Denny’s top ten digits: Favorite members of the AKB48 family (pre-Senbatsu election).

half sakura 8b80d1e4664beaade6681d457363273c

I’m just counting Sakuratan.

The AKB48 election is ongoing, and the votes are being counted. I would not even attempt to PREDICT the results …  however I want to make my top picks of who I think SHOULD be ranked.

Several of my favorites have recently graduated, or have announced graduation. My oshi – Iwasa Misaki – left AKB for a solo career. Former-Favorite Members such as Miyuki Watanabe or Haruka Nakagawa have not officially graduated yet (as of this writing), but they are not in the running, so I will not consider them for my top-ten.  Members I love like like Aika Ota have also announced that they will not run this year, in order to support her teammates. Also, I have been a little out-of-the-loop in my fandom. The AKB legal department has blocked my usual sources of music videos and  information. There are some members I still like, but I’m not sure about their status. Please excuse my ignorance, if I missed something obvious.

Coming up with ten digits should be as easy as counting toes. Here goes …

Slide1

Ichi. Yuki Kashiwagi. Yukirin has always done everything right. Perhaps this will be her year to reach #1. She certainly deserves it. I think that after her next big solo concert tour this year, she will announce her graduation. I would like to see her go out on top.

Slide2

Ni. Mayu Watanabe. I was very happy when she was elected #1 a couple of years ago. I have always liked her solo songs, and she was so great in the WH7, and well … IS so great at everything.

Slide3

San. Sayaka Yamamoto. She’s beautiful – she’s sexy. The dark-haired beauty is so much more than a pretty face. She is a good singer, and it is enjoyable seeing her develop as a musician. Sayanee is an adept guitarist in everything from punk to folk. Could she play any Todd Rundgren?

Slide4

Yon. Sakura Miyawaki. I might rank the young goddess higher – but for the problem of where to put her. She will, of course, take the #1 position someday. Sakuratan is adorable in all dimensions of the multi-verse. Although SHE is flawless, I am disappointed that the AKB/HKT48 have not let her perform more solo songs. The recent B-side duet with Haruppi was a good step in the right direction.

Slide5

Go. Haruka Kodama. OK, you have got me. The young lady is strikingly beautiful and she makes me wish I had majored in podiatry. I try to keep my lust for her in check … but her modeling work is very, very good. I feel guilty about ranking a member so highly based more on looks rather than singing.  I can’t really judge Haruppi on singing-talents alone, because when I see her sing, it is usually part of a group effort. She was amazing in “Sayonara Surfer” last year however. More please.

The next few might be the “Are you still here” category. ? Ha Ha. No …

These are still my old favorites, but are interchangeable to some extent. I love all of them, but I don’t think that these would crack my top-five.

Slide6

Roku. Yui Yokoyama. I always jump to attention when commanded to by Yuihan. If there were more bosses like her I would not mind so much being “called on the carpet”.

Slide7

Nana. Haruna Kojima. Or is it “Nyan Nyan Kamen”? I’m still not sure about this marketing scheme. Why does the world’s most beautiful woman need a secret identity? Kojiharu – I would still recognize you, even if you were in your underwear!!!

Slide8

Hachi. Minami Minegishi. I think that Miichan said that this is her last election. She has been one of my favorites, ever since I discovered and started following AKB48 way back in in 2011. She looked like a baby then. She still looks like a baby, but this baby can still deliver the goods.

Slide9

Kyuu. Haruka Shimizaki.  Paruru will rise to meet any challenge. If the haters get to you, I’m here for you sweetie.

Slide10

Ju. Rino Sashihara. I do not rank her as high as many fans will, but I still love this Irishwoman. I may disagree with her, but she still has the legs to win any debate. I concede to you Sasshi.

Well, those are my 100 reasons. Certainly, all ten of these are deserving of being the #1 in AKB48. Argue with me in the comments.

Starlilight: Hmmmm … It looks like I will need more digits in order to get Jurina Matsui and Mako Kojima on my list …

Now I’m living in a black-and-white world.

What Sayaka Yamamoto looks like when I don't have any colorful thoughts.

What Sayaka Yamamoto looks like when I’m out of colorful ideas.

Sorry, Yamamoto-san, you can go home. You are doing everything right as usual, I just can’t get my imagination going now.

What happened to the COLOR options in the WordPress editor!?!? I used to be able to create color text. The button was there now it is gone … My signature “Starlight” sign-off is supposed to be written in RED. Otherwise, how would you know that I’m moving rapidly away from you, and not towards you? Now I am living in the “Black and White World”.

SING IT, Elvis (link here). My heart is not in this drab world, Sayanee. Here are the lyrics. You read them dear girl, while I sort this out.

Written by Elvis Costello: “Black and White World” 1980.

I was looking at the black and white world
It seemed so exciting
If you’d only put me back to back with that girl
When the night’s inviting

yamamoto-sy-shashinshuu-1241
With just a little lighting
There’ll never be days like that again
When I was just a boy and men were men
You never go from moment to moment
You’re the living double of a single fiction
You’re very colourful with your compliments
As you feel the finger’s friction

yamamoto-sy-shashinshuu-321
It’s a freeze-frame
Still it’s real life
You don’t want to look
Cause you’ve seen the film and you’ve read the book
I was looking at the black and white world
Trying to name some pin-up
Those days she was just a beautiful girl
Now she’s framed and hung up

yamamoto-sy-shashinshuu-36_thumb

I thought she was young
Up until I saw her last night in close detail
Though they all fade away when you’re so pale
It’s more than just a physical attraction

yamamoto-sy-shashinshuu-106
It starts with a face and ends up a fixation
But you’re never gonna feel a fraction
Of the way it used to work on your imagination
When you were looking at the black and white world…

NMB48’s new single “Punkish” does not need the “ish”!

scene-from-punkish-pv

Anarchy in the Namba District!!!

