So, yesterday Takahashi Team B (That would be Takahashi Juri to the newbies, welcome by the way) had their solo concert leading up to the Request Hour of this year. In case no one knows, Yukirin is everything to me and of course that would mean that Team B comes with the territory as my favourite Team.

This time around though there are a lot of girls and I have to confess that I am not yet familiar with all of them, especially the new Team 8 (I know the first gens) and the KKS girls! But I am getting there and having watched a few stages and the new Concert releases, I am getting there!

I am not sure if I talked about this new Team before. Usually I talk about all new Team B formations so I am going to briefly mention my thoughts on this new Team and might get back to it later once I have gotten to know all the girls. And sadly the team has already lost girls. Miyu is gone and Hiichan is off to Korea for two years as a member of I-ZONE but at least they left behind one performance with all the rest in that first performance during the ‘Jaabbajaatte nani?”  concert.

I was of course saddened too that Rei-chan left and that Sayaya did not come back cause I still don’t understand the reasons for the Team Ballots if the members we going to be shifted to different teams later on anyway! I guess it could be worse, Yukirin could have been transferred out of Team B, which as of now, that would be a crime against the Universe and I am sure that it would fight back to right that wrong and bring balance back to life!

What’s done is done so I loved on to appreciate the new Team and the first thing I was happy about was Juri! I really loved her and Yukirin’s interactions during, what I like to call Yukirin’s 2nd stage (after B5 – Theatre no Megami) which most know as SS7! Just search for SS7 on Aidoru!Online in case you want that stage! I really love SS7 and correct me if I am wrong but it is not over yet, right? There hasn’t been a Last Performance stage for it, right? I really love that stage, especially LOVE TRIP! Yukirin nails that song so hard!

So when Juri came over to Team B, and not only that but she is the captain, I was really happy. I wanted to see their continued chem and bickering! In terms of people, the other choice I was really happy about was Megu! I have a really soft spot for that girl! And especially when she is paired with Yukirin. Which of course means that you won’t be surprised when I say that I got into her after I saw her and Yukirin’s Temo Demo Namida. They have an energy to them that is kind of similar! Just look at the pics above!

Another great thing about this new team, is actually in the title they chose for this concert. They are not only cute (which is an image that has been long associated with Team B, no matter the members) but they are much more this time around! Not only do we have Oya Shizuka but we have Nakanishi Shiori as well! That there is the comedians and Yukirin and Juri fall a little in that department! In addition, a lot of the girls are mature which gives it that mature and sexy identity as well. In addition to that, they have also added girls to give it that cool factor, mostly from Team 8 but looking at the images from yesterday’s concert, most of them just need the reason and they have their game faces on!

Speaking of, they apparently performed BEGINNER, RIVER and NO WAY MAN! in succession! Talk about over-tuning expectations! Of course they are cute too, this is Team B we are talking about! It can turn anyone cute! To think that the eldest member on AKB48 is in this team, and that she is still the staple of Idol image…hehehe

I am loving this team as time goes by and I can’t wait for this concert to drop! Now if you will forgive me, I am off to watch their Stage that came with the Concert Blurays so I can enjoy Theatre no Megami 2.0 in full quality!

Of course I am going to talk about my Team 8 Kami’s Birthday Performance! Really, with Yuri, Ikumin and Cho-chan here, there was bound to be drama and boy, drama did we get!

In addition to all the yuri happenings, I also found another crush in new arrival Utada Hikaru sorry, Utada Hatsuka! It has been love at first sight for me with this girl. I was simply drawn to her personality and I hope against all odds that she keeps it and doesn’t lose it down the road. I have a feeling though that she will change, which is unfortunate but until then, looks like my Super 8 List is going to be shifted once again!

To tell the truth though, it is way overdue for an update because team 8 is just soo awesome and with every video I see of them on YouTube my love shifts gears! In fact the list is going to be so different the next time I reveal the updated version you might be shocked. Ah but Yuri is still No.1! She is now THE Kami of Team 8. Nothing can happen to change that now.

But that is not the point of this post. Let’s get back to the birthday performance of Yuri-chan’s that turned into a Love Wars episode…

As I was saying, my Team 8 favouritism is changing so much that I just had to update my list here, you know, for future reference.  Seriously, if you aren’t aboard the 8-wagon yet, stop being in denial and get all over this, like, right now while it’s still hot! Team 8 isn’t just about the lolis. HKT has those, has had them for years and yet they are no where near Team 8’s awesomeness! Other members seem to think that it’s about the lolis too, what with all those lolis drafted just this weekend (except for NGT, YukiRie know what they are doing) but they are terribly mistaken! It’s not about the lolis at all, Team 8 is just…It just is! And to think they were thinking of disbanding it in one year! HA!

So many girls, so many options! For reasons unknown I am having more trouble adjusting to Team 8 than i was all sister groups before Team 8! It’s madness I know! Every LIVE of this Team I watch my priorities shift except for one, Yuriyan shall never be dethroned! The margin between her and SERIKA, who is No.2 has grown so wide over these weeks it’s laughable! I have a feeling too that come 25th when the Sports Meet Airs and I get to watch it, I am going to fall for her even more! My heart has be punctured just from the images from said event so seeing the video is bound to do some serious damage!

Yoko-chan approves of this single so I guess I should too! But still, what’s with this title?! It seems to me that AKS says something different while it does another! Now I will forgive all who roll eyes at me worshipping the ground that Yukirin walks on because they would be right, but isn’t her being too nice, her being a dog that doesn’t eat other dogs for survival like everyone else in the entertainment industry what had AkiP so against her? For crying out loud, he even invaded her drama (Mielion Kashiwagi) to tell her this! Last SSK, or just before it, there was this prediction from those usual guys and one of them said how he changed from a Yukirin Oshii to a DD just because of this very reason!

So then what’s with all this ‘We won’t Fight’ business in an AKB single’s lyrics? It’s like all the beef management have against Yukirin don’t account for the rest of the girls! Put Yukirin in the back lines because she is too tall! That was a ways back excuse. But apparently it doesn’t count for making Ikumin Centre of Team 8, or Rena and Jurina cantering SKE singles since the dawn of time or Kojiharu centring Heart Ereki! Then after realising their bullshit they decide to make Yukirin centre, and we all know how that turned out, don’t we!

Anyway, the teasers for the upcoming single PVs have hit and I gotta say I kind of love this single, even though the only things I like about it are the A-side and Team 8’s PVs. I might of course come back to these after the single is released and I have gotten my hands on the full PV but for now, let’s have a closer at what we got via Oshimen!
