So there is this movie that is coming out soon and the first trailer just hit! I actually saw a poster for this movie not even a week ago on twitter and I was left wondering what it was! Since that is Kashiwagi Hinata of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku, my first thought was that this was some kind of TV24 drama! This is the first time I have seen Hinata in a project so i did not think it was a movie because usually they start out on the small screen, well, the joke is on me it seems!

From what I can see, this movie is right up in my alley! Girls, yuri and guns, what could be better! If Bee Train was into Live Action, this is the kind of project we would expect from them! The story looks interesting but also there is signs of BAD END but I am inclined to believe in a GOOD END this time around despite all the tears, the bodies falling like sheep and those taglines of doom!

In the end though, HANDS always win and that was the case here too. Hands never let me down so I am believing in this movie giving a BEST END to Hinata and Seika and speaking of Seika, that is one unusual ‘DO! I have never seen like with that kind of hairstyle but she looks total badass for some reason with that uniform and a gun in her hand. The fact that she is pointing it at Hinata though, not so great!

It’s like being drawn to something beautiful, despite your fears!

Um no shit Sherlock! That is exactly how we feel watching a KyoAni show for the yuri despite our fears of it being just bait, case in point this very series ‘Hibike! Euphonium’! But seriously, who can resist after what has come so far!?! Who?! Not me that’s for sure! And with the latest episode development, as promised here is the update since episode 1 all the way to episode 8! That episode was just glorious!

Sorry for the wait the few that were waiting for an update on this show. Very rarely do I write episode for episode in fact I don’t think I have done it before…have I? Any way most of the time I never come back to said series but this time, this time there was no way I wasn’t getting back to ‘Hibike! Euphonium’ after that last episode (episode 8).

Jeez, talk about taking things to the extreme! Everything about Kumiko and Reina in that episode was out of this world! From the very moment they appear together on screen you were bound to be at the edge of your seat looking at the screen wondering if what you are seeing is actually happening!

Ah but this talking is all about the last episode and this post is supposed to be about all episodes for far since episode 1 that I already wrote about. With that made clear let’s get back on track and follow all Kumiko and Reina’s interactions since episode 2. Really, no other is relevant in this series as far as I am concerned! I loved Asuka like all the others but then she lost me with only one line. I will tell you about it soon. And let’s not even get into Hazuki!!Sapphire is love of course but this is a story about Kumiko and Reina, and it is this fact that despite the evidence from the novels as I am being told, I have faith! Until someone comes and tells me that the novel was also about these two’s relationship with each other, like the anime is so keen on letting us know, what with those promo art taglines and the very progress of the TV series so far, I am inclined to still have the benefit of a doubt.

Sure there was some yurific scenes in the novels, sure the author went full retard by ending it in the safe zone by which I mean that she just gave up and let Kumiko end up with the Guy because she had all these feelings lying dormant inside her and all that crap! But from what I hear, the author had a different vision for her novel but the editors or whatever had to change things but that matters not, what matter is that this is not the novel and that the main focus of the novel is second to Reina and Kumiko’s story. From the very first episode Kumiko’s life course seems to have been impacted by an ice-berg by the name of Reina. She has made a couple of decisions already with Reina as the catalyst and even 8 episodes in, Reina is still impacting Kumiko’s life greatly!

Meanwhile, what has Dick done up to now? Oh I know, just playing the ‘role’ to fill canon fodder! I don’t even care about feelings, everyone is entitled to feelings, Asuka could have feelings for Kumiko, Aoi could have feelings for Kumiko but if Reina has feelings for Kumiko too and Kumiko only seems to have feelings for Reina, then the other girls are on the same level as Dick! Or maybe not, those two seem to manage to get out more feelings from Kumiko than Dick has done in 8 episodes which really makes my mind spin trying to figure out how the heck Kumiko decided to go with that guy in the novel!! Actually I need more info on this, did the Guy confess and Kumiko returned those feelings or did he just confess! We need details here!

There I got again, getting side-tracked! Let’s jump into this before I swivel off course once again…

nonono

I told you all! I told you! There is no getting away from this one KyoAni, there is no frickking getting away from this one!

OMG!

I was planning on waiting (really hard to resist, it has been young apprentices) to blog more about this until the end but I just can not anymore! Resistance is futile! No matter what asspull they come up with by the end of the series what we have gotten so far is prize worthy!

And so I am going to go through those come next Sat when I have free time because this is just plain ridiculous! If this is all just yuri bait KyoAni deserves to be shut down and sued so hard they would need 100 years to get out of debt! Either way there is a grave ready with the name ‘Kyoto Animation’ on the tombstone of said grave, you know, just in case!

Seriously though WTF was with this episode!!? Talk about tuning up to 11!!

Tadaima Hello! Project Part1 – HaruMaria

Just to inform, I was into Momusu before AKB came into my life, Mikitty was my Oshi and shipped the hell out of her with Reina! Yeah, I know how weird that was! Everyone I knew and know that was into Morning Musume then shipped anyone else but these two! Mikitty and Ayaya were like the Mayuki of H!P and then there was either Rika or Hitomi. Reina on the other hand I remember mostly it was with Eri or Ai. Any way I do have a history with H!P but for some reason I wasn’t that into the other groups because they were very young! These passed years though I have gotten to like them, like Berryz with Kuma-chan being my Oshii and Mai in C-ute! Juice=Juice is very new and the only sub-group I have known since its birth! Don’t think anyone agrees with me but I think that it is the best of the sub-groups in H!P at the moment, until MM15 gets moving.

