Brief revival of Chisato? XD [Smile-Gang, Mizuki Nana]

Before I go into the most recent Smile-Gang… Just a warning that there is a possibility that I won’t be updating this blog for the next 3 weeks or so…
I will be posting sporadically on LJ (about randomness that has NOTHING to do with what I normally update here with) though, if I manage to get access. :3

Anyway…

No MUSEUM II announcement last week, but we get details this week.
It was a very sudden decision (as we already know), something that occurred around the time of the Animelo Summer Live.

To listen or not listen: Anisong Legends vs Staff XD [Smile-Gang]

水樹奈々 スマイルギャング第492回【ネット音源】

Nana can be such a kid sometimes. 😄
I think most know by now that Nana did a collaboration with JAM Project for SKILL (You can fly! Yeah! We can fly! Yeah! MOTTO MOTTO!) on the first day of Animelo Summer Live. Nana was supposed to be a secret guest (as her main performance is on the second day)… Hence she was not supposed to be seen by the audience no matter what. But she wasn’t the only special guest present. Mizuki Ichirou and Sasaki Isao were there as well. She really wanted to hear their songs, so she ran out to the audience area when they were on stage… only to get yelled at by the staff.
Staff: CHOTTO!!! D< People will see you!
Mizuki: It's Galaxy Express 999 opening song!! I HAVE to listen to it!

Fortunately for her, she managed to hear the performances somehow. 😄 She absolutely refused to miss it. Hahaha!

Totally unrelated, but the “normal” version of Live Grace DVD/BD CM makes me excited. Especially because they used Tenkuu no Canaria -orchestra ver.- as the BGM.
The Fukuen Misato version made me burst out laughing. XDD

Whatever happened to THE MUSEUM II announcement? I was expecting that she’d announce it here again on Smile-Gang, but I guess not… Not that it matters, because it is coming and we’re paying again.

And so, our wallets continue to bleed silently.

World of M #101 – Guest: Nakamura Yuuichi (中村 悠一)

水樹奈々のMの世界 #110 (2011,08,27) ゲスト:中村悠一

Haha, I can’t say I’m too surprised Nakamura was called to be guest. Especially after the episode with Sugita back in May. 😄

For those who don’t know Nakamura Yuuichi (中村 悠一 — not to be mistaken with the actor with the same romanization 中村 優一), he is a seiyuu under the same firm as Nana-san, Sigma Seven. For those Mizuki Nana fans who watch every single anime she ever appears in, you will probably recognize Nakamura as Vice (from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS) and Tsukiyomi Ikuto (From Shugo Chara).

From the more recent hit anime, he is also Graham Aker (Gundam 00 — if you could consider that recent XD), Saotome Alto (Macross Frontier), Hodr (Break Blade) and… If you’ve already listened to World of M, Kousaka Kyousuke (Oreimo). The background music when Nakamura was making his “introduction” is the opening for Oreimo and the “character” he is speaking as is Kyousuke. Oreimo is a hilarious and overall very enjoyable anime for those of you who haven’t watched it yet.
