    @ils411, as someone new to Paruru and having watched her movies, I'd like to ask you what you think of her as an actress.

    @sscrla
    Thanks for that

    @Madoka
    The order of movies/shows of Prauru that I've watched goes like this

    1st Exposure - Haunted Campus
    Thought she was cute here and left a mental note in my head to look her up

    2nd Exposure - Shiritsu Bakaleya
    was really just looking for something to watch and watched this out of boredom. While watching this I went "hey! that's her!"... (I never did look her up after watching Haunted Campus. funny how things worked out. Its like, I was destined to be a fan of hers )

    3rd Ghost Theater
    I searched for this coz well, Paruru..

    She sucked in Shiritsu Bakaleya in 2012. And by suck, I mean, her acting was flat as a pancake. Her acting in Haunted campus was ok, but it wasn't best actress material. She was average at best, but if you compare her performance in Haunted Campus to her acting in Shiritsu, the difference is night and day. I don't know if she had acting lessons, but her improvement is very noticeable. I'm no expert, but I thought she improved her acting and was better in Haunted Campus than in Ghost theater also. A few more gigs and I'd say she can become a good actress or if she takes up formal acting lessons.

    I'm going to start Majisuka Gakuen 3 later and I think this came before Shiritsu, so i'm expecting her to be god awful.

    MG3 was a learning process. Try watching as I recommended MG4. Its actually a good watch.

    I cant find it :cry:
    I've found lots of sources for a lot of episodes with eng subs but the one with Paruru is no where to be found (ep24 Music Box).

    Also, I found out that this girl is into deleting entries in all her social accounts. I don't know if its calculated but it does gives her more privacy to live her life as normal as possible. This makes it harder for me to learn about her, but I approve of this. Smart girl this Paruru.

    But while looking for this elusive ep24, I stumbled upon a video where she along with 5 others were sent to Korea for some military training.. my reaction to this is, WTF?! What is wrong with AKB management? Are they total retards? I've read up enough on Paruru that I know that she has asthma. The last thing you want to do is force someone with asthma to do extraneous activities beyond her capabilities as it can trigger it. I know, I have asthma myself and it sucks big time. Sure, I could feel great and do some activities, but when I exceed my limit, BAM!

    It just broke my heart to see not only Paruru, but all these girls being subjected to those "training" activities in the video, and for what? Just to boost their stock/popularity by just a bit if at all? I understand these girls have to put in lots and lots of work just to try and stay relevant in a massive group, but this is just wrong wrong wrong.

    I couldn't understand a single thing but their faces, their tears.. it says it all... what jackasses makes young girls do tumbles in the ocean where their heads are submerged under water where one wrong breath could end up in them drowning? Soldiers, sure, Idols? WTF?! ...I'll stop here as I can go on and on with my displeasure of this..

    Anyways, can anyone tell me who the other 5 girls are and if they are still in AKB? These girls have officially also gained my support.

    Anyone knows where to watch the full Eng sub of Paruru's Nashigorenka? It has 10 eps, but I've just watched 6 so far because there's no Eng sub for the rest :((((

    AKS (the company that manages the 48 groups) would do that. Welcome to the world of neglecting members to get better single sales, girls getting injured by wrestling for a TV show, and a group where if you aren't popular, you can't get caught dating, but if you are popular, it won't matter to much.

    But besides that, AKB and the other 48 groups are relatively normal, to Japanese standards (in my opinion).

    @mbah13 Thanks. Apparently, they've all graduated except for Yamauchi Suzuran.

    @YagiNako Them people are sick. But hey, them Japanese have some strange taste, compared to my normal norm of course.

    @Merlin54 When they say Lotto, this is lottery "lottery" right? as in, win moneyz? Paruru just looks lovely in anything. Honestly, I've never thought anyone could look sexy in a kimono (yukata?) and never understand why people think so until now. Paruru in kimono has help me see the light.

    @YukoOshimafan Thanks. Everyone has been very nice and friendly and I'm liking it here. By Oshi you mean fan right? Then yes. Just recently learned about Paruru and I've been actively trying to catchup on everything about her. Too bad her recent dramas aren't subbed coz my Japanese are limited to 1 word greetings. I hope some subbing group picks up blanket cats and Nashi goren-ka.

    Hi @ils411 and welcome to Paruru's thread.

    Yes, this is a big 'win-money' lottery; its official name is Takarakuji and it's run by the state. It's drawn 4 times a year and the jackpot is 500 million yen. This link, in English, explains it quite well.
    Paruru also helped promote the previous draw, 'The Dream Lottery', where she wore jewelry worth 700 million yen. She later said 'it was quite heavy but she'd like to wear it when she got married' !
    There is a video here
    And Paru in a yukata...oh yes!

    Edit:- pic from the Official Lottery site, Paruru is center...
