[Download] Aqua Timez – ALONES

August 1, 2007

Ahh, this is finally out. =) Feels like it’s been forever since the first episode of Bleach that used this opening…since the first time I heard it, I wanted to hear the full song.

I downloaded this from Jpopsuki about 20 minutes ago…it’s a 320kbps rip, apparently from Nipponsei. Since I’m still seeding it, I just zipped it without changing anything. I think the tags are in the original Japanese, while the filenames are romanized. There’s a 500×500 cover, and two .txt files too…

Tracklist:
01. ALONES
02. 暁 (Akatsuki)
03. Mr.ロードランナー(DJ Mass’Skate Sonic* Remix)(Mr. Roadrunner (DJ Mass’Skate Sonic* Remix))
04. ALONES (instrumental)

Download~ (btw, MegaUpload has decided for some odd reason that I know enough Japanese to navigate their Japanese site. I have no idea why, but all MegaUpload pages redirect me to the same page but in Japanese…>______< At first I blamed it on the fact that I’m at a Japanese school and everything at the moment, but then I remembered that I was using the English site last week here…)

So, as I said before, I’m not a review person. But I’ll try to give a bit of thought on each track…?
ALONES is the title track, and I’m absolutely in love with this song~ The full version is great, and unlike a certain other recent anime song (>_> Hero’s Come Back!!…) it’s just as good as the TV size. I didn’t really pay any attention to Aqua Timez before this song…I just kinda ignored their releases except for the Bleach movie theme (which I didn’t really like…). But hearing ALONES made me at least pay a bit more attention to their releases…I downloaded their recent single Shiori, and I really like it. =D There’s one part around the middle of this song that I think doesn’t really fit with the rest of the song, but it’s not that bad or anything…
Akatsuki: ok, the name made me slightly giggle. Which makes no sense, cause it’s not like this is related to Naruto or anything, so it means absolutely nothing that Akatsuki is also the name of the bad guys in Naruto. >____> I think this song is ok…I don’t like it as much as ALONES, but I tend to think that way about most b-sides.
Mr. Roadrunner (DJ Mass’Skate Sonic* Remix)…well, it’s a remix. Aaand I’ve never heard the original song. >___> I’m not a huge fan of remixes in general, and since I haven’t heard the original yet…I kinda skipped this song. xD;
ALONES (instrumental) is…instrumental-ish…and there really isn’t anything to say about it…being an instrumental and all…except that I hate when songs start out with vocals right away without an instrumental intro because whenever I try to sing them I always come in late and it screws everything up. >_______> This happens to be one of those songs. It’s always the good songs, the ones I might possibly want to sing in public, but I can’t because of this…

Anyway, the order with this single (and Onna ni Sachi Are limited edition B, and Egao YES Nude limited edition A) shipped yesterday, so it should come sometime next week…unlike Onna ni Sachi Are, this already came in 320kbps so I’ll just upload the scans once it arrives.

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:
