Holy Molly Yuuri, what in the name of all happened to you?! This is not how I remember you! Why did you have to go and be all hot and stuff!? No wonder even Sayanee can’t resist you in this new PV from NMB!
So much fic potential in this new PV! But of course the best one was the Sayanee/Yuuri/Uuka/etc one! Homeless, doing all they can to survive, sometimes Yuuri feeding her hunger off of eating Sayanee…Um…Forget I said that! Damn it, can’t un-see that now! I just know I am not going to sleep easy tonight! Will probably dream of these two as well!
I don’t know why, but this ship (yes, I ship it! Sue me!) totally took me by surprise! Usually when I ship someone with another, it is hard getting into another with said girl so it surprised me that I am literally brain-salivating at the idea of Sayuuri (ver 0.1) from this PV!
But then Sayanee went and did a thing that had me shouting…
1000 points from Sayaneedor!
The others got caught by the police and Sayanee comes in only to find them already facing the law but instead of doing something…Sayanee-like, she instead turns tail and runs, even as Yuuri sees her and they connect eyes, she just turns and runs away!
Like, so not cool Sayanee! I believed in you!! Rest assured you won’t be cuddling with Yuuri ever again, unless you go into super training and then break the girls out of jail! Then again, they are underage and this is Japan we are talking about so they won’t be held for long, probably won’t even spend an hour at the station but still, Sayanee did something very uncool!
Then again maybe this wasn’t what happened at all! Maybe Yuuri actually signalled Sayanee to run for it and instead she was the one that saved her instead of Sayanee abandoning her and the others. But then why would she look so guilty afterwards!?
Either way both view-points can be expanded on by Sayanee re-deeming herself or returning the favour of being saved by Yuuri but getting back to the girls and promising to take care of them after she had found a way to make money!
Okay, this is turning into a longer post than I intended so let’s leave it at me totally shipping Yuuri and Sayanee from this PV!
Putting this back at the front because, why not? UZA is the single to beat for me. Years later and it is not only still on my ‘To Go’ playlist but it is also still my No.1 AKB48 song! As it stands my current AKB single song rankings are…
Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai
Kaze wa Fuiteiru
Ponytail to Shushu
And with that, i just had to move this video up to the first page to remind people of how awesome UZA was, and still is! To think that it was hated day one. Not much hate went on still by the single’s release showing how this song just grows on you.
In the video, I put together clips from different performances of UZA and the two music videos. Best song deserves best dance video I say and I think I did good. Anyway, long live UZA! You are still my favourite song.
I just can’t stop listening to this song, especially when I am watching this video.
Seriously, to this day I am still asking myself why Maachun was moved to AKB48! Why?! So she wasn’t at the level of SayaMilky in NMB but even there without the rankings you still felt the powerful presence she had! She was the life of the N stages, their shows, and the butter to the bread that is Sayanee!
I mean just take this clip for example. This is this year’s show. Just feel how so in sync she ahd Sayanee are! Even after this time apart they are still so connected! And she is even funnier than when she is in AKB! I have been noticing that actually! Her talent that makes her so lovely is disappearing into the wind the more time she spends in AKB! Hell, it is even affecting us fans, if this Sousenkyou is any indication! I mean come on, Maachun not making it has to be the clearest message to AKS I have never seen!!
You know, someone jokingly said that Yukirin’s position and screen-time in the Don’t Look Back single was better than her own group’s singles combined and after watching the PV and Team N’s MV, I am inclined to agree! And OMG did Yukirin slay both the cool ‘Don’t Look Back’ and the Sexy ‘Renai Petenshi’ like she had the blood of NaMBa flowing through her veins or what!!! But really, what can one expect? She is after all the Idol no Kishin! I sure hope AKS are taking notes and realising how so under-used and un-appreciated Yukirin is. All her songs are slow songs, she is always left to the back lines like she was some kind of back-up dancer! Seriously, seeing all those singles you wouldn’t think for a second that she was the No.2 of AKB48 better yet No.3 of the whole darn 48G!
She was so cool in Don’t Look Back, didn’t even look like she was breaking a sweat and of course when it comes to sexy Renai Petenshi she is gonna slay, after all, Kuchi Utsushi yo! I was right, this was the single to get and even the fact that I still struck out on getting what has to be one of the sexicoolest Yukirin CD photos to have ever graced the face of the earth
Gimme, me want!!!
The amount of Yukirin screen time in all three of these PVs (including the dance version of Don’t Look Back) was like God food! Not to mention that this is Yukirin’s last NMB single which is really sad! Her time of going all out is already over! And I was so looking forward to seeing her interact with the new Team N! I will never see her together again with Jo-chan and Natsuko now! Baka AKS, always getting in the way of happiness!
Then there is that delicious, delicious surprise PV that hit me like a train! I was like, what’s this? There is a lot of things on this DVD! 10mins? A making of? That’s strange, those are never on the Type A (which I got). So anyway I checked it out disinterested and even when I saw Nana staring with FEELs at a photo that I gave no attention to, nothing really jumped out at me until I saw that flashback of the girls training on the track and my eyes bulged! I had spotted Maachun! I could not believe it! Then the title hit the screen and I cheered!
Sorry Mirurun but when I found out that Nana was not solemnly staring at that photo just because she broke her leg and was sad that she would not get to compete with her friends but rather that she was thinking of Maachun, even going so far as to give us cool Maachun in a flashback, everything else about this PV disappeared and all I saw was Maachun, and Nana and Shinkirou!
I am telling you, with my copy arriving and getting to watch Seishun no Lap time, add in those Draft Meeting from last year clips shown on last night’s AKBINGO, all I was seeing yesterday was AKS mistakes! Their mistake of taking Maachun out of Team N and NMB as a whole and getting the Draftees out of their Teams!!!! Doesn’t anyone in that Management see these and feel the guilty weighing on them? Don’t they see their mistakes?!!
In addition to delicious Maachun (who was missed by Milky too BTW), we also got to see Ainyan!! I think my faced melted right off with how much I was smiling when she appeared! This PV was like a gift from God and I am taking this cd, sealing it away and keeping it until the end of all time!
I didn’t even realise how much I liked Nana until this single! More specifically until the Lap time PV! Then I thought of Shinkirou and the FEELs hit me from every angle! Now of course Nana was brilliant in Don’t Look Back, nay, she shone the most but that Lap Time PV was in a league of its own! I am going to miss her!
And now Maachun has been taken out of Team B, which means the distance between her and I is increasing since I don’t watch Team A stages that often but seeing as now Team A has two of my 5 Kamis (Sakura and Maachun) and Team B has been reduced from three to one (Ikoma-kun and Maachun out) I might be watching more Team A stages, especially if those two appear as often and really, Team B stages without Yukirin are kind of less delicious! Especially now that Sayaya won’t be there as well. Seriously, I am beginning to think that AKS and I are natural born enemies! I watched those new Draftee videos and frankly there was no one that could ever replace Sayaya! Maybe my mind will change during the actual event but I doubt it that much, now that the point behind the whole thing has been rendered meaningless by those Devils!
Any who, jump over for caps galore of these PVs. No need to point out that Yukirin will dominate of course…
Whatever you may think of Majisuka Gakuen 4, Sakura is the lead and she is one of my Kamis so of course there is gonna be videos of this. First up this one. The song is too short so I decided to leave out some characters since I am definitely going to be doing more.
I wanted to leave Otabe for the last arc with the Bosses but they took up all the time >.< Oh well, Like I said, more vids are incoming so wait for her to show up and kick butt, same goes for White Beard and her crazy BFF.
