Better late than never AKB, better late than never!
I don’t even remember which year, it’s been that long, but I have wanted an official battle for Yukirin between the Kashiwagi Children and once again, 2020 delivered!
To those who are not familiar, you know how the Legends have fans within the groups? Well, Yukirin’s fan-club within is known as the Kashiwagi Children! The battle in these last final two episodes of this Nemousu’s season were about the battle for Yukirin where we find out who is the No.1 child!
To the surprise of no legendary fan Yuiri won, though I guess to the new ones they probably thought that Maho would win and I can see it, I too was rooting for her a bit but really, Yuiri is on a whole different level! That girl’s love for Yukirin is so strong she still can’t call her Yukirin-san like everyone else!
I’m very happy as you can imagine but I still feel that ‘late, late said the white rabbit’ nagging at me because this took place when some heavy hitting Children that would have given Yuiri a run for her money already graduated!
Like, can you imagine if Riorin (That’s Okawa Rio – ex Team 4 to you newbies) was in this and her and Yuiri going head to head!?! If there was a true No.1 before the official call, it was her!
And in addition, this took place at a bad time because there are Kashiwagi Children everywhere! NGT48 obviously, NMB48 and HKT48. I am not sure about SKE48 though. Then again, since Minarun is in SKE48, I guess we can count it too! So really, if the members could have gotten together, this would have been majorly interesting!
More interesting if it had happened earlier while some Children had not graduated, like the mentioned Riorin, Takahashi Kira, Sayaya (Kawamoto Saya) and many more!
And where was Hinana! Yeah sure, she started out as a Yuko fangirl (and probably still is) but damn, remember all those photos of her I posted back then? She is definitely higher up on the list than some of these members selected today!
