I'm glad the classy girls group meme is over, they weren't different from akb after all, except for hkt who's having members with piano albums, brass band and talent stuff, no one will top that.
I'll stop with the akbabies with this one.
I'll also stop with the shitty puns here.
I seriously thought this was Sayanee when I watched the new suicide squad trailer.
Sayanee would never be in a shit movie like that.
Katana is played by this woman
AKB is so shit now. Why even follow when you have Nogizaka with better music and now even better gravure.
I'm used to this actress who plays as Katana. She's coming back in Arrow.
She was also in the movie Wolverine
There are a lot more of content for akb than nogi, I used to be a nogi fan but it's hard to keep up to date, they barely have events or tv shows, doko cancelled which was their best show and the music isn't that good lately, nogi is for casuals.
Does anyone have this with sound?
I only follow good groups.
>it's hard to keep up to date
>they barely have events or tv shows
As usual the people who bash Nogis are the newfags who don't know shit.
Here's a list of all their on-going regular shows:
開運音楽堂 (Eto, others)
Rの法則 (Hori, Ashu, others)
生のアイドルが好き (Ringo, Kana, others)
ソニレコ！暇つぶしTV (Himetan, Noujo)
らじらー！サンデー (Himetan, others)
SCHOOL OF LOCK! (Nanamin)
And this is just a list of all the current, regular shows (almost all of them are weekly). There are a ton of others shows where Nogis are often guests.
The KKK show is the next big thing. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good new idol show.
She had a big handicap from what people usually get.
Usually he blocks like 95% of the times or something
No no, that's for you to tell me. You're claiming that she looks like a hooker so you must already know who it is.
As for the gravure pig label, I dare say that I don't look at much more than you do and I certainly don't say the things that you did last thread in regards to it.
I barely got into Nogi.
Ima, Hanashitai ga dareka ga iru is the very first song I heard from them.
I love that MV.
And I just recently watched their latest documentary. I was posting screenshots a couple threads ago as I was watching it. Thanks to someone who mentioned that the documentary was already subbed.
I may not know what exactly I am talking about since I don't follow Nogi, but I wasn't wrong. That's the major reason I never bothered in the first place.
New people would be fine with just variety.
I wonder how sexually frustated meru right now considering she no longer has chiizu
he has lied about leaving many times before, it's just a part of character. just like his streaming account had nanase's name on it, before he "oshihened" and turned a 2ch meme member into his attention whoring gimmick.
I think you mean "slightly better".
Nogizaka were just a bit too polished when they went on Nogidoko, and that made the early episodes just a bit blander than KeyaKake. Early Nogidoko was an idol show, and that's that - very straightforward, no big surprises and its main strong point over KeyaKake being its guests.
KKK's members are a lot more inexperienced and not to mention a lot stranger, so instead of the slightly worked-over idol show that Nogidoko was (the girls were so bland at times that the guests were the funniest parts), KeyaKake is at the very least novel.
It's smack in the middle of the members' learning experiences, meaning that you see a lot of things that Nogizaka were too polished and experienced in variety to put in at the time, and that's mostly a good thing - since the members don't know how to act in variety, you do get things like Rika's dubious silences, but also Yone's and Fuyuka's reactions to the haunted house, Uemura's failures at everything and all of Oda Nana.
KeyaKake is unorthodox, at least. It's not really Nogidoko's unrivaled better version, especially not if you don't like odd silences and bullying (Tsuchida is worse than Ariyoshi by miles), but at least for me it's far more interesting.
We've gone over this before. Only Harada Mayu has actually scandaled, as the romance ban applies to after the final audition only. It's out of concern for fan relations and workload, not because every member has to be a virgin (and come on, most relationships at that age don't end up involving sex in the end anyway). The group is getting a lot of attention simply because it's new, and that means that people are digging up old purikura photos and interpreting them as they like.
Let's assume for a moment that it's still a "scandal" that an idol has dared to actually have a real relationship with someone else before instead of depriving herself of romantic closeness during the most important period of her youth simply because of the faint chance that she might become an idol and "need" to "save" herself for a bunch of sweaty Western Danny Choo-tier autists.
