I know some of you kinda judge me from the previous post. But that's ok. Everyone has their own opinions. Don't get me wrong though. How the goods came about, I still don't see the relation with the theme. But I was not saying that the goods were horrible. In fact, they are decent-looking. They achieved the "adult and clean" look that they want. At least they dont have crazy designs.
It's just that my point of view in the previous post was purely on a designer's point of view.

Photobucket Thankfully the uchiwas are by far the most good-looking ones ever! Photobucket
This will only means that the pamphlet will be superb! *scans come quick*
Btw the hat pin is really huge! O.o For your information, this hatpin idea comes from Disneyland hat pin idea. HERE
Ring is apparently huge too, fans said it fits yakuza guys better.
The strap looks much better like this! Doesn't look cheap anymore XD

So Yamapi had golden curls? Will try to look for this proof! I have found slightly clearer photosets but shall only update with Shige's for now XD
When I read over at Nana's saying that Shige's hairstyle has changed, only one thing comes to mind...I need proof so...here it is!



I'm happy (^^)v

Updated Concert Songlist with solo titles

Songlist seems short

The songlist seems short and a bit surprising to me. But I think it is because their album is not yet released. My guess is that the songlist will change once the album is out. Change would mean, solo/duets will remain but more medley will be included ;)

Up next, the things I hope to see soon are panfu scans, concert reports, hopefully mp3 of the solos! =D
I have come across 1 MC report so far. Seems like the topic revolves around Massu & TakkiTsuba. For sure the talk will be about Massu na~ since we know Massu always crash TakkiTsuba's date XD
If I can find a few more reports, I will either edit this post or make a new one later.

Be right back after dinner! ;)

oh, I do like ^________^(thr hair XD)Specially in the last picture^^

I'm shocked and at the same happy for the song list. WHY !!! I still can't believe they put that song in a concert, it might be my NEWS fave song or close to that xDDD (I even had it as cell ringtone XDD .. now I have LIPS xDDD)

THe uchiwas look REALLY good. Specially Shige/kei ones. I'm impressed because normally all of them (or any other je boy) looks ugly on them xDDD

And the ring still look cheap, even in photo xDDDDD

YES! When I saw the centrepart Shige pix, I was "Ok~" But when I saw these.. (♥3♥) -> my reaction LOL

Me too. The songlist has too many old songs really makes it seems like a short concert. And aiaigasa, did NEWS sang that? Hmm~ LOL@ Why. Well..I can't even decide which is my fave song. Im glad they still include Iza Na Izu Ki XDD

My fave uchiwa is ShigeMassu <333333 True most of the time, some member will look weird in uchiwas but not this time ;)

It still does. Btw added one more pic. Strap looks better now.

OMG, that hairstyle of Shige is so nice <333
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:11 pm (UTC)
Yes...he looks good! Yay for no centre-parting XDD
Shades of Purpleoystersauce87 on October 25th, 2008 01:30 pm (UTC)
But there are some shop photos with the centre parting, right?
I think that hair will be in the pamphlet too. lol
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:48 pm (UTC)
Yes there are. And I also think the pamphlet will be the old hair. Oh well~ Unless we are lucky, then we will get this new hair xD

Eee, I'm really happy to see how good everyone looks on their Uchiwas XD XD

It's nice to have an influx of NEWS news again!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:21 pm (UTC)
They really do!
Ah yes~ influx of NEWS news once again =D

Massu's solo song title reminds me of Kusano-man. Does he derived the idea from there? XDD
Hanakojerehannah on October 25th, 2008 01:23 pm (UTC)
arh wid! Thanks for posting up the pictures of the con goods! so nice! n shige photos! kakkoii!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:29 pm (UTC)
You are welcome~ I am happy that he changed the blonde centre-parting to this <333

I was really surprised to see the hat pin that big too. I thought it would be a tiny pin and even had the idea of using it for Monopoly instead of the boring silver hat game piece. :P But this hat hair pin reminds me of this Taiwanese singer who sings children songs. XD Jacky Wu always teases her about her hat shrinking like this hat hair pin. XDDD

I'm so glad to see I.ZA.NA.I.ZU.KI on the updated set list! One of my fav songs! I was a lil disappointed when I didn't see it.

