Compete with River

It is not a surprise or special for me that again AKB48 hit the #1 oricon weekly with 179K sales. The one that make me surprisingly happy is that mana and her gang made it in the safe place in #10! This is a new record that they manage to that place against such a huge name (and size). I just realized that both of ’em released at same day! Well, i don’t know too much about AKB and won’t know farther about them.

Mana was even more amazing in this single, both her voice and appearance in “Daisuki ni nare”‘s PV. I think she born as a soloist, since she got too many solo line in any canary’s songs. After two consecutive single for anime “Gokujou! Mecha Motte Iinchou” she only act as model and din’t get a line at all, now she lift NGP to the surface again. It remembered me when last year she release her debut single “Suppin Rock” was released with Aya Hirano’s “Namida Namida Namida”. But that’s a different story because both of them were at the same anime “Hyakko”. This time she really compete with a big name in japan music industries.

#10 in the chart (klik for larger image)

As one of NGP’s ace sure she can prove that she is really an ace that worth. May the force be with her and she choose the Diva career path.

Kitagawa Mimi with MM Gakuen Gashoubu – Daisuki ni Nare (preview)

166720

The preview is ready, thanks to jerinaordi. Here, listen it via Youtube:

The song is totally in canary style and it was totally ogamana solo! the entire MM vocal group were just back vocals. That’s awesome, another solo for mana xD. But, why the group don’t have any single line at least give em a little.

It’s a happy song and since i used to hear canary club’s songs, this song earned an achievement easy-to-get-the-first-impression from me ^^. Yeah, it’s very catchy and easy i think. And somehow, i feel it has the same beat as other canary song “Alive! Are You Ready“.

Cinderella / (Over) Complex

Can you imagine?

The usual mana in her daily life isn’t over cute at all. i can say that she just an usual school girl with nice smile and chubby cheek that make me want to rub it!

This is just amazing! Finally, NICE GIRL Project! can rule over Hello!Project at least in photo book popularity. One amazing strike in June 09 with Akiyama Yurika (秋山ゆりか) or so called Akkyan, an ace from NGP lead group, The Possible, first solo photobook “Akkyan Be” hit the #1 Position and leaving Airi’s “Pure Blue” in the dust at #5 position and over powered Berryz’ “Allo Hello Berryz” at #3. Later, another consecutive release solo photo book from NGP, Ogawa Mana’s “Namamana” rushed to the top position in July 09 sales and made Michishige Sayumi’s “20’s time” only a runner up and Kumai Yurina’s “Flowerage” just in the #3 position.

  4. Regular ver. (¥1050)

Mana’s “Namamana”, C-ute’s “Zekkouchou”, Miya’s 17th and Mano’s “Tokimeki”

A week without any posts at all huh? yeah i admitted that i’m very lazy to write some update last week, so here is my batch in one post.

  1. Mana first solo photo book – “Namamana”
  2. C-ute – “EVERYDAY Zekkouchou”
  3. Natsuyaki Miyabi 17th birthday
  4. Mano Erina – “Kono Mune no Tokimeki”

First, last week i’ve received my original copy of Ogawa Mana’s first solo photo book, “Namamana”
Miya456Forget about 3 CDs in the middle row, that’s not mine. This photo book is a lil bit larger than usual even the publisher wrote that this is an A4 size. To compare i’ve put Miyabi first solo photo book above it.
Miya457Pointed at bottom-right corner of each PB, you can see that “Namamana” is wider than regular PB from kidznet. Oh yeah forgive me about the angle in this shot, coz “Namamana” is still longer about half centimeter at the top side.
Miya458And under its heavy hard cover there is full two pages picture, but unfortunately its print quality as not as good as the real page after it.
Miya460Wow, it can be safely opened in this way. I’m still trying to bend each page bit by bit so i can put it it into scanner. One more thing, this photo book come without any DVD making included at all and it will sell separately in September 2009. I don’t know if i can buy that DVD since MaiMai will also launch her first solo PB.

The second is, C-ute latest single – “EVERYDAY Zekkouchou” PV was aired in DohhhUP. Well the song is far more better than previous song and the concept of its PV is very good too. I like it, and finally i see an easy-to-get-the-first-impression PV from C-ute after their “Forever Love”.

Wow, an outdoor PV and it is in the top of building. That solid black dance platform looks very contrast against its surrounding, nice. Wait, i think i’ve seen this theme too in previous Tsunku’s works.

The Possible – Young Days

Canary Club – Nishiki Kazare

Especially with “Nishiki Kazare”, somehow i feel there are a lot of similarity with “EVERYDAY Zekkouchou” both in song and PV.

The third is, by 25 August 2009 Miya was turn into 17th.

Happy birthday Miya!

I wish you can get your position again in Berryz to be the second main vocal and center after Risako. Oh yeah, that fan-art isn’t mine.

The fourth and the last of my batch here is, Mano Erina’s latest single – “Kono Mune no Tokimeki wo” and its PV. Finally she touch the piano again, and this PV is considered as one of Manoeri’s greatest PV for this year. I like the PV because it is easy-to-get-the-first-impression and at least it match with the song as well. S/mileage came as her back dancer again? That was very smart for their public promotion and very “efficient”. One of the most its interesting things is the song isn’t created by Tsunku.
