    I don't really see what's wrong with that since they're idols. They're supposed to appeal to fans. I think it would be ludicrous to assume that the personalities we see actually match them 100% off stage. I'm sure even Miichan is a little bit different on stage and behind the scenes when there are not documentary cameras around. Developing a character (even if it's a fishing/sucking up character) is work imo.

    Yeah I do think Miichan and Yukirin get along and consider each other friendly colleagues, but it's not a deep friendship. At least that's the impression I get.

    I think Dutchie was saying that she was sucking up to seniors not even in her team (e.g., Sasshi), not appealing to fans. Here is what you wrote: "for approaching their seniors and cozying up to them."

    Of course it is hard to make friends with team mates if you are never in the theater, even to practice.

    I don't have much problems with fishing, Yamauchi Suzuran is a known fisher, I like her just fine :)
    And sscrla was right, I was referring to the interaction with the senpai, but as I said, it's just my impression and it's mostly irrational



    Miichan promoting HerLipTo, because you've got to support your friends :)

    ======================
    これからことあるごとにこのワンピースを着ていると思いますがよろしくお願いします。もちろんHer rip toです。 今日もお酒を飲みませんでした(236日目)
    ---------------------------------------
    I think that I wear this dress every time in the future, but I would appreciate your favor (opinion?). Of course Her lip to. I didn't drink alcohol today (236th day)
    ---------------------------------------
    'ワンピース' wanpiisu? ... that bring back memories of a 14 year old Miichan in her Aitakatta episode :)

    but don't you think Miichan is getting more stylish?

    Opinions of fans who voted for Miichan in the Bunshun 'election'
    (and google translate messed up the subject in almost every sentence using 'I' in stead of 'she', I tried to correct most of it)
    ================================================
    「みーちゃんは色々あったけどなんだかんだ嫌いにはなれない推し。ずっと頑張っててほしい」(33・女性)

    「一期生の時から見ていて色々とお騒がせメンバーですが、つい応援したくなる(^^) 高飛車じゃない感じがとても好印象。トークがとても上手で、いじられても笑いで返すのがとても上手なので、AKBを卒業してもタレントとして上手に芸能界を生きていけそうでずっと応援してます」(30・女性)

    「歌もダンスもトークも全部出来るし、かわいいところが大好き」(17・女性)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    “There were various Mi-chans, but I can't hate it. I hope you keep on doing it.” (33, female)

    “I've been watching all the members since you wwre a first-year student, but I want to cheer for myself (^^) You feel like you're not a high-ranking car(?). you are very good at talking and it's very nice to laugh and give back Because you are good at graduating from AKB, you seem to be able to live in the entertainment world as a talented person and I will continue to support you” (30, female).

    "You can sing, dance, talk, and love cute things." (17, female)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I haven't checked te opinions about the other members, but I noticed all three fans are female, to be honest I think for Miichan's future that's a good thing, a better base to build on.

    btw ... if I only put the somewhat confusing sentence in google translate on its own I get:
    高飛車じゃない感じがとても好印象
    Very good impression that it is not a high jump
    which still doen't make much sense to me :)


    ow, and Miichan ranked 46th ... but I long ago stopped caring about rankings

    Take parts and put into Jisho.

    高飛車 - high-handed; domineering; on one's high horse

    but it was followed by じゃない - not

    So she is not stuck up.

    that I should have known ...and actually even know (sort of) :)

    i-adjectives, na-adjectives ... my brain hurts :/

    anyway ... yeah, I never had the idea that Miichan is stuck up, being bullied in school and her career in AKB took care of that I guess (although I'm sure she is aware (and proud) of her comedic talent)


    It seems this week's video will be the first Miichan edited herself"
    https://twitter.com/chan__31/status/1289789083028316160
    ===================================
    お、おわったぁぁぁぁぁぁぁぁ 初めての、YouTubeの動画編集、たった今終わりました... トラブルがなければ今夜アップされると思います。どうしても観て欲しいよぅ(/ _ ; )ぜひチャンネル登録をして待っていてください... 長い戦いだったぁぁぁぁぁあ 日常でやってる人まじすげぇぇげがが
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Oooooooooooooooooooooah, the first YouTube video editing, it's just over... If there is no trouble, I think it will be uploaded tonight. I really want you to see it (/ _ ; ) Please subscribe and wait... It's been a long battle.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    ow ... and it's up


    And I think Miichan is going full on for the female demographic as it's another makeup video :)
    Maybe she'll become a ファッションリーダー (Fashion Leader) after all ;)

    well, maybe a fashionista ... not a leader, as she seems to be following some online instructions

    ow, and more confirmation she got her YouTube 100k subscriber award
    [​IMG]
    (and as a lot of photographers .... he didn't notice his own reflection (been there done that) ...)

    2 random remarks about her outro:
    1. let's just say is, the pic she uses is kinda cheeky. Miichan, hair and scissors ... :)
    2. she hums 私は私 .. even though she said she didn't want included in her graduation concert.
    Humming version is actually quite nice btw

    and 145k subscribers ...


    and ... I of course didn't read the Video title
    【初めての編集】峯岸みなみが桐谷美玲さんになるまで【ものまねメイク】
    [First editing] Until Minami Minegishi becomes Mirei Kiritani [Mimicry Makeup]

    Mirei Kiritani is an actress, model and news anchor Miichan got compared to recently by Lilli Franky in the Yahoo Japan article I posted about a few days back

    I don't see the resemblance, tbh, but I she does remind me of another (ex)AKB member ... but I can't remember her name:
    [​IMG]

    ow, and I should of course add, good job on editing! :)

    ^ well, that was a good hint to tell me to catch up on Miichan's instagram

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    s
    econd pic ... I'll repeat, no one can pout as good as Miichan can :)

    and as I was visiting flickr anyway ... some random pics with Miichan in them
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm guessing the first one is Tomichin's graduation concert? because it has Acchan and a short haired Miichan.
    Second is Miichan promoting JKT in Jakarta


    and there I thought it was a slow news day :)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    there's a certain something about Japanese women in Yukata ... :) and that blue is glorious

    Well, Miichan seems to enjoy every minute of it :)

    Video has hashtags:
    #峯岸みなみ、#AKB48、#踊ってみた、
    #Minami Minegishi, #AKB48, #I tried to dance,

    Miichan doesn't try, she just does

    and one of the perks of an original member, you get to borrow the original costume
    and furthermore, you get Oshima Yuko (大島) to coach you

    It was Yuko, I normally ignore the large walls of text as half of it is Kanji (and I'm not able to read these)...... but the text at 3:59 ends with 大島 優子 ...
    (well, I do recognize two kanji in there 大 = o or dai, 子 = ko)

    「私も踊りた」と
    Watashi mo odorita to
    'I also danced' and
    スタジオに遊びに来た大島 優子
    Sutajio ni asobi ni kita oshima yoku
    Oshima Yuko came to play in the studio

    and subsequent remarks by the coach are labeled Yuko, and it is indeed her voice ...


    O, I should add, it's a real shame you barely get to see Miichan in the UZA PV .... even less in the Dance Version :/

    Sometimes I wish i could have selective amnesia so i could experience hearing/watching the UZA video for the first time again. It's of the few musical moments in my life that was literally jaw-dropping.

    That's the theme name. Japanese YouTuber always use 'I tried~ (〜てみた)' to indicate the theme. You can check all dance video --- it's all 踊ってみた. There're also 歌ってみた (Singing) 食べてみた (Eating) etc.

    You missed い.

    「私も踊りたい」とスタジオに遊びにきた大島優子
    Watashi mo Odoritai to Studio ni Asobi ni Kita Oshima Yuko
    "I also want to dance", said Yuko who also come to the studio.

    Let's do an instagram update
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Not all of them are new .. and that melon bag I've definitely seen before :)
    I like the hat :).... Miichan always looks good with hats or caps


    and Miichan's Imōto Miki-chan opted for the same kind of higlights in her hair it seems ... a bit more extreme though
    [​IMG]

    and ... Miichan's UZA video is nearing the 900k views, while her BEGINNER video has reached 1.7m views
    'ordinary' videos, ( well, Miichan videos are never 'ordinary') average in the range from 100k to 200k for Miichan, while colabs with ex-members perform a bit better (unless it's Sasshii, then they perform a lot better).

    150k subscribers ... so, even with all the competing AKB member channels, she isn't doing all that bad :)
    (otoh, in a way YouTube probably suites Miichan's personality better ... just keep the scissors locked away somewhere safe ;) )

    and an instagram story (which seem to be popular but are kinda annoying imho)

    He publishes a study guide on Amazon for those who want to go back to study and has an interview from Miichan and its price is ¥ 1,650.

    She has a special interviewi, talks about when she passed her audition to AKB48 at the age of 13 and has been active as a student since first year.

    After graduating from school, she studied at the correspondence high school, where she was able to combine her studies and her idol occupation.

    While acting like a popular idol, It is said that there were difficult moments, talks about how she continued her activities and studies without giving up.

    --------------------------------------

    I still remember when Miichan announced that had approved the high school at a concert, she wore a band, the accompanied Takamina and Kojiharu while the public applauds. :cute:

    In one of the documentaries 'To be continued', Miichan stated that:
    "High schoolers are all vexing about what to study now, but I don't have that problem. I'm just putting all my focus on AKB"

    she continued with:
    "When I become an old lady, I will definitely feel that AKB was all my youth"

    and concludes that in ten years time she'll definitely not be a part of AKB anymore as she'll be 28
    that was in 2010 ... it's 2020 now .... and with the corona virus not under control, it just might be that she'll be proven wrong about that

    today was day 250 since her graduation announcement, not a drop of alcohol since then.
