S/mileage news

Catching up on some of the latest S/mileage news (it's been a long, busy week in the life of Airiindeshou...), here are three things of note.

First, the Tachiagaaru PV was uploaded to the official S/mileage channel Tuesday:

Next, here is a download link to S/mileage's concert that was streamed live on Youtube (not my recording): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=M9I4VJIF

And finally, it was announced that in order to become full S/mileage members, the sub-members must partake in their own Smile Campaign, but with a twist. They must travel Japan and convince strangers to take a picture with them and upload it to that person's blog or any other social networking site.

Considering how rare it is for something like that to happen (it's against the rules for H!P members to take pictures with fans normally, except for the occasional FC photo), I'd love to be in Japan right now. Wanna get my picture taken with Kanana~

    It is not right for them to take pics with fans because fans can sell them as merchandise and make a quick buck.

  6. ^ Yeah, that. A couple of foreign fans have ran into H!P girls in Japan before and asked to take pictures only to be turned down each time. (Though they did get a handshake.)

  7. ^Although it seems to be fine when outside of Japan.
    I remember reading reports from the Japan Expo in France where fans bumped into them in front of the Eiffel tower and their accompanying managers even suggested it.

  8. Ah, very true. Moral of the story: hope they come to your country

  10. I love the new Smile Campaign thingy! I'm glad they're not just making their way into the group with something as simple as an audition, when the original members have worked their butts off just to get the group started. XD
    So, does each member have to work their way into the group separately, or do they all go together? (the former would make more sense) And how many pictures do they have to take?
