HPP Blog 9/29/08

Hey (star) it's Anza

Eh? The weather turned cold. (laughing)

Sorry, but it happened suddenly. Even though it turned cooler quickly, I still began to feel a little sick. (laugh)

However, my favorite T-Shirt that I recently got, I'm thinking that I won't have a lot of time to wear it.....the season won't allow it. (laugh)

Besides, right now I'm in the center of a critical age of my life while I'm saying this. That's something I've recently discovered. (laugh)

Also, has everyone heard the acoustic version of, "Chain"? doki doki .... (My heart is pounding)

It's ridiculous. That's kind of what I think I'll feel like afterwards..... but HPP is going to play in the outrageously big Festival. (laugh) It's dangerous....my stomach is tied in knots. But, I'd like to fight through it with all my strength!

Slowly, it feels like my batteries are dying. I need to do a live show soon and keep that from happening!!!!

The members of HPP have been working on a new song. Hey! It's good. (while listening) The tension is ratcheting up!

Oh, yeah.

All 3 guys from the group, Hiro, Mar, and Narumi will be at the Ibanez booth signing autographs at the Loud Park Festival. I'm buzzing with excitement, I think I need to see this for myself. (laugh)

I wonder, should I also stand in line secretly? (laughing)


This entry was a bit of a tough nut to crack. Especially the first half, I'm sure there's a sentence or two that could use some correcting.

current mood: cooky/wacky

It's turned cool, don't you think?

I love the way that Fall flows into Winter. I don't know why. I also love the fashions a lot!

Now, as usual, I spend every day rushing around. I'm excited about all the different things that are happening. You might say, they're big.

Or, you could simply say, I love music.

We made a stage decision for HPP. Down the road, we'll be playing at the Loud Park Festival and at the Monster House......(bubbling over)

Right now, the HPP members are confined to the studio. (laughing) I'm digging down for all my strength!

And then, at last I went to the factory where they're making the DVD. (laugh) The only thing left is to wait for the sale date and the official release! I'm extremely excited....

Here recently I've often been crying. Why is that?

I wonder....does it have something to do with age?!


I have good news and bad news for American HPP fans. The good news is that the new DVD is available for pre-order on CD Japan. The bad news is that they say that the DVD is Region 2 encoded. Which means you either need a region free DVD player, or you have to watch it on you computer.

HPP's last DVD was Region free. So, I'm hoping this is an error on CD Japan's part.

Here's the link to the pre-order page.

Now, for the first time, appearing together with a true beauty, Clara-chan!!

She's really pretty and kind. A lovely person!!

She's playing the daughter part of the top dog, Takarasuka. (?)

The way she does it gives lot's of meaning to the character!

By the way, the dressing room mirror we're standing in front of is where her dressing room is next door! As always, thank you Clara-chan!!

Well, truthfully, I'm really excited with "Only You". Everyday, I soak in the warm applause of the audience! Tomorrow, I'll also give it my best!

Tomorrow?......I mean today. (laugh)

I have an early start.

I love the warm applause during the show and the Thank You letters! (?)

And now, here's the news for today.

The first Head Phones President acoustic version is now available for download!

Last year, on Dec. 12th, we release the Album, "Folie a Deux". This is the acoustic version of, "Chain" which was the PV tune from that album. The finished musical arrangement is very dreamy!

HPP has also been booked for the Loud Park Festival. Thanks to Aki-Thrash for the heads up.

Well, well.

Talking seriously, "Only You" Opening Day went smoothly and we've finished 4 stage performances.

Already, everyday after the show when I reach my house, I'm so tired that I break down and fall onto the bed.

To everyone who came to the theater to see the show, Thank You very much. (heart)

This time, I guess I surprised everyone by taking such a sexy role. Don't you agree? (laugh)

It's hard to imagine myself wearing the dresses and high heels. It's so different from the usual me. (laugh)

Because the thing I love best is to go kicking around in my sneakers. (laugh)

However, it was good to meet Ayako as if by chance. I've learned a lot of things from her!

She's such a deep woman~.

Anyhow, there's more of her spirit waiting to come out. Perseverance is the key!!!

Well now, I'm going to sleep. (laugh)

Real deal....

current mood: hot

Hey! I've got just enough time!!! I've been really busy and it increases everyday. While there are tensions and insecurities, I continue to fight out!

I was so thankful when I finally reached the house. I walked into the room and collapsed. (laughs)

Then today, for the first time, I came to an understanding....this year has been like a calamity. Don't worry~ it's all right!!!! (laugh) (?)

Right now, there's a major event that makes me angry and I can't do a thing about it.....will it never stop??? (?)

I seriously ask your pardon.... is it too much..... to ask for a little good fortune? (laugh)

Now, this month, on September 18th, the acoustic version of "Chain" will go on sale for downloads! I think it's quite a lovely musical arrangement!! Don't forget, be sure to download it.

Go to http://www.livecheers.com

We've also decided to do a One-Man Live Show on Friday November 21st, 2008 in Shibuya at Club Asia.

And then, on October 29th, the sale of the second Live DVD will begin. You should be able to pre-order it at the CD shops, so do it now so you don't miss out! Man! It's chocked full of content!

Everyone~ do your best! I~ will also do my best! (laughing)


I'm not sure what major event Anza is referring too. It's kind of like a major turning point in life.

?????- (don't know)

I'm going to the theater every day. We're doing dress rehearsals for the play, and I'm getting better! Whew~ it's very serious. (laugh)

What is best for the stage is to have plenty of dress rehearsals, but that can tire you out. Anyhow, the performance will look good!

Really, this has taken up all of my time and I haven't been able to update my Blog lately.....

About a year ago, my on-stage sister made her first appearance in the musical, "Love, goes Beyond the Time". I played the Koharu part and Noriko Sakamoto played Nikki. This time also, we're back together!! Soon now, I'll be looking out for you again!!

You know I love you!! (laugh)

Well, tomorrow I have an early start!

I'm going to bed!!!! (laughs)


I'm pretty sure that Yuya will have a correction or two for this one. The title for one. I couldn't figure that out.

Dazed and Confused. (music note)

When I sing, I like to go for it all the way! (lol)

Yeah. To everyone who came out to the live show at Nagoya, Thank You. I was being quite forced by my schedule, but I spent the most time there that I possibly could!!

For a little while, HPP is on a live show Holiday. This member and the whole crew are doing their best, working on the final stage of putting together the DVD for the October 29th sale.

And then, seriously, the "Only You" musical practice is also in its final stages!!

I think very soon we'll be saying good bye to the training hall for our practices...

Ayako will do her best!!


Here's the link for the web site where the acoustic version of "Chain" will be sold.

Is it September already?! Really? It's too early, isn't it?

It feels like a few months ago we said, "Happy New Year". (laugh)

The HPP live shows will be on a long holiday for a while. Just about a month, probably.

Though, we have a lot of work left to do!! It's down to the home stretch for editing the DVD. I'm sure the new DVD will have plenty of contents for you to enjoy.

Be sure to pre-order your copy and wait for the release. (laugh)

It seem that the "Chain" Acoustic version will be sold on line. (laugh) The details of where to download it will be posted on the HPP Official site. Make sure to check it out!


To everyone who came out to the Nagoya show to see us, Thank You!!



Thanks to Yuya for his help on translating this entry. I couldn't figure out that second line about New Years at all. It was driving me nutty.
