JKT48 at Lampion 100% Cinta (2012.02.22)

This performance is a little bit… different?

I suppose it’s in a good way!

We Indonesians LOVE live music ( or maybe it’s just me? ) and this time they’re performing with a live band as their backing music ( not the usual vocal-less studio recording ) – honestly I love this style, but unfortunately the cameraman doesn’t seem to understand that when you’re shooting an idol group, you should focus on THE IDOL GROUP e.g. each individual member.

Who the heck cares about the ppl playing instruments in the background?
They’re NOT the MAIN performer here. I’m so disappointed but at least not towards JKT48 itself.

Global TV ( and other TV studios that are going to broadcast JKT48’s future performances ) – PLEASE take notice of this.

Well, without further ado, enjoy the recordings! And post what you think about it in the comments section ^_^

Nishino Kana – SAKURA, I Love You?

Kana’s 17th single due for release on the 7th of March 2012 – similar to her Tatoe Donna Ni… lyrics, apparently this single will also tell a story of an ex-girlfriend that still has feelings towards her ex-boyfriend.

Well… I have to say that the topic is slowly getting old, but hopefully the melody of the song can make up for it. After all, it’s these kinds of songs that sells really well in Japan.

Update: Now that I’ve listen to the song preview… uh, I’m not really sure it’s going to do well if the rest of the song is about the same or worse melody-wise. Is just not as catchy as, say, her Distance, or her last Alright.

If you like this single, please support Kana-chan by buying Sakura I love you – Normal Version or the Sakura I love you – Single + DVD Version!
