Do you all remember that post I made about these girls way back when? I didn’t even know that they were an Idol group, probably were only being formed back then but even after they did, I missed their time as LADYBABY and only got back to them after LADY BEARD left then and their name changed to The Idol Formerly Known as LADYBABY.

Ah but make no mistake, I have known Rei-chan (Black haired) way, way back even before that Escape Dream MV was ever conceived! Before she became this type of idol, she was a different kind of Idol. Try looking up “IMBD Kuromiya Rei” Yes, that’s IMBD not IMDB! Don’t let Google try to correct you! Some of those videos I think are on A!O but I believe they got her surname wrong there. I am sure you will get to them with ‘Rei’ but there are some Reis in H!P so look carefully!

As for the other part of this equation, Kaneko Rie, I don’t know but about her, except for the impossible fact that I think she is cuter than Rei! Rei, Rie, they should have named them K2R or R2 or something!

So anyway, before yesterday, there I was just enjoying some of their subtexty PVs like ‘Easter Bunny’ (See end of post for video) when they went and did the thing! They went and brought Omori Seiko into the mix! Like, you know what is going to happen when you bring Omori Seiko in!

GAYNESS happens!

Like, it wasn’t even an official PV, but rather kind of a behind the scenes video put together but with Seiko music! And yet, and yet, this was times and times more gayer than all their PVs combined! How many times did they kiss? I don’t even…

Just a Reminder…

~

…that a perfect MV already is out there!

Having watched my favorite movie, and having read my favorite book, I couldn’t help but think of my favorite MV too! And strangely, when I re-watched them, they seemed strange to me as if I did not watch them endlessly when they first came into my life! Good thing because I feel a strange new love for it now, especially after seeing that the two parts remind of me The Handmaiden, in that they compliment each other with one filling in the blanks of the other.

I love this MV, these vids and the song!

Abandoned“, “The Footsteps of my dear Love” and “All I Want” are among my top five songs ever! I could listen to them none stop on a loop!

Night!

HaruMaria VS Haruna2

Alright, that’s it! I am convinced that there are spies who frequent here from H!P and AKS! There is no other explanation why things that I speculate on happen from time to time like this! I fail to believe it is a coincidence! Those are too many an occurrence for them to be that and if they were, then why am I not out on the streets making money with my awesome psychic powers!?

And so I have to choose to believe that there are spies among you dear Readers! Okay, who is it? Come now, I am going to bite you! Confess this instant! It will make you feel much better believe me!

Keh, just kidding! Keep up the good work out there, okay!

So, like I said in my last Hello Project post, Team Tsunku has managed to win me over! To those who do not know, believe it or not I was into Hello Project before I was AKB, even though by the time I got into Idols AKB was already on the scene too. At the time I knew nothing at all and it took me a long while to find out that my chosen H!P had already graduated!!! That girl was Mikitty, Fujimoto Miki. And so when my heart sunk after that very first Idol heart-break, I veered away from H!P, even though I had already been drown to the other groups with Yukirin threatening to dethrone Mikitty as my Koshii (Kami Oshii)! It was during this period when Mikitty’s absence hit me hard, that I discovered AKB!

Since then it was a challenge getting back into H!P and with more girls leaving that I was used to, well, things did not get any better! It wasn’t until the 9th Gen came onto the scene that my interest in that area kind of sparked a new life within me, and then not until Ikubo Haruna appeared and made me ship her with Michishige, in addition with these new groups forming around them that were bringing interesting new girls that I started to secretly keep an eye out for H!P happenings!

But even then I was not fully back in yet! Until now! It could have actually been earlier but MeiMei’s graduation pushed that back a bit! With the power of yuri though, in my H!P top ship in HaruMaria (Iikubo Harina and Makino Maria), add in my growing interesting in other groups and ships and well, resistance is futile! Haruna2 (Iikubo Haruna and Ogata Haruna), AyaRei (Hamaura Ayano and Inoue Rei) of Kobushi Factory, MaiSaki (Ozeki Mai and Morito Chisaki) of Country Girls, TomoYuki (Kanazawa Tomoko and Takagi Sayuki) of Juice=Juice and Kisao (Niinuma Kisora and Akiyama Mao) of Tsubaki Factory, have proven to be quite the irresistible attractions!

So, what of this spy business, well, I was mentioning some time back how HaruMaria seemed to be losing fervour because it seemed like Haruna2 were being pushed, in that Ogata seemed to becoming the new partner for Iikubo but then the PVs for their new single hit and what do those awesome guys go and do? Not only do they still LET THEM FIGHT, but they also let Maria win, totally putting me in a completely win-win situation! I was getting kind of sad seeing that they seemed to be dropping my Top Ship but then at the same time I was totally falling in love with Haruna2. So, you see my position, and when they went and not only did they give me both HaruMaria but also Haruna2, make HaruMaria the dominant ship once more, after making them fight, well, let’s just say someone is very happy to be alive!

Now to be fair it is not just the yuri that hooked me back into H!P. They are doing something now that made AKB famous but totally seem to have forgotten about in their blindness due to all the cask around them and that is the importance of the lyrics of their songs!

Like, have you dear Readers listened to their latest songs? And this applies to all groups! You should totally follow them on Youtube. They always release the promotional versions of their songs even before release day in full and with English subtitles! Seriously, H!P is going to be at the top soon once again if they keep this new strategy up! And the quality of their PVs, Jesus! Only the 46 Family on Team Yasusu even dreams of touching the quality of H!P’s PVs! And don’t get me started on their LIVEs, especially the those awesome, awesome Hello Project Seasonal Festivals! The first time I watched one, which was the Winter 2015 one, I almost cried out in disbelief! LIVEs were so supposed to be the Team Yasusu’s Holy Grail but the only one worth anything recently has been the Kojimatsuri and that is obviously a one-time thing!

But I am getting distracted once again. Back to the lyrics, all of their songs are so relevant it surprises me how Tsunku can come up with so many topics relevant to the world at the moment for each group! That’s two or three songs for each single from each group! And they are all quality songs! For example, in the current singles releasing/soon to be released, Morning Musume 17 are all about the jealous between girls in their song ‘Jealousy Jealousy’, which I am surprised no one has written a song about yet, otherwise there would be outcry of copypasta, amirite?! Meanwhile Tsubaki Factory are also talking about the state of the internet right in their song ‘Just Try’, which is about rumour-mongering and spreading the hate because people prefer to discuss bad news instead of the good. And these are only from the latest of the releases!

And it is evident that people are beginning to notice so if H!P keeps this up, they are going to pull a Ryzen in this Idol world and now that they are back, the prospect of my Goddess graduating (with her waifu) doesn’t seem to doom-like to my Idol life! It will surely take me a few months to get back but at least I have somewhere to get back to now! So, great work Hello!Project!

Alright, enough talk, time to get to the REAL meaning behind the Jealousy Jealousy song. While everyone else is focusing on the lyrics, taking them at face value, there is me on the other hand, me, who was actually the target for this song! All I saw in the Jealousy Jealousy PV was the fight going on between Maria and Haruna(O).
