Kago Ai on Friday 4 ... Voices from Japan (draft)

I wanted to know what the reactions of the Japanese fans, media, and non-fans are like, with regards to Kago Ai's interview with Friday.

So there I was, patrolling the Japanese domains, news sites, blogs...etc. And the result is ... very unexpected, to say the least. I'm in the midst of information gathering, accumulated links and articles. Then I'll see what I can summarize from there.

Man, it was a heck of a lot of input, I'm getting an information overload here. One of the things highlighted, and I'm sure many of us have heard of by now, is the rumoured return date of Aibon - 6th May 2007. The same day of the graduation of Yoshizawa Hitomi. And that Aibon is rumoured to make a surprise comeback to appear at the concert in Saitama Arena. While some fans are happy, most of the rest are not, because it may take away the spotlight of Yossie's graduation event.

I'll get to the compiling afterwards and start on the draft. I'm in office right now, and I really shouldn't be surfing while at work. Heh! ^_^

xD The Japanese fans should be a bit more happier Aibon is back. O_O Yossie will still be at H!P. I think Aibon would be there at Yossie's grad as part of 4th gen...

I had the same feeling about aibon comming back on yossies graduation. it doesnt seem very fair, because it most likely will take a bit away from yossie when it shouldnt. Maybe if they brought her back on H!M on the week after.. that would be nice. And not cause too much of a ruckus, or take away from anyone in particular.

Bringing her back after Yossie's graduation means that she can't be a part of it. They need to bring her back before the graduation.

I am not that sure about Kago´s coming back, since Nozomi is releasing a single under the name "Atena: Nozomi Tusji" which will be a version of "Koko ni Iruze" (the news are quite... new xD, but I guess they are true).

And well, I think that, if Nono is releasing solo singles, maybe W is definitely not coming back...

I was afraid this would come up, and it would not be appropriate for Aibon to come back and upstage Yossi's graduation. But then again, Tsunku is good at theatrics and might be planning some kind of supernova event to settle both accounts.

With regards to the comment by "Anonymous," I was concerned too reading that news about Tsuji's single. But doesn't W bring in like 10% percent of the revenues? Or something like that - seems like Tsunku would want to keep the unit in tact. Unless he decides he can't have GAM and W at the same time.......

Anyways, what's the deal with the Japanese fan feeling so negative about Aibon's return? YES she screwed up. SHE'S HUMAN. everybody messes up. funny thing is, i'm sure A LOT of kids smoke underage in Japan - so shouldn't they have some sort of sympathy and empathy? She's learned her mistake. Just look at those eyes in the photos.

im more concerned with Aibon's health (or weight, to be exact) i mean watching W's last* (i think) live performance of Miss Love Tantei, i thought she was already too thin, and she mentions her weight loss in her interview... i dont know, maybe im biased of my own standards of 'kawaii'ness. found myself staring at the Friday sacns not really knowing what to think (but smiling^^) but anyway, what matters is that shes comin back ^^

Glad to know that we are on the same wave, guys. ^_^

That Atena Tsuji bit? I have heard of it. But I thought that has something to do with her voicing participation in the Keroro Movie. They didn't state her character name though. SO I'm not sure.

Somehow what you guys posted here reflects on my next post. Pls check it out, and let me know what you think. ^_^

Mick a.k.a. jinryuichi said...

Ok... my mistake. Just found out Nono's character's name is "Maru".

Naureen said...

im glad that she will be back. come on i know some kids here in Australia who are like 12 (being serious) and they smoke.

its like almost 80% of the people all around smoke why is it such a huge deal??...
