I posted a few times about them in the Akihabara threads, not much animo then but they are improving so maybe a it will catch on now (there is a small thread on stage48 also)

Massive number of episodes downloads are available from silverbolt on mediafire:
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=b5c3958e5944bd57ab1eab3e9fa335ca9bd2ee5b33eac1cc

And there is a thread on JPM.

I got word about them from a bud a week ago or so, but never checked 'em out. Guess this is my chance. Let's just say they definitly seem interesting and i'll be checking them out as soon as I can. Name's easy to remember atleast. :D

Thanks for the info and the link and stuff guys.

Post by: StreakInTheSky on February 26, 2008, 10:03:55 AM
Not sure if there was a thread but I remember seeing stuff of them a while back o_o
Not sure if it was from this forum though.

I haven't seen anything to really get me into them, but lets see what happens if I get more exposure.

Post by: doinkies on February 27, 2008, 01:16:18 AM
I first heard of Idoling!!! in 2007 when Silverbolt began uploading Idoling!!! episodes to JPOPSUKI. I watched the eps and liked them, so doinkies ended up watching more of their show and listening to their music. Their appearance on HEYx3 with AKB48 was great, the banter between the two groups was hilarious to watch.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: frblckstr1 on February 27, 2008, 07:22:41 AM
Yup, I also missed thisone on jpopsuki:

Dunno if anyone else noticed this but Charon from Jpopsuki put up Takiguchi's idol DVD "ミラの告白"

I do not expect them to have IV's...

For those interested in Idoling!!!:

Acchi Muite Pie! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/)

This blog is run by Silverbolt, who posts a lot of Idoling!!!-related stuff on JPOPSUKI, and it has news and information as well as direct downloads through his Mediafire site and some pics from photoshoots too.

Some of them, even after one and a half year still do not sing to well...

There shows are to talkative for me, and now with all the new members I only pick some shows with games from the list silverbolt has.
They are different in some things they do compared to H!P or AKB48.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on July 09, 2008, 12:31:33 PM
Yeah, it does take some knowledge to fully enjoy their TV show when they're not doing physical stuff. If you're not too keen on downloading the shows, just watch Idoling!!! Nikki that airs every Friday. Downloads of it shows up irregularly, but still.

And Idoling!!! being different is exactly why I'm into them. AKB are still on the verge, but H!P is forever stuck being the pure infallible idols.

Uh, we need more activity at JPH!P - cuz I sure don't visit anywhere else.

Sorry, it wasn't my meaning to lure them over to JPM, but there's really no better place to discuss the group other than in that particular thread. :lol:
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: frblckstr1 on July 10, 2008, 06:41:18 PM
I think with AKB48 and H!P you can see that the origin is from singers, then idols.

With Idoling!!! its the other way around (remember the ninja's with pie's? :) )

Another samples where there games are different:

I wish I knew much mroe about Idoling than I actually do, from what I've seen and heard I'm very intrigued but in all honesty I've found it impossible to get hold of much stuff at all. Been searching for a while but still determined to try and get to know a bit more about them.

Yeah I'd noticed it thanks and it helped a bit but everywhere I've looked for actual stuff by or featuring them I draw up blank. I've read up a little bit on the members and history and the like but unfortunately that only goes so far.

Thanks :)

Just learning which name goes with what face and stuff.

I discovered Nao Asahi has the same birthday as me (except for the year)!

Current top #3 fav list  (after a couple of hours researching :lol:)
1. Erika Tonooka
2. Rurika Yokoyama
3. Noa Asahi

Also grabbed their album. Not really feeling it atm, but it might grow on me.

Gotta say, this group is marketed somewhat strange. Their songs are quite happy sounding, some of them are pretty young, but a lot of them have quite daring photoshoots in various magazines and IVs. I mean, nothing that strange, we've seen it in H!P and AKB48, I just didn't expect that from this group for some reason. Not complaining or anything..  :lol: My friends and I are about to place an order at amazon, we do this once or twice a year to safe shipping costs. I was thinking about picking up Tokooka's PB, but it has I AM SEVENTEEN as a title.  :lol: I can't buy that.

I see you went for the most orthodox ones, although Asahi has started to "blossom" lately, in an Idoling!!! kind of way. :lol: I had the same problem with the album too, at first, but it totally grew on me. The remix and the weird intro song are the only ones I dislike.

And about the gravure thing, since all of them are from different agencies it's just their way of promoting them. Idoling!!! has nothing to do with that really.

Thanks to influence, I decided to give these girls a chance and I'm really liking them.

My favourite? ERIKA :heart:

They've got a new single coming out on the 29th, right?

I like the fact that her eyes actually look like this: ^ ^  :lol:

I dlded a random episode and she pwned everybody in shitori! She shines in every episode  :lol:

CDJapan is so slow on getting the calendar shipped  :angry:

Idoling stuff is pretty hard to find online. Only one page or so of vids on youtube. Kinda strange considering they are on tv quite a lot and have a bunch of live dvds out already. Not to mention those dvd boxes where they play games on a beach 9at least, I think that's the content of those dvds, not sure haha)

^that site is great. They put up the Tonooka Birthday celebration (older Idoling episode), which was kinda strange. She got like a life time supply of sesame seeds?!

The Tonooka calender is great. I received it and came up with an ingenious way of hanging it to my wall without having to tear of the pages. I know it doesn't really matter, I might as well use them as posters, but for now they're still attached. I'll post pics when I feel like it haha.

Watching the TonoTono Smile DVD at the moment. To be honest, I'm a little disappointed by it. [Spoilers ahead.. maybe].
First of all, it's very short (40 minutes plus a small bonus video). Secondly, the content isn't all that interesting. The first part is her relaxing and it has some shameless boob shots. Seriously, they put her boobs in focus like three times in a row. Totally unnecessary.. could have been more classy. The second part consists of her petting a hyperactive poodle. Not only does the dog look ridiculous, it's clear that the dog doesn't want to be there. The next part is Erica as a doll, with a wig on in front some horrid wallpaper doing some poses.
I was hoping for more like a H!P style Alo Hello video or like Acchan's dvd. I want to see what's she's like when she's not on Idoling and to hear her express her opinions on things etc. The part where she made a heart shape cake was kinda cute, but still not that interesting. Near the end is the 'I want to be a princess' part, but it's basically her in what looks like a wedding dress. I've seen scenes like that before so that must be some sort of fetish as well  :P Next, "I want to be a celebrity", which means sitting in a pool wearing a gold bikini. This part lasts much longer than the previous parts. Lastly, we see her in the orange bikini featured on the dvd cover. Couple of minutes of her getting a massage.
Overall, probably not worth the money. HOWEVER, it's Erica so it's still a must have  :lol: Secondly, the box fold out and looks pretty cool. Btw, I didn't buy it (yet?), the video is available on the site in Ayabie's signature  :)


The new Idoling!!! single:

アイドリング!!! 「baby blue」 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3QezwBLiZ0#ws-lq-lq2-hq-vhq-hd)

Cute and soothing song, I like it. I've come to love the album as well.. just took a couple of listens  :)

Well, since Forever Idoling is down I'll just put my report here instead.

2009.04.30 - "baby blue" release event ~サプライズって??~ (A surprise...??)
Participants were everyone but Yazawa and Tonooka.

I bought one copy of the regular version, and got a Maipuru trading card which was awesome. Been a while since my last handshake event, and they just get faster on pushing you forward every time. Sad to miss out on #6 and #7, but Morita was there so it's all good. :lol: My first impression of the new members Ookawa > Hashimoto > Tachibana. All three of them look better up close, though.

The "surprise" was a lottery. 5 of the girls mentioned a random 3-digit number each and the winners got a haiku from an earlier event. The picked members were Rurika > Suu-chan > Fonchi > Ookawa > Amimi, I had #606 so I had no chance of winning there, really...

Also, while lining up before the actual handshake I was standing behind some guy who claimed he did the guitar work for baby blue, in which he added means he's met the members etc. He even showed off he had Tonooka's address registered in his cell phone to the guy standing beside him. I was on the verge of laughing when he said "The girls said they were happy to have met me". Bullshit or the real deal, I guess we'll never know. :lol: I'll try to look out for him in the future.

By the way, my hands smell like idol.

Cool report  :)

Too bad #6 wasn't there.

lol @ the guy showing off. Smells fishy, but seeing people like that is always funny.

Hope to witness a handshake event myself one day. (cough Team A in France cough) You don't get the time to talk to them right? I've been to meet and greet session with bands like Nightwish and Apocalyptica, but I guess this is a somewhat different type of event.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: winner on April 30, 2009, 07:00:25 PM
idol-smell hands?! um...  :P

Q: For this handshake event, how did you join?
Just find out about the date/store details, and get in line (did you wait there hours earlier? any limit to the line?)? Or did you need to buy a product first, and mail-in for a raffle invite and stuff?
Just curious about the difficulty, cos I have no idea. :lol:

I must be the weird one then.
Although Toonoka is high on my chart too, I've had Saya-nee and Endo Mai ranked higher since Silverbolt started uploading Idoling!!! episodes.
And since Saya-nee's graduated :cry:, Maipuru has gotten all my :heart:
Don't know if it's because I see so much potential in her (pidgeon speaking!) or cos my immunity system breaks down with anything that has a "Mai" in it. XD
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on May 01, 2009, 03:46:25 AM
Idoling!!! handshake events are a piece of cake. Check the official site for details, head to the location either in advance or just as they're starting selling depending on if it's a weekday or not. For every CD you buy you get a handshake ticket, but I guess they have to limit that somewhere since someone bought a box on 4/29. :lol:

The problem is the speed of the actual handshaking perhaps. Because of some past idiots they've added more rules and you barely get a second with each member. It was obvious that they were stricter towards people who wore numbered t-shirts yesterday, which doesn't make any sense.

Anyway hell yeah for Maipuru. I don't know why myself but she's been my favorite ever since I got into the group. :cow:

Hope to witness a handshake event myself one day. (cough Team A in France cough) You don't get the time to talk to them right?

If you're fast enough to say something other than "keep up the good work", then it's always worth a try. With them currently being 15 members, though, you're bound to forget half of what you wanted to say. Also, you might want to pick a member with a faster reaction time if you want a witty response. :lol: About AKB, I believe they have individual handshakes? Longer time to talk but you only get to pick one.

As far as I've experienced, Idoling!!! members with fast reaction:
Saya-nee, Miraccho, Yazawa, Rurika, Serina, Amimi

Most of those also have one hell of a grip. :lol:

Thanks for another great report, Ayabie! It's always fun to hear about your Idoling!!! encounters. I'm sure there were a lot of people wearing numbered shirts, but tell me this... Were there people wearing Shinkenger-related clothing? Since Morita was originally not planned to attend that event, I'm leaning towards "no" but I'm not really sure when they decided that she would be attending. I'm sad to hear that they've sped up the handshaking process, though. But, I guess it's inevitable as the group becomes more popular, and more fans start showing up for these events.

As for the new members, I would say Ookawa > Tachibana > Hashimoto. To me, Kaede Hashimoto looks like Serina Nagano, but a little more loli. I'm not a big fan of Nagano or loli, so the combination of the two doesn't really appeal to me. XD But, I still haven't seen enough of the 3rd gen members' personalities yet. The only thing I've really noticed with the new members is that Tachibana already seems incredibly comfortable in front of the camera.

Are you gonna attend any of the other baby blue release events? Or, maybe even the next Hachitama Live? :w00t:
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on May 01, 2009, 02:37:01 PM
Hey Silverbolt, nice to see you posting here!

I didn't notice anything Shinkenger related actually, could also be because it was a normal weekday. And speaking of Morita, they updated the event schedule earlier today again, and apparently she showed up at today's event... meaning I missed out on a full roster.

Yeah, my first impression of Hashimoto was pretty mixed. Serina and her could might as well be sisters. :lol: I was surprised about Tachibana, as well, she sort of has the same smell as Kawamura when she first joined. Should be interesting to see how she'll develop. And for some reason I really like Ookawa already.

I'm planning on going to tomorrow's event, and depending on my schedule I might try and apply as a viewer for the next shooting. I'm kind of hesitant about Hachitama at the moment, seeing as I'm average height and would hate not being able to see anything. :lol: There was a rumor about a 6th live being held in the summer so it's possible I'll just save my money for that.

-- 2009.05.02 - "baby blue" release event
Participants were everyone but Morita.

They updated the site with another "surprise" today - once again a lottery like last time, winners got to take a polaroid picture with all participating members. I had #823 which is just impossible with the way the members are picking the numbers... :P

I miscalculated the time today so I arrived 10 minutes before they started selling, and with today being a Saturday I had to wait in line for 45 minutes, in the heat nonetheless. :lol: Before the handshake event started the usual wheelchair-burden fans got to go first, which resulted in us front row people to get around 15 minutes worth of free time to check out the members. That was quite the experience... Everyone were wearing their Hachitama live numbered shirts and almost everyone wore hotpants. Serina, Yazawa and Ookawa had pigtails.

And by the way, while lining up for the CDs I noticed the guy in front of me was wearing Shinkenger Crocs. :lol:

Anyway, since I was among the first few people I just headed home after I was done shaking hands. Since I have nothing better to do on Golden Week I'm planning on heading tomorrow as well...

-- 2009.05.03 - "baby blue" release event
Participants were everyone but Fonchi and Morita.

Last day of the five-day-streak events. I arrived just in time to get a hold of a CD, different from a whole other bunch of people that lined up just to hear an announcement that they sold out about 90 minutes later. Today is Sakacchi's birthday so there were a lot of weird stuff going on with some of the fans. The members wore the same outfits as yesterday, but with different hairstyles.

Before the handshaking begun they did a polaroid raffle again, but keeping it to 3 people. The last one to announce was Hashimoto's "#121", and while unrelated I was holding on to #1210. After I was done I stayed until the event was over with nothing better to do, but while heading back to the station I happened to look into a passing taxi in which Asahi and two(?) other members were riding. :cow: It went directly to Fuji TV's parking lot so I guess they're really busy today.

Well, that pretty much concludes my reports for the time being. Hopefully I'll get to see them shooting the show in the near future.

News: Seems like our familiar faces are getting a new show.

It sounds like you're having a whole lot of fun over there, Ayabie. Thanks for the reports. I wish I could attend some Idoling!!! events. XD

Of course, someone wears something Shinkenger related when Suu-chan isn't even there. :lol:

I hope you get a chance to go to a recording, because I would really like to hear a report about one. Aside from the Boukenoung episodes, have you ever been to an Idoling!!! TV show recording?

I'll be honest... I'm excited, but a little annoyed by the news of the former Idoling!!! members' new show. With the exception of Koizumi, the members on this new show supposedly left Idoling!!! to pursue bigger and better things. How is a show on a niche channel like Enta!371 bigger and better than Idoling!!!'s TV show? It just doesn't make any sense. I really hope this new show has more than just gravure stuff because I'd hate to see those four great personalities go to waste on a show about other gravure idols. :banghead:

Thanks for the link to the baby blue PV, Ayabie. I'm really loving this song more and more every time I listen to it. :D

Well, since Forever Idoling is down I'll just put my report here instead.

GJ Ayabie!! Don't hold back on your reports, we always wanna know when fellow HiPstaz get close to cute celebs ;)

Hope you get to see some TV shoots!!

And :welcome Silverbolt, nice to see you =D

Nope, I've never really had any time to apply for a recording, but it seems the chance of being picked isn't all that huge so I guess trying wouldn't hurt.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It just seems a little fishy that they get a new show when they clearly stated they had other plans. I also believe this is Zumi's first work since she graduated, apart from the DVD, and I doubt a show on 371 will be any help on Eto becoming an actress.

Same here, baby blue has really grown on me after listening to the studio version. :D What's sad after seeing the PV, though, is the total lack of Suu-chan...

Edit: Well, this was unprofessional...

Suu-chan = Morita Suzuka?
You can just watch Shinkenger eps to see her. The eps are available on the tracker at TVNihon.com

Meantime, does this help?
Not my creation, but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO true.

Yeah, I have no idea what happened. Like Rurika mentioned in an uRa episode, though, a lot of times the members don't even know they're scheduled for something until they check their blog comments. It's possible that it went: fans > Saya-nee > manager > 371? Although it doesn't make much sense...

My personal favorites from the 3rd generation are Ookawa>Kaede-chan>Yurika.I don't like yurika that much because to me,Yurika is not that special to me like the other 2.
oh & I think I'm cursed because every favorite member I've had,suddenly graduated.
Rumi-chan is,was & always will be my favorite member & I often like to tell people about that.

That sure was... The first image was also hosted on 371's web site, wasn't it? Either they're playing a bad joke, or they know something that we don't. I'm hoping it's the latter because I'd really like to see those four on TV again. I really don't think it was a joke, though, because I don't think something like that would make it all the way to 371's web site. There had to have been a reason why someone designed that cover with that text. But, that reason could have been scrapped, resulting in the cover change.

Does anyone happen to know what this is referring to?

I know it's talking about video noise on Season 3, Disc 3. But, I skipped through a bit of disc 3 and didn't notice anything wrong with it. I don't really have a way to exchange my disc 3, but I'm still curious about what that message is referring to.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on May 09, 2009, 02:30:59 PM
It doesn't mention anything else besides the noise. I believe they got a complaint from someone in the fanclub about it, and instead of doing nothing about it things turned out as it did.

btw,ayabie & silverbolt,This is rumilovessaya from Forever Idoling!!! btw.

Good to see you here. So, just out of curiosity who's your current favorite? :P

Hi guys,

I've gotten myself addicted to Idoling!!! lately and I like them very much now.

it all started with the AKBingo with Idoling, those 2 episode really caught my attention. Masuno and Sakai looked very interesting to me and I bumped into SB's blog later.   :grin: nice to meet you guys.

Kawamura actually went for MM's audition?  XD Thank goodness she didn't make it, Idoling is definitely the place for people like her

Idoling!!! episode #506 is now available on Acchi Muite Pie!!! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/), and I noticed something interesting:
(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/th_endo_sakai.jpg) (http://s165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/?action=view&current=endo_sakai.jpg)
Endo was born in 1988, and Sakai was born in 1989. They actually went through the entire episode like this. I guess they didn't pay attention to the years written on the boards. :lol:

I was always sure that Endo is the oldest member of Idoling!!!'s current roster, but seeing this confused me. I had to double-check their profiles just to make sure I wasn't going crazy. XD

Speaking of, I really like Natsukashiing, by the way. Especially the topics brought up by the younger members, or in other words Kaede. :lol: It's almost scary in a way.

Thank goodness she didn't make it, Idoling is definitely the place for people like her
Yeah, I don't think any other group would've made her evolve as much as she has in Idoling!!! :lol: I think that goes for all of the members, though.

Idoling!!! episode #506 is now available on Acchi Muite Pie!!! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/), and I noticed something interesting:
(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/th_endo_sakai.jpg) (http://s165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/?action=view&current=endo_sakai.jpg)
Endo was born in 1988, and Sakai was born in 1989. They actually went through the entire episode like this. I guess they didn't pay attention to the years written on the boards. :lol:

I was always sure that Endo is the oldest member of Idoling!!!'s current roster, but seeing this confused me. I had to double-check their profiles just to make sure I wasn't going crazy. XD


I think its just because Endou didn't reach her birthday yet, while Sakacchi just celebrated hers. So I guess technically its correct until Endou celebrates hers.

lately the presents that they are giving to Idoling are pretty expensive don't you think? PS3 and Wii for just creating up something new... I saved up so much for both of those... haha but I'm glad that they are treated well. A whole set of Detective Conan, wow that's really something.

episode #505 was great to me, being Conan manga fan and all. Kaede's answer was really unthinkable  XD if she's going to keep up with those kind of answers it'll be fun to pay attention to her. Is it just me or Amimi is a bit more livelier lately?

Idoling's #6 Tonooka Erica's 2009 calendar is great. It's big, 8 pages, well-packed; a must have! Despite what the cover might suggest, the calendar is very tasteful and does not contain any daring shots. It contains a nice selection of photos which give of a summer vibe and show Erica's cuteness and appeal.

GOTCHA!  :grin:

Ichirou Itou of Every Little Thing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Every_Little_Thing_(band)) has a solo album (http://www.avexnet.or.jp/itoichiro/news/index.html) coming out on 2009.08.05, and the track list supposedly looks like this:

1. Welcome Aboard!/伊藤一朗 & AYUSE KOZUE
2. Eternal Shine/伊藤一朗 & 上原歩
3. Re:待つ夜/伊藤一朗 & 河口恭吾
4. 少女不安定/伊藤一朗 & アイドリング!!!
5. part of me/伊藤一朗 & ハイジ
6. Pictures Of You(Instrumental)/伊藤一朗

The highlighted track reads: 4. Shoujo Fuantei / Itou Ichirou & Idoling!!!

At first, I thought this might be false because of the whole ELT on Avex and Idoling!!! on Pony Canyon complication, but then I remembered that Idoling!!! #19, Yurika Tachibana is actually under Avex Management. Collaborations seem to be a somewhat regular occurrence for Idoling!!!... Kaela Kimura, AKB48, and now this. I'm all for it, though. It keeps things fresh and interesting. :D

Odaiba Gasshuukoku 2009/07/27

Towers: #3 Maipuru, #8 Fonchi, #9 Rurika, #13 Serina, #14 Sakacchi, #15 Asahi, #16 Amimi, #19 Yurika
Nihonokadamura: #3 Maipuru, #6 Tonooka, #11 Suuchan, #12 Kawamura, #15 Asahi, #19 Yurika, #21 Kaede

(Bolded are support members for those who had the day off.)

- So, I finally had some time over to attend this year's event at Fuji TV. On the way there I spotted Kawamura Yui waiting for the train which was a nice surprise. She was in total off mode, though, so I didn't have the guts to approach her. :lol:

Today's schedule consisted of 2 mini lives and a handshake event, and today was also the day they started selling the limited DVDs. The first mini live with Towers and the time they started selling the DVDs were during the same time, so I decided to purchase the DVDs first which means I missed 15 minutes of the live, and unfortunately the karaoke part where one of the members perform a solo song.

Nihonokadamura: (MC: #12 Kawamura)
baby blue
Mujouken Koufuku
Karaoke Ohako: #15 Asahi - SMILY (Ootsuka Ai)
Houkago Telepathy
Moteki no Uta

Not much to report, but Asahi has gotten a lot better compared to a year ago. Also, the studio version of Houkago Telepathy has bothered me for so long, and my question was finally answered today. :lol: I've always wondered who're actually singing in the song, and Maipuru mentioned today that it's the younger generation, i.e the members who are still in school.

