AMEN!

Nogizaka is taking no prisoners people for they are putting on even more pressure but upping the awesomeness of their TV shows! This week’s Nogizakatte Doko takes all kinds of serious cake with its theme alone!

That’s right, Valentine’s is just right around the corner so what better way than to make an episode of gift exchanging? No no, don’t cry yet as you remember back to last year’s episode. Nope, this time it’s totally different and all kinds of awesome. Not only are the girls exchanging gifts, but they are between each other, No Himura cock-blocking this time. Better yet, they have to accompany the exchanging with a confession. Like, is that GOLD or what?! I mean, I gotta confess but though I had an inkling of what might happen from last episode’s preview, I did not think they would actually go and do it but they so did! All hail Nogizaka!

And to make things all that much more awesome, we only got through 8 of the sixteen girls, meaning that the next episode is a continuation of this awesomeness! But unlike AKB that will make you wait for the best until the very last, Nogizaka balances things out pretty well by starting with just not anybody but Wakatsuki-sama herself!

Let the drama commence!

First up as said, is Wakatsuki-sama. You have never seen this side of Wakatsuki-sama. She was such a girl here that it was hard to play dumb and deny her love she has for our Captain. I was literally up screaming when she chose Reika as her Valentine. Srly! And her confessions was really sensible and I could see it for its reality. She mentioned how she doesn’t always say stuff like ‘love you’ or ‘thank you’ because you know, she is half boy or maybe just tsundere but she comes out here and actually says it in front of just about everyone – “With love and gratitude, thank you”.

“You love her. You love Sakurai, don’t you?” – Himura

“I love her.” – answered Wakatsuki-sama after a cute display of embarrassment.

I was like, hell yes!

But then when it came to Reika’s turn, all the pins in the world dropped when she said it wasn’t Wakatsuki-sama that she had gotten the present for.

Like, Can you say…Huh?!

Like, WTF Captain?! I couldn’t you see how hard it was for Wakatsuki-sama to come out and even admit her love for you!!?! Madness! And poor Wakatsuki, I can’t even imagine how embarrassing that was for her. Well, she is turning more into a guy now that she has experienced a bit if rejection.

After bone breaking hugs to Wakatsuki in the hopes of making it up to her, Sakurai says I love you all over but it is too late dear Captain, too late! No sex for you for a month!

As for whom Sakurai was thinking of giving her love, ahem, her chocolate to, it turns out to be Nishino but oh shi….There are other who were thinking of humping Nanase, Ikoma and Higuchi were some of them. They rise up to fight for Nanase’s hand in marriage, I mean, for her chocolate.

“Don’t go stealing my Naachan you bitch” – Ikoma

LOL, sorry Ikoma but I wasn’t expecting you to give your choco to Nanase. And Nanase totally belongs to only one girl but more on that later…

First Sakurai’s words – “You must be worried having been chosen as Centre for the first time for our 8th single but I will support you as much as I can so let’s both do our best to make a great single.”

Hmmm, that sounds more like friend choco or support choco so I guess Sakurai’s love is really for Wakatsuki-sama then…

Phew, now to just wait and see Nanase’s answer…

Next up is Ikoma’s confession. She just out and asks Nishino to be her Valentine, oops, I mean Oshimen.

Well, looks like Nanase is till safe for it seems like Ikoma is just a fan of hers, a really hard-core fan. Fans don’t do declaring their Oshimen for themselves, no one likes a selfish fan so I guess Ikoma’s love isn’t of that kind. Still safe on her side as well it seems….Moving on, it’s Higuchi’s turn before Nishino can give us her answer and her words – “Your great smile, your fashion sense and style, I love everything about you Naachan. Please give me ur babies!”

Damn real confession. She was kind of cute that Higuchi. Her confession had a realistic feel to it and I would not hesitate to stamp a seal of authenticity on her feelings. And as if to prove how bountiful her love is, she give not one, but four gifts.

As for the gifts, she got some questionable 4D snails from Sakurai…Like, pls Captain, what are you even doing!?! Does Nanase come off to you as that kind of girl?! FAIL! I guess we know now why she still decided to not give her present to her husband Wakatsuki-sama because like, WTH!?! Where’s the effort! Buying is all fine but at least think of the receiver! That thing is what a 4 yr. old boy would be happy to get as a present, not a 19yr old girl!

Sakurai…FAIL!

Moving on, Ikoma got Nanase a library card, so she could real all the manga she wanted for free apparently since she is into that kind of thing. Hmm…Not bad Ikoma, not bad!

