The melody of this song suits the S/mileage image. A cheerful cute song seems to suit them always, just like now. Hope their future songs will be just like this cheerful one.

Long Time No News! C-ute Portion

1. Suzuki Airi – “Keitai Kanojo” DVD 
 The DVD for the Japanese horror drama titled "Keitai Kanojo" where Airi's in has been announced. This announcement provides a cover and some screenshots of the drama. The cover features Airi and her co-star Seika Taketomi(who plays as a ghost) holding a mysterious mobile phone.As for th screen shots, it already thrill us and excite us to watch this movie.
The DVD will be released this April 6.

2. Yajima Maimi – “Black Angels” DVD
The DVD for Maimi's movie entitled "Black Angels" has been announced. This one as well was announced along with the cover and some screen shots. It's good to hear that many idols from H!P has been part of a movie.
The cover features Maimi wearing a pinkish japanese fighting outfit with some weapons on her leg, with her co-star in front of her. I love Maimi's expression and the way she shows her importance to the movie. The screen shots makes me thrill again. Maimi's fighting pose with her facial expression looks stunning as always.
Hopefully fans will have their copy for this DVD. This will be released this coming April 27.

3. C-ute – “Kiss Me Aishiteru” Full Preview
A full radio rip preview for "Kiss Me Aishiteru" has been released. The song has a mature and cool tone as what Chisa said when they announced about this single. I love the starting of the song, it has a unique melody. Many parts of the song are being echoed by each of the members such as "nee" and "please" around the chorus. Many unique touches has been added too like "love me" and "kiss me" which makes the song show their uniqueness. This song reminds me of Morning Musume "Egao Yes Nude", the outfits as well, since it's purple.
As for the outfits, they got a golden upper and a purple shorts. It has a great combination of colors.  The shoes used are catchy, for a girl like me.

This single will be released this coming February 23.

Long Time No News! Berryz Koubou Portion

1. Sugaya Risako, Tsugunaga Momoko and Natsuyaki Miyabi’s solo e-Hello DVD
It was announced that Risako, Miyabi and Momoko will  have their own solo e-Hello DVD.

This announcement was announced separately, but I want to combine these three since it has an identical news. Miyabi's DVD entitled "Natural & Cool" suits her personality since she's cool and natural which brings interest to everyone. Momo's DVD entitled "Momo Play" sounds interesting too. It defines her cute personality. The description about this DVD says that it is something to do about cosplaying. Changing the "cos" into "momo" makes her DVD titled "Momo Play". Risako's DVD was entitled "Le Soleil" which means "The Sun". The title sounds elegant, and since her 'signature' has something to do with elegance, it's a great way to show it. The title is in a French language, and I love how it sounds like.

The release date for Risako and Miya's DVD will be set around February.
Momo's DVD will be up for preorder from now until January 30

2.Berryz Koubou 2010 Fall ~Beri Kou Fesu~ DVD Cover
The DVD cover for BK's 2010 Fall ~Beri Kou Fesu~ has been  released. This cover catches my attention because of it's uniqueness. The cover features a chalkboard where each of the BK members' photos attached with their names written. Above them was the concert tour's title and their 'school' badge in a baby pink color. 

The DVD will be released this February 9.

3. Berryz Koubou – “Heroine ni Narou ka!” LQ Preview 
A low quality preview for BK's 25th single entitled "Heroine ni Narou Ka!" has been released. It was from a performance of the H!P winter concert tour. The outfits as well has been shown. The song will be more about ladies since it has something about 'Heroine'. I also love the outfits, especially Miya's, since she has the most unique dress. 

Anyway, here's the preview

Long Time No News! Morning Musume portion

So, it's been a while since I updated this blog, and many news has been flowing. I wanted to share it with you guys but I've been so busy for the exam, and too many projects too. Finally, I already have a vacant time to update this blog.

So, this time, since many news are flowing around, I want to post an entry with the news of this group and that group (only in H!P of course). It'll be from the newest to the oldest news I missed. First, will be the Morning Musume.

1. Takahashi Ai Being the Lead Actress for the Valentine Drama "Koi Choco-Bitter Sweet Angel"
It's been announced that Ai-chan will be the lead actress for this Valentine Drama entitled "Koi Choco- Bitter Sweet Angel" (Eng: Chocolate Love-Bitter Sweet Angel). It's good to hear that Ai-chan will be part of a drama, a valentine drama, so it might be related to some romance and love. Her co-star is Sakurada Dori. 

Ai-chan's also in a conference with Sakurada Dori to promote the drama.There are some photos taken during the conference too.

and there's a short preview of this valentine drama:

2. 9th Generation Members First Official Photos
The awaited official profile pictures for the MM 9th Generation Members has been added to the H!P site. It's great to see the new gen profile pictures right now, it makes fans know them a lot more better.

The four members got a very incredibly cute pose. Mizuki looks a lot more professional with her poses. Erina really showing her modelling skills. Kanon's the best one, she smiles innocently cute. Riho has a lot of confidence just by looking at her picture. 

