Yurina’s semi-sweet solo commercial

Exciting news for Yurina fans like myself, Berryz Koubou member Kumai Yurina was in her first solo commercial. It was a CM for BaseBallBear’s new album, or new single, (What is the) Love & Pop? The title distracts me a little bit. Mostly because isn’t not even a horribly failed English attempt they just need to get rid of one word. I don’t know it just urkes me.

Anyway back on subject. I think Yurina looks gorgeous in this CM. She’s wearing a school girls uniform, which is just instant win for me. Her hair is softly blowing, she just looks awesome.

Though I do kind of hate how she looks in the beginning.

She looks like a deer caught in headlights. I know she’s supposed to

because of the theme of the commercial, but it just looks awkward.

Though she makes up for it with this look.

It’s half creepy and half alluring. I’ll take that.

I wasn’t really expecting blood to shoot out of her lemon, it caught me off guard.

It reminded me of Koishite Akuma XD. I had to laugh a little at it
though, just because it’s not believable looking. Japanese blood
never looks real. Just like in the Suicide Club. Love the movie
hate the blood’s appearance.

This picture makes me think Yurina would be perfect for a horror movie.

Where her movie about fighting zombie ghost things?

Cheer on with Guardians 4!

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.

New H!P unit Guardians 4

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.
