God damned September.

Hey, guys. Sorry about that little absence there. I started school this past week and the last few weeks have been filled with shopping and whatnot. And we even had a massive hurricane on the east coast, so blogging at that time wasn’t my top priority. Either way, I missed blogging on quite a few things. So here I go~

In a huge announcement and shocker, Saki Ogawa graduated on August 27th. You don’t understand how hurt I felt. I loved Saki sooo much. She had to have been the best member in S/mileage(yes, even surpassing my beloved Dawa). She definitely had the best singing voice and her personality was just so sweet. I’ll really, really, really miss her and probably won’t love S/mileage the same ever again.

Supposedly, the reason she left was because she wanted to continue life as a normal student. Which makes me wonder, was she the reason they started the auditions? Or did she say that after the announcement of auditions? Saki also said that she was very hesitant being a member. You’ve been a member for 2 years and it took you that long to figure that out? Maybe all of the work of being a full group has gotten her stressed. Either way, S/mileage will never be the same without her or with all of those members. I hope you still continue to do your best, Sakichi. Much love, from Kio~<3

On another S/mileage note, it looks like the Linlin look-alike Fuyuka Kosuga is out of S/mileage. She was diagnosed with severe anemia and can no longer participate in S/mileage activities and will move on to be an Egg. Now anemia isn’t something you play with, especially severe anemia. I’d know because I suffer from bouts of it(if that’s possible xD). People were complaining, “Ohh, why would they kick her out?? That’s so unfair!” Listen, if you were dancing on stage, trying as hard as you can to even stand up, feeling like your heart is gonna pop out of your chest, you wouldn’t want to do it yourself. They did it for her health, not because they wanted to. It’s definitely not a diagnosis you play with. It’s serious.

Above is a radio rip of S/mileage’s upcoming single entitled Tachiagaaru. It’s set to release on September 28th, 2011 and will have about 90 versions(at least that’s what it feels like). Kosuga will be participating in this single(first and only). I’ll post the promos in a later post. Tracklistings and covers below.

Above is the full PV to Kono Chikyuu blahblahsmackabitchblah and the audio rip of Kare to Isshou ni Omise ga Shitai; set to release September 14, 2011. I do have to say it’s one of Morning Musume’s best singles in a long time. And definitely the only one I find decent since the 9th gen joined. Kono Chikyuu is disco-esque, fun, and dancey. Kare to Isshou is awesomely happy and sweet. I find both songs very addicting. Covers and tracklisting below:





1. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!

2. Kare to Isshou ni Omise ga Shitai

3. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo! (Instrumental)

4. Kare to Isshou ni Omise ga Shitai (Instrumental)

[Limited A, B, & C have DVDs]

1. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!

2. Jishin Motte Yume Motte Tobitatsu Kara (Ai solo)

3. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo! (Instrumental)

Note: Those covers are a hot mess. The only one that I like is Limited B.

The girls will be releasing their 12th album, entitled 12, Smart, on October 12th. I can’t find a full tracklisting.

Buono!’s 13th single has been announced as DEEP MIND. It’s going to be the theme song for the movie Gomennasai. No release date announced yet.

That’s all for this post, guys! On another note, I send my prayers and condolences for those who lost their loved ones in the 9/11 terrorists attack. Keep all of them in your minds and hearts. They’re all looking down on you. Much love, from Kio~<3
