3 New Polls

Yeah.. I changed my mind again.. I don't wanna do an Airi vs Miyabi poll, I'm doing another vocal poll (I wasn't getting nearly as many votes as I usually do when I start a poll on my AiriMiya poll, and I kinda don't find it as a poll all that interesting :P), so yeah, vocal polls here we come!! :P

I know what you're thinking... 3 polls is way too much... but.. I don't really think so... (I have an H!P friend who does 5 polls at a time, so :P)... It's really only 1 more poll than what I've been doing lately.. (It's gonna be hard to fit all of those polls at the side though xD) :P

Ok, the first poll is gonna be on 3 members, can you guess who they are?
They are Maimi, Risako, and Airi... My poll is asking you who you think sung Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba the best... :P

(In order of age)

Maimi Yajima's Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba:

Risako Sugaya's Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba:

Airi Suzuki's Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba:

2nd poll will be on 5 members (was gonna be 4, but changed my mind), the poll is asking you who you think sung Momoiro Kataomoi the best!! Maimi, Momoko, Chinami, & Miyabi are the only H!P kid members who have sung this song solo, so of course this poll is gonna be between them.. Oh and... Mano Erina (I added Mano Erina in the poll at the last minute just for the hell of it... she sung the song solo too). xD

(Going in order of age)

Mano Erina's Momoiro Kataomoi:

Maimi Yajima's Momoiro Kataomoi:

Momoko Tsugunaga's Momoiro Kataomoi:

Chinami Tokunaga's Momoiro Kataomoi:

Miyabi Natsuyaki's Momoiro Kataomoi:

3rd poll (last poll) is going to be on 3 members (we're back to 3), and it's asking you who you think sung Koi no Jubaku the best... Can you guess who the members that have sung the song solo are?? Miyabi, Chisato, & Maasa are the only H!P Kid members to sing this solo!!
So, this poll is gonna be focused around them of course :P

(In order of age)

Maasa Sudou's Koi no Jubaku:

Miyabi Natsuyaki's Koi no Jubaku:

Chisato Okai's Koi no Jubaku:

Hahaha... Miyabi and Maimi are in 2 of my polls! xD

LOL. VOTE WISELY YOU GUYS! The polls are open for 2 weeks (and you can choose 2 members on one of the polls... Ain't telling you which one, you gotta find out yourself).... xD

Please remember to vote on ALL of the polls... Thank you ^^

(And as for the results to the Airi vs Miyabi poll... Uhhh.. Miyabi won.. Miyabi had 5 votes and Airi 4.... Not much of an accomplishment with that amount of votes... but yay Miyabi still, I guess? :P)

Poll Results

About 2 weeks ago (A week and 5 days to be precise), I did 2 polls on Berryz and C-ute, the 2 polls were titled "Who are the best singers from Berryz Koubou?" and "Who are the best singers from C-ute?", here are the results to each poll:

(Berryz Koubou first)

Who are the best singers from Berryz Koubou?

Momoko Tsugunaga - 70 Votes
Miyabi Natsuyaki - 69 Votes
Risako Sugaya - 23 Votes
Maasa Sudou - 16 votes
Yurina Kumai - 14 Votes
Saki Shimizu - 13 votes
Chinami Tokunaga - 4 Votes

Total Votes: 209

Winner of the poll: Momoko Tsugunaga (She won by 1 vote)

My thoughts about the poll results:

There's a BIG gap between NatsuMomoCHU and the rest... Like... a 46 vote gap (Damn...)... O.O
LOL. Now I understand why my friend was so emotional about this poll (and doesn't like it much it seems)... his favorite member, Captain, is in the bottom 2 (and has been since the poll started..).... xD

I was taken by surprise at Maasa's position and votes... She was doing well in my poll from the very beginning... If I remember correctly, it was Maasa who was 3rd for a while (Risako only overtook her during the last 2 days or something xD), poor Yurina, was 3rd (for a day) at first, but slipped down to 5th (5th is a pretty good place! xD), well, I hear some people don't like her voice very much anyways (So, I guess that contributed to her position xD) ... XD
Risako... I actually expected her to finish in 3rd place.... I'm not surprised or anything... Same goes for Chinami!! xD

So (summing it up), it seems everyone thinks the best singers are Momoko, Miyabi, & Risako.... THE LEAD SINGERS OF THE GROUP (Ironic isn't it?)!! XD
Everyone would prefer Maasa as the 4th lead singer of Berryz over Yurina, huh? XD

(Onto C-ute's Poll Results Now)

Airi Suzuki: 69 Votes
Chisato Okai: 59 Votes
Maimi Yajima: 39 Votes
Mai Hagwara: 25 Votes
Saki Nakajima: 23 Votes

Total Votes: 215

Winner of the Poll: Airi Suzuki

My thoughts on the poll results:

I find it weird that Chisato wins in my vocal battle poll between her and Airi, but loses (by 10 votes... That's quite a bit) in this one... I wonder... Was Chisato just having one of those days?? Or did the fans change their minds.. Already?? Well... Whatever it is... I find it strange, and amusing at the same time.. People can't choose, I guess... XD
Airi's place and number of votes is no surprise to me though... It's expected, since she's popular, and vocally well praised ^^

