Okay! Musume Digest #92

DISCLAIMER:
This Digest may not contain an Idol group that you like, or that you follow. If this post does not contain an Idol group you yourself actively follow, then my deepest apologies, but I cannot follow each and every Idol group on the planet. I am one person, and whilst I do post about groups that I like as well as groups that I barely even follow (read: BABYMETAL) that does not mean I will also actively look for news on the Idols you may follow. If I do not have the resources, I will not be able to post much or anything about them. Please respect this, as I don't have the time to go scouring across the internet for Idols that I know next to nothing about, or that I have little to no resources to. Again, I am ONE person; if I had a team behind me it would be a lot easier, however this is something that I do for me, in my own free time, because I want to. I could just as easily not do this, however I do it because I want to, and I find it fun. Thank you.

DA-DA-DA-DIGEST! What shall we Digest today?

This week, in Digestive News...

Single Covers revealed! Yajima Maimi Photobook and Solo DVD covers also revealed! New au CM's!!! Not Yet to release their very first album! SKE48 graduations!!! Some Kenkyuusei promotions! Arashi and Sexy Zone to release new singles! Ogawa Mana graduates Junior College! AND MORE! Are you ready for some Digestin'?


The Digest this week will contain news from the past week, and bits and pieces of News that I found interesting overall from the time that I have been away. Bigger pieces will be talked about separately on individual posts, as I generally have more to say regarding anything related to certain groups or individuals, depending on what has happened to them these past three weeks. To everyone who has been waiting patiently for me to update with a Digest, I apologise for my extreme lateness, terrible manners in not updating you with a Weekly dose of news like I promise, and I also thank you for waiting. You should not have waited, and for that I am deeply sorry.

Admittedly, even with this weeks news I skipped a bit from the H!P section that I thought was boring and I didn't want to talk about. I know it's bad and all, but really... wasn't my Digest originally built on the desire to talk about News that was too small to comment on for a post on its own, but that I still found intriguing enough to talk about? I feel like I have reverted a bit in that sense, but I just didn't want to talk about a few things I found pointless... if you know what I mean, that is xD

That all said and done, here is this weeks Digest for you all. I did aim for it to be posted Wednesday, however a pressure headache and four days of terrible sleep caught up with me, and so I went to bed earlier than intended. I'd rather sleep than stress myself out more with a Digest, you know? So... here we go!

As always, be sure to navigate your way through the post via ctrl + f for easier access to the topic you enjoy! Have fun!

The Last of AKB48 - Nia's Wonderland

Video of the Week

Kimi no Tonari de Odoritai! by Doll☆Elements

Since coming back to Idols this past week, this is probably the song that I have been obsessed with the most. Sure, it isn't a patch on the last single by Doll☆Elements (and I listened to that to the death, I swear!) but it is just as catchy, cute and fun to listen to! It is so sweet and gentle in vocal work, and it has become pretty addictive rather quickly! I really like this song, and whilst it sounds pretty similar to their last song in many ways (not gonna lie, it does) it makes me realise just how pretty their sound is, and how it works well for them - soft singing voices, a nice backing beat and a fun vibe all around.

Hearing this song for the first time also allowed me to realise just how much I am starting to like this group; they have become a group that I look out for more now, and they are fun to watch too! So sweet, and really, I wish I had dolls who could sing, look and dance like them! Kyaaa, I am in love!!!

Comments:

Whoever styled Miyabi and Risako's hair in those covers needs to be fired, shot and then hung. Three to four times, at least. Maybe then stylists will learn to work magic with their hair instead of ruining it.

The announcement was made on March 7th.

Comments:

Not the most interesting of announcements in my opinion, but it is still really exciting to hear that Minami will be holding her very first solo live! I know that she takes pride in UUG (or at least that's the vibe I get from her) and she works hard, plus she's very popular within the group, so the solo live is very much deserved! Congrats, Minami! I hope all of your fans can make it!

Comments:

I'm rather surprised that Not Yet don't have an album already, though I'm also kinda not surprised, because AKS don't release albums as if they are hot potatoes like Morning Musume does. Still, it's nice to see that they are bringing out an album what with Yuko graduating and all... maybe it will sell millions? :p

Her graduation ceremony will be held in April.

Comments:

I'm always surprised by graduations, though I've become used to them regarding the 48's so quickly too... still, it's sad that Aki is leaving the group, however it is also a great time for her to go solo as well. She is 26, she has a lot of experience under her belt, and I am sure that all her fans and fellow SKE members will support her!

Good luck, Aki!



Kito Momona of Team E has announced her graduation from SKE48. She made the announcement on March 16th during the SKE48 Team E stage, citing her reasons for her graduation being that she had wanted to experience new things since turning 20 last year.

Comments:

Oh dear, seems like April will be a month of tears for the SKE fans! And this one is so cute and fresh-faced too!!! Ahhhh, SKE, why must you lose members???

Well, hopefully Momona will be able to create new dreams for herself after graduating. Hope big, girl, and dream large!

