We are not about to get a Negima show with Ikoma as Negima and my new Team 8 flame Utada Hatsuka as part of the cast! I don’t believe it! This is a dream! It gotta be!
I..I literally have no words
Yep! That be me!
It’s been too long since we had a Goddess worshipping post and while my love for Idols is waning slowly (God, these graduations take a toll on a person!) my love for a certain woman is still undying! And with the latest Ravijour images…well…even if I was a skeleton I would be fully revived!
And not only that but the new single Teacher Teacher has me wishing Yukirin was a KPOP member…Oh wait, there is this new Korean project with the 48 family, right?! Well, I guess that explains the weirdness of the concept of the new single!
Also for once I feel like Yukirin has gotten the right amount of screen time in an MV since, like, forever! So really, where Yukirin is concerned, everything is just perfect!It is enough to drown out the bad things going on right now with all the graduations and thus saying goodbye to a sister group.
But positivity today, positivity!
Seeing those pics from today’s AKB concert really puts a smile on my face! I dare not believe nor have false hope because this is probably PR and Yukirin isn’t new Team B’s center (most especially with other teams having their centers center) but oh, it feels so gud! It looks so Team B that I am surprised I am surprised! I mean Yukirin is there! She is like the physical form of Team B’s soul! It is as if it’s now in her blood. Oh wait…(yes, she is blood type B as well)
Anyway now that I am almost done with Nogi, time to invest back in AKB and some other groups. =LOVE, STU48 and KKZ46 are calling! For now I better get back to AKB and savour the limited time I have with Yukirin because when she goes, that’s the end of the line for me as well in the Idol world.
The new Team Stages start in June, if I got it correct and once again Team B is getting to go last >_> almost towards the end of the month. Oh well, good things come to those who wait and all that! I really can’t wait to see this new Team and how they interact. I can’t wait to see Hitomi-chan join Juri-chan in teasing the heck out of Yukirin! Will Happiness lose her bullied character to Yukirin’s bullied character? How are these new girls personality-wise? How is our very own Harima-chan? What of the two lolis from Team A? Megu-chan is here to stay (after performing Temo Demo with Yukirin) so will she be paired with Yukirin in units? Will the Juri/Yukirin dynamics from Yukirin’s Stage (SS7) spill over? (Obviously but still)
Ah the anticipation is killing me!
And then there is the wait for this concert to drop publicly…
Lemon-chan, you go girl!
Can’t believe that her stage play (of the same name) got turned into a movie! The design and everything reminds me of Noushou Sakuretsu Girl (which reminds me, I have yet to share my thoughts on that movie!) and I wouldn’t be surprised if the same team were behind this one too!
As for yuri, the trailer looks promising but this being the type of movie that it looks to me (Life Games eh…) I have low hopes of a GOOD END! But like I have said sometimes BAD ENDs are not so bad given the context.
And I am curious about the relationships too. From these trailers I can see two possibilities where our main character Sena (Miorin) is concerned. First there is Yudachi (Ririka) with whom Sena is presented on the posters. It also looks like it is her that she is about to kiss there. At least for this one I know it will survive towards the end of the movie, at the very least. What is bothering me is the possibility of the two being P&A and thus ending up clashing in the climax.
Then there is the other possibility in Araso (Moeka) but something tells me she is not going to survive this one! I mean, not only is she pretty low on the character list but she did not even appear in the pictured characters in the other trailer! Yeah, her future doesn’t look bright but who knows, maybe she is not going to b a part of the whole ‘game’ thing…
Wishful thinking I know but the way she was being all tender with Sena there (lying on top of her) they looked to good that I am already falling into my trap of shipping characters before I watch the damn story! This habit of mine has almost always backfired on me and I have a feeling it is going to here!
But I don’t care! Anyway even if the bad happens there is still Yudachi and she will probably even be better developed so chances are I will get to like her anyway!
Enough talk, the trailers and caps…
Sweet baby Jesus!
Okay, first of all, I am pretty sure that they released different versions of these PVs on this album compared to the PVs that were originally released because dear Lord, I do not remember this much gayness in some of these PVs! I am of course talking mostly about AMBULANCE and Mizu no Naka no Dendouritsu, both of which I have already talked about!
