lol Ito Christine
some people say that it's just Ito Yuna and Sony playing with some stuff

but now im confused, they must be identical twins since Christine seems to be a party animal compared to the more calm Yuna.....or maybe it's actually Yuna in party mode.......

dammit...

Ah, I mean to comment on that video for Christine Ito more but I forgot to come back to edit. Oh well. She looks like she's having fun. It's the most relaxed I've seen her. And her vocals ... wow. At least I don't think she was lip syncing ...

It was funny when the DJ asked if she had an album coming out and she was like "um ..."
and than later she was saying she wasn't there for promotional purposes. Haha.

And good news! The PV for Trust You is suppose to air on Monday. I admit I was iffy about the song the first time I heard it. The beat just sound weird. But when I read the lyrics and listen to the preview more, the more I like it.

I hope the full version doesn't disappoint.

Hmmn I was trying to see if the PV for Trust You had leaked out yet. No success, but I did run into this vids

I'm not sure which show is this, but it quite old since Yuna says she's 23 in the interview. I wish I could understand more of the convo/interwiew.She singes Endless Story near the last 4-5mins. Though I think she hadn't done a lot of lives yet, so this is one of her weaker live performances.

Same show, different appearance. In this one she sings My Heart Will Go On. I like this one more than the first one. Even though I don't fully understand the interview/convos, I got a bit out of it. There's a part where the questionnaire asks about proposals. I don't dare say that the exact question was, but Yuna explained what she thought of as a romantic proposal and she spoke about how in North America (though I think this is European as well ...) how it was common for the guy to go down on one knee and proposed. One of the male hosts mirrored her actions and her reaction was adorable. It got funnier as the other male hosts in the show started to follow suit XD And then towards the end, they (two of the male hosts) mimicked the iconic scene in Titanic ... I couldn't stop laughing. Her performance of My Heart Will Go on started off slow, but I think it was due to the arrangement but she grew stronger as the performance went on.

For those whom still haven't seen Yuna on the Arashi TV show, here it is in full streaming

Yay! FINALLY the PV is actually being shared XD

http://randomc.animeblogger.net/2009/02/18/itou-yuna-trust-you-pv-gundam-00-second-season-ed2/

I could just link to the Yahoo site but I thought I might as well throw in the blogger's thoughts.

Yuna definitely looks pretty in the PV. Though I thought Precious was a better executed PV. The full song isn't as bad as I thought it'd be so I'm not disappointed. It's still a beautiful song, albeit a bit draggy after a few listens. I find the TV size (the version used for Gundam 00) is more powerful.

I love the new song ^_^ I think it's great. Yuna's vocals are beautiful <3 and of course she's gorgeous in the PV Giggle The only think that lacks is the cover Embarassed

Anyhow thanks for all those links I enjoyed watching everything. I really enjoyed that show she was on where she performed My Heart will go on, I thought that was a great cover of the song btw.

^Yea I felt she did a great job of covering the song. It was also on Japan Sony's Tribute to Celine Dion album.

Another promo pic for Trust You


An interview with Yuna from Excite
http://www.excite.co.jp/music/close_up/0902_itoyuna?c=interview

The single has leaked. I'm enjoying the Trust You song in full more and more, though I still think the TV size (the Gundam 00 version) is more powerful.

Brand New World is very upbeat. I'm hearing mixed reactions to the song on other forums. I'm not sure how I truly feel about it yet as I'm listening to it the second time now. It's not bad, but nothing epic I guess. I don't mind it but I like her other b-sides from Miss You and Koi wa Groovy x2 more ...

I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but I still want her to release Gate and Love Machine Gun. If she released both those songs on the same single, her sales will definitely be up.

Speaking of which, Trust You is currently ranking at number 7 based on pre-sales. Not bad, better than the numbers for Koi wa Groovy

Hmm. looks like Yuna did a live performance for a Japanese magazine at either a mall or a convention center. Here's the article:
http://news.livedoor.com/article/detail/4047750/

Here's some photos from the article (there's more in the article/livedoor site)


I've heard that she's ranked as high as #5 on the charts for the Trust You single. I'm happy to hear that since Gundam is such a huge tie in and Trust You is a considerably good song. Had she not had the tie-in, I don't think she'd be ranked as high. It'd be since to see one of her singles go that high without a major tie-in.