The members are looking great with their very first official profile pictures. Anyway, goodluck for them to the future. Hopefully, they'll start a very good beginning.

3.Takahashi Ai Graduating from Morning Musume and Hello!Project
This news has been spread out around the whole world, but I still want to share this to you guys. 
During the H!P concert last January 8, 2011, there's been an announcement made about Ai-chan who'll graduate in the end of Morning Musume's Autumn Concert. 

Here's Tsunku's Statement
This is the comment regarding Takahashi Ai’s graduation from Morning Musume 
Thank you for your continual support as always.
As announced directly herself on the stage of January 9th’s show at Nakano Sunplaza,
5th generation member, Takahashi Ai will be graduating from both Morning Musume and Hello! Project in Morning Musume’s concert tour this fall.
When the proposal for Kamei Eri’s graduation was made last year,
I told Takahashi Ai, “It’s about time you should consider the timing of your own graduation and what you want to pursuit afterward” as an advice.
The 5th generation members will have joined Morning Musume for 10 years.
Takahashi Ai is the 6th leader and has been in this position for 3 years and 7 months.
Takahashi Ai holds the record for being the longest in the group and the longest to hold the leader position.
Looking back, she has honestly carried the responsibility for all this time.
(In no disrespect to all former members and leaders of the group…excuse me)
I have talked with her about various things, such as her activities afterward
As announced in the new year concert, her graduation will be in Morning Musume’s Autumn concert tour,
this was the right time to make the announcement.
Since there are still more than half a year to go,
the 9th generation members have to familiarize themselves with Morning Musume’s music
and dances, to become self aware that they are part of the group.
Takahashi plans to properly finish her job as leader in the mean time.
Please be looking forward to what will become of Morning Musume.
Takahashi Ai will continue to be active in music, theater, and live events after her graduation.
Details will gradually be released.
Also, after Takahashi Ai’s graduation, Niigaki Risa will assume the leader position of the group,
and become the longest active member of Morning Musume
Morning Musume Producer
Takahashi Ai’s comment
It has been decided that, I, Takahashi Ai, during Morning Musume’s concert tour this Autumn,
will be graduating from Morning Musume and Hello! Project.
At the time when Kamei Eri, JunJun and LinLin’s graduations were decided,
Tsunku-san told me, “It’s about time Takahashi should think about your own graduation’s timing!”
which has gotten me thinking.
I will have been in Morning Musume for 10 years comes this August,
So I thought it will be a good time! to graduate in the Autumn Morning Musume concert tour.
As there are still around 9 months left, I will do my best as leader until that time to shape up this new Morning Musume.
I will be affectionate to the newly added 9th generation members as I try to teach them various things, everyone please rest assured.
Well, it's a little bit expected that Ai will graduate soon, but not this soon. I'm shocked hearing this news, since we just got the new members and Ai-chan, the leader, will graduate. She'll graduate around August or October, so, we can still expect for some new singlea with the new 9-nin MM. 
After Ai-chan's graduation, Gaki will take place as the leader. As for Ai-chan, she'll continue her work in the music and theatre world.
 Anyway, here are some pictures and a clip of her announcement

So, that's the latest for now. I'll continue updating news as long as I got the news and have time to post them.

Morning Musume 9th Generation Members

The 9th generation members of Morning Musume have been revealed. They are:
Fukumura Mizuki (14)
Ikuta Erina (13)
Suzuki Kanon (12)
Sayashi Riho (12)

The results seems to be expected, except about adding an egg member which sounds even great. I'm glad that   they're the ones who are selected, especially Riho, since she's the one that I noticed as one of the most talented of the 5 finalists, and totally catch the attention of the fans quickly. As for Erina and Kanon, I'm glad that they're the ones since they have this talent that catches everyone's attention too. Adding an egg seems to be a little bit surprising since they're not featured in the Bijo Gaku audition special videos, especially the ones where the finalists had a record and a choreography dance for the final. Anyway, maybe they had their special audition since they already had an experience and been part of the H!P performances.

I'm not really familiar about Mizuki, all I know about her is she has been part of the Shugo Chara Egg. I can see in her that she'll help MM be more successful along with the other 9th gen members. I'm going to go find out about her more, who knows, maybe she'll be part of my Top Favorite Idol list. 

I just found two photos where the 9th gen members have been revealed. It was from the H!P winter concert tour today, January 2, 2011.
 As we can see, the four girls stood up front of the H!P stage along with Ai-chan and Gaki. Mizuki seems to be surprised(as what I can see). The three girls seems to be developing each other as friends, they seems to be so close.
Anyway, congratulations to the four new girls, hopefully they'll brighten our hearts up. We may expect that they'll perform someday soon, or maybe they'll be part for the Momusu next single already. That's possible, since the next single has not yet been announced. Their official profile pictures(in the H!P page) may be or possibly be revealed this next few days. I'll keep myself in touch and update it to you sooner.

Congratulations to Mizuki, Erina, Kanon and Riho
