Just found this group out the other day, it seems they take the theme of the flight attendant (stating the obvious), they've got some pretty good songs... however they've only released one single called "Let It Go!!" and their second get's released on the 14th (of this month) which is called "ハレルヤ" ("Hallelujah"). This group might just become my favourite, just waiting for an album!  :P

I recommend these songs (previews only unfortunately):

ぱすぽ☆ 『Girls Pajama Party』 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qn96xuH3aw#)

ぱすぽ☆ 『Let it Go!!』 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3b3NxzunU9w#)

ぱすぽ☆ 『Go On A Highway』 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmxJbKpBM-4#)


If anyone knows any more about this group please feel free to post about it!  :twothumbs

(I haven't a clue why the picture looks like this, they thought it was a good idea for their website...)
They clearly screwed up the re-sizing of the picture, but I'm sure they'll fix it. Koharu's and Erika's new blog banner was the same for a while XD

Anyway, this group sounds really interesting, and I like the look of the girls. Keeping an eye out for them too!

They also had special editions of Let It Go! which had individual members on the artwork cover, but I can't find any on YJA and they're all sold out here (http://www.fandamon.com/?mode=cate&cbid=666701&csid=0).

I might purchase the album when it goes on sale on cdjapan, I could order it from HMV but I've heard their shipping is over-priced not to mention customs.

After seeing their performance at Tokyo Idol Festival, they've moved up to maybe my 4th or 5th favorite idol group.

Is it just me or do none of the pictures in the first post not show up any more?

Some guy on the street gave me one of their fliers in Osaka this summer.

Post by: mixedmedia on November 22, 2010, 12:40:30 AM
Thanks! I was wondering if my netbook couldn't handle it or something.  Only problem now is megane girl isn't wearing them in her profile picture so I still have no idea which one she is.

So far, I can probably only pick out Anzai and Sakuma if I were to see all the girls together.

checking the website i found that this agency http://platinumpro.syncl.jp/ (http://platinumpro.syncl.jp/) is basically the same one that passpo but for some reason they work separated in platinum passport agency http://p-pp.co.jp/ (http://p-pp.co.jp/) ... must be something similar to UFA and H!P (i guess lol)


mmm platinum agency is bigger that you thing, they have actors, models and even people in sports

I wish it would come up on Yesasia though, I could do with some free shipping  :nervous

I sent an enquiry to YesAsia yesterday, asking if they could stock the Passpo album and they emailed me back today that both versions are now listed. :twothumbs

Awesome, thanks!  :cow:

As for downloads, here's what I have:

Let it Go!! - http://www.mediafire.com/?btftf1m5xq1o74f (http://www.mediafire.com/?btftf1m5xq1o74f) (Ripped from my copy <3)

and there are links to GPP/Pretty Lie/Go on a Highway here - http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-akihabaras-other-pop-group/ (http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-akihabaras-other-pop-group/) but they all seem to be live versions. Seeing as how sendspace links don't tend to last all that long, I reup'd them on mediafire:

Pretty Lie - http://www.mediafire.com/?mw52cwx6kqsi46j (http://www.mediafire.com/?mw52cwx6kqsi46j)

but yes, all credit to qwiksXnd @ Nihongogo for those  :)

I had a go at working out the lyrics for Pretty Lie too, since it's by ear (apart from the second chorus, I managed to find the kana for that somehow xD; ) it's definitely not accurate, but Pretty Lie is my favourite song by them and I wanted to sing along <3

Pretty Lie

Yeah, the mp3's I uploaded are the actual single versions. Thanks for the credit  :)

Hehe, I didn't realize there was another PASSPO thread. I thought my thread at nihongogo was the only overseas one, which I thought was really sad because they are so awesome.

Here's my collection:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/DSC01110500.jpg)

That giant dvd case is their stage play, which also came with a Sakura Color single. I'm not entirely sure what the play is about so things I am guessing on will have a (?) after them. The play takes place in high school and all of the girls (who are mostly strangers to each other) join the same club (?, the play takes place in a classroom but since they establish early on that they are all in different grades, I'm assuming it's a club).  The central theme of the play was high school friendship (at one point in the play Mio writes the character for "friend" on a chalkboard and it is basically in the background the entire time after that point). The climax of the play involves them having to make an important decision by a vote (and unfortunately I'm not exactly what they are voting on, but one of the girls has to leave). The vote ends without anything being settled because each girl gets one vote. At the end Mio has the courage to break the stalemate and votes herself out. I found a review of the play and google translated it, and evidently the vote was something like the girl had to drop put of school (lol, yeah I'm confused too).

The play was basically a way for the group to showcase their quirky personalities and acting skillz. The girls are pretty good actors too, particularly Mio, Sako, Kaho, Naomi, Shiori, and Makoto. For the girls I didn't mention, I think it was hard for them to stand out because of the role they had. Anna played a shy girl and Natsumi's character was just freakin weird, she was kind of hilarious though. I always considered her the "shy" one, so the role was a total departure for her. Here's some pics of their play:

I rewrote the above because I re-watched it and got a little better understanding of what it was about.

^ Nice pics. Mio and Anna always seem to be together. I thought this pic of them from Mio's blog was cool. They had their 1 year anniversary last week, and for their hard work they got these awesome jackets.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_PASSPOaniversaryjackets.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=PASSPOaniversaryjackets.jpg)

I read a blog entry about their anniversary show at http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/%E3%81%B1%E3%81%99%E3%81%BD%E2%98%86-passpo-1123-1-year-anniversary-show-part-1/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/%E3%81%B1%E3%81%99%E3%81%BD%E2%98%86-passpo-1123-1-year-anniversary-show-part-1/) and they broadcasted the live on ustream. I had no idea... we could have seen the show  :cry:

On a positive note, since they have their first album coming out in a few days:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/MioFiles.jpg)

I was kind of bored today... so I made this pic of what a PASSPO theater could look like (and it wouldn't have pillars of death like the AKB theater):

I'm not really sure what the situation is with their live shows tbh. A lot of the vids they have on their youtube channel they're definitely playing on the same stage. But I can't find any theater info or address at their website. I guess I was expecting something like on the AKB website, where they have a ticket info section that has a map and address of the theater. They also have their schedule posted at their blog and it seems the venue is continually changing.

Here's a listing of all of their live shows and the venue they played at:
http://passpo.jp/biography.html (http://passpo.jp/biography.html)

Lol, I remember when all of the members were blogging about their cafe, so awesome. I think the cafe was open for a while though. I remember them writing about it back in October and just last week I saw a pic of the cafe in one of their blogs. I was surprised when I saw it because it made it seem like it was still open. One of them mentioned the interactive device they in the cafe that played videos and music and they thought it was the coolest thing ever:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/o0240032010774781171.jpg)

And for no particular reason here's a pic of Saco serving a donut!
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/o0240032010774199384.jpg)

Great job on the banners. When I first saw them I was like "Whoa, a PASSPO banner!!" and then I went to another page and there was another one of them. I stupidly thought that somehow the website knew I liked them so it triggered a flood of PASSPO banners.

Edit:
(http://img258.imagevenue.com/loc403/th_13481_g_122_403lo.jpg) (http://img258.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=13481_g_122_403lo.jpg)

I just looked closer at the pic... that donut is from Doughnut Plant, lol. Doughnut Plant is really popular in New York City. I'm from L.A. but I went there when I visited this summer. It looks like there's a doughnut plant in Tokyo now.  It shows that their cafe was pretty high class... as far as donuts go I mean.

TAKE*OFF safely landed in my mailbox. Thanks mr. mail delivery guy! There are a lot of cute photos in the booklet (I actually recognized a few pics their blogs). There's only one new song on the CD, BREAK OUT!!, but it rocks - literally and figuratively. There are several tracks that were previously unreleased, but they're not technically "new". Their music is getting progressively better, which is a great sign (I'd compare it to the situation with Idoling!!!, i.e. their new music is way better than their early stuff). Looking at the liner notes, I thought it was interesting that GPP, Pretty Lie, and BREAK OUT!! (which I think are their best songs) are all written by westerners (Tom Diekmeier, Fredrik Thomander, Nina Ossoff, amongst others). Seemed strangely coincidental.

Four PVs are included in the DVD as well as a short behind-the-scenes video:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_gpp325.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=gpp325.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_letitgo4.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=letitgo4.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_hallelujah1-1.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=hallelujah1-1.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_Sakura1.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=Sakura1.jpg)
GPP                                   Let It Go!!                         Hallelujah                         Sakura Colors

Let It Go!! has some animated scenes in it, which I think are from the anime they released a few months ago:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_200.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=200.jpg)

I have no idea what their anime is about, but the girls do the voice work. I thought this pic from the video was kinda... interesting:

Seems to be working now, but you have to wait a little while between downloads otherwise the error appears or the download slows to a crawl.  I'm guessing it's just something sendspace does for non paying downloaders.

There's also are a few new items at their online store:

Airplane Stickers, Cloud Sitckers, towel, and scarf. I'm thinking of getting the stickers, mainly to put on my snowboard.

I just recently saw this video, they got some TV exposure  :) (video is from October when they released Pretty Lie, GPP, and Go on a Highway).

EDIT: I've decided my favourite member is Natsumi Iwamura  :wub:

Their wiki was updated and TAKE*OFF was the 168th ranked cd during it's release week. :cry: Well, I guess if I was in Japan I would buy their cd's at their shows since you get a 2-shot/handshake and I don't know if Oricon tracks those sales. I wonder if they are going to try to get picked up by a major label, that's probably their only shot at getting significant sales. But then that risks them changing their image/concept (like what happened to SDN48). Maybe DefStar can sign them to make up for losing AKB. Personally I'd want Pony Canyon so they can collaborate with Idoling!!!.

I've been forced to become a pirate because of yesasia and their.com stock issues, this is becoming a big joke!

If you are still interested, CDJapan and HMV have them in stock. If you order from HMV it comes with a bonus pic (although this may have been a pre-order bonus only).

They had some promotional tie-in with HMV, and performed at one of their stores. Here's some pics of them wearing HMV shirts.

I like how Kaho misspelled her nickname.

Nice poll. I voted for Sako, but I like Kaho and Sako equally. Sako is kind of the Konkon of the group so I voted for her.

I forgot one of their gimmicks is color-coding and just realized that the outfits they wore in GPP match up with their assigned colors. I just thought they brought their pj's from home XD. Or was this obvious :P The video shurastriker posted also reminded me about the color coding.

Passpo, as well as a few other idols (Idol College, Kotone Mai, Mizca, the host was Noto Arisa- I'll find a full list later but those were the only ones I saw. I came in late) on a Ustream live last night. They performed Let it Go!!, Break Out, Pretty Lie, GPP, Go on a Highway, Muteki Girl, La La La Love Train (which really got the crowd going!) I tried to record it using Camstudio, but I didn't realize the audio wasn't recording ;-; and it was a really good and energetic live too (but it's Passpo so that's a given ;D)

Is there a way to keep track of when they'll be on ustream? I think this was their third concert they've had broadcast - they did their 1 year anniversary, EXTRAVE concert, and now this one. Missed them all of course  XD. I followed their official channel, but I guess that doesn't help when the show is being broadcast on a different channel.

I'm not sure, I only found it by chance, I had no idea if Passpo had even been on yet by the time I tuned in so I was lucky to catch them on (they were the last act). I just checked their blog and as far as Google Translate can tell me they didn't mention it was going to be on Ustream at all. I found where it was on though Cheer-Music Event (http://www.cheer-music.net/event/). On their Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cheer-music-event#) they have clips from Kotone Mai and Doki Doki Dream Campus' performances so hopefully a Passpo one will pop up soon? <3

PASSPO recently started their own live internet show. The show airs on Thursday at 7PM Japan time (U.S. time would be 2AM PST and 5AM EST, Iceland time 10AM)  In other words it's on right this second.

http://www.odoroku.tv/idol/passpo/index.html (http://www.odoroku.tv/idol/passpo/index.html)

Ok it just finished... I'll write a little bit about what the show is about for those that missed it. The show follows the basic internet radio show format: the girls sit at a table, one of them has a laptop, and they chat about random stuff (in this ep it was Ai, Mio, Kaho, Natsumi, and Shiori. It looks like they rotate 5 members each week). They start off with a quick intro/MC and then each girls talks about something they find interesting (Mio talked about ninjas,  Kaho fashion (I think), and I uh forgot what Shiori and Natsumi talked about (hehe, yeah this is the worst write-up ever). Then they answered random questions that were emailed to them. I wasn't able to really watch it closely since I was simultaneously trying to study for an exam tomorrow, but it was entertaining. It's basically your typical internet radio show... just with the PASSPO magic ™ all the kids love.

Hype! Strangely I'm more interested in their new outfits than the new songs. Probably because I really don't like their current look - they don't really match their concept and actually look uncomfortable to wear. Their original outfits were perfect so I'm hoping for a remix like:

PASSPO major debut and... ARRIVING TO USA?
http://www.tokyograph.com/news/id-7385 (http://www.tokyograph.com/news/id-7385)

The 10-member idol unit PASSPO☆ held an event on Sunday to commemorate their upcoming major label debut. The cabin attendant-themed group will release a single called "Shoujo Hikou" on April 6 under the Universal J record label.

In addition to the single, PASSPO☆ announced that they will do a world tour later this year that includes the U.S. and some Asian countries.

Leader Ai Negishi (18) remarked that they hope to one day share the same stage as Korean group Shoujo Jidai, who are also signed with Universal.

The group started in January 2009 and has so far released four singles and one album. Their travel theme extends to their live events, and they have introduced a passport system through which fans can earn "mileage points" for participating in events.

also new costumes are... dresses :Y
(http://i.imgur.com/g52Xt.jpg)

still no idea why only 8 on stage but i don't see it as a major issue



edit: i just realized that Kikka is on the same label... wonder if both acts are going to perform together

they're going far then, that's cool, even though UK will probably not be on the tour list....

EDIT: I was going to say "it's pretty crazy they're going on a world tour when there are idol groups like Idoling!!! that have never done a concert outside japan (as I'm aware of) and have been around for much longer" I suppose the answer to that is 'Universal Music' :lol:

http://www.universal-music.co.jp/universalj/artist/passpo/ (http://www.universal-music.co.jp/universalj/artist/passpo/)

So happy for them. They outgrew being an indie group, they're just too good not to have the ability to compete with the major label groups.  Really, really wish it wasn't with Universal though. Although I think Universal J is different from Universal (U Muisc Japan) - seems like a mid-major (which can be a good thing for a group like PASSPO). Hopefully this means they'l have the ability to book larger venues, get some tv exposure, and release better PVs/stage dvds, while retaining creative control. Changes can come with joining a major though. I just hope their concept remains and their lineup stays the same.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/letitgo2-1.jpg)

Confirmation they'll be playing in L.A! (jk) Morning Musume, AKB, and Mano Erina did, I would freakin love if PASSPO played at AX. Hopefully there is more info about their "world" tour soon.

New outfits:

3. 少女飛行 - instrumental

"PASSPO - 'We're going to hijack the world!' "
Lol, I love when they use the word "hijack"... whenever they get invited to do a show, they say they are "hijacking" the stage.

The big announcement show had over 1,000 people attend! I read at their blog that when they sold out the tickets they allowed people to watch for free from the back.

And "United States" = Los Angeles and New York City

And "Asia" probably = Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

It's unfortunate for fans in other parts of the world, but it's great j-pop groups are finally seeing the opportunities in the international market. (I grudgingly give credit to AKB for starting the trend). Outside of going to Hawaii, it took MM forever to go to the U.S.

Unlike a lot of the new idol groups that have popped up in the past few years, I think Passpo's music is actually pretty good! :lol: I love that they have a pop/rock sound.

edit: in case you are missing it... passpo i also on twitter http://twitter.com/passpo_staff (http://twitter.com/passpo_staff)



Oh yeah, shura, that pic of the 8 girls in dresses is actually the group Pre-dia  :thumbup. They are another group produced by platinum, so they do shows with PASSPO occasionally.

Today their blog announced their single has a new release date of May 4. I thought something like that would happen when Universal delayed SDN48's single to 4/6. It didn't make sense for three of Universal's girl groups to release a single on the same day.

I'm glad my doomsday fear that they would bomb and get immediately dropped from their label didn't happen.  8)

I've been staying up watching their online show (which changed time slots a few weeks ago from Thursdays at 7PM to Wednesday at 7, Japan time) and my new favorite is Makoto. I feel lame that my favorite is one of the popular members, but she's strangely hilarious.

I can upload in 320 when my class is over. Jpopsuki has it in 192 for those with less discriminating ears.

I don't know where to upload though. When I uploaded TAKE*OFF some didn't like my choice of server.

Anyone else watch their live?

Seriously one of the best concerts ever. 86 minutes of all-out, non-stop craziness!

"They're the most high energy pop group of all time!!" - some random guy

Every single one of their songs + encore of *a new song* called ViVi Natsu + 2nd encore of Shojo Hiko = PASSPOgasm.

(* about the new song, the word ViVi is spelled like the j-fashion magazine ViVi, so I wonder if there is a tie-in.)

D-lugging... without any injuries.

Near the end a "passenger" at the front (the "first class" section) started sending his creepy wota vibes to Mio. It was simultaneously hilarious and disturbing.

AKB's next single also comes out on the 24th  ;). While there will be a huge amount of people in record stores that day, unfortunately I don't see it benefiting PASSPO. I was an AKB fan for a while, and if there is one thing I noticed about the fan base: if they have extra money, they won't spend it on another group, they'd just buy a 10th copy of the AKB single.

An Aug 10 release would avoid all of the main girl groups.

【収録内容】
M-1「ViVi夏」
M-2「じゃあね…」
M-3「ROCK DA WEEK」
M-4「ViVi夏」(Off Vocal ver.)
※「ViVi夏」ミュージックビデオ収録(パソコンのみでの再生となります)
http://www.universal-music.co.jp/universalj/artist/passpo110130/ (http://www.universal-music.co.jp/universalj/artist/passpo110130/)

The single will include "ViVi Natsu" and two b-sides "Jaa ne..." and "ROCK DA WEEK", and ViVi Natsu PV. Versions A-J are the individual editions and Ver K is a limited edition with a handshake ticket.

In other news, Makoto blogged that they have a new costume, and the group will be on HEY!HEY!HEY! on July 4.

On my way to Japan Expo in Paris now, today is the PASSPO☆ showcase and signing session.  :w00t:
The signing session is by draw so I'm not sure yet to get in...  :sweatdrop:
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: SomethingWild on July 01, 2011, 11:44:21 AM
^Good luck!

The draw can be a total mess... Very limited amount of tickets, giving out the tickets DURING the actual concert of that group, etc  :banghead:

But hey, maybe they improved it this year or you'll get lucky  :) Looking forward to hearing your stories!

Just arrived back from an extremely exhausting day, went to X Japan concert in the evening as well, and practically rushed through Japan Expo today for the 1000say & PASSPO live (but I have Saturday and Sunday to actually enjoy it ;p).
I lost the draw for both signings (1000say & PASSPO... :shocked). I hate it that they actually changed it. In the first schedule it was on saturday and was first come first serve, so no draw from a box. But then they changed it to today and made it a draw...

Anyway, the showcase was great and there was quite a bit of wotaing going on, more than I expected  :D And one was actually allowed to take pics and record videos during the showcase. So I took plenty, but I haven't looked at the pics of today yet and it's 1am and tired :) Will update with pics one of the next days :)

then Sako wasn't there because they announced she couldn't make it for some reason that is not very relevant for us (but for her surely is)

Hatix, looking forward to the pics when you get a chance to share them. I want to see if they were rocking the new transparent uniforms (or are the see-through uniforms something I dreamed up).

And Sako is such a nerd  XD.

Last night I went to PASSPOs concert at Shibuya AX. Since I'm using my phone without the app I'm going to keep this short until later, but it was sooo awesome! There were a few surprises, first it was Natsumi's birthday (well that wasn't a surprise for a lot of people there since they were handing out orange glow sticks, but I didn't know), second they premiered their PV for ViVi Natsu and performed "rock da week" for the first time and that song... rocks!, but the best surprise was pre-dia opened the concert!!! Ok, I need to cut back on the !, but they blew me away. They are awesome live, and on a superficial level they are incredibly hot. I'm definately picking up their new single when it comes out in a few days. I love PASSPO and they are my favorite group ever but pre-dia stole the show IMO.

Unfortunately I didn't get to my hotel until around 2am so I was too wasted to see Afilia Saga this morning, but I'll try to see them tomorrow. In a few hours I'm going to Idolings concert, can't wait to see Rurika and Ami.

Anyway everyone buy pre-dia's single :)

At a press conference before the Shibuya AX concert PASSPO talked about wanting ViVi Natsu to be #1 for the week (8-24 is also the release date for akb48's single). One of the girls joked that if they don't get #1 Yuki will have to go bald. (I have a feeling the single will sell very well though)

I also bought pre-dia's two singles so I'll upload them when I get home next week. I'm going to there mini-live tomorrow before I attend Ayumi Hamasaki's concert.

Since the group has been insanely busy recently, this was her first update in six days, therefore it's the pic of the week by default. I love this photo though.

人生で初めて食べたタコスも美味しかったよー! (Google translated: I ate delicious tacos for the first time in my life as well!) So freakin cute @ the "tacos". If I ever eat tacos like that I'm going to call them Maco's.

The group is currently doing non-stop promotion for ViVi Natsu, the release is just a little more than two weeks away (remember to buy all 12 copies for a chance to win a golden ticket to the PASSPO Airplane Factory :thumbup). The past two Sundays they've performed three concerts each day, followed by handshake events, face painting and food-fights. They're also doing a lot of store appearances at TSUTAYA, leading up to the single's release. I like how they are going all-out to try to prevent Yuki from going bald.

I don't want to jinx it, but I really hope they get invited to some of the music shows so they can appear with AKB. I want to see good old fashioned idol warfare.

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on August 29, 2011, 10:00:51 PM
They don't have their own theater, they play at different venues and clubs. Lately they have been trying to expand from just being a Tokyo-centric group and have been doing concerts/events in Nagoya and Osaka.

As you mentioned, they do a lot of live shows. They number their concerts (aka "Flights") and kept a list of them from Flight #1 (09/11/17) to Flight #108 (10/12/24). In about 13 months they did 108 concerts. It's no longer updated, but you can check out the list here: http://passpo.jp/biography.html (http://passpo.jp/biography.html)

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_PASSPOflightboardingticketa.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=PASSPOflightboardingticketa.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_PASSPOflightboardingticketd.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=PASSPOflightboardingticketd.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_PASSPOflightboardingticketc.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=PASSPOflightboardingticketc.jpg)
This is what their concert tickets look like. I think they reset the Flight # count when the new year started.

This month on the weekends they have been doing 3 concerts a day, and during the week they've been doing store appearances at HMV and Tsutaya. This may have contributed to one of the members (Kaho) getting really sick and missing a whole week of activities. After TIF ended a lot of the members have been blogging about how busy this month has been for them, and you can tell they're relieved that they can finally relax a little.

Unfortunately I think you have to buy the ticket directly at the concert venue if you want one of the cool ones. I bought my ticket from a reseller and it looked like ^. Practically all concert tickets in Japan look similar to that.

Wow, Jealousy! Yeah, I wanna one too! I'm planning go to Japan this Nov actually, and I'm locked on their 11/19 ワンマン@新宿BLAZE, but I even don't know how to buy the ticket :banghead: Is it buy from the concert venue? Is it still possible to buy ticket on concert that day? Can you give me further details? Thanks in advance!

edit: Finally, I found the answer for myselt :banghead: It seems can buy the ticket via eplus, pia and even in convenience store XD

Post by: qwiksXnd on August 31, 2011, 09:11:36 PM
^ Based on singles, they're the #1 new-gen™ group. They are pretty close to Idoling. It's a hard comparison, both Shojo Hiko and ViVi Natsu have outsold every Idoling single with the exception of Yarakai Heart, but Idoling is much more established. Not sure about MM. I think j-pop groups like Perfume are in a different category of pop, along with the k groups.

How to get tickets
When I was planning my trip I emailed the group's staff for advice on how to buy a ticket and they said that it is usually possible to buy the ticket at the venue on the day of the concert. While it was true that there were some tickets available that day, they were for the second floor, so it's not really a great option. I'm not going to Japan for second floor seats :P. I used this website to get my ticket:  http://www.fdjp.com/ (http://www.fdjp.com/)

I want to go back in either October or November. I'd prefer October, but it's Makoto's birthday in November and it would be cool to go to her concert. The 11/19 concert at Shinjuku BLAZE would definitely be her birthday concert (edit: it's Shiori and Sako's birthday in November too, forgot about them XD.)

You right! They are really hard to compare with Idoling!!, but as a new-gen group, I think they can already called succeed.
btw, passpo has been overtook all h!p groups, i know

As you mentioned, that live is "Mako-chan birthday's party", so I'm too confused the ticket will sold out quickly XD
I think get the ticket on the day of the concert is no guarantee ,so I willl try to buy it online first. Anyway, thanks for your info again! :jphip:

October is a good choice, It seems  they will release the 3rd single in late October :P December also a good option I think, i heard they will held Zepp Tour in the year end?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 01, 2011, 10:02:52 PM
I think it would be possible for you to buy a ticket, they won't sell out immediately. BLAZE has a capacity of 800 people, and they are doing two shows on 11/19 (13:00 and 18:30). Tickets go on sale usually 2-3 weeks before the date. The only problem is some of their shows go on sale 1-2 weeks early for fan club members (PAL☆). That could be a problem if the 11/19 concert is available to the fan club first.
At the Shibuya AX concert I attended, they announced they were doing the Zepp Tour in Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo. I don't know what the Zepp tour is though :?.

Yeah, it's too bad the online ticket sellers only accept JP credit cards. You pretty much need a Japanese friend you can ask to buy a ticket for you or you can use a buying service like fdjp (just email the website which ticket you want and what your budget is, and they will try to find a ticket for you). They accept paypal, so I think that is the best option.

^^ I don't think there are any concerts in HD (except for their 10,000Y DVD box set, which is also just segments of different concerts I think). There is footage on the 2010 TIF dvd, and they should have decent screen time on the upcoming 2011 TIF dvd. There are a lot of ustream captures on YouTube. You can download the Shimokita FM events they did at H!O (I've been seeding those concerts forever it seems). Outside of that though, I haven't come across any full concerts for download.

PASSPO News
They're debuting their next single at their 9/17 concert!
Only 10 members will be allowed to participate in this single, and it will be decided by jan-ken-pon. The song will also be a romantic ballad.

Pigmin, you should go to the 9/17 concert. You can also get a 2-shot with Makoto and Sako (it's somewhat rare that they do 2-shots at their concerts these days, handshakes are normal though).

^ Whoa, good find Shura! What the hell is that? And was that Akari, ex-member of Momoiro Clover at 0:55?

edit:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/cheerpasspo.jpg)
Cheerfu11y is a comedy produced by Universal, staring Kaho, Anna, Shiori, and Naomi (PASSPO), Akari (ex-Momoiro Clover), Yuu Kikkawa, and members of the Possible. The movie's plot involves 11 girls who accidentally break their school's statue (i.e. the decapitated arm in the trailer) and then enter a dance competition to win the prize money to pay for it. I like it! It looks better than the horror movies that most idols do.

Hehe, just a reference to AKB :). In that group only certain members can be in a single and sometimes it's decided by goofy shit like jan-ken-pon or fan voting.

The 10 member thing was sarcasm :( And it won't be a ballad either :lol:.

Hello. I was just joking about what it would be like if PASSPO's next single was set up like an AKB single (I guess what I wrote would only make sense to someone who knew both groups well :P).

PASSPO is a 10 member group and despite noticeable differences in talent level and popularity, all ten members are treated as equals and appear in every single. On the other hand in AKB48, only the top 13 or so (out of 48) get to participate in a single (and they are selected based on stuff like fan voting, jan-ken-pon, or just whoever management wants to push). Therefore my joke was that for this single only 10 members of PASSPO would get to participate, but of course there are only 10 members to begin with. I was also joking that their next song would be a ballad, but PASSPO doesn't do ballads (they only have one ballad, "Sakura Iro", and it is rarely sung in concert). Therefore it is highly unlikely that their next single will be a ballad.

I hope that answered your question :), although now that I've had to explain the joke twice I feel like a dork XD

Due to Sako's Blog, the next single title is "kisu=suki", i have no idea it's a ballad or not.....
Personally, i prefer ballad more than rock actually, so i hope this is a ballad.
I'm really like "Sakura Iro" and the Piano ver. of "Let it go", they're amazing!

PASSPO's movie High Tension ☆ Please was scheduled to come out in two weeks, but Universal Music decided to cancel the release. I was really looking forward to it *sigh*. The movie looked funny, well-made, and educational. Most importantly it was Mako-chan's first movie! :cry:

When the movie was being made they were always blogging about how much fun it was to make. It sucks that so few people got to watch it. The movie was screened only four times in one movie theater in Tokyo and now will never be seen or heard from ever again.

All we have are the trailer, the movie poster, and this really small pic.

We'll never know why Makoto is holding a machine gun and Sako was just a cardboard cut-out. And the movie poster was going to be a bonus item included with the first press. I really wanted that poster XD.

ps: guess who is missing
I guessed Kaho, what do I win? :P

That was the second of three concerts that had to do that day. And they had two concerts the day before. That's like a professional sports team playing five matches in two days. You can tell they were conserving energy because of that. I'm glad they are back to doing just two concerts a month, now they can go all out.

Are you still thinking about seeing them? I won't be able to go to Japan in October because of exams that week, so I'll have to go to the November 19 concert. They are also doing a show on November 5 at Universal Studios Japan with Idoling (and other groups). Although I love Idoling, I've already seen them twice, and would prefer a real PASSPO flight.

The Mecha-mecha special airs today in Japan. Pics from Mio and Makoto's blogs:

^Yeah, but i'm just in the planning stage, i  don't even get my passport yet(the real one, not passpo one) :banghead:
Question time again, how long does a live last? 1 hour? 1.5 or 2 hours? It's an important thing to me, because if it last too long, it will interupt my planning....
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 17, 2011, 09:29:28 PM
For a full concert about 1.5 hours or longer. They do 12-14 songs and then encores. There are also breaks where some of the members do their own thing, like the m&m's might dance to an anime song,  Kaho and Naomi might do an embarrassing rap, and Sako and Anna might do a dance also.

When I saw them they did 16 songs (14 songs + 1st encore + 2nd encore, they changed outfits for each encore) and it lasted more than 1.5 hours. Pre-dia was the opening act and they did 4 songs, which added about 25 minutes. Pre-dia opening is always an epic win. I think 1.5-2 hours is a good estimate. 

Then there is the handshake event that is optional and you can be waiting in line for 1-2 hours if you are at the end. Well, the line will probably be shorter for the November concert, since there is less capacity.

If you have to leave early to do something else, you can exit the venue at anytime, you just won't be able to return. You could come back for the handshake event though, since that is usually open to anyone as long as they have a ticket.

Hehe, Ninety-nine joked that Sako was the group's manager.

I thought the show was going to be an athletic competition, but the events were just running to a stick and sumo wrestling. I guess I had higher expectations from mecha-mecha.

PASSPO's specialty isn't variety shows. Personally I'm fine with that because variety shows suck, but if they are going to keep doing them, then they'll have to improve. Right now PASSPO is like Zangief from Street Fighter. They are hardcore and kick ass, but when Zangief goes on variety shows, he's awkward and out of his element.

There are subtle things they can do to improve, for instance Yuki was standing in the front during their intros. Yuki's a giant, and giants go in the back. She was covering up all of the other members. Makoto and Mio should be in the front since they are the face of the group and that allows the other members to be visible. 

I'll try to keep my opninons in check for the sumo event, since when it comes to PASSPO (and Shiori) I can be super-hardcore 8): I was surprised that Shiori lost the sumo competition to a 14 year old. And to a member of Super Girls at that. Whether it was staged or not, I didn't like that she let the girl push her down, even if she did start it. I know it's a silly show, but that pissed me off waaay more than it should have XD. And the sumo platform looked too slick, they needed to be on solid ground and take off their shoes. Shiori lost because she slipped/ rant.

qwiksXnd san, I can understand how you feel, with that many groups on at one time, it is hard for one group to get much attention, and even such details, as how you have the members line up, can give that extra edge. Not having devoted much time to PASSPO, their appearance in this show made me want to see more of them, because I thought they were interesting when they did get time. I am a big fan of Berryz Koubo, S/mileage, and I think the decision by the producers to make Momo the main attention girl of the H!P members probably makes sense, but I wish there had been a bit more time for some of the other members.
The big positive of this kind of show is that it advertises the fact that there a  lot of other talented groups and individuals other than AKB48. AKB48 is drawing a lot of new fans, but when they do want to learn more about the idol scene, there are lots of other groups out there....

anyways i can't believe that Anna couldn't make it :\ oh and that supergirl pushing shiori was so sad ;_; ... oh and idoling!!! declaring passpo as their rivals was kinda cool (not like BK that found their biggest rival in momoko)


ps: girls are winning fans in a good way (if that means something) but please 5 shows in 2 days was just mean (bad, manager, bad)

I think it can be complicated to watch TV shows like this because when your favorite groups are involved, you want them to be seen in a positive way, and sometimes it just doesn't work out. It's like, "Oh cool, my favorite group will be on TV with a bunch of other groups. Now all of the fans of those groups will see how great my favorite group is and they'll definitely be converted!" But then you read comments from those fans after the show and realize that they just weren't into your group, and it's because they were too busy being into theirs.

Four of my favorite groups were involved PASSPO, Idoling, Fudanjuku (although they were on the show as the much less cool Nakano Fujoshi Sisters) and SDN48. The only group that I like that was missing was Afilia Saga East. Even though a lot of my favorites were present, the whole time I was like "PASSPO KILL THEM ALL!" :twisted:. Jk, it wasn't exactly like that, but I was put in a position where I was rooting against some of my favorite groups, and I'm sure other fans of other group were in a similar position.

I'll paraphrase what I wrote on the Idoling board:
Tokyo Idol Festival is about portraying all idol groups in a positive way. The different groups get to interact and collaborate with other groups on stage, and they get to host their own events in a respectful way (there aren't any variety show "comedians" who think it's cool to embarrass and ridicule idols for cheap laughs). And because the event is so positive, the fans are much more open minded towards the groups they normally wouldn't have been exposed to.

On the other hand competitions on variety shows are unavoidably negative. The groups are pitted against each other in competitions that don't involve skill, idols are embarrassed by the hosts, and fans get defensive because we take our groups seriously. If your idol group does well it's like "That's right, this show just proved what I knew all along: we're the best!". If your group did poorly, "This show was biased. If this was a beauty contest or a singing competition we would have won easily". It just results in pointless negativity between fans.

I guess I'm just against idols competing with each other. I like it a lot more when they collaborate.

anyways i can't believe that Anna couldn't make it :\ oh and that supergirl pushing shiori was so sad ;_; ... oh and idoling!!! declaring passpo as their rivals was kinda cool (not like BK that found their biggest rival in momoko)

ps: girls are winning fans in a good way (if that means something) but please 5 shows in 2 days was just mean (bad, manager, bad)
Yeah, I was disappointed that Anna didn't make that jump. She is smart and athletic, she just went about it wrong. There is a technique that allows you to jump way higher, you just have to jump with your back to the bar and then bring up your legs. If you try to hurdle over it from the front, your leg is going to hit the bar every time. That's why the other girl won, she was the only one who did it correctly.

Yeah, I think they were pushed too hard and their schedule contributed to Kaho getting injured. Their next single comes out next month, they'll probably go easier on the promotion this time.

what i didn't like about the show waas the cast fo girls, they over exposed SDN as expected and ebisu muscats next to my s/mileage was a big no for me ;_; also i wonder if the sumo ring was very "solid" i think it hurted bad.... anyway i'm glad that ASE didn't participate, i don't think physical comedy fts them at all plus i doubt they are that "famous" compared to the other groups. oh and do you know why the ebisu muscats started to cry so much?

i was thinking if they split the girls in the cases of too thight schedules... but since is always better to perform with the full band then plz manager-san take more care fo the girls.

At last nights concert they debuted two new songs, Kisu=Suki and Hello.

oh and do you know why the ebisu muscats started to cry so much?
Crying is pretty much a guaranteed way for an idol to get on camera. I'm not positive, but I think one of the girls in ebisu muscats was trying to cry and then Okamura pointed out "Hey, tears aren't coming out".  So after the ebisu muscat girl lost at sumo all of the girls cried (it's just a gag though to get camera time). And the original girl still couldn't cry. I don't follow the group but she was funny.

I was re-watching the video that shurastriker posted last week, and noticed Kaho's shoes were placed at the back of the stage. That's kind of like how athletes write a players # on their jersey or shoes if they're missing.

I like how they remember to involve the members that aren't able to participate, like when Kaho was again absent when they did a show at the Toyota theme park in Odaiba, but she was able to do MC from offstage.

PASSPO Research
They haven't talked about their "overseas tour" in a long time, but I've still been trying to figure out which city PASSPO will visit next:

Last week they were in Nagoya:

One mark of a well written pop song is that it can be covered by other artists and sound fresh. Shoujo Hikou (Flying Girl) is a great pop song, Passpo☆  did a great job with it. The guys in this clip are d-iZe and Johnny Saito (he is playing guitar) and they as well as a group of other talented musicians cover lots of songs. Check out their playyouhousejp  channel on YouTube for more. So respect to d-iZe and Johnny for honoring Passpo☆ with your cover!

Don't forget to vote for Makoto in the poll. Totally kidding. I don't think I have the power to force anyone to vote for her.

Yay, Yuki has a vote. Oooh, do you also run the snsdlyrics blog?

I didn't realize it was there last show, I should have paid more attention (I usually casually watch while doing homework). The website does say it was their final episode. M&m's looked sooo cute today, but I tend to just pay attention to Shiori because her personality is like a car crash I can't turn away from. 

The video quality seemed to have improved a lot from last week (I wonder if odoroku went through an upgrade), although maybe it's just my internet connection. Watching pre-dia's show now with their new member, she's cute.

If it was their last show, I'll miss Shiori's weirdness (like annoying Yuki and Sako today). Their show is actually the reason I am a Makoto fan though. I've liked PASSPO for a while, but for over a year she was completely invisible to me. After watching their show, I started to realize how adorably hilarious she can be at times. And now I've become an annoying Mako-chan fanboy that asks new members to vote for her.

LOL I love how Yukimi and Shiori are always messing about in their own little world every time they appear on the web show together.  :lol: They were so cute linking arms, leaning on each other, poking each other, giggling & whispering together as well as Shiori poking Sako from behind during their last show. :P

Yup I run the snsdlyrics blog too :) The PASSPO page is way too unorganized and messy though. D: I keep forgetting to update it and make it prettier lol :p

I hope pre-dia's show takes over PASSPO's one's old time slot since I hate staying up late to watch things. I also hope this means PASSPO will get a proper tv show of their own since their web one finished.

PASSPO News
12月発売予定のDVDシングル 『キス=スキ』 が決定しました。ぜひ、ご確認下さい。
Their next single Kisu=Suki will be released in December.

A few weeks ago Sako blogged in this entry that it would come out in October.
http://ameblo.jp/sacopon/entry-10999557875.html#cbox (http://ameblo.jp/sacopon/entry-10999557875.html#cbox)

If it came out in October, it would have only been two months from the release of ViVi Natsu, but I think they were trying to make up for the delay the March 11 earthquake had on the original release date of Shoujo Hiko (scheduled to release on April 6, it was delayed to May 4). Releasing their third single in October would have kept the schedule of a new single every three months. This also would have allowed them to release their second album in December (TAKE*OFF was released Dec 8 last year). Of course they could still release an album in December even if they release a single in that month, but it seems less likely. This is just me rambling though, they haven't mentioned anything about their second album yet.

PASSPO Flight News
Today they changed the venue of the November 19 concert to Asakasa Blitz. Previously they were going to perform at Shinjuku Blaze. Blitz has a capacity of 1400+, while Blaze has a capacity of 800. The first thing I thought of when I read Asakasa Blitz was their performance at last year's DANCEROID FES, which was held at Blitz.  At the time that was probably the second largest venue they had performed at (the largest being TIF 2010). After the concert Yukki mentioned they'd like to perform a solo concert there in the future.

It's a really old video, but in case anyone missed it:
ぱすぽ☆ コメント DANCEROID FES SP!! 28/11/2010 PASSPO (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qeOewp0rzA#ws)
It's cool that a year later, they actually will be performing a solo live there. The November 19 concert also happens to be the concert I am 99.7% sure I will be attending. I think pigmin is also thinking about going.

I think there is a good chance that pre-dia will be the opening act for this concert. There are a few similarities between this show and their show at Shibuya AX in July, which was the last time that pre-dia opened for PASSPO. Similar venue size (1500 for Shibuya AX and 1400 for Blitz), and pre-dia will have had a new single come out the following week after both concerts. Of course, pre-dia recently started doing their own solo shows, so again this is just me rambling.

@PASSPO: Yay, I'm glad it's you. Sorry if it seemed like I was prying with the questions. I actually thought you weren't a fan anymore because I hadn't noticed new PASSPO entries at your main blog (which is totally ok) and you stopped posting at the *other* forum (which is totally ok). Hmm, I hope that doesn't make me sound like a stalker XD. I remember when we were the only overseas PASSPO fans. And now... there are like 6 or 7 :P.

LOL I love how Yukimi and Shiori are always messing about in their own little world every time they appear on the web show together.  :lol: They were so cute linking arms, leaning on each other, poking each other, giggling & whispering together as well as Shiori poking Sako from behind during their last show. :P
It's a good thing Natsumi wasn't in the front seat blocking them, jk (totally kidding, she blogged that she missed the show because she was sick). Confession time... I *may* have called Yukki a "giant" in the previous page :oops:. In case you saw that and hated me.

And Makoto is getting a photo book?

@PASSPO: Yay, I'm glad it's you. Sorry if it seemed like I was prying with the questions. I actually thought you weren't a fan anymore because I hadn't noticed new PASSPO entries at your main blog (which is totally ok) and you stopped posting at the *other* forum (which is totally ok). Hmm, I hope that doesn't make me sound like a stalker XD. I remember when we were the only overseas PASSPO fans. And now... there are like 6 or 7 :P.

It's a good thing Natsumi wasn't in the front seat blocking them, jk (totally kidding, she blogged that she missed the show because she was sick). Confession time... I *may* have called Yukki a "giant" in the previous page :oops:. In case you saw that and hated me.

I'm totally fine with all the questions and I've never stopped loving PASSPO! In fact I love them even more. :D I just got lazy with updating. :( I'm not good with forums either, I just stick to twitter (and a bit of tumblr) these days with PASSPO news. :B I remember that too! I was so happy to find an English page that had stuff about PASSPO since there were barely anyone who seemed to know them which motivated to start my own fan page with info. I'm glad they've gotten more popular with non-Japanese fans and LOL at "And now... there are like 6 or 7."

I don't hate you for that, she really is a giant.  :lol: It sucks Nachu didn't get to be there for their last webshow broadcast, I hope she gets better soon since they have 2 shows to perform today.

I'm really looking forward to Mako-chan's 1st PB! :) This is really great for her and I knew this would be happening sometime soon since she's the most loved member by fans. I saw some of the photographer's previous works (http://kawashimakotori.com/work/) (he's only released 2 other PBs) and I like what I see. The title 'Run Run Makoto' makes me think of Alice in Wonderland.. I know Makoto loves the mori fashion style so personally I would like to see a fairytale fantasy inspired PB with lots of pretty forest shots in dresses (but not the lolita style that Mio loves) instead of the 'typical' idol gravure PBs that have swimsuits. It would be cool if they had been able to shoot some stuff in the snow since I always love snow scenes in PBs.  :wub:

It would be a shame if pre-dia stops doing the opening for some of PASSPO's shows. :(

Random bits of PASSPO news
* Starting from October, 'Kiss = Love' will be the theme song to NTV's GuruGuru Ninety Nine. (http://www.ntv.co.jp/gurunai/) I really can't wait to hear this song!
* Not sure if this has been posted yet but the b-side to 'Kiss = Love' is called 'Hello' and the intro's choreo involves a new scarf technique. I can't wait to see it! I also don't know if this single only has the one b-side since 'ViVi Natsu' had two, if there is going to be another they haven't announced or performed it.
* 'Kiss = Love' will be released as a dvd single sometime in December. I think it's a song about unrequited love.
* I've read that an album will be released at the same time as their next single but I don't think this has been confirmed so let's just think of this as a rumour, either way I can't wait for a new album!

Moshing, lifting people up and jumping are now banned at shows.

ぱすぽ☆「ViVi夏」BOMBER-E 秋まつりSP2011 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfNO7nGael4#ws)
PASSPO at the Autumn Festival in Nagoya on 9/25. I think this is the first footage with their new costumes (which kind of look like a combination of their last two outfits, but with a hat). And Shiori's close-up at the beginning was :lol: and :wub:.

The girls didn't get paid to attend the festival, but they each got to take home a limited edition commemorative fan.

This pic is from May but I just randomly stumbled upon it. She's with Uramasa from Fudanjuku.

This week Shiori has been answering fan questions at her blog and someone mentioned her nickname Morishi is similar to Morrissey. She replied that she had heard of Morrissey before and a fan had given her a cd. I thought it was interesting for a Japanese fan to mention that.

Random bits of PASSPO news
* 'Kiss = Love' will be released as a dvd single sometime in December. I think it's a song about unrequited love.

October 3rd update:
Moshing, lifting people up and jumping are now banned at shows.
Fans only go crazy because Shiori and Kaho encourage it :P.

jk, I actually noticed that too but I think it would be hard to enforce. Concert venue staff at small and mid-size venues are typically really lax when it comes to enforcing rules. At every show I went to (not just PASSPO) there is an announcement not to mosh or jump off dividers or act like an idiot. But when the show starts the staff disappear and are never seen from again. And then you hear all the doors lock and it's every man and woman for themselves. I think the whole "moshpit with glowsticks" is part of the PASSPO experience. The only way to ban moshing is to only book concerts at venues that have seating, but that reduces capacity... and it's just not cool.

Or maybe there can be a compromise, like you can only mosh, jump, and dive off structures in slow motion.

Since they are releasing a single with a DVD I guess it won't be 1,000Y, like most of their previous singles. I'd prefer CD single because it's cheaper and it's better for the environment not to press a disk just for a PV (unless there is other content besides the music video).

^Bad news for me XD I prefer Shinjuku Blaze rather than Asakasa Blitz personally. But i think i'm still wanna go....
I need more info about the change, but there are a few things I am concerned about (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif):
1) It's possible they will reduce the two shows there were going to do at BLAZE to 1 show at BLITZ. Of course it would be horrible if they did that, because I'm selfish and want to go to both shows. And it would suck if one concert had to be used for the birthdays of three members. I was thinking they would celebrate Shiori's birthday at the 11-5 show at Universal Studios Japan, but that event has mysteriously vanished from their schedule.
2) Since it's a larger venue they also may have advance ticket sales for fan-club members. This isn't that bad, but it's a little unfair to overseas fans who aren't able to join PAL and therefore have to wait 1-2 weeks in order to buy a ticket.

Advantage of Blaze
3) There is a McDonalds really nearby, and I was planning on buying Chicken McNuggets for Shiori and give them to her during the handshake.

I guess it's best to just wait for more info. Sorry for all the rambling.

Fortunately, the management has announced that there will still have two shows on 11/19 BLIZE One Man Live today :twothumbs  The only thing i'm concern at this moment is the ticket price, i hope it will still the same as before.

The photobook entry was so detailed :). I laughed at "looking happy, looking displeased, dancing, leaping into the air and laughing!"
The only thing missing is "Makoto napping". I was looking at their singles yesterday and in the Hallelujah booklet she was napping in some of the pics, and I think she has a reputation as an eternally sleepy person.
Makoto dancing reminds me of this "dance" she learned from Sako:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-2-7a.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-2-7a.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-2-7b.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-2-7b.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-2-6.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-2-6.jpg)

Speaking of dancing, am I the only one that is really amused by Natsumi's dancing? I've always noticed that her spins are "at her own pace", but recently I've been seeing stuff that I find hilarious. Like in the above youtube video, at the end she doesn't complete the routine with her arm and is ready to walk off stage, and then staggers back into the pose. I wonder if she drives their choreographer crazy XD (Kaho also salutes with the wrong hand, hehe)

^ I think the price of the concert should still be same. Sometimes there is a 500Y cover for drinks though. Really glad it's still two shows, so awesome. That's a lot of passengers. :plane:

Oh, and since my friends are always telling me they don't get when I am joking, I wasn't planning on getting Shiori Chicken McNuggets. That would be gross and I'm not even sure the McDonald's in Japan serve those. There is a McDonalds next door to Blaze though, which is why I thought of that. And if anyone was confused by the Mio "duwa duwa" pic I did from last week, it was a reference to School Rumble. I thought she looked like the main character in that anime:

LOL yeah I was just reading the description from the Japanese listings and it had stuff like that and a little more. Sleepy/Sleeping Makoto is so cute  :) Nachu is so dorky.   :lol: I love her love for ice cream and she's the only member who was born in the same year as me. I love 'ViVi Natsu' since it's one of the PASSPO songs where nearly all girls get a solo line.. I wish they will have one song where everyone gets at least 1 solo part. D: *crosses fingers*

On the 12th of October the movie that Naomi, Kaho, Shiori & Anna are in 'Cheerfu11y' will have its first screening. I wish I could go, it looks like a cuter version of 'Bring It On'. I hope they will actually release this on DVD since they canceled the DVD release for PASSPO's movie 'High Tension'. :(

The BOMB issue that Makoto is in comes out today, I can't wait to see the scans. According to the BOMB website she's listed under "bikini gravure".

PASSPO will be in BLT magazine that's out October 24. :)

Post by: qwiksXnd on October 08, 2011, 01:45:25 AM
I didn't realize most of the members had solo lines in ViVi Natsu (so I had to listen to it following along with your color coded lyrics (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif)). I always thought it would be cool for the individual version of the singles to include a bonus track with that member singing the song solo or having the lead vocals. And for the PV to include a *dance shot* version with just Natsumi :P.

Since Natsumi and Makoto didn't have a line... it reminded me of something I thought was weird about the kawaii girl japan video from Shiodome AX. I've watched it like 20+ times, and I always thought something was weird about the MC part. When it came to Natsumi and Makoto, they were handed a live mic. I thought this was strange because they already had mics. Why would they need a mic if they already had one? The other girls just adjusted their mics closer to their mouth when they did their intro. Is it because... is it because... their mics are turned off?? *cliche horror music* What if their mics aren't even real, and they're toys they bought at the 100Y store *dies*

Well since I am pointing out pointless stuff, Sako's mic was also freakishly large compared to the others. I bet they made fun of her :cry:.

On the 12th of October the movie that Naomi, Kaho, Shiori & Anna are in 'Cheerfu11y' will have its first screening. I wish I could go, it looks like a cuter version of 'Bring It On'. I hope they will actually release this on DVD since they canceled the DVD release for PASSPO's movie 'High Tension'. :(
Hehe, I thought of "Bring it On" also. That was actually a Universal movie and since "Cheerfu11y" is being produced by Universal Japan, I guess the similarities were intentional. I'm still a little bitter about the "High Tension" catastrophe. Maybe I can go to a shady part of Tokyo and buy a bootleg version. Is there a "china town" in Tokyo? *kidding*

Post by: PASSPO on October 08, 2011, 02:19:12 AM
^ That idea for each member's solo version of a single to include a bonus track with only them singing the song is such an awesome idea! LOL at having a Nachu-only dance shot. XD

The mics have always been strange for me to see. Some of them (the main singers) have hand-held ones and the ones who don't, I've always wondered if those were turned off/just a prop or just much more quieter with them singing over a backing track. I don't know. D:

I'm disappointed that they canceled 'High Tension' not only once but twice! :( The first time they canceled it I understood since it was really expensive but it came in a box-set with a behind-the-scenes photobook. Then they were just going to release it as one dvd but it got canceled without any notice. :/

OMG look what I found!

On sale on October 18 - Young Champion magazine and guess who will be on the cover and have the main gravure spread?
(http://i.imgur.com/ljvXO.jpg)
This is so exciting! I am so glad it's the whole group instead of just Makoto with maybe Ai or Mio. YAY for the whole group!  :heart:
The bottom right also says there will be a PASSPO clear file too!

Makoto and Mio both tweeted that they are both on their way to Hiroshima right now, saying it's both their first time going. I'm guessing this is for a photoshoot. :O

Did someone say "bikini"? *puts on glasses* (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif)

My observations
It appears they are wearing the same style bikini and they are color-coded. Anna's head is blocking Natsumi. I can't verify that she is wearing a top. *takes off glasses*  :)

How many "Young" magazines are there, Young Weekly, Monthly, and Champion. Japan, lol.

And yeah, the multiple cancellations were annoying. It's weird because Japan is the land of super low budget movies and every week it seems there are hundreds released.

I think sometimes a studio just needs to release a movie regardless of how it will sell. It reflects on the group poorly to have a low selling movie, but it looks worse when the movie isn't even released. And if the girls want to audition for a movie they can't really talk about their debut. "I was in a movie! It was great. You can't watch it though... it was never released." *awkward silence*

M&M Adventures™ - Fieldtrip to Hiroshima®

Last week Makoto and Mio were given permission to return to their hometown in Hiroshima to spend some time with their parents.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-10-9a.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-10-9a.jpg)
This is the only photo we have of the entire family together! They look so cute with their parents Megumi and Mario.

Once they changed into their little kid outfits from when they were in elementary school, they embarked on their adventure.

After an hour of adventuring, Makoto telepathically informed Mio that it was nap time.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-10-9f.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-10-9f.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_mandmstx2.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=mandmstx2.jpg)
Ever since they were kids they've enjoyed napping together :wub:

Once they were "powered up" by their two hour nap it was time for important field research... with crayons.

After a long day of adventuring, field research, and multiple naps, Makoto prepared dinner for the entire family! In this photo she is serving monster brains, her favorite traditional Hiroshima food :drool:.

The End.

^^ Yay! And the members that weren't in the movie attended the premier to show their support. They were all there! Except Sako! She said she was at home "studying", but really she was plotting how to get the lead role in "Cheerfu11y 2".

* I found 3 listings on Amazon JP for the album. One is 3,000 yen while the other two are 3,500 yen. Only one of the 3,500 yen ones is Limited Edition. You can find the links here: http://twitter.com/# (http://twitter.com/#)!/PasspoRadar/status/125479254619209730
* Last night the girls did 2 shows at BLAZE. At the first show they celebrated Miomio's birthday from October 6th as well as celebrate Halloween. They celebrated Halloween during the second show too.
 
My friend went to the second show last night and got to have a 2-shot with Miomio. :) Miomio told her that she remembered seeing her from a previous show, aww! :D Also in her own words:

"omg passpo is the best ( ;∀;) my friend wrote naomin a letter about how we met at their live and went to karaoke and added our purikura and apparently naomin had tweeted about getting a letter that made her really happy, and she told my friend tonight it was her letter! ;u;"

PASSPO really is the best!  :wub: oh, and..

"today's show featured special guests angelina musshu, shiori forest, and anna montana"

PASSPO news is so exciting! XD And it's fun reading about someone who went to a Flight. :plane:

I have a few thoughts but I'll have to edit them in because I'm... tired, lol.

edit #1
11-19 @ Akasaka BLITZ
OPENING ACT: pre-dia :D
Ticket release date: 11-5 (I guess that means no pre-sale for PAL, hehe)
New songs and costumes!

edit #2
According to the Universal J site CHECK-IN will have 15 songs, including "See you Again" and another new song called "Turn Round" and six more new songs. So I think it's See You Again + Turn Round + six more new songs + K=S and Hello + the 2 singles and b-sides.

Remember how Take*Off just had one new song :)

Edit #3
PASSPO news is so exciting!

edit#4
I think edit #2 may be incorrect, because that would mean their album has 10 new songs. Is that even passpossible?

Remember how Take*Off just had one new song :)

^ PASSPO news really is exciting!  XD
I'm really, really excited for this new album. 3 versions though with 2 being Limited Edition, ahh. D: I think I might get LE A for the photobook.. but the DVD is tempting too. I hope someone rips it and uploads it somewhere because I don't have the money to buy both. :(
"passpossible"  :lol:

I got confused trying to count up all the songs but I do believe that there will be 15 songs altogether in the album. On the CD Japan listings for both the LE A and LE B, I'm pretty sure it says that people who buy the first press will also get 1 new bonus song. :O

'Young Champion' magazine went on sale today and here's a photo of the cover along with a PASSPO clear file you get with it! So cute and colourful! :)

Young Champion looks great. So young, so champion! I checked HMV and amazon but I don't think they sell it. It was not meant to be. You can tell they look great on the cover though. And I'm still not sure if Natsumi is wearing a bikini top (jk).

I think I'll get A + B, but I'm not sure about K=S. I'll consider it based on any possible bonus that comes with it. I pre-ordered both versions of pre-dia's single and Mako's pb so I might just stick with A+B.

I'm curious about the unit songs you mentioned. Pre-dia's single has two unit songs (a duet with Rumina and Akane, and a song with five members). There are infinite possibilities but since I like to predict stuff (and ramble) I think they will either do 1) two 5-member songs, or 2) one song with the "aces" and one M&M song OR...*drum roll* two Kaho and Naomin rap songs (one gangsta rap and one rap-ballad. Natsumi could be the third member of the rap group but she just dances). And the bonus song could be a third K&N rap song :note:!

Post by: PASSPO on October 20, 2011, 10:30:56 AM
I'm not sure about K=S's dvd single either since I think it's just going to contain the music video and nothing else. :(

LOL the unit songs make me think it might be a Naomi + Kaho thing or the M&M's too.  :lol:

A few months ago a new contest started for rock bands to apply and have the chance to perform with PASSPO in the future as well as get a cd produced for them. The final bands have been chosen and now we get to vote for who we want to win! 8 bands made it through:

http://www.street-f.net/passpo/passpo.php (http://www.street-f.net/passpo/passpo.php)

There are 2 videos each (the grey buttons). Both are of the band performing with the second video having them perform a PASSPO song. To vote, click the red button. Have fun! :)

Cool. I saw the update at your tumblr and then spent way too much time at work watching the videos, hehe. Is the evaluation grade from the PASSPO members?

It looks like they are planning on having the winner perform at the 11/19 Blitz flight, which will be their 2 year anniversary (Flight #1 was on 09-11-17).

Hey guys. I thought I post here say hello. This Passpo thread is way more active than any other forum. I'm getting a little bored of posting all the news about Passpo haha. Also, the English forum has hardly anyone on it. ( Just Me :sad: )

I'm planning on getting all versions of their album and the Kiss = Love DVD (two copies, one as a gift in fact)

I couldn't see it before so apologies if it's been discussed but what bonus photos did everyone get with their ViVi Natsu singles?

Hopefully in the next few days I'll pay my last custom charge for my ViVi Natsu singles. -exciting- I've been waiting for this last parcel for what feels like forever.

