AKB48 To Come To New York City, For Japan Day @ Central Park.

April 13, 2015

I would like to thank someone for letting me know about this, I don’t know who that person is. But he or she knows.

On Sunday May 10th, AKB48 will be performing in New York City, at Central Park it’s Japan Day that day there. It’s actually only 6 members coming – Haruna Kojima, Rena Nozawa, Rina Hirata, Ryoka Oshima, Saho Iwatate, Tomu Muto. They’re only going to perform for like only 20 minutes, I don’t care it’s free (or I think so). You guys all know why I’m going this might be my only chance to see Haruna Kojima, and it’ll be nice to see Rina Hirata again.

I do have few problems, that’s the weekend I’m suppose to move my stuff to my new place. The hell with that, I’ll rebook it the week after. It’ll be the 2nd time I’ve rebooked it, hopefully nothing else comes up. New York City is about 8 or 9 hours drive from where I am, I need get back by Tuesday. Since I got tickets for BABYMETAL concert in Toronto here.

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, April 2015.

April 12, 2015

30. Minami Takahashi (AKB48 – Team A Captain and General Manager of AKB48 Group).

Several days ago April 8th, was her Birthday. Happy belated 24th Birthday, Takamina.Bsa9-eUCIAAakqh29. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).

Her and Sakura Miyawaki will be center on HKT48 upcoming single “12 Byou”, which will be her released on April 22nd. Support her and HKT48, buy a copy or 2.HKT48 Haruka Kodama Yosei on WPB Magazine 00128. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She really has lovely hair, hope she never changes it.0927. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).01 - 226. Rena Kato (Team 4).cT39t3M25. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S).

It seems like SKE48 is really counting on her to be one their future stars, she’s been heavily promoted right almost from the beginning since she was a Research Student. Even with some really heavy pushing way before last year AKB48 senbatsu election, she failed to ranked. If she ranks in the top 30 or 20 in this years election, then it would have been worth it. Several big names aren’t participating in this years election, that may help her. If she doesn’t ranked I’m a little worried, the heavy pushing could end. I think she’s really pretty, I would like to see alot of her.

To me she’s like the Anna Iriyama of SKE48 although Ann Iriyama is not as heavily push as she once was. They’re heavily push with really no results, but the heavy pushing continues.tumblr_nhgbgumWJf1rrlor2o8_128024. JiaMin Zhao (SNH48 – Team SII).

Here’s a good SNH48 video that I can’t stop watching since January, it features her and JiaQi Xu. Check it out, the song is as good as the video. “Yuan Jin Shi Jian” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMtQt30NseM .tumblr_njo4i4ZbCr1ri7x69o2_128023. Shihori Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).IMG_594222. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

She’s just as cute as ever.B8FT2KVCIAAf8nv21. Nanami Hashimoto (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

I think I said this last month also, but for more than a good month now. I’ve just been fascinated by her.tumblr_ngodphEQfP1rol1m7o9_128020. Aki Takajo (AKB48 – Team B).AKB48 Aki Takajo Akiiro Akicha on Young Champion Magazine 00319. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team 4).AKB48 Mion Mukaichi Totsuzen on Bubka Magazine 00318.

Her and Haruka Kodama will center for HKT48 upcoming single “12 Byou”, it’s her first time as center for an HKT48 single. Although she’s been center for an AKB48 single before.HKT48 Sakura Miyawaki Shojyo to Otona no Aida on Flash Magazine 00216.

Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

I’m kinda glad she got transfered to SKE48, I’m seeing and hearing more of her. Since the last couple of years she was with AKB48, before she got transfered.fa0ed2754a9ac7ccfb52ffb4fd45d90413. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).o080011221317488680912. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

She won’t be participating in AKB48 senbatsu election this year, which starts next month. Considering what happen last year, it’s understandable. It’s to bad with my favorite member not participating, I would have given her 1 vote.main11. Rina Kawaei (AKB48 – Team A).

She also won’t participating in AKB48 upcoming senbatsu election, since she has announced her graduation several weeks ago. It’s not a surprise.Kawaei-Rina-AKB48-Picture-810. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).BvcbVxTCcAAYqbQ9. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K).NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto Namba hatsu Center Sengen on Flash Magazine 0018. Rena Matsui (SKE48 – Team E and Nogizaka46).

Another member who won’t be participating in this years AKB48 senbatsu election, which is to bad. She had a really good chance at Top 4 maybe even Top 3.rwlSRSy7. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

I started this ranking just over 4 years ago (February 2011), she’s only 7th member to ranked in the Top 3. The rest are Haruna Kojima, Tomomi Itano, Atsuko Maeda, Yuki Kashiwagi, Mayu Watanabe and Mai Shiraishi.ibplImX6G0KqyY2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NMB48 – Team N).AKB48 Yuki Kashiwagi Datsu Seijyunkei on Flash Magazine 0041. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).

