    New Material for Ice Creamusume? 

    Ice Creamusume debut

    It’s been almost eight months since Ice Creamusume released their debut mini-album in Taiwan and Japan, and the girls released it in Mainland China at the beginning of this month. I’m certainly eager for some more material from them either in Mandarin or Japanese!

    One of the girls have mentioned on their blogs that they are in recording for something right now and the blog will undergo a revamp later this month – possibly to promote their next release. If they follow the patterns of most other artists in Taiwan it’s like to be another mini-album or EP, perhaps even a full length album. Singles are somewhat more rare in a Taiwanese context.

    The girls will be performing at most of the remaining summer Hello! Project concerts so maybe we’ll even get a preview, might be a bit early though!

      Just a question. Why did Itano Tomomi get a solo song?

      And lol, it’s such a boring Para Para dance.

      Itano’s song is the first track on an anime remix compilation album so I guess they chose to give her a PV, since AKB48 are doing well right now she’s sort of the headline act on the album.

      The dance is just plain para para (PPP) but Itano is one of the cutest girls AKB has!

      i agree Itano is one of the cutets AKB has. hey maybe if they work out some managment issues Erika can join her friend in AKB48 lol. what i thought was wierd was that she wasn’t lip syncing to the song durring her dance, it make it look creepy

      oh and YAY for Ice cream….. i really liked them so i want to see more of them for sure. and a new mini album sounds great so i wouldn’t mind. maybe more original stuff this time tho

      please forgive the double post

      agreed, I’d love to hear more original work from them. I loved 戀愛登場 and 在沒有雨水滋潤的星球上是無法付出愛的吧? (I consider this their song over Morning Musume’s since ICMs album was released first)

      even if it’s a mini-album, I eagerly wait for it!

    Ice Creamusume Scale the Charts! 

    Ice Creamusume’s debut mini-album is slowly climbing the G-Music charts (Taiwan’s equivalent of Oricon) ranking at #11 in it’s second week of sales – a seven position increase from it’s debut week at #18 in the Mandarin Charts!

    In the combo charts (not restricted to Mandarin music) the girls have went from #20 up to #11 – a huge increase and excellent for the second week!

    Let’s hope Ice Creamusume continues to find success!

      That’s great, they are really likable and I hope they will continue having fun songs and fun personalities. (:

      Really don’t like them.
      Hope they won’t x_x.

      Why do you hope they won’t? If you’re not a fan, just don’t watch them.

    • 亜田夢 4:37 pm on 2009-01-28 Permalink | Reply

      G-Music doesn’t report the number of sales, only sales percentage.

    • CB 8:59 pm on 2009-02-02 Permalink | Reply

      I wonder if they will have a “Hello Morning” or “Yorosen” show in Mandarin?

    News Roundup 

    Recent Releases


    • Ice Creamusume 1st Zui Bang! (Debut Mini-Album) (Taiwan Release)
    • MilkyWay / SHIPSKirarin Revolution 3rd Tour Stage 3 (Anime DVD)

    Ice Creamusme released their debut album, 1st Zui Bang! in Taiwan yesterday and after an initial listen I must say I really like it! Strictly speaking there is only one new track, their debut song for which their is a PV. There are three Morning Musume covers and the Ame no Furenai… song that was originally performed in concert and mostly in Japanese. There voices aren’t amazing but far from awful, quite endearing really.

    Tomorrow (2009-01-11) Canary Club member Sugiura Riho (Rippon) will graduate from the group and TNX to focus on her studies apparently, this has been known for a few months and as I’m not too familiar with the group I’m not sure what effect her graduation will have. Best of luck to her anyway!

    On the right you will notice the PVs for Kusumi Koharu’s Hapi Hapi Sunday and Buono!’s co.no.mi.chi have been released. Koharu’s single isn’t as bad as Papancake and I really like Buono!’s new single, the PV is pretty nice too.

    New Ice Creamusume Artist Profile [Update: New Info] 

    New Hello! Project group Ice Creamusume are now listed on the official Japanese website though not under Wonderful Hearts as I had hoped but rather under ハロプロ台湾, Hello Pro Taiwan. I suppose that makes sense and I wonder if we’re going to see more groups from Taiwan? I’d say so.

    [Update:] The Japanese version of Ice Creamusume’s debut mini-album will be sold at the Elder Club concert on 2009-01-31. Also the Japanese PV for the album’s featured track has been released and is viewable on the right as always.

    You can see the group shot and profile pictures below though they’re the same as everywhere else we’ve seen;

    Shenshen, Anchii, Peipei, Youko, Reirei, Guuchan.

      i like their songs so far, but i have a bad feeling they arent going to pan out well

    • happyproject 10:08 pm on 2009-01-08 Permalink | Reply

      :O I hope it’s 2009~ Not 2008 when he Elder Club is, haha. I’ve done that too >< Silly new year.

      I’m still excited though~ But I wish they were under wonderful hearts too. It would be fitting. And it makes me wonder if they aren’t going to release much in Japan.

    • 亜田夢 10:14 am on 2009-01-09 Permalink | Reply

      D’oh, changed the date on that. This is going to continue happening until at least March…!

    Liang Ai Ge Ming 21 Preview 

    From StardustA radio preview of Ice Creamusume’s Liang Ai Ge Ming 21 (恋爱革命21) has been released on Taiwanese radio! The song is from their upcoming debut mini-album and it’s a cover of the Morning Musume classic, Renai Revolution 21. I expected a new arrangement and was a little disappointed by the lack of one but then I suppose there’s nothing wrong with the original and DANCE*MAN did compose it.

    I find it a little odd that they still say chou chou chou ii kanji but I think the song is lovely in Mandarin – such a beautiful language! I think their voices are somewhat…weak? I’m not sure if that’s the right word but they’re certainly not very strong – I’m sort of half hoping that the album is a complete cover album, I’d love to hear some other perhaps more recent songs covered in Mandarin. This is a double edged sword though, while it would be cool and perhaps sell decently in Taiwan it would most likely bomb in Japan.

    Anyway, head over to Stardust to listen / download!

      Wow, their English is amazing =P Their voices are pretty weak, but I guess they just need a little time.

    Ice Creamusume Debut Mini-Album Release Date & Title 

    Ice Creamusume’s debut mini-album which has been oddly titled 1st Best is due to be released in Taiwan on 2008-01-09 with a Japanese release to follow within the same month. The first song revealed from the mini-album is 戀愛革命21 (Love Revolution 21) – a cover of Morning Musume’s hit Renai Revolution 21. It’s been suggested by many fans that it’s likely the album will be comprised of covers of well known Hello! Project songs, this is however far from confirmed. It’ll be exciting to hear some familiar songs given a new twist and in Chinese though!

    Picture above is Ice Creamusume member Youko.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought the title of their mini-album was called 1st Best – it makes it sound like a Best-of Album which would be strange since they’re a new group o.O

    • Nayoko 9:10 am on 2008-12-27 Permalink | Reply

      An original song has already been announced, and the PV is slated to show up around Dec. 31st – Jan. 2nd. (Or some time close to that.) And will -possibley- have both Chinese and Japanese versions. It’s also been said by the “Shoppe Manager” in his/her 8th Blog Entry that there will be 2 songs in Japanese on their mini-album.

    • nekocafe 9:25 am on 2008-12-27 Permalink | Reply

      release on Jan 9th ….2008?….LOL…
      Anyways…I know who they are…i just wanna listen if they can have the same feeling as MM singing RR21 ^^