Also I only got Take Off (RE) the other day. Which is bad. I need to work on getting the rest of their discography.

So................ hi!

Thank you for the welcome qwiksXnd. I think I voted for her before I even posted. :P

Who did you guys vote for for the bands? It was Salmon Pink for me. I really like them and didn't like any of the others at all.

I still haven't voted yet.. D: I'm torn between 2 groups. Voting ends later on today so I'll re-watch all their performances and hopefully have made a decision by then.  :P

PASSPO 2012 Calendar!! It will go on sale November 18 and will be 2,500 yen! Not sure if online stores will stock it, at least pre-order listings aren't up. I really hope it'll be easy for non-Japanese residents to get it!

I have all the details on the calendar as well as some preview photos of it here: http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/)

PASSPO will also be releasing 2 books next month and they sound really great! I hope they have lots of pages in them since that wasn't specified. I wrote up a page with all the details I know here: http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/)

The photographing for the books was done as the same time as their calendar ( http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/) ) so there's probably going to be a lot of summer-y beach/pool/bikini/swimsuit photos.  :P

All 3 releases are out in November but I'm not sure if they'll be for sale at online stores... since these are done in collaboration with B.L.T. magazine. I don't know if that means you can only buy them at a special event in Japan. :/

I didn't even know they had a calendar coming out. I was hoping but didn't know. D: I know what I want for Christmas. Also, girls, stop releasing stuff!! Three album versions, Makoto PB, DVD single, Calendar and two books. Do you have any idea what you're doing to me?! I haven't ordered any of the yet. ; ;

A few days ago Shiori blogged that they've been in the studio recording their album. According to her it's going to be "Morishi-tastic" and "Shiori-rific"! She was also wearing her Batman hoodie (jk).

Since the competition is over, I voted for Salmon Pink on day 1 and then Zombeats, Fresh Venom, Zombeats and Zombeats. 

Passenger News of the Day
Today I booked my flight to Japan to see PASSPO on Nov 19 :). I'll be staying at the same hotel that I was at this summer, which coincidentally is about 1 km away from Blitz. I was planning on seeing Idoling on the 20th, but pre-dia recently scheduled a concert for the same day. I actually predicted they would do that. Well I didn't write it down anywhere because no one would care, but I predicted it in my mind that they would do a concert that weekend (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif).

And although this is going to make me seem like a huge dork, I also ordered glowsticks from a Japanese glowstick website and they arrived today :P. I actually had some leftover disposable glowsticks from the Idoling concert I went to, but I noticed that not many people use those anymore. I read somewhere that some idols don't like it if you have multiple favorite members, oh well!

EDIT: Do we know if their film was ever released on DVD? I heard some where it was only available to buy in Tokyo. qwiksXnd are you going to have a look for it? I'd love to know if it's buy-able, I would just die for a copy. <3
Also, does anyone have any of their photos available at their lives. Are they worth it? Because I'd like some and I'm wondering if it's worth finding someone to pick some up for me.

@Charlokylie: Do you mean their film 'High Tension Please'? The DVD release was canceled ..twice. D: I hope 'Cheerfu11y' will come out on DVD and not get canceled.


Great news everyone! CDJapan, HMV Japan and YesAsia have pre-order links for PASSPO's 2012 calendar and HMV JP & CDJapan have pre-order links up for the ATTENTION PLEASE Visual & Character books! I have the pre-order links up here:

http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-2012-calendar/)
http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/)

There's a catch though - CDJapan says the pre-order deadline for all 3 items is October 31st (Japan time) which is on Monday. It's Saturday evening there now at the time of when I posted this comment. Very short pre-order time..

I asked CDJapan if that means the 3 items are a "very limited release" and if it's still possible to order the items from them after the deadline, they responded to me with:
"Yes, the publisher will be able to commit 100% to orders placed before the deadline. It's really hard to say [if we can still pre-order after the deadline] because they will be supplying them to a large number of shops and bookstores. It's best if you order before."

I don't think HMV JP has a pre-order deadline for the items though. Just letting you all know in case you want the items, there's not a lot of time to pre-order before the CDJapan deadline! D:

EDIT:
A PASSPO DVD called 'Po' will be sold at convenience stores all over Japan - 7/11 and Circle K Sankus - on December 1st at a retail price of 1,980yen! Other DVDs titled 'Pa' and 'Su' will be sold at a limited event. OMG WANT. D: These items are too exclusive. :(

^ Glad you are going to go, so I guess you got your passport (the real one, not PASSPO one, hehe). I'm not sure how you decided to get your tickets, but I wanted to quickly let you know that although general release is on Nov 5, there is a pre-lottery that is currently going on (10/29 - 10/31). My friend entered me, but I was thinking about your situation when he gave me the update today. I was thinking of having him enter another ticket for you too, but felt I shouldn't do anything without your approval and Im not sure if you were planning on going to both shows or just one. He was doing me a huge favor so I didn't want to press my luck by complicating the process. Its not necessary to do the lottery and I am positive there will be tickets available on the 5th, and probably even on the day of the concert, but wanted to share the information I have. There's also a drink cover, probably 5-600¥, so you'll want to have some coins with you. My advice would be to not even redeem the drink token since there will be a huge line, and just bypass all the people there and get a better spot near the stage. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to help if I can.

@PASSPO thanks for all the info on their upcoming releases :). I'm interested in the PA-SU-PO dvd's (if they are concerts), too bad they're on sale after I'll have left.

Did anyone happen to save the Shiodome AX video that was on youtube (originally posted on p. 12)? The video went private recently. If anyone saved it though, can you upload it (not necessarily back to YT, but mediafire or something similar), TY.

^ I saw that too. TIF 2011 footage!

Hi pigmin, I'll try to help out if I can. Let me know which concerts you were planning to attend: 13:00, 18:00, or both. Also let me know your budget because the tickets will cost more than face value, unfortunately with taxes and service charges it's impossible to buy tickets for just 3,000Y (you can pm the max you are willing to spend for tickets). I can't guarantee anything unfortunately, but when I get an update on my tickets on 11/2 I'll ask if he is able to buy additional tickets. If he is, I am willing to buy and pay for the tickets for you, and you could pay me back at Blitz. If I am not able to though, there are other options. I think buying a ticket the day of the event should be avoided if possible.

For concerts that don't have assigned seating, when you buy a ticket it will have a number on it. The earlier you buy the ticket the lower the number. If you buy the ticket the day of the event you will have a number that is pretty high, and since they let people in based on ticket number, you could be waiting a while until you get in.

I mentioned a few months ago that I used http://www.fdjp.com/ (http://www.fdjp.com/) , which is a service that can buy any concert ticket in advance. Their commission is 25%, but based on my experience, once all misc fees are added you'll probably pay around 36-40%. Once they receive your payment by paypal they'll buy the ticket and send it to your hotel so it's waiting when you check-in. They have a minimum commission charge of 2,500Y.

If that option seems too expensive or risky, you could buy your tickets when you arrive in Japan (which I am assuming will be several days before the concert). A lot of hotels have concierges or ticket/tour offices. Ask them to help you buy a ticket through e+ (the ticketing service PASSPO is using for this concert) and once you reserve the ticket, you can pay for it at a convenience store and they'll print the ticket there.

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on November 01, 2011, 05:09:54 PM
^ DEPARTURE was the last single released before they made their major debut. It has Yume Passport, Sakura Iro and Let It Go!! in it. It's not really an important single since the songs are already on the TAKE OFF album which they released a week before it.

I added some more information for the LE B - DVD version of their upcoming major album 'CHECK-IN' at: http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-check-in/ (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-check-in/) including a link to qwiksXnd's fan account! :D

I pre-ordered LE A last night and can't wait! I really want LE B too for the DVD of their concert since I've never seen a full 'proper' concert of theirs (Ustream doesn't count muahahaha) even though the concert on the DVD is just a digest. Still good enough for me! I hope the camera work is great. :D I just hope someone will upload the concert to youtube or something lol. D:

(http://snsdlyrics.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/top_banner_checkin.jpg)

ALSO the KISS=SUKI DVD single's cover is out:
(http://snsdlyrics.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/kisssuki.jpg)
KISS=SUKI and CHECK-IN is the 2011 version of DEPARTURE and TAKE OFF as qwiksXnd has said before.  :lol:

^ Thanks. I always knew about it but thought DEPARTURE was an actual song.  :nervous

Thank you for all the info. The covers look nothing short of amazing. Seriously amazing. Just the outfits, the colours everything. And I'm loving the huuuuge tracklist!  :wub: I think the RE is by fan the best cover. It looks gr9 and I'm glad it's in an airport!


EDIT: The DVD contents is great! I hope they feature pre-dia on it. I've been getting into them so so so much lately.

EDIT 2: Not my picture, but a this is where in Kansai International they shot the covers. Kansai Airport (http://www.flickr.com/photos/toddalperovitz/1547554643/#)

edit AGAIN:

Pictures of the PB, Front and back. ^^ It looks AWESOME

PASSPO news is exciting.

I really want LE B too for the DVD of their concert since I've never seen a full 'proper' concert of theirs (Ustream doesn't count muahahaha) even though the concert on the DVD is just a digest. Still good enough for me! I hope the camera work is great. :D I just hope someone will upload the concert to youtube or something lol. D:
I feel the same way, I want a full concert dvd. I would turn off all the lights in my apartment and take out my glowsticks to get the full effect (*kidding* I wouldn't do that). Although I get kind of bored when I watch concert dvd's or LODs of the other groups I like, I would watch every PASSPO flight if they were available somewhere (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif) Like if all 224 flights (just made up that number) were available at the local library, every week I would head on down and check a new one out, and the librarian would be expecting me and scream, "We just received the latest PASSPO Flight! I reserved it just for you!" and I would reply "Thanks Ms. Librarian person!".

I think the only flight they're officially released on dvd was this one at Matsumoto Airport:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_matsumotoairport.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=matsumotoairport.jpg)
It was part of the DVD COMPLETE BOX.

...........what's in her mouth?  :lol:
I think it's tissue. Every now and then "Weird Makoto" shows up on her blog.   
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_11-4-2.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=11-4-2.jpg)

Personally I prefer "Evil Mako":

Post by: PASSPO on November 03, 2011, 09:33:30 AM
^ LOL evil Makoto.  XD Cute library story! :) I would watch every PASSPO concert all the time if they were available. I wish they did film and release all their flights.. or at least do more USTREAM shows. I miss those. :(

I can't wait for scans from Makoto's photobook!

^ Thank you

The covers look even better in large. The RE is still my fav though. I won't be getting the FP poster, I have no where to put it up anyway. But I will be buying all the versions next month <3. I would have bought the album by now but I got the calendar instead. ^^ Hopefully it goes through. Anyone else ordered the calendar?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on November 08, 2011, 12:26:57 AM
^ The regular version's cover is my favourite too but I'm getting LE A for the photobook. I'm not getting the calendar but I do want to get the visual/character books (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/) (especially the character one) but I don't think I can since they're both expensive and I can't order anything else at the moment.  :cry:

Two preview photos from Young Magazine that went on sale yesterday:

They're also in her photobook. I know it's weird but like it.  :lol: There are complaints on Amazon JP's review section saying her photobook is artsy instead of being sexy like typical idol gravure photobooks. >_>

I think it's a 8 pages B2 size "poster", it's not already a ISO9001 standard? XD I have no idea about the extra photo, but due to the preview of the cover, it said there will include a "Bonus Cut", but i don't know what is that, sorry!

Hi guys, been a passpo fan for few months only, but this my first post here... XD

Anyways, just a question ; How do you buy tickets for Passpo Concerts? Do you have to be a fan club member or something? Or can just buy directy ? And how easy is it to buy them ?

I'm into H!P and AKB as well, and for H!P, sometimes i can just buy the concert tickets 2nd hand from 2nd hand ticket shop such as Gorakudoh, but im not sure how Passpo system works here.

I am planning my next Japan Trip on March 2012 (yea still kinda long, i know), but i want to prepare beforehand just in case ^^

Also, i have made my own Passpo Fan site/blog right here, do check it out! Still nothing much though~ lol...anyone wanna contribute?
http://www.passpofan.com (http://www.passpofan.com)

Another thing, i'm thinking about making a Passpo Forum on my server, what do you guys think ? I just scare if i make it, nobody wants to post lol...as you know Passpo fanbase isnt that big as AKB or H!P yet lol...

Cheers  :twothumbs

I have already created a passpo forum actually, just have been too scared to post it here lmao.

http://takeoff.forumotion.co.uk/ (http://takeoff.forumotion.co.uk/)

It already has a lot of content on it anyway. We should post there (all of us) and you and me inferz0 can talk about collaborating? I can tell you my ideas. :)

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on November 15, 2011, 10:42:18 PM
If you're talking about the 'Pa', 'Su' and 'Po' DVDs then they are all image DVDs with no previews nor covers out. The 'Po' version will be sold nationwide at 7/11s and Circle K Sankus' on December 1st while the 'Pa' and 'Su' DVDs will only be sold at PASSPO events. The retail price for the 'Po' one (and I'm guessing it's the same price for the other two) is 1,980 yen.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Charlokylie on November 15, 2011, 10:45:46 PM
Like, uhmmm solo shot DVDs they often accompany PB releases? If so awesome! I imagine they're a tie in with the new books. I already have someone who is going to pick me up a copy of Po. :D But I want to get hold of the others. 
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on November 15, 2011, 10:50:37 PM
I'm guessing they could be since they're described as "image dvds" instead of a dvd where they're doing activities. Do you think you'll be able to rip the dvd and upload it somewhere once you get it? Those dvds, especially 'Pa' and 'Su' are going to be really hard to get. D:
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Charlokylie on November 15, 2011, 11:07:17 PM
No problem! I'll have to log on downstairs because my DVD drive has died though. Also, I'll put it on a track somewhere but it might take a while for some of you to download because my upload speed is terrible. D: haha

I'll let you guys know if I some how manage to get the others too. And help you all out if you can. If anyone else manages to you should let us know. I'm dying to get copies.

I'm not really sure what to write... there were so many new songs!, they debuted their Check-In costume! and Kiss=Suki PV!, and of course the NEW MEMBERS!!!

Jk about that last thing, hehe :)

Shiori is *officially* my new favorite :wub: Previously my favorites were 1) Natsumi -> Kaho -> Sako -> Makoto and now Shiori :inlove:

Pigmin hope you got there ok ( the weather was horrible the day of the concert.)

Great photos and I'm glad you both had fun! :D

Sorry to spoil all the happiness right now but there's a RUMOUR that one of the PASSPO girls will leave the group after New Years..
I will keep updated on this from my twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/PasspoRadar/statuses/138712591039074304 (http://twitter.com/#!/PasspoRadar/statuses/138712591039074304)

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: °C-ute on November 22, 2011, 01:06:20 AM
^ Why is it that unreasonable that someone would want to leave? I can see various reasons why some girls would want to leave off of the top of my head. It is just a rumour but it's likely that someone could leave at the same time. I hope no one does though.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Charlokylie on November 22, 2011, 01:27:28 AM
^ I never said it was unreasonable. I basically said it was unlikely. Passpo is such a close family and none of the girls have been showing signs of leaving, so I'm choosing to believe that there won't be such a happening because I simply would give anything for it not to happen.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: °C-ute on November 22, 2011, 01:54:28 AM
^Sako might be having trouble keeping up with her schoolwork and frequently misses out on things because of it so I could see her leaving. Also I think that you can't always judge things on a superficial level tbh. They love each other but that doesn't mean they are happy being idols.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Charlokylie on November 22, 2011, 08:18:04 AM
^ I know that. That's the s/mileage scenario when Saki suddenly departed even though they're all best friends. The point is I'm just a very big fan who doesn't wasn't to believe that a member would leave

Or three

A fan in Japan told me that the rumour was three girls were looking to leave, one because she's unhappy about how the group's being run.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: °C-ute on November 22, 2011, 09:59:27 AM
^I understand. We are all such huge fans of Passpo and none of us want the girls to leave. Passpo is perfect like it is and seeing a member leave would be extremely sad.

You are kind of rubbing me the wrong way a bit to be completely honest. First you call it bull like it couldn't possibly be true and then you pick and choose who to believe. This didn't just come from air you know. It was rted many times on Twitter. It's really disrespectful to act like that. However I guess you could just be hurt and in denial so I'm not mad at you or anything. :)

Also it could be false. :D It's just a rumour at this point.

I wanted to meet pigmin, but I slacked on the organization of this trip tbh. It would have been really hard because of the rain and not being able to use our phones. My iphone got on softbank's line, but I'm not sure if I would have been able to text pigmin (even if I had his #). There were hundreds of people in the tunnel leading up to Blitz and then hundreds more at the entrance waiting to get in, all during a crazy storm. It was really chaotic. I kind of stood out, but it still would have been hard to organize a rendezvous point without us knowing the place well enough in advance. There was a lot of waiting around, so it's too bad we couldn't chat. I had no idea there would be so much down time during the after show event. Next time I go to their concert if anyone else goes also I'll definitely try to meet up.

I'll probably post my pre-dia recap tonight.

PASSPO had a 'Secret Live' yesterday and after the show everyone who attended got both the Visual/Character (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/passpo-official-books-attention-please/) photobooks. They all came signed with one member's autograph and they were handed out randomly. Lucky!

°C-ute Your translation is great!   :)

Less than 2 weeks until the DVD single and album come out!  :cow:

Last night the Kiss=Suki PV premiered on tv, I haven't found an upload for it on youtube yet. Also last night on the Sayumi x Mobekimasu USTREAM show the girls talked about PASSPO. Judging from the tweets I think Saki Nakajima from C-ute was talking about how she's gotten into PASSPO's music recently but I'm not too sure. Usually the shows get uploaded onto their youtube channel so hopefully they'll do that later today.

All the way back on January 14 2011, some of the girls went on niconico and me and °C-ute caught the show. I've uploaded the show in parts onto youtube, callers called in and played a game and won autographed goodies. If you see any English messages then it was either me or °C-ute  :nervous

^ Thank you


Hey guys. I'd like to apologise if I've upset or offended anyone recently. I won't let you know what's going on but it's no excuse for the way I've acted recently. I'm really sorry for anything I've said. I'll try and keep the talking in general to a minimum. And I'm sorry for spamming this thread quite often. I guess I got excited to find proper fans to talk to often but despite my tries I think I'm just simply annoying you all. I've tried several things to try and make the Passpo fan community grow, from the forum I created to the FB pages but most people haven't had any interest at all. I've failed in my current attempts and I should let you all who have been trying for longer and being more successful than I, carry on. I didn't mean to tread on anyone's toes and I'm sorry for being a poor fan.

I can't apologise enough. I'm sorry for being so selfish.

To finish here's my favourite picture from the calendar with all credits going to delerium for taking the photo and Passpo and the original photographers (B.L.T.? Though I'm probably wrong again) of course!!

OKAY so me and my friend °C-ute have been working on a new PASSPO fansite since my old one (http://snsdlyrics.wordpress.com/2010/11/23/passpo/) was getting too cluttered and it wasn't exactly smart to create it on a place where I also romanize lyrics. :B

INTRODUCING...

http://passpo.wordpress.com/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/) !!!

It's brand new and we've still got a lot to do on there but for now you guys can check out information on all of PASSPO's newest releases as well as all their profile pages. I also translated one blog entry that Kaho wrote yesterday since it was super short and I found it funny.  :P

I'm so hyped for CHECK-IN. I don't know exactly how many days remain until it's release but it's definitely less than 50!

Exactly 1 more week until CHECK-IN comes out!! YAY!  :cow:

In fact, CD Japan put up more of the limited first press bonus posters for LE A and LE B! 10 and 11 left (since I've checked).

Links along with tracklist, song previews, album covers and other details here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/check-in/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/check-in/)


On http://passpo.wordpress.com/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/) I've also translated a few blog entries. They're really bad for the longer entries (Naomi's France ones) so take them as a rough translation. Right now I have 1 Kaho entry, 1 Shiori entry and 3 Naomi entries like Naomi saying she got a boyfriend in Paris (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/2011-07-04-im-home-japan/), Shiori wishing Sako a happy birthday (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/2011-11-10-sako-happy-birthday/) and so on. :P

Still have a lot more to do on there as well as pre-dia fansite (http://predia.wordpress.com/)!

I've just got to say that recently I heard this group for the first time, and after learning and hearing more I'm totally in love with them. Their music is just too damn good. I listened to their first album in full tonight, so many terrific songs.. The previews for Check In sound amazing as well. And that's not even touching on how amazingly pretty the members are. This group has it all. :inlove: I have a feeling this group is going to be a keeper for me. Big time.

The photoshoot Makoto and Mio did in that app also appears in this magazine: G the Television (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/03/2011-08-23-g-the-television/). More information on that magazine and a video with photos in that app in the link.

PASSPO performed at Tama Plaza today and announced during the live...

Musshu (Kaho) will graduate on 12/30 (that's in 26 days) on the last leg of their ZEPP TOUR.

As I am typing this, their live is STILL going on so this news is very fresh. I'm tweeting more about it on @PassopoRadar (http://twitter.com/PasspoRadar) so be sure to check in case new information comes out and I don't post it here.

This news was SO sudden and me and my friend (@peachgirldb who alerted me) are just stunned. The girls and staff never confirmed nor denied the rumour about 1 member graduating, it was published in the Tokyo Sports newspaper too. Ughh I'm just so sad right now and shocked..  :cry:

I will update this page with more information too: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/04/announcement-kaho-to-graduate-from-passpo/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/04/announcement-kaho-to-graduate-from-passpo/)

Kaho is one of the Passpo members that first stood out to me- this is a surprise. Hopefully it means she is moving on to some kind of goal or dream. But Passpo will surely miss her talent and enthusiasm.

Post by: PASSPO on December 04, 2011, 12:17:29 PM
A couple hours have passed and I'm still shocked and utterly sad. :(

My friend translated Kaho's blog entry regarding her graduation here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/05/2011-12-04-announcement/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/05/2011-12-04-announcement/)

Quote
And I’m truly glad that I was able to meet the most amazing 9 comrades who worked hard with me almost everyday through these 2 years during both the most painful and the happiest times.

I love everyone!!!!!

I’m truly sad that even though I finally found somewhere I belonged, it’s turned out this way. (;_;)

Cheerfu11y is getting a DVD release! It comes out 2012.01.18 and it is ¥3,990. The length of the film is 89 minutes and the bonus feature is the movie trailer. There won't be any subtitles and the region code is 2.

Pre Orders are up, you can find the links as well as more information here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/15/2012-01-18-cheerfu11y/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/12/15/2012-01-18-cheerfu11y/)

PASSPO started their 3 day ZEPP Tour yesterday. Yesterday it was in Nagoya, tonight they'll be performing in Osaka and in two days in Tokyo. Their last show in Tokyo is also Musshu's graduation concert.  :cry: These 3 days will also be the only time people can buy the first 2 volumes of their image DVDs filmed in Okinawa, there's a limit of 1000 each being sold so I really hope someone uploads them..

I really hope there will be a dvd/blu-ray release of the Tokyo concert. It's seems like an obvious thing to do, but they have performed hundreds of concerts and haven't released a single one on dvd, so I'm not sure if that is a realistic expectation.

So some HUGE news about PASSPO was announced a few hours ago on a live stream. I don't want to say anything here because I need to find out all the details but it's huge and a lot of Japanese fans (including me and my friends who aren't J-fans) really shocked and angry.

I'll edit this later on when I am 100% sure on what was said.. Let's just say I am really not liking what UMJ are doing with PASSPO.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Charlokylie on January 09, 2012, 11:07:19 AM
No, no, no I don't even wanna know DD:

Splitting the group in two?
More graduations?
Auditions? DD:
New song style?
Disbanding?
Destroying the group in general?

Gah! Please tell.

I've been trying to go through twitter but I'm having to use google translate. From what I make out, are they adding new members? Or is that just a rumour that's arrived from this?

From https://twitter.com/PasspoRadar so PLEASE leave a link back to that twitter if you take these:

Last night's conference: There are 8 candidates to be PASSPO members. I think they'll have a voting system through tickets in CDs. They want the group to sell 100k and they'll be getting rid of the mileage system that they use that affects the fans who go to their lives. PASSPO will be performing at Nakano Sun Plaza on 3/31 which is their biggest venue yet where they MIGHT announce the new members.

All of the above hasn't been properly confirmed yet and it's all just plans for PASSPO that people from UMJ talked about last night to fans.

i think passpo can add one or two members but nothing more... oh and the most important thing i think they need t do is "divide & conquer" what's the point of having 10 girls if they'll go as one to every show and performance??? i say the less important venues they go with half the members so they can rotate and rest better because no doubt at that pace only more injuries will come.

Kiss=Suki is counted as a DVD single so they're calling this upcoming one the 3rd single.

Besides the upcoming 3rd major single (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/3rd-single/) from PASSPO, here's something that's even more exciting...!!

As fans know, there has never been an official release of any PASSPO concerts on DVD. The closest we got was the digest version included in the  LE B version of their recent CHECK-IN album (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/check-in/).

WELL...

PASSPO will be releasing a DVD with special shows from 2011 (and 1 from 2010) on the same day as their upcoming 3rd major single (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/3rd-single/)!!!

I've compiled all the information that is out so far here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/2012-03-07-20102011-concert-dvd/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/2012-03-07-20102011-concert-dvd/)

I AM SO EXCITED. FINALLY! I have waited for something like this for nearly 2 years.  :cry: :heart:

I wonder when they will properly reveal the candidates. Although I thought it was funny how predia recently just randomly announced two new members, I kind of prefer not knowing the girls that don't get chosen. It's too bad Makoto doesn't have a twin sister, then they wouldn't need an audition... unless her twin was really evil.

Edit: ^ Thank you. I've been waiting for something like that for 5 years!! And I pre-ordered the Makoto, Shiori, and Kaho versions of their third single :wub:.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on January 15, 2012, 08:29:58 AM
^  :lol: at the versions you pre-ordered. :p

I thought it was a bit weird to send Sachiko off the day before her birthday but I guess that's one way to make a graduation even more special? :p

I'm not 100% on this since I only saw 1 tweet mentioning it but all 8 candidates have been assigned colours. You guys can find out what colours the girls have been given here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/8-candidates-announced-20120109/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/8-candidates-announced-20120109/)
None of the girls got given any of the greens though but with Kaho gone that makes sense. No one has Sako's colour. :O I thought maybe this means the original PASSPO members are mentors to the girls who have their same colours but nothing has confirmed this theory of mine.

The candidates performed today and yesterday at PASSPO's secret live shows for PAL members only. All the tweets and blog entries I've seen have been calling the girls cute and some have even found their oshi out of them. It must be easy to win over a wota's heart by being a cute girl.  :nervous

I'm really excited for both the upcoming single and especially the DVD!  :heart: The single was recorded without Kaho so it's the first and probably last time we'll get a 9-membered PASSPO releasing a single. I'm hoping all the girls get at least 1 solo line because I don't want it to be mainly focused on Shiori and Ai. D:
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on January 15, 2012, 10:09:06 AM
I'm glad the fans like the candidates. *Sometimes* the really hardcore fans of a group can be a little drunk on haterade and hater-tots. And I like your theory about the colors.

I think they should let their choreographer Natsumi join the group as a temporary member. Just as a "thank you". If she asked it probably went something like this:

Natsumi: Hey everyone, I happen to know someone who would be perfect for the group!
Makoto: My twin sister?
Natsumi: No, I'm talking about me. Can I audition? My parents said it would be ok.
Aki-G (PASSPO's producer): No. You don't look like Mako-chan at all.
Natsumi: Aww... can I at least record the song as an honorary 10th member?
Aki-G: It's up to Mako-chan.
Makoto: No way, this is my best chance for a solo line!
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on January 16, 2012, 01:38:32 AM
^ I am 100% for her to join PASSPO as the 10th member! She's really close with all the girls and since she's their choreographer, she wouldn't have any problem with the dances. She doesn't look 'old' at all either. We must tell UMJ this somehow.  XD

Now that more information is out..

PASSPO's next single:

Same day release is the 2010~2011 concerts + MV compilation DVD: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/20102011-concert-dvd/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/20102011-concert-dvd/)

Post by: PASSPO on January 16, 2012, 01:49:27 AM
Sources didn't mention the concerts being digests (but they haven't said they're full either). If they are full, I wonder how they're fitting everything onto one disc since each show lasts around 45mins+ and that's not including the MVs with the making-ofs.

i was thinking the other day that maybe they'll just troll everyon ewith the new members tale and start a new group with the 8 selected lolololol i don't think Passpo staff is desperate for adding new members but for some reason when the group is the most estable and in his best moment is the time fro graduations, new members or solo acts... anyways maybe they'll add 2 new members and start promoting the group in blocks of 5 each :V

I know some fans including myself think that too. UMJ are putting a lot into the 8 girls so it would be a real waste if only 1 girl gets added into PASSPO. I think they'll either add 1 of the new girls into the group and form a new group with the rest, or not add any new members and create a new group with the 8. I hope they really will make a new group with the 8 girls because they have grown on me.  :wub:

I think it's because she's been wearing glasses more often lately (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/nerd.gif). And I love how she said, "Light blue and black". Naomin was going to hand her the script, but Anna was like, "Girl, I can memorize four words!" (Natsumi couldn't though :) ).

Lol, it's been a while since "Weird Makoto" made an appearance.

^ "Weird Makoto"

About their first two days: Idol group sales always fluctuate up and down during the week. Remember CHECK-IN, it went 11 -> 15 -> 18 -> 20 -> 23 and then disappeared. Ok that was a bad example :(.

It has been more than 6 months since their last single though, so maybe some of their fans just didn't realize they released a new single. Other groups have also gotten much more popular since then. PASSPO was the "it" group last year, and now it's Super Girls.

