Contest #9: Kikka autographs!

Quick note: this will be my last contest, as I'm 99% sure I'll be closing Airii~n deshou?! for good, but more on that after this contest is over.

So remember the autographs that I got from meeting Kikka at AWA? Well as I said, I'll be giving away the black autographed T-shirt as a 1st place prize. I might also give away the photoset if I think another person is deserving of a prize.

To win:
1. Create/do something as long as it relates to Kikkawa Yuu (it can be a dance cover, fandub, fanart, fanfic, essay, OPV, or anything).

2. Email your entry to with the subject "Contest #9: Kikka autographs!"

3. Submit your entry before December 8th, 11:59 PM U.S. Eastern Time.

I'll announce the winner(s) on that Sunday and blog about Airii~n deshou?!'s future afterwards.

Good luck everyone!


  1. Ah, this makes me sad... this was one of the first sites I found during my early days as a Hello! Pro fan. I became so dedicated to you, I really did, and whilst I may not have commented a lot, I really loved what you did for fans by allowing us to see the PV's, have fansubs etc...

    If you close down Airii~n Deshou, remember that you have pretty much made/helped fans with learning more about H!P, and enjoying their video's.

  2. Wish I could enter this, since it's the last contest and Kikka has recently become my favorite Japanese soloist. :) Good luck to anyone who enters!

    And if Airii~n deshou?! does close... I think I'm literally going to cry. But I'll understand whatever your reasons are if you do decide to close it. <3 You really really helped in making me the huge H!P fan I am today, so thank you so much!

  3. Thank you for everything you have done with this site. Just like Chiima, this was one of the first sites I found after stumbling across H!P and deciding to investigate further. Your news articles and commentaries were always what brought me back. The downloads were greatly appreciated, and I know how time-consuming all of this must have been. Thank you, again, for bringing us this wonderful site, no matter what may happen in the future.

  4. It's really upsetting to see that the site might close down, but I really hope that previous posts might still be available if you do close it.

  5. Thank you everyone for your comments! They seriously mean a lot to me.

    @Chiima: I'm really glad to hear that, especially coming from you! It's like we've switched places because now I'm the one who enjoys reading your blog (your Youtube videos are pretty awesome too), even if I don't comment.

    I wanted to help people understand just how great I think H!P is, and convert people to the fandom, so I'm glad I could accomplish that goal.

    @Shayna: Aw, don't cry~ Maybe in the future (if/when I move to Japan) I'll re-open my blog, but I just didn't want to keep it on hiatus and have people waiting for a comeback that wasn't going to happen. You're welcome and thanks for the kind words!

    @whirr81: Ah no problem! I'm really glad to hear that people actually liked my ramblings, but yeah the majority of my posts took hour(s) to either write or prepare so it was always a ton of work. I'm not complaining though, I loved doing it!

    @Patchwork Elmpetal: Don't worry, I won't delete anything. Everything will still be visible for everyone to see.

  6. Awww I'll really really miss this blog a whole lot. I always looked forward to updates on this site and checked it constantly. I hope everything goes okay for you, and you'll still be around on twitter :)

  7. Nookkk gonna miss this blog sooo much... Love Kikka but i suck at doing... Hope you do well in whatever you do =]

  8. Hi ^ ^
    Sorry I know it has nothing to do with the subject of the article above, but ... have any chance of putting back the download link of episode 39 of Hello Pro! TIME?
    Thank you

  9. @Leia: Thanks! I'll definitely still be on twitter so we can always talk there.

    @gustave154: Thanks! Even if you suck at things, just try your best, you never know!

    @Bruna J-Music Nyappy: The link still works for me. What problem are you having?

  10. I am so sad to hear that you will be closing down the site, but I know how much time it can take up to do these things, I am happy for how much you have helped me and others with providing us with so much great content.

    I will really miss this blog, all I can say is THANK YOU!

  11. Airiin Deshou has been one of my favorite blogs to visit for like... EVERYDAY!
    Knowing that you're going to close this down really made me sad.. I'm going to miss this blog, and I want to thank you for all the help you did for us fans to enjoy H!P more.. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    and can I ask a question? how many entries can we submit for the contest? :D Thank you :D

  12. Aw thank you, you two.

    @Ran-chan: You can send as many as you want.

  13. Thank you so much for opening this blog till now. I'm so glad with your video download cause it's in smaller size but not without degrading the quality.

    Hope you move quickly to Japan and reopen this blog. :)

  14. @Opick: Thanks, I hope I can move to Japan quickly too!


  15. The deadline has been extended by a week.

  16. This seems like fun~
    If I can still find enough time, I'll definitly try to make some fanart because Kikka is so cute >w<

  17. It really makes me sad to hear that this blog may be closing down. I've read and enjoyed many of your posts, as they often put a smile on my face. Thank you for what you've done for me, as well as all the other Hello Project! fans!! I wish you the best of luck!