As for Higuchi, she got our new Centre a pair of fluffy stockings (We know Nanase and her stockings, don’t we?) She also got her a couple of handkerchiefs with bird designs on them because Nishino is apparently into birds as well. (Here that Churi?) Then not done yet, there was a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Cup too in addition to another thing I did not catch. Looked like designer tissues but I might be wrong. That Higuchi, she really went all out, didn’t she! This is what love is girls, this is it!

That is all well and good but we don’t know yet who Nanase is going to give her present to yet. It might not even be any of these three. Judgment time. Ikoma of course being a good Wota says that she wouldn’t mind if she did not get the present and Higuchi of course really want it for she means serious business people! As for Sakurai, her lackstur present not to mention the hurt Wakatsuki-sama looking right straight into her face from behind Nanase’s shoulder all lined up like some kind of eclipse happening doesn’t board well.

Amazingly, or sadly, or interesting, depending on what way you look at it, Ikoma is the one that gets Nanase’s present.

Now I am happy for her but it is no surprise that Higuchi really deserved to get Nanase’s affectionate present this time, am I right? Also I personally was hoping from the beginning (before I saw Higuchi’s strong love) that she would give her present to neither of these three but you know, Kazumi….I guess they are just good friends. But I will have to wait for Kazumi’s turn to seal that away.

Poor Higuchi though, she was in tears. It definitely stings like a rejection even if they try to say it is not!

Now then, as for Nanase’s incomprehensible love confession towards Ikoma-kun, she thanks her for always showering her with words that girls love to hear like ‘cute’ and tells her to keep on the good work in making Nogizaka more sanctioned. As for the present, it was a set of pyjamas, which really looked good. Probably the most fashionable private clothes Ikoma will ever own LOL

But that’s not the best part. Nanase-sensei brought two pairs, one for herself too but not just another pair, two MATCHING pairs so they could match clothes! That Nanase wanting to match clothes with someone! Fashionable people hate that the most and yet, And where are they planning on wearing them together? A sleep over!?!

Untitled-3

Anyway, Ikoma was feeling like a god when she heard that! That lucky little…And not only are they the same design but they also the very same colour! Damn, Ikoma, you just went and got the best present of the night, so far anyway…

Ship get?

Moving on, it’s Kawamura, the virgin ranker and she picks Kazumi as the recipient of her affections. She got Kazumi fashionable clothes so she could make the world see Kazumi’s stylish side and she also loves Kazumi’s face too. I was hoping she would say she loves her cool side as well since Kazumi is kind of talented, well, really talented but alas. Maybe someone else will point that out? I have a feeling her, Wakatsuki-sama and Nanase are the most popular girls so maybe…

But things are not to be for Kazumi chooses another virgin senbatsu to give her present to in Maaya. I guess Kazumi and Nanase are really just great pals. Too bad, I was hoping for something more. Then again, maybe they are involved already and did not want to come out on TV or saw no reason to exchange gifts now when they will be exchanging chocolate in bed mouth to mouth like adults do Tehehe…As for what Kazumi got Maaya, it was body-stockings LOL. No wonder she got the boot! That’s right, Maaya had someone else in mind when she got a Valentine’s Day present together.

The recipient, poor Hina (that is Higuchi), who got rejected by Nanase. I wonder how she actually felt then. Was she really happy or did the despair she felt over Nanase’s rejection simply too great to be overcome with Maaya’s love?

But really, how many people truly forget about their first loves? Really?

As for her confession, “It was painful knowing that you loved Naachan (Nanase) so much that you would cry for her but pls, I am prepared to be your beta if it is what it takes.” Maaya loves Higuchi because she is a gentle person and I can tell just from looking at her really.

And Higuchi says that she was also troubled choosing between the two for it looks like she likes Maaya as well but if it came to Honmei Choco (roughly translated to – True Feelings Chocolate), Nanase would be Honmei and Maaya the choco. In other words, her true feelings belongs to Nanase, and Maaya can have all the chocolates she wants. LOL

Love, it’s SRS business!

And that seals the week’s episode. You know I cannot wait for Monday to come around again already! For it looks like there is going to be even more awesomeness this time btn Miona-chan, Manatsu-senpai and Ikoma-kun!

Seriously, forget the rivalry, Nogizaka has already won the war in my book with all these awesome TV episodes they dish out not once but twice a week! At the very least they have stolen this past week. Nemousu ep04 was kind of lacking except for that awesome Miichan/Nana scene and really, nothing could have beaten girls exchanging gifts on Valentine’s, well, perhaps if there was more chocolates and less inedible gifts involved?

