New Perfume Double A single “Laser Beam/Kasu ka na kaori”

I’ve been very slow at this, but probably also because amuse posted it on April Fool’s Day:

    2011/05/18(æ°´) Release!!

    [初回限定盤] (CD+DVD) 特製スリーブケース仕様 TKCA-73650 ¥1,500 (tax in)
    [通常盤] (CDのみ) TKCA-73655 ¥1,000 (tax in)

    1.レーザービーム ※「キリンチューハイ 氷結」CMソング
    3.レーザービーム -Original Instrumental-
    4.微かなカオリ -Original Instrumental-

    □レーザービーム -Video Clip [Short Ver.]-

The Limited Edition version of the CD comes with a DVD with a short version of “Laser Beam” PV and some jacket cover with photographs of the making of the PV.

Unfortunately, the CD jacket cover pictures have yet to be released, so we’ll just have to wait and see :D

I’ve already pre-ordered my copy, but CDJapan has long sold out its pre-order bookings. Looking forward to its release on 18 May!

Happy 22nd Birthday to a-chan!


Many fans have noticed that a-chan has become much beautiful over the past year, even amongst other artistes as well!

May a-chan continue to have another fruitful year ahead, and buy many more pajamas for her collection!

P.S: With Tokyo Dome conquered, what else brings for Perfume, especially a-chan? Could a chance of an overseas live follow up? Hopefully time would tell.

Perfume live overseas – thoughts and input


The recent MAMA, or Mnet Asia Music Awards, instigated this post to be up. Perhaps ‘instigated’ is too strong a word, maybe ‘coerced’ would be a better term. XD

Nevertheless, this post is about how potentially a Perfume live may or may not come to be to the rest of the world outside of Japan.

And so, my very belated post about my trip. Quite a fruitful one, since I only had 3 days to do all the things I need to do.

Anyone up for some Perfume Tokyo Dome screening?


As most Perfume fans already know, there was a TV broadcast of Perfume’s Tokyo Dome performance recently. So in effort to promote more awareness, as well as… erm, collectively fanboying/fangirling while watching their Tokyo Dome performance, I have decided to organise a screening session for this very purpose.

Depending on the amount of interested participants, the final location varies. Also, do state the date your comfortable with. Preferably in the month of December. If the turnout is good enough, I might be able to hold it at a Community Centre’s auditorium, preferably centralised area for the benefit of everyone. Though that might amount to a small cost incurred, as booking the auditorium requires money. Each person will most likely pay not more than 5 bucks.

Personally I’ll be busy on the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 11th and 14th, 30th and 31st of December.

I’ll bring some of my live goods out as well, if anyone wishes to have a look. Note that I will not be bringing any CDs out, as most of them are still sealed – I’m a collector that way.

Do comment if you are interested!

Found a very amusing and nicely drawn summary of what the girls did at Tokyo Dome. Now, only if it comes in color… 8D
