Of Chihara Minori’s Upcoming New Single, New Album, big plans for year 2009 and an emo townberrySeptember 16, 2008
Chihara Minori: A lady with big things planned for her in the year 2009
Oh hey peeps. After going MIA for nearly a month, I finally manage to drag my lazy bones and type in an entry for this blog. The reason for such a long absence? Partly because I am busy with my work and partly because I’m lazy but ultimately because I am emo.
Why am I emo? Because Lantis has big plans for Chihara Minori. Haha….doesn’t make sense eh? Why am I not rejoicing instead? Because I am confused and slightly pissed.
First of all, there’s a new single announced for Chihara Minori in cdjapan a few weeks back. But there wasn’t any news from Lantis itself so I thought it’s a fake news. Then even Amazon.co.jp started taking pre-orders for the single. Alright fine. So there IS a single coming out on the 5th of November 2008 for Minorin.
Then on September 13 2008, Minorin did a some sort of public airing of radio minorhythm where fans can actually attend and listen to whatever she says. On that day itself, she announced that there’s a NEW ALBUM coming out on the November 26 2008. The album is entitled “Parade”. In fact there’s already a theme/main song for the album entitled “Voyager Train” and there’s already a PV in the making for that song.
Wha…wait what? New album on the same month of a new single? Now, I highly doubt the release of the new single. Even if there is a new single…it means now I have to shop again for the new album and pay another time for it’s shipment. Gargh.
And oh wait, there’s more. Apparently there’s a BIG tour for Minorin in the year 2009. So big that she actually wrote “そしてそして 2009年のツアー大大大決定～” in her blog.
So curiousity got the better of me and I decided to search around the net and I happen to stumble upon an entry of a fan who attended the minorhythm live airing. Apparently, her big tour plan in 2009 means that she will be touring in China and/or Taiwan. Ah ha ha ha ha. Until the news is confirmed to be false, I’m going to hide under my bed and cry my heart out. Yay, tour out of Japan and go to China or/and Taiwan. Suddenly this makes me feel my country even more pathetic. Start buying ORIGINAL STUFF ALREADY you fella lepakians! Stop leeching! Make your own country be seen as a potential market for Lantis or Starchild.
Sigh. Well for now, the album has yet to pop itself up in sites like CDJapan or Amazon.co.jp to be pre-ordered. But I am guessing, it’s going to come up sooner or later. November is not that far away from today’s date. Until there’s any news from Lantis regarding Minorin’s upcoming releases, I’m going to resume crying under my bed while trying to finish up my project before the deadline arrives or else my supervisor will be hunting me down. Sigh, I hate my life all of a sudden.
