Dear 2017…
1284749393-buseyclapping

Seriously, this year is starting off at a pretty great start as far as I am concerned! There I was thinking that the drama version of Saki would be starting next month (it is still officially starting/commencing next month) when BAM!! not only do I find that there are Blurays already on sell, making think that they would be doing the Netflix thing and dump the whole series on Bluray (Bluray people!!!!) but then I found out that four episodes had already aired!!! Three of which had been subbed already (as of yesterday)!!?!

God bless you Japan! Seriously, God bless you!

On top of that, Avex decided to finally make available the Premium Set of TGS’ gey movie and right then I was totally sold! Me believes, dear Readers, that 2017 might just give 2016 a run for its money. Now of course there is no beating the year that gave us ‘Ahgassi/  The Handmaiden’ but really, that is not a fair fight. But when we talk about who is coming close, then I have a feeling that 2017 is looking pretty promising!

I of course already binge watched the Saki subbed episodes but 720p is so five years ago! If a better quality exists you bet ya I’ma gonna be getting it and I did! Not only do I get to enjoy the gayness in super awesome raw quality but I get to enjoy the behind the scenes that come only with the special editions (which I got, duh).

And with that, if you will excuse me, I need to go feed my soul (It feeds off yuri and quality).

Please don’t change!

I only wish I could get ‘Lost in the Supermarket’ before Christmas as well but hey, beggars can’t be choosers, am I right!

It has surely been too long since I got anything in the mail. But things are looking up and with Ahgassi starting to hit shelves around the world, Late Winter/Spring are going to be some great months!

First up I got Yukirin’s First tour Blu-ray, Tokyo Girls’ Style 21st Single CD that comes with a kinda PB, a movie that promises some interesting yuri in the form of those unique Japanese movies I have been missing lately and finally we got Aoyama-sensei’s fourth entry into the SCHOOL GIRL COMPLEX series. And of course it is all kinds of gay! TGS’s kinda PB is also kinda gey, everything is gey, except of course ma Goddess. Kind of hard to be gey by thy self you know! Sigh, how I wish the Majisuka Play was on here…

Another time then.

So be on the look out. When I get time I am scanning things and all that.

[TGS] HitoMiyu Mayuking in Mille-Feuille

HitoMiyu – Tokyo Girls’ Style’s Arai Hitomi and Yamabe Miyu, are the only other ship I know of that has not changed in any way since their debut. The first one is of course Mayuki. Actually HitoMiyu is purer than Mayuki, in the sense that there were no wars like the SaeYuki or HaaYuki or NakaYuki. There was a time, believe it or not, where I too actually shipped some of those more than Mayuki because in the beginning they were not that public about their closeness and there was a lot of grey areas.

Meanwhile HitoMiyu, the only rival they have had was in the AyaMiyu and the strange MeiMiyu. Strange because in PVs sometimes we got that pairing, like in LIAR, where they even kissed (kinda) and even in this very PV for their 21st Single Mille-Feuille, MeiMiyu has been hinted at. But all fans know that Mei belongs to Yuri and the management know it too. They proved that when they finally showed them off in their gayest PV ever TSUIOKU. We have yet to see AyaMiyu being supported in media and with Ayano no longer with the group currently, well, chances are very slim.

As for MeiMiyu, I have a feeling we will be seeing more of them in PVs because for some reason someone up there just loves their pairing. And with Mei now the Leader (taking over for Miyu), chances have gone up for sure. Not that I mind this one bit, in fact I ship those two as well. There is just something about them that pulls me in, perhaps it’s the sin of it all?

Anyway HitoMiyu, you think Mayuki’s relationship complex? I find HitoMiyu more confusing. Hitomi is the youngest of the group (currently not so young at 18 going 19 – Oh how they grow up!) and at first glance if might come off as a Big/Little Sister kinda relationship but it is not that simple! Even going way back when Hii-chan was a kindergartener, even back then she seemed to take the Big Sister role towards Miyu.

