…so that I'd be able to enjoy more J-Pop releases. The days go by so quickly it seems and before I know it it's time to go to sleep.
The above 14 releases arrived on Thursday and yet I've only been able to listen to C-ute's single and Yukosan's single which is really nice and I need to write about it soon. There's a lot of releases that I was looking forward to receiving in this shipment which also includes: Arashi's new concert release "Arashi Around Asia + in Dome." This is a 2 DVD set and I made a goofy decision by ordering both the limited edition which comes with a great looking booklet as well as the regular edition as I thought it may have different cover art work. As I now see the cover is quite generic and they're both the same with the exception that the limited edition's cover is textured. If anyone would like the regular edition I'll send it to you for just the cost of the DVD set with no other additional shipping cost. Heheh I'll probably be stuck with this extra copy. Ah the song lineup is incredible with a lot of their newer songs also present. I must watch Arashi soon!
Ayaya's new album "Double Rainbow" is also in this shipment and I was able to get the limited edition which comes in a nice slipcase but I haven't opened it up yet. New Ayaya songs! 😀 And the cover makes me think of Hawaii with her wearing a beautiful flower lei!
Biyuuden's new limited edition single and pv DVD single has finally arrived as well. I've read so much about this release already and it must find it's way into the DVD player soon as well. The covers look really sexy!
Hello! Project's 10th anniversary 2007 Summer concert release contains 2 DVDs!! I'm hoping that they shot this one in higher resolution as they did with last year's H!P concert which was Konkon & Makochan's graduation concert. For some reason that concert just looks much much more crisp than any other H!P concert release. The fact that this new concert is on 2 discs makes me think that they didn't skimp on video quality. The first disc is 125 minutes while the second disc is 46 minutes!! This will make for a very enjoyable evening when I get the chance to finally watch it.
Arashi's movie "Kiiroi Namida" is one that I've been waiting to watch as well. With the entire group in this film it's sure to be a fan's dream! This one came with special packaging and bonus DVD with making of features that hopefully has cast interviews as well!
Tackey & Tsubasa's Best of album came in 3 versions and because I wanted all of the extras I had to order all 3 of them. Johnnys really knows how to entice a fan into ordering more than one edition or is it just me? I'm a sucker for extras. :P All 3 cds are identical but the bonuses are great. One comes with a DVD containing a music clip medley of all of their singles as well as a "History of Tackey & Tsubasa" which covers them from their debut. The DVD is 69 minutes! Another version comes with a bonus CD which contains 10 extra songs from T&T's early career including both members as well as solo works. The 3rd version includes a bonus track "Daydreamer" as well as a photo booklet!
Along with Yukosan's new single, her new concert DVD release also arrived. "Type-Y 2007 Birthday Live" is another incredible looking 2 DVD set!! And I love the song lineup as there are some very Yukosan unlikely numbers here such as "Go Girl~ koi no victory~" & "Hajimete Happy Birthday!" I can't imagine her singing these types of songs and it will be pure joy to watch. 😀 The first disc is 115 minutes while the second disc is 68 minutes! Lots of love for Yukosan!
Now if only I can find all the time I need to watch and listen to these…maybe I need a vacation to consume everything. I'll be writing my thoughts on each release hopefully soon.
