It’s the only explanation because I still can’t get over the fact that there is an MV out there with this much Yukirin. That there is a single line-up out there that has her spot on centre a few times at the front!
Not even the Kayousai LIVE performance made me get these facts through my thick skull! That just goes to show you how starved we Yukirin fans have been all these years! Well, again like I said, better late than never! We never got a MAYUKI single but I am choosing to believe that AKS so the error of their ways and are looking to avoid repeating that same mistake with Yukirin!
As for the performance, just as I suspected it was not performed in full! Then again the three centers were missing so I guess I forgive them? Speaking of the missing centers (Sakura-tan, Hiichan and Nako), they were replaced by apparently the top three dancers (in what?) in STU48’s Kadowaki Miyuna taking over for Nako, Team 8’s Hijiri taking over for Hitomi and STU48’s Mitsuki for Sakura! Kinda surprised at these replacements. I really need to see those auditions!
Not that I care but I was under the impression that Kanon was considered the best dancer in STU48 and don’t get me started on Team 8! Miyuna is my STU oshii but really? Maybe just a few girls auditioned?! Again, i don’t care and really, these three fit in right fine in the senbatsu!
I of course miss Sakura-tan and I wanted to see my CBS but I don’t know if it was a blessing or what because the relevant parts were not performed so I guess not much was missed! And they did include a BTS of the filming of the MV so I got my dose of CBS then!
Also, also, I had YuiYuki to keep me company and I tell you all now, this ship is really growing on me! Those two had almost the same hair-do in this performance and you would be hard pressed to not think them of as sisters were you to see them on the street waking together looking like this! Is it just me or does YuiYui look like the old Yukirin with her high ponytail?
For some odd reason I noticed them a lot more here. Maybe it’s because Sakura-tan is missing so I can concentrate on YuiYui more or because my love for the ship is growing out of control or the cameramen just can’t resist like I do, either way I love it and them even more than I did a few days back!
Also, also, those mad men just went and did it! They gave me an Easter Egg! Like, I never even imagined that I would ever see an Easter Egg in a Music Video of all places! But those absolute madmen did it when they pulled moment from Teacher Teacher, albeit mirrored, and dropped it right smack middle in No WAN MAN! What am I talking about? This of course…
Speaking of noticing things, can you believe that I did not notice Sashiko in the MV at all! Like, I was surprised to see her on the covers because I did not think she was in the MV! And yet here she is! Was she in the MV? I guess I have to watch it again to make sure! Seriously, I don’t remember seeing her at all!
The song is still growing on me but the dance has got me hooked! I just pray that inevitably they do a full version! Today too though we have to take away the good fact that it was not cut to pieces! It’s one of the things I can’t stand on Korea’s Music Shows! The editing gives brain damage! Here though the camera lingered and let you sock in the dance moves to your fill and when Yukirin was on screen in her uncut glory, I was in heaven!
Seriously, credit where credit is due! Took you long enough but thank you AKS, thank you for giving Yukirin her just desserts! And you know, now I kind of understand why they never gave her the light of day because when she is centre, she literally and figuratively shadows some of if not most of the other girls! Just look at her in that middle spread, she is so powerful >.<
Still can’t believe this is happening!
Absolute madmen for giving me this Egg!
What’s that in front of Yukirin I wonder…
I said shadow…oh forget it. This is no longer shadowing!
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip! That fic is just demanding to be written!

Copied from showbiz.com: Sashihara Rino did not participate in the music video due to poor health condition. But she will join the live performance.
The MV is 5 minutes long. The live performance was only 2’40”. Can’t expect them to perform it full, unless you want to see them passing out at the end of their performance. Just look at them, only performing it half the length and everyone was already out of breath.
But yes, I was hoping to see them perform longer, and I was hoping to see the part where they gather into a close formation and touch each other on the shoulder, with Sakura touching Yukirin’s. Sakura has always been shy to touch Yukirin, just like in Kuchi Utsushi no Chocolate where Sakura shyly touched, no I mean, pushed Yukirin on the shoulder LOL. If it were Mayuyu, she would have touched Yukirin everywhere already. But Sakura is just too shy and polite.
Oh, I ship SakuraYuki and OguriYuki too. Also JurinaYuki, OkadaYuki, JuriYuki, YukiAnnin (Kurofuku), YukiSasshi, etc. Basically Yuki x everyone. Though my eternal ship will always be MaYuki and YukiRena.
Yeah, me too. I now understand why they never make Yukirin as a center. Her aura is too powerful, it’s almost intimidating the others. If she ever gets a solo center long time ago, it will raise more hater/antis of her. Even when the management decided to give her the spot, she had to share it with Kojiharu, because Kojiharu at that time was the only member who will not be too outshined by Yukirin’s aura. Those two have almost the same height and equally charming aura. Now they made Yukirin become Sakura’s shadow, exactly because of the same reason (same height, equally charming/powerful aura). And I don’t think they will ever make Yukirin as a shadow center for Oguri or Jurina. (But I do think it is a big mistake for not giving MaYuki a double center in a single, ever.)
Anyway, isn’t it a wonder that when they gave her the role as dark as ‘Black’ in Majisuka Gakuen back in 2010, they seriously meant it? That role was like a premonition of what the management will treat Yukirin in the future. We know ’Black’ liked to stay in the shadow and rarely gets out to the light of the day.
Oh well, we can only hope they will give Yukirin a solo center for her graduation single.
