Oh, come on! Someone has to translate that!! Pleeeeeeeease!!???


She looks cute and adorable (as ever)... love the glasses look.


Kei-chan is looking good as well, and Yossy looks very different since last I saw her... which was probably her H&A days! :)

Let me predict:

"It was a very nice show, but Takahashi's part wasn't big enough."

To be honest, unless it is a show where she is the lead... and all she does is sing with a live band and perhaps have some backing singers (aka Morning Musume), and does a show like "An Audience with...", then in my opinion your prediction is pretty much nailed on! ;)

With regard her emotional singing: I saw a youtube vid that compared Ai-chan to the lead singer of SNSD (Taeyeon?)... alternating some of their performances... and while it was clear the other girl was a far more precise and clear and classical a singer, it was Ai-chan who seemed to sing the emotion of the song far far better. And the overall sound of Ai-chan's vocals, the nuances, the timbre, the roughness, just spoke more than any pristine vocals could do.

She also has a comfortable range that is lower than most other singers, while still able to hit the highs. And I've always liked the sound of female singers in the slightly lower range: Dusty Springfield, Alison Moyet etc.

Aw, heck. I could go on forever trying to explain what the sound of her singing does to me... and I don't even understand the words she's singing!

I've never been one to listen to lyrics too much... the voice is just an instrument, as far as I'm concerned.


(And the fact the her vocals are wrapped up in such a Lovely package... a mere bonus!) ;)

To be honest, any cover by Ai-chan is generally better than the original - at least of H!P songs.

At least to my ears. ;)


And that English intro... soft, syrupy, smexiness. :)

I used to have all the HPN episodes with Ai-chan... but lost them :(

If anyone knows where they might be... some of them were just adorable... Yuu-chan fawning over Lovely was just wonderful to watch. :)
