I think it's okay if you don't like certain members but calling them ugly or disrespectful things is way too much.
I'm sorry, I'm indeed upset about heavy push they get & in my point of view, they're indeed not pretty.
Few days ago I just found that Ryoka has OA on Line, I examined it & realized that she was actually pretty.
Yeah, that's understandable, we all have our preferences
Maybe I'm influenced by 2 of my friends:
An avid HKT48 fan but hates Hana, he's a youtuber and once upon a day he made a video that explicitly bashed Hana. His oshimen is Aoi.
A Team 8 DD but hates Yuiyui. What in his mind is that Yuiyui should grad ASAP and become like of Kito Momona.
^ Get away from haters. Nothing good comes from them.
I just had an emotional breakdown on the stress of AP classes, hopefully I can pace myself better on homework and such
Hope this doesn't discourage you and you can salvage the moment as getting to know your limits a bit better...
Getting back on the same horse that threw you is hard, but it's everything.
Thanks, I hope I can push myself more but not as much as I was before to learn more(and not just for those AP tests at the end)
Aki-P's written many lyrics about unrequited love aka kataomoi but for me this is the most kataomoi lyric ever.
So... I was out with my wife tonight for a nice dinner at a fave sushi place we'd not been to in a while... watching my fat intake as usual (groan)...
I have genetic hypertriglyceridemia, which apparently is common among field-laborer descendants here
I'd looked at my phone, where I keep track of my day's intake, to see where I was at. And apparently I'd made a mistake. My wife punched my thigh and asked why I was phubbing her all of a sudden. After wincing off her extended-knuckle quad punch she uses on me when she's ticked I told her that I'd added some fat grams from yesterday back into today's intake (which is why today felt so crummy, come to think -- I was running on fumes). That meant I had more than 70% rather than 28% left for fat intake. I could actually have dessert -- like, a real dessert -- and not go over my medical advice for max amt.
She looked at me, and eyebrows went up (note: she did not take back her punch ) -- let's order, she said. Haupia (Haw'n coconut dessert), green tea ice cream, chocolate ganache cake, tiramisu -- things I haven't eaten since 2013, for some -- were suddenly game...
I ordered coffee ice cream. I dunno... ever since I can remember (and can recall as early as 4 yo), I've been in love with it. In fact as a single-digits kid of maybe 8 or 9, I could finish a whole half-gallon by myself. Boy this was gonna be good... and it was
We went home full of sushi and ganache cake (her) and Kona coffee ice cream, hit the showers, and hit the bed. It's now just after 10 at night, about an hour after getting under the covers...
Feel like my gutknots are gonna wind up, and punch a hole clean through this toilet. Been here a good 20 mins. My wife, no surprise, is laughing at me... and well tbh... I'm cracking up too
Goddamn it. I dunno what I was expecting... being on a strict 50g/day fat cap since 2014 (my second -- and last -- attack of pancreatitis)... not eating ice cream, chili, alcohol, anything cream-based or deep-fried, including my absolute fave dish in the world, chicken & shrimp fried rice. Then having a bowl of liquid dairy fat and sugar, flavored with coffee...
I get a blood test in less than a week... if my levels are fine on my meds... I may give myself a cheat day once a month.
Yesterday I joined a Line group, it's about astronomy. I'm pretending as a highschool student who aspires to attend a top university in Japan majoring in astronomy/astrophysics. I said because I like anime why I'm targeting Japan. I didn't say I like idol. I asked other members which one is more complicated to learn, physics or Japanese language, most replied Japanese language is more complicated to learn. Yeah, I'm pretending to be a highschool student, I'd be doomed if they ask why I don't participate on astronomy olympiad.
There're some members that I don't like to see in bikinis. They are Sasshi, Yuihan and Hinatan. I can't explain what it is, but it's like I were looking at my own sisters. (I don't have sisters at all, so it gets even harder to explain it.) I don't have problems with Rikachan tho. On the contrary, the more she shows her "Rikas" the better.
Same with Hinachan >__<b
But I don't mind some Yumirins
See, I don't find Rika's bikini figure impressive at all, comparatively. And I love me some NGT. I do like Rika's personality (to a point ) and did think right from 2015 that she'd be one of their headliners... but her gravure's not tippy-top of my list. Just the opposite -- I love Hinatan's bikini gravure, as I do Ogiyuka's, which is *much* better than anyone would've believed -- much like everything else about Ogiyuka, actually.
But you're right -- Sasshi's like an older sister, even though she could in theory be my daughter. Yuihan's in a similar situ, being rather regal + matriarchal vs. center-sexy. Sasshi's appeal here may also be influenced by her leadership and business acumen.