Handshake event:
#12 Kawamura -> #15 Asahi -> #21 Kaede -> #3 Maipuru -> #19 Yurika

As for the DVDs, I'll try and sum them up sooner or later.

Thanks for the great report, Ayabie! Sounds like you had a lot of fun, much like last year. :D It's hard to believe that it has already been a year since you were reporting from Boukenou. It seems like they're doing stuff similarly to last year, so I wonder if the TV show will change from its usual format like when it became Idoling!!! Boukenoung for a few weeks. I hope we get to see some of those karaoke performances because, let's face it, Idoling!!!'s song library is not very deep. So, it's nice to hear something new once in a while. The cover song performances have been my favorite parts of the Hachitama Live shows. Especially Kawamura's cover of Okaeri. :w00t:

I think it was wise for you not to approach Kawamura at the train station because you spotted "Kawamura Yui" and not "Umeko" :lol:
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on July 29, 2009, 12:49:15 PM
Thank you for the report Ayabie! Wish I could join you... And of course I wish I could see "Kawamura Yui" too.  XD

I've finally finished watching Idoling!!! Season 1 & 2, now I really really miss the graduated 1st gen members. Looking back at the past, Idoling does improve vocally quite a lot. It was pretty funny to listen to them singing Pepper Keibu knowing that MM covers the same song too.

My respect for the 1st gen has increased a lot now. Looking forward to finishing the next season.

I had no idea that acchi muite pie was originated from Koizumi's idea  :lol:

Post by: Ayabie on August 13, 2009, 04:42:20 PM
I went to my first episode shooting today. I don't want to spoil too much unless people want me to, but anyway they were shooting 3 episodes today which took about 4 hours all in all. I learned today that the studio has a capacity of 100 viewers.

The most interesting thing with being one of the guys in the audience is actually seeing what's happening backstage and off camera. From where I was sitting I had great view of one of the monitors and I noticed they recorded the episodes in the opposite order, as in #460 -> #459 etc. I have no idea if that's what they usually do. During the first shooting when Masuno stepped in he went directly for the audience and asked for advice about the newest Dragon Quest. :lol: ADs messing up here and there was fun, as well.

What surprised me most today is the amount stuff that doesn't make it to the actual aired episodes, to name a few Ookawa coughing up aonori after drinking a chunk of it, and after receiving a bottle of water she fails to open it herself and instead gets help from one of the ADs. :lol: The bottle of water didn't help much though so she had to run to the toilet afterwards. Then of course we have all of the secret interactions the members are having that the camera aren't picking up.

Hopefully I'll be able to make it to more of these shootings.

Post by: SomethingWild on August 13, 2009, 06:26:49 PM
^Awesome. So it's the same 100 people in the audience for these 3 episodes? I would've expected they would swap audiences every hours.. I mean, the demand must be high, right?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: reina's eyes on August 13, 2009, 07:50:00 PM
^ I wonder, was it hard to get in?

I'd guess either they're on a tight schedule and don't want to delay with audience changeouts or there aren't so many people wanting to see the shooting that they need to.

Did any personalities come through seeing them in person, particularly off camera during breaks between shots?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on August 14, 2009, 04:56:01 AM
About ~200 people are picked at random through applications, and a day or two before the actual recording the ones who get through receive an email. It's not unusual for them to record more than 5 episodes on the same day which means they have to split it into a noon and afternoon shooting, so I was lucky being in the afternoon one.

As for the breaks, there's an area at the back of the studio shut off by a huge curtain so you don't see much but the girls are pretty loud.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: reina's eyes on August 14, 2009, 05:37:11 AM
... but the girls are pretty loud.

Haha!

One tv shoot I've seen was with christina applegate. Between scenes everyone else was joking around but she stood alone off to the side in complete silence with a frozen expression. Interesting even the little glimpses into how individuals approach their work.

Awesome you got to see it and report on it!
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Silverbolt on August 16, 2009, 10:22:41 PM
Thanks for another awesome report, Ayabie. It kind of makes me wonder how the show was in the past when many of the episodes were aired live.

Are you sure that they're gonna cut Ookawa's little incident out of the episode when they air it? This is the show where they had the girls doing things like rinsing their noses and putting Mentos and cola into their mouths. There's more than a few disgusting moments in the group's history, so I wouldn't be surprised if they just let the viewers see Ookawa coughing up aonori. XD

How high up were you sitting? Did they tell you when the episodes would air? I wanna see you sitting in the audience. :D
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on August 17, 2009, 04:03:27 PM
Actually, the Ookawa incident was completely off camera, as in the camera avoided her struggle with the aonori on purpose. :P Asahi had a similar experience later on and had to run off to the toilet, as well, and the camera ignored it.

I had number 98 so I was sitting in the back row. Like I mentioned before, I had great view of the monitors in front of us and kept checking it to see if the audience were being targeted... I might as well spoil one of the episodes by saying that they did Shuffle 2-shot, so most of the time members were sitting in the front row. As far as I recall I was sitting too high up so I don't think I made it on camera. :lol:

As for the air dates, it should be around early September according to one of the monitors.

Just listened to the new album! 17 songs and well over an hour in duration, that's great. I'm so fed up with bands releases new album that clock @ 36 minutes.

Anyway, it's ok. It took me a long time to get into the first album and I think it'll be like this again. No real favorites atm, but none I hate, so that's good. It's definitely full of happy feel good summer songs and some nice ballads as well. They definitely have their own sound, which I can appreciate as well. Another weird into song, but that's ok  :lol: Overall a good effort by Idoling!!!

Yup, lots of stuff going on in the Idoling!!! world right now... Tonooka has a movie... Yazawa's in a wacky new show... Endo and Tonooka are plugging 30 Days of Night... Of course, for a bit more info on the other stuff, check out Acchi Muite Pie!!! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/)

There, you will also find a news post about Idoling!!!'s 6th live, which will feature a live backing band performing with the group! In addition to the professional band, this concert series will have some performances by a band consisting of Mai Endo, Rurika Yokoyama, Yui Kawamura, Ami Kikuchi, and Yurika Tachibana!

This news brought tears to my eyes. I have been waiting so long for them to utilize the musical talents of the Idoling!!! members, and now it's almost here. Plus, we get to hear Idoling!!!'s songs performed with live instruments. I've always been a big fan of having live bands play the music at concerts. It gives the songs a different sound and makes the experience much less like listening to a recorded track.

I know some people will wonder why I'm making such a big deal out of a live band considering that lots of other performers have live bands... In my opinion, when you have a typically happy and cute group like Idoling!!! and have them do something really cool, it's much more enjoyable and entertaining then watching someone who does that stuff all the time. It's that combo of cute people doing really cool stuff that wins me over every time. Some Idoling!!! fans may remember how much I loved the dance battle from Idoling!!!'s 2nd live. :D

I think, if executed well, this could be Idoling!!!'s best live by far. :twothumbs

I've always been wondering when are they going to put Endou Mai's talent into show, finally the time has come. This will be awesome.

I'm wondering though, is there any recording for the song PuyoIdoling or something? Something that Aoki Sayaka wrote for them during last August, apparently it was performed last August too. Hii-chan did mentioned about it.

I'm going to the performance on the 22th so I'm pumped about the live bands. I don't really see a reason for them to have two keyboards, though.

Anyway, I was able to to attend another shooting yesterday, 3 more episodes. They had us waiting for approximately 2 hours not doing much, but it was worth it in the end with a worthwhile dokkiri. They really go all out with the small details even backstage to make it successful. :lol: Also, as I mentioned last time they really are shooting the episodes in the wrong order, to be more precise I saw the shootings for #551, #555 plus another one we didn't get details for.

During the first shooting Amimi was doing the intro for uRa Idoling!!! and insisted on the audience being in it. I was sitting in the back again so I have no idea if I made it on camera, but then the quality for uRa is pretty half-bad.

Back from the concert. Kind of mixed feelings at the moment, but overall I'm still all excited and hot inside. :lol: My biggest disappointment right now is the lack of a few songs that you could clearly hear them sing during the rehearsal. To be more precise they did Omoi no Uta, Forever Remember and Koigokoro which also happen to be three of my favorite songs. The ending was also a bit half-assed. As if that wasn't enough, the announcing of the #1 Idoling!!! song poll is for tomorrow...

#1 (To be announced 9/23)
#2 Like a shooting star
#3 Lemon Drop (Idoling!!! band)
#4 Ganbare Otome
#5 Shokugyou: Idol

Now for the good points!

First of all the intro was fucking awesome. It showed the 15 of them being in a prison located on an island and each one in their personal cell, except for 4-5 of them. There's not much of a story behind it, since they basically just break out and that's it. Umeko was the only one treated as a psychopath. :lol:

Lemon Drop was pretty good. Umeko was the only one who'd never touched a guitar before, but she kept her cool (She borrowed her dad's guitar, by the way. :lol:). Maipuru and Rurika didn't fail to deliver as expected, but out of the two of them I'd have to say Rurika stood out the most with her drumming. They all performed while wearing their usual frilly stage costumes which was a nice touch. :P

Speaking of live band, they were backed up by two guitarists, a bassist, two trumpets, a sax, drums and a keyboardist. It couldn't get any better, most of the songs sounded better than usual even, but I guess the atmosphere played a big part as well. All of the performed songs were supported by the band except for Puyopuyo 7. Out of the bunch and from what I could remember I'd have to say I liked Royal Milk Girl the most, which had guest appearances by Morimoto and Hasegawa. :cow:

During the first half Masuno was doing some corner called "Idoling!!! files" where he basically introduced the girls with slogans and spoiled some latest info which had some hilarious moments. :lol: If I remember correctly it should be something like this, with some stuff I don't remember here and there:

#3: Shows no emotion, thus nicknamed the Woman of Steel. Has only showed tears once, to which she personally responded "Why is there water coming out of my eyes...?"
#6: Is going as an orthodox idol this year, as opposed to her Miraccho-like route last year. The staff don't really care anymore what she's going as, though.
#7: Weight: 2 tons. Because of her thick eyebrows she's been nicknamed "Yoshizumi" recently. (Reference: Ishihara Yoshizumi (http://www.ishihara-yoshizumi.com/)) Also, the staff have been thinking of utilizing the smell of her feet as a new punishment for the show.
#8: Dyed her hair back to black to get away from her delinquent character. According to the members she's still a delinquent but with black hair.
#9: Height: 196cm. Weight: 88kg - Rumors says a couple of scouts for some baseball teams attended today's concert.
#11: Remember Suu-chan's corner from last year where she gave people advice? Well, apparently she's keen on doing it again insistently asking the members if they have any problems they'd like resolved.
#12: Refuses to go out with members because she dislikes the train fees. Recently sent out a group mail to all 14 members asking them to lend her some CDs because she doesn't have any other friends in Tokyo. The mail had an attachment with a list of CDs.
#13: It seems like ever since Kaede joined she's been having a change in characters taking a break from Puni-puni and Oha-lucky.
#14: Lately she's been speaking in a Tokyo accent backstage. She now also has a Miyazaki-ben dictionary with her.
#15: Her favorite comedic duo lately is Fruits Punch.
#16: For some reason she had Kadosawa smell her feet.
#17: Has been cold towards Masuno lately. Masuno explained her attitude as a teenager in puberty being cold towards her dad.
#19: Her appeal goes down if she gets her face wet, i.e without make-up.
#20: Professional ass-licker. It's been exposed that a lot of her ass-licking are lies, such as her "When I sit beside Amimi my heart starts to pound" towards Kikuchi Ami.
#21: Looks down upon Kawamura and Fonchi, calling them "Umeko" and "Fonchi" respectively.

Possible incomplete setlist:

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on September 23, 2009, 01:44:35 AM
From Nikki earlier today: 9 17 15? - And with Lawson screwing up we now also know they're performing at Yoyogi Taiikukan 11/1.

(http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/8830/10ko108149.th.jpg) (http://img132.imageshack.us/i/10ko108149.jpg/)

The numbers are out of order so it's probably not an indication of whom's graduating. Speculations say that they indicate the roster lineup: 9 --(2nd gen. join, minus Maia)--> 17 --(5 graduations + 3rd gen.)--> 15

...which leaves us to think they'll either announce a 4th gen. joining or current members leaving today or at Yoyogi

I know this is completely unrelated, but I just have to mention that I absolutely loved the Buzzer Beat-ng thing they did on last week's Idoling!!! Nikki. It's the only drama I've been watching this season, so I found Idoling!!!'s version hilarious. :lol: Anyway...

Thanks for the awesome report, Ayabie! Sounds like this concert was a blast. I hope it shows up on Fuji TV On Demand soon. ;)

It seems like someone at Fuji TV made a mistake and accidentally put this up a bit early:

I hope Tonooka stays in the group a long time.

But considering how popular she is, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for her to graduate with ease and assurance that she'll still be quite in demand.

Idoling!!! 4th gen auditions are coming, and it seems like they'll actually be aired on TV this time. XD

That was the big announcement today. The 4th gen. members will be joining next year in April, so the current lineup is safe until then. :lol:

Its the 9th single, Tokimeki Idoling!!! and yeah the title is "Te no hira no yuuki" on release December 2nd

they performed the song during the Tokyo Game Show and the member of the unit are:
Endou Mai
Tonooka Erika

Morita Suzuka
Miyake Hitomi
Tachibana Yurika
Ookawa Ai

I'm guessing that the coupling song for the single would be the PuyoPuyo Idoling!!! sub-unit since the tokimeki unit are the 7 members that were not in puyopuyo Idoling!!!

I'm guessing that the coupling song for the single would be the PuyoPuyo Idoling!!! sub-unit since the tokimeki unit are the 7 members that were not in puyopuyo Idoling!!!
Actually, Puyo Puyo Idoling!!! will have their own single release two weeks later on December 16.

I'm liking the new digs. Once we come up with a name for the subforum, we'll need some Idoling!!! banners to go up at the top. (Or, have I just not seen them? XD)

While preparing some new Idoling!!! episodes for upload, I thought of something:

Wouldn't this be a great Idoling!!! sub-unit? They already have a cool name and logo: Ikemen Idoling!!! 7, and this screenshot looks like a CD cover. They just need a cool boy-band-ish song with a cool choreography, and they'll be set. :lol:

Alright guys! We need more new threads now that we have an Idoling!!! forum. TV-shows, concerts, releases, silly polls, whatever. Let's make it happen! :pimp:

Lately Idoling!!! has really been going on pretty well aren't they? A lot of collaboration, from artist to comedian and a lot of members are starting to be featured in dramas/movies.  :) even with the radio show too.

Just following their news lately is already exciting enough, since there's so much thing going on right now.

I was watching "Idoling!!! - 20090617 #518" again and realized that Sakacchi mentioned about doing Kunoichi as her suggestion to the next Idoling corner and now she appeared in the real Kunoichi itself. Coincidence? Ton-chan and Sakacchi did great though!

Hell yes, Maipuru performing Yuusha no Yuutsu! :bow:

It's also known as the ending from Masuno's "Yuusha no Bouken" DVD, though originally sung by Okumura Aiko. The Maipuru version is just as awesome, though. :cow:

This is exactly why I'm looking forward to Masuno writing more songs for Idoling!!!.

my heart skip a beat during Miyake's 1st try  :heart:

Signing in.. XD Really, that episode is amazing! one of the best Idoling episode IMO :inlove:
I love how this episode is dedicated to tokimeki memorial. From the Tokimeki Idoling performance, and how they're being shown the game trailer for the first time to discover the very same uniform they're wearing :wub:and of course the Tokimeki request segment :inlove:
Man, Rurika really got me off guard with her first attempt  :on bleed::imdead: but really, there are WTF SO MANY classic moment from the girls, cramped into this one episode :on lol: :nya: Yeah, they're especially excited in this episode :wub: i'm guessing the Tokimeki Memorial atmosphere of the show really caught them XD

Might as well do a mini review :P
Highlights:
- Tokimeki Idoling performance
- The girls wearing the uniform from the game :love:
- The girls' reaction while watching the Tokimeki Memorial 4 game trailer
- I can very relate to Morimoto when she said, "It feels nice (watching the trailer) and really matched you guys!"  :D
- Rurika's "Wanna try holding hands?"  :shy2:
- and also Tonooka, Hiichan, & Suuchan's version  :on bleed:
- The girls' reaction after every members attempt. Rurika's first attempt really got to them XD And after Suuchan's first attempt, they also went crazy XD to the point of they want to hold hands with Suuchan :heart: only Maipuru got to hold Suuchan's hand though XD and Masuno just like "Hey, don't pull off a mini handshake session here! :hiakhiakhiak: BTW, did i hear Maipuru,Rurika, and a few other blurted "Moe!" out after Tonooka's attempt?  XD  :nya:
- Pretty much all of the Tokimeki Request segment XD
It'll take pages for me to cover the highlights of this episode :on hobo:, i'll just sum it up like that :lol:
Eh..feels like i posted on the wrong thread :huhuh

yeah the episode was lethal, gotta give the props to the fan-sama that sent the topic. Especially the "want to try holding hands?".

Hii-chan is definitely the ace for this segment, her "want to try holding hands?" was so adorable.

The 2nd topic was more to being funny though  XD Endou and Rurika was awesome  :rofl: The gap between Endou's calm composure and her ability to let loose is just  :thumbsup

It's been a while since the last samariku, lately it is constantly machigai sagashi or the food guessing corner. It'll be good to have more samariku or onegai onegai fan sama again.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on November 12, 2009, 06:31:07 PM
I guess I'm one of the few who actually dislikes fan-sama request. :lol: Probably because of the trauma of it replacing Onegai! Fan-sama!!! for a good while, which was quite painful... But moreover, the fact that they actually brought a guest onto the segment is kind of sad.

Anyway, this got me thinking about some of the past corners, and I'm excited to see another Botsung!!!. I mentioned I went to a shooting a while ago and one of the episodes I was able to watch was a Maniaidol!!! featuring Beyblade, but it's been 2 months since then so I'm assuming it's been canned (not too surprising, though).

It makes you wonder just how many un-aired episodes there are that are lying around collecting dust somewhere. :P
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on November 12, 2009, 08:10:29 PM
ahaha that maybe so, I guess newer ( 2nd gen era ) fans wouldn't feel that trauma so much. However I do want more Onegai! Onegai! Fan-sama!!! again, right before the major graduation OOFS was proceeding smoothly and then suddenly it stops.

eh, Beyblade?  :lol: It'll definitely be interesting to have Botsung!!! again, especially with the newer gens around.

It'll be nice to have the 3-way battles, kyuutai go! go! and futari kiri-ng/ ikinokori-ng!!! again though

what do you guys think about the segments lately?

I'm really liking the Idoling!!! Derby and the 4th gen simulation. The members get to talk a lot about lots of thing, instead of just about an answer. The guessing food and machigai sagashi is being repeated too often IMO. Watching the 3rd year anniversary was great for a change  :D
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: 1517 on November 12, 2009, 11:48:45 PM

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Chivor on November 13, 2009, 01:32:26 AM
nothing much to say about the segments, but i was wishing that maybe they can change outfits again ... Maipuru deserves better outfits.  ... and that fur coat kinda thingy MUST GO. >.>
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Silverbolt on November 13, 2009, 02:57:42 AM
^ The group normally changes outfits about every 3 months. So, they'll probably have those outfits for the rest of the year. Actually, when the 4th gen members join in April, I'm hoping the entire show gets a visual overhaul like it did when the 2nd gen members joined. :twothumbs

I'm not really a fan of Fan-sama Request either, but it does have some good moments. I think it's the kind of segment that they should only do every once in a while, not every episode like they tried to do when the 2nd gen members joined. My favorite Sama-riku moment was in #422 when the line was something like "Your present is me." When Tonooka was about to go up, Masuno joked saying "Your present is Peking duck", which is obviously another Tonooka-is-dark joke. It was so cruel, but so funny. :lol:

I watched the Tokimeki Request episode while I was eating dinner, so I didn't really pay too much attention to it. But, based on what's being said here, I may have to take another look at it.

Speaking of lost episodes, what happened to that episode that Ayabie saw where there was a little incident with Ookawa and aonori?

As for recent segments, I really enjoyed the Capoeira episode, even though that music became annoying after a while. I'm fully convinced that they purposely choose Maipuru for the physical episodes just so she can make a fool of herself. I also like Quiz! Toshi no Sa-nante Gokko, especially when they put Umeko on the adult team. I also really enjoyed the Niramenko episode, but it seems like it could get boring really quickly. :lol:

Machigai Sagashi can be funny at times, but it also seems like another segment that wears out quickly. My least favorite of the recent episodes is Zenin Seikai Itadakimasu Quiz. The game itself is not very interesting, plus it's near impossible for the group to succeed at that game.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on November 13, 2009, 04:11:18 AM
a new visual overhaul would be awesome, even better if they went back to live broadcasting again. Watching the latest seiza-ng!!! makes me want to watch the older episodes again.

Recent mania idols were quite good : capoeira, reaction and the Yoshimoto gag thing. It was pretty tiring when they had the run of 4WDs episodes. 1 shot Mania Idol are nice. Speaking of which, putting gasshukoku aside, ganbaring is lacking lately. The Idoling!!!'s submission for #518 and #519, only Umeko's suggestion is being used and its kind of a waste though. There's quite a number of good ones there being suggested too.

more gokko series would be nice too though, NEP league / Hexagon. If they wanted something new, they could go with Red Theatre gokko too. Anything at all other than the guessing food game would be great.

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on November 13, 2009, 04:27:09 PM
They haven't had any brilliant segments in the last couple of months, but I really liked Niramenko. :lol:

Speaking of lost episodes, what happened to that episode that Ayabie saw where there was a little incident with Ookawa and aonori?

That was during the Beyblade episode. Basically they had arranged the arena in a similar way like on Batsuminton, so the members were punished according to where the Beyblade fell.

The problem was most of the members were way too careful during the spinning process, which resulted in boring and quick matches and if I remember correctly the loser was always the blue Beyblade. :lol: Our expert Mister didn't seem to notice that, though...