Even today Miyu is still referred to as the Baby-chara which is really weird when you look at her younger sister who is a member of team B now (yes, that Ayu is Miyu’s Imouto). She really comes off as mature, does she not? I guess she had to be, with a sister like Miyu. Now not to say that Miyu is that childish. She was the leader and though it was because she was the eldest at the time, when it came to doing the job she was on the role. She kills the MCs and while not as funny as Yuri, she is just so good at it! When she goes into serious mode, it’s SRS business!

Outside work though, Hitomi is the mature of the two. Hell, she is the top for sure, if we are speaking in those terms but then when you see them on their shows or live streams it is Miyu who pampers Hitomi all the time! A second wasted opening a paper bag? Miyu to the rescue. Whenever she is talking about something to do with Hitomi, Miyu will always touch her arm and look to her.

Meanwhile Hitomi always watches Miyu whenever she is speaking and it’s like…God! You would think that they would have outgrown those little things especially now that Hii-chan is almost an adult but noope! Heir LINE videos still has them acting that way, Miyu treating Hii-chan like she was her precious baby and Hitomi letting her and looking at her like she was her sun or something.

Okay, I need to make a yuri MV of TGS, like, yesterday! I have been doing dance vids mostly of them but I think between all those lovely PVs and a whole movie, a yuri movie about this very ship!!! A yuri FMV is in order, nay?

Yeh!

See ya round…

So sorry this took long but a Reader reminded me of this when they commented and reminded me of how awesome Miyu is and so here we are with the second episode/part of this story.

Seriously, Miyu was a total Badass in this movie! I really love TGS, they know how to utilize the girls’ traits/skills. Of course Ayano and Mei would play Angela the Diva of The Narrows! Of course Yuri would take on the bouncer role, with her usually masculine ways. And of course Miyu would play the scary role! Many people cower under her just from looking at them! Definitely the best choice for a yakuza!

Then there are the relationships between the characters. Just as usual in their works, there would always either be something between Miyu and Hitomi or Miyu and Mei. They were connected here too, in fact much more so than usual all three were connected unlike before. The intensity between Hitomi and Miyu was off the charts this episode. Sadly it is not in a romantic way but rather in that clashing way! They are enemies, there is no denying that but at the same time there is something under the layers that just makes us fans jump in our seats with giddiness!

Interestingly Ayano wasn’t neglected this time around. She is usually the third wheel when it comes to pairings but not this time. That is all I have to say about her at this moment as anything more would be spoilers. Then again I am pretty sure if anyone has seen the first part they have seen the whole movie seeing as it is not broken down into parts. But please pretend it is!

Meanwhile with Mei and Yuri, things go back to the usual with them not being utilized in official works. The only time we got MeiYuri was in Tsuioku, before and after that Mei was strangely almost always paired with Miyu. It got to the point where I thought there would be bad blood between those two. But then again it is all professional, Yuri still gets to have Mei to herself outside of work so…Anyway let’s move this along.

[TGS] Hard Boiled Night ep01

The Narrows

Praised be Tokyo Girls’ Style and that includes their management and sponsor (Avex). I am sure there are some of you that are getting sick of me just worshipping this group but their fan service is almost godly! This is strange considering that they are less dependent on fans than any other Idol groups a fact is stranger now since they are no longer Idols. Yeah, I mentioned it a while back but TGS have taken that first step to their dreams by graduating from a mere Idol group to full artists. ‘Stay With Me’ being the first evidence of this reality as the lyrics for that single were written by Yamabe Miyu the previous leader (Shyoji Mei is the current leader of TGS). Speaking of Miyu, her little sister just joined AKB as a Draftee member for Team B. And speaking of those three Draftees, they have already performed their first song (Miniskirt fairy) which happened before Hikari’s graduation performance.

Going back to TGS, when I heard that they would be graduating from being an Idol group, I was really worried! To me graduating means much more than what it does to the others. If a member graduates from a group even if they are going to still be in the entertainment industry like movies of TV dramas, they are different! For example Acchan, sorry, Assan is different to me now! I still miss Akarin (Momoiro Clover) terribly and would be all over Momoclo once again like I was were she to return but even as she is still in movies and TV, it is not the same. I won’t be going out of my way to look out for all the projects she in. This will probably be true with Yukirin when she leaves AKB. Things are just never the same! And so I was worried about TGS!

