And that is all I have to say about anything more that has to do with Euphonium!
And that is all I have to say about anything more that has to do with Euphonium!
I feel your pain Yukirin, I feel your pain…
Yes, I am back at this craziness but really, those who know me shouldn’t be surprised! Every time I dig a new Yukirin ship, I always see potential as long as the two are in ‘spitting distance’! You all know I ship me some Yukirin/Yuihan. we o way back to the Eien Pressure MV days! Which was kind of rare seeing as most were into Paruru/Yuihan or Sayanee/Yuihan and we all know of Yukirin’s side of the story! But like I have said so many times, almost everyone is shippable with Yuikirin as far as I am concerned! Don’t believe me? Just see the Fan Fiction List on the ride hand side!
So this means only one thing, that the new ship has to do with the other Yui – YuiYui – Oguri Yui! This is not the first post about these two obviously. I have already discussed them and mentioned my interest in the ship with the Teacher Teacher single post! Speaking of which, I am still dying for the Making of of that PV! If some can find the photoshoot for the covers with their magic, I will do anything for a copy!
Anyway, the bottom line is that I have been down for some YuYuYu (Yuki x YuiYui) content and then YouTube came through with these videos of the girls promoting this new game that I am sure I will never play! In addition to these three there was Miion, KatoRena, Rin (Okabe) and Narumi (8). And if you were wondering, yes, Miion wanted a part of that beef and KatoRena looked like she was already missing Team B!
Anyway, this is not me moving on so soon after…We all know no one will ever replace her in Yukirin’s life but this is me, I have been shipping others with Yukirin even when ‘she’ was still around! Again, read them fics –>
And so I am putting it out there that I am dying for some YuYuYu content and if you all have come across some that I have not, please do share! I sure hope AKS do continue pairing these up in somethings to come! I mean, it looks like she is being made out to be the new AKB face but she is still green so they need that powerhouse to give a little pushing hand!
Now, if only they used their brains and gave us a single centred by these two! Eh, I know I am wishing on a fallen star, I mean, this is the same company that had MAYUKI for 11 years and never gave them a single! Like, talk about worst management ever! But we are all tired of singing that song, especially now that it shall never ever be heard so let’s move on…
I don’t get the kinda negative reception for this short film. Sure it took its time to get there but these days it seems no one appreciates patience! And it’s not like we did not get anything until the very last minute! There were a lot of signs from the get go that would be appreciated by those used to subtext!
Seriously, I was surprised that no one seemed to pick up on the vibes between our girls in that world! They were inseparable! If they were not wearing the same clothes, they had their hair done the same way, the exact same way! In some cases it was both their clothes and hair done in the exact same way!
They walked almost shoulder to shoulder, ate the exact same food, god, I think even their lockers where next to each other! I can excuse the girls themselves for not seeing the signs between them sooner but not the other people! So when the guys and their friends caught the two making out at the party and shouted ‘LESBIANS’ I was like, took you long enough you oblivious fools!
And it was not just the aesthetics, there were moments where our to girls would get lost in one another, in the usual scenes – like the make-up scene, or the first step of getting laid – making eye contact! Sure this whole thing would have been majorly improved if the creators did what everyone was expecting, like, instead of seducing the guy, the girls actually ended up seducing themselves. Or had a practice session in kissing and following what the instructions were telling us about sticking tongues in the other’s mouth or kissing other parts of the body other than the mouth or something.
But really, how clichéd would that have been? There would have been substance but would have lacked finesse and where is the fun in that? We have seen it all and if you can think of it then why make it? You know it already so why not be given something you aren’t expecting?
Anyway, I loved the build up and that made the payoff that much more glorious! Those kisses were wonderful and I know they meant more to the girls because they got to have them at that time. If they had already kissed before the party then there would have been less impact! In fact I am sure they would have gone farther with the guys because the writers had an excuse to take them that far then.
But other than the yuri, the film really looked great, professional even! Hell, there is even a soundtrack for it, something that I have never seen before! I will link the soundtrack video too after the caps.
Really, I am not saying the film as it is missed anything but I wish it was a full feature film! I think there is potential there and I kind of want some drama between the girls because of the crush one has on that guy! Or both being jealous of the other because of the guys.
But, time was short and we got the best that we could have gotten in the given time so I have no regrets!
Anyway, jump over for caps and vids and I’ll be seeing ya
I have never seen so much kissing in a music video as there is in Tenny’s 159cm!
Yeah yeah, I know it’s late but surely no one thought I wouldn’t write about this awesome MV! But I am not going to lie to you too when I say I did not have a moment where I threw my hands up in the air with eyes rolling, ready to ditch it towards the end of the MV!
Yeah, they got me good there!
I am of course talking about that suicide fake-out! Seeing that gun wash up on shore, followed by the shot of ‘gay shoes’ lying there all wet and covered in sand…Yeah, I thought we were going to get another BAD END! But the joke was on me when the girls, looking all happy, came and swept up their shoes and ran off, to where, only God knows!
Though I would like to think that they went back to their homes and faced their monster parents and fought for their love! If I were our glasses girl, I would so like to see what my Dad had to say about my Mom having an affair with the Priest! Pretty sure hers is the worst of the two ‘crimes’!
As for the story and our girls, I am very curious as to what their connection is! Judging from their uniforms, they are going to different schools and yet they are almost inseparable meaning that the most logical conclusions would be them being childhood friends! Though if they were, glasses Girl’s mother would not be so toxic towards the other girl, right? If they grew up together, she would have been used to their closeness and in support of their friendship so question mark there!
From what I gathered, they hadn’t really gone that extra mile in the time before this MV and while she ended up making it seem playful, I am sure sailor Girl was really taken aback by that first kiss. Interesting too, in the beginning, it was glasses Girl that was the confident one, the one that made the moves onto Sailor Girl but after her parents caught them, it was then the sailor Girl that took the lead and was the confident one!
I mean glasses girl did show confidence when she faced down her father but the moments after showed that she was reflecting, probably even questioning if she was doing the right thing! A period most of us goes through and is usually either makes you or breaks you and ends a many true love stories!
Thankfully she had sailor Girl to be there and remind her of their love and from what it seems like, they have chosen their love over society and the norm! Now, I so would have loved to see the sequel but some times things are better left ambiguous! Sometimes that makes all the difference! Example being how I loved the ending of Sharp Objects in the series much more than I did for the Book!
Anyway, there are two versions of this MV, one normal and the other a Black and White with some B-roll footage. Jump over for caps and links…
It’s been how long exactly? How long since we last saw of one Sasaki Maika? I don’t even remember! All I know is that it’s been too long since I last saw her and it hurts majorly!
It really hurts! Maika had a presence and you really feel her absence especially in their shows! I mostly watch this showroom fortnightly show (Still can’t get my hands on that FreshTV show >.<) and I always feel the pain when I don’t see her there! But it’s been even worse lately especially since she not only wasn’t there during the TIF (Tokyo Idol Festival) but she was also not there during the group’s 1 year anniversary! And I hear she wrote the girls a letter but tough luck of me finding it!
So, the two times we get to watch their performances finally, it is when my Oshii is missing! And it has been a while! I mean TIF didn’t just happen this month! And she was already gone before it even happened!
God, I miss her terribly!
And I am worried because this is very unusual! It is taking way too long! I wish someone would share that letter and what Maika said in it so I could get a little bit of an update as to her situation but alas! Maybe I am looking in the wrong places? And as such I reach out to my Readers who are fans and have a wider reach to help me out if you have heard anything!
Anyway, I have been kind of waiting for her to come back before I continued the series, then thought of doing a post about the girls as I waited for her return, but I just did not have the motivation! And so missing her so much, I decided to go back through all their singles (having seen that she wasn’t even in their 4th single as well!!) and I realised that I did not post about the BTS of the first two singles!
They too do have some Hitomaika moments and then also the eight episode of their mini documentaries arrived in that time and it also had a bot of Hitomaika (well more of the BTS of Teokure CAUTION) so I thought that I might as well…