Any way, when AKB came into my life, Morning Musume got kind of buried especially when the Mikitty times came to pass and i have not gotten the mojo back until MM15 happened! Sure Harunan stole my heart the moment I caught sight of her but the members were not doing anything for me except Shige, er I mean Sayu-chan. So I waited, at the same time the other sub-groups were coming out of the Momusu shadows and claiming my attention.Still I kept an eye out for when MM would do something to awaken the dead part it claimed in my heart and the awakening started during the ‘Help Me’ single! I really love that song and it got my Momusu part of the heart start beating but still, I only occasionally just checked out their new A-side singles!

Then 12th Gen hit and I couldn’t stop media hunting just to get back into the mix of things with the current Morning Musume! Sadly these days their TV appearances are lacking compared to before and I hope H!P brings more variety shows on air! I want to get to know these girls even more and from other groups too like Juice=Juice and Angeme! But for the moment I settled for The Girls Live show, The Online Haro Pro show and the PV goodness! I thought so before and I still do but H!P’s PVs are the damn best looking PVs from Idol groups! AKB has nothing on them in that category!

But while all that is good and everything, the reason for starting these H!P posts is to share the  ships I have settled on and today I am starting with Morning Musume 15 of course…

Look at the chemistry right there!

Official Site Ready for Action!

Is it even possible to love something that doesn’t fully exists? Well, looks like it is as I am here experiencing just that with the as of yet to have a full Gen member list NGT48! You would think that at this moment it would be a great challenge for a new group and granted it might be hard depending on the girls they choose during the auditions but that bridge shall be crossed when we get to it, for now, with what we have, everything is looking great as far as I am concerned!

Yukirin at 2nd place in prelims!

  • With double the votes from last year’s prelims!
  • Only less than 5k points below Sashiko!

This is SRS business! And we are not done yet! We still have two weeks, a lot more time to fight this battle and win! Looks like the power of Mayuki (as you can see she is the one that wrote that ‘1’ on Yukirin’s shoulder) and Yukirin herself finally picking up a sword did its thing!

Oh how happy she was, so happy in fact she even dished Yuihan on their date just to go to the Theatre and confirm the results for herself LOL! What’s even better is that we don’t feel at all pressured or even that worried about the final result and neither does she as she stated that come what may, she won’t feel bad or different any way and this is what I feel too but at the same time too excited just like her!

I have said it before but I am going all out this year and no matter what, I will know I did all I could and will be satisfied with whatever result hits us in the end! Yukirin has been great this year, well more than before, she has also been more happy this year as well (almost like she was nearing the end) so it would really be the best gift from us to make her No.1! She has given us so much we need to return the favour! No girl has been good to their fans as Yukirin, no one!

In other news, much congrats to Kitarie, Uuka and Karen-chan for making it, especially Kitarie to 10th! Obviously these rankings are change significantly over the next two weeks but this is enough! With Yukirin and Kitarie in Senbatsu (hopefully) NGT is getting off at a good start! Now if only Yukirin wins 1st, Kitarie stays in senbatsu and as a reward NGT gets to start with a completely new stage come November, all would be right with the world!

Saying Long Goodbye to Tokyo Girls’ Style?

20150520_171657

Could it be? Has the time come for my wallet to be saved? Is this goodbye to my favourite Idol group ‘Tokyo Girls’ Style’? Yeah, sure this blog is all about AKB48 (Yukirin really if I am being truthful) but there is no denying the fact that not even the 48G combined has taken as much money from me as TGS has! I believe I have said it before but ever since I got into TGS, I have purchased every single release of theirs!

But now it seems that they have apparently graduated from being Idols and into artists, whatever the hell that implies for us, especially the international fans! The last single before the latest is all making kinds of sense right about now! First of all this means there won’t be TGS in this year’s Idol Festival! And though this might mean more tour releases, I am gonna miss the perks of being an Idol! Like, why did they even decide to do that? This is like the Idol revolution times we live in! I have a feeling many artists have a grudge against Idols these times and yet TGS decided to diss Idoling (no pun intended) for artists?! I don’t get it!

And everything was looking promising for them having just broken into the movie-verse with their first two hit movies! And all this after I was ready to kneel down and worship the good Lord for the miracle that is the latest single (Stay With Me)! Let me tell you about ‘Stay With Me’! You won’t believe it but that song was written by none other than Miyu herself! That’s right, the Yamabe Miyu of Tokyo Girls’ Style! And though at first it might seem like a message to fans, I take it the other way as usual! The catalyst being that Hiichan (Arai Hitomi) is like the solo singer of the song where as the others are just support and only pitch in during the choruses! And so I am sitting there and thinking – Miyu wrote this song! Hiichan is singing this song! Conclusion?

Is there even a need to say it? Me think not!

So anyway I bought their 1st Major Album Kirari that has all their songs to date! Spent over 100 bucks on this but really, what’s new? Not that I could have done any less seeing as they included Blurays and this was like their closure to their Idol life! I am really torn as to what to feel or do really!

Any way, in addition to TGS SWAG as usual, I also bought the next movie in the Jinroh series ‘Beast Side’ starring Irie Saaya! Of course it wasn’t just Saaya that got me to buy this, nope, there is that little fact that the previous movie tickled my shipper soul especially with that ending and I am so bitter that we did not get the actual sequel to it! It left the story so very open-ended but just like Rie and Joker Game, this is a different story with different characters, which is really sad! But then there is that supporting character list that has the very fabulous Morikawa Aoi and our new girl Aoyama Misato! I of course was going to get this no matter what, also the fact that I love Asian Horror helped! Absolutely can’t wait to watch all this goodness!
