Though I am not sure if it’s AKB48 or just Watanabe Ent but I am sure AKB Management had a say in the matters (They just didn’t come up with the idea, that’s for damn sure) but anyway, to the un-initiated, Kashiwagi Yuki AKA Yukirin AKA YUKI-REISOLE (her name in WACK), my Goddess and Kami of Kami (seriously, I have stan’d since 2009!), just up and decided to challenge herself and do a transfer position into WACK company (coincidentally owned by a Watanabe…coincidence? I think not!)
Again, if you don’t know, WACK is the company that groups like BiSH, BiS, GO TO THE BEDS, PARADISES, etc, belong too! In otherwards, an out of the ox kind of company that is on the other end of the idol spectrum compared to groups like AKB48 or H!P! I am still trying to wrap my mind around Yukirin belonging to such a group!
And it’s not just one but she is joining all of them!!! I know some fans were probably lost but I am not one of them! In fact, this surprise was a god send! Why? Because I have been clamouring for cooler Yukirin since BLACK-san from MAJISUKA GAKUEN! In fact, she spoke of this in one of her recent YouTube videos where she states that while she did not understand the character of Black and her being very different from the real person, she got lots of messages from people who became fans of hers because of the character of Black!
It is probably also another reason why she decided to challenge herself and try something different and change herself, which just happened to be the cool kids in the Idol world and those are the WACK groups!
But we knew all this, what I am writing this post for is the new information we got! First off are the new release dates now for the singles from all groups, which had to be postponed because of Yukirin emergency spinal surgery she underwent in Taiwan in the month of July! The singles will be released next month at a mere small price of less than 600 yen each! That’s less than €6 here! Simply unheard of!
Yeah sure they will be releasing 7 different singles at the same time but groups sell different versions every time and they charge over 1000 even for CDs only! Not sure what they are up to but all I know is that this is the first time I am buying any WACK single, but I am buying all 7 of them and the special collector’s box, which I believe will be around 40. So that’s 42+40 = 10000 yen including shipping!
That’s nothing for my Oshi!
Next up is the other shocking news that Watanabe-san announced along with the prices and release dates! First off, Yukirin is bringing the Sousenkyou with her to WACK! That’s right, there is going to be elections to choose the top 7 out of all the seven group members of WACK! In other words – The WACKVII!
Okay, that’s not the actual name (if they will have one) but WACK are getting their own Kami7 thing going soon, but why?! If your first thought was that it has something to do with Yukirin…
No, it wasn’t Yukirin’s idea! She doesn’t have that much power…yet! As we know WACK is run by one and only one person – Watanabe-san alone! But seems like he’s looking to expand and I mean, he has gotten help before from other people (like KURO-chan – who will be writing Yukirin’s new single) but here Yukirin is getting a bit more power!
Those WACKVII selected members? Well, Yukirin will be their producer!!!! You heard that right! I was shocked to say the least! If there are salty people who think she came to take over…well, why I would laugh at that (I don’t think Yukirin is there to stay! She’s just trying to get out of her comfort zone and change her image), this is sure to be fuel for their fire!
I just hope it doesn’t get bad! NMB48 Kennin was bad enough, I don’t want those days to come back again! And that was even within the 48 family! While I haven’t seen any fires, I sure haven’t been looking for them but I am not going out of my way to look either! I am tired of negativity!
Anyway, I am here for this wacky project and what it’s bringing to us! Almost release month! I am so buying all those singles! I wonder if it will be one Yukirin solo or if she will have multiple foe each group! Probably one but I really can’t wait!
She’s basically going to have seven different personalities because all these groups in WACK are all different! I can’t wait to see what she does! Seriously, 7 different cool Yukirins at the same time! How to handle all that awesomeness!
And finally, Yukirin went to this year’s TIF, even getting a VIP room for herself even though she was just a guest (THE POWER!) and funnily enough, the fans didn’t miss the number they gave her room (345) which of course if you are one of us, you know that number is most known for Sashiko (Sashihara Rino) Even Sasshi commented on it on twitter (LOL)!
Anyway, while there she watched all WACK performances like a hawk, almost like research and really, it definitely was and she says as such when she says she was inserting herself into their performances in her mind in kind of a mental exercise! I wonder how she went on, because I still can’t picture her into any of those group…well…maybe PARADISES!
This is kind of like a reversal and return of favour to when three members of BiSH came to watch her self-produced AKB48 concert way back in May! The members were Chittiii, Atsuko and Momoko!
After the performances, the last of which was BiSH’s (where they sang the same song six times!!!) the girls went to take some pre-cure photos! Like, even if Yukirin seems to have favs from other groups, she’s definitely bonding more with BiSH!
I mean, shipping her with Aina-kun doesn’t help in the least and even she knows it and probably Aina-kun will definitely make it into the WACKVII and we might get couple performances from that project (make it happen Watanabe-san!)!
