25 Nov

【実況・感想】ベストアーティスト2015

The biggest news of the night: Taguchi Junnosuke announces departure from KAT-TUN and Johnny’s Jimusho. Taguchi says he’s turning 30 soon and this decision was made for the sake of his future.


Taguchi’s announcement

I am just sad that this once-upon-million-selling-group is disintegrating in this manner. 


 

On to the performances…

Johnny’s Family


Hey!Say!JUMP – Kimi Attraction

Arashi – Sakura/Aozora no Shita, Kimi no tonari/ Ai wo Sakebe
Matsumoto is so dorky in this performance and as usual “Ai wo Sakebe” is a godly performance!


Kinki Kids – Yume wo mireba Kizutsuku koto mo aru

V6 – Wait for you/ 20th anniversary medley

Johnny’s Love Songs Medley Part 1
Kinki Kids 
– Ai no Katamari
Kanjani8 – Tsuyoku Tsuyoku Tsuyoku
Johnny’s WEST – All my love

Arashi – Love so sweet


Johnny’s Love Songs Medley Part 2
TOKIO – Love you only

48/46 Group


AKB48 – 365nichi no Kami Hikouki / Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby
I prefer the Asa ga Kita song over Kuchibiru. Kuchibiru has a good tune, really colorful like what you’d find in a carnival but the lyrics are simpler than simple, and cutesy just doesn’t work for most members now. Quite honestly, i’m cringing whenever Takamina does the winks and pouts.

HKT48 – Shekarashika
NMB48 – Durian Shonen
SKE48 – Mae no Meri
AKB48 – Heavy Rotation


Nogizaka46 – Ima, Hanashitai dare ka ga iru

[Updated]Performances from Music Station Ultra Fes 2015

24 Sep

Update: Most 48 videos gone but i’ve found alternative sources. Check them out quickly if you haven’t..

This is a special episode to celebrate Music Station’s 30th anniversary. Show was 10hours long and featured many major acts including X Japan, Ayumi Hamasaki, EXILE, 48Group, Johnny’s Family etc.


48/46 Group

Nogizaka46 – Nandome no Aozora ka
Ikuta Erika wows with her piano solo and opera voice. What a talent wasted as an idol!

HKT48 – Melon Juice
SKE48 – Pareo wa Emerald
NMB48 – Nagiichi

AKB48 – Ponytail to Shushu/ Everyday, Kachuusha / Koisuru Fortune Cookie (Kimutaku center)
The biggest winner from this performance is SMAP’s Kimutaku, who was forced into the KFC performance by Sashihara. Despite the annoyance on his face, he performed the full choreography perfectly, impressing netizens with his professionalism.In the end Kimutaku said “Music Station does things like this?”

Other members who attracted most attention tonight…

Many comments from GirlsChannel on Mayuyu’s growing beauty and how she’s shaken off the idol look.


Within 48 fandom, many gushed over cute Paruru’s healthy return to senbatsu. I have to say Paruru’s signature twintails are really cute! Many are calling Payuyu the strongest combi in AKB48.


Johnny’s Family

Johnny’s performances are quite fun this time around as we have live video footage of Arashi from their Miyagi concert, and medleys where the idols are grouped according to their generation. It is quite interesting to see for example, Nishikido Ryo standing next to NEWS, and KAT-TUN performing Real Face with just 4 members. *Heart pinch*
