Hello!Project News Roundup
Seems like the release dates just keep on coming don’t they? Can anyone else hear their bank accounts wailing in agony yet?
Saki Shimizu of Berryz Koubou revealed on her blog today that she’ll be getting her first PB and Solo DVD in January. I know a lot of Berryz Koubou fans have been asking for a photobook of Captain for a long time and their finally getting their wish granted! I’ve never purchased a photobook myself because of the price but I definitely won’t complain about the great shots contained within these books!
Recent nominees for Best New Artist, S/mileage will be releasing their fourth — currently untitled — single on February 9th, 2011! I’ve quite enjoyed S/mileages releases and have enjoyed the fact that at least one group in Hello!Project has been getting some decent promotion. Now take a hint UFA and promote all of the groups in H!P equally. I can’t wait for their upcoming first album. The upcoming single will be released in five different versions.
Erina Mano will also be release her 9th single (also currently untitled) on January 26th, 2011. I hope that this new single will continue down the path of her recent single Genkimono de Ikou! as I believe that a rock/pop sound would be the perfect sound for her. I heard great improvement in her voice in this single so I’m excited to see how much she’s progressed since this last single was released.