I know some of you may be curious, so here's what happened with episodes #582 and #583... First off, yes, I do have a Fuji TV On Demand account. All of the episodes since the middle of July have been paid for, downloaded, and decrypted by me. I live on the east coast of the United States, so Idoling!!! episodes are always posted on the Fuji TV On Demand site when I'm sleeping. In order to get the newest episodes quicker, I "pre-download" them before I go to sleep the previous night by guessing the file name. That way, I just have to decrypt it when I wake up. It isn't really hard to guess the file names because all of them look like this: DRMED_Movie_1_3186.wmv. I just increment that last number and hope that it's the next episode of Idoling!!!, which it is most of the time. If not, then I just go to the site and get the correct file name in the morning.

So, on Sunday night, I download the video that I think is episode #582. The downloading program tells me the length of the video, and it's a decent indicator of whether I'm getting the right file or not. For this video, it says 49 minutes, which is strange because Idoling!!! episodes are normally around 27-30 minutes. But, I just let it download because if it's the wrong file, then the correct file will have a completely different number in the file name, and it's not worth guessing.

Anyway, I wake up on Monday morning and check the Fuji TV On Demand site to make sure that I got the right file name. The Web site says that the video is 27 minutes long, but the file name was correct, and the Fuji TV On Demand site has had incorrect video length information before, so I just ignore it and move the 49-minute video to my virtual Windows XP computer, which had no problems getting a license to play that file. The Fuji TV On Demand site said that this episode has Acchi Muite Pie!!! with the Campus Nighters, and that's what my file had, so I thought I had the right video, and that's what I uploaded.

Fast forward to Wednesday morning, and I see that episode #583 has Acchi Muite Pie!!! with the Campus Nighters... again. What? I thought that segment ended in episode #582... Then, I remembered that #582 was listed as a 27-minute video, so I try downloading it again, using the same exact URL I used the first time. Sure enough, the 49-minute video file on their servers has been replaced by a 27-minute video file, which ends up being the "official" episode #582.

So, I basically distributed a file that should not have ever left the Fuji TV On Demand servers and completely spoiled episode #583. :lol:

During the Idoling!!! Eveng 24 marathon, they actually had new content to show in between the old episodes, and a compilation of that content is available at Acchi Muite Pie!!! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/2009/12/idoling-eveng-24-20091224-original.html) I highly recommend grabbing this video just to see Maipuru and Sakacchi getting drunk. OK, not really, but those two were drinking, and Maipuru acted like an alcoholic shortly afterward. :lol: Now we know where these pictures came from:

Hachitama Live Vol.6 is also up at Acchi Muite Pie!!! (http://acchimuitepie.blogspot.com/2009/12/idoling-hachitama-live-vol6-20091129.html) They celebrate Yazawa's birthday in this one by giving her a very "nostalgic" present of cake and sunglasses... :lol:
They also did a really cool performance of Dreams Come True's Happy Happy Birthday.

CS broadcasts are limited to a certain time slot, as opposed to On Demand which is an internet feature with no time limit.

Post by: Ayabie on January 13, 2010, 09:51:14 AM
I never thought they'd bring it back because of the huge roster, but it looks like Futarikiring!!! is back. :cow: Unless they plan on squeezing in a breather, it's going to take a good while before we get to see a regular episode, though...
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on January 15, 2010, 01:47:24 AM
wow, and its a complete 30 minutes show too. Its gonna be a while, but its gonna be a good one. All these things that they do before the 4th gen comes in are really great, but it is kind of worrying though because it is too great... I may be just a pessimist or something, I just hope that the entrance of the 4th gen would still carry on what Idoling!!! is right now.

But considering they all went through Kadosawa P 1st, it should be alright I guess...

^^ That error message means that the server holding that file is currently unavailable. All we can do is wait and see if that file becomes available again. Re-uploading the file does not help because MediaFire detects that one of its servers already has the file and just points to the same server.

MediaFire is becoming more and more annoying as the days go by, but there aren't any other free file hosting services that will let me create a virtual archive like I have with MediaFire. :(

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on February 09, 2010, 09:19:03 PM
I believe they haven't recorded any new episodes lately since the 15 Futarikiring, which explains the sudden Jojo segment. They probably have a backlog full of episodes they can sneak in when they feel it's appropriate.

Campus Night Fuji 100213 Idoling!!! Kishuhen ecsta...Try our new player (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xc7rax)

This appearance has a quite... uhh... interesting start to it. Back in the main studio, though, this is the first appearance (that I can remember) where it seemed like the Idoling!!! members got handcuffed and failed to push their way into the conversation. The MCs just kept talking to the comedians until it was time to talk about the single. I like how Maipuru was brutally honest about Kishuhen Ecstasy being the only song without a tie-in. :lol:

The performance of Kishuhen Ecstasy was quite interesting. Maipuru did a good job of covering Tonooka's lines, but does anyone else feel like she changed her singing style to sound more like Tonooka? It's not the type of singing she normally does, but it fits the song better. She doesn't even come close to Tonooka when it comes to that crouch and stand up dance move, though. Ton-chan's as smooth as butter when she does that move. :D
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Special Needs Tricycle on February 14, 2010, 12:31:20 AM
I like the slick lipsyncing.  :lol: Umeko isn't singing at a lot of parts, probably because this song is high as hell and might be out of her range, but Amimi doesn't even TRY the tongue twister with Sakacchi.  XD Sakacchi and Phongchi are scary good at that, though. They synced perfectly in the concert.

Love Magic Fever
Orange Juice
Shokugyou: Idol

Interesting of Asahi and Hii-chan to pick a Chatmonchy song. I'd imagine it's way too high for the both of them so it'll be interesting to hear it, same goes for the new Omoi no Uta.

While preparing some new Idoling!!! episodes for upload, I thought of something:

Wouldn't this be a great Idoling!!! sub-unit? They already have a cool name and logo: Ikemen Idoling!!! 7, and this screenshot looks like a CD cover. They just need a cool boy-band-ish song with a cool choreography, and they'll be set. :lol:

why don't you try sending this idea to kadosawa director on his twitter  :twothumbs
in addition we have rurika as drummer, umeko as guitarist, maipuru as bassist, yurika on keyboard. all set to be a real band  :twothumbs

maipuru's background music was Driver's High from LArc~en~ciel. did maipuru copying HYDE's style ???

It seems that there are many places online where one can find bite-sized Idoling!!! content.

I tried to create a FriendFeed Group that collects as many of those resources as possible into a single location which is then updated in real time. Hope the community here finds this a useful resource:

http://friendfeed.com/idoling (http://friendfeed.com/idoling)

Also, if there are any other sources that you think should be included, please let me know!

Cheers. :)

Hachitama Live Vol. 8 review

2/21 はちたまライブ Vol.8

以下にライブの内容を書いていますが、土曜のOAを初見で見たい方はこの記事は飛ばしてください。

ただ、門Pがtwitterでライブ実況しているぐらいなんで、会場にいない方も何故か結構知っているという・・・。

本日のメンバーは、すぅちゃん、さかっちを除く13人。
衣装は7thライブ衣装でした。

1. キミがスキ
- 自己紹介 -
2. 草食系カーニバル
3. モテ期のうた~season2~

最初の3曲は、はちたまでよくやる3曲を13人全員で。

4. ちょこっとLOVE(プッチモニ)

2度に渡って流れた3期生3人によるライブ。

5. ヒラヒラヒラク秘密ノ扉(チャットモンチー)

あさひ&ひぃchanの2人。
リハで聴き、本番で聴いてもタイトルが分らず、さっき調べました(^_^;)

6. レイニィガール
7. S.O.W. センスオブワンダー

最近のアイドリング!!! のライブでは、歌唱面で1番安定してるのがレイニィガールだと思う。
そして、そのままS.O.W.へ。

8. ハナミズキ(一青窈)
9. Don't be afraid
10. 機種変エクスタシィ

そして、今日のメイン!
まず、ルリカによる合格報告があり、ルリカソロによるハナミズキ!
さらにドンビーでルリカソロ、そのままノンストップで機種変!

時間でいうと15分ぐらいですが、この流れが凄すぎた(^◇^;)
これは改めてCS放送で堪能したいです。

~以下、オンデマ?ぽい部分~
繋ぎで、舞子アナ、ヤザワ、せりな、あみみがトーク。

メンバー衣装はナンバリングTにチェンジ。

11. 想いの詩
まいぷる&フォンチー&うめこ による想いの詩。
江渡ちゃんパートがフォンチー、ズミさんパートがうめこです。
今や、フォンチーはうめこの家にお泊まりして、今度は温泉に行くほど仲良くなったそうです。

ちなみに、はちたまLIVEで「想いの詩」を歌うのは、意外ですがこれが始めてです。

12. ラブマジック・フィーバー
13. 果汁30%オレンジジュースつぶつぶ入り
14. 「職業: アイドル。」

最後は勢いのある3曲で終了~。

というわけで、今回のライブはルリカ祭りでしたw

◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇

私は整理番号最後方で入ったので、決して見やすくは無かったけど、まぁそれなりには見えました。

ですが・・・

はちたま凄い密度でしたね(;´Д`)

今回、整理番号700番台まで出ていたので、実質入場者でも700人近くいたと思うけど、どれだけの人がまともにメンバーを見ることが出来たんですかね?
前回のクリスマスライブのときは、多数の人が見やすかったのから比べると、かなり厳しかったんじゃないかと・・・。

I need a translator here...   :panic:

now that Idoling!!! broadcast will be taking a break, feels like taking a look at the episodes for this 1 year right after the major graduation.

When 3rd gen joined in, the show was pretty much slowing down for a while. The fact that its no longer 5 episodes per week is an additional bummer too.
There were a lot of overused segments ( machigai sagashi, food guessing) which was amazing at 1st but as they spam it, its good point slowly creeps away, especially since its 5 episodes in 2 weeks, a series of repeated segment is kinda iffy. There were a lot of episodes based on the place that they had visited (Oiso and Okinawa) which are okay. Lots of tie in this year too, namely being Puyopuyo and Tokimeki.

Putting Futari Kiri-ng!!! aside most of the random episodes that they do are pretty good. Ikemen Idoling!!!, Mr. Matchmaking, Niramenko are neat. The 4th gen simulation and Tokyo Dogs audition are superb. With no Onegai Onegai Fan Sama ( I doubt that we're getting any this year too, since 3rd gen never had 1 and now with 4th gen coming in...) Any talk based segment is definitely welcomed. I loved every bit of #581 What are you going to do Idoling!!!?

The whole Futari Kiri-ng!!! was a great watch to me, enjoyed each and everyone of them. It was not as entertaining as the 1st futari kiri-ng, the randomness of the 1st gen at that time was just overwhelming  XD ( Yazawa anyone?) but it was nice to listen to the girls talk to Masuno. Hopefully we get to see a new Idoling when the show starts again in April. Looking forward to see a more 'all out' 2nd gen.

If we're getting a whole new set n props this April then whoooooooo! The group's standing in the business has improved  I think, they are practically everywhere now. Entertainment 371 is having a lot of Idoling members too.

I'm very much looking forward for April, may a better season of show begins.

^ You mean the outfit she's been wearing since October? :D
(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/605tonotono.jpg)

I think the 09-10 season for Idoling!!!'s TV show has had its ups and downs. I'd take the 07-08 or 08-09 seasons over it any day, but it has been pretty solid overall. I also am not a big fan of the new 5 episodes/2 weeks schedule, especially since it seems like they had a few surplus segments. Come on... How did Idoling!!! Nikki actually get segments that weren't on the regular show? They were good ones, too... Moshimo Idoling!!! wo Koibito ni Suru nara? with the Piramekino guys at TV Tokyo, a Maniaidol segment about human beatboxing. Then, there's probably a bunch of segments that never aired, like that Beyblade episode that Ayabie attended the recording to. Even if it was boring, it would have aired if they still had the 5 or 4 episodes per week schedule. What really bothers me is that it's clear that they haven't recorded any new episodes in a long time. In all of the non-Futarikiring episodes since #600, except for one, Saori Ishimoto is wearing the same dress.

Speaking of Ishimoto, 09-10 was a surprisingly good season for Fuji TV announcers. When they re-designed the Idoling!!! Web site at the start of the season, Maiko Saito and Sayaka Morimoto were the only Fuji TV announcers listed on the page. Yet, we saw Reiko Endo during the Odaiba Gasshuukoku episodes and Saori Ishimoto starting at #600, both former regulars on the show. We also got to see Mio Matsumura and Yutaka Hasegawa a few times. Now, they just need to bring Yoko Shono back. :D I'd also like to see them use Mitsuhiro Nakamura if they can. He was an MC during one of the Boukenoung episodes in 2008 and he was also one of the people during the Mystery Pocket game. That guy is always so nervous about everything, and it's hilarious. :lol:

While I'm on the subject of MCs, let's not forget that awful episode with that masked guy. They better not bring him back for 10-11. What a waste of an episode. I'd be pissed if I sent in something for Fan-sama Request, and they used it for that episode. :angry:

Looking over the episode from this past season, I'm noticing that they had a lot of guests. Some of the new segments aren't even possible without guests. I'm most surprised by how many of their peers appeared on the show... AKB48, Checkicco, Campus Nighters... Granted, AKB48 is the only non-Fuji-TV-owned group in that bunch, but it's still interesting. I also noticed that they didn't play Iisou Shiritori without a guest, and they only played it 4 times this past season. I was never a really big fan of Iisou Shiritori, but even I think that's kind of sad for a segment that's widely considered a staple of the show.

Throughout the season, I felt that there was a lack of Ganbaring and Maniaidol segments, but as I look through the episodes, there were actually quite a few. For Ganbaring, some of the better ones were Batsuminton with AKB48, staff limbo, catching eels, and staff sack race. We had some really great Maniaidol segments this past season--the Yoshimoto one with Tamayo Shimada, bodyboarding, the reaction one with Tetsurou Degawa, Capoeira... Even the TV Cameraman episode, which sounds soooooo boring, turned out to be hilarious. Motto waratte. Hime. Hime. :lol: Best of all, though, was that Michael Jackson episode. It was even better on Idoling!!! Nikki when they added the real MJ music. Too bad they couldn't go back to the old Maniaidol days where they would spend 5 episodes on the same topic. :D

New segments were pretty much hit or miss... Nananana Natsukashiing, VS Idzutsu, Toshi no Sa-nante Gokko, and Idoling!!! Derby were all pretty good. Ikemen Idoling!!! was great... I still want a song from those guys. Niramenko was hilarious, especially when Yazawa started slobbering from her laughter. :lol: Moshimo Idoling!!! wo Koibito ni Suru nara is a quite interesting segment, but I'd like to see more celebrities, like they did with the Piramekino guys.

Then, of course, there were also the over-played Machigai Sagashi and Itadakimasu Quiz. They were both decent segments, but they quickly ran those into the ground. I wasn't really fond of the Evangelion and Jojo episodes either, probably because I'm not a fan of either series. So, it was basically watching Idoling!!! open packages for five episodes. Fan-sama Marketing was another segment that pretty much fell flat on its face. It seemed decent on paper, but its scope was just a little too limited, and it didn't really work well. It probably would have worked better if they designed it for the whole group instead of just the 3rd gen members.

Overall, 09-10 was a decent TV season for Idoling!!!, but I'd rank it under all of the previous years. The terrible schedule is mostly to blame. When you're dealing with fewer episodes, a bad episode becomes worse because you have to wait 2-4 days before the next one comes out. On top of that, On Demand customers didn't get much this past year. Most of the episodes had only a minute or two of bonus footage, and a bunch even ended at the same time as the CS broadcast. I miss the old days when segments would almost always run too long, and 30+ minute episodes were the norm rather than the exception. 08-09 was the best in that regard, frequently having episodes that ran well over 40 minutes.

One thing I just thought of... When was the last time they advertised another Fuji TV ONE/TWO/NEXT show at the end of an episode?

Looking forward to the 10-11 season, I only have a few things on my wish list:
I highly doubt that anything on this wish list will come true, but I'm still looking forward to the new Idoling!!! TV season. I hope the new 4th gen members bring some interesting personalities to the table. :D

I knew it would catch some interest. :D

As I was writing my 2009-2010 Idoling!!! TV review, I remembered that there was a date in the future that Idoling!!! fans should keep in mind. But, it really has nothing to do with the 09-10 season, nor the 08-09 season. This date refers back to 2 episodes during the 2007-2008 season (keep in mind that the "seasons" I'm referring to start in April and end in March of the following year). Anyone around during the 1st gen days should know what that date means.

Let's make a little game out of this... First person to post the reason for that countdown gets... a Thank You. (Yeah, I know... Not much of a prize. But, don't I give you guys enough already? XD)

No, it is not about members becoming legal.
No, it is not about mass graduation.

The episodes with the answer are available for download from my Mediafire archive (http://www.mediafire.com/idoling), but they are not on Acchi Muite Pie!!!

Good luck! :)

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Silverbolt on March 22, 2010, 01:02:32 AM
^Yes!

On January 17 and 18 of 2008, Idoling!!! featured a segment called Idoling!!! 2013. This was back during the 1st gen days. In this segment, the members presented their ideas on what their daily schedules would look like 5 years in the future. Masuno also presented his ideas of the Idoling!!! members' futures, but in picture form. Of course, his ideas were complete jokes, but they had a lot of fun with the segment and even got T-shirts with their 2013 characters.

At the end of the January 18th episode, Masuno came up with the idea to have everyone come back to the Fuji TV sphere exactly 5 years from that day, just for one more live broadcast to see exactly how the 9 Idoling!!! members have changed. All of the Idoling!!! members liked the idea and agreed to return on that day, even if they leave show business. Producer Kadosawa was also intrigued by the idea and said that they would somehow do it, even though it's difficult to plan a TV broadcast 5 years ahead of time.

Now, I have no idea if they're really going to go through with that. But, being a big 1st gen fan, I thought that it was an important date to keep in mind. So, I added the countdown clock to remind Idoling!!! fans of the possible reunion of the 1st gen members at the Fuji TV sphere.

That would be such an awesome episode. Would be so great to see the 1st generation together again. I became a fan of Idoling!!! when 4 of the 1st gen already graduated which is a big shame.

3 years away is a really long time away though... Just have to count down one day at a time!

I've been listening to Hachitama lives for quite a few times lately and recently I've been getting excited over the clear Wota Chants that you could hear there. I'm sure I heard the Mix (yosssha Ikkuzo!!!) during Shokugyou Idol and 'fuwa~ fuwa~' during Furi Furi Idoling. During normal concerts you can't hear them quite clearly.

I'm wondering about a few things too, why is it during Hyakaryouran Idoling the song starts with the chant "Fonchi!!!" It has been baffling me for the longest of a time, anyone has any idea? Or did I hear wrongly?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on March 27, 2010, 05:12:11 PM
I believe the "Fonchi" chanting started at Osaka Big Cat, but I've never heard of there being a real reason how it started. :lol:

Is everyone ready for tomorrow? It'll be 1st April tomorrow, unless FujiTV decides to pull an April Fool joke on us we're having the 4th gen tomorrow~! I'm so excited that I just have to post this. :banghead:

The only thing that I worry about right now, is a string of episodes with too much focus only on the 4th gen. The show seems to have the format of either 9 or all members in one show. If its a 9 members segment then we are going to see only 4 other members from 1-3rd gen. That doesn't sound very good too, as much as I'm excited to see what 4th gen has to bring I'm not that excited when I think of the possibilities of my favorite members being shoved away. Knowing Idoling!!!, new members = acchimuite pie & Iisou Shiritori. The initiation rites into Idoling!!!. So yes, iisou shiritori, bring them back!!!

Until tomorrow comes~  :banghead:

Just watched the 4th gen episode, awesome!!!! Its live broadcast + shuffle 2 shots = awesome. Obviously the 1st-3rd gen were nervous about it too, never seen Amimi panic this much during a talk.

Honestly speaking before watching this I was only paying attention to Nomoto and Gotou but now other than Kurata I love all the new gens just as much. Darn Ojima was so charming with her smile. I was really disappointed with Nomoto though, during the 7th live she was speaking in kansai-ben but why!!! why!!! why speak the normal Japanese now???? Hopefully she'll get comfortable soon and hopefully to hear more from her.

"Avex!!!" has become an Idoling!!! catchphrase now  :lol:

Gotou was kinda nervous this time around, too bad. During the 7th live I thought that she's pretty tall, but looking at her standing beside Yazawa... ain't that tall after all. I'm loving these new girls, great choice without a doubt.

Amazing new logo too, for the show.

Has anyone noticed that since the "revamping" of Idoling!!! since 4th gen came in, that they don't say that the show is about watching the girls achieve their goal of becoming full-fledged idols anymore?  :lol: I know it's a small detail, but I wonder if they're trying to push the group as a top idol group instead of a show with random baby-idols on it. Like, if you're in Idoling!!!, you're already a full-fledged idol. I've noticed they've been taking the show and the group is a different direction than usual, too. The show's been on the backburner, while actual group activities  like concerts/music/events/appearances on other shows have been escalating a lot.

I wonder what they have in store for the girls.

Post by: Blue_Sweater on April 07, 2010, 04:19:50 PM
Whatever it is, I can't wait!

Just watched episode 612 and it was just so much fun. I was pretty excited watching this episode. It is pretty refreshing to see and hear the new theme at the beginning and also to see the new set of dresses for all the girls. I have not seen many Shuffle 2 Shots before (the only one was that episode where Kaede called Yazawa Pig-san. That was hilarious) but the format really suits the need to get the 4th gen to talk and familiarize with the rest so well. It's also nice to see how much respect the new generation has to the to the older gen (Maipuru seems to be mentioned quite a few time). And the bit at the end was just classic Idoling!!!. Love everyone's reaction there:) Really want to see them doing more of this for sure.

