Lemon Angel's Cameo in Project A-ko Cinderella Rhapsody (1988)


Lemon Angel Cameo (1988)






Lemon Angel make a small cameo in Project A-ko 3 near to the end of the film, where they are featured in the movies.  In the official Japanese version Lemon Angel are voiced by themselves (Tomo Sakurai, Erika Shima and Miki Emoto.)





In the English dubbed version the characters voices are dubbed by 3 of the female cast Cathy Weseluck, Lynda Boyd and  Venus Terzo, basically the same people who do
the main casts voices in the Anime, as most voice-over artists are versatile.  

Miki Ito & Miki Emoto?


A-ko, B-ko and C-ko



The IMDB (Internet Movie Database) confuses Miki Ito and Miki Emoto's roles so it might confuse some people, but i will and shall correct them by blogging the correct information on my blog.  
Miki Ito was part of the main cast, Miki Emoto (Lemon Angel) makes a cameo in the film as herself. Miki Ito is the voice of A-ko in the Japanese original version of the film franchise.





So what basically happens is Miki Emoto wants to have her way with Erika Okushima (Lesbianism), something that never happens in Lemon Angel's series as in the Lemon angel series
none of the girls find each other attractive, they are usually attracted to men and men only. 






To be honest that mostly happened in the second generation of Lemon Angel
featured in the Manga.  Also to point out they seem to be in some kind of future world, usually they fantasize but this time they are featured in the cinema, which seems to porn-like, they are assumed to be sex-symbols of some sort.  I am surprised they were not featured as singers, and the weird thing is they were a girl group back then and even though they made a cameo in the film, they never did any music for it.  







Instead You hear the vocals of Michie Tomizawa best known as the original
voice of Sailormars in Sailormoon, which is why most SM fans seem to flock to the Project A-ko series, as she portrays C-ko.  


There are three main characters in the Anime,  A-ko, B-ko and C-ko.  All three characters have similar names, the Anime is very funny and is unique.




So Miki throws Erika on the bed and Erika ask's her what she is going to do to her. 



Miki tells her to be quiet, all the men in the audience slobber over Erika.  Erika screams at Miki not to touch her.



Tomo Sakurai butts in saying sorry and tells the men who are watching the movie that an emergency has taken place, and that the film currently taking place has been stopped.  
Which means the film featuring Lemon Angel in the film must be filmed live.



All three of Lemon Angel tells everyone in the audience to vocalize, then the film moves back to all the fighting action scenes which features loads of smashing, and things breaking.

Lemon Angel English Translation?

Lemon Angel English Subs?


I really think we need a English translation of Midnight Lemon Angel, so i'm going to attempt to translate a few episodes all by myself in WMM which i might add is the "worst" but it'll have to do.  I'm a little "lost" in translation so everything might have to be re-worded.



(Oh, how i hate Windows Movie Maker, but it'll have to do)



Example:


Tomo Sakurai: But do not studying or playing watch our program!

(Yes, this just doesn't sound right...)



Re-worded by me:

Tomo Sakurai:  Do not study or play watch our program!

Young Lemon Angel (レモンエンジェル)

Young Lemon Angel

Here are some photographs of Lemon Angel when they were younger.




Erika Okushima/Shima
You'd probably never guess that this was Erika Okushima what a lil cutie.


Miki Emoto/Okushima/Mikiko Emoto

It seem's Miki has had short hair most of her life, if you get the pun.

Tomo Sakurai/Tomoe Hatta

Yes, Tomo has been rocking those pig-tails since she was a lil girl.

Lemon Angel Theme

Theme of Lemon Angel


The Theme of Lemon Angel is the main theme of the group recorded by Miki, Erika and Tomo.  The song is also used for the opening of the Anime.   In the official video the girls can be seen wandering around Japan, doing aerobics, eating at a bakery, riding bicycles, and recording the actual song in a booth and eating crepes, the film ends with Tomo, Miki and Erika using a video recorder to record one another then all three begin to lip sync to the music.

Angel Fish

     
Angel Fish




          






Angel Fish was a song released by Lemon Angel in 1989 and was featured on the album Lemon Angel 3rd, it features vocals from all three members , Miki, Erika and Tomo.  In the official video you see Tomo, Miki and Erika at a water theme park, swimming and splashing under the waves and also riding various attractions.  Whilst singing they repeat the word "Fishu" instead of Fish... it's a good thing they didn't choose Sakana as it doesn't go well with Lemon.

Sabrina (1993)

Sabrina (1993)


After leaving Lemon Angel, three years later Tomo Sakurai had joined another girl group called Sabrina, although this was no ordinary girl group the group was formed specially for a game called 誕生-DEBUT which was featured on the Sega Saturn and PC, according to information given the game was released in 1994. The game gives of a similar variation to Lemon Angel as there are three main characters, the game is generally about being a idol, ect.  




Sabrina - Forever Dreams



Back to Sabrina the group, they released a debut CD entitled FOREVER DREAMS with eight tracks listed on the CD.




Now i can't be too sure why Tomo Sakurai had left Lemon Angel, but she jumped straight into this group, also to add rumor has it that Lemon Angel didn't quite get on well together which i think may be true as Tomo has nothing to do with Erika and Miki to this day, and then in 1994 Tomo had became a famous voice actress after she had been given a role in Macross which as we know shot off her career in voice acting.


Music Listing:

(On one of the Game CDS released)
