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.

Ogawa Makoto Casted In Stage Play Titled “Black Camellia ~ Japanese Vampire~”

8 06 2011

According to her blog, Mako has been casted in the stage play titled “Black Camellia ~ Japanese Vampire~”

As you can tell by the title, the stage play is a vampire theme. A lot of you may wonder why so many of H!P members are doing works related to vampires. According to Sohee on JPCY, vampires are the “new thing” so we shouldn’t be too surprised that it’s another vampire theme.

Regardless of that though the summary of the show says it’s a “beautiful vampire fight in magnificent dance.” I’m assuming that means it’s a musical stage play and if that’s true I’m glad for Mako since her last musical stage play was awhile ago.

Also it hasn’t been revealed about what part Mako was casted in but I’m hoping she was casted as a main character, or at least she has an important role in the play.

Tickets are available for purchase through the Morning Musume Fan Club. Hopefully everyone can purchase a ticket in advance and support Mako.

The play will run from 7/16-7/24.

Official Ogawa Makoto Ameba Blog Opened

9 04 2011

Ogawa Makoto has opened up an Ameba Blog.

I was surprised to see that Makoto has finally opened up an Ameba blog since most fans might remember that she already had a mini blog that she has been using for quite a while, but I am glad that she has finally gotten an Ameba blog since it gives her a chance to post longer entries for fans to enjoy.

Instead of a short introduction post we get a short introduction sentence followed a long post about today’s Up Front charity event, and while this is a strange way of starting out a blog I am glad that she decided to encourage fans to check out the event before anything else, which might mean that she will post a bit more about herself in the next few days.

So far she has only done one post which is understandable since the blog has barely opened, but hopefully she updates regularly so that fans can check out her daily life and the activities she is doing.
