Release on Aipon's birthday! Good thing they do a follow up to their album rather quick.

Yes! I hope we can look forward to another single(s)/album series. No double best of album yet, Crown has still faith in them it seems.

So let's see if anything changes to break the downward sales spiral. To start they once more invented a new genre; 'Comic book pop'...

[ps. I'm curious if they indeed gonna face some sort of Kaijuu in the upcoming MV. In that case I cross my fingers they hook up with Toho Studios (just like the item in the TV program 'Japan in Motion' where Giant Mio rampages Tokyo and they blow up some stuff with practical effects), and not the people who did the 'Step&Go' CGI.]

[ps2. I'm impressed by Mio's progress on bass. This clip of her playing bass and singing at the same time is great. This one of thrash metal Mio is fun too. And here is bad woman Mio:

Yes. I was really happy when I heard about the new single. Hopefully we get two more after this one and an album eventually. I think very highly of Cinema trip and I think the song writers and the girls still have a lot to contribute to the idol scene.

Uhh. Yes. A high budget MV with Mio as Godzilla would categorically rock.  :lol:

Lately I've been impressed with Mio on bass and Annya on drums. The others do a decent job but I feel those two show the most improvement.

^ So Comic book pop = Himawari x ska x rap. That's okay then.

In times of need always revisit your last succesful single.

New song @20.43

New uniforms.

I thought they were just ok at first but I'm starting to like them.

Hm, I am not convinced. Am I the only one who thinks of Pokemon balls when I see them?
And why do the colours are looking so washed out? Reminds me of the fashion during the 60s.
Morishi getting trousers as the only one, whereas Annya and Yucky get mini-skirts. Hmm...

But luckily I don't care much for uniforms.

Yeah I really liked them, saw both their performances and all PASSPO except yesterday when I felt bad - didn't know they would play as BAND PASSPO today so that was a nice surprise.

Amazing live. Thanks for the link. I should consider to attend TIF some time again.
Hopefully Hacchake Tai will perform more often again.

just got back from my TIF/japan trip few days ago (long summary can be found on my blog lol.

haha dammit. i only watched passpo 1x during this japan trip (lol) so confirmed my priorities has shifted somewhere else.  XD On day 2, i wanted to watch the Passpo hot stage performance, but kinda unlucky as i arrived last minute and for some reason the queue for the Hot stage is damn crazy. i can enter the hot stage just fine on day 3 even though i entered just 1 hour before Nogiz and Grand Finale (and so does my friend who arrived like 5 mins late before nogiz on day 3), so maybe really just back luck there on Day 2 (o maybe its because HKT48 lol). Abandoned the queue and went for sky stage for maneki kecak instead xD

I did watch them on day 3 heat garage performance though. They sing Natzusora Hanabi *yay*, vivi Natsu, Pretty Lie,  Bachelorette, and one more song (i think a new song). The new outfit is kinda weird tho.

This year TIF is not as hot (day 1 and 2) due to the cloudy weather, although day 3 is definitely back to the "summer hell" weather. My skin burned again even though i have used 2 different types of sunblock  :lol: The security is damn tight again this year though. so many dramas in twitter i saw on the day (saw some jap fans RT'ing their videos and pictures including a guy fighting with the BONDs until they're bleeding xD)

Last time I saw the band was before their band tour and I must say, they're making good progress. Naomi even did some nice soloing and her overall sound is way better now. Wanted intro also sounds pretty good. Nice!

If you haven't seen it yet, the TIF performance can be found here:

I think the song is ok. It's fun and upbeat so it works for me. But then, I'm not very picky when it comes to Passpo.  :lol:

The video is very cool though.

This sounds like it should be a pretty good live song.

Oh I like those uniforms!  Cute with the above knee stockings for some members and below for others;  and naughty teasing suspenders for two.  And the colour panels are so nice.  I really really wish there was more video material of Passpo around...  I have most of their DVDs but they have hardly done any blu-ray, and nothing at all for over two years I think.  Get off your butts, Universal Japan!  (Discography here btw, click the tab for DVD/BD).

As wattstax said you wont find anything new there since they changed to Crown Records more than a year ago.

^ and ^^   Thanks guys!  Still, it seems that Crown hasn't released anything much for them yet, or am I wrong?  Nothing on the online stores that I can find.

What happened, did Universal drop them, or did they move on themselves cos they weren't getting much out of Universal?

Isn't it a shame that possible DVD releases are being held back by such a small technicality? I realize all the material prior to Mr. Wednesday belongs to Universal but wouldn't it be possible for them and Crown to reach some kind of deal to split the revenues according to the number of songs? 60% of the songs from this live belong to Universal so they get 60% of the profit? And vice versa for Crown? Something like that. Surely that has to be possible. Maybe the potential profit isn't significant enough to justify all the headaches that would come with a contract like that.

Hopefully one day it'll happen.
