I don’t know how many people are aware that Mizuki Nana was formerly a part of the seiyuu unit called Prits. They released 3 singles and 1 album.
While the group was not necessarily disbanded, their activity only lasted for one year (throughout 2002). The members consisted of Mizuki Nana, Kobayashi Yumiko, Kuwatani Natsuko, and Mochizuki Hisayo.
But that’s not the point. The point is that, according to Nana-san’s latest blog post, the background vocals and chorus for one of the songs on Nana-san’s 21st single will be done by Prits.
Awesome, no? XDD
Admittedly, I’m not all that familiar with the other two seiyuu on Prits. I’m only familiar with Mizuki Nana and Kuwatani Natsuko (Fate & Arf! XDDD).
And Kohaku Countdown has STARTED. See here if you haven’t already (see banner on the right). Guh… I’m seeing more and more reasons to use WordPress… ;_;
Anyway, GAH! Nana-san sounds so cute! XDD Especially when she said Hajimaru yo!. o(≧ω≦)o
I am not motivated to work in the slightest… -__-;;
Anyway, official information regarding Mizuki Nana’s 21st Single has been updated on the official website. I laugh at how it was available for pre-order since days ago. XDD
The CD will have 4 songs. Confirmed are:
– Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha the MOVIE 1st Opening Song
– Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha the MOVIE 1st Insert Song
– Shining Force Cross Opening Song (Spread of Cross)
I’m betting that the 4th song will be the opening song to MSLN: The Battle of ACES game. It has been confirmed on the game’s main website (and in various magazine articles) that she’ll be doing an all-new opening. That game is to be released on January 21st (on Nana-san’s birthday! XD) so the timing matches.
Next is more radio shows featuring Nana-san as guest.
bayfm ON8 ゲスト：水樹奈々 （2009/10/29） Part1
bayfm ON8 ゲスト：水樹奈々 （2009/10/29） Part2
Mainly more promotion of the 夢幻 single. Nothing particularly interesting that I noticed, though it is amusing to know the producers (of various different programs) wishes for Nana-san to “keep doing lives at the Dome even when she has reached the age of 60” and “to officially become a member of the Hanshin Tigers in order to promote baseball. XDD
A fan sent in a letter saying that she wishes for Mizuki Nana to become a designer one day. That’d be interesting… And honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nana-san makes her own brand one day. XDDD
GRAH! What is wrong with LJ??? It’s time like these that make me seriously want to move off to WP.
ANYWAY. I jumped the official website as soon as I read the comment from .
Mizuki Nana has been appointed to be on the 60th NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen “Kohaku Digital Support Team“
In case anyone starts reading too quickly and missed what I wrote… NO, Nana-san will NOT be performing in this year’s Kohaku. Instead, she is there for publicity purposes. She will be counting down to the Kohaku event, beginning on November 1, 2009 (exactly 60 days before the event) in Digital form (through the PC and cellphone). Basically we’ll be seeing pictures and her blogging skills for 60 days as she counts down. XD;;
More info on the Kouhaku blog here.
Gotta run for classes now. XP
EDIT: I just read Nana-san’s latest blog post. If I’m not misunderstanding, then the countdown blog is a voice blog?
By the way, coverage of the press conference regarding the Digital Support Team can be found here. Scroll down to see (Nana-san’s) photos. :3
What the title says. >_<
I caught up on all the radio shows and now I'm amused.
I know I don't talk about The World of M much, and that’s because there usually isn’t much worth mentioning (even though I still listen to it every week). This (last) week, however, is a different story. The Bring out your voice and read the following Japanese corner (aka Voice Acting Corner) on the World of M brought out a side of Nana-san that we’ve never heard of before. Nana-san attempts to portray a yandere character.
水樹奈々のＭの世界 #017 [2009.10.23]
Go straight to 22:00.
Yandere!Nana: Good morning. Eh? What’s with that red scar? Eh? You were bitten by a mosquito? *evil giggle* It’s not good to lie. I see… It’s because of that woman again. Then… Once school finishes, it’s time for (your) punishment.
Moving on… Now the rest of the radio shows…
Huh… It’s been a while since I last wrote about Mizuki Nana. But what can you do when life gets in the way?
Here’s my attempt to return to my normal fandom life and get away from the depressing.
Quick short review of the 4 songs on the 夢幻 single
As soon as everything clears up, I swear to replay Tales of Symphonia. Nana-san talking about it makes me want to relive the story. =P
If you only want to hear the song, click here
But you should listen to Smile-Gang. Especially the Sma-Dai Campus life corner. Mizuki Nana: Highschool Episode. It follows up the hilarious Tokyo Episode from a while back. XDD No time to translate or summarize right now, but after my midterms are over then maybe. 😛
Back to the song, it has a Tales feel to it (which makes sense XD). I mentioned it several times already, but I can’t wait for the OVA Tales of Symphonia: Tethe’alla side. o(^_^)o There will be a lot of angst but I still want to watch it. 😛
I listened to it once and I can already say that I really like this song. At the beginning it reminded me of Wild Arms: The 4th Detonator‘s theme song by Kaori Aso (I Look Up at the Sky Because You are There).
Yay for Nana-san! Yay for Tales of Symphonia! XDD
*sighs* Half an hour of happiness is over… Back to working, studying, and wanting to cry… XP
HERE COMES THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
LIVE ACADEMY 2010!
February 14 – Fukuoka-ken – Fukuoka Kokusai Main Hall
February 20 – Ehime-ken – Niihama Shimibunka Centre Dai-Hall
March 7 – Miyagi-ken – Sendai Sunplaza Hall
March 13 & 14 – Yokohama -Yokohama Arena
March 20 – Osaka – Osaka-jou Hall
March 27 – Aichi – Nihon Gaishi Hall
Nana-san will be standing on the exact same stage as when she was a child on February 20! XDDD
…And from what Nana-san said about the making of the MUGEN MV (it’s an MV not PV anymore XD), there’s no doubt King Records threw in a lot of money for it… Still… Nana-san, no matter how you try to defend the style of the song and MV, I still can’t see how the two relate. XP
We have all seen the 夢幻 PV, right? Just in case…
Higher quality version can be found on NicoNico here
Except… Someone explain to me the meaning behind the PV… -__-;; How’d it turn into that?
Anyway, moving on…
Melody of a Memory – 映画 レイトン教授と永遠の歌姫 オリジナルテーマ曲集
Melody of a Memory – Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva Original Theme Song Collection
To be released on December 16, 2009.
^Those who want to hear Nana-san sing opera and cannot wait until the Professor Layton movie to come out onto DVD/Blu-ray can choose to order this CD (unless you live in Japan, then you can watch the movie in theatres instead of waiting it to be released onto DVD/Blu-ray):
Not sure if i’ll be getting this… Live Diamond & Fever will surely leave me without money to spare in December. ;_;
And… Nana-san’s most recent blog post (October 3, 2009).
For some strange reason, seeing Nana-san so hyped up and excited over the Nanoha series makes me grin. Apparently, it’s a very important series to her – which many can guess because she made several references in her audio commentaries in her Live DVD/Blu-rays.
Completely random (and you’d have to be a MSLN fan to understand this) but I found it especially cute when she wrote: なのはと名前が呼べるまで、精一杯演じてきたいと思いますっ！！！
