New S/mileage Profile Pictures For “Warugaki 1”

17 11 2010

The official H!P profile page has updated with pictures of S/mileage in the outfits for their 1st album titled Warugaki 1.

When I first saw the outfits I was amazed at how well they look since they went for a bright white color for their outfits, and even though they have used skirts in most of their singles I really like the way everyone looks since they each stand out, despite having the same outfit look.

The outfit features a white long sleeve shirt and a white skirt with a white hat (which has some patches) along with a black and white bow tie and chains, and despite them being exactly alike I really like the way that they look on each member since it does seem like a great color for a first album release.

Apart from the outfits there doesn’t seem to be much of a change since they have the same hairstyles, but overall I really love the way that they match since white does look great on all of the members.

Hopefully all fans can pick up a cop yof the album when it is released since it seems like it will be a great release.

The release date is set for 12/8.

Berryz Koubou – “Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda!” Original PV In Hawaii Released

17 11 2010

An original PV in Hawaii for Berryz Koubou’s Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda! has been released. The PV is included in the Berryz Koubou Alo-Hello! 2 DVD.

Like the Morning Musume original PV for Genki Pika Pika I’m glad to see that they decided to include a PV for a Berryz Koubou single since it’s a great bonus for fans since they get a chance to see all of the members acting out the song in their own way, and even though it didn’t feature any choreographed moves I have to admit that I really liked it.

The PV features random shots of all of the girls singing along to the song on the beach in bikinis, and apart from the solo shots of each member there are group shots of all of the members playing around while one member sings, which is great as a DVD bonus since it shows off the creativity of the group.

Overall the PV is a great bonus which shows off the setting of the DVD as well as the creativity of each member, and even though there isn’t much choreography in the PV I really like the way the song’s theme matches the random shots of Berryz playing together.

Hopefully everyone can watch the PV as well as buy the DVD since it seems like a great release for Berryz fans.

Muten Musume – “Appare Kaiten Zushi!” Kura Sushi Original Short Ver. PV Released

17 11 2010

Short version’s of the original PV for Muten Musume’s single titled Appare Kaiten Zushi has been released.

For the most part the PV seems to be just CMs for the restaurant chain but I have to admit that I really like the way it looked since we got to see the chibi Muten Musume characters moving along to the music with many interesting graphics, and even though there doesn’t seem to be much of a story I really like the way that the settings and animations were done.

The main focus seems to be on Ai-chan and Sayu, which is surprising in some way since I would have thought they would show Reina off more, but since Sayu does appear in many regular TV shows and is known for being a popular member it was likely that she would be chosen as the second highlight.

Apart from that the PV is a bit too short to really tell much apart from it featuring random scenes of all of the members moving along to the music, but I really like the way the animations came out since they do look very professional.

Overall the PV is an interesting release since it features great animations set to the music, and even though the scenes seem to have been done at random I like the way that it looks since it does look like a great way to promote the single (it would have been great to have them a few weeks when the single was going to be released though).

Hopefully all fans check out both of the short PVs since they are really interesting, although I would suggest that you watch the longest PV preview (Short 2) since it includes the first PV and another new scene.

Morning Musume – “Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game” Single V Tracklist Released

17 11 2010

  1. Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game
  2. Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game (Another Dance Shot Ver.)
  3. Making Of

The tracklist for the Single V of Morning Musume’s 44th single titled Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game has been released.

As expected of most Single V releases we get to see the original PV along with an alternate version and the Making Of, and this release is no exception since we get to see the original version of Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game as well as a version called Another Dance Shot Ver. and the Making Of.

The Another Dance Shot Ver sounds very interesting since we already got a chance to check out the three dance shots in the PV, and even though we don’t really know what shot will be included I do look forward to finding out when a preview is released.

Overall the Single V looks like a great way to enjoy the PV and an extra dance shot, along with the Making Of for the album, so hopefully many fans pick it up when it is released.

The release date is set for 11/24.

Official Nakajima Saki Gree Blog Opened

17 11 2010

Nakajima Saki’s official Gree blog has been opened.

I was a bit surprised when I found out about Saki’s blog since she is the first C-ute member to have one and even though all members get a chance to post in the C-ute group blog it’s great to see that one member has finally gotten her own blog where she can update about her daily life for her fans to follow.

For now there aren’t that many posts on the blog, followers, or views (18,000 is a great number for a blog that has been opened for one day), but since it has just recently opened I expect to see the amount of followers and views increase during the next few weeks.

Hopefully all Saki fans with a Gree blog get a chance to follow her since it seems like a great way to check out news about C-ute as well as her daily life.

S/mileage – “Warugaki 1” Covers Released

17 11 2010

Left: Regular, Right: Limited

The covers for S/mileage’s 1st album titled Warugaki 1 have been released.

I was somewhat surprised when I first saw the album covers since it seems that they decided to go with two different album outfits, which is a great thing for fans since we get to see two different covers, and even though the “colorful paint on a white background” theme is used in both of them it seems like a great way to match the energy of the group.

The regular cover features S/mileage in white outfits jumping in front of a white background with paint marks on the bottom, and despite it having a simple theme I really like the way that all of the members look since it shows of their energy and enthusiasm (the white outfits also look great against the white background).

The Limited cover was released a few days ago and it features S/mileage in red checkered outfits in a close-up shot in front of a colorful background, and I really like this cover since it shows off all of the members in close detail as well as making the title of the album jump out a bit more.

Overall both of the covers are very impressing since they feature an interesting colorful theme with different outfits, and even though the themes are not that complex I like the way that they show off S/mileage since they are the center of attention in both of the covers.

Hopefully fans can pick up a copy of the album when it is released since this album looks amazing so far.

The release date is set for 12/8.
