Miki Honoka (Takane)
Aoyama Misato (Mika)
So, for some reason I couldn’t finish watching the 4hr video of Janken (Stopped when Yukirin was defeated in the Top 16) before I went to start on the second part of RH (100-1). That as well I haven’t finished yet. I haven’t watched the Making Of yet neither have I finished the first Disc (100-76) but I have a galore of caps already, as per usual, but those will have to wait until I finish the whole thing before I post all of them (prepare your bandwidth). But for now, I am only mention those things that caught my eye most.
Yeah, that just happened! Sadako just got P’OWN’D by the new kawaii ghost on the block – Aya!
Any way this is during yet another promotion of Aoi and Ayami’s new horror movie based on the Project Zero/Fatal Frame games. The event took place in Shibuya, right under the 109 building. Actually these videos, are the source of that question I mentioned in the earlier post about what it felt like kissing another girl.
And well, none other than Sadako, voted current most scary ghost in Japan, made her surprise guest appearance, which I was really hoping to happen the way Ayami mentioned her almost in every interview. Well, Sadako showed up, and in style too but there was something off about her. She looked really small which kind of disappointed me because I was expecting the real Sadako to show up. To those who don’t know, the real (current) Sadako is the very one and only Hashimoto Ai!
Sadly this was no Ai. It’s probably another Junior Idol behind the mask hair. Aoi couldn’t resist making fun of her of course, calling her cute due to her pint size. I was laughing when Sadako whipped around at that. I was expecting a showdown of curses to happen when Aya has to come to the rescue of her love.
Any way moving on Sadako being Aya’s Senpai (in that Sadako was done by Kadokawa too) came over to congratulate Aya on her movie, a movie she apparently watched and thought it very scary. In fact she said that she found Aya scarier than herself.
Now I really want to see this movie!
And on top of that, she was so impressed that she passed on the title of scariest girl to Aya. After shaking hands with Aya (In a really creepy way) she was asked to say something to Aya. She leaned in to whisper (That’s how she talks) the words into her ear but instead ended up giving Aya a hug instead. A hug which she followed up on with a kiss!
I guess she couldn’t resist the Aya curse. I mean she had to know from watching the movie that anyone that kissed ended up dead but she did it anyway. Well, the paramedic had to come in and stretcher her away…
But this is Sadako we are talking about here so she of course was up and about and back for more (Having fallen in lust with Aya cause no one can resist the Aya curse, it is strong!) and the three ended up pausing for a three-shot.
Now while that is all and good, I can’t not talk about Ayami and Aoi to. Seriously these two have got to be separated pronto or they might end up getting married and having babies soon. That eye sex and side glances and shy smiles are getting out of control! Then the interviewer went on to praise Ayami’s Aya’s beauty calling her a beauty within the beauty (She is real Bijin isn’t she tho?). Aoi completely agreed 100% making poor Ayami so embarrassed. Seriously these two, I can’t wait to watch their chemistry translated on screen!
Then of course there is the next Project Zero/Fatal Frame game coming out the day after release day. Another trailer is up and about on YouTube and we get some new scenes from that too. I really hope they release an EN version because I will so buy a WiiU just to play this game! But since that is least likely to happen any time soon, I will be raiding YouTube for playthroughs. Please don’t let me down YT.
Any way, hit the jump for more caps, the game trailer and this interview vids…In the meantime, I am off to start reading Sarah Waters’ new monster book – The Paying Guests, that just came out this Tuesday. Fingersmith has yet to be de-throned as my favourite read evar! And her other books follow it (except that one not gay one that shan’t be named)
Yes, that’s actress Sasaki Nozomi. Yes, that’s Annin (Iriyama Anna) and yes, they are going to be in the same drama about a hostess club titled Kurofuku Monogatari! Two of the beauties of the whole 48G starring in the same drama with equally as hot actresses is one for must watch award! The drama starts in October and will be on Fridays so do look out for that, I know I definitely will ^^
But anyway, that is not why I am reblogging , well kinda reblogging Maddie’s post over at Kashiwagi Yuki blog, nope! Let’s have a look at an excerpt from that post and then you will have an idea…
Following the tournament, Yukirin wrote on 755 and answered a few questions.
Yukirin mentioned she thought her name wouldn’t be called for the 38th single.
She was asked why she apologized to Sayanee. Yukirin said it’s cause she wanted Sayanee to solo debut. She felt like she robbed an important opportunity from the juniors.
Yukirin also mentioned about why she doesn’t declare her desires.
All of my rant posts I have been trying to convey this exact way of Yukirin as response to all those negative views that twist Yukirin’s kindness and the way she tackles situations into some negative thing! Some going even so far as to quit and dump her as their Oshi! It seems that it has gotten so bad that they even went as far as telling her these things!
But I already said my due on this issue and it seems some people’s minds will never be changed. And if they don’t see the light that Yukirin is that different from anyone else, that she is that good, that she thinks of others that much more than she does herself, that she is just as human as all of us only she handles things differently, in a way that will not hurt other people, I have nothing more to say to them except that they are right in moving on from Yukirin because they don’t deserve her!
I am so happy that she didn’t write an essay explaining herself to answer these…these questions! I am glad she put it in simple sentences like that. It should make clear her stance on things and how she truly is, to those that still didn’t understand her!
And yet what hurts me, and probably her, is that she doesn’t get rewarded for this, even her fans (though now I am questioning their validity) are questioning her behaviour but not only that, even as she wants to accomplish something for AKB, almost no new members ever mention her as their favourite senpai. Even if it seems to change when they spend some time in AKB(And probably get to meet her thus knowing her better) it is then that they start mentioning her name but never new members. I don’t think there is one in Team 8 that has her as the Senpai they respect at all. Maybe I missed a few but it really hurts. Some respect Shuu, or Miorin even the three musketeers but not her.
