Hello! Project has been spitting out releases like clockwork. An amazing summer should lead to a promising autumn, right? It might be a little too early to determine, but you can decide. Here’s a look at the upcoming H!P releases.
Morning Musume’s 51st single, Wakuteka Take a chance, is set to release on October 10th. It will release in a whopping 7 editions, similar to the last single. Also relating in similarity, each edition will include a B-side sung by a select group of girls–which is a nice change, Tsunku. Tracklisting and covers are below.
01. Wakuteka Take a chance
02. Love Innovation
03. Wakuteka Take a chance (Instrumental)
02. Futsuu no Shoujo A [Reina Tanaka, Masaki Satou, & Haruka Kudou]
02. Daisuki 110man-ten [Mizuki Fukumura & Ayumi Ishida]
02. Shinnen Dake wa Tsuranukitoose! [Sayumi Michishige, Haruna Iikubo, Erina Ikuta, Riho Sayashi, Kanon Suzuki]
My disgust for these covers cannot be described in just one note. No, no, no. These covers are as bad, if not, worse than the outfits themselves. I just… WHAT ARE YOU DOING? What have I said before?? When in doubt, go with black! Why in the hell would you use fluorescent ass yellow with neon & black costumes? I just don’t get it. How do the graphic designers even get away with this shit? Why the fuck do they even get paid!? I need to hurry up and get my degree so I can start working for these motherfuckers and actually do a good job.
S/mileage’s 12th single has been announced for November 28th, 2012. It will be titled Samui ne, which translates to It’s Cold, Isn’t It? I really hate themed singles, so I hope it’s not some dumb holiday mess. No other information on it yet.
NEXT MY SELF is the title to Erina Mano’s upcoming and last single. It is set to release on December 12th. People have been theorizing that the title shows some symbolic meaning–and I can’t help but agree. The past 6 years, she’s been under Tsunku’s wing,–releasing music handed to her, doing dances someone else chooses, wearing clothes that she might or might not like, going with PV ideas that seem and look generic or underdone–but she’s an adult now. Now it’s time to break out of that idol stage(if she plans to) and do things that she wants to do, not what someone else tells her to. Next, comes herself.
Already, a new Berryz Koubou single has been announced! WANT! is the title and it is set to release on December 19th. No cheesy holiday theme please! Keep it sexy, girls~ No other information released on it.
