Top 3-person group survey

Last week Tsutaya asked viewers to name the first group that comes to mind when asked: Name the first group that comes to mind with 3 people.

The results are in, and we were kind of disappointed. w-inds. was in the lead for a while, but fellow groupmates Shuuchinsin managed to come out on top.

1 Shuuchisin
2 Yajima Biyositsu
3 Chat Monchii
4 w-inds.
5 Ikimono gakari
6 Pabo
7 Perfume
8 Rin tosite sigure
9 THE ALFEE
10 TM NETWORK

While twelve did make it, the rest do not count as to even 1%. At the number eleven and twelve spot are BREAKERZ and YMO.

DAIGO, Ai Kago and hyde at a goukon!?

DAIGO Ai Kago hyde

Josei Seven reports that singer DAIGO (31) and ex-Morning Musume., now Gravi Idol member, Ai Kago (21) were seen at a goukon together with other gravi idols at a dining restaurant.

They rented a VIP room with karaoke and ate. hyde (who DAIGO has much respect for) was also reported at the restaurant, but the two (DAIGO and hyde), were not in the same party and arrived separately.

It’s also reported that DAIGO has gone to this restaurant with other gravi idol goukons.

“The other gravi idols include Hitomi Aizawa (27) and Yuu Tejima (25), this time it’s Kagochan. The two (DAIGO and Ai) seemed to enjoy drinking together, but since Kagochan has very low tolerance for alcohol, she didn’t feel so good and went home. When she came out of the bathroom, she ran into hyde,” said a reporter.

hyde who was there with friends drinking, happened to get the room right next to DAIGO’s ‘goukon room’.

An insider said, “There seemed to be a lot of females, especially one’s from work.” They also said that hyde had caught wind of what was going on next door and ‘barged in’ on DAIGO’s parade. “They were singing their own songs, trying to out do one another; hyde wasn’t about to give up either, so he sang DAIGO’s song, and very good I might add.” This little ‘gorgeous recital’ lasted till early morning.

It looked like DAIGO and Kagochan had a good time drinking. It also seems that DAIGO set up this ‘meeting’ between Aizawa and Kagochan at the gouko – thus is the world of show business.

Even though at the end of it all, the point of goukon changed when hyde entered the picture; they all had a good time.

V-Rock Fest. = The best reunion

la'cryma christi

If asked three years ago if I’d expect La’cryma Christi to make a comeback, I would have said, “Hell no!

Well I was wrong; apparently the band will be reuniting for the V-Rock Festival on 10/24. Now that doesn’t mean they will continue activities. The reunion is only for the V-Rock Festival, depending on the fans reactions will determine whether or not they will continue after the event.

What is the V-Rock Festival? It’s a visual kei event sponsored by Sports Nippon. It is a two day event which will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba.

Honestly with a line-up like this, I’m tempted to go just for the two days to see half of these bands. I honestly didn’t know that half of them were still around either.

If you want to go, you can get tickets via their website. They have an international page for people who don’t read Japanese. (V-Rock Festival)
