I Love This Song!

Yukirin has gone through more partners almost as much as Batman has his side-kicks!

Yes, I just implanted that thought in your head and it will never go away, not now, not forever! And as such it both saddens and makes me happy! I just hope she is not going to turn into Batfleck at the beginning of BvS in 10 years (get it?)!

This post though is about LOD performances with two particular partners in Milky and OgiYuka! I have wanted to write about that Saturday Night unit of Yukirin and Milky’s for a while but I totally forgot about it! Then NGT48’s NIII 3rd Stage hit and the memories came flooding right back!

But first, let me talk about the title and then we shall move on! Way back in the day (around 2010s), it was usually Rena that was the default partner to Yukirin, most especially in MVs! This of course oiled down outside that into the Majisuka Gakuen show, Shuunkan AKB and Mechaike shows and then some Concerts. Those two had a similar vibe that Yukirin has with all the mentioned girls, despite each girl being similar to her in a different way. For Rena it was more about their outer personalities. Also there is that fact that they were the same age! Seeing their age next to their names next to each other was satisfying to say the least!

Then there is this mysterious connection between her and Kojiharu! Mysterious because no one knows exactly what it is only simply boiling it down to their sexisness (These two have had to go head to head in the AKB Kouhaku more than once) but it goes much deeper than that. On the surface they are so polar they negate one another. Kojiharu’s graduation concert was full of this hilarity! And yet when you put them together they fit, if you demagnetized the pieces first of course! We have seen their combi enough times both in MVs and in concerts too.

Then there is Milky! She is perhaps easier to connect with Yukirin as they are both very known for being the Fish Masters. On Yukirin’s side it will only be old school fans that know this part of her side because she was basically the person that invented the term ‘Kami Taiyou’. She was the first Handshake Queen, proving that there is power in that event when she became the person that broke the Kami 7 wall and blew it into oblivion (was changed to Kami 8 soon after) when she too the 3rd position right next to Acchan and Yuuko because of the fans she garnered in Handshakes!

Fans, even none fans now of course know it was not a gimmick! She is always like that! TV shows, Theatres, Stages, Radio! She is always full of life! Which I think is the reason that she is no longer referred to as much as the Fishing Queen. Milky and Daasu are the prefect description of that term. And so Milky is similar to Yukirin in that way. This has also proven to be a reason to put them together!

The first time they were paired together was during Managu (Manatsu no Sounds Good) MV where the Elite were paired with the so-called Next gen (when is this next exactly?). Then Yukirin went to NMB Team N and then Milky came to AKB Team B and things escalated from there. Despite being hated by the Osaka fans back then and having been there for a short time, she got a new duet with Milky, a sexy new duet, where we first got to see her release the inner beast, with her grabbing Milky’s assets (And probably thinking of them before going to bed the following nights *wink*) in Heart no Dokusen*.

But all these girls are gone now! The obvious choice , always the first choice, Waifu Mayuyu (*cries some more*) is also leaving! But the Queen is still here and she still needs that partner to share her brilliance with!

Enter NGT48’s Ogino Yuka!

Before even things were made public to us in this decision, gears were already turning! Nay, even before this time the gears were already in motion! We go all the way back to even OgiYuka and Gatanee were official NGT members! I am of course talking about those two’s Baito Days where they worked for, not were members of, AKB48.

These two already met back then! It was after then, it was because of then, when the members helped Mayuyu get Yukirin a present (already tastes like chocolate in here) that Yukirin got to meet these girls and it was in meeting them then that she and Kitarie chose them as the starting members of NGT48.

Then skip forward and before the miracle of SSK2017 even happened, fate was already on the move! Yukirin and OgiYuka were already decided to be partners in the 3rd Stage of NGT48. The opening performance of which I have taken these caps from!

Then came the SSK where the impossible happened, once again! Now that I think about it, almost all of these partnerships have produced a kind of miracle! With Kojiharu Yukirin had her first Center position. While Yukirin was slaying Kamis in SSK, Rena was slaying Kamis in Majisuka Gakuen as Gekikara! And then here comes OgiYuka!

