Well, it's been awhile since I've been into this group and I think it's about time I finally make a thread.. mainly because Smilie sparked my interest in doing so a week or so back.
For those that don't know, Perfume is a JTrance group that produces not only wonderful music but awesome dance moves too. :P So I recommend that if you don't like this sort of stuff you leave the thread, now! D:< Otherwise feel free to post your thoughts on the group here as well as pictures and videos. And if you're new to the band I recommend trying them out, they have some great stuff. <3
Speaking of which, here's the latest commercial they've done for Pepsi. So cute <3
And of course a live performance from them, I find that their live performances are so much more addictive and this song is awesome, I couldn't decide which one to upload because their live performances are all too good.
And just something for teh lulz. Seriously, they're so cute when they do this but fricken lul at Nocchi, she's like. PUNCH! D:< XD
Who's your favorite member? I love Kashiyuka ! <3

Which is which? I say the one on the left side in the first image.
08-03-2010, 12:29 PM
Oh from left to right it goes ~
08-03-2010, 12:32 PM
Oh hey, budoukan! *thinks of K-On!
They're really cute, gonna look into them. Song was nice and not too tranced up like all them mainstream radio shiz (English songs, that is).
08-03-2010, 12:37 PM
Rep, WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU DONE? :)
If it weren't for that last option, I would have already ragequit as fast as when the pedobear came to your room when you were 6. :)
08-03-2010, 12:38 PM
Yay! I hope you like them too Haru. : D
And I know what you mean by too trancy, I've been looking for good trance songs lately but man.. just.. man. D:
Some piccys! <3
And this is just too cute. XD
EDIT: I don't know Smilie~ I do not know..!!
Oh well, cuteness all round! haha
08-03-2010, 12:42 PM
BTW, Rep, are you a member here? :)
08-03-2010, 12:44 PM
Not yet, I'm a lurker of the forums for now. I've been thinking of joining though mainly because I'd like to be kept up to date with information about them and also because they have the best photostream for Perfume. <3
I'm planning on buying their Livefolio and Portfolio if I can get ahold of it. I've seen some of the shots done and they look beautiful. <3

Since I can't decide between who is my favorite member, I should say that I like Nocchi's voice among them but that doesn't make her my favorite. :)
EDIT: Oh and seeing the music video of their latest single VOICE makes 'hole in the wall' players fail miserably. :)
08-03-2010, 01:27 PM
Oh my gosh, I know! I thought that was so cute when they put that in their video. For those that don't know what VOICE is, here's a preview clip of it. : D
VOICE x <3
It's such a cute video, thanks for showing me it when you did Smilie. Sucks that the link is down now though. D:
I just watched this video where Perfume was performing with some huge ass balloons and they were popping right in front of them whilst they were dancing. XD
08-03-2010, 01:45 PM
You mean this link? :)
08-03-2010, 01:49 PM
OMG IT WORKS!
Yay! I've been trying to find the video for quite awhile now. D: Thanks for the link Smilie!
08-03-2010, 08:34 PM
One thing I always liked about Perfume was the crazy designs of their videos. Voice was really nice, too. I liked it.
08-03-2010, 09:41 PM
Ooooh! A Perfume Thread!:D
I think their all cute, so I can't choose. I love their songs "Chocolate Disco" and "Polyrhythm".
08-03-2010, 10:48 PM
I perfer A-Chan but...there all awsome <3
08-04-2010, 12:20 AM
Did anybody notice that I spelt Kashiyuka's name wrong? buaha, I'll fix that soon. I love them all as well, so cute! I'm shocked that we have a few Perfume fans here! O: So far I thought it was only me, Belts and Smilie. Guess not :P
VOICE is a great video clip and I totally agree with what you said Belts, not only that but in their older videos their crazy outfits just make them look.. well silly of course, but unique and different. Fushizen na Girl is my favorite release still and the instrumental is even better. <3 I watched this video of a fan opening his single and he was so happy.. and old. XD
I hope that they perform at this years Rock Japan! I love watching their live performances from there.
And I so wish I could watch their television show but there's no where to do so.. D:
Oh well, more Perfume I say! Secret Secret is awesome. <3

You're not the only one who spelled it wrong, my friend spells it as Kashiuka. :)

No wai Ghur, don't you try to hijack this thread! Though, that video reminds me of Perfume's Secret Secret PV in a way.
In other news! I think that this video kashiyuka looks uber pretty. <3

@Smilie - Naaaw, I remember when I didn't even know Perfume and their names confuzzled me. D: Sometimes I think that Nocchi's name is spelt Nouichi for some reason. :P
08-05-2010, 08:30 PM
I still say they're like Daft Punk, but with japanese women. However, that's not a bad thing :p

