Sexy Zone Channel 2014.06.18 Review

page Fishing. To my mind, fishing is a lot like golf – possibly a fun activity in certain contexts, but I can’t imagine how watching people do it could be entertaining. Not unless we’re talking about shell fishing or anything involving the fishermen actually getting into the water. In this episode of Sexy Zone Channel, the members of SZ will attempt to prove me wrong. Though honestly, if I find this entertaining, it’s probably more of an indication how much of a fan of the group I am.

They don’t initially know where they are, except the very visible proximity of Mt. Fuji sort of narrows things down to Yamanashi prefecture. Their first guess is that they’re going to do some climbing/hiking, possibly of the highlands near Mt. Fuji to get a good view, but that would probably take too long.

resort business plan Of course, the staff likes to play little games with the boys, and here they’re kept guessing when the staff knows very well that they’ll come nowhere near the right answer. It’s a shame, because the stuff the SZ members propose is much more interesting than fishing. The same was true of the previous episode as well. Shori-kun insists that it must be something active (probably given their food fest in the last episode).

final term past papers of eco401 I wasn’t as excited about watching this episode of Sexy Zone Channel as most of the others because it’s another food episode, and you know how I think they’re the bane of variety shows, hence the delay in the review. Now I have faith in SZ that they’ll somehow manage to make it interesting, but while there was an excuse for the previous food episode (the celebration of three birthdays), there’s nothing like that this time, and I really don’t want there to be a food hour every fourth episode or so.

Shounen Club 2014.06.11 Review

Posted on: June 16th, 2014 by tylerraiz 1 Comment

The second Shounen Club (ザ少年倶楽部) of June started with a lot of guitarists on stage – the SC band plus a few. Usually when they decide to have the instrumentalists on Shounen Club, we see a lot of them, and I hope that will be the case here.

get The three elder members of Sexy Zone – Nakajima Kento, Kikuchi Fuma, and Sato Shori – greeted the audience and then started singing “Thank You” with a whole host of juniors also singing.

http://ducasco.gr/writing-a-comparative-essay/ writing a comparative essay Tough to name all of them. Let’s see . . . there was Yasui Kentaro, Ishigaki Daisuke, Goto Hiromi, Ogawa Yuu, Jinguji Yuta, Kobayashi Mizuki, Sanada Yuma, Jesse, and Hagiya Keigo. Oh, and also two other non-juniors – Johnny’s WEST’s Hamada Takahiro-kun and Kamiyama Tomohiro-kun showing that they really could be part of a SHARK-like group. The screencaps came out pretty fuzzy, so I suggest just watching this opening – it’s going to be one of the highlights. Oh, and grab a good quality version of it – too many people on stage for anything less.

Well, assuming we’re talking about the form of music rather than stones (of the non-rolling variety), I think my hope that we’ll see more of the band will be fulfilled.

critical thinking assignments I don’t know how the weather is in Japan, but it’s blistering hot here, so will Shounen Club (ザ少年倶楽部) bring on some summer vibes or will we have to wait until we get deeper into the season?

watch The first song was promising – KinKi Kids’ “Flower”. Sexy Zone kicked it off with all the familiar juniors close behind.

Weekly Oricon Rankings (Ending 06-02)

Posted on: June 4th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

http://www.hypehoodie.com/good-creative-writing-prompts/ good creative writing prompts The top single for the past week was Arashi’s “Dare mo Shiranai”, which sold a relatively weak 461,622 copies. The weak number was not surprising at all, though, since this single and the previous release followed the same pattern as “Face Down” and “Your Eyes” in Spring of 2012.

get AKB48’s “Labrador Retriever” took #2, selling 62,802 copies to bring its total to 1,725,067 in its second week. This is a pretty normal AKB second week in terms of percentage of first week sales.

http://www.atelierfotografico.eu/dissertation-writing-help/ dissertation writing help μ’s sure has a quick release schedule. They’ve got a new one – “Yume no Tobira” – out now, and it sold 40,710 copies at #3.

Economics Of Education Phd Thesis At #4, “FINAL DANCE/nerve” from BiS saw 33,706 copies sold.

