Compilation of E-girls “Diamond Only” performances

25 Mar

E-girls have succeeded in catching my attention the minute they announced a collaboration with Samantha Vega. I don’t own a Samantha Vega to be honest, but i’ve been wanting one for some time …so to see these girls carrying one and dancing with it makes me really envious. I wonder if they got a free bag each ????

Anyway, the girls deserve credit for bringing out the youthfulness of the bag via their performance. If AKB48 appeals to guys, then E-girls is the opposite. I can totally see why they’d be picked as endorsement models since they look so fashionable and confident. Their music doesn’t appeal to the masses at times but i guess “Diamond Only” is one of their better ones already.

E-girls team up with Samantha Vega in new single “Diamond Only”

10 Feb

E-girls is certainly climbing up the ranks as one of Japan’s representative girl groups as their new single is now the CM song for Samantha Vega‘s “Honey Bunch -Disney New Collection-“.

In their MV, the girls carry a girl’s favorite item – her bag, and set out in search for a place where they can shine.

The song “Diamond Only” will be released on Feb 26. Meanwhile, check out their MV below!

I seldom take notice of E-girls but this tie-up with Samantha Vega really caught my attention. First of all, Samantha Vega only uses fashionable stars to endorse them…like Miranda Kerr. Getting this collaboration deal is a big thing for E-girls certainly….but i also see why they’d be the perfect muses for Samantha Vega, what with their youthful and confident appeal. How i wish i could get my hands on one of these tote-bags!

Itano Tomomi, Shimazaki Haruka show off their sisterly bond

29 Jun

AKB48’s Itano Tomomi and Shimazaki Haruka attended an event for Samantha Thavasa group’s fashion talk show, held at the Tokyo Sky Tree on 28th June 2013. Itano was there as the model for Samantha Vega, while Paruru was there as the model for Will Selection.

The two who are close in private started off by talking about Itano’s latest CM for Samantha Vega, which was filmed in New York. When Paruru was asked about Itano’s CM, she said “I watched it on TV at home. As my family are all fans of her, we were in awe.”

Itano also talked about the first time when she met Paruru. “I thought she looked cute. I’m not someone who starts a conversation, but later she sat next to me on a music show, so i talked to her again, and the conversation was interesting so i warmed up to her. Later, i got a dog who looks like her so there’s a sort of familiarity when i see her.” Upon hearing this, Paruru responded “So we’re not sisters, i’m like her pet.”

When asked if they borrow clothes from each other, Itano said Paruru would never borrow since their tastes are different. “When i give her advice during our shopping trips, she’ll say ‘I’ll think about it..’ and end it there,” said Itano. Paruru explained “That’s because her sense is so good that i can’t keep up.”

They also recalled an episode when they went out together while filming the 32nd single music video in Fukuoka. Even though there was only a break of 45 mins, they risked an oncoming storm and went out to a park to play.

At the end of the event, Itano said “I don’t go out to eat with other juniors, only Paruru seems to click with me.” For Paruru, she was happy to have Tomochin who takes care of her like an elder sister and brings her out to eat.

Moving on to Itano’s upcoming graduation, Paruru said she’s already feeling lonely. Tomochin promised to look after her even after her graduation but she’s worried if Paruru will be OK alone, to which Paruru replied “I’m worried!”

I’m glad she’s coming back with a dance song! Dear J really defined her so she should continue with that style. Her 2nd/3rd singles were practically career suicidal!
