C-ute - Members Ranking

I never did post my member ranking for C-ute... soooo here it is....

1. Airi Suzuki

I LOVE LOVE LOVE AIRI! She's everything you'd look for in an idol. her singing is great, her dancing is not bad(it isn't the best, but it's still pretty good), she has a WONDERFUL personality(personally... I've always thought that Airi has the "truest" personality from all of the H!P members), and she's pretty!!
I believe Airi would be a great future soloist if given the chance(she's popular enough for it)!!!!

2. Chisato Okai

LOL, I pretty much like Chisa for the same reasons I like Airi!! Great vocals, great dancer(3rd best in C-ute), nice personality(i find Airi's personality a bit more entertaining than Chisa's though)!! I think Chisa would make a great soloist someday too(though I don't think she really has the looks nor the popularity for it). And also I must say... Chisa looks so much cuter with shoulder length hair(I'm sad though that she recently cut her hair... AGAIN)!

3. Saki Nakijima

I think Saki is absolutely GORGEOUS!! She's one of the prettiest girl's from H!P( I demand a PB from her right now!). and I also think Saki's dancing is amazing(she's the BEST dancer from C-ute, do you hear me I said BEST not 2nd best, BEST. She can outdance Maimi ANYDAY). I love her smile and her sweet personality!! Saki is adorable! <3>

4.Mai Hagiwara
Mai is really growing up(judging by that pic of her)....... I love Mai's dancing(she's so flexable when she dances, especially in Tokaikko Junjou), and I think her vocals are pretty nice too(not the best, but still pretty decent). I also like her personality(she can do some really funny things sometimes...). And one more thing.... I think Mai has a lot of potenial in the looks department(she could grow up to be very pretty).

5. Erika Umeda
I used to think Erika was kinda........... ugly
when I first got into C-ute(but this is because I was watching pv's of her when she was like 12 or 13 and she hadn't "blossomed" yet), Of course I don't think that about her now anymore(she's so much prettier now). I personally think Erika has one of the most stable voice's from C-ute(even though she's obviously is not given enough credit for that). It's sad she's gonna be graduating soon....

6. Maimi Yajima

No offense to Maimi fans..... But Maimi just comes off to me as plain and boring(in other words personality-less). I think she's VERY beautiful, very energetic during C-ute's live performances, and a stable singer. But she's just honestly too dull to me(I just can't get into her).

Maimi's like an idol clone......

Well... that's it(i'm not gonna put Kanna in this ranking since she's gone). I'll probably rank Berryz next again(since my opinion on some members has completely changed).

C-ute - Indies Single's Ranking

I ranked C-ute's major single's....
Now it's time to rank their indies single's.

1. Ookina Ai De Motenashite

I don't know what it is about this song that makes me like it so much, maybe it's the fact that it's so cutesy.
But I'm absolutely addicted to it, I could listen to it 100 times and still love it! And the fact that this song is soooo............ AIRI! just makes me love it even more!

2. Wakkyanai Z

One of the reasons I love this song so much is because of the way Airi sounds here. Airi's voice is not too high pitched nor is it too low pitched in this song(it sounds just RIGHT). And also because I adore the outfits that they perform in live(I like Airi's & Maimi's the most).

3. Massara Blue Jeans

This song featured A LOT of Maimi, and less of Airi & Megumi. Erika & Kanna were featured too(though less in favor of Maimi, Megumi & Airi).

well... I love the song(especially the part where Kanna yells Massara Blue Jeans), and I think the dance is great too(even if it is a bit inappropiate). and I also loved everyone's vocals in the song(even Maimi's!).

4. Soku Dakishimete

I like this song... But I just like C-ute's other indies single's more. The dance was alright(but not really all that great). The main vocalist's (Megumi, and Maimi) were great. and the outfits for the song were nice!

I don't particularly dislike any of C-ute's indies or major single's(except maybe Shochuu Omimai Moushiagemasu).

C-ute - Zansho Omimai Moshiagemasu (English Translation)

Airi solo!!

English Translator: Nouciel

English Translation:
Are you sad, lonely, okay?
I want to meet you, but...

Dropping some tears
is the way to become grown-up.
In the empty space in the bookshelf,
there's your postcard that makes me feel nostalgic.

Somewhat too suddendly, I feel pain in my heart
I wonder if we could still contact each other

If I had the courage to pick up the phone and call you now
That love could have lived some more.

A painful, sad, sole word
is what I want to tell you

Now I think
that I'm a stronger woman than before
There are many things I erased
in the late summer greeting card I sent you

It seems that this summer has only lasted a week

Are you sad, lonely, okay?
Hey, I want to meet you, but...

Your new life will have rhythm too, right?
Me, I can't interrupt that.

If I had the courage to pick up the phone and call you now
That love could have lived some more.

A painful, sad, sole word
is what contains this this greeting card
of this hot summer day.

SimpleSub = Best H!P Kids Subbing Group

(Keep in mind that SimpleSub didn't pay me nor did they request for me to post about them in my blog. I'm doing it of my own free will!)

SimpleSub is kinda new they started releasing early March this year(their first release was a solo from my fav member Momoko), Though they're subs aren't "the best" like Hello!Fansub's or MMIF's, but they're still good. the best word's I can use to describe their subs are simple but colorful(and i like simple! not a fan of anything "too fancy").

One of the things that makes me like this fairly new subbing group so much is the fact that they focus "mainly" on h!p kids groups(a lot of h!p subbing groups focus on Morning Musume a lot Although they do "occasionally" throw in some h!p kids).
And that they also take requests(i know almost all sub group take requests but i don't think their are a lot of sub groups who release their stuff as fast as SimpleSub does).

Sure there isn't all that much content now(about 10 to 15 releases), but it's new! Their will be more as time goes on!

So all you "H!P kids (Berryz, C-ute) fans" should really check out their website!! You'll love it!!


Erika Umeda Leaving C-ute & h!p!!

Erika Umeda announced that she will be graduating from C-ute & H!P this October during C-ute's fall concert, her reason is to focus on being a fashion model...

Even though i didn't pay that much attention to Erika, I'm still sad about this,
but i really think it's the best for her. Her talent was completely WASTED in C-ute.
And i think she has a really unique look And I think she'll have a much more successful career in modeling fashion rather than in the background of an idol group.

well... At least she's gonna get have a proper graduation ceremony during the upcoming concert.
I hope to see her in a couple of fashion magazines after her graduation.....
