Doro no Metronome

So, HKT48’s 2nd single [Melon Juice] has been leaked so I got the chance to watch all the PVs. Don’t let the caps fool you, there is no yuri in there. Actually, there is if we aren’t picky but that wasn’t their intention which just goes to show that they failed on this one.

If there was yuri, then maybe my anger would have been forgotten, if only for a bit. The anger I feel towards their management! I hear they have a song written about their own fail at sorting out their line-ups in the singles and I hope they try to explain themselves in those lyrics because I am pissed at them so much.

The reason why is no secret, which is what they are doing to Sakura-tan and what came to ass for Haruppi! Seriously, is NMB the only group whose management does things right? I think they are. No seriously, let’s talk about this.

So, Haruppi, chosen Ace for 1st Gen of HKT48, which usually translates into the Ace for the rest of group because duh! Does she have anything to show for her position? Nope! Not a centre single to her name since debut! And it’s not like Haruppi is a fail Centre. She wasn’t even given a chance to fail! Not that she would have because really, Haruppi is one of the top girls in HKT as we know.

Then there is the other First Gen Ace and all around HKT48 Top Girl (after Sasshi). Topping Senbatsu twice in a row with a largeeeee margin between the next HKT rank which also translates into the group’s Ace. Does she have anything to show for over-whelming fan-power? Nope! Not a centred single to her name as well.

And yet who has centred both HKT singles? One 2nd, SECOND Gen Tashima Meru! A Future Girls ranker centring both of their singles! Like, let’s compare. Think if they did this to WMatsui or SayaMilky in their respective groups?! Like, I don’t hate on Meru and Mio, in fact Meru is my 2nd fav HKT girls but this is just absurd!

And then the fans seem to have been fooled into accepting these decisions just because Sakura-tan and Haruppi were centres of the coupling songs…I am like, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!! That should be the other way around! Sakura and/Or Sasshi should be the centres of the main song and then they can make their biases centre the coupling! They even did it wrong! It should have been Haruppi/Meru/Mio trio Centre if they were going for the Bias in the main and the Fans’s favourites in the couplings! Which should have put Sasshi as the centre of Doro no while Sakura was of Kibou no.

They even couldn’t do that right! Fans did not pour all their money into Sakura-tan just to see her be centre of a coupling song, a centre she had to share with Meru once again as if being centre of the A side was not enough! Jesus Christ!

I mean, I even almost forgave them this time because they PVs had potential, great yuri potential. I mean…

Look at that cute Sakumeeru! How awesome would it have been if Sakura was putting that Lover Letter in her shoe locker!? And look at all those other couples too. It would have made such a great short yuri drama but alas! All potential wasted on yet another generic romance shenagigans.

BARF!

But the teasing did not stop there. On the other side in the Haruppi song, which was to be a bit more mature than the last one, you would think they would climb aboard ship but noooooo. We had to settle for Haruppi making eyes at Nattsun, Madoka and Sasshi’s love-hate relationship and Captain ‘s unrequited love for Madoka!

Darn it all, is it so much to ask? I thought you were different AkiP. I really thought you were different. You certainly were in the early days but then again, money changes people, doesn’t it.

Sigh~

I will be buying it any, just for a chance of some Sakura-tan photos. And not all is bad news seeing as NMB just announced their 8th single so…I have almost forgotten about this! Not Sakura-tan though, that girl was too cute as a rabbit to simply forget about.

  1. Odd to think a lot of me buying this goes onto Sakura being in bunny ears (or maybe not :p)

    To be fair though I do like Melon Juice, yeah it’s a bit nonsensical but it’s fun and poppy and really suits HKT like a glove, The B sides are OK I guess, they are both decent song and decent MVs

    I’m so with you on the whole Haruppi/Sakura thing though!

    Starting with Harrupi, I just really don’t know why they did what they did, I mean at least give her a chance for goodness sake! How can you swap your “Ace” out before giving her a single, it will forever be one of the most baffling things the has ever happened in AKS for me, I mean that’s like Real Madrid spending all that money on Gareth Bale only to have him sit on the bench all season (apologies if you don’t get this reference) it just makes no sense (like BlackGeki I’m not hating on Meru or Mio either it’s not them who decided after all) It was one of the joys of this years election to see her rank above Mio and Meru so that she could at least have some vindication in that regard, was, well not a happy moment but it was a moment which I felt was just right…

    More and more Sakura seems to be becoming the “Yukirin” of HKT as far as positions withing the group are involved, she’s always going to be the fan favorite who has other people chosen over her because she’s not “center material” or whatever other excuse you want to give, now it is slightly different because she is winning (in terms of just HKT minus Sasshi) in the elections(though Yuki only got beaten by 3 people yet we will see those ranked below her moved above her in the next single no doubt) and yet is not the “ace” of the group I mean how does that not work? especially for an up and coming group you choose the most popular right? Well apparently not it would seem…..

    • Well, I actually hope they keep on ignoring her so she will be voted into Senbatsu next June LOL!

      I mean it’s not that far-fetched. The girls went from 47 (On her first try!) to 26 n the 2nd!!!!
      And with two spots free, and with ignoring fuelling fans, just imagine it!

      Management attacks using their singles, we fight back where it counts, in THE Senbatsu Elections!

  2. I haven’t watched the PV yet. And then when I saw the pics you provide, I was like => (O______O )!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    MY OTP IS COMING BACKKKKKKKKKKKKKK LOL

    Wow wow wow, this post of yours made my day BlackGeki LOL!!!! Awesummmmm!!!

    I don’t care of Sakura on screen all the time or any girl fights, I got enuf HaruNatsu in the PV, that’s alll LOL

    Thanks again~~~ *Cheers*