PV/Song Previews



The short music video for Tokyo Cheer2 Party's up-coming single Susume! Freshman has been revealed! The single is set for an April 9th release. Be sure to check it out for a refreshing sound!

Comments:

I didn't anticipate putting this MV into the Digest, however the moment I heard it I couldn't help but like the sound. I haven't even watched the MV properly, I've just... listened. I mean, the sound isn't the best, but the raw energy in the vocals is enticing and just so blunt, it sounds incredible. Yeah, it sounds like none of them can hold a tune, but still... it's really endearing in a way, and it makes me like it. A lot.

... I like this song, to put it bluntly.




The short music video for YuiKaori'sup-coming single LUCKY DUCKY!! has been revealed! Are you prepared to check it out?

Comments:

Admittedly, I'm not too keen on this release... it kind of feels like its trying too hard to be as great as Ueika!! was, when it just... well, it does not even compare to Ueika!!. I mean, it's cute and completely YuiKaori, but it feels too much like it is imitating the greatness of Hyadain's masterpiece that is Ueika!! as a song, and even imitating the video a bit by use of real life vs a fantasy sort of world.

... Still, it's rather cute! The CGI is just bad, though xD




A 30 second CM spot for LoVendoЯ's new mini-album Bukiyou has been revealed! The album is set for an April 23rd release, so be sure to check out the CM to see if you like what you hear!

Comments:

Not gonna lie... I don't like what I hear, but damn, Reina be pretty still!

Comments:

I love the JIJIPRESS footage, it provides us with Tsunku's beautiful rendition of What is LOVE? and yes, we all needed that in our lives! Loving how Ayumi just gets into the music there and dances a bit XD

Also, Tsunku you troll, having Harunan read out the Audition message! XD You scared those poor girls to death!!!

JIJIPRESS, TOKYO MX have released footage from Juice=Juice's press release event for their latest single! Be sure to have a look, and as always, enjoy!

Comments:

There is always a scare when Tsunku's name comes up XD it's as if they know 'today we're gonna be trolled... AGAIN D;' xD And then many screams ensue, and our ears hurt... but really, it is nice to see them all so excited, and their little fist bumps of 'kampai' success!!! Ahh, they are adorable XD


Performances and TV Appearances


Episode one of Haruka! Kudo Station has been uploaded to the official Morning Musume channel, so be sure to check it out!

Comments:

A station dedicated to the backstage antics of Kudo Haruka!? YES PLEASE! Wow, she really has made a name for herself as the Backstage Cameraman of Morning Musume, hasn't she? Kinda like Nakky with C-ute...

NOW WHERE IS NAKKY STATION????



In this video, Takeuchi Akari and Nakanishi Kana learn about sand art! Be sure to take a look to see what they learn and how they do!

Comments:

Satoyama Life may have ended, but it lives on through these cute little videos! Also, I never noticed how tall Kananana is! Also, she's surprisingly careful with this sort of thing. I never expect that sort of thing from S/mileage's cutest Gorilla!!!



Berryz Kobo members try their dab hand at Acorn Crafting! Be sure to watch the video to see just what these girls create!

Comments:

Okly, that is a DAMN good idea! I WANT TO ACORN CRAFT, TOO! ;^; And damn, Yurina is rather creative, she really made some cute Acorns under an adorable Sakura tree!

Actually, that said, Risako had the best Acorn creation with her tree and the pencils behind them... wait, they're all creative! I love it XD

Saki, SHE MADE TOTORO ACORNS!!!



In this video, C-ute present their self-designed Reebok trainers through a video where they dance in their new shoe! Be sure to check it out!

Comments:

The trainers are the least interesting thing about this video... Have you noticed hbow it is shot like a semi-professional music video!? So, thank the Lord and his Disciples, we have some diversity in the video other than a straight-up dance shot! NICELY DONE!!! I love how the focus is not solely (lol, sole...) on the trainers, either.

Sadly, the video is short. Daaaamn );

Youtube

...

And that be all for the past week and a few, me dears! Hopefully whatever I have provided is somewhat okay, but even if it isn't, then meh! I will write what I want for my Digests, and update on whom I want, so my apologies if I don't happen to talk about a group or Idol you enjoy... but that's just how I am. Until next week however, I will now bid you adieu! Tata for now, dear lovelies!

  3. Now now Sonda, don't go all Leon on me and have a killing spree, kay? :p People have a right to remain unidentified... also, Kevin Bacon!!! XD But yeah, don't worry, it's in the past now as to speak, but it did leave me with a lot of doubt about the Digest and such. In a sense, I still have that doubt, just... less so now, it seems.

    But thank you for getting angry and defending me XD

    1. Oh awwwll riiiiiiight, Matilda. I notice the same thing with me. I change to accommodate others and then realise I'm not doing what I was happy doing anymore. I think the moral of the story is be who you want to be and not what others want you to be, otherwise -- unhappiness. And if they continue to insist send them to the morgue. XD
