Kikkawa You  (吉川友)

(http://www.imgur.com/files/080530/kikkasure.png)
      

Nickname: Kikka
Birthday: 5/1/1992
Hometown: Ibaraki prefecture
Special skills: Arm-wrestling
Favourite food: Fruits
Disliked food: Anko

Where can you see her?
Milky Way 1st Single & Single V “Anataboshi”
Cutie Circuit 2007 ~MAGICAL CUTIE kansha matsuri~


You auditioned for Morning Musume's 8th generation and made it to the final 4. She didn't win, but joined Hello! Project Eggs as the only 3rd gen Egg. Her first H!P unit has been Milky Way with Kusumi Koharu & Kitahara Sayaka (Egg).



She is also the girl of the week!

(Ack, late again :doh: Writing term papers totally fucked up my sense of time. Let's hope we can get back to schedule next week)

Yay!
I've loved Kikka since the auditions. She was definitely my choice to win the audition and I was pretty upset when she didn't. However, when I heard she was joining the eggs, I knew we would hear more and more of her... and new she's in a new unit that is releasing more than just one single! I'm glad her name is getting out there, because she's definitely got talent and potential to do something spectacular in H!P.

Kikka love.  :heart:

:heart: Just gotta love Kikka.

I loved her in the Oha Star drama. Not only she looked pretty, I found her to be the best actress out of all the actors in the Oha Star dramas.

She was not my choice to win the 8th gen auditions (neither was Mitsui, but ok haha). She looks kinda fun and cute in the above pics, so I guess I'll give her another chance. I'll have to because I think Milky Way is awesome. She needs to improve her dancing though.

I was just listening to the Kirarin Revolution Song Selection 4 tracks, and damn Yuu has the best of the solos of the Milky Way songs. I'm very greatful for her role in the anime now. She really can sing and I hope that she's found in some more groups or something out there.

While I'm sad she didn't get in MoMusu I'm glad that she didn't as well, for she wouldn't have this opportunity to have a solo if she was. I'm glad she was picked to be in the world of Hello!Project.  :wub:

I was bored and did an Anataboshi mix, without Koharu. I can't believe how amazing it sounds without her. XD

Wow thanks for that, I had no idea that there were solos of these songs! :lol: Getting them right now, so I'll have to wait a bit until my curiousity is satisfied... But yeah, from what I've heard before, Kikka has one of the better voices :3

EDIT: Listening to her solos now and wah, she sounds so good! :D :D :D They better make use of her vocals in the future :tama-mad:

Since I found out a while ago that there supposed to be solos I was kinda obsessing about it to myself waiting for the cd to come out. And they lived up to my expectations. Kikka~~

It will truly be a shame if she isn't featured in something else.

I started liking her during the 8th gen Audition! Kikka und Micchi where my favourites... I hoped that Tsunku may add more then one girl but yeah... I´m happy she even becamea H!P member! She´s my favourite H!G egg now and I love her voice! She´s also a great actor (I love her voice acting... it´s much better than koha´s -> I like Koha but she she doesn´t have voice acting talent :P)

Kikka was my favorite in the 8:th gen auditions.
Don't get why she didnt join momusu then. She's soooo  f****ing CUTE!
And sings so much better than koharu.

I'm happy for all exposure that she gets, she's totally my fav in Milky way.

I'm really liking Kikka more and more!! She's so delightfully random, but not in an over-the-top way. She's all laid back and cool, but a wee bit quirky at the same time. Really lovely! Also, it feels like she's smiling all the time now, which is great.  :twothumbs

This is Kikka going like "eh?... EH?... It's over?" when Kanon has beat the game.

My Kikka story: seriously no idea about her until she appeared in milky way... obviously no idea that tsunku preferred to choose Aika instead of her for MM. Oh is a shame that after milky way she practically disappeared... she have so much talent don't waste it  :tama-mad:

My favorite thing about Kikka:
the aura that she emits, is just that she always looks so bright, calm and positive, maybe because of the eyes (pretty eyes) but is more like an everything

A memorable performance:

Losing the audition worked out pretty nicely for her in the end, huh?  :P

Post by: Slack on December 24, 2010, 10:55:25 AM
<Stryfe> makes more sense for kikka to solo debut than go to mm anyway
<Stryfe> tsunku can just go "training finished!"
<Stryfe> "had a plan all along"
<Stryfe> "this is why I didn't put her into mm"
<shirenu> it would explain why kikka hasn't left to try her luck at another agency, if she was promised that ONE DAY she'd either debut as solo or join a main group

<Slack> worked for miki
<Slack> but then again BAM NOW YOU'RE IN MM ANYWAY LULZ
<Stryfe> lol damn
<Stryfe> good point

I was shocked when I heard this.  Maybe they'll FINALLY do something with her!  It's been far too long!  The only thing I see that might keep her out of MM is Aika.  I'm sure they'd get along, but Kikka auditioned for 8th gen and despite being teh favorite to win, I think, it went to Aika.  not sure if that might play a part in it.

