An extensive look at an idol who’s trying not to be an idol. You read that right! She’s a bit of a weirdo, but she sure is sweet.
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But I’ve returned from my ashes to present you with one of the things I was waiting for. Granted, this Mene’s interview has been published in Natalie.mu on May 10th which is already quite a while back. Especially since, in the meantime, someone translated the whole WagamamaShinsei interview elsewhere (click on that link to get to it) which might make this one less relevant.
What better thing is there than to celebrate the release of LADYBABY’s new single “Pelo” with an interview from one half of the duo?
Here we go. Natalie posted a small “solo interview” a month ago and I haven’t seen it translated, so I thought I might give it a go. It’s a pretty short read but you can still get a small insight of what Togaren has been thinking since joining Zenkimi. I hope everything makes sense, as always.
As all of you following this group must already be aware of, Kajunyan (or whatever the romanization of her pseudonym is, might very well be Kazunyan) has announced her retirement yesterday, because of a worsening condition of her feet’s disease. Ponto Pero then wrote a small but nice blogpost about this.
So as some of you may know, Saki, an ex-member of Guso Drop and currently soloist idol with her “group” 2& (DOUBLE AND), has released her first (?) MV on YouTube yesterday. First, I recommend you to give it a go.
Hello there, time for a yet another “new” flavor. Subs! Well, this is actually something I’ve done a couple of months ago, before this blog existed — back from my trip to Japan, I discovered an awesome group while being there that I went to see no less than five times in a row. Their musics were quite good and the girls all adorable (Momo is still my oshi). Their name? It’s in the title, but let me repeat it anyway: Kirakira Gerira.
Hey! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But I’m back. Finally. FINALLY. Why do I say that? Because this is one interview I truly hadn’t planned on spending so much time on. And if it took me so long, it’s because of a mix of getting busy and the material’s length (my longest translation to date), which might be a good thing for you, at least. Anyway, it’s time for some Ano.
Hey guys, didn’t I tell you this blog would have flavors for everyone? That includes 2D idols fans as well! And what better 2D idols are there other than the world-famous Love Live girls? The iDOLM@STER girls, of course!… But what I’ve translated here is still a Love Live piece, though.
This is a request-ish thing from Homicidols who poked me on twitter, linking me to this freshly posted BiSH’s Ayuni D interview. It’s from the “beautiful girls’ interviews” series published by Shueisha’s Weekly Playboy News (ShuuPlay / 週プレ). I won’t translate the introductory paragraph, as often, since it’s useless. Blah blah the little sister character blah blah dark past. That kind of things.
Haa, Himari Tsukishiro. I don’t often fall in love with a girl at first sight — I mean, I may happen to put a girl I just discovered as my new wallpaper or start following her on all social medias (that’s what idols are for, right?) over night — but for me to actually make a drawing the moment I see her and start following the whole group and her past accomplishment just after two pictures? That’s uncommon. And what is even more uncommon today is a translation of 2 of her tumblr’s short stories.
Looks like I’ll be alternating between regular idols and underground idols. A bit of everything for everyone. It’s time for one (of the many) lovely girl of Keyakizaka46, that famous idol group who managed to make it all the way through Kouhaku Utagassen on their first year of existence. Quite a feat.