Maimi Yajima
actually had the most votes on the first day... Seriously, she did (It was so surprising), now she's well... there's a bit of a gap between her and Chisato (20 vote gap)... she still did very well in this poll though!! xD

Nakky was ahead of Mai yesterday (actually if I would have closed my poll yesterday like I intended to, instead of today... Nakky would have been 4th, and Mai 5th)... but yeah... When I decided to leave my poll open an extra day (because I wanted to break the 200 vote mark.. I had never done it before, and well... I'd be nice to break that mark! xD), Mai gained more votes... xD
(Nakky fans don't be mad at me for leaving the poll open an extra day! xD)

So, it seems everyone thinks the best singers from C-ute are Airi, Chisato, & Maimi.... AIRI AND MAIMI ARE THE LEAD SINGERS OF C-UTE, AND CHISATO IS A LEAD SINGER IN THE MAKING!!! (Again, I ask does anyone find that ironic? xD)

Something I noticed about both polls:

C-ute's votes on their poll are more evenly distributed between each member than Berryz's... XD

Berryz's 3rd most voted member, Risako Sugaya, has the same amount of votes as C-ute's least most voted member, Saki Nakajima (Does anyone find that.... I know don't know... Weird?? xD), Mai Hagiwara (C-ute's 2nd least most voted member) has more votes than ALL the members of Berryz (excluding Momoko and Miyabi of course). XD

The poll results are quite interesting... What do you guys think of them?? XD

The rest of the solos

So, after waiting about 12 hours... I think it's ok, to assume that I can upload the rest of the solos from C-ute's end of the year party (and won't get my account suspended! xD),
Here they are:

Leaders solos go first:

Maimi Yajima - Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba:

I know I already posted this video in my last post, but I felt I should post it again... Just to make sure XD

Maimi Yajima - Aenai nagai Nichiyoubi:


Saki Nakajima - Lucky Aura:

Saki Nakajima - Lalala Sososo:

(I think Nakky's a Mano Erina fan... Lucky Aura and Lalala Sososo are ManoEri songs!! xD)

Saki Nakajima - Akai Freesia:

There was a lot of Nakky in the karaoke part.. She had the most solos... Yay for all the Nakky love!! XD


Mai Hagiwara - Oujisama to yuki no yoru:

(Maimi was originally supposed to sing this, but she gave it to Mai... How sweet of her :D)


Chisato Okai - Romantic Ukare Mode:

Finally a full version of Chisato's Romantic Ukare Mode!! XD
Before we only got these little 20 second moments of her singing it: Click here and here.

And last video:
Chisato Okai & Mai Hagiwara - I NEED YOU:

Lol, Momo must be happy now, Chisato & Mai-chan sung her song....
Momo doesn't have to be jealous of Miyabi anymore... XD
(Lol, for those of you who don't get what I'm saying, ummmm... Well, Momo wrote on her blog recently to Chisato saying that she was sad (jealous) because Chisato only talks about Miyabi now.. XD)


(The video's are all unlisted, so you won't be able to find them by just searching for them on Youtube, you need a link to view it! :P)

Maimi Yajima - Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba

Ummm... I think I'm gonna leave the 2 polls up for an extra day or 2.. I'm almost near 200 votes.. I kinda wanna break that mark XD

And here's Maimi's FULL (Yes, I did just say full, not a damn 1 minute teaser) version of "Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba", it's from C-ute's End of the year party:

Maimi's version is actually pretty good, you guys!! :)
I mean, if you just CAN'T STAND HER VOICE, than you're mostly likely not gonna like this very much (you probably aren't gonna like anything she sings!! xD), but yeah... her singing is quite stable (take note), and her voice is so soft (Maybe a little too soft at times.. Sometimes it sounds a little weak.. but none-the-less, a job well done for Maimi!! xD).

And lols... Nakky & Chisato have had too much sugar recently, haven't they?? they keep getting in front of the camera (This is Maimi's time... You 2 need to step back!! NO CAMERA WHORING ALLOWED!! *jk jk* XD) xD
(LOL. Look at 2:13-2:17... That's the funniest part of the video for me... Nakky's GENKI DESU KA!! She said it in such a deep funny voice!! XD)

(I'm planning on uploading the other members solos too... I just wanna first test though to see if Up-front removes this video for copyright (Someone uploaded Chisato's FULL version of "Romantic Ukare Mode" about 3 HOURS AGO, and now it's been removed, by Up-front for copyright.. I wanna see if they're gonna do the same with my video (If they do.. than I ain't uploading the other members solos! xD)

*goes off to sleep* XD

Guardians 4 Singles Ranking

A request from my friend (she asked me to rank their singles), so lol, here goes...
(They only have 4 singles, and have disbanded for those of you who didn't know btw... xD)