Let's assume for a moment that I am even the slightest bit invested in my oshi's romantic business (which I am not - I have no romantic interest in any of my oshimen, as that's irrelevant to their growth, stalkerish and most importantly just plain rude and insulting to them, especially considering that I know I'll never even see them for longer than a handshake or a stage).
Then, pray tell, what am I losing by the fact that my oshi is not a virgin? Please bring in evidence if you're going to come with such ridiculous ideas (which, should I add, are more "cuck" than anything I'm doing) as "w- well, your oshi having had the right to live her life means that she's now a black-hearted whore, but if I fucked twenty women I would be an alpha". I have no romantic interests in my oshi, and if she could theoretically keep her focus on her fans and her work while having a boyfriend, I would even fucking cheer her on. I do not consider myself to hold anything even approaching the role of a boyfriend or romantic possibility for my oshimen, and the very idea makes me nauseous. It's possessive, disrespectful and goes counter to the very most basic ideas behind the idol group concept by treating the member as an object of your desire that has to conform to what you want instead of an aspiring artist that you're supporting through your loyalty and encouragement (and, let's not shit around, purchases) while she deigns to stay in the group and lend her fans support. It's a non-sexual, non-romantic thing at the core.
Why should I care that my oshi is not a virgin? Christ, as long as she treats her fans well, tends to her job and is a nice person, she could have a checklist of sex friends as long as the Declaration of Independence for as much as I fucking care. I don't think anyone would be able to, and that's why I follow the romance ban in practice, but if it could be pulled off, who am I to tell my oshi that she can't live her life because I (someone who supposedly respects and supports her) get jealous at the idea that she isn't going to throw away some of the potentially most important and pleasant experiences of her life for a skinny Western neckbeard?
And my oshi isn't even Uemura. I find her annoying at worst and slightly entertaining at best.
Even if you shitpost, you're still contributing anyhow but don't even think to the slightest that I think so highly of you in any way. You don't have anything redeeming that would make me thought so.
yeah but what song is this?
Alright, there we have the opposition's argument.
Feel free to laugh, maybe even bring some popcorn to eat while trying to figure out how someone could ever think "because I say so, hurr you're a cuck, I understand Japanese culture better than the Japanese" could ever be anything resembling a proper argument.
It's a fun song
That's a problem everywhere, wouldn't you say?
That's just a very weak banter for someone like sasshi
Could be, but I imagine it's worse here because people can say whatever the hell they like as much as they feel like it. Then there's the shroud of anonymity allowing people to samefag and make their opinion seem like it holds more weight. Afaik there is no banter allowed on s48.
Anyone following Nemousu episodes here? Was wondering what are your top episodes lately? The last good episode for me was that kyudo episode where Annin was being moody so I reckon I have a lot of catching up to do.
Another problem I've noticed is that we have so many people here who don't speak Japanese, don't know much about some of the groups, or both. They've grown used to taking other people's word for it when it comes to idols because they simply don't know any better, and hop on board with that they perceive to be the strongest opinion in order to mask their own ignorance.
When I start to make dumb typos I know it's time for bed. Night lads.
The socially acceptable.
Of course there is no banter allowed in s48, it's a forum ffs. The mods don't want to handle with that shit so some sense of "democracy" had to be established, just like any other forums.
>AKBINGO's fortune-telling says Prr will have a shitty year
>Maru Maru's fortune-telling says Prr will have a great year
These hacks don't even bother to coordinate their bullshitting. The two shows aired one after the other on the same day too.
Why does Takamina save everything?
ghostery - less of an arse-ache than chrome - if i absolutely have to use a mobile device.
This is quite unrelated, but I was checking out Ikoma's PB last week and decided to look at other works with the same photographer when I found this: http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4781609740/ Schoolgirl Complex 3
The images were enough to sway me to order, and I just received it now. Been ages since I was this giddy with excitement just flipping through pictures. So very worth it.
Thank you Ikoma. Not sure if I'll buy your PB, but I'm glad you're getting one.
seeing that in ikuchan's 2ch thread was somewhat funny, then i saw some team 8 shit posting the exact same pictures the spammer posts here and that really annoyed me. even there they just can't stop trying to force those irrelevant kids anywhere they can.
All girls should not be having sex before marriage. These teenage years of theirs aren't meant to be spent sleeping around with a laundry list of people, disgusting as that is, if they wanted to do that there are millions of other jobs they can do besides idolling.