612 and 613 did still start with this:

The new members handled themselves pretty well and were shown a fair amount of respect. It's gotta be getting close to pie in the face time, though. :-)

Every Friday and Saturday since the start of April, Idoling!!! has been participating in live shows at the Yoshimoto Prince Theater with YGA and other comedians. They're calling these shows "Shinahachi Live" but I'm not really sure what kind of content they have. But, I'm assuming that at least a portion of it consists of live song performances because the Idoling!!! official web site has been updated with a form for song requests: https://wwws.fujitv.co.jp/safe/idoling/shina8_request/form.html (https://wwws.fujitv.co.jp/safe/idoling/shina8_request/form.html)

For those who need a little help, here's a guide to the form:
(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/th_shinahachirequest.png) (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Idoling/Misc/shinahachirequest.png)

I'm not sure if these live shows will ever be released on TV or DVD, so I have no idea if we'll ever see these performances, but it doesn't hurt to request anyway. If they pick your request, then you supposedly get some autographed goods as a present, which they probably won't ship overseas. XD

Here are the requests I've put in so far:
AAA - MUSIC!!! / Tonooka, Fonchi, Yokoyama, Kawamura, Miyake, Tachibana, Okawa
AAA - Bokura no Te / Everyone
AAA - SUNSHINE / Everyone
AAA - No End Summer / Endo, Tonooka, Yokoyama, Kawamura, Asahi, Miyake, Tachibana (Ikemen Idoling!!! 7)

If it wasn't obvious enough, I want Idoling!!! to sing a AAA song. :D
I also want to see Ikemen Idoling!!! 7, so I'll put in more requests for them... :lol:

So, everybody start requesting... Maybe we can surprise them with the number of overseas requests. :P

She looks like she has the potential to be the funniest out of 4th gen, with only maybe Chika rivaling her. But only maybe. Maybe once she gets over her nervousness. Maybe. But for real, don't let her loudness go to waaaasteeee. Pleeeaaaaseeeee.

And man, Suu-chan's been gone for so long that I've forgotten how whacked out and hilarious she is. Never leave us again. :(

my guess is that, Manami talked to everyone a lot already backstage and she's prolly the least mysterious of the bunch. Plus obviously she's very nervous, even Yazawa realized that in 613 and prompted her to talk. I definitely second your opinion, don't let her loudness go to waste!!! Quickly get used to the show already.

I love the fact that the 2nd gen did change after the futari kiri-ng!!! Sakachi seems to push her dialect even more now, Umeko going really cheerful and Amimi... well being Amimi.  Too bad Sakacchi wasn't feeling that good, I'd love to hear her thick dialect again.

Now get those new kansai kids to speak Kansai-ben already!
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Blue_Sweater on April 10, 2010, 04:12:02 AM
My so-far 4 requests:

Otsuka Ai - Sakuranbo (7, 13, 15, 19, 20)
SPEED - White Love (3, 8, 9, 12)
H2O - Omoide ga Ippai (3, 6, 9)

And yes, I do agree that when thinking of the best singers in the group, 3-6-9-12 seem to come up more often than others!

I sure hope they have some feed for these lives too. Who be so cool to see Idoling!!! perform any of the songs we have requested:)

We are now under 1,000 days for the hopful 1st gen reunion... Man, it's just too long a wait!

As for graduation, I won't be able to take it if anyone graduate right now! Who do you most do not want to graduate though and who would be the easiest loss to take? For me it would probably be Maipuru and Fonchi in that order...
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: SuzukiRyo on April 26, 2010, 01:50:45 AM
maipuru and fonchi for their tv show, maipuru and suu-chan for their singing performance.
though I'm fanatic to Rurika, loosing maipuru is definitely not an option.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on April 26, 2010, 02:38:17 AM
In terms of TV show: Yazawa, Rurika
In terms of singing : Maipuru, Yazawa

yeah, its such a mix feeling with Yazawa...
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Special Needs Tricycle on April 26, 2010, 04:58:47 AM
TV show: Yazawa, Rurika
Singing: Rurika, Serina
Overall: Suuchan, Serina

I'm seriously terrified that Suuchan is going to graduate soon. I don't want any graduations, though. :( I still like Serina quite a bit even if she's gotten boring since apparently the other members scared her out of being a loud brat like she used to be.

It's sad that Koizumi and Yokoyama couldn't make it, but this is still great to see. One thing I loved about the 1st gen days was just how tightly knit that group was, so I'm glad to see that this bunch is still just as close as they were a few years ago. It's like they've never even been apart. :lol:

I hate to say this, especially because I know we have a lot of 2nd gen fans here, but part of me still believes that Idoling!!! would still have all 9 of the 1st gen members if they never added new members to the group. I just have this feeling that the whole reason why all of the 1st gen members left was because they didn't like the direction that the group was going in. (Yes, I even believe that was Koizumi's reason for leaving.) I know that all of 1st gen was around during the 2nd gen era, but I think that was kind of like a "testing the waters" phase for the 1st gen members. I think the 1st gen members who are still with the group are the ones who didn't mind the changes, and those who left are the ones who didn't like what they saw.

Don't get me wrong... I still love 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gen, and I still believe that Idoling!!! has put out their best works in recent months. But, seeing the 1st gen members together again makes me think of the old days when I used to download new episodes every weekday and watch this group become more and more cohesive. There was a very strong, family-like bond between the original 9 members that I just have not seen since the 2nd gen members joined.

Would Idoling!!! have been better off if they kept the original roster? I really can't tell you. That is highly debatable, and even I have some doubts about that. I love the group as it is today, but part of me wonders how the group would be if it still was the original roster.

After all, I still have not forgotten Sayaka Kato's dream:

I'm finish the episode #616 and #619, notice Fonchi and Maipuru's dancing position in 2nd line and very low-profile, just like a sidekick... why??

AFAIK there was no Rurika, Yazawa, Suu-chan, Serina, and Hii-chan.
Well, Idoling!!! often change their positions when they minus one or two members. Especially in this shinahachi live without Rurika and Hii-chan.

But I saw Fonchi is not happy in this live... :(

Ya, Fonchi did seem a bit out of it. I thought they were from the same day live since i saw the same fans, but i guess its from different days.
I just got back from 2 weeks of vacation in Japan, and was able to attend 3 of their shinahachi live (17th,23rd, and 24th). It was the first time attending their live after becoming their fan. Serina seemed kinda of out of it when i went on the 17th, but was fine once she got to sing the shinatama request.

It was a enjoyable experience for me where i got experience new aspect of Idoling. I got to see, feel and learn new things i've never had been able to experience from just watching them thru the shows. There were many things i liked and some i didn't where i would have never known if i didn't get to see them in person.

I also participated in 2 of the handshake event after the live, and notified them of the fans here in the US, as well as people out side of Japan.
They varied in responses, and it was hard to get thru with just about 5 second with each member participating in the event. Member varied in how friendly and receptive they were in their response and their facial expression.  I was never really a fan of Yazapai but she was the most receptive and greeted me with the nicest smile which i'll never forget and also cracked a little joke for me.
I hope other fans who are able to attend their lives, can inform them of fans such as myself and people of this forum from other parts of the world.

And regarding to the post to Silverbolt. I do wonder how Idoling would have been without new member and I also do have some doubt about where Idoling maybe headed, but I can tell u without ur support and support of other fans I would never have gotten to enjoy Idoling as is.

I was never really a fan until I got to see them perform last year at Odaiba, where they performed everyday with various members in front of the Fuji TV Station. So without the second gen and the number of members they had, i dont think they would have been able to expose themselves to many people including myself. :jphip:

Although I'm not really understanding Idoling!!! this group as well, but the current group of the Idoling!!!'s accomplishment is made by 1st gen member, if they are not success got some attention in first year on public media, I think we can not see the current Idoling!!! group any more in now, so the 9 of original member is indispensable contribution.

Wow, that's a very sobering post about the possible relationship between first and second gen. Never thought that that would possibly be the reason why those four left... I still really miss the first gen. Like Silverbolt said, the interaction between those nine is just amazing. Always feel a bit sad watching the old episodes seeing Katou and others. But that's life. We move on. That being said, the current lineup is pretty awesome in itself. That raised a question though. Out of all the Japanese Idol groups in the past, what was the longest popular same-member group? I can only think of SPEED at the moment (5 years in 90s + their recent reunion). Being a fan of Japanese pop in the 2000s the only successful groups I know of are Morning Musume and AKB48 and both extensively use the graduation model. Just wonder which model has proven to work better in the past.

Also Gihren, just out of interest what did you like and not like about your Idoling!!! live experience? seeing them live has got to be near the top of my to-do list right now!

Thanks for taking note, there were many aspect I enjoyed about the 3 ShinaHachi Live I attended. What made the LIVE enjoyable was not the presence of the girls im fan of but from the girls I didn't really take note of. It goes to show that Idoling is what it is with what each member brings to the group.
Live itself consisted of about 9-10 of the Idoling members and YGA performing about a little short of a hour each with little breaks in between. The stage of Yoshimoto Price Theater was so close that even the fans in the backrow can get a good look of each member performing.
I'm having hard time putting what I feel into sentences, so im going to put them in bullet points.
Maipuru: Alot prettier in person but stoic, and did a great job being the MC and giving other members oppurtunity to shine.
Tonchan: Nice smile, nice energy, almost always in frontrow, but felt something is missing.
Yazapai: Great smile and full of character. Nicest at the Handshake event.
Fonchi: If looks could kill, she got it. If she happen to stare down ur eyes, u'd melt. Well atleast i did.
Rurika: Was not present.
Suuchan: Sweet girl, sweet smile, and really relaxing to see her.
Umeko: She was in frontrow in one of the live, and quite entertaining to watch. She got to say "Idol dakara furifuri shika kinaimon" in Shokugyo Idol song. lol
Serina: Seemed kinda of down, but was full of energy when she did Hachitama request with Yurripe. EVA opening Tenshi no Teeze. So much prettier in person.
Sakkachi: Didn't notice till handshake event, but she have such a small cute face.
Asahi: Just had her birthday, and gave a speech.
Amimi: Was more quiet then i thought, and was always stuck in backrow.
Hiichan: Looked completely nervous both live she attended, but thats her charm.
Aichan: Only got to see her once, and seemed kinda of quite.
Yurippe: Bursting with energy, doesn't get tired watching her perform. She paid alot of attention to fans at the sides, while most of the other members didnt.
Kaede: Kinda young for my taste but cute. Had to go home early cause of her age.
Sorry for making it so long, i'll be glad to tell u more in depth about the impress i got of each individual members. btw, im fan of Maipuru, Tonchan, Hiichan.

Lemme get back to u on the request song. can't get it off top of my head. person that made the request got free goods from the girls that sung, but all 3 live didn't have the person that requested it. I was hoping one of the name from here popped up so i can say something.

Post by: Special Needs Tricycle on April 29, 2010, 03:13:06 AM
I really don't think the first gen girls left Idoling!!! because they were dissatisfied with the group's direction. That sounds like something that would happen with a band, or something where its members have some sort of say in the group's activities, not an idol group. I'd think Michelle is probably the only one who actually wanted/needed to leave on her side. The rest were probably rotated out to keep the lineup fresh. That, and Sayaka was getting old.  :lol:
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Silverbolt on April 29, 2010, 06:51:02 AM
The thing is.... At least from the start, Idoling!!! was not managed like a typical idol group. Idoling!!! started out as Fuji TV's temporary project to test digital distribution. So, at the end of the project's scheduled timeframe, it was up to the people involved to decide whether they would continue with the project or not, meaning that everyone had their own say in it, including the girls and/or their talent agencies.

It's very possible that the management has changed since that initial project, especially when you consider that the original project timeframe coincided with the entire 1st gen era. But, I doubt that the management makes decisions like that without the members having any say in it. The reason why I doubt that is because no one graduated this year. If the management was really in full control and wanted to adopt the "revolving door" policy for running idol groups, they would have gotten rid of some of the members when they added the 4th gen members.

Speaking of Sayaka, though... I recently saw a clip of her on YouTube from an episode of CosCosPlayPlay. She was joking around saying something like, "Idoling!!! mou sugu owaru yo." For those who can't understand Japanese, she said something like, "Idoling!!! is ending soon." Behind almost every joke is a little truth, so if there was any truth behind that, it seems like she's kind of bitter about Idoling!!! You could say that she's bitter because she was pushed out of the group, but I think it's more because Idoling!!! turned into something that she didn't want it to. She specifically stated that she wanted Idoling!!! to be those 9 people, and then what do they do? Add 9 more. XD

Actually all 3 lives i attended, i bought my ticket hour prior at the entrance window for 3000yen, so the seats were available.  Though it wasn't the best seats and was located toward the back, everything was quite visible and didn't have any problem viewing the stage.
The two request i remember were Tenshi no Teeze (EVA opening) sung by Yurippe and Serina, Bonnie Pink - Tonight the Night sung by Tonchan and Fonchi (rare combo).
I can't remember the 3rd one but it had a special comedian guest, 桂三枝師匠, saidly he's suppose to be famous, but i was clueless of who he was as Kaede, who asked him "Oji-san wa nanisuru hitodesuka."
The handshake event was available for fans who bought their CD or DVD, which is availabe right outside of the concert hall.
The 4th Gen and the Producer was also there for the last two LIVE i went, watching from the Second Floor from the VIP booth.
Hope this was informative, for people thinking about attending their LIVE in the future. :otomerika:

which coscosplayplay is that? a recent one? Now that is something that really captures my attention.

being a 2nd gen fan, watching all the onegai fan-sama that the 1st gen keeps talking about how Idoling!!! should've been just the 9 of them really gives a mixed emotion. Even from the very beginning with that dokkiri with Maeda Ken about Idoling #10, I think that all those have traumatize the girls about having new roster... well traumatize maybe too strong a word, but yeah something along that line. "new member" was turned into something 'undesireable' from the very beginning. You know, just like the 4th gen reaction when they put the announcement for the 5th gen audition on the very first day of their TV debut.

I like 1st gen as a team, they had always this image of a team player in the group. 2nd gen is still very mixed up, 3rd gen is probably the next team player (but that's simply because there are only 3 of them) and 4th gen is looking to be like 2nd gen to me. Even with 4 of the main (I do believe these 4 are the core of 1st gen) 1st member has left, 1st gen is still looking good as a team. Gotta give kudos to the girls, especially since the total contrast between pre and post major graduation but yet they still manage to keep their foothold in the group and still grab attention.

Fan ranged in age and types, but as u can tell with any Idol group it consisted mostly of Otaku-ish fan (middle-age men with buncha love). There were also college students, business men in suits, otaku girls, and just girls. Fans were very friendly and energetic, which made the LIVE very enjoyable. I highly recommend going to their LIVE if given an opportunity.

Regarding the girls, I dont really like listing girls name cause i feel its a bit biased, but I can say Yazapai, Fonchi, Suuchan, Umeko, Serina, Sakkachi, Yurippe seemed genuinely nice when i got to see them face to face at the handshake event. Also got to see Maipuru, Tonchan, and Amimi, but they seemed more of a blank smile. I dont blame them, nor do i think any less of them, maybe it wasn't their day and it is a job. Yazapai, Suuchan, and Sakkachi was very friendly. They showed interest, and also leaned forward so they can hear what fans had to say better. :otomerika:

Thanks for further insight of your experience. I still want to go to Japan sometime in the next year so I have to make sure the trip will coincide with some sort of live event by Idoling!!! :)

It is a pretty interesting dynamics at these handshake event, I must say. For all the special attention you want them to give to you, it's still their job at the end of the day (which you very objectively take into account:) ). Being a big group at least it diversifies the chance that you will hit everyone on a bad day at the same time!

Episode 621 was pretty fun. Will be fun to see more of this generation competition in the future. They should bring back Acchi Muite Pie soon!

This Imatsubu thing sucks... No RSS. No widgets to add to Web sites. It won't save my login info. I can't use my phone to tweet because it doesn't have a Japanese cell phone e-mail address. The web site doesn't work right in Opera Mini. If you link the accounts, Imatsubu tweets get sent to Twitter, but not the other way around. It's like they took Twitter and removed all of the features that make it convenient and accessible.

But the biggest annoyance of all: It cuts off any message with a normal apostrophe. I know the thing probably wasn't designed for English messages, but come on... That's stupid. I shouldn't have to switch to Japanese input to put an apostrophe in my messages.

Anyway, here's my Imatsubu account: http://imatsubu.jp/info/19966/ (http://imatsubu.jp/info/19966/)

oh while i'm at it, here is the new shinahachi live team division chart posted on mixi a few days ago since the 4th gen is now participating on it too.
the new teams have still no official names yet so i'll just call them team 1 etc.... :nervous:

             A   B   C   D    E
team 1:  3   11  17  21  26
team 2:  6   14  19  15  22
team 3:  9   23  13  7    24
team 4:  12  8   20  16   25

position 1
  E D     
B A C  

position 2
E D A
 B C 

other positions may vary depending on song

so if you guys are planning to go see them live, or watch them via FOD or whatever, check the concert skeds / participating members on the official site and look at this chart to see who will be the backdancers (those in the far sides and middle of the stage) and the ones who will sing.

Thanks for the info, just watched episode 626 of Idoling!!!, with shinahachi live. Its great for Idoling to participate in these event giving fans the opportunity to meet them up and close, but I dont know having 2 lives per week is having a positive influence on these girls. Im sure the group is making money, cause the concert hall is usually full and most fans are buying CD's for the handshake event after. But I can see some girls are kind of out of it. I saw it when i was there, and its more apparent after doing it for almost a month and a half.

I just hope these girls can make these event into a positive experience for both themselves and the fans. :otomerika:

*note: hii-chan and serina says its their first time at shinahachi, if so then this was taken in early april.  You can then discard the last sentence of my comment. Maybe i get to see back of my head if they keep this up cause i saw a camera the first one i attended, which was in mid april.

so since i'm just barely getting into idoling!!! i don't really know everyone yet, but from what i've watched my favorites have already all graduated fffuuuuuuuuuuu, which would be zumi-san, sayanee, and miraccho

my favs from who's still around would be yazawa, ruri and fonchi o/

Hope you stick around and give Idoling!!! more chance in the coming future. When I got to know them, my favourites (Koizumi and Katou as well) both have just graduated but the remaining girls really more than make up for it. With 4th Gen being added, it there are a few more members to root for as well:) Plus their latest single is addictive with a killer PV. Also, you should also check out the 8th live concert too. The topic post on this has a few good clips for you to sample and enjoy.

Thanks for the results. It's also nice to see some data with regards to Idoling!!! and this is quite useful as a benchmark for the popularity of each person:) Some comments once this result is being looked at:

1). Maipuru remains hands down the most popular member

2). Most popular member of each generation 1st - Maipuru; 2nd - Nao; 3rd - Ai; 4th - Yuuna. Hmm, that's also 4 out of 4 for my top favourite for each generation!

3). Least followed: 1st - Fonchi; 2nd - Serina&Ami; 3rd - Kaede; 4th - Manami

3). There is quite a big drop-off for the 4th gens who occupies the bottom 5 spots. They will most likely need more time to assimilate themselves in, presumably

4). I'm a little surprised Yazawa is 2nd last in her generation in readership term. I thought she would be more popular

5). Average for each generation is unsurprisingly in that order. 1st got 2,005; 2nd 1,911; 3rd 1,899; and 4th 1,682

Again, this is way too few a data and I'm data-mining it like hell but it's still fun to do:)

True but can't you say that about most other polls or ranking results? If it's not well-designed for a specific purpose, dedicated enough people will always find ways to game the system. The way I see it, this is a good proxy (albeit with a lot of caveat that you point out) of how dedicated the fanbase or well-known that particular idol is. If the fan is dedicated enough to link 3 mixi account to his favourite idol, all credits to him:) Viewing that result in that light will probably put it in a more appropriate perspective! It's always fun to see different ranking of each idol anyway so I welcome any data I can find:) Would be interesting to see if the number changes over time too...

Post by: Silverbolt on May 30, 2010, 03:11:19 PM
Let's face it. We got all excited over nothing. The thing that separates Idoling!!! from the other idol groups is their focus on variety shows. So, guess what they excel at? Talking, of course!

After hearing that Idoling!!! wouldn't have a real talk segment, our best hope was that they would have a nice talk segment that featured all of the participating idol groups. Idoling!!!'s biggest strength in that kind of a situation is their ability to force themselves into a conversation while in a big crowd. But, it didn't happen. Instead, Idoling!!! got stuck with a short introduction that looked like it took place in a back hallway, which basically forced them into a position that completely nullified Idoling!!!'s differentiating factor.

Let me be the first to say it: Music Japan sucked. It was good for a little PR, but, for Idoling!!! fans, it definitely wasn't worth the hype. Everyone should watch this week's MuSata on Dailymotion instead. It's much more entertaining.

Does Music Japan always make all the group lip-synching? That's another thing I love about Idoling!!! that they most of the time perform live and they take that away as well... It all really seem to add up into a big disappointment but ah well.

Are they scheduled for any other appearance to promote the single?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on May 30, 2010, 03:47:32 PM
I don't really mind the lack of exposure they got, since after all their appearance was decided later than the groups who got the talk segments, and appearing on NHK is actually a pretty big step for them.

I was just talking to silverbolt the other day about why isn't FujiTV promoting Idoling!!! in their own TV shows like Heyx3 or Hexagon. Then today I woke up just to realized that actually a few days ago AKB48 appeared on Hexagon to promote their latest single.

It does seem like they hardly have their place in their own homeground or something. I really hope to see them appear in other shows by FujiTV too. the 371 is probably the ones that they appeared the most I guess...

All these Shinahachi lives that took over the TV episodes are a real bummer, the show is getting really good now and the shinahachi lives and the current broadcast schedule just makes me cringe. They are getting better and better but still not getting the recognition that they are supposed to..

that's exactly what i've been thinking all this time, esp HEY!x3.
but they do promoting on sakigake ongaku banzuke eight though.
i think the staffs still considering the show as their main selling point, so they didn't do much to promote their single/album. you know, they are all TV staffs. they didn't have music producer.

yeah but things like Hexagon which is a variety show by itself should be good enough for the girls. Especially since they have done hexagon before this waaaaay in the past. I mean like, what's stopping them now to go and join again? Fuji TV have tons of variety show, good ones too.

Post by: SuzukiRyo on June 01, 2010, 08:01:00 AM
but i think it's fine, they already well known around fuji tv.
what they need now is promoting outside fuji tv.
appearing on music japan was a good starter, though the show was very much dissapointed.
music station would be great, since they always have a few minutes talk for each artist. especially for newcomer on the show.
but does fuji tv have a good relationship with tv asahi ???
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on June 01, 2010, 09:46:08 AM
I believe it's actually more complicated than that. Heyx3 is pretty lowly rated compared to other music shows at the moment despite having the golden air slot, so I'd assume they're aiming for bigger guests. Idoling!!! did appear on HaneTobi some time ago, though, and a second with the help of Masuno. It's also possible the amount of members might be a problem.

As for Hexagon, personally they're better off not appearing. Shinsuke wants his family, and seriously, it's like Zumi's 0 points never happened.

