Shuukan Yoro! Vol 67

26 11 2010

Site Updates: As you might have noticed the site has passed the 975,000 mark and is rapidly on its way to the 1,000,000 mark, so thank you to everyone who visits the site!

According to from what I can tell the blog should get its 1,000,000 visitor next week (Friday or Saturday), which means that the great day is less than a week away, and even though I will be busy with school (since next week is the last week, and the week after that is final exam week) I will have the surprises ready for the great day.

I am keeping much of it a secret so we will have to wait until the big day for the reveal, but I do have most of it done which is great since I have been falling behind with some posts (I got really sick a few days ago and I had to put most of the work on hold).

Apart from that I would like to thank everyone who visits the site regularly since it is thanks to you that this blog will get its 1,000,000 mark in less than 2 years, so thank you and I look forward to revealing the many surprises next week!

As for the site itself, I haven’t had a chance to update the Upcoming Releases section since I got sick, but when I get better I plan on updating the Releases and Birthday sections, and after I finish school for the semester I plan on updating the Discography section since it has been a while since I have updated it.

Polls: The winner for this poll was Tanaka Reina with 469 votes (53%), congratulations Reina! Sugaya Risako came in second with 236 votes (27%) and Mano Erina came in third place with 173 votes (20%).

There was a total of 878 votes for this poll.

Congratulations Reina!

For the most part the winner was somewhat obvious from the start since Reina quickly jumped to first place and kept her spot throughout the week, and even though Risako and Mano didn’t get quite that big of a percentage of the total votes I am glad that they managed to get enough.

Hopefully Mano and Risako win in their next poll, but for now congratulations to Reina!

Apart from that it is time once again to pick members for the next series of polls, so if anyone has a suggestion please comment below and I will try and fit in the poll (first come first serve, which means that if someone suggests a poll with a member first they will have priority).

Just a reminder for those who don’t vote: If you do have a chance please vote since it only takes two clicks and you help your favorite member appear as member of the week!

Next poll will feature Mitsui Aika, Fukuda Kanon, Ogawa Saki so everyone please vote for the next H!P member of the week!

To make it easier for fans I will provide the direct link to the poll HERE.

Please vote!

Reviews: I did have planned to release the review before Thanksgiving but since I got really sick I couldn’t work on anything, so I will have to push the date back a bit due to this unforeseen occurrence.

Next week should be when the site passes the 1,000,000 mark so I hope to have it done by then, and even though I don’t want to reveal that much I am planning on revealing a surprise related to this section in a week, so please look forward to that!

I will update the Twitter when the review is released so please look forward to it!

Shuukan Yoro: It’s the 3rd day of Kamei Eri’s week about “Tuna”.

Today’s theme is the pricing of tuna, and as suggested we get to find out more interesting trivia about tuna, such as the highest price paid for tuna and how much tuna Japanese people eat.

For the most part the episode is somewhat calm since most of the episode deals with guessing prices, but I have to admit that the discussion at the end about “Chicken of the Sea” was interesting.

Shimizu Saki 1st PB and Solo DVD Announced

26 11 2010

Shimizu Saki revealed on her Serend blog that her first PB and solo DVD will released in January.

When I first saw the news I was very surprised and excited since a Captain PB has been asked for by fans for many years, and since she finally revealed the news herself through her Serend blog it seemed like a great way for fans to congratulate her in her first PB.

The picture above was also released and it shows Captain wearing a cute white dress while posing in front of a beach, and even though it isn’t a picture from the PB it does give us a good idea at what one picture will look like, and I have to admit that I am very impressed.

Hopefully fans can reserve their copy of Captain’s PB when it is up for preorder but for now I’m really excited and happy to see that Captain will finally release a PB since she definitely deserves to have one.

With this release Berryz Koubou becomes the second H!P group to feature PBs for all of its members (the first being C-ute), so hopefully we can soon see a release for the other members who haven’t had one (Mitsui, Kanon, Ogawa, and Wada).

The release date is set for 1/12.

Official Arihara Kanna Twitter Account Opened

26 11 2010

Arihara Kanna has opened up a Twitter account.

Her first tweet was:

i am kanna!!! ^^Follow me^3^

I’m not that surprised to see that Kanna has opened up a Twitter account since it was just of matter of time until she joined Twitter, and since Erika joined a few days ago it was most likely a small push for Kanna to join too.

She hasn’t had a chance to tweet that much but so far she has tweeted in English and Japanese, and since she is very good friends with Erika I’m not that surprised to see that the few tweets that she has done include two replies to Erika, which is great since that means that they both keep up with each other.

Hopefully all Kanna fans get a chance to follow her account since it looks like she will use it constantly in the future.

The tracklist and cover for Morning Musume’s Event V for their 44th single titled Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game have been released.

Like most Event V’s we usually get to see a DVD featuring solo versions of the PV for each member, and this one is no exception since it contains just that, and even though that may be the case I have to admit that I look forward to the solo versions since the PVs were very interesting.

We will most likely get a chance to see the solo versions when the first release event occurs, so hopefully they turn out great since the song is already very impressing.

The release date is set for 11/28.

“Pucchi Best 11” CD and DVD Covers Released

26 11 2010

Left: CD, Right: DVD

The covers for Hello! Project’s annual compilation album titled Pucchi Best 11 have been released.

For the most part I really like the way that the covers look since they have a bright and colorful theme, and even though the themes are exactly alike (except for a change in color) I am impressed with the great theme that they have.

Each cover features the artists included in the album, for example the album features Momusu, Berryz, C-ute, S/mileage, Buono, Guardians 4, Lilpri, Ibu Himiru, Muten Musume and Kaito Reinya, while the DVD features everyone except Muten Musume and Kaito Reinya (since there are no videos of them included in the DVD).

Overall I am very impressed with how great the covers look since they have a bright and colorful theme, and even though they are almost similar I am impressed with how it turned out.

Hopefully fans preorder their copies of the album and/or DVD since this seems like a great release for all fans.

The release date is set for 12/15.
