Vague question but dying for an answer! Anyone in Japan at the moment, does anyone know what girl group song is really popular at the moment? I hear this song in public so much, and not a clue what it is. And the only lyrics I remember are "Sakura kimi wo....", and even that may be wrong xD But it's a light pop song, with a catchy melody, and I can't type a melody :(

    I'm not sure, but it might be: "Sakura Saku Aoi Haru (さくら咲く青い春)" by SILENT SIREN.

So for one of my modules, we have to write an essay on two different Japanese media, and what they show us about Japan/popular culture, and compare the similarities/contradictions they show us. For music, it can be an artist or one of their works. Anything in particular you guys think would be interesting?

    I mean, there was that one MV by MeseMoa recently that got really big because it had all the guy idols kissing each other. You could relate it to Japan and their openness towards this subject?

Never understood the hate for poor Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru, I love that song :P

    It is easily better than Egao, Tokyo and OaO for me. I still don't dig the pauses and the chanting, but I love the beat and the rest.

Just had my first H!P concert in Japan, ANGERME! A lady was laughing at how happy my face was when I realised I get to shake all their hands!! I had no idea this happened, feeling starstruck!

    Wow! That is an awesome deal. Sasaki is in ANGERME, right? Tell us what it was like to shake hands with her.

A little short notice, but I'm going to see ANGERME tonight in Nagoya, and this is my first H!P concert in Japan. Does my ticket number actually mean anything in terms of how good my seat is? It's only a 1100 capacity venue, so wondering if it's first come first serve in terms of seats?

    First come, first serve, yes. Mostly standing room, if not standing room only. Your ticket number may refer to your place in line, or it may not. Ask when you get there.

Just joined Ayumi Hamasaki's global fan club, so hopefully get to see her FC only shows this year ^_^ Surprises me H!P doesn't have a global fan club considering how much more they promote themselves to the international fanbase these days.

    They aren't forward thinking enough for that kind of thing. They just seem to tolerate foreign fans and keep them at arms length. Good for the money if they can find an angle to make more money out of them by taking commission from a proxy service but not something they care about.

Having only recently put ANGERME on my iTunes, it hurts the OCD in me to have them seperately from S/mileage

    I don't know if Itunes supports something similar but I circumvented this on MediaGo by setting the reading for アンジュルム to スマイレージ www

    iTunes has a feature that lets you keep the names separate but sort them together. Right click > get info > sorting > then put 'スマイレージ' in the 'artist sort as' section.

    Done, thanks! If I have S/mileage on shuffle, still have to go seperately to Angerme on the iPod though :P

Which H!P groups did you used to like quite a lot, then just lost interest in? I became a H!P fan in 2008 and remember discovering Berryz, and they just had amazing song one after another. Then Maji Bomber happened. And for the most part, it went downhill for me, with at least half their singles not doing much for me. Also J=J, I liked their first two indies and their major debut, but got kinda bored of them. What about you guys? :)

    Interesting. There used to be a subset of ladies I really liked. But now, there's Kudo, Sasaki, Miyamoto who are just as good. It's probably a matter of time. Not enough time to watch everything. That said, I wouldn't pass up the chance to see Haruka, Rikako,or Karin live.

    Interesting reading your replies guys, thanks! Kind of a shame it happens, I remember the days discovering H!P and really, really loving it, regularly buying normal merch and the pride of owning rare FC merch ^_^
