I guess it really is over for the original team N.

If only that cover kitty could have left a little bit more positive and happy last impression when she/he looked back on what have been, it looks so sad.


The stage finally arrives after three years of frustrating delays... Pretty sick, when it is time to review 2014 and you realize that this stage was performed less times by the girls it was intended for compared to the post shuffle team. 


What will happen to the units then? 


- Yume no Dead Body - Yamamoto Sayaka

- Nandomo Nerae! - Kotani Riho, Muro Kana, Yamagishi Natsumi, Kato Yuuka, Kono Saki

- ONEW no Uwabaki - Ota Yuuri, Yogi Keira, Yamauchi Tsubasa

- Kono Sekai... - Kishino Rika, Yamaguchi Yuuki, Koga Narumi, Nishimura Aika

- Zipper - Yoshida Akari, Jonishi Kei, Sutou Ririka 


- Hajimete no Hoshi - Yamamoto Sayaka, Yoshida Akari, Jonishi Kei, Kotani Riho, Nishimura Aika, Kato Yuuka, Kishino Rika  


Kashiwagi will be center for Zipper and part of Hajimete no Hoshi during shonichi and then never be seen again. Well, exept for 3rd position in the next single senabtsu... 

Murashige Anna in Nandomo Nerae! at the times she visits.


Yuuri and Keira looks rock solid for ONEW but Nandomo Nerae! will be a sad mess with girls that doesn't fit in.




...maybe it is for the best to retire this stage after the last performance before the shuffle. Sad and wastefull but it somehow feels like the right thing to do.

I think that'd be ideal, just because there are two units that are absolutely wrecked by this and even though I do like Akarin's Zipper, that's another unit that's not going to have the same purpose without Milky. Part of me believes that AKS would still want to pressure the use of it since it's new, but at the same time, it's not as if AKS actually cares about the theater anymore, so it shouldn't matter what Team N performs as long as the theater sells out.


Wait, yeah, except for that one time Yukirin performs Zipper. That was the whole point of the shuffle after all.

LOL .. the answer is pretty simple ..
Do you really need Acchan to do Nagisa no CHERRY?
It is a song intended for Acchan .. but later done by everyone even the anime did it ..
Again its a case of thinking too much .. sorry ..its about as important as your KFC is made by Colonel Sanders when bite into a KFC chicken ..

The thing is this is idol pop .. the songs will live on hopefully .. but the idol will go one way or the other ..
If its not shuffle.. its graduation .. just be happy if good songs goes on ..
and don't get carried away by the original person who does it ..

Didn't really plan on listening to the stage recording until I got the CD, but it hasn't shipped yet and will probably be Wednesday before I get it (still waiting on it for the single...), but I broke down. Some different opinions forming between viewing/listening particularly between units.


I never realized how weak of a song Yume no dead body is all things considered. It has such sparse instrumentation since the guitar is entirely based on Sayaka's (or Aika's) performance that there just doesn't feel like there's any punch to the song at all. It didn't really seem that way watching it, but I don't think it's a very flattering studio song. I also think Kono Sekai is a better song to listen to, even if it's always the one I look forward to the least (well, I don't really look forward to ONEW, but that's more I don't care for the song in either medium, heh). So I find it curious how much more I enjoy it, maybe it'll offer me a fresh look at it next stage I watch, though I'll probably just keep waiting for it to be over so Zipper can come up, heh.


Zipper is great, Keicchi has a really nice voice and I hope she'll have more opportunities to show it off. I've also trained my ear to find Kanakichi and I think she has a nice singing voice too when I can find it (it's not a whole lot more than an extension of her speaking voice). I'm not really sure how it sounds on its own, but it seems to work well with other voices. Nando mo Narae! is great here.


The post unit set of Hajimete no Hoshi, 100nen Saki Demo, and Ribbon Nante Niawanai are much better than I typically feel it is. In general, it's really nice to have a firmer grasp of the songs now, at least just in time for the shuffle to happen.  :itadakimasu: It should make future views of the stage nice looking and listening for different things.

Well put, satchan. I agree about Yume no Dead Body left wanting on the album, whereas Kono Sekai (which I didn't care for as a song, though the vocals were good)

really turned out to be a positive surprize.


The stages have always changed for me after listening to the recordings... shifts focus from performance to the music, melodies and even lyrics, even though

I have to find them translated  :) The recordings also reveals much more of the instrumentation, which is often drowned out in the not-far-from-crappy sound quality of the LODs.

That alone is worth it, usually you'll find excellent performances by the backing musicians.


But every time it has left me with a feeling of getting more out of watching the stages again later.


Only downside to this for me, was that Fumo no Tochi proved unsalvable even on record... I guess I'll continue to skip that on the LODs.

Yukirin centered Zipper in NMB's SSA concert. 


Team N are keeping N3 even after the shuffle takes place ^^
