My NEWS Hikari no Shizuku/Touch copies finally arrived! Ugh, I hate having to use SAL shipping. I'm just happy they showed up before my KAT-TUN singles show up later this week (everything else I ordered will be coming EMS, thankfully). Despite all the bullshit with KAT-TUN, I suppose I am looking forward to seeing what kind of new music they'll have on the new singles. Plus, there's the one next month. And the NEWS album too. So much stuff @_@

As usual, the PV page has been updated for NEWS accordingly, although I'm pretty late to the party this time. Ah well. If you still need them, they're there.

Hmmm...

Hmmm...I wonder what I could be doing with all of these out? ;D

On that note, I am seriously sad I don't have a Blu-ray computer drive yet. They aren't in the pic here, but I have Blu-ray copies of Utsuku con and Anniversary con, and I can't do anything with them for this project yet :( Well, my PS3 can play them at least...

Needless to say, I've been enjoying the hell out of Kamen Rider Ghost, LOL! Reeeeally hoping it doesn't come back to bite me in the ass like Drive did, but at least this time the main Rider is the one I like, so I might be safe there...I mean, he's already dead, so how much worse can it get? (I shouldn't say that though, the writers would find a way)

Anyways, the toys are hella fun to play with, and I plan to try and collect all the main Eyecons, although I wouldn't complain about getting any of the more "fun" ones either.

Oh! And one more thing I just got today!

NEWS' Yonjuushi single! LE version, since I generally only pick those up since NEWS is second-favorite (KAT-TUN I will buy all editions of singles...albums and concerts are case-by-case basis, I generally only go LE for those too though. I love them, but JE shit's expensive, lol). Almost sad I didn't pick up the RE though, when i heard how awesome SPEAKER was, and EIEN has a gorgeous opening, and the rest isn't bad either, although it's the one I listen to least. Meanwhile, Yonjuushi has grown on me and I really like it and ANTHEM is freaking amazing! I think this is the first NEWS single where I've liked all the songs! That makes me happy. It's almost like this fandom knows I'd need cheering up.

Yonjuushi PV isn't bad either, but kinda sad Anthem couldn't have been the A-side (or a double-A-side instead), cause I'd rather have a PV for that, lol. I still need to watch the making though.

Part of me wonders if I should do a page similar to my KAT-TUN page for NEWS, although it'd have to be limited to just 4-nin stuff since that's all I have. Also, I can't do the concerts I have either (besides Utsucon's LE) because they're all Blu-ray and I don't have a computer drive for those yet ^^; Eventually though, I want one!

Still here

I'm still here! I barely update this thing anymore though...except when KAT-TUN releases stuff, which they did, lol.

I got both Limited Edition versions of the Come Here DVDs. So far I've only watched Yoyogi (the "default"). I'm debating which to watch afterwards. I'm thinking the Osaka Countdown concert. Then I can watch the Tokyo Forum one at my leisure.

Right now though, I've been hella busy. Work's been brutal, though starting to ease up a little. I've also been working on my cosplay on top of that. I'm almost done. Going to be cosplaying Rin Okumura from Ao no Exorcist/Blue Exorcist for this year's Animazement. Should be fun, but it's REALLY prop heavy ^^; I love my sword! <3 I'm thinking the tail will be fun too once I finish it. It's looking pretty good so far!

I also am currently watching Uta no Prince-sama. It's basically 'boybands, the anime' and it's on it's third season. It's kinda silly, but it has some great seiyuu and songs. At least it's something fun to watch since Bouei-bu is over.

Anyways, probably won't remember to post here again til Animazement, and I do my big post-con report. I am REALLY looking forward to it. ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D will be there!!! Here's hoping they play "In My World"!

It's been a while since I've posted pics of the full collection, plus someone asked to see it, so...here it is. I had to split them up because I don't have the floor space to spread it all out at once right now ^^; It's REALLY fun when I get a chance to though, last time I did it, I covered my bed! XD
Pics are a bit big, so they're under the cut )

This was fun, if not a little time consuming...but it's awesome to compare the pics from when my collection was just starting out. Fun fact, the VERY first single that started this whole mess was BIRTH (regular edition). I find the name highly appropriate. I had no idea things were gonna snowball into this though, lol. I regret nothing. It's been a lot of fun...mostly. I was sadly not lucky enough to will a Shin Shun Katsu Mode DVD (my friend entered for me with my CD codes), so that'll be the one thing I'll always be missing x_x

YESSSSS...

So, here's the recent additions to the collection...
This one came about a week ago:
First NEWS CDs, 1-31-13

...and THIS one, the one I've been waiting for the most, came today XD
2-7-13 order

So yeah, got the new KAT-TUN singles, of course...and I've also started a lovely little 4nin NEWS collection as well ^-^ It's staying strictly 4-nin though, I'm not interested in collecting old stuff for NEWS...it's a small miracle I'm even collecting their stuff at all ^^;

As for KAT-TUN stuff, I'll have some more cool things coming thanks to my awesome buddy [livejournal.com profile] effi_g helping me track it down. I'm really looking forward to it!
hikarikirameku: (Tagu-Jiiiiii~)
First NEWS CDs, 1-31-13

Yep...

Fun fact, I was REALLY debating on spending the money on the box set right now. There's a second, more expensive order coming out early February (and any KAT-TUN fans will know why XD ), so I didn't think it would be a good time, but I figured I could manage and jumped on it. After all, that was the ONLY place I could find the thing. They didn't even have any on Ebay (well, not the Japanese copies anyways). Turns out that was the LAST one on HMV. They changed the page t "sold out" after my order shipped. I was just like :O I'm glad I bought it when I did.

