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!
So, I was watching the Team 8 performance on the 11th (@11:30am) and during the self-introductions, which were accompanied with complimenting the person to your right, SERIKA went and surprised me by her love confession for Yuriyan! She had three nice things to say about Yokoyoko (Yuriyan), which makes her the one with the most compliments, and the last one was that she loved Yuriyan!
