Red 42 : 18 White

And that’s a wrap, all of you go home! Team Red won this before the battle even began! Seriously, Red just cheated with the original Temo Demo no Namida, there is no arguing about it! Even Yukirin knew she had won after that because she never appeared in anything else after it for the night while the other big players did!

Seriously, 42 to 18!!! That’s like more than 200% votes in the ratio of Red to White! I don’t even care for the Judge’s votes, 80% of them didn’t know anything about music and were just fans and we all know how bad they are at decisions! Those two are the same ones that always predict Yukirin to be out of senbatsu in their Sousenkyou predictions and they are always wrong so their voting means absolutely nothing to me! And since the fans in the audience were in grander favour of the Red team and those two call themselves fans but were on a different wavelength than the other fans just shows them for the fakers that they are!

So any way back to the point at hand…

Dear Readers, I don’t even…I had tears flowing down my face through this performance! I kid you not! It was like I travelled back in time to the glorious days when Team B was the IT! My heart simply melted when the two’s voices finally combined in the chorus! My ears, God my ears! Okay, alone there was something strange about their voices, even for Yukirin who has sang this song so many times she could sing it a coma had issues for some reason that I am willing to bet was on nervousness of the two finally singing this song after, what, 3 or so years?!!

But when the two combined it was like someone was massaging my very soul! Oh God, here comes the tears again! And that VTR playing on the screen and in sync with the girls was just strong hit on the nail! Okay, I concur, these two are still and forever will be the best melodic version of Temo Demo no Namida! Yes, I still think that the lyrics of Temo Demo were brought to life by Mayuki doing it and thus still the most meaningful to me but this right here is the best version! I could listen to this version until I die of old age!

And that Mikachi, how in all that is holy did she keep in shape all this time?! She still looks as great as always. Kind of makes me think that if she really did decide to return, management wouldn’t give it a second thought and she did say that if given the chance to return as a member, she would! AkiP, I know she would have like two or three years at MAX but

MAKE! IT! HAPPEN!

I most certainly am now looking forward to Temo Demo no Namida in the 2015 RH! You know that after this, that song is going back into the Top Tier game! Please be there Mikachi! After this, I can’t stand any other pair doing this song in RH! Nope!

Only mentioning these two because not only are they my other Kamis but that interestingly, they came on the stage in sequence! There I was feeling sorry for the poor soul that was going to take the stage after Temo Demo no Namida, the strongly received performance of the night, and then BAM, Rena came out and I was like, Okay, God, you are being mean right now!

And then right after Rena, Sakura came up doing Sashiko’s song and my mind was just rendered useless! I mean come-on! Not only the three come together but they did in the ranks that they hold with their Leader Yukirin coming in first, my No.2 Rena following and then Sakura-tan! Too bad Maachun wasn’t…

Sigh, I am already well off, no need to be greedy, right?

And the other performances that caught my attention for obvious reasons! Yokoyama Yui totally slayed, literally and figuratively! That Aneki get-up she had and the way she was so into the role was just…WOW! It was like  this was her initiation as she established her incoming role as the new Leader of the Conquering Group in this Idol Dynasty! And damn, that final Boss was just too OP! he got cut up, shot tens of times and he was still standing! That’s right members, try to go against Yui-sama’s orders and that is what twill happen to you too!

Then there was Ambulance! AMBULANCE LIVE guys! Even though we got this I still was left craving for more! This single is going to be in the RH, right? because I want to see this song performed again LIVE as soon as possible. But this time please give us the actually uniforms they used in the PV! That was the biggest disappointment for me! Kind of took the fun out of it to tell the truth! I want my uniforms from the PV, not this PG-10 crap! This is AKB we are talking about, right? Then again, there were some none-AKB guests there so hopefully that won’t be the case in RH, if we do get it!

There were other performances of course that were great, like Team red’s Kamonegix, the SP Remix version and Team White’s Escape but to tell the truth, as soon as Temo Demo no Namida came, my mind was already gone so…

Any way, laters…

8 thoughts on “More Like Temo Demo no Utagassen

  1. … As expected of those two! The completely stormed the show and took us in a ride through Memory Lane. I have said all along, you cannot render a more exciting and amazing performance of this song than those two.

    The version between Yukirin and Mayuyu had an impact, because of the imagery and perception of the interpreters. It’s like playing the Cannon in D by Pachelbel with a harmonica. Or the Caprice by Paganini in piano. Most people that gave significance to that version, was because of their own desires and expectations. Or so I think.

    But, when Mikachii and Yukirin perform is more of a sentiment with regards to the song and its music. I mean we identify it with them, and it became a symbol. Not only is it representative of the performers but also of the Team B of that time. So, I think we see it with different eyes. For me it is about sentiment and musicality, for others it is nostalgia or something else, that grants a song as special place, or a specific cover. Despite some inconsistencies in their performance, it was very solid. I still think Mikachii is one of Yukirin’s best musical partners. They harmony is more than evident, rarely you see Yukirin mingle so effortlessly with another member.

    I still consider that Temo Demo no Namida interpreted by the duo it was designed for is the best. Another instance I saw Yukirin, showing a rather comfortable singing level was with Acchan and Tomochin in their cover of Dakeshime raretara. I still haven’t got a chance to get her version of Scandalous ni ikou with Nyan nyan, which I am looking forward to.