Anyway, that’s the little bit of update from that YUKRIN x WACK one of a kind project!
I am really looking forward to this!
And what’s this?!! Two of these series are horror?! How not to win?!! And this all within the next month! I don’t know what we did, but it sure did please the Yuri Goddesses out there!
Firstly, we have the final season of DICKINSON. Now, I for you would have totally been fine with the way Season 2 ended but hey, who can say NO to Hailee kissing girls!?!! Couldn’t be me that’s for sure! Of course this means, and it is already apparent from the trailer, that there is going to be more unnecessary drama, as if they didn’t settle all that in the second season nut they have to introduce more redundant drama for fillers.
Oh well, as long as they work shit out and we end on a lovely note I don’t care what they do! If it’s too much, there’s the power of a forward button! Final Season of DICKINSON begins Nov 5th!
In order of caps, next up we have a very uninspired televised version of the hit teen horror flick I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER! Sure seems like it goes beat for beat as the original movie, plot-wise at least! With the different characters, most interesting of which is the twin leading girls, I guess there could be a surprise in there but this is Amazon Prime here…I have a very disappointing history with Amazon Prime Originals because of all their content that I have seen, every single one of them have been disappointing! I don’t know what it is about them but there is always something missing with their content!
It’s kind of like someone spending years on a painting and just when they have almost completed it they decide to just leave that last part only as a sketch without inks! I don’t know, they always come short no matter what I see of their content!
Now, sure this is based off of an already existing concept and it is a horror series and there is always cheat codes when it comes to horror (mostly because it is my favourite genre so I am less picky) but this is Amazon! Will this be the first time I am impressed? We shall see!
One think I know for sure they have already outdone themselves with from the trailers it’s the lesbian twin thing! Very, very rare for those to come by and when we get one, they are always fan favourites so here’s to fingers crossed!
Curiously though, I couldn’t place the relationships here. Seems like everyone has a boyfriend, so I am kind of confused! Friends with benefits and secrets or will there be something of substance there?!
Also, I am kind of conflicted because as a horror fan I want blood, but also I kind of want a happy end relationship, well, a gay one! Either way it goes, if I get blood and some gayness, I am already a happy camper! Less chance for Amazon to screw up with this one but we shall see!
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is already streaming from today with, from I can see, four episodes out so far! I have yet to start watching as I am waiting for my days off!
Finally, here comes our other Dina!!!!! Oh, how I missed thee, Dina! I haven’t seen you since you got completely covered in your boyfriend’s brains in I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS! Seriously, if anyone knows of any other projects of Sofia Bryant, let me know!
While I await your replies, I will be checking out her new Series (at least I think it is a Series) from new streamer Peacock titled – THE GIRL IN THE WOODS starring another new community representor in actress Stephanie Scott! She is in another new film, THE LAST THING MARY SAW, which has an interesting clip on YouTube to say the least!
Modern day Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Only it’s monster slayer this time around? With a robot arm like she was the damn Terminator?! A metal arm with a stake!?!! Totally gay?! Making out with her bestie and one of the side-kicks!?! An interesting gay other side-kick who is tots funny and has a killer fashion!? Sign my soul up please!
Like, seriously, Sofia and Sophia (LOL)…Lillis, were done so dirty by Netflix when their show got cancelled and we never got to see their relationship develop, especially after that cliff hanger, that I hope Peacock were paying attention then and are ready to give Sofia a bit of closure here at least!
Or maybe they could just get things out of the way from the get go instead of waiting until the end of the series in the hopes of a second season and thus using their love as a worm! Well, seeing as they have already showed their kiss, which I hope is one of many, in the trailer, here’s to hoping that there is a lot of content of the two to look forward to!
THE GIRL IN THE WOODS starts streaming in a week’s time on the 21st! Best believe it, I will be there watching day by day! I wonder if it will ne binge style like Netflix, few episodes first then weekly like Amazon or weekly like TV! Either way it is intended, I will consume! Sure it looks the least budget from the other two but I have a feeling it might be the most loved, relationship wise anyway! I know DICKINSON already has Hailos salivating (Hailee stans)!
But all this is speculation!
Ah~ What a time to be alive! I am just waiting for that teaser trailer for the second season of WARRIOR NUN for my heart to start hitting limits now!
No, like, seriously!!! When was the last content we had from Japanese Cinema!?! And who is that?!! YAMADA ANNA!!
And she is…she is kissing a girl!!! Lie, what dimension did I wake up in!?! Is it finally time!? Has Japan finally come back with a vengeance!! Are we finally over that death stage no/compromised content!?!
What a a time to be alive!!!
And is this, like, my favourite kind of story they are going for? You know, the one where there is a choice between a boy and a girl?! Like, unless you are new here, you will know how I love those stories!
