For Yuri!

You know, I am not sure who I am more disappointed in; myself, or you dear Readers!

Like, why am I just now finding out about Nogizaka 46’s NOYOUNA SONZAI Music Video?! I am pretty sure that I follow their official YouTube channel so how did I manage to miss this? They did post it there, right? I mean they usually post their MVs there!

Okay, sure, I have kind of been avoiding Nogizaka since my Oshimen left (Ikoma-kun to those who don’t know), but even still! This is yuri we are talking about here! How did I miss this?! Like, there are probably even subtitles already out as I type this, which I need to hunt down BTW, because the song too sounds super gay!

But on the other hand, why did nobody tell me about this? I sure don’t remember making it known that I was taking a break from Nogizaka and that I shouldn’t be disturbed with content from them! So, why did nobody mention this to me?

Oh well, I guess we all are to blame here but hey, in the end we got to it, right? Better late than never, right?

As for the Music Video at hand, visually it is magnificent, but really, aren’t all 46G MVs just so beautifully shot and made! But even amongst them there still are those that stand above and beyond and this is one of them! This, is the kind of quality I want in my videos! Seriously, AKB needs to take major lessons from whatever company handles the 46G MVs! And AKB hasn’t always been this bad! You should see the RIVER, BEGINNER, SAKURA and UZA MVs (to mention but a few)! Strangely while anyone else would be up-ing their game, AKB just got worse!

Anyway, back to NOYOUNA SONZAI, the visuals are great, and I love the song that accompanies it as well and its subject of the complexities of Love! But even if it is true, that Love is complicated, that doesn’t mean that I am going to let the shenanigans slide! Like literally the rest of the story was about Mai pinning after Asuka. Like, her love was blatant and while one can argue that it might have been playful affection, the ending says otherwise! She really loved Asuka.

So then why the hell did she just so brutally reject Asuka when she finally returned those feelings by going in to kiss Mai?! Like, I think it is the worse kind of rejection, when the mood feels right, you both have feelings for one another, and then when you feel it is the right time and lean in to kiss your love, they turn away from you!

Like, that is the worst kind of rejection! And what’s even worse is that it isn’t an actual rejection! She does love Asuka so like, why the fuck!?!

And then she goes and kisses a sleeping Asuka and I am like, so the fuck what?! Then again, seeing as it was on the cheek, maybe she really did not LOVE love Asuka and it was more of a familial affection! That being said we don’t even know the context of them! Are they best friends? Are they Senpai/Kouhai? Are they Teacher/Student? Hell, is it Mai-nee-san?

We don’t know but then again, MVs are always like this! They are like poems! You have to feel in your own blanks and come up with your own interpretation of what the fuck is what!

Either way, if they were trying to convey how complex love is, they did not succeed! Here it’s more like, Love it simple but it is the people that make it complicated for no apparent reasons! Yeah like I said the relationship to each other might be what makes things complicated but even then, they sure didn’t leave any grey areas in what their feelings were, well, Mai certainly didn’t!! And yet she went and just denied Asuka the kiss, after she finally showed her cards in this relationship!

Listen to me losing it over a music video…Hahaha!

I really loved these two here too. Asuka totally reminded me of Techi, especially from the movie HIBIKI, and Mai was total fun to watch in this! Like, I could totally be down for a full series of these two! Do it Nogi, what are you waiting for!?

Anyhow, jump over for the MV and more caps…

Nogizaka Under Construction ep98

You all have no idea how much I so wanted what just happened in this week’s Under Construction! Ever since last year, when during the episode where some girls were asked to come up with club ideas and the members had to choose which club to join, though Ikoma-kun’s Mountain Climbing Club did not have the most members, it sure had most of my favourites!

Ikoma-kun (as the president), Minami-chan and Manatsu returning (from the Mount Fuji event way back during the 10th single promotion in 2014), Asuka-chan, Miria and Ranze , two of my 2nd gen biases! Like, how more perfect could this even have been?! Too bad Miona did not get to vote as she was also a pitcher of club ideas but I have a feeling if she were not she would so be on Team Ikoma!

I have been praying for Management to do something with that club ever since then because it was just too good to pass up! Seriously, as of the latest single, all members of this club have been centres before! Ranze and Miria, in fact got their centres after the club idea! Coincidence that they go to centre Undergirls soon after? Maybe, maybe not!

