Resonant Blue covers + DVD info

March 26, 2008

Yes! The covers for Morning Musume’s 36th single Resonant Blue were posted on Some Boys! Blog today, and then the content of the limited edition DVDs was posted there a little later. Both are things I’ve been waiting for for a while (though mostly the DVD content because I wasn’t about to just gUESS which one would have better content and pre-order like that!), so I’m so happy to finally get this info.
First, the covers:

Sono Bamen de Bibiccha Ikenai jan! radio rip

March 21, 2008

I just found out that a radio rip for this song was out, so I went and searched for a download. This song is the b-side to Morning Musume’s upcoming single Resonant Blue.
There’s a lot of talking over it. It seems like a pretty good song, and the line distribution seems more even than in Resonant Blue…but I’ll wait for a better quality version to come out before I really go into my thoughts on it.

Resonant Blue PV

March 14, 2008

I’m kinda late with this, but the internet at the resort I’m staying in here (I’m in the Dominican Republic until Saturday night) died last night and I just got it back. Actually the internet here just kinda sucks in general, it seriously took at least an hour for the Resonant Blue PV to load fully yesterday. I was planning on thinking it over for a bit while I was at dinner, but then when I came back ready to write the internet was dead.

So, Resonant Blue. Morning Musume’s 36th single and the namesake for this new blog. As I mentioned in the last post, I don’t think the song itself is all that impressive or special, but at the same time, it’s really catchy and I can’t stop it from getting stuck in my head all the time.
Here’s the problem: It’s dominated by Reina, Ai, and Koharu.

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)

Morning Musume ranking

February 11, 2008

I was actually planning on doing a Morning Musume ranking soon anyway, so this provided a great opportunity to actually do it.

I didn’t do the Berryz Koubou and C-ute ones, because while I FINALLY know their names (YESS) I don’t actually know anything about them. Definitely not enough to rank them.

1. Junjun
Definitely my #1 right now, even though she’s pretty new there’s just something about her…
2. Reina
Reina’s cute and has a good voice, but somehow her spot was just recently taken over by Junjun. xD
3. Aika
She’s the only Musume younger than I am (only by a month), and I didn’t like her at first but slowly I’ve grown to really like her.
4. Risa
I like her voice, and I’m glad that she has the Athena & Robikerottsu unit- though I don’t think it’ll be a permanent unit since it was created only for that anime.
5. Koharu
While she doesn’t have the best voice in the group, I really like her solo singles. They’re strangely addicting…
6. Ai
She has a really strong voice, and I think she would be great as a soloist. However, I can’t help but feel like she’s getting wayy too much attention in Momusu.
7. Sayumi
She’s really cute, but she really doesn’t have that good of a voice. She’s definitely improved though, I saw a video of her singing Do it! Now with two other girls (I forget who, maybe Reina and Eri) and I couldn’t stand her voice. X_x It’s tolerable now.
8. Linlin
I don’t really know much about her…
9. Eri
Sorry Eri fans, but I just don’t like Eri that much…

Comparing it to the first Momusu ranking post I did, here, my opinions of most of the girls haven’t changed that much. xD


Favorite Morning Musume members~

June 4, 2007

Lol, it’s the morning of my first exam, and I have to leave at 11:30…so I’m kinda doing some random stuff, and I stumbled across this…and I just had to do it. xD So here’s my current ranking of the Momusu members:

1. Tanaka Reina
2. Niigaki Risa
3. Kusumi Koharu
4. Michishige Sayumi
5. Takahashi Ai
6. Mitsui Aika
7. Kamei Eri

It was pretty tough deciding between Reina and Risa, but I ended up putting Reina on top. I’m not exactly sure why, but…xD
Koharu’s next, cause her solo songs are uber-catch and amazing. XD
Next is Sayumi. She’s not the best singer in the group (well, at least she’s better now than she was when she first joined…I listened to a song from her and two others from an old Best Shot DVD, and oh my god, she was really bad. @_@), but she’s really cute, and I like that. ^^
Ai’s the current leader, but to be honest, I’m not too much of a fan of her. She’s only ahead of…
…Aika, who I still know almost nothing about (it’ll take me a bit to get used to her, just like what happened with Koharu- I hated Koharu at first)…
…and Eri, who I really don’t like. At all. Sorry~

Lol, too lazy to make another uber-post right now. Not to mention for once I can’t really think of anything to talk about…


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:
