So, the Natsu Matsuri videos are still dropping and more to come (Still waiting for that Sashiko x Yukirin one yo). Guess who is unfortunate enough to run into Yukirin in the latest video? Sakumeeru, that’s who! Oh and MikuMiku but she was spared by the darkness (you know, still too pure)!
So, Lolly asked me what my No.1 ships were in the 48 Family and X21 so instead of a quick comment, I am using this post for some pics sharing and a wider word spread!
None of these should be a surprise really to all who have been Readers of Yuri goggles for a while now. MAYUKI dominate the Main Dorm in Akihabara, WMatsui, despite the fact that they are a professional ship still are my favourite even as I have yet to see blog pics of the two being lovey dovey. Seriously I know they might be busy or something but still…Not even one!?! Talk about bad Fan-service! Thank the Lord for the PVs!
HKT is mainly about my personal tastes than anything else because I have yet to find an actual honest to God couple. They all haven’t found a firm ground yet being all flighty, maybe Madoka/Natssun. I had found a grounded ship in Chori/Aanyan but alas, they went and dismantled them with the transfers! And speaking of transfers…
Damn you management, damn you! All the fucks I’ve given about NMB since the shuffles have only to do with Yukirin and we all know how little of her appearance in there is. NMB has gone from being my favourite group and Team N almost thrashing Team B for favourite Team and me watching every single N stage to me not even caring anymore! They even split up my Shuuka, like…
I guess I under-estimated how much Maachun really meant to me. Seriously I thought I loved that girl but not to this extent! I didn’t think her leaving NMB would make me lose so much interest in it to the point of not even watching any of their stages! Since new team N’s debut, I haven’t seen a single NMB stage! I don’t know how she affected me so. Before, I watched almost all Teams’ stages even the KKS (Thanks to Riichan 24hr TV getting me interested in them BTW) but now…Paruru gives more fucks about anything than I do NMB!
Anyway…moving on! It was a hard decision to decide between Yumi/Reika and Ikomiona but my love for Ikoma-kun and Hocchan totally cheated the test to have a perfect score! There is just something about those two and Hocchan’s hobbies give that un-expected spice to the relationship whereas Reika and Yuki are your typical perfect couple and we have enough of those going around so…
As for X21, MaiMai and Miho are still my favourites. I never get tired of the way they watch each other during interviews when the other speaks and how they somehow always end up next to one another. Now granted if you were asking me who was my favourite from their TV show, then of course Rina and Ichigo totally take the cake but that is only within the show’s universe. Outside in the real world, I actually ship Ichigo with someone else so…
Any way, I hope this answered your question perfectly Lolly! Be seeing you around (I hope)
Best. Single. Evar!
Seriously, how could they miss an opportunity like this? How could they be filming this and not decide to go back to the drawing board and change Sakura, Haruppi and Mio into boy Princes and all the other girls into Princesses?! You’re losing your magic touch AKS, or whoever is in charge of HKT! Just a couple of years back they would have gone for the kill with an opportunity like this but alas.
|New Team H||Team KIV|
Yeah, let’s not be kidding ourselves here. The Ace of the leading team is the Ace of the whole group. Tashima has centred all HKT singles so kidding ourselves again that there is competition from Haruppi should be erased as well!
Meru is officially HKT48 Centre! All the complaints about a KKS being Centre have just been rendered completely useless. Not only is she an official member but she has been shuffled into Team H.
On the other hand, Sakura-tan has just been dealt an even deeper blow! She has been moved to the newly formed KIV. This is where I am lost as how to feel. On one hand, I am happy that all that heat in H where Haruppi, Sashiko and Sakura-tan were all cramped, has been reduced by taking out the hottest HKT spot Sakura-tan. Which with seeing KIV, she is like the Centre of that team. A fact that even a blind person can see.
But then the other side. Let’s be honest Management is not gonna let her sore over the whole Team. They are gonna make double centres out of her and Mio-chan, you never know.
Another negative is that even though she was to be recognised by management as the Ace of KIV, this decision still feels like her being Centre of the coupling songs in HKT’s singles. In other words, it feels like being served leftovers.
This is mostly personal but I was kind of hoping that Meru would be joining Sakura-tan in H so I can have my official Sakumeeru moments but alas! No more seeing these two in LODs.
This also seems like a challenge to Sakura-tan. Out of the Big4 (Sashiko, Sakura-tan, Haruppi, Meru), three of them are in one team while the other is by herself. The immediate support she has is Aichan as the team’s captain and Mio-chan. If Team KIV manages to rise, better than every other team that comes after the main team, it will be a testament to how powerful Hakata fans feel for Sakura-tan.
Well, she might not have to try hard because I am now officially off HLODs and awaiting the very first KIV1 LODs.
Oh. My. God!
It’s not just Sakura but it seems to me like everyone one of them girls just up-skilled a great deal from their HHL days, which actually isn’t that long ago! I have to confess that I was not expecting much after seeing their ‘green’ performance of their first stages. Girl, was I proved wrong!
First of all that line-up for Himawari-gumi was fine awesome! I love almost all the girls but the little fact that Sakura-tan, Meru, Mio, Akiyoshi, Natsu etc are in this was just so mind-blowing! The other team, if it is to be formed, is just so un-fairly compiled together!
