YuiKaori (ゆいかおり) 2nd Single!


Last Wednesday July 21, YuiKaori (ゆいかおり) released their second double a-side single Futari/VIVIDID PARTY!.

YuiKaori is a HAPPY!STYLE unit consisting of Ishihara Kaori (石原夏織) and Ogura Yui (小倉唯) . Their first release as a duo was with the indie single 3 flavors only where they sang the third track: Koi no Overtake (恋のオーバーテイク). In May 2010 they released their first major single Our Steady Boy which was the ending theme for the anime kissxsis. The b-side was a cover of Mō Hitori no Watashi (もうひとりの私) original by the seiyuu duo Yamato Nadeshiko (Horie Yui & Tamura Yukari)


The official tracklist for the CD and the DVD is the following:


CD
1.Futari (ふたり)
2.VIVIVID PARTY!
3.Futari(off vocal ver) ( ふたり (off vocal ver) )
4.VIVIVID PARTY!(off vocal ver.)

DVD
1.VIVIVID PARTY!(MUSIC CLIP) 
2.【ゆいかおり】VIVIVID PARTY!【踊ってみて!】 (Odotte mite! -Try dancing!-)


The DVD content is already uploaded on YouTube:





As you see, both are really great dancers!! Being a fan of Yui since she joined HAPPY!STYLE back in 2007, I really love this unit. All their songs are really great and I wish they had some more publicity on TV, such as TV Lives... On the other hand, I hope they continue their activities after kissxsis ends!

THE IDOLM@STER 5th ANNIVERSARY comes with some sad news...


The 5th Anniversary Concerts started succefully this Saturday with a huge setlist consisting of 36 songs. They showed another preview of THE IDOLM@STER 2 and announced some sad news. Yurika Ochiai (now know as Hase Yurina) decided to not continue on this project. It looks like she wanted to focus more on he other works as seiyuu and not only with IM@S (which requires a lot of her time). We already know she was absent in almost all (if not all) IM@S related concerts so I understand her decision.

She apologized to everyone and hopes everyone will support new Yukiho's seiyuu: Asakura Azumi.

Some reports about Yukiho's new seiyuu, a short interview and many concert photos:

I'm really going to miss Yurika. I really like Yukiho's song "Kosmos, Cosmos" and it's going to be hard to get used, but I'm sure Asakura is going to do a great job ^^.

THE IDOLM@STER 2 to be released in SPRING 2011!!!


From right to left: Kikuchi Makoto, Takane Shijou, Ganaha Hibiki, Takatsuki Yayoi, Kisaragi Chihaya, Hoshii Miki, Amami Haruka, Hagiwara Yukiho, Futami Mami, Futami Ami, Minase Iori, Azusa, Akizuki Ritsuko.

We all were waiting for this! The official announcement of the 2nd part of THE IDOLM@STER games was made yesterday coinciding with the first show of the 5th Anniversary Concert! They gave us a 1st promotional video which can be seen on the BANDAI NAMCO GAMES' Official YouTube Channel or downloaded from 4Gamer.net ^^. Also the whole official Idolm@ster site (http://www.idolmaster.jp) is renueved with the updated idol profiles to be added (we hope) soon =D! An official Ameba blog was opened the same day too, be sure to follow it!

More info about the game is supposed to be given in the next months... but some things we already learn from the 1st PV, 4Gamer and some other sources are that idols from 961 production are now part of 765 Production! The game is setted 6 months after the first game. Naturally, the girls had aged and some of the have received big changes... Also we can see some of the idol performing a new song called "The world is all one" (you can read in here the translation and romaji lyrics thanks to Honnya =D)

『The world is all one !!』
作詞:RIONA 作曲:田代智一

空見上げ 手をつなごう
この空は輝いてる
世界中の手をとり
The world is all one !!
Unity mind.

ねえ、この世界で
ねえ、いくつの出会い
どれだけの人が 笑ってるの?
ねえ、泣くも一生
ねえ、笑うも一生
ならば笑って生きようよ 一緒に

顔を上げて みんな笑顔
力あわせて 光目指し
世界には友達
一緒に進む友達いることを忘れないで!

ひとりでは出来ないこと
仲間となら出来ること
乗り越えられるのは Unity is strength
空見上げ 手をつなごう
この空はつながってる
世界中の手をとり
The world is all one !!  The world is all one !!
Unity mind.

1st Promotional Video




Some screencaps:








So, what do you think? I'm really happy with their looks' improvments, especially hairstyles wise =) If you know me you would know I'm crazy about Makoto's new look XD. Also Iori, Ritsuko and Miki hairstyles are really nice! People is still shocked about Azusa's short hair but I think she looks fine (but I still prefer her long hair). I'm really happy to see how Ami and Mami look different and they now have different outfit's designs (also they have grown really tall!!). Another "upgrade" worth to mention (xD) is the breast bounce (and if you don't know what I'm talking about just go and watch the PV again or download the 60fps version for a better appreciation, hahaha).

I'll be posting about this game if any other PV (or any other info) cames out!

「bunny☆kaisui」blog V.3

So I decided to start these holidays with a new layout design!! A few days ago, I saw Blogger had added some new features, so I prefered to change everything a call it V.3 xD!


If you see the headers.... they're almost the same as before with some changes :P.

Now there's only one sidebar at the left and many pages as links, "about me"... I'm still working on them so if you have any advice feel free to comment (in English or Spanish ^^).

I also added some links to my mylist on NicoNicoDouga and my account on Ameba so check them!!

I'm leaving for today~~ I'm watching AKB48's Yokohama concert DISK 3 (Majisuka Special!!) ;P

Goodbye!
