Morning Musume – “Onna Gokoro to Nanto Yara” Radio Preview Released

28 11 2010

A preview for one of the tracks from Morning Musume’s 11th album titled Onna Gokoro to Nanto Yara has been released.

Like most previews we only get to listen to half of the song until the host (this time Sayu) pauses the song, but it does give us a pretty good idea of what the song is about and I have to admit that I am very impressed with what I have heard so far.

The song starts with a cute instrumental followed by vocals that go along with the beat (including interesting solos from Gaki and Ai among others), and for the most part I am impressed with how great it sounds since everything, from the guitar and the other instruments to the vocals, all combine perfectly to make a catchy and unique song.

Overall the song is a bit LQ to fully enjoy but the song is still very impressive since it features an upbeat cute instrumental along with amazing vocals that go along with the beat of the song.

Hopefully fans who enjoyed the preview buy a copy of the album since it looks like an incredible release so far.

The release date is set for 12/1.

Okai Chisato Releases A Single On Itunes

28 11 2010

Okai Chisato covered Matsuura Aya’s Love Namida Iro and it has been released on iTunes.

I’m amazed to say the least that after her huge success on Youtube by dance covering C-ute songs in a similar way to many fans she has gone as far as to release covers of other H!P artists on iTunes, and even though it is only one song so far I wouldn’t be surprised to see more songs being released in the future.

The cover was featured along with a dance cover on the video below, and even though it is obvious that she is singing live during the video, the solo single that was released on iTunes is of much better quality and it was most likely recorded in a studio (or at least processed) since the singing is very impressing.

Hopefully all Chisa fans buy her song on iTunes (it’s only $1.00) since it will make it more likely that we will see more solo songs from her in the future.

Official Ichii Sayaka Gree Blog Opened

28 11 2010

Ichii Sayaka has opened up her own Gree blog.

I’m glad to see that more and more former H!P members are starting to open up blogs and Twitter accounts since it gives fans a chance to keep up with their lives outside of H!P and it also gives them a way where they can show support for their future activities.

So far Ichii seems to have blogged quite a bit, which is great since it means that fans can expect to see many entries in the future about her life everyday as well as her modeling career which should be very interesting to see.

Hopefully fans can follow her blog so that they can keep up with her daily life.

Okai Chisato “Chisato” Wanibooks Limited Edition PB Cover Released

28 11 2010

The limited edition Wanibooks cover for Okai Chisato’s 1st PB titled Chisato has been released.

If you remember the cover is exactly like the one that Chisato showed off during her Ustream broadcast, which is great news since it gives us a chance to check it out in better quality, and I have to admit that I am very impressed with how it looks since Chisa looks amazing.

Chisa is wearing a red bikini while posing in front of what appears to be a pool (not sure but we will most likely find out for sure when the PB is released), and despite being somewhat simple I really like how she looks since she has a cute smile and a great pose.

The title is in both Japanese and English, the Japanese characters in white behind her and the English characters in the form of red cursive letters, which is a nice touch since it gives the cover an elegant look as well as making the cover easy to find since the title is somewhat large.

Overall the cover is amazing since it features Chisa in a cute pose while smiling at the camera along with a large white title that is easy to see and stands out from among the other PBs.

Even though this isn’t the normal cover I do hope that we get to see the original cover soon, but hopefully fans can reserve a copy of the PB meanwhile.

The release date is set for 12/24.

Berryz Koubou’s Gekiharo Gekidan Stage Play #9 DVD Cover Released

28 11 2010

The cover for Berryz Koubou’s Gekihar Gekidan Stage Play #9 DVD has been released.

Since each member got a chance to play the lead actress at least once it’s not that surprising to see that the cover features a collage of the individual pictures of each one of the members wearing the police outfit, and even though the cover is a bit small I am very impressed with how it looks.

Since I haven’t seen the play I can’t comment on what to expect from the DVD, but fans who have read reviews or seen it themselves will most likely be pleased to finally be able to buy a DVD with the play since it does seem like the story is interesting.

Hopefully fans who are interested in the play decide to buy the DVD since the cover looks very impressive.

The release date is set for 12/15.
