Take it…take it all!!!
dear Mayuki, please just announce that wedding date as that is all that we are waiting for at this rate! Like, are you even kidding me? You know, I really want to meet anyone who knows of AKB48 but doesn’t know who Mayuki are! I really need to meet them as no place is safe! Anywhere they go Mayuki always happens! I mean they do say home is where the heart is so it makes sense for Mayuki World to follow them wherever they go but still!
Even Utage, the one place I thought was safe from Mayuki as Mayuyu seemed to be taking her job there seriously, was not spared! I am of course talking about…
Of course now that I actually have another look, it does look like unlike the other times, this time it is Yukirin who starts things off.
And speaking of this episode, is it only I that always get a smile when Ai-chan and Yukirin perform in these dance battles on the same team? I just, I am this close to starting to ship them two I swear!
But while all is good, the actual reason for this post isn’t actually Mayuki but rather, the meaning of the day before yesterday! By that of course I mean the 15th of July – a very special day as it is my Goddess’ day on which she came into being – Her Birthday! I am ashamed that I did not get to post this on that day but better late than never, right?
Before I go farther, I wish to say to all Yukirinians out there that I hope you are proud to bee a fan and if you are not, you should be! Despite everything Yukirin has reserved her spot in the history of AKB48! Sure it is not being one of the SSK Centres, or any other Centre but really, there are many of those!
What is even more important is that this memory she has created belongs to the people matter more and thus makes the achievement itself that much more important and these are the members themselves I am talking about. Yukirin has garnered so much love from the members that no other Senpai comes even close! I already said it but I will touch upon it again but whoever comes into contact with her, whoever she works with on a project or performs a stage with, those members are always usually affected by and see Yukirin differently.
This was from Shiichan herself if you think I am making it up but even then one is only selecting to ignore the evidence. I am not sure how many follow members’ lives but Yukirin is one of those members that new girls rarely look up to. After time passes, when they meet her then it starts. Think of all the Kashiwagi children (what we call members who Idolise Yukirin) – almost 70% of them did not have her as their Idol in the beginning. And yet now…
And I am going in circles, let’s take a step back in time on Friday. I think I posted last year’s over-whelming number of messages from members to Yukirin on her but if you thought that was a lot, well, try multiplying that by a factor of > 7!! NMB girls, who haven’t seen Yukirin, haven’t performed with her in two or more years, all sent Yukirin heart-warming messages. Girls from Team Bs of old from other sister groups all sent her messages. graduated members sent her messages. Poor NGT girls, who had the luck of being put with Yukirin from the get go, well, I am pretty sure the effects are plain as day! And all to these messages…
Yukirin wrote a personalised reply!!
Like, how can that not make you proud!! Oh yes, if more proof is needed, in the Documentary Book there were various Questionnaires for the members and Yukirin, by almost 40% of the votes, was the most respected member in the 48G by the other members!
We fans are only outside the lass not even looking inside but rather seeing only what is put on display. These members are in the inside. They go through the same everyday life like Yukirin does. They know what goes on in there than we will ever even wish to comprehend. I only recently got this through my thick skull because before I was actually letting what other people said about Yukirin affect me but these days, I see how meaningless those words were, how weightless.
No other member/Kami has touched so many members as Yukirin has. Be it her Kouhai or her own Senpai, everyone treats Yukirin like she was their comrade. There is no distance at all between her and the others.
The only distance that I see and feel is between Management and herself. Not Shinobu though, Shinobu is cool! And that makes me come off as being triggered but I won’t deny that conclusion!
There is more reasons to be proud of Yukirin but I am saving those for the relevant posts to come. For now don’t be brought down by the fact that Yukirin might graduate without ever dominating SSK or solo Centring an AKB single! The latter should have happened by now but I think it is safe to assume that will never happen. Hell, I can see Management approving the Mayuki graduation only because they can deny Yukirin that solo Centre!
But it doesn’t matter! Yukirin doesn’t have to be No.1! Maybe she has to if it means something special to herself but not to us, not to the members! She has already touched us. We will never forget her! The members already know her, see her for what she is and what she is capable of. So be proud!
Be proud to be a Yukirin Fan!
And I am done. Sorry for the rumbling. Jump ahead for the pics (Most of which are from this Friday by the members)…
The last week of July is going to be something else! We have this series to look forward to. We have Majisuka Play starting on the 25th. And from un-disclosable sources, my life might just come to an end on the 27th! Something life-changing is coming my way on that day! Hint? one word – KIM.
Any who back to CROW’S BLOOD…
Oh Thank the Lord! I have been waiting over here wondering if they will have the balls to give us a yuri episode and then BAM! Sure it took them almost halfway through the episodes but ‘better late than never’ has never been truer than now!
So, who was the lucky girl picked to deliver us this precious gift of yuriliciousness? Well, that would be none other than Team 4’s Sub-Captain Okada nana AKA Naachan! Could it be that she cut her hair because of this drama? I doubt it but man, does she look nice with that new ‘Do!!
As for who the other girl is that got Naachan’s emotions all tangled up, I have seen her before I am sure but it is not until now that I have bothered to catch her name and that is Tsukiyoka Kaho.
What a cute little episode! And it surprised me a bit actually. I am not sure if it has been the case for the other episodes because I haven’t watched them seriously (Just skimmed through) but I was surprised with the GOOD END! I am guessing though that the other episodes also had them but this particular one I was actually sighing towards the end because it looked like we were going to get yet another BAD END but then we got a kicker when it turned out to actually be a GOOD END!
Seriously, if this had ended the way we first thought it would, by letting that guy get the girl in the end, I was going to be royally pissed! A guy like that doesn’t deserve a girl like Saki, better yet not a girl like Manami. he was just the worst.
Oh yeah, Naachan is playing Manami and Kaho is Saki!
What if I told you dear Readers that instead of this…
We could have actually had this…?
Yeah, I know I have mentioned this before in one of my earlier Ahgassi posts but the wait for this movie has got me all hungry and I went re-watching my whole list of movies. Last night Actresses was one of the few that I got to watch and that scene between Kim Min-hee and Kim Ok-bin struck me once again with how great it was. In fact I even think that something new came to me this time around. So let’s re-visit it once again…
SRSly, I got nothing!
