With Ongaku Gatas' 2nd single just 3 weeks away I'm feeling a great deal of excitement in anticipation of seeing how this already great unit has developed since their debut release. As the end of the year nears I'm already figuring "Narihajimeta koino bell" to be in my top 10 favorite Hello! Project songs of 2007 along with Buono!'s "Honto no jibun." Manoeri and Noto Arisa seemed to really excel in their debut release and of course a lot of that was in the hands of the producers as they in particular featured Erina in the song & pv. The H!P Egg it girl has struck a powerful chord among fans and yours truly was hit on the head as well in the process. The doctor says that a Manoeri level concussion may last for years and it may not be safe to get back on the playing field anytime soon although the possibility of me once again being able to bid on Yahoo! Japan Auctions looks quite promising at the moment. It looks like Manoeri has developed an alternate version of Sayu's "usachan peace." 🙂
The top 5 photos are official Up Front Agency photos which Ohta was able to purchase for me from the official Hello! Project site after I loss a "match" while attempting to become the UEFC (Ultimate Egg Fighting Champion) on Yahoo! Japan Auctions. And just how much can a Manoeri photo go for these days? Fresh off of her Ongaku Gatas debut I witnessed an auction on a single photograph go for an impressively scary 3700 yen!! A fan probably taking note of this was able to capitalize on his great fortune of being able to attend Ongaku Gatas' debut fan event by taking some photos of his own and then selling them on auctions. The 16 photos below the UFA set are the product of this brilliant idea and it worked very well on me as I bidded on one of the sets he was offering and fortunately was able to attain it with a co-high bid of just 2400 yen.
The fan caught quite a few amusing Manoeri expressions and Yossi along with Noto Arisa can be seen in a few of them beside her.
I've been pondering having a Christmas giveaway contest as I have a couple of duplicate items that need a good home. If it comes to fruition I'll post the details here soon.
