Random Momoi Haruko News

It's been a while since I've updated on Halko happenings this month, so let's get started with a few items today. For the month of June...

Item 1: Momoi's website seems to be getting a design overhaul. If my understanding isn't completely off, the new version will be hosted on a different server (under the same domain name), and boasts her own handwritten HTML. Please correct me on this if I am wrong. Right now the page is a temporary placeholder. It's really cute how she is just ditching the old blog software and editing the news entries manually. Momoi also has a thing for hit counters, and even the makeshift temporary placeholder site does not disappoint in this. I guess that really just shows her old school style. In the 90's, everyone absolutely had to have a hit counter on their site. I remember doing the exact same thing with all my early geocities pages. The original website can still be found here, but is no longer maintained. For even earlier Momoi pages, you can use the Wayback machine.

Item 2: DreamParty OSAKA 2005 Spring concert is coming up in only 3 days. Initially, I always wrote off Dreamparty concerts as minor events, but after seeing some shots of DreamParty in Tokyo back in May, I've changed my mind. The events appear to be VERY Halko-centric. I am really looking forward to seeing pictures from this one, and still waiting for the DVD of the last concert. She always chooses the best outfits and sings in such a great voice. When other girls wear net like that, they look hideous. When Halko wears net, it's wholly different. Once again there is the magic. As robot touch from SA so accurately puts it, "The strange paradox is that, although I'm utterly retarded for Momoi's voice and how adorable it is, if some random girl in a shop or on the street started talking that way, I would punch her right in the neck. Right in it. Nobody has an excuse to talk that way."

Item 3: It looks like they will be making another season of Ragnarok. Hopefully, we can see Momoi reprise her role of Maya. They BETTER include Maya. Clearly her relationship with Alice and that other half demon were the most interesting and strongest parts of the entire season. The other characters were all horribly weak. Roan was basically a dick, Iruga was so emo, and Yuufa had a massive and decidedly creepy oniisan complex. Maya made the show worth watching, although I may be biased.
