Sweet Almighty 2017, are you trying to get rid of me so soon?!
So, Lolly asked me what my No.1 ships were in the 48 Family and X21 so instead of a quick comment, I am using this post for some pics sharing and a wider word spread!
None of these should be a surprise really to all who have been Readers of Yuri goggles for a while now. MAYUKI dominate the Main Dorm in Akihabara, WMatsui, despite the fact that they are a professional ship still are my favourite even as I have yet to see blog pics of the two being lovey dovey. Seriously I know they might be busy or something but still…Not even one!?! Talk about bad Fan-service! Thank the Lord for the PVs!
HKT is mainly about my personal tastes than anything else because I have yet to find an actual honest to God couple. They all haven’t found a firm ground yet being all flighty, maybe Madoka/Natssun. I had found a grounded ship in Chori/Aanyan but alas, they went and dismantled them with the transfers! And speaking of transfers…
Damn you management, damn you! All the fucks I’ve given about NMB since the shuffles have only to do with Yukirin and we all know how little of her appearance in there is. NMB has gone from being my favourite group and Team N almost thrashing Team B for favourite Team and me watching every single N stage to me not even caring anymore! They even split up my Shuuka, like…
I guess I under-estimated how much Maachun really meant to me. Seriously I thought I loved that girl but not to this extent! I didn’t think her leaving NMB would make me lose so much interest in it to the point of not even watching any of their stages! Since new team N’s debut, I haven’t seen a single NMB stage! I don’t know how she affected me so. Before, I watched almost all Teams’ stages even the KKS (Thanks to Riichan 24hr TV getting me interested in them BTW) but now…Paruru gives more fucks about anything than I do NMB!
Anyway…moving on! It was a hard decision to decide between Yumi/Reika and Ikomiona but my love for Ikoma-kun and Hocchan totally cheated the test to have a perfect score! There is just something about those two and Hocchan’s hobbies give that un-expected spice to the relationship whereas Reika and Yuki are your typical perfect couple and we have enough of those going around so…
As for X21, MaiMai and Miho are still my favourites. I never get tired of the way they watch each other during interviews when the other speaks and how they somehow always end up next to one another. Now granted if you were asking me who was my favourite from their TV show, then of course Rina and Ichigo totally take the cake but that is only within the show’s universe. Outside in the real world, I actually ship Ichigo with someone else so…
Any way, I hope this answered your question perfectly Lolly! Be seeing you around (I hope)
Well, I was just going to post that vid ‘First Love’ I did all the way back onto my BG YT account but I decided to change some things all together. No idea why I did it but someone might like it any way so here goes…
Rena proud of her girl
No way Lady Liberty lost to a JK, No WAY!!!
If anything, she reminded everyone who is the fuck she is!
So, here we are! I totally missed the live streaming of this and a day had passed even before I could get my hands on a video to watch! Which is why I was saved from total combustion from the awesomeness that too place during this 4th battle for the 34 AKB48 single senbatsu! Tumblr had already spoiled me silly with all the good things way before I got to watch the video which is why the enthusiasm is lacking in writing this post because…it already happened even before I watched the video myself.
But in no way did that kill my excitement completely. I still lost my everything at MayuYukirin and dat Sakura-tan! Not to mention the real purpose of the Janken – Fashion! Because let’s be honest, that is the only deal that makes this thing as exciting as it can be! Would you really sit through this otherwise? Where the Centre wins every battle with a single move?! Are all the girls that dumb as to not think of throwing scissors even once after seeing what Jurina had done the first few rounds?! Well, they are Idols so maybe…
Any way, what I am trying to say is that after the first time, Janken senbatsu lost its excitement about the one who wins centre and it is now about the other stuff! Stuff like Watanabe-sensei, Sakura-tan, Lady Liberty, Waruki, Angel Mio, BOSS and Yuko-sama! Stuff like that makes sitting through 4 hours worth it!
The one and only Champion of GAY48 since the dawn of time – KUMINON (Yagami Kumi ϟ Kimoto Kanon)
From SKE48’s 8th single Kataomoi FINALLY,
Will the help of WMatsui (Matsui Rena ϟ Matsui Jurina)
Will take on all the apparently top couples of SKE from the extras of the 11th single Choco no Dorei.
The battle will be fought with nothing but mouths.
We are all aware of the fearsome and un-paralleled power of KUMINON and I confess I still have good dreams about a single that was released exactly a year ago!
Can these couples, with a little help from WMatsui themselves (don’t expect kisses from them –_-), stand a drop of a chance at beating eternal champions?
We here are of the community and we are not so cracked that we would not give anyone a chance.
So, let’s give them a benefit of a doubt and let them put up their best fight.
Let’s get this party started…..
First challenger up is…
Hello there Dear Readers,
First I wish to welcome another Reader of Yuri-Goggles Jennifer. Not only is she new here but it seems she just got into JPOP and Asian media. Jennifer had the chance to watch the First Love video and had a good few important questions that she wanted answers to so she asked for help. Sensing the good girl she is, (well those lovely words did do wonders for me. I love me some compliments too from time to time) I figured that I had to answer those questions for her. Besides, there may be other new members to the fandom that have similar questions so why not take care if that now.
To answer Jennifer’s questions, I am going to use my video – First Love to answer them for her, in that most of them were related to that video.
For a more depth take on JPOP or Asian POP really and other stuff not specifically related to the 48Family, there are good reviews out there for you. Just use the right keywords in your search engine of choice and you won’t go wrong. Asian Media has really grown in the last decade so there is lots of information about that sector all over the internet.
Here I am going to try and explain related things about JPOP, more specifically, the content of First Love.
Let’s begin with the biggest quandary…
What is this? What are these? Are they movies? What?
In other words, a little intro to Idols, PVs and the major groups is in order…
