Leo Ieiri – LEO (unboxing)

Release Date: 2012/10/24
Catalog No.: VIZL-502
Number of discs: 2
Available at cdjapan.co.jp

Yesterday Leo Ieiri received the “Best New Artist” award at the annual music award show “The 54th Kagayaku! Japan Record Awards”. I think she deserve it. She has a very good voice, her songs are great and she did a great job this year. I saw a short preview of her debut single on YouTube and liked it very much.

I have started to buy J-POP CDs only this fall so I have only her debut album “LEO” and her latest single – “Bless You”. Limited edition of her album doesn’t come with photobook, maybe it’s because she isn’t a very popular at the moment and publisher doesn’t want to throw money for decent limited edition bonuses. However I have received a very nice poster together with first press edition.

Catalog No.: SRCL-7968

The second Nogizaka46 single “Oide Shampoo”, Type B. I started to like Nogizaka46 started from this one single, so I don’t have the first one and won’t get it.

I hoped for another member photo, whatever. I don’t know her. Did I see her at all in the PVs or TV lives? I have to rewatch.

Leo Ieiri blu-ray

Several hours ago CDJapan.co.jp has added new items: Leo Ieiri’s blu-ray and dvd. There is no addition info. I don’t know what it is, but I think it will be a live performance. Maybe it is her birthday concert. In any case I want to preorder it know not knowing what it is. Leo is the best newcomer in 2012 by my opinion. I love her music very much, she has a great voice and she is a good songwriter.

UPD. CDjapan added the description for this items: “First video product from Leo Ieiri mainly features her concert held at Umeda Club Quattro in Osaka plus digests of her one-man concerts held in various regions. Also contains rehearsal footage, backstage footage, documentary on the 1st one-man tour, and more. Contains a total of 120-minute contents (subject to change).

SCANDAL – Queens are trumps (unboxing)

Release Date: 2012/09/26
Catalog No.: ESCL-3971
Number of discs: 1
Available at cdjapan.co.jp

I think the latest SCANDAL album “Queens are trumps -Kirifuda wa Queen-“ is the best one. Their first albums weren’t appealing to me. I don’t like school girls band SCANDAL, but when they changed their style their music got much better as they dropped off a school uniform.

SCANDAL - Queens are trumps

The first dancing PV of SCANDAL. This song is included in this album.

I have a limited edition with a photobook. This is how a photobook should be done, A4 size with a hardback binding. However there is one week point, the photobook is glued only with the first page to the cover. I had to be careful while browsing photos.

AKB48 Stage albums

I want to buy all AKB48 stage albums that were announced a month ago. There are only 20 of them. If I’ll try to buy all of them at once it will be too much for me. I decided to order them each month in small batches.

The first stage albums that I have ordered are: Team A 5th stage, Team B 4th stage and two Team K stages, 4th and 6th.

Release Date: 2012/11/21
Catalog No.: SRCL-8182
Number of discs: 2

Hikarumonotachi is the 3rd Mayuyu single. I like it much more than her previous two singles. This is also her most successful single up to date. It has a great B-side title and a somewhat nice A-side. B-side song is the main theme song for and anime movie “Nerawareta Gakuen.
