Just a quick post before I go out tonight! With Ongaku Gatas' recent fan club event which was held here in Hawaii on the island of Oahu a couple of weeks ago there was of course lots of merchandise available!! The only problem was that they decided to not open the temporary merchandise store to the general public (non fan club members) this time which is really sad I think. In the past they would allow the general public to shop in the store on the very last day of the event and while most of the time the featured artist/group's merchandise was for the most part sold out fans could still find lots of merchandise from the other members and groups as the store would offer a full array of merchandise from most of the H!P family of artists. So when I got an e-mail from my friend Saburo saying that he knows a friend whom is working for UFA here in Hawaii I was so excited to gain access to the fan club merchandise and I quickly browsed the list and asked for what turned out to be $140 worth of merchandise!! It sure adds up quickly as any H!P knows very well! :O It was so kind of his friend to offer and I'm so thankful for her great gesture!
Okay since I don't have time right now to present all of the goods that I received from OG's fan club event I've just decided to post the Berryz Koubou photo set. What's unique and great about the UFA photos which are specifically produced for Hawaii is that they're 4" X 6" instead of the standard 3 1/2" X 5" sized photos which are sold in Japan. And I also find it amusing that the photos still bear the title of "Hello! Project Information Village" at the very bottom as the much missed official Hawaii store which once was located in Waikiki at our Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center has now been closed for quite a few years. Okay I'll be posting the rest of the Hawaii fan club merchandise that Saburo helped get for me in a future post very soon but for now here's BK's adorable set! Also take note of the backdrop being used as it's specifically a Hawaiian print! ^-^ And just think…one day Berryz Koubou may actually come here for an "Alo-Hello!" event!! Maybe with some "inside" information this time I'll be able to see them in person here in Hawaii…haha but I'm getting way ahead of things here! 😛
Haha and forgetful me left out the "Dschinghis Khan" pvs from a couple of posts ago. 😛 I know that everyone's probably already watched these a zillion times already but I was really intending to include them anyway in my "Dschinghis Khan Single V" post from last night…so anyway if anyone needs another helping of BK here they are.