Anyone going to their event tomorrow and on the 12th ? I am going alone, kinda clueless on what to do except bringing my still sealed CDs...

Post by: qwiksXnd on March 09, 2012, 10:47:34 PM
Cool, hope you have fun. It's kind of a weird experience going to an event by yourself, but I think you'll notice that a lot of people at events are actually alone also (it's usually the concerts where friends go together). I would recommend getting to the venue as early as possible, especially if it's during the weekends when trains don't run as frequently and may not stop at the station you need to get off at.

Are you going to the March 31st concert? I was really considering going to that concert, but I'm going to just try for something in the summer.

Edit:
Day 3
#7
Analysis: PASSPO fans reacted very favorably to Weird Makoto's return.

Oricon weekly sales ranking for PASSPO's new single: #17 with 11,205 copies sold.

From 2ch, a comparison between the first week sales of this single and ViVi Natsu (their previous single):

Post by: qwiksXnd on March 14, 2012, 07:23:06 AM
That's shocking. That's YGA and Fudanjuku level. Maybe the single will sell more over time leading up to their concert at the end of the month... but I don't think there is any reason to believe that.

For random reasons I'm not really conscious of, I wasn't interested in this single... even before I watched the horrible PV that made no sense (I still don't get why they're running away from Naomin, Yukki, and Natsumi. Why are they making fun of the least popular members? And most importantly why does Naomin run like an old lady?). I ended up buying just the normal "ugly cover" edition ... because it came with a poster and I've been conditioned to buy most things PASSPO-related.

Without sounding emo, I think a lot of the PASSPO "magic" is gone. I noticed this at the November concert, everyone was subdued compared to the July concert. The fans were acting like rabid psychopaths at the July concert, but like brain-dead zombies at the November concert. When CHECK-IN came out a month later and sold horribly, it just confirmed that something was up with the fanbase. Albums sell less than singles, but CHECK-IN should have sold way more than it did. The album was amazing and barely sold more than Idoling's last album. 

One of the reasons I think they've dropped in popularity:
With the exception of Anna... none of the members have improved since they joined Universal. Out of the "talented" members, only Anna has leveled-up. The shy ones are still as shy as they've been since day one (Why is it that almost two years after their debut the only members that talk during their MCs are Morishi, Anna, and Sako? Kaho used to be in this category, but no one took over for her. And the two most popular members are practically invisible at their concerts).

I think there are other reasons (related to their management), but I'll keep that rant to myself.

Fortunately Misa is going to be their miracle member.

Post by: PASSPO on March 14, 2012, 07:40:03 AM
It really makes me sad and I feel bad for the girls too since they must be blaming themselves for these sales, but they've been working so hard. They've been holding lives and other mini events along with working at CD stores the past week to promote the single.. I know a lot of Japanese fans have lost interest or stopped being obsessed with PASSPO with Kaho's graduation and the shock announcement of these 8 new girls we know nothing about (at least back then). A few Japanese wota I follow no longer tweet or blog about PASSPO anymore too. :(

In other PASSPO news..

Tomorrow a 300 limited DVD will go on sale. More details here: http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/passpo-dvd/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/passpo-dvd/)
(http://passpo.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/1330406621181_imgbig.jpg)
300 limited copies! This is outrageous. This cannot be beneficial to the group or fans at all! They also made those two 1,000 limited DVDs at their Zepp Tour. Why put a limit on these DVDs? If they were widely distributed, many fans and not just from Japan would be buying them which is not a bad thing.

PASSPO + bikinis

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/th_mmsdonotwant.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v387/qwiksXnd/?action=view&current=mmsdonotwant.jpg)

I really think their management messed up their image. The ViVi Natsu PV, the three image videos, all the pervy gravure stuff Makoto does, their calendar, and the Young Magazine/WP photo shoots are unnecessary. They have a girl fanbase that I doubt is into any of that, and honestly I don't think most guys want PASSPO doing that either. I still remember when they debuted the VN PV and fans were upset that they sold out and did a bikini video. And why does a PASSPO documentary have to feature them wearing bikinis on the cover? It's like someone is intentionally sabotaging the group.

And I feel bad for the girls too. At the time when they are showing weakness, their two main rival groups are selling a lot more.

PASSPO got popular because they were so different from the other groups. They are a lot less different now. And if Universal keeps trying to make them more mainstream, I think they are going to continue to lose fans.

I'm kind of a broken record when it comes to this, but they need to release a real concert dvd. Super Girls has their second concert dvd out in a few weeks. They've done like 8 concerts, and they already have two dvds. Afilia Saga East released a video of their first concert. Idoling has released every single one of their concerts on dvd. Why can't the best live group release one?

Sorry for lying about not ranting.

If they were widely distributed, many fans and not just from Japan would be buying them which is not a bad thing.

This. I think part of AKB48's success is the amount of freebies with each release. Getting free photos encourages collecting, trading and getting to know the group. This results in a stronger fanbase and better sales. In other words, make stuff easily available in large quantities!

In addition, AKB48 sold a mook in 2009 at a cheap price of 1000 yen which really helped their market position. My problem with most of these newer or lesser known idol groups are the high merchandise prices. Afilia Saga's DVDs and PBs are insanely expensive. I understand they have to break even somehow and that it's hard to gain fans, but wallet raping the existing fans isn't the way forward. Selling a lot of something cheap can still result into profit, plus it makes more fans happier and it attracts new fans more easily. No casual/semi-interested J-pop fan is going to buy a 7K DVD.


they need to release a real concert dvd. Super Girls has their second concert dvd out in a few weeks. They've done like 8 concerts, and they already have two dvds. Afilia Saga East released a video of their first concert. Idoling has released every single one of their concerts on dvd. Why can't the best live group release one?

This. Regardless of who is the best live group, I have never seen a proper Passpo concert and would love to have a proper DVD release.

This. OK, some of them are better suited for it then others, but I really enjoyed watching their 'Passpo no Po' IV release (despite the wacky editing).

lol i think Afilia Saga are the only ones that sell insanely expensive stuff and yet their fanbase is a bit bigger nowadays... with passpo i'm not sure why they aren't selling more but maybe they aren't promoting in the right places? also if they want them to go mainstream then they should promote like AKB with all the girls half naked in magazines but seriously guess japane already have enough gravure units out there... anyways it' time for them to release a DVD with their 1st one-man live or anything with proper rockin passpo flying (like what they should have do with graduation... just saying)


do you think all this silly videos in youtube will help at leaast a bit?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on March 14, 2012, 08:17:14 PM
Differences in opinion and perspective is to be expected between hardcore and casual fans. When a groups first single sells 43,000 and their second sells 43,000, and their third sells 11,000, it's reflective of a significant change in the hardcore fanbase.

do you think all this silly videos in youtube will help at leaast a bit?

I think they should put a little more thought into what they are doing. The videos are so random and make them look like an after-school club just messing around (while in reality they are extremely hard working). There's nothing wrong with them looking like dorks, but they should balance it with content that shows other aspects of their personalities. In comparison, I think Predia's channel has much more interesting content (rehearsal videos, concert promos, new song previews, Akane and Rumina singing random songs, choreography lessons, etc).

From the For What It's Worth Department:

Passpo has seemed to lose a little of the big Mo' (momentum) but spring and summer is coming up and concert season can rev up the fan base as well as attract new fans. 

There was a time when Momoiro Clover released a PV that really pissed off a lot of fans- they were licking ice cream cones, suggesting far less innocent themes, and fan reaction was "this is creeping me out".............Momoclo has since rebounded with some fantastic PV's and lives and are picking up a lot of momentum lately.

Passpo has got a lot of skill, and a unique concept, so the seeds of future (further) success are there. Not sure if any group for a long time will approach the saturation level that the AKB48 has reached, but  not quite reaching that point doesn't mean other groups can't have success in their own right. (and being wildly popular does not make AKB48 a bad group)

Looking forward to the continued growth and success for Passpo, as it is indeed a group of hardworking, beautiful, and talented members!

"Aipon: I think our efforts as 9 members since Musshu left have been acknowledged, so I'm happy. It's because the candidates were there that we were able to grow and will be able to work even harder as 9."

At the encore:
* PASSPO performed a new song called 'Popstar?'
* Ai played the piano to 'Sakura Iro'. While they sang, cherry blossom petals fell onto the stage.

I hope the girls weren't humiliated like the Morning Musume candidates from that failed audition.

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on April 01, 2012, 12:46:37 AM
Last month I wrote an entry in my cheesy PASSPO blog about the candidates: "After watching their debut performance, I actually thought of the infamous Morning Musume audition – the one where none of the finalists were chosen."

I didn't really think it would happen though, just because that can look really messed up and backfire on a group. I wonder if this means the candidates are going to be released from the agency. It seems like it would be an awkward relationship now. "Sorry you didn't make the group, but you can still work at Noodol Cafe". The only way it would have worked out is if it was announced that although none of the girls would join PASSPO, they would form a new group instead (this idea has been suggested before, I'm just repeating it as a possibility). It doesn't seem like that happened though... but if it did I'll just edit all of this out, hehe.

Ai's tweet is interesting because it seems that she is admitting that management gave them an ultimatum to prove the group can exist as a 9 member unit, although they were going to proceed with an audition. If that was the case, the "audition" should have been behind the scenes. From day one they made it clear that the vote wouldn't be the final say in which girl/girls would join, but I think it was obvious fans were supposed to believe that at least one would join. The audition and fan voting seems a lot more disingenuous now.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: shurastriker on April 01, 2012, 01:31:17 AM
mmmm i was thinking a bit more about it and certainly i agree with the ones that say it wasn't time for new members but maybe the reason i was dissapointed that no one joined the group is because they forced the fans to buy the release in order to vote, then that vote have a cost and if nothing happens then it feels ankward... so yeah i agree with @qwiks that this should have been behind the scenes because if you remember those failed momusu auditions it forced to keep the search until koharu appeared but in this case is more like oh well no one joins, thanks for nothing.

Is my phone messed up or are there a bunch of He-Man videos in this thread... or is this like a pre-April Fools thing. Hmm, I wonder if the election was an April Fools joke.

I think once they decided on the cd ballot, they forced themselves to choose at least one member. Anyone who bought multiple copies of PASSPO's last single is going to feel burned. Although based on their sales, I don't think anyone did *zing*

I don't really know if this will damage the group, but I think distributing free ballots to fans at their concerts and events would have been a better way to go about it, regardless of whether they chose anyone or not.

Ok, I'm done ranting XD. *watches the He-Man video new SUPER GiRLS concert*

Hi there! :)

The girls were at Shibuya station yesterday and were doing a campaign against perverts/molesters on trains, they were handing out flyers and tissues. I've been looking for an article online about it but the only place I've found with information is that video and the photos from their blogs. :( I wish it was reported since it's a great cause.

Yeah, I hope some media will report it soon.

1st, I ripped the DVD into iso with DVDfab, then from the iso, I encoded each video with handbrake into mp4 ( or anything you like )

I would prefer something open source but right now DVDfab is the one which works :)

Ok, pm'ed you my mobile number  ;) Let me know if you didnt get my pm.

I stumbled into your acchan48 forum. Then i browse through the AKBxJKT48 concert thread, and saw all your names in there xD BTW during the AKBxJKT concert i also got the pocari sweat ticket lol.  :oops:

And just a small note...when acchan announced that she wants to graduate, i was doing the Passpo group shot event lol....was not aware about it until i reach back to my hostel that time  :nervous

Ok enough with 48 talk, lets go back to Passpo...FYI, there is 2 version of Attention Please Photobook. One is visual side, and one is character side. The one i got is the visual side, so please do take note...i didnt buy the character side ver because that time i couldnt find it....

I wish they'll release 10+ versions just like Shoujo Hikou or Vivi natsu. But I guess not.

It's gonna be tough to rank in Oricon with only 3 versions  :huhuh
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on April 19, 2012, 03:16:15 AM
When they released multiple versions of a single, I only ever got 1 version but this time I want all 3. Ahh.  :nervous

I am pretty sure the famous musician will be Marty Friedman, but the person hasn't been named yet. It makes sense for it to be Marty though, he loves idols and has worked with MomoClo Z and BABYMETAL in recent times.

Post by: infzer0 on April 19, 2012, 07:49:32 AM
Marty friedman and passpo? That's what i'd like to see   XD And yay for new single!

Now that you mention it...they only have 3 versions last single instead of 10 compared to Shoujo Hikou/Vivi Natsu...maybe thats why the last single they're doing very bad?

But yah most of the time i only order 1 single...more than enough for me. Im not really the type of guy who would spend money on multiple singles; i rather save the money, next time go japan use it to see their concerts and buy goods  :oops:

Obviously yes, and Kimi wa single only have 2 versions.

I'm not sure why they stopped each member versions like their 1st 2 singles. Since it's actually a good idea to make them being noticed as a rookie group.

Beside, I think their 3rd single title is too long  :nervous

A low quality digest video from a flight, ranking PASSPO's best 5 rare songs:
ぱすぽ☆輝け!レア曲ベスト5ダイジェスト (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzcOhb2-iNo#ws)
5. Hallelujah
4. Muteki GIRL
3. Hareru yo
2. See You Again
1. Hakana

Weird how they consider 3 new songs as rare ones :p I wish they put Sakura Iro as #1.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on April 23, 2012, 08:43:09 AM
That's interesting that they did that, although it doesn't seem very accurate. It's kind of strange that they would talk about their rare songs, but then leave out the #1 most obvious rare song. It's like they are trolling Sakura Iro. Sakura Iro is so rare they forgot it exists.

I agree with Hallelujah though. Natsu Sora Dash was the b-side, but it became way more popular. I like Hallelujah though, I kind of wish they would retire Let it Go. And also Shojou Hiko, because d-lugging is too dangerous. I don't think Hareru yo and See You Again are rare at all. I guess Hakana is rare because that song and Starting Over were the last songs from Check In that their choreographer worked on.

You were totally lucky :). I was surprised when I saw the song list at your blog. They don't perform it often. For instance at last years Tokyo Idol Festival, they performed 5 different times over the 2 days and never did Sakura Iro. I've never seen them perform it live either. Since they pair up during the song, was Aipon by herself?

Why not? I think its nice to him to post the photo haha.

Plus i think passpo is not really strict with "no photography with random people" rule unlike akb...somemore this one is staff member ba....let them share all they want XD. Also, that time in jap i saw alot fans taking pix of them doing rehearsal using DSRL like its normal lol. And the First Wing photobook also got photos of them with some France fans at the airport during their Paris trip. I think they're much closer to the fans, thats why i like them  :D

Anna's hat XD. When she bought it she probably asked "Do you have this hat in purple?".

Yesterday they went to Venice Beach, which is one of the the most ghetto beaches in California. The beach is extremely popular with tourists though because of it's notoriety. I was kind of hoping they wouldn't go there, because even though it's an "interesting" experience, overall I think it gives a negative impression of L.A. I guess every country has areas that are really popular with tourists, but the locals avoid.

^ Anna is so gorgeous.  :wub:

@infzer0: It's a pretty huge spoiler for the PV since it shows the girls' new outfits as well as a major part of the set.  :nervous Plus he tweeted it the same day it was filmed and the single won't be out until June.

PASSPO are having their last dinner in LA right now. I wish they could have stayed longer. :(

OMG GUYS BIG NEWS

PASSPO's candidates (http://passpo.wordpress.com/8-candidates-announced-20120109/) will be debuting in a group of their own called 'palet'! They'll start doing activities/promotions in June!

Even though I knew this would happen (or really hoped so inside), I'm so happy this is finally happening! I grew SUPER SUPER SUPER attached to all the girls!

Tell me more about the Passpo Festival

A few details from the schedule at their website:

PASSPO Fes @ Hihiya Outdoor Music Hall
When: Sunday, Jul 8, 2012

There are two shows: 13:00 and 17:30. There will also be a handshake event, probably after each part.

Tickets are included with the dvd version of their next single "Next Flight". More info:
http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/next-flight/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/next-flight/)

Tokyo Idol Festival lineup was just announced and is on August 4-5, so kind of makes me rethink going in July. I think you went to TIF last year right?

edit: just thinking about PASSPO's festival, wouldn't it be cool if after the concert, each girl operated her own booth (like the type you'd see at a real Japanese festival). Each girl would design their own booth and set up their shop at different areas of the venue. Morishi could operate one of those cliche goldfish booths (since her color is yellow), Mio could do a caricature booth (although I don't know if they do those in Japan), Makoto (or Sako) could have a takoyaki booth and call them Makoyaki (or Sakoyaki) or they could both have one and pretend they're rivals, Natsumi could sell PASSPO ice cream, and since Aipon and Yukki are the leaders, they could sell PASSPO merchandise. Anna is too cool to set up a booth though.

I'm all for rock and all for pretty girls in cute costumes, but somehow this song hasn't really grabbed me yet.
Maybe after some more plays and listening to the full version. All the key elements are definitely there, they look great.

What do you guys think about the musicians line-up?

They're all well established musicians, but imo they lack a bit of appeal. They're all good, that's not the problem, but most of them are either session players or members from ancient bands. From Passpo's perspective it may have been more beneficial to collaborate with more popular/younger musicians? I mean, I doubt Cinderella fans are going to care about Passpo. It won't give them an extra push in the western market. But maybe that wasn't the idea behind this at all, I'm just speculating here. Just thought the choice of musicians was a bit odd.

i know no one of the backup band members... i read one works with shakira? i was like wtf shakira have her own band? lol... song sounds nice but can't decide how nice until a full listen
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on May 21, 2012, 07:22:05 PM
Hmm... I don't really have an opinion about the musicians they collaborated with since I don't listen to "metal" and I'm not familiar with those bands. I guess I would have preferred they work with L.A. punk groups, since they are more relevant to me. But this is all meant to appeal to their Japanese fans. It's definitely not about the western market, because there isn't a western market for PASSPO. They didn't have to go to L.A. I'm sure there is an airplane graveyard in Japan they could have filmed at, and plenty of Japanese rock musicians they could have worked with, but that wasn't the image they were going for. If they had more resources or time I'm sure they could have gotten a better lineup, since I do feel a lot of American rock groups are fascinated by Japanese pop culture, but Universal Japan either didn't have connections to them, or they already knew who they could work with.

I'm just glad they rebounded from Kimi wa Boku wo Suki ni naru. Next Flight is a massive improvement over their last single.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Datalanche on May 22, 2012, 03:17:58 AM
If there's one thing I love as much as Japanese pop music, it's classic American rock music. Maybe that's why I've consistently enjoyed Passpo so damn much. They definitely have an American-esque rock sound to most of their music. It's evident their producers care about how the instrumentals sound. I think this is something that takes a backburner in the idol realm some of, if not a lot of the time.

However, this... wow. Instantly recognizable names for me working with an idol group I already love. I don't think it's a stretch for me to say this is probably one of my favorite J-Pop song in a long time, and that's just going off the preview. I'm totally smitten, definitely buying.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: PASSPO on May 22, 2012, 03:28:12 AM
I think it's better that they used older [ex-]band musicians from well known groups (Guns N' Roses, Cinderella) than current ones. After their anniversary shows on Sunday, there were a lot of tweets and blog entries regarding the musicians. A lot of the ones I read were speculations on who the musicians that collaborated on this single were (this is before staff announced who). A lot of people were saying Guns N' Roses and were sure Slash would be one of them, as well as other bands including.. Cinderella!

Once the band members were announced, there was one blog entry that really caught my eye. A man born in the 70s blogged about how he really loves the new song/PV and how it brings him back to his youthful days. He said how he remembers when he was a teenager that worked a bunch of part-time jobs just to save up money to buy the latest American metal and rock CDs. That really made me smile because I'm sure he's not the only person who remembers their younger days listening to these bands after finding about PASSPO's new single.

(I'm really not good with words so the past two paragraphs probably don't make as much sense as they do in my head :nervous)

This single is definitely a step up from their last one, which I thought of as a 'throwaway single' anyway. The purpose of their last single was really to get people to vote for girls - Which didn't work out the way management wanted. Fans don't want new members (unless Kaho comes back). They love PASSPO as they are and they showed this by not buying as many copies of their last single, as much as that hurts for the girls.

I think they will be releasing two other singles this year where they fly to other countries for "metal" themed tunes with other metal/rock musicians. I really want them to go to Finland/Norway/Sweden/Germany, but I don't know how likely that would be. They'll probably go to England at least.

What I find funny is how the band members in their PV are not the musicians who recorded for this single, lol.  :P

I can say this is definitely the case for me. I couldn't have cared less about voting unless there was an option for "keep as-is". Passpo is fine just the way it is. :)

Interesting, so PASSPO x Iron Maiden is a possibility. Hopefully they don't ignore Iceland. Everyone does though. It's always, "We'll go to Iceland next year".

All these talks about Next Flight are interesting. I myself grew up with American heavy metal music. And seriously, the song reminds me a lot to the old time, even better, instead of the band members wearing makeup and looks like a girls, here we get real cute dancing girls. Just perfect.

I'm curious, who's actually the man behind Passpo's concept.

Anyways, lately I can't stop watching their "Odotte mita" videos on YouTube! I like learning idol dances in general and I always pay extra attention to idol choreographies. Passpo are awesome dancers and it's really enjoyable to watch them dancing! When I had the oportunity to see them at JapanExpo last year it was like they were flying on stage xD! They have a lot of energy!

ahhh http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/pa-su-po-bluray/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/pa-su-po-bluray/) I don't have anything that plays blu-ray discs ;______;

PASSPO will be releasing their 3 gravure DVDs from late last year as 1 blu-ray release! (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/aff/click.cgi/PytJTGW7Lok/3614/A256987/detailview.html?KEY=LPBR-1)

Passpo has an event on 2012-10-08 at Zepp Tokyo called "Passpo☆WINGFes"

Anybody know:
- What kind of event?
- How to enter?
- What time?
- Anything else?

I know where it is:

But I'd appreciate any further details. Thanks  :)

"PASSPO" (the forum member), correct me if I'm wrong about anything XD

The limited edition version of Wing includes a free ticket for "Wing Fes". I *think* getting a ticket is as simple as that. Their website and blog currently don't have any more details, but it will include a concert and handshake event. This is the third "Fes", so it should be relatively similar to the previous ones.

The first one, "Next Flight Fes", was at Hibiya Amphitheater, and had a part 1 and part 2, so you would have had to purchase both limited edition versions to attend the full event (each part was a couple hours long and included a concert and handshake event). "Natsuzora Hanabi Fes" was at Yomiuri Land on 8-26 (since it was at an amusement park, there was a special entrance for attendees so you didn't have to buy admission to the park). This event was just one part, and was from 2-6 PM. There was a concert followed by a handshake event. Aipon blogged the setlist http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20120827.html. (http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20120827.html.) I think the concert portion was 45 minutes and included about 10 songs, and their usual MC and "corners".
 
Someone at another forum actually went to this Fes (not a lot of info provided though)
http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-the-only-pop-group-licensed-to-fly-spaceships/page__st__110 (http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-the-only-pop-group-licensed-to-fly-spaceships/page__st__110)

Their blog will have more information as it gets closer to the event. Are you thinking about going?

Thanks for the info!  :thumbup

With a bit of luck I'll be in the area around that time, so I'm trying to figure out which groups have events early-mid October.
I wasn't planning on heading to Odaiba again, but this event may be worth it.
It sounds a lot longer and more pro than the average idol group release event.
Plus I wouldn't mind seeing Ai  XD

Not sure if this was posted before, but they released a Blu-ray (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=LPBR-1)!
I think this contains those three recent Limited Edition IVs: Pa, Su and Po?
Well over three hours, region free and a reasonable 3900 yen!

Not sure if this was posted before, but they released a Blu-ray (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=LPBR-1)!
I think this contains those three recent Limited Edition IVs: Pa, Su and Po?
Well over three hours, region free and a reasonable 3900 yen!

Just received my copy of the Blu-Ray from YesAsia, yesterday. So far, I've only watched the first hour but can confirm that it is region free, as it plays with no problems on my player.

"PASSPO" (the forum member), correct me if I'm wrong about anything XD

The limited edition version of Wing includes a free ticket for "Wing Fes". I *think* getting a ticket is as simple as that. Their website and blog currently don't have any more details, but it will include a concert and handshake event. This is the third "Fes", so it should be relatively similar to the previous ones.

The first one, "Next Flight Fes", was at Hibiya Amphitheater, and had a part 1 and part 2, so you would have had to purchase both limited edition versions to attend the full event (each part was a couple hours long and included a concert and handshake event). "Natsuzora Hanabi Fes" was at Yomiuri Land on 8-26 (since it was at an amusement park, there was a special entrance for attendees so you didn't have to buy admission to the park). This event was just one part, and was from 2-6 PM. There was a concert followed by a handshake event. Aipon blogged the setlist http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20120827.html. (http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20120827.html.) I think the concert portion was 45 minutes and included about 10 songs, and their usual MC and "corners".
 
Someone at another forum actually went to this Fes (not a lot of info provided though)
http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-the-only-pop-group-licensed-to-fly-spaceships/page__st__110 (http://forum.nihongogo.com/topic/5101-passpo-the-only-pop-group-licensed-to-fly-spaceships/page__st__110)

Their blog will have more information as it gets closer to the event. Are you thinking about going?

I'll be in Nagoya just in time for one of the events. Was thinking of hitting it up. Do you have any idea how strict they are on the ticketing side of things. It seems in the fine print that you will need to bring the invoice and some identification to proove your identity, and you can't bring along friends, so I'm assuming you can't buy copies for other people either. Getting the invoice, if at all, in my name would be difficult when working with deputy services too no.

Oh, are you from the blog supermerlion?

I didn't realize there was an event in Nagoya, but the invoice and identification requirement sound similar to the SUPER☆GiRLS 2-shot event also in November. I've found that staff are usually lenient with foreigners, but if you use a deputy service, maybe you can ask them to include a letter in Japanese explaining you used them as a proxy because the Universal store doesn't ship overseas. I can't imagine if you buy the cd, show the invoice, and your passport that they would deny you access.

http://store.universal-music.co.jp/fs/artist/passpo/d2cj1008 (http://store.universal-music.co.jp/fs/artist/passpo/d2cj1008)
So I guess that would be the edition you would buy. The fine print does sound a little strict though. I think they tweeted that one of their other events allows 2 people to go to an event with one ticket, but that may have been just for the Zepp Tokyo one. Or maybe I'm confusing the tweet with something completely different.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Supermerlion on September 24, 2012, 06:58:57 AM
Yup. I finally found someone who could order it through my name. Hopefully that works out. Sadly the 2-shot for SG is over now so it's too late to buy any tickets for that, though I'm not sure I would want to pay that much. Gonna go ahead and try going for their normal handshake event instead in November.

In the end I didn't go to WingFest. I was broken from other events the days before and I didn't have energy to go to Odaiba again. At least it's cool they're getting some proper attention. I talked to some random idol fans and they all seemed to know Passpo so that's cool.

ok, let me do a little introduction here: I`m new to this Passpo fandom. to tell the truth, a not so long time ago I had no interest at all in them, basically because I thought all this concept of them being flight attendants was pretty stupid.  :lol:

but the time has passed, saw them live in some festivals and started jigging to their music, with this rock vein and all. and more important, discovered this beauty called Nachu. she resembles my beloved Sato Natsuki from AKB, so it was love at first sight.  :fap oh, and I heard that Uhae song that is freaking addictive.

...

happened that I bought their One World album and... god dammit, it is awesome!!!  :bow: the second best idol group album of the year to me (just behind BiS`s Idol is Dead). loved it specially from the eighth track ahead. it`s a shame it`s not selling well (poor marketing?) cuz it`s really good. it`s not so "idolish" but keeps the "essence" if you what I mean. now I only expect that they don`t sell so many merchandise or I`ll go bankrupt with one more group to follow.  :lol:

Post by: tsutomo on November 20, 2012, 06:57:08 AM
hello!  duh my memory is not that good but I saw them twice till now. I`m pretty sure one was at Tokyo Idol Festival, but the other... maybe it was in that Idolnation? I remember seeing them earlier this year, but can`t find in my notes an idol group festival during the first months of this year. :k-crazy:

well, anyway the important one was at TIF, where I got to notice Nachu`s presence (she lost her shoe during a kick movement ROFL) and heard Uhae.  :cow:

is someone here going to attend their one-man in december 28th? will be my first experience in one handshaking event of the group and so I`m really anxious.  :drool:

Post by: qwiksXnd on November 20, 2012, 08:39:06 PM
Cool, I thought maybe you went to one of the three festival concerts they're going to release on dvd. I saw them at TIF too (Smile Garden, the main stage, and then Sky Stage).

I'm thinking about going to predia's Christmas concert on the 24th and SUPER GiRLS concert on the 25th, but I'm not sure about PASSPO's flight. It would already be weird missing my friends and family on Christmas, so I don't want to go overboard. I'm still pricing tickets though. It would be cool if PASSPO does 2-shots after the concert also, but I don't think they've been doing them lately.

well, it would be marvelous if they do 2 shots, but I`m happy with whatever they make. don`t even know all the girls` names yet, so I can`t demand things.  :nervous actually I only hope they don`t do handshakings in an AKB "fucking ten badly cloked seconds" style.  :)

I'm excited, I'm always a sucker for sad love songs - especially sakura themed ones because those kinds of idol singles are always guaranteed to be sad. And I love sappy things that make me sap. :P It'll be interesting to hear how the song sounds considering the musical theme lol..

