Reina Tanaka 


From time to time the song Ikimasshoi pops into my head. It usually happens when I’m hiking or when it’s time to leave. Then my brain goes “na-na na-na ikimashou!” :)

Here Morning Musume is performing Ikimasshoi at their 2007 fall concert tour, in all their arm flailing glory :lol:

Just in case someone else has gotten on the Reina train, here she is in the Hello! Project group High-King, which only was active for one single (?).

I thought this song was so-so when I first heard it, but like other songs where Reina Tanaka sings it seems to be covered with some kind of “brain glue” that makes it stick ;)

 

I normally don’t post files this big, but I thought I’d make an exception this time.

Real Challenge!!

This is Reina Tanaka’s latest DVD Real Challenge (cover to the right) in PSP format. It’s a mix of making of footage from her latest photo book Very Reina and other things she did when they were shooting in Hokkaido. Such as eating seafood, cooking, making butter, etc. A thing that hangs over Reina throughout the video is that she has to memorize the names of the cities in Hokkaido. If she can’t do it, there will be a penalty :)

You can buy the DVD here.

It’s coupon season at YesAsia, so I’m taking this opportunity to buy some stuff that I’ve wanted but haven’t bought yet. It’s my annual tradition to try to plan my purchases to get the maximum benefit from the coupons. This, together with my new Reina obsession has made me want to get her latest photo book Very Reina.

Here’s the “making of” video that comes with the book:

I’ve recently become somewhat obsessed with Reina Tanaka. I’m not sure what started it, but I bought her photo book Re: not too long ago, so that might have something to do with it.

Anyway, I downloaded some videos of her singing and there was this one song that’s been stuck in my head since then. It goes “Shine. You’re shining. It’s shining in my heart. I believe that you are shining…”. Can you guess what the song is called? That’s right: “Shining” :lol:

It’s Reina and Ai Takahashi who perform it.

Warning: viewing may cause song to permanently stick to your brain :lol:

When Reina goes “I believe that you are shining. Oh, most in this world. You are shining…” it kind of reminds me of when Conan O’Brien sings his lullaby “… moms and dads please turn baby, away form the TV screen, away from the TV screen” :)
