Look, I just want to make things clear. I was only kidding with my first post about these three. I am just your friendly neighbourhood shipper!
I feel your pain Yukirin, I feel your pain…
Yes, I am back at this craziness but really, those who know me shouldn’t be surprised! Every time I dig a new Yukirin ship, I always see potential as long as the two are in ‘spitting distance’! You all know I ship me some Yukirin/Yuihan. we o way back to the Eien Pressure MV days! Which was kind of rare seeing as most were into Paruru/Yuihan or Sayanee/Yuihan and we all know of Yukirin’s side of the story! But like I have said so many times, almost everyone is shippable with Yuikirin as far as I am concerned! Don’t believe me? Just see the Fan Fiction List on the ride hand side!
So this means only one thing, that the new ship has to do with the other Yui – YuiYui – Oguri Yui! This is not the first post about these two obviously. I have already discussed them and mentioned my interest in the ship with the Teacher Teacher single post! Speaking of which, I am still dying for the Making of of that PV! If some can find the photoshoot for the covers with their magic, I will do anything for a copy!
Anyway, the bottom line is that I have been down for some YuYuYu (Yuki x YuiYui) content and then YouTube came through with these videos of the girls promoting this new game that I am sure I will never play! In addition to these three there was Miion, KatoRena, Rin (Okabe) and Narumi (8). And if you were wondering, yes, Miion wanted a part of that beef and KatoRena looked like she was already missing Team B!
Anyway, this is not me moving on so soon after…We all know no one will ever replace her in Yukirin’s life but this is me, I have been shipping others with Yukirin even when ‘she’ was still around! Again, read them fics –>
And so I am putting it out there that I am dying for some YuYuYu content and if you all have come across some that I have not, please do share! I sure hope AKS do continue pairing these up in somethings to come! I mean, it looks like she is being made out to be the new AKB face but she is still green so they need that powerhouse to give a little pushing hand!
Now, if only they used their brains and gave us a single centred by these two! Eh, I know I am wishing on a fallen star, I mean, this is the same company that had MAYUKI for 11 years and never gave them a single! Like, talk about worst management ever! But we are all tired of singing that song, especially now that it shall never ever be heard so let’s move on…
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!
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…
Okay, this has been way overdue but I am glad I waited because the other day I was re-watching episode one after getting the second episode in HQ and I noticed something very, very interesting. Now of course this might as well be just the fruit of my CBS shipping heart but who cares. This is how I do things. I approach media with the couples that I dig and my ship in this drama is of course CBS.
Not to brag as well but notice how even my subconscious is great at detecting non-yuri? I am an avid shipper of Mayuki and if you are shocked by that, shame on you, but you must have noticed that I have not mentioned Mayuki in context of this show even before it aired! We knew nothing then but as if my conscious was looking out for me, I never even entertained the idea of Mayuki in this show, or as we should know it Mai/Kaoru!
Instead my mind was all on CBS AKA Mai/Maki. I have deluded myself more than I should already about this ship but then it was just my inner shipper going out of control basing my happies on just what could be instead of what has been.
Well, forget delusions! After the two episodes my delusions are seemingly on their way to becoming reality! Seriously, my jaw dropped the more Mai/Maki scenes we got and more of this when we get to episode 2 but for now, let’s stick with the first episode.
Before I go into it let me tell you that interesting something that I noticed. So we know Maki and Kaoru are the two leads. What is that something that every leading character has? A relationship. In some cases where it is a duo lead story like this, the two mains are usually put into the relationship and even when it looks like they aren’t, they eventually end up together because it was all for the drama. That is usually in romance stories.
Now, one might argue that Crow’s Blood is no romance story but all who have seen both episodes know what is going on with Kaoru and that Dude! Seriously by the end of the second episode Kaoru is ready to have that Dude’s babies! More on Kaoru’s side of things later.
So, they have obviously given Kaoru a love interest and no matter how you look at it, Kaoru/Maki is not happening! So Kaoru has her emotional corner covered that leaves the other lead Maki. What about Maki? Where is her emotional anchor? Are they going to leave her hanging while they take care of Kaoru so well? Is it because she is kinda zombie and thus unable to be in one? Bullshit! We have seen enough evidence to know that Maki has feelings. She is like Arcueid in Tsukihime/Melty Blood, or Alucard in Hellsing or the Wolfman or any other lead in the monster-led story. She is the Beast and so she must have her Beauty. In other story structures, the Beauty would have been Kaoru but we know now that is not the case in Crow’s Blood. In fact it couldn’t be farther from that.