Ya,  I remeber seeing Rumi and Rurika on Hexagon long ago. U have to be pretty smart or stupid to be funny on the show. Not trying to say Idoling isn't too bright, but Rurika was/is probably the only one that'd fit in. Unless u wanna put someone like suu-chan and ruin her image.

but i think it's fine, they already well known around fuji tv.
what they need now is promoting outside fuji tv.
appearing on music japan was a good starter, though the show was very much dissapointed.
music station would be great, since they always have a few minutes talk for each artist. especially for newcomer on the show.
but does fuji tv have a good relationship with tv asahi ???

Only NHK is a nationwide class tv station in japan, so Idoling!!! group can appearing on NHK's Music Japan is a big step for them, you can see they are so excited and happy for this show.

yeah but things like Hexagon which is a variety show by itself should be good enough for the girls. Especially since they have done hexagon before this waaaaay in the past. I mean like, what's stopping them now to go and join again? Fuji TV have tons of variety show, good ones too.

Why they are cold-shouldered by Fuji TV now? I think one of reason is the Idoling!!! show was not produced by production center of terrestrial television, they are under Fuji TV's digital content production center (it's a minor department in Fuji TV).

It's most likely a screencap from one of the intro performances, i.e while they're still wearing the SUNRISE outfits. You could tell she had a little belly.

Speaking of #635, that was a really fun episode. :lol:

I think the problem there was that they didn't expect Fonchi to burst out crying, so to stop it from escalating Sakuma had to stop Masuno. From how I see it he was about to put emphasis on her belly.

Anyway, there's no way the picture was from edited footage since the live was broadcast live.

With all these members crying lately, i was wondering if anyone remember which episode it was were Miyake Hitomi cried? I remember it being the episode where a person who isn't familiar with Idoling will try to figure out which one of the girls wasn't an Idol. Degawa Tetsuro appeared on that showed and guessed Hii-chan wasn't an idol, and she got tearily eyed if i remember correctly. :lol:

Would also be nice if we had a list of episode where we had girls cried, or maybe that'd be too big of the list. Sounds kinda sadistic.  :lol:

I think the "Corner of the Red Tights (#637)" is one of best and funny segment in Idoling!!! show, especially the monkey business of Serina-chan.

And maybe it's more hints of the Fonchi's secret photo from this episode:

Fonchi look like very terrified when she knows she maybe need to wear the red tights.
(http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/5774/20100611637hd1280x720mp.th.jpg) (http://img689.imageshack.us/i/20100611637hd1280x720mp.jpg/)
Amimi make the funny pose when they are talking to Fonchi.
(http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/5774/20100611637hd1280x720mp.th.jpg) (http://img526.imageshack.us/i/20100611637hd1280x720mp.jpg/)

Because Fonchi so afraid wear the red tights, so I guess the secret photo is a scene of Fonchi's cloths (costume?) burst from her oversize stature.

=====================================================

Just saw the news from Idoling!!! official website (http://blog.fujitv.co.jp/idoling/E20100616001.html):

The 13th single "プールサイド大作戦 (Operation of Poolside?)" will release on 4-Aug-2010, the release method same as 12th single, Limited Edition A (CD+DVD+Collect Card), Limited Edition B (CD+QT Card) and Regular Edition (CD+Collect Card). Will you purchase the limited edition B??

Is it just me, or has anyone else been getting a little bit of a "1st gen era" vibe from this season of Idoling!!!? I don't know what it is, but it just feels like the show is being handled like it was back during the 1st gen era. I think it may be because segments seem to be running over the CS timeslot quite frequently this season. Unlike the 3rd gen era when it felt like they were cutting segments short to fit within the CS timeslot. Then you have revived segments like sumo and TonoYoko teachers, which make it feel even more like the staff took a look back at the past.

Now, they just need to bring back the original 5-days-a-week schedule and Onegai! Fan-sama!!! and it'll be money. :twothumbs

I just finished watching the latest subbed episode of Idoling!!! #428 (featuring crying) and OMG that was hilarious!! I mean I felt a little bit bad for the girls who cried, but at the same time... The way Masuno was just ROFLing at them made me ROFL too :lol: I think everyone (not just fans who post here and have already seen it lol) should watch that episode, it was just brilliant and interesting... :D
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on June 17, 2010, 06:06:28 PM
hahaha 428 is simply epic. Personally for crying episodes my favorite is still 415, that one is really something. They were crying over a staff who's about to transfer to another job.

Very touching and Amimi even scolded the audience for laughing at the serious matter.

1st gen have done it before waaaaay back starting with Yazawa at episode #25 and 3rd gen never had the chance to go through the segment yet. They never even get the chance to do Daisuki Idoling!!! too. Most probably they will be lumped together with 4th gen for it I guess

Mostly it's just girltalk show with various topics, the girls are pretty interactive (read: noisy), though uRa Idoling!!! make Me feel more easy to know members characters & personalities, it's what I'm searching for from idols in addition to their main products released and edited or scripted show.

I'm wondering have anyone leave a message/comment (use english) on Idoling!!! member's blog or imatsubu, and then they have some reply??

And my cell phone's browser - Opera Mini can't write on imatsubu... Is Opera Mini problem??

Post by: Silverbolt on June 27, 2010, 10:51:00 PM
I left a couple of messages in English for Tonooka and Nagano on imatsubu, but never got any responses. I have also sent numerous English messages to Sayaka Kato on Twitter and never got anything out of her... She probably stopped tweeting in English because of me. XD

I also had trouble with imatsubu on Opera Mini. But, I'd blame it more on imatsubu because their site isn't really designed well. I don't even really use it much anymore.

Thanks for your information! Maybe we should write something japanese message to them... but if Michelle still in team, we probably get some english response from her.

somehow... it hurts to watch episode 641... Yazawa needs some self control sometimes... It's basically a ganbaring with an over-the-top red tights. Its neither creative nor interesting, the girls had to do their best to make it interesting and it kinda hurts to watch that. Sigh... 642 is on the contrary awesome. Haven't seen Sakuma in the spotlight for a very long time. I wonder if the girl is okay with the segment.

the first and second red tights was funny, but three times is no good.
not that i don't want this corner anymore but the interval was just too close and it was using the same dokkiri pattern.
I also agree Yazawa needs self control.

Official Website (http://www.tif2010.com/) / News from Orion Style (http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/confidence/77697/full/) / News from weekly ASCII Plus (http://weekly.ascii.jp/elem/000/000/021/21948/)

Maybe it is one of the reason why the new singles release on 2010.08.04 ...

Except if the staffs force to add Odaiba between those tight schedule.
Last year Odaiba, Maipuru collapsed and Ruri also got sick. Maybe the staffs don't want to force them with Odaiba event again.
There's no Idoling!!! on Mezamashi live too.

Man, if there's no Odaiba Summer event this year I'm really going to hate the Shinahachi for it. I was reading Umeko blog, she was looking for for Odaiba summer event too. Which goes to shows that even the members love it.

Why are they stuck with the shinahachi anyways? I thought that their affiliation with Yoshimoto Kogyo agency was just for that anniversary show and now they are taking Idoling!!! schedule like mad.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Gihren on July 02, 2010, 10:42:38 AM
^I agree, i liked Shinahachi live, but i dont think twice a week is necessary. They are just milking the idoling otakus out there, and aren't getting exposure to other possible fans. I wouldn't have been a fan of Idoling!!! if i didn't get a chance to see them live at Odaiba event, and i wasn't even there for Idoling!!!, just came to walk across them when i went to go see the GUNDAM.

anyone come across this before? Accidentally bump into this, something about KARA music is too similar to Mujouken

Which KARA song is that? personally i dont really care if people copy other artist, i see it as flattery, especially since its a pop music. Oh wells it'll be interesting considering KARA is releasing their debut in Japan with Mister, pretty soon.

똑 같은 맘 (Same Heart) from their Revolution album. There is some similarity, sure, but that's about it. Seen plenty of videos like that on Youtube. Seems some people are desparate trying to start some controversy. They usually fail :P

You know i was thinking about the beat, and it really sounds more like faster version of Southern All Stars - Manatsu no Kajitsu

Manatsu no Kajitsu - Midsummer Fruit - English Lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpXCUqZoQqU#)

just my opinion.

BTW, they used this song intro in Okinawa Manza Beach DVD, if you've seen that.

Post by: Blue_Sweater on July 06, 2010, 04:17:22 PM
Hmm, it seems pretty quiet in Idoling!!!-land the last few days. I have gotten a little bored and decided to catalogue all some Idoling!!! episodes for fun. There are a few tidbits which hopefully some of you might also find interesting. I am focusing on the post-4th Gen era episodes for now which include #612-643 (32 episodes in total):

1). One thing I want to look at is how many episodes each members appear over this period:
          - Members that appear the most is Hashimoto at 25 episodes (78% of all episodes aired)
          - On the other spectrum, Yokoyama only appear in 8 episodes (19%). That's way lower than I thought! It is also way below the second lowest appearance count (Gotou at 14)
          - By generation, Endou appears the most out of 1st gen (20), Asahi for 2nd gen (22) and Itou for 4th gen (21)
          - This number is partially skewed by the fact that Endou, Asahi and Hashimoto (along with Tonooka and Tachibana) appear in all 6 Shinahachi episodes. Yokoyama, Nomoto and Gotou did not make a single appearances
          - Longest absence is Yokoyama for 18 episodes (619-636) - that really is a long gap!
          - Most consecutive appearance is Asahi for 9 episodes and counting (635-643*)

2). Another trend to look at is what the opening songs are. I exclude all Shinahachi songs for this. This is less of a surprise since Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi is played 16 times (62% of the shows) while I no Standard (the live version) is played 6 times. The other 4 episodes (the first 4 of the era) have SUNRISE. No surprise since they would want to advertise it to sell the singles

3). In terms of the type of shows, 32 is not that big of a sample so there is no major trend I can see from it yet.
          - The most frequent shows so far out of this sample size is Shinahachi live at 6.
          - Aka Tights no Corner is next at 3 (I count the Tricksing!!! episode as well). Inquiry letters and Zenin Seikai Itadakinasu Quiz also have 3 episodes each.
          - There seems to be a good mix of old favourites in there with 1 each of Isou Shiritori!!!, Shuffle 2 Shot!!!, Sumo, Gambaring!!!, Oshiete! and Maniaidol!!! Now we need an Acchi Muite Pie episode again!

4). As far as announcers are concerned, Morimoto Sayaka appeared in 14 while Saito Maiko appeared in 12 (other 6 are Shinahachi). No surprise here as the two old veterans split the count.

Anyway, that's all for now. I am currently trying to collect information for all the 600+ episodes of Idoling!!! and will try to post more analysis again when I have reached another critical mass of data

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on July 07, 2010, 04:41:35 PM
Most probably that's the case I guess.

What I'm really wondering lately is that, will Morimoto and Saitou be the only TV announcer for Idoling!!! now? You don't see any other announcer anymore and it seems that Ishimoto Saori was only brought back for 1 day during the 3 year anniversary. I kind of missed Ishimoto and Shouno as the supporting MC because both of them are very kind (less of a sadist... I'd say, compared to Morimoto and Saitou). Plus the Shouno X Masuno scandal that Yazawa was pushing before this was kinda fun too.

Things have been changing for Idoling!!! that's for sure. Obvious difference would be with the Shinahachi taking over Hachitama. The other thing that really make me sad is to see FujiTV not updating Idoling!!! merchandise goods over the FujiTV eShop anymore. Last update was during the 7th live, which is a bit weird since sales doesn't seem to be so bad. Emphasis on seems. The fact that lately they have been going this "typical Idol" path of many concerts and lives all over the schedule but not pushing the goods/shirts out is kinda like a half-hearted effort. I'm getting the feeling that they wish to change the path that Idoling!!! is in right now but unsure of how to do it and so we get this weird schedule that we're having right now.

To conclude, bring back 5 episodes per week!!!! and you'll never go astray!

Post by: Silverbolt on August 09, 2010, 07:49:07 AM
As you may or may not know, I actually took a 2-week vacation to Japan last month. It may not seem like it because of the lack of updates at AMP!!!, but I have actually been back in the US since July 23. XD Anyway, I finally got caught up with things and finally got my sleep schedule somewhat back to normal, so I thought I'd start posting here again and give everyone a nice little report on the Idoling!!!-related stuff my friends and I did while we were in Japan.

Now, don't expect too much detail because the whole thing flew by in a flash (plus, it's been a few weeks, and my memory isn't that great). Even if you had asked me what the setlist was right after I exited the concert hall, I wouldn't have been able to tell you. XD

The previous (and only) J-Pop concert I had attended prior to this trip was the AAA concert 3 years ago at Otakon in Baltimore. So, this was my first time going to idol group concerts in Japan, and let me tell you, it's a whole different beast compared to that AAA concert. I had actually been to Japan once about 5 years ago, but there were no concerts going on at the time, and all I got to see was a Gatas Brilhantes H.P. futsal tournament. Again, idol concerts are a completely different environment, so it was all brand new to me.

(No pictures for now, since I don't have my camera at the moment, but I'll post some when I get a chance.)

Silverbolt's Japan Trip 2010, Day 3 - July 13, 2010
This wasn't really an Idoling!!! day, but it was the first day where we were able to head into Tokyo (we were staying with my friend's parents in Kanagawa), and I wanted to check out Shinagawa just so I'd have an idea of where we needed to go to see the Shinahachi lives. When my sister and I went to Japan back in 2005, we actually stayed in the Shinagawa Prince Hotel, so when we got off the train at the Shinagawa station, all of the memories came flooding back, and everything suddenly looked familiar. I knew exactly how to get to the hotel from the train station, which was really helpful since the Yoshimoto Prince Theater is inside the hotel. I hate to keep bringing up the past, but gosh it felt good to just remember that area. Anyway, we explored the inside of the Annex tower (which, for some reason, I could have sworn was the North tower last time we were there) and we saw a cardboard cutout featuring Kawamura, Okawa, 2 YGA members, and a comedian. So, of course my friends and I took a picture with it. We also took a picture with a cutout of 2 comedians that was on the same floor as the Yoshimoto Prince Theater. Once we were done in Shinagawa, we ended up going to like 3 more areas (Yokohama, Ginza, and Shibuya). BTW, I don't really recommend doing that unless you like doing a whole lot of walking. :lol:

Silverbolt's Japan Trip 2010, Day 6 - July 16, 2010
This was the big day. The first Shinahachi live on our schedule was this day at 6:30 PM. This would be the first time I would ever see Idoling!!! live and in-person. There was plenty of stuff to do in Shinagawa, and we only went to the Shinagawa Prince Hotel on day 3. So, me being the somewhat paranoid person that I am, I decided that it would be best if we just stayed in Shinagawa for the entire day. Well, that and the fact that another friend of ours who works in Japan as part of the JET program wanted to meet up with us. So, we ate lunch with him at an Italian restaurant in Shinagawa. After that, we had a few hours to kill, so we said goodbye to our friend and headed over to the Epson Aqua Stadium to check out the aquarium. That was nice and all, but once 5:00 rolled around, I decided that it was time to start thinking about heading over to the Yoshimoto Prince Theater since we'd still need to buy CDs and stuff to get handshake tickets.

So, we headed over the inside part of the little walkway between the Epson Aqua Stadium and the Yoshimoto Prince Theater, and I noticed that there was a line along the outisde part of that same walkway. But, I didn't even think twice about it because I mainly wanted to go back downstairs to the game center/bowling alley to get drinks from the vending machines before we go to the concert. (Did I mention how hot it was in Japan? :lol:) We played some games and got some drinks at the game center, and once 5:30 hit, we headed back up to the Yoshimoto Prince Theater and strolled right into the shop area, which leads into the theater itself. I then thought to myself, "Wait a minute... Wasn't there a line?" So, we walked back outside and sure enough, there was still a line to get into the shop. You were supposed to line up and wait until they let you into the store, but for some reason, they let my friends and I just walk right in without incident. :lol: So, we lined up, and when our turn to shop eventually came, we headed straight for the little bin that holds all of the CDs that are eligible for handshake tickets. I picked up the regular edition of Mujouken Koufuku (because that song's great), my friend picked up SUNRISE, and my other friend got Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi. My sister had no interest in shaking the members' hands, so she didn't get anything. XD Since we were pretty much the last ones in the line, we just paid for our CDs and stuck around for the theater doors to open.

While I'm on the topic of the store, it was quite amazing to see all of the Yoshimoto comedian goods. The comedians are treated like idols in that they have tons of goods and tons of pictures for sale. It was kind of odd seeing people fawn over pictures of these silly guys, but hey I guess that's just another aspect of Japanese culture. :lol:

Anyway, the "doors open" time of 6:00 comes up, people start crowding around the theater entryway, and they finally open the doors a little later than scheduled around 6:15. Once inside the theater, we find our seats, and much as I expected after seeing the seat numbers, we were about 7 rows back and off to the left side (row G, seats 3, 4, 5, 6). They were playing Avril Lavigne songs over the speakers, the Shinahachi Live signs were up on the stage, wotas were all over the place (including a few girls BTW)... It finally started settling in for me. I was minutes away from seeing Idoling!!! live. :panic: One of the thoughts that constantly popped up in my mind while I was waiting was how small the theater looks in real life. I mean, I could tell that it was a small venue from the videos, but gosh it looks so small when you're inside. BTW, I think the 7/16 and 7/17 concerts were supposed to be recorded, but they changed it at the last minute to the Shinahachi Live on 7/25 in Osaka, so the format was a little different compared to what we see on Idoling!!!'s TV show.

Eventually, everyone settles down, the lights dim, and the neat little intro video starts playing on the screens. This video shows all of the YGA members and all of the Idoling!!! members, but right after it shows the Idoling!!! members, it flips to a screen split into 20 panels, and some of the panels flip showing the Idoling!!! members who will be participating in the concert (Endo, Yazawa, Yokoyama, Morita, Nagano, Miyake, Hashimoto, Ito, Nomoto, and Ojima for this concert, by the way). I don't know why that stuck in my mind, but I guess I thought it was cool enough to remember. :lol: Anyway, right after that video, the YGA intro video played on the screens, indicating that YGA was up first. So they come out singing Virgin Beat (I think) and jeez those speakers were cranked up. I think they blew the hearing in my left ear for a little bit. :lol: I wasn't looking forward to sitting through YGA's part, but it actually ended up not being too bad. I really enjoyed the opening part of Virgin Beat (love that thumping bass), the chorus part of Bye Bye Kinenbi (hengao ageru~ :lol:), and the chorus part of Fighting Girl (that "swimming" dance move is silly, but fun). They have decent songs, but they're just not interesting to look at. That Sana-P girl was even creepier in real life. :lol:

So, after enjoying YGA's set a little more than I thought I would, there was a little pause, and Idoling!!! came out to do a "halftime MC" of sorts with YGA. In this MC segment, each group randomly picks a member's name out of a box, and the 2 members who are chosen are assigned to be the main MCs for the segment. For this particular day, Idoling!!!'s chosen member was Kaede Hashimoto. Maipuru was the one who chose Kaede's name out of the box, and as they started moving to their spots on the stage, you could hear Maipuru quietly ask Kaede if she was OK with reading the Kanji. :lol: I don't really remember too much about this MC segment, but it did lead to some amusing interaction between the 2 groups.

After the halftime MC, they cleared the stage and gave us some breathing time to get ready for Idoling!!!'s set. After a few minutes, the screens fired up and played the current Idoling!!! TV show opening, and then the lights turned on, revealing Idoling!!! ready and in position on the stage. I think they opened with Kokuhaku, but don't quote me on that. Also, don't ask me about the rest of the setlist because I don't remember the songs nor the order. :lol: I remember hearing Ganbare Otome (Warai), Kishuhen Ecstasy, Don't be afraid, and Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi, but I'm pretty sure there were more. Also, for the Shinahachi Request segment, they picked a request for Manami Nomoto to sing Takako Matsu's "Ashita, Haru ga Kitara". That part was particularly funny because the Idoling!!! members didn't know how to pronounce the imatsubu user name of the person who submitted the request, so Mori D popped up in front of the stage and told them how to say it. :lol:

Never mind... I found the setlist on someone's blog:
Kokuhaku
Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi
Lemon Drop
Kishuhen Ecstasy
Don't be afraid
Ganbare Otome (Warai)
Ashita, Haru ga Kitara
Soushoku-kei Carnival
Shokugyou: Idol

I only participated in some of the wota stuff (the chorus part of Kishuhen Ecstasy was my favorite, probably because it's just like the girls' dance moves), but I kind of had my own little groove during most of the songs. I think my enjoyment of Idoling!!!'s music may be different from most because I just didn't enjoy the wota stuff as much as I thought I would. In that environment with the music blaring and the bass shaking the ground, I was having much more fun dancing to the beats on my own, much like I do at home. I dunno... Maybe it's the American in me. :)

I can't tell you too much about the quality of the vocals, but I can't remember hearing any parts that made me cringe, so that's good. Hearing Rurika nail her part in Don't be afraid was amazing, and Maipuru was great, as usual. One thing I do clearly remember is how loud the backup vocals are during live shows. Almost all of the chorus parts sounded like they were singing at a higher pitch than normal, but I realized that it was the backup vocals coming from the speakers.

Of course, there were MC segments in between groups of songs, and in one of the MC segments, they actually noticed the foreigners in the crowd. My sister and I are of Filipino descent, but I was mistaken for Japanese numerous times throughout the trip. My sister looks more Chinese, so most could tell that she was a foreigner. But, our 2 friends are a white guy and a black guy, so they're clearly foreigners. :lol: It was Serina Nagano who pointed out that there were even foreigners in the crowd, and Maipuru said "Shinahachi Live International" :grin: Of course, I felt a little left out because everyone in the crowd turned to look at the foreigners, but I knew that I blended in, so I probably wasn't included in that group. I probably should have pushed myself into the scene, but I didn't think about it at the time. I did keep that in mind after the concert though...

