New Date Added To Buono’s “Live Tour 2011 Summer ~Rock’n Buono! 4~”

2 06 2011

According to the June FC newsletter two new dates have been added to Buono’s next tour titled Buono! Live Tour 2011 Summer ~Rock’n Buono! 4~.

I was very surprised about the announcement since I didn’t expect to see any more additions to Buono’s concert tour (mostly because their tours are usually short and don’t have that many dates) but I’m happy to see that two additional concerts have been added for early September since fans can enjoy another performance from this great group.

So far there are 9 concerts planned for August and September, so fans will most likely be very happy since those who can’t go to the August dates can go to the September performances, and since the tour will end later that gives fans a chance to go to one more Buono concert before fall ends.

It’s still too early to find out if there will be more additions to the tour but since we are about 2 months away from the start it seems like this is the final schedule, but meanwhile I encourage Buono fans to plan out their schedule if they haven’t done so already since this tour will most likely be among the best this year.

Here is the schedule so far:

Date Venue Concert starts
08/20 Nanba Hatch (Osaka) 14:00 / 18:00
08/22 Zepp Nagoya (Aichi) 19:00
08/27 Yokohama Blitz (Kanagawa) 15:00 / 18:30
08/28 Yokohama Blitz (Kanagawa) 14:00 / 18:00
09/03 DRUM LOGOS (Fukuoka) 14:45 / 18:00

“S/mileage Concert Tour 2011 Aki” Announced

2 06 2011

S/mileage’s next concert tour tentatively titled S/mileage Concert Tour 2011 Aki has been announced.

Along with their tour we get a confirmation of the dates for their next concert tour, and as I mentioned in their live tour announcement it seems that we will see the dates for both alternate since they have a concert performance on 9/18, then a live performance on 9/24, then the final date for their tour on 10/8 followed by the last live date on 10/23.

It will be very interesting to see if the new member from their June auditions will be able to appear during the live or concert tour dates since many S/mileage fans will be wondering about the results, but we will most likely find out when they both start.

So far it seems that there will be about 4 dates, but since this has just been announced we will most likely see a few more dates being added as the months go by, so hopefully we get to see some great venues.

Hopefully S/mileage fans can attend both the live and concert tour dates since it seems like September and October will be full of great S/mileage concerts and lives.

Here is the schedule so far:

Date Venue Concert starts
09/10 Chukyo Daigaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall (Aichi) 15:00 /18:30
09/17 Shibuya C.C. Lemon Hall (Tokyo) 15:00 / 18:30
09/18 Shibuya C.C. Lemon Hall (Tokyo) 14:00 / 18:00
10/8 NHK Osaka Hall  (Osaka) 15:00 / 18:30

“S/mileage Live House Tour 2011 Autumn” Announced

2 06 2011

A short live tour for S/mileage tentatively titled S/mileage Live House Tour 2011 Autumn has been announced.

I was very surprised to see that a live tour was announced since their fall concert was announced during the same months, and with three shows a day it seems like the group will be quite busy throughout these two months.

Despite that it’s interesting to see that the lives will be in late September and late October since that means that we could see their new member perform sometime during the tour (most likely the October date since they might need some time to learn the songs), but we have no idea when the new member might debut so we will have to wait and see.

The live might only be on three days but it seems that S/mileage will have a very busy September and October since the dates for this live and the dates for their next tour seem to mix, but despite that fans will most likely be very excited since this means that there will be quite a lot of S/mileage events to attend.

Hopefully fans are already planning their schedule since it seems like there will be quite a lot of S/mileage events in the Fall.

Here are the dates:

Date Venue Concert starts
09/23 Hiroshima Club Quattro (Hiroshima) 13:15 / 16:00 / 18:45
09/24 Takamatsu Olive Hall (Kagawa) 13:15 / 16:00 / 18:45
10/23 Niigata LOTS (Niigata) 13:15 / 16:00 / 18:45

Morning Musume’s Concert Tour 2011 Fall Confirmed

2 06 2011

The schedule for Morning Musume’s Concert Tour 2011 Fall has been confirmed.

As expected the schedule has been confirmed, which is great news since fans can start to plan out their trips and what dates they will be able to go to the concert, and since this is Ai-chan’s last tour it will most likely be a very memorable moment for all fans.

There are only 10 performances so far, but we will most likely see a few more being added as the months go by since the actual tour doesn’t start until September, so hopefully we get a chance to see a few more being added so that fans can enjoy it even more.

