After School-Shampoo MV Release

So, I really really love this song. That intro is freaking awesome. But the lyrics and MV, hmm.

I like that they're using shampoo as metaphor for themselves or whatever. Like they want to be the fragrance that always envelopes their lover and if their lover hurts them they want to be the shampoo that stings their eyes. (dont quote me on this, these are the lyrics I read on a video) It's something different and I like it.

I think my biggest beef with this is the fact that when Raina enters the dance studio, I seriously thought she was like a ten year old kid. So the fact that she's crushing on this guy and he likes her too made me think WOAH. But then I saw she was supposed to be the same age as the rest of them. LOL The video is sad of course, and the usual "I'll leave without telling you because it'll hurt less." I like how even in the video Kahi and Jung Ah are the mom and dad of the group. They welcome Raina into the group even though everyone else is sorta like herp derp who is she?

Overall though, good song, good concept, good MV. I'm looking forward to the live performances. :3


I can safely say that I died ten times while watching this. It went beyond my expectations! The close up shots are great, the slow motion parts are AMAZING. It's just a shame that this video is low quality for now. The PV won't be on the Mr. Taxi single but it will be on their 1st Japanese album, so we can definitely look forward to it.

Also, I have to say this because I'm a TaeNy shipper, but I think the director was totally biased towards them and I don't mind at all. They both do that whole "removing sunglasses sexily" thing and I spazzed really hard over it. XD They're in the center during the "Don't wanna say goodbye" part and Taeyeon looks so freaking happy. ♥♥

Seriously, even if this video isn't on the single you should still buy it. I'm so proud of the girls. ♥

Here's the dance version of Run Devil Run if you haven't seen it yet!

AKB48 "Everyday, Kachuusha" PV

So finally the PV is out and It's really not what I expected. I'm kinda worry and disappointed with this PV. it's was too much like "Ponytail to Shushu" even the dance. Because this is a hype song I though the video would be hype and happy but instead, I found it to be very nostalgic. So the video is basically, other AKB48 videos redone all over? This is weird. I can't get the feeling of a massive graduation out of my head. Which members are graduating? I have no clue, but AKB has been changing a lot this year and really I think this is something to worry about. I noticed how this video they really only focus on Acchan. Most of their videos do but this one especially. You can't barely see the other girls because it's like......Acchan's story? well I don't quite understand this video and I hope it has nothing to do with graduations. It's really hard not to think like that because of all the new people they've been promoting lately.

Screen Caps

These are what I can say the original parts of "Everyday, Kachuusha" the rest of the PV is just their other videos done all over.
I really don't get it and don't know what to think about it. it's very nostalgic to see all the other videos done again.

AKB48 "Everyday, Kachuusha" Covers

Okay so My thoughts on these covers are......HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! yes as much as it hurts to say this because is AKb and I love them, I can't lie about these covers. I strongly dislike these covers and I'm sad that i have to buy it because it's the election single(so I have to support my oshimen<33YUKO<33) I wished that because of this reason, this single would have better covers.
I hate it how in this single they have 25 members and they can only manage to put 4 people in the covers? this makes absolutely no sense. Not to mention that these covers are not original at all. Ponytail to Shushu part twoY_Y;

I really love the song, and since this is the election single I was really looking forward to it. Did they really had to ruin everything with these covers? First of all, You get Acchan with Jurina and Jurina #2(the new girl from NMB48). You have Acchan(againO.o) and Tomochin on a cover. Seriously do you need to only put two people on one cover when theres 25 members on this single. Also they're trying to make Tomochin the second face of AKB now placing her as the second centered member of AKB. First of all why would they even have an election when they don't follow the order of the election. Then they have two cover with Haruna, Takamina, Yuko and Yukirin. Why do you need to have two covers with the same four people instead of using different members. they're all members of AKB and they all deserve to be on the cover. The last cover is Mayu, Mariko, Acchan(againO.o) and Tomochin(they're also in the center front of this cover). They already have a cover together, only them two, why do they need to have another cover where they are also the center.

I really wish they would follow this election thing, cause seriously whats the point on even having it if you're not gonna follow it.
YUKO and acchan should've been on the solo cover not tomochin. Mariko was very pushed to the back of the only cover she's on when she's third most popular? I really don't get this. This single is for the election right? so with these covers they're just trying to make everyone vote for Acchan and for tomochin. i mean they have three acchan covers out of five. I was wishing they would have something more original than this. it's really like "Ponytail to Shushu". I hope the PV convince me more cause these covers are a huge down on me. I'm still buying this single because I have to vote for YUKO but, because of this reason I wanted better covers.

I really don't like the way they organized them on the promo picture. Kasai and Kitarie are being very pushed to the back because of this new Jurina(NMB48 girl) and because of Yui. I hope they're not taken out of the next single like they did to myao. Also how you have a senbatsu of 25 girls and you don't include Sayaka who's actually on the real senbatsu. AKB48 is so frustrating.

