Nogizaka46 3rd generation

05 October 2016 - 05:51 PM

What is this strange feeling?


I just read someone's impression on Nogizaka46 3ki and it was written there that it's quite possible that Ikuta will graduate in 2018.


And before that happens it says that it's quite possible to have this kind of 10 members formation

2nd line: Iwamoto (3ki), Ito Karin (2ki), Ozono (3ki), Hori (2ki), Terada (2ki)

1st line: Yamashita (3ki), Yoda (3ki), Ikuta (1ki), Saito Asuka (1ki), Kubo (3ki)


Anyhow, here is my impression on 3ki members (along with their comments on passing the audition)



Nakamura Reno, 14 years old, from Tokyo

"I thought that I don't have a chance, but I'm glad that I passed. From now on I'll do my best with all my efforts"


AKB-ish face, cute but somewhat ordinary. Eyes slightly remind me Maeda Atsuko. She looks diligent and maybe she will replace Ikuta's character? I didn't see her audition broadcasts. 



Ozono Momoko, 16, Kagoshima pref.

"It's mysterious that I succeeded even though I don't have any skills. I'll work hard from now on"


She looks promising. I'm kinda worried how senpai members will treat her, since she can position herself to many existing characters (or be a wild mix of those).



Yamashita Mizuki, 17, Tokyo

"It's like a dream to join my favorite Nogizaka46, I haven't realized everything yet. I don't really have "character" or "personality", but I'll do my best to contribute to Nogizaka46".


Um, she's beautiful. Definite choice for model jobs and probably rival and successor to Shiraishi Mai. Unlike 1ki beauties with "cool faces", she has a "gentle face".

[AMA] Ask Me Anything!

05 September 2016 - 11:38 PM

Yeey! Time to make another meaningless topic! 888


So, I saw this AMA thread in Reddit, where Bjork was answering different questions from Reddit users and then I thought "Should I go and buy some snack now or wait till the morning and get my favourite ice cream?"


This is a thread where you can ask any question to anyone and, who know, maybe "The Universe" will give you the answer.


It can be someone from your favourite idols.


to: Kago Ai

Why were you looking so often at Kame-chan when she just entered MM?


or it can be a member of H!O or somebody else

Human relationships within a group

17 August 2016 - 10:39 AM

“Trying to not hurt others is something you can't do. People are creatures who hurt others just by existing even if they're not aware of it. Whether you're living or dying. you'll always be hurting someone. Once you're involved, you'll hurt someone, and even by not being involved, you might be hurting someone else as well...”

― Wataru Watari




The other day I was watching tv-show where announcement about SMAP disbandment was discussed. It was aired the same day the announcement was made. I didn't know that Nakai Masahiro was the eldest among the members and that he was the leader of the group. The very moment I learned it, it flashed through my mind that it was his busy schedule (also Kimura Takuya's maybe) that became a reason for disbandment. It was said on that tv-show that only Nakai wanted to keep the group, Kimura was not sure and three other members wanted to disband the group.


Anyhow, I wanted to make a thread where we could discuss interpersonal relationship dynamics in different idol groups. Who hates whom, who loves whom, how does this change over time, etc.


Relationship problem is one of the main reasons for Japanese people to quit their jobs and search for other. Also, it's one of the reasons some people move from big cities to rural areas. Of course, there are different tensions at work almost everywhere on Earth, but in case of Japan it's worsened by "senpai-kohai" bonds, "group over person" idea and "the more the pressure the better the result" nurture principle (slowly disappearing, but still present).


If you know any obvious example of relationship problems within a group, feel free to share! 










“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

Sci-Fi movies and dramas

07 February 2016 - 07:54 AM

Welcome to the thread for Science Fiction fans!

Post your favourite movies and drama recommendations.


Here is my current recommendation list:

1. The Expanse (drama)

2. Utopia (drama)

3. Primer (movie) - it may seem boring at the beginning, but it's totally worth watching

4. The lost room (drama)



I still need to check "Limitless" and good ol' "Firefly" (never finished watching the pilot). Also, I'm about to start reading "Xenos" and start exploring the vast legendarium of Warhammer 40000.
