You know what you need to do!

Black-saaaaaaaan!

Oh how I’ve missed thee! Feels like a lifetime since we last got a Majisuka Gakuen series, let alone one with her! Heck, it feels almost as long with Centre too! Seriously, I about broke out in tears seeing them again! And they took a pic together!

God, even frikkin Nacchu is making me emotional!!

Actually, aren’t they like, the only two major characters left from the original Majisuka Series? That of course is Series 1 and 2 that I am talking about.

The feels…

Great, now I feel like writing another Majisuka fic! And why not, I have had this urge to do a crossover between Series 1/2 and Majimuri. Centering on Black and Lily of course. Center, Kaiser and Eins as supporting characters too.

Damn, I knew I had it bad for Majisuka Gakuen but I did not think it would be this bad! I mean, it’s been literally years and there is no more Gekikara…

*cries*

Speaking of which, who dares to wear Gekikara’s uniform! In the presence of Black to boot! I don’t care about the other characters, you can wear Maeda’s uniform, you can wear Sado’s uniform, you can wear Nezumi’s but Gekikara?!

That’s where I draw the line!

Speaking of, why didn’t YuiYui wear her Lily costume?! They should have a crossover with all the characters wearing their own but alas… This is AKS we are talking about here. Great decisions-making hasn’t been on the memo since 2012!

As for where these are from, the girls attended the #MUSICDAY event and I guess they performed either Majisuka Rock n Roll, Majijyo Teppen Blues or Yankee Soul, if they are adamant about keeping the original characters’ costumes.

While we are on the subject, I remembered that I have yet to write about Trouble in the Supermarket, the Majisuka Play centering on Black-san. When I get time for a re-watch, I will.

Anywho have a lovely Sat.

Still Legendary

So, there is something I should have done way before now that I am about to go do. I think I am ready (I am not). I mean, it’s been what, one and half years? Surely I am okay now (No, I’m really not). So please, wish me luck (Please do, I will need it).

Yukirin no Natsu ga Hajimaru [Stage]

yukirin stage

June 30th START

So, another Yukirin Stage is on the way to us and shockingly, sooner than expected. The new stage, titled Boku no Natsu ga Hajimaruyo, which roughly translates to My Summer has begun or as I prefer, My Summer is Here, will start this month.

That’s June 30th.

That’s in like a week! And it’s not like they have just been keeping it a secret or anything. No, they have only begun and in fact Yukirin says that they have only practiced just two songs. The stage starts in approximately 10 days and they have only begun?

So, even though we won’t know what songs the stage has, it is Yukirin, so I am ready for another hit. She not only has great taste, but she’s got experience as well, having produced the 9th KKS stage before, whose setlist was hit.

We also know what the concept and the why of the stage. The why is that all AKB48 members can participate and that means all five teams of the group. The members will basically rotate out all the time until every member has performed. This is not about replacing the member that is out sick or busy, no, this is about everyone having a piece of that pie.

Members that would otherwise never have met on stage other than group concerts will meet in this stage. Like, this is a one of a kind stage and what better person to come up with such a selfless idea!

Yes, Yukirin took this idea to management herself and being such an awesome idea, they had no choice but to give the stamp of approval. Useless hacks, can’t even come up with new interesting concepts to the point of the members going to them.

Seriously, it’s been so long since I was excited about anything from this group. It’s now a shadow of its former self and that’s just sad. Their reality shows are boring, there are scarcely any outside projects. Concerts are a rarity and don’t get me started on those single lineups!

Something new and different like this Boku no Natsu stage is what we have been missing and while there won’t be new songs to go with that, it still puts some excitement into us elite fans.

The line-up for this stage is like this:

· Kashiwagi Yuki

· Oguri Yui

· Mukaichi Mion

· Yokoyama Yui (Might not make it for the 1st performance)

· Iwatate Saho

· Okabe Rin

· Okada Nana

· Komiyama Haruka

· Murayama Yuiri

· Asai Nanami

· Kurano Narumi

· Omori Maho

· Taniguchi Megu

· Fukuoka Seina

· Nishikawa Rei

· Yasuda Kana

· Suzuki Kurumi (Replacement for Yuihan in case)

And there you have it – the first batters of this new and intriguing stage!

I of course am more looking forward to Yukirin mingling with all these other girls, especially with YuiYui and Asai Nanami. Heh, what can I say? She got to me When I saw her in that AKBINGO special where she went on a drive with Yukirin, YuiYui, Shiichan and that other new Fisher girl. Her height first of all! She is I think even taller than Yukirin and she has that likeable soft personality on her that I just… She does remind me of Yukirin of the old too.

YuiYui is a no brainer. She is currently my crack ship with Yukirin. My previous was Matsui Rena so you can imagine what a big deal this is to me. Too bad AKS can’t even think of making another unique drama where their new Face is playing off their Best Elite.

