I Want You To Love Me From 1 To 10

I wanted to post this pic up cuz it's epic:

Morning Musume leader Takahashi Ai has announced graduation. MM fans knew this was coming, including me, so it's not surprising news. But it's sad. Cuz she's been a fan fav for a long time and the longest serving leader of the group. She's been my fav member since I started liking MM. Here's Tsunku's (Producer of MM) statement:

"This is the comment regarding Takahashi Ai’s graduation from Morning Musume.

"Thank you for your continual support as always.
As announced directly herself on the stage of January 9th’s show at Nakano Sunplaza,
5th generation member, Takahashi Ai will be graduating from both Morning Musume and Hello! Project in Morning Musume’s concert tour this fall.

"When the proposal for Kamei Eri’s graduation was made last year,
I told Takahashi Ai, “It’s about time you should consider the timing of your own graduation and what you want to pursuit afterward” as an advice.

"The 5th generation members will have joined Morning Musume for 10 years.
Takahashi Ai is the 6th leader and has been in this position for 3 years and 7 months.
Takahashi Ai holds the record for being the longest in the group and the longest to hold the leader position.
Looking back, she has honestly carried the responsibility for all this time.

"(In no disrespect to all former members and leaders of the group…excuse me)

"I have talked with her about various things, such as her activities afterward
As announced in the new year concert, her graduation will be in Morning Musume’s Autumn concert tour,
this was the right time to make the announcement.

"Since there are still more than half a year to go,
the 9th generation members have to familiarize themselves with Morning Musume’s music
and dances, to become self aware that they are part of the group.
Takahashi plans to properly finish her job as leader in the mean time.

"Please be looking forward to what will become of Morning Musume.

"Takahashi Ai will continue to be active in music, theater, and live events after her graduation.
Details will gradually be released.

"Also, after Takahashi Ai’s graduation, Niigaki Risa will assume the leader position of the group,
and become the longest active member of Morning Musume."

Here's Takahashi Ai's announcement:

"It has been decided that, I, Takahashi Ai, during Morning Musume’s concert tour this Autumn,
will be graduating from Morning Musume and Hello! Project.
At the time when Kamei Eri, JunJun and LinLin’s graduations were decided,
Tsunku-san told me, “It’s about time Takahashi should think about your own graduation’s timing!”
which has gotten me thinking.

"I will have been in Morning Musume for 10 years comes this August,
So I thought it will be a good time! to graduate in the Autumn Morning Musume concert tour.

"As there are still around 9 months left, I will do my best as leader until that time to shape up this new Morning Musume.

"I will be affectionate to the newly added 9th generation members as I try to teach them various things, everyone please rest assured."

Again, this is sad and disappointing news to hear. But I will wish her good luck in the future. Hopefully she will become a solo artist because she has a really great voice and is very talented. Niigaki Risa will become the new leader of Morning Musume (and most likely the leader of the Hello! Project as well) and Michishige Sayumi will become sub-leader.

Takahashi Ai will graduate at the end of the Morning Musume 2011 Fall Tour.

Two Questions

Tomorrow is the first day back to school. It's the beginning of the end of my high school education. Holy crap...

I'm not gonna lie; today kinda sucked. It got better near the end, but overall, it kinda sucked. Sometimes I don't see the point in putting up with this shit.

Here's my new video where I ask Power Rangers and/or Super Sentai fans two very important questions! If you are a fan (and maybe even a hater of one of the two), watch this video and answer the questions! You can comment your answer here on Blogger or on YouTube. Here are the questions:

Two character promos for the Power Rangers Samurai have been aired. Here they are:

Power Rangers Samurai will be premiering on Monday, February 7 @ 8:00 PM!

And here's the new EPIC Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger promo:

And if you haven't noticed, I have deleted more videos from my YouTube account in order for my account to stay alive. I once had over 400 videos; now I have 364.

Le Sabre Limited

Holy shit! I gotta car!!! FINALLY!!! XD

So my dad saw this car online from a private party for a few weeks and was keeping his eye on it. He thought it woulda sold because it's very nicely maintained car at a good price. The owner of the car called my dad yesterday and told him that it was still available. So my, my brother, and I went up to El Cajon to check it out. My dad test drove it (I'm not aloud to test drive it cuz I'm not 18 x/) and instantly loved it. My dad actually bought this car on the spot.

