dear Mayuki, please just announce that wedding date as that is all that we are waiting for at this rate! Like, are you even kidding me? You know, I really want to meet anyone who knows of AKB48 but doesn’t know who Mayuki are! I really need to meet them as no place is safe! Anywhere they go Mayuki always happens! I mean they do say home is where the heart is so it makes sense for Mayuki World to follow them wherever they go but still!
Even Utage, the one place I thought was safe from Mayuki as Mayuyu seemed to be taking her job there seriously, was not spared! I am of course talking about…
Of course now that I actually have another look, it does look like unlike the other times, this time it is Yukirin who starts things off.
And speaking of this episode, is it only I that always get a smile when Ai-chan and Yukirin perform in these dance battles on the same team? I just, I am this close to starting to ship them two I swear!
But while all is good, the actual reason for this post isn’t actually Mayuki but rather, the meaning of the day before yesterday! By that of course I mean the 15th of July – a very special day as it is my Goddess’ day on which she came into being – Her Birthday! I am ashamed that I did not get to post this on that day but better late than never, right?
Before I go farther, I wish to say to all Yukirinians out there that I hope you are proud to bee a fan and if you are not, you should be! Despite everything Yukirin has reserved her spot in the history of AKB48! Sure it is not being one of the SSK Centres, or any other Centre but really, there are many of those!
What is even more important is that this memory she has created belongs to the people matter more and thus makes the achievement itself that much more important and these are the members themselves I am talking about. Yukirin has garnered so much love from the members that no other Senpai comes even close! I already said it but I will touch upon it again but whoever comes into contact with her, whoever she works with on a project or performs a stage with, those members are always usually affected by and see Yukirin differently.
This was from Shiichan herself if you think I am making it up but even then one is only selecting to ignore the evidence. I am not sure how many follow members’ lives but Yukirin is one of those members that new girls rarely look up to. After time passes, when they meet her then it starts. Think of all the Kashiwagi children (what we call members who Idolise Yukirin) – almost 70% of them did not have her as their Idol in the beginning. And yet now…
And I am going in circles, let’s take a step back in time on Friday. I think I posted last year’s over-whelming number of messages from members to Yukirin on her but if you thought that was a lot, well, try multiplying that by a factor of > 7!! NMB girls, who haven’t seen Yukirin, haven’t performed with her in two or more years, all sent Yukirin heart-warming messages. Girls from Team Bs of old from other sister groups all sent her messages. graduated members sent her messages. Poor NGT girls, who had the luck of being put with Yukirin from the get go, well, I am pretty sure the effects are plain as day! And all to these messages…
Yukirin wrote a personalised reply!!
Like, how can that not make you proud!! Oh yes, if more proof is needed, in the Documentary Book there were various Questionnaires for the members and Yukirin, by almost 40% of the votes, was the most respected member in the 48G by the other members!
We fans are only outside the lass not even looking inside but rather seeing only what is put on display. These members are in the inside. They go through the same everyday life like Yukirin does. They know what goes on in there than we will ever even wish to comprehend. I only recently got this through my thick skull because before I was actually letting what other people said about Yukirin affect me but these days, I see how meaningless those words were, how weightless.
No other member/Kami has touched so many members as Yukirin has. Be it her Kouhai or her own Senpai, everyone treats Yukirin like she was their comrade. There is no distance at all between her and the others.
The only distance that I see and feel is between Management and herself. Not Shinobu though, Shinobu is cool! And that makes me come off as being triggered but I won’t deny that conclusion!
There is more reasons to be proud of Yukirin but I am saving those for the relevant posts to come. For now don’t be brought down by the fact that Yukirin might graduate without ever dominating SSK or solo Centring an AKB single! The latter should have happened by now but I think it is safe to assume that will never happen. Hell, I can see Management approving the Mayuki graduation only because they can deny Yukirin that solo Centre!
But it doesn’t matter! Yukirin doesn’t have to be No.1! Maybe she has to if it means something special to herself but not to us, not to the members! She has already touched us. We will never forget her! The members already know her, see her for what she is and what she is capable of. So be proud!
Be proud to be a Yukirin Fan!
And I am done. Sorry for the rumbling. Jump ahead for the pics (Most of which are from this Friday by the members)…
Everyone wants a piece of Yukirin! Cardboard cut-out? It doesn’t matter!
And NGT girls, especially you Noeppi, please control thyselves!

MaYuki at the moment seem to have gone into complete overdrive at the moment, I mean in all the years of MaYuki I don’t think we have ever had this much content for this amount of time!!
Of course this could be because they know something that we do not which is causing this extra content (i.e graduation, dare I even say double graduation?) but that is something that I shall not worry about, I will just enjoy the glorious bounty put in front of me, jsut as God intended :p
The love Yuki got on her Birthday was amazing, especially when it came from the girls from NMB and places like that, it’s was really touching to see that they still have such found memories of Yukirin for that brief period of time that they were together, it speaks volumes for Yukirin too who really is a person who once you meet, changes peoples perspectives about her, like you say not many people come into the 48 groups idolizing Yuki but so many do so after they have met her, but that is so much better really, they fall in love with Kashiwagi Yuki the person rather than Yukirin the idol and perhaps that is what makes her special.

Since Yukirin said she doesn’t want drama, I doubt it would be any time soon.
But seeing how much more work she is getting these days, almost as if someone is afraid of her leaving and pretending to love her, you might be onto something there.
I am still touched with the B-Day happenings! And members falling in love with the person and not the Idol, doesn’t that make her an even better Idol because it means she is truly that good at the core and thus a natural born Idol.
An Idol’s Idol..
