Momoiro Clover Koko Natsu preview


Momoiro Clover previewed their 2nd major single, Koko Natsu, on their live USTREAM broadcast a few days ago.

First off I am incredibly stupid. The song Koko Natsu is supposed to mean Coconuts, but my first reaction to the title was "why the hell is it called here summer?" I was obviously taking the title a little too literally. XD

I am completely in love with this song though. It now replaces Ikuze! Kaitou Shoujo as my favorite Momoiro Clover song. The song is just so upbeat and happy that you can't hate it. It's a very tropical themed song, so I'm pretty interested in what the PV will look like. But for some reason I can't imagine them in bikinis. I'm like 80% it will be beach themed, but bikini free.
I also think Ayaka and Kanako are leading the single. But I'm not 100% sure of that. Because the quality is a little bad and I don't really recognize their voices by ear 100% yet. I can only recognize half of them.

The video from the USTREAM show is incredibly cute. They are so energetic you can tell that they love every minute of being part of Momoiro Clover. Which is incredibly sweet. I also wish my favorites, Akari and Momoka, were in the center more so I could see them better.

AKB48 is lingerie heavy


Just when I thought AKB48 wasn't wota friendly enough, with their bikini themed PVs, they go and make something like Heavy Rotation. Even though they are scantily clad and fulfilling every man's fantasy of pillow fighting in lingerie. I can't seem to hate the PV or even find anything remotely wrong with it. They take even the most wota themed PV and make it absolutely adorable and not overly sexy at all. Just like Baby! Baby! Baby was still cute under all the bikniness of it. It's mind boggling how AKB48 can keep that balance. They can roll around in lingerie and not look slutty at all! And I also don't feel awkward watching it either. Unless someone saw me watching it of course. Then it would be pretty hard to explain that AKB48 looks cute and hot in this PV, but I'm not attracted to them at all. XD

So yeah onto the review. Because you're only reading this post to get to the AKB48 screencap spam.

A Yuko peephole, I feel dirty already. ;]

I kinda wish Yuko didn't get voted as the number 1 girl, I don't really think she's the prettiest AKB48 member. They should just make Mayu number 1 already. :D

I absolutely love the outfits. Marching band on top, insanly colorful skirt on the bottom.

Pillow fight!

But it reminds me of this. Even thought they never pillow fight in S.O.W.

Dog pile on Tomomi and Yuko. At least I think. XD It was way too quick to be 100% sure which girls it was. But I think it's Kasai Tomomi and Oshima Yuko under Mariko.

WTF is Achan doing? It's so random. Someone should make a gif of her rubbing her rabbit. That sounds a little bit like a euphemism. XD

During this scene I am literally trying to figure out which girl has prettiest lingerie set, and which one I wish I owned. XD

I love the heart dance move.

Adorable screencap. And the 3 best lingerie sets. XD

I spot a Mayu!

But Yuko does look gorgeous in her close up shots.

But it reminds me of this. And also a peroformance of Shanimuni Paradise. But I'm too lazy to get a picture of that.

Wow, Achan looks super amazing.

Mayu! My god she looks breathtaking!

The head bopping makes them look like creepy dolls. XD

I always thought Yuki was ugly because of her obvious potato nose. But she actually looks pretty cute here.

Apparently they're supposed to be laying on an oversized bed. But to me it looked like they've been laying on the floor.


I really wish Jurina would stay out of AKB48 PVs. SKE48 have their own Pvs!

Lolz. What a lame dance move.

My first reaction to this was, dude if they're asleep they'll be easier to rape. O_O

Walk like an Egyptian.

Ummm what? I'm trying to make sense of this, but I can't.


So cute! But Mayu could sneeze and it would be cute.


I like this scene more than the lingerie scene.

I don't think Achan can get anymore gorgeous.

Wow Yuko looks amazing.

Feed me!

Stole Mayu's cooklie!

Kiss! I'm not really impressed with it though. XD

Ok this is hot.

Here's the video. If you want to see it without downloading it, I suggest you do it fast. Youtube is taking down this video right and left already. :/

Risako going solo!