LOL. This is actually G4's lowest selling single (LMAO), but it's my favorite, it's always been my fav ever since it was released (An instant win for me).... (This is the only G4 song I listen to these days... :P)... XD

2. Omakase Guardian

Is it weird that I like their lowest selling singles the best??......... XD
They seem so much more catchy to me (Shugo Chara fans must have been on crack or something... PARTY TIME & Omakase are totally the best!! :P) xD

(Admittedly... I don't like the other 2 songs too much.... They're kinda on the same level for me... So, it's gonna be a little hard to choose which one is 3rd... xD)

3. Going on!

Yellow looks better on the G4 members than Blue.. that's why I choose this for 3rd instead of School days! (fail) -SHOT-. XD

4. School Days

The song is OK.. I guess... (I remember not liking it though, when I first heard it xD)

Don't really have much to say about the songs... They all sorta bore me (Excluding PARTY TIME, that song is awesome!! 8D)... xD
What do your G4 single rankings look like, you guys?? I wanna see them! :D

2 New Polls

LOL. I'm sorry that my blog was inactive for a few days (ran out of idea's :P).... I've got a new poll going now though... It's going back to vocals (That's what I usually get the most votes on anyways, so gotta keep that topic going xD)... I got the idea for my new poll from MC Chissa's blog.

The 2 new polls are titled "Who are the best singers of Berryz Koubou?" and "Who are the best singers of C-ute?" (Notice that I said "singers" and not "singer", I'm asking you to choose more than 1 member! :P), you guys can choose up to 3 members for each poll, the poll is going to be open til the 29th of this month (Nearly 2 weeks :P), so vote wisely (Don't be biased!!! xD).



Miyabi's solo Sakura->Nyuugakushiki:

(Yes, it is new :P)

LOL, I thought she was gonna sing "Sakura wa Raku Sa" solo, not Sakura Nyuugakushiki (I swear, I read somewhere that, that was what she sung solo), I think this song suits her voice better though than Sakura wa Raku, so it's ok... XD

I prefer her Masayume solo to this though... (I prefer that to all her solos though actually xD) :D

Poll Results

I was gonna leave the poll open one more week (because uhhh.. some... interesting fan-boy thinks that I cheated my poll just because Momo won it.... ).... but meh... I decided to close it after-all...

Poll results:
Momoko Tsugunaga: 31 Votes
Miyabi Natsuyaki: 29 Votes
Airi Suzuki: 19 Votes

LOL. Miyabi had the most votes before I let the poll stay open an extra day... Momo gained when I re-opened it though, and won the poll....
Honestly... There's really not much to say about these poll results... I've already seen a blog pic from Airi with all the Buono! members together in their new outfits for their 11th single, and she's center in it (lol, just as I had predicted! xD)... So yeah.. Even though Airi has the least amount of votes in my poll.. She IS the one in the center it seems (based on the blog pic).. XDDD

Blog pic:

Go Airi Suzuki!! xD

Berryz Koubou - Vocal & Personal Taste Ranking

My vocal skills ranking has changed for Berryz recently (and probably will change again really soon XD), no changes for C-ute so far... I've also added a personal taste ranking for Berryz for comparisons (Personal taste ranking is basically like... just what voices you prefer to listen to.. nothing to do with skills or consistency, just taste) :D
Here's my last ranking, for those of you who are curious (It includes C-ute too):

Vocal skills: Berryz Koubou:
1. Momoko Tsugunaga & Miyabi Natsuyaki:: *sighs* I had put Momoko 1st originally (when I first posted this post), but lol... after a while I started to feel bad, because I wanted (and felt) that Miyabi should be at first too, since both of them are great singers in their own ways... So, yeah, now they're both at #1.... Isn't that funny? XD
ng on*
Momoko's vocals:
Well, her singing can be a bit shaky sometimes (the only flaw I really see), but she's very good at controlling her voice, she's got good pitch, good range, and she's very consistent live (Yes, I think everyone knows that, right? XD), but what I wanna direct my attention to is her vocal range, I think Momo may be like one of the most versatile members in H!P right now.... She can go from cute and upbeat to mature and sexy. :D
Miyabi's vocals: Well, she has good pitch, good control, and she's consistent live (basically same as I said with Momo), she doesn't have many weaknesses... Only weaknesses I can think of that she may have are power (she sometimes lacks that and comes off as a bit weak), and emotion, sometimes she's just singing it, and not feeling it (she improved a bit on that recently though ^^)... That's pretty much it... Momo and Miya don't have many weaknesses, so yeah... =P
2. Yurina Kumai: I know a lot of people don't like her voice, and all, but lol, she's a pretty good singer, she's stable in most of the performances I've seen of her (Although.. I must say... Yuri really isn't much of a high singer, she does ok with high notes, but low notes suit her better! :D), she sounds really good in Shining Power (Hahaha, yeah I just had to mention that xD) :)
3. Risako Sugaya: ....What to say about her vocals... Ummm... She has this yelling thing... Whenever she gets to a high note, she can't hit, she yells it out, and she has pitch and control problems (mainly control =P) too......... but with all that being said, Risako really does have an amazing voice (vocal tone, and this is all, imo of course), I wish Tsunku would "properly" train her (I know Tsunku hasn't been training them as well as he should.. That old man is getting lazier and lazier as he ages *joking, joking* xD). Seriously though, I think Risako really does have it in her to be really good (Right now she's just OK, she's decent, but when she gets older I think she could be something really good for H!P vocally).
4. Saki Shimizu: She has pretty decent singing (she's pretty stable live), but her voice, whenever Captain tries to sing higher she sometimes produces this really nasally sound, and this nasally sound happens to be the reason why my friend (who happens to be a fan of Captain) has not been liking her singing lately (the way he talks about her voice now makes it seem like he thinks she can't sing, she can sing though, just her tone sounds nasally.. I guess a little too nasally for his taste.. I kinda dislike nasally voices too sometimes! xD ^^)... Captain does have her moments when she doesn't sound as nasally singing in a higher range though :)
5. Maasa Sudou: Lol, Ummm... What's their to say about Maasa's vocals..... Ummmm.... She has her good moments (ROTFL! xD).... I noticed though that she sometimes has a hard time staying in tune, and she doesn't stretch notes all that well, but still, she has her good moments. XD
6. Chinami Tokunaga: Ah, well.... She has a cute voice (I love her tone! ^^)
She's kinda pitchy and flat though (her tone, even though I love it, actually doesn't help her much.. probably makes this more noticeable and worsier for her in some ways xD)... =P

