Not so long ago in a place not so far away…(cue Tsunku's version of "Koko ni iruzee!")…(cue laughter) Just kidding! 😛
This is what happens when the mind wanders…
Episode I The Hairstylist Menace: A young boy is found to be extraordinarily strong with the force and Gotou Maki cuts her hair and then shoots her first "Alo-Hello!" DVD. :O
Episode II Attack of the Scissors: It is found out that the little green one moves very quickly despite the use of a cane and Kamei cuts her hair and then releases her 2nd shashinshuu. :O
Episode III Revenge of the Hair: The little one now grown up must struggle between the darkness of really bad dialog & really bad acting while Gotou Maki's hair has now grown back to a nice long length. 🙂
Episode IV A New Hairstyle: The big bad one with asthma now rules the galaxy mercilessly while secretly building the most awesome haircutting device anyone has ever seen…the flobee and Ayaya cuts her hair shortly after joining GAM. :O
Episode V The Beauty Shop Strikes Back: Kamei finds out that Tsunku is her neighbor's uncle's half-brother's cousin's mechanic's good friend from down the street and Rikachan cuts her hair and Biyuuden releases their 7th single. :O
Episode VI Return of the Hair: A cast of thousands including a lot of Snuggle teddy bears help to restore peace and order in the galaxy and Kamei's hair is at the perfect length again. 🙂
And now for the real reason I'm writing this post. Here are some scans from the August 2007 issue of Kindai.
First are a couple of scans from a Summer drama article featuring Arashi's Nino & Shokun.
Tackey & Fukayon together again in a drama! They actually make a very cute couple and hey there's even a kid!
Berryz Koubou is also featured in this issue as they promote their latest single "Kokuhaku no funsui hiroba." I really like these outfits and it looks like Risakochan may have gone ghetto with her hand sign. lol.
Kindai is starting a feature on C-ute where in each issue a different member will be spotlighted. Maimai is the first member to be featured and you can see her ham it up for the camera here in this article. Sometimes it seems like there's an older person trapped in that little body. Heheh maybe it's just that she has a kind of mature looking face.
And these last 3 scans are of one of my favorite idol/actress/singers Ueto Aya. I have all of her album & single releases and I recommend that you check out some of her music as she's really great! She looks so cute in these pictures and was awesome in the movie "Azumi" where she kicked some serious butt! Make sure it's the first movie as the sequel wasn't quite as good but still very entertaining.
At the very bottom are a couple of her PVs. These are 2 of my favorite songs by her: "Message" and "Afuresouna ai, daite."
