Hi hiiiiiiiiiiiii, everyone! Nami here! 😀

First off, a new video to kick off the lovely Spring season! And it’s not just a regular fan dub or dance cover, but a video of me singing. Live. A one-shot. WOAH. I sang a shortened version of IU’s Japanese version of “Good Day!”

Perhaps I was too daring…? xD

~~~

Speaking of Spring, here are some of my favorite songs for the season!

AKB48- GIVE ME FIVE

Nishino Kana- Sakura, I Love You <———– Highly recommend this! 😀

IU- Good Day (Japanese… no, both versions 🙂 )

~~~

More sakura randomness?

I got mah nails done with a cherry blossom design! 😀 Excuse my skin… it’s so awful Dx

~~~

So did any of you hear the news about Aachan (Maeda Atsuko?) I’m sure you must have…

Some time after AKB48 releases their 27th single, Maeda Atsuko will be graduating!!! .______. Definitely one of the biggest shocks of AKB48. I mean, I knew graduations from the group would begin sooner or later, but I was just not expecting Aachan to be the first to go. She’s only 20! But although it’s rather sudden, I’m proud of her and wish her happiness with her acting career post-AKB. It goes without saying that she’s the face of the group, so it’s best if she leaves now when AKB’s at their peak instead of a time of struggle. Fans think that after Aachan leaves, sales will start to decrease. For some reason, I’m doubtful of that. I mean, AKB has so many great girls! Then again, the fanbase… well, we’ll just have to wait and find out! Until then, let’s just continue supporting the girls and Maeda until May!

Oh, and for just clarification, Oshima Yuko’s my favorite girl in the group! 😀 I don’t think there’s a girl I don’t like. They’re all full of personality and talent!

~~~

Oh, very random, but MoMusu’s “Ren’ai Hunter” has been stuck in my head for the longest time! xD Ahhh, Gaki-san. Another graduation. ;_______; Gosh, the Sotsugyou season is incredibly sad…

~~~

Well, although Spring is a very moving season, it’s just as beautiful and enjoyable! Please enjoy this season to the fullest. 🙂 I wish you all a blessed Spring season!  Thanks for reading! Bai baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaai ❤

Hey, everyone~! 😀 Forgive me, “Nami no Nikkichou,” for abandoning you again~! ;_____; I have returned for you ❤

Btw… Happy New Year *supermegaultraLATE* xD I hope you all have a blessed year with happiness and success. 🙂

Despite being so inactive here and on Youtube, there’s been a number of people who are continuing to support me, including my dearest buddies, so thank you so so much, it really means a lot to me. ❤

Before I begin…

Before:

After:

I ❤ circle lens. xD I have one pair, but I don’t wear ’em too much, since it’s not good for your eyes. But they’re just too cute! Everyone tells me that I don’t need them. As you can see, my eyes are already naturally large, so lens make them look really unnatural, but… I don’t care. I LOVE ‘EMMM! 😀 Hehe, random much?

