Happy 2008 to everyone from BOO!

It is a few days late, but we would like to wish everyone a Very HAPPY NEW YEAR in 2008! Hope you all succeed in everything that you want to do this year, and best of luck for it! :)

The aim for us this year? For BOO to become better! :) We definitely have something to look forward to, as BOO will be celebrating its very first birthday very soon! It would be an understatement to say that it has been a brilliant time, where the definite highlight was the opening of the BOO Forums by Sowon in April 2007!

I’ve met some seriously amazing Back-on fans through there, and if you do have some time, I would really encourage you to pay a visit and have a look around! A big thanks must go to the members for their great support, and if you did have any questions about the band (and band members) this is the place to ask as there are lots of experts! :)

Because the new year is a time of reflection:

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has supported the site in some way or another, whether as a fantastic fellow admin (Sowon) or by providing site content (MJtheOne for the wallpapers, funbari for the lyrics, and guitar chords by Avalonstar12) including the images found in the Gallery (particularly ichiban) and also the special Back-on videos provided by gangangan03, blueblueblue and SoundEX amongst others. Of course the thank you must extend to the many people (who I’m sorry to have not mentioned here) who have made the site so much richer by posting comments and writing about their experiences both on the Forums and the main site. THANK YOU!

And before I forget: THANK YOU, BACK-ON, FOR BEING SO EXTRAORDINARY!

Happy new year everyone!

p/s: And for some really yummy news, rumour has it that Back-on will be releasing a brand new single on January 30th 2008. We don’t have much detail to go by at the moment, but will definitely keep you posted! If you would like to follow the latest developments, feel free to read the forum thread about the new release created by slipknot240.

Forthcoming news and site updates for September 2007!

Before telling you all about what’s planned for BOO in September, firstly, I really have to apologise to BOO Forum Members for not being available for the last month or two due to work commitments. They have been fantastic with posting messages and keeping the board active, so I would also like to say a big thank you to you all! :)

Despite continuing RL commitments, I will try and be as active as possible to make up for the lost time. Send me an email or something if you feel (at any point) that I need to be kick-started into action. ;)

Moving on to the planned updates for news, I am currently facing a small backlog of news posts about Back-on‘s activities that need to be written up, so they will be released over the next two weeks or so. This includes the new PV preview of Butterfly that is available on Back-on’s Myspace, some new videos on Youtube from Sound EX and blueblueblue, as well as some interesting news about Back-on‘s charity efforts and alot more!

However, one of the major works planned for September 2007 is to the main BOO site. Some of you may already have spotted a difference or two already, but I’ll try and summarise the changes below:

  • Wallpapers – A brand new section of Back-on wallpapers for your desktop that has been created with the help of MJTheOne! All the fantastic work you’ll see was sent to me a few weeks back, but alas it’s taken me a while to work out the layout and actually post the content! The first wallpaper – Chain – is all ready to be released, and you can get a sneak preview thumbnail below!

    Chain (Wallpaper) by MJtheOne - Thumbnail

    Please do show your support for MJTheOne by visiting his Deviantart account (to view his other work- I personally love the 3ds MAX designs!) and by leaving him your comments!

  • Lyrics – This is definitely one of the most popular sections of BOO, and now that I’m armed with a bit more experience with WordPress template editing, the Lyrics section is now ordered alphabetically rather than chronologically! Hopefully this will make it far easier to view all the lyrics (that, and everything is now on the same page) Of course, feedback is always appreciated!
    Please also lookout for the release of more lyrics later on this month!
  • Where to BUY Back-on’s CDs?BOO have already made a brief stab at this information on the Music page, but with the forthcoming release of 2 singles on September 19th 2007, it seemed like a good time to write up a proper post. I would definitely welcome any input from other fans for this section, and will be making a post on the Forums in the next few days for people to post their suggestions too!
  • And other ideas! – These are currently taking shape in my mind, so are not finalised per-se. I will be bouncing a few of these ideas off a few people this month to see if they will be suitable for BOO first, just in case ;)

Well, as Porky Pig might say at the end of each Looney Tunes episode – ‘That’s all folks!’ – but only for now! Please do let us know what you think of the new updates! :)

p/s: For visitors who are also looking for the next Music update, don’t worry – it’s coming soon!

Of course, the video is included in this post as well, and it seems that this is a special version of the PV with extra ending credits! The info comes courtesy of Koutarou, and you can find out a little more below the video.

BACK-ON – FLYDOM | Lyrics and English Translation

The more I listen to FLYDOM (from Baby Rock) the more I like it! And I had to listen to it quite a few times today, as the lyrics were quite long! ;) It is one of the few Back-on songs that has a PV, which you can watch here. The lyrics are about flying, freedom etc., similar to the themes from Hikari Sasuhou, Chain, and New World from the New World album.

As always, if you spot any mistakes, please let me know either by commenting below or via the contact form. If you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please link back to this page. :)

BACK-ON – Gaku-Ten | Lyrics

Finally, after the long wait, I can present you with the lyrics of Gaku-Ten from Baby Rock! Thank you all for your patience. It was surprisingly easy to convert to hiragana after typing up the original (kanji) lyrics, partially because of the extensive use of katakana for words such as ‘pheromone’ and also there were few ‘tricky’ pronunciations, unlike perhaps in New World.

The song is about the (adolescent) Back-on fantasising about their new female teacher. I’ts hard to express the hilarity of the song with just words, so take a look at the Gaku-Ten PV ft. Nao Oikawa (courtesy of blueblueblue) The band uses phrases such as

‘pheromone bang bang’, ‘baby’ and ‘ボンキュッボン’

the latter is apparenty used when describing a voluptuous body.

‘ハート ドッキドッキ’ (heart dokki dokki) and 超キュート (chou kyuuto)

both make an appearance, where the former is an onomatopoeia of a rapidly beating heart (from excitement), and the latter stands for ‘super cute‘.

Other points worth noting are below (in no particular order):

キーンコーンカーンコーン = (sound of the school bell ringing)
バトル = (battle)
トビラ = (door… in hiragana, tobira is supposedly another word for door)
ヤベー = (I’m in big trouble? source)
ビンチ = (pinch – in a pinch or a crisis)
キメて = (the point where victory is determined?)
なんちゃって = (just kidding/joking – a colloquial phrase)
マチガイ = (mistake?)

However, I wasn’t sure of the actual meaning and context of a few katakana phrases, so I’ve left them out for the moment for future referencing or for some kind soul to inform me about what it actually *means*.

As always, if you spot any mistakes, please let me know either by commenting below or via the contact form.

If you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please link back to this page. :)

Watch Kodou PV as well as a clip of Back-on’s live performance!

We haven’t posted updates regarding Back-on Youtube content for a long while (its mainly been about e.g. Murder Princess OVA), but the list included MVs for New World, Gaku-Ten and Flydom. Today, I came across some brand new videos uploaded by the one-and-only blueblueblue. I can only hazard a guess that this user is from Japan but he/she comes up with the most unique Back-on clips!
