Shimizu Saki “Shimizu Saki” Wanibooks PB Cover Released

23 12 2010

The Wanibooks cover for Shimizu Saki’s 1st solo PB titled Shimizu Saki has been released.

This cover was released a while ago but we weren’t sure at 100% if it was the regular or the Wanibooks edition cover, but for now it seems it’s the Wanibooks cover, although the possibility of it being the regular PB is still on.

The cover feautures a simple yet amazing picture of Captain outdoors, posing in a really cute way in the sunshine, and the most surprising thing has to be the fact that she isn’t posing in a bikini, which is a really nice change although it could be disappointing for bikini-cover fans.

In the picture, Saki is looking calmly at the camera with her hand behind her head, wearing a nice buttoned deep blue blouse which suits her very well, and she is smiling peacefully toward us, and her simple attitude makes the cover really unique and attractive with this amazing picture of her.

As for the title art, it’s written in contrast with the green background behind it and is slowly fading away while coming closer to Saki, and the effects along with the curves of the title describes makes it really unique and I have to say I liked the many effects that combine perfectly with the awesome picture of Captain.

Overall the cover turned out to be better than I expected and I’m really happy to see this simple and unique cover that compliments Saki’s calm side. Even if we don’t know for sure which cover this is, we should get a confirmation soon.

I hope that Captain fans can pre-order and buy her PB to support her and discover all the great pictures it must contain.

The release date is set for 1/12.

Bijo Gaku Vol 3 & 4 DVD Announced

20 12 2010

Bijo Gaku’s 3rd and 4th DVD volumes have been announced.

I’m glad to see that after the first two volumes for the series were announced we get a chance to find out when the next two volumes will be released since it gives fans of the series a chance to check out the episodes again in DVD.

It seems that the 3rd volume will feature Mano content since she seems to be the only H!P member on the cover, while the 4th volume will feature Maimi, Sayu, Mitsui, Maimai, Captain, Kamei, Jun Jun, and Kumai, which is great since we get to see another exclusive DVD with one member and another with the groups doing various activites.

Hopefully fans of the series reserve their copy of the DVD since it seems like a great way for fans to enjoy the episodes once again.

The release date is set for 2/2.

Shimizu Saki’s 1st PB Titled “Shimizu Saki”

11 12 2010

The title for Shimizu Saki’s 1st PB has been revealed to be Shimizu Saki.

When I first read the title I was somewhat disappointed since the title doesn’t seem that creative at all, but since it is her first release it was expected that they would put her name as the title (although it’s the first time I have seen them put an entire name as the title).

Even though it might not be creative it seems like a great way for fans to quickly find her PB, and hopefully when the cover is released we can find out what kind of picture they used to relate to the title.

I would suggest Captain fans to reserve their copy of the PB since it seems like it will be an amazing release.

The release date is set for 1/12.

Shimizu Saki 1st Solo DVD Preview Released

4 12 2010

A preview for Shimizu Saki’s 1st solo DVD titled SAKI has been released.

For the most part the preview is amazing since we get to see Captain in various scenes and outfits such as in a bikini during the opening or in a dress near some trees, and even though it seemed a bit short I am impressed so far with the scenes we see since it does look promising.

The opening of the preview is unique since Captain jumps out from behind a pillar in a swimming pool wearing a checkered red and white bikini where she then poses and smiles at the camera, which happens throughout most of the preview except for a scene at the end where she takes off a white dress and then jumps and runs on a beach in a bikini (there’s also a slow motion scene).

Overall the preview is amazing since it features Captain smiling, posing, and playfully running in various outfits and scenes, and I have to admit that I am looking forward to the PB and DVD even more since the scenes look very impressing.

Hopefully Captain fans reserved their copy of the DVD and PB already.

The release date is set for 1/12.

Shimizu Saki’s 1st Solo DVD Titled “SAKI”

3 12 2010

The title for Shimizu Saki’s 1st solo DVD has been revealed to be SAKI.

I’m not that surprised that the title of the DVD is part of her name since that is usually the case,  but I have to admit that I really like it since it’s simple and catchy (although Captain would have been an interesting title).

Apart from that the image above was also released and it shows an amazing close-up of Saki while wearing a rainbow colored bikini, and even though it might be somewhat small it does look very impressing.

Overall the title isn’t that unique but it does a good job of sounding simple and catchy, and along with the preview above I am looking forward to this release.

Hopefully Saki fans have already reserved their copy of the PB and DVD.

The release date is set for 1/12.

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.

Shimizu Saki, Tokunaga Chinami and Kumai Yurina Arrive In Thailand

19 01 2010

Berryz Koubou members Shimizu Saki, Tokunaga Chinami and Kumai Yurina arrived in Thailand earlier today to promote their first concert in Bangkok. Ticket’s will be on sale to the general public soon (although roughly half of the sets are already booked through presale, especially the good seats).

It is great to see that they are promoting their concert well by sending members over to appear on TV and on radio since it probably means that they are trying their best to make their first concert in Thailand a great one.

There were also many fans at the airport to welcome them and here is one of the many videos that are up on Youtube (check out TIMMII97’s channel for more videos of the girls arriving at the airport).

This is the video of the show they appeared in:

Hopefully the seats for the concert sell well and we get a great concert since it would mean that Berryz Koubou’s first concert overseas was a great success (technically second if you count Korea).

Berryz Koubou’s First Live In Bangkok will occur on 3/27.
