Juke Box extra - Tour unit creation

I can't translate everything but [livejournal.com profile] essie07 has done a nice summary of what went on there over at [livejournal.com profile] naniwa_ Check it out if you, like I did, had a troublesome time making out exact dialogue - or, if you had trouble understanding any of it ^^


The others had fiiinally (after a really long-winded process) been split into two teams - A (Ryo, Maru, Hina) and B (Yoko, Yasu, Tacchon). Baru is the last one left.

Ye-ah. My wallpaper muse wandered away again. Or rather, I ran out of inspiring and usable scans. :( Someone point me to a good source!
Anyway I decided to throw out whatever I've done today - since it's MatsuJun's birthday and I have a few Jun pieces :D

Most are 1440x900, with a few versions in 1280x1024. Lockscreen wallpapers (optimised for iPhone ^^) are at the end.

This post contains pieces featuring: Matsumoto Jun, Kanjani8, Nishikido Ryo, Ohkura Tadayoshi, Ohno Satoshi, Sakamoto Masayuki and Yokoyama You. A happy birthday to MatsuJun~!

Haven't done these sort-of-translations for a while... 8Da Let's hope I got this one mostly right. hahah

This was from Janiben on 7 August 2013. (I was downloading a few random episodes trying to locate some amusing instances I saw on Tumblr... but none I downloaded were the right ones. Grrrr. Whyyyy can't people get into the habit of just inserting the episode date when they post stuff on Tumblr? It's so annoying and frustrating when I can't locate it. )

choices
The question is... something like "When travelling abroad, which of the following do you factor into your budget?" Something like that?
Options are:
A. Better hotel
B. Flight class - economy/business class
C. Stretch the length of the trip as much as you can
D. Yummy food!

("D" is the easiest to understand and translate XD )
And you can see who chose what from the screencap above.

The choices are supposed to reflect their approaches to marriage...

I hope I'm not gonna burn out soon like I did last year (regarding wallpaper designs, that is)... but for now, I'm still kinda on a roll! 8D

Am also trying something new: smartphone lockscreen wallpapers. But first! Let's get the regular desktop wallpapers out of the way...

Contents: Kanjani8, K8 combi (Tacchon, Ryo, Yasu), Yokoyama You, Nishikido Ryo, Shibutani Subaru, V6, Okada Junichi

Wallpapers! )


Lockscreen (for iPhone)
So I adapted some of my wallpaper designs to an iPhone lockscreen format. I don't know whether there's a real "demand" for this or not. If there is, I may start creating separate designs for this format (because it's vertical and narrower, or even square - based on how the iPhone places the clock and slider on the lock screen).... or make an extra version of my regular wallpapers (if I feel the design fits the format). So, tell me what you think?

Beneath the cut, you will find lockscreen designs for: Arashi, K8, Maru, Tacchon, Ryo, Yoko, V6, Miyake Ken, Tonisen, Kamisen, Mabo, Ikuta Toma

Ooh, lockscreen wallpapers... )

elenniel: (photoshop)
Yikes. I started making wallpapers again and then realised that I have SUCH a backlog of unposted wallpapers and I didn't even realise it. @_@ So here's a mixture of stuff that ought to have been posted last year and some newer ones that I just made.

Contents: Kanjani8, K8 combis, Yokoyama You, Ohkura Tadayoshi, Arashi, Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho, Okada Junichi, Nagano Hiroshi, Takizawa Hideaki

It's really been a while! )

I just watched episode 1 \XD/

Thoughts (that are spoiler-ish):
- I feel faintly alarmed and kind of stunned that I managed to comprehend a lot of the dialogue without subs. Without English subs, anyway. There were Mandarin and Japanese subs. I think the Jap subs did help here and there. I feel like I could almost... sub this. With a spot translator. 8D

In this episode of Janiben the guest, Nanao, has a passion for snakes (and reptiles in general). Naturally, the staff aren't going to miss a chance to make the Johnny's idols squirm... so they bring in two snakes and a lizard.

Tacchon and Baru look the most upset about the prospect of snakes in the studio.

Eito were just hilarious in the countdown con, weren't they?

Oh, just loads of screencaps (more than 40?). Just a little bit from #21 and the rest is all #26 - well, not the whole ep, but just the most hilarious parts. Some Shiwake episodes or clips really need to be subbed, but my translating powers are just not there yet so this is the best I can do for now to share some K8 fun. ^_^
(I think these sort-of-translations are good practice for me. They force me to look up kanji I don't know.)

In Shiwake #21, Kanjani∞ have to figure out which parent-child pairs are not really parent-and-child. Tacchon goes third after Yoko and Ryo who both succeed in guessing that the parents and children in pairs #4 and #5 are not truly related to each other.

21-1
Tacchon decides to focus on pairs #1 and #8.

It's been a bit of a bad day, so to cheer myself up by feeling like I'm actually of some use, I'm sharing wallpapers. ^^ (I'm reminded of what Yoko said in his greeting at the 8UPPERS con: "I'm not really talented, but one thing I can do is make you happy.")[Poll #1802461]

Ok, wallpapers!
Here we go~ )
elenniel: (sukiyanen)
I just have to LOL over this episode of Shiwake. So this is a partial recap/summary/translation post. 8D (I'm surprised no one has subbed this or any Shiwake ep yet. Or at least there's no sub that I'm aware of.)

Be ye warned: lots of screencaps (and spoilers?).

