Momoiro Clover Z thread. go.
I re-watched the Gounn Tour Bluray it is really fantastic, enjoyed it even more the second time.
Feel like I prefer the smaller stage shows than arena concerts.
Nowhere, because these are the slowest threads on 4chan.
Well she was once the leader and got booted from that job so stuff went down we don't really know about. It also annoys me her and Momoka get pushed to the back as far as marketing goes.
im under the impression that Deko-chan is the only that gets the spotlight as far as marketing go
how ironic that the youngest momoclo has had the full grown woman aura for a while, while the other ones still can pass for fifteen year olds
I wish I had never discovered momoclo. Too old and busy to learn Japanese, all I have is a smattering of subbed momoclo stuff that I watch over and over. Most of that stuff comes from other fan doms even.
I look at the mountains of morning musume, Akb, downtown, gccx, utaban and various talk shows have available subbed and I wonder why some of Japan's biggest musical entertainers have nowestern fandom.
I curse their management knowing how if they were not so xenophobic,anal and militant there would be a chance a decent fandom may have sprouted.
Most of all...
I curse I'll never know just how insane my beloved reni chan truly is
they may start the push outside of japan once all the members have graduated high school.
Hey guys there are about an hour and a half worth of fresh subs I've never seen before on that youtube channel. All posted in the last week.
Are they available anywhere else?
Stardust will take it down as soon as they see it. Can any of you 3 or 4 jp momoclo posters download and save them, for the sake of my sanity. I literally have no capacity to download or even watch them for at least a week.
Thanks for posting this the Q documentary is good, fans will know most of this info but behind the scenes is always cool.
For me the most interesting part was the history of pen lights in Japanese Concerts.
Olympic stadium isn't worth watching past when it gets up to the concert footage if you don't want to spoil everything since the bluray is coming out in a few weeks.
>I curse their management knowing how if they were not so xenophobic,anal and militant there would be a chance a decent fandom may have sprouted
Is this really the case? Not sure what you are referring to exactly. All I can think of is around the time 5th dimension released it was blocked from international sale on Amazon JP it pissed me off at the time but the ban was lifted later on. never had a problem buying anything since.
When moon pride released they even put up a brand new english profile and info on the website
I think momoclo just doesn't appeal in the same way those other groups do to western audiences.
Yeah, it's the Japanese music industry in general that's stupidly xenophobic. Momoclo just doesn't appeal to the sort of wota that would fanatically fansub. I'd start, but although my japanese is good enough to get the gist of raw clips, it's not good enough to sub yet.
One day it will come out this guy fucked Kanako I guarantee. He has known momoclo since forever and was way too friendly with Kanako in TV appearances. They were spending backstage time together at various events also. and now they are singing his songs again.
nah, this guy got first bibs and would beat the crap outa him.
>dang, chief manager now.
Does anyone know the music they used in the first 3 minutes of this Q video previously posted.
I know Japanese TV has basically free range on music publisher catalogues so it could be from anything.
The show was good made me get emotional.
Why this isn't even mentioned in momoclo threads? Does nobody know about it
its old and thats 'momoiro clover' not 'momoiro clover z'.
>You will never wear the same clothes as momoclo and perform Mouretsu on stage with them.
On Gounn bluray behind the scenes who sneaks most looks at cameras during rehearsal
Gotta love those anime characters that look nothing like the real thing
Ooops made it mistake it was actually from White Hot Xmas behind the scenes.
>pile of shit thread
The AKB threads are basically 2 guys, one of which posts the same pics of that one member over and over; the Babymetal are creepy 40 somethings arguing about how would they kidnap those girls. And this is a shitty thread?
Shiori loves to stick her tongue out.
Its almost impossible to pick a top 5, I tried to think about the best live performance songs that you want to see every live, especially stuff that gets the crowd hyped.
1) Roudou Sanka
2) Kuroi Shuumatsu
Could easily substitute in Kasou Dystopia, Chai Maxx, Sora No Curtain with any of the above too.
I thought their band name was interesting and downloaded one of their PVs.
Reni was my least favorite member in the beginning, now she's my favorite.
i take it you havent seen the "i know what you did last summer" series.
I know right, they really put on a fantastic show this might be their best live yet though toujinsai the next concert looks like it was just as good from the small amount of footage they released.
Also adding the live-band was the best thing ever always sounds fantastic in the songs its used.
I'm considering a trip to Japan for Momokuri this year.
The only thing that leads me to hesitate (besides the absurd cost) is that it seems like their concerts are autotuned or something for release because the live-streams always sound so much worse than the Blurays.
One of few good reason to live in Australia no tax on any import purchases under $1000. Amazon JP removes Japanese tax since I live overseas making it cost only 8360yen + 1100yen international express shipping which should make it arrive within 5 days sometimes even quicker.(was with the typical 25% off bonus you get off everything for preordering on amazon jp).
Feels good man getting it cheaper than even any Japanese person who buys it in a retail store will pay.
