Look, I just want to make things clear. I was only kidding with my first post about these three. I am just your friendly neighbourhood shipper!
Little did I know that months before then, things were already happening! So, there I was going through Yukirin’s twitter feed looking for those Mayuyu Grad pics, having finally gotten up the courage to do so, and what do I find?!!
Yukirin took the two frikkin Yuis to a dinner date!! And of course she had to sit right opposite them and they her! And look at their faces! They are so happy! Why am I just finding out about this date right now?! Yeah sure, I was in a state back then but not everyone else was like me! I follow a lot of Yukirin Fans and they never miss reposting her pics so, how did I miss this?!
No matter the reason for that get together, they are equally interesting whether they were work or leisure related. If it was leisure, how? Why these three?! And if it was work, the Leader of the 48G, the next Leader and the new Face? Very intriguing stuff indeed!
But this is a competition and there has to be a winner! This is not even bias but Yukirin herself made a decision in a later post…
Yeah. And if you caught on, you will see that Miion was also present but hey, she is no Yui and this is the battle of the Yuis and Yukirin knows it too it seems so…
Anyway YuiYui wins this round. Next though we go to Mayuyu’s graduation Stage. Speaking of that stage, I made a mistake watching it first thinking that it will deal less damage compared to the concert. Even worse I thought that disc 2 would be that much more forgiving!
I was wrong!
Disc 2 of the Graduation Stage was the worst! It was an instant K.O! Those who have seen it will understand what I am talking about! Basically I relived all 12 years MAYUKI spent together and ruled as the one and only greatest ship in the Idol industry!
After five tries I am not even at the halfway mark of that video! So I gave up and decided to go to Disc 1 first. In it, we begun out with some pre-stage show and what a gift!! In the actual stage, when the first verse of SHONICHI begins and the main four including Mayuki and the two Yuis touch hands and rotate around each other, we focus on Mayuyu and Yuihan’s side, which makes sense seeing as it is her graduation. So I was really, stupidly happy when that short behind the scenes video of that practice showed Yukirin and YuiYui’s side during that part!
Unsurprisingly I was giddy with excitement and Yukirin acting all shy when she connected eyes with YuiYui finished me off and seeing them holding hands buried me (Before the MAYUKI glance revived me!)!
This is not good Yuihan! It’s 2-0 in favour of YuiYui! And the next round is a sure win too because speaking of the same stage just before it begins, the girls are assembled as usual to do the Team B call and guess who are right next to each other? YuYuYu of course! That’s YuiYui x Yukirin to those who don’t know!
Yukirin turns to her left, looking to no one in particular but YuiYui probably thinks that Yukirin is looking at her so she looks at Yukirin but Yukirin wasn’t so when she feels YuiYui looking at her she look back and the two once again do the eye thing! Interestingly this time, unlike during the rehearsal, it is YuiYui who looks down all shy-shy when Yukirin gives her a smile!
Yeah, I am far gone with these two! At this rate I should just give in and write a fic about them! It has been a while in that department after all and this feeling is strong enough to give me the needed energy to get back into that side of the community!
Another win for YuiYui but really, Yuihan had no chance here. Next battle should be more balanced. Enter the latest performance during the Ongakusai programme where the group performed on a freaking ocean cruise (that was fire!)!
When the girls break up in groups to during Fortune Cookie, somehow Yukirin ends up with the two Yuis. Seriously, it’s like the gods are smiling upon me! Anyway, tough spot for Yuihan here just from appearance alone when YuiYui is spotting almost the exact ‘Do as Yukirin! Poniterin (Ponytail Yukirin – Yes, it’s a thing) is best Yukirin and when YuiYui is matching best Yukirin, well, what else can be said? I mean, hell, even their tails were swing in unison!! Not only that but they are almost the same length! Like…
And then when the girls gather together again, YuiYui is front center meanwhile Yukirin is middle center, basically, the perfect line-up! When you zoom into YuiYui you have to capture Yukirin too right behind her! And also the debate of which is the actual center continues…Front of Middle? But really, Yukirin is the middle type of center. She is more of a support/foundation than a front. And we love her dearly for it!
Anyway, to conclude, this was more or less a one-sided battle really! Though you should not sleep on Yuihan. The next battle will have to do with photos and believe you me, you have not seen the best of Yuihan yet! That girl has all the firepower she needs! She isn’t the Leader for nothing!
