You gotta love the play on words it's so cute! And all we need now is a Nacchi "Got Milk?" ad! ^-^
When this Nacchi milk carton popped up on auctions it became an instant must have unusual H!P item! I really admire it when UFA does something creative like this and it always makes collectibles so much more fun to own. "Natsumilk" comes complete with Nacchi concert dates bar code and…um..ingredient listing: bandana, can badge, and 2 photographs. The concert where this item was sold at was the Tokyo Koseinenkin Kaikan on November 5th, and the 6th back in 2005 for Nacchi's Autumn concert tour.
I was trying to make it look sort of look like the items were "spilling" out of the carton here. 😛
This Nacchi autographed card is a bit smaller than the ones I usually see show up on auctions as you can get an idea of its size when placed next to the "Natsumilk" Nacchi pin (badge). Like several other H!P members, Nacchi's autograph has gone through its own fair share of changes over the years…this is at least the fourth incarnation of her autograph style that I've seen over the years and I have 2 of her previous autograph styles on previously purchased memorabilia including a larger group signed card as well as Asayan's "Ai no tane" original event group signed post card from the original five members. Nacchi used to sign her name using English letters but I find that I usually prefer it when they sign in Japanese characters instead whether it be kanji, hiragana, or katakana. It just seems a bit more special that way I think. ^-^
Here's a closer look at the "Natsumilk" bandana which comes with this set and it's actually of a pretty good size.
One of the included UFA photos is a "logo" type which bears the name of her concert tour while the other is…
…a standard UFA photo release. Nacchi always has the best smile!!! ^-^
And what better way to accompany yourself with such a release than with Nacchi's latest concert DVD…"Special Live 2007 Autumn Acoustic Nacchi." With 115 minutes of intimate performances what's not to love here!…and a great set list along with live band…YES!…something that UFA should embrace more of and I know I keep saying this but what a live band brings to any stage performance is immeasurable in my opinion. Improvisation and interaction are just a small part of the possibilities that this adds to any live show and Nacchi's "Acoustic" live is no exception.
Just one little clip here to share tonight and I've chosen one of my favorite Nacchi songs…."Iki wo kasanemashou." The all acoustic musician setting really adds a special dimension to the entire concert and each and every song gets an "acoustic" makeover of sorts with one of the most dramatically different arrangements being for "Koi no hana"….it simply just sounds so amazingly different here and with a violin and mandolin making an appearance in this new arrangement I think you'll be really impressed with it! For this performance of "Koi no hana" as well as many other great improvisations check out the rest of Nacchi's acoustic live which can be purchased here. And now…"Iki wo kasanemashou"…
