I will apologize in advance if this post does not make sense. I am severely lacking sleep, I should still be working, but my brain is refusing to crank out any more useful sentences and ideas where I need them.

Nana-san has been saying that she has been wondering what she can do to help out Japan right now. After speaking with a sponsor (Dwango), she has decided to do a charity program with her best friend, Agematsu Mika through NicoVideo.
It will take place 20:30 on March 27, 2011 in Japan time.
All donations will be going to the Japan Red Cross.
I’m half-thinking I won’t join in, if just to leave a space for someone who would donate a lot more through this.
On another note, POP MASTER PV recording and release will be delayed (source: Mizuki Nana blog post on March 23rd). Taking into consideration the amount of electricity that will be required to shooting this PV, Team Mizuki have decided to put it on hold.
But SCARLET KNIGHT does not seem to be affected as recording is already done. Some pictures here and here. Credits go to cc1926 for the heads up. :3
I guess now I’m expecting photos of Nana in sister clothes? XD
When was the last time I made 2 posts in the same day? :O
Smile-Gang takes on a slightly different format this week. Somewhat FM-esque, in the words of Nana-san. This is because Smile-Gang was canceled on certain radio stations last week, so many people were not able to listen to SCARLET KNIGHT. Thus, they take the first half to re-introduce SCARLET KNIGHT to those who haven’t heard it yet.
Smile-Gang 468 – Production Process of SCARLET KNIGHT and POP MASTER
POP MASTER just aired on Smile-Gang.
SUPER GENERATION-vibes! As expected? XD
I swear I was grinning to myself the entire time the song was playing.
More on Smile-Gang later because I missed the majority of it except for the song. ^^;;

There was something very sobering with the way Nana-san was speaking at the very beginning of World of M this week. The only thing we can do is to support Japan in any way we can.
Mizuki Nana M no Sekai – #88
Considering the current situation in Japan, I do not foresee Smile-Gang 467 on NicoVideo anytime soon. Everyone in Japan is doing their part in conserving energy and trying their best to overcome this crisis.
While I am still worried about the nation, in my attempt to keep some positive atmosphere up, let me talk about SCARLET KNIGHT.
Despite no Smile-Gang at the usual source, I did manage to listen to Smile-Gang on Osaka Radio in real-time (i.e. as it was aired on the radio).
Or most of it, at least. I missed the first 10 or so minutes (and Smile-Gang isn’t a very long broadcast) because I was messing around with the tuning.
Because I had to listen to it in full AM radio glory — with the annoying static sounds, I couldn’t get a clear impression of SCARLET KNIGHT.
Fortunately for most of us, the excerpt of the song has been posted here.
Briefly, this is what Nana-san said about the song.

^Go straight to 23:52. It’s self-explanatory. XDD
Sounded more like some magic incantation to me. ^^;; Nana-san admits that it came out like alien language. XDD Officially (or as official as some nonsense made up and recognized by high school students only), it’s called “babi code.”
What I think it should’ve sounded like is this:
Because the original sentence is: Mizuki Nana kore kara mo zenryoku zenkai de ikimasu!
Now on to Smile-Gang…
