AKB48’s 18th Single – “BEGINNER” Type A & B

As we all know (and if anyone doesn’t), Beginner has two versions of PV (not dance version). The ORIGINAL version is the said violent and is not appropriate for children to watch and so they made another one. Though that version of PV has not been released yet, there is someone kind enough to share the original (uncensored) version to us because it could only be seen and downloaded from an only JP cellphone download site. Here is an LQ upload but it’s better than nothing.

!WARNING!

The contents of the PV is not suitable for young audiences. Only 16+ please. 😀 (As if you guys would take the warning right? XD )

Berryz Koubou 24th Single “SHINING POWER” PV (MQ)

After sleeping and not opening my aunt’s laptop that I borrowed, FINALLY! Great news has come! 😀 Berryz Koubou’s newest single, their 24th single, “Shining Power” Promotional Video was released 19hours ago at the UpFrontChannel (Youtube) which s around 6pm yesterday. I find it weird and odd because I was up around until 7pm online and I didn’t see the upload and around 6:30, I edited my post about not being able to see the video in Youtube because the PV was released in a JP cellphone only site. As you can see if you look at the video from youtube, only around 306 had viewed the PV. That means they uploaded it earlier and just made it public in a later time. That’s it. Lol. Anyway, here is the PV. 😀

Here is my comment in the thread @ H!O

FINISHED IT! 😀
But hey! I like the PV so far. ❤ The dance is not as tiring and complicated as their dances before (before Maji Bomba) but this choreography is wonderful and powerful.Especially when you look at Captain dancing, she gives out powerful moves but also graceful that makes Captain dazzling.(or is it the other way around? Because of Captain’s skill and graceful dance makes the moves look dazzling?)I’m just saying my own observation. I’m not being bias here (even though I’m Captain’s fan).

 

What’s wrong with the PV? I don’t get it? Most people on H!O don’t like it. I like it and it didn’t make Berryz look bad. It even accomplished its goal on making Berryz look good, etc. It looks simple, yes, so what? Simplicity often wins competitions man. What I mean is, simple PV is also good. The thing here is to see the members look good not the setting or what the background is. For me the PV is already good.

Akimoto Sayaka Steps Down As AKB48’s Team K Captain

It has been a day since the news broke out that Akimoto Sayaka, AKB48’s Team K Leader had resigned from her position. It was because of the recent scandal that broke out with Hiroi Ouji, a musical/play director. The scandal was about seeing them together, going to each others houses and actually staying for a long time. The sound of the accusation of them sleeping together because of this arose and it not only affected Akimoto Sayaka personally but also her career. With the explanations going on, it was taken note that there were no sexual relationship with the two but pure business. According to Sayaka from her message on ALL NIGHT NIPPON (shown below + translations), she was only asking Ouji to help with her acting.

“I am responsible for the earlier report about the rumor with Hiroi Ouji-san. He is the stage director who I respect, I have asked Hiroi-san for help on stage performance of “Izumi Kyouka” since this summer. I’ve been to his house, and he has been to my house. I did not think anything of it, because Hiroi-san lives with his daughter, and I live with Umeda Ayaka. Moreover, since Hiroi-san is older than my father, I have never thought of him as a male. The day, we promised to have dinner together for discussions about acting, but my work finished too late, therefore he came over to my house. We kept talking about acting, but he fell asleep after a while, so I and Ume-chan decided to let him keep sleeping. I am woeful that it sounds like I’m making excuses. I’m sorry for all the fans who support me, and also for AKB members… I’m sorry. This became such a big issue, and it is all my fault. I should be the role model for other members, but I’m not qualified as a captain anymore. Therefore, I will resign as the captain of team K.”


Nothing seemed wrong to the two on doing this kind of business. Because on the way I see it, based on both parties sentiments, both had agreed to see each other just for Sayaka to learn more of acting. As Sayaka had said, they were both not alone in the house whenever they see each other. If they were to sleep together and all those things, they would have done it in private. In the case of Sayaka, Umeda Ayaka was with her and was the one responsible on telling Sayaka not to wake Ouji up to send him home. In the case of Ouji, he lived with his daughter.

Anyway, all is done. Each party had explained themselves and for what happened, I think Sayaka had already given herself a cruel punishment. As we can see, she is happy as the leader of Team K. She led them with all her might. That’s why we say she is “perfect” for the position and not only us fans had seen it but also every AKB48 member. In respect to Sayaka’s decision, we should keep supporting her. I will of course. ☺

To give comfort to Sayaka, loveandcoffee from Stage48, has planned a project to let Sayaka know how we support and believe in her. Please visit this link (below) to see the instructions for the sending of letters. If you don’t have a scanner, you could just type it in microsoft word, print screen, edit it a little bit in either photoscape or photoshop (add pictures, etc.) and send it to loveandcoffee. I had already sent mine and will let you guys see it as an example. For Filipino’s, please send your letters before 5:55am tomorrow.
