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.
Oooh, Gekijouban Gokigen Teikoku. This one is definitely not as well-known as, say, PassCode or NMB48, but it still holds a special place in my heart nonetheless. There’s two reasons for that, the first is: their lives while I was in Japan were just so much fun I probably won’t forget them until alzheimer gets me. The second is, their YouTube channel is one of the best idol channel there is out there.
This one was released on October 3, 2016. It’s a shorter interview of Yabushita Shu, a member of NMB48 who recently announced her graduation, published in the “G (Gravure) The Television” magazine. She’s my ultimate oshi (and you can find her graduation speech partly translated on my twitter account). Here goes!