S/mileage staff twitter account says she's scheduled to perform at 6:15, about 15 mins before the start of the concert proper. (Which is currently about 30 mins from now.)

Kinda sad that this news will get caught in the shuffle of the craziness of the 9th gen.
They really stole her thunder.

<Stryfe> that's prolly why they put her on so early
<Stryfe> so she could have... literally... her fifteen minutes of fame :V

Oh well, hope she'll use this as motivation to stand out more!

WTF is a support project??? all i know is that they created it out of nowhere just for Kikka <3 and that it sounds like "fans please support her so she can go solo and have an indie release"... or maybe she will join momusu a bit later just like fujimoto 8D

Post by: Slack on January 02, 2011, 08:14:26 PM
I may not have said it here, but I kind of see Kikka as the Mikitty to Mano-chan's Ayaya.
Kikka didn't win the audition, went through training, went solo. Sound familiar?
I'm NOT saying they should stick her in Momusu, but that parallel kinda stuck with me.

Anyway, that got me thinking about what a unit with the two of them (a la GAM) would be called.
I didn't think of a good name... until now.

Quote
<Slack> so I was reading that post in the fukuchan thread about her having the same initials as mikitty
<Slack> and that got me thinking
<Slack> about my comments earlier "isn't kikka the mikitty to manochan's ayaya?"
<Slack> and then I realized
<Slack> Mano Erina = ME
<Slack> & YUU
<Slack> OHSHIT
<shirenu> ....
<Slack> (I had only a few hours of sleep)
* shirenu walks away slowly
<Slack> NO, DON'T DO THIS TO ME
<Slack> T_T

C'mon guys! I can't be the only one who thinks "ME & YOU" would be awesome!
Title: Re: The Kikkawa Yuu Thread (吉川友)
Post by: Serafis_CZ on January 03, 2011, 12:44:28 AM

Was chatting about the new support site and how to register.
Here's the quick guide from H!O's Kikkawa Yuu thread.

Quote
(http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/8116/kikkaguide2.png)
Send in a mail to this address with the content "このまま送信ください。"

Then they will send you an email in response with the link to the registration page.
(http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/8820/kikkaguide1.png)

Just choose 東京 for location.
Your login name will be your email address.

Then hit the submit button a couple times.
Make sure not to hit the "戻る" button, which is "go back".

Once you got that, you're done!
Now you can login at the main page, which I have labeled for you below:
(http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/8371/kikkasite.png)

Stick in your email and password at the login page:
(http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/9080/kikkalogin.png)

Then you should be all set!
You get an extra link for "Avatar", but that's not available yet.
(http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/7340/kikkaloggedin.png)

Really, the only point to this whole exercise is to let UFA know how many fans Kikka has.
No idea if there will be more goodies later, aside from the avatar thing.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that registering for her site delivers daily messages from her to your email.

If you listened to the concert recording, It sounds like she's straining a bit to hit all the right pitches.
Here's my shot at translating it.

The 3rd day's over!!!
Many thanks for today(´ω`)☆

Since the beginning of 2011, I have a sore throat even though I couldn't hit all the right notes... while thinking about the meaning of the lyrics, I've been singing to deliver these feelings to all the fans★☆ [Probably has been straining her voice.]

I have a request for the interlude to "Sayonara Namida". [Rough translation I'm not sure of for this line.]
Since the dance is easy to remember, I'd be really happy if everyone tried copying it!!!
Please try it☆★

Since they heard about my sore throat, Morning Musume.'s Takahashi-san gave me some good throat medicine, Michishige-san lent me her inhaler, and Mano-chan gave me some black tea that's good for the throat!!
Thank you, everyone♪ I respect you all for being so kind and cute!!
Drinking this, I'll be back to normal in no time(´・ω・`)

I'll be trying my best again tomorrow♪
Please come and visit☆

This has been Kikka(´ω`)!!





Also, here's the previous day's post.

2日目おわりました☆☆

2回とも「さよなら涙」を歌わせてもらいました☆
ファンの皆さんの声援が、曲中に入ってたりして、とってもうれしかったです!!
この曲は、女の子の悲しい恋愛の曲なんですけど、歌詞をよく読んでいただけると、もっとこの曲のよさが出てくると思います
(´ω`)

明日も2回公演です!
先輩のいい表現の仕方をみて勉強していきます♪
頑張るぞォォォォォ━━━━!!
明日もぜひ見に来てください☆

きっかでした(´ω`)!!

And my rough translation:

The 2nd day's over☆☆

I sang "Sayonara Namida" twice☆
It made me really happy to hear all the fans' cheering during the song!!
Even though this song is about a girl's sorrowful love, I think if you listen carefully to the lyrics this song will make you feel good
(´ω`)

Tomorrow there's two more shows!
I'll be studying all my seniors' ways of performing♪
I'll do my beeeeeest━━━━!!
Definitely come and see us tomorrow too☆

今日会場に来てくださったみなさん、ごめんなさい。
最高のパフォーマンスを見せなければならなかったんですけど、歌詞を間違えてしまいました。
温かい声援をくれたファンのみなさんの気持ちがとっても嬉しくて、少し泣いてしまいました…。

これからもっと乗り越えなければいけない壁があるとおもいます。
そのために、泣き虫なきっかは卒業し、強くなりたいです。
みなさんの声援がきっかの、大きな力になります。
みなさんこんなきっかですけど、また明日から応援お願いします。
明日こそは、最高のパフォーマンス見せます!

