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!

So the covers and full PV for NGT48’s debut single are out and I totally love it! Such great amount of Yukirin it’s almost shocking! Seriously, it’s even more than what she gets in a frikkin AKB single PV it’s madness! I’m not sure if they are making up for the 315 incident or if I have to thank Sony for getting shit done but either way I am very happy and thank whoever is responsible!

HaruMaria VS Haruna2

Alright, that’s it! I am convinced that there are spies who frequent here from H!P and AKS! There is no other explanation why things that I speculate on happen from time to time like this! I fail to believe it is a coincidence! Those are too many an occurrence for them to be that and if they were, then why am I not out on the streets making money with my awesome psychic powers!?

And so I have to choose to believe that there are spies among you dear Readers! Okay, who is it? Come now, I am going to bite you! Confess this instant! It will make you feel much better believe me!

Keh, just kidding! Keep up the good work out there, okay!

So, like I said in my last Hello Project post, Team Tsunku has managed to win me over! To those who do not know, believe it or not I was into Hello Project before I was AKB, even though by the time I got into Idols AKB was already on the scene too. At the time I knew nothing at all and it took me a long while to find out that my chosen H!P had already graduated!!! That girl was Mikitty, Fujimoto Miki. And so when my heart sunk after that very first Idol heart-break, I veered away from H!P, even though I had already been drown to the other groups with Yukirin threatening to dethrone Mikitty as my Koshii (Kami Oshii)! It was during this period when Mikitty’s absence hit me hard, that I discovered AKB!

Since then it was a challenge getting back into H!P and with more girls leaving that I was used to, well, things did not get any better! It wasn’t until the 9th Gen came onto the scene that my interest in that area kind of sparked a new life within me, and then not until Ikubo Haruna appeared and made me ship her with Michishige, in addition with these new groups forming around them that were bringing interesting new girls that I started to secretly keep an eye out for H!P happenings!

But even then I was not fully back in yet! Until now! It could have actually been earlier but MeiMei’s graduation pushed that back a bit! With the power of yuri though, in my H!P top ship in HaruMaria (Iikubo Harina and Makino Maria), add in my growing interesting in other groups and ships and well, resistance is futile! Haruna2 (Iikubo Haruna and Ogata Haruna), AyaRei (Hamaura Ayano and Inoue Rei) of Kobushi Factory, MaiSaki (Ozeki Mai and Morito Chisaki) of Country Girls, TomoYuki (Kanazawa Tomoko and Takagi Sayuki) of Juice=Juice and Kisao (Niinuma Kisora and Akiyama Mao) of Tsubaki Factory, have proven to be quite the irresistible attractions!

So, what of this spy business, well, I was mentioning some time back how HaruMaria seemed to be losing fervour because it seemed like Haruna2 were being pushed, in that Ogata seemed to becoming the new partner for Iikubo but then the PVs for their new single hit and what do those awesome guys go and do? Not only do they still LET THEM FIGHT, but they also let Maria win, totally putting me in a completely win-win situation! I was getting kind of sad seeing that they seemed to be dropping my Top Ship but then at the same time I was totally falling in love with Haruna2. So, you see my position, and when they went and not only did they give me both HaruMaria but also Haruna2, make HaruMaria the dominant ship once more, after making them fight, well, let’s just say someone is very happy to be alive!

Now to be fair it is not just the yuri that hooked me back into H!P. They are doing something now that made AKB famous but totally seem to have forgotten about in their blindness due to all the cask around them and that is the importance of the lyrics of their songs!

Like, have you dear Readers listened to their latest songs? And this applies to all groups! You should totally follow them on Youtube. They always release the promotional versions of their songs even before release day in full and with English subtitles! Seriously, H!P is going to be at the top soon once again if they keep this new strategy up! And the quality of their PVs, Jesus! Only the 46 Family on Team Yasusu even dreams of touching the quality of H!P’s PVs! And don’t get me started on their LIVEs, especially the those awesome, awesome Hello Project Seasonal Festivals! The first time I watched one, which was the Winter 2015 one, I almost cried out in disbelief! LIVEs were so supposed to be the Team Yasusu’s Holy Grail but the only one worth anything recently has been the Kojimatsuri and that is obviously a one-time thing!

But I am getting distracted once again. Back to the lyrics, all of their songs are so relevant it surprises me how Tsunku can come up with so many topics relevant to the world at the moment for each group! That’s two or three songs for each single from each group! And they are all quality songs! For example, in the current singles releasing/soon to be released, Morning Musume 17 are all about the jealous between girls in their song ‘Jealousy Jealousy’, which I am surprised no one has written a song about yet, otherwise there would be outcry of copypasta, amirite?! Meanwhile Tsubaki Factory are also talking about the state of the internet right in their song ‘Just Try’, which is about rumour-mongering and spreading the hate because people prefer to discuss bad news instead of the good. And these are only from the latest of the releases!

And it is evident that people are beginning to notice so if H!P keeps this up, they are going to pull a Ryzen in this Idol world and now that they are back, the prospect of my Goddess graduating (with her waifu) doesn’t seem to doom-like to my Idol life! It will surely take me a few months to get back but at least I have somewhere to get back to now! So, great work Hello!Project!

Alright, enough talk, time to get to the REAL meaning behind the Jealousy Jealousy song. While everyone else is focusing on the lyrics, taking them at face value, there is me on the other hand, me, who was actually the target for this song! All I saw in the Jealousy Jealousy PV was the fight going on between Maria and Haruna(O).

Country Girls – Good Boy / Bad Girl

Looks like Hello! Project is out for blood, my blood! They are really determined in their quest to win me back and I have been trying to resist. I almost succeeded some months back when one of my Kamis (MeiMei of Angerme) graduated but since she wasn’t my Goddess of H!P (that is the one and only Morning! Musume 17’s Ikubo Haruna – who dethroned Yurina of Berryz), I was still connected to H!P.

H!P then went and pulled a couple on me, and one of their wild cards was my H!P top ship as of now – Country Girls’ ChisaMai (Ozeki Mai and Morito Chisaki). I have had my eye on these two for months and months now and with the new PV of theirs, I have just been forced to break one of my customs. Usually a Master Ship of an Idol group I follow has the Kami as one side of the coin but this time things are different. ChisaMai just took over as my H!P master ship.

This did not just happen! There has to have been something previously of the two for them to have enough force to dethrone HaruMaria. First off there has been a lack of HaruMaria and I have found myself actually leaning more towards HaruHaru/Haruna2/WHaruna/HarunaxHaruna (M!M17’s Ikubo Haruna and Ogata Haruna). I still haven’t decided on which ship name to go for yet but I have found them very attractive recently, especially since it seems OHaruna has replaced Maria as IHaruna’s partner in their PVs.
