H!P on iTunes UK

I was writing up my Berserk review last night but became slightly distracted by the fabric for my minamicon cosplay, so I’ll hoepfully finish that in the next few days so it’s in a semi-readable condition at least.

More importantly, I spotted last week that a large number of H!P artists have finally been added to iTunes UK.  The list includes:

  • Morning Musume
  • Berryz Koubou (Up to Dschinghis Khan)
  • C-ute (listed as Cute)
  • GAM
  • Maki Goto
  • Natsume Abi
  • Aya Matsuura (name is in Kana, try searching for her songs in Romaji)
  • Koharu Kusumi (PaPancake single)
  • Kirarin Revolution Song Selection 4 Album
  • MilkyWay (TAN!TAN!TAN! single only)
  • Buono! (Gachinko de Ikou! single only)