It's K8 vs a team of geinin-san and they have to take turns to guess which 4 of the 8 women are actually guys. Yoko goes second for K8 and he decides to focus on #1 and #2. He asks them to demonstrate their expressions when mad at a guy, and then after the guy apologises. They do as he asks (and it's really rather obvious from their expressions, I think. haha) but before he makes his decision, he decides to request that #7 do so as well.

shiwakeSP_01

The whole lot of them have found #7 very amusing because she looks completely bored by the proceedings. And for some reason Baru seems to find her charming. Uh, ok, Baru...

(I feel like I'm this nitpicky fashion commentator when it comes to JE. XD )

So K8 designed their own Fight jerseys. Just for the record, I really really enjoyed watching that particular behind-the-scenes video. Someone needs to sub it. hahah

And just a heads-up: look out for more wallpapers soon? :)

elenniel: (kanjani8)
After watching the Monjai Beat PV several times... I conclude that no other JE group has energy levels that high. And that's what makes Kanjani8 fun. :)

I love the bright, airy feel of this PV. It's those colours and the light. So very "K8". The madcap action is also a K8 trademark. I've missed this sort of nutty video from them. hahah
I think the bit in the middle is a bit weird though - where it sounds like Tacchon's voice is... not Tacchon's voice? o_O I dunno. Maybe they edited it to make it sound different or something.

I don't think I have any real gripes with this video. The outfits are all acceptable (though Yasu's hair colour and style makes me think of delinquents or gangsters or something), the editing looks fine (admittedly, it's hard to spot errors amidst the crazy), and there's nothing aesthetically displeasing in the visuals. The visuals all contribute to a happy, sunny feel. Thumbs-up from me~

(Also, seriously, Ryo? I think not having to concentrate on two groups has been good for you.
He seems so much crazier in this PV than in previous ones of similar style (like Musekinin Hero or wahaha). He also looks like he's really having fun, which I approve of.)

.
elenniel: (kanjani8)
Let me show you my thought process regarding the outfits whilst watching the making of K8's Tsubusa ni koi PV.


Yoko - hmm, pretty good (considering I don't usually like that sort of dull mustard-ish yellow). Hina - I don't think that slightly desaturated red flatters him, but overall the look is ok. Maru - flourescent orange; automatic "argh, NO". Ryo - I like that green and I kinda sorta like the purple, but that green + that purple + orange just reads "The Joker" to me. Yasu - flourescent pink; also automatic "argh, NO." (And as for that hair... no, Yasu, NO.)

Hamada Britney was terrifically annoying, but the guys were hilarious! Glad this was subbed. XD (I found this Hamada Britney person annoying even in that subbed clip from HnA - the one with the mystery boxes and Aibu Saki and Nino having to touch the octopus.)

From the very beginning of the episode, Baru had this annoyed/uncomfortable/"what the hell" look on his face. I don't recall him showing such an expression from the start of Janiben before. XD

I happened to stumble upon the VCD of this Gakibara All-Stars episode in a music store and it was going for a really cheap price. I had next to no idea what was in it besides that some of the JE guys were in it (Takki and Arashi were on the cover) but I bought it anyway...

...And had so much fun watching the Kansai Juniors' segment that I just had to sub it. :D So I ripped it from the VCD and it became the second video ever that I subbed but I decided not to post it immediately and kept it as my Christmas present for the V6 and Eito comms. =D
It's a little 'basic' because at the time I hadn't yet learnt certain tricks of subbing (like having multiple colours for one line). I could re-do it, but I've no patience to re-encode and reupload everything again so this'll have to do. ^^

Kansai Jrs vs 20th Century

The Kansai Juniors' representatives - Yoko, Baru, Hina and (an almost unrecognisable) tiny Ryo - were given the challenge of telling their seniors, 20th Century, to retire.

For the benefit of Eito fans who might not be so familiar with V6, 20th Century is the older half of V6 and consists of Sakamoto Masayuki (V6's leader), Nagano Hiroshi and Inohara Yoshihiko.
To give you an idea of exactly why this might be so terrifying... The age gap is quite large - Sakamoto is ten years older than Yoko and Baru, and Nagano and Inocchi aren't too far behind. And to top it all off, Sakamoto is reputed to be quite a scary person. They say even Johnny-san is somewhat afraid of him. XD So you can imagine the then-Kansai Juniors' apprehension at having to tell them to retire. :P

There were some utterly priceless lines in here. XD My favourites were...
Nagano to Kansai Jrs, while pointing at Sakamoto: Look carefully! In ten years you'll all become like that too!

Hina to Yoko: Stop talking. The more you talk, the higher the chance of you getting snapped at!

On to credits and links! )

Hmm...

YOKO, WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR? AGAIN???

:( :( :(

Ryo-chan, you too! Okay, it's better than Yoko's, but still! You had such a nice hairdo... until now...

(Watching K8's Best Artist segment now - because it's the first one to finish downloading. V6/TOKIO almost done and Arashi, for some reason, is being annoying slow. ¬¬ )

6.51PM: Okada! Oh-so-cool in that white hat and white blazer. ♥ And Nagano! <3 Ah, what sights for sore eyes~
(Okada's black-and-white photographs where not half bad too. I particularly liked the composition of the photo where Inocchi was doing a handstand and Ken was holding his ankles. The DOF on the pic of Inocchi with hat in hand was not bad too. Nice, Okada! :Db )
*replays Cho*

7.38PM: I'm going to tell myself that Jun's out-of-place sweater and the annoying scarf around his waist and damp-looking hair is due to the fact that he was late and the stylists didn't have time to fix him up properly before he had to rush out to perform. (Although sometimes letting the stylists have their way is a bad idea too.) If I try very hard and ignore the hair, from the neck up, Jun looks nice. :D But hel-looo, Sho~! Lookin' good! 

(And I am so going to screencap V6's Cho. Can you sense a picspam coming? 8D )
