This week we check in on a favorite of the show, Miss Kimura Kaela with her new album "Sync." Will she remain in our good graces or be cast out from the GK Pantheon?


-Pause for dramatic effect-

A group that is unlikely to ever reach the GK Pantheon, Korean sub-unit Orange Caramel, also get a review this week with the Japanese version of their Korean single "LIPSTICK."If you like episodes that sound like one long conversation that happen to have segment breaks then you're in for a treat! If not, you'll soldier through it because you love us anyway. Kisses!

Gaijin Kanpai Ep.156 - "Bring in the Rollerskating Transvestites"

It'll all make sense, I promise you.

Some of you think we only review albums and singles that we all *want* to review. That is very much not true. Case in point: Kis-my-1st. While I may have been interested to see what these Johnny's boys can do, Erin turned up her nose, and Jaylee....well, let's just say he bled to see color again*. Kis-My-Ft2 literally spew rainbows, so I don't know his reasoning. Maybe you'll catch some glimpses as to why.

 

We also review Kalafina. They are great. Not only are they a "chamber-pop" group which I think is an awesome genre, they also have Keiko as a member. Ah, Keiko. How I love you. With your beautiful voice, your extreme elegance, and your...bangs. You are one the very few women whom I consider perfect. If you're reading this and ever want to become a chubby-chaser, you give good ol' LoKi a call. I'm waiting. No, seriously.  

 

You will definitely want to join us next week on the uStream next week because it's GK Game Show week! We're going to shake it up a bit and play a game we're tentatively calling "Kamen Kanpai". Wanna know what it is? Hit up TotallyRadShow.com and watch one of their "Secret Identity" segments. Swap movie/games/TV characters for Japanese equivalents and voila! You can catch that on Wednesday night at 7:30pm PST with here on JpopJrock.com/LIVE

 

* Jaylee does not cut himself. Nor should you. It's a joke. Deal with it.

 

Until then, enjoy the show and our NOTES!
