Michishige Sayumi To Voice A Character In An MMO Titled “Dragon Nest”

15 08 2011

Michishige Sayumi attended a convention for an MMO RPG game titled Dragon Nest where she cosplayed as a character she will voice called Harori.

I didn’t expect to see a Momusu member voice a character for an MMO sometime soon so I was quite surprised about this news, even more because it’s Sayu, although I’m really happy to see that she will since it give’s her a chance to promote herself a bit more by voicing a character in a game.

Her character seems to be based on the name for Hello! Project (the Haro in Hello! Project) although I’m not 100% sure that it is, but the description of the character is that she’s an “Idol God” which is a pretty impressive description since it really gives her character an amazing look, and while we haven’t seen any other images of the character apart from the cardboard cutout at the event and from the site I really look forward to finding out just what kind of role she will play in the game.

Her cosplay of the character is really precise and while she could have simply attended the convention without really dressing up as her character I am glad to see that she did since it gives fans who play the game a chance to relate her voice to the character.

If anyone is curious as to how the character will sound then please check out the Hangame link at the bottom of the post and click the pink button so you can hear a sample of Sayu introducing herself to everyone in her character’s voice (which not surprisingly sounds almost exactly like her normal voice).

Hopefully anyone who is interested or who is already playing the MMO looks forward to the update with Sayu’s character, although for now I’m really happy to see that Sayu gets to voice a character in a game.

According to the GirlsNews report the new character will be available by 8/24.

Michishige Sayumi’s 8th PB Announced

2 08 2011

According to a recent post on her blog, Michishige Sayumi has begun photo shooting for her next PB, which is currently untitled.

This hasn’t been confirmed by Wanibooks yet but since Sayu already mentioned it directly in her blog surrounded by golden sparkles it’s pretty safe to say that we will see it for sure, probably sometime in the next few months since she mentioned that they have just started the shoot, which still means that they have to complete the rest of the shoot, edit the photos, make the cover, etc.

It’s rare to see members announcing their PBs before they are announced, but it’s great to see that she did reveal it since we can look forward to yet another amazing Sayu PB release, and even though we don’t have a theme for the PB or any other info it should be fun to see just how this new release turns out.

We should get a date for the release in the next few weeks once Wanibooks confirms it so I look forward to finding out since Sayu never disappoints with her releases.

The release date hasn’t been announced.

Sayumi, Reina, and Aika FC Bus Tour Destination Changed

16 04 2011

Sayumi, Reina, and Aika’s Bus FC Bus Tour on 5/28 which was scheduled to go to Chiba, Boso will now instead go to Shizuoka, Tokai and it will be titled Morning Days~Happy Holiday~ Sayu, Reina, Aika Fanclub Tour in Tokai.

The destination was changed over concern of safety over aftershocks and side effects of the recent earthquakes.

I’m glad to see that they have decided to change the destination for this bus tour since safety of all the fans who will attend the event as well as the safety of each one of the members is very important, and while some fans might be a bit disappointed it’s great to see that they only changed the destination and didn’t cancel the event.

Most fans probably won’t care that much since an event with Sayu, Reina, and Mitsui in any place seems to be a fans dream come true, but I hope we can get fan reports about the event to see if everything went smoothly once it happens.

Most likely staff is busy planning out interesting events for fans to enjoy in the new destination so hopefully many fans are looking forward to the new destination and the event.

The bus tour will be on 5/28 ~29.

Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina, Mitsui Aika FC Bus Tour Details Released

4 03 2011

Details about Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina and Mitsui Aika’s FC Bus Tour have been released.

The title for the bus tour has been revealed to be ~ Morning Days Happy Holiday ~ Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina, Mistui Aika Fan Club Tour in Bousou.

The title is really interesting since it refers to a school theme with the “holiday” mention, and on the promotional poster, we get to see the drawing of a school bus where the initials of each girl are written on, and the whole theme is really ineteresting and will definitly attract fans to find out more about this event.

Also, this being the first event of Aika with the remaining 6th generation members, it will most probably attarct the curiosity of some fans to see how Aika will react with the other 2 girls, and get to see them interact.

The bus tour will take place on 5/28-29.

Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina and Mitsui Aika FC Bus Tour Announced

28 02 2011

Tanaka Reina and Morning Musume’s manger announced that Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina and Mitsui Aika will be holding a fanclub tour.

I’m surprised and somewhat confused as to why they announced one for these Sayu, Reina and Aika. With 9th gen still be new to the group I was thinking that UFA might want to concentrate on promoting 9th gen a bit more. Also instead of promoting a new member with an older member they chose three of the old members. For example instead of doing a tour with these three they could’ve done a tour with Reina, Aika and Ikuta Erina and grow the fanbase for 9th gen. Regardless of that I’m glad that Sayu, Reina and Aika are getting a chance to do a bus tour.

Hopefully all fans in Japan are available to attend and enjoy their trip with Sayu, Reina and Aika.

The bus tour will be from 5/28-5/29.

Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD “homey” Preview Released

4 02 2011

A preview for Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD titled homey has been released.

It seems that the slightly strange title did reference a theme having to do with a home since most of the video takes place in rooms of a house: a bedroom, the living room, and a dining room where we get to see Sayu in three different outfits posing and looking at the camera, and while it is too short I loved every second of it since Sayu looks incredible in all of the shots.

