(Artist) Shimatani Hitomi
« on: February 04, 2006, 01:48:47 PM »
She’s considered one of the most beautiful women in Jpop business, if not the most beautiful of all, and after the release of her 5th album, Heart&Symphony, she’ll be back on March 15th with a new release, a Double-A side single!!! Title is Harutai Nin 春待人 / Camellia -カメリア. OH MY GOD! Shimatani’s songs are gorgeous, being a-side or b-side (c/w, coupling track), but if they decided to make an a-side, it means both songs are equal gorgeous, what would make a gorgerousx2 single! *I'm too excited* Shimatani rulesss :jerk:

March 15th is the official 'Shimatani Love' day because she's releasing 3 things on it:

~double A-side single 「春待人/Camellia -カメリア-」
~PV collection DVD 「VISUAL WORKS 2004~2006」
~live DVD 「Premium Live 2005 -Heart&Symphony&More-」

hooray! \^o^/

I think I'm buying the PV集, it's so worth it, Music+Beauty=<3<3<3

oh, and btw, 春待人 reads as ハルマチビト=harumachibito, it's what her official site says ^^;

The covers are out!

Harumachibito -Front Cover- ----- Camellia -Back Cover-

Premium Live 2005 ---------------- VISUAL WORKS 2004~2006


OK, avex need to hire a new stylists team :x They never can capture Hitomi-san's beauty ._. They could've switched PV/concert covers for my buying pleasure at least :O Oh well.

There's also a special site with bonus contents that you can access if you buy an item, it'll be working from 3/15 till 4/15.

She looks 1000000000x better in videos :evil: I can't even imagine how pretty she's in person :w00t:

And curly hair is just not her thing imo.

imho
Song-wise: Camellia > Harumachibito
PV-wise: Harumachibito > Camellia
Overall: Hitomi is one of the bestest (I still love you Tomo-chan! ToT)

'Harumachibito' was just so-so to me. But Camellia's going up as one of my favourite releases from her.

I LIKE Shimatani Hitomi!! ^o^

So glad that I got into her when back when! lol

She's an awesome singer, although sometimes I wonder what the producers at Avex are thinking  :?  Oh well...

Shimatani :heart:

Hitomi had 1 photobook in 2002 :o
(Which I thought is out of print ages and ages ago, but no, you can buy it on Amazon.Jp :D http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/4847027388)

Her 2006 calendar had a risky cover :twisted:

The photos inside are not worth buying it though :/

Hitomi's new double A side single 春待人/Camellia-カメリア- sold astonishing... 7147 copies :x It landed at #19 of Oricon weekly. That's what you get for putting the songs on PV DVD and using album cut as b-side -_- Well, the DVDs did much better, of course, and that's a relief: VISUAL WORKS got #9 and Premium Live got #11, with Koda Kumi's first live in-between (released 9.21 last year... that's what I call hotcakes power).

I'm still dreaming of her upcoming single. I want it to be Perseus and Falco together  :lol:
Hitomi's VISUAL WORKS is GOLD. Her PVs are for sure the best PVs ever, in all storyline aspects and technical terms.