Personal Taste, Berryz Koubou:
1. Risako Sugaya: I was so sure I was gonna put Miyabi or Momoko here.... Somehow I ended up putting Risa at #1 though... LOL. I guess that diva voice of hers appeals to me more than I thought.. xD
2. Momoko Tsugunaga: Her idol voice (cute voice) and her Buono voice (mature voice), I love them both, and I think I've stated that before though, right? So, no fans should be surprised. xD
3. Miyabi Natsuyaki: I love how Miyabi's voice sounds when she sings ballads... so soft and soothing....
4. Chinami Tokunaga: I like her childish voice... It's cute!! :)
5. Yurina Kumai: I'm pretty neutral about Kumai's voice... I don't dislike it, but I don't love it either (I know there are some fans who hate her voice... I don't hate it though... =P).
6. Saki Shimizu: LOL. I'm not too crazy about nasally voices, I love when Captain sings in her lower range though (It sounds a lot less nasally =P)... She sounds too nasally in her higher range... xD
7. Maasa Sudou: ....Uhhhhh.... Hmmmm.... Yeah..... I'm indifferent about her voice, I guess... xD

If you guys don't agree with how I ranked them for the vocal skills part (which I'm sure some of you don't =P) well than... Go ahead and comment how you think they should be ranked. :D

I changed my mind about the top.... =P

Poll Results & some good news

Last week I did a poll on the H!P Kids asking who you guys thought had the most entertaining personality and here are the results:

Momoko Tsugunaga: 18 votes
Chisato Okai: 15 votes
Airi Suzuki: 10 votes
Miyabi Natsuyaki: 7 votes
Mai Hagiwara: 4 votes
Saki Nakajima: 4 votes
Chinami Tokunaga: 3 votes
Maimi Yajima: 1 vote
Risako Sugaya: 1 vote
Saki Shimizu: 0 votes
Maasa Sudou: 0 votes
Yurina Kumai: 0 votes

Congrats to Momoko!! She won!! (Why am I not surprised? xD) xD

LOL. Isn't it funny, both Momoko and Chisato get the most votes again (they got the most votes in the last poll too)... Looks like I've got lot of Momo and Chisato fans reading my blog, huh? XD

Airi comes in 3rd with 10 votes (not bad... :D), Miyabi 4th with 7 votes (lol, Miya fans), Mai & Nakky tie for 5th place with 4 votes (I've got some Mai fans on this blog, and I already know who one of the voters for Nakky is XD)... Chinami in 6th place with 3 votes (One of those votes are mine... Not many people were picking her, so I gave her an extra vote... Where's the Chii love, I wonder?)... and... the rest is just... lol.... Where are the Maimi fans... Where are the Risako fans?? I understand Saki, Maasa, and Yurina not getting votes (their not that pushed in Berryz, although Captain does have a lot of foreign fans), but not Maimi & Risako... their lead singers XD

I'm gonna try to post more about Risako and Maimi... I wanna attract more of their fans xD

~Oh and the good news is~

Buono's releasing a new single on February 2, 2011!! It's been confirmed and everything... They really are back this time everyone... XD
Their not releasing it under Pony Canyon btw.. It's gonna be released under Zetima (which could possibly mean a new style for Buono!... -___-)... I'm still happy though!! Buono's back and that's all that matters to me right now!! :)

Oh and I'm putting up a new poll today, you guys... it's gonna be on Buono!!(XD)... It's titled "Who do you think is going to be in the center for Buono!'s 11th single?" :D
LOL. Everyone's always discussing this topic when it comes to Buono! (because they switch centers a lot)... so, yeah... Please vote, and vote wisely...