Okay, so Mana-tan was more like a unit (with Nanase) than a Centre but somehow I think now that is a better deal, right?

But anyway, I can’t believe this has finally happened! I have just so been hooked on Miria and Ranze lately from the 2nd gen and seeing them getting Centres (Ranze for the 16th single Undergirls and Miria for this 17th Undergirls) feels so good but finally getting them all together with my Nogizaka Kami Ikoma-kun and her waifu Minami-chan, in addition to my first loli complex Asuka, well, this is a cause for celebration!

But first I have to mention that love letter from Miria-chan to Ikoma-kun during the 7rh season of NOGIBINGO…

Same Ikoma-kun, same!

What’s that? There is no Ikoma-kun you say?

Exactly!!!

Seriously, remember when we spent years crying out for another danso episode? I most certainly do! And while the target of our cries let us down (I am looking at you AKBINGO!), Nogizaka was there for us and to date, I have even forgotten how many danso episodes we have gotten in between NOGIBINGO, Nogizakatte doko and Under Construction! All I know is that in the current season of NOGIBINGO, in less than 10 episodes we have already gotten two separate Danso episodes!! Like dear Nogizaka, are you after my own heart?! If not for Yukirin, you would definitely have all of it but as things stand, I can’t help but only give you just a portion of it!

Yes, that is how strong my love for Yukirin is. We are all wondering what in the name of all that is Holly AKB is doing currently and I am not blind to that. But I just love Yukirin so much that AKB has to come first, no matter the circumstances! Well, within the Yasusu project that is. If we are including others, well, there is Tokyo Girls’ Style and T-ara across the seas who are well above them.

But it’s not just the shows that has got me loving Nogizaka a lot more these past moments. I have begun to notice a lot of other girls, and okay, so maybe the shows have more to do with it as I have noticed these girls on said shows, but despite being there for a while now, there are some girls that are getting to me recently and I just can’t help but fall for them. Examples 2nd Gen Nogizaka members Miria, Ranze and Kitano and then there are the Keyakizaka girls that I haave already mentioned before; Ozeki, WRika, Imaizumi, Neru, Suzumoto, Uemura, Shiida and Koike.

Now take all that new blossoming love and add in a large dose of Danso and yuri and great music and really, I am proud to have resisted the temptation to fully convert over to the 46 branch family! Oh, how I wish I had the time! My muse is going crazy with all these dreams of fic material I keep having! Mostly they have to do with Ikoma-kun, which is obvious since she is my Nogi Kami and have had quite a few ideas of her and the new crushes since that episode of Under Construction where the girls were pitching ideas for an out-door event and Ikoma-kun suggested Mountain Climbing the Revenge which shockingly got support from all the un-expected members. Most shocking was Minami-chan, who despite having not had a good time the first time when they went to Mount Fuji, she wanted to go again once again showing her support for her husband! (I am an avid shipper in case you could not tell! Ikominami are the Mayuki of Nogizaka). But then Ranze, Miria and even Asuka were also up for some more mountain climbing and I am sitting here wondering when the hell are we going to get that episode!!! Get to it Nogizaka, before the girls start leaving!

But once again I have got and got side-tracked! Getting back to business, we once again got such a lovely Danso episode! And while I was conflicted about Ikoma-kun not participating I kind of didn’t want to do without her reactions as well so…Oh well, the two boys we got were perfect in Waka-sama and Kazumin. And I know that Nogizaka is just playing coy with us and that they are cooking up something for us. Just you wait, one of these days we are going to get another Ikominami, or even Ikomiria, especially now after that episode where Miria kind of showed a bit of her love for Ikoma-kun, who seems to be loved by the 2nd gens quite a bit. Heh, now that I remember, in that episode Miona didn’t waste the opportunity to remind us that she was the first 2nd gen to get the Iko-love! And since Ranze already centred a song, I can see Miria being next, or maybe they want to keep pushing Ranze, or maybe they will remind us that Miona is the Ace of 2nd gen, who knows! Whatever the case maybe, I am waiting!

And I just went and got distracted again, didn’t I!