That's only one of the greatest things ever.
08-05-2010, 08:59 PM
I honestly don't know. I'd have to say the one on the right, I guess, although I'm more of a fan of K-Pop, and thus, if I was allowed, I'd have picked Jessica, Yoona or Seohyun from SNSD. =3
08-09-2010, 09:07 AM
Oooh, SNSD! I don't really dig them for some reason. Their only release that got me hooked was Gee and Genie wasn't that bad. I don't dig the large group. D:
I think I love Perfume for their story and definitely for their friendship. A-Chan said something really cute like.. I have many wishes but my one wish would be that Perfume stay together forever. Or was that Nocchi who said that? Bad memory is bad.. XD
Anyway their friendship is so admirable ~ <3 they've been together for such a long time and even watching the documentary on them brought a tear to my eye. Just like it did A-Chans <3

A-Chan is such a crybaby.. :P <3
08-09-2010, 09:19 AM
Creating the group when they where 12 or 13 yrs of age, it truly was a surprising fact. :)
08-09-2010, 09:25 AM
Yeah, I remember seeing Kashiyuka crying because she didn't think that their dream would come true. T^T
08-09-2010, 09:33 AM
Isn't it kind of unbelievable that they're performing lives though?
Unless their microphones have something to change their voices a little, do they really sound like VOCALOID's when they speak?
08-09-2010, 09:35 AM
Nah, I don't think they perform live. I've seen a lot of comments that have been posted like "They don't perform live! I'm disappointed!" but I think it would be hard to perform their songs live >.O;
Unless they are actually live and they're not lipsynching at all. It's mainly hard to believe because they're jumping around and dancing whilst singing perfectly fine. >.O;
And I don't think so, Kashiyuka is so cute when she talks 83 well, they all are ~
08-09-2010, 09:38 AM
Lots of dancers/singers perform while dancing. Especially for Asian pop, look at like, all the Korean groups and lots of the, um, Hello!Project groups like Buono.
I've seen a few videos where they have a crowd, or are those fake? Not to mention the one you posted up there says 'LIVE'.
08-09-2010, 09:40 AM
Really!? Man, that is amazing. I love Buono's, Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! and Rottara Rottara <3
I'm guessing they're not fake! I've seen performances that they've done in malls and hardly anybody is there at all D:
08-09-2010, 06:45 PM
I know that hearing Kashiyuka's voice on the interview, she was a bit off-key, so I think that's why pretty much whenever she sings, there's an auto-tune effect. Granted it makes them sound unique, but you know why they do it :P I think she might've gotten better though, voice-training and stuff like that.
As for live, it's pretty much a given that any pop singer who dances during their songs is not in fact singing, because it's pretty much physically impossible to jump and dance and not hear the effects in someone's singing. Take a look at any live punk band, where the singer jumps around during a guitar solo, he's tired and can barely sing when he needs to finish up the final chorus :P
But, as for Perfume, aside from their music, watching them perform is still a sight, because they have such interesting sets and dances put to their music, so who cares if they're not really signing it at that point. They still sang at one time for the vocals of the song :P
Wow...uh...wall of text >.<
12-23-2010, 07:42 AM
Wow Dissidia fans are also perfume fans? That's awesome.
I was just changing my siggy to nocchi (my fave btw) just 'cause I'm too lazy to make a sig and I see this thread. What a coincidence.
perfume can sing, but for the most part their live performances don't seem to be live voices due to their music style and their intricate, precise dance moves.
Oh, and here's a video of them singing karaoke to get an idea of how they actually sing (if you haven't seen it)
And one of my fave performances by them
I think their edgier songs are kickass.
12-23-2010, 10:54 PM
I think that Nocchi's new hair style is really nice <3 The girls have grown so much over the past few years. It's amazing to see how far they've come, i watched their documentary and cried when I saw all the hard work they did and nearly didn't make it =[
Did you see some of their performances at Tokyo Dome? I really wish I could've been there to experience it <3 and I love the edge mix ! :D most of their songs/remixes are great. <3
12-24-2010, 12:09 AM
I agree! I really dig her new cut. She sure can pull off alot of looks.
Their documentary was very touching, I agree. After watching it I gained a deeper respect for perfume and their efforts to keep going. It's inspiring.
Yeah! I think I've seen almost all the perfume vids on youtube, they're all really fantastic. I was so happy and proud as a fan to see them participate in Macau for the mnet (lolmnet) music awards. They looked pretty nervous but they really did good!
