Fairies’ 5th anniversary project

tumblr_o9nd6loru41rzneyjo1_500

Fairies will celebrate their 5th anniversary on September 21st. and this project is for us –international fans– to congratulate our precious girls on the special occasion.

It is basically a support-messages album/book that will be sent to the management’s mail address. The main purpose of this project is to help Fairies realize that they have fans supporting them from different parts of the world.


Who is ‘Fairies’?

tumblr_m8gt7uDaED1rzneyjo2_r2_1280

Fairies is a Japanese idol group formed in 2011 by Vision Factory and under Sonic Groove label. The group is consisting of 6 members. (left to right: Miki, Rikako, Miria, Momoka, Sora & Mahiro) Learn more about them here.

Also our friends over at ShiroiTenshi have subbed a few PVs – either check their website or their youtube.


Important notes:
– If you find difficulty in expressing in English or Japanese, we can help.
– Try to make your message short (maximum 4 lines).
– If you want your message to be in English, make sure you use simple words as Fairies’ English isn’t very good.
– You can add up to 2 images to your message, and they will be resized according to the template we will use. Zoomed-out photos are not recommended.
– You can add photos of yourself, your Fairies merchandise, or your country’s landmarks.
– Tumblr’s ask box doesn’t allow photos, so use ‘submit’ instead.
– If you have a question, contact any FairiesJpop.
– Messages will be organized according to earliest received msgs to latest, so send your message early to be on the first pages.
– There will be a section for fan-made pics/edits, so feel free to submit yours.


Please add your information between the brackets (Twitter account is optional) and type your message.

Majisuka Gakuen 5 Announcement

vlcsnap-2015-07-20-13h38m48s154

We’re doing this.

Seriously.

Yo Era here.

Majisuka Gakuen is a particularly memorable adornment of AKB48 to me. It was one of the earliest AKB-related things I watched, and as like many of you, I was fascinated by the gratuitously bloody sight of girls punching the shit out of each other, despite shaky plotholes and bad acting at times.

Over the years I’ve grown disdainful of it, unfortunately. Majisuka Gakuen 2 was acceptable despite multiple plotholes big enough to fit a city in it, and I did enjoy the captivating characters involved. Majisuka Gakuen 3’s change of setting was a no-no for me, though the improved action scenes and quite some awesome footage of Miyu was its silver lining.

And then came Majisuka Gakuen 4, a step back to the old formula that worked. I was so hyped.

But ultimately disappointed; the fact that Sakura could plow through so many opponents with relatively little character development, the lackluster character design of the 4 Heavenly Queens, a plot revolving on Zombie and Kamisori always getting kidnapped or put down- not unlike Boy Hostage Robin. And then there were the cameos, which while a breath of life, had so absolutely little to do with the plot that it was obvious they were worked in for the sake of simply being worked in.

But credits where credits are due; Salt is plain bloody friggin’ awesome.

Well now, after a cut-short episode 10 thingy where the season went unresolved, where do we go from here?

*checks trailer*. Guns… yakuza… and guns.

Huh.

Definitely dangerous territory here. These introductions into new grounds could either make it or break it. Once again, I hope the series prove me wrong and produce an ultimately stunning piece of art.

And c’mon. Acchan. Yuuko. The original ‘Maji da yo’!

We realise Aidol haven’t been on top of our game lately, but we’d rather not see this fall into bad sub territory. Yankee talk isn’t exactly easy to translate- and considering the number of subpar translators there are out there these days, I’d rather see this in the right hands.

So. In conclusion. Aidol already has galvanized a team together in anticipation of Majisuka Gakuen 5, and is ready to take it on.

Remember: Ain’t no other way to live but seriously. Climb those stairs.

Another one of these Shopping Lists

Recently a few people messaged me (Yukirin) ragarding that list with interesting items we put together around christmas last year. (that one).

At this point please let me remind you about the ad-rotation feature with 48-Group (and Nogi) Goods you might be interested in. (If you don’t see it please de-activate your adblockers, we promise there won’t be any annoying ads except those there).

If you click on one of these ads (or suggestions) and place an order on CDJapan, we roughly receive a few percent of your order amount. No additional costs for you. So if you can’t/don’t want to donate. This is a good way to support your 48Group and AIDOL the same time.

Thanks to all of you who keep buying good via our links – we really apreciate your support.

That aside – for some odd reason you guys asked me to put another one together. I heard ya and now try to give a few suggestions on what to buy for yourself / friends or your mother (lol).

Christmas is coming.

 

Christmas Eve is coming closer, 7 days to go. Why are you talking about Christmas you might ask. The reason behind it is that i want to drag your attention to the “new” sidebar over there.

As you’ve probably noticed the last couple of weeks we inserted an ad-rotation feature with 48-Group (and Nogi) Goods you might be interested in. (If you don’t see it please de-activate your adblockers, i promise there won’t be any annoying ads there).

Why am I telling you all this? Most people don’t know that, if you click on one of these ads (or suggestions) and place an order on CDJapan, we roughly receive a few percent of your order amount. No additional costs for you. So if you can’t/don’t want to donate. This is a good way to support your 48Group and AIDOL the same time.

At this point i want to thank all donators (and people who used the ads to place their order) this year. Thank you for all your kindness. Please keep supporting us even in the upcoming year, as our 4th anniversary is almost round the corner.

Also as a few of you already know, most of team will attend next years 2shot event, that means we might do another giveaway again. Details regarding this will follow when everything is final.

That being said. If you still don’t know what to buy for yourself, or a friend for christmas here are a few suggestions from the team:

AIDOL Wallpaper Pack 22

209

Yaho~,

It’s been a while since we published the last wallpaper pack – Momo has been pretty busy and we all had our priorities somewhere else. But its finally here – Wallpaper Pack #22.

And because Momo is still using a calculator as her home computer (yes she finally got rid of her abacus), she made the first Wallpaper in a wrong format. but we use this as an small extra: Small Wallpaper Pack #1, neat isn’t it?

You can grab both Packs below, if you like please tell us your favorite one from those Packs.

As always we hope you enjoy these wallpapers and continue to support us.