Also I don't really understand why they felt the need to officially change the name when fans refer to them as "PASSPO" a lot anyway online. Maybe because predia and palet write theirs in English so it makes it 'neater'? I probably explained that badly. :P

PASSPO performed two new songs tonight. 'Sakura Komachi' and 'NO.1 BOY' which might be a b-side?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on December 28, 2012, 04:10:42 PM
I liked both songs, specially the beside (?) "No.1 Boy" that has a intro that reminds A LOT "Smells Like Teen Spirit". "Sakura komachi" is a great song to perform wotagei.  :twothumbs

they sang for the first time live the song "Kimi iro no samba" (if I understood it correctly). I like it a lot, despite being very different from their usual sound. and I like it even more now, since Nachu has a part in it.  :heart:

and this leads me to a question: is it my impression or the group really has two "types" of girls, the ones that sing more and the ones that usually only dance (sacochii, nachu, yukii and annya)? I`m asking this because so far I`ve only seen Nachu have solo parts in "kimi iro no samba" and "material girl". it`s hard when you have so few opportunities to shout your oshimen`s name.  :(

and another question, to the folks who already participated in handshaking events of the group: do they always limit the number of tickets you can get (today there was a limit of three, no matter how much you spent)?? this sucked hard, specially because if they did like other groups do, I would have received enough tickets to talk with all the girls.  :(
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on December 29, 2012, 02:44:20 AM
^^ Thanks for all the info :).

^ Awesome, glad you were able to go. For Tokyo concerts they have a limit of three tickets, for shows further away like in Sapporo or Osaka they will increase the ticket limit to five. I think it depends on how many people they expect at the concert. Unfortunately if they didn't have a ticket limit the events would last a really long time. That would be really hard on some members, like Mako-tee who gets really sleepy after the concert. Their handshake/2 shot events go way past midnight if they schedule one after a night show. My other favorite group SUPER GiRLS doesn't do anything after their concerts (except maybe a high-touch if you buy a certain item), so I guess that's why it doesn't bother me too much. The goods they were selling looked pretty cool though (they were on their blog), I liked the towel, the bracelets, and buttons.

Did you go to predia or palet's free show? Did they open for PASSPO, or did they just have their separate free concert?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on December 29, 2012, 03:22:00 AM
you know, I don't think that time or getting tired is really a problem since 1- they did the handshaking before the show (what I found strange, generally it's done after...) 2- they had the whole day for it. the schedule was

11 am = goods selling start
2 pm = palet free show
3:30 pm = predia free show
3 ~ 4:30 pm = passpo handshaking (fuck! I wanted to see Predia's live but it was being done in the same moment)
4:30 ~ 6 pm = palet and predia handshaking/sign

so they could very well give the handshaking more time and allow people to have more tickets.  :thumbdown: I'll compare with Afilia, that is a group that is doing concerts in similar venues recently. (shibuya kokaido = 2000 people. stellar ball = 1800 people) they never limit the number of tickets you can get, do always at least two activities (like group 2 shot and handshaking) and do it after the concert. yep,  it really ends up late, but nothing to really concern about.

the show was awesome, but aside that point, other thing that bugged me was the huge delay (almost half an hour) for it to start, because the staff were really slow to let us enter... (detail: it was raining and we were outside the venue) well, it could have been worst. they could have started without us there.  :panic:

well, being optimistic, this limitation will help me spend few money in the next concerts.  :roll:

on a side note, I'm starting to feel sorry for Nachu. I'm giving her bad luck, incredible. at TIF she lost her shoe, now she had problems with her mic during "Uhae" and had to run to backstage and return just near the end of it.  :(

Post by: qwiksXnd on December 29, 2012, 09:16:29 AM
That's too bad about the schedule. Whoever was in charge didn't put a lot of thought into it. They could have moved palet and predia's lives to earlier in the day, or scheduled PASSPO's handshake after their concert (like they normally do), or kept that schedule and moved predia's concert after PASSPOs. Predia is amazing and they could use more fans. Sucks about the rain too. I also had to wait in the rain at PASSPO's Anniversary concert last year. That actually made it more memorable, but I remember thinking how unorganized and inefficient their staff is.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on December 29, 2012, 12:10:07 PM
you know, for me it's difficult to make comparisons with past shows of the group and so, since I'm a new passenger in the flight... but I can tell about the experiences I had with other groups (raging from AKB to PPP! Pixion) and comparing with them, I gotta say Passpo has one of the worst staff/management I have saw till now. I'm very critic regarding AKB events cuz they make BILLIONS of yens and by doing so they should offer to us, fans, top quality events. Passpo of course is way lower than that level, but is indeed a very well established group with a good amount of followers. they surely make a decent money out of it, so I expected a more well organized show/event. the delay, the schedule... ah! another things that happened and denote poor management: during the handshaking, that was being done in the second floor of the venue, the girls were placed like in the middle of the corridor. it was obviously a waste of space making the lanes of fans wait in the stairs and even outside. just in the middle of the thing they realized it and moved them backwards. of course it caused some stress moving them and all the stuff during the event. another thing: some girls of course have smaller lanes. after some time waiting needlessly outside, they realized the error that was to keep people waiting in a single lane and let us, people that were going to shake hands with Nachu or Yukii enter skipping it. but after that, we could very easily re-enter in one of the other lanes and shake hands with other girls, cutting in front of the poor people still waiting in the greater lane. (I confess that I did it, talking with Morishi without having to wait a single minute  :twothumbs)

if we were talking about an obscure group, I wouldn't mind at all with these details, but since its Passpo...  :smhid

------

people are already concerned that the group is getting more expensive to follow, since in the WING campaign you could buy a cd for 2500 yens that would come with a ticket for a concert and handshaking event. now, for Sakura komachi, you have to spend 3500 yens for the cd with the concert ticket and 5000 for the special box that comes with the event ticket. the fuck! was Passpo bought by Akimoto and I'm not aware of it?  :lol:

and talking about Sakura komachi, the beside is called "wish on a star", according the Universal Music site. so I wonder from where they took the "No.1 Boy" song...

That reminds me of something I wrote last year XD

Maybe disorganization and waiting around is just part of the PASSPO "experience". Of course we don't want to disuade anyone from going to a concert, it's just good to know what to expect from the event.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on December 30, 2012, 01:53:51 AM
hey man, first of all let me congratulate for your blog. it`s so profissional comparing to mine.  :nervous

so I see that this bad management is not something new... well, of course the show is great and they are super kind personally, but what is wrong... is wrong.  :nervous I will not become a hater just because I`ve got my "No Nachu, No life" shirt now. ROFL

to tell the truth, the two big things that bothered me (and look like that they will accompany me) are the event tickets limitation and the strict "flight rules" (no moshing, no diving and so on). this time it was at Kokaido that has seats, so nevermind. but my next flight will be at Stellar Ball that is a standing stage, so I would like to "have some fun". you know, for me it`s really weird to hear songs like "Dear my Friends" without moshing, since I grew hearing punk rock and so. add to that the fact at concerts of other groups like BiS or ShizuKaze & Kizuna we are allowed to do it.  :(

as a senpai  :D could you tell me if this rule is really applied or it`s just there and people do whatever they want?  :bow:

Post by: qwiksXnd on January 08, 2013, 07:33:51 PM
^ Sorry for the late reply. The rules are enforced and it made a big difference. The first concert I went to in July 2011 at Shibuya AX was one of the last concerts they did without any rules (they did two more concerts at Shinjuku Blaze a couple weeks later and then announced the new rules at their staff blog). Incidentally the concert I went to was also Natsumi's birthday concert.  When I went back a couple months later in November the rules were in full affect - no more moshing, girls had there own area, and there was a "jumping" area in the back. Totally different experience. PASSPO has a lot of girl fans and the Shibuya AX concert was totally out of control and I imagine a lot of them got injured or just really annoyed at that concert, so I think that is why the changes happened. I think a girl's area would have fixed the problem, but then they also banned moshing on top of that. I didn't go to one of their concerts in 2012 though, so maybe things have changed a litte since. Steller Ball concert is in March right? That would be awesome, what other concerts are going on then?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on January 09, 2013, 08:50:05 AM
at this moment, I know they have three one-man scheduled in Tokyo: january 26th, february 24th and march 30th (as part of their national tour). the problem is that those first two shows are limited to the fan club members. did they always made this kind of thing? it sucks cuz it limits a lot my chances to see them... have to wait till the end of march...

about the rules... oh man, now I wish I had become a fan earlier.  :( If they really made this change thinking in the girl fans... they are pretty stupid, since in pop punk and skacore concerts there are always plenty of girls, plenty of moshing action and I don't remember seeing anyone getting hurt. in fact, that is one major factor why I like moshing in Japan: people seems to enjoy and have more fun than actually "going there to throw some punches" like it's common in the west. I remember back in the old days at my country, if someone falls he is promptly lynched by the mass. while in Japan people stop jumping and help the person to get up.

So, I'm back from Japan, well actually been back for a while! Managed to grab the Passpo tickets after all for the live at Nagoya. Much thanks for the help.

The Passo live was pretty amazing. Probably the best concert experience I had this trip. We were allowed to shake hands with one of the members after the concert, chose Makoto. Again, easily one of the best handshake experience ever. Could tell why she was so popular, despite being hidden on the stage for most of the show. Anyways, did a more detailed write-up of the encounter over here. http://supermerlion.com/nagoya-autumn-2012-day-11/ (http://supermerlion.com/nagoya-autumn-2012-day-11/)
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on January 10, 2013, 10:41:21 PM
^^ The fan club complicates things a little. The FC actually used to be a bigger deal when they first started, and over the years they've gradually reduced the amount of FC concerts  and perks. Like they no longer do "frequent flyer mileage" (fans used to scan a QR code at the entrance to the concert and get points for the concerts they go to). There's only a few FC-only concerts a year though. Another thing is sometimes tickets go on sale a few weeks in advance for FC members (a lot of groups do this for their FC members, but it's more of an issue for overseas PASSPO fans because these tickets don't go on resale as much, so if you are buying a normal ticket it's going to be a higher number).

edit: The photo seats are pretty cool, for hardcore fans I think it's worth it for 10,000 Y. If I was going to both shows that day, I'd consider it for one show and then go on the first floor for the other.

oh and they released the covers for the upcoming single and a preview of the clip

nothing special but I couldn`t let it pass the fact that despite having only nine girls, looks like my flopped oshimen in AKB has more screentime than poor Nachu.  :sweatdrop:

I think they should have included some DVDs since anyone who owns PASSPO's albums would have all these songs already. I don't really like their new outfits for this and I'm hoping the covers are decent and also include Musshu/Kaho since she was an important member. I just don't know how to feel about this release LOL but they've been around in 2009 so it is appropriate I guess, for fans who haven't heard their older stuff.

Wondering if anyone has received the three LIVE DVDs as here (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/passpo-live-dvds)?

I'm planning to order maybe two or maybe all three;  but from the setlists it seems that maybe the HANABI one has much less content than the other two?

Anyone have any recommendations about ordering these?  Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I am really starting to connect with PASSPO more and more now.  All I gotta do is get to know some of the girls...  right as of now, I can't name even one by sight!  Sad but true.   :oops:

Post by: Sokhar on February 17, 2013, 02:49:48 PM
I didn't buy them but i can help you thanks to the review of infzer0 (from forums.passpofan.com) :

Next Fligth Fest
Have the most songs compared all of the other 3 dvds. But some of the songs are short ver. The bonus are Next Flight Dance version and "Lip" version (lol basically just a close up version).

This dvd has one of my favorite performance, during La La La Love train, where members came down from the stage to sing soooo close with the fans...that is really awesome

Natsuzora Hanabi Fest

The live is the shortest of them all - i think only 10 songs including the encore. But the good thing about the DVD is the bonus material imo. The behind the scene is really funny - they're showing footage of passpo selling "Kakigoori" (ice shaved) to the fans haha. And also a footage of them riding the roller coaster lol...

Another bonus is the solo ver of each member PV.

Wing Fest

Throughout the concert they're wearing the "vampire" make up lol so if you want to see their "cute cute face" you better avoid this one. I really like it though, as i really like WING (it's probably one of my favorite passpo single to-date).

If you want to see Wing performance without the vampire make up you can see it during the encore segment of Natsuzora Hanabi Fest haha. The bonus got behind the scenes and the making of the PV which is awesome.


So yeah that is my short review of the DVDs. It's really hard to say which dvd is my favorite, as i really like them all lol...

and if you ask me which one you should buy, you better buy them all also LOL

okay, just arrived home after the one-man at Akasaka Blitz. I wasn`t able to see their january one-man, but this one I saw and now I`m relieved. since it was my first one-man in a place with no seats, I was anxious to see if the rules are serious or not. would be a lot less funny. luckily it`s not that rigorous, so we were able to mosh and jump freely. just diving wasn`t being made. well, to tell the truth I didn`t try it, so I can`t tell if it`s really prohibited. I wouldn`t like to risk myself, being the only foreigner it`s simple to locate, kill me and dispose my body somewhere.  :panic:

I have to say one thing that was really cool today (two. they were using a new costume, light green. MioMio designed it and Sacotii said it was in her homage. =P ): Kurochan was there in the public. people spot him started bugging him to make some gags, he even did the "attention please, passpo desu".  :lol: I knew he was a wota, but didn`t know he likes passpo too.  :cow:

man, I feel so dumb. yesterday was the special event day. I participated in the "menkai", which I thought would be a simple handshaking just a little longer. NO, it wasn't. people were allowed to take pics and get signs during it. but since I didn't expect this, I wasn't prepared and used my time only talking with Nachu.  :banghead: she complained I'm going too much with her recently (yes, really!) and I told her that's because I need to see more of her smile. she lol'ed. as time passes I'm getting the feeling she is turning a little tsundere.

So many announcements made at PASSPO's show today! They will hold a nation-wide tour this summer called "Charter Flight Nation-Wide Tour in Summer Vacation" and they showed off their new uniform too. The others:

http://passpo.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/stepgo-candy-room/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/stepgo-candy-room/)
Following PASSPO☆’s 2012 ‘Around the world’ series that featured LA Metal, Japanese Punk and German Rock – The group’s new 2013 trilogy will showcase the evolution of the group’s growth! PASSPO☆ will release a new single in May (this one), June and July.

The first in the 2013 trilogy is a double a-side single: STEP&GO will be the ending theme for 探検ドリランド-1000年の真宝- while キャンディー・ルーム (Candy Room) will be the ending theme for the group’s upcoming new TV show PASSPO☆の尺うまTV!

http://passpo.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/sayounara-passpo-konnichiwa-passpo-dvd/ (http://passpo.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/sayounara-passpo-konnichiwa-passpo-dvd/) (setlist in the link)
PASSPO☆ will release a DVD of their final flight (concert) from 2012 held in Shibuya Public Hall! This concert marked the end of the group under the name of ぱすぽ☆ as they began 2013 with their new name of PASSPO☆.

~

Both the single and DVD will be released on May 22.

I don't understand how their management thinks lol, they'll go months without any activity and releases then BAM so many things at once.  :bleed eyes:

they also said that the Summer Tour will have more flights, passing through cities they didn't go this time. the thing that bugs me now is how they release a single with "Step&Go" and nothing about "Truly" yet? Leviathan is just about to start already while Driland will use their song just in second semester.  :?

*ps: the new yellow costume was designed by MioMio too. I didn't like it. and didn't like "Step&Go" neither. "Candy Room" in the other hand is fucking addictive. it's very different from their other songs and "ah-ah-ah~~, ah-ah-ah~~,ah-ah-ah~~" part is too cute. :cow:

oh they appeared in school uniforms to perform "Sakura iro" in a rock version and celebrate MioMio and Annya's graduation from high school. they teared the uniforms during the show and said they would send it to Palet, as a gift from the senpais.  :huhuh after my first meeting with her, MioMio is a sweetie for sure. I would go more times with her if the lane wasn't so huge. while my Nachu simply wasn't there, maybe she was sick or with some particular problem? her dance was totally off and in the handshakings she was with zero energy, with a sad face.

Post by: PASSPO on March 31, 2013, 03:49:35 AM
^ Aww, poor Nachu. :( I've been following tweets from people who went to the flight yesterday and I can't wait to hear 'Candy Room', it sounds really fun. It is weird that they're not releasing 'Truly' first, I almost forgot about them singing that song for Leviathan lol. I hope it won't be released on another Universal Music Store limited CD as the b-side.

I don't really like the new uniforms, the yellow is too bright and strong. :( I was never a fan of the colour in the first place though but it's really cool they're letting Mio design their outfits still.

I watched it in the tv and the only thing I can say is that it wasn`t worth staying awaken till 2:30 am.  :yawn:

it was clear they were completely lost. reminded the start of AKBingo, with a tv veteran having to come and help them. which is something that we could expect, no surprises or deception.

next program will feature half naked Passpo in an onsen!?!?! oh this is so lam... count me in.  :twothumbs  :fap

oh and I have to say that I bought the photobooks. I was only pretending to buy MioMio's but ended buying both and... there's no regrets. seriously, if someone didn't buy Aipon's till now... BUY IT, GOD DAMMIT!! it's one of the best photobooks I ever saw, just the first pic with a close-up in her ass already makes the money worth.   :fap

MioMio's one has a vibe more kawaii than ero. it's pretty nice too, just lacks some Miku Hatsune cosplay.  :P

the curious thing is that those movies are adaptations of the same (horror) story that originated a theatrical play starred by Naaboudoufu@nana.




and the question that pops in my mind now is: does Nachu have more screentime in this thing than in Passpo's clips or...?  :panic:

Post by: sayumi_fan on April 22, 2013, 06:33:07 AM
They didn't have to go to L.A. I'm sure there is an airplane graveyard in Japan they could have filmed at, and plenty of Japanese rock musicians they could have worked with, but that wasn't the image they were going for. If they had more resources or time I'm sure they could have gotten a better lineup, since I do feel a lot of American rock groups are fascinated by Japanese pop culture, but Universal Japan either didn't have connections to them, or they already knew who they could work with.
Only commenting on this like almost a whole year later:

- Really appreciated your overall thoughts and views here, qwiksXnd

- I think the reason they didn't have access to an airplane graveyard in Japan is cos the Japanese climate is too wet and humid to store planes easily.  The airplane graveyard they filmed "Next Flight" at is at Mojave Air & Space Port http://mojaveairport.com/ (http://mojaveairport.com/)  +35° 3' 29.18", -118° 9' 27.11" (just copy & paste those coordinates into Google Maps, zoom out one notch and you'll see all the stored planes to the north and north-east of the main airport) which is in the desert and very very dry so the planes don't deteriorate fast.

- The plane which they perform under is a 1969-built Douglas DC-8 painted in the livery of Air Transport International (ATI), registration N820BX (which you can see as they pan across the plane in the first seconds of the PV).  Some shots of this specific airplane when it was in service are at http://flickriver.com/photos/tags/n820bx/interesting/ (http://flickriver.com/photos/tags/n820bx/interesting/) and also at http://www.planepictures.net/netsearch4.cgi?srch=N820BX&stype=reg&srng=2 (http://www.planepictures.net/netsearch4.cgi?srch=N820BX&stype=reg&srng=2) where some of the shots are in previous livery of BAX

- You can see the full set of these planes in storage at Mojave, as they were when Passpo was there, in the middle of last year (1st June 2012) at
http://www.airteamimages.com/douglas-dc-8_N820BX_ati---air-transport-international_154706.html (http://www.airteamimages.com/douglas-dc-8_N820BX_ati---air-transport-international_154706.html)  This is where Passpo filmed their PV of course.  (Large view of this shot at http://www.airteamimages.com/douglas-dc-8_N820BX_ati---air-transport-international_154706_large.html (http://www.airteamimages.com/douglas-dc-8_N820BX_ati---air-transport-international_154706_large.html)  - you can almost work out where they did the filming!)  You can see this set of planes on Google Maps by entering these coordinates: +35° 3' 59.59", -118° 9' 57.93"

- The full lineup of American musicians (from TokyoHive at http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/05/passpo%E2%98%86-reveals-full-pv-for-upcoming-single-next-flight/ (http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/05/passpo%E2%98%86-reveals-full-pv-for-upcoming-single-next-flight/) ) is...

Next Flight
Josh Freese (drums) - formerly with Nine Inch Nails and Guns N Roses
Robin Finck (guitar) - formerly with Nine Inch Nails and Guns N Roses
Chris Chaney(bass) - huge range of work including work with Alanis Morissette, Slash, Michelle Branch and many more

Bathtub
Eric Brittingham (bass) - bassist with glam metal band Cinderella
Fred Coury (drums) - drummer with Cinderella

Edit:  this full lineup with some other mentions is also at http://aramatheydidnt.livejournal.com/3821238.html (http://aramatheydidnt.livejournal.com/3821238.html)

This PV is definitely still one of my favourites from Passpo...  love the contrast with the pink outfits and pretty much everything else in the video being rough and dirty.

Truly Happy Birthday!  Naomi-san has such big beautiful anime-style eyes.  Some lucky dude will get to look in those eyes one day for the rest of their lives together.  Not yet, not yet, she's still an idol and that would kill her career...  but one day, those eyes will be a source of intense emotion for...  someone   :P

Short MV Previews of STEP&GO and Candy Room!!!

PASSPO☆ - STEP&GO (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFuAo7gf-Qo#ws)

PASSPO☆ - キャンディー・ルーム (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMUG5ZoWWe0#ws)

Both are pretty great, in my opinion. The first is different, silly, and creative and really enjoyable in that way. THe second is more simple but really really fun, cute, girly, and has a little hint of sexy. I think it's really well done.
PASSPO hasn't released a single song I don't like so far, and I can definitely still say this ;D My favorite of the two songs is Candy Room, though

Not as good as Candy Room and the FX are really cheaps.  :bleed eyes:
Too bad since the geeky theme was a good idea.

Moreover... What happened to the beautiful deep voice of Morishi ?  :cry:
I would have never known that was her which was singing the final solo if i only heard it.

the third and last single of the sequence will be released July 31st, called "Mousou no Hawaii" (b-side "Mudai"). it's produced by one of the Hawaiian6 guys. I'm feeling it will be the best of these three releases.

Yes, but it's always nice to hear ;p

I actually bought it because I'll be in Japan (First time EVER) in exactly 21 days, and I'll be staying two weeks. The CD game with a ticket to a live they were doing on August 3rd, and no way I was missing out on that.
When I noticed it came with a different b-side, it was just like a super bonus.  :D (Even more so now that I hear it- it's my favorite track on the single.  :twothumbs: )

hey guys, you that follow this group since way more time than me, can tell please if this thing (being talked recently in 2ch) about Aipon being a half with Filipino mother is really new or unexpected?

when I saw people talking about it, it confused me cuz I thought it was a common sense already, judging from some posts in her blog, her mother's name...
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on July 08, 2013, 07:20:28 AM
That would be news to me. What's her mother's name?

When I first started following the group I thought several of them were halfies (Morishi, Makoto, Kaho, and Naomi) . As far as I know only Kaho talked about looking like a halfie and always denied it.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Mage77 on July 08, 2013, 07:51:08 AM
Never heard anyone speculate that Aipon was a halfie before so I'm not sure where that came from.

She sure doesn't look it at least.

well, Naomin is inquired quite frequently about it, cuz of her big eyes and darker skin tone.



I`m not a big Aipon follower (I usually only look for Nachu and MioMio related stuff) so I was surprised... not exactly because of the fact, cuz we have a ton of halfies in the idol world and Aipon does have some traces, imo.

but the point that just this past week it appeared... I mean... she talked about her mother in the one-man done last may (if I remember correctly)... and let me apologize to qwiksXnd cuz I don`t remember her mother`s name  :sweatdrop: I tried searching for it but no results... I do remember the people going "ohhhhhh" and Annya joking that it looked like a mythological entity name. it had a spanish origin, something like Milena, Selena...

and Aipon already showed some filipino stuff in ther blog sometime ago too http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20090316.html (http://ameblo.jp/negishiai/day-20090316.html)
(she talks about a Filipino perfume that not only her, but her mother and father like and that it was sent by her grandmother -so she lives in Philippines, I guess-)

Post by: Mucca on July 13, 2013, 03:27:53 AM
So, I don't really follow Passpo at all, but I decided to grab the two albums available on US iTunes on a whim and...wow. Both of them -- but especially One World -- blew me away with how good they were. Usually I have to adjust my expectations to idol music, but I guess Passpo is right in my wheelhouse because I genuinely liked them from the first listen.

It'd be nice if more of their stuff became available on iTunes, but I'm not holding my breath.

Post by: tsutomo on July 14, 2013, 03:28:48 AM
I think it`s annoying only when people start attacking the girl with racist comments. imo, the girl being a half is a plus.  ;) and for the foreign fans it`s interesting cuz the chances of the girl being able to speak proper english increase highly. (dunno about Aipon though, never talked with her till now...)

OH! now I see why they were talking recently about Aipon being a half. they showed her house family and all in "Shaku Uma TV". a must see to the Aipon fans:
[2013.07.06] PASSPO☆の尺うまTV ep13 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7Zlz5_S0xQ#ws)

*ps: I live alone too. and I'm male. though my home is way better than Aipon's, I don't use corrugated boxes as tables.  :lol: have to say this to her someday.  :P

*ps: in the end of episode 12 there was a sneeze prank... I thought it was a preview of the next episode or something... damn, I would like to see a longer version of it, looked like stupidly funny.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Mage77 on July 16, 2013, 04:32:28 AM
Yeah, I was wondering what happened to the high speed camera sneezing bit. I figured it was going to have a whole episode dedicated to it or something.

Aipon's apartment is pretty much what my apartment would look like if I lived alone. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

Post by: Mage77 on July 16, 2013, 05:35:21 AM
Now that I think about it, they really should just invade all of the other member's houses like they did with Aipon. That's another 8 episodes they could do and I'm sure none of the viewers would mind that much.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on July 16, 2013, 09:54:49 AM
yep, they really should do it. would be extremely interesting since we rarely see this kind of thing about our idols... I only hope they don't do it with Nacchu, cuz c'mon... if the almighty Aipon's apartment is that simple, imagine what shall be the flopped girl room.  :nervous she may sleep in a newspaper bed with only ice cream in her whole kitchen.

I don't think Maccochan would agree to do one of these episodes... it would be revealed that her jellyfish is dead.  :P

Limited B sides are HARD to find. Good thing they even are on Youtube. It's like this with Wish on a star and was like this with 2DAYS and Pock Star until they got released on One World.
Hopefully they do this with their next album, it will be definitely mine if so, the limited B sides alone justify it.

If you want to hear them alone you should rip them from the Youtube clip, it's like the only chance for now.

11th single: Growing Up

Next single announced for October 16th, 3 years after Pretty Lie (but 4 days earlier).
Not only related in date, but also in content: the song is said to be like an "after song" for Pretty lie, a sequence for it apparently.

Here a video posted on their official site about the single:
PASSPO☆ - Growing UP ~根岸 愛~ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5Nhf7H0wQI#)
On the video, a song closely related to Pretty Lie can be heard, and said song isn't present on Gracenote's database at all. So it's most likely a preview of the song itself.

Traklist:

1.Growing Up
2.Cosmic You
3.Growing Up (instrumental)
4.Cosmic You (instrumental)


The single will be released on the usual three classes versions, with same traklists for all regular versions (if there's limited ones, possibly a limited B-side will be present). Here links for pre-sales on CD Japan (mods can delete if that's against the rules, sorry if so):
Economy (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/aff/click.cgi/ZRcokempdVE/4176/A793738/detailview.html?KEY=UPCH-5808), containing only the CD single;
Business (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/aff/click.cgi/ZRcokempdVE/4176/A793738/detailview.html?KEY=UPCH-9892), with DVD containing Growing Up Dance Shot version;
First Class (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/aff/click.cgi/ZRcokempdVE/4176/A793738/detailview.html?KEY=UPCH-9891), containing DVD with Growing Up PV.

The same configuration as usual.

if the new song can attain fifty percent of Pretty Lie's greatness it will be an instant classic already.  :heart:

I'm pleased to see they'll be doing a series of videos with all the girls promoting the new song (starting with Aipon, as seen above) just like Predia has done recently. I can't wait to see MioMio and Nachu ones.  :bow:

still no info about what will be done regarding the baseball event scheduled for last monday that was cancelled due to the typhoon. hope they can appoint another date, would be really sad if after all those programs building up, they ended without a real match.  :(







sorry if I'm too lazy and this video was already posted here, but someone cares to explain what's the history behind this?
ぱすぽ(仮) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCPkCqF6WE4#ws)

like when it was made, for what purpose and so on. I can only recognize Nachu, MioMio, Naomin and Macocchan there.  :sweatdrop: (edit: Sako and Annya too. Morishi, Aipon, Yukky and Mushu, no way)

Naomin's video:

PASSPO☆ - Growing Up ~安斎 奈緒美~ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZhvlgcUdSg#)

Now it's Naomin's turn to speak, and from what I could understand she called Nacchu on the phone, showing gratitude for all the time and all (Nacchu was kinda "Why suddenly????").

PASSPO gives me such a cute friendship image I don't see everywhere... :wub:

great, Nachu will probably be left as the last one.  :angry:




is it my impression or each one is really thanking different people? mother, father, choreographer, colleague... if they continue without repeating, I wonder who will Nachu thank... the ice cream vendor?!?!?  XD

PASSPO☆ - 「Growing Up」アンサーメッセージ映像 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_B25S1RcS8#)

I really would appreciate a lot a translation of this, I really can't keep up with anything... /cry

Looks like messages from the members, much like the previous videos, but not the same.