So, we had three segments, or three ships in our terms. There was the threesome in Manatsu/Waka-sama/Reika, then there was the looked forward to Nanase/Kazumin and finally we had yet another threesome in Waka-sama/Asuka/Kazumin. Not to beat around the bush, this was a competition, as it usually is and the winner was only non-threesome couple which made me feel better about myself in that I truly do not like threesomes in any shape or form! Butt on the other hand, I was kind of disappointed! I mean I am one of those that used to ship Kazumin and Nanase, before I found out they were just friends (no, really) and before I knew Kazumin was in love with Nojo and before I discovered that Ikoma-kun would kiss the ground Nanase walks on. Speaking of, Ikoma-kun was the one that did not vote for Nanase out of the three, surprising me but also making me proud at the same time.

Let’s start with that couple actually! Just as Ikoma-kun said, and probably why she did not vote for Nanase and Kazumin, their story was just too clichéd! You called what was going to happen next a mile away! But then you have to remember that it is that cheesiness that most people love! It is why there are more romance and drama movies than any other medium. Nothing new can happen in those plots anymore and yet people drink them up like some super special chocomochalatteespresccino drink. You knew Kazumin was going to glance towards Nanase before he even did it, you knew he would grab Nanase’s hand to prevent her from leaving before he had even thought it. Now not to say it wasn’t good at that. No, despite knowing that it still hit home, which I guess is why everyone loves these types of movies despite seeing something similar countless times before. It is about what it makes you feel in that moment.

Kazumin and Nanase were really great in it. Nanase especially so. Her acting experience was put to good use when they gave her more body language than actual words and you could really feel this secret history between them two at that high school re-union after years apart. Still, that being said, it is still a cliché and I would not have gone for it out of the three couple. The other that I would not have voted for out of the three is the first ship with Manatsu, Waka-sama and Reika!

Yes, yes, we get it already! You want us to drop the Waka-sama/Reika love story but just like many times before, your efforts are in vain! We shall board that ship until it sinks to the bottom of the emptiness of Space! In other words, never!! Play off it however much you want! Push Waka-sama and Nanase in your PVs, pair Waka-sama with someone else in your Danso episodes, have Waka-sama dump Reika as many times as you want like you did here, we won’t bite!

This is the reason why I would not have gone with this ship. You did not have to step on Reika and Waka-sama’s love for this! And just when we got Reika to actually confess to Waka-sama they go and turn her into a bitch that does not deserve the love! If they had kept her love as one-sided, in that she loved Waka-sama but instead kept it to herself in favour of her best friend Manatsu and only show her broken self as she watches her friend and secret love be happy, it could have been No1 for sure! Add in the fact that Manatsu was actually tolerable in this and we would have had an Oscar nominee on our hands! But alas!

Which brings me to what should have won this tourney, especially given that this is a Danso episode! Not only did we get both Waka-sama and Kazumin for the grand slam, they were fighting over our main girl in all their manliness! Like, what the heck Judges! How could you not vote for this ship?! Maybe it had something to do with Asuka’s choice? Putting aside the fact that she chose Kazumin over Waka-sama, I mean let’s be honest here, Waka-sama is SAMA but then again maybe that twist was the point? But then wouldn’t you have had Kazumin be the under-dog instead of having them be equal?

In which case, I guess the reason they did not win is that Asuka made the wrong choice! Not in choosing Kazumin over Waka-sama but rather in choosing one of them. Seriously I thought she would either not pick one in that she did not have those kinds of feelings for them (which is understandable in that they grew up together and there is a tendency to develop feelings in those situations but they usually get nowhere) or at the very least don’t because you love both of them equally!

I mean they were presented as being equal in all aspects so her choosing just one of them was just so un-nerving! I mean, how are they going to be after this? Even if Waka-sama showed support as he left, don’t forget that (even if I don’t think it was on purpose) we did not see his face. What feelings did he have showing? How hurt was he? Was their love worth the years of friendship in case Waka-sama decides to break away from them? I mean if you were in his shoes, what would you feel seeing them every day knowing that they have that something now between them that is beyond you? How will you have to act now towards them? When will you know where your line stops in order to not over-step? What of your feelings? Will you not feel bitterness towards Kazumin even a little knowing that he has something with Asuka now that you do not and never will?

