How about a break from all the dance vids when it comes to TGS?
Beautiful Small PB is beautiful! Not small as in size but in pages. This is a full A4 sized PB but sadly just like the one from Mille fuille, this is a 40p one. It is to be expected of course seeing as they are sold along with the CDs and usually you get little booklets with those.
If only other groups followed this trend as well. CDs would be flying off the shelves, especially those theatre editions that don’t have DVDs with them.
Anyway, this time around there was a lack of yuri but I guess it is to balance out things from the Mille fuille PB as, while that had plenty of yuri, the quality was way below average! Like someone was drunk while they took those photos or something. This time we don’t have much yuri but the quality is top class! I guess what I am trying to say is that I am not complaining. I am not into TGS, they are not my favourite Idol (excusé, former Idol group) just because of the yuri!
Also HitoMiyu, I am disappoint this time around! MeiYuri has beaten you in this round! Come on, do something! I can’t believe you let MeiYuri get away with such a killer combo (hand-holding)! Sure they have ‘yuri’ in their ship name but still, you are supposed to be the IT!
Enough talk, jump over for the other few pages of these lovely
girls women. Hiichan, the youngest has already graduated from High School, like, how time flies!
For some reason Amazon JP ‘no longer ships to my address’ products that just months ago would be shipped! Seriously, like I literally got TGS’s Special Edition for Mille Fuille, their last single, with that A4 photobook just fine but now it is suddenly not possible? Some movies too I can’t seem to be able to get, like, what even Amazon?!
But then I remembered that I there are other options, options that I already hold an account for, like HMV and so I decided to drop by. Queue my surprise that not only do they ship said items to my address, and not only are they even cheaper than Amazon (I kid you not!) but they also beat Amazon’s Priority shipping speed!
I am sitting here right now, baffled, wondering why I have been so focused on Amazon that I failed to give HMV my money. Now that I remember, I think it had to do with the Fedex thing, which I think is already resolved, where they brought goods to your door but asked for money before you could get them, like, take care of that business before you come to my door, seriously!
Now though it is smooth sailing apparently and from other things that happened while I was on HMV JP, I am seriously debating on cutting off my relationship with Amazon. I mean, when I was ordering NGT’s first single (Like I could miss it for the world), they had options of buying a set that has towels and muffler (which I ordered, duh). Good luck getting that deal on Amazon and even getting it to ship to your country!
Seriously, if they had the NGT NIII Party LIVE Bluray, I would be married to HMV right this moment!
Why do companies turn to shit when they get big? I don’t get it!
Anyway, this time around I got my self X21’s first album (with PVs and a LIVE in Blu-ray goodness), Idol Renaissance’s 4th Live in Zepp DiverCity on Blu-ray and Tokyo Girl’s Style’s PreDawn SE CD with another A4 photobook.
Yes, I am an Idol Renaissance fan, already even have a ship (see below) and if you are not following them on YouTube, get to it! Their’s is the 2nd best Idol management (next to TGS of course). Seriously they even give us these pairing videos. for example, my ship (KoyoMai – Koyoi x Maina) is already on Vol.8. They also have another group AIS, which is almost similar and kind of the Imouto of Renaissance and you bet, I have a ship there already as well in Serena (Sera x Rena).
Can’t wait to see Renaissance’s LIVE in glorious Full HD. Their YouTube short Live videos are so good! Anyway, over for some teaser pics of KoyoMai…
I was so not ready for that Pre-Dawn PV!
Thank you Avex, only other ship that hasn’t let me down yet other than Mayuki is HitoMiyu and OKAY that’s it! HitoMiyu are getting their own fan-vid!
Thank you blessed Avex and Co. We do not deserve your love but you keep on giving and giving! Thank you!
Such a small thing this PB is yet so awesome! I say small but only in the terms of the number of pages we got (at just over 30) but the size of the pages was A4!! I ain’t even mad at the poor quality of the photos, it was even probably on purpose! I am just so happy that once again they throw us fans a bone!
If only other Idol production companies followed your example! Know what your fans want (ship) and give them it! We got the ships we love in HitoMiyu and MeiYuri and even some crack yaoi in MiYuri and the inevitable threesome in HitoMiyuMei (Someone in Management ships MiyuMei hard).
It is so little a thing but oh so sweet! Indeed, great things come in small packages! Really, favourite JPop Group right here Ladies and gentlemen! And as promised, jump over ahead for the scans.
Seriously, this year is starting off at a pretty great start as far as I am concerned! There I was thinking that the drama version of Saki would be starting next month (it is still officially starting/commencing next month) when BAM!! not only do I find that there are Blurays already on sell, making think that they would be doing the Netflix thing and dump the whole series on Bluray (Bluray people!!!!) but then I found out that four episodes had already aired!!! Three of which had been subbed already (as of yesterday)!!?!
God bless you Japan! Seriously, God bless you!
On top of that, Avex decided to finally make available the Premium Set of TGS’ gey movie and right then I was totally sold! Me believes, dear Readers, that 2017 might just give 2016 a run for its money. Now of course there is no beating the year that gave us ‘Ahgassi/ The Handmaiden’ but really, that is not a fair fight. But when we talk about who is coming close, then I have a feeling that 2017 is looking pretty promising!
I of course already binge watched the Saki subbed episodes but 720p is so five years ago! If a better quality exists you bet ya I’ma gonna be getting it and I did! Not only do I get to enjoy the gayness in super awesome raw quality but I get to enjoy the behind the scenes that come only with the special editions (which I got, duh).
And with that, if you will excuse me, I need to go feed my soul (It feeds off yuri and quality).
I am so happy early this year and I hope you all are too.
My New Year Swag is here which is why I am so hyper. I am still waiting on just one thing to arrive, which should have been today too but alas, don’t know what happened there, but once it does, I will share more on the contents of my purchases this time around.

And the one I am waiting for to arrive is The Premium Box for TGS’s 5Tsu Movie! Yes, Finally got my hands on it! TGS Management, I love so very much! I don’t know what changed your mind, whether you listened to our whining or what, but whatever made you change your mind about making the Premium Edition available online, thank you!!! You are still the best at Fan servicing!
Anyway, I gotta run, too busy these days…