Seriously, especially that Mizu no Nana PV, Jesus! There was so much gayness in there I do not remember! And that Suuchan/Azunyan kiss, there was so much more screen time this time around I swear it!
Nay, there is only one thing to do, I am going to have to go through all PVs all over again and just write about them again because this is just…I already awarded AMBULANCE a handful of awards and re-visiting I am inclined to add some more! That PV was just too godly!
And let’s not forget about that Cap-led Mizu no Naka MV either! So much gayness, so much hand-sex, so many kisses, more so than I remember seeing before. I really should have paid attention since it was essentially a gang bang but I was not paying attention to the other girls, now I see the error of my ways!
Yes, another album with Bluray quality MVs from AKB, you know what that means!
Sadly that post has to wait for a while. I am not going to be able to post anything for two weeks or so but I wanted to at least get this reminder out there.
So much gayness!
Hang n there until next time you all…
Yukirin has gone through more partners almost as much as Batman has his side-kicks!
Yes, I just implanted that thought in your head and it will never go away, not now, not forever! And as such it both saddens and makes me happy! I just hope she is not going to turn into Batfleck at the beginning of BvS in 10 years (get it?)!
This post though is about LOD performances with two particular partners in Milky and OgiYuka! I have wanted to write about that Saturday Night unit of Yukirin and Milky’s for a while but I totally forgot about it! Then NGT48’s NIII 3rd Stage hit and the memories came flooding right back!
But first, let me talk about the title and then we shall move on! Way back in the day (around 2010s), it was usually Rena that was the default partner to Yukirin, most especially in MVs! This of course oiled down outside that into the Majisuka Gakuen show, Shuunkan AKB and Mechaike shows and then some Concerts. Those two had a similar vibe that Yukirin has with all the mentioned girls, despite each girl being similar to her in a different way. For Rena it was more about their outer personalities. Also there is that fact that they were the same age! Seeing their age next to their names next to each other was satisfying to say the least!
Then there is this mysterious connection between her and Kojiharu! Mysterious because no one knows exactly what it is only simply boiling it down to their sexisness (These two have had to go head to head in the AKB Kouhaku more than once) but it goes much deeper than that. On the surface they are so polar they negate one another. Kojiharu’s graduation concert was full of this hilarity! And yet when you put them together they fit, if you demagnetized the pieces first of course! We have seen their combi enough times both in MVs and in concerts too.
Then there is Milky! She is perhaps easier to connect with Yukirin as they are both very known for being the Fish Masters. On Yukirin’s side it will only be old school fans that know this part of her side because she was basically the person that invented the term ‘Kami Taiyou’. She was the first Handshake Queen, proving that there is power in that event when she became the person that broke the Kami 7 wall and blew it into oblivion (was changed to Kami 8 soon after) when she too the 3rd position right next to Acchan and Yuuko because of the fans she garnered in Handshakes!
Fans, even none fans now of course know it was not a gimmick! She is always like that! TV shows, Theatres, Stages, Radio! She is always full of life! Which I think is the reason that she is no longer referred to as much as the Fishing Queen. Milky and Daasu are the prefect description of that term. And so Milky is similar to Yukirin in that way. This has also proven to be a reason to put them together!
The first time they were paired together was during Managu (Manatsu no Sounds Good) MV where the Elite were paired with the so-called Next gen (when is this next exactly?). Then Yukirin went to NMB Team N and then Milky came to AKB Team B and things escalated from there. Despite being hated by the Osaka fans back then and having been there for a short time, she got a new duet with Milky, a sexy new duet, where we first got to see her release the inner beast, with her grabbing Milky’s assets (And probably thinking of them before going to bed the following nights *wink*) in Heart no Dokusen*.
But all these girls are gone now! The obvious choice , always the first choice, Waifu Mayuyu (*cries some more*) is also leaving! But the Queen is still here and she still needs that partner to share her brilliance with!
Enter NGT48’s Ogino Yuka!