以上きっかでした!!

The 4th day's over!!!

To everyone who came to today's concert, I'm very sorry.
I got my lyrics wrong and so wasn't able to show you my best performance.
All the fans' warm encouragement made me so glad that I cried a little bit...
Really, thank you very much.
From here on, there will be even bigger obstacles to overcome.
For that reason, I want to become stronger and graduate from being crybaby Kikka.
Everyone's encouragement has become my great source of strength.
Even though I'm still like I am now, from tomorrow on, everyone please continue to cheer for me.
Tomorrow I'll definitely show you my best performance!

お忙しい中、観にきてくれたみなさま、本当にありがとうございます♪

毎回オープニングアクト出させてもらってって、みなさんの前で一人で歌える事の楽しさを知りました♪

まだまだ歌もダンスも課題が多いですが、頑張ります。応援お願いします。
『さよなら涙』のラストで「涙が止まらない」って歌詞があるんですけど、顔がモニターに映るので、どんな表情で歌えばいいのかいつも考えてます。
ハローの先輩のライブを見て勉強していきます!!
最近のきっか、愛犬のチョコをつっついたりして遊んでます★

The 5th day's over!!!

It's over!!

Thank you so much to everyone who came despite being busy♪

Since I've gotten to be the opening act every day, I've been able to experience the joy of singing by myself in front of everyone♪

I'll do my best to overcome my many remaining issues in singing and dancing. Please cheer me on.
"Sayonara Namida"'s last line is "my tears won't stop", but when I see my face in the monitor, I still think about what kind of expression I should be singing with.
I'll continue to study my Hello! Project seniors' performances!!

Lately I've been nudging and playing with my pet dog Choco★
That's the most soothing!

Tomorrow I'll continue to try my best(´ω`)

My understanding was that her solo start isn't fully under Hello! Project.
Who knows, maybe she'll be moved to TNX or something. (I kinda hope not)

Anyway, it's been about a week since I last translated some of her support site emails, so there's a bunch of them:
Quote
The 6th day's over!!!

It's over. heart [she actually says "heart" here]
Everyone who came out to see me
thank you very much for your support♪

This time,
when I saw all the fans' faces, I really calmed down while I sang (^o^)
As I thought, seeing all the fans calms me down (blush)
Up to now when I got nervous, it was because I didn't take the time to look carefully. (///ω///)
From tomorrow on, I'll work on being more aware of the upper levels too!!

Even though I can't talk in concrete terms about what 2011 holds for Kikkawa Yuu, when I heard about it I was surprised!!
I honestly feel that it would be bad not to try my best from now on.
Even though it's going to be a lot tougher from here on out, I'll do my best 'till I drop.
Until I drop, everyone please support me (lol)

This has been Kikkawa Yuu (´・ω・`)!!
I'll do my best tomorrow too♪

(http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/6902/19444444954d270995ebded.jpg)




It's Kikka.

It's Kikka.
Today I'll do my best to send a lot of mail updates! [oh, great.]
Please wait for them.

The noon show is soon.
Kikka is now on standby.
Here I go!

I think you'll see a different Kikka from before during the evening show!

Look forward to it☆

The 7th day's over!!!

Finished!!!!
The second time has safely concluded!
It was the first time I performed "Candy PoP"!
It's a reealy upbeat song so
It's a song that gets me excited during a concert★
To all the fans who got excited with me, thank you very much♪
Before I went out, I was really nervous, but thanks to everyone's encouragement, I was somehow able to relax and sing (´ω`)

Today, did I update a lot?
From here on, I'll try hard to do more updates♪
※Please save this mail so it doesn't get lost※

Please look forward to tomorrow too♪
This has been Ki-Ki-Kikka!

Last day at Nakano, noon show

It's over♪
Thanks again to everyone for today♪

When I first got the song "Sayonara Namida", I thought it would be too hard for me, but after performing it on stage a few times, my skill at singing caught up to it.
During the song, there's a part that makes all the fans chant and dance.
From now on, I want to work with the fans to make this song special.
I'd like to make "Sayonara Namida" the best♪

I'm counting on everyone

Nakano Sun Plaza's finished!

On the second day of this year, we started the Hello! Project Concerts @ Nakano Sun Plaza!
The last show is finished!!!!

In 2011, I got to fill the role of opening act at these concerts.
Thank you very much♪
Every day my heart was pounding with nervousness!
Thank you for looking kindly on me for my first performance♪
This time when I sang various parts I needed to improve, I was glad when I found I could do them.
Though I have a long way to go, armed with everyone's support I'll go all out to do my best!!