Members I find hard to see in string undies: those with all-waist and no hips (Ota Yuuri is a prime example), and any member with the JDM mainstream gravure curse: curvy and nicely-shaped, right down to the hip joint... then falling vertically to the ground, thigh gap almost equidistant from sit-bone to heel. I do prefer Western curvier thighs that close the gap with healthy muscle/fat ratio. Mayu, Yukirin/Sakura, Mion, Hinatan, and precious few others have lucked out genetically and nurture-wise. Haruu didn't, but with enough determination (and growing out of her eating habits), is now amazing in a bikini. Kojiharu is one of the most overrated (ex-)members in a bikini of them all.
Yeah, I wouldn't want to see Piyo in a bikini... at least not in my mind currently. It's just not on-message with Hinapiyo©-brand. Perhaps someone with a legendary eye for tasteful gravure may change my mind... but I'm not holding my breath.
Yumi... I'm torn about. Yes she certainly has the body for it... but I suppose the attraction goes a bit further than if she just shows me skin, so it'd almost be like a dash of sister-y mace sprinkled in my eyes.
@stormy When I dragged Rikachan in my post, it was just to say that I don't have problems to see her in bikini like I have with other members I mentioned, regardless of her gravure. Even though, I had to say that I still prefer hers over Ogiyuka's, Ogiyuka has too much of "dachshund" body imo (Sakura and Yukirin too, but Yukirin covers it with sex-appeal and other attributes). Hinatan, on the other hand, I haven't been able to graduate from this image of hers yet:
Well, since we're already in a confession thread, so what the hell, lol ... I confess I'm not really fond of Japanese girls in bikini. Maybe I'm too used to western women body shape, that I find Japanese girls too plain (I'm not saying which is superior, just saying my own tastes). Thus, I know nothing about Japanese gravures too. Sure they can be cute, pretty, even have nice boobs and a general good figure but almost all of them fail when it comes to ... butt (I like to say that it's like they were hit by a flying pan there which made it flattened) One of the few (ex) members on top of my head that still had a pretty butt was Nagao Mariya (again I'm talking only about body shape and not gravure quality). And Kojiharu, well, you can't deny her, the girl is stunning!
I don't want to see Hinachan in bikini either. But I'd love to see some shots in swimsuits on a beach like Yuiyui had in Renacchi SSK photobook. It would be cute!
@Humbucker Well, to each his own. I'll leave some pertinent images to view if you wish:
This is the Hinatan gravure that changed my mind, as I used to think of her similarly to you... but mostly the last one.
As you can see, she has plenty back there. And in quite fetching proportions in places most idols sorely lack it.
BTW... I hope you like Mayu. Because if Mayu falls into your 'frying-pan-flat' category, I throw my hands up.
Obligatory Nagao Mariya gravure, post-AKB. Because when you've worked out your butt for your entire AKB career... this is what happens when your metabolism slows down *juuuust* perfectly:
I swear she has to have some Latina genes in there somewhere. From Portuguese traders back in the Tokugawa Era perhaps?
Actually... I have red hair in my beard, and half my genes come from Kumamoto. I am otherwise 100% Japanese (as is my better half). Coincidence?
I can't see that butt beating Ogiyuka's or Hinatan's. It's the very flat butt, with no muscular definition outside the sit bone, that's a known JDM female characteristic. But hey, JDM men dig it and vote with cash, who are we to say they're wrong?
That's an important point!
Stop showing me Hinatan's pics!!! XD
I agree that Hinatan's got a great body, but it's like your friends coming to your place and saying: "Whoo ... your sis is hot!" about your teenager sister. That's my feeling.
I hope this pic isn't inappropriate or offensive to be posted here, just for sake of explanation.
Spoiler: For educative matters. lol
I think there're three points which make a nice butt:
1. A definite curve along waist and butt (Is there any more appropriate word for butt? My English is not good)
3. Lower lines (the horizontal lines between butt and legs)
Most of Japanese girls don't have the lower lines (3) but Mayuyu does have beautiful ones, and volume (2) too. However, her butt fails for not having a definite curve along waist and butt (1), so that I can't say it's all great (It's very good tho). I think it's even harder to find Japanese girls with nice waist curves than with lower lines. Nagao Mariya doesn't have so definite (1) and (3) but she compensates it with a damn volume (2). lol
And yeah, I said Kojiharu is stunning in general, but I agree that butt is veeeeeery off. It fails (1), (2) and (3). And I think her kouhais said it looked like an old woman's butt in Ariyoshi Kyowakoku or another show.
Ogiyuka on Sekai wa Doko Made Aozora na no ka MV makes me want to chase my teenage dream again. It was that I wanted to be like Jonny Greenwood. ._.
Just found out that if an indie musician is successful, can have higher net worth than Sasshi, most paid idol. Example, Neil Halstead of Slowdive makes $1M a year, Sasshi makes $600k a year. More famous names like Thom Yorke (Radiohead is an indie band since In Rainbow) & Alex Turner can have much higher. Um wait, maybe because they're western musicians?
Well, indie musician is my preferred job beside astronomer. Wish could be both tho. (｡ŏ﹏ŏ)