Yes, Maki is going around kissing girls left and right (by the end of episode one – zero, but by two – four!!!) but of course there is no romantic meaning behind that, otherwise that last kiss in the second episode would make things super awkward!
And so there I was, re-watching the first episode and then going on to the second and then my brain exploded in wonderful chocolatey fireworks! I found the Beauty to Maki’s Beast. I found Maki’s emotional anchor. I found her relationship thread in a character that shocked me beyond belief…
Yes, I had had delusions of this before the series started but of course that was all in my mind and never did I think that there would actually be something to it until the shows began! My mind was completely blown! When that thought occurred to me it grew like a cancer. It could not let go of me to the point of actually, actually, having a dream of this ship! I might not convince you as I might need more evidence with the following episodes and actual results, which might not really happen but let’s take it step by step and begin with this first episode…
Is there even a need to say more about Mayuki in this day and age?! I think not! But even if the need is not there, I will be damned if I do not talk about them! With BuraGeki (Black x Gekikara) no more, Mayuki is now my Mothership!
That’s right, Mayuki were not my 48G favourite ship before. And that is not just on me. Truthfully, there were more viable ships than Mayuki a couples years back before Majisuka Gakuen! Back then there was just something between Mayuki that stopped them from going all the way. Actually I think separating them (Mayuyu to Team A) was what the Doctor ordered to fully seed their relationship. Before that announcement there was always this invisible wall between them but no more.
And since then they have grown closer as the time passed, which is really strange. Usually when people who are close start building walls between themselves as they grow up/as time passes but not Mayuki! No, they are just taking the opposite direction.
Just look at this opening episode of the 21st season of Nemousu! Mayuki just entered a stadium like that!!! Just, just look at them! And the fact that Mayuyu is the one leading the way, that somehow makes things even more unreal! Looking at them one wouldn’t even think they were the Senpai of the Senpai of the Senpai of the Kouhai!! Somehow they have gotten more carefree as time goes on. of course this is only when they are together, at least in Yukirin’s case I am sure. She still is a responsible Senpai (hence all the idolising by other members) but when with Mayuyu, nothing else matters!
Definition of Marriage? I think so!
I have no words!
Why do I keep doing this to my poor soul?! Why did I go and watch this show?! It’s like seeing a bottle labelled with CYANIDE, in a chemical store, and still opening it and drinking the contents because you think that it still just might be water in that bottle. Not even a desperate person in a post-apocalyptic world, a world without water, would make that stupid mistake!
And yet here I was!
I am the stupidest person on this planet to have fallen for this crap again! I still can’t even believe what I am going to say but it needs to be said – Season 5 is the worst season of Majisuka Gakuen!
How the hell did this go so wrong?! Seriously, I think people are looking up to AKB for completely wrong reasons. They should be commended for being Masters of fuck-up-ery! I don’t even know where to start about the first three episodes of this fifth piece of unchi!
They had everything! No, they had more than everything! They had Yuko and Assan back! They had them for a whole episode! Guess what they did with those two!!?! Guess what they did with those two along with Torigoya, Black and Nezumi!!!?
I am too embarrassed to even say it!
They got a go ahead to make a rightly rated Majisuka Gakuen! They had swords. They had guns! They have 200+ girls they could pick a great cast from! Some of these girls have great talents they could have utilised in every department to make a great show! Hell, Mao-kyun could have written a masterpiece of a script 1000x better than the actual script!
They have girls that are already established actresses! Assan and Yuko could have easily taken the role of the villain as the Mafia Bosses! They could have had better chance of continuing on directly from 4 with Yabakune as the big bad! I would have swallowed that better than this..this…
Oh forget it!
And so, to take the poison out of my mind, I figured I might as well put together something short – Something that was left out of the script.
Think of this as what should have happened at the funeral with the old Rappappa members that showed up and Minami of course. Sorry but Nezumi ain’t here because as much I wished it, Nezumi had no ties at all with Black, let alone Torigoya, the only Queens of old that showed up to Salt’s funeral. She was also never on good terms with Maeda so seeing them together wouldn’t have made sense.
That’s right, Salt is dead. The main character died at the fuckin beginning of the story!! And she is not alone in the ether world either!
I swear to God this show…Still, I watched this on my own accord so there is no one to blame but myself!
Anyway, have a read at this meeting between the Original Rappappa since they went their separate ways. And like I said, it follows the 2nd episode somewhat so Gekikara ain’t here either.