Also, an announcement!
I'll be holding an event this January (´ω`)!!!!
It's an event all the fans can participate in.
Everyone, definitely come down to and check it out♪
Another email will be sent with all the details.
Everyone please stay tuned★
Thank you in advance♪

From here is a new start for Kikkawa Yuu
Please give me your support♪
Next up, I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone in Nagoya♪

I've returned home

Good evening everyone!!
When I came home, my doggie Choco was sitting in front of the door waiting for me
(´ω`)
It was super-cute
(´・ω・`)

Just when I went to give it a big hug, it kicked me in the face with all it's strength. How cruel…(゜ロ゜)?

But I wasn't going to lose, so I lovingly tickled Choco!!!

Well then, I'm going to relax with Choco★

This has been Kikka!




This is Kikka!

Good evening everyone!!
First update in 3 days★

Today is a lesson day!!!!
But I still can't say any of the specifics (´・ω・`)!!!

I think I'll be able to announce it soon, so please look forward to it★
And that's how it is★

Seriously, this girl need a Twitter account or blog or something.

There was another mail from the site giving details about the press conference, it's time, location, the rules for the raffle, that kind of thing.  It doesn't really have any relevance to those living outside of Japan, and those living in Japan can probably read it anyway.  Therefore, I'm NOT translating it:

For everyone who came through the snow to see me today, thank you very much.

Wait up for me, Nagoya-----!!!

I'm looking forward to meeting everybody♪

Heeeere's Kikka!!!
Tomorrow is in Kobe!!
I'm looking forward to it♪

It's finally going to be my last performance singing in front of everyone as opening act for the Hello! Project 2011 Winter~Kangei Shinsen Matsuri~ concerts!!
With all my feeling, I've tried my best so far to get better at singing(´ω`)☆
I'll do my best♪

P.S. Kikkawa Yuu "Static Electricity Woman"
It's really gotten bad~!!


Doing my best tomorrow too♪
Now, on to battle in Kobe (^○^)

Byebye (o・・o)/
This has been Kikka!!
Aww, seems like Kikka's been bothered by static electricity.



Quote
Kobe Day 1☆

I've come to Kobe!!
Kikkawa Yuu has arrived.

For the first show,
I sang "Candy PoP" (´・ω・`)
I wonder what I'm singing next. Dear me!*


For the time being
Kikkawa Yuu will do her best♪

The first day of shows in Kobe has finished!!
It was fun~(^o^)
But, there's a lot to think about!
There's stuff I gotta fix (´・ω・`)

I'll solve it bit by bit!


[What Kikka has noticed recently]
I found out that wearing shorts on a midwinter night is just about cold enough to kill you!

Everyone please try walking in shorts in midwinter. (lol)


Tomorrow is the last day in Kobe!!
Filled with spirit, I'll do my best♪
Everyone tomorrow (C'mon down to Kobe)
This has been Kikka♪
Silly girl, of course you're going to be cold in shorts in midwinter!

From what I've heard, her songs are pretty good!
She sings 'em really well! :thumbsup

Today's public press conference has finished!!
I was really nervous.

Well then, for those of you who couldn't come to the press conference, I have an announcement♪

I, Kikkawa Yuu, have been given my first leading part in a movie to be publicly released during Golden Week this May♪

The title is "Kikkake wa YOU!"
And then! It's been decided that I will debut on March 30 with the movie's theme song from Universal Music, titled "Kikkake wa YOU!" the same as the movie!!!

Furthermore, I'm going to be the opening act for "UNIVERSAL DREAM LIVE 2011" on March 19th at Osaka's Universal Studios Japan!

Since there's all these big jobs, I'm continually nervous.

But, with everyone's support and encouragement, I want us all to keep going together.

So, please continue to support Kikkawa Yuu!!!

This has been Kikkawa Yuu!
I'll try my best (^o^)!!

Looks like she's going to be a busy girl!

I'm so far behind on the Kikka email translations...
Does anyone even read them?  They're all basically "I'll be doing my best!" and "Please keep supporting me!".
Should I keep going?

Anyway, Episode 3 of Kikka Channel has been up for a while:

  They're all basically "I'll be doing my best!" and "Please keep supporting me!".

That's why I stopped reading most idol blogs a while ago. It can be useful to get some sneak previews of new costumes or any info... but mostly it's about their fav food and stuff  :nervous

I'm excited about Yuu's single. I'll admit she wasn't my fav at all when she first appeared, but I guess she is one of Tsunku's good discoveries. It's like her potential is coming out and she's pretty interesting and funny.

Post by: J-Triumf on February 27, 2011, 01:11:02 AM
Anyone else find it confusingly hilarious that her name is now officially romanized as "You"? :lol:

Just reading through the Up Front Link blog (http://uflink-en.blogspot.com/search/label/You%20Kikkawa) gives us the following gems:

"The announcer asked You if it was possible for her to show her talent"

"Just after this, a new announcement has been made : You will be the opening act of the Universal Dream Live 2011 on March 19th (Official website)."

