I’ve wanted to write something, but… nothing’s really happened as of late. Usually when I think that, something exciting happens. Like a bombshell graduation announcement or a scandal. Well, let’s hope not.
Some things that have crossed my mind:
-Akagumi and Shirogami PV releases out:
Akagumi: Boku ga mou sukoshi daitan nara (If I was more daring)
I really like dorky Milky but apparently everyone feels the need to give her a makeover before confession. In some respects I think dorky Milky looks like Kimoshita.
They’re also fronting 3 of their top 5 in Maachun, Nana, and Milky. Nana’s been Shirogumi all this time so it surprised me. She had nice legs in Doryoku no Shizuku.
The video has shades of Namida Surprise with some silliness thrown in. Mainly the curling part with the office chair.
Shirogumi: Saigo no Catharsis (The last Catharsis)
This was… okay, I guess.
It feels like a lipstick commercial. I was disappointed because the title sounds like it’d be some awesome badass track, but… a lipstick commercial?
Also that one old clumsy guy from the drama BOSS is in there. Except this time he’s a scientist. And I guess he doesn’t have KenKoba around to touch his butt. I think it’s funny how they made him gay in that show when he’s around Toda Erika and later, Narumi Riko. Heh.
I guess one cool part about this video is Murakami gets some good exposure. I wonder if she’s moving up as indicated by her handshake line being 6/9?
I think Jou is still bursting with potential. It’ll be interesting to see where she is 2 years later.
-NMB 3rd gen debut
I wish I could derive some sort of meaning from this, but I dunno. Junjou U-19 looks great as always, but it doesn’t appear that they used their own voices. And the lip synch issue.
I guess you can say their outfits look cool.
-A handshake event
Apparently they wrapped up an all AKS handshake event recently. There’s some dumb videos, like say, the KichiKichi combo or the Mirurun and Warukii combo. Or hey, there’s even pictures of NMB with AKB, like Ripopo with Umechan.
I always wonder what it would be like to go to one. I dunno if I’d be nervous because I’m meeting a star, creeped out by myself because I’m going to see teenage girls and paying for it, or mad because I’m spending so much money for 2 minutes of someone’s time.
