A MAYUKI Graduation Might Be Happening!
Dear Readers, I really wish you were me right now, I really do! Because I wish for you to feel what I am feeling currently because I just can’t put these feelings into words!! Last year, especially 2H was just…forgive my language, completely hellish! I am pretty sure some fans left the fandom by the start of this year. Even with the unrelated stuff like mass graduations and what not, last year was just shite!
And so it goes without saying that optimism going into this year was on the low end of the spectrum! But then things began to happen that lifted me up and up until we got to the level that I just cannot see myself going any higher! The big part of the reasons for the ocean of hope and happiness is credited to none other than MAYUKI – The Ship to End All Ships!
If you are a regular, I am pretty sure that you have come across a post or a comment of mine where I have speculated, and even hoped for the miracle that MAYUKI would do a double graduation! Well guess what dear Readers…
IT MIGHT FINALLY HAPPEN!!!!
In this interview of Yukirin connected to the 2016 Documentary Movie, whose title is even the very subject I am discussing right now, we hear straight from Yukirin’s own mouth that when it comes time to graduate, she hopes to graduate with Mayuyu!
I speculated, I hoped but never did I actually think that it might ever come true! I mean come on, that is some Fan Fiction Level of sugar right there! The very fact that Yukirin thinks of it, the fact that she actually shared that thought out loud just gives it another 0.89 probability of actually happening!
What’s even more intriguing is the fact that the recent Mayuki activities (seriously, there has been more Mayuki in the last six or seven months than the last five or six years combined!!! And that is no exaggeration!) all help in making the duo-graduation a very likely possibility! Yukirin would never just throw something like that out like that for no reason! She and Mayuyu have probably even already discussed it, decided on a date to graduate and only waiting on their Management to seal the deal.
I mean, just this SSK, we already heard that they were this close to not participating so really, the conversation has probably been going on for a while! The idea that the two will graduate together means that it is up to Mayuyu now. Yukirin is only waiting for her, in addition to her love for the group, which seems less and less as attractive as it was before because like she said in the interview, there are negative effects to all Senpai leaving the group but on the other hand, if they don’t then how would the young ones grow out of their shadows and carry the group with their own strengths?
Okay, she doesn’t have to actually leave the company, she can get another kind of job there but no longer a member and really, she might as well because while it is good that she is looked up to and is close with so many members, it also will make it hard for her to leave them behind and who knows the impact it might have on the group. We have seen members before graduating because their precious Senpai have graduated (eg Jo and Acchan) and with how popular with the members Yukirin is…well…
As to what I think of all of this, I used to support Yukirin in her decision to stay longer with AKB but after everything I can’t wait for her to ditch them and move on to finally be equally rewarded for the amount of work she produces. I feel bad for the Kouhai who might bee negatively impacted but I have already had enough of Yukirin’s treatment. Okay, so outside personnel have been good to her, Nabe has tried to award her, the fans have always are still and will always be with her but her priorities have always been with AKB. She has worked more for AKB and thus there is where she should have been more rewarded for her work but it is the exact opposite!
Well, screw them!
All I want is the date to the Mayuki Graduation! It will be the very first time I travel just to attend an event! No more college to restrain me! No more lack of money to have to wait months due to saving!
Bring it on!
