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…

[AKB48] Still Dreaming

I know Sakura-tan, I know!

It’s the only explanation because I still can’t get over the fact that there is an MV out there with this much Yukirin. That there is a single line-up out there that has her spot on centre a few times at the front!

Not even the Kayousai LIVE performance made me get these facts through my thick skull! That just goes to show you how starved we Yukirin fans have been all these years! Well, again like I said, better late than never! We never got a MAYUKI single but I am choosing to believe that AKS so the error of their ways and are looking to avoid repeating that same mistake with Yukirin!

As for the performance, just as I suspected it was not performed in full! Then again the three centers were missing so I guess I forgive them? Speaking of the missing centers (Sakura-tan, Hiichan and Nako), they were replaced by apparently the top three dancers (in what?) in STU48’s Kadowaki Miyuna taking over for Nako, Team 8’s Hijiri taking over for Hitomi and STU48’s Mitsuki for Sakura! Kinda surprised at these replacements. I really need to see those auditions!

Not that I care but I was under the impression that Kanon was considered the best dancer in STU48 and don’t get me started on Team 8! Miyuna is my STU oshii but really? Maybe just a few girls auditioned?! Again, i don’t care and really, these three fit in right fine in the senbatsu!

I of course miss Sakura-tan and I wanted to see my CBS but I don’t know if it was a blessing or what because the relevant parts were not performed so  I guess not much was missed! And they did include a BTS of the filming of the MV so I got my dose of CBS then!

Also, also, I had YuiYuki to keep me company and I tell you all now, this ship is really growing on me! Those two had almost the same hair-do in this performance and you would be hard pressed to not think them of as sisters were you to see them on the street waking together looking like this! Is it just me or does YuiYui look like the old Yukirin with her high ponytail?

So cute >.<

For some odd reason I noticed them a lot more here. Maybe it’s because Sakura-tan is missing so I can concentrate on YuiYui more or because my love for the ship is growing out of control or the cameramen just can’t resist like I do, either way I love it and them even more than I did a few days back!

Also, also, those mad men just went and did it! They gave me an Easter Egg! Like, I never even imagined that I would ever see an Easter Egg in a Music Video of all places! But those absolute madmen did it when they pulled moment from Teacher Teacher, albeit mirrored, and dropped it right smack middle in No WAN MAN! What am I talking about? This of course…

I stan!

Speaking of noticing things, can you believe that I did not notice Sashiko in the MV at all! Like, I was surprised to see her on the covers because I did not think she was in the MV! And yet here she is! Was she in the MV? I guess I have to watch it again to make sure! Seriously, I don’t remember seeing her at all!

The song is still growing on me but the dance has got me hooked! I just pray that inevitably they do a full version! Today too though we have to take away the good fact that it was not cut to pieces! It’s one of the things I can’t stand on Korea’s Music Shows! The editing gives brain damage! Here though the camera lingered and let you sock in the dance moves to your fill and when Yukirin was on screen in her uncut glory, I was in heaven!

Seriously, credit where credit is due! Took you long enough but thank you AKS, thank you for giving Yukirin her just desserts! And you know, now I kind of understand why they never gave her the light of day because when she is centre, she literally and figuratively shadows some of if not most of the other girls! Just look at her in that middle spread, she is so powerful >.<

Still can’t believe this is happening!

[AKB48G] Appreciating UZA

akb
Lance-Reddick-Goddamn-right

Well, other’s are, because I have been appreciating UZA since it was released way back in 2012 (which feels like ages ago)!

Just today a fan in Japan posted this as he praised the senbatsu that was UZA! While I love the single and the post was originally about how godly the senbatsu was and UZA is still to this day my favourite single from the whole 48/46 Groups, You damn well know why I chose to make a post about it now!

It always puts a smile on my face when I see people recognizing Yukirin’s first biggest feat! It actually isn’t the real first biggest – that was her becoming the first ever Handshake Queen, which in turn enabled her to pull off that legendary feat – breaking into the feared Kami 7 and thus earning her the name- God Killer! She slayed so hard they had to turn the name from Kami 7 to Kami 8, which essentially means that since then the Kami 7 was dead, so was its legendary status! Sure the girls still use the term these days but its glamour is long gone!

In case you did not know…I worship only one Idol! Welcome to Yukirin World!

Anyway, that’s that. Some pics to take us back to the old times after the jump…

[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…

Yep! That be me!

It’s been too long since we had a Goddess worshipping post and while my love for Idols is waning slowly (God, these graduations take a toll on a person!) my love for a certain woman is still undying! And with the latest Ravijour images…well…even if I was a skeleton I would be fully revived!

And not only that but the new single Teacher Teacher has me wishing Yukirin was a KPOP member…Oh wait, there is this new Korean project with the 48 family, right?! Well, I guess that explains the weirdness of the concept of the new single!

Also for once I feel like Yukirin has gotten the right amount of screen time in an MV since, like, forever! So really, where Yukirin is concerned, everything is just perfect!It is enough to drown out the bad things going on right now with all the graduations and thus saying goodbye to a sister group.

But positivity today, positivity!
