Yes, I would do anything for yuri, even sitting through another Majisuka Gakuen Series! And as such episode 03 just slapped me in the face with some great bait in Hinata/Katomina KAIZER/EINS yuri goodness, the best we have ever gotten in this series hands down!
Which begs the question – where the hell was my Black/Gekikara yuri goodness!?!
Anyway, the fact that NGT is involved, let alone my Kami of NGT (Hinata-chan obvi!) and her being the gay one on top of being the Bitchass Villain Mistress, well, let’s just say my heart is not that strong!
I came for the gay and after three episodes, I can assure you that it is the only thing I am staying for! Which gives me the chance to make an apology…
Dear Paruru, wherever you are, I beg for your forgiveness for being so hard on you in the third season! You were no where near as bad! I am so sorry!
“Watashi no mae ni tatsu-“ *BARF*
As such, I have nothing to say about the show other than commend it for keeping one thing consistent – The Villains still are >>>>>>>>>>>> than the Heroes! All the way from the first season, to the third, to the fourth, and now! (WTF 5th season?!)
You would think that these shows would be about the bad guys seeing the world the shows are set in. Will we ever get a series focused on the Villains and showing them winning over the Goodie two shoe wannabes?
Sorry I asked!
Meanwhile AKS still winning the Worst Decision Maker Company Award by once again not utilizing Yukirin! Like, I have given up on that company in this regards! The best nod to her in this whole series is going to be this…
I am 1000000% sure of it!
Anyway, I am going to continue watching, only for KAIZER-sama and EINS and to find out who ZWEI (Megu) is jealous of. Is it EINS or is it KAIZER-sama? Most likely EINS, I mean those death stares were kind of a give away!
Also why does KAIZER-sama call EINS No.1? No.1 what, the strongest No.1 or WAIFU No.1? I mean episode 3 leans towards WAIFU but usually the sweet ones are the worst in situations like this…bar Gekikara of course! That girl was off the rails 24/7 all personalities on crack!
And since when did Hinata-chan get taller than Katomina? I swear I remember her being shorter in Higurashi…
I mean of course the one that dethroned her is already graduated so there is that (Oh God, Miki-chan is already graduated. I feel old) but still, even with her still around Yukirin was still the Queen!
Anyway, this is a short clip from one of the NGT48 3rd single extras about Kitarie. The time was during the 2018 Request Hour as they announced the Top No.2, and thus the girls knew who the No.1 was – which was NGT’s 2nd.
Yukirin’s reaction was of course priceless.
And speaking of that clip, Yukirin’s side sure was over-powered as opposed to Kitarie’s. I mean it’s no competition but still! And I have to say that I would totally be down for this ship…
No no, not Yukki (YukiYuka), that ship has already sailed, but rather the other two – YukiAya. Speaking of Aya, that girl is the epitome of sexy, isn’t she? I don’t know why but just looking at her makes me attracted to her! Those are some attractive facial features she has! Now I want a sexy Unit with her and Yukirin, and maybe throw Mahohon in there since those two are almost like they are Sisters from different fathers.
Yukirin has gone through more partners almost as much as Batman has his side-kicks!
Yes, I just implanted that thought in your head and it will never go away, not now, not forever! And as such it both saddens and makes me happy! I just hope she is not going to turn into Batfleck at the beginning of BvS in 10 years (get it?)!
This post though is about LOD performances with two particular partners in Milky and OgiYuka! I have wanted to write about that Saturday Night unit of Yukirin and Milky’s for a while but I totally forgot about it! Then NGT48’s NIII 3rd Stage hit and the memories came flooding right back!
But first, let me talk about the title and then we shall move on! Way back in the day (around 2010s), it was usually Rena that was the default partner to Yukirin, most especially in MVs! This of course oiled down outside that into the Majisuka Gakuen show, Shuunkan AKB and Mechaike shows and then some Concerts. Those two had a similar vibe that Yukirin has with all the mentioned girls, despite each girl being similar to her in a different way. For Rena it was more about their outer personalities. Also there is that fact that they were the same age! Seeing their age next to their names next to each other was satisfying to say the least!
Then there is this mysterious connection between her and Kojiharu! Mysterious because no one knows exactly what it is only simply boiling it down to their sexisness (These two have had to go head to head in the AKB Kouhaku more than once) but it goes much deeper than that. On the surface they are so polar they negate one another. Kojiharu’s graduation concert was full of this hilarity! And yet when you put them together they fit, if you demagnetized the pieces first of course! We have seen their combi enough times both in MVs and in concerts too.
Then there is Milky! She is perhaps easier to connect with Yukirin as they are both very known for being the Fish Masters. On Yukirin’s side it will only be old school fans that know this part of her side because she was basically the person that invented the term ‘Kami Taiyou’. She was the first Handshake Queen, proving that there is power in that event when she became the person that broke the Kami 7 wall and blew it into oblivion (was changed to Kami 8 soon after) when she too the 3rd position right next to Acchan and Yuuko because of the fans she garnered in Handshakes!
Fans, even none fans now of course know it was not a gimmick! She is always like that! TV shows, Theatres, Stages, Radio! She is always full of life! Which I think is the reason that she is no longer referred to as much as the Fishing Queen. Milky and Daasu are the prefect description of that term. And so Milky is similar to Yukirin in that way. This has also proven to be a reason to put them together!
The first time they were paired together was during Managu (Manatsu no Sounds Good) MV where the Elite were paired with the so-called Next gen (when is this next exactly?). Then Yukirin went to NMB Team N and then Milky came to AKB Team B and things escalated from there. Despite being hated by the Osaka fans back then and having been there for a short time, she got a new duet with Milky, a sexy new duet, where we first got to see her release the inner beast, with her grabbing Milky’s assets (And probably thinking of them before going to bed the following nights *wink*) in Heart no Dokusen*.
