In-Coming! It's The Summer Baka!? Let's Look at's 'Otsukare Summer' MV!

All thoughts and opinions within this very post are my own! I don't expect y'all to agree with me, so yeah! Thanks and ciao!

Summer is well underway, though recently it has rained here, like it's winter or something. Then again, I live in Britain, and the weather is as sporadic as my upload schedule on both Youtube and my Blog. By that, I mean I've been neglecting doing my reviews again, mostly because I've actually been reading books, and possibly because I fell into a bit of a blogging slump... this is normal, this is what I do, and for a few weeks, I've been trying to do this review, and failed to finish it. Well, today's the day! I shall finish this review, before the Summer dares to end!

So, what PV will I be reviewing and rambling on about today, huh?

I know, I know; What is doing here, Chiima!? Y'all don't like that sort of music, right? Chiima, are you well? CHIIMA, ARE YOU SANE!?

I was never sane to begin with, and also, music tastes can change, like taste buds with food and the like, and for some reason this summer, I thought to take a look at's latest release for the summer season and see what I might like about it, though it was more likely to see if I would dislike it greatly, like I do the rest of their releases. As many of my friends know, I generally don't like; their vocals are not to my tastes.

And yet, I was wrong, because oddly enough, Otsukare Summer! appealed to me, to the point where, dare I say it? it has become my most-frequented, favourite Summer song of 2015. I really like it, and I can't stop listening to it.

Hells Bells, Denpagumi did it.

This is the first song I have listened to fully, the first I have cared to have on repeat. I mean, I'm not a fan of them, but this might be the start of something, because damn, I enjoy this, and I actually really enjoyed the b-sides for this single, too.
 As I said, tastes can change, and mine may have matured. Maybe I've become immune to really horrible vocals? Who knows?

Anyway, I'll stop babbling here and get into the review towards the end. For now, though, we're gonna look at some pretty pictures, and stare at the glory that is!

It's the summer, but are you ready for a summer filled with fun, a bit of stupidity, and great happiness? I sure am, and I'm gonna celebrate it with! Grab your drinks in that coconut shaped mug you have somewhere, throw on your swimming costume, and enjoy a summer of fun and silliness, Denpa style!

Ready? Let's Go, SUMMER!

Be Charmed this Season! A Sweet and Tacky Summer with Lovely★DOLL is Nigh in their 'Calendar Girl' PV!

All thoughts and opinions within this post are completely my own. They do not, and should not, reflect the thoughts of others. My opinion is here to simply share, and to show you all what I see from a video, why I like it, what I dislike, etc... may aim is to simply show you what I see, and when I read other reviews, I want to see what others have seen that I missed. There is charm to all PV's, but we all take a look at different aspects that will appeal divinely to us, and not another viewer.

... Okay, that's some very confusing stuff I've written up there. YAY for trying to be insightful!

Neglecting my blog to read books and nothing much else. Ah, that's the life, ain't it?

So, after starting this post and not finishing it for well over two or so weeks, I think it's about time to actually get on with it, and do this Review. So, let's get summer rolling, and listen to some more sunny Idol tunes, shall we? Whomever could we be watching today, hm?

Oh, hey, Lovely★DOLL! Now here's a group I ignore for a good part of the year, and one I don't really have much of an opinion of, either. Not to say this group is dull, because I actually do think their music is decent, it's just... well, they not like Doll☆Elements, and I love the heck out Doll☆Elements.
 Lovely★DOLL, to me, is like the boring older sister counterpart to a fun and creative unit. It's like they had the name originally, but didn't implement the idea that made Doll☆Elements noticeable. Basically, they're just another unit, a rather basic one at that, though they do have their merits, of course.

I'm really throwing this group under the bus here, in terms of how much I prefer their sister unit over them, but I do genuinely find these girls good, just not always... they're like what S/mileage was to me in Hello! Project, last year - on / off. I don't always find myself paying attention to them, and then suddenly, BAM! They make a release that catches my eye, and my attention is on them like white on rice. Generally though, that intrigue is rather short-lived.
 And yes, the intrigue has peaked, because it is summer, and summer is an awesome time for the groups I rarely watch to make their mark, and entertain the heck out of me.