This world is really cruel!
Any way, I hope this answer finally puts this dumb discussion of her intentions/motivations (or luck there of) to rest and separates the fake fans from the real fans! Better to have few true fans (Never truer in her case) than fake fans as far as I am concerned!
Any way, yeah, that’s that!
PS: Thanks to Willmark and Maddie for your individual help in me finding out about this ^^
So, in case you have missed everything that has been going on today, the Janken Tourny happened a few hours ago and yo yo yo!I think like 90% of the Fandom came away with a re-kindled flame for the Family no matter how long one has been following the group! Seriously, this Janken was serious business! If anyone still has any doubts about Janken rigs, I have nothing to say to thee!
Without of course pouring water on anything, the winner of the Janken, to either get a solo single or a solo concert if they are already debuted soloists, was Milky. That is Watanabe Miyuki of NMB48 Team BII/SKE48 Kennin! Since I used to love her during the B days, I am happy for her. And she does have a bit of experience in solos so I am not worried in the least.
But that isn’t all. Despite the many worries of there not being a performance for the new COOL single, that didn’t mean that we can’t get an announcement and Jesus, did we get an announcement! The names kept on rolling and rolling to the point of me thinking that they are gonna pull one on us and announce every single member in the group. Luckily, we stopped at 32. Which is really, really still a lot! I shudder to think of the screen time each member will be getting, especially those in the lower numbers (Like you know who). The single is to be Double Centred by of course Mayuyu and…
wait for it…
wait for it…
That’s right! The one and only Miyawaki Sakura! The other No.2 Kagoshima Princess in HKT, Our Yukirin being the Kagoshima Queen and No.2 of AKB. Quite the similarities these two have it’s almost too scary! Sakura, the girl that should have been(before Sasshi) should be (since it isn’t Sasshi) the centre of HKT singles but has been denied since the early days. The girl that has actually written her frustrations about this herself on her blog (Read It Here). Finally, she is finally getting Justice served her!
Sure Yukirin is still suffering under the boot and has yet to see the daylight which I guess made those Up there guilty when they saw how unfair they have been to both these Kagoshima power houses! To keep treating Sakura the same way they have been Yukirin would have been really a shitty thing to do and I was nearing my bend (as Sakura did) but thankfully, they gave at least one of them a break! Wish it would have been yukirin though especially at this moment in time where B seems to be hitting things off and a Mayuki single would have been most appropriate but alas.
But it is Sakura, and if no Yukirin, then Sakura is the best option and I am forever grateful that at least they went with this! We are getting close now. Yukirin can’t just help Mayuyu during the practice for this single and ignore Sakura seeing as they are both Centres (dreaming, dreaming!)
I of course, having had college today, I missed most of the Janken and only got to see one match of Yukirin during the Top 16’s battle for the positions (and No.1) so I totally missed the first three awesome matches that got her to the Top 16. My Goddess, where did she still the luck? Not only her though, Team B was on fire this day dear Readers! Especially My Favourite Draftee Sayaya who almost swept the whole house clean! In support was Naanyan and Goddess Yukirin. Really bad that neither won though. It’s wishful thinking of course but can you imagine a B triangle at the top of that pyramid? Then there is the 38th Single Senbatsu filled with more B members! Like, I am so insanely happy right now!
Sure my goddess is like in the 7th line if we are going by the order of name announcements but really, what’s new? It wouldn’t surprise me if she wasn’t in this at all! I hope Avex is taking notes! Sure she is in the Janken Senbatsu as well but as per usual, she is also in the back line there too. Since this means that she won’t have that an important part in both these last two singles of 2014, she should be available for a Solo Concert not to mention a 3rd single, am I right!
Seriously though, when shall we have a MAYUKI single if not now when Mayuyu is AKB’s No.1 and Yukirin the No,.2! Probably when she gets that Top spot in the Election. Well, that does it, I am multiplying my efforts by 7 now from last year! You started this AKS, it’s so on!
In the meantime though, Mayuyu please take care of Sakura like Mamarin has you. And I hope you pass on some good things about Sakura to Yukirin and Sakura, take this chance to appeal to Mayuyu about Yukirin so she can pass it on. Then again, I have a feeling Sakura is gonna get out the big guns and take the battle to Mayuyu for Yukirin’s affection. Oh shi…Is this it? Will this decide it all? Oh God, now I can’t wait for the after-effects of this single! Something is gonna change, I can just feel it! Okay, this is better than a Mayuki single for now!
The girl from Yukrin’s real home VS the girl that is Yukirin current home (Home is where the heart is)…MY BODY IS READY!
Any way, skip over for more photos of these wonderful Oshi of mine and Mayuki (BOC)!
Awwyeaaaah, I am so into this movie it’s almost laughable! I can’t help always raiding the internets for more ‘Zero’ news these days. I am just so taken with Aoi and Ayami-chan right now! This time though, I found more than what I was expecting as it turns out that there is another Project Zero/fatal Frame game coming out in the same month as the movie which is this month! In fact the two releases are only like, a day apart, no scratch that, only hours apart with the movie coming out on the 26th as we know, and the game (Wii) following it just the next day on the 27th!
I ask once again, dear Lord, why wasn’t I born Japanese!?!! Surely I must have displayed a great sense of wanting to be born re-born there, so why?! Y U No…