OgiYuka who came out of no where and not only made it into Senbatsu but she took, of all the positions, she took Yukirin’s previous position in SSK!!! Yukirin who had decided this time to not participate! Only to find out merely days later that these very two people are actually in the same unit in the new Stage?!!!

I was all kinds of shook that I do not even remotely blame the people who shouted of conspiracies because this was just so far out field it was abnormal! To me though things were not as drastic, as I have seen my Queen do some impressive things already! All I got was enlightenment! The heart-felt hugs during the Showroom of the SSK made more sense when I saw the two in their new song ‘Zankoku na Ame’!

Yukirin (And Kitarie) already mean so much to OgiYuka and Gatanee! Speaking of Gatanee, sometimes I even think of Gatanee sometimes I even think of Yukirin as her ‘pot of gold’. If you remember a certain NGT Stage where they played a game and whoever Yukirin picked from the random names would be the Center of Flying Get, Yukirin picked Gatanee’s name! Gatanee was Center because of Yukirin! And if you look here in SSK, as we know unlike NMB, here Yukirin has quite a fanbase in NGT so had she taken part in SSK, there is no doubt there would have been a rally to drive someone to the top and between the two the one with the most chance would have been Yukirin!

So, even if unintentional or otherwise, Yukirin not participating saw to OgiYuka breaking all kinds of logical laws! And before now I had never even entertained the thought that these two would be compatible in any way! But then I saw the performance. And I was crying!

Yukirin is like ‘The Bridge between the People’! With Kojiharu and Miichan especially, she broke the boundaries of Gens. With Rena, Milky and OgiYuka, the bridged the Families of 48! With OgiYuka, Moechan, Okappa-chan, the Kouhai can mix better with the Elite Senpai. And most especially with Mayuyu, she showed that same-gens don’t have to come down to rivalry! We see the fruits of this most clearly with NGT!

And it is at this very moment that I realise I have lost the point of this post! Oh well, I have a lot of caps for you all to chew on after the jump in regards to Milky and OgiYuka’s LOD partnership and I will conclude that I am all up for OgiYuka taking over as the official partner to Yukirin! Before this new Stage my best option was Yuihan but that thread seems almost pale in comparison! I don’t know what happened in that performance but something just clicked with me! Maybe some one will see it after seeing the pics?

Anyway, yeah, see ya around…

Never Forget…

UZA

I’m just finding it funny that everyone is all over Keyakizaka now because they are doing all these cool MVs and I a over here like, where were you when the AKB48 Fall single was the Cool one?

All seem to have forgotten that it was these cool singles that started the Million trend! Well, Yasusu remembers which is why he dedicated those types of songs to Keyakizaka. Everyone is all drooling thinking KKZ is the best thing since sliced bread meanwhile Yasusu is laughing his way to the bank!

Anyway, forever promoting UZA! That is one of the few songs that never left my On the Go playlist. Add in that kick ass choreo and well. And now that I can post these vids, maybe I should do more dance vids of the 48 group. Kazeifu, River, BEGINNER, BwT etc need some more love too. Too bad there is like, only 1 full performance of BwT and no Dance Ver. I want so bad to make a vid about it! I guess I have to wait for the Next PV BD Collection.

Mirurun Fans…Rejoice!

Because you no longer need to fantasize!

For, this week’s Manabukun just gave us what Mirurun’s…um…sighs of happiness(?) sound like!

I have listened to enough of them to know for sure, 200%, that this is how she would totally sound like when, you know…

I still can’t believe my ears. Looks like I found my ring tone!

Baiting me w/ yuri n kewlaid NMB? Rly?

Whew! Now that I have reserved my Amazon pre-order of this single…

How dare thee NMB!?! You think you can just flaunt yuri and the good old cool PVs in my face and I will be back to buying your singles?! Well, you are right in thinking that! I have not bought anything from NMB since Don’t Look Back (because of Yukirin) and nothing before that since Maachun left (and incidentally breaking up my by then 2nd favourite ship – Sayacchu).

