9th. I can’t wait for Dear Prince! <3 (I really couldn’t care less about the others…)

How did I miss this?

March 20, 2008

I just now noticed for the first time EVER the covers of Berryz Koubou’s Munasawagi Scarlet.

If you know me at ALL you should know immediately what I thought of.

It’s too bad I don’t know anything about Berryz other than their names and their music. Otherwise I’m sure I’d be matching up Berryz members with Seigaku regulars right about now…

EDIT: You know, I realized after typing this up (well actually I’m editing this the next morning but w/e) that even though only 7 people actually play per match (2 doubles matches, 3 singles) there are actually almost always 8 regulars on a team because of the substitute. And of course on Seigaku there are 9 cause Ryouma screwed the whole thing up. =P (Cause at the beginning of the series they made a huge deal out of Inui being off the regulars, and then after the next ranking tournament it was Momo, but then once Ooishi got hurt I think they just decided to screw the whole thing and start just treating the 9th member as another substitute cause it changed each match. xD)
So maybe the Berryz comparison wouldn’t work even if I knew enough about them….

New Prince of Tennis CDs

March 18, 2008

Aand three new Prince of Tennis CDs were announced yesterday.


Title: (Untitled) (limited release)
Artist: Sanada Genichirou
Release date: 2008.05.21 (Wednesday)
Code: NECM-10102
Price: 777 yen

アーティスト:柳 蓮二

Title: (Untitled) (limited release)
Artist: Yanagi Renji
Release date: 2008.06.04 (Wednesday)
Code: NECM-10103
Price: 777 yen

Two new singles from Rikkai members! I assume Rikkai’s all of a sudden getting this much love because of the new OVA Nationals Finals series. Both are untitled at the moment, but the titles will probably be released soon.

タイトル:テニスの王子様 オン・ザ・レイディオ ザ・ベスト(仮)

Title: Tennis no Oujisama On The Radio The Best
Artist: V/A
Release date: 2008.06.25 (Wednesday)
Code: NECA-30227
Price: 2500 yen

GAAASSPPPP! Something that’s not a limited release!
Apparently this is compiling the best opening and ending songs to the radio show. (I wonder if that means it’s ending?) It mentions HIRO-X (he/they did something other than ‘future’?) and then it says “the rest”. I don’t follow the radio show at all, so I really have no idea what any of this is.

There are also four new radio CDs coming out on April 16th, from October 2005 to January 2006. Why are they so far behind…?
There isn’t really much to note about them other than they spelled November wrong on the site (as “Nobember” lol) and what the hell is Ooishi doing on the cover of the January one?

That is not a valid reaction to an umbrella…

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)
