Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

hanako oku as mouse

Guest Mouse: Oku Hanako

I was happy that a YouTube user re-posted this interesting performance by a young Hanako Oku!

Hanako Oku makes a cameo appearance on this (unknown) Japanese Television show from several years ago. Although I do not understand much of what is said, it is still fun to watch. She plays some snippets of her commercial jingles and other songs, then laughs and jokes with the other two performers.

Notable:

  1. Well, Hanako Oku dressed as a mouse.
  2. Hanako Oku wearing a SKIRT. Note that because she is a LADY MOUSE she is wearing a mini-skirt. Only time I have ever seen her in one (… at least a skirt that short)!

I had seen this a long time ago, when I was first falling in like with HO songs. It was taken off — and I had to wonder why. What possible harm was there to the other performers, their companies or their lawyers?  I have to credit YouTube user サバイデサバイ for recently posting several PRICELESS videos of early Hanako Oku performances. There are several  rare live clips which show Hanako Oku early in her career. Thank you sir (or ‘mam) … I bow respectfully to you. You are making it very enjoyable to participate in Hanako Oku’s 10 year anniversary! (I hope I don’t get them in trouble by posting this.)

Just enjoy it for now, all Hanako Oku fans … all three of us in North America, I guess. If you are not a fan, you don’t know how much we enjoys clips like this. She endears herself to us. To us, it is instant joy to see The Little Great One. I feel like buying her records all over again.

Starlight: I do not have a date of origin … does anyone know?

Comments on: "Hanako Oku footage resurfaces …" (2)

  1. The show is Nezumi CLUB / ねずみクラブ, which translates to “mouse club”, which explains why they’re in mouse costumes.
    As for when this was aired, you’ll see a lot of results for 2007, but the earliest search result I found was on Mixi, dated May 29, 2006. The post itself suggests it was aired the night before (I think).

    Nice find!

  2. Download it quick before it vanishes again.
