I’ve been trying to write another one of those NMB spotlights, but it’s really tedious when you want to include video clips and subtitle them. It’s like, it’s in wmv, but you have to convert it into avi, but sometimes you have to convert into mp4 first, and… arggggh.
I should be able to get it done this weekend.
Anyway, the latest program on NMB48’s channel features an interesting cast.
Not only is Emichi appearing alongside studs like Milky and Keicchi, she’s also the lead of this segment. Her wish was to ride horses or something because she really likes horses, Milky wants to play little baby chickens, and Keicchi wants to play with lizards. Uh, you do that…
If there’s anyone who I always switch sides on, it’s Milky. When I see her perform, sometimes her lip-synching is just terrible and it seems like all she wants to do is look cute. Her singing ability is questionable and nasally. On Geinin 2 she seemed to fail almost all of her jokes but got away with because she was cute (or wasn’t as bad as Nana).
But then sometimes she shows this really passionate side of her. Like that translated post, where she wants to bring NMB to be competitive. I’m almost certain her work ethic is second-to-none, and you wouldn’t expect someone like her to be able to pull off something like UZA with World Order, but she does it. When she’s on variety, she’s unrelenting. If you look past the cuteness and observe her a little more closely, you can see her absolutely dedicated to steering topics and jokes to the way she wants. And that Milky is awesome.
So, our lovely trio takes a trip to the farm.
The talk inside the car was actually pretty interesting. You get to see how Milky and Keicchi interact with Emichi, and it’s not very often you see that (which is kinda sad, but that’s another story).
I probably wrote about it before but I’m glad that Emichi and NMB in general is taking full advantage of her push and luck from Janken. You look at Harukyan and Uchida Mayumi and they weren’t really able to take the Janken single anywhere, but Emichi is getting a huge push and helping to carry B2.
I also really like her infectious cheery demeanor. I wish I could be that happy-looking all the time!
Another interesting thing that came out of the van conversation was that Emichi wants to become an actress. I mean, a lot of people want to be actresses, but one thing that surprised me was that she participated in a musical before. There may be hope for her yet!
I do remember the topic of acting coming up once in a discussion on S48. It is kinda sad that the only drama acting experience was Keicchi in Poison, a late late night Kansai drama, and now Nana in another late late night Kansai drama.
Nothing really happens at the farm in this episode, except for constant outpouring of KAWAII by all the girls.
The next episode seems to have Milky playing with the chicks, Emichi riding horses, and Miru showing up for some reason.
