Team NIII – Kokoro ni Taiyou

Yes, yes, I know it is late, waaay late but these caps have been in my Pictures folder (the queue for posts) for so long that I just had to get rid of them, now that I am thinking of reinstalling Windows to freshen up my PC, and I don’t feel like deleting, resizing and then recopying all over again.

So here we go. I love these MVs a lot! First of all they are so different from one another, from the songs to the stories to the themes of the videos! While Team G have a really moody song with an equally heavy story and a dark themed MV to match, Team NIII’s on the other hand is so happy go lucky, everyone is having a great time and the MV is as bright as they come! It’s almost a comedy compared to the angst of Team G’s one!

And thus it is a bit hard to decide which I love more! Personally I am more into the darkside and thus love heavy stuff! But on the other hand Team NIII has the trap card – Yukirin! But on the flipside Team G has the yuri!

Decisions, decisions!

What’s worse is that lately I have gone back to Ogiyuka (Ogino Yuka) as my NGT48 Oshii. To those who missed it, at first, she was my Oshii, then I switched to Hinatan (Honma Hinata) and now I am back to Ogiyuka! So, while Team G has the yuri and the tone I love, Team NIII has My Kami in addition to my NGT Oshii, and I have been falling in love with Katomina more than usual too! So as you see I can’t decide here which Team’s MV I like best!

Not only about the members but the Team NIII MV is so much fun that it is enough to take on the yuri in the G MV. But there is also the fact that most of the yuri is unrequited! Hell, even the centers Hinatan and Rika wasn’t as straight a romance. It was apparent from Rika’s side that she liked Hinatan. Even to the present time when they meet in the streets years since their school days, there is still something there but just like those years ago, Hinatan is still afraid and in denial but Rika has accepted the reality of things.

Back in the past, there is a moment where Rika leaves, after a bout of jealousy and we see that Hinata’s eyes follows her, telling us that she knows what is happening but either she really did not feel the same way about Rika or she did but was to afraid.

Meanwhile we have a canon ship going on with Ayutaro (Nakamura Ayuna) and Tsugumin (Oguma Tsugumi). I call it canon because in both the present and the past they were legit and the others it seemed knew of their relationship as they didn’t seem to have a problem with their intimacy! This, this ship is why I am actually writing about this MV in the first place! Seriously, those have moments similar to =LOVE’s Teokure CAUTION and the only thing missing was the kiss! Kind of too much to expect but hey, 6 years ago Kanon was like 13, when she kissed a 16 year old Kuumin (SKE48’s Kataomoi FINALLY single)

God, has it really been 6 years since then?! And yet not another 48G MV has managed to get close to that level of GAYNESS! Does anyone know where to purchase a time-machine please?

Meanwhile on the other side, Katomina makes you break ribs with her antics that totally reminded me of Takamina! She was like someone possessed by the 1st Soukantoku! Seriously, she was like her to the T! I totally see why she was chosen as the next Captain of the whole NGT48 (and Team NIII).

Also of course there was some good moments between her and Yukirin, in both the dance parts and the other parts of the MV. Like when she jumped into Yukirin’s solo takes, or when Yukirin had her hands on Katomina’s butt trying to straighten her posture with the help of Ogiyuka and Gatanee.

And the girls were all so lovely! It is the sexy MV, which is where the comedy came from as we know Takamina did not do sexy at all and here Katomina was channelling the perfect takamina (I love how their names rhyme by the way)!

Yeah, Team G also did sexy, in the present timeline where they are grown-up but I only found Ayutaro and Mihachan (Nara Miharu) to fit the bill good enough. Speaking of Mihachan, is she turning into a looker or is it just me?

Anyway, that is all I have to say about this 2 months old single. The A side this time around wasn’t that grand, well when compared to the others. And I am still awaiting a true A side yuri MV! Skip for all the caps…

[AKB48] Still Dreaming

I know Sakura-tan, I know!

It’s the only explanation because I still can’t get over the fact that there is an MV out there with this much Yukirin. That there is a single line-up out there that has her spot on centre a few times at the front!

Not even the Kayousai LIVE performance made me get these facts through my thick skull! That just goes to show you how starved we Yukirin fans have been all these years! Well, again like I said, better late than never! We never got a MAYUKI single but I am choosing to believe that AKS so the error of their ways and are looking to avoid repeating that same mistake with Yukirin!

As for the performance, just as I suspected it was not performed in full! Then again the three centers were missing so I guess I forgive them? Speaking of the missing centers (Sakura-tan, Hiichan and Nako), they were replaced by apparently the top three dancers (in what?) in STU48’s Kadowaki Miyuna taking over for Nako, Team 8’s Hijiri taking over for Hitomi and STU48’s Mitsuki for Sakura! Kinda surprised at these replacements. I really need to see those auditions!

Not that I care but I was under the impression that Kanon was considered the best dancer in STU48 and don’t get me started on Team 8! Miyuna is my STU oshii but really? Maybe just a few girls auditioned?! Again, i don’t care and really, these three fit in right fine in the senbatsu!

I of course miss Sakura-tan and I wanted to see my CBS but I don’t know if it was a blessing or what because the relevant parts were not performed so  I guess not much was missed! And they did include a BTS of the filming of the MV so I got my dose of CBS then!

Also, also, I had YuiYuki to keep me company and I tell you all now, this ship is really growing on me! Those two had almost the same hair-do in this performance and you would be hard pressed to not think them of as sisters were you to see them on the street waking together looking like this! Is it just me or does YuiYui look like the old Yukirin with her high ponytail?