But it seems there was no need for worry because TGS has not changed! They are still doing exactly what they were doing before. They are still holding LIVE performances – at a frequency that would put any other group except the 48G to shame! They still do their lovely streams and still release singles Idol style. Then again maybe the momentum just hasn’t picked up yet. I don’t think that is the case though.

What is this post about exactly? Well dear Readers, I am sure you remember last year when I was posting about these preview videos they put together for their special live. The title for that five month project was ‘Hard Boiled Night’ and they would release a special video for each month’s performance. Those previews were so good I was crying for a full TV show based on those short videos or even a movie. A good few months later and guess what happens?

Those awesome Devils go and release a full 2 hour movie of said project!

Like, how happier can a TGS fan be after this fact! Now sure we internal fans got fucked over with that 5tsu premium box incident when they only released them at a handshake event and thus impossible for us to get out hands on them but other than that, TGS and their management have had a perfect record since day one! I even forgive them for that fiasco with the release of Hard Boiled Night. They did not have an obligation to release those special LIVEs! In fact they just included the thing as an extra in their 1st major album instead of releasing a boxset of those lives on their own like they would have had they intended on releasing them in the first place. Could it be that they were actually making up for the 5tsu miscall?

Now Hard Boiled Night is not a feature length goldmine like any other movie. Like we might have deduced from months, actually a year now, this was episodic. There were five episodes in total but instead of just putting these episodes together seamlessly like say how Innocent Lilies did it with their BD release, here with Hard Boiled night, they included cuts of the LIVE performances right in between scenes in the movie parts. While you might think that this would be a distraction from the story, it is actually not. In fact the songs they choose to include complement the story perfectly. Sure it was different watching a movie like that; to go from a serious scene to a stage performance but it was done well!

Just like their first single ‘Kirari’ and their first intro into the acting department in their two movies 5tsu and Noroi no Kotodama, the girls surprised me once again with Hard Boiled Night, which is kind of like their first real Drama, after all, it was episodic! I believe I have mentioned it but I was really surprised by the story in Noroi no Kotodama and more so by the acting of the girls who had like, a month of experience (they shot the two movies 5tsu and NnK almost at the same time). The twist in NnK was just too brilliant! I remember the sound in that movie getting so much on my nerves that I thought I had gotten a faulty disc but it turned out that was all part of the plot!

Actually since chances are that I will not be blogging about that movie I don’t see why I can’t talk about it with spoilers here. The movie was so well put together that there was no way you could have figured out what was happening without watching it through to the end being hit with that twist! At the surface it looked like another haunted movie – A group of students who get stuck in school and start to experience supernatural events. That is what you get to think until the ending! I think the concept has been done before but executed differently and that is that the whole class, apart from Hitomi’s character and her friends who had come to this haunted school, the students that were in uniform at school were all ghosts but did not know that they were dead! When you are watching the movie from their perspective, the sound is really off and distracting. You only learn the reason for this when you find out that it was like that because they were in a different dimension, forgotten by time as they died without knowing it and thus thought they were still alive. That was until strange things begin to happen.

Yeah, strange things happening to ghosts, believe me spent the night upon watching that movie without sleeping! It is such a great movie and reminds me a lot of Stephen King’s Langoliers! That movie is three hours long and yet every time I start to watch it I could never stop. It was just so intriguing and one of a kind.

Will I ever never be distracted?

Hard Boiled Night was just another surprise from TGS and co. The actual thing was way more serious than I actually thought it would be. That ending man, that ending was so not what I was expecting. But then again, the route the story took was nothing like I was expecting! I figured it would be just fun! They wouldn’t be such serious characters and I thought I would have to write a fic to take tackle the dark side of the story but the joke was on me! The story was as serious as you would think one would be with characters like Yakuza and Bouncers!

And since I am getting into spoiler territory here, might as well start the actual post…
