How can they stare in each others’ eyes so closely and for so long and get away without
side effects falling in love?!!
So anyway, the best ever segment to grace the face of AKBINGO!
is was back last week. yes, this is last week’s episode. This week’s is already out by the way. And it might be because of the time that has passed since the last AKBINGO episode (was that 2011?) but for some reason the gay seemed much stronger this this one!
Also while I was waiting for Sayaka to show up and I thought I had gotten her in the form of Kojimako at the end there, turns out that this was the most flawless Danso episode so far. Even though Juri’s part would have suited someone with more height to them, I was actually looking forward to her cosplay more from the previews of this episode. I really loved her Danso and I don’t understand why it didn’t do for the others.
Yes even Kojimako was actually great. Obviously if she kept up that stupid character personality from the beginning to end, she would have failed, hard! But when she pulled that Face-Heel-Turn card towards the end and she became serious I actually found my heart skipping a bit.
Yeah, this Danso was just so good!
As usual I will start from the first girl to the last in the order they appeared in…
First of all AKBINGO! Was like, Do you remember this?! As they showed us the lovely memories of the awesome Danso that have come before. And I am like, bitch pls, like I could ever forget! Every time I watch an AKBINGO! episode ever since then I’ve hoping for the preview for the next to be a Danso episode yo!
And as for those new fans who have probably had all previous episodes downloaded but needed an excuse to see it, this was the moment that made them lose sleep in this past week trying to catch up, even if just for these episodes only.
As for us veterans who already knew what was in store, our bodies were ready!
Team K’s Abe Maria
First up, as if continuing the trend, was Team K. And who do we get as the rep? None other than Abe Maria. The only girl that was the closest thing in K to Sae and Sayaka and she so did not disappoint!
At first I thought she was cosplaying as Dracula and that Team A’s Shimazaki Haruka – Paruru was the girl that would be making Maria’s dead heart beat once again. yeah, I totally forgot about the Japanese culture and their Taxedo
Kamen Kaitou which was what she came as.
That thing she did as she started walking forward where she threw the mask to the side like a BOSS totally got me good! That nonsense look she wore. That short black hair. That height!
And that story! Even though it was generic as all hell, it was generic in a good kind of way. Paruru being a girl about to marry in a loveless marriage life and Maria being a thief who had come to steal her big ass Diamond ring but ending up stealing Paruru’s heart too in the process to save her from marrying in that kind of life was just too close to the heart to not fall all over for.
Those moves like the way she grabbed Maruru-hime by the waist and held her close. Then that eye-contact request by holding the chin – Ahhhhhhhhhh So perfect! No wonder Shio-Paruru couldn’t resist changing into Satou-Paruru! Like, did you see that smile she had on? Heavenly. I was with Izurina when she said she wanted Maria to kiss Paruru at that moment she took hold of Paruru’s chin and look straight into her eyes. It would have been perfect!
Seriously though, Paruru is quite cute when she smiles. Why doesn’t she do it often? Okay, lately she has been smiling more and I hope she keeps this up because if she does, then even if she wins No.1 next year I won’t have any gripes with her. And seeing the trend of the winners of Senbatsu lately in regards to age, Paruru is set to be the next in line next year, if we believe in the fact that Sashiko topped when she was 20. So did Mayuyu and Paruru will be 20 next year as well, right? But if it’s about years, then Yukirin might pull a Yuko at 23 and take it as well so…
Any way, getting back to Danso, Maria managed to grab herself 6 points of out ten. That’s 60%. Not bad at all. And the way she got all embarrassed when the act was over actually added to the charm me thinks.
And it looks like we have ourselves a second Tomoomi in Ami. She was so ready to have Maria’s babies! Not to forget Maachun who had her Danso Virginity stolen, well, where AKBINGO is concerned. If you remember, she has already experienced it in NMB’s Docking48 TV show and from none other than Sayanee herself. But she had never gotten an taste of this kind of Danso, let alone Mayuyu!
I ain’t gonna lie! If Juri was just a little bit taller, and maybe had a longer neck like say, Rena…Oh God, I just had a picture of Rena, with black hair, wearing these clothes…
Yeah, Juri was only this short away from being perfect and stealing the crown for the day! The concept was perfect. She had every thing down par but her build let her down. Other than that though, she was really flawless, even though she failed a bit there with the glasses. But that was actually the reason she even got that one vote which is quite the kicker.
Her partner here was fellow team B member Hashimoto Hikari. These two actually had that vibe that were one to see them outside, they wouldn’t be taken by anything else but a couple. Juri of course is those studious types that are more interested in book than going out on dates and showering their girls with affection. She is the kind that even though they don’t show it, you can just tell that they love their girl and would be the most loyal.
But as we all know, everything on this earth is waay easier compared to girls. Things have to be spelled out for them. Which was what was going on here with Hikari trying to get Juri to physically and audibly show that she loves Hikari.
Juri being the intellectual type obviously does everything by the book. Who could be anymore romantic than a person that has probably learned all there is on how to confess to a girl!
But of course even as romantic as her lines were, Juri’s build totally destroyed the moment. Maachun didn’t waste a moment making fun of her short arms as we saw LOL.
