Dasu ranked 6th in SSK.
1 Rank climb, way to go Dasu!
For those of you who knows about or want to know more about the recent arrest of a supposedly diehard Da~su fan, Conjyak has translated a yahoo Japan article regarding this guy threats and arrest.
This seems like a link to an old video. Could anyone explain what's going on? Thanks a bunch.
Furuhata was unable to talk well during a zero position episode where the theme was talk show. So she was frustrated with herself after theu film/live stream it. And kaotan film a discussion that she had with dasu and Churi and a staff member in the dressing room. This was sometimes in late or mid May.

Dasu was on this week's Episode of AKB48 ANN along with Jurina, Sarina, Nao, and Churi
Dasu on Downtown DX 2 hours SP
Dasu is featured in the latest Road to WIP Climax
Also she officially has her match for the WIP Climax.
Churi, Katomina, Yumoto vs. Dasu, Shiichan, and Chiyori
Akarin was in Busu Television eps 28 and 29 (with Kaotan)
It was freaking HILARIOUS
so Dasu said that she was originally a senbatsu member on High Tension but was dropped because the management said she was ugly(?)
and also she said something about the girls making fun of her looks and only asking her to take pictures but not be in them
I saw this story on Twitter. I really want more clarification on this. This is outright MEAN. I've been highly critical of Idols in the past but I've never called ANY of them "ugly".
Yes, I've criticized many - but I still find Geesh, Oya Shizuka, & Takamina VERY cute! - not, "pity cute". I find them rather attractive & recognize why they have fans. Even though I despise the "danso look"- it's because I know the girls can be so much prettier being "feminine"- it seems like a waste of a pretty face to be "Boyish" ya know?- Clearing this up for any NaySayers
I was under the impression "High Tension" was picked to suit girls Paruru was 'Friends' with. I'll be honest & say I don't know if Paruru had any interaction w/ her BUT, I never remember Paruru saying anything mean or discouraging about her. Dasu was in "Top 16" after KNP (Paruru was like rank 7?) and Dasu would go out her way to be nice to the younger Idols (back when new Team 4 was very New)- It's possible Paruru WANTED her in the "High Tension" Senbatsu and then got 'Over-ruled'??? Jurina didn't get much air-time in that vid as I recall. Less than usual anyway.
I've been a Dasu fan since she got into Senbatsu in "KFC" - I liked her & Aya Shibata together. I was really saddened by her meltdown 2 elections ago (Even I counted her "out") - but she came back even more FIERCE- She deserves Total Respect from AKS and Any Sister group. If this is True that AKI-P or AKS (itself) dissed her for something this shallow it's just another reason AKS doesn't want to please the fans & plays 'favs'.
I hope someone gets to the bottom of this. This is down right cruel. I remembered reading her account of a skin condition that she's allergic to many "chemicals" in make-ups? & sometimes has had to go to the doctors for skin rashes? YET, she's such a trooper & tries so hard. I've been thinking about her all day - she doesn't deserve anymore pain. If she's really getting dissed by Management & Idols I want names because SKE & AKS is LUCKY she's stuck around as long as she has.
There's probably only 5-6 girls in the HISTORY of AKS that could compete w/ a top Kpop group - Suda is one just on talent, dancing, & smile alone. I want to know who is dissing Dasu- she's #6? Respect that if nothing else.
Is that the reason why she kept mentioning being ugly during her SSK speech? That's a shame. To each their own, but she's pretty and has a great smile.
Well we can stamp that theory out right away because Paruru is definitely not "Friends" with Komiharu.
What does KomiHaru have to do w/ Dasu?? Sides, KomiHaru was actually IN the Senbatsu (the Expanded one) for "High Tension". KomiHaru isn't even involved & I didn't even mention her- Why bring her up?.
Call me crazy, but a think Dasu is super pretty.
Isn't this a little bit overplayed on her behalf? Just like Sasshi is playing with her hetare/not kawaii-gimmick.
That's the point. You made an assertion that the senbatsu for High Tension was "handpicked" with members who Paru was "friends" with. @Voightkampff was pointing out that Paru isn't friendly with Komiharu, yet Komiharu was in that senbatsu, which kinda flies against that theory.
And I ALSO think that Dasu is really cute, and there is a huge queue at every handshake event that would agree as well. I'm not sure what she is going on about, after all she IS the most popular SKE member not named Jurina. I guess that DOES play into the theory that the funniest people are deep down the saddest...or something.
She's was definitely not "playing" in this context, this topic in particular was discussed on her eps of Busu Television. If you've been following her closely for a while you'd know some of these things have been going on for a while, such as having them (Dasu and Kaotan) shoot scenes and not even having the recordings be saved. Her being on this show and talking about these things simply confirmed what we all suspected all along.
While she jokes around about her looks often, the comments definitely hurt her and I'm sure she would rather not have to "joke" about them on a lot of her TV appearances. That itself is evident enough from her pinned tweet (http://akanemachurida.tumblr.com/post/159376965319/suda-twitter-170325-in-the-past-i-asked-some), though she's gone a bit more in depth about it on her mail. It's not exactly a "character" she wants to play up, per say. She's actually quite hard on herself at times. Her popularity has a huge part in a lot of these comments as well; though they weren't as harsh, I guess, before her kami 7 jump last year. Basically every appearance she makes these days they play the "ugly but popular" card on her, which she has also expressed her sadness about more than once. I know I myself would love to see this title die as she should be known for something much more positive and helpful to her self-esteem. Also I'm more than sure PRR had nothing to do with this whole HT fiasco, as Dasu considers her a friend and they've hung out outside of work even after her graduation.
Sorry if I sounded kinda ranty but I just wanted to clear some things up, if I could at all
Thank you for clarifying.
I think the reduction of real people to just a few, possibly only one trait, which is/are then repeated and over-exaggerated at nauseam, plays a big role in (especially japanese) entertainment industry. Each successful idol has a few key features for which she is known ("reaction queen", "ikemen idol", "idol cyborg"), the often heard and vastly overplayed "charme point", of which every japanese girl seems to be obsessed with.
Ironically for Dasu, her "charme point" is not really charming. I can see how hurtful that can be (because i think Dasu is pretty expressive), but her best bet right now is to just play along and enjoy the massive popularity of the now.
I remember Tani being mocked for her appearance but she just went with the flow, and it did not hurt her. Kaotan is another example. And Sasshi is always joking about her kawaii-ness being so inferior.
On the other hand, she shouldn't be obsessed with her looks if she is basically one of the best fishers and handshakers in the history of the group. That said, i think she is kinda hot (like reachable hot, not far distant hot), plus she has a glorious backside, which she knows very well and uses for good measure.
One thing i always enjoyed about AKB48 is that they recruit mostly girls which are attractive, but not too attractive. I would not go visit <insert random super model here> to shake hands with her, because i would always be aware of the fact that we just exchanged money for attention. Like i knew that <insert random super model here> would never ever speak to me without the transaction.
