[Scans] Prince of Tennis, Ore Ska Band, Morning Musume

July 11, 2007

Explanation and music list

This is long overdue. X_x I haven’t done a scans post in about a month, I think…
So anyway, these are the CDs I got earlier this morning: Morning Musume – Kanashimi Twilight (limited edition B, but without the photobook- ugh, look at my last post for info), Ore Ska Band – Tsumasaki, Pull Tab to Can – Wonderful days, and Aozu – WHITE LINE. I was also going to scan Aruiteru by Morning Musume, but I ran out of time…

First up, Morning Musume’s latest single, Kanashimi Twilight. I ordered the limited edition B with the photobook…but it came without the photobook. X_x See my previous post (“What the fuck, Amazon?”) for details…
So yeah, it has the cover of the limited edition B, but it didn’t come with the extras it was supposed to come with. Raaawr.

Next, Ore Ska Band’s latest single, Tsumasaki. This was the 11th ending to Bleach, I think? *too lazy to check* I also ordered WAO!!, their full-length album released a week after this single, but apparently Amazon couldn’t get it for me. X_x

Then there’s Wonderful days, a single by the temporary Prince of Tennis group, Pull Tab to Can, which consists of the characters Atobe Keigo, Kirihara Akaya, Sanada Genichirou, Sengoku Kiyosumi, Oshitari Yuushi, Ibu Shinji, and Kamio Akira. I dunno who all of the seiyuu are, if you really need to know go look it up. xD;
This song was also used as the 7th ending to the anime…the only ending song that I really like, w00t. xD

And last but not least, WHITE LINE by the not-as-temporary Prince of Tennis group Aozu, consisting of Echizen Ryoma, Tezuka Kunimitsu, Fuji Shuusuke, and Ooishi Shuuichirou. This was Aozu’s first single, and if I remember correctly the members were chosen through a poll from the anime asking for people to send in the names of three Seigaku regulars they wanted to see sing a song with Ryoma.
The song was used as the 4th ending to the anime. It’s starting to grow on me, though I hated it at first. xD;

New Amazon order~

May 29, 2007

Yeah, Amazon, not Yesasia. Yesasia bugs me at the moment. They don’t have any Ore Ska Band. DDD: Amazon doesn’t have too much Japanese music, and most of the j-pop they do have is overpriced, but they actually have Ore Ska Band…and it’s not too overpriced, either.
So I ended up getting:
Ore Ska Band – Tsumasaki
Ore Ska Band – WAO!!
Naruto Uncut Boxed Set 3
Morning Musume – Aruiteru (limited edition type B)
Morning Musume – Kanashimi Twilight (limited edition type B)

Tsumasaki is the current Bleach ending, not to mention a great song~ I’m on a mission to get all Naruto and Bleach opening/endings, so…
WAO!! is Ore Ska Band’s first album, and it has Tsumasaki and Pinocchio, the 14th Naruto ending. It was just released last Wednesday, and it hasn’t been uploaded onto Jpopsuki yet, so…I figured I’ll grab it and upload it. I absolutely love Ore Ska Band right now~
I actually decided on the normal edition for the 3rd Naruto boxed set. The limited edition has a sound headband and a sound “id bracelet”…I don’t think it’s really worth the extra ~$20 or whatever.
For the Momusu singles…actually, I was really surprised that the limited editions were still available. They’re all sold out on Yesasia… It especially shocked me that they still had the limited editions of Aruiteru. That was a hugely popular single, and it was released back in November…but Amazon had both limited edition versions. I was planning on getting both these singles anyway, but I just had to get the limited editions as soon as I found out they were still available. See, back in 2005, when I got my first Morning Musume single (Chokkan 2), I decided from then on I’d pre-order the limited edition of every single/mini-album/album they release. I got up through Ambitious!, but then I kinda fell behind when I started straying away from j-pop…now I’m back into it, only to find I missed 3 singles, a mini-album, and an album. xD; The mini-album and album were pretty expensive on Amazon, and the limited editions were still available on Yesasia, so I didn’t get those…and the limited edition of the other single, Egao YES Nude, was sold out on Amazon. >< I’ll get the normal edition from Yesasia at some point.
Actually, starting from Aruiteru, the Momusu singles have had two limited editions…one with a DVD and one with a mini-photobook. It kinda ruins the surprise of what’s actually going to be in the limited edition…before this, it was different depending on which single it is. Chokkan 2 and SEXY BOY had photocards, Ambitious! had a DVD… Not to mention it’s hard to decide now. D: For Aruiteru and Kanashimi Twilight, I got the ones with the photobook. It was a bit cheaper, and I figure I can always download the ISO online and burn it to a DVD…
I dunno, having a DVD with the limited edition kinda seems a bit generic to me. xDD So many artists do the CD/CD+DVD thing… I liked the photocards the best…I currently have 20. xD 5 from Chokkan 2, 5 from SEXY BOY, 5 from Goto Maki’s Sayonara “Tomodachi ni wa Naritakunai no”, and 5 from Abe Natsumi’s Koi no Telephone Goal…

Anyway, I can’t wait until Morning Musume’s next single. I really want to hear those new Chinese “exchange students”, Junjun and Linlin…I saw a video of their self-introductions during Yossi’s graduation concert a few weeks ago, they’re so cute! <333 They’re still learning Japanese, and I could actually almost fully understand one of them since my Japanese skills are pretty basic too~
