Aya Kamiki is moving to Tokyo

kamiki aya

Singer, Aya Kamiki, has joined the ranks of avex artists. She recently shared the stage in Osaka with DBSK, Ayumi and other avex artists at a-nation ’09. Her previously label GIZA, located in Osaka let her go, and now she has moved to Tokyo to join avex and their wonderful ranks of artistry.

Like all artist that release their first single with a (new) label, her first single will be the opening theme song to “Kamen Rider W” starting 9/6. However, her single will not be released till 11/11, “WBX~W Boiled Extreme”, a collaboration with TAKUYA (ROBO+S).

Aya’s not a bad singer, she’s like the Avril of Japan (if there was going to be one). What gets me though, if the song is going to be used for Kamen Rider W in September, why release it 2 months later?

Oh well, I’m looking forward to it, and you should too.

TVXQ @ a-nation

It’s been over a week since a-nation 09, but better late than never, right?  We got our grubby little hands on some photos of TVXQ. I’m not into this group or anything, but I have to say, some of these shots are looking good.

This is a sign that I’ve been writing way too much TVXQ on here. Tell me, should I stop posting TVXQ stuff?

If posting elsewhere please use the following credit and link back. Thanks.
