That’s right you all! Nanase takes the crown for the second time in a row and this has got to be the shortest period between singles so far I’ve seen! Other than that though, this was so very boring!
So, this week on AKB48 Show ep19, apart from Takamina appearing on her segment, where she was actually a guest this time, the show was dominated by Nogizaka46. Indeed just like Cap said to Ikoma-kun in the opening sequence, it totally was the Nogizaka46 Show.
Sadly we only got that segment with Iku-chan, Hashimoto and Mai and the one with Takamina. The rest was song time. Actually maybe I shouldn’t be sad since they performed two of my Top 3 Nogizaka46 songs – Kimi no nawa kibou and Seifuku no mannequin.
To make things ever that much better, Kimi no nawa kibou, my favourite Nogizaka46 song, they did the LIVE version I love so much with Iku-chan on the piano! Man that song gives me eargasms every time I hear it especially LIVE. They really need to release this acoustic version of this song on the album (when it gets released) because it’s just too good to not be professionally recorded for infinity pleasure of listening!
Really great choice choosing Seifuku no mannequin as the other song too. I love that song and how it shows off the other side of the girls. Well, almost all songs so far have shown different sides of the girls but since I am a cool-factor freak, well, SnM takes the cake. And this is personal but seeing Minami-chan again really puts a huge smile on my face. I miss her in senbatsu.
I would have preferred if they did Baretta or Tsuki no Ookisa instead of Sonna baka na but then again, those two songs are also cool and we already have SnM so I understand why they chose to go with this fun song instead. Yeah, the show was awesome on the music side of things.
On the show side of things, Takamina and Sakurai of course talked about the leadership thing and Takamina asked about what we are all curious about, the Centre switcharoos they are doing now for every other single. And of course she asks about how Ikoma must feel about that but she also sees the change in her from when she was the Centre to now.
I too can see it, the change I mean. She is more fun now than when she was the Centre. Of course Ikoma is still the Face of Nogizaka even if she is no longer the Centre. I wonder how long will we have to wait until she centres another single. Yeah, can’t help but come to the conclusion that she is still the best choice for Centre. Oh well, who knows, maybe there will be someone who will be fit for the role more than her. Not in the current members though. Maybe in the 3rd Gen? Usually things get complicated around the 3rd Gen entry. On the other hand, this means we might yet get to see a Iku-chan centre as well (she was looking smashin in that suit, huh?) ^^ or maybe a Minami Centre, you never know (when she completes her diet mission).
Any who, I hope there is another Nogizaka Show episode coming our way. I want more awesome Nogizaka songs.
Nogizaka is taking no prisoners people for they are putting on even more pressure but upping the awesomeness of their TV shows! This week’s Nogizakatte Doko takes all kinds of serious cake with its theme alone!
That’s right, Valentine’s is just right around the corner so what better way than to make an episode of gift exchanging? No no, don’t cry yet as you remember back to last year’s episode. Nope, this time it’s totally different and all kinds of awesome. Not only are the girls exchanging gifts, but they are between each other, No Himura cock-blocking this time. Better yet, they have to accompany the exchanging with a confession. Like, is that GOLD or what?! I mean, I gotta confess but though I had an inkling of what might happen from last episode’s preview, I did not think they would actually go and do it but they so did! All hail Nogizaka!
And to make things all that much more awesome, we only got through 8 of the sixteen girls, meaning that the next episode is a continuation of this awesomeness! But unlike AKB that will make you wait for the best until the very last, Nogizaka balances things out pretty well by starting with just not anybody but Wakatsuki-sama herself!
Let the drama commence!
Said one Anee, Takayama Kazumi!
Yep, the Nogizaka girls are here to take over once again in the next instalment of NOGIBINGO! This time around, the girls are acting out a selected few fan’s fantasies and as we see above, some are just crazy. But the girls still do it any way because…The trio’s fantasy requester is obviously into some S&M shenanigans but not all are that twisted. Case in point…
…Write a fic about this!
Seriously, I was like, salivating and all that unpleasant other stuff when I first saw this! Does Nogizaka do sub units? Actually forget that, even if they don’t, Yasusu, make it happen! I command you!
I am telling you guys, my mind was going mad through all this magic arc! I was having delusions of a foursome for the very first time in my life! A 4P people! First I had scenarios of a Student council (a la Shakism of course) with these four running things. Obviously,
Dear Nogizaka, please
stap keep releasing cool PVs and awesome songs at the same damn time! If the PV was different from the song, it would be tolerable but for the song to be cool and the PV to match the coolness factor – that’s just overkill! I can hundle so much awesomeness before I break into hysteria due to happiness!
Nogizaka 46! just stole the end of the year for me hands down! I can’t think of how the 13th and 34th singles are gonna be able to beat this! They are obviously both gonna sell more than Baretta but they will not be as awesome as Baretta! SKE is already out from what I have seen of the preview. Yes, the elephants are awesome but that’s it! KFC already did the crowd thingie and the song…Well maybe Yasusu will pull out that rabbit he’s been storing in his hat for Jurina ever since she joined and we will have the single of the century now that she is centre finally but you know what they say – With great expectations…
With this single, the first topic to discuss is of course yuri.
I kid, it’s the new Centre – Hori Miona. I’m gonna talk these PVs using her as the focus.
