You know, the other day I was getting ready to move into my dorm, and I found, on the shelf in my closet, my 2006 Morning Musume calendar. Still totally intact. XD Back then, I got that calendar and couldn’t bring myself to tear the pages off, so I used it as a poster until I moved, then it got forgotten in my closet. I’ve learned since then that Japanese-style calendars, where you tear off each page, are actually pretty cool. Each page you tear off can become it’s own poster to hang up wherever, and the calendar section is pretty small so you can ignore that it’s not the right month. XD For example, my dorm room right now:
(Ignore the fail Naruto calendar, I accidentally brought my 2007 calendar instead of my 2008 one when I moved in on Monday, but I put it up anyway in order to figure out how much space the 2008 one will take up.)
All the Prince of Tennis posters on the left wall are the ripped-off pages of my 2008 PoT calendar! 8D Which is currently on my wall at home. The last two pages will be put up here eventually.
So anyway. 2009 calendars. Yeah.
There are 3 calendars I want to get. I’m definitely getting at least two of these, I definitely need one for home and one for the dorm. Covers for all of these calendars came out recently, so- let’s take a look! 8D
First up, Prince of Tennis!
This one’s a definite YES! XD Need more Prince of Tennis posters. This year, we had random moments such as Chitose telling Kirihara that “Kirihara + yellow paint = TACHIBANA 8DD”, and Kaidou and Mizuki on a date at Rikkai Cafe (with Jirou getting a huge-ass parfait in the background =D). What crack will we find next year?? I can’t WAIT for previews of this one! I remember last year when I first saw previews, for the Seigaku page (with Ooishi, Eiji, and Momo discussing doubles strategies with Fuji and Taka on the other side of the net) I thought Ooishi was Shishido cause of the backwards hat. XDDDD OOISHI PLEASE TAKE THAT OFF XD
As for the cover? Of course my eyes were immediately drawn to Eiji, but doesn’t that always happen with me? XD I feel like his arm (WTF WHY DID I JUST TYPE “her”?? XDDDDD) blends into Tezuka’s arm because of their jackets being the exact same color- this is very BAD! XD I had to look really closely to figure out what was going on there, and even though now I see the real outline, whenever I look at the picture it doesn’t really show up right away and so Eiji looks really weird. Kaidou’s face looks weird too. XD Also, serious Fuji is serious.
Sadly, unlike last year, they don’t have a listing on the front of who’s in each page, so who knows? I really can’t wait to see previews for this, it comes out October 25th so…I don’t remember when they were out last year. o_x Although I do remember that I couldn’t decide between the anime calendar or the manga calendar, I went with the anime due to the crack pages and I decided I’d get the manga one for 2009 but guess what? NO POT MANGA CALENDAR THIS YEAR! D:
Second! Kamen Rider Kiva!
XD This one will go up at home, the PoT one will be at the dorm. Although, if it has hot pictures of Seto, those pages will go up at the dorm after they’re ripped off of the calendar at home. Just the ones of Kiva or IXA won’t end up in the dorm. XD
Kiva has been my addiction lately, lol. Looove it soo much. XD
Last! Morning Musume!
This one was originally the “maybe” of the three, but now I really want to get it after seeing the cover…should I get all three…? It’s Morning Musume after all…
I’ll probably wait on previews for this one. If it’s good, I’ll definitely get it. XD
I asked my mom about getting calendars the other day, cause I saw a lot at Borders, and she said “isn’t it something you can get for your birthday or Christmas?” NO I don’t wanna wait that long! XDD They come out in October…(actually, the Momusu one comes out this month…)