The new NMB48 single has a pretty good punk guitar sound! Take it from someone who actually lived during the original late 1970s early 1980s punk movement. The girls do justice to the genre.

Of course, I love any Sayaka Yamamoto performance.  Sayanee is not a noob. She has been playing guitar in live performances for several tours now.  She’s not just another pretty butt – this lady is multi-talented. I am so happy to see her in punk. So nostalgic. “Pretty-in-Punk” as we said in the 1980s. Of course she would have kicked my ass even back then.

NMB New Wave! You also get to see the other band members play instruments too. Miyuki Watanabe also plays guitar!

punkish clip

I can just imagine me instructing Milky-chan on how to play the guitar. I would sit behind her … I would be putting my arms over her arms from behind — not quite a hug – but almost. Still, I can smell her hair.  She giggles. Then I take her hand, place it on the neck staff, manipulate her hand over the frets. She asks sweetly if she is doing it right.  Of course, Milky-chan I say … of course …

Oh … right .. ahem… the music video.  The full version is not on Youtube yet, but here is the full version on Jpopsuki (link here).

This is NOT that kind of a blog!

sayaka is as stunned as I am

Sayaka recoiled in horror when I told her that WP users want to see AkiP naked!

I am as shocked and disgusted as you are Yamamoto-san.

I do not like how WordPress has changed the “STATS” page.  I liked the old page much better, as it was more comprehensive and easier to navigate — but that is beside the point right now.

One of the items I like on the WP stats page is the “search terms” list which tells you the words that were being Googled or Binged in order to link to your site. There are more often than not “unknown terms” from these search engines, but a few search terms are still shown.

I was happy that I have had more than 15,000 views on my blog, but I am disgusted that so many perverts* are clicking to my site.  Just this morning, someone had linked to my blog by Googling “jap lolita father imcest”.  Yup. Someone wanted to view images or stories about “imcest” between a father and a Lolita daughter.  Now I love Japanese “Lolita” fashions, but in no way am I ever going to show any “imcest” (whatever that is) here.

I can’t count the times that the search terms that brought users to my site were things like “lesbi kimono” or “yuko oshima naked” “sayaka yamamoto nude” or “hot pix jap lesbi”. Believe me, it gets way worse than that. The words “akb48 lesbian” is probably the most common – which is news to me — as they are certainly not.  Of course, I love AKB48 and their fun outfits, however there is NEVER any nudity or vulgarity in any of the photos or music videos I share. Even for the “gravure” magazine ads, the girls never pose naked (…entirely).

Denny is NOT making this up:  Three days ago was the topper: someone visited my site by using the search terms “Yasushi Akimoto naked”. Oy.

Now, I can understand why the users might want to see the AKB ladies naked … but … um, er … huh huh. Look, I have the utmost respect for AKB’s lyricist/producer/boss – but WHO ON EARTH WANTS TO SEE MR. AKIMOTO NAKED???

Thank you Sayanee, this has all been very troubling for all of us here at Denny Sinnoh’s Akihabara Starlight

You may have to console Milky-chan for awhile  … OH, I see that you already are.

The Devil you know, and the Devil you don’t.

miyuki watanabe with sayaka yamamoto NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto and Miyuki Watanabe Namba Bishojo Koiuta 02

“I need a big strong man to help me!”

Men … we have no defense for this phrase when it is uttered by a nice lady.  We would be especially helpless if it is asked by the two AKB48/NMB48 Idols Miss Sayaka Yamamoto (“Sayanee”), and Miss Miyuki Watanabe (“Milky”).  Ladies: Be honest. You ladies know exactly what you are doing when you say things like that to us.  You KNOW there is no way that a guy can refuse.  Here are two versions of the song “Warukii” (Waru Milky) aka “Bad Milky”.  Although the song was originally intended for Miyuki, Yamamato-san does a devilishly good job here. Turn on the HD!

See what I mean? HD …Grrrrowl.  Watanabe-san will be the next little devil.

Perhaps the video quality is not strictly comparable, and the performances are slightly different as well. I think that Sayaka is a “naughty” little devil, whereas Milky is a “sweet” devil.  I might make an analogy that they are like Devils Food Cake (recipe linked here) vs. Angel Food Cake (recipe linked here), but they are both dressed as devils, and both are beautiful angels — just different.

The song is about a young lady who is out shopping, and has a lot of packages to carry.  Of course she needs a “big strong guy, with big sexy biceps” to help her. (That big strong guy is YOU by the way!)

“Let me touch your muscles
 Just how hard are they?
 For a girl, they’re very interesting
 I want to see how strong you are
 I wonder what they’re like
 I’m trembling with excitement
 Biceps are so sexy, aren’t they?
 Hold everything for me! “

The lyrics are by Yasushi Akimoto.  A full translation from Studio48 is linked here.

These two are so good, it is hard for a fan to choose.  Sayanee and Milky are so good together… I can’t choose!  So here is a slide show of the dynamic duo. Enjoy!
