Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Has it been a whole year since Tomomi Itano graduated AKB48?  I certainly wish her well in her solo career.  She was one of my favorites in the original AKB48.  Tomochin is pretty, she has a great personality and was always a lot of fun in her roles. Having said that, I will have to say that Tomochin is really not “my type”.

I know what you’re thinking: “Denny, ANY girl is your type … you can’t be choosy”.

What I mean is– although I think that Tomochin is a beautiful, talented young lady, her style and musical tastes are not what I am usually interested in.  Tomochin is a real “bling-bling” type of girl , the kind who would wear a baseball cap sideways.  She often is photographed in American “hip-hop” style street clothes, with NY or LA emblems on them.  Without knowing too much about her personal life, I can tell that Tomomi likes the “bad boy” type.  I still respect Itano-san for her performances, even if her musical style does not match mine. Still, she was a lovable and indispensable part of AKB48.  It has been fun watching her grow up from a gawky teen to the graceful singer/actress/model she is today.

Yes, Ms. Itano, those new vitamins you have been taking appear to be working well for you, … very nice …  you look healthy … except I should probably let you know that I’m not the real doctor, I only empty the trashcans here.

… and oh yes, she is hotter than the surface of the sun!

Let me share a few interesting memories of  Tomochin.  My all-time favorite song from her is “Fuini”.  If you do not watch anything else, please enjoy Tomochin’s lovely eyes here.

There was the big JPop Music Summit in San Francisco recently, so there are several shaky, cell phone videos of this performance by Tomochin.  Here is one, but I expect it to be taken down by RECORD INDUSTRY WEASELS any minute now.  Itano-san has brought her “funky dancers” for this performance.  Tomochin is still learning English so, she speaks to the audience through an interpreter. ENJOYABLE!!! … oh wait a minute this stuff is “not my thing”.  I wish I had been there, however, … if I had stood that close to the amazing Tomomi Itano, I probably would have burst into flames.

Speaking of learning “Engrish” — many are familiar with this interview Tomochin did in English.  Ms. Itano is trying very hard, but she really struggles with her English here.  No, I’m NOT making fun … I love Tomochin.  I am glad that she was trying to make the effort to communicate with her fans in English.  The reporter asks some very stupid questions to the Idol however — e.g. “Are you dating anyone special?” — when everyone knows that AKB48 has a “no dating rule”.  A little bit of research by that reporter would have made it a better interview.  Enjoy, but cringe, at this piece of Itano-history.  If you laugh at Tomochin, I will PUNCH you.  Buddha-only knows, her English is better than my Japanese.

Also, another difficult-to-watch part of AKB history is this meeting of Itano-san and American singer Avril Levigne.  Clearly, Levigne does not like Tomochin’s “Dear J”  song.  What a train wreck.  Now I hate Avril Levigne.

To end on a better note, I will share this “home movie” that 15-year old Tomomi Itano made.  This was shot around the time that AKB48 first formed.  It has ENGLISH SUBS, and is very cute.  In this video, the young idol makes spaghetti at home.  She looks so different in those days (a mere gawky teenager), yet she is so adorable in this.  This is a lot of fun and another interesting piece of AKB history — from back when the group could not even sell out their shows.

Starlight:  It took me two years to find Fuini.

Oh Tomochin ... OF COURSE my refrigerator is running , it would not be working properly if it wasn't running --- you SILLY GIRL !

Oh Tomochin … OF COURSE “my refrigerator is running”, it would not be working properly if it wasn’t running — you SILLY GIRL !