~~~

So for my Youtube, I’m planning on uploading live covers… *coughfailsatone-shotscough* But I don’t know, I feel like I just want to try something different, y’know? It’ll be hard, but I feel like one-shots would be easier than fandubs, since recordings require mixing, volume editing, etc. But yes, ’tis my plan for the future! 🙂

~~~

So in Hello!Project news… oh gosh, a lot has happened. D:

First, we’ll begin with something really recent:

MoMusu’s current leader Ai-chan, is scheduled to graduate from both the group and Hello!Project as a whole at their 2011 Autumn tour. ;_____; Honestly, I’m not really that surprised. She’s 24 right now, and being in Morning Musume isn’t letting her show her full potential. I’m really happy that she’ll most likely start a solo career, but she was not only one of my favorite MoMusu members, but in H!P as a whole. It’s really sad, but I’m routing for her! 😀

She has a total of 9 months left, so she wants to do everything in her power to teach the new 9th Generation. She’s such a charismatic leader. ❤

But speaking of the 9th Generation…

Here’s the most current Morning Musume with the newest members~! (Top row from left to right, Fukumura Mizuki, Suzuki Kanon, Ikuta Erina, and Sayashi Riho).

They’re all so cute, not to mention TALENTED. Like, raw talent. xD I think Riho and Kanon are my favorites as of now, based on their audition tapes. Riho is a dancing POWERHOUSE. Absolutely amazing. ❤ I wish MoMusu, and actually H!P in a whole, had more physically-demanding dances, like “Tokaikko Junjou,” to show off their true abilities.

*going a little off-topic*

(starts from about 2:50)

Now THIS is the kind of choreography we need to see more of in Hello!Project. The opening was phenomenaaaaal. ❤ Eri, IMO, was Morning Musume’s best dancer, along with Ai. I’m too lazy to find them now, but there are a lot of videos of her dancing solo. AMAZINGGG. ❤

*back on topic xD*

But omg, Riho’s confidence is INCREDIBLE. :O

Kanon’s smile is just AMAZING. I feel like she has one of those smiles where you can understand what kind of person she is. She has the perfect character for MoMusu, and I’m glad Tsunku saw that. Man, is he a genius or what, fo reals. xD

I’m really really really anticipating MoMusu’s first single with this new line-up~! The age gap between the senpais and new members is pretty big, but that’ll make it so much more interesting, ne? It’s gonna be hugeeeeee. ❤ ❤ ❤

~~~

I suppose that’s it for now. xD Blogging A LOT is one of my resolutions for the new year, as well as updating my Youtube more. Until next time~! Bai baaaaaaaaai 😀

So yes, it’s about 12:47 right now, and I can’t sleep!!!!!!!!!!!! AHH!!! >.<
Anyways… since I’m on, it’s time for random randomness!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, Goto Maki.

Goto Maki, June 2008

So, the rumors of her moving to Avex Trax has actually become a reality now. She’s the 2nd H!P member to move to Avex. I wonder how her fan base will change after this. I’m sure her style is going to be straight-up mature, but I’m going to miss the cute little H!P Gocchin! Aww… what if her new “people” won’t use her nickname? I wonder if Maki will miss her H!P life… Duh! Of course she will! *hits self in head*

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So this week, I’ve been obsessed with an Uta Doki! performance: Takahashi Ai’s version of Itsuwa Mayumi’s “Koibito Yo.” I think the song and the translation is pretty. I heard the original, and it was more “Enka-ish.” ^^; Takitty really sounded maturer here than I’ve ever heard before! Gosh, her graduation is going to make me tear up… along with Gaki-san. *hits self in head* Why am I thinking like this??? I don’t want them to leave!!! >.<;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I’ve been hearing some news on C-ute’s 6th Single, and I heard that our Chisa-chan is going to be a lead!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!! It’s going to be her, along with Maimi, Airi (of course) and Maimai. I hope this is all true, but I want Erika to get more lines, too! She has an amazing voice and needs more love! I don’t get why she doesn’t have a PB and she’s the oldest member. xD Tsunkun, sometimes, you make me just wonder. xDDDD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GAH! 13 days until “Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance” comes out! I’m seriously counting the days… I really want Berryz to become more popular! They need more recognition. It’s funny: Berryz is releasing cute songs, and C-ute is mostly releasing mature songs. xD Interesting…

Also, on August 27th, a special remix version of “Dschinghis Khan” will be released as a single called Dschinghis Khan Onkochishin Remix. It will have the original song by the German band, “Dschinghis Khan,” the Berryz version remixed, then the original Berryz cover. Can’t wait! GO BERRYZ~!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hurray for the return of Ogawa Makoto!

Ogawa Makoto, June 2008

I really love how all of our favorite H!P members who left are slowly coming back, one by one. We’ve seen our sweet Aibon come, then Gocchin, then Makoto, and I heard that soon, Nono and Kaori are going to make their public appearances soon with their babies! I’m so excited to see Noa-chan, and not just her feet! xD

Noa\'s Feet

Noa-chan’s feet… KAWAII~!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Recently, I’ve been REALLY interested in H!P pictures, as in PB pictures. Don’t worry, not the bathing-suit shots. xDDD I’ve just found photobooks, download them, save the pictures I like, then just delete the rest. xD

Here are some of my favorites:

Gaki-san in \

Gaki-san in “Happy Girl” (Snow Princess!)

