Music reviews!

Hello! it’s been a while and i finally have a bunch of new music that I would love to share with you, some is both kpop and jpop enjoy!!

5. CRUSH “Woo ah”- I was a hard choose between 9 to 5 and this, but hands down this song is my fave so far. Crush is bringing his R&B style again which I love so much. The songs tells about how much he love someone and the Mv was just..like… wow. The woah part was ok,  but after listening to it for a while its such a great song to pump up your morning, making you want to make coffee for your love one or something like that lol. My fave part is the little bit of rapping he put near the end of the song since I love hip hop right now. Overall the music as amazing as expected by Crush and the MV was very colourful and romantic.

4. ANGRYME: :”Tsugitsugi Zokuzoku/ Itoshima Distance/ Koi Nara Tokku ni Hajimatteru”- I haven’t listened to lot of Morning Musume sub units, but this song appeals to me in some way  <3. The song is very catchy to my ear, however the music video was a bit off to me in some areas. The costume were very colourful and unique, but i didn’t really get it in a way since the song is about love and their costume where a bit off from the concept. The dancing was actually really good, and the visuals that zooms into each member has the most amazing shot and literally all the members were flawless. Overall the song is very catchy, but the music video visual was ok.

3. Kana Nishino: “Anata no Sukina Tokoro” – I actually really love Nishino songs, and this song was overall so cute! The visuals are every childlike in some ways and shows a very cute side of Nishino. Her vocal skills are to die for and she literally killed it singing this song. This sounds like an anime ending a bit and I think this is from an anime? but i’m not to sure. Overall this is song is very enlightening and I love the visual and Nishino herself <3.

2. NMB48: “Amagami Hime”-OMG THIS SONG THO ❤ <3. Like omg this song was literally so good. This actually reminds me of SKE48 coupling single Sekai ga Naiteru Nara. The visual is like literally like i’m watching a movie. The story was a bit odd as i didn’t get why their eating eachother arms? but the song is very catchy and the visuals are like AMAZING. Sayaka literally was bae lol <3, like omg idk I guess cuz this song fits her personality and she literally a badass stealing food lol like she can literally steal stuff from me also LOL. Anyways overall it was an amazing song, the concept of the video was a bit off with the eating each others arms, but overall it was AMAZING!!! Sayaka literally killed it and also Milky and everyone else in NMb48, i’m so proud!! ❤ ❤

1. Tiffany Hwang: “I Just Wanna Dance” – YASS LIKE FINALLY, I actually literally waited for this album to come out for so LONG. I actually waited for this music video to come out during school today lol at like around 9:00am. The song actually fit Tiffany style of music and the visuals where like OMG <3. I’m so happy with how the song went and the whole album itself. I actually like her song “What do I do” a lot and it’s in english also! The song was literally perfect style of pop mixed in with a bit of R&B and ballad. This song won’t appeal to everyone, but it a different approached from SM and i’m glad they took the chance to give this unique flavors of music to Tiffany. And also can’t forget Tiffany herself which she literally killed it! Overall I love this song and this MV was like perfect, such as herself and her album. Oh and if you don’t already know this Tiffany is my ultimate bias in kpop and i’m so happy she got this solo! FIGHTHING ❤

Milky’s Graduation from NMB48

It is never easy to say goodbye to such an icon of our time! So many memories, laughs, tears, songs and tv shows! She really out did herself all of these years! tumblr_inline_mtp8id9a2q1qjw8og

 

Thank you for having the members of NMB48’s back when their own leader claimed they weren’t worthy. NMB48 is all beautiful and talented and you threw away a friendship to prove that. Watanabe Miyuki is so much more of a leader than anyone I’ve seen in a while.

Ever since Sayanee made some bad comments about NMB48 members on twitter last year,Watanabe Miyuki took to social media defending her hard working team.

She started by deleting all of her sayamilky photos from instagram and even called her out on twitter.

Since then NMB48’s agency had been torn and divided into how to resolve issues involving fans walking out and member’s reactions. They came to a compromise and everyone was to simply work together as one big happy family. Milky continuously pushed her juniors to their limits to shine while Sayanee believes idols should work independently. Thus, this compromise continuously proved itself a flaw.

Within 10 months of flawed resolutions Miyuki decided to back out of the senbatsu. About 2 months later, here we are!  Announcing a graduation.

Now, I am not a staff member.. I can’t confirm that the agency disputes have anything to do with Miyuki leaving at such an inconvenient time. I can confirm that she wants to leave as soon as possible claiming “graduation isn’t far away”

 

Good Luck Milky, I’m sorry to see you go so soon!

International AKB48 Sister Groups to FINALLY Debut

The debut of MNL48 is confirmed.. again… this time they’ll keep their word!

AKB48 will also see 2 more groups rise up, TPE48 in Taipei and BNK48 in Bangkok .

I’ve yet to be disappointed by Thai musicians so this will be amazing!!

I’d like to see a South Korean sister group someday too, I can’t seem to get into Kpop(besides YG) despite all of the amazing groups Kosupure has shown me! So it would definitely tie me into the genre more.

If AKB48 branches out to South Korea we can rest assured they debut under YG’s sector. YG and AKB48 are Asia’s top power houses right now and go way back. They’ve worked together plenty of times before and I’d be extremely excited for that.

As for the confirmed groups:

I’m very particular about music after being raised on Matsuura Aya and many other staple centers of JPOP so I highly anticipate what the future holds.. I hope someone stands out.