SO, after all of that horrible piece of text about how I basically find this group a bit dull, let's get into the overdose of pictures, and take a look at the PV and song that has, somehow, intrigued me this summer season! Though it isn't amazing, it may just charm the pants off of you! So, are you ready to go? Do you want some Idol summer fun, in a cheap and friendly way? Then Lovely★DOLL is for you!

Let's jump into it, and take a look at Lovely★DOLL's summer fling, Calendar Girl! Will you be marking your Calendars for their next release after this? Let's find out!

1, 2, 3... GO!!!!

The Top 11 Idol Bellies! ~According to Chiima~

PLEASE NOTE: Some images within this post may be NSFW, depending on how strict your work environment is. If you have various people milling around, or you are in school or somewhere public, please do NOT jump past the break point within this post. Likewise, if you dislike seeing Idols in bikini's or underwear, then do not press on. You have been warned!

Because I am such a gross Idol fan, and also because I'm in the mood for Top 11 lists lately (let's cherish this, I don't typically do lists, right?) I thought that it would be a swell idea to talk about the Top 11 Idol Bellies according to, well, myself. So, why don't we?

The idea for this came to me when I was talking to a fellow HouPri fan on Twitter, and he asked who one of the girls in my banner was, because her tummy was 'delicious'. By asking this, and then proceeding to tell me that he rather loved Lovetan of AKB's belly, I suddenly felt inspired to do another Top 11 list, one that was whacky but fun, of the Top 11 Idol bellies that I rather like to look at, and think are the cream of the crop in Idoldom, so to speak.

Of course, as with every list I create, this post is simply a jumble of numbers and Idols that I personally think have great bellies, ones that stand out to me. These don't, and won't, reflect your personal opinions of which Idols have great bellies - this is simply a collection of the Top Bellies that I found rather appealing.
 Also, in regards to this post, it is meant to be for fun, shits and giggles. Really, don't take it too seriously. I'm here only to have fun, and to pass on my weirdness to everyone around me and show you just how bonkers my Top 11 lists can get.

With that all said and done, let's press on and get into the post that will be as enticing as a slice of cheesecake! Because the tummies of our Idols makes the world go round, today we shall be appreciating 11 lovely, scrummy bellies for the heck of it! Will there be an Idol you adore on this list, or maybe a belly you didn't know was so belly-liscious?

If you're ready, leeeeeeeeeeeeet's GO!!! Hai!

The Top 11 Recommended Idol Groups to Watch and Enjoy ~According to Chiima~

After so long without one, GUESS WHO FINALLY MADE A LIST AGAIN!? YEEEEAH!!!!

A while back on Facebook, my friend Calli of the blog Calli Loves Hello! Project asked if someone could compile a list of recommended Idol groups that were not a part of the Hello! Project or 48 franchise, as she wished to branch out a little in the Idol realm, and find some new groups that she could potentially fall in love with, as she has with Hello! Project. So, I compiled my own list for her, an A-B-C of sorts for various Idol groups, and sent it her way so that she could find something she liked for the future.

Now, though, after sending that file some days ago, I've become inspired by Calli's own plight, and thought it would be worthwhile to compile a list of the Top 10 groups that I would recommend to Idol fans who, like many others, wish to branch out from the bigger groups we all know and love. So, here I am, writing up this post for you all, to see if you can find a group you never thought you knew of before!

By no means are these groups the best in the world of Idols right now, but with such an extensive range of groups and Idols in the J-pop right now, these are merely the groups that I am recommending from my own experience with their PV's or music. Not all of these groups are my personal favourites, either, but groups I think that you could all get behind and eventually fall in love with, either from what I have seen, or what others have said to me. Really, this is simply a list of a couple of groups that aren't in the big leagues that you may potentially enjoy in the long run - hopefully, there will be at least one within this list that you enjoy. If not, then I've failed you all! Haha~

Anywhoo, enough blabbering on, let's get to the list that I have been dying to do since I decided that I wanted to create it! Even though it's not a big list by any means, I do hope that you find a group in here that you seem to like, or even a group that you already love! For now, please, enjoy as you read!

Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet's GO!!!!!!!!!!!
