What if I just bought Paruru a Lamborghini?
I didn't choose the warm life.
Koishichan will finally make it into SKE senbatsu this year. After all, Rean herself was grooming her, so she must be a keeper.
Yesterday I dreamt about being in a classroom setting with Paru as my partner, demonstrating self defence to other people in the class. I had the same exact dream last week. Like everything that I could remember was exactly the same. Such a worthless dream and I keep waking up when she punches me in the stomach. It's so shitty. I hope I never dream about Idols again.
>I hope I never dream about idols again.
Literally dreamed last week Kojiharu is a psychiatrist and consulting me about my depression. She even wasn't dressed up as a slutty doctor or something.
Just a straight up conversation about my depression, that's all.
yamada > okada > fujita > owada
But Owada's not that bad really. If she's "worst Nana" it's only because the others are too good.
That looks really calming. Bit jealous.
How do they decide which uniform variant they get?
A magical smile.
Sure Kawaei has been fucked by one of these ikemens.
Please don't. It is absolutely vital that my oshi outlive me.
Look at Tegoshi's face, that's the face of a person who has fucked an Idol.
Poor anon. Anything we can do to cheer you up?
I really like her arms for some reason.
Guys (and gals), I'm not that knowledgeable on 48 and 46, so I was wondering... Why exactly was Ikoma chosen to be a kennin? I'm not hating -I like her afterall. I was just wondering if there was a specific reason?
You can tell they are real friends because they're in the same photo.
Have you pre-ordered it yet?
>10 of 12 posters here have never even heard of any of those webms
>you must pick one but only from this group
tomo is a plastic monster, sae is out of bounds and miichan is the worst. i guess it's the chinese then.
>laughing as her half-sister lies dying in a hospital
>caring about singles
There are more important matters to be concerned with.
They should've called the book A** Addiction, because I've developed one for her a** already. I admit it was kind of a guilty pleasure at first, back in 2010-11, now it snowballed and I'm making a folder collecting all of her a** shots in a chronological order so I can see how far she developed through the years. It's hard to find the right month order for the early shots, though.
As someone who just got into AKB yesterday I can honestly say the orange girl on the right is cute. The center is meh 3/10 and the blue one beside her shouldn't be an idol. The white and purple one, I think that's Mayuyu, is kind of cute too.
Those people were more neo-luddites than anything.
Like what? Sakura is actually a sweet and dorky girl. People are hating on her because their oshis will never be important like her. It's not her fault that she's prettier than most members too. I guess she is the perfect idol and everyone here is hating on that.
>Could be different in Japan of course.
She's still liked over there as well.
So much fear.
There are many girls in AKB prettier than Sakura. Not many in senbatsu, granted, but they're there. Also many who are better in other ways.
Face it: Sakura is hated because she has achieved a lot of things your oshi has never done.
She is the youngest member to rank in Kami 7.
She is centering the most important single to date.
She is outselling your oshi in HS.
She is a pretty face and possibly prettier than your oshi (with a few exceptions).
Won't happen, I figured out the system. Most of SSK is legit, AkiP getting paid for his market research. The top ranks, possibly not all of senbatsu but definitely Kami7 are super rigged to ensure that they put on a good show, that's how they've kept their pattern going and depending on who they choose for 2nd and 3rd they can trick people into buying more votes next year with the illusion that their oshimen might make it.
Its literally 4 guys talking to each other. Pic related is /akbg/ right now.
>She is outselling your oshi in HS
With one exception.
I have no oshi, but I freaking love Sayanee.
So who's getting Type E?
Because of track 3?
She caused a big upset when everyone expected Mayuyu to win, it caught the attention of a shitload of people that otherwise would not have cared. If any of those people decide to pursue further interest then the plan succeeded.
It's difficult to pin it down to any one thing, but I'm never bored when she's on variety, or on stage, or involved in a 48g program. She's humble despite her success, level-headed and yet hilarious. Energetic. She's probably the closest we've come to a second Yuko. Still a little too timed to fully fill those shoes though.
As for the other point, yes she's centering a single but it's no more important of a single than any other. It's certainly not even close to being the most important single in the group's history.
Honestly, the 10th anniversary single is kind of important. More than most singles, but not more than e.g. HebiRote and KFC, like the flamebaiters masquerading as Sakura-oshis are claiming.
Why did this make me laugh? I'm trying to shitpost here
Why did I fap to this. [spoilers]5 times today too[/spoiler]
You still haven't explained how it's any more important than any other single. If this was the last single, sure that would be important. If the group had already disbanded and they were coming back for one single to mark the 10th anniversary then sure, important. There's not going to be any major change because of this single and the milestone aspect is diminished by them already celebrating the group's 10th anniversary.
>HN: 1097/3195 slots sold
>KnBMB: 511/3295 slots sold
>KwM: 488/3305 slots sold
Why exactly do you think they added new events and another set of pre-sale rounds? HS sales were terrible.
BwT but it shouldn't count.
When you have Sakura-posters saying shit like "Hebi isn't important" or "you're just jealous your oshi isn't Sakura", the hateposting seems more like the thread balancing itself.
Compared to KnBMB, this had huge drops for AKB member sales, slight drop for SKE, and a moderate rise in HKT and NMB sales. If those numbers mean anything, which they might not, we could be seeing a swathe of AKB hako-oshis finally deciding to jump ship. :/
The spring single does have a pattern of selling poorly though: So Long!, Maeshika (still sold well somehow, but not in HS), Green Flash, and now Melody. Could be fans are saving up for the next single.
Still kinda would, since it's still Tokyo/Kanto-area people buying the majority of the HS tickets. If they didn't have the sister group members pushed in their faces all day (who for some reason don't sell nearly as well back home, with a few exceptions) they'd find other members to meet. But one wota only has so much cash to spend.
>showed my chad brother Downtown manzai and other performances
>by the end of it, he wanted to beat the shit out of Hamada for slapping Matsumoto and the female guests all the time
Why is Japanese humor so
shityet Downtown are so based?
Geinin was pretty funny. 1 and 2 at least. 3 was weird with all the guest comedians and no Goto.
Anyone have the webms of gay Naanya, like the akbingo one and the sailor zombie one? Thank you senpaisamatachi
And yet on that single AKB still massively outsold every sister group. There's definitely declining interest, and management continuing to push sister group members over home members seems to be driving fans away, but they're not completely gone yet.
More than half of the 30/30 handshake sellers are sister group members.
If AKB fans were bothered about sister group members getting too pushed, they'd probably be, you know, buying more HS tickets for AKB girls.
>more than double the full slots
And then there's Nogizaka.
Not sure if you fully grasped the implications of "more varied". If the fanbase is split between hundreds of girls, they're not going to sell out as quickly as one that only has ~37.
They already have more sold out slots after just the early rounds.
Didn't think much of Katomina when I first saw her (didn't think much of any NGTs, to be more accurate), but she really is a great girl. Gotta give them credit for picking her out as center.
Do you want an actual webm or will an mp4 do fine? Because here's the webm:
But the mp4 is much higher quality.
Chrome gives me an option to open the video in a new tab, save it, or copy the address just from the right click menu. At least while it's playing.
I don't *think* I have any special extensions installed.
>did you download the mp4 and convert it?
>or straight up download the webm?
I dunno anon, you tell me.
I wanna fuck Nyan, fattest Nana, Saddinesu and Hillary
Is it wrong to jerk off to Ranze, or is she asking for it?