  2. I was like WTF! Blasting out this song this early? Then I saw Mikachii… It indeed was cheating. I mean it was not an honest move. How can any other performance top this?! I thought to myself: “What’s next? Akimoto Sayaka comes back for performing Mushi no Ballad again?!” And Mikachii herself even said that if she gets a chance she would love to return to AKB! The FAQ? Oh, I see… if we playing like this, then I want my Meetan NOW! Who cares if she’s married and has a child… (and since she gained a little weight because of this now she has the perfect body as well!)

    Heavy Rotation was good because… reasons… カレン & た 🙂 に

    (Song vise Flying Get is better IMO…)

    Then we had Dina and RION with instruments… Yeah… Like if we needed any more of awesomeness, really… 😀 The skirt lifting wind machines would have worked better if they actually wore a decent underwear under those skirts… not those… shorts or trunks… very sexy… but if they wore real underwear they would have to change the number in the group name to something else…

    And if someone thought Moriyasu Madoka was not cool enough… she was playing the keys part of Escape… If only they have kept the original dance… Tano was OK as center as this style suits her. But they had to play the Asuka card again. That girl is OP as hell. She only had one rival in the whole family but Princess Andrea has graduated so… yeah… It was okay though… M.F. Keicchi, FuruYanagi, NMB Akarin, Reinyan… Good stuff right there!

    Poor Kitagawa… he has to do all the weird shit in G48… 😀

    I thought I liked that Takeuchi Riki guy… I’m not so sure now… Sayanee’s father or not, I don’t care… You know guys he was holding Fuuko really tight in Teppen Tottande! 😀 (I’ll let the Fuuko fans deal with him for now…) At least he came early in the song… *wink, wink* 😀

    *sirens*
    Someone call 911 because of the serious cases of “critical boners”… If only my high school crush didn’t dress as a nurse for a school play I would not have this fetish now… It can’t be helped…

    PS: Sato was smiling like that because she kissed my RION-chan! Will never forget that… or forgive…

    • I know, right? I was like, this should have been saved as a special performance later when the votes were being counted. I mean at the end of the day, Team White won any way so…And it would have been the perfect way to close off performances too.

      I also want a Rion VS Madoka VS Sakiko on piano! That would be one epic battle no doubt about it!

  3. I gonna say it, That MaYuki TemoDemo is the best one to me, it was just such a Hurricane of feels that it kinda blows others away (plus epic work from the cameraman on that day)

    But man it was great seeing the original back again here, and you are right BlackGeki, it just sounds right with these two (even with slightly odd vocals during the performance) and boy Mikachii has not like missed a step since she left, I mean it’s like they time warped her in from the past!!! So glad they did this, it was a great throwback and yeah it would be cool to see it again at the RH 2015!! (though still waiting of course for that CSB version, especially as they have been put closer together recently (though I actually think that “Bokutachi wa Ima Hanashi Aubeki nanda” the Itano/Yuki duet would be a better song for them to sing (seriously check the lyrics out and tell me I’m wrong! http://stage48.net/studio48/bokutachiwaimahanashiaubekinanda.html) or even, dare I say a Yui/Yuki performance or even Taka/Yuki, actually no not that, want to save that for closer to when Takamina is graduating…… er anyway, back to business)

    Having Rena and Sakura come out afterwards was kinda cool too, though it did kinda blow my interest in the whole thing over a bit…. until Yui came out!!! Damn that girl effects me in WAY, especially when she is in the mode she was in for this performance, seriosuly want to see her and Yuki do some of the more adult/serious songs together, it would be like pure gold!!!

    As for Ambulance, that was just a dangerous time for us all…….

    And also Jurina, slightly random I know but this all happened http://derpduck-100.tumblr.com/post/107784689047/juriyuki ……. as I said, 2015 is the year of the “Race for Yukirin”

    • Oh make no mistake about it Willmark, CBS Temo Demo is on my most wanted list! The only thing that would top is is of course Bokutachi and Oshibe to Meshibe! God I swear if CBS does Oshibe to Meshibe, which would actually be Yukirin’s first time doing that song if I am correct, I would totally lose my mind!

      As for Takamina, I too want to keep that in the bag for Takamina’s graduation concert! We have to have the best as send off for our lovely Souchan and best is what is wrapped in a Yukirin label!

      YuiYuki duet can take its time for I am positive t will be coming! The past year has seen development to that moment!

      And now that you mention Jurina, I have actually been seeing her more with Yukirin lately, actually, it was more a threesome with Yukirin and Takamina, especially in concerts. They are almost always together in the same frame in every concert , which I had put off before until now. Hmm…I wonder…

  4. Original Temo is the best… No other combination can beat Mikachi and Yukirin !! I kept ther ver. in my fav playlist and still listening to it after 4 yrs since the first time I heard it…

    Best one !

    • I have to agree with you and as we saw in this Utagassen, so do the rest of the fans think greatly of this legendary duo.

      I still think though that with the meaning of the song taken into account, that MAYUKI version in RH2013 was still the most FEEL inducing after they got separated.
