You know what you need to do!

Black-saaaaaaaan!

Oh how I’ve missed thee! Feels like a lifetime since we last got a Majisuka Gakuen series, let alone one with her! Heck, it feels almost as long with Centre too! Seriously, I about broke out in tears seeing them again! And they took a pic together!

God, even frikkin Nacchu is making me emotional!!

Actually, aren’t they like, the only two major characters left from the original Majisuka Series? That of course is Series 1 and 2 that I am talking about.

The feels…

Great, now I feel like writing another Majisuka fic! And why not, I have had this urge to do a crossover between Series 1/2 and Majimuri. Centering on Black and Lily of course. Center, Kaiser and Eins as supporting characters too.

Damn, I knew I had it bad for Majisuka Gakuen but I did not think it would be this bad! I mean, it’s been literally years and there is no more Gekikara…

*cries*

Speaking of which, who dares to wear Gekikara’s uniform! In the presence of Black to boot! I don’t care about the other characters, you can wear Maeda’s uniform, you can wear Sado’s uniform, you can wear Nezumi’s but Gekikara?!

That’s where I draw the line!

Speaking of, why didn’t YuiYui wear her Lily costume?! They should have a crossover with all the characters wearing their own but alas… This is AKS we are talking about here. Great decisions-making hasn’t been on the memo since 2012!

As for where these are from, the girls attended the #MUSICDAY event and I guess they performed either Majisuka Rock n Roll, Majijyo Teppen Blues or Yankee Soul, if they are adamant about keeping the original characters’ costumes.

While we are on the subject, I remembered that I have yet to write about Trouble in the Supermarket, the Majisuka Play centering on Black-san. When I get time for a re-watch, I will.

Anywho have a lovely Sat.

Sweet Baby Jesus!

I had almost forgotten how so frikkin gay SKE48’s 8th Single was…is!

Yes, I know it is a crime worth the death penalty, that I have not written a dedicated post about this MV after all this time! I mean I have written many an article about the single already but not the typical Music Video posts I usually do! So please, go ahead and punish me, I accept your wrath!

Almost 7 years…It’s almost 7 years since this single released for crying out loud! Jan 2012, Shall never forget that moment, nay, shall never forget the end of 2011! We got teasers of the single right around Christmas and if that was not the best ever Christmas present from AKS, I don’t know what presents are!

To this day, not a single from the 48 Family, 46 Family and that includes our sisters overseas, has come even close to the epicness and balls this 8th single from SaKaE 48 had! What is even more mind-blowing is that there was much more to this Music Video that was cut, from the sheer out-there-ness of it! More about this after the jump!

There have been Music Videos from other Idol groups and Artists that have come close but not any of the immediate family holds a candle to this single! And it is not just about the gayness, just like the songs of gens long gone, the song was powerful in it’s own right! These are a rarely these days! The possibility of getting one might even reduce me to tears, because that’s how rare they are!

Seriously though, it’s been so long that current fans would not even recognise most of the girls in this Music Video! Yes, that includes both the fans that were here back then and the new! For me though, SKE48 was the shit back then! At the time I think they were my favourite because of WMatsui as MAYUKI was pretty weak back then! So while I did not have them on my mind, as soon as I saw the girls’ faces, I instantly remembered, their names, their ship partners their teams and how gay they were!

This single was such a surprise, it made the controversy of AKB48’s 17th Single HEAVY ROTATION seem like kindergarteners crying over spilled milk! It not only boosted SKE48’s rep but the girls themselves got attention outside of WMatsui! Revisiting the MV, I am still shook that AKS manages to release this at all! Like, there is no way in hell they can release something remotely close to this nowadays! I mean like, this was after the backlash at Heavy Rotation but AKS was like, “Take this L and stick it up yours Fools!”

And don’t get me started on the quality of this MV! SKE48 Music Videos have always been miles ahead of AKB48’s when it came to quality but that is really not saying much! AKB MVs are easily the worst quality out of all the sisters!! But damn, this was 2012! Look at that production quality! Not just about the actual visual Q but also the themes, the camera-work, the editing…God!

But to be fair, I was too blinded by the GAY back then to care about quality! And really, AKB’s MVs at the time were pretty decent! I mean those were the days of BEGINNER (Epic), Flying Get (Miracle), Sakura no ki ni narou (Emotion)! Those were some of the best produced MVs from AKB48!

