^that site is great. They put up the Tonooka Birthday celebration (older Idoling episode), which was kinda strange. She got like a life time supply of sesame seeds?!
The Tonooka calender is great. I received it and came up with an ingenious way of hanging it to my wall without having to tear of the pages. I know it doesn't really matter, I might as well use them as posters, but for now they're still attached. I'll post pics when I feel like it haha.
Watching the TonoTono Smile DVD at the moment. To be honest, I'm a little disappointed by it. [Spoilers ahead.. maybe].
First of all, it's very short (40 minutes plus a small bonus video). Secondly, the content isn't all that interesting. The first part is her relaxing and it has some shameless boob shots. Seriously, they put her boobs in focus like three times in a row. Totally unnecessary.. could have been more classy. The second part consists of her petting a hyperactive poodle. Not only does the dog look ridiculous, it's clear that the dog doesn't want to be there. The next part is Erica as a doll, with a wig on in front some horrid wallpaper doing some poses.
I was hoping for more like a H!P style Alo Hello video or like Acchan's dvd. I want to see what's she's like when she's not on Idoling and to hear her express her opinions on things etc. The part where she made a heart shape cake was kinda cute, but still not that interesting. Near the end is the 'I want to be a princess' part, but it's basically her in what looks like a wedding dress. I've seen scenes like that before so that must be some sort of fetish as well
Next, "I want to be a celebrity", which means sitting in a pool wearing a gold bikini. This part lasts much longer than the previous parts. Lastly, we see her in the orange bikini featured on the dvd cover. Couple of minutes of her getting a massage.
Overall, probably not worth the money. HOWEVER, it's Erica so it's still a must have
Secondly, the box fold out and looks pretty cool. Btw, I didn't buy it (yet?), the video is available on the site in Ayabie's signature
The new Idoling!!! single:アイドリング!!! 「baby blue」
Cute and soothing song, I like it. I've come to love the album as well.. just took a couple of listens
