On MTV, back in the old days, this was called a mash-up:

BELLRING少女ハート vs Nirvana - Smells like c.a.n.d.y.



On another topic, the Brexit and the recent Japanese economy make currency exchanges exponentially expensive. How you people cope with that? I guess for US-Dollar it has become quite cheap, hasn't it?

Pretty sure there's nothing "exponentially" about it ;)

I think the yen-$ rate has actually gotten worse lately for the US.

100 Yen are now like 1 Dollar. Was it always that way? But you are right. With the stronger Yen it probably is bad for them too.

Looked up definitions. You are right again. It is worse than exponential  :grin:

Not too worried about it, the Japanese will do something about the strong yen because it will hurt their sales.

They are trying to do something against it for 2 years already, keyword Abenomics ;)

I know but they might just have to devalue the yen.

So Miyu Yanome and Rena Shinkai graduated from Yururirapo a couple of days ago and they added a new member - it's not really a group I love but I thought they were cute and I do feel a little sad over it, but by now I know being an idol fan results in a lot of "heart-break"



Their graduation was announced a some months ago so when I saw them on my last trip I made sure to get a picture with Miyu, she was really nice - the handshaking event (which I didn't do) involved a neck-massage which goes with their image, I was asked by the staff if I wanted to participated and I was a bit confused but I said no thanks and Miyu made a photograph gesture towards me and I nodded (she knew I would pick her because I bought her photos).
Since they are with the Platinum PASSPO management it's very regulated (the girl that usually is in charge of these groups is really strict), but I tried to get a little talk before the photo and it failed, I said "I'm sad that you are leaving" to which she responded "I live in Tokyo" :banghead:

Anyways  :(

 :lol: She probably understood the "you are leaving" part as "are you living?" or "you are living?".

I'm not sure how impacted countries outside of Europe will be by Brexit, but the strong yen will have an effect on anyone traveling there. Last November, 1 CAD gave me roughly 86y. Now I'd get about 80y per dollar.  The trip I'm planning right now at the end of September will last about two and a half weeks so this is a significant difference. Not so big that I will have to alter my plans or anything, but... ouch. I just have to prepare accordingly.

The yen will be high as long as LDP is in power... so basically forever.

Not exactly, BM was a sub-group of Sakura Gakuin.

However 3B Junior as I understand it IS the talent development unit from Stardust Promotion, some members go on to new groups, the most recent one is ROCK A JAPONICA


(posted this because I like the song)


So basically your point is right for the newer groups but not for MMCZ.

So this group has now piqued my curiosity after I found out this morning that they have a Silent Siren connection.

And coincidentally the video for the new single was released today, I really like the chorus... too bad it takes forever for it to be sung the first time. (but overall very typical Stardust sound).



More lolis....

Baseball Girls are now managed by Pixiv-Pro and have some new (bad) costumes



From the same management is a new video from Niji no Conquistador

What have these costumes to do with anything? They are shockingly ridiciulous.
But bad news for you, Rezar. It is highly likely that event prices for the group will be adjusted to Nijicon level... ohohoh...

I doubt it, but there will probably be less interaction time.

With Nijicon I assume you are paying for.... tits!
