Wow, I certainly get quite a few stares when I leave the shower curtain open....
Sigh.... looks like Sayuri has just suffered a huge drop on my fave members list, just hope the others aren't in agreement!
Posted some blog pics on Sunday from their Osaka concerts, in one of them Hinako didn't look too happy in getting another birthday cake for her 20th....
.... obviously it's because she liked the size of Nao's much more!!!!
Not a lot of things for today but as the title says it is a lot, just a lot of a few thingsas there's close to 70 pics! It's Tuesday 8:50 pm where I live, that's EDT, but in Japan it's Wednesday 9:50 am which means the group's 15th single is now available in stores. Have noticed though that most first week sales are pre-orders and the majority of store sales are after that first week. Their last single "Harujoin ga Sakukoro" sold close to 750,000 copies in it's first week which was easily a group record as the previous high for first week sales were 627,000 copies sold, quite a huge increase.
New single isn't my fave Nogi single by a long shot but it's much better than the previous two, once things settle down for this single and I've heard it a few more times will get around to finally doing my 'Fave Nogi Singles' post. Actually that list may not be all A-sides as my fave tune by them is a B-side plus a few others like that would end up in my top ten.
On to some current things, what is it about Nogi that makes the words flow out of me? Have posted a few cards for July already, have done some for Nanami but these are different ones and following her are Mai, Hinako and Reika.
Asuka we've naturally been seeing in many mag spreads lately as she's the center for the new single. Odd pairing here as she joins up with the Undergirl Ranze in the September issue of UTB.
Here's someone who doesn't need to paired up as this is one of Mai's best spreads in quite a long time, one of her biggest spreads too. This set is also from the September UTB and they made a wise choice for their cover gal. This issue also has a few other member spreads, will post them tomorrow.
No mag spread but actually something a bit better. On July 25th Nanase was at Non-no's 45th anniversary celebration in Osaka which happens to be hometown. There was a answer and question session plus a lottery where a few lucky fans won some items though would doubt if any of the prizes were the group's new single. Sadly once again a Nogi event where's there no video.
Lastly have some group blog pics, will get back to posting individual ones tomorrow.
Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.