Homework Help English Essay “ADRENALINE” from BEAST was right behind with 32,023.

http://apt-online.ch/?dissertation-abstracts-online-ondisc And the last of the notable new releases was “Kyupi” from Idoling!!!, which took #6 by selling 27,243.

get Speaking of the proximity between the two Arashi releases, “GUTS!” was hanging out at #13 in its fifth week, selling 8,832 copies for a running total of 577,909.

I didn’t think I’d have to mention it, but here we go: King Cream Soda’s “Geragerapo no Uta” actually broke the 50k mark in its fifth week, taking #17 with 4,655 copies sold to push its total to 53,297.

Sexy Zone’s “King & Queen & Joker” stayed in the top 30, taking #21 by adding 3,866 in sales for a three-week total of 165,306.

On the album side, the Frozen soundtrack was denied the top spot again. This time, it was aiko’s “Awa no Youna Ai Datta” that took #1, selling 82,051 copies.

That left the Frozen soundtrack at #2 with a still-impressive 61,027 copies sold and a sixteen-week total of 713,656. I wonder if we’ll see it hit the million mark before leaving the top 10.

Shiina Ringo-san’s “Gyakuyunyu ~Kowankyoku~” took #3, selling 31,045.

Hirai Ken-san was right behind at #4. His “Ken’s Bar III” sold 30,340.

Michael Jackson’s second posthumous compilation album “Xscape” was at #8, selling 14,235 in its third week to bring its total to 52,392.

Last but not least, Inaba Koshi-san’s “Singing Bird” – last week’s number one – was at #10 this week, selling a respectable 12,258 to get its two-week total to 90,454.

Sexy Zone Channel 2014.05.21 Review

Posted on: June 1st, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

This episode of Sexy Zone Channel starts at 8:40 a.m., so the guys look a bit more awake than they did last time, and they’ve apparently been preparing for the start of the show by writing the title of it as well as their names on the whiteboard. It’s a fair point: there’s never been a proper title sequence introducing the show and the members of Sexy Zone, has there? I actually like that aspect of the show, since it feels like the director is in a hurry to get to the action and there’s a lot of video to show viewers (which there always seems to be).

After the usual funny banter between the members and the staff, they got down to business. They seem to know it’s going to be more physically demanding this time after the DVD/manga hunt last time, though Kento-kun maintains a stubborn hope that there’s yakitori (grilled chicken) involved.

The challenge for the day was actually the sport squash, which is predictably difficult to render into Japanese (it ends up as sukasshu, which is not even close).


Weekly Oricon Rankings (Ending 05-25)

Posted on: May 28th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

The top single for the past week was, of course, AKB48’s “Labrador Retriever”, which sold 1,662,265 copies. That’s roughly the standard number for an AKB single containing election voting tickets.

At a very, very distant #2, Nishino Kana-san’s “We Don’t Stop” sold 20,779 copies.

TOKIO’s “LOVE, HOLIDAY” took #4, selling 17,074.

Taking #7 in its second week, “King & Queen & Joker” from Sexy Zone sold 10,854 to boost its total to 161,440. That’s a bit on the weak side compared to first week sales, but not bad considering their other recent singles.

At #9, Arashi’s “GUTS!” saw 9,909 copies sold this week to bring its four-week total to 569,077.

Johnny’s WEST’s “Ee ja nai ka” actually gained a few spots in its sixth week, ending up right behind Arashi at #10, selling 9,596 to get its total to 300,542 after five weeks.

That wasn’t the most spectacular rise, though. Nakayama Yuma-kun must have had something going on, because his “High Five” went from #150 to #17 in its eighth week, tacking on 6,234 to its total to finally cross the 50k mark. Its total is now 52,372.

“Mirai to wa?” from SKE48 had a similar rise – giong from #121 to #20 by selling 5,516 so that it could finally cross 500k – it now boasts a ten week total of 502,202 copies sold.

Rounding out the singles, week three of sales for Momoiro Clover Z’s “Naite mo Iin da yo” took it to #30 with 3,707 copies sold and a total of 79,637.
