Sakura no Ki ni Narō
I ain’t even gonna lie! I ship Savoki and Xiao Ai so hard right now!
That’s right pals, I found out who they are finally after all this time! Savoki and Xiao Ai are their entertainment names and all other members (most of them anyway) have them. Their real names are – For Savoki (The dark long haired girl with a chin to rival Sayanee’s and one of the double centres) is Zhao Jiamin [赵嘉敏] and Xiao Ai (The husbando of course) is Chen Guanhui [陈观慧]. Savoki is 15 while Xiao Ai is 20. Neither if them look their age, am I roit? But unless you are this side of the fandom virgin then this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Any way, with the biography lesson out of the way, I really dig these two. I don’t know if they just go and break the law themselves or if it’s the management’s doing but these two’s interactions in SNH48’s PVs is kind of strange. Usually all the attention (and the gayness) is concentrated on the double Centres and Xiao Ai is kind of like Yukirin in the she seems to be one of the top girls but she somehow ends up on the sides and yet in both PVs so far, there seems to be this kind of on-going theme where we get some SavoAi loving. I hope this is an on-going trend because after this teasing I will be pissed if they are forgotten in the wind.
Speaking of the double Centre thing,did I mention how stupid I find that! So then what if a time comes when two girls actually get the same exact votes in Sousenkyou to be No1 then what?! What will be the value in that monumental event? And what’s the point of doing your best if settling for 2nd is good enough? Feh, I think this is Yasusu’s way of making sure his Biases are not always kicked to the cub by the Fan’s’ favourites. Oh well, he brought us the goods so I guess he can do whatever he wants with them. Doesn’t mean I have to like it though.
So, to see this SavoAi goodness from SNH is quite a breath of freshness where it’s not about the two Centres. Well, the gayness anyway. Not that they don’t try, I just don’t buy it. There is something that stops me from shipping two girls that are at the top who are obviously rivals. I always see this air around them that just smells ‘FAKE’ all over it every time I see them trying to be close.
This was the same with Acchan and Yuko too. Even if they released photos of ‘the morning after’ I wouldn’t ship them. For crying out loud, even WMatsui failed because of this Double Ace thing. I mean if it wasn’t that, I am pretty sure we would already have them as one of the greatest couples of SKE but alas! Which makes you wonder then about Mayuki. These two were the Top of B from day one but where did Mayuki end up?
Oh well, that being said, I love SavoAi because of this. Xiao Ai though she may be among the top 5 or so girls, she doesn’t seem to be that popular even among fans ( tried looking her up, searching for photos and such and it was real hard finding anything on her compared to the other top girls) and yet she ends up all over one of the Centres in their PVs.
How can I not ship that? I am such a sucker for those who do the impossible, and fight the invincible!
Any way, caps from the SHN48’s Sakura PV….
I’m loving it…(No copyright intended LOL).
