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

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.


It’s TENNIS! 8DD
If you know me at ALL you should know immediately what I thought of.
PRINCE OF TENNIS! 8DD

And there’s 7 of them! THEY CAN BE THE HELLO PROJECT KIDS REgULARS! 8D
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….


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.


New CDs from Yesasia

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)

So much hate lately…

2008 predictions

December 31, 2007

Haha, I wrote a list out like two weeks ago, but forgot to post it here. Oops.
Thankfully, I remembered it now, otherwise it would have been too late! xD
Some of these are predictions, some are more wishful thinking on my part…xD;

2008 Predictions
Morning Musume will release 3 or 4 singles and their 9th album. Their 9th album has gotta be coming up soon, they’ve already released three singles due to be on it, and there’s a fourth being released in March.
Morning Musume 9th gen auditions. I know the 8th gen hasn’t been around for that long, but…
Takahashi Ai graduates, becomes a solo artist. I’m kinda neutral on Takitty, I don’t love her but I don’t hate her either. I could totally see her graduating to become a solo artist at some point…she has a good voice, and because of that, she gets so many solos in Momusu. I want the others to get lots of lines too…xD
Hello! Project Kids become uber popular, get a #1 single. I keep hearing people say that the Kids have taken over Hello! Project…I think it’s just a matter of time before some H!P Kids group, whether Berryz, C-ute, or Buono, gets a #1 single.
One of the Berryz gets a boyfriend and is kicked out of Berryz. Haha, I kinda want to see this happen…8D I barely even know their names (I’m learning! I swear I am!) so if one of them got kicked out, I wouldn’t really care all thaaat much…
Yaguchi Mari starts a solo career. Or at least does something, please! She’s my favorite ex-Momusu, and I really want her to sing again.
Yasuda Kei does nothing. Still. Damn.
Goto Maki signs with a new record label and releases first single. Please? I really loved Goto…
GAM comes back. Even for just one single. I was hoping that because of GAM, Miki would still have something to do even after she left Momusu, but now GAM’s pretty inactive…
-As for the new units…Ongaku Gatas is permanent, and continues to release singles. Athena & Robikerottsu releases maybe another single after their upcoming one, then either actually breaks up or just fades into inactivity. Buono! keeps going until Shugo Chara ends, singing all the opening/ending themes, then moves onto another anime.

And just a couple of quick non-j-pop predictions…
Prince of Tennis ends. This is the one prediction that I’d hate to come true the most. However, the end of PoT is obviously happening soon- it’s so close, they’re on singles 1, the very last match of the final round of the National Tournament. The author once said that he’d like to go through Ryoma’s second and third years at Seigaku. I think at one point this would have worked- when Prince of Tennis was really really popular. However, now it’s not, and so I think that he’s just going to end it where it is rather than go on with the chance of cancellation.
Mx0 gets an anime. PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE
Sket Dance survives in Jump. YESS
