Aichan + S/mileage Gets

So we all know that Aichan has officially graduated, and that as of recent, Maeda Yuuka has decided to leave the Hello!Project world, chasing after dear Sakitty.  Hopefully Yuuka and Saki are going to stay friends when they both leave UFA, and who knows, maybe even run into each other at the same University?

Maeda Yuuka Graduating?!

It has NOT been officially confirmed yet, but there are many rumors and newspaper articles stating that Maeda Yuuka will be graduation from S/mileage and Hello!Project on December 31st 2011.  This is just as sudden as Saki's announcement, but the cut seems to be a little deeper this time.  If it's true (which we still do not know for sure yet), at least we have two months left with her.

For those of you who don't know, Sayumi has a new photobook that's coming out on October 27th.  It surprised me how different this photobook is from your average H!P photobook.  It's titled "Sayumiglandoll," and it's pretty darn provocative looking!

10th Generation First Photosets

If you'd like to pick up 10th generation's very first Morning Musume photosets, then you should head on over to HSU.  I think they're really nice and since it's their very first goods, I think it's somewhat special.

Contest 2 Winner

My second contest is now over.  Thank you to everyone who participated!  I felt bad for only being able to pick one winner, because i'm sure that everybody worked really hard on their graphics.  It was a very close race between three graphics, but I decided on one.

Raffi's Second Contest!

September has promptly shown itself out the door, and October has wiped it's feet on the doormat, which can only mean one thing.  It's contest time!  After my first successful contest, I was glad to see how many people participated.

This time around, I want the contest to be something more challenging then just a raffle.  In honor of Takahashi Ai's graduation, I want to see some sort of graphic made in her honor.  It can be any size you choose (not too big please), and using any picture(s) of Aichan you can find.  You can even draw if you want to.  Anything really, just be creative, and think of Aichan!

Here's what you all will be playing for:
A Maji Desu Ka Ska Regular Edition CD!

Deadline is October 5th at 9:00PM PST! Good Luck!