The preview starts off with Sayu in a red shirt and cute shorts where she looks at the camera while in a bedroom where she spins and poses, and if you remember this outfit appeared in the preview pic on the e-lineup site and after seeing the shot I am still impressed with how great she looks since the red shirt really makes her stand out in the bright room.

The second shot features Sayu in a white shirt and a blue skirt posing in a room and outside in a garden, and apart from the bright setting I loved the many smiling close-ups we got to see of Sayu since the light from the window really made her shine.

The third shot features Sayu in a black elegant dress in a dining room where she simply stares at the camera for the first part, although the other half of the shot features Sayu smiling while laying down on a sofa where she closes a curtain and the video ends, and without a doubt this is my favorite shot of the video (along with the 2nd) since Sayu looks amazingly beautiful in the elegant black dress.

Overall the preview is one of the best I have seen from the e-Hello! series since Sayu looks incredibly pretty in all of the shots and while I might be biased to Sayu (for obvious reasons) I am sure that many fans will agree with me that Sayu looks amazing in the video.

I encourage everyone that can to buy a copy of the DVD since this release, along with all of the other previous e-Hello! DVDs, are amazing releases that all fans will enjoy.

The DVD will be up for preorder from now until 2/11.

Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD Titled “homey”

3 02 2011

The title for Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD has been revealed to be homey.

When I found out there was going to be an e-Hello! DVD for Sayu I though that it would have a cute name to match up with her cute looks, but I was a bit disappointed when I found out the title would be homey since it sounds a bit too different from her image.

From what I understand the title might refer to the DVD having a “home” theme, and it seems that it will since the picture on the e-lineup site features Sayu smiling while on a bed in a comfy house, but I would have liked to see them use a different title since the title sounds a bit strange (not bad, but slightly different in a way).

We should get the preview for the DVD in the following days so I look forward to finding out if the DVD will have a “home” theme or something similar.

The DVD will be up for preorder from now until 2/11.

Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD Announced

2 02 2011

Michishige Sayumi’s e-Hello! DVD, currently untitled, has been announced.

I’m impressed to see UFA release the DVDs so fast since just yesterday we got to see a preview for Reina’s DVD and now we get the announcement for Sayu’s e-Hello! DVD which is great news since all of Sayu’s DVDs are amazing and while we don’t have a title or a preview yet I am looking forward to finding out what outfits she will use.

There doesn’t seem to be any description of the DVD on the site, which is somewhat strange since even Reina’s DVD had a small sentence with a few hints about the content, but the amount of DVDs being released might have made it easier to just add “Please enjoy the footage carefully” instead of a description.

It’s great to see that we still get a chance to enjoy a picture from the DVD since a picture is worth a thousand words, and I am amazed at how great the picture looks since we get to see Sayu in a shirt and short shorts (an outfit to sleep in during the summer days) on a bed, and like always Sayu doesn’t disappoint with her great pose and her pretty looks.

There wasn’t a description but the picture makes up for it by giving us a small taste of the DVD and I am amazed at how well the DVD looks so far, but hopefully we get to see a preview and a title soon so we can find out more about the release.

If they follow the same pattern as Reina’s DVD we should see a preview in a few days (about four) so I look forward to finding out what outfits she will use and what kind of theme it will have.

The DVD will be up for preorder on the e-Lineup page from now until 2/11.

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.

Bigger “Hello! Hello! ~Memories~ Morning Musume Kamei Eri, Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina” PB Cover Released

13 11 2010

A bigger cover for the 6th generation special PB titled Hello! Hello! ~Memories~ Morning Musume Kamei Eri, Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina has been released.

I’m glad to see that a bigger cover has been released since we get to see the theme and pictures used a lot better, and from what I can tell the cover is very impressive (and a bit sad at the same time) since it features all of the Rokkies sitting in front of a dark sunset while looking at the camera with calm expressions.

Since the PBs theme is about reliving memories before Kamei graduates it was somewhat expected that we would see a calm and slightly sad cover since that is most likely how they and many fans feel about the graduation, but I have to admit that I really like the way the theme looks since the title even has a similar “memories” theme since it is featured in gold cursive letters.

As for the Rokkies, they each have a calm expression on their face as they sit next to each other in front of a dark sunset and for the most part I am happy to see that they chose this cover since the mood of the PB along with the setting match the feelings of many fans.

Along with the cover here are a few previews (since the PB was already released):

From what we can see they are wearing the Rival Survival outfits, which is somewhat surprising but a nice touch since they are the outfits for their last tour together, apart from that there were many mentions from fans that the PB focuses more on casual shots and not bikini shots, which is a nice touch since most fans would have wanted to see a PB with pictures of the girls in normal clothing.

The previews above are all very impressive, especially the group shot since they are wearing the outfits for the tour in a forest, but I love the way each individual shot looks since they feature very impressive poses such as Kamei in front of some stairs, Sayu resting on the floor, and Reina posing in the middle of a road.

Overall the PB is very impressive since the calm but sad cover of the PB along with many casual shots of the girls are a great combination for a memory-filled PB, and even though we haven’t seen many pictures from the PB itself it seems like a must-have PB for Rokkie and Momusu fans alike.

Hopefully many fans buy the PB since it seems like an amazing release.

The PB was released on 11/12.