So cute >.<

For some odd reason I noticed them a lot more here. Maybe it’s because Sakura-tan is missing so I can concentrate on YuiYui more or because my love for the ship is growing out of control or the cameramen just can’t resist like I do, either way I love it and them even more than I did a few days back!

Also, also, those mad men just went and did it! They gave me an Easter Egg! Like, I never even imagined that I would ever see an Easter Egg in a Music Video of all places! But those absolute madmen did it when they pulled moment from Teacher Teacher, albeit mirrored, and dropped it right smack middle in No WAN MAN! What am I talking about? This of course…

I stan!

Speaking of noticing things, can you believe that I did not notice Sashiko in the MV at all! Like, I was surprised to see her on the covers because I did not think she was in the MV! And yet here she is! Was she in the MV? I guess I have to watch it again to make sure! Seriously, I don’t remember seeing her at all!

The song is still growing on me but the dance has got me hooked! I just pray that inevitably they do a full version! Today too though we have to take away the good fact that it was not cut to pieces! It’s one of the things I can’t stand on Korea’s Music Shows! The editing gives brain damage! Here though the camera lingered and let you sock in the dance moves to your fill and when Yukirin was on screen in her uncut glory, I was in heaven!

Seriously, credit where credit is due! Took you long enough but thank you AKS, thank you for giving Yukirin her just desserts! And you know, now I kind of understand why they never gave her the light of day because when she is centre, she literally and figuratively shadows some of if not most of the other girls! Just look at her in that middle spread, she is so powerful >.<

Still can’t believe this is happening!

[AKB48G] Appreciating UZA

akb
Lance-Reddick-Goddamn-right

Well, other’s are, because I have been appreciating UZA since it was released way back in 2012 (which feels like ages ago)!

Just today a fan in Japan posted this as he praised the senbatsu that was UZA! While I love the single and the post was originally about how godly the senbatsu was and UZA is still to this day my favourite single from the whole 48/46 Groups, You damn well know why I chose to make a post about it now!

It always puts a smile on my face when I see people recognizing Yukirin’s first biggest feat! It actually isn’t the real first biggest – that was her becoming the first ever Handshake Queen, which in turn enabled her to pull off that legendary feat – breaking into the feared Kami 7 and thus earning her the name- God Killer! She slayed so hard they had to turn the name from Kami 7 to Kami 8, which essentially means that since then the Kami 7 was dead, so was its legendary status! Sure the girls still use the term these days but its glamour is long gone!

In case you did not know…I worship only one Idol! Welcome to Yukirin World!

Anyway, that’s that. Some pics to take us back to the old times after the jump…

I’m sorry, I can’t

I feel your pain Yukirin, I feel your pain…

Yes, I am back at this craziness but really, those who know me shouldn’t be surprised! Every time I dig a new Yukirin ship, I always see potential as long as the two are in ‘spitting distance’! You all know I ship me some Yukirin/Yuihan. we o way back to the Eien Pressure MV days! Which was kind of rare seeing as most were into Paruru/Yuihan or Sayanee/Yuihan and we all know of Yukirin’s side of the story! But like I have said so many times, almost everyone is shippable with Yuikirin as far as  I am concerned! Don’t believe me? Just see the Fan Fiction List on the ride hand side!

So this means only one thing, that the new ship has to do with the other Yui – YuiYui – Oguri Yui! This is not the first post about these two obviously. I have already discussed them and mentioned my interest in the ship with the Teacher Teacher single post! Speaking of which, I am still dying for the Making of of that PV! If some can find the photoshoot for the covers with their magic, I will do anything for a copy!

Anyway, the bottom line is that I have been down for some YuYuYu (Yuki x YuiYui) content and then YouTube came through with these videos of the girls promoting this new game that I am sure I will never play! In addition to these three there was Miion, KatoRena, Rin (Okabe) and Narumi (8). And if you were wondering, yes, Miion wanted a part of that beef and KatoRena looked like she was already missing Team B!

Anyway, this is not me moving on so soon after…We all know no one will ever replace her in Yukirin’s life but this is me, I have been shipping others with Yukirin even when ‘she’ was still around! Again, read them fics –>

And so I am putting it out there that I am dying for some YuYuYu content and if you all have come across some that I have not, please do share! I sure hope AKS do continue pairing these up in somethings to come! I mean, it looks like she is being made out to be the new AKB face but she is still green so they need that powerhouse to give a little pushing hand!

Now, if only they used their brains and gave us a single centred by these two! Eh, I know I am wishing on a fallen star, I mean, this is the same company that had MAYUKI for 11 years and never gave them a single! Like, talk about worst management ever! But we are all tired of singing that song, especially now that it shall never ever be heard so let’s move on…

[GAY48] Combo Breaker!

DkzYE3KU0AA9TRB

@yappari_teamb just posted this on Twitter, obviously for Mayuki, showcasing how they have been holding hands since 2007, and through my woes of missing the bestest ship ever in the history of the Idol world, I spied what was behind them…

WMatsui!!!

Like, talk about a combo breaker! Seriously, if on their left had been either Kojiyuu or Atsumina, I would have had this cap touched up, printed in poster format, framed, and then put up on the wall in my living room about the chimney!

God!

And yes, I am aware that I haven’t yet touched upon Mayuyu’s graduation but my heart is just not ready yet for that! Add in the pain of my other Oshii leaving (Ikoma-kun and Maachun) and really, it is all just too much to have gotten over yet!

But it will be coming…
