If anyone knows of anyone who is able to record it or something please post about it in here or pm me - usually I would just wait around but I've been adoring the pictures I've been seeing of this (I love the Shitennou immensly so) and this musical is something I have to watch!!! Since it's not a "regular" musical I'm really worried we won't get a normal DVD release so I'm rly hoping someone manages to record the livestream~

I'm sure it'll get a DVD release (maybe even a BD release), so I wouldn't worry about that. MissDream has someone who says she's going to record it, so we should be getting a fansub release from them sometime in October.

Knowing how Nogizaka stuff gets released there will probably be MULTIPLE versions of the dvd/blu-ray.

Even simple CD releases can have up to like 5 different versions - veritable money pit....

And their hardcore fans will collect them all, as an obligation. lol

I tried watching & listening to at least 3 music videos of Nogizaka46 and they're still plagued with the same curse of Jpop 10 years ago which makes them either sound generic, bland, mediocre, forgettable or average. :roll: This is why Kpop is miles ahead of Jpop already. :umno:



At least they'll be singing to :usagi: songs. :group hug::hug:

J-pop has largely been stalled for the past decade or so, which could also be a reason for the Chinese idol group SNH48's breakup w/ its former sister group AKB48 (which's managed by the same company as Nogizaka46) & its investments/acquisition of stakes in Korean entertainment companies to help train its & its subgroups' members (it's even sent its elite members to S. Korea for receiving intensive training by them) & produce various content.

Shouldn't it be the behind the scenes people (song writers, content creators, marketers, directors, etc.) who should be getting that intensive training? :question:

The music of most of these 40+ idol groups are just not memorable unless you're a super fan. :grey:

Some of them (right from the company president himself lol ) have already studied the relevant skills &/or working in the relevant fields overseas before returning to the country, & like those elite members, they pass on those skills/knowledge/expertise to their colleagues/subordinates.

Such groups aren't all about the music in the 1st place XD - they're multi-role entertainment groups of which the musical content is just a (sometimes even relatively small) part. lol

^^Whether the music of J-pop idol groups is memorable or non is a matter of personal tastes and opinion. They are already hugely popular in Japan itself, and have also garnered numerous foreign fans. Contrary to popular belief, J-pop has far from stalled, as mega-sized groups such as the 48 & 46 family have thrived and contributed greatly to Japan's economy.

And the SNH48's breakup with the 48 family is more due to politics and public image than anything else. After all, human nature and mindset is hard to change :evil:.

MNL48 is barely competing against the likes of Black Pink and Momoland. I do want to support them but I feel like they're marketed to mimic Japanese school girls. I just don't feel the connection. I might try to see them once again just to see if they've improved.

Also here's a famous Japanese blogger who visits the Philippines and has a fan base here as well. He's very insecure about how Korean culture is more popular among Filipino millenials.


Last year people would often mistake me for Korean and call me "Oppa!" sometimes "Anyeonghaseyo."

And when I say, "I'm sorry I'm not Korean. I'm Japanese."

When that happens, a lot of people would ask what is "Hello" in Japanese?

And I thought why do people know "anyeounghaseyo" but not know ''konnichiwa?"

As a Japanese, I got sad.

It's true that k-pop and Korean dramas are popular in the Philippines that's why they know it but I wanted Filipinos to know more and more about Japan, too.
Japan's influence is still strong here like restaurants and anime but Jpop isn't making headlines here or hardly talked about unless its an old 90's anime soundtrack or meme. That song 'Pineapple Pen' was the only one to compete with Psy.

Some of them (right from the company president himself lol ) have already studied the relevant skills &/or working in the relevant fields overseas before returning to the country, & like those elite members, they pass on those skills/knowledge/expertise to their colleagues/subordinates.
Practicality got the best of them. There's actually some retail stores (Mumoso, Yoyoso, Miniso, etc.) here (also Vietnam) who falsely advertise their product and branding is from Korea. One of the headquarters of the retail store's main address from their official website actually put the translators address in it. I have to admit even when exposed in Facebook with that information people still go there. :lol:

You should try watching some stuff of Project Revue Starlight - the group is a refreshing change from the "40 plus" groups.

Many fans, especially the Japanese ones, tend to over-politicize that while trying to make sense of it, but what I see is mostly about money issues & business decisions, lol & political factors, especially those concerning Sino-Japanese relations, are pretty marginal/indirect, if any. But I wouldn't like to delve into politics here. :)

MNL48 is barely competing against the likes of Black Pink and Momoland. I do want to support them but I feel like they're marketed to mimic Japanese school girls. I just don't feel the connection. I might try to see them once again just to see if they've improved.
I'm not familiar w/ them, but I think for the sake of long-term development in the country, they should eventually produce their own original content & copyright materials, rather than continuing to adapt from & rely on those of their sister groups in Japan - that's what SNH48 has been doing for years now.

Anyway, let's get back to the topic now. ^_^'

Here's a review of the TEAM MOON version that was written up last month. The article is in English and Japanese. Interestingly, the English uses the term "Sailor Scouts." Also, somewhat awkwardly, the article mistakenly says that Keiko Kitagawa once played Sailor Moon. Well... At least they acknowledged the live action series, which is more than Toei/Kodansha/Bandai have done :lol:
