Putting aside the fact that I am definitely going to hell for using Mirinyan’s pain in this way, the saga that is Hitomaika continues! Episode 03 already and believe me, we are not done yet!
Seriously, I have not been this obsessed with a ship since Black x Gekikara and even then, there was a great deal of lack of content of them other than Majisuka Gakuen, where they only had an episode or so of interaction. I guess it had to do with the fact that they were both my Kami’s of their respective groups because I don’t think I would have been as obsessed with them otherwise.
Ah but don’ confuse Maika and Hitomi as being my Oshi too. Maika, yes, Hitomi? No! When and if it does happen, a ship in here that is like BuraGeki, it would be Risa and Maika! Risa, who will be featured in this post too with caps, was the one that stole my heart first out of this group but unfortunately, Maika came along and took a big chunk of that heart for herself so Risa is protons behind Maika on the ladder!
Interestingly, I think someone in management there also ships these two but I have yet to see much to make me ship them too. Though it has to do with the fact that I just got into Hitomaika and I am like glue! When I ship, it rarely happens that I change ships unless the girl is my Oshi, then I could ship her with anyone. But so far that has only been Yukirin and no there. No Rena, no Maachun, no Sakura, with anyone else but Jurina, Sayanee and Meru respectively!
Anyway, onto the point at hand…
The first order of business in the BTS of their first solo mini live stage. During aa dance showdown where members were split into two groups, Maika missed a step and fell down! This was a dance show down!! Moreover, there is only twelve members in =LOVE! Twelve and split down in two making it six, thus everyone being in open view of the fans! Not to mention that while the other six were dancing, the rest were watching! Imagine not only making a mistake there but actually falling down!!
And while it is commendable (that’s an Idol for you) that Maika kept on smiling until the stage was finished, as soon as they got back stage she al but broke down and if I am calculating the timeline right, she cried for a long while!
Anyway, it was very sweet seeing all the members surrounding her like a protective blanket as they escorted her to the changing rooms, with Risa bringing out the front, the Lolis (Saitou2), Leader (Anna), Nonno, Waifu (Hitomi) surrounding her on all sides, with Boya (Iori) trying not to cry too! And oh yeah…
Hitomi (and Nagisa) had her hand around a sobbing Maika!
Needless to say, I lost the first round!
But when we get to the changing rooms, with time passed but Maika still a mess of tears, it gets personal! Only a personal touch would do! Guess who comes over to her? That’s right, Waifu Hitomi! After a heartfelt hug with a crying Maika still apologising for messing up and Hitomi telling her it is okay as she would look back on the moment in the future and have a laugh about it, they do the thing – They make love with their eyes!
I will have a dedicated post in the future about this eye-sex, mostly on Maika’s part! I swear that girl looks at Hitomi some times like she was candy ready to be devoured!
Moving on, I learned something new here about Maika, and her and Hitomi! First of all I figured that she spend most of her off screen time with Iori and that it was mostly business with Hitomi but that is not so! Second we learn that Maika is actually pretty soft hearted and I guess Sashiko was right about her! She is so much like Akimoto Sayaka in that way! They are both hard and so soft at the same time is just makes you love them so much on how they are so strong for the others but at the same time they are also so vulnerable that you just want to protect them at all cost!
The point here is that we learn that Maika (from her own mouth), we learn that she actually cries a lot during dance lessons as she finds it really hard to learn! Taking that into account then we find out that she actually spends a lot of BTS time with Hitomi and that Hitomi helps her out a lot to memorise those dance moves and my hear…you have it!
If Maiks is that soft and she spends a lot of those ‘tears’ time with Hitomi, that is like…That means that Hitomi ‘knows’ her, the real her! That means that Hitomi is always there for her! That explains the first first where it was Hitomi that went to comfort her Uno-o-Uno!
And I just blew my mind with that discovery!
Just when I thought it would take a miracle to ship them any more than I already do…
Round 2 – LOST!
Then of course came the Holy Grail, that is only part of the full cup! The source of this part of the documentary is from an appearance that I briefly mentioned before! Remember about the post I said would be title ‘10min of Shameless Flirting’? Well, this part of the doc is from that video! But I just couldn’t leave it out since it is still part of the documentary episodes and besides. In fact these scenes here were from a different angle than those in that video so they are actually different!
Which makes me even more excited about the upcoming episode 8 documentary because that is about the third single Teokure CAUTION. In other words, more gayness from that single that I did not even think possible is incoming! We only have to suffer through four weeks of waiting…
Anyway, this part is from the Mirinyan section where she talks about her painful experience during those shows where she could not talk at all compared to the other two, and it was really obvious! Not even the magic of editing could save her! but at least they used her silent personality to inject in some humour! Not that I blame her. It was Hitomaika that decided to go all MAYUKI on us by getting lost into their own world, that even I did not know existed!
Yep, another thing I just learned and another reason to ship them even more!
I am keeping the details in this one for that dedicated post but just know that the third and final round was also lost!
Yeah, like I had a chance at all…
Have a good Sunday.
Hitomaika is life!
