Snivy’s order from CD-Japan has arrived! It is hard to get these three Unova Region starter Pokémon to agree on anything – but they all wanted to watch this blu-ray set of Hanako Oku’s big concert. This is the FIRST TIME that a Hanako Oku concert has been available on blu-ray! The great thing about blu-ray is that is that the discs will play on a Region-A BD player! No more hassles with DVD Region 2 being incompatible with Unova DVD players! OK guys, get unboxing!
Go Snivy! Use VINE WHIP!
I know how he feels: The little guy was so eager — he dived right into the box!
Oh Tepig — you can play with that bubble-wrap later!
Yes, Oshawatt — it is a Blu-Ray, and you are a WATER TYPE — so what’s the connection again?
They were all so excited about the contents!
No, Oshawatt … you spin the disc in the Playstation 3, not on your TAIL!
Snivy was so proud. He said that holding the discs made him feel like he was hugging the real Hanako Oku!
Maybe set a little farther away from the TV, Snivy! It is amazing to see close-ups of Miss Oku on our 46-inch TV. The picture is great, and it sounds very good considering they are just the stock TV speakers.
Snivy commented further that Hanako Oku and her band are “Fun to watch and just listen to while playing.” Tepig said “She looks beautiful.” Oshawatt says “She is super-cute in those pantaloons!”
I agree with Snivy, I think The Little Great One looks very pretty and exquisitely feminine throughout these performances. “What a nice lady …” Tepig added, “I respect her a lot.”
Oshawatt likes the cover. (He is just pretending he knows how to read music.) We all enjoyed watching both discs. The marketing geniuses at PonyCanyon Records have banned Hanako Oku music videos in the Unova Region, so I guess we will have to rely more on Blu-Ray concert videos from now on.
The guys had a lot of fun unboxing, playing, listening, and swooning over Hanako Oku. We even watched her rehearsals that were in the BD Special Features.
During the encore, she sings “Happy Day” and walks out into the audience and high-fives everyone. I will say that she talks to the audience a lot … and explains the songs before playing them. Oh, I wish I had a better understanding …
The whole band is pretty cool, and they all get thanks and introductions. I especially enjoyed the live string section.
There is also a Hanako Oku narrated track! You can listen to the concert, but on track 2, Miss Oku describes the concert.
My Pokémon hope Hanako Oku will release more material on Blu-Ray!
Hey, wait … what happened to Tepig? Did anyone see where he went?
Starlight: Only six days from Japan at the speed of $13.95!