"Some minutes after, You made this picture just for this blog"

"ET-KING's members told her to do her best and You wondered if she was going to meet other famous artists."

"There was even a woman in the public who came with the same clothes as You during her press conference, and of course You saw her and thanked her."

"He is the one who will conduct You and give her advices for the recording"

Can't help but think of the Rush Hour movies now...
Rush Hour 2 "Who's you?" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl4FonAMvRY#)Rush Hour 3 - He is Mi and I am Yu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU4lYcN6zEY#)

Maybe after Ai-chan graduates we can finally have the long awaited "You and Ai" duet! XD

I dig those covers. She looks like a serious artist with a pretty classy adult vibe.

Sadly, the PV sorta ruins that vibe  :nervous

The song is ok, but it sorta lacks impact. I hope it does well, of course, but I wonder if this has any sort of mass appeal...

Kikka's home prefecture of Ibaraki has been hit pretty hard by the earthquake, tsunami, and aftershocks.
It's also next to Fukushima prefecture, where the nuclear plants are.
Recently, some spinach crops from Ibaraki were found to be contaminated by radiation.

In any case, Kikka wasn't able to get back home for a while.
Here's what she did:

Quote from: mm-bbs Kikkawa Yuu mail translation (http://blog.mm-bbs.org/kikkawa-yuu/7514)
It’s Kikka.
Kikkawa Yuu | MARCH 19, 2011 | 00:00
By TNB | Translated: MARCH 19, 2011

It has been one week since the earthquake.
Since that day, many people have experienced painful things.
As I watch the state of the stricken areas, my heart aches.

After the quake, Kikka’s hometown in Ibaraki wasn’t in a state I could return to, so I wasn’t able to go home right away.
I stayed in Tokyo with my senior as a solo artist, and good friend, Mano Erina-chan.
The two of us wondered if there was anything we could do to help the victims.

It’s a small thing, but first there’s “Energy conservation.”
If each and everyone one of us puts together our small efforts, if we all conserve energy, we can certainly give power to the stricken areas.

Actually, Kikka was finally able to return to her home in Ibaraki the other day.

To be able to help everyone just a little, and on my own to be able to see smiles on many faces, I’m going to do absolutely everything I can to the fullest.
I want us to all work hard together, encourage each other, and do our best!

Kikka

Mano-chan also mentioned in her blog how she was together with Kikka for a few days.
It's nice that they're sticking together in these tough times.


It's been a while since I've done any Kikka mail translations, but it turns out they're unnecessary now since mm-bbs is doing them.

Just got a Kikka email.
She said she's going to be a regular on "Hiru nan Desu!! (http://Hiru nan Desu!!)" each week on Tuesday.

Also, she said Kikka Channel episode 6 is out:
吉川友/きっかチャンネル 第6回 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPT2oyD-OvA#ws)

This time is the shooting of the PV!
For her first outfit, she says the things to look out for are the playing card symbols on the skirt.
Also, she says "the material is similar to an umbrella. It's got a slippery texture to it".

Then there's a little part at the end with her recording the narration for the single's commercial.

And with that, this single is all finished!
Kikka says she'll do her best for the next one too!

Here's a clip of that "Hiru nan desu!" show with Kikka as a Tuesday regular:
110329 hirunandesu (吉川友) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiXqA_4GwXs#ws)

They go around town dressed as office ladies trying various pastry shops' sweets.
Since it's right around sakura season now, they're going specifically for the sakura sweets.

But it's not all about sweets.
As you'd expect from "office ladies", there's a gossipy bit around 5:00.
Kikka is asked about some gesture guys do that she likes.

Kikka: Me? Well, I'm not really that interested in guys...
Asako: No way, Yuu-chan! That's such a waste!
Kikka: Hehe, I know.
Asako: ...A calculated answer!? Since she's an idol, I guess it's like "Guys are still kinda..."

That part made me smile. :D
Questions like that can be a little tricky for idols, but she played it off being coy.

For the record, her answer was something like
"when a guy who's normally reserved [not sure about this part] suddenly flashes a smile"

For the Love of Rika, this is wotastically, wotagasmically, wotalicious. From "Idols and Hollywood":[/b]....."Cheerfu11y’s plot may seem like your typical post Bring It On cheer leading film (suffice to say there are contests to be won) but what is exciting about Cheerfu11y isn’t the plot but the cast, which reads like any wota’s wet dream.

It stars:

•UFA starlets Kikkawa You, Furukawa Konatsu (Up-Up Girls) and Mori Saki (Up-Up Girls);
•Former Hello Pro eggs Goto Yuki (THE Possible) and Akiyama Yurika (THE Possible);
•Platinum Passport’s Tamai Anna, Sakuma Kaho, Mori Shiori and Anzai Naomi from Passpo☆;
•Niwa Mikiho from Canary Club
•And most interstingly of all fromer Momorio Clover sub-leader Hayami Akari from the stardust agency......."