Oh and in her blog she mentioned she's done an answer song for "Ima Demo Zutto" so the assumption is that it'll be Yuna Ito f/ Spontania instead of the other way around. Some are speculating it'll be her next single. *sighs* I want GATE!!

Looks like the ringtone is selling pretty well. It hit number 7 the day it was released.

Promo pictures up ahead


And the cover (though I personally prefer the first promo picture to be the cover ...)


I got the pictures from this site (and there's a few other pictures on there as well)
http://natalie.mu/gallery/show/news_id/14613/image_id/9922

Not sure if this will only see a digital release or a physical release but it's gotta bee sometime in April or early May if they'll release it before the album.

Curious to hear what this answer song sounds like. Haven't even heard of a preview yet.

Wonder if she's going to stick to a one word title for the album like she has for the last two albums. First it was HEART, then WISH ... could the third album be DREAM? (LOL ... just kidding XD)

So I heard rumors that the 3rd album will be named DREAM (I still can't find any official confirmation on this yet though). If it is true, I will definitely have a good laugh XD

.... oh wait, just checked Yuna's blog
http://playlog.jp/yuna/blog/
O_____O It's true!!

OMG *falls over and dies a thousand deaths laughing* ... hahaha did I call it or what???

Yuna's 3rd album DREAM will be out May 27th

I hear Love Machine Gun and Gate will be on the album. Definitely getting it along with Maaya's first live DVD.

Yuna performances in Hong Kong has went well, there's a lot of fan cam videos on youtube. I'll have to find time to track those down again.

But for the time being, Dream will soon be released and the track list and covers have been out for some time.

CD Only


CD+DVD
]

Track list
1 love you/(00:04:01)
2 今でも 会いたいよ/(00:03:46)
3 Brand New World/(00:04:28)
4 恋はgroovy2/(00:03:34)
5 trust you/(00:05:18)
6 BAILA BAILA/(00:03:25)
7 BREEEEEZIN!!!!!!!/(00:03:50)
8 miss you/(00:05:03)
9 LOVE MACHINE GUN/(00:04:45)
10 No one else/(00:03:59)
11 Body/(00:10:05)

(groovyx2 is going to be a secret track, that's why Body is so long)

-_______________-

Still NO GATE!!!!!!
I was so angry when I saw this track list. Granted they finally are going to release Love Machine Gun. But if they had put Gate and I would have ordered this album right away. I'm going to wait till the album is out before I decide if I want to get it or not. I kind of want to boycott Sony Music out of spite XD Oh yea I'm also pissed off they decided to put Brand New World on there instead of Mafuyu no Seiza.

TVB broadcast....I HAVE NO CLUE WHY THERE ARE DANCERS FOR A BALLAD.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsD2WwtRn_4

Record of the APM shopping center performing Endless Story
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCKQQvTnONk&feature=related

The album is released, my impressions

love you - upbeat jazz, not very used to it after hearing trust you so many times. Sounds repetitive for some reason =(

今でも 会いたいよ - the 2nd part of the Spontania collaboration. I think I like the 1st part better, this sounds like some remixed version of part 1, even the lyrics are different, the chorus remains similar. Decent song.

Brand New World - ohhhh great a B-side. I actually like this song from the single though. So nothing to rant about except about why it ended up in the album -_-

恋はgroovy2 - one of my favourite songs from her. Although I'm no shopaholic, but I can really picture this being in a commercial for GAP, would be really excited to see this CM be in Canada =D It's a good CM / PV, good song...(and never liked GAP's clothing designs...)

trust you - great ballad...but I found it exceptionally friggin long and repetitive on the last minute of the track.

BAILA BAILA - OHHHH SOUNDS HAWAIIAN! If only she does another collaboration with Micro....

BREEEEEZIN!!!!!!! - more hawaiian music...oh wait not anymore....mixed opinion, its good...but I think it sounds better if her friend Nana Tanimura sang this =D Holy crap...I just realized this belonged to the B-Side of the Miss You single.......wait a minute......

miss you - ...........LOLWUT? 5 songs from singles already? YO WTF!?

LOVE MACHINE GUN - 5 Stars for this song, very MiChi like too.

No one else - too lazy to go to deep explanations, i like it =D

Body - a 10 minute song...beginning sounds Hikki-ish...wait...why did the song end at 4:20......OH SNAP I SHAT BRICKS AT 5:21 WITH THAT HUGE BASS BLAST. groovy2 being played...sounds like an English version of the 恋はgroovy2....well im done =D