>but if I fucked 20 women I would be alpha
I like how you put words into his mouth implying the same was acceptable for men, when nothing of the sort was implied or said. you're about as dishonest as you can get and will result to lying to try and make your feeble point. good day
its because "good" and "bad" are two sides of the same coin. if yoh know about symbolism you know the same symbol can have contrary meanings. take the snake for example, which was evil and satan in the bible and many other fables, but at the same time is on te cadeucus staff representing healing and good times
her 2015 was shitty in the sense that her movie flopped, her photobook flopped and her rank in ssk decreased, but it was a great year because she got pushed anyway, got a new tv show, raked in some nice money from all kinds of sources and got away with her shitty attitude while fans just kept throwing money at the wall she had at the handshake events.
What a coincidence that we posted babbies pic a few hours ago
>decide to do some research on ikuta's teeth
>some guy already has a website to keep track of this
What the fuck has gotten into this thread?
Ikuta releases a pb and every other post begins by bragging about getting off on it. All of you need to keep that shit to yourselves or you're seriously no better than those SEA and gravure pigs you constantly bitch about.
Idols should not be sexualized, period.
Getting a photobook is nothing new, just another step in an idol's career. Ikuta's popular so she gets one. When signing the contract, Ikuta herself has no control whatsoever regarding the contents of the book. To anyone who likes Ikuta, you should be proud that she's good enough as an entertainer to have one. My oshi isn't popular enough and will never get her own solo pb.
Thanks anon, I love her too.
Picked last, but first draft to rank in sousenkyo!
Japanese women don't hit their primes till their late 30's.
>calls people casual
>gives the answer anyway
Any anon here ever been to one of the stadium concerts? They look really
Not bad. I always find multilingual gals more attractive. Except Hilary of course.
>Translation - anan Interview / Maiyan’s Part
>“My female fans have become a big encouragement to me. This year, I will turn 24, I want to have a sexy image that can appeal to girls too. I yearn to be like Ishihara Satomi-san and Dan Mitsu-san, who can combine both cuteness and sex appeal.”
Good luck with that.
You only get 1/4 of a poster for buying Ikuchon's photobook.
>Nazis employing Jewish tactics
Been meaning to download this ever since I got a new phone for Xmas. But after spending numerous minutes trying to figure out what to do (e.g change members, the "gacha" machine) I'm stumped. Is there a guide out there?
show me. I never said you didn't find her pretty, I just called you so fat you can't imagine yourself being with her. you omitted that part and went straight to you finding nothing sexual about her, which is just describing the same effect. you also aren't saying how much you weigh. so explain to me how it's different, tubby?
Sashikita is a convoluted and expensive form of corporate mobbing on Kitarie to remind her how inadequate she is compared to Sasshi
Also just let me say that I love it when idols put things on their head.
Can you grace me with a download/play link?
I don't want to ever go on Stage48 again, and it's easier to just have it copy-pasted than trying to reverse-Google a screenshot or go through 48pedia.
Like >>14645368 said they did a renewal thing turning it into Under Construction (Kojichuu). It's the same MCs and staff behind it. It's been boring most of the time sadly, but has picked up lately.
Easily and thoroughly rejected.
Do go now by yourself, please.
Cut me a break. I hate using full line breaks - it's a habit I got from writing. I'd rather not post than inflate it into a chopped-up easy-read mess that looks like it was written by a fifteen-year-old special-school student.
The point of slang is that it evolves naturally. You can't really screw up slang as much as you can put out a new variation (accidentally or not) that may or may not catch on.
You're right in that it's nonstandard, though, but I've heard it used enough by other people that it's stuck.
There's a few of us here but most just lurk I guess.
My PB copy was shipped.
If my 2nd graphics card is sent too this could be a great day.
my consolation when she graduated was that yuria was still
around, then she gets transferred to akb. it's like management gave up on ske.
I'm bilingual. Native English speaker in a non-English-speaking country. I've grown up with both languages.
That only widens the scope, though - from about five countries to about two hundred.
their cuties are also growing up so fast. why can't they stay small forever?
Such is life. Everything that is beautiful eventually withers, all good things come to an end, etc...
Also Akiyoshi is underrated.
Idols are great in that regard that fresh members are constantly arriving.