(Sorry this post is sorta... half-done... I'm in a hurry... xD)

Poll results

I did a poll 2 weeks ago on who's version of Watarebashi you liked the best, and here are the results:

Who's version of Watarasebashi do you like better?

Chisato Okai: 28 votes
Momoko Tsugunaga: 25 Votes

Miyabi Natsuyaki: 10 votes
None of them! Aya owns all other versions!: 7 Votes

Maimi Yajima: 5 Votes
Yurina Kumai: 2 Votes

Congrats to Chisa, and her fans! She won the poll! :D
Momo was in the lead during the first week, but Chisa took the lead from her during the 2nd week! XD

I'm not surprised to see Chisa & Momo with the most votes, I got the feeling they would have the most. :P
Miyabi coming in 3rd is nice (she was my 3rd choice too), and Maimi with 5 votes is not bad ( I did expect a bit more though admitly), but lol at the 7 votes for "None of them! Aya owns all other versions!", Aya's version does pretty much own all the Kids version of the song, which is why I'm starting to think I shouldn't have included that choice in the poll.. Seems sorta unfair in a way.. She is their senpai.. xD
2 votes for Yurina.. Not bad, not bad! During the first week of the poll she had 0 votes, and because of that I had thought she was gonna end up with 0 votes... Glad I was wrong!! XD

Next poll is gonna be focused on their personalites (I wanna try something different this time)... It's titled "Who has the most entertaining personality from the H!P Kids" (I'm basically asking who's the funniest..), the poll will include all the Kid members (who have not graduated)! Choose wisely!! :D

Poll is up! :D

C-ute - Aitai Lonely Christmas [Full PV]

So, we've finally got the full PV of C-ute's new single (Thanks to Chisato xD)!!!

There is no dance shot in the PV at all (This is the first time C-ute has not had a dance shot in a PV!! :O), I think it's good that they didn't include a dance shot though (it wouldn't have suited the theme very much if they did xD), there also is not a lot of action in the PV either (there's a lot of different locations and angles, but not too much action.... At some parts the girls just stand there and sing xD), and the house sorta looks weird (I at first thought it was cute when I saw the 30 second CM for the PV, but after I watched the full PV.. it went from cute to weird... The house looks fake... Looks like a doll house or something... xD)... I however, none-the-less enjoyed this PV!! xD
The girls look gorgeous, the line distribution is pretty even (and so is the screen-time surprisingly enough), and just.. lol... It's just great!! (Maimi noticeably does seem to have been pushed back a little for the sake of Chisa, Mai, & Nakky... She doesn't stand out too much here... Not too many lines :P) xD

Chissa did this ranking on his blog, so I decided to do it too:

Voice ranking for Aitai Lonely Christmas:
(Just ranking the girls voices, not singing skills or technique or anything, just their tones...)

1. Chisato Okai:
I was gonna go for Airi, but somehow, Chisa's vibrato ended up winning me over!! xD
Her lines in Lonely Christmas are very nice, the song suits Chisato's voice well :D

2. Airi Suzuki:
I loved Airi's lines, especially the line from 3:47-4:02!! ^_^
I generally liked all her lines here though (unlike Dance de Bakoon, which she sounded odd in 8D)... ^^

3. Saki Nakajima:
Some people dislike Nakky's voice (because it's too high and blah blah blah), and that's sad because I think her tone is like the 3rd best in C-ute (It's nasally, but not nearly as nasally as Mai's.. and she doesn't sound like she's sick like... CoughMaimiCough -SHOT-...
However, Nakky in terms of technique and what not is weakest in C-ute... No lie... Her voice is more pleasant to my ears than Mai's and Maimi's though!! :P)... 8D

4. Mai Hagiwara & Maimi Yajima:
I couldn't pick between them, so I just decided to place them both at no.4.... xD
Mai's voice is less nasally here (which is nice), but still... Not too crazy about it... xD
Maimi... well... She sounds like herself... xD

I'm hoping that this sells well and does great on the oricon charts (I hope it sells a total of like 30,000!! :D), it deserves too!! :D

Poll results to my first poll

I've decided to leave my 2nd poll (Who's version of Watarasebashi do you like better?) up for another week or so.. I'm gonna close my 1st poll today though!! :P

Here are the poll results to my first poll:

Do you think Saki Nakajima should get more lines?

