THIS WEEK IN ERIPON (20.04.2014-26.04.2014)

OKAY! Stop the bleeding! In the next few days I’m going to catch up on all the Ikuta Erina blogs, I swear. April and May are the busiest months at my job, so I had a feeling I would need to play catch up. To be honest I can’t believe that I held on until the third week in April. Here goes nothing!

I must say, Eripon: I approve of your zippy!

Company dinner. Eripon, Masaki, and Sakura have the best faces … and Haruka looks like a handsome young boy.

THIS WEEK IN ERIPON (15.04.2014-19.04.2014)

Hey! I’m relatively punctual this week! Not that anyone is counting on these posts where I compile Ikuta Erina’s blog photos. You can get these photos anywhere, right? Thanks for stopping by on my site. Don’t forget you can always click the dates for each post to get the actual blog post from Eripon.

This one made it to my twitter. It’s two dimensions of Eripon; which makes this a multidimsional musume photo!

Just goofing at the Tower Records.

Toobin #2- Hello! Station 60, UF Licks 58

Another week, another edition of Toobin. This week, I’m treated to some LoVendoR, Bitter & Sweet, Sato no Akari, Morning Musume ’14, and S/mileage. Along the way we have some KanaTomo the sadist, Hatsune Miku for Juice=Juice gen 2, and Eripon choosing disgusting canned food.

Let’s GO!

Toobin #1 – Hello Station 59

I enjoy live tweeting my idol viewing. Is that so wrong? In a lazy, blatant rip-off of idolminded’s wonderful daily column, I present my tweets to you.

Here’s what went down when I watched Hello Station #59.

Hello! Station #49

So, I had diarrhea of the keyboard today as I was watching Hello! Station #49. If you follow my blog, you know that I’ve abandoned my write-ups for the show. Too time intensive, too much schedule. I still watch the show every week, I just don’t report on my viewings. What’s taken the place of these write-ups is Twitter. Specifically, I’ve taken to tweeting as I watch these shows. There’s a story being told here … and so I thought I’d bring that story to this blog. Taking a page from Idolminded, I’ll try to bring you those tweets. It may be amusing, it might be boring; it’s an experiment! Before you delve into the tweets, here’s Hello! Station #49.

Hello! Pro Kenshuusei – “Ten Made Nobore”


Let’s get it out of the way: this is a low budget PV. There is nothing to see here other than the girls in a white cyc dancing. Nope, not even a dance shot/one shot PV! And for plot- forget about it. Giving the trainee unit a “better” PV is probably a waste of precious resource. This does seem to be the start of something bigger, though. Hello! Project Kenshuusei (trainees) never got their own song before, let alone a PV. Since the PV we’re looking at is the “Zero-edit version”, a proper PV should be a few days away.

Hello! Station 20 – A Viewer’s Guide

This is a change. From all I’ve been reading on twitter, Hello! Station #20 episode is packed with PVs! Well, I’ll be writing a long form review for two of the PV’s in this episode, so don’t expect more than a few words in this viewer guide. Continue reading

Hello! Station 16- a Viewer’s Guide

Another week of Nakanishi Kana! This edition is packed with performances, and like last week, Kanana keeps the action coming at a decent pace. These performances seem to all come from Hello! Project’s recent Premium Live at Hibiya.
Opening to Hibiya premium live. Not much to say.

5:05 things get rolling with the new Kenshuusei/Juice single. I didn’t expect Continue reading
