Tokunaga Chinami 1st PB Announced, Titled “Chinami”

31 08 2009

Chinami "Chinami" 1341

Tokunaga Chinami’s 1st PB titled Chinami has been announced for release under Kids Net. The PB is in A4 size (about 210 mm x 297 mm) and will include a Making Of DVD.

I am really happy that they finally are starting to release PB’s for members that don’t have one and hopefully this trend continues some more (still waiting for a Shimizu PB).

The cover looks really good, although the only thing that I don’t like that much is the giant “Chinami” on the side which looked like a watermark at first. Chinami looks great in a green bikini, and apart from the somewhat strange looking text they used for the title I really like it a lot (this from a biased Chinami fan).

The news came out of no where, somewhat similar to Kumai’s PB, and it’s good to know that she is getting at least a handshake event on that day for her PB. Preview’s are going to be hopefully appearing soon so I’ll try and update with some when they are released.

The release date is set for 9/11.

Morning Musume’s 41st Single Announced, Titled “Kimagure Princess”

31 08 2009

Morning Musume 1292

Morning Musume’s 41st Single has been announced and the title is Kimagure Princess (translated it means something like “Moody Princess” or “Whimsical Princess”). The single will be released in Regular, Limited A, Limited B, and Limited C versions.

Limited A and B will have DVD’s (what version of the PV will be in what is still unknown), and Limited C will have 10 different covers (I’m guessing 9 solo covers and one group cover).

I’m surprised they are going to try to release 4 different versions, probably because of good sales for Nanchatte Renai. The C version is the most suprising, mostly because they are trying the “interchangeable covers” again (they used them in “Ambitious”, their 30th single), which could work now that Momusu is gaining popularity.

There is still another 2 months for release so we will probably get a preview in a month or so.

The release date for the single is 10/21 and the Single V’s release is on  10/28.

The release date for the single has been moved to 10/28, and the Single V’s release date has been changed to 11/4.

C-ute Alo Hello DVD and PB Announced

31 08 2009

C-ute 3123

The Alo Hello DVD and PB for C-ute’s trip to Hawaii has just been announced. Umeda will be included in the DVD for those of you wondering, and hopefully we will have some type of message from her.

From what I have heard the trip was a lot of fun, and hopefully we can get to see some fun challenges. The release date is 3 days after Umeda officially graduates so hopefully it can sell well.

The release date for both the DVD and PB is 10/28.

Hagiwara Mai 1st Solo DVD Announced

31 08 2009

Hagiwara Mai 1241

Hagiwara Mai’s 1st solo DVD has finally been announced. It was kind of expected once the PB was confirmed on UTB that she would have one so it’s good to see it’s true.

I’m somewhat curious about what Maimai could do (apart from bikini shots, if they are included), but most likely we will find out in the coming weeks.

The release date is set for 10/21.

Hangry & Angry are set to release a new album with 10 of their songs, including “Sadistic Dance”, “Shake Me”, “Lady Madonna”, “No Future”, “Kill Me Kiss Me (2009)”, “Angelia (2009), and “Giza Giza (2009)”.

I’m glad to see that the girls are finally releasing something after their last digital single. The 2009 next to the song titles probably mean that they recorded the songs again or that they changed the sound a bit, but we will have to wait and find out.

I will update with the titles of the other songs that will be included when they are released.

The release date is set for 11/11.

Yorosen Logo 1231

Volumes 3 and 4 of Yorosen have been announced. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the episodes it’s a good chance to catch up since they seem to be releasing 2 DVD’s at a time.

I have no idea how many episodes are in each volume but most likely it is the same amount as the first DVD (I have no idea how many are on those either).

The release date is set for 10/28.

Buono – “Take It Easy!” Single V Cover Released

30 08 2009

Buono Take It Easy Single V

The cover for Buono’s 8th Single V for Take It Easy! has been released. The cover looks great, and I really like how they included a bit of the scenery like the single covers.

Nothing that different about the cover and the single covers, except Airi is hugging Momo and we can see Miyabi’s “MY BOY” earrings better, apart from all that I’m glad to see the cover looks good.

The release date is set for 9/2.