Sayu in “Sousou”

Mikitty in “Cheri” (I LOVE THIS ONE)

These photographers are really amazing! I have a whole folder on my computer with just pretty H!P pictures like this.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m currently learning the dance for MoMusu’s “AS FOR ONE DAY.” This is really challenging, considering that there’s no “Dance Shot Version” and the cameras change too quickly in live performances. Still, I’m going to take this challenge. I’m trying to do Yaguchi Mari’s part, so i focus on her in all of the “AS FOR ONE DAY” performances. xD I’m planning on recording the dance with my fish tank as my background. xDDD Remember the PV? Those funky fishes? xDDDDDDD The tank is built into the wall, so it won’t look too weird. I was kinda debating between that or just dancing in front of my glass door when it’s raining outside. So, hopefully, I will get my first dance video up on YT. I want to attempt to cosplay and make an outfit like the ones in the PV. Woo, I have a lot of work to do! Ganbarimasu~!!!!!!

Sorry for the long post…. ^^;;;;;;;; Oyasumi!

OMG, school’s finally over!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *throws confetti and blows horn* My last day wasn’t really special. We took a 2 hour test, so school ended at 9:45. Our class had an after-school party for Spanish, and we brought in international foods. My mom and I made a special rice and chicken dish.
Well, actually, I have another chorus concert to go to. GAH! After THAT, then school will be over for me. xD It’s actually for the Senior Graduation ceremony. Then, it’s over!!!

And yes Ebah, you ARE sweet. ^_^ ♥ ♥ ♥

So after the party, my mom picked me up from school and I had to go with her and my little sister to the doctors… My little sister has spinalbifida (I TOTALLY spelt that wrong) and the doctor said that she’s having surgery on July 14th. =( I’m really scared, since they’re putting a monitor near her heart. Guys, please pray for her…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ooh, KM released a new dub, “MIDARA Matenrou.” Yay for our first MK dub!!! The Melons rule, but they need more attention!!! I was actually the one who suggested to do this song, and I’m really happy I did!!! Aren’t everyone’s voices (minus mine) sekushii???

So now that school’s over, I can probably get my lines done… finally. Wow, I’ve passed so many deadlines it’s not even funny! You know what my real problem is? I get loaded with lines, but the temptation of auditioning for one-shot dubs always beats me! Some people hold auditions for songs that I’ve always wanted to do… GAH! Nami’s so foolish!!!

Hmm… what else, what else. Ooh, so I’ve really gotten into Berryz Koubou’s “Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance.” Youtube only had the preview, but OMG, it’s freakin’ amazing!!! I actually love Risako‘s voice here, and ooh, Chinami gets solos, too!!! After “Dschinghis Khan‘s” sales, I’m sure Berryz is going to do great in the future! Wow, things are really getting kinda competitive between the two H!P kids groups. C-ute is selling really well and even received an award, now Berryz is getting great singles and managing to get higher than 30,000 copies of a single sold. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if they sold higher than the current MoMusu is selling.

The current generations can never beat the old generations… Ah, the 4th Generation was my favorite! They had the greatest personalities, they were all talented, and half of them ended up becoming the wonderful W!!! *sigh* I really miss MoMusu’s old days… I wonder how H!P will go on. They’ve lost Gocchin, Aibon, and possibly (HOPE NOT) Nono and Kaori, W’s disbanded for good, and MoMusu has lost so many good members! Oh, you know what I noticed? Well, Nacchi’s last single with MoMusu was “Ai Araba IT’S ALL RIGHT,” which was their last single that sold at least 100,000 copies. After that, “Roman ~MY DEAR BOY~” was released, and it sold less than 90,000 copies. After seeing that, to me, it really seemed like the line-ups made a real difference to the fans. Since Ai Araba, MoMusu has never sold 100,000 copies of a single. =( I really hope a real miracle auditions for MoMusu and brings them back to the top~!!!