Yes, of course!!: 25 Votes
Nope!!: 11 Votes

I'm glad a majority of the votes went to the "Yes, of course!!".. Very glad :D
LOL. I am a bit surprised at the number of "Nope's" though ( I expected about 4 or 5 "Nopes", not 11 xD).. I'm starting to think that some people on my blog don't like Nakky's voice very much... xD

Nakky has been receiving more lines recently in C-ute's singles (Dance de Bakoon & Aitai Lonely Christmas), so this poll sorta doesn't really count (I just added it because I wanted to see how many people would chose "Yes, of course" and "Nope!!").... Still glad I added it though... xD

(I hope the staff who work for H!P don't see this poll.. They might start thinking Nakky shouldn't get a lot of lines because of the number of people who voted "Nope!!" xD)

Berryz Koubou - Shining Power *Review* (& TWO new polls)

When I first heard this song (which was at school during 3rd period), I hated it... I don't remember exactly why I hated it, but lol... I just hated it.. XDD
I think the song is ok now though... It's grown on me a lot. ^^

The song reminds me a little of Ryuusei Boy (I prefer Ryuusei Boy to this song though :P), and the PV has a few nice scenes too (like the ping pong and hide-and-go-seek moments ^^)! I'll be honestly though, I don't really think the PV suits the outfits too well... The outfits look mature (and the PV not so much XD).. I think the PV should have been darker.. I'd suit the outfits better! XD
*moving on :P* Yurina & Captain look the best in the PV (imo), Momoko, Maasa, & Risako also look pretty good... If Miya lost the headband or belt or whatever the hell that thing is on her head, than I think she'd look so much prettier.. I'm not feeling Chii's look here... I WANT HER LONG HAIR BACK!!! XD

Oh and about Yurina leading this single... Well, I was at first sorta turned off by the fact that she was leading it (Maybe that's why I disliked this song when i first listened to it.. There's a lot of Yurina XD), but now I'm ok with her leading it.. Yurina has never lead a single BY HERSELF before (She lead Waracchaou yo Boyfriend with Momoko... xD), so I think it's fair for her to be given a chance (and it gives us a break from Risako.. -SHOT- XD) ^^
The only complaint I really have with her leading this single is the fact that she's in the center in most of the dance... I may be being extremely biased when I say this, but I kinda wish Momo was center... XD

I don't usually rate singles, but I'll rate this one... I give it a 6.5/10. (I liked that it was more than dance shot and close up this time! ^^) XD


First poll is about Saki Nakajima...
I've noticed that she's sorta being pushed back lately (I mean line-wise), she's the one getting the least amount of lines in C-ute now (used to be Chisato), and I'm curious.. Do you guys think she should be pulled back up and given more lines (some people don't like Nakky's voice nor her singing, so they're not really bothered by her getting the least lines (they're probably over-joyed XD), but I find it sad). Let me know how you guys feel about it by voting on the poll... :D

2nd poll,
It's gonna be another "this girl versus that girl" poll, I got the idea for this poll from Chissaunderrated... This poll is gonna include5 girl's, 2 C-ute members, and 3 Berryz members.. XD

The title of the poll is "Who's version of Watarasebashi do you like better?"
Choices are Maimi, Momoko, Miyabi, Yurina, & Chisato... Vote wisely... ^^
(Miyabi's video is a bit too short.. but I think it can give you guys a good idea on how she pretty much sung the song.. :P)

I ain't
embed-ing the video's this time, click the links below (xD):

Maimi Yajima - Watarasebashi

Momoko Tsugunaga - Watarasebashi

Miyabi Natsuyaki - Watarasebashi

Yurina Kumai - Watarasebashi

Chisato Okai - Watarasebashi

Confessions Part 2

This is gonna be really short XD

1. I actually found H!P (Berryz and C-ute) in late 2007... but I started following them in mid-2008... LOL, from October 2007 - June 2008, I was just a casual fan.. I didn't care about any of the members, just listened to the group because of the music (In July 2008 everything changed though... Momoko became my favorite member of the group and I pretty much went from casual to hardcore *jk jk*) XD
2. When I said I disliked Mai's voice in nearly all the songs she's in, in part one of my confessions... I actually meant that I just disliked her voice in C-ute's concert tours.. I actually like Mai's voice in her solo events (I really liked her Natsu remember you & DESTINY LOVE), I just don't like her voice in C-ute's singles or concerts .. I like Mai's singing more when she's singing solo for some reason? O.O
3. I don't change my favorite members very often (Actually I don't change them at all really)... The only time I've ever changed favorite members would be with Airi and Nakky (Nakky became my fav C-ute member for 2 or 3 months.. but Airi overtook her and has become my fav C-ute member once again xD).
4. The only reason why Captain made it so high into my rankings was because of a "certain fanboy", this fanboy influenced my liking of her (his influence is slowly wearing off on me now though... I'm losing interest in Captain unfortunately...)
5. The reason why I originally created my HPKidsSoloEvents channel (for those of you who don't know.. Yes, that is my channel), was because I wanted to promote Momo's voice more, but I somehow ended up promoting all the members.. How odd.. :P

That's it for now XD

Poll results

A week ago I did TWO polls on whether you guys liked this or that girl's version of a certain song better..... And here are the results:

Which version of VERY BEAUTY do you like better?

Momoko Tsugunaga: 37 Votes
Risako Sugaya: 15 Votes

Momo has 22 votes over Risako..... lol, this is a clear win for Momo, is it not? xD
I thought Momo was gonna win (I was kinda sure of it.. xD), but I didn't think there would be this much of a gap between her and Risako.. O.O
Risako did well in the poll though (in the "Who's the best Berryz singer" poll, Risako gets 5 votes, while Miya & Momo get nearly 20 votes... So, yeah.. This is definitely an improvement for Risako compared to that poll ^^)
Congrats to Momo & her fans.. Woot! Woot! Momo won with an impressive number!! ^^

Onto the 2nd poll!!

