YES! OMG She Knows!

DDQK4N0VwAAkn5E

Dear Readers, if you have ever wondered if Yukirin (and I think we can agree Mayuyu too) knows what the term ‘MAYUKI’ is, wonder no farther! She knows! She so knows it! She knows is in all its entirety and meaning!

No, I do not mean this in context, I mean it as it is! You know how Japanese (and many other fans) call MAYUKI MayuYukirin as their ship name? You have probably had that moment where you were confused as to what to actually call them, especially when AKS finally officially named them MayuYukirin when they released that duo song of theirs.

I should know, I have had a moment where I was conflicted and almost got rid of the MAYUKI tags from my blog! Thank God I decided on using both because during this Saturday’s Yukirin Time Radio, Yukirin finally put to rest that unease by letting us know that she knows!

Apparently the Chinese Fans call them MAYUKI as well which is where she heard it first. She says it confused her thinking that it was just a nickname until some English Speaking Fans explained to her that it actually was another word for MayuYukirin.

Hmmm, English Speaking Fans…Was that you Maddie? Come now, don’t be shy! Fess up!

In case you don’t believe me, here is an excerpt of that show. Sorry no subs but even without understanding Japanese you should pick up the relevant words…

Sayaya!

Like, this is no regular SSK, this is the YUKIRIN BOWL!

Jesus, I have never seen so much hugging, hand and eye sex in the same sitting like I have done with this 9th SSK Showroom special hosted by none other than yours truly, the Idol of Idols – Kashiwagi Yuki!

Dear Yasusu, whenever you ever look to retire, do not worry, there is a worth successor to your Kingdom. Yes, I know who you are thinking of already but you know, just in case you ever have to fall back to plan B, I am just saying!

But that is talk for other people, what I am interested in is the real subject at hand and that is WHO WON THE YUKIRIN BOWL?! That is going to be a tough one! And yes, that implies that Mayuyu might not have had it easy this time around! But that explanation requires details and time for those I do not have right now. There were of course some disappointments, I am of course looking at you Okappa-chan, Sakura-tan and Sashiko too! Actually add Sayaya and Jurina on that list too. I was expecting something from them and I did not get it but hey, competition was really tough and some already gave up all the way from the get go when Mayuyu struck the first blow! A blow that only the Soukantoku could counter by managing to take some points off the table in the early stages before the game even started!

Seriously, if you haven’t watched this showroom yet, you watched the wrong SSK! Get to it already! There are countless copies of this on YouTube, A!O has it too (though I do not recommend their copy. It skips a lot towards the last 3rd of the video).

But even though the battle is to soon be decided, here are my Top contenders:

  • Mayuyu (of Course)
  • Miichan
  • OgiYuka
  • Yuihan
  • Hinatan
  • Komiharu
  • Gatanee

Okay, that doesn’t help at all, huh? Well, that is all I can do. But really, who am I kidding, you all know Mayuyu is going to be in the Top 2 so…

Anyway, chew on this for a while and I will see you soon…

Happy 10th Anni Mayuki!!

Oops sorry, I meant Team B!

Happy anniversary Team B! My favourite Team! Is, has been and will always be (as long as Yukirin is part of it) my favourite Team Yasusu team! Team N almost stole that title when Yukirin was a Kennin over there which meant that two of my Oshii (Yukirin and Maachun) were part of the same team, not to mention that Sayanee, who was my first NMB crush, is also part of Team N! And don’t get me started on that Tenshi ga iru stage! It is second only to B5 (Megami), in terms watch times! And in case someone is interested, the third position goes to Party, thanks to Team 8, NIII and SKE KKS!

Ten years that Mayuki has been together! Like how even?! From the very beginning they were put in a position where they were supposed to be rivals, destined even but these two totally beat fate in that they never followed the rules of the universe that any other pairing follows in that they are rivals first and friends later! Never once did there seem to be rivalry between Mayuki, not even once!

Despite Mayuyu always taking the Ace position, for the Team, Yukirin was almost like a double Ace but as always never being the first. Only next to Mayuyu, and sometimes even more than her, she got the most lines in songs and centre positions. She was also one that took over as MC whenever Cindy was not around in the early days, most notably in the team B show AKB48+10.

Speaking of, I am feeling nostalgia, after all these pics of the anniversary LIVE where almost all the original members came back to perform. 12 members in total showed up, all things considered that is not bad. Not bad at all! And so after this I am going to re-watch that AKB48+10 show, all stages from B1 to B5, the 2009 Request Hour and the early AKBINGO episodes, before it was even called AKBINGO!

Ten years, this also makes Yukirin the member who has been with any team out of all the Teams, the longest! Indeed, she is true Blood! Oh man, now I wish she entered SSK! I mean, can you imagine if she won, on Team B’s anniversary? There is no telling if after being so loyal maybe Team B and colour blue would have finally given her back some luck! I can just imagine the headlines ‘ Kashiwagi Yuki (25) – The true Team B member finally wins SSK on it’s 10 year anniversary!’

Dammit all!

Seriously though, how have Mayuki managed to survive all these years?! And it’s not like Mayuyu is not competitive because she really is! Yukirin everyone knows would choose peace any day of the week but even then it doesn’t work like that! Only one person can’t make things work. otherwise there would be less violence in this world! So how?!

The only mystery of the universe I know of!

Anyway, some more pics of the 3rds….

MAYUKI Unit Song?! FINALLY!

mayuki
♫ I Feel Like Listening to Sad Songs! ♫

Me too Mayuki, me too!

I did not think the song would really be that sad but by the gods! Even with my half-assed Japanese I am already feeling choked up! But it is when thinking of Yukirin as a fan and all these past years and what has come that the FEELs really hit you! But then when you add in the possible future, in the case that this song is kind of telling (which I don’t think it is and don’t want it to) and my dearest Reader, you are a goner!

I am waiting for my people to translate the lyrics but in case some of you want to try Google translate (Do it verse by verse) then the Japanese Lyrics are after the jump! So are the songs too to those who don’t know where to find them!

Damn though, this is one sad song, and it is so good! I can listen to the instrumentals all day and then add in the fact that Mayuyu and Yukirin actually sing this seriously with feeling and if you do not get choked up even a bit listening to this then you my dear friend, are in need of dire help!

They are so good together here and I am still scratching my head with pure wonder as to why we have yet to have a Mayuki single! Like, WTF even AKS! like, this SSK Election single would have been the perfect chance, it being the 48th single and all but we are talking about AKS here! Actually listening to this song, I just realised how so appropriate the Green Flash Covers (See pic) would have been had this been an actual MAYUKI single! Type A with Mayuyu. Type B with Yukirin then Type C with Mayuki half put together and the image turning full Mayuyu or Yukirin with the trick of the light when you turn it one way or the other!

Get to this AKS!!!

Seriously, what a lovely song! it is so going on to my To-Go Playlist! In case you happen to see a sad person listening to music on the Bus dear Dubliners, you now know who!

Have a listen before you jump over for the lyrics and bytes!
