So, I was watching the Team 8 performance on the 11th (@11:30am) and during the self-introductions, which were accompanied with complimenting the person to your right, SERIKA went and surprised me by her love confession for Yuriyan! She had three nice things to say about Yokoyoko (Yuriyan), which makes her the one with the most compliments, and the last one was that she loved Yuriyan!
I was like, Wha…!??!
Now sure the others were dropping the daisukis around like usual but they were all different from SERIKA’s. It seems this is the first time Yuriyan knows about this which makes two of us that were shocked! I mean the first person I would think of (and kind of ship her with) is MC Hama! Hama was present as you can see but SERIKA didn’t even skip a bit at her declaration. And Hama too didn’t seem all that affected, though she did show that she cares for SERIKA a little bit in an earlier performance where she said that during their first tour, SERIKA cried and she is usually the one to comfort her because it seems she cries only when they are together. But on that day, some other girls from Osaka were there and surrounded SERIKA so Hama couldn’t comfort her like usual. She said it made her sad.
Any way back to the point at hand, I was surprised by this. Not to mention the fact that I just decided, yesterday in fact, to ship Yuriyan and Long-chan (Smile-kun) after seeing them in that AKB no Anta Dare episode. Usually when I have an established ship, I don’t jump on another one featuring any of those girls but in this case, in this case I had no hope! Resistance was futile! SERIKA and Yuriyan and two of the EIGHT (My Team 8 top favourites) so of course I was going to drink up the possibility of a ship with these two like I was a Bee and they were honey!
And as I was saying, other girls did say they like the others but there was a difference. Like Yuriyan and Yuuna here for example! Look at hat face when she says ‘I love you’ to Yuuna…
Yeah, I can totally see the love in your eyes Yuriyan. It’s written all over your face >_>
She wanted to return the favour to SERIKA but she had to follow the rules and so even if she had to compliment Yuuna instead. Speaking of Yuuna, how about that smile! She is almost giving Kurenyan a run for her smile! In fact she would be winning because if you look at the both of them closely…
and you compare, Yuuna wins because her eyes smile too whereas Kurenyan on the other hand is the true Dead Eyes! It’s even worse when you get a close-up of them with her mouth to of frame! But Kurenyan still wins because she compensates that with those lovely dimples of hers! Also she is one of the EIGHT!
Speaking of the eight, I totally loved this performance because not only were a whole 5 of the EIGHT present for this performance (Yuriyan, MC Hama, SERIKA, Haupyon and Kurenyan), but three of them were in the same unit! Yurina, SERIKA and Harupyon were in the same unit!!! They were singing Skirt, Hirari in case someone doesn’t know! Even better still, yes, even better than this is the fact that Hitomi, another of the EIGHT is also a member of this unit! When she is present she does Skirt, Hirari as well and when Yuriyan is not around, she is the Centre. But wait, that is not all!!! No2 of the EIGHT, the one and only Ikumin is also a member of the Skirt, Hirari gundan! Like, how ridiculous is that?!!! Ah but wait!! We are not done! As I mentioned in my post in which I listed the EIGHT, I did mention that Narunaru is also one of my favourites and that she was kicked out of the EIGHT by Kurenyan, remember? Well, that Narunaru is also…yes, you guessed it, she is in the Skirt, Hirari line-up!!!!!
I don’t even know what I am feeling right now…best stop while I am still conscious! But before I bail…
Okay, that’s it. Now if you will excuse me, I have the 15:00 performance to watch too.
See ya around
