Buono! – Kiss!Kiss!Kiss! covers

April 16, 2008

The covers for Buono!’s upcoming single, Kiss!Kiss!Kiss!, are out! The limited edition is on the left, and the regular edition is on the right:

For some reason, I like the normal edition cover better than the limited edition. That’s been happening a couple of times lately, but it’s not good because I always want the limited edition. D: Well, I’m sure I’ll end up with the limited edition in the end…
I’m totally in love with Kiss!Kiss!Kiss!, from the Shugo Chara ending preview. It’s a great song, and I definitely can’t wait until the PV comes out. Minna Daisuki, the b-side, I don’t like as much…it’s an ok song, but it’ll probably take me a bit to really start liking it. I’m sure I’ll like it eventually though, somehow Buono’s songs always do that. xD


Buono! third single title announced! “Kiss xxx”

March 19, 2008

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I love Buono!- they’re my second favorite H!P group at the moment. I enjoyed Cafe Buono a lot, I’ve been listening to it so much lately. Their third single was announced earlier, and now the title and tracklist are out:

Buono! 3rd single – Kiss xxx – Tracklist:
1. Kiss xxx
2. Minna Daisuki
3. Kiss xxx (instrumental)
4. Minna Daisuki (instrumental)

I can’t wait until May 14th, when this comes out. I hope it’s even better than what’s on Cafe Buono! ^___^
Short ~1.5 minute previews should appear on Shugo Chara once the second season starts, since the songs on this single are going to be the new opening/ending themes for that anime.

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)

Honto no Jibun US release, again…

January 9, 2008

Ok, I talked with my friend, she looked at the Newtype article and says that it doesn’t mention anything about a US release. There’s an article (apparently it calls them “lovely ladies”, haha) and a little box showing ‘their latest single’ according to Sarah (I’m assuming she’s talking about Honto no Jibun), but it only says “Now available in Japan” or something along those lines.
I’m going to grab the issue this weekend at the book store (along with the February Shoujo Beat- it’s a j-music special issue) just to make sure, but until then, or until an official source pops up stating that it really is going to be released in the US, I’m calling this just a RUMOR. (Damn.)

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this type of info pop up, there was this one guy that repeatedly added “info” about the supposed “release of the Morning Musume 10th Anniversary album into the US” onto the ThePPN Wiki article. Of course, that ended up being false (sadly)…

While I am considering this a rumor at this point, I wouldn’t totally give up quite yet. You never know…

Honto no Jibun US release…maybe.

Honto no Jibun US Release

So, according to Hello! C-ute (someone added this info to ThePPN Wiki, which is where I first heard about this, then I spent about a half-hour searching online for more info), Honto no Jibun is being released in the US in February.
I’m really skeptical about this. Apparently it’s to promote the US release of the Shugo Chara anime. However…I can’t find ANY INFORMATION AT ALL about Shugo Chara even being licensed in the first place. Even if it was licensed now, the anime wouldn’t air for a while- so why would the theme song be released in February?
The only thing I can find that says ANYTHING about the anime being in the US is the English Wikipedia page, which categorizes the Shugo Chara article as “Cartoon Network” and “2008 Television Debuts”, but it doesn’t have any info about the actual licensing. The Cartoon Network site never mentions it, and a google search doesn’t turn up an English official site or anything.
Also, I can’t find anything official mentioning a US release of Honto no Jibun…

SO, is this all a total rumor? I want this to be true, haha. XD Except maybe the actual licensing of the anime, that can wait until it finishes in Japan, cause otherwise I’m worried the sub group will drop the series. D:

EDIT: I heard that this was apparently announced in this month’s issue of Newtype USA, and I checked on the Newtype website and they do have a Buono article in the music section of the issue! I don’t have access to the issue, there’s no way I can get to a bookstore until the weekend (damn boarding school), BUT I’m calling up my friend who bought the issue when we went to Tokyo Kid last weekend. Hopefully she’ll be home, I’ll get her to check for me~
