Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Posts tagged ‘Birthdays’

Read any good books this summer? Special birthday wishes to Miss Yuki Kashiwagi of AKB/NGT48.

Of course I keep up with my summer reading! I am so happy that my favorite AKB48 member has made this useful reference manual to help me at my office. Even though I am very dedicated to work, and cannot blog very often these days, I am not too busy to wish my oshi a HAPPY 26TH BIRTHDAY! Please enjoy one of my favorite Yukirin moments from her solo tour last year.

(Denny sighs, swoons) … she’s my favorite niece … but I am pretty sure that she will announce her graduation from AKB this year. Alas, it is probably time for the dear young lady to move on. Yukirin may be near the end of her AKB48 career, but I am sure she will continue as a solo singer, actress and media personality.

I want to pay tribute to Yukirin History here. This is an old AKB sketch where Yuki played an old kendo master –as a man!  Note the Kashiwagi beard and mustache. There is a funny moment at about time 3:00 where her “assistant” is supposed to strike her on the head. Their timing was actually off, because Yuki really does get hit hard on the head. Ha. Watch her reaction.

Oh, Yuki, you are a real trouper!

In Birthdays today: Miss Yuki Kashiwagi — The REAL Superhero.

Assemble your team Yukirin!

Japan is 12 hours ahead of my time zone, so I want to be among the first to wish MY FAVORITE NIECE  a happy 25th Birthday!!! I wish you all the happiness in the world, my dear young lady.

yuki d4de1d0fbecb28c51b4ed44a2a7f76a9

Twenty-five … Wow … a quarter-century. She sounds kinda ancient now. Of course, in comparison I am Precambrian.

If you are going out this weekend to watch the latest Marvel/DC tights wearing movie, please consider my case that Yuki Kashiwagi is actually the REAL superhero. She is a trooper. Remember a couple of years ago how she was sent to Osaka to join NMB48? I scoffed at the move at first, but look how great it turned out — “Ibiza Girl” and others. How did she know to be just in the right place at just the right time? Does she have Spidey sense?

yuki c6ff1d7edcbbbd6a5e72fb5843c92f83

Ha. Even if you are wearing your “Bat-Yukirin” costume — I CAN STILL TELL IT IS YOU!

She was also called upon to be the “den mother” to the newly formed NGT48. Heroically she has helped to get this new sister group off the ground. Forget “The Avengers” … (I’m not really sure what the new movie is called. I just know that Stan Lee makes a cameo!) … Yukirin is the REAL superhero.

Forget that “Superman marries Batman” … or whatever that thing was. I’d rather see Yuki’s new solo concert tour Blu-Ray!

Forget the Bat-signal — give me a Yuki Signal!

yuki 488bd702f0a3c3734f9817a9e2d05b7d

Indeed, Yukirin — even Superheros deserve a good foot rub once in a while!

Kashiwagi-san is EVERYTHING that anIdol should be. Will this be her last Birthday as a member of AKB48? Yukirin only ranked 5th in the last AKB election — where I thought she had a shot at taking #1.  I will bet if her recent solo concert tour came after the election she might have used the last day to make a graduation announcement. She is a trooper — a hero — she can take one for the team, so maybe she will take the 5th place and just roll with it … but I speculate and digress too much …

A song? Where are you going to find one of those?

In Birthdays today: The wholesome Mayu Watanabe

Happy Birthday Mayuyu!!! Born March 26th, 1994. Wholesome, yes. If you were expecting images of Mayu’s butt, see someone else’s blog.

You should not be so “taken aback” Mayu, indeed YOU ARE are a very talented and WHOLESOME young lady.

lolita mayu a5926e1e5105c5bcffd49ef771a6dc4b

How I think of Mayu. Far from the “cyborg” of her early days. Mayu is a sweet Lolita. She is like sweet cotton candy … only not nearly as sticky.

Mayu, you went to Ohio State too? So did I!!! …  come here and give your fellow alumnus a big hug! (Denny hugging Mayu). Mmmmmm … We will beat Michigan TOGETHER, Mayu …  Mmmmmmm. We will show that bad team from up north … Mmmmmmmmmmm … Just you and me Mayu … Mmmmmmmmm … That’s right …. Mmmmmmmm … just me and you Mayu …. Mmmmmmm … (Denny turns to readers mouthing words: I really didn’t go to Ohio State, hee hee.)

AKB48 Trivia: Not many fans know that Mayuyu is also the official spokeswoman for the Jehovah’s Waitresses.

At first I was excited when Ensign Watanabe ordered me to  “swab the poop deck“.

mayu watanabe is not ticklish

Ha ha ha. You did not tell me your feet were so TICKLISH, Miss Watanabe … Ha Ha … You silly, silly girl, Hee Hee … let me try that foot rub again and

BZZZT – BZZZT –  BZZZT –  BZZZT –  BZZZT – BZZZT – BZZZT – BZZZT –  BZZZT –  BZZZT –  BZZZT – BZZZT – 

Oh, damn that alarm clock!!! Oh, what day is it … oh crap-on-a-stick, I have to go to work today….

————————————————————————————————————————-

Oh, you can make your own lame captions …

… just wish Mayuyu a happy birthday (Japan is 12 hours ahead of me).

A song? Of course there should be a song. I love that little teacup.

Remember this funny Mayu moment from AKBINGO? Will anyone be KISSED? Funny in English subs!