As for World Quest, I'm just kinda glad NEWS' LEs don't immediately sell out like KAT-TUN's have a tendency to, or I'd hhave never gotten it. That would have made me sad, as I like that PV even more than Chankapaana's, so of course I'd have to get that one too (plus, for completion's sake, since I'll be starting a 4-nin NEWS DVD collection).

That said, if you're wondering where the Utsukoi DVD is...well, it had to be pre-ordered a while back, and I threw it in the same order as the KAT-TUN CDs, so long story short...it'll get here when my copies of KAT-TUN's EXPOSE single gets here :P But I am getting it, the LE, and then I'll get to watch my first NEWS concert ^-^

...after the proper amounts of flailing over KAT-TUN of course XD

It's no CHAIN concert DVD, but hell, I'll take it! These came early! (They actually probably came yesterday, but we just now checked the mail today). This should help me take my mind off the wait for the other DVD.

Real Face concert+Going!

I'll be adding these to the other post soon enough as well. Especially Going since that shouldn't take long at all.

Heck yeah!

Snagged both KAT-TUN items I wanted from the Ebay auctions I was following! At minimum bid no less! I'll be getting a copy of the Going! LE single, and even more important, the Live of REAL FACE concert DVD. Their debut concert! Best part of all, with shipping and everything, it cost me less than $20. I love this seller. Even though I have to win the auctions, I've gotten some excellent deals! Helps make up for some of the crazy amounts of money I've spent getting other items in my collection x.x
hikarikirameku: (Tagu-Jiiiiii~)
Current goal - Acquire all released PVs and Concert DVDs

Singles/Albums needed:
- RESCUE (LE single)
- Love Yourself (Version A LE single)
- Going! (LE single)
- NO MORE PAIN (LE Album)
- WHITE (LE single)
- RUN FOR YOU (LE single)

Concert DVDs needed:
- Live of KAT-TUN "Real Face"
- TOUR 2007 cartoon KAT-TUN II You (LE optional)
- KAT-TUN LIVE TOUR 2008 Queen of Pirates
- KAT-TUN LIVE Break the Records (LE preferred)

...and on that note, I am getting SO DAMN CLOSE! Not bad for someone who just started collecting last Christmas! XD

I haven't decided if I'm gonna bother tracking down the Limited Editions of the concerts or not. Real Face and Queen of Pirates didn't have one, thankfully, but Cartoon KAT-TUN and Break the Records did, and you can find them, but they are insanely expensive. CK2U only comes with a bonus photo booklet, so that one's easily skippable. However, BtR came with a third disk with about an hour's worth of extras, so it MIGHT be worth it, if I can find it for a semi-reasonable price. It might be the last concert I buy anyways, so there's plenty of time to look. Luckily 6-nin stuff is getting progressively less popular, so it's falling in price, but then the LE stuff still carries a premium, so it's a toss-up. I'm hoping I'll luck out.

As far as the CDs go, the NMP album is the hardest and most expensive to track down right now, though any of the 2011 CDs are still expensive too, so I'm waiting. I've lucked out with a few, so I'm hoping that trend continues, and I've been keeping an eye out for people selling them other places, like Livejournal (I just snagged Ultimate Wheels that way!)

The hunt shall continue!

So yeah, finally got the last bit of stuff sorted out with the KAT-TUN CDs. As much as it pained me to be separated from almost $85 for only two CDs (well, and their DVDs), I kinda forgot about it when I saw the pic of my own copies she sent me, and that gorgeous STAR RIDER version of the BIRTH single. I am gonna scan the hell out of it when I get it, mostly because I STILL do not have a decent digital version of Taguchi's pic from it...which makes me very sad. The BIRTH version, well goes without saying, I'm excited for the Taguchi punishment game that's on it. Now I'll have both, since I already have CHAIN.

And just to show that I haven't abandoned my Kamen Rider fandom, I also snagged a Kamen Rider Gills S.H.Figuart from HLJ, since they're having a massive sale.

Still, I need to put buying anymore things on hold for a while, til my new job starts up. Which will hopefully be sometime after the 24th.

I think the next CDs I buy will be the Queen of Pirates and No More Pain LE albums. I'd like to also get more of the newer 5-man singles, but they're so freaking expensive x.x Plus, I need to keep a money buffer, since I have a feeling there will be a new single soon. I heard a new KAT-TUN song on a baseball commercial recently. I don't think the concert DVD will be out til summer, so I've got plenty of time to save for that.

My KAT-TUN "CHAIN" album came! It was waiting for me in front of the computer when I got home from work on Tuesday night. It was an awesome thing to see after a long, annoying late night work shift. I squee'd so hard when I saw it, my roommate thought I'd hurt myself XD I didn't think I'd get it til later this week, so I'm really excited! I've had the leak for a while, but there's nothing quite like listening to songs off your own disk, lyrics book in hand (well, I fail at reading most kanji, but I try to follow along where I can). I'll be making my own rips at some point too.

Right, so I'm gonna take a shot at reviewing this thing. Keep in mind, this is just what I think of it. Not that it matters, I liked pretty much this entire freaking album. Totally worth the $54 I spent on it ^^;

Review under the cut! )

Anyways, I'm loving this thing so much so far. I'm glad I ordered it.
