The cover for Mitsui Aika’s first photobook, simply titled Aika, has been released. And I gotta say I am pretty happy about how the cover looks. Of course like most photobooks do, it features Aika in a bikini. And I really love the bikini they picked. It’s pretty simple and Aika still looks alluring without showing too much skin or being over exposed. And believe me with her boobs she could. XD
I also hadn’t noticed but it seems like Mittsi also lightened her hair to an auburn shade and has added bangs. (Well she’s had bangs for a while now, but they were more side swept and these are straight.) Which really suits her, she looks incredible. And the bangs give a nice overall balance to the shape of her face.
Aika was also in UTB magazine, and those pictures are most likely previewing her photobook. But since I’m not 100% about that I’m not going to post them here.
Stop the presses! Hold the phone! Better yet, somebody pinch me! The most exciting news to come out of H!P nearly all year has been announced. Better than S/mileage’s major debut, better than Arihara Kanna’s first photobook(I don’t care if she’s not H!P anymore.), better than the 9th generation Morning Musume auditions. 8th generation Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika is getting her first photobook. It is simply entitled Aika and will be released on January 26. And I honestly can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year.
I cannot believe that my favorite Morning Musume and Hello!Project member Mittsi is finally getting a photobook. She has only said about 800 times how much she’s wanted one.
I actually think she’s been saying she’s wanted once since 2008. Well, as they say good things come to those that wait.
I am completely freaking out. I actually kinda lost all hope of her ever getting one. But obviously she would eventually get one, one day. Especially since every other member without a photobook either has released or is releasing one. And I honestly couldn’t be happier about the whole situation. And Aika is releasing this photobook at the perfect time.
Because Aika has been looking so fresh and mature lately. And of course she always looks lovely and adorable.
Also Mitsui Aika in a bikini?
Up Front’s official youtube channel has uploaded a short behind the scenes clip/making of the DVD that she is also releasing. And so far it’s looking pretty cute. But did anyone else notice she’s wearing the exact same yellow bikini that Koharu has worn before?
Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika will be making her acting debut starring in a straight to DVD horror movie, called Real Kakurenbo Final, set to be released on January 7, 2011. This is definitely exciting news for Aika fans, such as myself. Maybe this means my beloved Mittsi is finally gaining some real popularity, because they could have easily given this role to Sayumi or Reina. Straight to DVD release or not, she’s in a movie before more popular and established members. I take this whole situation as being extremely positive for Aika’s career. And maybe this means in 2011 she’ll finally get that illusive photobook she, and many fans, have been waiting for.However, Mitsui Aika or not I will most likely not watch the movie. I don’t know, I guess I’m a bad H!P fan but I haven’t really cared about any of H!P’s acting jobs. I could care less about Ai-chan’s random crime drama. (Q.E.D.) Or Yaguchi Mari’s and Meada Yuuka’s mermaid movie. (Hoshisuna no Shima no Chiisana Tenshi ~Mermaid Smile~) I didn’t care about Niigaki Risa’s and Nakajima Saki’s movie who’s trailer I didn’t even watch. ( Honto ni Atta Kowai Hanashi 3D ) Or even Yajima Maimi’s and Fukuda Kanon’s horror movie. (Fuyu no Kaidan/Winter Ghost Story) Well actually I do care about Winter Ghost Story because Kanon’s in it, but it’s not like I’ve watched it yet. Well let’s not also forget JunJun’s web drama (Dreaming Places Makes Us Dream) and ManoEri’s web drama and movie (Mano Spy/Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro Kaiki) that I also haven’t cared about. XD
The lot of the dramas/movies either look really boring or are starring members I don’t really care about. I guess I’m just the kind of person who doesn’t watch something just because of who’s in it. Granted I have done that with JE dramas and movies before. But only because they are were remotely interesting. I’ll never watch Code Blue or something stupid like that. I even do that sometimes with American movies. (I sat through both horribly immature Camp Rock movies just for the Jonas Brothers XD) But I mostly watch them because I have something pretty to stare at for a couple of hours. H!P members are pretty yet not in the same sense. I think this whole paragraph might be a contradiction. XD
While I am on the subject of H!P acting, I think it’s completely awesome that H!P members have started acting. I’ve wanted them to act for the longest time since JE groups/artists always act. And what will boost your popularity/your groups popularity more then a highly successful drama? Aside from an amazing single, close to nothing.
Guardians 4’s Omakase! Guardian PVE was released recently. And after seeing the covers the PV is everything I hoped it wouldn’t be.
The video is completely cheap looking. The entire time they are either dancing in front of or sitting on stadium seats. There’s also a good minute worth of clips from the anime scattered throughout the PV. Which I don’t particularly care about. I understand they are doing the theme to the anime, but Buono never had clips from the anime in their PVs. That makes it pretty obvious Guardians 4 isn’t going to be around for that long. There are some positive points the this PV though. For one every one looks super cute in the close ups. I really loved the dance too. Even though it was obnoxiously simple, it was cute and it looked like they were having fun doing it. I also love all the cute things they do throughout the PV, like cheer and hold up the signs. Especially Aika hitting the drum, that was just amazing. I think the whole video was just a win for Aika. She dominated the cuteness in this video, she was also the most interesting to watch. And of course Yurina was a close second.

Does anyone else think this was made of plastic?
Simple dance #2. Kiss Kiss Kiss anyone?

The cutest scene from the whole video!
Saki trying to look cute, but just looks like a deer in headlights
Starting April 4th there will be a new group to promote Shugo Chara called Guardians 4. This group will consist of Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika, C-ute member Nakajima Saki, and Berryz Koubou members Kumai Yurina and Sugaya Risako. Their first single, Omakase! Guardian, will come out on May 27th and will be the new opening theme to Shugo Chara.
This is seriously amazing news. Yurina is finally in a subgroup! And it’s about time. Yurnia is my favorite Berryz member. And she’s more talented then she gets credit for. And Mittsi in another group is amazing. Gotta love all the Aika love that’s going on lately. I’m not to thrilled about the second half though. Saki is one of my least favorite C-ute members and even though Risako can really sing, I think she already gets enough attention. The same thing happened with Athena & Robikerottsu. I listned to them for Aika and Risa. Another thing that’s going to be interesting about this group is who is going to be the leader and main singer. I really don’t want to see an overdose of Risako or even her as the main singer. Her being in the group alone is enough. I’m actually hoping Aika takes lead vocals. Since she’s growing in popularity and singing opportunities. It doesn’t really matter who gets the main vocals though since Shugo Chara groups have really fair line distribution. And every one pretty much gets equal screen time. As for leader they will probably go the Buono and High King route. Where they don’t have an official leader and one of the member names themselves as the unofficial leader. But if there is a leader it should definitely be Yurina.
The whole con of this group is Shuo Chara Eggs possibly disappearing. Which makes the whole Guardians 4 group bittersweet. I gain Aika and Yurina in a group but lose Yuuka and Kanon in one. Which is kind of terrible. Since Yuuka and Kanon are Eggs there’s a possibility we’ll never see from them again. I hope that doesn’t happen. Yuuka and Kanon deserve to be in an official group anyway.
