    not a clue what that surprise could be but I'm curious to see what it is
    the songs are good so far and the K-ON one's do surprise me, I did not expect that I would like them that much. "Pani Poni Dash" and "Pre-Parade" are great too, that's the first time I'm not so sure which songs I should give my vote but oh my... let's wait for the surprise

    Re: J-Music Hangout



    In all seriousness, I'm liking the idea of OJS48. What better way to spend your retired life making music and having a great time?

    Haha! Then perhaps you will like the idea of this as well

    Quote Quote:

    Were you shocked when we reported about “OJS48“? Well, there is another group that may surprise you. The “idol” group is called “SAMURAI ROSE“, which consists of ladies in and around their 40s. Surprisingly, the youngest member of the group is 34 years old, and the oldest one is 58 years old! (the oldest one is not really “around 40″, but she passed the audition because she is still “around 40″, mentally.) In addition, the members are regular ladies with various occupations, such as the president of companies, nurses, chefs, etc.

    SAMURAI ROSE used to be a 5 single mothers group, but after they debuted in February, they were avalanched with many applicants who also wanted to join the group. Therefore, they held auditions, and will now become a big group with 40 members.

    They will debut as major group on October 6th, with their debut single “Rouge to Martini“, and before their debut, an event to celebrate their major debut was held on October 2nd. They performed their debut single as well as PRINCESS PRINCESS’s masterpiece, “M”, which will be included in the single as a follow up song, in front of 220 fans.

    By the way, they are not produced by Akimoto Yasushi who created OJS48.

    Again, NGL, it amused me to no end I just had to share ^^

    Re: J-Music Hangout

    They're not of retirement age, but it's still awesome that they're enjoying what they want to do. I would rather have more "alternative" groups such as these than the ordinary, young idol groups.

    Re: J-Music Hangout

    This is what's so good with asians. They all look like they're in their 40s so if they're around the 40s mentally, why not? (jk)

    In all seriousness though it seems fricking awesome. Not my cup of tea... But awesome!
    You're not paid to think;
    A mindless worker is a happy worker,
    so shut up and do your job.

    Re: J-Music Hangout

    @Blai: Why, thank you. <3 *is a Nikkei-jin*
    Old news is old but thought I would like to share. :3

    Quote Quote:
    Ayumi Hamasaki's latest maxi single "L" seized the number-one spot on the Oricon weekly chart, becoming her 25th consecutive number-one single since "Free & Easy" in 2002.

    Hamasaki now holds the record for the most #1 singles by a female artist, in both the solo and group categories.

    Last week, Hamasaki tied with singer Matsuda Seiko, who reigned over the Oricon chart with 24 singles in a row from 1980 to 1988, with the single "Crossroad". With "L"'s success, however, she was able to take the title from Matsuda, who held the record for 22 years.

    Ayu commented, "I'm surprised and honored at the same time. It's all thanks to the fans who have supported each and every single that I kept putting my heart in."

    SOURCE
    I used to (and still am) a huge fan of Ayu so I'm really glad her hardwork has paid off. Even through tough times like her partial deafness, she never gave up. I'm so proud of her!

    Re: J-Hip Hop

    Can't go wrong with Back-On and Forces of Nature. I think that Chain and New World is probably the best fusion of J-hip-hop and rock anywhere. Hiji Suru Style by Forces of Nature (and Nujabes) will raise the roof off of any house. It also makes great battle music for a fanfic.

    Re: Visual Kei

    I don't really listen to much VK but I got into SID after hearing their songs for FMA:Brotherhood anime Apart from them I only listen to a smattering of songs from various VK bands but the only one I actually follow is SID I guess.

    Like Kashu_Desu said, there is a lot of diversity in VK. As I already said, I don't listen to VK much because I find a lot of it isn't quite my style, but there are definitely a large number of gems in the genre. Because of the diversity, there's bound to be something for everyone, I guess you could say

    Arashi’s latest single “Hatenai Sora” sold 248,828 copies on the release day
    by Shiso on November 10, 2010 at 3:52 pm
    ---------------------------------

    Arashi has just released their 6th single of 2010, “Hatenai Sora” on November 10th, and not surprisingly it topped the Oricon daily chart.
    Oricon reports that they sold 248,828 copies on it’s debut day, and it exceeded the first day sales of “Troublemaker” which sold around 233,000 copies. Therefore, “Hatenai Sora” has the best first day sales amongst all 6 singles released by Arashi in 2010.
    Below is the Top 5 ranking of Oricon single daily chart.
    1. Hatenai Sora – Arashi 11/10 (248,828)
    2. Nee – Perfume 11/10 (44,293)
    3. Best Friend’s Girl – J Soul Brothers 11/10 (23,627)
    4. Hito – Yusuke 11/10 (no sales number available)

    RIAJ gives AKB48’s “Beginner” a “Million” certification
    by Shiso on November 10, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    --------------------
    The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) has announced that AKB48’s 18th single “Beginner“, which was released on October 27th, has earned the certification of “Million” on November 10th.

