Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Spring PB Cover Released

23 07 2011

The cover for the PB release of Dream Morning Musume’s Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai ~Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~ has been released.

I was a bit surprised to see that the cover for the PB release is a bit similar to the one Momusu will have since apart from the info and the color of the bottom bar they have the exact same layout (most likely because BLT seems to overuse the layout with all of it’s releases): black bar at the top, the color of the letters are the same as the Momusu PB, a bar on the bottom with info about the content, as well as a vertical picture of the concert, but despite that it’s still a great cover.

We get to see all 10 members of Dream Morning Musume posing and singing while in concert, and while the picture could have been a bit better I was impressed with the energy coming from some of the members, mainly Rika, Koha, Yuko, as well as Yaguchi, and while we haven’t seen any previews it seems like this PB will be amazing since the bottom right picture does a good job of showing of the intensity of the event.

We should get previews sometime soon, or if not then there will most likely be a few around the beginning of August, but hopefully fans reserve their copy of the PB since it’s the perfect way to enjoy the concert fully.

The release date is set for 8/3.

Fujimoto Miki Models For “a.g. plus”

3 06 2011

Fujimoto Miki models for “a.g. plus”.

At first I though it was a modeling agency, I thought that she might be going towards modeling for her career. However after checking out the website a bit the company is actually a clothing company.

I like a lot of the outfits Mikitty poses with, it’s a mature-casual type outfit and it works really well with her. Even the photos taken have a mature-casual type feel them, I think it’s mainly because of the colors of the photo that gives it this feel.

There is a photo gallery with about 10 photos for fans to enjoy on the site. I highly recommend all fans check them out since I don’t know how much longer they’ll be featured on the website.

Here’s a couple photos for now:

Fujimoto Miki- Promoting Scalp-D Shampoo

1 06 2011

Fujimoto Miki is promoting Scalp-D Shampoo.

While the work isn’t too exciting I’m glad to see that’s she’s trying some different work out there. From the photo gallery it looks like if she’s promoting the shampoo through a talk event but maybe afterwards a commercial comes out with Mikitty in it. I also wanted to say that the Mikitty’s white dress is really beautiful on her and it matches the event since everything is pink and white.

Here’s some pictures from the event:

It’s different from what we’re use to seeing of Mikitty but please continue to support Mikitty any way you can!

Fujimoto Miki To Open Up A Restaurant

24 02 2011

Fujimoto Miki has opened up a Yakiniku restaurant in Yokohama.

According to Miki all of the menu will be 99% off as a special discount on opening day.

After Yaguchi announced the opening of her restaurant a few months ago I somewhat expected to see other members follow into the restaurant business and set up their own places as well, and I’m glad to see that Miki did since fans can enjoy a great meal while showing their support at the same time.

The offer at opening day with 99% off seems incredibly tempting and it was most likely done to attract customers and make sure everyone gets a chance to try the Yakiniku so that they become regular customers, and I’m happy to see that they decided to offer the discount since everyone can go and try out the food without having to worry about paying that much to sample.

Hopefully fans around the area get a chance to attend the opening event for the restaurant since the offer is too good to pass up.

The restaurant will open on 2/26.

Dream Morning Musume Announces Fall Concert Currently “Untitled”

28 01 2011

Dream Morning Musume announced that they will be holding a Fall concert currently “Untitled

The news is on their official site and the concerts will start somewhere in September 2011.

Other than that announcement nothing else is known. I’m really surprised to hear that they’ve announced another concert before the 1st one even began! Hearing about another concert I’m also excited because the Fall concert could be used to promote the album, so if there are any new songs we’ll be able to hear it performed live, which I find more better than the studio version.

Pre-sale tickets for the concert is currently available and the concert is planned for 9/2011.

Dream Morning Musume Announces Album Titled “Dream 1”

28 01 2011

Dream Morning Musume announced at a press conference that they will be releasing their 1st album titled “Dream 1“.

There will be two versions, the limited and regular edition. The limited edition comes with a DVD while the regular comes with a postcard.

Hearing that they announced an album I’m really excited to hear what kind of songs they have on it, I’m hoping they’ll release some new songs but it’s also possible that they will be doing covers so we’ll see how that turns out.

Also originally Tsuji Nozomi had been listed as a member but after giving birth and all of course she wouldn’t have been included in the concerts but I’m wondering if she will be participating in the album. As for the recent graduates, they most likely won’t be participating in this album since Junjun and Linlin have returned to China and Kamei will probably still be recovering. But on their official site it says that the line up may change at the concert so it’s possible that they may change who participates on the album.

Overall I’m looking forward to seeing Dream Morning Musume continue their activity and I hope that their concert as well as their album is a success!

The album will be released on 4/20.

Morning Musume OG Concert Tour 2011 Announced

24 12 2010

A concert tour for Morning Musume OG titled Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai ~Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~ has been announced.

Acording to the announcement Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori, Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari, Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Tsuji Nozomi, Ogawa Makoto, Fujimoto Miki, and Kusumi Koharu will be participating in the concert tour (basically everyone except Konno Asami).

I’m glad to see that they decided to do a Morning Musume OG tour since it has been a while since we last saw them perform together, and while Konno won’t be able to perform (most likely because she is busy at training for her TV Tokyo announcer job) it will most likely be a great tour for all OG fans since we will be able to see most of OG performing H!P classics.

We don’t know what the setlist may contain but it will most likely have many solo songs from each one of the solo artists (Nakazawa, Iida, Abe, Yaguchi, and Fujimoto) as well as some group performances, which should be very interesting to see since we will get a chance to hear many great songs being performed by OG members.

For now we don’t know what to expect from the tour, but hopefully OG fans buy their tickets to enjoy this unique and impressing concert tour when it starts in April.

The concert will feature the following dates:

04/23 Chuukyou Daigaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall 15:00 / 18:30