He told me that when he knows that you've found the right car, you're sold. And he KNEW that he found the right car. Well... for me at least. :D

It's a 2001 Buick Le Sabre Limited and it's silver. It's very similar to my dad's car, which is a silver 2003 Buick Regal, but the Le Sabre is a step higher than the Regal. There's a black cover on the roof, which made the car look like it was a convertible, which my dad thought it was at first. But it turns out it wasn't, which is totally fine with me. It looks very nice and it also has custom paint jobs on it and brand new tires. It has so much more features on it than my dad's car. Yah... he wants my car. xP

So he said he wants to drive it to work sometimes. -___- Ehh.. I don't really care. As long as I have a car available to me 24/7! Life is going to be so much easier for me! I feel the stress lifting itself off me already! :D (Well, most of the stress. :P)

And it drives exactly like my dad's Regal, but better. XD I drove it to my grandparents' house and they like it too. :D Then we came home and parked it in the garage, and when my mom came home and opened the garage, she was like "another buick?!" XD But she likes it too. She wants to learn how to drive such as beast. XP

Oh yah and I got a debit card too, which was outta nowhere. XP

Anyway, I have a new video up on YouTube. It's of the new Power Rangers Samurai Mega Ranger & Villain Figures that I got a few days ago! :D Check out the video:

Morning Musume 9th Generation Members Announced!

Morning Musume Producer Tsunku has announced the new members of Morning Musume: Sayashi Riho, Suzuki Kanon, Ikuta Erina, and Hello!Pro Egg Fukumura Mizuki. These four girls join Takahashi Ai, Niigaki Risa, Michishige Sayumi, Tanaka Reina and Mitsui Aika, bringing Morning Musume up to a total of nine members once again.

There were 5 finalists and originally, Tsunku said that there would only be 1 new member to the group. Of course, Tsunku "surprised" fans and added 3 new members. And then he announced that he was adding a Hello!Pro Egg to the group. Although he did say the Eggs were allowed to audition to be in Morning Musume.

I'm glad Tsunku was smart enough to add more than one girl. This is probably the most lively starting generation that MM has ever had. Plus, these girls are talented; of course some girls being more talented than others, and in my opinion, those are Sayashi Riho and Fukumura Mizuki, both who have had experience in the entertainment business.

Now all we can do now is congratulate the new members and wait until they have a new single out! :D

Congratulations Sayashi Riho, Suzuki Kanon, Ikuta Erina, and Fukumura Mizuki! And good luck to the 9 current members of Morning Musume!

Switch Morphin Red Samurai Ranger

Happy New Years Eve!

As I was saying yesterday, I bought my very first Power Rangers Samurai toy two days ago! It's the Red Switch Morphin Ranger! Check it out:

I was debating on whether to get three of the 4 inch Mega Rangers first, this figure, or the Blue Switch Morphin Ranger. I will be getting all 5 of the 4 inch Mega Rangers very soon, possibly today. And I also plan I getting the Samurai Megazord and the other two Switch Morphin Rangers. I'm not sure if I am going to get the Regular Ranger Set (all 4 inch Rangers in their original costumes in one set). I might get that if I have extra money saved up.

This figure that I got was about $10 and is pretty damn god for the price. It stands about 6.5 inches tall and it comes with a Samurai sword (which is about 4 inches long) and two hostlers for the belt on each side. The head can be flipped from it's "Ninja mask" civilian form to the Ranger helmet and back again with just a click of the button that is on his back. Before opening the box, you can try it out where it says "TRY ME" on the back to see it's head flip. I did this before buying it to make sure it works properly.

There's not much articulation because of the head-flipping ability that it's meant to be made for. The paint and detail jobs on it are well done, especially the design of the sword. The paint on the figure itself is spot on. I don't talk about the paint, detail, or articulation of the toys I get, so if you wanna know any of that stuff, just go buy the toy and find out for yourself. XD

But take my word for it; this figure is a beast, so get it. Sure, the look on the Ranger isn't the same as the TV show, but give it a try. It doesn't look bad at all.

Tomorrow is officially the first day of 2011!

Old Videos Deleted, New Videos Uploaded

I had to delete more videos from my YouTube Account. In order to keep my channel, I have to keep deleting all the videos that have Content ID Matches. I've had a lot of videos with Content ID Matches and I've had a lot of warnings from YouTube. So I had to delete about 10 videos from my account. Some of my videos I had to use Audio Swap because of the audio I used. As of now, my channel is still alive and going. I just have to be careful of the audio and video that I use. The only song I am able to use for my videos as of now is the instrumental version of Morning Musume's "Shouganai Yume Oibito". It's a good song, but it gets too repetitive when I use the same song for all my videos. Most of my recent videos have this song. I will find another song that I can use to give some diversity to each video, like I used to back in the good ole' days.

But I also uploaded new videos in the past few days. Two of the videos are of the new Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger that are appearing in February 2011. The promotional stuff for this season isn't going to end for a LONG time:

Then my third video is of the stuff I bought at Power Morphicon 2! Originally, I was going to have 2 parts to this video. I uploaded Part 1 that featured the Zeo Deluxe Red Batllezord earlier this week, but it was one of the videos I had to delete today. So this video is basically Parts 1 and 2 combined:

And I got my very first Power Rangers Samurai toy yesterday! :D I will have a video of it tomorrow! Here is my VIDEOS IN THE WORKS list:

Coming December 31, 2010:
1. PR Samurai Switch Morphin Fire Ranger
Coming Early 2011:
