[Pics] NGZ46 Holy Trinity & Ikominami

 utb031-18 utb023-11

God bless you UTB, God bless you!

Nott only did you give me something I have been craving for a while now in The original Three but you went a whole mile farther and gave me my Nogizaka Top Ship in Ikominami! Or is it that Ikominami gave us them!? Ahhh either way, what an awesome present this is?!

I wonder if this is a sign for the next single going back in formation? If it is not Reika or Kazumin for next Center, then my money is on Ikoma-kun, flanked by her right-hand man and waifu. Or maybe it will be a Minami center? Nah, there hasn’t been any signs in the front and you can usually tell who is going to be. Under Construction is a very spoilerly place actually if you pay attention.

Anyway, I am so happy this early in the year and unlike 2015, there is just nothing I can think of that will happen on the other side (bad karma) to negate my happies! That was the lowest blow I ever got dealt and I survived it so anything else is just cake walk!

What an issue though, this UTB volume! In addition to the Holy Trinity, I got my NGT48 Oshi (That’s Honma Hinata to those who did not know) and my Family 46 Kami Ikoma-kun appeared again, in another trio with none other than Nanasemaru and Kazumin! Talk about having your waifu in one basket! Yes, I am a huge shipper of Ikoma-kun and Nanasemaru! And so do I ship Nanase and Kazumin, especially after these recent episodes where they are just so pushed together. Who am I to resist?

If Girl Tears are my Kryptonite, Yuri is my Yellow Sun! It give me life, while Girl tears take it away!

In addition to those, the back cover was of none other than my Idol Goddess Yukir-I mean Black-sama, in her deadliest appearance yet for Lost in the Supermarket! Seriously, what a way to kick off the year!

Anyway, jump over for a few more scans…

i fear nothing

Holy! What an episode! Talk about fan-service! All them ships sitting together and being given focus continuously! Waka-sama and Minami-chan teleporting right next to their respective lovers when you least expect things to get even better! The silent battle between Minami-chan and Miona!


Okay, so maybe this was more fan-servicing if you were me who likes Ikoma-kun and ships her Minami-chan(Alpha) and Miona (Beta) and also if you ship the others like Waka-sama/Reika, Kazumin/Nanase, Marika/Sayuri because if you are, this is one Christmas present we got right here!

Jeez, talk about going straight for the jugular! There I was, already flipping out on finally having Ikoma-kun and Miona in the same frame sitting right next to one another in…so long I don’t even remember if they ever sat together before, which as you can imagine, it is a big deal! But then we get Kazumin right next to Nanase, and since this takes place right after their ship won the last episode’s couple battle, emotions are still high in regards to them!

Then seemingly out of no where Waka-sama shows up, and lo and behold, she is right next to waifu Reika and I am ready for this party to get going! While I am enjoying seeing Ikoma-kun and Miona chilling right next to one another, trying to not salivate from the corner of my mouth at how delicious they look together (it really has been forever since I saw them so close), and after I almost get a heart attach from Ikoma-kun’s cool pause for the camera that had me fall in love with her even more…

Out of nowhere, even as I almost gave up on that happening, we close in on Ikoma-kun but not with her and Miona as I had anticipated but all three!!! With MINAMI-CHAN?!!! I was like…

cant breathe

In addition, nothing close of wanting to find out who the camera men are on this show and give me each a Christmas present in return for their great work on this episode, we did not end up having just a three-shot until the end of the episode! Nope, it was as before! They would alternate between Ikomiona, Ikominami and them Ikominamiona! I was literally flipping out watching this episode!

I am telling you dear Readers, I am feeling a Ikoma-kun single upon us! I mean we are in need of a cool single right about now and she always gets the cool ones! Though it is nigh impossible, if it does happen and she ends up being flanked by Minami-chan and Miona…well, let’s just leave it at that.

I know it wasn’t intentional, there are scarcely any fans of the three together but the Force works in mysterious ways and I believe it was with us this time. One of the best presents for Christmas ever dearest Nogizaka. Thank you, thank you very much! You have no idea how happy you have made me with this simple a thing!

Minami-chan holding onto Ikoma-kun’s hand in the darkness, Miona leaning on Ikoma-kun’s shoulder using Kazumin’s spotlight as an excuse, Kazumin crying after her crush Nojo nails the rapping performance, Ikominamiona in the same frame sitting right next to one another!!!! Like How did this probability even get to happen?! Nothing but the Force can explain this!

That’s it, I will not doubt anymore! There is someone out there that is listening and as such, I am re-affirming my wish to have a Ikominamiona single down the road!

I believe!

[Nogibingo] Minami-chan’s Confession!

There is a God and s|he’s awesome!

That’s right Ladies and Gentlemen, this actually happened!

But before we go ahead and talk about this moment in history, I just wanted to say that yes, I am still alive and kicking! Just actually had my Grad this weekend (YAS! No more studies…I hope!) and before that I was on holiday so most of my action was a re-tweet and a reblog here and there. If anyone was worried, do not be.

And so there I am trying to catch up on what I have been missing and you won’t believe it! As I was watching the 16th Single and saw Ikoma-kun and Minami-chan next to one another (albeit on the 3rd row), memories began to pour out of me – Memories of those first five singles when Minami-chan was always on the left of Ikoma-centre and was wishing and wondering when we will ever get another single of the three at the front (Iku-chan –> Ikoma-kun <- Minami-chan).

I was just thinking of that when that Nogibingo episode ended and Nogiroom started and then BAM! Minami-chan goes and drops the bomb! And not just dropping it, she talked about exactly what I was reminiscing about! Like, how awesome is that?! And all this with a dose of Hime-tan’s love letter to Ikoma-chan, also touching upon the subject of Ikoma-kun’s position!

Like, I knew that as soon as I finish this episode, I am so writing about it. Like, is there even any better way to get back to active duty here? Maybe, but I chose you IkoMina!

Nogibingo is at it again – Taking the best of AKBINGO and making it even better! I feel like the 46G is the place to be right now. Keiyakizaka’s girls are so much fun (Ozeki, Neru, Fairy-chan, Shiida and Rika being the personal favs), as for their Senpais, really, what needs to be said?!

Only thing that stopped this episode from that top 10 star is the lack of Ikoma-kun but even then, it scored a 9.7 from me so all is good.

I just love it when Nogibingo, the show you would think would just copy-pasta Nogibingo, takes only the best, when it is borrowing, and putting an awesome spin on it. When we were showed the shopping center I thought they would do the date thing Akbingo did but nope. It was so basic, just taking purikura photos, but it was oh so satisfactory. Time just flew by and I found myself wanting more. Too bad there is no part 2. Oh well, best things come in small packages.

For me this time around, my favorite was actually the winners – That is the Misao-kun/Minami pair. Minami-chan was just so on fire! I guess she is right at the middle of that time in life, you know it all too well.

Dear Nogizaka, why are you so perfect?! How can you be so good to us fans all the time?! Be it yuri you deliver. Be it Danso you deliver. Be it good music, you always deliver and you always do it so well! Like, how can anyone ask for something more after this great episode that I like to think of as my Christmas present?!  Seriously, with this I am so done with 2014! I am satisfied. Nothing can happen from now until Jan 2nd and I would still be satisfied! DAT Ikoma and Chiharu danso, that intense segment by Nanase, my dream of the comedians as a ship being delivered in the best package possible, that is Kazumin and Noujou…

Butler Ikoma VS Maid Hori – FIGHT!

Ikoma x Hoshino x Hocchan?…

So, as every year’s norm, this year too we get a Halloween episode from Nogizaka where they cosplay for my favourite holiday. This time they even kick things up into high gear by pairing the girls up and you know what that means dear Readers – Ships incoming! And so the couple start pouring out including some fan-canon ones like Yumi/Reika and MaMai/MisaMisa. Just as I am wondering who Ikoma-kun is gonna be paired up with, and I just know she is going to do Danso because no one loves Danso like she does, hoping that it could me Minami-chan or Miona and I have to do thins until the very last couple(?) because she came up the last.

And do you know what those guys decided to do? They went and broke the rules by placing Ikoma-kun in a triangle with none other than the mentioned choices I had for her! You can imagine my heart’s condition when I first saw that logo with the three of them together. I just knew I was in for a world of sweet pain. But I thought I was ready! I mean surely they can’t do something like making Ikoma a guy with Minami-chan or Hocchan as a girl and the three in a triangle, surely..Well, I was wrong…

AKB48グループ 春コン in さいたまスーパーアリーナ~思い出は全部ここに捨てていけ!~Disc2 HKT48単独公演.mkv - 00000

Hello dear Readers,I sure hope that you had a good day yesterday because I sure did! Or maybe I should say night? After all I watched all these vids last night and that other thing happened at night of course and as to which thing I am talking about dreams!

I am happy to say that I have finally had a dream about one of my 4 kamis. The first dream goes to our Imoutochan Sakuratan! It’s so vague and I almost forgot about it right when I woke up (Having had a second completely non-related dream which I remembered as I woke up) but then ten minutes later as I laze in bed, I remember it!

It wasn’t anything major (as like my other Idol dreams than can be counted on the fingers). It was situated in a Computer Room at College the whole sequence for some reason. I remember Sakura-tan asking me to help her photocopy some papers that for some reason I think belonged to me. A great feeling I tell ya all! Other than that though, I can’t remember much. But really, who cares, I dreamed about her and that is in and of itself WIN!

But that dream was the end of the day/night. What started the night off was none other than my Absolute Kami among Kamis appearing in the latest episode of Utage! For some reason the fact that Mayuki was present took the far back seat to the awesome triple besties that is Sasshi/Miichan/Yukirin! I can’t speak for you all but whenever these three are together I get this awesome feeling inside and can’t stop grinning like a mad person! Seriously, what is it about these three?!

Not only that but they performed together a Morning Musume sub-unit song (Choco to LOVE by PuchiMoni) and of course they had great fun performing it! Their friendship is just too delicious for reasons un-known to me! I am still baffled by how close Yukirin and Miichan are. I mean with Sashiko I understand but Miichan? We all know Yukirin and her Senpai thing so to see her and Miichan be that close pleases me to no end!

Then as the theme was about memories, they were also showing the guests’ photos from years ago and for some reason I was impressed with the choice of the photo they chose for Yukirin. I am not sure if the guests chose the photos themselves but if they did then Yukirin means serious business!

What am I going on about? Well, look at Sashiko and Miichan’s photos. They scream ‘fun’ which compliments the mood the three were in during the shooting but then there was Yukirin’s photo and I was like – ‘WHY SO SERIOUS?!’ At first! I mean she has lots of fun pics of herself young , we have seen them. But then I remembered TegeTege just a day ago, about Sousenkyou, then my face split apart!

My Goddess, she is such a an intelligent Black Angel, isn’t she! All that photo told me was that – Look, I can do serious when the occasion calls for it! I am no stranger to leadership. Give me a chance and I will show you a serious Kashiwagi AKB! I haz the experience. Here is proof!

It probably isn’t that at all but with her you can never tell what is what which is the greatest attraction of hers. With Yukirin you never know what you are getting! I have said it countless times and I will say it again – I am forever lucky to have her as my Kami o Kami Oshi! She has layers so deep it makes my head hurt trying to figure out why anyone would call her boring!

Next Sousenkyou is gonna be historic!

BTW, it turns out that not just Yukirin but also Miichan auditioned for Morning Musume and she too failed! Oh tsunku, how many regrets do you have?! And by the way Sashiko was and is such a great fan of H!P just like the other two, no wonder these two are such great friends with such an important thing in common.

And finally, the Nogizakatte Doko episode that just forced me down memory lane to almost two years ago! Well, a couple of episodes back, there was this segment where the members had to challenge themselves to something for a month to be evaluated a month later on the show. Two episodes now have gone by about this. The last episode my other favourite Hocchan challenged herself to cramming all the names of the villains in 80-something horror movies. Sadly she failed right at the last film. She was defeated by the Scream Series’ Ghost Face!

This time though was another of Ikoma-kun’s waifu (Waifu No.1 in fact!) Minami-chwan! Her challenge to me has been the most impressive and beneficial to the challenger! What was it about? Well, something I certainly wouldn’t do even if paid money to do it!


I mate numbers! Any way, her challenge was a speed calculation where a sequence of random numbers is displayed on a screen in intervals of a second or else and she has to say their sum doing calculations only in her mind! Yeah, like you can’t find me doing that! I would fail at just two double digit numbers!

But not our cutie, nope! That girl chewed those numbers so hard then spat them out like she was a completely different person! We all know Minami-chan and how lazy she is. In fact she said it herself that she hates studying as well but she worked so hard and managed to complete the test with much praise-worthy success!

Ikoma-kun Husbando-kun couldn’t contain herself anymore! I mean how could she,  I couldn’t and I am just an observer! For some reason I actually expected the hug even before it actually happened! And Husbando-kun in all her High school Baseball Boy glory made the two look like just a normal young couple!

Queue the SHAKISM flashbacks and Muse-san being stirred!

Yeah, I woke up this morning in a really great mood, to say the least! But before I leave you all I want to know one thing…