But what’s new? Really?

Good thing this stage is only 10 days away because I can’t wait for it..

[AKBINGO] Heuston, We Have A Problem!

190521 AKBINGO! ep542.ts - 11;43;11.309

What I was promised!

190528 AKBINGO! ep543.ts - 02;15;09.139
190528 AKBINGO! ep543.ts - 02;18;06.454 190528 AKBINGO! ep543.ts - 02;30;58.105

What I got!

Like, what in God’s name happened here!!?

I haven’t seen this…phenomena happen to AKBINGO! in like, a long time! Nay, I don’t even remember this happening before! Now, I would understand if there was a long gap between episodes but these 6 days between each other! What happened?!

This is the first time I have seen something like this happen to Yukirin, correction, first time I would have seen something like this happen to Yukirin! Outside of Mayuyu of course! And they just went and denied us! Right after teasing us like that!!

Not cool AKBINGO! not cool!

As to what’s going on, they are doing one of the regular segments these days, I call it the Confession Baseball! The subject at hand was members telling of their un-Idol like things they have done and out dear Ishida Chiho from STU48 came out about her finding ‘the crack’ irresistible! She got to pick two members she has most wanted to ‘check out’ and she picks Team 8’s Oguri Yui and soon to graduate Sashiko, Sashihara Rino!

“What about Yukirin?”

That’s my line!

Anyway, while it was great seeing Chiho poke YuiYui and Sashiko’s butts, I am still very heart-broken that I did not get to see a younger member get her way with Yukirin! You all know how hard it is to get her in these kinds of situations and this one of the few times we do, they deny us!?!

[Pics] Team B – Kawaii dake ja nai Concert

So, yesterday Takahashi Team B (That would be Takahashi Juri to the newbies, welcome by the way) had their solo concert leading up to the Request Hour of this year. In case no one knows, Yukirin is everything to me and of course that would mean that Team B comes with the territory as my favourite Team.

This time around though there are a lot of girls and I have to confess that I am not yet familiar with all of them, especially the new Team 8 (I know the first gens) and the KKS girls! But I am getting there and having watched a few stages and the new Concert releases, I am getting there!

I am not sure if I talked about this new Team before. Usually I talk about all new Team B formations so I am going to briefly mention my thoughts on this new Team and might get back to it later once I have gotten to know all the girls. And sadly the team has already lost girls. Miyu is gone and Hiichan is off to Korea for two years as a member of I-ZONE but at least they left behind one performance with all the rest in that first performance during the ‘Jaabbajaatte nani?”  concert.

I was of course saddened too that Rei-chan left and that Sayaya did not come back cause I still don’t understand the reasons for the Team Ballots if the members we going to be shifted to different teams later on anyway! I guess it could be worse, Yukirin could have been transferred out of Team B, which as of now, that would be a crime against the Universe and I am sure that it would fight back to right that wrong and bring balance back to life!

What’s done is done so I loved on to appreciate the new Team and the first thing I was happy about was Juri! I really loved her and Yukirin’s interactions during, what I like to call Yukirin’s 2nd stage (after B5 – Theatre no Megami) which most know as SS7! Just search for SS7 on Aidoru!Online in case you want that stage! I really love SS7 and correct me if I am wrong but it is not over yet, right? There hasn’t been a Last Performance stage for it, right? I really love that stage, especially LOVE TRIP! Yukirin nails that song so hard!

So when Juri came over to Team B, and not only that but she is the captain, I was really happy. I wanted to see their continued chem and bickering! In terms of people, the other choice I was really happy about was Megu! I have a really soft spot for that girl! And especially when she is paired with Yukirin. Which of course means that you won’t be surprised when I say that I got into her after I saw her and Yukirin’s Temo Demo Namida. They have an energy to them that is kind of similar! Just look at the pics above!

Another great thing about this new team, is actually in the title they chose for this concert. They are not only cute (which is an image that has been long associated with Team B, no matter the members) but they are much more this time around! Not only do we have Oya Shizuka but we have Nakanishi Shiori as well! That there is the comedians and Yukirin and Juri fall a little in that department! In addition, a lot of the girls are mature which gives it that mature and sexy identity as well. In addition to that, they have also added girls to give it that cool factor, mostly from Team 8 but looking at the images from yesterday’s concert, most of them just need the reason and they have their game faces on!

Speaking of, they apparently performed BEGINNER, RIVER and NO WAY MAN! in succession! Talk about over-tuning expectations! Of course they are cute too, this is Team B we are talking about! It can turn anyone cute! To think that the eldest member on AKB48 is in this team, and that she is still the staple of Idol image…hehehe

I am loving this team as time goes by and I can’t wait for this concert to drop! Now if you will forgive me, I am off to watch their Stage that came with the Concert Blurays so I can enjoy Theatre no Megami 2.0 in full quality!
