Having already sobered from the high that is the sheer fact that we have the Kagoshimai facing off as the captains of Red and White teams in AKB48’s 6th Kouhaku Utagassen, I finally got the mind to sit down and look through the line-up and man…Talk about unequal ground! Things get even worse when you see the whole listing of the full members! Like, are you even serious Bruh?!
From talent to star-power Red Team has White beat in all regards. Dancers, singers, Kamis, Aces…Jesus Red team, what even?! There is no way that White team is going to win this without some strings being pulled!
Starting from the top, look at those captains!! Red has two of the most experienced ‘organisers’ in the group, one with her own solo tours (Yukirin) and the other with a whole group (Sasshi) and both a super nerds when it comes to Idols so like…I don’t even…. And let’s not forget the instrumentalists in Nao, who is backed-up by Sayanee, Rion and Aoi. Meanwhile don’t get me started on the vocals (Miyu, Erina, Sayanee, Yukirin) and dancing skills (Yokoyama Yui, Tano, Yuria, Jurina, etc, etc…!
Oh man, this is going to be some brutal experience!
Thank the Lord that I am mostly going into this for the Kagoshima combi. Yeah yeah, I know they are supposed to be competing but hey, at least finally AKS is recognising their duel value so this is a cause for flipping out in happiness!!!
What are the odds that instead of singing different songs like the captains that have come before, they instead both sing the same song and battle it out dance floor style? I mean Sakura VS Yukirin in a music performance battle is pure madness but if they were to perform the same song while doing the thing, al else is forgotten!
Alright, that is it. If you want the full listing, go to Stage48. They got you covered…

Been a while since I was last seen here, fufufufu. When I read your opening remarks, all I could think was: this is going to be FUBAR. On paper (or screen if you want to be quite literal…fufufu) it would a masscre of the white bunch. But when faced with imminent death, the weak tend to bare their fangs for they have nothing to lose. We’ll have to see if the White gals have what it takes to defeat the “superior force” that Red team projects.
I’ve been so into other situations and stuff that this year I’ve been so disconected with reguards to AKB48, and mostly anything really. That I had absolutely forgotten about the Kouhaku (either version). So I guess, I can’t really say that I’m thrilled to read Sakura is Captain of the w team, though I definitely happy for Yukirin leading the Red team. I guess I am reching the age were you become a cynical person and everything becomes grey or devoid of passion.
Anyway, my impression stands, Red troop will annihilate White troop.
