That third season though…

If you are a fellow Saotome Mary lover then you know what a feast this season was! You see TWIN, the third season, focuses on Mary and Mary alone, she is the protagonist in this and it takes place when she first arrives at Hyakkaou Academy. That happened a year before Jabami Yumeko arrived! In fact this is like a story being told to Yumeko by the Journalism Club President, even though it actually starts out as a story by the Supernatural Club President Togashuki Yukimi but that threads dies real quick I guess because she becomes one of the main characters alongside Mary and her BFF Hanatemari Tsuzura.

In the grand scheme of things, the only relevant thing is that the Student Council still has friction within as some members are staging a coupe and try to initiate Mary into their cause because she comes and takes the school by storm, which grabs the attention of the Student Council, in all manors of ways!

We saw a glimpse of this in the first, or was it second season, when the twin sister of the Student Council President (Momobami Kirari) Momobami Ririka seems adamant about getting Mary to join the Council! Sadly we did not get to see Mary interact with Ririka here and I hope that it is because there is more story to be told but even if they did not meet, or even Mary meeting Kirari, she did meet other Council Members!

Like I said, some members were planning to take down Kirari and tried to recruit Mary into their group and these were the Leader and his fellow member and Fiancee Miharutaki Sakura (Played by Ikuta Erika)! Mary of course did not join them in their cause mostly because the Leader was shady as hell and treated Ladies with disrespect!

Yeah, Mary here was the opposite of the Mary we meet in the first season! This Mary had her heart in the right place and she even gets into gambling to save her friend Tsuzura from the cute bully of the first years Aiura Kokoro (played by Fukumoto Riko). Seriously, that was such a great way to open a series, if I ever saw one! The series’ end does not catch us up to the Mary we first met though, which will make things amiss if there is not more story to perfectly fit in-between this and the start when Yumeko arrives!

Back to the Student Council, the other members Mary gets to meet is one of the Craziest ones – Juraku Sachiko (played by Nagai Mijika)! I bet you she is like the President of the Justice Committee or something! She is totally scary! And totally gay!

That’s right, Sachiko-sama here is the Lady of the series and while apparently she is supposedly the main Antagonist of the manga version, she only popped in and out in the series even though she definitely had the most screentime but as far as I am concerned the Resistance group is the main antagonists!

I mean in this series we settle things with Gambling and Mary did not Gamble with Sachiko-sama, hell, Sachiko-sama wanted Mary for herself and that barely makes for a great antagonist.

Okay, now I need to read that manga!

Speaking of Sachiko-sama, she does have a slave literally on chains in Sado Mikura (Sado…hehehe) played by Hinatazaka46’s Sasaki Mirei. She of course wants to be the sole receiver of Sachiko-sama’s affection…uh…attention, so when Sachiko-sama shows interest in Mary, you know there is going to be animosity between the two, and of course there is!

And while Mary did not get to meet the Momobami twins, she did get one of their attention! I am not sure if it was Ririka standing in for Kirari or if it was actually Kirari herself but when Tsuzura and Yukimi stumble into the Council Room looking for clues to the Gambling game that Mary is currently attending, they run into Kirari, well, she was actually there but they did not see her until she called out to them when they were leaving! She asks if they are friends of Mary and notes how they seem to be having fun! She sounded almost…

Yeah, let’s not go there, next thing I know I will be day dreaming about Mary and Kirari and…Ah shit…it’s too late now!

Some old cast are here too even if they only are glimpsed at. That includes some of the other Student Council Members, like that craziest of the crazy, one-eyed Midari, even though here she still has two eyes but her mind is already gone! She’s got herself a team of girls and yeah, they are totally with benefits!

Anyway, I really love this series! It’s such a shame that Hamabe Minami-chan had to play both Yumeko and Saki because I really want another season of SAKI as well! Japan is really great at adapting Manga to series and SAKI and KAGEGURUI are the best of the best!

Anyway, I totally ship Mary with literally anyone in this series!

[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…

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.

Nogizaka 46 12th Single – Taiyou Knock PV

Yes! Ikoma46 is back! After what seems like forever Ikoma-kun is back as the Centre of Nogizaka46! This of course might not be a big deal seeing as thankfully, she is still the Face of Nogizaka, I kind of missed her at hat front and Centre. I love, and in fact have purchased, all of the singles centred by Ikoma-kun, with ‘Kimi no nawa Kibou’ being my favourite A-side and ‘SHAKISM’ being my favourite PV! But let’s be honest here, all of Nogizaka’s singles have been great either because of the couplings or the A-sides.

But just as we got Ikoma-kun back, so did the PVs return to their 5min runtime! Like, why?! I was looking forward to the dramatic first PV that is most certain to have some Rinanase! We got our Rinanase of course but so did we lose the extra time to enjoy it in the PV when they returned to the 5min curve! Why would you do this?! I was really looking forward to that Rinanase!

Why is this? Well, if you follow Nogizaka then you know of how much Ikoma-kun loves Nanase, am I right? And with Kazumi’s coming out on her love for Noujou, and Minami having this friendy thing going on with Hocchan, there is nothing stopping the Rinanase now, is there? And Nogizaka being its awesome self, delivered just as I expected! The focus was on the top girls which in this case it means Ikoma-kun, Nanase, Iku-chan and the usual trip (Cap, Shiraishi and Hashimoto). Of course Ikoma-kun was the focus!

But I was kind of disappointed to tell the truth. I felt like the PV’s plot had been done before. Wasn’t this the same formula they used in Nanase’s first single? Sure there was another twist in that one but it was essentially about the same thing in regards to the main character and the rest of the group! Except last time we had close to 10min of runtime and we got the full picture but this time it was half of that which meant lots of gaps in the story and that we will most likely never truly understand what the hell was going on beyond the surface.
