Nintendo Switch Direct: Impressions
So Nintendo finally gave us more details on their new console after first showing it with that video last year, and what a showing it was.
It all sounded good at first. They showed a price, release date and revealed that the Switch, unlike their other consoles would FINALLY be region free! No longer do you have to buy another version of the same console just to play a game that they weren’t willing to release in the west. The price of $299 USD was a bit high but most people were expecting them to price it at that range. March 3rd as the release day was a shocker as well.I along with most people probably expected middle or late March, not 6 weeks out from the announcement date. All in all though, things were going smoothly.
Hello! Project Songs on Wii Karaoke U by Joysound
If you happen to own Wii U or know someone who does, and if you happen to be a Hello! Project fan, it might delight you to know that there are some familiar songs featured on Wii Karaoke U! Other Jpop idol songs are available as well, but since H!P is what I know, this list is focused on them. There are enough songs for a few hours of entertainment, at least, and in places without authentic Japanese karaoke options, Wii Karaoke U is a somewhat decent replacement!
Note that I am listing the songs as they are marked on their website, so there may be weird spellings and typos on their end. By using their spellings, it should be easier to find the songs and artists on their service.
A History of the Top Tier Cutest in Hello! Project
This post is a look back at members who have defined ‘kawaii’ in Hello! Project, and some suggestions for who might take the throne in the future. These are members who have enjoyed popularity and career success not only for their talent, but also almost super-humanly cute looks, and you might say primarily for those looks. The list is biased in the sense that all humans are biased, but these are not my favourite members. These are members who were or are especially known for their cuteness; members whose cuteness would attract the attention of casual passers-by, members who are cute enough to receive compliments from people who are not interested in idols in the least. They are the opposite of ‘acquired taste’, having features that are generally valued in Japan; the small faces with symmetric features, likely big eyes (although as you will see, there are exceptions to that rule), a kitten-like quality that melts the hearts of all but the most dedicated haters.