Ah the FEELs just thinking of those years…Things were perfect back then!

Anyway moving 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…

Vid – Mousou Deka [SKE48]

*Sorry All, Got Block WW on YT. I guess I know now why it wasn’t there before!

A re-upload, as those who have been here long enough will already know!

I was hit with a huge wave of nostalgia when I stumbled upon this video! I was even more surprised to find that I remember all the girls’ names! I really loved this SKE!

And looking at this vid, soon going to re-watch the series too, I realized yet again how AKS failed yet again! SKE knew how to use WMatsui. NMB knew how to use SayaMilky! Meanwhile for ten damn years AKS was just sitting on MAYUKI until they were no more! MAYUKI for crying out loud – the single best ship in the Idol world and they just let them go by just like that!

Calm breaths BG, calm breaths.

Anyway, enjoy, or re-enjoy. And if you haven’t watched Mousou Deka yet, get to it. I know almost 98% of the girls are already gone but still, it was fun as heck!

CROW’S BLOOD 01 – Yuri-sense Overloading!!

Okay, this has been way overdue but I am glad I waited because the other day I was re-watching episode one after getting the second episode in HQ and I noticed something very, very interesting. Now of course this might as well be just the fruit of my CBS shipping heart but who cares. This is how I do things. I approach media with the couples that I dig and my ship in this drama is of course CBS.

Not to brag as well but notice how even my subconscious is great at detecting non-yuri? I am an avid shipper of Mayuki and if you are shocked by that, shame on you, but you must have noticed that I have not mentioned Mayuki in context of this show even before it aired! We knew nothing then but as if my conscious was looking out for me, I never even entertained the idea of Mayuki in this show, or as we should know it Mai/Kaoru!

Instead my mind was all on CBS AKA Mai/Maki. I have deluded myself more than I should already about this ship but then it was just my inner shipper going out of control basing my happies on just what could be instead of what has been.

Well, forget delusions! After the two episodes my delusions are seemingly on their way to becoming reality! Seriously, my jaw dropped the more Mai/Maki scenes we got and more of this when we get to episode 2 but for now, let’s stick with the first episode.

Before I go into it let me tell you that interesting something that I noticed. So we know Maki and Kaoru are the two leads. What is that something that every leading character has? A relationship. In some cases where it is a duo lead story like this, the two mains are usually put into the relationship and even when it looks like they aren’t, they eventually end up together because it was all for the drama. That is usually in romance stories.

Now, one might argue that Crow’s Blood is no romance story but all who have seen both episodes know what is going on with Kaoru and that Dude! Seriously by the end of the second episode Kaoru is ready to have that Dude’s babies! More on Kaoru’s side of things later.

So, they have obviously given Kaoru a love interest and no matter how you look at it, Kaoru/Maki is not happening! So Kaoru has her emotional corner covered that leaves the other lead Maki. What about Maki? Where is her emotional anchor? Are they going to leave her hanging while they take care of Kaoru so well? Is it because she is kinda zombie and thus unable to be in one? Bullshit! We have seen enough evidence to know that Maki has feelings. She is like Arcueid in Tsukihime/Melty Blood, or Alucard in Hellsing or the Wolfman or any other lead in the monster-led story. She is the Beast and so she must have her Beauty. In other story structures, the Beauty would have been Kaoru but we know now that is not the case in Crow’s Blood. In fact it couldn’t be farther from that.

Yes, Maki is going around kissing girls left and right (by the end of episode one – zero, but by two – four!!!) but of course there is no romantic meaning behind that, otherwise that last kiss in the second episode would make things super awkward!

And so there I was, re-watching the first episode and then going on to the second and then my brain exploded in wonderful chocolatey fireworks! I found the Beauty to Maki’s Beast. I found Maki’s emotional anchor. I found her relationship thread in a character that shocked me beyond belief…

Mai!

Yes, I had had delusions of this before the series started but of course that was all in my mind and never did I think that there would actually be something to it until the shows began! My mind was completely blown! When that thought occurred to me it grew like a cancer. It could not let go of me to the point of actually, actually, having a dream of this ship! I might not convince you as I might need more evidence with the following episodes and actual results, which might not really happen but let’s take it step by step and begin with this first episode…
