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)

Odorimasen ka?

November 24, 2007

Well, the Megane’s of Prince of Tennis have a new single…I could have sworn I read on some site that Manatsu no Megane’s was their last single, but obviously not considering they’re coming out with another one on December 22nd.
Because of the date, I thought it would be a Christmas/winter-themed single (I mean, come on, their last single, Manatsu no Megane’s, was uber summer themed…xD), but the title seems to indicate otherwise- ‘Odorimasen ka?’, or ‘Won’t you dance?’ (or something along those lines), according to Yesasia. Well, maybe it’ll turn out to be a winter single, but…well, we’ll see. xD
I was uber confused at first cause the 22nd is a Saturday- but then it said in the description image on Yesasia that it had something to do with this year’s Jump Festa, which takes place December 22nd-23rd. I think it’s coming out at the Jump Festa itself…
There are also two other CDs coming out on the 22nd- the two new Musical Tennis no Oujisama Best Actor’s Series. #9 is Sanada and Yukimura, while #10 is a special Seigaku 3rd Cast Memorial Edition- the third cast graduated in Absolute King Rikkai Second Service, which took place a couple of months ago. Which reminds me, Progressive Match Higa Chuu feat. Rikkai is premiering really soon…I can’t wait to see 4th cast. Let’s hope the new Golden Pair will handle the angstiest Golden Pair scene ever (Eiji vs Kai…) really well. <3

By the way, I wonder if I’m the only one that is reminded of Hello! Project a bit when it comes to Tenimyu actors? I mean, they both have people ‘graduating’ and constantly get new members…

AHHHHHH WTF (very minor PoT chapter 358 spoilers)

September 20, 2007

I just realized that the Golden Pair hasn’t won since
I mean, they’re a National-level doubles pair, and they’re supposedly one of the best…
so how come they haven’t won in almost 30 volumes?
Ooishi/Kikumaru pair record
vs. Fudoumine – win
vs. St. Rudolph – loss
vs. Yamabuki – win
vs. Hyoutei – N/A (Ooishi hurt his arm)
vs. Midoriyama – N/A (Ooishi’s still hurt)
vs. Rokkaku – N/A (still hurt)
vs. Rikkadai – loss
vs. Higa – N/A (Ooishi’s off the regulars)
vs. Hyoutei 2 – loss
vs. Shitenhouji – N/A (they just didn’t play, really, no reason given)

I’m actually really disappointed.
I mean, seriously.
Compare them to Inui/Kaidou…
Inui/Kaidou pair record
vs. Hyoutei (first time playing together) – loss (but they could have won if Inui didn’t call his own shot out)
vs. Midoriyama – win
vs. Rokkaku – N/A
vs. Rikkaidai – N/A
vs. Higa – win
vs. Hyoutei 2 – win
vs. Shitenhouji – N/A
vs. Rikkaidai 2- …loss? who knows, the outcome will probably be shown in tomorrow’s chapter.

Not that the Golden Pair hasn’t had their fair share of screentime. I mean, sure, vs Fudoumine they weren’t really shown- just enough to introduce their abilities. But then St. Rudolph was like, EPIC MATCH- it ended with them losing, but they got a ton of screentime there. Then vs Yamabuki was pretty normal-ish…
vs. Hyoutei, even though Eiji was playing with Momo, there was a lot of angsting on Eiji’s part about not being able to play with Ooishi…
vs. Rikkaidai was great- in the manga, that is. The anime kinda killed it, but they ruined the whole arc, so whatever. In the manga, Eiji got that concussion and everything…cute Golden Pair. <333
vs. Higa Chuu, they had that entire thing with Eiji ‘not playing doubles anymore’…I seriously CRIED at that episode. I’m not even kidding, once it hits the scene where Eiji confronts Ooishi in front of the clubroom, I’m IN TEARS. ;-; EVERY FUCKING TIME. Eiji’s singles match blends in amazing Golden Pair angst with Eiji being uber cute and amazing, and it’s great…
So then vs Hyoutei again, they played against the Silver Pair. One word: SYNCHRO. That was so kick-ass. =D They got quite a bit of screentime there, as a doubles pair that is actually pro-level in some aspects- Synchro is something that apparently only the top pro doubles pairs achieve. =DDD
But if they’re so good, then why can’t they come up with a win?
Which is why they have to win this match. Against whoever Rikkaidai puts out- my guess is Marui/Jackal, since to me neither of them seem to be the singles type, but you never know…
Their goal is to be the #1 doubles pair at Nationals. So far, they’re failing MISERABLY. As much as it pains me to say so, it’s true.
BUT. If they win against Rikkai’s D1…
Well, I’ll be happy. =D