Okay, now I am not so sure about who should have won. I guess the judges were right in that when weighing the negatives, the Kazumin/Nanase ship was less heavy compared to the other two but since I am not one for that kind of thing (I do not hate pain, okay?) I guess that two Danso are still better than one and let’s not forget about them gakuran and that old-school seifuku Asuka was wearing! Seeing as I just did a marathon of Sukeban Deka Series II (I love that series so much! Saki/Yukino FTW) I still have a strong love for those uniforms. And so Kazumin/Asuka/Waka-sama it is for me (even though I don’t like threesomes but hey, it did not end in one so…)

Ooh but on the other hand Nanase and Kazumin had an atomic bomb of hand-holding going on courtesy of director Marika so…aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Okay fine, fine! Kazumin and Nanase win! I give in! Hands are my kryptonite after all!  That is so unfair Marika!

Anyway, I can’t wait for more. Hopefully tonight’s episode is a continuation. I need more!

NOGIBINGO! Oneesama no Imouto

Dear NOGIBINGO, why are you so damn awesome?!

Seriously, I want to know! They have only had just over 50 episodes so far and yet it feels like they have had more segments than AKBINGO has had in its 350+ episode run! Just this week they introduced a whole new segment! Meanwhile in AKBINGO, they are doing the fashion segment for like, the nth time now! What are they, some kind of advertising company? I miss the actual fashion show that began it all – you know the Coplay one that was, now that I think about it, hosted by Ijiri! Ah the irony!

Meanwhile NOGIBINGO knows what the fans want and they are still delivering in aces even as the segments are new and no longer copies of the old AKBINGO ones. That was like so season one, they are on the 5th now and things are getting better still. I mean come on, a segment where the girls get to act out their mousou lives as Oneesama with the members of their choice as their Imouto?! What is more awesome than that? Seriously, it almost even beats Danso for me because if you think about it, even though under the Danso they are still girls, the concept is that they are guys during those Danso segments so it is actually not yuri. Meanwhile here we get to not only have actual girl and girl, but this is essentially wincest!

Very interesting that they chose this segment now especially when you think that on 4chan people call each other Oneesama instead of Anon. I wonder if someone in AKBINGO production is a member of /u/. I can’t think it a coincidence that they chose the Oneesama segment for this season.

The couples this first time ever were kind of a mixed bag for me at first but that was only because I was expecting different couples. But then I thought that the couples I was thinking about wouldn’t work as sisters and more as lovers so I watched the episode again and enjoyed it immensely for what it was. I actually came away with a ship or two as well.

Thank you NOGIBINGO!

Nogizaka just won’t let it go!

Just when I think Nogizaka singles couldn’t possibly get any more awesome, the latest, the 11th, goes and proves me wrong! You know those mini-drama episodes that come with the singles? You know, the ones that previously were solo? Yeah, I got tired of those real fast to the point of not remembering when I last watched them. It was precisely that reason that I decided to watch them now, I mean something must have changed, right?! They couldn’t possibly do the same thing for all those singles!

My curiosity was rewarded grandly! This time they paired up the members (sometimes more than two) for each mini drama and it might just be me but the quality sky-rocketed so high! Seriously, some of these would pass for a full feature length! Like the NGS ship (Wakatsuki-sama and Nanase) one or that Ikoma-kun and Marika one too! Seriously there was some good stuff this time around! And I gotta say it right now, the cuteness of that Asuka/Minami video was out of this world! I am a secret shipper (secret no more I guess) of these two and have been waiting for something of the two and viola! But let’s begin with the one that birthed the title of this post!

freak-out-and-ship-everything

Okay guys, a question first of all;

Is it really Yasusu that writes both Nogizaka and AKBG songs? Because it seems to me like the quality of Nogizaka is leaps above that of the 48 Family! Seriously, that track record for Nogizaka is frightening! All those awesome songs they have released on every single so far demands a deeper look into the matter! I don’t think there has been a Nogizaka single that has been criticised so far and not because the group is not at the 48G level and thus attracts less attention but because their songs are so good! Every single has had at least one song that hit right home!

But that’s not all, for in addition to great songs, Nogizaka give them some of the best PVs around! I am really beginning to question the validity of Yasusu being the sole writer of all these songs! if that’s the case then does that mean he drafts songs and gives the best one to NGZ?

Any way that aside, Finally got around to enjoying Ikuchan’s single in all its loveliness and this one PV caught my complete attention. The main girls in it are 1st Gens Itou Marika, Asuka and Inoue Sayuri. by the way, her name is like this in Japanese: 井上小百合. Yeah, those last two characters caught my attention alright! That’s the way we write yuri in Japanese. And by that I mean the YURI! So how can I resist the ship?