But all these girls are gone now! The obvious choice , always the first choice, Waifu Mayuyu (*cries some more*) is also leaving! But the Queen is still here and she still needs that partner to share her brilliance with!
Enter NGT48’s Ogino Yuka!
Before even things were made public to us in this decision, gears were already turning! Nay, even before this time the gears were already in motion! We go all the way back to even OgiYuka and Gatanee were official NGT members! I am of course talking about those two’s Baito Days where they worked for, not were members of, AKB48.
These two already met back then! It was after then, it was because of then, when the members helped Mayuyu get Yukirin a present (already tastes like chocolate in here) that Yukirin got to meet these girls and it was in meeting them then that she and Kitarie chose them as the starting members of NGT48.
Then skip forward and before the miracle of SSK2017 even happened, fate was already on the move! Yukirin and OgiYuka were already decided to be partners in the 3rd Stage of NGT48. The opening performance of which I have taken these caps from!
Then came the SSK where the impossible happened, once again! Now that I think about it, almost all of these partnerships have produced a kind of miracle! With Kojiharu Yukirin had her first Center position. While Yukirin was slaying Kamis in SSK, Rena was slaying Kamis in Majisuka Gakuen as Gekikara! And then here comes OgiYuka!
OgiYuka who came out of no where and not only made it into Senbatsu but she took, of all the positions, she took Yukirin’s previous position in SSK!!! Yukirin who had decided this time to not participate! Only to find out merely days later that these very two people are actually in the same unit in the new Stage?!!!
I was all kinds of shook that I do not even remotely blame the people who shouted of conspiracies because this was just so far out field it was abnormal! To me though things were not as drastic, as I have seen my Queen do some impressive things already! All I got was enlightenment! The heart-felt hugs during the Showroom of the SSK made more sense when I saw the two in their new song ‘Zankoku na Ame’!
Yukirin (And Kitarie) already mean so much to OgiYuka and Gatanee! Speaking of Gatanee, sometimes I even think of Gatanee sometimes I even think of Yukirin as her ‘pot of gold’. If you remember a certain NGT Stage where they played a game and whoever Yukirin picked from the random names would be the Center of Flying Get, Yukirin picked Gatanee’s name! Gatanee was Center because of Yukirin! And if you look here in SSK, as we know unlike NMB, here Yukirin has quite a fanbase in NGT so had she taken part in SSK, there is no doubt there would have been a rally to drive someone to the top and between the two the one with the most chance would have been Yukirin!
So, even if unintentional or otherwise, Yukirin not participating saw to OgiYuka breaking all kinds of logical laws! And before now I had never even entertained the thought that these two would be compatible in any way! But then I saw the performance. And I was crying!
Yukirin is like ‘The Bridge between the People’! With Kojiharu and Miichan especially, she broke the boundaries of Gens. With Rena, Milky and OgiYuka, the bridged the Families of 48! With OgiYuka, Moechan, Okappa-chan, the Kouhai can mix better with the Elite Senpai. And most especially with Mayuyu, she showed that same-gens don’t have to come down to rivalry! We see the fruits of this most clearly with NGT!
And it is at this very moment that I realise I have lost the point of this post! Oh well, I have a lot of caps for you all to chew on after the jump in regards to Milky and OgiYuka’s LOD partnership and I will conclude that I am all up for OgiYuka taking over as the official partner to Yukirin! Before this new Stage my best option was Yuihan but that thread seems almost pale in comparison! I don’t know what happened in that performance but something just clicked with me! Maybe some one will see it after seeing the pics?
Like, this is no regular SSK, this is the YUKIRIN BOWL!
Jesus, I have never seen so much hugging, hand and eye sex in the same sitting like I have done with this 9th SSK Showroom special hosted by none other than yours truly, the Idol of Idols – Kashiwagi Yuki!
Dear Yasusu, whenever you ever look to retire, do not worry, there is a worth successor to your Kingdom. Yes, I know who you are thinking of already but you know, just in case you ever have to fall back to plan B, I am just saying!
But that is talk for other people, what I am interested in is the real subject at hand and that is WHO WON THE YUKIRIN BOWL?! That is going to be a tough one! And yes, that implies that Mayuyu might not have had it easy this time around! But that explanation requires details and time for those I do not have right now. There were of course some disappointments, I am of course looking at you Okappa-chan, Sakura-tan and Sashiko too! Actually add Sayaya and Jurina on that list too. I was expecting something from them and I did not get it but hey, competition was really tough and some already gave up all the way from the get go when Mayuyu struck the first blow! A blow that only the Soukantoku could counter by managing to take some points off the table in the early stages before the game even started!
Seriously, if you haven’t watched this showroom yet, you watched the wrong SSK! Get to it already! There are countless copies of this on YouTube, A!O has it too (though I do not recommend their copy. It skips a lot towards the last 3rd of the video).
But even though the battle is to soon be decided, here are my Top contenders:
Mayuyu (of Course)
Okay, that doesn’t help at all, huh? Well, that is all I can do. But really, who am I kidding, you all know Mayuyu is going to be in the Top 2 so…
Anyway, chew on this for a while and I will see you soon…
Is it even possible to love something that doesn’t fully exists? Well, looks like it is as I am here experiencing just that with the as of yet to have a full Gen member list NGT48! You would think that at this moment it would be a great challenge for a new group and granted it might be hard depending on the girls they choose during the auditions but that bridge shall be crossed when we get to it, for now, with what we have, everything is looking great as far as I am concerned!
