In which Isilie Reviews 2009~Favourites~

img20080320165552686 So 2009 is coming to a close, eh? I realize it’s not technically over, but there are times when I’m not very patient.

I’ve decided that being lame is ok for a moment and am therefore ready to spring this end-of-the-year post on ya. I think that 2009 was an interesting year, plus this will give me a chance to comment on things I didn’t formally write about for whatever reason. I might repeat words a lot, like ‘beautiful’, because I’m writing mostly about what I liked and that makes me excited and unable to think of more creative adjectives.

I begin with this shot of (arguably) the three most adorable of the Musumes. Mame and Mitsui should be in there too, but we can’t always get what we want, can we? Linlin has the most wonderful smile. In case you can’t tell, they are making a strawberry shortcake. In mid-air. Which is apparently hilarious.

Hey, whatever. Since when has any photo set made sense? I love this one, personally, but I’m not sure why they don’t just use a table.

Man, cute pics are distracting.

Pic Spam: Ehhh??

Sometimes you have to be grateful that fandom is so  loyal in Japan that when we get concert photos, we get photos of every possible moment – even the ones that make you cringe for the girls. Even the most gorgeous of the H!P girls have their days. I like what that says about this particular fandom. The girls are so loved that we love them just as much when they look ridiculous as when they look great.

So much of this picspam will be devoted to such moments. I always hesitate to stick to a theme, but most of these pics are those delightful moments where I just think, “Eh??”

This first photo though is merely adorable Linlin sleeping. I wish I could sleep in that position. I’m not sure I’d be half that cute though. Those three are dangerously cute, ne?

As for some of these other ones…
I honestly can’t believe some of these.

Gush~Gush~~Why I Love Yossy.


I’ve decided that I need to devote some time on this blog to mindless-yet-delightful gushing about the woman who made me love Momusu in the first place: Yoshizawa Hitomi.

Yossy. Yocchan. Yoshimi. Pimp of all. Riida. Ishikawa’s “dah-ring”. Michishige’s Prince Charming.

Mr FRIGGIN Moonlight.

I love this woman.

But that is nothing new. If you’re new to this blog, it might be. If you’ve read this blog for a bit, it’s a Legolas statement (ie. incredibly obvious… An example from The Two Towers “this forest is old…very old.”).

I think I will probably need to restrain myself from overloading you with a simple picspam, cause goodness knows there are too many good shots of her. I’ll try to actually write something coherent beneath all the inevitable keyboard-mashery that ensues when I see pics of her.

I promise nothing.