 

Thanks!

Sunakku

 

SOLO TOUR for Kashiwagi Yuki & Graduation Announcement

Yukirin’s first ever solo tour will take place during April – May!

kashiwagi-yuki-yukirin-kashiwagi-yuki-37131825-500-325

Back in September Yukirin became seriously ill with a high fever and swollen tonsils causing her to go through IV treatments.  During this time she assured her fans she would make up for lost time!

Now she finally plans to perform in many places in Japan

April 14th she’ll perform in her new home’s city Niigata!! With that being said NGT fans are in for a treat!

April  21st  she’ll be in Osaka! If you’re in the kansai region I recommend you order your tickets now because it will sell fast.

April 22 she’ll be in Aichi, the venue is smaller so I highly recommend anyone in this area order tickets soon.

May 11 & 12 TOKYOOOOO! She’s doing two separate events due to the large amount of AKB48 fans. If you’re in Tokyo during this time you’ll also get lucky and see other AKB48 members in the audience! Watanabe Mayu will likely be there

On the 29th of May she’ll be performing in her home town of Kagoshima.

During her Kagoshima event she’ll be giving a statement..

As of right now it could be anything, a photobook, a solo album or her own show?? Well there is a more realistic option

It’s likely this is where she’ll announce her graduation. I’m not a Yukirin staff member so I don’t know for sure!

However, the entire solo event is great news!

Good Luck Yukirin! WE LOVE YOU

Yoshizawa Hitomi is Pregnant! YAAY

With great joy I want to wish Yoshizawa Hitomi a happy, healthy and wonderful pregnancy.

004363300_1448285877-yoshizawa-hitomi

Yoshizawa ‘Yossy’joined morning Musume back in 2000 along with three others, Ishikawa Rika, Kago Ai and Tsuji Nozomi. They were the revolutionary generation that changed the perception of idols  in Japan.

2000e5b9b4e8bebbe5b88ce7be8ee381aee5908ce69c9fe383a1e383b3e38390e383bce381a8e381aee794bbe5838f

 

Yossy is often given credit for opening the door for boyish girls to succeed in Japan’s music industry. She was trained by senpai Yasuda Kei to become an Idol to respect, adore and above all remember. She was the last generation to join under the leadership of Morning Musume’s original leader, Nakazawa Yuko. After Nakazawa-sama’s graduation, Iida Kaori became the leader and broadened a more youthful image allowing young Yossy to further express her ”faux lesbian” image. Despite obvious difficulties, Yoshizawa managed to work hard during her early idol years. The years of Iida Kaori as leader and Goto Maki as ace are known as the beginning golden age of Morning Musume. This was because both Goto and Iida encouraged members to promote their individual talents.

Fans and Japanese media alike continued to ship Yossy and Charmy (Ishikawa Rika) as a couple for an entire decade. They were Japan’s favourite comedy during the early to mid 2000s.

Yoshizawa became the 4th leader of Morning Musume seemingly overnight after Yaguchi Mari quit due to a groundbreaking scandal.

Her years of leadership would see the end of Morning Musume’s golden era and the rise of the National Idols, AKB48. Yoshizawa did her best to keep Morning Musume relevant and successful during their defeat. However, Morning Musume remained where the top begins. They are still a large staple in JPOP.

After Miki’s center position seemed to gain less attention than expected a new route was taken.

Tanaka Reina, Takahashi Ai and Niigaki Risa stepped forward as the aces. Thus the platinum era began. Yoshizawa handed her leadership torch to Miki and shortly after she handed it to Takahashi Ai.

Yoshizawa has continued to work hard ever since her graduation in 2007.  Now she has a new project, raising a beautiful baby! I’m so happy I cried happy tears!!

What a journey, she’s been part of 2 eras in Jpop and her boyish legacy is carried on by idols like Miyazawa Sae and The Hoopers. I can’t forget to mention the current ikemen Kudo Haruka of Morning Musume!!

CONGRATULATIONS,

Love Sunakku

… i totally don’t have a crush on Yossy anymore you  guys! Just kidding! She was my very first idol crush!

Miyazawa Sae, graduation preparations

Wow..

2008 was the year I discovered Jpop for very first time.. By the time I got into AKB48 I had already known the name ”Miyazawa Sae” . She appeared on variety tv nearly every week sporting her cunning personality and beautiful smile. Her boyish style was one of many reasons she became an oshimen at first sight.

Throughout the years Sae acted as a supportive senpai and obediant kohai. She is the only member every girl in AKB48 can say got a long with everybody she met.

Sae was a victim of bullying during middle school, her story of becoming on top of her emotions inspired me. She eventually rebuilt her confidence and turned her sorrows into absolute love and kindness for others. She’s known to be the member that steps in between fights and rebuild friendships.

 

She never claimed to be perfect, that made her perfect.

She never claimed to be the best, that made her the best.

She never claimed to be the most supportive senpai, but her kohai say otherwise.

With Sae becoming an OG, all of the 48 family has large shoes to fill. I dont  care what anyone says, she will always be the greatest member. I’m looking forward to seeing her grow in the future.

As of right now, lets cheer on the current line up! Lets show Sae all of her hard work wont go to waste.

Both of my oshimen in Jpop will be graduated from their respective groups. All I really have left is Maachan from Momusu!!

So, whats next??  Haha
