Sweet Baby Jesus!

I had almost forgotten how so frikkin gay SKE48’s 8th Single was…is!

Yes, I know it is a crime worth the death penalty, that I have not written a dedicated post about this MV after all this time! I mean I have written many an article about the single already but not the typical Music Video posts I usually do! So please, go ahead and punish me, I accept your wrath!

Almost 7 years…It’s almost 7 years since this single released for crying out loud! Jan 2012, Shall never forget that moment, nay, shall never forget the end of 2011! We got teasers of the single right around Christmas and if that was not the best ever Christmas present from AKS, I don’t know what presents are!

To this day, not a single from the 48 Family, 46 Family and that includes our sisters overseas, has come even close to the epicness and balls this 8th single from SaKaE 48 had! What is even more mind-blowing is that there was much more to this Music Video that was cut, from the sheer out-there-ness of it! More about this after the jump!

There have been Music Videos from other Idol groups and Artists that have come close but not any of the immediate family holds a candle to this single! And it is not just about the gayness, just like the songs of gens long gone, the song was powerful in it’s own right! These are a rarely these days! The possibility of getting one might even reduce me to tears, because that’s how rare they are!

Seriously though, it’s been so long that current fans would not even recognise most of the girls in this Music Video! Yes, that includes both the fans that were here back then and the new! For me though, SKE48 was the shit back then! At the time I think they were my favourite because of WMatsui as MAYUKI was pretty weak back then! So while I did not have them on my mind, as soon as I saw the girls’ faces, I instantly remembered, their names, their ship partners their teams and how gay they were!

This single was such a surprise, it made the controversy of AKB48’s 17th Single HEAVY ROTATION seem like kindergarteners crying over spilled milk! It not only boosted SKE48’s rep but the girls themselves got attention outside of WMatsui! Revisiting the MV, I am still shook that AKS manages to release this at all! Like, there is no way in hell they can release something remotely close to this nowadays! I mean like, this was after the backlash at Heavy Rotation but AKS was like, “Take this L and stick it up yours Fools!”

And don’t get me started on the quality of this MV! SKE48 Music Videos have always been miles ahead of AKB48’s when it came to quality but that is really not saying much! AKB MVs are easily the worst quality out of all the sisters!! But damn, this was 2012! Look at that production quality! Not just about the actual visual Q but also the themes, the camera-work, the editing…God!

But to be fair, I was too blinded by the GAY back then to care about quality! And really, AKB’s MVs at the time were pretty decent! I mean those were the days of BEGINNER (Epic), Flying Get (Miracle), Sakura no ki ni narou (Emotion)! Those were some of the best produced MVs from AKB48!

Ah the FEELs just thinking of those years…Things were perfect back then!

Anyway moving on…

CROW’S BLOOD 01 – Yuri-sense Overloading!!

Okay, this has been way overdue but I am glad I waited because the other day I was re-watching episode one after getting the second episode in HQ and I noticed something very, very interesting. Now of course this might as well be just the fruit of my CBS shipping heart but who cares. This is how I do things. I approach media with the couples that I dig and my ship in this drama is of course CBS.

Not to brag as well but notice how even my subconscious is great at detecting non-yuri? I am an avid shipper of Mayuki and if you are shocked by that, shame on you, but you must have noticed that I have not mentioned Mayuki in context of this show even before it aired! We knew nothing then but as if my conscious was looking out for me, I never even entertained the idea of Mayuki in this show, or as we should know it Mai/Kaoru!

Instead my mind was all on CBS AKA Mai/Maki. I have deluded myself more than I should already about this ship but then it was just my inner shipper going out of control basing my happies on just what could be instead of what has been.

Well, forget delusions! After the two episodes my delusions are seemingly on their way to becoming reality! Seriously, my jaw dropped the more Mai/Maki scenes we got and more of this when we get to episode 2 but for now, let’s stick with the first episode.

Before I go into it let me tell you that interesting something that I noticed. So we know Maki and Kaoru are the two leads. What is that something that every leading character has? A relationship. In some cases where it is a duo lead story like this, the two mains are usually put into the relationship and even when it looks like they aren’t, they eventually end up together because it was all for the drama. That is usually in romance stories.

Now, one might argue that Crow’s Blood is no romance story but all who have seen both episodes know what is going on with Kaoru and that Dude! Seriously by the end of the second episode Kaoru is ready to have that Dude’s babies! More on Kaoru’s side of things later.

So, they have obviously given Kaoru a love interest and no matter how you look at it, Kaoru/Maki is not happening! So Kaoru has her emotional corner covered that leaves the other lead Maki. What about Maki? Where is her emotional anchor? Are they going to leave her hanging while they take care of Kaoru so well? Is it because she is kinda zombie and thus unable to be in one? Bullshit! We have seen enough evidence to know that Maki has feelings. She is like Arcueid in Tsukihime/Melty Blood, or Alucard in Hellsing or the Wolfman or any other lead in the monster-led story. She is the Beast and so she must have her Beauty. In other story structures, the Beauty would have been Kaoru but we know now that is not the case in Crow’s Blood. In fact it couldn’t be farther from that.

Yes, Maki is going around kissing girls left and right (by the end of episode one – zero, but by two – four!!!) but of course there is no romantic meaning behind that, otherwise that last kiss in the second episode would make things super awkward!

And so there I was, re-watching the first episode and then going on to the second and then my brain exploded in wonderful chocolatey fireworks! I found the Beauty to Maki’s Beast. I found Maki’s emotional anchor. I found her relationship thread in a character that shocked me beyond belief…

Mai!