I would love to go to but it seems really hard to get tickets. Also with the sound I am sure part of the difference is hearing sound that is being played through huge speakers effected by venue acoustics and recorded again vs listening directly to the recorded source. So yeah live in person probably sounds better than streams / TV backstage recording but not as clear as bluray.
If anyone has attended they should comment.
randomly stumbled across this around whatever time the MV was released on youtube.
/jp/ introduced them to me a few years ago, with the Kaitou Shoujo music video.
They've been my favorite idol group ever since.
Are you guys watching those recent Momoclo Chan episodes?
Those parts with Bob Sapp as a guest really make me laugh my ass off, especially when the girls try to talk with him in english.
Kanako can't come up with proper sentences, but Shiori is pretty good at it.
Would you guys wear a MCZ hoodie outside in public . Feel like the Purple might stand out too much.
what the hell, id wear THIS. I dont care the dirty looks i get
Any shops that ship that stuff internationally and don't require credit cards?
It all comes from there since its the official online store you would have to use a japanese mail forwarding service and paypal account.
And I like that face collage got any more like that?
No because Amazon JP has sold out of their entire allotment for the 2 concert pack on both DVD and Bluray. Individual days are still available for 25% off though. They should get in more stock of double pack after release.
Stole photo from momoiro clover net forums they coincidently rode the same train together.
Akari is doing good for herself these days, but you have to wonder what could have been if she stayed with the group.
You should check out the FNS music festivals. Mostly just collaborations and not popular old songs, but still nice.
inb4 they take down the audio
I like the girl with the orange hair.
This is from last years christmas show. I like how you can see the disgust in the guys face.
Hiromi Go did a collab with fucking Kishidan of all groups this year. MCZ sang with him last year too.
Also I didn't realise the back up singer for MCZ had her own career. She sang this song with Reni in the Folk show.
>taking third year advanced Japanese
> It's very difficult so most weeaboos have quit.
> class takes a tangent into Japanese geography
> teacher asks how I know so many Japanese prefectures
>there's a song...
>she asks me to send it to the class
Whoops! Now everyone knows I like watching underage girls in bright colors dancing.
Wrong thread boss.
That is funny. I am weird about letting people know about all the Japanese music I listen to. At least that situation is probably more accepting.
>Whoops! Now everyone knows I like watching underage girls in bright colors dancing
underage? Aarin is the youngest and she is like 18 at least
if AKB was only 5 members, and they didnt made gravure, i doubt they would be as huge as Momoclo
b-but thats Shiori arm around Akarin shoulders isnt it?
>she will never be your pretty shop keeper right.
Valentine's day concert from this year. There's no blu ray release, but you can watch a VoD of it on their ustream from their 24hour stream this year. Highlight is Momoka doing A-rin's song.
I'm too bad to write my own bass lines and the only one I can find online is for Moon Pride.
end of the month, internet finally uncapped.
Time to download all the momoclo-chan episodes I have missed.
look at the history section
She has not done the most latest concerts for some reason which is disappointing. Not a fan of the British lady.
The Japanese guy screws up often in one concert song intro he says "If we work together there is nothing we CAN do instead of CAN'T." which makes me laugh every time. I have also seen him doing announcing for Ryu ga Gotoku live stream event but I don't know his name. I am sure he probably does wrestling / boxing / fighting stuff but I don't watch it.
Man they are going all out promoting this.
Something Interesting is while double pack is number one on bluray charts the individual days are outside top 100. This is not at all typical usually they would be maybe 10+ or so positions down. Seems like the extra packaging / live CD is encouraging the majority to upgrade to the double pack.
The picture doesn't capture the best part of that. The girls are shaking hands with kanako, and the guy in pink (on the left) gets denied by the security guards.
Imagine being that guy lmao.
This is more a point on Japanese Idols in general but how the hell did they go to school? Aarin is blogging about her upcoming graduation, etc.
They may be weekend heroines, but being one of the top music groups in Japan seems like a full time job...
It is not uncommon with amazon but they should divide the combined postage cost so you will not pay any extra. if some items are going out of stock or held at different distribution centres it seems to happen.
Sure must be weird for their classmates if anything wonder if they interact much or just ignore. I wonder if they even have friends outside their group. Reni and Momoka seem to hang out alot.
Was it also her who played the bird noises when it was Momokas turn?
Looks like Masahiro Tanaka doesn't mention being a Mononofu on his twitter anymore. He switched to "I like idols."
This stuff is all from 2010, right?
>Why is Momoka so afraid of birds anyway?
probably something like this happened to her
Mine is in France already.
It's not very far to Germany from there. Friday is my day off, hopefully it's here by then.
Yes it arrived.
When you open it is a good idea to leave the plastic shell inside the plastic sleeve will make putting everything back inside much easier.
I also got Up Up Girls Kakko Kari first Blu-ray.
They seem pretty cool. Their you tube has all their music videos and some live performances. It might appeal to some here.
