Saying Long Goodbye to Tokyo Girls’ Style?


Could it be? Has the time come for my wallet to be saved? Is this goodbye to my favourite Idol group ‘Tokyo Girls’ Style’? Yeah, sure this blog is all about AKB48 (Yukirin really if I am being truthful) but there is no denying the fact that not even the 48G combined has taken as much money from me as TGS has! I believe I have said it before but ever since I got into TGS, I have purchased every single release of theirs!

But now it seems that they have apparently graduated from being Idols and into artists, whatever the hell that implies for us, especially the international fans! The last single before the latest is all making kinds of sense right about now! First of all this means there won’t be TGS in this year’s Idol Festival! And though this might mean more tour releases, I am gonna miss the perks of being an Idol! Like, why did they even decide to do that? This is like the Idol revolution times we live in! I have a feeling many artists have a grudge against Idols these times and yet TGS decided to diss Idoling (no pun intended) for artists?! I don’t get it!

And everything was looking promising for them having just broken into the movie-verse with their first two hit movies! And all this after I was ready to kneel down and worship the good Lord for the miracle that is the latest single (Stay With Me)! Let me tell you about ‘Stay With Me’! You won’t believe it but that song was written by none other than Miyu herself! That’s right, the Yamabe Miyu of Tokyo Girls’ Style! And though at first it might seem like a message to fans, I take it the other way as usual! The catalyst being that Hiichan (Arai Hitomi) is like the solo singer of the song where as the others are just support and only pitch in during the choruses! And so I am sitting there and thinking – Miyu wrote this song! Hiichan is singing this song! Conclusion?

Is there even a need to say it? Me think not!

So anyway I bought their 1st Major Album Kirari that has all their songs to date! Spent over 100 bucks on this but really, what’s new? Not that I could have done any less seeing as they included Blurays and this was like their closure to their Idol life! I am really torn as to what to feel or do really!

Any way, in addition to TGS SWAG as usual, I also bought the next movie in the Jinroh series ‘Beast Side’ starring Irie Saaya! Of course it wasn’t just Saaya that got me to buy this, nope, there is that little fact that the previous movie tickled my shipper soul especially with that ending and I am so bitter that we did not get the actual sequel to it! It left the story so very open-ended but just like Rie and Joker Game, this is a different story with different characters, which is really sad! But then there is that supporting character list that has the very fabulous Morikawa Aoi and our new girl Aoyama Misato! I of course was going to get this no matter what, also the fact that I love Asian Horror helped! Absolutely can’t wait to watch all this goodness!

More TGS goodness has arrived!

20140512_020401 20140512_015906

So, being a creature of the night when I have days off, I wake up tonight (on Sunday at 2am) and guess what I find downstairs on the dining table? A small box with my name on it and a super priority sticker on top! Totally flabbergasted seeing as this is Sunday and we never get things done around here during weekends, I carefully approached the box thinking it must be a joke! Seeing as I have a couple of orders waiting to arrive, I was actually lost as to what was in the box until I saw that it was from Japan and I just knew.

As you can see there are only two items in this order but do not be fooled! This cost me over 10, 000yen (or over 100 euro!)! Seriously! The PB is not the one responsible though, that is in normal price! It’s the BD for their Budokan Concert for last year that got me! There was of course a cheaper version that was almost half the price but if I am going to buy something, I very well have to get the best my money can get me! So I went for this Special 3 Disc edition with lots of extras! Cost me a lot but no regrets here! As long as I still have enough money for movie night this Thur for Godzilla I am all good!

Any way, that PB though >.< Quite a lot of Meiting/Aachan  than I was expecting and not a lot of HitoMiyu as I was expecting too. Since this is a PB, it has to be careful not to spoil things so I think this is good in a way. I want to be blown away when I get to watch the movie! Do not cry about the quality too, for rest be assured once my exams are over, I will be sharing HQ scans! Speaking of which, first one is in a couple of hours so best leg it outta here.

東京女子流 _ 16th Single「十字架 〜映画「学校の怪談 -呪いの言霊-」Ver.〜」MV SPOT - YouTube.mp4 - 00002

Awwww yeaaaaah! My girls are back with yet another awesome single and PV to go along with it. I mean not that I expected any less from them. After all this time I should know that whatever they bring to the table is going to be great!

Now I can hear a few of you mumbling to yourselves wondering then why I did not post about the last single released in Jan – Partition Love. Well, it seems that there is this other formula that is trending with TGS which is that they from time to time release a single that even though the music is awesome, the PV sometimes leaves a divided audience reaction. And so I was so not very fond of Partition Love’s PV and its theme. It was of course about romance and not in that awesome ‘Love Like Candy Floss’ kinda of way! Nope! In the kind where Aachan and Hitomin are fighting over this new male teacher!