Who's version of Zutto Suki de Ii desu ka is better?

Miyabi Natsuyaki: 23 Votes
Chisato Okai: 19 Votes

Miyabi beats Chisato by 4 votes..... Not bad!! ;D
I'd actually say the votes are pretty even compared to my MomoRii poll...
Miya & Chisa's versions are both equally good to my ears (I was gonna say eyes, but ears makes more sense 8D), so I'm happy to see that there's no big gap (I was sorta turned off seeing that big gap between Momo & Rii at first... *I'm happy now though... Momo FTW :P*)... xD
but anyways.. Congratulations to Miyabi and her fans (I will be making Miya a voice video for her victory btw :D)! ^^

Poll Winners:

Momoko the nerd girl:

Miyabi the sexy horse:

Polls are fun :P
Next poll coming soon ;D

Another new poll

So, instead of waiting for my current poll to end (I'm impatient, sorry), I've decided to just open another poll.. So, yeah.. 2 polls open at once now (that's new :P)... This new poll is gonna be another this member versus that member (I'm becoming really addicted to polls like that XD), It's gonna be on *DRUMROLL*...........
Miyabi & Chisato (I've never seen anyone versus these 2 up against each other, so this will be very interesting.. Much more interesting than the Momo & Rii poll :D).

The topic is: Who's version of "Zutto Suki de Ii desu ka" is better, Miyabi or Chisato's?

Miyabi Natsuyaki's version:

Chisato Okai's version:

The poll's gonna be open for one week, just like the Momoko & Risako poll... Vote wisely.. :P
(Both polls are open guys.. Remember that.. My Momo & Risako poll is open too :P)

New Poll

LOL. Time for a new poll (been a while since my last one)!!
The poll is gonna be another this member versus that member (I like those kind of polls) :P
This time it's on Momoko and Risako... I'm gonna do a poll asking everyone which version of VERY BEAUTY they like better, Momo's or Risako's (Just be honest guys.. You ain't hurting me xD) :D

Where did I get this idea from? Uhhh.. Someone I was chatting to on youtube recently.. xD
LOL. This part of that persons message inspired my new poll:
"And honestly, I like Risako's Very Beauty performance much better than Momo's, she sings it a bit too weird for me, sorry. I think it had a reason why Chinami!!! got that famous solo-line instead of Momo. But we are all biased, you know. On the other hand, Momo would sound better than Rii in Toma...ehm the other A-Side of WAO! imo!"

Yeah, the guy is a Risako fan (I think Archey may know who I'm talking about :P)! xD
but yeah... That's where my inspiration for my new poll came from.. This guy ^^
I hope you guys vote wisely. :D

Momoko Tsugunaga - VERY BEAUTY:

Risako Sugaya - VERY BEAUTY:

(To be honest.. I think it's a bit unfair to compare the versions to each other, because Risako's version sounds different from Momo's.. Like the music sounds a little different?..... O.O)

I'll leave the poll open for a week! ^^

Well... Kira & akari48 did one, so I figured why not do one myself... (good way to update my blog too :P) XD

1. I find Jpop music more listenable than American music (I really don't listen to American music nearly as much as I used to.. Jpop is like taking over for me.. It's kinda scary, but I'm liking the take-over oddly enough! XD)
2. Talking to Arche-JoIyo (an obsessed humble Risako fan :P), made me like Rii more (all of Risako's other fans made me hate her more... xDDD)!! ^^
3. Back in 2008, I used to dislike Airi's voice... it came off to me as somewhat unpleasant (It became WAY TOO nasally for my taste at that time.. xD), but now I quite like it (less nasally now.. :P)
4. I love photobooks.. I love bikini's and I love Momo's butt... I think she looks great in a bikini!!! And yeah I'M A GIRL AND I'M 16 YEARS OLD AND YES I DID JUST SAY I LOVE BIKINI'S!!!! :P
5. I found H!P though AKB48's Hirari Skirt :P
6. Sometimes...... I start to dislike a member not because of something she does... but like because of how her fans act... Some fans really annoy me... Like really bad... :P
7. I don't really remember why Momoko became my favorite member XD
8. Sometimes.. Miyabi rivals Momo for position as my favorite H!P member (and Berryz member).... Even though I put Miyabi as my least favorite member in the H!P Kids.... (So odd, right? xD)
9. I often used to get into lots of arguments with other fans because I used to be too blunt with my opinions (Like... If I thought a girl sucked... I would just say it.. I wouldn't sugar-coat it or anything... I would just say it straight out.. like "Damn, she sucks!!!!" XD)
10. I used have a fetish for sailor uniforms... I loved them so much!! xD
11. I think Momo's thunder thighs are sexy.. :P
12. *prepares to be shot at* I still think Risako needs to lose weight... She'd look better :P
13. I never liked Nakajima Saki because of her personality or her dancing.. I liked her because I thought she was cute.. and that's it.. :P
14. I actually dislike Mai's voice in almost every song she's in.. Even though I made a video titled "Mai's adorable voice" (I was on crack when I made that... XD) :P
15. I like Chisato's singing more than Airi's even though I think Airi is the better singer....
16. I like AKB48's new single, Beginner.. :P
17. I still think Maimi's boring and personality-less.
18. I ignore nearly every release that is MM.. :P
19. Once LinLin leaves MM, I hope the group disbands.. :P
20. I think Miyabi is sexy.. and I think she's a bitch in real life... Miyabitch.. :P
21. Whenever I have nothing to do... I immediately start thinking of H!P.. XD
22. I think Airi has no ass, and is as flat as a cardboard... but I love her bikini pics (Am I turning into a lesbo or something? xD)
23. I like Beckii Cruel and I'm subscribed to her channel and I keep up with all her and the Cruel girl's releases.. Ha! :P