After the Shinahachi Live ended, everyone started leaving or lining up for the handshakes. My sister headed for the exit to wait outside, and my friends and I looked for the handshake line. Our section was close to the front of the line, but we didn't know that, so we ended up in the middle because the fans lined up so quickly. XD I "strategically" placed myself in between my 2 friends to try to show that I was one of the foreigners too, but I'm not quite sure how well that worked. The participating members for this handshake event were Endo, Yazawa, Yokoyama, Morita, Nagano, Miyake, and Ojima, but I don't remember what order they were in... except Miyake was first and Endo was last. I had stuff to say planned out, but how much of it did I get to say? None at all. Those handshakes go way too fast because if you take more than like 5 seconds, the staff starts pushing you pretty hard. It's literally not enough to do more than just hear the member say thank you and say one phrase in return. If the Idoling!!! member understood you, then you'll enjoy a response from the member as the staff pushes you to the next member. XD So, to make the biggest impression in the smallest amount of time, I decided to use English. So, I'd shake their hands with my right hand, give a thumbs up with my left hand, and say "Good job!" I figured, that's something in English that they can understand, and if I said it with my natural American accent, then it'd be pretty clear that I'm a foreigner. So, I'm going down the line, and I hear some of the girls speaking English to my friend in front of me. Most notably, Yazawa pretty much yelled "THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" to him when he came up. :lol: But, they all spoke to me in Japanese (because I blend in, of course). So, coming out with the "Good job!" kind of shocked most of them, and some of them switched to English and said thank you, while others (I clearly remember Miyake doing this) said thanks in Japanese again. XD I remember going up to Yazawa and she said thanks in Japanese, and then I said my "Good job!" and her eyes lit up and she yelled the same "THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" my friend got. :grin: Of course, she didn't literally yell, but she just said it in quite a loud voice. But, I felt kind of bad about my handshake with Ojima because I think I did my whole "Good job!" thing and got finished with her, but my friend was still with Yazawa who was next in line, but I had already let Ojima's hand go, so there was a second or two where I basically stopped paying attention to her. Sorry, Oji! XD Rurika was quite a bit taller than I thought she would be. I'm around 180 cm, and Rurika was roughly around the same height as me. I don't remember how much height her shoes added, but even so, she's still quite tall. Maipuru is soooooo cute in real life. When I got to her, I decided to change my phrase to "Good singer!" because I love her singing, but that took a little long for me to say, so I got the shove from the staff and watched her reaction as I was pushed forward. She seemed happy, but I don't really know if she understood what I said. And of course, as I'm walking through the Yoshimoto Prince Theater store to head toward the exit, I hear one more loud "THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" from Yazawa who had just started shaking hands with my other friend. :lol:

Thus ended my first Idoling!!! concert and handshake experience. I know this is gonna sound weird, but I just have to let everyone here know... The girls' hands felt so soft and smooth. :lol: Anyway, scratch what I said about not being able to go into much detail because I remembered a lot more than I thought I would, and this post ended up being much, much longer than I expected. So, I'm gonna let everyone here digest this for a little and write up a separate post for the next day when I get a chance.

You can start with celebrating member's birthday and record it, then upload to youtube and share to twitter.
just like kei have done when he celebrate hii-chan's birthday. Hii-chan, Umeko, and Mori D watched the video.  XD

I figured you were on vacation those 2 weeks as there were no updates on AMP!! ^^
But what a great story you have there,you had lots of fun! I know what you mean,you think you don't remember much until you start writing your actual story,then every detail comes back ;)
And I didn't know they did the handshaking events!!!!  :shocked  I'm looking forward to that if I ever get to an Idoling live event. (but I guess they don't always do the handshaking thing,right?)

I've seen quite a few concerts in Japan (Ayumi Hamasaki 6x and some others), but not such idol group lives. I'm kinda mixed with the wota stuff, partly doing my own thing and partly joining in with the crowd. Unfortunately, I never go to Japan during the summer, only in spring (and new year holidays). Next time will be new year holidays again,so I'm hoping there will be something to do Idoling.

I would've borrowed my friend's #17 Oiso Long Beach shirt, but then Mori D won't be showing it to Umeko XD so I'm glad I was wearing that. But yeah, a #12 fan celebrating #17's birthday.

seems that both Hii-chan and Umeko is delighted by it. Which is cool though, I've heard stories from AKB wotas about how much the girl hates DDs (daredemo daisuki AKA fan who likes more than 1 member). I guess Idoling!!! members are more open towards it. Plus even the response in 2ch wasn't that hostile.

Mori D's twitter.

Mori D showed the video to the members and they response it via Mori D.
I didn't expect Mori D to reply. He is kind. He is actively using twitter.

Kadosawa apparently not using twitter that much, use imatsubu instead.

Hey, what was that Shouno and Masuno "scandal" which someone mentioned? Are there any episodes where they talk about it? I remember seeing one episode where Saito Maiko and the girls were teasing Masuno about something. He was all embarassed, went behind that TV screen and started browsing through some magazine. Don't remember what episode that was.

Dunno where to put this

Went to the Gasshukoku concert today. First time I went to Idoling concert.
Had to line up for the ticket from 9am, the line was incredible. Around 9:45am I got the ticket and again
went in line to buy the DVDs. After lining up for 1 and half hour, I finally got the DVDs and the handshake ticket that came with it
Then I went to the concert from 12 to 1 and met my friend for the handshake event at 1:30pm

The songs IIRC

Poolside Daisakusen
Mujouken Koufuku
Lemon Drop
Kishuhen Ecstasy
Me Ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi
Shokugyou Idol
Poolside Daisakusen

All members except Tonchan, Amimi, Hiichan, and Yurippe are present

Members that look different IRL are Maipuru, Asahi, Sakacchi and Aichan
Maipuru looks so much better in person. Sakacchi has such a small face.
Umeko and Ruka are great to watch live, they bring so much energy.
Suuchan and Kaede are so cute. Suuchan especially have a lot of fan it seems
Yokoyama sings great especially the solo parts.

The handshake event went so fast I can barely remember anyhing. (maybe it was nerve)
From what I can remember, the 4th gen are especially excited to see a gaijin fan, Nomoto and Yuuna
dont wanna let go of my hand eventhough the staff are hurrying me. Asahi and Aichan greet me in English eventhough
I spoke Japanese, Fonchi's eyes are scary. After the handshake, Mori D noticed my friend and I, and came to talk to us.
He can guess that we're from Malaysia at a glance. He's a nice guy

After this day, I reconverted to a Mori D's fan. :)

it's a shame there was a limit of 2 DVDs per person. I couldnt get a handshake ticket for Aswad :cry:
Watched the DVDs today, kinda liked part 3 more then 4. Half of part 4 consisted of the storytelling guy talking and we only got to see the girl's expressions

I haven't been getting enough time to watch Idoling!!! like I used to before but when I got the time to watch the shinachi at NGK episode I was totally blown away by makehende. Although I gotta say that the kansai girls aren't the best singer there is in Idoling!!! but since they all contributed to the lyrics it turns out to be quite a wonderful one.

it was just so much of a kick that I just gotta do this:

Lift your face up, hold your chest high, the stars are not just in the sky
The lady at the convenience store is really cool, the trains here goes to all parts of the city
There's no paddy field, or crows at the fish shop (?)
The guy at the station is super cool, as a service --- (?)
Everyone in the city seems to be so busy
My favorite tapioca store is available, the trains arrive quickly
All those amazing fashions are flooding the city
Everyone is absolutely beautiful and looked very up-to-date
Even so sometimes cold air does blow
HAH the crowds of people suddenly stopped HAH where am I right now?
HAH there are no response when I said "I'm home"
I sat down to eat after heating up food at the kitchen and suddenly tears are flowing out
Though I want to go home but I can't say that out, my tears are coming out but I'm not crying
However I do want to hear Mama's voice... I want to hear Mama's voice
Getting all dressed up alone to go out for a drink, I even tried to order Cafeole (?)
Cosmetics (accessories) Clothings (wigs too) feels like buying them all
It seems that I too can be beautiful? I wonder if that's true?
Even so sometimes the cold rains still falls
HAH the crowds of people suddenly stopped HAH where am I right now?
HAH this familiar city, these unknown people
Although as I step down the train alone my tears starts to drop
If you look up to the sky, its still the same blue sky and beyond that it still connects all of us
Lift your face up, hold your chest high, the stars are not just in the sky
I know that I've let you know that I've always been crying
But its true that its already okay now
There's no need to worry anymore starting from tomorrow
Though I want to go home but I can't say that out, my tears are coming out but I'm not crying
However I do want to hear Mama's voice... I want to hear Mama's voice
If you look up to the sky, its still the same blue sky and beyond that it still connects all of us
Lift your face up, hold your chest high, the stars are not just in the sky
Its because I will not lose out

---

it comes to no surprise to why nearly all of them were crying at the end of the performance. The song is very sobby sobby to begin with. This better be in the next album!

As requested from kei_86. A little present for all Idoling!! fans.  :)
This is part 3 of the Odaiba Gasshuukoku limited edition Natsu Yasuming 2010 DVD.
Basically, the younger member (3rd gen,4th gen + Serina and Asahi) did a test of courage(Kimodameshi) with the older member (1st gen,2nd gen except Tonooka)
dressed up as ghosts. This episode is very easy to understand even if you don't know Japanese. The girls reactions are priceless.
The video is a bit grainy because of the type of camera they used. Well, at least it is watchable.
Enjoy!!! (especially Ookawa and Asahi part. Masuno is so evil  :twisted:). Will upload part 4 later. :thumbup

Big thanks, hellguard! :pimp:

Absolutely hilarious DVD, but I also kind of wish they'd done something more Idoling!!!-esque, like giving the older members some of their own medicine at the end with some hired people. :lol:

Just got back from the gasshuukoku live(it's freaking hot). Got to see Hii-chan for the first time today since she was busy with her theater.
As promised here is part 4. This time writer and novelist Nakayama Ichirou tells ghost stories to the girls. This one is hard to understand without knowing Japanese.
There are very little action involved, just talking and more talking.

http://www.mediafire.com/?9lk0l36qpqozv (http://www.mediafire.com/?9lk0l36qpqozv)

As a bonus, here is part 1. The members as usual did a preparation for the barbeque with Masuno arriving conveniently just as the food are prepared.
This year's team:
1.Meat team: Maipuru,Yazawa,Serina,Gotou
2.Vegetables and yakisoba(fried noodles) team: Suu-chan,Asahi,Hii-chan,Ai-chan
3.Tent and misc work team: Sakacchi,Amimi,Yurippe,Ojima
4.Rice and okonomiyaki(japanese pancake) team: Fonchi,Umeko,Kaede-chan,Yuuna,Nomoto
Then, they play a game that really show how each member feels about each other. The members are given a situation and have to choose who they want to be paired up with. The person who is the last one without
a partner lose.
The situation are:
1.Who would you choose if you are to be stranded on a deserted island?
2.If you were to make a Manzai(comedy) pair, who would it be?
3.With whom would you like to enter a hot spring with?
4.Which member would you let to borrow your sports clothes?
5.Which member would you let to borrow 100000yen?
6.If you are stranded on a snowy mountain, with whom would you warm up your body with?
Enjoy!!!

As you may or may not know, I actually took a 2-week vacation to Japan last month. It may not seem like it because of the lack of updates at AMP!!!, but I have actually been back in the US since July 23. XD Anyway, I finally got caught up with things and finally got my sleep schedule somewhat back to normal, so I thought I'd start posting here again and give everyone a nice little report on the Idoling!!!-related stuff my friends and I did while we were in Japan.

...

So that's where you've been:) I'm really envious. Sound like you had a pretty awesome time! Makes me even more determined that my Japan trip will have to be planned with Idoling!!! concert as the main priority:) The setlist is definitely pretty solid. It's interesting the setlist is pretty much half single, half b-sides. It reinforces my belief that Idoling!!! does especially awesome b-sides all the time! So in this trip, what is the number one most memorable thing for you? Does the trip change any member ranking for you in any way? :)

Look forward to seeing the pictures when you are free to share with us!

Also, good to have you back updating Acchi Muite Pie. Those two weeks that you were gone left me with no Idoling!! fixed and I nearly did not survive;)

Post by: Silverbolt on September 07, 2010, 12:09:15 AM
Sorry for the delay, but here's the next Idoling!!!-related story from my trip in July...

Here are the pictures for day 6:
My friend and I with the cardboard comedians (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Japan%20Trip%20July%202010/comedians.jpg)
My friends and I with the cardboard Idoling!!! and YGA (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Japan%20Trip%20July%202010/cardboardidoling.jpg) I made my friend stand on the YGA side. :lol:
My Mujouken☆Koufuku CD and my friend's Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu CD (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Japan%20Trip%20July%202010/cds.jpg) which he later gave to me as a birthday present XD

Silverbolt's Japan Trip 2010, Day 7 - July 17, 2010
All of the days filled with walking around Tokyo and staying out late had worn us down, so we decided to just sleep in on this day. I think I didn't wake up until around noon or so. XD Today was also the opening day for Odaiba Gasshuukoku, but we were just way too tired to try to wake up early and make the long trip out to Odaiba. So, we basically stuck around the house all day. The Shinahachi live was scheduled to start at 7:30 PM, but I wasn't feeling as much pressure to get there early since I had an idea on how it works.

We got to the Shinagawa Prince Hotel around 6:00 PM, so we stopped by the game center/bowling alley again to pick up drinks and kill a little time. Around 6:30 or so, we headed back upstairs and lined up outside the theater. Satisfied with having experienced one Shinahachi live, my sister and her boyfriend decided to split off and have a date of sorts in Shinagawa. So, it was just me and my other friend (the black guy) attending this Shinahachi live. The process worked pretty much the same way... We lined up outside the theater and waited as they let small groups of people into the theater to buy goods. Since I already have all of Idoling!!!'s singles and albums, my friend just gave me money to get him a CD since he would be out with my sister, and so I could get a handshake ticket. I ended up choosing the Puyo Puyo Idoling!!! single for him since he's a big Amimi fan. As for my other friend, I recommended he get the single with Gizagiza Idoling!!! since he's a big Hii-chan fan. After buying CDs and getting our handshake tickets, we stuck around and waited for them to open the doors to the theater. Once inside the theater, staff members were handing out pink glowsticks with notes indicating that they were for Ai Okawa's birthday. I managed to save my glowstick by hiding it in my bag while the staff were collecting them into trash bags, so here's a picture of it along with the note and my tickets (http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/silverbolt28/Japan%20Trip%20July%202010/glowstick.jpg).

For this one, we were in row H, seats 1, 2, 3, and 4. Yes, we already had 4 tickets before my sister and her boyfriend decided to split. We actually got my friend's parents to buy the tickets for us before we arrived in Japan. A little bit of a waste, but hey, he paid for half of the tickets so he's free to do whatever he wants with them. Anyway, our seats were just one row behind where we were for the first concert, but all the way on the left side of the row. It wasn't really bad at all, especially since we had 2 open seats, leaving lots of room to move around. I decided to take seat 3 and my friend took seat 2.

This Shinahachi live started with the same cool video that has the panels that flip to show the participating Idoling!!! members (Endo, Yazawa, Kawamura, Nagano, Asahi, Kikuchi, Okawa, Ito, Nomoto, and Goto), but it was followed by the Idoling!!! intro video, indicating that Idoling!!! would be going first this time. Once again, I'm terrible at remembering setlists, so I found it on someone's blog:

Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu
Kimi ga Suki
Don't be afraid
S.O.W. Sense of Wonder
Kishuhen Ecstasy
Bokura no Niwa
Shokugyou: Idol.
Momoiro Kataomoi
Kokuhaku

Very solid setlist, but the most memorable part for me was Don't be afraid. If you recall the participating members, Rurika isn't one of them. So, the one who got the big solo in the song was none other than.... Maipuru!!! It's one thing to hear it on TV, but to be there and hear her sing it live is incredible. All of the wota were doing that arm waving thing toward Maipuru as she was singing the solo line, but I just couldn't do it. All I could do was stand there and listen as she completely nailed that solo part.

For the Shinahachi Request, they picked a request for birthday girl Ai Okawa to sing Aya Matsuura's "Momoiro Kataomoi". So, everyone cracked their pink glowsticks and waved them in the air for Okawa to see. Right after the song, they had a small birthday celebration for Ai-chan, and then they moved on to Kokuhaku to close out the set. After that, Ai-chan stayed on stage after everyone else had left and gave messages to everyone, including producer Kadosawa and some of her family who were in the upper deck. Honestly, with the celebration of Okawa's birthday, Idoling!!! should have gone second, because it kind of felt like they were rushing a bit since YGA still had to go on next. XD

After Idoling!!!'s set was done, they did the same kind of "halftime" game as the last concert, which I cannot remember the details of. XD Then, YGA came out to do their set. I spent most of that time just sitting down and getting rested because I was sweating a bit after going a little crazy during Idoling!!!'s set. Again, their music's pretty good... They're just not an interesting group of people. The funny thing was, everyone in our row on the left side was just sitting down. I'm pretty sure the guy next to me fell asleep during YGA's live. :lol: Towards the end of their set, though, a couple of Idoling!!! fans in our row started doing goofing off and did lots of weird headbanging. So, I looked at them, looked at my friend, grinned, and we got up and started headbanging too. Those two fans noticed us soon enough, and then we all started goofing off during YGA's set. :lol:

After YGA's set, they moved on to the closing part where they take a picture with a fan from the crowd. I don't think I mentioned this last time, but at the end of every Shinahachi live, they choose a random row and seat number for one lucky fan to come up on stage and take a picture with Idoling!!! and YGA. So, for this one, they picked row........ H....... seat........ 2!!!! Yup, my friend was chosen to go up on stage and take a picture with Idoling!!! and YGA. When they announced the winner, everyone in the crowd immediately turned around and knew that the black guy had won. But, for whatever reason, my friend forgot that they did the picture thing last time and had no idea why everyone was looking at him. :lol: There was a lot of commotion, so I had to kind of yell to him that he was chosen to go up on stage and take a picture with the two groups. He was still kind of in shock as a staff member came down and asked to see his ticket, so he just handed it to the staff guy and got escorted on stage. Of course, he doesn't speak or understand any Japanese, so it was quite a scene when he was standing up there with a microphone in his hands. Eventually, they asked him who his favorite member was, and he had no idea what was said, so I yelled from my seat, "HII-CHAN!!!" My friend looked at me from the stage, and I yelled to him, "They're asking who your favorite member is, so say Hii-chan." They looked at me and started asking if I meant YGA's Rii-chan, but I shook my head no and said "Miyake Hitomi-san". Of course, I completely forgot that she wasn't even there, so they just moved on and took the picture with Maipuru squatting next to him. (Lucky!) They asked him for some kind of pose to do, so he did a little "east coast" sign since we're all from the east coast of the USA. :lol: That turned out to be a great picture... Yazawa was really into it and made a great "cool" face to go with the pose. Unfortunately, I don't exactly have that picture handy, so I can't upload it. Maybe if I can convince him to let me borrow it for a little. XD

After that, they closed the show, and everyone started lining up for the handshake events. My friend and I managed to get a bit closer to the front of the line this time, but still had to move back behind our section a bit because the wota are just too fast. While in line, the two headbanging Idoling!!! fans spotted us and started chatting with us for a bit. They were both high school students, but I can't remember their names. (sorry) XD The members participating in the handshake event were supposed to be 3, 7, 12, and 16, but Kikuchi dropped out at the last minute, so it was just Endo, Yazawa, and Kawamura. Again, these handshake events move at a lightning-fast pace, so I don't remember too much about them, but I do remember doing my "Good job!" thing again... Except for Maipuru, who was first... IIRC, I said something in broken Japanese about her singing being good, and I think she got the picture, so that's good. :) Yazawa and Kawamura gave me the usual "Arigatou gozaimasu!" when I came through, but they both switched to "Thank you!" after I said "Good job!" I love surprising them when I speak English. :lol: I clearly remember hearing Yazawa's loud voice again saying "OH! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" when my friend got to her. It seemed like they all remembered him from the picture they took on stage. (How could they not? He was like the only black guy there. XD)

So, we made our way down the ramp to the exit of the Yoshimoto Prince Theater, and my sister and her boyfriend were waiting just outside the exit. Of course, we had to explain everything that happened to them, and as we were doing so, Idoling!!! fans kept congratulating my friend and asking to see the picture. It was quite an eventful night, and I'm sure it was one that my friend will never forget. :)

Whew... This one was just as long as the first one... Again, I'll let everyone digest this and then come back sometime later with the stories from the Gasshuukoku lives. :twothumbs

This is my personal opinion, but feel free to use it if you so like.

具体的な違いを挙げるとしたら山ほどあると思うけど、アイドルって結局各々の好みの話じゃない? (I could give a bunch of examples, but in the end I think it's all about each and everyone's taste and likings.)
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Hatix on September 08, 2010, 10:21:23 PM
Of course,this is also just my opinion,and my explanation might be too long for twitter though  :) I'm not that good yet in japanese,so I'll put it in english.

Idoling!!! started as a TV show where a group of girls were selected to become idols and to make them grow and develop their characters. Singing and dancing was less important, although that has become an extra means to spread their fame over time. But the main goal was to prepare them for the idol/media business.
AKB48 started as a (huge) singing group that slowly started to become more and more popular. Later the TV shows became an extra means to spread their fame, and some members became so popular that they also entered the idol/media business.
But another difference is that AKB48 may have 48 or more members, they may only have like 10-20 top members and the rest are cute filler girls (AKB fans will probably shoot me for having said that  8)), while Idoling!!! started small and let them all grow in smaller groups and every girl is lovable. In Idoling, each member has her outspoken and different personality. I'm not saying that this is not so for AKB48, but that's how I feel about it.

But in the end, the difference... they have a different background of where they come from. But Idoling still carries the same goal, while AKB48 may have changed/expanded their goal over time.