Yeah, just awesome, Nogizaka is.

Anyway, as for now, here is how the relationship chart stands for our senbatsu members, well, the eight of them any way…

Poor Wakatsuki-sama though >.< Even if Sakurai said she loved her too, it still hurt for her efforts and resolve to say what she wouldn’t normally say in front of so many people, only to get rejected. Well, it wasn’t a rejection per say as like I said, Sakurai loves Wakatsuki-sama too but still, it had to hurt! And them Bananaman will never let her live it down too!

Still, they were too good! Awesome Nogi episode is awesome. Just wish we had some Miona/Ikoma-kun in there too even though from the look of things, that is very unlikely. Oh well, at least I got this from the last episode…

mionarina
YEAH~

Any way, caps…

  1. My favorite nogizaka46 ship is Kazumi and Nanase. (T.T) Why must it be so heartbreaking, I will go down with this ship. For some reason, I have an impression of Wakatsuki and Sakurai as a player.

  2. Jeez, Reika gets a position that every guy would want to be in!! She gets Yumi to act all girly!! I mean seriously after all that Reika said no? How does that compute, I mean even all the other members there acted as though this was a given when Yumi called out Reika!!!

    Luckily Naachan knew what should of gone down and refused Reika’s effections, like she was telling Reika where here heart should truly be going, though why did Naachan refuse poor Higuchi, man girl actually got her heart broken on TV!!

    love can be a cruel mistress…….

  3. I’ve been catching up with Nogizaka46 stuff mostly the shows. What I’m really curious about is this whole Kazumin/Nanase thing and I saw others commenting how they like them together too. I’ve seen them sitting beside each other often and they got along together nicely, not to mention looked good together…but what made people ship them really? I see the obviousness of Waka-sama/Reika and Ikoma/Wifes but I’m still oblivious to Kazumin/Nanase other than being great friends…is there any defining moment for them?

    Anyway, sorry I’m rambling. I wanted to say I like your sense of humor so reading this is really fun. I do hope you write the part 2 as well because it’s just as interesting as this one. Thanks!

    • It has to do with beginnings. In the beginning these two were just so close and in fact I think were shipped earlier than any other couple (yes, even Yumi/Reika) But then things just started diluting. Now all they do it good friends king of thing, they are even rarely see together much these days.

      Then there is the outside catalysts like Ikoma-kun practically worshipping the ground Nanase walking on (in other words, shippable!) which led to the valentines thing and we know how that went!

      Any way the answer is that when they were closer back in the day, there was no other close members so it was inevitable to ship them. Now though I too even no longer ship them that much. In fact I ship Ikoma/Nanase ir Kazumi and one of the comedians of the 46G more than I do these two! There is just more members more valid to ship than these two that’s why…

      And finally, I say it all the time but don’t worry about rumblings. I love my comments long way more than I like them short so rumble away ^^

  4. I think maybe because at the beginning Nanase is pretty awkward with others and Kazumin being all around amajing probably didn’t seem like an intimidating presence so they got along nicely, she looked pretty relaxed with her. But I feel like Kazumin seemed to be more at the back nowadays although her humor in variety helps but in single/PV she seemed to get thrown back (or is it just me?) as opposed to Nanase so there’s not much of screen time for them anymore.

    Yeah, Ikoma was totally fangirling over Nanase and it was pretty cute. Seeing idol fangirling over another idol is nice, it feels like I’m not the only one getting crazy lol

    But in Nogiroom Nanase and Kazumin wear matching pajamas (which was cute because Captain and Maiyan wear different pajamas) albeit in different colors. I wonder what does that say about Nanase’s valentine gift to Ikoma? It makes me think probably Nanase likes to have matching stuff with the members as a symbol of their closeness or maybe that was all the staff doing…either way it’s nice to see them together side by side again.

    Kazumin and one of the comedians? Such as? Speaking of ship, I noticed that PV-wise the management kinda favors the Wakatsuki/Nanase pair. Oto ga Denai Guitar, Tsuki no Ookisa, and of course the most obvious Mukuchi na Lion with a subtext of love triangle with Reika there. Not that I’m complaining coz I like it too, I just wonder why pick them over and over? Then again, with Nogi46 there are so many possibilities of pairing because the members are simply great, it’s hard to have just an OTP. Also in that Nogibingo ep where the 2nd gen on a mission to become closer to 1st gen, the Nagashima/Hori part where Hori kissed Nagashima made me think, “Now, that’s a nice crack pair there” XD (Nagashima seriously is a kind an easy going person).
