Erina Mano Graduates From Hello! Project.

February 26, 2013

img20120523121908123I’m a little late on this I was at the Toronto Auto Show on the weekend, and spent the whole day there. Very tired when I got home, so I was going to do this yesterday night. Was busy doing something and completely forgot about doing this.
Anyways on February 23rd Erina Mano held a solo concert at Nakano Sun Plaza, in Tokyo. This was her graduation concert from Hello! Project. She join Hello! Pro Egg in 2006, and became soloist in Hello! Project in 2008. During that time she released 3 Albums, 1 Best Albums and 16 singles. Plus a bunch of other stuff.

I think she’s going to concentrate on acting now, I hope she continues to release some more records. I like her singing voice.

JKT48 First Album ‘Heavy Rotation’.

February 19, 2013

150th Post.

banner-home-8Earlier tonight I had a big Surprise when I found out JKT48 release their 1st Album ‘Heavy Rotation’, on February 16th. Maybe I’ve been spending to much time on SNH48, so I didn’t found out til now. Actually from what I’ve read their was no annoucement on this, so unless you’re a really big JKT48 fan and check on them at least every other day or so. You probably don’t know about this.
If you want to buy the CD or some information on it, you can check here http://jkt48-official.shop.rakuten.web.id/c/214409/ .

Here’s a video from about a year ago, I don’t know if this will the video on the CD+DVD. I hope not, I hope they make a new one. They have to include Akicha, and Harugon right. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mCRlK7A2D4 .