So far there was only one change, that being NHK Hall in Osaka to the Kishiwada Shiritsu Hall in Osaka, but I’m glad to see that the final two dates for the Nippon Budokan have been confirmed since it is a big stage and the perfect way for fans to support Ai-chan once she graduates.

Hopefully fans can make it to at least one of the two final dates since that will most likely be when Ai-chan graduates (the final date will be the most popular for sure), so please reserve your tickets as soon as possible if you plan to attend.

Here is the schedule:

Date Venue Concert starts
09/03 Chuukyou Dai Gaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall (Aichi) 14:30 /18:30
09/04 Chuukyou Dai Gaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall (Aichi) 14:30 / 18:30
09/11 Kishiwada Shiritsu Nami Setsu Hall (Osaka) 15:00 / 18:30
09/25 Phoenix Plaza Hall (Fukui) 15:00 / 18:30
09/29 Nippon Budokan (Tokyo) 18:30
09/30 Nippon Budokan (Tokyo) 18:00

Berryz Koubou – “Ai no Dangan” Single V Cover And Tracklist Released

2 06 2011

The Single V’s cover and tracklist for Berryz Koubou’s 26th single titled Ai no Dangan have been released.


1. Ai no Dangan

2. Ai no Dangan (Another Dance Shot Ver.)

2. Making Of

First of all, I have to say that I’m really amazed by the tracklist since it will be one amazing release from Berryz, since it will include 3 most essential things which are the PV, the most attractive alternate version which is the amazing dance shot with all of the effects with the screen, close-ups while dancing, etc.. and a nice touch for fans is the making of since it gives an opportunity to see the overall setting of the filming

As for the cover, I’m impressed with how it looks since they somehow managed to stay in the theme of the previous covers but with giving it a twist to make it look cooler and different (unlike Momusu’s Only You), with having the same digital background, but adding pink light effects to match the title and having the members take a whole different line-up with Momoko in front along with Maasa, while Miyabi and Risako are a little bit smaller.

Overall, I have to say that this will yet be another awesome Single V release from Berryz so I highly encourage everyone to order a copy.

The release date is set for 6/22.

Mano Erina – “From Days” DVD Cover Released

2 06 2011

The cover for Mano Erina’s 3rd solo DVD titled From Days has been released.

The cover features Mano smiling cutely at the camera while wearing a blue bikini and posing in a beach setting, and even though I prefer a cover with a casual outfit I have to admit that I am amazed at how great Mano looks on the cover since it seems like a cute and simple theme that fits her personality.

I am pretty impressed with the cover since we get to see not only an outfit that she will be using in the DVD but also the setting for a scene, and even though the somewhat simple but cute boxes around the title letters and the “Erina Mano DVD” under it in the form of a smile could have looked a bit better I really like how the cover came out since Mano looks incredible as always.

Overall the cover is pretty amazing since we get to see Mano’s cute smile as well as a blue bikini she will be wearing in the DVD, and despite the simple but cute title art the cover turned out to be an impressive and eye catching hint at the great footage that will be included.

Hopefully we get to see a preview for the DVD sometime soon since the release is a few weeks away, but for now I recommend Mano fans reserve their copy of the DVD as well as the PB since this seems like it will be another amazing Mano release.

The release date is set for 6/22.

Kitahara Sayaka – “Yappa Seishun” PV Preview Released

2 06 2011

The PV preview for Kitahara Sayaka’s 1st single titled Yappa Seishun has been released.

All of the PV takes place in a filming studio since it seems that they intended to show the props and accessories that are lying on the ground as well as the lightning and the blue screen Sayaka and Yossie are posing against, while zooming in and out, and I have to say that I really like this setting since it’s unusual and makes us feel more the vibe of the song (it makes it look more realistic).

From the preview, there is 3 scenes: one of Sayaka in the blue fluffy outfit from the Limited edition cover against a black wall with lights where she is dancing, another shot is of Sayaka in her Regular edition outfit in the props room setting singing and doing some dance moves, and the last shows us Sayaka and Hitomi, as player and coach shooting footballs on a goal, doing various acts…

I have to say that even though the PV seems to lack various settings, it’s still pretty interesting since they managed to stay in the theme of the anime (football), while making it cute and fitting to the song in some kind of way, and I’m really glad to see how well Sayaka did for her first solo videos since she did react pretty well with the camera, and Yossie.

Hopefully everyone can watch it and support Sayaka in her upcoming career.

The release date is set for 6/22.
