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)

Hmm…a bit more Mikitty stuff + Kira*Pika + some Naruto stuff…

June 2, 2007

So I realized yesterday after making that last blog post that I had said in the one before that that the next one wouldn’t be about H!P.
Oops.
But c’mon, it was kinda important…and I was basically doing a rushed post because I didn’t have that much time before I had to leave. I mean, imagine my surprise when I’m at school like a half-hour early, pulling out my computer like usual, checking International Wota on a random whim, and then- BOOM “[News] Fujimoto Miki Leaves Morning Musume”. I think I might have freaked out more than I did when I found out Nono was pregnant…
And then there were two girls that thought I was freaking out about my appearance (cause it was graduation day, and it’s like a big formal event even if you’re not the one graduating), and they tried to pull me into the bathroom…and I’m just like “no. fuck off. Miki just left Momusu. T__T” Gotta learn how to keep calm on the outside and just freak out inwardly.

And then yesterday afternoon, International Wota linked my post in “[Blogs] Still More Mikitty Reactions”, which made me UBER HAPPY. <333 Especially because I thought the only person reading this was lotus from NF. xD

So anyway…Risa’s going to be sub-leader, as I thought. Works for me. <3 And Takitty as leader of course. Hopefully she won’t lose the position after less than a month like Miki did…^^;;;
I might make a Kanashimi Twilight Miki tribute avi/sig set for my NF account like I did for Yossi…maybe after exams. Though I was planning on keeping the Yossi set until their next PV…

I’m just glad that Miki has GAM, and a solo career too. She’ll still be singing~ <33

On another note, the members of Kira*Pika (well, Kira☆Pika, but Kira*Pika’s so much easier to type. xD) have been confirmed! It’s not Kusumi Koharu and Mitsui Aika like I previously thought, but Koharu and Hagiwara Mai (from C-ute)!
Source (Some Boys! Blog)
Hagiwara Mai? Er…who? I really don’t know anything about C-ute. I mean, I can name almost every single other member of the other groups in H!P (I can’t do most of Berryz, either…), but I don’t know ANYTHING about C-ute. I mean, sorry to say, but the first time I heard a song of theirs was a few days ago when I was in the NF Blender and someone (NudeShroom maybe?) posted a “loli music video”, and when I clicked it it was Ooki na Ai de Motenashite…(which, by the way, was uber-catchy.) So naturally, this announcement surprised me and confused me, cause I had no idea who this “Hagiwara Mai” was. xD;;;
So I did what any other clueless person would do. I looked her up on ThePPN Wiki. First thing that pops out at me. Holy shit, she’s only 11. O_O And she was SIX when she first joined H!P as one of the Hello! Project Kids back in 2002…
O_____________________O
Six…wow. I wouldn’t have been able to do anything like that when I was six. O_o
I mean, they didn’t actually do anything notable until 2004, and that was just the H!P All Stars with all 46 members of H!P…but still, that’s really young.
Actually, no, she was one of the four H!P Kids that were in the Minimoni movie back in 2003…I remember that. That was an uber-amazing movie. xD
So now I know a bit more about Mai…she’s young and cute. xD
I’m still kinda surprised about Koharu. She has Morning Musume, her solo career, that anime she’s in, Momusu Tanjou 10nen…and now Kira*Pika, too. I mean, that’s a lot of stuff to handle…well, ganbatte, Koharu-san~ xD
I can’t wait to hear more about this new group~


Oh shit, we have a tornado warning right now. And I hate to admit it, but I’m like uber scared and on-edge right now cause there’s a ton of thunder and lightning. T______T My mom’s telling me to shut down my desktop computer in case there’s a power surge, but I’m seeding stuff, and Jpopsuki’s down, and so if I want the stuff I’m seeding to count, I have to leave Azureus open until Jpopsuki goes back up again…it’s been down all day, which seriously pisses me off. I can only hope it’s back up by tonight so I can get this week’s CDTV…last time, it was down for like a week and I got uber pissed cause I didn’t get the CDTV episode until like Thursday. >< And this week should be that special section where they show all the upcoming releases for this month, and I need to see if Aqua Timez’s ALONES is being released this month~ I doubt it, but…raaaawrrrr, that single needs to come out soon, I need to hear the full version~

So since I haven’t made a non-H!P post in a while, I might as well add some Naruto stuff in here. :D
Lolz, I can’t believe the Temari fanservice in Shippuuden 16. When I first heard about it (I didn’t watch the raw until yesterday (yes, I watched the raw even though the sub was out- it’s tradition) cause I forgot on Thursday, and so I kept seeing pictures throughout NF) I thought they actually put it in canon. XDDDD Which would make NOOOOO SENSE AT ALL…I was speculating about where they put it in and everything…and then it turned out to be the little ending clip that always has nothing to do with canon plot at all. :D I guess Naruto was just giving Temari and Kankurou a little tour of the hot springs?
Lol, I screenshotted it, but the pics are kinda big and I don’t know how to make thumbnails or anything using HTML. D: So, links instead…? Pic 1 and Pic 2.
Shikamaru should have been their tour guide instead. D: Not only would it be ShikaTema (<333333333333) but Shikamaru hot springs fanservice…:love

As for the rest of the episode, I didn’t understand a lot of it. xDD As the series goes on, I’m understanding less and less with each episode…which makes no sense cause I’m learning more and more Japanese. xDDD; Or maybe it’s just that I don’t remember most of the stuff from this arc…
Well, either way…I need to actually start watching the sub again. xDD;

