Future SSK rank 1 coming through.
Saho's happiness must be preserved at all costs.
Have you pre-ordered it yet?
Reminder that Sasshi is a complete
Post idols who aren't getting any chocolate this year.
But it's okay she has lots of popcorn. Who needs friends when you have popcorn.
maeda has some nice expressions
We need to make these threads faster. New thread every 12 hours.
Now I know for sure that these two are fucking each other.
I want her over me
>over any Mayu centered song any day of the week
Well, it's not like she's going to aim for it again anyways. She's done it already and she's over it.
She's over it because realized how it actually is to become a center. I'd be surprised if she want to go at it again this year but so far, it doesn't look like she will. I'd be okay with Jurina being center again but who knows what will happen in SSK but delusional predictions that everyone here is spewing out.
For anyone who wants to see the short version.
Video is blocked in Murica, so when you post any video from AKB's Youtube channel, I can't watch them unless I use a proxy.
Damage control starts early this year huh
YouTube wants them to agree to the terms of YT RED, which involves ad free streaming for subscribers, and supposedly allowing subscribers to download videos and other things. A lot of Japanese music companies haven't agreed (yet?)
Don't worry, when RED rolls out in your country you'll get to experience the fun times too.
Sasshi is a good at MC but I never seen her act in a drama before. I haven't seen her AKB horror episode yet or anything in her acting performance wise.
Youtube's bullshitting as usual. Especially with this Youtube RED and the pointless launch of Youtube Gaming.
Imma eat a shoe alright.
Wait, they just released Youtube RED. Does this means if americans paid, they could see AKB videos again?
There's a difference between Japanese music companies (the ones refusing the terms) and YouTube viewers who may or may not subscribe to YT RED.
No. It's blocked for everyone in the US in order to keep the YouTube experience "consistent".
>Wait, they just released Youtube RED. Does this means if americans paid, they could see AKB videos again?
I don't think so. Youtube RED is just basically what this anon said: >>14758890
Some Japanese YT channels, did something, I don't know how they did it, to let overseas fans to watch their videos again. AVEX is an example. I don't know AKB48 hasn't done it yet.
Ok so why is AkiP in TV early in the morning?
Any moonrune readers that can help translate what this is about?
at least there will be no justification to keep shafting new gens in favor of shit members like yuria or rena in senbatsu once they fail to make it into senbatsu again, while mako and mio deservedly break into it.
If she can squeeze into this outfit then she can squeeze into Senbatsu.
>tfw you don't hate any member and your oshi already won SSK so you don't really care about it anymore
Must be hard being a Yukirin fan, i like her to win only because Mayu probably wants that too but meh.
She gets ivolved quite often in SasshiKita
>it doesn't look like she will
Usually around this time of year she won't shut up already about it. She looks like she's chill. I kind of wish to see the old Mayu back though. I don't want her to be complacent. I never really thought she would win any SSK at all. That made 2014 all the more glorious for me at least.
She said in her salty 755 she wouldn't wear twintails this year either so i doubt we are getting that Mayuyu ever again. Sadly.
I think she has more chances than Yukirin, the sad part is that she probably wants Yukirin to win at least once.
I didn't like her last solo though but more Mayuyu is always good.
>Mayuyu oshis in this thread are completely fine with the fact that she's lost all of her fire and is remaining in AKB for the sole purpose of scrounging up a few variety bucks before her inevitable graduation
There are three different types of chocolate that girls can give on Valentine's day in Japan (giri choco, tomo choco and honmei choco) and the other person doesn't necessarily have to be a male.
I'm fine with wathever she's fine with as long as it doesn't hurt her image. I'm still gonna vote her.
Also you say "her inevitable graduation" as if some members could remain forever. Of course everyone is leaving at some point.
I just hope she goes full Kojiharu and stays in the group slowly graduating and not suddenly doing it like some other big names did.
No please not Kojiharu style.
I want to see a concert dome filled with blue light sticks please and an orchestra version of Shonichi. That's all I ask.
>How can I be more like Tani?
For some reason I find it difficult to believe you.
Imaizumi is the first KKK to reach the 100 blogposts mark. Why haven't you oshi'd her yet?
Inspired by a post from the other thread, I realized that if Miru had a p*nis she would be the ultimate human being, for she would incorporate the best of female (nice b*tt, nice b**bs, slender legs, athletic body, playful personality, expressive brown eyes, curled lips, jet-black wavy hair, olive skin, Naniwa Nadeshiko beauty) and male (uncut p*nis) worlds.
Manatsu clearly knows about the "Who is this? Akimoto Manatsu" -meme.
>doesn't let her go immediately
>pulls her closer
>mayu's hand on top of hers
That's it. I'm getting drunk today.
How many more times do you think Asuka is going to get cucked tonight?
There's nothing Katomina can do that Okappa can't do better.
Aside from baton twirling and backflips of course.
>"It's unhealthy to not ej*culate for more than 12 hours, you'll increase the risk of prostate cancer"
Happy valentine day, guys. May your oshi loves you as much as you love her.
