Yoko-chan approves of this single so I guess I should too! But still, what’s with this title?! It seems to me that AKS says something different while it does another! Now I will forgive all who roll eyes at me worshipping the ground that Yukirin walks on because they would be right, but isn’t her being too nice, her being a dog that doesn’t eat other dogs for survival like everyone else in the entertainment industry what had AkiP so against her? For crying out loud, he even invaded her drama (Mielion Kashiwagi) to tell her this! Last SSK, or just before it, there was this prediction from those usual guys and one of them said how he changed from a Yukirin Oshii to a DD just because of this very reason!
So then what’s with all this ‘We won’t Fight’ business in an AKB single’s lyrics? It’s like all the beef management have against Yukirin don’t account for the rest of the girls! Put Yukirin in the back lines because she is too tall! That was a ways back excuse. But apparently it doesn’t count for making Ikumin Centre of Team 8, or Rena and Jurina cantering SKE singles since the dawn of time or Kojiharu centring Heart Ereki! Then after realising their bullshit they decide to make Yukirin centre, and we all know how that turned out, don’t we!
Anyway, the teasers for the upcoming single PVs have hit and I gotta say I kind of love this single, even though the only things I like about it are the A-side and Team 8’s PVs. I might of course come back to these after the single is released and I have gotten my hands on the full PV but for now, let’s have a closer at what we got via Oshimen!
Angelic Yukirin is Angelic! Take a closer look all fans because this is the only good look you will have of her in her Angel outfit because the next time you will be back at playing the popular ‘Find Yukirin’ game we all know and love…
It’s a sad, sad world, isn’t it?
Man, Sakura is a long way to go to get to Yukirin levels of awesome! Funny thing though that if she had longer hair, her ‘do would be exactly the same as Yukirin’s LOL
And unless I blinked, multiple times, I didn’t get to see Rena cat-walk! Actually there wasn’t much of her. Oh well, at least she got to be with Yukirin again! And this time we got Yuihan to join the duo making those caps even more awesome! I really hope there is a dance version! I wanna see my YukiRena together, especially now that we will have to wait until the pre-Janken single to see Rena again in an AKB single!
Yukirin be breaking it down! Also I don’t understand the issue people have with the white/pink costumes! I actually love them the most out of everything, yes, even the angel ones! Might have to do with the fact though that Yukirin and pants are 100% fatal combination or maybe it’s that ponytail she is spotting! Makes her look so tiny Ahahaha! Also Nyawage!
Looking cool Sakura! But I have a question AKS, WTF is the logic behind taking the girls that are at the front of their respective groups and placing them at the front of AKB at the same damn time! Sakura and Jurina should have the same treatment that Sayanee got in this single! Sayanee can centre NMB singles like she has done since the dawn of time until the last two and even then she was at the front. Jurina is in the same boat! So is Sakura-tan! Why the hell isn’t Mayuki the ones flanking Paruru?
What’s to stop them from going full retard once again for the election single? Just watch as Yukirin wins SSK and gets the same treatment she got from Green Flash! Iswear to God if Yukirin wins and they shit on her this time there won’t sleeping dogs! It will be frikking wolves being shocked awake! There will be blood! Mark my words!
What about that Team 8 PV though! And what about that YuriKa! Kind of sad that Yuri has been forgotten about even before her Centre status lifted off with Team 8’s debut at Tokyo Dome 2014 but then all was forgiven when they gave me this pairing in this new song of theirs from the 40th single. That eye contact in the AKBINGO Live performance and then that PV! Also are these two such great candidates for a double centre or what! I love me some Hama/Serika but this duo trumps that! Especially when you consider how much Serika loves Yuri!
On the other hand, just look at how these two clash! Their height difference is over that perfect distance and as for chemistry? I am not familiar with Team 8 enough to make judgements but I from what I have seen these two aren’t that close too. Sure Nagisa is just too adorable for anyone to resist but she is also one of the fans’ favourite so there’s gotta be bad blood there. Well, at least the put on a show…
Why Nagi-chan all of a sudden? Well, that’s because I too have fallen into the trap that is her! She has gone and changed my Team 8 list over its head! I need to post an update of that BTW because there are other changes, like Ikumin falling further down that list, Yoko-chan climbing and there is another entry in the form of a certain cool beauty! Hint is that she has something in common with Nagi-chan! Ah but Yuriyan is still the undisputed champ!
What’s going on with this PV!? So much insinuations! Did Yoko-chan just score herself a girl! Not that I don’t see why!
Yuriyan is like my 2nd Yukirin! Wherever she maybe in the complete shot I find her almost instantly! I guess it doesn’t matter anymore if she will ever get to centre anything, she has already grabbed my heart!
Swaggering Yoko-chan is in 3rd place now! Seriously, this girl is like in a different generation gap from her peers! Truly, the real Yokoyama Yui! But even this cool Yoko-chan is jelly of someone…
Look at her studying Yokoyoko! She is like, ‘You can’t up-cool me yo!’ Reminds me of Patrick Bateman from ‘American Psycho’ as he studied a certain business card that made him so jealous she almost killed the guy because of it! I can just imagine the same awe going through Yoko-chan’s mind as she studies Yokoyoko’s posture LOL
And let’s not forget this perfect jail bait! To think that she is the youngest in the senbatsu for this song!! Hitomi keeps her 4th rank because I am not sure if it’s just me but I think there is a dance rivalry going on between her and Yoko-chan! Probably just me though.
Anyway, that’s that! Ikumin and Sugar-chan (Nanami) aren’t here because they fell off the 8-list sadly! They are still on the 10-list but not the 8-list! How things change in a course of a single year! Who knows though, things might change by the next Team 8 song and they might come back. Ikumin has just changed quite a bit to my liking from the girl I first got to know. Sugar-chan has not fallen because I love her less but because I found more girls I didn’t know before and loved them that much more. Wait for the updated list to learn who!