And on their site there was something about baseball cards with the members on them, that would come with Regular Edition Growing Up single if bought from the Universal Music Japan store, if I remember correctly:

I expect nothing less than the best idol album of this year, since the last one was awesome.  :)

hey guys, did you saw that "Growing Up" had the best sale numbers since "ViVi Natsu", with more 17,250 copies? the good marketing this time paid off nicely. dunno where they can get with the album, but it would be HUGE for them if it reached the top 10...

on another hand, am I the only one feeling that we may have a graduation soon?  :(

^ Who are you thinking? When I first saw the Truly video, I immediately noticed Makoto was only in the video for one second in the first minute. Seemed really weird and I thought they could be minimizing her role in case she graduates.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on November 05, 2013, 08:43:13 AM
exactly her, Macocchan. she'd been away several times already (specially in their tv program) with all her other works... some days ago I saw a CM with her and saw her "Growing Up" video where she goes saying like "I'll graduate when I feel ready and fulfilled" kind of things and couldn't help to think that she may be felling ready sooner than later. she is the one with more works outside the group so...


*and I can't help to add that from the times I spot her in events, she looked like the one that was less amused among them. not really antipathetic but still...*
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on November 05, 2013, 11:18:21 AM
That's interesting. I haven't kept up to date with the group, so I haven't watched the Growing Up videos. The last time I went to an event she was using "eien no seventeen" as her catchphrase so it's been a while, but she was always extremely fan friendly. I don't know how this would factor into anything, but she's the only member who never had a best friend within the group. She's closest with Yukki but that seemed more like a big sister relationship. She is by far my favorite member, but I never thought PASSPO was the best match for her. Obviously I'd like her to stay, but for a long time I've considered her the likeliest to graduate.

Post by: KalvinET on November 05, 2013, 01:53:16 PM
Makochan did gave this feeling from the Growing Up PV, from the entirety almost.

The whole PV gave me a "Goodbye our friend" feeling. the whole ending scene where she's the only one not among the girls, but they all looking at her gave me an impression of she being graduating soon.
I hope not, but if she does, may it be for her best, and may the group stay strong as well.

I thought why previous makocchan rarely active in PASSPO it because he was busy with a shooting in the series Kamen Rider, but now makocchan already active in all activities PASSPO. and if someone says he has no friend in PASSPO I do not think so because she was very close with all the members, especially Naomi, Yukki, Natchu, Mori but with the other he is also very close. :?

my biggest fear regarding Macocchan's possible graduation is that I think she can keep quite well outside the group but I have serious doubts that they can continue without her. Not only because she one of the top 3, but because I think their ties are so strong that it may trigger some other graduations. I dunno what you guys think, but imo Passpo doesn't look like one of those groups that can keep alive substituting members. If let's say four of them quit, I see the remaining girls simply breaking the group and it's over.

If they where one of those disposable groups out there it would be fine, and they would just find another one on the same type, that's it.

But the biggest proof they aren't like this is that after Kaho's graduation the group stayed the same.
I don't think PASSPO will crumble apart without her, but it will be a big impact.

Anyway, I like her and want her to stay, but if it's for the good. No point wanting the worse for the girl, just hope everything goes well.

WELL, these are just some things we are discussing here and maybe not anything of it makes even sense (hopefully), let's see how things go.

Hey, even if it's 2 or 3 week old subject, I want to say that I don't think Macochan will graduate soon. Even if she was less present, she wasn't the more absent girl (3 seconds with Yukimi :'( ) in Truly's PV. I'll be killed by Mako's lovers but I think she was too much on the front of the stage, and it was good to see the other girls.

And for Growing Up, I don't have the "Goodbye to our friend" feeling. It's natural to think about that (especially for the 5 last seconds), but I think she had to much importance in this PV for leaving the group like that. Usually, you try to minimize the role of the girl who'll graduate.
In fact, I really love this PV and the "Dance Shot version" confirmed one of my idea. The scene where Macochan is alone on stage is *the same* scene as in "Pretty Lie" where she's singing alone.  Since they have made a so big story about Growing Up and Pretty Lie, maybe the PV's scenario  was thought like that.

Also, I really think that Maccochan is the girl who grew up the most. When you saw the first flights, she was soooo shy (telling her name seemed difficult ^^), and now she's the girl having the most activity out of the group.
(Aipon grew also a lot, but since the beginning, imo, she was a true leader, a true Captain)

So for this reasons, I don't think she'll graduate immediately. Even if she does some things without PASSPO, she have to acquire more popularity to make a solo carrier, and she can have it with the group.
But you're right, I have a bad feeling about a graduation of a member in the coming months, and I'm already sad :'(

talking about graduations, did you see what happened yesterday? looks like someone hacked MioMio twitter's account (now deleted) and started posting "graduation" and "I'll quit". no one understood what was happening, fans and members... there was a big noise at 2ch (that I'm now trying to catch up) and today they send an e-mail to all members of the fanclub (this is where I found about this story) apologizing and saying they'll investigate what happened.   :O

Yes i saw it.
In fact I saw it on twitter, the other members and the staff were talking about it.
I hope she'll forget this story quickly and come back on twitter.
It's stupid to do that, but lots of worst things could happen in life. She just has to keep smiling  :wub:

Post by: tsutomo on December 12, 2013, 12:57:18 AM
bought the cd only version (maybe buy the other one later). my quick impressions:

-am I the only finding it difficult to judge if this album is better or worse than "One World"? (in 2ch most guys think it`s worse...)

-imo, this album is funnier and more "idolish". which is interesting but a little contradictory with the "mature look" around the photos and videos. maybe it was made on purpose... either way, I liked it.

-Aipon` solo song is extremely cute.

-MioMio` song is a little... strange. her voice and lyrics would match better a ballad not this pop-rock tune.

-Aipon`s "Kucha Love" is the original song that stood up more for me. very nice.

- I may be the only one in the world that thinks this, but... I liked the "Growing Up" single version more than the new one.

Post by: Akokyuu on December 12, 2013, 01:43:55 PM
Don't feel so alone ^^, I also think that the single version of Growing Up is better, even if this version is not bad!

For the general feelings on this album, I think it's the same quality as One World.
But one really great thing is that some of them really work a lot on this album. As you said, Aipon and MioMio have worked hard on 2 songs.

Also, I think that more and more they have 2 really differents styles : a pure pop style and a (pop-)rock style.
For MioMio, she's not the better singer and to sing a ballade you must have a good voice. For the album, you can do it easily, yes, but in live... I really think she's not able to do it for the moment. (And I'm rather sure she really prefers pop-rock rather than ballade  ;)).

The song Shang Shang Chandelier really sounds like Urbangarde's songs. It's probably the most original song here.

On my side, for the moment, I don't have a preferred song (talking about the new song - and for the other songs of the album, maybe I still listening a little more Growing up), they're all great, imho!


What I really want for the next album it's some really personal songs, for exemple an acoustic song with Aipon playing piano  (and singing alone or with other members...)  :wub: :wub: :wub:.


Oh and an information, on day 1, their album were 5th at the top Oricon.

Today, JEJEJEJET!!, their 3rd album is in sale :)!
Unfortunately, I will not receive it so quickly :(

If someone already had a copy, don't hesitate to share your feelings about it with us :D (about the DVD of the first-class edition for exemple )

And for those who can't wait to listen it, you can listen it there! (http://www.musicme.com/Passpo/albums/Jejejejet!!-0600406389671.html)    :wub:

EDIT: Now available on Deezer (http://www.deezer.com/album/7174074) and  Spotify  (https://play.spotify.com/album/2QnOV2tlbznKaj8b7yQGOD) ;)

Thanks a LOT Akokyuu, those previews made my mind instantly! Now just waiting... 3 weeks until it arrives... (After all, express mail would be half or almost the price of the album itself)
Wish on a Star was the song that made me want this badly, and the others confirmed it.
Mine is the Economy Class version, not first press (my copy of One World was).

By the way: anybody here with first press editions? Please share what you got with the first press!! One World was a poster, I remember something about a Christmas card or what was it with JEJEJEJET!!, but please tell us what you got with it!.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Akokyuu on December 12, 2013, 04:49:05 PM
You're welcome :p.

Hum I bought the first class edition but I'll not receive it now neither. In fact, I don't know when I will receive it. I choosed air mail too because the last time I bought something, I paid so much taxes, woooow (my ass still hurting me...). So I will receive it between 1 and 8 weeks   :cry:

But I haven't saw any first press edition in sales for this edition (?).
For the regular version, yes it's a christmas card, but no photos or scans found for the moment.

For those who are interested, still 2 cds with the first press bonus on CDJapan!

Post by: tsutomo on December 13, 2013, 09:11:30 AM
yep I know MioMio probably likes a pop-rock tune better, but I think it would fit nicely. I don't think her singing ability is so bad, imo she is, let's say, "idol average".  :D she could handle a ballad. wouldn't turn something Yuka Masuda quality, but it's okay for me.

I got a christmas card with mine, you can have a look here http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fMxj3_ZQSZ0/UqpPETqPbHI/AAAAAAAAJE4/1TrFOUcmelo/s1600/meguro+goods+02.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fMxj3_ZQSZ0/UqpPETqPbHI/AAAAAAAAJE4/1TrFOUcmelo/s1600/meguro+goods+02.jpg)

and yes, they are clearly walking with two different styles, more "idolish" and more rock. I personally like it, since it opens more space to creativity. but I comprehend those who prefer them doing only more rock oriented songs.

would be really nice if they went further in this idea of writing the lyrics themselves, having solos... I sometimes think that Penne to Arabiata is kinda out of good new ideas, and having more variety in the composition would certainly help the group to keep interesting. (the same I few about AKB and Akimoto, but in a lesser extent here)

I think the songs on their new album is pretty good, especially song kucha love, because the vocals first filled by makochan :heart:,
and song creation mio I think is also good to hear, even though the main vocal if not mistaken it only focused on the Mio, aipon and mori. :)

There's then hope to see songs like those two in the new singles.

But hey, I'm shooting fireworks already with this album, really worth the (biiig) money!!
Not that I have it in hands... but already listened in Deezer, really suits my style, I really won't complain if they follow with this style they are now.
Just want to see more Nacchu!! (well, as her fan that's obvious, but she is getting more attention now.)

when I first heard about it, I became excited expecting something "Give Me Five!!" alike...

but now seeing that five of them will be doing nothing (okay, Morishi and Aipon will sing as always. but still 3 left...) looks like such a good opportunity wasted... Yukky could be in the mixer, Nachu in the keyboards and Macocchan with the percussion, something like that.  :(

well, yesterday in the last release event of the "Perfect Sky" single at Akiba Sofmap, I did something that can possibly turn me into a banned guy from Passpo concerts.  :lol:
I'm not one of those that always participate in their handshaking events, but when I do, I always talk (or take pics) with my oshimen, Bonkura-chan. so that she remembers about me when I go there. (see? she is not so stupid as people say. she has some kind of memory that denotes the existence of at least a dozen working neurons. rofl)
yesterday I thought about giving her a present. must be tough seeing her colleagues receiving bags of things... while she always receives so few presents (and when she does get something, it's pretty cheap stuff... like a RedBull can. rofl -no kidding, real story-). that made me a little sad inside, so I decided to do it, despite this kind of thing not being usual for me. (to be honest, I NEVER bought a present to some idol before. I once gave to her some cheap toys but I didn't buy them, I carelessly got those in an UFO catcher some minutes before the event)
so it was some difficult task to me and I had no clue of what to give her... but I wanted to stand out, that's for sure. I had to make an impression (as if being a foreigner in their shows wasn't enough)...
Nachu doesn't lay out a lot of clues in her blog, so I was pretty much left with giving her something related to ice creams... my initial idea was to buy an ice cream maker. but not a common electric maker, a toy one.  :D I thought it would fit her image well.  :P
but I had just some hours to find one in Akihabara before the event started and... had no luck. so I went to Don Quijote and searched for some funny stuff. I ended up becoming enchanted with a sexy lingerie with exposed breasts (similar to this one http://www.dhgate.com/product/dl-black-super-sexy-exposed-breast-open-files/166429979.html (http://www.dhgate.com/product/dl-black-super-sexy-exposed-breast-open-files/166429979.html)) and so I thought: why not?  :D
my friends gave me some stupid ideas courage and I did it! put in some package so she couldn't know what it was inside and gave her. I made sure to drawn some suspense and curiosity about what it was (just for the lulz), but didn't find some comments about it yet (on her blog or twitter). dunno if this is a good sinal.
maybe she got pissed? maybe she hates me now?!?  :huhuh well, I'll discover next time I try to see them. I may be banned from their shows by now rofl or in the best scenario, I turned into a laughing stock and even MioMio will point at me and joke about my present to Nachu.  :ph43r:

nah, with Passpo and most of the low profile groups you can hand it directly to the girl. that's why I gave it to her, in the first place. I have zero interest in giving something to a girl if I can't do it by myself, kills the purpose, imo. this is why I never gave (and never will) something to Sekki (from Up Up) or some AKB/SKE girl. it's so uncool to not be able to see the smile in the girl's face and all the giggles.  :twothumbs

holy shit, I didn't think about it this way... I may be responsible for some rule changes an so the wotas will become pissed trying to catch me.  :panic:

Post by: tsutomo on May 10, 2014, 03:04:29 PM
well, I think it`s better to update the situation about that crazy idea of giving Nachu a sexy lingerie cuz... well, someone may be curious.  :roll:

today at the Kawaii Nippon Expo festival I was finally able to talk with Nachu again. no, I`m not banned from taking part in their handshaking events.  :cow:  :twothumbs :cow:

after she gave me a slap, she asked where the hell she would use it and I said "what about in the next Hacchake Night?"  :lol:

she said it doesn't fit her image in any way so she gave the lingerie to Aipon. "u kidding, right?". "nope". :shocked WTF?!? well, I guess I can't really complain of her act since I was the one that started this douchebaggery but now this story reaches another point: I'll have to talk with Aipon to know if Nachu was joking or was really telling the truth. I don't have much to lose at this point so I just pray that she doesn't receive me "oh! so you are the perv gaijin, ahn??".

Nachu turned to Naomin (who was free at that moment) and said "look. remember that lingerie... it was him...". at this moment the staff tapped in my shoulder and man, I never felt so relieved to end a handshaking before.  :nervous I simply turned and got away quickly before Naomin memorized my face and started laughing. so, as I feared, Nachu showed it to the other girls. ............. ............. now I have to remember: NEVER meet with Annya, cuz she has the guts to start moking me "hey! the perv guy is here! wahahahahahah will you give me a negligee? a bikini?!".  :ph43r:

What I noticed:
1. Passpo was much more "idolish" back then. But the power of today's was already there. It is obvious why they made such impact back then!
2. I will NEVER comprehend the fashion trend of wearing fake glasses, as seen by most of them here.
3. They didn't wear flight attendance uniforms, but school girl outfits -  A much welcomed change for me! I just wish they would change their uniforms more often like that!

Too bad about the video quality though. Can hardly differentiate them. Good stuff though!
But who the hell had the idea of using a side camera that often for recording?!?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on September 02, 2014, 01:58:57 PM
I don't mind fake glasses, except when people wear the ones without lenses.

Seeing how packed that place is, the side camera had a less obstructed view of the girls. There was no room for a camera on a track in front of the stage with the fans right up against it and we saw how terrible the rear camera angle was too. And then there's also how familiar or not whoever is directing the cameras and filming with a group's performance. It's pretty bad when they're playing catch-up with finding whoever is singing or supposed to be the focus at different parts of songs. The worst is when I'm watching a band and they're showing the drummer or bass player while the guitarist is soloing.

Went and checked out the 1st episode of their web show GOOD LUCK STREAM at Shibuya PARCO tonight. I haven't really been paying attention to Makocchan but holy smokes, she is super cute in that "I must protect her!" sort of way. I'm still supporting Anya but Makocchan is cute too.

Show dragged a little but as it was the first episode, that was to be expected. Hopefully, they keep improving with each subsequent show. All I know is that Anya and Miomio will be on for the next show in a few weeks. Not sure who the other two will be yet.

^you are so quick in the news! looks like you were there in the show...  :roll:





but seriously, we were speculating here months ago about her graduation... looks like the timing was correct since she talked about it with the other members right before the start of this tour.

after january it will be really interesting to see what will happen with the group after losing the second most famous member. exactly now that they were talking about aiming at a Budoukan show... let's admit it became further away now, more than ever... back to our speculation I really hope we were wrong at predicting one graduation would "open the door" to several others, culminating in their disband. becuz I really can't see the management adding a new member to "keep things as they are" and I really question what are the motivations for most of them to continue in the group if it sticks to this current level and can't progress. 
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on September 28, 2014, 04:44:11 PM
I wonder why they haven't done a Budokan show yet. I like Babyraids too but, I think them having a Budokan show despite only being around for 2 years is really early, especially since 9nine didn't have one until right before their 9th "birthday". BiS was trying to have a Budokan concert but ended up at Yokohama Arena (which is bigger, isn't it?) when they disbanded. Compared to other groups, it would seem odd if they added a new member, since they've stayed pretty much the same, aside from when Kaho left 3 years ago. Whatever happened to her? Her blog and Twitter haven't been updated in years!
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: tsutomo on September 28, 2014, 05:23:43 PM
It's not so easy to make a show at Budoukan as it may appear. you still can count on your fingers all the idol groups (outside AKB and H!P franchises) that managed to make a concert there (or in similar stages). you can name one "odd case" here and there but all have their background. BiS for example only had that show at Yokohama Arena because they were disbanding, otherwise it wouldn't happen. Pour Lui (and if I remember correctly manager JunJun too) talked how they were broken after holding that big show with so many empty seats (half the capacity of the Arena. a thing that was obviously going to happen). and I recall them talking about the reasons why they picked Yokohama Arena instead of Budoukan too (availability of the place, renting price, etc). so yeah Passpo could make a Budoukan show already, but only if the management didn't care about having some inevitable losses in the process. I still guess that they'll hold their farewell concert there though, some years from now (a little optimism from my part here).

Kaho is alive becuz I remember someone posting on twitter a pic with her in some restaurant/bar like a month ago. (I think it was Morishi, not sure now) and yeah it would be very strange to see a new member in the group. their relationship looks to be closer than your average group out there, the new member would be so out of place... specially if they added a loli.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on September 28, 2014, 06:06:39 PM
Video from after the concert uploaded by staff.

http://youtu.be/uEfmApAFz2o (http://youtu.be/uEfmApAFz2o)

Yeah, BiS seemed to lose a lot of money on their "final" concert with all the 1 yen and 2000 yen seats they had just to try fill it up. All the fans in the arena seats paid like 6,000 yen or even 30,000 yen for the "moshing" area way in the front if I remember correctly. That's probably why they had a "former BiS one-man" the next night with an entry fee of 30,000 yen? Didn't AKB lose a lot of money the first time they had their Tokyo Dome concerts as well? I guess it's all about the prestige of having a concert in such a famous place.

Well, there was an attempt to add new members to PASSPO before, because isn't that how palet came into being? They added Nakano Yumi (age not disclosed on palet's site) earlier this year but then again, they've only been around since 2012.

It seems like some members of FYT (Funky Yankee Teachers, teacher-themed group under the same agency) was at the show too, according to Twitter.

Oricon was pretty fast in getting their article up. Don't click if you can't handle the sight of a teary-eyed Makocchan!

that BiS show was overpriced because they had tabehoudai and nomihoudai included, don't forget this detail. I remember seing some pics of the event, JunJun bought like a ton of McDonald's burgers. rofl

I wasn't following Passpo so closely when Palet was created but yeah the official story is that they were training to turn into Passpo members but ended up as another group. if you ask my point of view, from the little I know about this agency and all... I guess their plan was to create a new group from the beginning. and the Passpo trainees story was released just to make some buzz and attract people to new group, leaching some prestige from their most successful group. maybe Shawn or some other guy can have their insight in this topic becuz I'm sure they know better than me. and yeah the sister groups don't have this 'problem', they are always adding and losing members while their essence continues. I can't explain it clearly but I don't think the same thing would (or will) happen with Passpo though. just my gut feeling.

Whoa, without even watching the video I recognized Adorien. I never met him, but I remember he bought 500 copies of ViVi Natsu :O And he used to read my blog XD

About Mako-T, I think she fulfilled her obligations to the group, so I'm happy for her. Although her leaving obviously hurts them. I want to go to the concert. Are you guys going? (vaguely recalls wattstax telling me he is going to the New Years concert).

About Palet, the intention was to add new members (Kaho had graduated three months prior). A ballot was included w/ Kimi wa Boku wo Suki ni naru and they set up a voting website where you had to enter the keycode. There were a few of us here who voted. They also provided the results of the fan vote at their blog [although the numbers were obviously fake. A girl named Misa (http://ameblo.jp/saionjimisa/ (http://ameblo.jp/saionjimisa/)) was the clear frontrunner but in the results she wasn't in the top 5. And I just realized after a 2 year hiatus she recently updated her blog and evidently she's in a new idol group now. I'll have to blog about this later XD - I was a huge fan of hers back then]. Just speculation on my part but I got the impression the members really didn't want new girls joining (after they announced that none of the candidates made the group Aipon tweeted something about them wanting the chance to prove to their management that they can be successful as 9 members). Because of the failed audition I always thought of Palet as the PASSPO rejects, but I'm giving them another chance because the new girl is interesting. At the time it wasn't apparent that they would get their own group because (1) the girls had all just been publicly rejected and (2) they weren't that talented (at least not back then). There was one cool fan in this forum who correctly predicted that a new group would form though, but it definitely wasn't obvious at the time. (wonders if she is still a fan)

sorry if I'm too lazy and this video was already posted here, but someone cares to explain what's the history behind this?
ぱすぽ(仮) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCPkCqF6WE4#ws)

like when it was made, for what purpose and so on. I can only recognize Nachu, MioMio, Naomin and Macocchan there.  :sweatdrop: (edit: Sako and Annya too. Morishi, Aipon, Yukky and Mushu, no way)
This is a year late, but your question was never answered and this is an awesome video! (I was bored the other day and read up on all the stuff I missed) The footage was from before the group was formed (2009), you can see the other candidate members in the video (hence the "仮"). When the group was being created there were 19 candidates (all girls from the platinum agency). Leading up to their debut they did these events where fans could meet them, because ultimately the fans were going to be able to vote on the girls, and help determine the final lineup. Back then they let fans vote on stuff like the name of the group, logo design, and other random things.

Yea, me and Caio are going there. He already got the ticket for me :) He can be such nice guy - until you know him better, of course :D Would be great to see you there.

Too bad though, that the focus of the anniversary turns now to the graduation.

Well, and Mako being nice to Caio: Don't know if I can tell you now. He may want to use it for his blog. ;)

Oh, and btw Shaun: Haven't you told me at TIF that you like Makochan? But when re-reading your blog it was actually Morishi. What is true now? :confused:
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 29, 2014, 02:05:47 PM
Awesome, I'm glad you both are going. It's unfortunate that it's gone from a New Years show to a graduation concert, but it should be a really unique experience considering graduations are the most rare type of concert. And it's a cool venue, although now I wonder if they could have booked someplace even bigger than Tokyo Dome City Hall.

Hmm, trying to figure out how to explain my fandom for Makochan and Morishi without sounding like a loser who changes oshimen (at one time Nachu, Socrates, Annya, Mako-T, and Morrissey have been my favorites). Back when I was going to their shows I preferred Morishi, but I changed back a while ago (2012). I'm typically loyal to my favorite member, PASSPO was a unique situation.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: wattstax on September 30, 2014, 03:01:34 AM
But it would have been interesting to know if the name of PASSPO alone would have been enough to fill TDCH. I still have a hard time believing they are that famous. And even thinking of Budokan...
But anyway, the graduation should lead to a soldout venue now. Which will hopefully give a boost to the group.

But regarding your changing oshi: Don't worry, I can relate. Every member of PASSPO has oshi worthy traits. That is why always talk with other girls besides Yucky. Even gave Naomin a present. (She was my initial oshi btw, until I met them directly.)
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆

see?!? do you need more proof that the sky is really falling??? Shawn even returned to the forum!  :panic: :panic: :panic:




but is nice to read his inputs about Passpo and Palet`s past.  :)




Shawn, are u going to January concert too? c`mon, now more than ever u HAVE to. Wattstax can pay u the flight, he is rich.  ;)




regarding me and Macocchan: in a very eerie coincidence, after all these past months (don't remember anymore when was my first Passpo one-man. one year before? two? whatever) that sunday I finally decided to talk with Macocchan. and she was very nice with me, gotta admit it. (sounded a little fake but I was expecting it, np. yeah she was nicer than Nachu, but that's not an accomplishment. nowadays I think even a sex doll would be more friendly to me than my own oshimen  :cry: why I didn't pick Sako as my oshimen back then? dammit)

so we started to joke that meeting me was the reason that made her pull the gun now.  :P some people could even argue that it's not so farfetched hypothesis but let's not extend it here so much.  :nervous although I was really thinking about opening a thread in 2ch titled like "passenger no minnasan, gomenasai!" talking about this coincidence. just for the lulz.  :lol:

btw I talked with Annya for the first time too.

Oppaipon :lol: And I kind of wish Nachu wasn't your favorite, because then I could make fun of her XD But then again, if you chose Sako or Makochan from the beginning, they may have graduated years ago!

If Tobi could pay for my plane ticket, that would be awesome! Thanks so much :P Jk, I actually have enough frequent flyer miles (real miles, not the PASSPO type), although I was saving them for trips in spring and summer, but I can figure that out later. I can handle Japan's winter better than their summer and knowing you guys will be there is really motivating. I have to wait for GEM to announce their Christmas concert w/ SUPER GiRLS before I can seriously think about this (I'm an addict). I guess it worked out that the new iPhones are still sold out over here, otherwise I would have blown my budget.

It looks like there are several options for tickets (arena standing, balcony 1-3, and photo/video seating). Which ones did you guys choose? Knowing Caio, definitely free standing, but then I'm also remembering the unfortunate glasses incident.

You can still make fun of Nachu. Caio does the same :smhid I think, she is lovely girl. She just treats him like he deserves :twothumbs

You also want to come in Spring and Summer next year? We have to synchronise our schedule then! Seriously!!
The Super Girls Show sounds nice too.
I also would need a new iPhone, as mine is pretty low on battery duration. But I don't want to spend the money right now for obvious travel reasons. Me being rich would be nice ;)

We got ourselves Arena Standing tickets. I have my new glasses and I succeeded to bring them unharmed to the Blaze show. So hopefully all works out :D But I will never again stand in the front middle! On the sideline is fine though!

And Caio, a friend on Twitter pointed me to the Idol Koushien on 01.11.2014. Even Next is there. And your 'new' Natsumi ;P

c'mon Shaun, don't treat me like if I were one of those adolescents that get all emotional if you make a joke (or a criticism) around their favorite girl (or group).  ;) you can make fun of Nachu whenever you like, specially since she is a girl so easy to poke at.  :nervous yeah we are obviously going to the arena standing area, I want to mosh like if it were a BiS show, baby!  :twisted:




I saw about this Idol Koushien, looks nice but no way I'm going to it. Passpo + Hime Kyun + Chu-Z >>>> Tsuki to Taiyou + Hime Kyun + Next Shojo. Akasaka is closer to my home than Shin-Kiba too.




oh, and one more thing: Tsuki to Taiyou's Natsumi >>>> Passpo's Natsumi.  :P :P :P

Yeah, I know :) I'm the same way.

Ok, that's a lie, I'm totally protective of GEM :twisted:. But what I find amusing about Natchu (the PASSPO one) isn't anything against her personality, it's her dancing which I think is hilarious. Sometimes I'll just watch her to amuse myself, like "I wonder what Natchu's up to" and then I'll have to find her, since they usually put her in the back. There is a classic video of what I'm talking about, it's several years old though, and I finally found it but the youtube account was deleted. It was basically her walking off stage while the rest of the group was holding a pose... and then she realized it, stumbled back in line, and posed the wrong way :lol:

And I hope there's moshing. If I go I need to redeem myself for not being a crazy wota for Houkago Princess (although to my credit, even though I'm a fan, I don't know them that well XD). For GEM I'm a totally different person 8) Although for a graduation concert, once the "graduation" part begins and the members start crying non-stop, I dare you to mosh then!

Anyway I should be able to go, but I won't know for a while. Although it's not like the holidays are that far away.

edit: I just realized Tobi has a blog! That's awesome! Kind of ironic, I was actually thinking the other day that he should. But now I feel like an idiot for not knowing sooner :P. I wish I didn't have a massive paper to write, which I haven't even started and is due in two days, but I'll definitely check it out asap.

Post by: tsutomo on October 01, 2014, 10:06:41 AM
well, maybe becuz I`m already used to some really not very talented groups (trying to be polite), I don't have so much problem with her poor dancing. it makes me feel closer to her since I'm a poor dancer too.  :lol:

about blogging, only a few weeks ago (when I entered and left some comments there) I discovered that you had a blog too. rofl never payed attention that your sign had a link. when I have some free time I'll start trolling on the comments of your blogs, guys. stay aware  :P

If you want a poor dancer, watch Rioton from Babyraids. Compared to her, Nachu is Annya level.

off topic:

I entered in Wattstax's blog and... why it has an Annya color background, not Yukky?  :P

saw you put a link to my blog there, I'll link your (and Shaun's) blog in mine later, too. so I don't forget to visit them from time to time.  :nervous

I'll try to read all the TIF reports you guys made and write mine soon, sucking info from yours.  :grin:


on topic:

I'm in Passpo's mail listing and yesterday I received one of their regular mails. as expected, this time it was Macocchan who wrote it. she told two things I thought were interesting enough to share here: 1- she says she had been privately thinking about leaving the group for around THREE YEARS already. this explains a lot, imo, regarding her behavior. now it makes perfect sense why she was most of the time with an uninterested look, when I paid attention to her through these years. 2- she says her dream will be to appear in some dorama and have Passpo playing as the theme song in it. not so farfetched, imo. would be cool, definitely.