YUI new『HELLO~Paradise Kiss~』PV Movie Trailer

HELLO~Paradise Kiss~

This PV has to be YUI's cutest PV ever!!! I love all the different styles of clothing used on this video. I believe she's playing the main character as the song is from this character point of view. I love this video, It's just way too cute. I kinda wish the whole video wasn't green screen. I've never seem YUI looking so young before, I like this look because she looks so cute but then again I don't like the fact that they're trying to change her image. for this movie this look is perfect though.

Paradise Kiss Movie Trailer With "YOU" Preview

The Movie looks very similar to the manga. I'm happy they didn't change that many things. As for the actors playing the roles, I think they look very mature for this role. Seems like it's going to be a good movie. I personally love this manga except for the ending. I do wanna see the movie because I wanna see how they portrait the story and see if the actors can actually pull it off.

The preview of "YOU" sounds amazing!!! I'm really loving this single a lot. I'm exited because I like it more then her last 2 singles which I didn't like very much. I love "Your Heaven" but "it's my life" wasn't really a song I enjoyed much.

Autographed CD

So, I haven't been keeping up with After School at all, so I'm unfamiliar with the new girl and I can barely recognize the other girls (minus like the original girls + UEE) But I do like the sound of this although it reminds me of when you reach the sky level in video games. LOL Girls look really gorgeous though, and I'm looking forward to hearing what the song sounds like. 

According to YesAsia, this is the tracklist.

01. Let’s Step Up 
02. Shampoo 
03. Virgin

10. Funky Man 
11. My Bell 
12. When I Fall (2011 New Recordings)

My Chemical Romance Live @ Terminal 5 NYC

HI everyone!!!! This is a report from My Chemical Romance concert last night at Terminal 5 here in NYC.
let me start with saying that my ears are still buzzing from it, yes it was a hell of a show!! I got there at 4 pm but the line wasn't so big yet. good thing I got there early because later on there was just way too many people. I had to wait on the line till they let us in around 7:pm. I got mad they took my camera from me so I couldn't really take any pictures.

I had a good spot where I could see them real good, but that was only during the first two opening bands. The first band came out around 8 something I recall, but to be honest I don't remember their name(I was too exited to see MCR.)
The second band was Neon Trees which I never heard of before. I'm not that much into that kinda music I guess, But it was great. The band was very entertaining and I'm surprised I actually remember some of their songs. Since I was simply way too exited about seeing gerard I didn't put that much attention, the whole time I was whining about how bad I wanted to see MCR already.

I didn't like that there was too many teenagers there. It really killed the ambience, don't get offended but yes they're too immature and don't know how to enjoy a show properly. When My Chemical Romance finally came on people just went too crazy. I've never seem people go so crazy about them before. When I saw them about 4 years ago I believe around "The Black Parade" time, people didn't go so wild as now. but don't get me wrong, back them I though it was too crazy but this time was way worst. Things got really ugly. I was disappointed with the crowd.

The guys were awesome like always. gerard looked so gorgeous<3333 but that's not new. I was sad I didn't see Ray that much because I was on the left side. I was missing bob though, I still see him like a member of the band. Frank was fun to watch as always and mikey....well he looked really cute but I always wonder about he's serious face.

I believe this was the track list. it's not in order because to be honest I don't remember.

Vampires will never hurt you
Headfirst fot halos
I'm not Okay
Hang em' high
The Black Parade
Planetary Go!
Party Poison
The only hope for me is you
Vampire Money
Bulletproof Heart

Cancer Live

I had I really really great time and can't wait to see them again, but I just hope that next time there's more older poeple.

Rainbow- So Girls


Rainbow So Girls Mini Album
Although this was released earlier this month, it's still a pretty hot topic (TO ME at least...haha get it? get it?.....>_>)

The concept for To Me is definitely one of my favorites from Rainbow. Gossip Girl was on the cutesy side, A was sexy, Mach was, as they put it, dominatrix type style, but To Me is a mixture of confidence and class. The girls look extremely elegant in the video and look like they're having tons of fun while spray painting that guy's car. Woori's punch during the MV is definitely one of my favorite parts. I just remember spazzing when I saw the teaser. :3 I only have one complaint (and this is only because I really love these girls so I want them to do really well) They really need to find a new choreographer or something. As great as they are with the chest pumping, it's getting a bit old. They've also done that bit where Hyunyoung is in the center with the other girls circling around her like a million times already. (yes i exaggerate but whatever) Other than that, I'm really feeling the powerful vocals (Jaekyung, Jisook and Hyunyoung, I'm talking to you. ;3) Woori's rap is incredible, as is her solo dance moment during the MV and live performances. No Eul and Seung Ah look so gorgeous, and although it's still taking me time to get used to Yoon Hye's pixie cut, she's still rocking it.

I really seriously hope this song continues to do better because these girls really are talented and have great personalities. I already ordered my copy of this, just waiting for it to arrive with my Mr. Taxi single. ♥♥♥
