Knowing NHK, this will probably get taken down before people can even watch it… But here:
HAHAHA. Mishi-P said, “Before we start, we have something to tell you.” And he was so solemn, it was as if he was going to deliver bad news. XDDD
Yes, we all saw her cry… But what we didn’t see (and was later revealed in Smile-Gang 400) was that Nana-san cried very hard afterwards. In the “WAAAAAAH!” type of way. She said she hasn’t cried like that for a looong time.
They even recorded bits of when she called her mother. 😄 Apparently, Nana-san’s mother already knew about it on television and was extremely excited over the phone. Understandable, right?
It’s been over a week since the news was released, but I’ll keep saying it over and over again.
CONGRATULATIONS NANA-SAN! 😀
Because I’m sure we’ve all been waiting to hear an uninterrupted version of Nana-san’s opera singing.
Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva – Music Library
Chapter 4 on the sidebar (on the right) is the opera song. Chapter 2 and 3 are also songs sung by Nana-san (as the character Jenice Caitlain – so the opera feel is there as well).
For those of you who have problems loading up the official website, here’s the NicoNico version with all 3 songs together:
…Once again, Nana-san’s talents know no bounds. :3
Extremely short preview, not enough to get a good impression. But it’s better than nothing. ;D [random]Yeah, the Nanoha series is awesome. :3[/random]
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s Episode 8 CM – Silent Bible at 00:46
And then there’s approximately 5 seconds of PHANTOM MINDS here (thanks raizoo).
…But…uh… I was actually more swept away by JAM Project’s:
You can fly! (Yeah!) We can fly! (Yeah!) MOTTO MOTTO!
SKILL is a really cool song in my opinion.
EDIT: (again, thanks to raizoo)
^Spread of Cross (Opening version).
Why in the world does the close-up in-game shot of the main character in Shining Force Cross look even more like Sora from Kingdom Hearts???
And I continue to spam with more Mizuki Nana-related Kouhaku stuff!
First… Here’s my translation of Nana-san’s blog post on November 23rd
November 23rd – Blog post translation – The Dream I Saw that Day
Translation of what Nana-san said:
Nana: Since very young, I have always loved to sing. My parents had set up a small school (classroom) for people to learn how to sing, and actually, at that time, I sang enka. Kohaku had always been a show where my family would gather and watch together every year. To me, Kohaku is my dream stage and ultimate goal. To be able to stand there, I feel very happy. I will give it my all and give a powerful performance.
Again, congratulations to Nana-san!
I still laugh whenever she says the phrase 全力全開 (zenryoku zenkai)! It’s not a Nanoha-series specific phrase (even though that is usually what MSLN fans immediately think of), but I have to wonder… Did she use that phrase as often BEFORE coming into contact with the Lyrical Nanoha series or was she influenced by Nanoha? XDD
Need to run to do a bit of work, but will be back to dig up more info later!
Currently at school so I’ll put a link to the YouTube video (one sentence mention only but that’s more than enough :D) and screencap the singers’ list for the Red Team when I get home (which won’t be until another 6 to 7 hours… OTL)
But yes, NANA-SAN IS APPEARING ON KOHAKU THIS YEAR!!! 😀
…And yes, it is also posted on ANN but details are sketchy in my opinion.
CONGRATULATIONS NANA-SAN!!! \(^0^)/
And thanks to raizoo and lavendettadulce for the notification. 😀
With regards to the blog entry Nana-san made yesterday… WHOA!? You mean to tell me she COSPLAYED as Fate (and Ogata Rina) at the S.C. NANA NET FC EVENT!?!?!?!
GIVE ME THE DVD WITH THE NEXT ALBUM PLEASE!
As speculated, the major announcement was about her 22nd single. Other than that, nothing big happened on Smile-Gang this week. She spoke about Producer Mishima’s wedding (about who he married, how Nana-san hopes that he and his wife will lead a life of happiness because she owes them both a lot, and stuff like that). Of course, she sang at his wedding. 😄
The official website has updated with more information with regards to her next two singles.
Song list so far for the 21st & 22nd single
Thanks to an
anonymous commenter raizoo for the heads up!
Anyway, this is SERIOUSLY NEWS!
And yeah, this is very likely to be the “major announcement” Nana-san is to talk about on the next Smile-Gang.
To be released on February 10, 2010!
^Links to the Super Robo Taisen OG website
A total of 4 songs will be on the single.
1. Silent Bible (Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha The Battle of ACES opening Theme)
2. UNCHAIN∞WORLD (Mugen no Frontier Super Robo Taisen OG opening Theme)
What is up with this rate of singles release?
Not that I’m complaining. 😄 …Except my wallet is… ;_;
But anyway, YAY FOR NANA-SAN WRITING THE LYRICS TO SILENT BIBLE!!! 😀
水樹奈々のＭの世界 #021 （2009,11,20） ゲスト：HIMEKA
I’ll be honest. I did not know about HIMEKA until MUSIC JAPAN ANISON SP1.
Yes, I fail as a Canadian. XDD But ever since listening to her live on MJSP1, I’ve started to pay a bit more attention.
Anyway, she was guest on this week’s Mizuki Nana World of M. For those who don’t know (did not watch MJSP1), HIMEKA is a huge Mizuki Nana fan. Nana-san revealed that they first met at the recording of MJSP1, and HIMEKA had come up to her, crying, and asked for her autograph (and she was holding a copy of ULTIMATE DIAMOND). XDD;;
And apparently, Nana-san and HIMEKA share many things in common…
I’m not too sure when MJ Anison Special 2 will air, but here are some photos to tie fans over until the air date. 😀
