Press viewing of Meimi's Minako play. She nailed Amazing Grace. (Saying wretch is suuuper hard for any Japanese singer) but she's a little shakey on Minako's early work.

Wow! Thanks for posting that.

 

What's the first song she sings in that clip?

 

And why does it say 8/18/17 in the lower right hand corner of the screen during that clip?

 

Thanks.

That's when the DVD will be released, I believe. It did say "DVD" beside the date.

She did really well with getting the feel of old J-pop voice, though. Her "de" drove me crazy (in a good way) with how accurate it was.

 

Wishing it was a larger and more elaborate stage... But I guess not everything can be a Wicked or Les Miserables. At least her play sold out... That's pretty nice in itself. She also said she wore the same clothes Hinako had worn.

The first song is called 1986 Nen No Marilyn, it's one of Honda Minako's earliest songs. Also one of my favorites and fun fact, it was written by 48 man, Yasushi Akimoto.

 

 

and Woooooo THIS IS GETTING A DVD I'm STOKED!

Bitter&Sweet's MV for Shashin no Nokoranai Shoot.

 

This is their major debut and fourth overall. They both have really nice voices, it's a shame they're an UFP group and getting the kind of attention that comes with that. Four singles in three and a half years is pathetic. This is their first single in two years.

Meimi's next role will be Kiki Watson in Grand Guignol. It's about vampires.

Grand Guignol is the story of Lord Dali, one of the side characters in the Lilium prequel.  Just FYI. 

 

Also, links for Meimi's play DVD are out.  The limited edition costs an extra 2000 yen, and includes audio of the stage songs.  No tracklist yet.

Thanks for the heads-up, Kitaoji.

 

(That's all I need: another expensive CDJapan purchase, joining the C-ute Single Collection + Blu-ray and Momoko's multi-disc album.)

 

(Update: the Momoko 3-disc album isn't that expensive: $33.50 on CDJapan now.)

Question: I listened to C-ute's album, 3rd ~Love Escalation!, at the gym today, first time in years, and I was intrigued by track #10, a matsuri-type song. When I got home, I checked the tracklist and the song is called "Do Don ga Don Ondo," and is sung by "Tension Ageko," with C-ute providing back vocals. Who or what is Tension Ageko? Well, it's Erika Umeda and here's what it says in her page on Generasia:

 

 

Within C-ute, Umeda was not so prominently featured in songs, but in concerts she would play as Tension Ageko, a character in skits where she would

 

And that's it. The entry ends abruptly and there's no more about it.

 

The song is performed in two concerts, both of which I have, so I will dig them out and watch those performances to clear up the mystery of the "skits where she would--"...?

 

In the likely case that even then I won't figure it out, can anyone fill in what's missing from the Generasia entry?

 

Thanks.

I really don't watch C-ute concerts, but during their Cutie Cute Circuit events they would do little MC skits. All the girls had characters that they would play in them. Erika's was Tension Ageko.

 

Other ones I can remember are Yajima as a manager, MC Kappa, MC Chissa, and DJ Maimai.

I didn't expect Meimi to grow up and not have that constantly awkward and confused facial expression she used to have anymore.

Nacky's using her Instagram now.

 

Looks like she will be playing around with it to practice her hobby of photography. She also has the most adorably pathetic looking cat.

Japanese cats are 50% cuter than all other cats, and I don't know why that is.

This is why you buy mutts.

I can't own a cat, so I'm a dog person through and through.

That sucks. My wife and I have two dogs -- one from the pound, and one from a foster family. There are so many dogs that need homes, and literally any dog you get is going to love you just as much as any other dog. It's just their nature. Dogs are the best.

Well said, and I agree!

 

All of my pets have been rescues, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I've never had a cat except for a very brief stint with a rescued kitten when I was a teenager, but I still think dogs are the best things ever.