Every once in a while, pure MAGIC is captured on low quality video. Sigh.

See more Mayuyu fashions on my Pinterest board for her linked here.

Starlight: Mayu Watanabe born March 26, 1994. I remember that day … I got fired. Well, they say that God closes one door but opens another. True, I was shunned by pompous narcissistic pseudo-intellectuals, but …

… BABY MAYU CAME INTO THE WORLD!!!!  

Snivy’s birthday wishes for Miss Hanako Oku!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANAKO OKU!

snivy IMG_0103

My friend Snivy is a huge Hanako Oku fan. Probably a bigger fan than I am — because he reminded me about The Little Great One’s upcoming Birthday on March 20.

(Snivy wanted to share a song by Ms. Oku-san … unfortunately, PonyCanyon Records has blocked all Hanako Oku music videos in the Unova Region.)

Happy Birthday Sakura!

Japan is 12 hours ahead of me, so I want to be the first in my time zone to wish my daughter Sakura Miyawaki, a HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY!

sakura b90ccd0647a7112689a654cf892488aa

SOMEONE sure had a big growth spurt this year! What happened to that bony, monkey-eared little elf? It seems like only yesterday I was fixing her bicycle and bandaging her skinned knees.

“Sakura, you may be 18 now, but if you are going to live in my house — you are going to have to follow my rules …”

sakura skateboard ca2dd6fc09c950d8dd9ce9f536bf70b1

(Denny’s reverie ends)… Aye — I would be a great father for this other-worldly talented young Idol — not that she needs my help, or could be improved upon.

sakura shops for greens

Sakura makes shopping for greens so much more enjoyable!

What she adds to HKT48 is one thing, but she is also a good role model, and is a person of good moral character*. I have noticed (even with the delays via starlight), that she has matured in height and stability this past year. Sakura-tan is easily one of my favorite idols. She is a great team player in HKT48, but I would also love to see more solo singing from her.

Happy 21st Birthday Miss Iwasa Misaki-san!

iwasa umbrella

I (HEART) You Wasamin! Her birthday is January 30, but Japan is 12 hours ahead of me. I want to be the first in my time-zone to extend birthday wishes to her.

The wonderful Miss Iwasa Misaki-san is scheduled (as of this writing) to perform her 1st Solo Live Concert on Saturday January 30th, 2016 at Asakusa Public Hall, Tokyo .  What a way to celebrate her 21st Birthday! I cannot be there, but I will try to find and post some images of the event. If there is a DVD, I will buy it. Until then I will share some photos that I never got around to posting.

wasamin as a little girl B8lxXUICQAAxc5S

She began her Idol training at age four : )

wasapurple

Here are some recent video clips from various performances — past and present. I wish I had a present …

I would like to share some videos from the Library of Iwasa History. Wasamin may get better with age … but YouTube videos age quickly, so you better watch these now!

I know … many of these these will disappear soon. However — imagine these are like candles on a birthday cake. With each great Misaki-san video that is blown away — you will make a Misaki wish come true!!!   I sure know what my wish is : )

Starlight: Iwasa Misaki born January 30th, 1995.

Happy Birthday Miss Kashiwagi! / Krazy Kool Kashiwagi Kaptions

Yukiring

Dear Yukirin,

I know that I have not been able to use WordPress much lately, however I wanted to be the first in my time zone to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on July 15th. Japan is 12 hours ahead of me, so I wanted to time my greeting before you start going out to nightclubs and such tonight. Be careful, young one!

Uncle Denny.

Everyone else: Please enjoy my tribute to Yuki Kashiwagi  柏木 由紀  (Kashiwagi Yuki), born July 15, 1991 in Kagoshima Prefecture of Kyushu, Japan. The delightful Yukirin was born in the shadow of Mount Sakurajima, an active strato-volcano! (Ask a Geology-nerd what that is).

Yukirin is my second-favorite AKB Member … and the subject of my photo tribute for her special day.

oddlythiswasmydreamlastnight

You know, except for the salt, this WAS my dream last night, Yukirin.

Remember Yukirin: an apple a day …  er … uh … um … er … heh heh .. what was I saying?

Note for future reference: All I had to do was show up at the pool party holding a bag of “Doritos” and Miss Kashiwagi immediately kicked off her shorts!

You are CORRECT Yukirin, this place does need a good set of door-knockers!

yuki stay at the y

Yes, thank you for the recommendation Yukirin, indeed I think I will “stay at the Y” tonight!

Some say the volume is half-full, some say it is half-empty. I say “sit down you morons” I can’t see Yukirin!

warmandfuzzyfeelings

What?!?  I will have you people know that I only have “warm and fuzzy” feelings for Kashiwagi-san.

yuki two seam fastball

Yes, thank you for explaining how your “two seam fastball” breaks down-and-in on right-handed batters. Oh, and how can I get one of those “milk-fed” mustaches?

oksowhereisthesmoke

Please do not be JEALOUS ladies, Yuki only looks this good because she “does it all with mirrors”.

So much Yuki! … so little room. Enjoy my retrospective Yukirin SlideShow!

Happy Birthday Miss Kashiwagi!

I wish I could do justice to how talented Ms. Kashiwagi is. She is a trooper. I wanted to link some performance videos of her amazing 3rd solo concert, however Record Industry Weasels have removed every last one! … every last one!