Before even things were made public to us in this decision, gears were already turning! Nay, even before this time the gears were already in motion! We go all the way back to even OgiYuka and Gatanee were official NGT members! I am of course talking about those two’s Baito Days where they worked for, not were members of, AKB48.
These two already met back then! It was after then, it was because of then, when the members helped Mayuyu get Yukirin a present (already tastes like chocolate in here) that Yukirin got to meet these girls and it was in meeting them then that she and Kitarie chose them as the starting members of NGT48.
Then skip forward and before the miracle of SSK2017 even happened, fate was already on the move! Yukirin and OgiYuka were already decided to be partners in the 3rd Stage of NGT48. The opening performance of which I have taken these caps from!
Then came the SSK where the impossible happened, once again! Now that I think about it, almost all of these partnerships have produced a kind of miracle! With Kojiharu Yukirin had her first Center position. While Yukirin was slaying Kamis in SSK, Rena was slaying Kamis in Majisuka Gakuen as Gekikara! And then here comes OgiYuka!
OgiYuka who came out of no where and not only made it into Senbatsu but she took, of all the positions, she took Yukirin’s previous position in SSK!!! Yukirin who had decided this time to not participate! Only to find out merely days later that these very two people are actually in the same unit in the new Stage?!!!
I was all kinds of shook that I do not even remotely blame the people who shouted of conspiracies because this was just so far out field it was abnormal! To me though things were not as drastic, as I have seen my Queen do some impressive things already! All I got was enlightenment! The heart-felt hugs during the Showroom of the SSK made more sense when I saw the two in their new song ‘Zankoku na Ame’!
Yukirin (And Kitarie) already mean so much to OgiYuka and Gatanee! Speaking of Gatanee, sometimes I even think of Gatanee sometimes I even think of Yukirin as her ‘pot of gold’. If you remember a certain NGT Stage where they played a game and whoever Yukirin picked from the random names would be the Center of Flying Get, Yukirin picked Gatanee’s name! Gatanee was Center because of Yukirin! And if you look here in SSK, as we know unlike NMB, here Yukirin has quite a fanbase in NGT so had she taken part in SSK, there is no doubt there would have been a rally to drive someone to the top and between the two the one with the most chance would have been Yukirin!
So, even if unintentional or otherwise, Yukirin not participating saw to OgiYuka breaking all kinds of logical laws! And before now I had never even entertained the thought that these two would be compatible in any way! But then I saw the performance. And I was crying!
Yukirin is like ‘The Bridge between the People’! With Kojiharu and Miichan especially, she broke the boundaries of Gens. With Rena, Milky and OgiYuka, the bridged the Families of 48! With OgiYuka, Moechan, Okappa-chan, the Kouhai can mix better with the Elite Senpai. And most especially with Mayuyu, she showed that same-gens don’t have to come down to rivalry! We see the fruits of this most clearly with NGT!
And it is at this very moment that I realise I have lost the point of this post! Oh well, I have a lot of caps for you all to chew on after the jump in regards to Milky and OgiYuka’s LOD partnership and I will conclude that I am all up for OgiYuka taking over as the official partner to Yukirin! Before this new Stage my best option was Yuihan but that thread seems almost pale in comparison! I don’t know what happened in that performance but something just clicked with me! Maybe some one will see it after seeing the pics?
Anyway, yeah, see ya around…
I’m just finding it funny that everyone is all over Keyakizaka now because they are doing all these cool MVs and I a over here like, where were you when the AKB48 Fall single was the Cool one?
All seem to have forgotten that it was these cool singles that started the Million trend! Well, Yasusu remembers which is why he dedicated those types of songs to Keyakizaka. Everyone is all drooling thinking KKZ is the best thing since sliced bread meanwhile Yasusu is laughing his way to the bank!
Anyway, forever promoting UZA! That is one of the few songs that never left my On the Go playlist. Add in that kick ass choreo and well. And now that I can post these vids, maybe I should do more dance vids of the 48 group. Kazeifu, River, BEGINNER, BwT etc need some more love too. Too bad there is like, only 1 full performance of BwT and no Dance Ver. I want so bad to make a vid about it! I guess I have to wait for the Next PV BD Collection.
