SUPERCELL

Hi, there.. It’s been a while since my last post 😀
Today I’m gonna give a review about one of my favorite Japanese doujin music group, SUPERCELL..

First, Let’s meet the member. Supercell is led by composer and lyricst, Ryo-san who produces the music and write the lyric for their songs. The other members are :

  2. Huke (illustration)
  3. Redjuice (illustration)
  4. Suga (illustration)
  5. Maque (illustration and animation)
  6. Yoshiki Usa at Wooserdesign (design)
  7. Hei8ro (Heihachiro) (support in illustration and photography)
  8. Guitar (support in illustration)
  9. Crow (support)
  10. Golv (support)
  11. 119 (Hikeshi) (illustration) – Former Member

Why I called them doujin music group? Dōjin music (同人音楽?), also called otokei dōjin (音系同人?) in Japan, is a sub-category of dōjin activity. Dōjin are basically non-official self-published Japanese works which can be based on official products or completely original creations. Such products are sold online on specialized sites, on the author’s own sites and in conventions such as the very popular Comic Markets.

Supercell formed in 2007
Supercell
 is a Japanese 11-member music group led by composer and lyricist Ryo which formed in 2007 as a dōjin music group. Supercell started out by making use of the Hatsune Miku singing synthesizer to produce vocals for songs submitted to the Nico Nico Dougavideo sharing website. The popularity of the songs led the group to release the independent self-titled album Supercell at Comiket 74 in August 2008. Supercell made their major debut with Sony Music Entertainment Japan with the professional release of their Supercell album in March 2009, which was updated with more songs and a DVD. Supercell released their first single, “Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari“, in August 2009 with vocals by Nagi, herself a vocalist primarily known for her uploads to Nico Nico Douga under the name Gazelle.[1] “Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari” was the first release by Supercell not to use Hatsune Miku for the vocals and was used as the ending theme song for the 2009 Bakemonogatari anime series. Supercell released three more singles in 2010, one being a split single with fellow dōjin musician Kz of Livetune. Supercell released their second album Today Is A Beautiful Day in March 2011.

Supercell has released two albums so far, which are Supercell” (2009) and “Today Is A Beautiful Day” (2011). And, here’s my top 10 supercell songs (just my own opinion) :

  1. Sayonara Memories
  2. Perfect Day
  3. Hero
  4. Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari
  5. LOVE & ROLL
  6. Utakata Hanabi
  7. When the first love ends
  8. World is mine
  9. Liars Parade
  10. Owari e Mukau Hajimari no Uta
And here is  Supercell’s new album,-Today Is A Beautiful Day- track list :
  1. 終わりへ向かう始まりの歌 (Owari e Mukau Hajimari no Uta)
  2. 君の知らない物語 (Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari)
  3. ヒーロー (Hero)
  4. Perfect Day
  5. 復讐 (Fukushuu)
  6. ロックンロールなんですの (Rock ‘n Roll Nan Desu no)
  7. LOVE & ROLL

Meet The BC 1

Belum lama ini terjadi pergantian di pucuk pimpinan Direktorat Bea dan Cukai. Posisi BC 1 yang dahulu dipegang oleh Bapak Thomas Sugijata, sekarang dijabat oleh Bapak Agung Kusmandono yang secara resmi dilantik pada 25 April 2011 di Kantor Pusat Bea dan Cukai, Rawamangun.

Sayangnya, aku berada di kanwil Banten yang lokasinya jauh, so enggak bisa menikmati jamuan pisah-sambut dirjen BC ini. Tapi diluar dugaan, Pak Agung sendiri yang datang ke tangerang untuk mengunjungi KPPBC TMP Merak (yang berada di bawah Kanwil Banten). Beliau datang untuk menggelar konfrensi  pers tentang hasil tangkapan bidang P2 (penyidikan dan penindakan) atas sepatu ilegal senilai kurang lebih 4 Milyar Rupiah. FYI, jumlah sepatu yang diamankan ada sekitar 5000-an pasang sepatu, berarti tiap pasang sepatu harganya Rp800.000,-. (sepatu biasa, gak pake nuklir, NOS, ataupun GPS).

sepatu mahal, sepatu mahal... jangan dibeli

Hari rabu, 4 Mei 2011, rombongan pejabat Kanwil Banten, termasuk Pak Nasar Salim (Kakanwil) Pak Gery Korimba (Kabag UKI), Pak Purwidi (Kabid Audit) Pak Mulyanto (Kasubag Rumah tangga) dan saya (siapa saya? 🙂 )  serta beberapa pegawai dilingkungan kanwil banten berangkat ke kantor pelayanan Merak.

susana di dalam bus

Setelah menempuh perjalan selama dua jam, akhirnya kami mendarat di merak pada pukul 12.30 waktu setempat. ternyata pak dirjen belum samapi di lokasi, sehingga kita da waktu untuk ISHOMA . Sekitar pukul 14.30, pak dirjen sampai di lokasi dan konfrensi pers dengan para wartawan (dari berbagai media cetak dan elektronik).

sampai di merak

Baru pertamakali ini aku melihat konfrensi Pers secara Live. Ternyata gak gampang jadi public figure, tipa kata yang terucap dari mulutnya bisa mengakibatkan pencitraan terhadap instansi. Alhamdulillah Pak Agung cerdas dalam memilih kata-kata, dan tidak gampang terpancing jebakan wartawan. Acara ini ditutup dengan mendatangi lokasi penimbunan barang bukti pelanggaran

Setelah Konferensi Pers selesai, kami semua di berikan wejangan oleh Pak Agung yang intinya kami harus :

  1. Tidak boleh KKN
  2. Tidak boleh KKN
  3. Tidak boleh KKN
  4. Bekerja Profesional
  5. (lupa)– gak mau asal tulis, 😛

Dan Acara pun berlanjut saampaai malam. Baru sekitar pukul 20.00 Waktu Indonesia bagian Merak, para Pak Agung meninggalkan KPPBC TMP Merak, yang kemudian diikuti oleh rombongan Kanwil Banten.
Perjalanan Merak-BSD kami tempuh selama 2 jam..

tadaima~~ , tte.. sudah jam 10 malam..
oyasumi..
