Smile-Gang #533 & 534 – BRIGHT STREAM preview in 534

3 posts in 3 days! When was the last time that happened? And Smile-Gang update on the day it aired too (533 was from last week, 534 is today). You may or may not see the connection, but the speed of this update is more or less motivated by the Nanoha series. =3

Also, be warned that this post is rather long. It doesn’t yet compare to some of the even longer posts I’ve written, but it’s certainly longer than what I’ve posted recently. 😄

Lyrical Nanoha Movie 2nd A’s – Full trailer w/ Bright Stream

^Am I the only one who felt a sudden surge of emotions when watching this trailer? Especially when Nanoha yelled “It’s not the end! I won’t let it end yet!”
I feel like this trailer packed all the desperate feelings of the characters together to create something that pulled at various emotions (especially for those who knows what happened in the A’s series).

Also, Bright Stream is previewed here. I certainly understand why Nana described the song as “aggressive, full of strength, yet sad.” I only caught bits of the lyrics here and there (when there is no screaming and shouting XD), but from what I can hear, it is already fitting to the A’s storyline. I’m also getting PHANTOM MINDS-vibe from BRIGHT STREAM, which makes it an even more fitting opening for this movie. I believe Smile-Gang is going the preview the song tomorrow, but don’t take my word for it… We’ll see.

World of M #150 – Guest: Watanabe Itaru, Ohira Tsutomu

水樹奈々のMの世界 #150 (2012,06,16) ゲスト:渡辺格・大平勉

Feels like it’s been a long time since I last made a post on World of M. I generally don’t nowadays unless a guest is involved, and even then, it can get selective. But I thought this week’s World of M deserves a post. After all, it’s Watanabe Itaru and Ohira Tsutomu, the guitarist and keyboardist of the Cherry Boys, on M no Sekai.

Even if you don’t particularly care about Nana’s back band for whatever reason (you should, because these guys are quite famous individually), Itaruvich does an guitar acoustic version of Romancer’s Neo here.

Smile-Gang #532 – Funny CMs corner

The Euro Cup is distracting. Lol. I still haven’t gotten around to actually sitting through Live Castle -King-. Although I must say, in the hour that I’ve watched it last week, I think I like it better than -Queen- already. But full thoughts when I finish watching the entire thing.
Anyway, the usual weekly update… There’s more than just Smile-Gang to listen to this week, but one at a time… ^^;;

水樹奈々 スマイルギャング 第532回

Smile-Gang 532 starts off with Misato and Nana talking about the casing of TIME SPACE EP. It follows the same style as her 17th single – Starcamp EP because of its… 17th and 27th. See the connection? XDD;;

Smile-Gang #531 and Shin Domoto Kyoudai

水樹奈々 スマイルギャング 第531回

^Smile-Gang 531 is loaded with hilarity and interesting facts. It’s well worth the listen, because the Misato Channel is something that I can’t describe. You’ll know why when you get there.

Nana also talks about her appearance on Shin Domoto Kyoudai in the Head Nanau corner. I just finished watching it and… Haha. It really is as she described. XDD I guess I’ll be talking about both (what she said on Smile-Gang and what actually transpired) at the same time.

Smile-Gang #530

水樹奈々 スマイルギャング 第530回

Smile-Gang 530 begins with Misato asking if Nana has been to the newly opened Tokyo Sky Tree yet. The answer is no, because she’s waiting for the hype to die down a bit before visiting. That’s understandable as there’s a lot of people (tourists and Japanese citizens alike) going to the Sky Tree. Misato agrees with Nana’s logic because she also doesn’t want to go when knowing that the place is extremely busy.
