Anime Expo® Announces Morning Musume As First Official Guests Of Honor For 2009 Convention In Los Angeles

Nation’s Largest Anime and Manga Convention Welcomes Japan’s Top Female Group from Hello! Project

Anaheim, California and Tokyo, Japan (February 12, 2009) — With excitement beyond belief, Anime Expo® proudly announces the attendance and performance of Japan’s most celebrated and top all-girl music group MORNING MUSUME (also referred to as “Momusu”) to the nation’s largest anime and manga convention held July 2-5, 2009 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. More information can be found on the website www.anime-expo.org.

The MORNING MUSUME (モーニング 娘.  Morning Daughter) is a one of a kind all-girl group whose story began in 1997 when Japanese producer TSUNKU♂ held auditions for a female rock vocalist for his band SHARAN Q held on the Japanese TV show ASAYAN.   With the five runner-ups from the contest, Tsunku decided to create an all-girl group that sold 50,000 copies of their indies CD single “Ai no Tane” and debuted as  MORNING MUSUME. They are the lead group of Hello! Project.

MORNING MUSUME’s first single “Morning Coffee” made a huge splash by hitting the #6 position in the Japanese pop charts within its first week of release.  In August of 1998, MORNING MUSUME reached the #1 spot in the Japanese pop charts with their 3rd single “HOLD ON ME”.  In 1999, the group had their first nationwide tour with 19 performances in 7 cities for 40,000 fans.

In September of 1999, MORNING MUSUME released their smash hit “Love Machine” that sold 2 million copies and held the first place spot in the Japanese pop charts and stayed 17 weeks on the Oricon Karaoke Chart.

MORNING MUSUME is famous not just for being the Japan’s top female group, but also for its unique approach with the shuffling of members.  Producer TSUNKU♂ creates freshness by graduating band members and adding new members to create different units and adds fresh new faces for fans old and new.

In 2007, MORNING MUSUME made a historic impact within the Japanese music industry as the band welcomed new members Jun Jun and Lin Lin from China and began to reach an international audience.   In 2008, MORNING MUSUME celebrated their 10th anniversary.  MORNING MUSUME is definitely the world’s most famous and successful Japanese all-girl group.

MORNING MUSUME consists of band members Ai Takahashi, Risa Niigaki, Eri Kamei, Sayumi Michishige, Reina Tanaka, Koharu Kusumi, Aika Mitsui, JunJun, and LinLin.

This is super super super GREAT NEWS for H!P fans in the US :D

Anime Expo is great but Anime Expo + Momusu = EPIC!

OH YEAH!!!! Momusu is really going global~ last year they did an Asia Tour and now this, Tsunku’s plans of world domination is coming to fruition!

This is also the group’s 1st time performing in continental US since they only perform for fanclubs in Hawaii

This is a good experience for the group because now they can attract more people and fans and what a better way to start it by performing in AX which is one of the biggest anime conventions in the US

I hope this boosts their global popularity even more and i hope that more people will be fans of them

Musume-tachi Ganbatte ne~

Look out America~ Musumes will run over you :D:D:D

Lucky US fans, i envy you~

Cheers~~~~~~~!

Goemon trailer looks and feels awesome!

•01/29/2009 • Leave a Comment

Kazuaki Kiriya’s 2nd film~

Kiriya’s next film is Goemon which is loosely based on a real life folk hero Ishikawa Goemon who was a lot like Robin Hood in that he stole from the rich and gave to the poor. He was also noted for being boiled to death as punishment for a failed attempt to assassinate Toyotomi Hideyoshi who was a Sengoku period daimyo who unified Japan.

The feel of the movie looks like his debut film, Casshern (based on the anime, released in 2004) but in a period setting.

Casshern Trailer:

Goemon Trailer:

Trailer looks solid and i like the overall presentation of the movie~ i’m expecting great things from this…

This movie looks promising and i can’t wait to check it out when it comes out in June~
