So then, what exactly is it I’m seeing in these caps?!
I mean I had already given up of them since one can go so far with many things in the way (language, quality, society) but it seems yuri is there. I mean it won’t be extreme to the AKB usual standards, meaning no kisses even through a barrier the size of a mattress between their lips but I am one of those who prefer subtext to plate-served yuri.
If anyone is following them, don’t give up on the yuri is all I’m saying. Just put on your goggles and you should be alright ^^
From the few comments I’ve read on my last post, it seems JKT is in a place very restrictive for a group related to AKB to thrive. I mean if many things are going to be changed from their usual formula, how is this still a part of AKB other than name branding and maybe size?
I raided youtube for some material and downloaded a lot of performances and some TV shows of them and I can see what you guys (who sent the lovely comments) are talking about. Too restrictive it seemed to me. If JKT48 thrives, it will prove that AKB can go on even if they lose their charm from the beginning and just turn into main-stream idols. Their numbers will still see them at the top as fans get wider variety of Oshi-pool to choose from.
There are personal qualities I love AKB for that SNH and JKT don’t have and I fear that the bigger AKB grows, the closer they get to turning into just any other Idol group just bigger in size. We can already see that there are groups with smaller numbers that many people prefer over AKB like MomocloZ and the young ones on the rise like TGS. It will only take 1 and everything will crumble. And when it does, I will go down with them too because other groups don’t do it for me. They just don’t have the AKB touch. Sure they might be better singers and dancers but if I was in for the music, I would have stuck to the US. All other Idol groups are like US singers but in groups of cute little girls! Think a young Britney, Christina, Beyonce and Madonna coming together to form a group!
And I just totally forgot the point of this post. Oh wait…
Is this what you guys mean when you say I shouldn’t expect yuri? >.<