Blame Kannazuki no Miko! That anime is the one that infected me with the disease when Chikane totally won Himeko over Souma! I don’t know about anyone else but I prefer a fight instead of free platter service! There is a choice so when she chooses the girl you know it is a legit choice!
Ah, is this a dream?!
BTW, thank you to my old friend and one of my longest Readers for this recommendation. I was out of the country at the time and I would not have found out about this in time if at all, given that I was not even following the official channel that had the trailers up! You know who you are, you lovely person you…
THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS BEING THERE FOR ME!
Basically from what I got from the trailers, Ai (Yamada Anna) is in lust (the obsession was strong with this one) with a guy (who the movie is titled after BTW, red flag) but either the Dude is a player or he doesn’t care for Ai at all and is actually interested in another person – Miyuki (Imou Haruka).
Out of jealousy (and stupidity, but in our favour) Ai decides to steal Miyuki away from the Dude by making her love her instead! If you have seen these types of baby plans to make you love interest jealous by feigning being in a relationship with someone else, you know things never, NEVER, ever go according to plan!
Now, the train-wreck wasn’t in any of the trailers but you just know it is coming! In fact there are several ways this can go horribly wrong but the one that I am interested in most and which I see hints of from all I’ve seen is the one that services our side!
That is that fake love turns into real love, either from Ai’s side (which I doubt very much and if it does happen I shall give this movie all the awards) or from Miyuki’s side, when she falls for Ai instead for reals! They released a clip where Ai and Miyuki are at a karaoke bar and the way Miyuki was staring lovingly at Ai to the point of even losing attention and then after wards when it was Miyuki’s turn we also saw Ai’s own look!
Oh and speaking of that karaoke, if you listen closely one of the lines Ai sings are ‘BE MY GIRL’, like, talk about subtlety being thrown out of the window! Now, she either picked it intentionally, all a part of her plan to steal Miyuki’s heart or she did it unconsciously and then it affecting Miyuki making her fall for Ai even more!
And also there was another clip which I thought I saw but now I am wondering if I dreamed it, where Miyuki had a fit (I think she’s diabetic given her shots) and the way Ai was taking care of her…like, they were so lovers by then! I mean an image exists as you see above so I most definitely don’t think it was only in my dreams but for the life of me I can’t find the clip!
Then there is the fact that Ai was bragging to the Dude how she and Miyuki had sex, well, she said they did it but really, one can only mean one thing when they say ‘we did it’, am I right!
And that kiss! Sure it is still a ‘drama kiss’ but still better than a whole shit load of fake kisses out there in the Asian drama club! very surprising though that they not only put it all over the trailers but even in the very first teaser! That’s another red flag!
Which brings me to some…
Like I mentioned, this movie’s title is the name of the Dude Ai is in love with! This Dude is in love with Miyuki and one of the outcomes of the failed plan is for Miyuki to end up with Dick because I don’t see Ai winning this given the dirty ricks she pulled!
But then again, we see her and Dude almost kissing and the whole shenanigans from her are so she could have the Guy to herself! Basically this movie revolves around Dick! A very large flag!
Finally the fact that Ai and Miyuki’s love is actually fake, given that Ai is only pretending to love Miyuki and when Miyuki finds out, I don’t think this is gonna be a pleasant moment! Will she still love Ai when she finds out? Will her love be stronger that the betrayal?
Then there is the other fact of Miyuki’s disease! Will that be used for ‘emotional’ value towards the climax?! I sure hope not! We have had a pretty good record so far of very low records of ‘BURY YOUR GAYS’ clichés!
Don’t ruin this Japan! You are treading on very thin ice as it is so please, please for the love of all that is Yuri, please do this right! I beg of you!
Enough with the pessimism though, YAMADA ANNA KISSING A GIRL!!! Sure she’s been in relevant roles a bit before (SAKI, MISUMISOU, etc) but this a legit relevant role!
I am going all in even with all the flags! I don’t care, whatever happens I have immunity already from my experience anyway! I will just flag Japan some more for future rating!
Oh, how I have starved for more Luna Wedler gay content since the dawn of time (BLUE MY MIND) and after what feels like an eternity, I finally get some!
But at a cost!
This movie is an acquired taste and I do not recommend it, like, at all! Even I who considered themselves a Veteran when it comes to content, was really put off by this movie! I seriously consider you staying away if you are not a hardcore Luna fan! I was totally disgusted by the events of the movie that this is all I am going to say about that!
I got my Luna content with her making out with girls left and right but at what cost?! I am most certainly not adding this to my collection! Disgusting!
But Luna though, and that hair style!! Platinum blonde really does suit her! Now if only I could get some Zoe content too! I haven’t seen her since that one episode of KILLING EVE and even though I stumbled upon a certain movie of her and Luna together (before BMM), I want more from these two!
Dear Germany, please make it happen!
