Late last night I realized that I had indeed forgotten to list some H!P merchandise and releases in my "Hello! Project Collection" post. H!P stuff is all over my room and in my attempt to get them all together I overlooked all of these.
Here is the final picture of my collection…I think. The 24 pictures at the bottom were a part of a great gift package that Paul Thomas sent me recently. The pictures from my photo binders that I linked in my previous post were taken awhile back and I had forgotten about these new ones which I got later and put into my "Kamei binder" (4th binder). Also in this picture is a mini tanaka photo album which was also a gift from Paul, 4 Christmas CD gift boxes featuring Minimoni, Gomattou, Yukosan, and Momusu which CdJapan sent me one year awhile back during Christmas, a couple of Momusu keychains which I bought from an ABC Store back when they briefly joined in on the Momusu mania, a first press edition of Pinch Runner on VHS which came with a 3 postcard set (VHS lol!), Momusu's First Budoukan concert on VHS, Momusu's "Memory Seishun no hikari 1999.4.18" VHS, 2 copies of Momusu's "The Video Love Machine" on VHS which features extra footage not included on the DVD PV version (I'm not even quite sure why I have 2 copies of this video…one is still sealed…perhaps I was so in love with "Love Machine" that I felt the need to have one copy kept in mint condition…lol…I don't know but I have 2 of them), a Nacchi linen box (this was another great gift from Paul! It's perhaps the most original H!P item that I've ever seen…linen box 🙂 ), and 2 clear files one of Tanpopo and another of Minimoni during the Aichan era. These were also a gift from CdJapan that they sent me awhile ago.
One thing to note about those VHS releases that I have. Back then music releases in Japan weren't being made on DVD yet so VHS was the only way to go since I've never owned a laserdisc player. Today we have the PV DVD single. Back then we had the PV VHS single. Sounds funny doesn't it. :)