Yuu is the get you happy in the morning idol, and she is helped at this promo event for her song Hapirapi~Sunrise~ by actor Shinji Yamashita. Yamashita san celebrates kanreki (還暦) this December, which is the special name for the 60th birthday of a Japanese Man. Yuu does a good job focusing on whipping those fans into shape, singing, and carrying on conversation with a very experienced actor. Yuu did it, Yuu!!! Good job!

Thanks for sharing her TIF performances, guys! Surprisingly, I think HapiRapi Sunrise was my favorite out of the lot (even though it's probably one of my least favorite songs of hers). She's so cute with her face pink from performing.  :oops: Mad props to Kikka for managing to jump around in those heels, I'd be flat on my face in two seconds flat.

Ruka messing up the intro was a pretty good bonus :lol:

Since they announced Kikka's appearance at AWA, I've been working through her back catalog so that I could get to know her a bit better. What I wasn't expecting was how ridiculous she acted during her image dvd and pb making of, so I thought I'd share caps of my favorite Kikka derp moments  :P

First off, Kikka talks about how some of her pb shots are unusable... because she spread her legs too much

Kikka is still under the H!P umbrella right? Does she ever perform H!P songs during her concerts? For example, Anataboshi or maybe some other Milky Way or other H!P stuff? I checked out TIF12, but from what I could tell she only performed her own solo work. However, that's just a festival gig, it may be different from her own one man lives?

^ I've only heard of Kikka performing her own songs since she became a proper solo act. But I can always be corrected if someone knows better >o<

Also Kikka isn't officially H!P, no... She mostly just opens H!P concerts for instance, and isn't part of the main act. I just consider her "H!P enough" to be included in our H!P polls and shit. :D

°e's report of Kikkawa You at Anime Weekend Atlanta [Sept 28-30, 2012] (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=33969.0)
Honestly, I didn't expect this to be that big of a deal. I got reeled in about getting into the con for free but mostly to meet fellow HiPsters. I knew I would be able to take pics and all but I didn't expect to be actually treated as "staff". The privilege was an honor and I thank Daigong for making it happen! You can see my dramatic change of thought in the con thread from being indifferent about Kikka to instant fan. XD Even if my fandom ends up shortlived at least I will always remember this weekend. :D

...

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

I said to Slack and Rei that one day Kikka's gonna end up doing the JPHiP sign accidentally during a future photoshoot. XD




JPHiP Interview: Kikkawa You @ Anime Weekend Atlanta (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=33970.0)
I believe with all my heart that "idols are magic".  With just a smile and her charms, a top-notch idol can enchant, enthrall, and entertain you into giving her your love and support.  If you are at all receptive to her magic, meeting such an idol in person can put you under a spell that you never want to end. 

Kikkawa You (a.k.a. "Kikka") is such an idol, and on September 28, the first day of Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012, fellow JPHiP members Rei-chan and °e-girl joined me in a 30-minute private interview with Kikka.  Going in, Rei-chan and °e-girl were not exactly huge Kikka fans, but by the time the interview was over, all three of us left the room thoroughly enchanted by the young songstress.

Hey, I like YOU! XD You really can't go wrong making puns with her name. :lol: Speaking of name, I should've done the "W" sign with her at AWA because my soon to be last name will be "Yu" so we can be "Double Yu(u)s" XD

Anyway, I really enjoyed her album. I probably listened to it about 3 times in my car since the con but I haven't lately cuz I put it back in the case (that she signed. Must preserve it!) and meant to make a copy. So now my car rides have been boring since I keep forgetting to burn it. :roll: I really like her voice. I remember checking out some of her songs so I can at least be familiar with her before the con and I was impressed. It's so pleasant sounding, reminds me of young Ayaya without the nasally sound and Eri if she had control of her voice. :lol: Her song "Sweetie" definitely sounded like Eri.

She's quite goofy too (if chanting "o-mizu" during her concert is any indication lol). I saw this pic on twitter today where she's doing either a Sadako or Spiderman crawl on the floor barefooted. :lol: I tried to find it again but it's lost in a sea of twitter posts. I'm afraid she'll become my new Eri.  :sweatdrop: She's just so likable. hehe

Found this cool pic  8) What's Kikka Fes all about? Looks like a lot of fun.

Though her album included some B-sides, I'd recommend Fuyuzora Hanabi in particular.
That's one of my favorite song's of hers, and Nights4Saturn, the guy I was hanging out with a lot, would agree it's awesome.
I first heard her sing it on recordings of the H!P Winter concerts before her debut and I've loved it ever since!

Plenty of Kikka promotion to be found throughout Tokyo  :thumbup

Most CD stores have some posters or even a listen station:

Tower Records, Akihabara:

You could also see her promo clip playing on the various huge screens in Shibuya, etc.

