♪ When AKB48 Feels aren’t enough, who you gonna go to?

Nogizaka46! ♫

First of all, another Nogizaka single already?!! WTF Yasusu?! It’s already almost summer and NMB has yet to release a single for 2013, like, WTF?!

We want our seasonal NMB48 cool single. What are we supposed to shake it to this year? Did you run out of ideas? I mean you already did the virginity and the sex (Junjou) songs so what else is left? Maybe an STD single?!

Any-who~ Nogizaka 46 on the other hand are already ahead to their 6th single and as usual, the line-up is done solely by management!

I shudder at the prospect being applied to AKB48 as well. There would never come a day that we see Yukirin on the front lines, ever, if this were the same for AKB48. Sorry Nogizaka!

The decisions being left to management alone, means that they can fuck with the poor girls as much as they want and did they do it this time! Forget the drama going on in AKB48, apparently that wasn’t enough already so Yasusu decided to hit the rival group as well….hard!

How hard?

Think a none-senbatsu election AKB48 single where Acchan and Yuko are shafted to the third line back for some 10-20th place senbatsu ranker! Think of those two back-dancing to a Paruru/Meru centre single!

That’s what happened here in Nogizaka! I ain’t even kidding you all!

돈 크라이 마미 Don’t Cry Mommy

I have seen a fare share of disturbing and emo-inducing movies in my time (Thank you Japan, Korea and France) and I thought I was at the point where nothing could move me like I have never been moved before. I mean come on, who could do worse than Noboru-D or Martyrs (2008)? I was prepared for anything cinema would send my way. Well, at least I thought I was.

Then I watched this movie!

The despair, the feels! Oh God the despair!!

If anyone ever asked me what it feels like, what it really feels like to lose the one thing most important in their life. If they asked what they would do were they to lose that one precious thing, I would but one thing and one thing only – point them to this movie!

And here is a thing. All who are into K-entertainment are very familiar with how dramatic Korea is. Knowing that, then the creators going so far as to force you to care for the characters so much in the beginning of the movie then BAM! The train of misery hits and keeps hitting until the inevitable WORST END! And all through out the course of the movie one has to put up with all the over-dramatic feels!

No seriously, Korean actors and actresses are so good that they blur the lines between great acting and over-dramacting (I don’t care if this isn’t a word, I will make it into one)! They slice and dice the most challenging of scripts like hot knife in butter and make the best written of stories come off as a comedic joke.

They are that good!

And I can’t say that it’s just from experience because the age differences don’t seem to matter!

Thinking of this and then adding in the genre/theme of this particular movie and I was in for a ride of my hellish life! It has been months since I saw this movie and it is now that I decide to write about it. Let me just say now that it’s not that I forgot about it or that it wasn’t relevant.

No!

I wasn’t ready!

I think I am now though so let’s do this. Oh by the way, there are still no subs for this movie and the ratio of my knowledge of Japanese to Korean is like 1000:1. I ain’t even bluffing! But despite this, I understood the movie because to hell with words, only 1 picture is worth 1000 of them after all.