And though the ring is huge and looks kinda cheap, the bag that comes with it is sooooo cute! I may just buy it for the lil bag. XD
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:42 pm (UTC)
Exactly! and LOL at your monopoly comment! I was thinking of using it....well..for normal pin purposes. But now it seems too huge for those XD
I know Jacky Wu but not sure who this lady singer is haha~

Same! I wonder where the news_jpop setlist is from. So far the japanese blogs/mixi are as above ^^;

I agree! The bag looks pretty! If only the ring could have been better...than perfectness! XD

Jessicaj_halo7 on October 25th, 2008 02:13 pm (UTC)
Here's a pic of her. I just remembered her name! Shui Mi Tai Jie Jie. XD For some very very weird reason, there was 1 picture of Yamapi when I searched her name! :P


I wonder what we can use the hat hairpin for now. I honestly will not be caught dead wearing that in real life. D:
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
OK her hat is cute! XDD
NEWS Hat Pin is too small to be used on the head like she does. And too big for any pin purposes XDD
Jessicaj_halo7 on October 25th, 2008 02:45 pm (UTC)
I guess I can keep it first and few years down the road when my yet to be born niece is about 3-4 years old, I use it on her. XD

I seriously wonder what went through their head when they decided on this hat hairpin. I think people will get more milegae out of it if it's a tiny pin. :P
calpis37calpis37 on October 25th, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
omg I really want the strap!!!♥

thanks for sharing!
w_ryokuw_ryoku on October 25th, 2008 01:43 pm (UTC)
Indeed, the real thing looks way much better <3
evil_zaievil_zai on October 25th, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
not a news fan but the strap looks cute.
looking forward to ryo's solo. :)

and LOL i soo don't want to imagine what yamashita looks like with golden permed hair. /dead
heppysnowy_yuki on October 25th, 2008 03:06 pm (UTC)
let me spazz over IM okay..
GO ONLINE FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the song list is making me happy!!!!
diannenichiya on October 25th, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
shige's new hair looks very nice!! finally back to dark hair <33

OMG, why and bambina!! i'm craving for dvd already! i hope they will still sing those 2 songs when the album is out!

i still say no to strap LOL
::Fairy:: I want to be your sound~ ♥fairy_illusions on October 25th, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC)
Wid-chan, catch me! [faints as a result of overdose on cute Shige pics]

His smile...it's making me swoon. rawr. I wish I could hate Shige for making me this way lol :P

I'd like to see Masupa-man versus Kusanoman too XD It'd be an interesting battle since Massu and Kusano have been at it since the beginning of NEWS (fighting for the title of strongest) :P

KOYAMPI DUET! KOYAMAPI DUET! KOYAMAPI DUET!!! I will not stop flailing over that until by some act of fate, there is RyoShige duets. I'd die. Seriously Johnny needs to consider putting the two on their guitars and singing a duet together! asdfh;sdlfh <--incoherent key smash XD

Somehow, Shige's solo sounds like mellow, relaxing kind of song. Something you'd hear at like...on a beach during sunsets in the summer?

Last thing. I want that Yakuza ringggg >< You know, I thought the hat pin was a hat...lol And Shige's pictures...dsdkghsk SO THIS IS HOW WE GET MILKED OF OUR MONEY! Evil I tell you. evil.

Ok, I'm done spazzing. :D
vtsoccagrlvtsoccagrl on October 25th, 2008 06:43 pm (UTC)
Shige's new hair is 100x better than his old hair YESSS. And KoyamaPi duet *_*. And Takki *____* And Bambina & Why *______*