In the end I didn't go to her concert because my body was broken from previous events and there's the cash issue too.
I realized Morning Musume also had two big concerts in Tokyo on the same day, so I wonder if that affected the amount of people who went to see Kikka. I hope not too much. Props to Kikka for doing three shows on one day and congrats for getting some recognition as a solo artist.

Post by: SomethingWild on November 07, 2012, 06:25:27 PM
^Awesome. Awesome to the max.


I have some random Kikka thoughts.

1. Ever since she dyed her hair Kikka gives me a really western vibe. Not just her hair, but even her clothes and general appearance. She doesn't look like the typical Japanese idol any more. In one way it's good because it makes her more unique and it makes her stand out. Which is what you want if you want to make it as a solo artist. On the other hand it may lose her some of the more traditional idol fans. Not sure, but I'm trying to figure why she hasn't become big yet.

2. She needs better songs. I've been going through her discography a lot lately, but the songs just aren't catchy enough. From a song writing point of view I think "Darling to Madonna" is her best song to date. It has everything. A lot of her other songs aren't that memorable, if I'm completely honest. I had the same feeling after the concert. It was great, but you don't find yourself singing or humming her songs that much afterwards.

3. I think the cover album is a big risk. Firstly, it's too early in her career. If one of these songs becomes a hit she'll be forever known as the cover artist. In addition, she doesn't have the stature of a successful solo artist just yet, and I feel that a cover album should be special, or some sort of tribute to the original artists. I'm not really feeling that with this album. From what I gathered at the conference she said the songs are all from the 80s? OK, but why? She wasn't even alive during the 80s. I think she would have benefited more from an album with her own original songs, especially now she's getting her name out there a bit more.

4. Her songs, and especially her choreography remind of what Kotone Mai is doing. Luckily, Kikka feels a lot fresher and definitely more real. Kotone felt like she's pushing herself to appear young and energetic, whereas Kikka is just being herself. I hope Kikka doesn't end up in the same 'circuit' as Kotone. I hope she'll be given the chance to develop more as a vocalist, but also as an actress. Grow beyond idol horror movies and get some proper roles in nice doramas. I know she has the capability, but I hope she'll be given the chance.

I didn't know that Yuu is Hello Project.
She is a great addition to Hello Project, as a new line of soloist.
Since Hello Project didn't have many soloist before.
Cute face, great voice, nice smile, she is the whole package.  :otomerika:

I think she would have benefited more from an album with her own original songs, especially now she's getting her name out there a bit more.

I'm not really sure I agree. It's early in her career and she's not all that popular yet. I know her sales are pretty much comparable to Manoeri's and I think she's great, but since she's not really established yet I think it's fine for her to experiment (like the variety of songs they included on her first album, playing around with genres) The chances of her becoming famous for a cover she did are pretty slim anyway, so it doesn't seem risky. If anything, it might get more people interested and at least googling her because they enjoyed something she did. I don't really think it'll make or break her.

Plus probably a lot of it comes down to finances. I would imagine it's cheaper to produce a cover album with rearranged songs rather than create something completely original


As for the direction of her songs, I'm inclined to agree with you. I didn't even like Darling to Madonna and I bought it (though really, I bought it because I wanted the Watashi ga obasan ni nattemo cover!) :P My favorite song of hers is Hirahira hoshi from her album, I'd love to see more songs with an electronic sound that's a little more mature, I guess.

Kikka is my favorite idol lately so of course I want the best for her, but I'm not really that worried about her career right now. As long as she's releasing music and I can support her, I'll do what I can.

Post by: Slack on November 08, 2012, 06:19:34 AM
I don't see any threat of her being known as a "cover artist". Honestly, I don't think I've ever heard of any major idols who are described like that. Yes, they're covers of other songs, but the songs are in diverse styles and from different idol eras.  These are seriously famous songs that have serious nostalgia value for a lot of people.  To me, that serves to draw some interest of the fans of the original songs as well as shows off her awesome versatility.

That's not to say that this album is only for the nostalgia value, since all the tracks are produced by known Vocaloid producers.  Not only does this serve to update these songs for a more modern audience, but it also adds a layer of cross-genre appeal that gets some of the Vocaloid fans interested.  If anything, I'd think this album positions her not as a cover artist but more as a Vocaloid singer. (Does this genre even exist outside of Kikka?)

She's already marketed a little like that anyway, given how her last few releases have had the regular edition covers drawn in that Vocaloid style.  If their aim was to market her exclusively as an idol, they would put a photo of her on the cover, not a character illustration.  I think that's a sign that they're trying to position her halfway between "idol" and "artist".

Really, I see no risk in this album. It makes perfect sense given where she came from and where her career is going.  What she needs now is something with broad appeal that will get people's attention.  After that, her talent, beauty, and charm do the rest.

I gotta admit I thought Kikka was doing better than she is. I thought she was selling in the 20K range for some reason  :O2

Kikkake wa You: 15,456
HapiRapi Sunrise: 11,731
Konna Watashi: 5,075
Koko Kara: 3,308
Darling to Madonna: 3,595

Man, I feel really bad for her now. It must suck to work so hard and get worse sales with each release.
Hopefully she reached a turning point with DtM and is on her way up again. I'm convinced she managed to gain new fans at her overseas appearances.

