Angela Aki has a Season of Love

Angela Aki celebrated her 32nd birthday today with friends, fans and staff. She held a special event, Megane-ko Couple! Season of Love Special Event (ok I really didn’t know how to put that into English, but megane-ko means child with glasses), at the Four Seasons Hotel in Aoyama.

This was in conjunction with her new single, “Season of Love” (Ai no Kiseki) which released 9/16, which made #5 on Oricon charts.

Happy Birthday Angela!

Big Bang is on TOP of DBSK

big bang dbsk

So on 8/19, everyone blogged about how Big Bang topped the Oricon charts with their two albums in Japan, but we all failed to mention the DVD they released too.

Both Big Bang and DBSK released DVD concerts on 8/19. Big Bang released their 2009 “BIG SHOW” concert, while DBSK released their 6 disk “All about Tohoshinki Season 3” DVD box, but only one reined supreme.

big bang - oricondvd

Well if these results don’t prove to us that Big Bang can surpass DBSK in Japan; well I don’t know what to tell you. Because DBSK‘s DVD box set didn’t even make the charts. You know what is still on the charts though?

dbsk dvd oricon rank

DVDs from two years ago. I wonder why their new DVD didn’t chart at all, especially if those two DVDs are still charting. Oh well, this just goes to show that DBSK‘s time is over. Although I still don’t want Big Bang in Japan.

Please stay in Korea, k thanks.

Whose your tanned vice?

Get your tan on because Oricon came out with the “tanned beauties” ranking and the results are in:

1 Miwa Asao
2 Namie Amuro
3 Rikako Murakami
4 Anna Tsuchiya
5 Meisa Kuroki
6 Masako Natsume
7 Kumi Koda
8 Yukina Kinoshita
9 Chinatsu Wakatsuki
10 Kimiko Date

The rank was done in lieu of “who has garnished attention through their tan”.

Well first off, I only recognize Namie, Anna, Meisa and Kuuchan. Namie I understand, she’s just naturally that dark, but Anna and Koda Kumi? I mean really, if they are considered “tanned” then what is their definition of being “white”? Anna is anything but tanned, really she is.

I think Oricon was grasping at straws with this one, because whoever came up with this idea, obviously did not think it through.