And last but not least…
This week’s Naruto chapter.
The reason this was last…

ROOOAAARRR UBER NARUTO MANGA SPOILERS FROM HERE ON

Okk, now you shouldn’t be reading this unless you read the Naruto manga. =3

This week started off with a colored two-page spread cover.
And may I say….EWWWWWWWW~
DDDDDDDD: Kishimoto’s choice of colors for Team Hebi…DD:
Obviously Sasuke’s same as normal. Suigetsu’s colors actually look pretty good. Not what we previously thought, but they’re still good. Juugo…well, I think most people didn’t expect that his hair was orange…but heyy, it’s not uber-bad.
It’s Karin that bugs the crap out of me.
BRIGHT. RED. HAIR.
ewwwww.
AND HER EYES ARE THE SAME COLOR! DD:
Katie (my stepsister) says that the main reason it looks really bad is because it clashes with her purple jacket. I dunno, I don’t know about what colors work and what colors don’t, all I know is that it looks pretty damn bad. D: Hopefully they’ll touch it up a bit in the anime so it doesn’t look as bad…
I still say we should go with the black hair, tan jacket thing…who colored that? Amaretti? I guess it’s what I’m used to since I saw it first…xD;; I mean, I know I’m not using the red and purple colors in my fanfiction. >< I’m sticking with the black and tan…

BUT ANYWAY.
Lolz, I love Tobi. xDD Tobi vs. Sasuke would be fun. Sasuke would pwn, of course. Then again, we haven’t seen anything Tobi can do yet…all we know is that he’s a good boy. =3
And then the last page of the chapter.
Kabuto.
I fucking FREAKED OUT. Like, seriously fell out of my chair and everything. I mean…it’s fucking SCARY! DDDDx
So…so…Orochimaru’s alive? In Kabuto? I’m a bit lost here…and still creeped out. I think I’ll just kinda…wait until next week…o_o;; See what happens…I really don’t want to think too much about this at the moment…(not to mention exam week is next week so I really shouldn’t anyway.)

I still have some ideas about stuff to post, but this post is long enough already…not to mention I’ve already spent two hours writing this. xDD;; Maybe later….
If I don’t get one in tomorrow, I probably won’t get an entry in until Thursday afternoon. Exams suck. D:


New Momusu single + new H!P group? + American release of Sukeban Deka + Korean cover of Renai Revolution 21…

May 30, 2007

ROAR INFORMATION OVERLOAD~ DDDD:
Lol, this is what happens when you follow H!P like this. It gets REALLY crazy, REALLY fast.

So first of all, NEW SINGLE FROM MORNING MUSUME ON JULY 25th~~~
xDDD I’m so excited~ This is the first single with Junjun and Linlin...I seriously can’t wait to hear them sing. =D They were really cute in their intro at Yossi’s graduation concert~ I’ve been waiting ever since to hear them sing and everything~ It’s also the first single in like EVER (well, 7 years) without Yossi. T_____T I seriously miss her so much already~ She wasn’t really one of the main singers, but I really really liked her…
Morning Musume’s 34th single – Onna ni Sachi Are
I was looking for an official source for this, but I couldn’t find one. I must not be looking in the right places… =/ Ah well, ThePPN Wiki will do just fine for now. xD

Next up~ I actually don’t know much about this one, but apparently there’s a new H!P duo, consisting of Koharu and Aika? I’m not quite sure. There’s nothing on ThePPN Wiki (well, the name of the duo was added to the groups list a few hours ago, but it’s not mentioned on either of the girl’s pages), there’s nothing on Wikipedia (English or Japanese), there’s nothing on the official H!P site…however, Some Boys! Blog says in the latest New Upcoming Releases post that a group called “Kira*Pika” is releasing their first single on August 1st…and in the comments, someone said that ‘Kira’ represents Koharu and ‘Pika’ is Aika.
I’m gonna keep hunting for information about this Kira*Pika duo…

Next~
Sukeban Deka: Codename = Asamiya Saki is being released in America~!! It’s going to hit stores June 17th, using the English title of Yo-Yo Girl Cop. xD
I haven’t seen this movie yet, but I’m DEFINITELY buying it as soon as I find it. It looks absolutely amazing. xD
This movie stars Matsuura Aya as Asamiya Saki, a delinquent girl who is taken in by the government and fights crime to redeem her troubled past. (lol, copy-pasted from Wikipedia since I’ve never actually seen it. xD) Apparently she goes undercover in a high school or something…and she uses a yo-yo to fight.
Now, it ALSO stars v-u-den! Ishikawa Rika, Miyoshi Erika, and Okada Yui play Ayaya’s rivals…or something like that. xD;
I did a quick search and found a 90-second preview on Youtube…

Looks pretty amazing. xD
The theme song is Thanks!, by GAM…which, of course, includes Ayaya~

Last but not least…
Lol, this isn’t really as much H!P news or anything as it is just a random thing I found through a few other H!P blogs.
All H!P fans know Morning Musume’s 2000 hit single Renai Revolution 21, right? And in case you don’t know or forgot, here’s the PV~

It’s one of my favorite Momusu songs, which is one of the reasons I was so shocked when I heard this:
The Korean actress/singer Hyun Young released a new single today…a Korean cover of Renai Revolution 21.
The PV actually has references to some H!P acts. One of her outfits in the PV looks a lot like 3nin Matsuri’s outfit from waaaay back in the second set of shuffle units. Another looks like the outfit from Odoru 11’s shuffle unit PV.
And I noticed in the Korean PV, there are parts where she uses pretty much the same dance as the original. xDD
Anyway, here’s the Korean PV:

I promise my next blog entry won’t be like uber long H!P rants and crap. xDD; I’d write something up on something else, but it’s 10:45 and I still need to do homework and crap…