Yes, I had had delusions of this before the series started but of course that was all in my mind and never did I think that there would actually be something to it until the shows began! My mind was completely blown! When that thought occurred to me it grew like a cancer. It could not let go of me to the point of actually, actually, having a dream of this ship! I might not convince you as I might need more evidence with the following episodes and actual results, which might not really happen but let’s take it step by step and begin with this first episode…

Finally, FINALLY!!! Finally dear Yukirinians! Finally we get a public Yukirin Flying Get! Frikkin Finally!!!

Oh Jesus muh FEELs!

Please everyone, give me a moment! I need to savour this moment for all Eternity! Oh God, Yukirin centred Flying Get…Yukirin frikkin centred Flying Get!!! I am so…I don’t even-

Okay, okay! I am trying to be calm over here but it ain’t working! I need a bottle of vitamins to sedate me because I am in dire need of a relaxant! This show was…Oh dearest MUSIC FAIR, and you too Mayuyu!

Thank you so very much all of you! Thank you Mayuyu for taking this day off (probably for CROW’S BLOOD as Sakura-tan was also missing) because if you were here, I am sure Yukirin wouldn’t have had such awesome positions! Thank you Lord, for having this episode be filmed at this exact moment! Thank you MUSIC FAIR, for this awesome show! Thank you!

Oh yes, this is the episode of MUSIC FAIR that aired on the same day as the SSK, hence why it has been in the shadows but calling out to all Yukirinians, if you haven’t watched it, please get out right now and watch it! Such great Yukirin shots, positions and I don’t know if the happiness just made everything that much better, the whole performances were just so great to watch!

The whole episode was dedicated to AKB and they did not even have time for the usual talk as they went straight into the medley of all voting and elections singles up to Halloween Night! As a bonus of course they also did Kimi wa Melody in different costumes!

In addition, we got to see some clips from the past SSKs including cute, cute young Yukirin when she broke the Kami wall for the others to follow suit! Girls took turns centring, with Miion taking over for Yuko as usual, Annin and Souhan for Mayuyu and sometimes Yukirin for Mayuyu as well! Sayanee centred Bokutachi wa T, Renacchi also double cantered!

All was just so marvellous but what took the cake was none other than Yukirin centring FLYING GET! It has bugged me ever since AtsuYuko’s graduation that Yukirin never took over as the Center because to me, Flying Get is Yukirin’s song! In case anyone doesn’t know, that was the single when she went from a Non-Kami to standing right next to THE AtsuYuko!

It was a moment that I shall never forget! My very first SSK I watched LIVE and I remember the screams in the crowds when Yukirin was called! That was a moment I think that shall never be beat! I don’t that even getting No.1 now would gain the same reaction now. It might come close but not to have a cigar! It was just such a magical moment!

So whenever I saw Yukirin standing on the side while others took over for Acchan I was like, seriously?!

But now, finally! We finally get it! I don’t even care that it was scraps because Mayuyu was not there! They could have easily had Annin or Souhan centre this time even without Mayuyu so this is a sure cause for FEELs and dear Readers do I have FEELs!

Forget about SSK, where the only good thing was seeing the Kashiwagi Children rank and  move up (Sayaya >.<~) this right here is what has made my weekend! And it wasn’t just centring Furage, Yukirin had some great positions in this! Be it middle, back or front…Just…Hanyan~

Thank you Lord. Thank you MUSIC FAIR! Thank you Mayuyu!

And dearest Kragorin, about your question…

haha

Jump over for more caps…

kuuu

Well, that was sure surprising! Not only did they go on a date together to an amusement park, first of all, how did Sayaya manage to accomplish that!?!! Girl have known Yukirin for years and haven’t had that chance yet! Apart from the usual crowd (Sashiko, Miichan Mayuyu etc) I don’t remember Yukirin having a day out with anyone else just the two of them!!! That Sayaya, how!?!! But wait there is more, she has apparently landed herself a guest appearance to Yukirin TIME as well! Not even a month has passed since the date and she has already!!!!

Riorin, what are even doing!?!! I have yet to hear about your chocolate to Yukirin! Sure you already went insane imagining what you would do if Yukirin gave you chocolate for Valentines

Basically she would turn into a Goddess!!! Oh Riorin, still, that choco you are making better be for Yukirin or else Sayaya is gonna beat you! For crying out loud, even Jurina, a girl from Nagoya beat you to it! Girl, you better impress with that hand made chocolate!

But while all that is well and good, Yukirin, a person we know who sucks at cooking, (Have you ever seen her cook? me neither!) went out her way and made Soukantoku chocolate!!! I mean this is their last valentine as members but still! You better preserve that chocolate Takamina, for it’s the most precious thing!

Yukirin really is Black hearted! Probably having read about Riorin’s fantasies, she went and got her a whole bag of chocolates! What is it you want the poor girl to do Yukirin, die of happiness!?!!

Yeah, looks like Riorin is a step ahead after all! I mean come on, she went and got a bag of chocolates from Yukirin!!! Then again maybe they were just bought from the shop because I can’t think of Yukirin putting Riorin and Takamina on the same stance, then again, why didn’t she just make extra instead of buying and then making choco’s too!!

Yeah, that Riorin must be the happiest camper this Valentines! Oh yeah, Miion apparently gave Yukirin a cake too. Not chocolate but a whole cake! I only wish there were pics, >.< And not just her, other members too got Yukirin chocos, seriously, she is super hot in the 48G at the moment! I wonder why!