Berryz Koubou member Sugaya Risako will be making her solo debut. She will be releasing a single later this year as Ibu Himuro, her character in the Mecha Mote series. Much like how Kusumi Koharu releases her singles as Kirarin Revolution Staring: Tsukishima Kirari. Or something to that effect.

Now I'm not really the biggest Risako fan in the world, and I also don't hate her. Risako is more floating somewhere in the middle for me. But I am super excited for solo single. Mostly because H!P anime tie in songs are some of the best H!P songs out there currently. Buono, Kirarin Revolution, Athena & Robikerottsu Shugo Chara Eggs/Guardians 4 are just pure win for me. Yeah that's right I love Guardians 4. Gotta love the extra does of Mittsi.

I'm also really interested in what her solo single will sound like. Because if Risako sings at certain frequencies it has the tendency to make your ears hurt slightly. Don't kill me for that comment. XD I also wonder if she will make her voice sounds overly cute like Koharu did for her solo singles. Even Aika makes her voice sound cuter in Going On. But Risako's voice is usually the exact same. But still she might opt for something cuter since it's solo single for anime.

But yeah, I am really happy for Risako. I mean she'll finally be up in the front more. I can barely even find her in Berryz Koubou PVs! Seriously, give less popular girls singles please. I'm expecting this single to be utter win, so don't disappoint. And let's hope she doesn't leave Berryz Koubou immediately after her solo singles end, like Koharu did. XD

Also in honor of her upcoming solo debut here's a small video spam of my favorite Risako performances.

Real Love:

Even more banners!

I swear I'm like super addicted to making banners for this blog. So of course I made to make even more banners. Bringing me up to 27 banners for this blog. I think I need a better hobby. XD Anyway here are the new banners I made. Please don't laugh at my noobshopping lack of photoshop skills.

First the official group ones.


Momoiro Clover:

And I made some more wota friendly ones. :D

Nishikido Ryo:
I had to do Ryo's Boao shoot. It's so hot! XD

Kusumi Koharu:
Koharu's actually came out the best. Mostly because I found a great picture that had room for me to blend 3 other pictures on the left.

Konno Asami:

I had to make one for my beloved KonKon! Though this one came out the worst. Since I used different pictures, I had no idea what to do for a background. So I just made it her group color. XD


Of course I had to make a Yamapi one.
Suzuki Airi:
This picture didn't even need blending effects.


I found this picture randomly one day when I was looking up AKB48 pictures, so I had to make a banner out of it. XD

Akanishi Jin:
I made this Jin banner long before it was ever announced he would be leaving KAT-TUN. I wonder if he still counts now? XD

So yeah 27 banners, you'd think that would be enough. But I haven't even scratched the surface of what I want to eventually have. I still have to make one for Canary Club, Kanjani8, Idoling!!!, YuiKaori, and solo ones for each of my favorite idols. Which is a lot. XD

YuiKaori throws a vivid party


It's finally out! The PV for YuiKaori's second single, Vivivid Party, is finally out! I've been checking youtube everyday obsessively for a month waiting for the full PV to be released. I am completely excited to finally have the full version.

Also am I the only one bothered by the fact that their song has an extra vi? It should be Vivid Party. But I guess it was added for cuteness, just Kusumi Koharu's Papancake single. Either that or someone really sucks at English.

I completely love their outfits.

Some parts of the dance are just a little bit awkward.

Yui is so adorable!

But Kaori is miles cuter.

Definitely awkward dance. XD

I officially need to become a dancer. Look at all the random foreign dancers in this PV.

I'm more impressed with this then I should be.

The cute screen caps of Yui could be endless.

Kaori looks gorgeous. The curly hair really suits her. She should seriously always have her hair like this.

Kaori bias. Though I'm not 199% sure what her hat is supposed to be.

Lolz at weird dance move.

Simple dance move, but it's actually really cute.

Extreme leg close up.

Insert perverted comment here. XD

Reminds me of Dakishimete Dakishimete.




I love Kaori.


That's kinda creepy. Someone lurking in the mirror.

I knew he wasn't dead!


This part of the dance is really awesome.


Gosh Kaori is so cute.

Gotta end it big.
