And Nogizaka is at it again! New single means new concept meaning new formation, new centre and new faces! I don’t know about you guys but I really love this concept NGZ is going for these days. Even though I know so little to none of some of the new faces, I am still excited overall with the formation. This is the power of change! I am no longer even bothered by the fact that Ikoma hasn’t centred a single since forever or that Hori only had a one time run.
The most important thing is the Centre of course and this time around, it is none other than the beauty herself Nanase taking on the challenge and having her chance at domination! She is flanked by Shiraishi and Hashimoto (Again?! I thought we were about change!).
The next change comes in the formation.
Say goodbye to the Eight Deities and hello to the new Five Deities! I guess the other three could not recover from the damage dealt by Miona in the 7th single…If you know what I mean ^_-
I personally would have liked to see a change in the 2-10 but other than Sayuringo, everything stayed the same there. Oh well. Kind of like the fact though that Captain and Wakatsuki-sama were called after each other and are right close too in placing. Seems like Yasusu is a shipper too ^^ Also my heart skipped a bit when Miona was called right after Ikoma-chan but sadly, just like Mayuki, the top 5 formation is fucked up so Miona is like on the south pole to Ikoma-chan’s north –_-
Third, four members lost their senbatsu virginity for the 8th single. I almost cried too actually, if it weren’t for that Kazumi. But later on that. Any way, we even got another 2nd Gen finally to help Miona feel at home and get some pressure off of her too. Really, good decision makings going on with Nogizaka! Seriously, I sometimes wonder if Yasusu has like, split personalities! I mean how can he make such great decisions for some groups and really bad ones for the others?! I guess I have no choice but to blame AKS. I bet Yasusu has different things on his mind for the girls but since AKB is grown out of his 1P grip, there is nothing that can be done. Oh well…
That Kazumi man, look at the way she wipes the girl’s tears and tension away within seconds and get this…she wasn’t even present! She was on the phone and she managed to brings smiles on everyone’s face in a situation like this! And then when she finally showed up, of course she was back at it again.
I love her. Really, I love all the girls that make people happy!
I can’t wait to see the way Nishino shines in her own way in the next single. Miona sure did in Baretta so Nishino is definitely going to kick major butt! Nogizaka’s singles too have been awesome so far so I have no worries. Even if they suck, somehow I know Nishino will command them to not suck!
