Tokyo TV Anison – Minorin Interview!

header
Click on the header above for the site

I haven’t been doing any posts for minorin love as of late, but I’m making up for the lack of posts with today’s post. :D

Apparently Tokyo TV has released their own site featuring various anime seiyuu as well as song artistes, and this week’s guest interviewee is none other than Minorin~~~ *claps* I should spoil the contents of the interview itself, but it proves to be very entertaining, indeed. Witty questions. 8D You’ll need either Windows Media Player or Winamp to play the stream. Each interview lasts about 30 minutes, and a new one broadcasts every Tuesday morning at 3.15AM.

And next week’s broadcast will be a bumper special, featuring Tetsuya Kakihara , Shimakawa Mikuni and Nakamura Yuuichi aka ume’s otou-san. XD

さらばだ!

[22/04] Animelo 2010 updates!

aniup

More updates since angela and ALI Project has been announced on the 10th earlier this month (missed that update), and this time, 2 popular anison ladies have been confirmed to perform this year.

Yuuka Nanri performed at Animelo 2009 as part of FictionJunction. This year, she’ll be going solo; as to whether FictionJunction would participate in Animelo this year as well, we can only speculate at this point in time.

Yuuka Nanri will be performing on the 1st day, 28th August.

Minori Chihara, aka Minorin, will be performing on the 2nd day. Her recently announced ‘bonus’ last leg of her “Sing All Love” Tour at Budoukan set a foothold on her popularity as an anison singer, joining the ranks of her peers like Hocchan, Yukarin, Nana and May’n.

Unfortunately, ALI Project happens to perform on the 29th of August as well. I hope that there won’t be any duets with any of the abovementioned ladies, and that the standard should be at the very least, of Animelo 2009’s. The ‘horror’ of Arika ‘butchering’ Nana-chan’s Eternal Blaze still etched deeply into my mind.

I’ve been a little slow with updates due to work, so pardon me.

Minorin solo in Music Japan!

seiup_1268581424202s
Minorin performed “Yasashii Boukyaku”, theme song for Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu

Minori Chihara aka Minorin gave her first non-Anime SP performance on Music Japan a few hours ago! As March 14th is known as White Day, her setting sure’s white indeed, fitting for the very day of the broadcast. The performance, albeit short, is nothing short (pun semi-intended) of perfect.

My guess as to how/why Minorin performed this song might be due to 1) good oricon single charts – it hit 8th on the oricon charts the previous week 2) Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu had good ratings for a movie, even though it’s an anime title.

Seiyuu funnies

Surfing around seiup and around seiyuu blogs unearths some very interesting news. Some may not be funny and/or interesting to you, but it’s rather…. out of the ordinary?

May’n
maynrilak
Her obsession with rilakkuma has taken new heights – or rather, she’s now pimping it on her blog. Think she’s now a rilakkuma-otaku…. or something like that.

Her blog post’s over here.

3 Years of Rinbu Revolution at Animelo – Comparisons with Nana, Minorin and May'n

Well, May’n didn’t duet with Makkun 輪舞-revolution, but I’m comparing the 3 biggest things in Anison that duet with Makkun and her songs, and Miracle Upper WL is a great song. I like all three ladies as anison singers, but I’m a fan of only two out of the three. =P

Let’s begin with Nana’s duet first:

More merchandise to buy in Japan

As I found out that I can dig out more of my savings to fuel my ‘otaku’ needs, I opened a link that leads to Perfume’s concert merchandise.

And that’s the end of my savings. ;_;


And to think that I could use that money to get Minorin merchandise… Looks like I’ll have to scrap the thought of buying that Blu-Ray ;_;

Minorin and May'n LIVE goods

After that eventful post of the 2 ladies in the earlier blog post, we come to the next segment: their ‘LIVE’ goods. Even though I’m not heading to either of their LIVE events, I have my connections to get concert items from those Lives. 8D

One is a May’n fan from Japan (he came over to watch May’n at AFA08), the other’s another blogger going to Animelo as well.

(I went to the Daicon one instead for Minorin because it’s nearer, and I’m able to watch May’n perform LIVE at Animelo later next month anyway)

*ahem* In any case, the goods in the pictures below:

MAY’N SUMMER TOUR “LOVE & JOY” 2009

I’m planning to get only the white shirt. I’m really tight on budget in this upcoming trip to Japan. *dies*