So yeah, with this new perspective I agree with you guys. This cover album may not be a bad idea after all.

Vocaloid singer. (Does this genre even exist outside of Kikka?)

I mentioned this in the IRC already, but for the sake of discussion I'll post it here as well. Watanabe Mayu's 3rd single (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=33943.msg1114960#msg1114960) also goes for the vocaloid angle and the CD covers (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=33943.msg1113414#msg1113414) also feature a anime version of herself. I honestly didn't make the Kikka connection until Slack pointed it out, because Mayu had the 'cyborg idol' character ever since she joined and they just expanded on it. Trying not be biased, but I dig the Mayu stuff too because it's just really well done. But yeah, it sucks for Kikka because one of her appeal points becomes less special this way.

^That was a nice special  :thumbup It showed off Kikka's charm and energy to some extent.

I felt her French was a little bit better than her English. "Trois croissants s'il vous plait!" Idol + food = huge smile.

Paris looked really good on her. She totally fit in with that bright red coat.
Loved the MM interaction as well. They seemed pretty tired and Kikka was all "GROUP FUN FRENCH FOOD YAY"  :lol:

You has it all....as the one fan in the above special mentioned- she really engages on a personal level with fans, and has a wonderful positive energy.

Of course she is beautiful and sings well, but she also has a really cute speaking voice. I have noticed what Something Wild pointed out, she has a 'non Japanese idol' vibe.

Maybe partly because she is a solo artist now, and because she doesn't have other group members to bounce off of while overseas, she engages more with the people that she meets then some idols do when they are overseas. {that being said, her meet up in the restaurant with some of the Morning Musume members was really nice to watch - and also her one on one with Mizuki at a sidewalk cafe}

It is a tough, competitive music market in Japan, and for a singer who has idol roots, it is even tougher to break out of the mold. But the special above as a study of a young Japanese woman trying to make her way in the world is a really well produced film.

And it also works as a documentary to show Japanese viewers how foreigners are interested in various Japanese culture both old and new.

It is heartwarming to see the support You has had from JPH!P members, and this will surely help You become more well known to foreign fans. And as you watch the North American & European fans react to You's performances, it is obvious they are impressed by her talent and captured by her persona. Her "trois croissants, s'il vous plait" was kawaii indeed, and she got the ticket sales guy at the subway to smile (is not an easy task)

And of course you have Paris....there are other beautiful cities in the world, but there is only one Paris. (Consolation prizes awarded to Orleans, Brussels and Atlanta)

A huge congratulations to Kikkawa You, for a well done documentary (nice PV to finish), and looking forward to her continued success!!

Kanpai Senshi After V Sentai Parody Slated for April
posted on 2014-02-26 00:30 EST

Show will premiere April 7 with Kamen Rider alumni, singer You Kikkawa


(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip07060.jpg)

A new live-action super sentai parody show titled Kanpai Senshi After V (Cheers! Warriors After Five) will premiere on April 7. The show follows the Golden Warriors Treasure Five members who battle an evil organization around Akihabara. The comedy-drama picks up "after hours" when the members have a beer after fighting evil all day. The show was shot at the real Nijyu-maru Akihabara sake bar.

The series stars Ryota Murai (Kamen Rider Decade) as the red warrior, Kazuki Kato (Kamen Rider Kabuto) as the blue warrior, singer You Kikkawa (Kirarin Revolution, Sengoku Collection) as the pink warrior, Akihiro Kimura (one half of the Buffalo Goro comedy duo, live-action Moyashimon) as the aging yellow warrior, and stand-up comedian Tsubasa Tobinaga (one half of the Rubber Girl comedy duo) as the green warrior. Toru Hosokawa (Polar Bear's Café scripts) is directing the series.

Toei produced the Hikōnin Sentai Akibaranger (Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger) super sentai parody for two seasons. The show followed three "unofficial rangers" as they protect Tokyo's Akihabara otaku shopping district from the evil Malseena and the Stema Otsu Corporation, despite the fact it is all a ruse.

I haven't actually watched this in full yet, but though the filename includes Kikka-chan, it appears that she doesn't actually appear in this (though they seem to talk about her quite a bit).

Kikkawa You to release the longest song in idol history
February 15, 2015

Kikkawa You will release a new single (currently untitled) on May 6th.

This was announced on February 13th during her Valentine event 'Kikka no Valentine Party ~Choco no Kazoekata~'. Her new single is said to be "an unique work in idol history." At the present stage, it's known that "one song is several tens of minutes long" and "Kikkawa You will sing about a woman's way of life in opera and musical style."

Regarding the new song, Kikkawa commented, "There have been rumors that a 'solo idol is coming', but Kikka is a solo idol among solo idols that does original things. In a good way, I hope to stay as an idol who stands out. I hope to sing about a woman's way of life in many forms, expressions, and voice, so please look forward to it."