And that's it.. Mostly H!P confessions XD
Feels good to say all of that.. ^^ I hope no one hates me now though.. xD

Chisato's 1st PB & DVD + poll results!

Chisato Okai's first photobook and DVD has been announced. The release date is December 22nd. ^^

Here are a few preview (bikini xD) pics of it from her ustream show:

*drools* I really like the Pink & blue bikini!! Chisato has a great figure for bikini's (imho)! :P XD
(I am curious though.. Why does everyone in C-ute except Nakky get a solo image DVD with their photobook?? Does UFA hate Nakky or think she's not profitable enough for one? o.o)

About last months poll... (The poll was "Vocal battle: Airi Suzuki vs Chisato Okai" just in case anyone forgot) Guess what, you guys? :P
Chisato won! :D

I remember doing a poll similar to this one last year (when I first made my blog), and on that poll Airi had like 10 votes over Chisato!! :O
It's very interesting to see how other fans opinions on things change over time! xD

Poll results:
Chisato Okai: 64 Votes
Airi Suzuki: 62 Votes

Total number of votes: 126
(LOL, this is the most votes I've ever gotten on a poll... I usually get like 50 votes.. SUGOI! This poll result is amazing!! XD)

Congrats to Chisato (and her fans) on winning my poll, and congrats to Chisa on getting her first PB & DVD! This year really does seem to be a great year for Chisa!! ^^

*noob mode*
And just because the Airi vs Chisato thing will never stop (so long as their in the same group together, there will always be comparisons, especially in singing :P).. XD
Let's have another comparison (-SHOT-):

Chisato Okai - Aa Koi


Airi Suzuki - Aa Koi -

Risako Sugaya (Ibu Himuro) - Elegant Girl CM

Need something to post on my blog... (It's been a while since I posted.. too long imo.. :P) 8D

Gorgeous! Risako looks so gorgeous.. And elegant (XD) in the CM... The song is pretty cool too (I need to hear more of it to really make judgment though :P)

Looking forward to the full PV & song of Risako's elegant girl XD

Poll Time: Airi vs Chisato

LOL. The new poll is called.... *drum roll* Airi Suzuki vs Chisato Okai!!! XD
This poll was actually my friends idea, not mine!! XD

The poll is a vocal battle btw (vocals not personality, dance skills, or acting skills and blah blah blah.. VOCALS). Who's the OVERALL better singer, Chisato Okai or Airi Suzuki?! ;)

Chisato Okai =

(One of my favs from her solo events... Her vibrato is just ♥♥♥)

(Me likey this video! Chisa owns Sweets! XD)

(Honestly, she didn't really sing this as well as I thought she would, so I gotta say this is not one of her bests, but it's still pretty good! better than Miyabi, Maimi & Yurina's version imo! :D)

(Lovely! This in my opinion is her best performance from her 6th solo event! LOL, I actually like Chisa's version of this song better than LinLin, Airi, & Saki Oagwa's version! XD ^^)

Time for Airi-san! ^^

(I was gonna post Tsuugaku Vector instead of this, but meh... I honestly don't really like Tsuugaku all that much... I don't think it really shows Airi's vocal talent, and... I think as a song.. it's pretty boring, so I went for Zansho Omimai Moshiagemasu instead... This is my fav Airi solo song! It owns all the other solo songs she sings... Even Aa Koi! :P)

(LOL, what can I say?? I really like this performance.. I like the way she shouts "Aa!"!! XDDD)

(LOL. Me likey this video a lot! Airi singing Hoshi no Hitsuji Tachi & Bishoujo Shinri solo is full of win.. Especially since those 2 songs are considered her songs... Especially Bishoujo Shinri! XD)

(Airi's really putting a lot of emotion into her singing here, nee? LOL)

I'm gonna leave the poll up for about 2 weeks... (I usually leave it for about 4 or 5 days... xD)
Plz choose wisely! :P
I ain't telling you guys who I voted for (although you can probably make a good guess at who! xD), not until the results are in! xD