This is in no way meant to say that AKB is not good and Idoling is better, or anything like that. It's just my opinion. (Plus AKB48 has way too many members for me remember their names  :roll:)
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: SuzukiRyo on September 08, 2010, 11:43:40 PM
thanks. but Ayabie, the question is "what is the difference" not "which one you like". so I expect answers like:
1. Idoling!!! = 20 members while AKB48 = 48 members or more (though only 20 of them appear in the A-side single).
2. AKB48 is fine without TV show (probably), but Idoling!!! without their TV show is a problem.
3. For AKB48, popular members are the frontline while Idoling!!! are flexible depend on the situation.
4. etc...

but since the answers have to be in Japanese, all my answer so far when replying that kind of question is
[ アイドリング!!!番組見てたら分かる http://fod.fujitv.co.jp/FOD/idoling.asp?pro_num=19 (http://fod.fujitv.co.jp/FOD/idoling.asp?pro_num=19) ]

don't know if it is right or not :lol:

#1
Idoling!!! is born from a TV show and later on evolve to be a singer アイドリングは最初から番組から生まれたグループ、あとは歌手に進歩している
AKB is nothing but singers looking for PR in the TVs AKBは歌手から始まるそしてテレビでPRをする

#2
Idoling!!! is sort of iconic for FujiTV アイドリング!!!はフジテレビの代表にもある
AKB is iconic for the whole wota culture in Akiba AKBはヲタクアイドルの代表にある

#3
Idoling!!!'s role in a song is basically set and finalize as the song is tailored to everyone's ability アイドリングの歌はそれぞれのメンバーの力をみて決めるです
AKB's song don't really care who's singing which song so much except for a few members as they need to rotate members daily in and out for the theater live AKBの歌は普通にメンバー変えてもOKもあり。毎日にライブがあるからいつもメンバーが変えるのは必要ですから

#4
You can go watch Idoling!!!'s recording in the studio and shinahachi for the lives アイドリングはライブと収録見にできる
You can go watch AKB in their theater for the lives AKBはライブだけシアターに見にできる

#5
Idoling!!! is trained in a variety genre of show アイドリングはバラィチーに育ててます
AKB is... i dunno AKBは。。。あまりkwskはしらないな

#6
Idoling!!! don't rotate their members アイドリングのメンバーはそのままです
AKB has the senbatsu system which will determine the rotation of the main girls AKBはセンバツがあるからPVとかイベントとかセンバツメンバーしかないな

#7
Kadosawa P is one super cool and funny guy 門澤Pはすごいかっこい、面白いPです
Akimoto P is dull and boring 秋Pは。。。つまらない

#8
In Idoling!!! the staff is just as important as the group. You learn about many of the staff's name and personality too. There's even episode about the staff member アイドリングでは番組スタフは大事です、アイドリングと同じぐらい大事です。番組で色んなスタフのことを分かりました。
In AKB I wonder, from the last time that I watched sure you know about one D but that's about it. AKBの番組はスタフは確かに大事ですけどあまり詳しくはしらない

err.. these are my opinion I guess... I dunno about the Japanese I wrote should have tons of grammar mistake everywhere..

I bought the second photobook in a Book Off in Kyoto. They also had the first photobook,but I didn't buy that one because I didn't know the graduated members yet back then,but now I regret not getting the first one as well :P
So I'm definitely getting this one! And comes with a dvd as well ^^

Edit:
Just ordered it  :twothumbs

Idoling!!! Nikki is no more. The new show will just be called "Idoling!!!" and will be starting on 10/18, and it will now also be airing in the Kansai region and Hokkaidou. :D Sucks to have a little gap, but this is another big step for the group.

Yeah. I tried to watch the stream too when I was back in Malaysia but the lag made it unbearable :(
I only watched the first 30 minutes of the stream. The funniest thing is probably Nomoto who made a mistake and went to Wangan studio instead.  :lol:
Then there wes a dokkiri where Nomoto have to become MC for a while instead of Hii-chan and when she did the live call with Fan-sama, she used the wrong keigo. :lol:

It's not an actual football team :lol:. It is just Masuno arranging the girls in specified position based on their personality. For example, Maipuru is the oldest
and calmest, so she would be the goalkeeper :lol:

The idiot group (Asahi, Kaede etc) would be the forwards because they make the show intersting.
Oddly, Yazawa is the "ball" XD

Post by: Blue_Sweater on October 13, 2010, 05:25:05 PM
Lots of experience in the back 4 and the goalkeeper for sure! Miyake on the left? That's one contentious decision based on her 'athletic' ability I've seen of her in previous clips:)

Would love to see them put together a futsol team and play H!P though. That would be one hell of a match! I'm sure AKB48 can put together a competitive team too.

Pretty cute stuff. Thanks for sharing! Interesting that for a lot of character, I recognize them by the accessory (Asahi's hairband, Okawa's pink bowtie). I tried to guess the pictures without looking who it is and only got about half right:( After seeing who each one is supposed to be, this is definitely one of the better drawings of the girls around.

what's your opinion of idoling!!! lately?

personally I feel that they are pushing Asahi around a little bit too much I guess. Although ookawa is fine as the 'sore loser' character but for asahi they are pushin both sore loser and also stupid character on her. Sometimes I do pity her amidst all the laughter and I really hope that she can take it positively. Even with the manager-san request she's probably the one that's taking it the most.

The budget cut definitely hasn't been doing them any good, but it baffles me why Kadosawa hasn't been bringing back Onegai Fan-sama or any more talk segments for that matter. They've been relying too much on the members' lack of knowledge for laughs lately, even Masuno has admitted it. Throwing in random Shinahachi episodes can't be helped I guess, personally I've been skimming through the songs just to hear some new lines and then skip to the MC.

On the other hand, the group has been getting more popular which is always a good sign.

Apparently it's a sumo special, and guests have been announced, although I missed in what segment they're actually in. Terry Itou, Yanagihara Kanako and Chemistry. :lol: The time of the broadcast is a little half-assed, but hopefully this will bring some fresh attention to the group.

I mean like wth with Yazawa throwing her own shorts to the audience only to have the audience shout back "it stinks!" XD

the amount of ad-libs were humongous but it made the whole show fun. Kaede scene is my personal favorite  :twothumbs plus Tonooka went classic mode~ with her gag and wadaiko

Alright guys, time to vote for Team Hitorikko your favorite pairs!

http://oshiraseng.blogspot.com/2010/11/battle-of-new-idoling-unit-yahoo-japan.html (http://oshiraseng.blogspot.com/2010/11/battle-of-new-idoling-unit-yahoo-japan.html)


The format seems a bit like a new twist to AKB48's Senbatsu poll to me... Still kinda fun to see who would win. I wonder whether the winner has a choice of songs to sing or they can write their own. I have to say all the pairs is pretty even matched in term of my favourite member so I don't really have a clear cut duo this time.

Interesting they also ensure no member from the same generation is in the same team too and also that Endou is the only 1st gen not matched with 2nd gen.

I think TeamBOX is the weakest team.

PuniPuni lost her position.3rd gen members are all elite.

4th are still fresh.

In Idoling!!!, PuniPuni's  existence is weaker and weaker.

Yeah, that's why she need to stop worrying so much about her character and just be herself. I thought that she is going to get paired with Tachibana as the Anime Otaku pair but oh well.

Just watched #695, i hate to imagine just how much bowing and apologising the announcer did once the cameras stopped rolling, poor woman felt rather sorry for her.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: kei_86 on November 29, 2010, 06:27:04 AM
all the more reason why she should be glad to be in Idoling!!! I guess. Since the show is really relaxed and not some real big show or whatsoever. Screwing up in Idoling!!! gives a huge laugh points, screwing up in other shows... not so much I guess.

Shouno Youko was like that too in the beginning IIRC

I agree with you kei_86, i suppose what i meant was she comes across as rather uptight at the moment, so even if they tell her not to worry about it she will be.

You mean that show with Ariyoshi as presenter and also got Saya-nee in it right? I've only seen the first 3 episodes,and since then I haven't found any new episodes... it was another good chance to see some Saya-nee again  :oops:
I liked it, it was entertaining, but it has several different idol groups together: Tomato'n'Pie, Momoiro Clover, Nakano Fujo Sisters and 4 gravure idols (including Saya-nee  :oops:)
But after 3 episodes,I haven't found any new ones...how many do you have?

And it can never rival Idoling. Idoling is unique and already made a name for itself  8)

Depends on the model.  They can range anywhere between $100 to $400, so they're definitely not cheap.  Thankfully, only the bodypack broke.  The receiver is what costs quite a bit of money.

There was a request for a summary of this. Basically the staff were asked to do a survey on the good and bad points of each member. They're listed in the order I took the notes, i.e the order they were read in the video.

uRa Idoling!!! - 20101231 (End-of-year Special 2)

#22 Ruka:
+ The gap between her high dancing skills and her way of talking
- There are times she's getting all blank during recordings

#9 Rurika:
+ Because of their surplus of energy and loud voices, Rurika and Sakacchi are categorized as "hooters" among the staff
+ The best dancer in the group, but she'd be even better if she made her movements even more obvious
- She has a reliable image but is actually pretty childish
(During the earlier days Maipuru overheard Rurika crying in the bathroom when she was unsatisfied with her performance in the sword battle Maniaidol.)

#16 Ami:
+ As a viewer it's easy to symphatize with her straightforwardness
+ She's gotten a lot prettier
- Her camerahogging can be quite annoying (Cameraman)

#12 Yui:
+ We love her charismatic and cheerful aura! (Stage props team)
+ She's gotten prettier
- The difference between her On and Off mode is way too huge


#26 Chika:
+ She seems to have gotten cuter
+ She's improved her singing and worked really hard during Cafe Latte Nomi Ikou!
- She needs to watch her words more when around seniors

#11 Suzuka:
+ Her Kyoto accent is soothing
+ She is still #1 among the stage props team in terms of "The member I'd want to protect the most"
+ She's always balancing her work with and outside Idoling!!! without complaint
- She has a lot of scars on her legs

#14 Hitomi:
+ Very observant during talk segments where she'll pass the ball to members who haven't spoken
+ Deserving of the sub-leader title
- She needs to pay more attention to what staff she's has and hasn't been working with

#24 Manami:
+ Great smile
+ Along with Umeko she has a deeper voice
- Needs to watch her facial expressions

#15 Nao:
+ Very hardworking
+ Proper on greeting staff from other occasions
- Has a tendency of turning her switch off when others are talking

#8 Fonchi:
+ Very considerate and soothing to others
- She's a little too much of a jack-of-all-trades in lots of ways

#21 Kaede:
+ Does things in her own pace
+ Has grown a whole lot during these past 1.5 years
- It's a little worrying whether she can grow into an adult or not

#25 Kaoru:
+ Has improved on her dancing
+ More hardworking than before
- Needs to speak louder

#17 Hitomi:
+ Her gaze has gotten sexier (Make-up stylist)
+ Always reflects when making a mistake
- Has a vague personality/character

#19 Yurika:
+ Has a sense of familiarity around her
+ Cheerful even when she isn't feeling very well
- Has way too many belongings with her

#6 Erica:
+ When she looks into the camera during a solo line
+ Very focused and memorizes things quickly
- "Are you angry?"

#13 Serina:
+ Her existence alone is very soothing
- Tends to get emotional a lot

#23 Yuuna:
+ Bright and cheerful which spreads to her surroundings
+ Improved on her posing
- Too noisy in the dressing room


#20 Ai:

+ Has gotten better on conducting herself
+ Prettier than when she first joined
- Needs to better on her punch lines during talks

#7 Erika:
+ The moodmaker of the group and is always aiming to cheer others up with her peculiar sense of humor (Stylist)
+ During these 4 years she's managed to built her own special kind of dance
- Indecent

#3 Mai:
+ Has turned into a superb leader
+ Has improved on her MCing
+ Has gotten even prettier
- "Stop with the dirty jokes at the recording studio"

My account of todays Shinahachi Live with hellguard. This is just a quick write-up:
Quote
Today's Shinahachi Live started just a little late, and both Idoling and YGA members came on stage to do their New Years greeting. Then after a few talks, this Shinahachi Live started with the Idoling part first!
They started off with Eve. From what I can remember,other songs were (not exactly in that order and a few missing): Meniwa Aoba..., Ganbare Otome, Kimi ga suki, U, Don't be Afraid and finally Shokugyo: Idol. There was also a special request song sung by Maipuru and Yurippe from SMAP (don't remember the title). I like music loud, but it seemed to get louder and louder near the end, especially the last song was a bit over the top. The song has got an awesome live vibe and is good loud, but don't overdo it... all the rest was okay though. Overal I liked it very much :-)

After a short break and a little game on stage between Idoling and YGA, the YGA part came up. Already a few people had left by now, but there was still a lot of people left. I must say most YGA fans like Idoling, but not all Idoling fans seem to like YGA, which you can see with some people just standing still during their songs. I was also totally unfamiliar with YGA songs, and well, I liked the bass in their songs and they had some interesting hand movements with the crowd, but I'm not converted :-)

At the end, someone random was chosen to get a picture on stage. When the girls asked his favorite member, he seemed verbally and visibly disappointed because his favorite girl (Umeko) wasn't there, and then said like: well if I have to choose, Sakacchi is okay.

After the ending talk of Idoling and YGA, came the final cherry on the cake: the handshake event! The 4 Idoling members participating in the handshaking were lined up in order, Endou #3 first, Tonooka #6 second, Yazawa #7 third and Sakai #14 last. I had prepared something to say,but I think nothing came out and it did go very fast, so here goes. Got nervous when I saw them standing there, and came up to Endou first, I shook her hand and I noticed she wanted to do it properly and her time to give a rather firm handshake and she said happy new year in Japanese (I think), I don't remember what I blurted out,but 3 seconds go by quick and next was Tonooka. She also said in her typical beautiful wide smile "Shin-nen akemashitou,omedetou" (happy new year in japanese), then came Yazawa (my favorite), she just said arigatou (thank you) but she noticed I was a foreigner so changed to english and said "Thank you" (quite good,not the usual sankyu) and I said "Thank you" back and I also quickly added "See you tomorrow!", and then came Sakai (my second favorite), she had immediately seen that I was foreign (she might have heard it from Yazawa next to her) and said "Thank you" right away, I also said "Thank you" back and "See you tomorrow" and she kept waving back and looking at me,and doing thumbs up! I was (and still am) so thrilled my 2 favorite members actually had a reaction!

Can't wait to shake their hands again tomorrow, when Tonooka will be switched with Yokoyama, so it's still with my three favorites (Endou,Yazawa & Sakai). And I will be in 4th row tomorrow, today was 9th row, it will be realllly close!

It looks like it could be legit. This is what it seems to be to me.
Track one, sung by all of the members
Track 2 seems to be an Eco Idoling song and only has #3 #6 #9 #11 #17 #19 #20 and #23 singing. One thing that is bugging me though is that in the order of the list, Morita is listed first while everyone is in number order.
Track 3 is the song which is going to be sung by Asahi and Goto but hasn't been named yet
Not completely sure though.

I was just wondering, does Idoling!!! do live performances at specific parts of the year? or is it random? Also how do you guys get your tickets?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: SuzukiRyo on February 04, 2011, 02:53:27 PM
Shinahachi live held every weekend (friday - saturday - sunday), but I think the ticket is pretty much sold out in fanclub selling.
Numbering live held at specific group's event (new album / new single / new member / graduation / etc), also pretty much sold out in fanclub selling.
And some random mini live at random event.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: hellguard89 on February 04, 2011, 04:25:45 PM
Tickets for Shinahachi are allocated to certain sellers such as Yoshimoto tomonokai and Idoling!!! Fan-sama club. The allocated tickets almost always sells out because club members buy from these sellers.  These fan club members  get to buy the tickets a week earlier I think. You can also buy it normally from tickets sellers but these sold out fast too because touts are buying them from here.

Even though some place may sell out, you can always buy the 当日券 which sells at the day of the live but you need to get there early and the seats are not as good as the fanclub tickets.

The 9th live and Countdown Party 当日券 didn't even sold out. Hatix managed to buy a Countdown Party ticket just before it started and I've heard Kadosawa P himself was helping to sell the leftover tickets :lol:

As Idoling!!! got more popular tickets are gonna be much harder to get and are going to be more expensive on auction :cry:
I used to be able to buy the ticket normally but lately I have to buy it on auction because the demands are getting bigger.

Post by: rurika9 on February 04, 2011, 06:32:35 PM
Ah, so how hard is it to become a member of the Fan-sama club? How much does it cost?

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with me :)

https://fansama.fujitv.co.jp/member/regist_info.asp

its not really hard, you just need a shipping address in Japan IIRC.

now there's two kind of fan club membership, the premium and the normal ones

For the premium membership, you need to pay 3150yen registration fee and a monthly 1050yen. For the normal ones it is 1050yen registration and a monthly of 525yen

the latest Fan Sama Request is WIN~

honestly speaking I'm really loving the changes in 2nd gen! Umeko is acting younger and younger now, Hii-chan is no longer that worried about her personality anymore, Suu-chan acting evil and Amimi... well being Amimi ~ XD

Hii-chan's sudden change of character in the latest FSR was awesome  :lol: I guess she got ticked off with the members calling her Orthodox Idol  :nervous

Funny enough the clip above and Miyake's radio Idoling are from the same DVD :)

Oh, and here is the stream from last Sunday radio Idoling!!! that I promised to upload. I began recording about 30 minutes after the stream started. There are 2 streams one showing the recording room and the other showing the backstage. The backstage video got cut off and I missed 20 minutes of recording due to the stream being dropped and me being unaware of it :(

The quality is not very good but it is watchable at least :)

Just so i'm clear on what your asking for here, do they have to be the On demand versions i.e the longer than 30 minute ones. Or can they be the CS (TV) versions? cause i might be able to get a few of them, depends if shares feeling generous or not!

Fuji TV - Ustream Asia \u516c\u5f0f\u30c1\u30e3\u30f3\u30cd\u30eb (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/japanhelpchannel#)

TBS - TBStv (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/tbstv#)

From what I've watched, the extent of damage is very grim. The whole regions of Sendai, Fukushima, and Miyagi are practically under water. Confirmed death toll as of now is 1,000 but that should increase dramatically over time...aftershock is felt all the way up to Hokkaido. Another earthquake hit Nagano area in the morning but smaller than the first one in magnitude, around 5.0. Tokyo, Kanagawa and Chiba area is still in aftershock emergency state.

This is such terrible news, even though all members were confirmed safe, I'm also concerned about all the other people in Japan, my commiserations go out to everyone in Japan!

I've been following the japanese news since yesterday and again today. It's terrible.
I'm glad that all members are safe and I hope the same for their families.
My prayers go out to all people of japan, japan is dear to my heart.

When the large earthquake happened, even here in Belgium, several seismic detectors measured a few tenth of millimeters of tremors, and this is 9000km away from Japan. Although this is almost nothing, it shows how heavy it was....

Tonooka Erica 2 (Premium Collection Card Box Corp., Official Card Collection Sakurado Erica 2007)

I only knew about the Box Corp one. That's the one with the yellow outfit on the cover of the box, right? Do you have a pic of what the Sakurado box looks like?

Hmm.. it seems that the most common cards are all from the Sakurado collection... which makes me wonder which cards are from the Box Corp one.  :panic: Confusing stuff, glad I'm not a die-hard collector  :lol:

Looking at ur cards from Ton-chan's page, ur cards are Sakurado from 2007 http://item.rakuten.co.jp/e-medio/c/0000001105/ (http://item.rakuten.co.jp/e-medio/c/0000001105/)
The other one, Premium Collection Card from Box Corp, seems like more recent picture of Ton-chan but doesn't have a date on it. It will say "Premium Collection Card Erica Tonooka" on the front and says the same on the back
except her name is in japanese "外岡えりか" instead
heres the picture of the package for both

I'm actually working on putting trading card collections on my j-enta site. So far I'm doing all the Idoling ones (toreka box and singles/albums), and also some individual members that I have myself. Was going to get to the individual members ones later on. I'm getting the scans from various sources, but if I have them myself I scan my own cards.

You're missing the Sakai Hitomi toreka set, of which I have quite a lot of cards from (http://www.j-enta.com/en/toreka.php?ts=10 (http://www.j-enta.com/en/toreka.php?ts=10))
Some of my Fonchi cards: http://www.j-enta.com/en/toreka.php?ts=13 (http://www.j-enta.com/en/toreka.php?ts=13)

The Idoling!!! cards you can find through here http://www.j-enta.com/en/show.php?s=2 (http://www.j-enta.com/en/show.php?s=2) then go to Trading Cards. That's the current list that I've put up. I have all the scans of the other singles/albums, just haven't had the time yet to put them up  :sweatdrop:

My personal collection only consists of Idoling official toreka cards, and a few singles/album cards, Sakai Hitomi cards, some Fonchi (1&2) cards, some Ami Kikuchi cards, 1 Tonooka card (Sakurado), 1 Saya-nee card and that's it I think. All my cards have been bought in Japan, some from just buying packs, some from reseller shops in Nakano.
Oh, I wouldn't expect cards to be on ebay though, so I never checked, interesting :)
And I have a small pack of doubles :)

Hatix, awesome website! It is always fun looking through all the trading cards, salivating over the ones I want to get but did not.

The hobby of collecting Idoling!!! trading cards is such an expensive one especially if you are outside Japan I find. Sometime, I am tempted to buy older singles just to get the trading cards! I'm definitely going to sink so much money into this when I get to finally visit Japan! (Hopefully in the near future...)

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Technoboots on March 20, 2011, 12:22:59 PM
DVDRip? I've been searching for ages and can't find one. The longest version I've found is the full length broadcast version which comes in around 5.27GB and is about 3 hours long. The DVD has 2 disks and all the idoling stuff is on the second disk.
I looked at the listing for the DVD on Amazon Japan and it shows them as being listed so I would have believed that it would show the full length version. If it's not actually the DVDRip you have I'm probably going to get the DVD myself and share the idoling sections myself.

Edit:Thanks for pointing me in the right direction SuzukiRyo.
Even though they were short versions it was interesting to see them swap songs. I felt that the sound setup for the substage wasn't as good as the main stage though.

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Jenus on March 22, 2011, 07:51:02 PM
As far as I know, family members haven't been on the TV show in person, in some episodes you could see photos of them, like Sakacchi's grandma, and Su-chan's dad on "Back to the Idoling". On uRa episodes, they show Manami and Ruka's mothers when they went to NGK in Osaka. Sakacchi's entire family more or less was shown on her adulthood ceremony episode, that's pretty much it I think. There's a rumor that Miyake's sister was among the studio audience and was caught on camera, but that is pure speculation (the rumor started because her looks resembled Miyake.), I can't remember which episode that was but it was fairly recent. You can also see Amimi's sister on Amimi's blog, she looks younger than Amimi lol.

Episode #726 is one of the best episodes in a while!!  Onegai Fan Sama Request w/ almost all the members!! After Nagano showed up so late, I almost expected Kaede to show up as well.

What was up w/ Ruka and Yuuna staring right at each-other for like 5 seconds though?

Just one of many screencap or gif-worthy scenes!

