Finally! We finally get to watch the 3rd Utagassen and girl, the good tots outweigh the bad! Third time around and no actual real singing, this is no longer about talent but about how ma Oshi is doing and who made an impact relevant to one’s interests.
And after watching, I have finally gotten an answer to my most complex of questions. Mayuki or Sayacchu! If I am bringing this up now, you are probably already aware of the answer to that question.
That’s right, Sayacchu is now my definition of OTP! They not only went and beat Mayuki but they also beat BuraGeki! Why? Well, here is the thing. Shipping is all find and good and finding your OTP is the best thing ever, until TIME frikkin happens! OTP is a reactor! It needs to be kept going by feeding it more fuel for it to stay in motion. Mayuki is starting to enter its decay period and really, when was the last time we had BuraGeki, 2011?!! My love for my Goddess goes only so far. And this being a relationship, it means that both parties have to deliver and I am not spilling secrets when I say Mayuyu is kinda, lacking these days. My love for her is slowly dwindling where as the love I have for Maachun is sky-rocketing! I mean dear Readers, have a look at this…
Look at how happy she makes everyone! Just, just look! She sacrifices herself, fans call her ugly, there is a reason she doesn’t appear in PMags, all because of the superficial way she is being looked at. Making people smile is much more important to her than her image. She give and gives and yet gets so little in return.
Now this is kind of un-related, but look at the faces around her in that gif. Then look at her. She is just so boundless in giving joy to people. I dare say too that I am jealous of the fan who was the target of that wink and the following smile! Stupid lucky fan.
This character of hers, combined with the one of Sayanee’s that everyone knows, has no equal! All this was wrapped up with the wish I mad made to myself before Kouhaku had started last year. I said that if the White Team (Sayacchu) won over the Red Team (Mayuki) that was a deal breaker for me. If the Red team had won, I would have still resisted, thinking that Fate was still on Mayuki’s side but that was not the case. Sayacchu beat Mayuki fair and square with a huge margin too if I do recall correctly.
I love how members were going crazy when Chupopo raised their hands. It like, they too know great things are coming when Maachun is mentioned. From now on I too am now looking forward to a Maachun segment from all the Group concerts in the future!
And man, that treasure clip at the end of the video, Oh God! Now I can’t stop thinking about this AU-MAYUKI. I don’t know why but I am seeing a sub-unit of these two sometime this year. I just see it. That close proximity they have in the gif >.< Oh God, and them two being my Oshii from their respective groups makes things over 9000 times more attractive!
So now out of the three possibilities of Kami ships, I have had YukiRena, and Machuki. Cherry Blossom Snow has yet to arrive! –_- All I got of htose two is this…
Yeah, I know! Seriously, I think now that they avoid each other on purpose! Come one Yukirin and Sakura, you would make the best Idol sisters if you just tried! Their similarities works for them instead of against and yet they don’t take advantage of that! Yasusu really needs to do something about this! Slap them together if you have to. Then again, his love-hate relationship with the Kagoshima sisters kind of takes the heat out of things too.
It’s not like she is even afraid of HKT girls, or lolis, so why?!! Is she afraid that their closeness will come off as pampering? Like, hell no! I mean it might happen but only from those fans who know nothing of the two. Sakura is already a lioness out in the wild by herself so apart from a few smoothing outs here and there, which can be applied to anyone from a Senpai, there is no real things she can learn from Yukirin.
Just, just once, I beg you dear Management, if you are reading this, just once! Give them a song just the two of them! Just one damn song!
Any way, moving on…Here are the other performances that caught my attention.
What I found interesting, more than the actual performance, was the fact that they went for the Jurina/Sayanee version instead of the usual Jurina/Yuko. I mean Yuko was present, she wasn’t sick, and it wasn’t the Leader thing, Takamina is there after all, so why!
There was just something heart-breaking about her smile here. I just can’t place a finger on it but to me, Miichan seemed changed somehow. She is no longer the same girl. And I don’t mean this in that way. Her whole behaviour has changed which breaks my heart so much. How can I help but love her more T.T
How can I not get giddy with it when Kamonegix is performed! I just wish that they did not always cut that scene where the girls circle Sayanee and Co back and forth (bottom cap). I love that scene the best for some reason. Especially if Shuu has her hair down and her ear tips are pocking out of it. ^^ It just gives me the chills when they do that. Like fighters sizing up their opponents. Sadly since that is Sayanee’s solo part, we are always shown her and Co and not the outer-layered girl.
Putting the fact of whether this was a song for her or not, she most definitely looked the part! And I could not help but chuckled when they called her Yuki Onna! Obviously they are talking about Snow but you know, priorities and all that. Heh!
Thank you! That is all…
Just when you thought you had seen all there was to Temo Demo no Namida! That gif says it all! AnRe were the surprise of the night for me! I don’t know why I did not even know about this! I should have been spoiled of this already but alas! I am not complaining though. The pleasure I got out of watching this was so much more delicious when it hit me like some girl who is supposed to be dead coming back alive!
They just, these two just work! They were perfect for this and that glorious thing they did! That oh so fabulous thing they did…
That wasn’t in the script! I most certainly haven’t seen that before! That moment right there made me jump up in joyous applause before come no, you know me and my hands fetish! And they went and did the thing! A thing I have not seen before let alone think would happen! Like, WTF!!
But, despite this surprise little gem, despite Maachun POWNage, despite all them lolis, the one performance that everyone was looking forward to, the one performance that even almost a month of anticipation and hype, still raged after we finally got to see it. Ladies and Gentlemen, the performance of the night…
