Posted on: February 28th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

http://edificiosnakawe.com/college-essays-on-death/ college essays on death This Himitsu no Arashi-chan (ひみつの嵐ちゃん) has a share house segment and mannequin must-item segment, both hosted by Sakurai-san and Ninomiya-kun. As they enter, they complain about how long they had to wait on standby before being cleared to step onto the set.

Writing Report To make up for the long wait, the director sends the guest to the door immediately – no light banter between the two hosts this time.

Weekly Oricon Rankings (Ending 02-24)

Posted on: February 27th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

http://csharpbuddy.com/teaching-annotated-bibliography/ teaching annotated bibliography The past week’s number one single was AKB48’s “So long!”, with 1,035,986 copies sold in its first week. At this rate, they might be saying “so long!” to those seven-digit first week sales. Let’s see if they get a second wind and figure out how to revive the brand.

go here E-girls were at number two, with “The Never Ending Story” selling 40,055 copies.

go At #4 was Kis-My-Ft2’s “My Resistance -Tashikana Mono-/Unmei Girl”, adding 27,063 in its second week for a total of 343,376. This is a bit weak, but it comes on the back of spectacular first week sales.

follow site SKE48’s “Choco no Dorei” was at #8 in its fourth week, tacking on 18,600 to bring its total to 623,986. It would be stunning to see a crossover, with this single holding stronger in the standings than “So long!” in the long run. That’s highly improbable, though.

thesis for persuasive essay Kashiwagi Yuki-san got #16 as “Short Cake” topped 121,352 copies sold in three weeks.

http://kilanigroup.net/?p=best-essay-writing-service-in-us Right behind her, “Animals” by Generations from EXILE TRIBE now has a four-week total of 83,100.

see KAT-TUN’s “Expose” took #23 in its third week, reaching a total of 168,973 copies sold.

http://helivac.co.za/?p=phd-paper Behind her, “Oh! My! Goodness!” from V6 sold 53,730 copies.

view One Direction stayed in the top 10, taking #8 with sales of “Take Me Home” just short of 200k – boasting a fifteen-week total of 199,820.

Drama Ratings Update – to Feb 24th

Posted on: February 27th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

go to link Just like last week, there was one very definite story in the ratings – one series that definitely hasn’t settled down. I’ll leave you to take a look, and I’ll discuss it under the cut. There were other interesting fluctuations (especially Nobunaga no Chef), but they aren’t quite outside the standard range for those dramas.

The ratings presented here are from much more complete articles on TokyoHive – the latest one of which is available here. Since I’m only interested in tracking a few dramas, this article serves to summarize those numbers.

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou Ep 03 Review

Posted on: February 26th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

A suspicious man walks into Shinokawa Shioriko (Gouriki Ayame)’s bookstore at the start of this episode of Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou (ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖 – Biblia Rare Books Hall Case Files). He seems wary of the police as he approaches the shop, and he’s also in a rush.

Biblia Koshodo no Jiken Techou Ep 03 001Biblia Koshodo no Jiken Techou Ep 03 002

He wants to sell a book, but can’t wait for them to appraise it and pay him – saying instead that he’s come back tomorrow before rushing out.

He book he entrusts into their care is one on formal logic – should be right up Shinokawa’s alley.

VS Arashi 2013.02.21 Review

Posted on: February 25th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

VS Arashi (VS 嵐 ) is a game show hosted by the idol group Arashi, who compete against a different team of entertainers every week. Every so often (and a lot more often since the start of 2013), though, those entertainers are actually athletes, as they are in this episode. Before we get to them, though, Sakurai-san mentions that they’ll be doing MMDA on March 7th – that’s Most Most Dame (Useless) Arashi. They’re going to punish the member who was the most counterproductive through the past year. Last year, it was Sakurai-san himself, so perhaps he’s mentioning it with confidence – or hope – that they won’t pick him again.

Matsumoto-kun thinks that Ohno-san is the most obvious choice, but I didn’t catch the reasoning. Maybe MatsuJun is just trying to deflect blame from himself.

I also didn’t quite understand Ohno’s response, but it had Sakurai-san saying “kakkoii!” (Cool!)

J’J – Takizawa Hideaki in South America 2013.02.18 Review

Posted on: February 25th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

So now we’re officially in the second part of “Takizawa Hideaki‘s Journey Cutting Through 4800km of South America” (滝沢秀明 南米縦断4800キロの旅) – the Peruvian portion. We last left Tackey-san crossing the border between Chile and Peru at night.

He quickly spots a major city, with its lights gleaming on the horizon. The relief in his voice is real – seeing that city means that he won’t have to camp in his tent for the night. Not only will he be able to get a bed, but also a decent meal. I suspect that he’s often driven long into the night hoping to spot some kind of inn.

This city is Tacna, and has a population of roughly 280,000.

Kodomo Keishi Ep 03 Review

Posted on: February 24th, 2013 by tylerraiz No Comments

This episode of Kodomo Keishi (コドモ警視) is a bit different. It starts off with one of the teachers encountering something supernatural – or at least something that seems supernatural – while wandering in the school at night.

I’m not sure what he called it when he shouted – either fireball or will-o’-the-wisp. I had a copy with subtitles in Chinese, and they had the kanji for will-o’-the-wisp (鬼火 – onibi) even though I thought I heard “hidama” (火玉 – fireball). I’ll go with will-o’-the-wisp from here on.

Anyway, as he flees, we see a girl’s smile:

Kodomo Keishi Ep 03 004

 

Is this just a prank, or something more sinister?

The next day, police superintendent Hazama Seishiro (Marius Yo) – a 36 year-old police investigator who was turned into a child by a gas unleashed by terrorists – is once again approached by Kitabayashi Yumi (Minamino Saki), who clearly has a thing for him.