And now with more than half the 1st gen gone and going, I thought there would never come a day when I buy another NMB single but lo and behold – They go and release a monster and I love my monster singles! Not only is the A-side cool as all hell bringing back that NMB of old and momentarily back, they go and add in two yurific b-sides in there for that double-tap move! Like, I am not made of stone! The most surely got me with the two yuri vids, especially that Kinoshita one (Holy molly Kinoshita is centering!!?!) but then they went and made the A side one to die for! I love my cool singles as you know. My tope 10 of the whole 48 G consists mostly of the cool songs (Beginner, Uza, Kazefu, Virginity, J_19, KuroShoujo, Two Years Later, etc) so you know my resistance in this matter was as good as the Borg would say – futile!

First off, what’s up with that Kinoshita PV?! Who is that girl?!! I have been out of NMB for a while now that I do not even know if she is a member or not! Is she a member? If she is, who is she? tell me you all NMB royals out there! Strangely enough my first thought was that she was not a member and with that my mind went into overdrive coming up with strange ideas like her being Ex-Nogizaka Itou Nene! Oh come on, she looks like her, don’t she?

And damn that Kinoshita! She looks so in love with that girl that the other delusions was that she was her real life girl-friend and that she is actually putting her into the MV and we are here clueless not knowing nothing! Dear Lord if it is actually Kinoshita’s GF Imma gonna…And how cool does Kinoshita look in that wool jacket?! How cool the members with her are, like did you think Moka could be cool?! I most certainly did not. Now I know that any NMB member is capable of being cool!

Okay, maybe not Azusa but hey, they need some cute in there, amirite!

Then there is that Team M b-side! Barring my confusion wondering when the hell did Uuka, Nagisa and Akarin become Team M members when I soon found out that there was a shuffle that happened (understandably since many members are leaving), I have a feeling I am gonna have a blast feeding my delusions of who is with whom when the full PV gets here. For example there seems to be a chaotic threesome going on between Nagisa, Akarin and Mirurun, then there is the S&M pair with Renapyon and we have the cutesly Uuka and Chihii!

And finally let’s not forget that lovely cool A side that is an all out dance battle themed PV! Like, how cooler can they get than that! And did I spy some gayness between Saepi and Reinyan, Jo-chan and Riripo in there too?! Is every other PV gay in here?! Give me my DVDs right now Japan?!!!

Congrats NMB, you have managed to gran be back (temporarily, okay? Temporarily!) with this 16th ‘Boku igai no dare ka’ single! Take all my money for all versions of the single, just this one more time, okay?! This is the last time!!

Anyway, more caps and the short versions after the jump…

Talk about bringing a gun to a knife fight!

akbku

Having already sobered from the high that is the sheer fact that we have the Kagoshimai facing off as the captains of Red and White teams in AKB48’s 6th Kouhaku Utagassen, I finally got the mind to sit down and look through the line-up and man…Talk about unequal ground! Things get even worse when you see the whole listing of the full members! Like, are you even serious Bruh?!

From talent to star-power Red Team has White beat in all regards. Dancers, singers, Kamis, Aces…Jesus Red team, what even?! There is no way that White team is going to win this without some strings being pulled!

Starting from the top, look at those captains!! Red has two of the most experienced ‘organisers’ in the group, one with her own solo tours (Yukirin) and the other with a whole group (Sasshi) and both a super nerds when it comes to Idols so like…I don’t even…. And let’s not forget the instrumentalists in Nao, who is backed-up by Sayanee, Rion and Aoi. Meanwhile don’t get me started on the vocals (Miyu, Erina, Sayanee, Yukirin) and dancing skills (Yokoyama Yui, Tano, Yuria, Jurina, etc, etc…!

Oh man, this is going to be some brutal experience!

Thank the Lord that I am mostly going into this for the Kagoshima combi. Yeah yeah, I know they are supposed to be competing but hey, at least finally AKS is recognising their duel value so this is a cause for flipping out in happiness!!!

What are the odds that instead of singing different songs like the captains that have come before, they instead both sing the same song and battle it out dance floor style? I mean Sakura VS Yukirin in a music performance battle is pure madness but if they were to perform the same song while doing the thing, al else is forgotten!

Alright, that is it. If you want the full listing, go to Stage48. They got you covered…