I’ve mention this before here, since it was such a great Photo Book I’ll mention it again. I just bought her latest Photo Book, I’ve look  at it several times already. What can I say, But it’s great.

Sadly (Maybe not) she also won’t participating in this years AKB48 senbatsu selection, it would been more fun following it if she was participating. This will likely take some of the interest away from following it, the good news is I will be able to give my 4 maybe 8 votes to some else. Which will make it more interesting, cause I don’t know who I will give it to. In the previous elections I participated in all my votes when to Kojima, except for one year when I had 10 votes, I gave 2 to Lovetan. I will making my annual predictions about a week before it starts, sometime next month.

In a week April 19th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 27th Birthday in advance, from Haruna biggest fan.25b6c6cb


SKE48 vs. NMB48, First Week Sales.

April 10, 2015

For the first time ever 2 sister group in the AKB48 family, went head to head. SKE48 and NMB48 released a single on the same week, on the same day. It was no contest I though it would be alot closer, I actually though NMB48 had a chance. Then again SKE48 did released 2 more versions and their CD covers were way better, and they’ve been around alot longer.

J-Pop Stuff I’ve Ordered March, 2015.

April 5, 2015

I ordered these in 1st day of March, I received it just over a week ago. I didn’t order anything in February.

AKB48 “Green Flash”, I got all 4 Regular Editions. Didn’t get the Limited Edition, the tracklist is the same as the Regular Edition. The only difference is the cover and the Limited Edition comes with an event ticket, unless you lived in Japan it’s useless. Whereas the Regular Edition comes with a photo.

Although more times than not their covers are very ugly, this one is not to bad I kinda like it. The overall content or packaging of their CD’s is very good as usual, they try give you your moneys worth.

Type A & Type S. I got a Haruka Shimazaki (Top) photo with Type A and Sayaka Yamamoto (Bottom) Type S.

Type N & Type H. For Type N I got a Miyuki Watanabe (Top), seems like I always get a Milky picture. I like her so that's not bad. For Type H I got member who I don't know, I could guess. If I guess and I'm wrong I will look like a fool.  If anyone can tell me I would appreciated it, Thanks.

I got 4 of these pictures from HMV Japan, 1 for each edition. Sasshi, Sakura Miyawaki and Haruka Kodama. What ? 3 HKT48 members, an this is an AKB48 single.

Since 2012 Momoiro Clover Z and AKB48 are the only J-Pop artist, where I would buy atleast one version of any single or album they release. Anyways I got the Limited Edition A & B of Momoiro Colver Z single “Seishunfu”, as usual like all their other singles. Packaging is excellent, second to none. The only thing I don’t like about buying a Momoiro Clover Z single, is they don’t really give any incentive to buy it. If you do get anything it’s just a little picture card of Shiori Tamai.IMG_0485 (1380x918)___________________________________________________________________

Me being a really big Haruna Kojima fan, I just had to get her latest Photo Book. Just like all her other Photo Books or photobooks (There is a difference) that I have of hers, she doesn’t disappoint.IMG_0502 (1117x1360)

This came with the photobook, it's a Post Card.

My last couple of orders, I’ve been buying too many magazines. I have to cut that down to 1 each order.

Weekly Playboy No. 11 2015, I just got this cause it had nice cover of Yuki Kashiwagi.IMG_0488 (960x1440)______________________________________________________________

BOMB April 2015, BOMB is a great J-Pop magazine. Nice cover of Hauka Shimzaki and nice article on her. Also it includes a very nice poster of her, only if they didn’t fold it up. They also have a nice one on Rina Kawaei, and Ayami Muto. Ooooh, she’s so cute. Alot more but too many to mention, they even got something on Erina Mano. Wow, she looks really nice.IMG_0490 (1168x1440)

GirlPop Spring 2015, probably my favorite J-Pop Idol magazine. They have something pretty good here about Sakura Gakuin. It includes a nice poster and picture of Nogizaka46.

I actually order thses 3 CD’s in late January, which I received in Mid February. I should have posted this earlier, January 2015 orders Part 2.

Just before the Momoiro Clover Z vs. KISS “Yume no Ukiyo ni Saite Mina” single, was about to be released. I just remembered I haven’t order this yet, for some reason I just completely forgot about this single. After looking forward to ordering it for a long time, I meant to order this along with my AKB48 and Berryz Koubou orders back in January. I decided to orders these at “yesasia”, it would have been the cheapest. It’s free shipping if you spent this much, I bought both versions of the single. The cost of the 2 CD’s didn’t amount to the cost were I would be eligible for free shipping, so I needed to get something else that was cheap. I was looking for a magazine, couldn’t find one I like. So I started to look for a cheap CD the best one I could fine was nanoCUNE “Higeki no Macho Man.
