The August 2007 issue of Kindai and the first pressing of the regular edition of Berryz Koubou's new album "4th Ai no nanchara shisuu" came from Amazon Japan while everything else came from CdJapan. I originally had just ordered the limited edition of BK's new album which comes with a bonus DVD but then I realized that the first pressing of the regular edition comes with interchangeable cover sleeves (one for each member and a group shot). I then checked CdJapan but they were already sold out of this edition's first pressing so I took a chance and ordered it from Amazon Japan. They don't indicate whether the first pressing is still available or not so I had my fingers crossed that the first pressing would arrive and luckily it did. Yesterday Berryz Koubou's new album was the first thing into my CD player. I'll put up the jacket pictures and some thoughts on the album tomorrow afternoon. The extra jackets are really cute!
And speaking of C-ute I finally will be able to watch the original version of their PV for "Meguru koi no kisetsu" as well as their "dance version." I've been living off of their "close up version" all this time and I'm really looking forward to playing these 2 other versions of their PV tonight.
Sayu's "Love-Hello!" DVD also arrived yesterday and it looks like 73 minutes of cuteness is just around the corner.
Tackey's live musical release "Takizawa enbujo" is packaged really beautifully in a nice heavy duty golden slip case. This release has 2 DVDs and also came with a great looking poster! There's 174 minutes of footage all shot in widescreen format. I really enjoyed Momusu's musicals "Morning Town" and "Ribbon no kishi" and I'm hoping that Tackey's musical will be just as great.
If I had some wall space in my room I think I'd hang up this poster. It looks really cool.
