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.

Cast/Character List For “Oosama Game” Released

7 07 2011

The cast and character list for “Oosama Game” has been released. Since the list is quite long I’m only listing any H!P related parts.

Honda Chiemi: Kumai Yurina
Iwamura Ria: Suzuki Airi
Shirokawa Mami : Sugaya Risako
Maruoka Kaori: Okai Chisato
Shimizu Tomoko: Sudou Maasa
Kamoshita Akemi : Tokunaga Chinami
Imoto Yuuko: Tsugunaga Momoko
Ueda Kana: Nakajima Saki
Miyazaki Emi: Natsuyaki Miyabi
Matsumoto Masami: Shimizu Saki
Ishii Satomi: Mori Saki
Hamura Reiko: Yajima Maimi
Kanazawa Miharu: Hagiwara Mai
Eimine Yuko: Yoshizawa Hitomi
(Thanks to AiяiLovεя at H!O)

We all know that Kumai and Airi were playing as the main character and from the cast list the other members are portraying their classmates. Even though the other members aren’t the main character their names in the list is higher up than I thought so that means they’re not that much of a minor character.

I’m also surprised that Mori Saki was included in the cast list, even though she’s listed at the bottom I wasn’t expecting her to make an appearance since she wasn’t noted when the movie was first announced. Regardless of that though Mori Saki has a lot of acting experience so she’s a great addition to the movie.

Even though the movie doesn’t release until the winter I hope a preview of more promotion pictures are released soon since this is something new for everyone.

EDIT: Here is an image from the manga featuring the characters so it should give us a good idea of how each one of the characters look:





Official Hangry & Angry Youtube Channel Opened

1 06 2011

The official Hangry & Angry Youtube Channel has opened.

So far there are only 2 videos uploaded. They’re both of Kill me Kiss me while one is the live version the other is the video clip. Since it just opened I wouldn’t expect too many videos but I’m sure more will be uploaded soon. Also I’m guessing since their Youtube channel opened about a month before the Japan Expo 2011 they may be uploading some footage from there.

Please support Rika Ishikawa and Hitomi Yoshizawa and check out the youtube page!

Hangry & Angry To Perform In Indonesia

25 04 2011

According to a release post by Clash Cosplay, Hangry & Angry will perform in Indonesia.

I was very surprised, to say the least, when I found out about this next overseas trip for Hangry & Angry since it has been quite some time since we last heard from them, that being Rika appearing at NYAF back in August or their tour around Europe back in March of last year.

Since they haven’t released new songs in quite some time it would be a great chance to do so since the publicity from the trip will most likely help, but they will most likely not release any new material since all news about them has been somewhat quite for the past year, although I still hope that they will since this group has a unique sound that most fans love.

Even though we haven’t gotten an official confirmation about their trip to Indonesia I am very excited to see that they will once again perform overseas since there are most likely many excited fans looking forward to their visit in July, so hopefully we get an official mention about this trip so that we can confirm and fans can begin to prepare for their appearance.

The appearance will be on 7/24 at Balai Kartini in Jakarta.

Yoshizawa Hitomi Holding Solo Fanclub Event

4 02 2011

Yoshizawa Hitomi will be holding a solo FC event.

I was really expecting Yossie to be holding a FC event for her birthday since Rika was having some event for her birthday too. There’s not a lot to report since anything can happen at FC events and we don’t know what she’ll be doing but I’m sure fans will enjoy whatever it is.

Her FC event will be 4/2.

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.
