Noto Arisa’s “a piece of Romance” Album Tracklist Released

14 12 2010

  1. Sekai de Hitotsu wo
  2. Wonderland wa Sugusoko ni!!
  3. Mayoi no Mori
  4. Konbini no Oniisan ni Hatsu Date wo Kokoromiru Uta
  5. Time Capsule

The tracklist for Noto Arisa’s 4th mini album titled a piece of Romance has been released. The album can only be purchased through STUDIO CUBE WEB SHOP.

I’m not that surprised to see that the album will only be sold in one store since that is what most of her past releases have been like, but despite that it is a great way for fans to buy a copy and to enjoy five more great songs with unique titles.

As for the tracks, they feature great names such as Time Capsule and Wonderland wa Sugosoko ni!! which sound interesting, and since the album was released a few days ago it should give fans a chance to buy the album immediately to enjoy the tracks.

Hopefully fans buy a copy of the album to support Noto.

The album was released on 12/12.

Noto Arisa 4th Album Announced, Titled “a piece of Romance”

30 11 2010

Noto Arisa has announced her 4th album titled a piece of Romance.

I’m glad to see that Noto is releasing another album, and despite being a bit confused as to why she keeps releasing albums and not singles I do have to admit that I do like many of the songs she has released so far, and it’s great that she has been releasing consistently since she does have many loyal fans.

Along with the announcement of her 4th album we got a chance to see the cover, which features Noto posing on a mirror while smiling at the camera with her name and the title of the album in cursive, and even though it might be simple I really love the way it looks since it focuses on her.

For now we haven’t heard any previews (we probably won’t until the album is released) but I do hope that we can see a tracklist soon to find out what kind of songs might be included.

The release date is set for 12/12 (at H!P shops).

Noto Arisa 2nd PB Announced, Titled “ARi02”

31 07 2010

Noto Arisa’s 2nd PB titled ARi02 has been announced.

I have only seen a few pictures from her previous PB but I have to admit that I’m looking forward to seeing this one as well since the previews above of her in a bikini all look incredible.

Most likely the PB will once again be exclusive to her appearances at an expo but I hope that we eventually get to see some non-expo releases from her since many of us would love to eventually get our hands on one of her PBs or many albums.

Despite that I hope that we get some previews soon since it would be great to see what other kind of theme it will have.

The release date is set for 8/14 (the same date for the release of her 3rd album).

Official “Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata” Site Updated

23 07 2010

The official site for the movie Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata featuring Sudou Maasa and Noto Arisa has been updated.

It was somewhat expected that we would see a new version of the site open after the trailer was released, but I was a bit surprised that they renewed the entire site by updating every page, including adding the trailer in a separate page, as well as a link to the official movie blog.

For the most part everything looks great, although one of the main highlights is the blog since it features some scenes from the actual filming of the movie. Here is the header for it:

As you can tell it’s only the image from the main site as well as some small circles featuring scenes from the movie, which isn’t much but since it will most likely be a temporary blog (until the movie is released) it was expected that they wouldn’t try that hard to make it stand out.

Apart from the blog, trailer, and new site renewal we also get some new profile pictures:

For the most part they seem pretty basic but I do like how Maasa looks in her school uniform as well as Nocchi’s somewhat unique pose, and even though it doesn’t really show us more images from the actual movie it does give us a chance to see them acting like themselves in different settings.

Overall the site looks even better than before with many images from the movie as well as updated profile images, the trailer for the movie, a link to the movie’s blog, as well as many other interesting sections about the movie.

Hopefully we get to see another trailer or more behind the scenes images soon since the movie looks great so far.

The movie will be released to theaters on 12/4.

“Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata” Movie Trailer Released

22 07 2010

A trailer for a movie titled Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata which features Sudou Maasa and Noto Arisa has been released.

So that everyone understands the trailer a bit more I decided to post the basic storyline of the movie that was released a while ago:

The story centers on Yakumo Atae, a first-year student who knows the hidden secret of his fearsome classmate Tsurugi Yabusame — while she is the school’s strongest girl, she is also a budding light novel author under the penname Mio Himemiya. Tsurugi is stuck in a huge slump while writing her new romantic comedy. Yakumo’s cousin Kokona Atae happens to be Tsurugi’s editor, and Kokona suggests that Yakumo and Tsurugi become a couple so that Tsurugi can know the experience of romance.

As you will most likely tell Maasa does play her “strongest girl” movie role perfectly since she has a very noticeable lower voice tone as well as a more rough character, and while the trailer is somewhat short I am convinced that Maasa did a great job acting for this movie.

Noto appears quite a few times throughout the trailer as well which is great since it means that we will see her many times throughout the movie, and while I didn’t really get to see her act that much because she usually just stood on the side I am glad that she at least stood out in one of the scenes (when she slaps the guy near the end).

Overall the movie trailer was incredible since it summarizes the movie plot while not giving away the ending, which somewhat leaves me with the desire to find out more about the movie. The great acting from Maasa, Noto and the entire cast was very impressing in the few minutes that were shown from the trailer so I really look forward to finding out more about this movie.

According to the description of the movie on the trailer it seems that the movie will be released in early December of this year at the Ikebukuro theater with sequential releases after that, so hopefully we soon get a chance to see some fan impressions of the movie as well as reviews from critics.

The release date is set for 12/4.

Noto Arisa 2nd Album “END OF THE GATE” Announced

13 07 2010

Noto Arisa’s 2nd album titled END OF THE GATE has been announced. The album will contain the theme song for Nomo-P Plastic Radio and other songs written and composed by Noto. It will be available at the Wonder Festival 2010 Summer.

Apart from the 2nd album announcement there will also be a 3rd album which will presented at Arista! Live (an event on 7/18 at Shibuya WOMB), although more details aren’t available.

I have to admit that I was very surprised when I read that she would release 2 albums within a month since it seems like a lot of releases in such a small amount of time, but I’m glad to see that she will continue to release songs since she is definitely a great singer.

Not much information about the tracklist for either album has been released, but most likely we will get a chance to find out in a few days or weeks since the release date for the 2nd album is in about 10 days, so hopefully we get previews and a full tracklist by then.

Meanwhile we do have a cover for the album which simply features Noto posing with sunglasses in front of a yellow background and while it may be simple it is still a cute picture of Noto for her cover.

I haven’t had a chance to hear her first album that well but from the few tracks I heard I was definitely impressed with her singing and I look forward to seeing what kind of songs she could have written.

Hopefully all Noto fans can get a chance to buy the albums since it will be a great way to show support.

The release date for her 2nd album is 7/25 and the release date for her 3rd album is 8/14.

Noto Arisa Has Opened Up A Twitter Account

13 05 2010

Noto Arisa has opened up an official Twitter account. Her first tweet was:

Something along the lines of “I started a Twitter~”

With the recent Twitter openings it was somewhat expected that we would see another one open soon, and interestingly enough it was opened by Noto who, as you might remember, is one of the few Up Front Eggs.

I haven’t been keeping up with Noto that much but I do know for a fact that she is is somewhat busy doing promotional events, and now that she has a Twitter account it will be easier to keep up with her.

So far she has tweeted 5 times, which is great news since it most likely means that she plans to use it quite a lot and her fans will have many interesting things to read about her day along with her blog.

I hope that everyone gets a chance to check out her Twitter, especially her fans, since it is a great way to find out more about her and her future events.