I wonder who she is spending Valentine's with.
Happy Valentine's Day, my Cho bros
in case anyone asks, that's not me on the pic
Owada needs to lose some weight before some Buffalo Bill copycat kidnaps her, and skins her.
some shitposters are suddenly acting like there's something wrong in supporting young idols, even though most of akb debuted at even more young age than team 8
>oshing fire, not fire goddess, the one who controls fire
She's just my seconday oshi. My main oshi is much, much cuter.
>having more than one oshi
that entire back row looks awful, except minegishi for some reason.
mid row is alright, but mariko shouldn't grow her hair and sasshi's angle is not the best
front row is good, yuko as radiant as ever in spite of being towered by the gori pushes.
Then strap in and get ready for my latest idol dream.
I was teaching Naachan how to weld and all the other TTMCs came to check up on her one by one.
She was a good student but every time she got excited and tries to tell the other TTMCs about what she'd been learning they would get bored and leave, even Nagisa.
I see the memes are out again in force today.
It's Valentines /akbg/.
Let's post best couple and ignore the shitposters for once.
>You have to work hard
I hope she ranks in with Sakura this year, because we need more HKT in senbatsu.
I hope the majority of her fans have actually grown up and start voting instead of talking shit about beating Sakura in the prelims.
>you will never feel mion's crotch on your neck
>ask for best couple
>akbg posts scandal couples, unfaithful couples, cucked couples, graduated couples
Are you guys Komi?
>tfw 1/2 of the couple i like attracts so much shitposting that i no longer want to post new pics of them
Ryoka would not approve of being cowed by shitposters.
You should tell her that, maybe she'd show it off more often.
... good point.
Sometimes just "no" is enough.
Why is there not a giant autistic archive that contains every picture, video, blog post etc. for each girl? For example, say your oshi is Kitano Hinako. You click on her, and you see all the things she's done in chronological order, you click on a particular video, and it has all the other girls in that video tagged as well. Like an AKB-booru, but not just for pictures.
I know there are technical specifics I'm not thinking through, but as a community, we could do something like this right? There's already a few pastebins and google docs. Other than the initial sorting which might be time consuming, and the upkeep to keep track of each girl, I would think something like that should be feasible.
Community is too fragmented and divisive.
I'm actually working on something like that right now, however, I also know of multiple other sites/people pursuing a similar goal in slightly different ways.
I want juri to be in senbatsu this SSK.
you can just add ss to replace the www. in the url to make that a download link: sswww.youtube.com/watch?v=qtt7z9Y6-go&feature=youtu.be
just add ss instead of www. to make it a download link:
There are multiple parts to this, which really could all be done by separate sites/groups as long as they integrate.
Video hosting of anything beyond short clips is a major headache, especially if you make them searchable. The moment your site gets well known you're going to get DMCA'd. Well, I assume. I've never run one. But if not you, your ISP would. Far better to let people who have experience running such sites handle the video hosting (e.g. c48, show48), and you just handle indexing them, tagging members etc. Granted they do a little of that too but it's not extensive enough and I don't like either site much myself...
Blogs and social media are collected piecemeal all across the web, but there's no unified archive. This is something I'd personally like to help rectify, and add in translations where feasible (either linking to or embedding translators from around the web, or doing them myself/ourselves). But... long way from doing that and still have a lot to learn about what will be required.
Media tagging, as on a booru or other site, would be extremely useful, but as mention actually hosting anything larger than photos or short (e.g. social media) videos brings a lot of headaches. Perhaps tying the video tags to show episode/date + providing links to watch that episode would work.
Technically even hosting photos might violate some laws...
And then "You click on her, and you see all the things she's done in chronological order"... if you mean anything beyond just seeing everything she's tagged in, that's a whole 'nother load of work, albeit very useful once finished.
Sorry for the rambly wall of text.
Don't think I have any of that particular finger, but here, have the wonkiest pinky.
Not long now. More sweet making of footage and the members filming each other.
Here's my one 2-shot for the day. Cho is just too cute
She couldn't even act properly when they gave her a janken.
>This is based on what, exactly?
Dramas. Even in mini-dramas like the So Long specials, young Jurina was pretty good. She was great in Furiko I thought too.
>Because I've seen nothing to indicate that she is
So because you haven't seen anything, it mustn't be true right?
What the fuck are they doing with them? Are they trying to eat them?
Well, I don't agree, but I don't see a point in arguing about it. You will like what you will like, as will I, and personally I find Sakura's face cute. Not the cutest certainly, but cute.
HAPPY VALENTINES TO ALL OF YOU MAY YOU BE BLESSED BY YOUR OSHI <3
Just ignore the haters. They are just envious how you guys are living such happier lives than they are.
Speaking of two shots, were there any funny, memorable ones? If I were to travel all the way to Japan for a few photos with a girl, I really want to make the photos more memorable than generic poses.
lol, heil Hitler with Ikuchan
I have to admit, this relentless Marika spam has convinced me that I'm incredibly attracted to her. Don't quite know if it's real or just my mind giving in to the bombardment and accepting her.