    This is the first time that any AKB48 song has ever reached the “Million” mark, and it has been three years and two months since any single CD has been certified as “Million” by the RIAJ. The last to accomplish this feat was “Sen no Kaze ni Natte” (released in August 2007) by Akikawa Masafumi.

    As we reported earlier, “Beginner” sold 827,000 copies in the first week, and it’s the best record among all female group for the sales in the first week of release.

    For 2010, only Arashi’s album, “Boku no Miteiru Fukei“, and AKB48’s single, “Beginner”, are certified as “Million” for now.

    Do as Infinity announces 8th album, “EIGHT”
    by Novaforever on November 10, 2010 at 9:11 am

    ----------------------

    Pop duo Do as Infinity will be releasing a brand new album for their 11th anniversary, titled, “EIGHT.”

    The album is the 8th full studio album from the duo and will come out on January 19th of next year. Do as Infinity already has veteran producer Seiji Kameda (Tokyo Jihen) on board for the release. It will feature ballads similar to their hits “Hi no Ataru Sakamichi” and “Hiiragi“, but will also cover a much wider variety of genres. The tracks will vary from powerful upper songs to funk numbers.

    Also included will be “Everything will be all right“, which was used as the 2010 BOAT RACE TV CM song, “Kimi ga inai Mirai” from the television anime Inuyasha, and their “Do! Creative!!” project theme.

    However, the most noteworthy aspect of the album may be that this is the first time that members Van and Ryo will be doing the songwriting on their own. It will certainly be an interesting evolution of sound for the group, and it should stand out from all their previous releases.

    The album will be released with a CD + DVD version that will contain the music video for “1/100” and three other music clips, along with documentary footage.

    TOKIO & Arashi to hijack the TV for New Year’s Day
    by Shiso
    ---------------------------------

    It’s been reported that two variety shows featuring JE groups will be broadcasted in a “relay style” for New Year’s Day. Running for five and a half hours, the two shows have been identified as “THE Ultraman DASH Kiseki no 3-pun kan wo Mokugeki seyo” and “Arashi ni Shiyagare New Year’s Day 2.5 hours special“.

    For the first, it will be hosted by the members of TOKIO, who will introduce experts on difficult subjects or interests; the group members report on the experts completing unique tasks, such as getting fully-dressed while sky diving, or breaking an egg while bungee jumping. TOKIO’s special will air at 6:00 p.m to 8:54 p.m on January 1st.

    Right after TOKIO’s show ends, Arashi’s “Arashi ni Shiyagare New year’s day 2.5 hours special” will air. The show is a special edition of their variety show “Arashi ni Shiyagare“. On this program, the group will welcome two sets of secret guests to the show – interestingly enough, the Arashi member will not be informed of who these special guests will be. “Arashi ni Shiyagare New Year’s Day 2.5 hour special” will air from 9:00 PM to 11:24 PM.

    Although their concepts are completely different, in the beginning of each show, there will be a talk portion in which both TOKIO and Arashi members come out together.

    the GazettE releases PV for “PLEDGE”
    by GhostWriter

    ________________________________________________

    Visual kei group the GazettE is scheduled to release their new single, “Pledge,” on December 15th and the PV for this upcoming single was released earlier today.

    This is the third single of the year for the group, but it definitely stands apart from their other releases. “Pledge” will be the first ballad style single from the band since “Guren” back at the beginning of 2008. The song will set the mood for the winter season, and is being described as a new classic for the group.

    “Pledge” will hit stores right before the GazettE is scheduled to perform at their Tokyo Dome Christmas concert on December 26th.

    Re: J-Hip Hop

    I'm surprised, and sad, that noone has mentioned Nobodyknows+ which was the first Japanese Hip-Hop band I heard and Hero's Come Back the first Japanese song I learned by heart (along with Nagareboshi Shooting Star by Home Made Kazuko. Other songs by them I like are "Whats going on" and "Winds of Wind".

    You're not paid to think;
    A mindless worker is a happy worker,
    so shut up and do your job.

    Re: J-Music Hangout

    I just came across this song and for two minutes I wondered "what the F did I just stumble across" and exited the window... Thirty seconds later I listened again.

    It's stuck in my head and incredibly catchy... But oh so not my cup of tea, why can't I stop listen to it?

    Oh, Perfume. Their techno sound kinda invades your brain and makes you listen even when you don't want to, and then stays there like a virus ><