ソフトバンク スマホ守護女子高生スマガールズ「つながりやすさを守れ!」篇 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt-H3rTEU-g#ws)

Watched the last half of the 2.5D web show with Anya and Miomio tonight. According to Anya, a while back some annoying guy was trying to hit on Nachu in Shibuya and when she wouldn't give in, he got mad and called her a pig.

Also it seems Anya's mom is a bit of a drunk.

Mio drank some disgusting milk/yogurt/natto/okra/gyoza drink but she got an early birthday cake and a tiara at the end.

Thanks for the info. Will try to find it on youtube. Although I won't understand a thing :D

Was it a passenger, who hit on Nachu?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on October 05, 2014, 03:31:54 AM
From what I understood, it was the typical scumbag kinda guy who hangs around Shibuya and hits on girls. This guy was particularly persistent (and he must have been having a terrible day) if he exploded at Nachu when Anya said she was trying to be as polite as possible.

POPOPO should have it up on YouTube in a few days.

Mio was so cute with her tiara!

I would be pretty pissed too if I got turned down by someone as Nachu. talk about lowering the standards and even then failing. holy shit.  :doh:

if he went after Yukky he could have gotten a happy ending...  :roll:

Don't worry. Noone will think, it was you. Mixedmedia wrote, that she declined this weirdo as politely as possible. Nachu wouldn't be that kind to you  :P

And regarding Yucky, I must disagree. She has the highest standards. Why else would her lines be the shortest? :D
And I be one of her passengers? ;)

Greetings Passpo fans,

I just got into this group recently..the first thing that struck me as I was checking out the members' profiles...

Is it just me, who finds Sakotee a dead ringer for Berryz Koubou's Captain, Shimizu Saki?


(http://runchiarun43.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/tumblr_lhpn9mhgcs1qge7aro1_500.jpg)


(http://apopidols.org/static/img/BeKovkNCAAEy6Pp.jpg)

Could Sako & Saki be possibly related..even distantly, perhaps?  :shocked:

Even Sako's voice, manner of speaking, mannerisms is somewhat similar to Captain. Maybe Sako is Saki's long-lost sister?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on October 18, 2014, 04:27:29 PM
Having seen Sakoti up close before but never being that much into Berryz to look at "Captain" that closely, maybe there's a bit of similarity around a little around the eyes/nose or even the way they smile with their mouths closed? Sakoti is tiny and since Captain is 10cm shorter, she must look downright microscopic up close (exaggeration, but still).

So, I noticed that Naomi started an Instagram a few months ago http://instagram.com/naomichaaaan (http://instagram.com/naomichaaaan)

And it seems like Yuukkii started one too http://instagram.com/yuukiistagram (http://instagram.com/yuukiistagram)

But this week Morishi http://instagram.com/mori_shiori (http://instagram.com/mori_shiori)

and Mio http://instagram.com/mio006 (http://instagram.com/mio006)

and Nachu http://instagram.com/nachudayooo (http://instagram.com/nachudayooo) did as well

Hopefully, all the members eventually get one too? Unfortunately, there's no way to confirm (on Instagram) if that's actually them, but since they've been Tweeting (can be confirmed since Twitter has that little blue confirmation badge thing) with links to the accounts, I guess I'll accept that it is their own accounts for now.

Post by: Akokyuu on October 18, 2014, 11:02:26 PM
Hi!

About macochan's graduation, I'm a little sad, but I think that everyone was aware about this. Since a moment she wasn't talking about the group activities but about her own activities (emissions, photos....). Also her role was less important in the latest songs.  So it's not very a surprise.
The group will probably stay like that for a moment, since they all started to play instruments (more or less importants :D).

About Sako and Saki, they are not so similar (eyes and mouth are slightly differents). They are just young and cute Japaneses girls.

About Instagram accounts : yes, they are officials.
Mio started her account since a moment and announced it on Twitter, and then Naomin, Yucky, Natchu and Morishi started one (in this order), and they announced it on twitter too.

To finish, iIwould like to share with what will probably be the photo of the next album ("5 Shunen Kinen Best", coming December 10), and a new uniform ^^ :

Completely agree. I understand the anniversary concept, but this uniform makes them look more idolish then they ever been. I can already imagine the Tour Shirt, they will make out of it :smhid

Morishi looks nice, though. But why is Aipon only put at the side? :huhuh

Post by: wattstax on October 21, 2014, 08:40:05 AM
I still consider the pink uniform as one of their best. ;)

But it is an anniversary show, not a graduation show (officially). So your idea with cake costume isn't that bad. Just get everyone the same Nachu had for her birthday. Just imagine: 9 cakes dancing on stage! Maybe this would even 'gain' them some fans of Chubbyness :lol:

if the plan is selling out all tickets and attracting more fans... they should do like Afilia recently, changing the outfit style completely and making the girls show more skin.  ;) the smaller the best.  :twothumbs (ps: if Oppaipon used that formerly Nachu's lingerie... the group would beat even AKB in sales  :fap )

I'm guessing they're going for the Yayoi Kusama (the old lady famous for putting polka dots on everything) thing?

Those shirts look tragically bad.

Regardless of the new uniforms, I expect Anya to twirl fast enough that her belly will be visible when she does.

I don't remember PASSPO ever wearing belly free uniforms. Please enlighten me! But I could see Annya enjoying that :lol:

Good point there.  :thumbup  the polka dots can create a kind of visual illusion to mask any otherwise-obvious signs of weight gain over the festive season/winter. A tactically astute move  :twisted:

Their uniform isn't that bad! The only problem is that... thing (yes there's no other word for that) on their neck! But except that, it's okay!
And they will probably not use it really often (for the moment, they still have no accessories to show their color). It's a uniform like you can see on they two best of albums.
To me, their tee shirt (the one looking like the himawari uniform) are really worst than this uniform!

To talk about news, seems that PASSPO have a new contract with Beats. Yucky, Morishi, Aipon and Makocchan posted some photos on twitter and instagram with their headphones today.

Oh and since a few week, PASSPO came back in the French/Japanese TV show "Japan in Motion" :
Yucky and Sakoti two weeks ago : http://noco.tv/emission/14902/nolife/japan-in-motion/s11e05-les-pink-babies-a-hiroshima-le-retour-des-passpo (http://noco.tv/emission/14902/nolife/japan-in-motion/s11e05-les-pink-babies-a-hiroshima-le-retour-des-passpo)

All the Beats stuff today seemed odd since the staff Twitter posted a video of Anya and Mio in a video for Ultimate Ears yesterday.

PASSPO☆ 「こんなに入ってくるもん?」玉井杏奈イヤホン作る!<作成編>増井みお (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHvgq4HjMb8#ws)

Then again, custom fit in-ear monitors are completely different than the overpriced status symbols that are Beats. If they got a deal then good for them. Those things sell themselves.

I recall seeing Anya spin so fast one time that I could see her belly button when they were wearing the Himawari uniforms which have a kind of high belt/waist.

Here's some footage of her spinning around while cooking/eating yakisoba in case I can't find a clip of what I was talking about.

@mixedmedia

Few weeks ago, Miomio shows (twitter, again) her in-ear monitor. It was already tat stuff.
But since it's two differents products (only headphone for Beats, no other stuff), isn't impossible that they have contracts for both of them (lots of people have both).
And also, each member only have one of these products (for the moment).
Also, some people feel uncomfortable with one or the other of the products (have to say that in-ear isn't what I prefer :/ )

To bad it is winter. Makes it hard to make out passengers really wearing Nachu's shirt. Or Naomins, with the panties on the back. Do they even think of the wotas who have to wear this? Or are they making fun of them. That again would be kind of cool. ;)

@Akokyuu true, it's pretty much a free for all when it comes to people marketing/promoting stuff in Japan. I'm just glad it's getting colder so I can wear my "air traffic controller" over ear headphones again. Although I'm sure the price of UEs will make me want to cry, I like earphones with the loop because they help them stay in the ear when moving around. If anyone wants at least 2 pairs of never used iPhone/iPod earbuds, let me know.

Yes, she is ill, though already tweeting again :twothumbs
But haven't heard if and when she can perform again.

Sakoti was well enough to perform tonight at Akasaka Halloween but Makocchan wasn't there because she had something else. Was a bit strange seeing them with 8 members. They were all dressed as Waldo (from "Where's Waldo?" or as he is called in Japan, Wally) thanks to Yukkii.

Very few people can pull off high-waisted shorts IMO but Yukkii is definitely one of them. Be on the lookout for photographic proof (as long as the photogs in Akasaka Blitz weren't slacking) soon!

Set List
1. Step & Go
2. Candy Room
3. Sakura Komachi
4. Wanted
5. Kucha Love
6. Himawari

There was even a small mosh pit during Himawari!

Here you can see a bit of Yucky in her costume:

Although I oshi her, I am glad not seeing the group in this clothes perform. Don't like the glasses and some of their hair styles. But it is nice to see them in different clothing for a show, other than their uniform. And it is belly free.

Was anything different without Makaochan, performance wise? The tracklist had no Mako-heavy song, as I can see.
Few days before they even performed with only seven members, when Sacotee was ill. I was always wondering what they would do live if Aipon or Morishi were ill.

Mosh Pit? Not mine. I already struggle with the Step&Go left-and-right running  :lol:

Have you seen the new shirts and hoodies they sell on tour now? Designed by Mio again. The hoodie is okay, with a skeleton in flight attendant uniform. Though it looks a bit cartoony. But the shirts and a towel has a shark motive. What is the connection between a shark and PASSPO?

You need to see Yukkii dressed like that from the side for the best results, probably. Hopefully there will be some on stage shots soon. It's a long weekend here in Japan (tomorrow is Culture Day, a national holiday). I was pretty amazed since I remember seeing her with that giant burger on Twitter a while back.

Didn't get to check out the goods tables since they had different groups selling goods at different times. http://www.akasakahalloween.jp/1101.html (http://www.akasakahalloween.jp/1101.html)
Hime Kyun Fruit Can was on and they were dressed as maids so I didn't make it down to check the PASSPO table in time.

I bought the event shirt and some iron-on patches on the way out though. http://www.akasakahalloween.jp/goods.html (http://www.akasakahalloween.jp/goods.html)

Perhaps it was because I was a little hungover but, I could have sworn that they said the set of 24 patches was only 6000 yen and it flew over my head.

The second link just says mobile members have priority to get tickets right now. Regular ticket sales should start soon. I wonder who else will get added to the evening show or if they'll just do more songs. Since when is Shiichan a DJ?

As someone who hasn't paid much attention to Makocchan, I didn't notice too much different. I barely even noticed that Nachu was there to be honest. Sorry Nachu fans!

Post by: wattstax on November 02, 2014, 09:15:30 AM
Hehe, you mean the pic where her belly looked pregant? Reminded me of her post when she was eating a giant gyoza :lol:

Well, idols in maid uniforms always have priority. I get that ;) Who are those guys anyway? Male idols? Or just moderators? But so many?
Patches are new for me. Never saw those.

Ah, thanks. I presume their will be more groups coming. Though I would prefer longer sets, as I really like all the groups there and don't need any more. Would be great for akushukai events and such as well.
Well, I never got those DJ thing. What does a DJ anyway? It's not like playing a instrument like a guitar or drums.

Makochan never made an impression live to me as well. But she has some of her 'own' songs, like 'Pink no Parachute' or 'Kimi Iro no Samba'. And well, Nachu - is Nachu. I mostly only see her when Annya teases her again. :P

Link to the gyoza challenge: http://ima.goo.ne.jp/column/article/1481.html (http://ima.goo.ne.jp/column/article/1481.html)
I went there with a friend when he tried to take on the giant gyoza. He also failed. That thing is ridiculously big and you need to order it 2 days in advance. 9,000 yen but you get it back if you can eat it all in an hour.

I meant that fans of Yukkii's curves will want to see her in those shorts. Most girls look like they're wearing diapers or "mom jeans" when they try to do the high waist thing that is allegedly in fashion.

"Those guys" were Japanese comedians so between the performances they'd come on and do their bits. I took advantage of that time to go to the restroom or walk around a bit.

There was a machine to put the patches on the shirts but I said I'd just do it later. Until I went up to the table, I thought they were pin badges (which I would have totally bought all of them if they were). Oh well, it's just money and I've spent more for less before.

Looks like Makocchan was doing a Dangan Ronpa play with Fujie Reina and Ishida Haruka and the last day is tomorrow. http://www.cornflakes.jp/dangan/cast/ (http://www.cornflakes.jp/dangan/cast/) But true Makocchan fans would have known that already right?

Annya slapped Nachu in the butt and then "threw" it into the crowd at one point.

I know a few DJs who are actually good but it seems like anyone is saying they are a DJ now. Aside from basic mixing of the songs to ensure seamless transitions, the hard part seems to be knowing what songs to play at the right time. I'm not expecting most so-called DJs to be making live remixes or doing any crazy scratching or beat juggling though. In the right hands, turntables, drum machines, mixers, etc. can be like an instrument but it seems like a lot of people just press play and wave their hands and throw cakes into the crowd.

One hour?  :shocked

I know what you mean. Especially since the cut of the regular uniform isn't perfect for her. Damn, I missed something then...

Ah, comedians. You chose the best alternative with taking a walk then, I guess  :D

Annya "threw" what in the crowd? Nachu? :lol:

Well, I have close to none respect for electronic music. So I wouldn't know. Even though Yucky does act as a DJ as well in the band version. But all is better than playing a tambourine, I presume. :lol:

Who is your fave by the way, if there is any?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on November 02, 2014, 02:14:07 PM
You missed out on some Yukkii booty (by Japanese standards anyway)!

She whacked Nachu in the butt and then "threw" the smell into the crowd. Interpret that as you will.

Anya was the first one I noticed since she wore glasses way back when they started and then I kind of wasn't following them for a few years due to the "48 group" vortex I was in.

For "favorites" it's probably tied between Anya and Morishi but I do like Naomi, Yukkii, Sakoti, and Mio a bit now too. Met a girl who's working on producing an idol group of her own and she was visibly disappointed when I didn't say my favorite was Mio (which was hers). Anyways, I need to watch more.

Impressions thus far:
Anya: mischievous
Morishi: tomboy, looks like fun to go drinking with
Aipon: girly and sexy
Naomi: outgoing and fashionable
Sakoti: a bit plain but works hard
Yukkii: the older sister
Mio: otaku little sister
Nachu: a little too "my pace", she looks a bit like Noro Kayo (AKB48/SDN48)
Makocchan: cute but seems like she could be high maintenance

Just my opinions so far so they can change.

Anyway, here's a short clip of Sakoti and Suzuki Airi from ℃-ute!!!

AKB? Hm...

I understand your trouble in deciding on a specific girl. I can relate to every member as well. But I must praise you for your impression on the girls: You nailed it! Only want to add, that Sacotee may seem like that at first, but after specifically watching and talking to her, she made on of the best impressions ever. But that is just my opinion. And I refrain from rating their fashion sense. I have some doubts about it. Must write about it some day.

Well anyway, let's drink a beer some time with Morishi together  :lol:

http://youtu.be/N0j4el4Vfeg (http://youtu.be/N0j4el4Vfeg)


Well, I beg to differ with regards to Sakoti, my friend. Sako may not be attractive with a charm much like Aipon (sexy and girlish), but I'm drawn to her somehow...maybe because unlike Aipon, she has that "girl next door" quality and appeal that I'm so loving. Not too overpoweringly beautiful or oozing with sex appeal, but cute and approachable. She's one of the girls you could realistically ask out on a fun date and go steady with as a girlfriend at some point (maybe because I could relate to her type.. I dunno). Somebody who shared the same opinion as me once said Sakoti would make a good wife, though Aipon would prolly make a better mistress (sorry Aipon fans, pls dun kill me)

After watching her in this clip, I couldn't agree more...

http://youtu.be/rZYspIcTqmM (http://youtu.be/rZYspIcTqmM)


But that being said, when she does goof off, its pretty entertaining...so yeah...I wouldn't call her personality bland or plain...she's calm and composed, stable for the most part, but she could be crazy backstage goofing off with the other crewmates too!

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on November 03, 2014, 03:05:24 PM
Did not expect so much backlash to such a short first impression about Sakoti. I meant no disrespect.

She definitely has the "girl next door" or "cute girl at work that becomes more attractive as you really get to know her" thing going on. While I do ask people why they like their favorites, it's mainly because maybe they can let me know about something I haven't noticed yet.

I went down to Village Vanguard to get the free paper that Sakoti writes for but it didn't have the interview with Suzuki Airi in it. I'll go check again tomorrow.

As a hopeless DD who doesn't have one group, much less one member that I can fully commit to, I guess I'm pleased that more serious fans said I came sort of close to understanding what the crew of PASSPO is like. Anyway, so much to watch/hear and not enough time to do it!

What is the connection between a shark and PASSPO?

Isn't the programme called Shaku Uma TV? Man, I just finished watching all the episodes last week and I'm already wishing they would have another challenge-type TV shows like that for Passpo.

Speaking of these kinda shows, does anyone know if there are any full episodes of the show where Passpo was squaring off against each other in paintball, wearing Army outfits and all? Can't seem to find it on youtube.

Regarding the crew/members, I'm sure everyone of us have their preferred member so please dun consider it a backlash or feel offended. For me, it just so happens that the girl who is understated and did not stand out the most, (Sako-chan) who first caught my eye as far as this group is concerned. For others, one may prefer the hyper and genki Morishi, or Aipon, even Yucky. Personally, like I said, all of them are still growing on me and I have no doubt I will find more endearing qualities of every members and will start to love every one of them. It is sad though that Makocchan, the frail-looking but talented crew member is gonna be graduating soon, just as I'm entering Passpo's fandom. But I guess the group will move on to bigger things even without the talents of Makoto.

No bad memory at all - never saw it :P I hate Baseball. I would have watched if they had played football (the European version).
So my statement stands: Not fond of this shark. Won't buy!

And guys, as a prevention measure: calm down regarding Sacotee or whoever. No one bad mouthed her. Even if, each his own - and me the best :D
Sorry mixedmedia...

Instead let is talk about all the Greatness that is Yucky! ;) jk

The chances for a new TV program are slim. To expensive (and useless) for a group like PASSPO. They are no biggies. And the Makochan graduation makes everything even more unstable.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on November 04, 2014, 12:23:38 PM
No worries. I'm never too serious, especially since I'm a DD and can't possibly remember details about every member of every group. Any recommendations or testimonials are welcome.

Regardless of the baseball theme, Shaku Uma seemed pretty boring. On the other hand, Muriyari PASSPO is pretty interesting so far. I'd much rather they just keep doing web shows which can be watched again on YouTube instead of worrying about getting another TV show that's on in the middle of the night.

If anyone's going through Shibuya Station, there's a big billboard with Aipon facing the Shinjuku/Ikebukuro bound Yamanote trains. Was too self-conscious to snap a pic the last few times I was there (morning after Halloween) because it was so crowded and I was dead tired. Sorry.

And that Morishi...I gotta have what she's smoking, man..it must be some powerful stuff to get that real high all day long.

Morishi showed off her knowledge of French fries from different fast food places.
Yukkii showed off her cardboard box art skills.
Naomin's hair looked great.
Nachu was Nachu.

They also did a Garigarikun eating relay.

I figure since they have a flight in Yokohama on Saturday, she'll be drinking a bit after that?

Apparently, Morishi eats fries every day. If she didn't get the answers correct, they were saying as a punishment, she couldn't eat fries for a month/year. She was practically giving a clinic on how the fries taste different at different fast food places.

If I remember correctly, the next one will have: Aipon, Sakoti, Nachu, and Makocchan on November 28th or something like that.

If you watch them onstage, especially Anya, you will see that the groping is not limited to just backstage.

Fynmorph, do you want to do an overseas chat on a future show?

I know I'll never get picked because 1) I'm not "overseas" now, 2) I look Japanese, 3) I can speak Japanese decently enough to arouse suspicion that I might be a "plant". Nor would I be interested in being picked since I don't want to be on camera.

Looks like they should have switched overseas fans. Makocchan fan is on when she's not there just like how Yukkii wasn't there when the French guy was on! Seems super random, or maybe it's on purpose?

http://youtu.be/O8DsQNBO9pI (http://youtu.be/O8DsQNBO9pI)

Apparently, all Makocchan fans should know the word ダイオウグソクムシ Daioh Gusoku Mushi (Giant Isopod) because she thinks it's cute. It's a definite reason that she isn't my favorite crew member. Don't hate me.

I guess @ykm_mtkra was Yukkii's old username? I only know her as @yuukiistagram.

So dumb of me watching it again after midnight. Feel like going to the 24 hour McD for fries again...

I actually like the Great Isopod, as it reminds me of those extinct creatures Trilobits. Still I find it anything else but 'Cho kawaii'...

Looks like Anya's not the type to put up with Mako's crap like the others so far. She even had her making the okonomiyaki.

Been to that place in Osaka and it is pretty amazing! Will definitely go again (even if they hadn't gone there).

Need to find that takoyaki place in Sangenjaya later. Looks like Nachu would be fun to drink with too.

I'm not really a Mako fan, but just from watching that clip its obvious Annya doesnt really get along that well with her. Maybe not hate her or anything, but just not feeling the chemistry between the 2...as opposed to maybe Annya-Mio-Sakotee relationship
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: wattstax on November 21, 2014, 01:39:59 PM
Man, Annya really seems to like her H&M sweater. She practically wore it all the time over the last few weeks.
Makochan looks much better now than in the recent clip with Yukki.

And great to see there is oil for the hot plate. I didn't know about it last time :roll: Which part of Osaka is it by the way? Didn't recognize it.

But the impression of Annya not liking Mako may result from the fact, that they don't really interact with each other here, instead more talking with the camera man / manager(?).

Just found out about an uploader of PASSPO stuff: Passpo☆TV since they uploaded Hacchake Sensation from the 2.5D show.

Finally (even though it's 360p) another video of WANTED!

PASSPO☆ - WANTED!! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq5fIciHqF8#ws)

The quality of the upload for Wing is better though. And onstage groping/fan service.

Sorry if already posted.

Chigusa is in Tenjinbashi. Every July they have a "Gal Mikoshi" which is basically a lot of young girls carrying around and shaking those portable shrines in painfully hot summer weather.

Any clips of Anya x Sakoti?

I own too much Uniqlo so maybe it's time to mix it up with some H&M?

I don't like H&M. Maybe because here everyone wears it.
And thanks for telling about the location in Osaka.

But what is the meaning of Makochan haters?
It is interesting to see how different Mako can be - f.e. mischievious / jokingly with Yukki and here more shy and passive.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: bluewind78 on November 22, 2014, 09:24:57 AM
Though I'm not really into Makocchan, I wanna stress here that I don't hate her. For all you know, she is just acting spoilt when in the presence of Morishi and Yukky, you know, kinda like how you can normally be your REAL SELF when you're with a really close friend you've known for years and share a lot of history together, as compared to just being a normal friend. I think to Makocchan, she considers Anna the latter. From the videos we could see Annya hangs out more with Mio and Sako...maybe because their personalities complement each other (and Annya can act "spoilt/childish" in the presence of the older two. Well, at least this is just how I figured...I could be wrong. :P2

How in the world was she claiming to be the head of a Japanese event in the US if her Japanese was soooo terrible? I guess anyone can say they are anything on the Internet? Here's the page for the event. http://www.idolmatsuri.com/ (http://www.idolmatsuri.com/) Aside from Halko Momoi, Aither, RYUtist, and DJ Amaya, the list of performers looks kinda blah.

I totally forgot to check that the show ended at 8:30 (usually ends at 9) and went to SUBWAY to get a sandwich.

Whoever put a copyright claim on the 11.20 Showroom can go die in a fire! I hadn't watched it yet and there's that thing where they muted the audio!!!!!

Hurry up and watch this week's Showroom before some petty jerk has the audio yanked from this one too! 3/4ths of the Hachakke-tai: Morishi, Naomi, and Nachu.

I wonder why they didn't fade out on Makocchan but halfway through one of Sakoti's lines. Special tactic? Random coincidence? Is it just me or is the video for this song not listed on the DVD for the album? Seems like a waste since they spent the money to make it.

2nd best farewell song I've seen this year after "Mikaeri Bijin".

^ It's a random coincidence because it's a cut version of the video as it usually is when it's from the record label.

And yes it appears as if it's not an extra on any of the special editions so maybe they are saving it for the next real CD, this one is just Greatest hits.

The Internet can be used to more easily stalk people so, maybe? I guess it definitely sounded like that but I guess since I'm in Tokyo I like to try and figure out where people are filming things, especially if I've been there before.

Saw the full version of "TRACKS". Would have liked to see them use a close-up while Makocchan was singing her final solo lines but still a good video. If the short version got you misty-eyed, the full version might destroy you.

Looks like PASSPO is doing events for the release of the album (released tomorrow) starting today. Was gonna go since Ikebukuro is close but it looks like the events get more and more amazing as the week goes on! Today they just hand you the CD when you buy it and a poster.

Aside from the ones with mini-lives, Makocchan is by herself and the rest of the girls are split into 2 groups. The one in Chiba on Saturday might be the best one since it includes a mini-live and handshake/cheki with Makocchan if you buy her version (or something).

January 10th is a mini idol festival where they'll be performing on the same stage as Babyraids, Idoling!!!, Up Up Girls (Kari), Him Kyun Fruit Can, etc.

http://zizoo.jp/yumenoidolmuseum/ (http://zizoo.jp/yumenoidolmuseum/)

You'll probably be able to get a handshake or something when they have their goods table though?

palet was formed with the intent of putting them in PASSPO, no? I feel like they're getting a bit closer to them in sound now that they have some harder songs but I still have no idea what their concept is, considering most groups under Platinum have one (Pre-dia is more mature and sexy, 3min. do 3 minute dance songs and were at Noodol Cafe, FYT are yankii teachers, Band Maid are maids that play instruments). According to their description, they're meant to be more traditional idols, which is probably why they don't really leave a strong impression on me? But I guess at this point, standing out by being "normal" can work too?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: Rezar on December 09, 2014, 08:42:21 PM
Yeah I find palet a bit too generic sounding but their latest one with the masked guys playing was... well not as boring :)

That mini festival sounds great, I'm new to the whole idol thing but I do like Babyraids & Him Kyun Fruit Can.

@wattstax, thanks for your answer.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: wattstax on December 10, 2014, 07:12:32 AM
The 'disadvantage' of the festival: With the exception of Tokyo Performance Doll I like all the groups more than enough to want to see their live as well as participate as their events. Luckily I see Himekyun and Doll Elements some days earlier already.
But events are important, if groups like Up Up Girls or Babyraids do chekis. It is rare for them. If Passpo does it, it will become even better.

Looks like the full video for TRACKS is on the DVD that comes with the First Class version of the album. Makocchan's announcement is also on the DVD and about 7 minutes long. I think people weren't as shocked to hear about it since it seemed that's what it was going to be as soon as everyone else went off stage.

Aside from LinQ and the opening acts that I don't know much about, I like just about everyone else appearing on January 10th. Maybe I could go out for a bit during TPD since they seem to do the same set every time.

I agree. I care for every other group there besides them. Did I read it correctly, that events will be held right after the stage performance? So events might interfere with the lives? I at least need to participate with Passpo, as they won't do anything on their New Years Flight or around it. And very important Babyraids, in the hope of chekis! Up Up depends on the type of the event. Probably skip the events Doll Elements and Himekyun, as I will see them some days before.
Both sets will be the same for every group? Anyway, we can greet each other if we see us there. Or not ;)
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on December 13, 2014, 04:43:08 PM
I'm guessing that both sets will be different since idol fans are the type to go to both shows. Can't say for sure since I haven't seen both day and evening shows for PASSPO yet though. Hard decision if I have to pick one since Hime Kyun is coming all the way from Ehime and it's been a while since I've seen Doll Elements...I did go to Backstage a few weeks ago but it was not that great even though it was a Friday evening...we shall see.

Got pulled along to 2.5D again on Friday and saw Hacchake-Tai and Pla2me since there was a "surprise guest", a new group Musubizm making their first public appearance. http://musubizm.asobisystem.com/ (http://musubizm.asobisystem.com/) I guess it was a big deal since Kimura Misa is one of those Harajuku models and she's making her idol debut with a group. They're pretty good in that "they sound a bit like Dempagumi" sort of way but when they're under the same agency as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Tempura Kidz, it's not that surprising.

Pla2me was awesome but some annoying disinterested PASSPO fans were in front of me not even watching the performance. Perhaps part of me being a DD is knowing how hard the idols are trying so I consider it rude to be where they can see you and not paying attention to them.

The PASSPO fans went off when Hacchake-Tai came on. There was a guy with a Yukkii coat (but it was printed and not embroidered) and a guy with a super bright yellow light for Morishi. The temperature must have gone up at least 10 degrees while they were on. With them always talking about doing stuff on their own, I hope they can get more songs and make a video soon. Hopefully POPOPOPO will have it up soon.

I second that. I always do the same when I happen to see a show of groups I don't really care about. TIF was a good example for it, while waiting already at the stage for another group.
Pla2me is great anyway - if they keep their electronic style.

Not sure about Hachake Tai. There songs / performance are okay and I like the members in it. But I don't really get this sub-unit approach many groups are doing. Even stranger, that Hachake Tai will now be to opening act for the Anniversary Flight.

It kind of makes sense though since those 4 are the "hard-drinking party girl older sisters" of the group and groups have had sub-groups since at least Onyanko Club in the 1980's.

I know Hot Stage is where all the big groups get to perform but it's a PITA to get to if you just want to watch one group in between a bunch of others. Moving ANYWHERE is a PITA at Tokyo Idol Festival with the heat and all the stages spread out so far from each other. I'm worried about them being the opening act since PASSPO is gonna try do ALL THEIR SONGS on New Year's Day (and they actually sing, or will they?)! Looks like it might end up being the longest concert I'll have ever gone to for one group if they do. Better get those hi-fi ear plugs because tinnitus isn't something I want.