But that wasn’t the only nay thing about Partition Love PV. There was absolutely no dance shots in it! And let me tell you this – Partition Love’s dance is really, really awesome! Thanks to God that they performed it LIVE at Budokan and I am waiting the Bluray for that concert to arrive (which should be next week if CD Japan doesn’t let me down yo!). The same goes for LolitA ~ Strawberry in Summer’! The LIVE versions of these songs trump on their PV counterparts and erase them out of existence!

And speaking of TGS Swag, their 4th album – Killing me Softly, is being released in June and of course I already pre-ordered the BD version of that! So look forward to another Dance MV then as it is to sure be done! Oh, there is another surprise in what’s arriving next week in the mail but let’s save that for later, eh?

[TGS] Well, that escalated quickly…

5 tsu kazoereba kimi no yume 5つ数えれば君の夢

Do other people decide what’s in your heart?
I want to know what you are feeling from your own lips.
I just thought you would see the real me with your own eyes.
                                                          -Hitomin to Miyu’s character

So, now that the movie is out in theatres in Japan, not only do we get a longer trailer but we also get a teaser for the second Movie project of our girls that is horror themed. That’s right, TGS are starring in two movies and I bet you the will be released on DVD and BD at the same time even though the Horror movie, titled – Gakkou no Kaidan: Noroi no Kotodama 学校の怪談 呪いの言霊, won’t be in cinemas until summer.

First though, let’s talk about the first movie for spring that I already posted about…

My girls! How fast they grew up! And their songs and PV mature with them too which I really like! First few singles were all about bright/white clothes, then they went purple and now they are all BLACK!

I love it!

I was really looking forward to LIFE SIZE though, after I saw their TIF 2013 performance of it! I hope it will be on their third album but that’s a long wait! I hear that LIFE SIZE is an anime song? Does anyone know for which anime? Maybe it is already available somewhere? I really love LIFE SIZE.

Any way, these caps are from one of the double A-sides of their 13th single – Get The Star/Last Forever! It seems, strangely, that Yuri the Vampire Loli is at the helm of this one. She brings us both the OP and ED sequence and seems to have quite the most focus in this PV. I really love this. I mean it is a 5 member group so centre position isn’t that important but I was kind of moved to say the least.

No, I am not hoping for a Miyu centre in the future…NOPE! Seriously, I ain’t! I don’t think they can master a cool enough single for her to lead anyway. Maybe another yuri PV with her an Mei? I know they love these two together. If Hiichan will agree to it that is.

I can’t wait for my order to arrive that has this single. Only waiting on the soon to be released movie for it to ship. The PV looks as great as TGS PVs are expected! Seriously, compared to their PVs production efforts, AKB48’s looks…Sigh.What do they do with all that money?! I mean if it looks like this in a TVRip, Can you just imagine the eyegasm of the Bluray version?!! Darn it, Third Album when!?!!

Any way, caps…

Tokyo Girls’ Style and T-ara Goodness

img001 img002 img003

Aww yeah~ Life sure is GUD right about now!

Part 1 of my triple ship order just came in. It includes Tokyo Girls’ Style’s Budokan Performance last December! I tell you now guys if there is a group whose works deserve the quality it is TGS! If it’s available I will take the best quality from TGS products. Yes, I am implying that if they release 4K videos I will slave myself to get that 4K Monitor or TV whichever is available. Yes, I am aware the cheapest 4K TV now costs more than a car but who needs cars?!

Any way this shipment has the Budokan concert, one I am most excited for (All those secrets spilled!) an T-ara’s Mook! Sadly Dani is not an official member yet so she isn’t included! Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that this is a Japanese Mook and when they were making it Dani wasn’t with them? Nah!

I just can’t wait to watch that Budokan Concert though. Which reminds me, I still have to post caps from the last Bluray Concert (Rock You)! Yes, delicious LolitA Strawberry in Summer in super high QualitA!

But that’s not all. Guess whose photo I received with the BD from HMV.JP?



That’s right fellas, it’s my TGS Oshi the one and only –  Leader Miyu, Yamabe Miyu!

She totally makes this purchase all that more satisfying!

The second shipment will include Mayuyu’s 2nd PB and other stuff while the third will bring me the 21 AKB48 single for Senbatsu voting…and other stuff!

Sigh…Life couldn’t be more perfect.
