Girls in blue and white: AKB 48 - Gingham Check, CNBlue - Code Name Blue, Gazette - Division & more! - in Weekly Music and Movies Update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com.

64 girls are chosen out of hundreds via the 4th AKB main election wars. The strife has been intensive since the eternal center girl Maeda Atsuka is sitting out of this war. The new center girl is Oshima Yuuko, and she is leading the group in Gingham Check. Fitting with the title of the song, the girls put on blue and white checkered dresses. This is the most spectacular show before the end of summer.

Both Type A and Type B comes with Gingham Check, the number performed by the top 16 girls from the elections. Type A also has Maeda Atsuko's graduation song Yume no Kawa and Doremifa Onchi by the Next Girls. Type B has Nande Bohemian by the Under Girls and Show Fight! by the Future Girls.

Remember their code names. CNBlue is one of the more unique rock bands in Korea. They establish their place in the music industry through the power on their music instead of through heavily produced images. Code Name Blue is their first original Japanese album, it includes their hit songs such as Come On and Time is Over.

The world of Visual kei is captivating. And one of the most representative bands in this genre is the Gazette. Step into the dark side of rock, the stylish and just slightly unearthly music welcomes you. They incorporate something ethereally beautiful even in moments of hellish brutality.

It's been a year since they released their last album Toxic, Division is a twin CD package filled with their latest hits such as Derangement and Ibitsu. The DVD comes with their boundary breaking music videos. Combining sounds and visuals, the videos are bound to send a chill up your spine.