Off topic: Seems this forum (and a lot of others) aren't that into Pla2me (or any of the other BiS related groups) based on how much is posted but they're missing out! Looks like their "one-man" is the dame day as the Idol Museum event in Akasaka. At the very least, I need to go to one of their release events that have a mini-live just like last time because it was awesome!

Anyway, looks like I have to mail out this thing for TRACKS tomorrow if I want a chance at getting some "signed goods" from a member but seems I can only choose one! Decisions, decisions! Mosishi? Anya? Yukkii? Sakoti? Makocchan (because this would be the last chance)?

Despite seeing Hacchake-tai a few times, I still don't remember Yukkii's name that she uses in the group. I know that Moshishi is "Gen", Naomi is "Zaian", and Nachu is "Nasu" though.

I've heard about one of Morishi's alias, "Gen". Remember once in a showroom episode they were laughing..was it a funny character Morishi created for herself? And Naomi also has got one more nickname, I think is "Kenya"  :P

Whichever one you choose, do tell about the experience.  :)

I was dying at BiS' final concert and that was "only 3 and a half hours long". I just wonder how the audience will hold up since it's on New Year's Day and people generally drink and stay out all night to countdown the new year and celebrate. I'm guessing PASSPO has more songs than BiS does but that also means there might be some songs I don't like so I can go outside to take a break. Saw that they were doing a "band PASSPO" rehearsal the other day so maybe there will be a few minutes to rest while they get that set up? Will buy the DVD when it comes out anyway.

By all means, talk to Pla2me if you can! Saki is so nice and Mari is adorable! If you like anime, there's something to talk to them about. Even though I told Saki I would go home and watch Kill La Kill, I haven't finished it yet.

Hopefully, I'll be getting something signed by Morishi in a few weeks. I could only pick one and she stuck out the most in my mind having gone to her birthday live in Yokohama and being impressed by her "ability" to tell which potatoes are from which fast food restaurant just by the taste while blindfolded. And she sings pretty good too, IMO.

Ah man, come on, that's not ultra-sound! More like around 5 KHz or so, annoying ultra-sound is some chargers that have a whine on the back, or CRT TVs and monitors. These have annoying ultra-sounds.

The one at 1:28 is a guitar squeal you do on harmonics. Play 1st string and touch it around 6th fret lightly with high gain and there it is, this harmonic squeal.

Edit: by the way, I haven't found the same harmonics in TRACKS, what part is it?

The sound in STEP & GO is most likely a "pinch harmonic" which is extremely common in hard rock and metal guitar playing. Zakk Wylde was probably most famous for using them a lot when he was with Ozzy.

Apparently, PASSPO was in Santa outfits for last night's fan club event.

the two posters from here that were with me in the big TDCH concert already know my opinion about the show... I`ll make later a report about it on my blog... but well, who cares?  :lol:

since it`s already an old topic, I`ll only say here that I expected something NEW and BIG (not only regarding duration). since I got none of this, I felt disappointed. not a bad show, but for someone like me that saw so many shows of them already, this looked like just one more ordinary one-man they make every month. and seemed kinda a rushed one in terms of production (or lack of).

but okay, since wattstax told me Nachu got Macocchan`s part in Uhae, I`ll forgive the group.  :P

It looks like it was a place that had microbrews so the beer was probably a bit stronger than normal too.

Saw Naomi at an event for Takenaka Natsumi's (PASSPO's choreographer) book release and she had at least 2 BIG lemon sours and didn't seem affected at all. Since the the theme was comparing idols to Sailor Moon and anime characters, I was kind of disappointed that Naomi got picked over Mio since Naomi doesn't really know about anime.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: wattstax on January 25, 2015, 07:15:23 AM
You were there? For PASSPO or the whole event in general?

As often as the girls drink beer, seeing effects on it will take a while now, I am sure ;)
But maybe Naomi got picked because of it as the general audience doesn't know much about it as well?
What is Takenaka-sensei's book about?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on January 26, 2015, 03:34:51 PM
Was there for the event in general. Takenaka discusses how she sees similar qualities between female idols and anime heroines like Sailor Moon. Another section of the book talks about how female fans of idols enjoy them, sort of a roundtable discussion with other known female idol wota. I think Naomi got picked since she's really close to Takenaka, she was called her "inspiration". Naomi compared the members of PASSPO to characters from some anime I never heard of before; Doremi-chan.

Sakai Hitomi was pretty impressive. She compared the members of Idoling!!! to characters from at least 3-4 different anime and commented "compare the members of PASSPO to characters from Dragon Ball!" I haven't really kept up with Idoling!!! since 4th gen but Sakacchi's talk got me thinking I need to go back.

Anyway, now I know there's a "fancy beer place" in Koenji now. It's a cool area of Tokyo with lots of used clothing stores cheaper than Harajuku or Kichijoji. I think it's known for it's punk music scene and awa odori festival in the summer.

And they finally had the official "seitansai" for Anya at the Platinum Sonic "3-man" (PASSPO, palet, predia) on Friday (2/13) so purple lightsticks and handkerchiefs (?) for her. Even though @JAM was the day after her birthday (2/1) at the same venue, I guess because it was someone else's event, it didn't count? Regardless, there was a ton of purple lightsticks that night too.

Hey everyone. First post here. I'm a new Passpo fan. I discovered them last fall. I just loooove the mix of pop vocals and a rock sound. They have so many catchy songs! So far I've purchased One world and Jejejejet. I was tempted to buy one of their shows but they don't have anything on blu ray? That's a little strange...

Anyway, I was really surprised to hear that one of them left recently. My knowledge of Japanese music is limited and I was only aware of one band that had its members graduate, Sakura Gakuin. Now in regards to Passpo, how does the graduation process work? Is it based on how much time they're in the band? or is it based on their age? Will they ever replace the graduating members? It kinda sucks IMO. The current lineup is fantastic. I hate to think that in a few years the lineup might be completely different.

Welcome :)

No graduation is just the term used when someone leaves an idol group on good terms (as opposed to being fired) - it's actually Sakura Gaukuin that is different because in that group graduation literally means they graduate from the group because of their age.

In a few years PASSPO probably won't exist anymore, being a pop-idol is something for young girls, they do it until they either get their dream job like say become an actress or they just go on with their lives getting a normal job, getting married and such.

And since you mention Sakura Gaukin I assume you're the one that pm'ed me on reddit asking for a Passpo site ;)

Also I made a crude writeup on PASSPO on the kawaiimetal reddit -> http://www.reddit.com/r/KawaiiMetal/comments/2w6z14/introduction_to_passpo/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/KawaiiMetal/comments/2w6z14/introduction_to_passpo/)

Hi and welcome Clem84!
Glad to see new fans :).

Hum indeed they don't have blu-ray, but even on DVD, the quality you can have is really poor. They are recording their flights without thinking of lots of details, so the quality isn't really great. Especially for the lights. So we don't really need blu-ray for that kind of images (imo).

About the graduation of the last member (Maccochan), it wasn't the first one. At the beginning PASSPO☆  was composed of 10 girls, and Musshu (Kaho Sakuma) left the group (30/12/2011). Officially it was due to health problems. They announced her graduation less than one month before only!

Since she graduated, fans were asking questions about the futur of the group. And they decided to let the fans choose between 7 new girls. Or it was what we were thinking. The thing is that they put the 9 former members of PASSPO + the new girls in a survey, and the 10 girls with the most votes were supposed to become the new line up.
Finally, because of fans reactions, they just quit this idea and the line up stayed with only the 9 former members.
And recently, with the new graduation, the group will just stay like that.
Also, with the 7 other girls, they finally created a new group (Palet).


About how works the graduations, there's absolutely no rules with that. It depends on lots of things and how the group were thought at the beginning.
For PASSPO☆ , since they all are in the group since the very beginning, the graduation can't be decide on the criteria of "how much time they're in the group".
It's just a decision they can take when they want to leave (of course they also have a contract they have to respect).
Obviously, the age is a real criteria : at a moment, they want to have a strong relationship which is normal thing. 
And in some groups, girls know that they will be forced to quit when they reach 20 or 22 years old (marketing plan).

In PASSPO's case, to be honest, we're closer to the end of the group than the beginning. The group will probably end with a disband rather than a new line-up.
However, since they are doing more and more things (writing songs, playing instruments for example), we can hope that we still have few years with them :).
We'll have more informations on the lifetime of the group with the success of the next album.

Post by: bluewind78 on February 18, 2015, 01:38:01 PM
Just though I'd offer my 2 cts to the discussion here after lurking for so long. You can actually see that they are pushing the girls to explore other aspects of the entertainment industry in the hopes that all that could be a prelude to remaking the image and ultimately the core of what PASSPO is and the direction and future of the group. I believe this is obvious with the push into a band-format cos they started out as a girl rock unit...singing and dancing that kinda stuff, to actually being a band with members having the capability of playing actual instruments. You can also see the Muriyari Passpo clips showing the girls doing things they are not used to, also involving themselves in varieties. Hopefully each crew member can find a niche within the industry if not within the group, eventually doing something they are really good at. I hope this experiment could ultimately transform PASSPO into something much more than a girl's band/rock unit..cos from what I see, the diversity of each member's talent, if tapped to full potential, can propel the group collectively to greater heights, provided they are harnessed PROPERLY.

eg (from what I know thus far). Mio is incredibly talented artistically, she already designs the group's costumes/outfits and drew manga cos thats her interest.

Sako (my girlfriend) seems to have a knack for MC-ing, she's the reliable and hardworking (sane) one with a desire to be a journalist. More often the tsukkomi character in PASSPO. Also she's multi-capable...plays the guitar (main guitarist) and also one of the stronger dancers within the group. Though she's not the type to stand out in interviews/variety shows, you can always see her put in 100% the moment they start dancing. She has that quiet charm that's endearing to the members and fans like me. (I know, I'm biased, just bear with me)

Annya is a hell of a dancer! She seem to excel everything put to her in this field. That clip of her trying out belly dancing is proof dance is in her genes. Engaging personality

Morishi...man, the thing that strikes me first is her smile...it ALWAYS gets to me! I could be down in the doldrums after a tough day but the moment I saw any clips featuring this gal her smile just makes me cheerful again and lifts my spirits...also...she's got a powerful voice and totally deserving of being Passpo's lead vocalist. Derpy and bubbly gal, oh, energetic and athletic too.

Aipon...ahh, the CAPTAIN. Two words: WOMANLY CHARMS.  :ondick:  (though that being said, I think she's a heck of a leader though she may not act like the type)

I was actually quite surprised by the announcement of a new studio album. A lot of times a best of-album means an easy way to terminate a record deal (at least in the Western music world) so my estimate was one final nationwide tour and then call it quits. Fortunately this turns out not to be the case.

About the new album, Shiori said something about the group(-management) reconsidering/finetuning the musical concept. She described the current direction as 'American Girl Rock' but in my opinion only about 1/3 of their songs belong to this category, the rest being pop, jpop, punkpop, japanese punkrock, partyrock, samba etc...so yeah, I'm very curious how the new album will be.

Nice to meet you all, by the way!

Post by: Akokyuu on February 18, 2015, 02:51:47 PM
Ahah, I'm rather ok with all that you said.
However for Sakotee, she's not really a great dancer, she's goo because she's a hard worker. Yesterday I watched a show were she was learning belly dance with Naomin and Annya. It wasn't fabulous. While Annya is a real genius and can do everything easily, Sakotee had to work a lot to have a good result.
I'm pretty sure that she'll stop music or any artistic thing after PASSPO, not because she don't want it, but it asks her too much work. 

Morishi seems to have the same faculties as Annya (even if Annya is THE dancer of the group) , and she's better than every other member physically. She's a fantastic singer but I don't consider her as the lead vocalist. She's sharing that with Aipon (and more, Aipon still have the lead, and Mori second imo).

Oh and for Aipon... I didn't really understood what you wanted to say about her as a leader, sorry.
Personally, I think she's perfect in this role. She was the best girl at the beginning (singer, dancer) and she evolved to still be at her place.
Also, she's really a good person because she's not really okay with all the bikinis, gravure thing etc. But as a perfect professional girl, she done everything she had to do for her career (and for PASSPO). She don't really like to be considered because she's really nice. She's the person who deserve the most to be here.
Now, she's a little less present than before : some of the girls are really more confident with the microphone and can also lead the others when Aipon isn't here (for the showcase stream for example).

I wasn't suprised at all with the new album. They spend so much time learning instruments, it was a normal thing to, at least, do one album where they can play several songs. Same for the writing. Oh and yes, when they are talking about a kind of music, this is just a kind of bullshit. They are doing too much differents things to put a name on their style. Oh and with the belly dance learning, maybe we'll have the right to another music like Kimi Iro no Samba? (or maybe it's just to have a new choregraphy for that song).

Oh and for this album, I bet this will not be the last :).

Welcome :)

No graduation is just the term used when someone leaves an idol group on good terms (as opposed to being fired) - it's actually Sakura Gaukuin that is different because in that group graduation literally means they graduate from the group because of their age.

In a few years PASSPO probably won't exist anymore, being a pop-idol is something for young girls, they do it until they either get their dream job like say become an actress or they just go on with their lives getting a normal job, getting married and such.

And since you mention Sakura Gaukin I assume you're the one that pm'ed me on reddit asking for a Passpo site ;)

Also I made a crude writeup on PASSPO on the kawaiimetal reddit -> http://www.reddit.com/r/KawaiiMetal/comments/2w6z14/introduction_to_passpo/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/KawaiiMetal/comments/2w6z14/introduction_to_passpo/)

Yeah that was me. :) I also found another one (not sure if it's ok to mention it). So the two of them will probably satisfy my Passpo discussion needs.

Relieved that they're not being kicked out of the band because of their age. We might get them for at least a few years. I just love their sound.

Well let's hope they leave the songwriting/recording to the professionals...I'd rather hear a few seasoned middle-aged metal musicians rip it up like they do on Mask, Fake, Wing, I and Next Flight. :rock:

That being said, the transition of pure idols into idols playing instruments live during concerts is imo the coolest thing ever done in the business so full credits to the girls for that!

Basically, they are just talking about what we are talking here. Once I posted few interesting links here, and they quoted my post asking to the member to come here if they wanted to thanks me (even if in fact, I also have an account there).
The interesting this is that, here, we can have several other groups so, it still better anyway :)

Well let's hope they leave the songwriting/recording to the professionals...I'd rather hear a few seasoned middle-aged metal musicians rip it up like they do on Mask, Fake, Wing, I and Next Flight. :rock:
They are professional you know? :D
And they already wrote a few songs. I really enjoy to know that they are working on their music, even if the quality should be impacted a little.

That being said, the transition of pure idols into idols playing instruments live during concerts is imo the coolest thing ever done in the business so full credits to the girls for that!   
It's something people would kill me for that : Scandal is typically this kind of group. They wasn't really playing instruments at the beginning. And then they learned. (But it was something they had to do contrary to PASSPO that didn't had any need for that)

Wow, so much posts in such short time :shocked

Anyway I add my tow cents:
Regarding the comment on Aipon
quote: "I think she's a heck of a leader though she may not act like the type"
I know what you mean. I share the same feelings. She always comes out as the "My Pace" person, not being serious (her funny grimaces every time :lol:). But when you watch more closely, she is the spokesperson of the group and well respected by everyone. Perfect captain!

Morishi is the lead singer in my eyes, too. Aipon of course has the same or even slightly more amount of lines, but this is due to her being the captain and the management (rightfully) want to put the focus on her for standing out with her looks. At least this is my opinion. Morishi on the other hand gets leads in basically all songs, and gets all the difficult parts (like the cries in WING). Her vocal range is much wider in her major songs (Dear my friend) than songs with Aipon (Shang Shang Chandelier).

Regarding their music style and Band Passpo I see it not that much of a problem, if they play more songs themselve. Passpo always switched between simple songs and skillful ones. And what they do instrumentally with Perfect Sky, Break Out, or Shiny Road let's me look to their musical future very optimistic. I hope they will do a One Man Live as Band Passpo some time.

I could write more, but I leave it with that ;)

Hi and welcome Clem84!
Glad to see new fans :).

Hum indeed they don't have blu-ray, but even on DVD, the quality you can have is really poor. They are recording their flights without thinking of lots of details, so the quality isn't really great. Especially for the lights. So we don't really need blu-ray for that kind of images (imo).

Well they have 1 bluray but sadly it's not really about the music. :)

You know, I saw bits and pieces of three of their shows. Wing FES live is nothing special IMO. "Next Flight FES live" and the other one "Shibuya Kokaido"(?), were much better visually. Having a Bluray of those would have been great. Oh well...

She's a fantastic singer but I don't consider her as the lead vocalist. She's sharing that with Aipon (and more, Aipon still have the lead, and Mori second imo).
I'm pretty sure that officially she is the lead vocalist.

The people writing and contributing songs for PASSPO aren't just any "seasoned middle-aged metal musicians". The former bassist founded one of Japan's respected thrash metal bands and two of the current members are formerly of Sex Machineguns.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_%28band%29 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_%28band%29)

I figure if they really tried, the members could write their own songs but, watching the whole TOKYO GIRLS STYLE "artist declaration" thing develop, the creative process is really hard. Even a lot of these so-called respected artists have a team of people composing/arranging and writing lyrics for them. Three of the girls from Dorothy Little Happy "self-produced" their side project and there was some criticism that it was derivative of some other groups.

Sakoti, Anya, and Mio seem to be really good at their instruments. Aipon seems to have gotten better too. The problem with them playing instruments is that it takes longer to set up than if they were just to sing and dance to prerecorded music. Maybe that wouldn't be so bad since they seem to be performing EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE recently.

Sakoti's also good at dancing because she works hard. As she always says "I will earnestly try my best today" (Kyou mo majime ni ganbarimasu) if I'm remembering it correctly. Anya on the other hand seems very natural with her dancing.

Akane and Morishi are very similar (not just because they have short hair) because they have those voices that feel like they could knock down a brick wall. But, that's just my opinion.

I heard about DLH's attempts which I find a great decision. Exploring their own talents but still keeping DLH alive. Similar I could imagine with PASSPO. But what about TGS? Haven't heard stories by them.

I don't really see time issues with the band format, at least not for One Man's. Festivals could be a different matter. But I doubt that they will make extensive touring as Band anyway. Even now the Live Band is just performing at special lives in Tokyo. They don't have the money (and success) for the extra costs (transports of instruments, a road crew,...)

And agreed: Akane is a great vocalist! Rumira too.

I should remember the members of predia but they went and did their profile page like palet's which is pretty useless. Hopefully, they don't mess up PASSPO's page like that. What is the point of listing the members' info where it's not next to their picture?

Off topic: TOKYO GIRLS' STYLE made a declaration that they would stop performing at idol events and doing their cute songs and try to be "serious artists" which sounds like it will fail since the bulk of their fans are used to the idol system and I don't think they're popular enough to make it as an artist. Maybe if they managed to sell out Tokyo Dome or even the Budokan, maybe they would have a chance? I don't like the way that it makes it seem that idols are lower than artists. The way I look at it is that artists have the illusion of being more free since they're in charge of the music but at the same time, they have to make music that appeals to a wider range of people since they can't/shouldn't be doing things like making their fans buy multiple CDs for handshakes and chekis. Anyway, we'll see how their new single does (which Miyu wrote the lyrics too).

Since PASSPO already has Hacchake-tai, maybe they can do some other sub-groups as well? Sakoti, Anya, Mio, Aipon, and Morishi as a 5-piece rock band?
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: wattstax on February 20, 2015, 11:35:32 AM
Has Predia changed their site? Last time I looked they had pretty good profiles. Pictures, Names, Likings, etc. Must check it later.

Thanks for the TGS summary. I agree in most parts. But I guess the girls assume a difference in being idols or being a Girl Group. The latter refrains from direct fan interaction. But in my opinion this doesn't make them better in any way. Probably has a lot to do with the perception of the general public. They regard idols as less (although they work much more than Girl Groups imo). And even idols can write their own songs. PASSPO did it and much other groups.

I like your Rockband ;) The rest can keep up Hacchake Tai:P
Morishi should become a solo artist / Band lead vocalist in her after-idol-live!

No disrespect intended. Yokoyamasan (a big loss), Akutsusan, Yahirosan and co. are great musicians.

As much as I like Shiori, and she has improved a lot lately, but imo Akane is in a different league, together with Kaori of KRGS/Chewing High.
Shiori comes right behind them with Chisato (KRGS), Su-metal and Rumina on my favorites-list.


Off topic: TOKYO GIRLS' STYLE made a declaration ...

Sakoti, Anya, Mio, Aipon, and Morishi as a 5-piece rock band?


This 'artist declaration' sounds rather pretentious to me. I'm in favour of an 'Idol declaration', like Gacharic Spin's Gachadan!

Yeah, that would be the way to go. Play small gigs and build up a live reputation. I guess Mio will be on your side.

Now, THAT is a lineup I'd approve!!  :thumbup :thumbup.

I remember in a Free-Flight episode with Sako, Annya and Miomio (was it last year?), they kinda bragged that with just the three of them, they wouldn't even need other members to function (as a rock band)  :love:

Anyway, this trio is my absolute favourite because the three have such tight friendship.

Add to the mix, Morishi..and she would shout the house down with her powerful vocals and Aipon would add depth to the band behind the keyboard.
Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on February 21, 2015, 02:25:03 PM
I figured I would add Aipon since she was pretty impressive on they keyboards at the New Year's Day concert and she could also provide some good vocals so Morishi wouldn't have to do everything. Based on what little I know about PASSPO band, Naomi, Yukkii, Nachu, and Makocchan didn't really contribute much but they had to do something for "Perfect Sky".

Maybe if Yukkii became a percussionist with bongos and chimes and whatnot, she could make it a 6-piece? I don't underestimate the value of a good "manipulator" but, you need to be contributing something aside from a few scratches and accents to make it worthwhile to set up all that equipment in my opinion. I can't stand when the DJ of a hip-hop group (or any genre) just jumps up and down and claps or throws cakes into the crowd! Do some actual mixing or something live!

Off topic: I only got to appreciate TGS recently and for them to do this kind of thing definitely seem pretentious given their position. Sell out Tokyo Dome and just naturally stop appearing at smaller idol events! Regardless of whatever declarations they want to make, they still look like idols! E-girls and Perfume seem to have graduated to being "artists" because they sell out big arenas, don't really look like idols, and are really good at what they do. Idols are defined by how accessible they are. You can meet them at a release event and shake their hand and talk to them. Artists are more far away and "mysterious". They won't follow you back or reply to you on Twitter (if they even have one) or do a handshake event.

Off topic: as little as I know about predia, Akane is probably my #1 followed by Rumina and then Maimai.

A lot of girl groups try to avoid the "idol" tag by saying they are a "dance/vocal unit" or whatever. It's silly. Sell CDs and tickets and worry about it later!

Well, Naomi plays rhythm guitar, so she adds a much needed layer to their sound. It became apparent during Break Out! for me, which sounded much heavier regarding the sound of guitars than it already does on record. (I mean this in a positive way) I agree with the others though. Nachu got the tambourine as they probably needed some instrument for her. I don't dive into her musical qualities here XD Yukki's job I never understood, possibly the same as with Nachu. And Makochan playing a second keyboard was unnecessary as well. That is why I would have prefered (and still prefer) the Band PASSPO putting Morishi, Nachu and Yukki at front, leave lead vocals to Morishi who gets support from Nachu and Yukki. The other members just focusing on their instruments, disregarding their vocal lines on record. THAN it would be a real Band.

I basically share your thoughts. It is why I have a problem with Babyraids never doing proper events, although still calling themselves idols. Does TGS still do idol behaviour then? Like release events and Twitter? I seriously don't know. And I don't regard this as off topic, as imo PASSPO seems to want to go the same direction, already limiting their cheki events for quite some time. I can only see Hachake Tai keeping up the idol appearance.

They generally are dancing to pre-recorded music. The live band is only around for special (and bigger) concerts. Every other idol group I know of is doing it this way. (like Babyraids, Party Rockets)

Pretty much all idols groups play with pre-recorded music. It's only at larger events they use a backing band - there are several reasons, first it costs money to hire musicians and they need to practice to get it right and finally most of the time there wouldn't even be room for a band on the stage.

They're too cool to play shit like 'Shiny Road'.

Title: Re: (Group) Passpo☆
Post by: mixedmedia on February 22, 2015, 03:53:00 AM
Pre-recorded music = less setup time which means when they're performing with several different groups (which seems to be the bulk of their non-touring shows) the promoter can have more groups perform. Even lyrical school which has a legit DJ takes about 5-10 minutes extra to set up properly.

Off topic: On the topic of useless onstage DJs I was thinking of the guy from Funky Monkey Babys. Every time I would see his smug face while he would be standing behind the turntables just dancing made me dislike them to the point where I decided that I didn't like them, more so since they were so popular (and sounded like a lot of other happy hip-hop groups in Japan). Disclaimer: I would usually change the channel or fast forward any time I would see FMBs so I can't say whether their music was any "good" compared to "real hip-hop" but a lot of people liked them. I'm not saying they should be mixing or whatever the entire time but, if they only touch their equipment once or twice during a song, why do they need all that stuff to be there? Dance along with the others or help with the chorus and get the crowd excited!

At least DJ Hikaru provides some vocals too?

TGS is selling their new single and best of album with 4 different types with different contents for each one. The cheapest version of the single is only sold at events so...I don't really care enough about TGS or even Babyraids to go to a release event and buy a CD for a handshake or a cheki so I can't say for sure. I do feel that those two groups (and Cheeky Parade to an extent) are tying to move too fast.

On topic: new Muripasu with Sakoti and Morishi. Morishi looks like a monkey with her furry coat! Big improvement over Nachu and Yukkii wandering around Ikebukuro.

That's how rhythym guitarists look like. With most bassists it is the same, if they just care about keeping up the song structure ;)

Quote

That is what I mean, right. It won't work with every song of their repertoire, but they could rearrange some, for example Starting Over, which consists basically of group vocals. But the best option would be just writing new songs, that fits the three.
I only want this for a BAND version, of course.

Quote

I find Shiny Road okay, nothing more but nothing less either. They have worse songs.
To give a serious answer: Those musician are probably paid by effort. So learning a bunch of songs, which would occupy a lot of time, will be expensive. And I can imagine lot of fans want the 'traditional' performance without a band. Not sure here though. It is a mistake to compare idol groups with 'regular' groups. PASSPO also has no rich label behind them.

Quote

Well, yes. But sparsely. Most time she just nods her head to the music and encourages the audience a few times for participation. You know, 'Clap your hands' and stuff.

Great video. Right when the action should start, both guns fail. And Annya seems to have a cruel cleverness, letting Mio repair her gun, then shooting Mio with hers :lol:
Mio is surprisingly tired fast. Expected more from an idol ;)
Oh and I need to buy a skateboard to attract their attention. But I shouldn't expect them running to help me if I fall. The reaction was hilarious XD

Yukki is a fan of Spanish football. She is seen quite often in trikots, especially during the World Cup. For me the fact is more important that she is a woman who likes football. Rare thing that needs to be acknowledged! I already gave up hope, that outside Europe you can find fans of teams despite Barcelona, Madrid and Manchester.

My life would be complete if i could see her wearing the jersey of the best club in the world, the one and only AC Milan !  :theking

Hi, I just joined this forum mostly because this place seemed to have a somewhat active discussion on PASSPO☆. I did join http://www.passpofan.com (http://www.passpofan.com) a few hours ago, but that place seems to not be very active. So thus I ended up here somehow . . .

Since this is a PASSPO☆ thread, here's a trailer for their upcoming DVD release that they posted earlier in case you haven't seen it yet.

Guess they couldn't fit over 6 hours onto 2 DVDs. Granted I still wonder why a blu-ray version is not available.

I wonder why they not release 3 DVDs then or plan it better.  The duration was pretty easy to predict.
BluRay probably has money issues.

Seriously. 3 DVDs with all kinds of random bonus footage or just spread it out. 2+ hours per each DVD! Simple!

Offtopic: I'm regretting not getting Bluray versions of stuff I got on DVD because there is bonus footage only on the Bluray version and it wasn't that much more expensive. Bluray drives got cheaper too but stupid Macs can't play them though.

Personally I prefer blu-rays because 1. they're HD 2. DVDs look anywhere from significantly to somewhat worse on the TVs in my home. 3. Japanese Blu-rays are usually region free as opposed to Japanese DVDs which are usually region locked. I primarily use my North American/US model PS3 for viewing Blu-rays.

That is definitely 100% wrong, I think you are missing something.

1. The wast majority of both music DVD's and Blue-Rays are region free.

2. If we are talking movies I think the reason you think the Blue-Rays are region free is because they are the same region as North America whereas DVD's are the same region as Europe.

Of all the DVDs I have from Japan, only one is all region and the rest are coded for Region 2, while all blu-rays I have are all region.These are DVDs from limited edition albums and concert Blu-rays.

Also on the topic of PASSPO☆, they really seem to be churning these out a lot lately . . .

I have about 20 Music DVD's and only one is locked (it's a set of 2 and the other disk in that set isn't locked).

Well since we're talking about the PASSPO☆ DVD, I looked at the product page on CD Japan and like most of the DVDs I have from Japan, it says the DVD is Region 2. Which is locked for me since I'm in the US.

Those pages are wrong, both CD-Japan and amazon.co.jp often write that as a precation, the disc's aren't actually region locked.

Then explain to me why so many of the DVDs I've gotten from those sites are locked and won't play for me.