To me though I thought that it was an advantage more than a disadvantage. Short arms means less distance between Juri and her girl and it was these two that stole that ‘It’s all in the eyes’ moment for me.
So even if she came away with only 1 point out of 10, a pity point at that, I actually liked her cosplay more. Maybe it was because I was getting Ren-kun and Watanabe-sensei flashbacks and their ‘clean’ Danso.
What can I even say?! Last week was Mayuyu’s week! Seriously! The theme might not have been hers but she totally diced it to perfection for a girl like her in a role like that. That first time was a challenge without victory. But this one, this was a breeze for her to pull off despite the level of hardship. I mean Flower Guys are really hard to pull off. But Mayuyu made it seem so easy!
And of course once again Yukirin misses yet another moment of Mayu-kun’s shine. Why you gotta do this God, why?! But instead of Yukirin, we got Maachun pulling s selfcest, kinda, when she nearly wet herself at the sight of Mayu-niisan!
Just look at them! I sure hope they brought a change of underwear because no amount of perfume will save them! good thing for me that I was in the safety of my bedroom because let me tell you…
I was waiting for this moment as well. There is no way that I can hear Mayuyu’s voice and not recognise it and when I heard it in the preview, with Mukaichi Mion of all people, I knew I was in for a treat. And Mayuyu did not disappoint! Of course this was no Watanabe-sensei but she totally deserved the 10. Taking on the challenge od a Flowerboy and pulling it off was a great deal of achievement in and of itself.
So when you add in the scenario of Miion being that girl that always visits Mayu-niisan’s shop which means that they have known each other for a while but they aren’t you know, like that, what with the obvious age gap ( between the characters they are supposed to be), it makes for one of those forbidden couples that are just begging to be loved. Not to mentioned Mayu-niisan might actually already have a girlfriend. Ooh, this makes for some awesome drama, huh?
Interestingly, while usually in situations like this, the girl would have a crush on the Flower-boy, it seemed like Miion wasn’t like that and maybe actually it was Mayu-niisan that might have been developing feelings for Miion. then again maybe they both weren’t seeing each other in that light and it was at this moment that they realised it, finally.
The story goes that Miion was being picked on by girls at her school telling her things like she will never have a boyfriend. Maybe because she wasn’t girly enough? or was it because she was ugly? Either way you know how the story goes, it is pretty common in fantasy stories like TV dramas or movies and anime so it shouldn’t be that much of a mystery.
Mayu-niisan of course has to save Miion from going down that path by making her realise her real beauty. Add in the fact that flowers and romantic bodily actions were involved during all this, then there is no doubt that Mayuyu was taking this home!
10/10! That’s 100% yo! First ever perfect score that not even Sae-man could pull off back then. And in the process, more hearts were left dead in the wake of one Watanabe Mayu, showing the younglings how much far they still have to go.
Again, I was disappoint that Yukirin missed this. Though I have a feeling she was watching at home as well. I can only imagine her reaction as she ate some snack then Mayuyu walking on screen! Yep, some major cleaning had to have been done afterwards for sure.
Well, that actually actually pretty good! I have to confess that from the beginning I almost gave up thinking that this was the 2nd coming of Sayaka but Mako just went and pulled one on me with that last trap card she had hidden that would have made the King of game piss himself.
But before I go on, can I just ask what in god’s name that girl Haruka is?!! Is that smile for real?! That face! It looks like it was ripped right out of a page in a manga! Seriously look at that smile and the way her face transforms when she does! She totally just made my Smile Rankings that so far is topped by NMB’s Kadowaki Kanako and Tokyo girls’ Style’s Shyoji Mei.
I don’t why but I am just suck as sucker for smiles like those!
Now then going back to Kojimako, as I said her character in the beginning of an annoying player boy turned me off instantly. And I actually quite liked the two’s acting here. We were so deceived by her annoying character that when she turned serious and it turned out that she actually had met Haruka before, was in love with her and still held those feelings for her even until now…You are lying if you are saying that your heart wasn’t moved during this moment.
Seriously, she looked great too as a guy and if it hadn’t been for that first act, she would have been a contender for No.1 against Mayuyu. That was such a girly way to carry oneself if they were a boy too which added to the blow. Even with that awesome fate-heel-turn at the end couldn’t have saved her.
Looking on the bright side though, without her pulling a Sayaka, things would have been too perfect and a bit boring even with Juri-sensei’s 1 point! So I guess she deserved the 30% she got. That maybe not seem a lot but after dampening our spirits with that first half only to manage to bring us back to happy mode with that trick at the end, she did really well.
Yep, Danso is still got it! There is no way it will be dethroned any time soon as the favourite segment for AKBINGO. Well, that is until AKBINGO! decide to do that segment from NOGIBINGO! You know which one I am talking about ^_- you sly Reader you! But of course if there is actually someone who doesn’t know, I am talking about THIS!
Any way, that is that. Danso is still the best thing ever and Mayuyu wins with FLAWLESS VICTORY! They should add her in the next Motal Kombat LOL…
