Um….more from Conan later…..but first…
..I received a most *endearing* e-mail earlier this morning from a most dear friend in the UK….which has got me through today in a most happy and euphoric mood…please forgive my strangeness which may show tonight while I type this~ (。ーωー。) ♪♪~
I'm currently watching an older anime series "Comic Party" that a friend sent me awhile back so I promise to try not babble for too long! (￣Ｏ￣*)!
UTB continues to return to grand form and by that I do mean in my most biased of senses….as H!P is really being featured much more as they used to once absolutely fill this publication with member/group features from cover to cover. =) The highlight first and foremost being the latest issue's *covergirl* Maimichan! ＼(^o^)／☆ Also it's notable to say that if you're a fan of AKB48 you'd surely find this idol magazine a worthy read as they're regularly featured in every issue…a trend which has lasted for at least the last few months till now and it doesn't appear to be fading away anytime soon either~! Hmm….I'm a bit puzzled by the appearance of SKE48….dare desuka? (・c_・;)？A mini unit? Shuffle group? Has Tsunku gotten to them too? (^o^)!!
Even the new spine of UTB says it all……awesome quality & long gravure! Σ(￣◇￣*)！Or should I say longer gravure as the main idol features have certainly grown in length….add in glossy covers, flat style spine, 110 pages+, beautiful photography, informative articles, idol games, idol news and Yes~! lots of H!P! =)
While the beloved DVD extra is no longer included the return or those cute trading cards has commenced and in each issue you'll receive a total of five cards….randomly inserted from three possible sets (scanned above). UTB does a great job at separating all that a fan may love with the idol's being featured as for example if there are three H!P members, each set will then include one of their cards each so no matter which set you end up receiving you're assured to find a most *adored* member waiting there for you in that little pouch midway through each issue~. My issue included set A w/ Maimichan! ＾ ＾
C-ute's Yajima Maimi headlines the issue with the very first idol feature and as has been with the past few issues her photos aren't off shots from her recent shashinshuu but rather 100% original~. As always *seifuku*= ~♥~
You see awhile back I asked Mr. O'Brien for some most needed help in finding out just what will occur in the coming years as the Hello! Project Eggs grown and mature and he was so eager and *kind* back then to lend a hand…his mind..and a very special crystal ball which sees into the future ala: "…In the year 2000" fame~!
We learned many valuable truths including likd how…in the year 2012….Tsunku will become Berryz Koubou's 8th member while stealing the member color pink from a stunned Momo and also of the creation of Tsunku's most grand shuffle group ever who'll bear the name "Asudawamanairosekitty!!" And the clocks really ticking Conan so we better see some of these come true soon ne~……."love triangles?!!"…."mistaken identity cosplay?!….now I know you're most intrigued ne and just in case you missed it earlier you can read on for more of Mr. O'Brien's predictions here~. XD
Me: So have you had any new visions of Hello! Project recently Conan?
Conan: Andy stop playing with your chicken!…sheesh where's Max when you really need him?!! E Street Band? Tour? I didn't know they were still around! (ducks! XD)….
Me: Ano ne~….
Conan: I think the movers lost our future seeing turbans when we moved! And no crystal ball either?!! Oh I did have one vision come to me while I was shaving this morning wearing only boxer briefs~….
Conan:…….(Cues the darkness and hand held flashlights…) In the year 2010 the one named little Maimai will shoot her very first photo book. I once received a lomi~lomi and ate Mahi~mahi while on vacation in Hawaii~…but what the heck is a Mai~mai?! Can you eat it…..I hope so as it sounds absolutely delicious!~ =D
Seems that Conan was just looking through the lates issue of UTB……we really need to find those turbans and quick! =)……………without them he's just making stuff up!………
……As most readers of UTB know that a photo feature appearance in these pages in most most cases means that a shashinshuu is in the works…on the way……being thought up……or at least is an inkling in Tsunku's never resting mind~. And here's Maimai in UTB…….I wonder if Conan could be right ne~? (・c_・;)？
Well….at the very least we do get a peak inside of the goings on in Miya's most adorable room! o(*´∀｀)o゛♥ The diagram Miya drew of her bedroom is most awesome!!! *Cute* & cozy! ＾ ＾
My scanner seems to be having a *moment*….why is that image so crooked?!! O_o?! It's Maimichan's new pb event with fans~! =)
And how does Maimi manage to ward off evil?…..should one pack just a cross or silver bullets & holy water as well?
For those answers to such burning questions and more you'll just have to subscribe~!..(*´艸`)
Hirano Aya also gets a two page article featuring here new shashinshuu release titled "Girlfriend" which was just given away here this past Saturday~. ＾ ＾ Here there's a most adorable photo of Ayachan holding said most *cute* photo book at her shashinshuu release event! =) ↓↓↓
And last but definitely not least!!! is Airiin with some most *adorable* off shots from her latest shashinshuu release "Aoiro" which will be given away this Saturday night….with live coverage of the race being televised! =)