Kaoru's Oita-ben is soo cute!  Wonder if she'll ever be on a show with Sasshi one day.  Members from Kyushu moving up to where they're competing w/ the Kansai members in the charm department IMO.

the new show is hosted by Idoling!!! and Yamazaki (Untouchable), that should be an awesome pair though. It should gather them good amount of attention, as long as they keep the show clean then I'm happy. Will wait for news on the original show.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: hellguard89 on March 31, 2011, 10:24:47 AM
Well look on the bright side. We get 90 minutes of new contents every week instead of highlights from the CS show. Plus Yamazaki is a really funny comedian and is influential enough to have several regular shows. Working with him will give the girls priceless experience in the entertainment business. Maybe this is the push Idoling!!! needed. Still too early to be disappointed. We have to look and see how it goes.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: burglarnoone on March 31, 2011, 11:27:24 AM
Sounds cool can't wait. Some of the older girls are crying out for a chance to flex their adult humoured muscles and with how late this show is on in the evening i imagine it should allow them to do just that. And i dont just mean more jokes about Yazawa's tits. Maybe a show like campus nighters (but only interms of how that was aiming for the uni/20 something age range).

looks like this show is a replacement of nabeachi. since Idoling!!! had been in Nabeachi regularly, maybe they decided to join them.

I just can't imagine Idoling!!! without Masuno.

Google translation being as cryptic as usual I can't quite make out what this means, but seems they have changed Idoling!!! airtime which I guess implies it is still running?
Maybe someone can gain a clue from this atleast.

Really hope Masuno-san is still involved somehow, for me he is like a member of the group.

Post by: kei_86 on March 31, 2011, 02:34:33 PM
I don't think anything will happen to the original show or to Idoling!!!. Everyone knows that Idoling!!! main member is Masuno himself. Plus the new show is not run by kadosawa, I doubt he'll let that go. If it is true that this is a replacement for nabeacchi, then we have tons of reason to rejoice. Imagine that, Idoling!!!'s 2nd main regular show. Finally, FujiTV is doing something about working on their own Idols. Hell its about time, and I hope the next time I go to FujiTV I can see a wall with Idoling!!! pics over there.

Post by: Ayabie on March 31, 2011, 04:04:54 PM
From what I know, this is a new show and not a replacement. It's a little vague how the general format of the show will be like, but from the description it seems like any other variety show but with focus on Fuji TV-related stuff and other news.

The main MC will feature Untouchable's Yamazaki and one member from Idoling!!! (possibly rotating them?), and then 3 more members with most likely more rotation here as well. Within the 90 minute show is 30 minutes of Idoling!!! Nikki according to Kadosawa's tweet, so there shouldn't be any big difference except for the late time slot. What's unclear right now is if this will affect their exposure in other prefectures.

Exactly. He has been there from the beginning and is a big part of Idoling family. It would be weird if they just dump him and start using that "Yamazaki" character as their main MC. Maybe we have to start "Bring Back Masuno" campaign ;).

Has anyone watched ミューサタ and had this one of this week?

I have watched it. It is very funny.

If someone have it ,please share it.  Thank you very much.

For any Idolling appearances on other shows i recommend checking this guys/girls videos, not the best quality but they are usually uploaded there pretty quickly. Here is the show you are after musataSP 110402a Idoling!!! fudanjuku (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xhxe2q)

Edit: Didnt realise the video would show up for viewing in this post, incase you didnt realise you gotta click through to watch the other parts of the show.

I hope the next time I go to FujiTV I can see a wall with Idoling!!! pics over there.
When I went last summer, they had the girl's pictures on the wall next to the escalator coming out of Tokyo Teleport but it was extremely disappointing that there was not any other signs of Idoling!!! in Fuji TV especially since it was some summer matsuri event.  There was a pretty big display for Campus Nighters though and entire floors dedicated to Sazae-san and Odoru Daisousasen. 

If the original show is still going, having another show should be a step in the right direction. 

Idoling!!! has it's share of less interesting episodes, but at least it's nowhere near as bad as the H!P shows were after the cancellation of Hello Morning (which had been kind of boring the last year or so anyway).

the new set is just fricking awesome. Its so bright and looks so spacious. Plus the 80's kind of theme is funky in its own way and no micro micro skirt~ yippe! I'm sure Maipuru and Amimi feels glad about that, they didn't look comfortable with the costume before this.

When I watached #730,I felt very sad.

升野 said the TV program is changed. アイドリング!!! changed one corner of the new TV program.

I don't know another people how to think.

In my mind 地上波アイドリング!!! is a symbol of アイドリング!!!. Now, it disappeared. Changed one corner of the new TV program.

Maybe somebody are very happy the new TV program more long then last one. In my mind,it is a bad news.

Now,地上波アイドリング!!! was disappeared. After 2 years or 3 years,what will  disappear?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Ayabie on April 06, 2011, 11:24:31 PM
I know what you're saying, but to be fair 地上波アイドリング!!! never really had any good viewer ratings, so they probably see this new setup as a way to get at least some higher percentage utilizing Yamazaki and other entertainers. We won't really know how this will go until it's on air.

After 2 years or 3 years,what will  disappear?

Well, according to the Taiwanese fortuneteller the group will definitely grow more popular as long as they don't disband in the coming 3 years. :lol:

前を向け 胸を張れ
星は空にしかない
コンビニのお姉さんがクールで
駅が全部都会でクラクラして
たんぼなんかなくて
カラスがぎょうさんおって
駅のお兄さんも超クールで
おまけしてが通じなくて
街中みんなめっちゃ忙しそうにして
大好きなタピオカ屋さんもあるし
電車なんかすぐに来るし
憧れのファッションで街は溢れていて
みんなが素敵でキレイに見えて
流行りだって最先端
それでもたまに冷たい風が吹いてくる
HAH 人混みで立ち止まっている
HAH ワタシどこにいるの?
HAH オカエリが返ってこなくって
レンジでチンしたごはん食べてて 涙がこぼれた
帰りたいけどそんなんいえへん
涙でてるけど泣いてるわけじゃない
でもママの声が聞きたい
ママの声が聞きたい
ひとりでオシャレにお茶に出かけて
カフェオレもたのめるし
コスメ(アクセ)服や(ウィッグも)買ってみたりして
ワタシも素敵にキレイになって
いくみたい?ほんとかしら?
それでもたまに冷たい雨が落ちてくる
HAH 人混みで立ち止まっている
HAH ワタシどこにいるの?
HAH 見慣れた街 見知らぬ人
電車降りたらひとりぼっちで 涙こぼれても
空見上げれば おんなじ青で
その先はつながってみんながいるから
前を向け 胸を張れ
星は空にしかない
いつも なきごとばかり
きかせていたけれど
ほんとはもう
大丈夫やで
心配いらへんよ
あしたから
帰りたいけどそんなんいえへん
涙でてるけど泣いてるわけじゃない
でもママの声が聞きたい
ママの声が聞きたい
空見上げれば おんなじ青で
その先はつながってみんながいるから
前を向け 胸を張れ
星は空にしかない
ウチはまけへんから

Lift your face up, hold your chest high, the stars are not just in the sky
The lady at the convenience store is really cool, the trains here goes to all parts of the city
There's no paddy field, or crows at the fish shop (?)
The guy at the station is super cool, as a service --- (?)
Everyone in the city seems to be so busy
My favorite tapioca store is available, the trains arrive quickly
All those amazing fashions are flooding the city
Everyone is absolutely beautiful and looked very up-to-date
Even so sometimes cold air does blow
HAH the crowds of people suddenly stopped HAH where am I right now?
HAH there are no response when I said "I'm home"
I sat down to eat after heating up food at the kitchen and suddenly tears are flowing out
Though I want to go home but I can't say that out, my tears are coming out but I'm not crying
However I do want to hear Mama's voice... I want to hear Mama's voice
Getting all dressed up alone to go out for a drink, I even tried to order Cafeole (?)
Cosmetics (accessories) Clothings (wigs too) feels like buying them all
It seems that I too can be beautiful? I wonder if that's true?
Even so sometimes the cold rains still falls
HAH the crowds of people suddenly stopped HAH where am I right now?
HAH this familiar city, these unknown people
Although as I step down the train alone my tears starts to drop
If you look up to the sky, its still the same blue sky and beyond that it still connects all of us
Lift your face up, hold your chest high, the stars are not just in the sky
I know that I've let you know that I've always been crying
But its true that its already okay now
There's no need to worry anymore starting from tomorrow
Though I want to go home but I can't say that out, my tears are coming out but I'm not crying
However I do want to hear Mama's voice... I want to hear Mama's voice

The lady at the convenience store is so admirable,
all the train stations look alike my head is spinning
There are no paddy fields,

Everyone in the city seem to be so busy
My favorite tapioca store is available,

All those amazing fashions are flooding the city
Everyone is absolutely beautiful and stunning
led by the latest fads and crazes
But even so I shiver when the cold air blows
Sigh... here I stand among all these people
Sigh... where am I right now?
Sigh... there's no one to return my "I'm home!"
Tears start to run down as I eat my microwaved food
Though I want to go home I can't say it out loud,
these tears don't really mean that I'm crying
However I do want to hear Mama's voice...
I want to hear Mama's voice
I dress up and go out for tea by myself,
there's even café au lait available

and cosmetics (accessories) clothings (wigs too) and I purchase it all
I turn into the beautiful and stunning version of myself
Am I like the others now? I wonder?
Even so sometimes the cold rain fall downs on me

Sigh... here I stand among all these people
Sigh... where am I right now?
Sigh... this familiar city, these unknown people
and it continues as I get off the train, all alone, and as my tears start to drop

and beyond that it connects all of us
Lift your face up, walk with pride,
You can only find the stars in the sky
All I've been doing is crying
I've told you so many times
But you know

It is okay now
There's no need to worry anymore

While I think that would have been great for fans, in this instance I think it works better that they didn't. After reading the translated lyrics I found that the song is about being alone in a place that, while familiar, is still different because of not knowing anyone. If they had met up it would have contradicted the song, especially this line
Quote
Sigh... this familiar city, these unknown people
The PV also shows one of the reasons why Suu-chan is one of my favourites. Her face is so expressive, you can see the emotions on her face clearly.

Post by: Jenus on April 21, 2011, 04:24:13 AM
Well Amimi has said on her radio show that the taping of the new TV show was so funny with the new MC that she felt like a spectator laughing all the time. I'm not a big fan of Yamazaki but he's far more mainstream than Masuno is, so just with him being the MC should draw quite a few more new audience who would tune in to watch him. BTW Yamazaki was on SMAPxSMAP the other night and he totally owned it (as in stirred up his typical nuisance presence) that Kimutaku got mad at him, and not many celebrities would dare make Kimutaku angry, so he's fearless, but I don't know if that's good or bad towards idols, probably bad LOL. I'm going to tune in via Keyhole, but it would be great if someone would record it at least on standard definition, watching through Keyhole is like watching VHS image quality porn from the '80s.

The first time is really bad.

The AV Talk with Idoling!!!?  I don't know what they thnk about.

The opening is all ザキヤマ show.He is not a good MC.I ever saw あいまいナ. It is very boring.

What is  下ネタ the point of the show? ザキヤマ free talk with 後藤 is too long. Idoling!!! are just air.

流れ星->風俗->苺みるく->AV-> Idoling!!!   How to answer ザキヤマ? Even the announcer didn't know how to say.

This week, adult members are all right. But how about next time? AV talks to junior high school's student?

Many people sayed 塩谷 is bad. How about ザキヤマ? He is very good?

Myself,I hope  NO.1 2 4 5 can come back be the MC and regulars. I know maybe this is impossible.

The 4 persons' talk is really good. NO.4 江渡 speak very well.

NO.1 加藤 is different to あみみ,  she often brings members good parts.

I think the new show is worse than なべあちっ!.

I agree, the new show is terrible, first of all, I don't understand the format in which Idoling is presented, why is Idoling even a part of an information TV show? I also didn't like that Maipuru sat all alone apart from the other members and treated differently, I think the female announcer can do announcement bits all by herself, and Maipuru should be a part of the panel. I feel bad for Maipuru even if she'll be a regular on the show as a co-host because all she'll do is read the announcements like a robot.

Then there's the oddly adult-themed content for the information part, what the hell should Idoling members suppose to react to that? What is FujiTV even thinking? I don't sense that FujiTV is even remotely trying their best when it comes to promoting Idoling. In fact I think they are discretely trying to kill Idoling off so they can kiss up to AKB all they like.

And as expected Yamazaki as MC was a one-man show, it was all about him appealing himself, and Idoling members were just tools at his disposal.
I shouldn't have to criticize Yamazaki too much because Suuchan's fans probably are far more mad at him for saying that Suuchan is his type, and making Suuchan publicly turn him down, the guy is a true menace to idol fans.

the adult theme kills it.

It is such a good chance to put Idoling!!! alongside many other geinins but they blew the whole thing by making this 18+ stuff. If this keeps up, it'll be a real pushover. What a waste, could've been a great stuff but so far from the first episode its awkward. sigh..

I agree about #1 is such an awesome MC she knows how to push the members quality up front, that's the real leader quality inside Saya-nee and Amimi on the other hand is more of a geinin/talk personality.

Yamazaki didn't know that many idoling!!! members are under 18. And probably the staffs too.

Try make a survey, probably 80% people that work in fuji tv don't know idoling exist under their roof. sucks.

This has annoyed me to some level, I mean exposing the Idoling!!! girls to this indecent garbage?!   :(
Do they want to impurify them so much? This is nonsense, or maybe they want our girls to act slutty like Hirano Aya!  :bleed eyes:

Post by: burglarnoone on April 23, 2011, 04:12:51 PM
All this negative talks got me quite interested in watching this show now to see how bad it really is. I tuned in on keyhole and the first thing i heard was a joke about Yazawas breasts lol, but the stream quality was so bad i stopped.
I think i differ from alot of peoples views here in terms of 18+ jokes and such, in as much as i am quite happy for the adult girls to act like adults, i dont really subscribe to the whole all idols are pure innocent delicate flowers cause thats just fantasy land to me, i'd prefer people to act themselves no matter the consequences.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: rurika9 on April 23, 2011, 11:06:19 PM
^They need to be pure, that's one of the fundamental elements. If they acted all slutty and said indecent things I'd give up on 3D all together.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: 123SillyBlast on April 23, 2011, 11:26:00 PM
But surely there's something inbetween 'pure' and 'all slutty'. I haven't watched the show, so I don't know how extreme it was, but I agree with burglarnoone about that the girls should be allowed to act their age.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Jenus on April 23, 2011, 11:42:29 PM
It's one thing to be themselves, which I think Idoling is as open as they come in terms of showing who they really are, but it's quite another matter to expose them to such adult content where they get nothing good out of it other than possibly taint their image as an idol group just by association.

How should they respond to such questions as "When was the last time you've kissed?", or "What do you think about hard-working prostitutes?", the exact questions MC threw at Idoling on the the TV show. They simply can't answer these questions honestly, or even acknowledge such questions with a response because it's a no-win situation as an idol.

I'm sure most fans deep in their mind understand that Maipuru is not a virgin, but they really don't need to hear about it either, it'll only damage Maipuru's career as an idol more than anything.

I'm very disappointed in how FujiTV has treated Idoling on the new show, it's as close to killing off an idol group as they come.
I'm almost fearful for the younger members when they are on this show, all I can hope for is that the staff recognizes their mistakes and tone down quite a bit on "adult" content.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: burglarnoone on April 24, 2011, 01:40:14 AM
Oh no don't get me wrong guys, im not saying that it should be all jokes about sex at the idols expense and certainly not sexist material. Remember i havent watched the show yet. I suppose i mean some ribbing of their situation in an 'adult' way isn't offensive to me, if any of you have watched Sayumi on London Hearts especially when Ariyoshi appears the level of ribbing and jokes that go on in that show is fine to me.
 But like i said the sexual/pure concept part for idols does'nt bother me, but i understand that thats a big part of the concept for alot of people and thats cool, im not saying your wrong for taking offense at Yamazaki or anyone else, your feelings are just as valid as mine.

Post by: wq12wq12 on April 24, 2011, 02:04:58 AM
18+ joke is not reason, I never think they are all virgins.

The question is too strange. Be AV女優 can make money fast and more.

How to answer him,say good or bad. This is not important.

Real reson is the show really bored. 芸人 first kiss interview---I never think it is funny.

In 90 minutes I never laugh. ザキヤマ is really not a good MC. He is the MC of the show.

But he did everthing like a guest.

In 塩谷時代,they also did some things like sexy-idol did. But it is funny.

In the show,even used 18+joke it is still boring. Why? I really don't know why.

Yes, of course. those are essential rules for idol unit.
Idoling!!! is more loose on member's image (damn, i don't know the right english).
Watch Fonchi & Amimi LOL'd when Asahi wrote SOD on episode 733. Also there is story about someone gave Maipuru a lotion (with Saori Hara's cover) on handshake event. Also watch episode 704 (Topic: Ojima x Yazawa). Of course they are embarrassed when talking about that, but they definitely know it. But looks like of over-20 members, only Umeko who is really pure. Members who are over 20, they are free to talk anything as long as it's not 放送禁止 material. On episode 734, over-18 members talked about their Taiwan trip that most of their recorded video are 放送禁止 . Also on uRa Idoling!!! - 20101210, Yazawa's answer was cut.

You will know how different they are if you watch them live on the spot.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: rurika9 on April 24, 2011, 05:54:24 PM
Wow, had no idea? wonder what they spoke about for it to be 放送禁止... Penis? I kid.
It sounds to me that in certain instances they try their hardest not to say something risqué. I suppose if you want to keep it pure, stick with loli idol units.

Post by: mixedmedia on April 25, 2011, 12:07:55 PM
Hearing how bad the new show is confirmed my fears about it. Zakiyama's pretty crass.  Ariyoshi would have been better.  Even though I had my fears about him hosting an AKB show he's done quite well and behaved himself for the most part.

At least I still have a ton of leftover shows to DL and watch from Acchi Muite Pie.

Post by: Ayabie on April 25, 2011, 09:33:05 PM
Yamazaki is getting too much shit for nothing. :lol: Don't hate the player(s), hate the game as they say. Whoever did the casting for this show obviously knows he's useless by himself and absolutely not a comedian fit for the MC position, so they added Football Hour. But yeah, judging from the first episode this was a very uninteresting show.

If they keep this shit up the show will be gone by October, and Idoling!!! better not go down with it.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Jenus on April 25, 2011, 10:03:41 PM
Ariyoshi is a lap dog for AKB, he will kill himself before he tries anything nasty on AKB because he belongs to the same agency that Maeda Atsuko, Oshima Yuko, Sashihara Rino and Kitahara Rie also belong at, so basically they are all in the same boat. His stance is not exclusive to himself when dealing with AKB either, AKB has become too powerful even for any young comedians to mess with, because they know their career will be in the gutter if they even make enemies with Akimoto producer by making fun of AKB.

I am willing to give the new show a second shot, but many signs indicate that it's not encouraging, and if things stay bad, it would be best for Idoling that the show gets cancelled as soon as possible. If FujiTV is not totally stupid, Idoling should get another public channel TV show to continue their exposure to the mainstream audience, as little as it may be.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: mixedmedia on April 25, 2011, 11:32:28 PM
^
Thanks! I didn't know about that.  Looking back now Ariyoshi did host another show and was well behaved so I guess I didn't have that knowledge at the time either.  I only knew of him trashing people on London Hearts.  I'll hold final judgement until I see the show for myself but, seeing how Zakiyama is on other shows and hearing other people's reactions, I hope this is only a temporary detour and the show finds it's place or is replaced by a better show format w/ better MCs. 

Anyone else saw the Idoling!!! Batzminton episode on the TV at the beginning of the first episode of BOSS 2?

Yeah,I knew about that for some time and that's reason I started watching BOSS. Now quickly catching up on season 1 as it's a great show! :)


And I also only knew Ariyoshi from trashing people on London Hearts. He did also host the short-lived "Idol-chin" which had Saya-nee on it, and he seemed to behave as well. Probably for the same reasons.

Did anyone use the English Wikipedia when they were first getting to know Idoling? If no, then this post is kinda useless.

I've made a few contributions to it (look for "soursimon" under the history), but the page is still lacking a certain... WHA-BAM!
It just reeks of underdevelopment, and that might taint the group's up-and-coming image to the English audience: If something looks like it's not a big deal, it isn't.

Does any have any free-use photos they took of the group? Or suggestions?

TOTALLY UNRELATED, but I didn't see a Petit • Petit page.
Does anyone know the solo order for Forever Remember? I've seen a few lives, but I know they're substituting members. I got this far:

Tonooka > Asahi > Morita (live: Yokoyama) > Okawa > Endo
"???" (live: Yokoyama) > "???" (live: Okawa) > Miyake > Endo

Most of the latest changes on the english wiki were done by me, like adding 4th gen, completing the members' flowers, some of the latest history and some discography. (You'll find those under Hatix in the history :) )

So free-use pictures would include pictures you've taken yourself? Then I can add a pic to Yazawa's page :)

I have no comments to からの,but I got a notion to the title.

Maybe, just maybe,it's just my supposition.

Maybe FUJITV wants to give the show for KARA at the started. (からの->KARAの)

FUJI pushes K-POP.

FUJI  also created K Theater.And Koren Idols also went to HEY!X3 many times.

So it is just my supposition.  If KARA got no troubles,maybe からの is KARAの.

He probably means that Japanese P2P program known as "Share". I think it's too much hassle to figure it out and download something with it. I couldn't even find a proper download link.

I'm just unable to upload them right now, as I haven't got a decent internet connection here on vacation and I'm moving from hotel to hotel all the time.

At the earliest on May 29th you may get new updates, but on the 30th or 31st for sure. Sorry for the delay... I miss it too  :O

Yes, Share is a japanese P2P software, it's like eMule. Before I found "2011.05.05 #742 品はちライブ" in Share, so I guess it's Hatix direct put it in Share because he can't update the AMP website...

Itou Yuuna(15), Hashimoto Kaede(14), Asahi Nao(17) from idol group, Idoling!!! are starring in Fuji TV's drama [Secret Girls] which airs on Fuji TV's video site Misanga. (Premiers on the 16th, updates once per month with 11 episodes total)

Balancing life as an idol and a middle school student, this story is about facing love and dream. Mihashi Nanami(15) Tomita Mayu(15) are selected from audition and will join these three in a drama's first idol group [Secret Girls] which are will participate in activities on and off the screen.

There will be a lot of fashionable items appearing, which will capture the hearts of teenage girls and aspiring them to be an idol unit worshiped by the same generation. Booths and live events are scheduled for Odaiba Gasshukoku 2011. The drama will also be on DVD included in monthly magazine [Chao] which starts selling on the 2nd.

Probably got the new girls name right, but you can't be sure with Japanese names :P

From how this photo was shot, I guess the two girls picked from the audition is not the main lead, that's a sigh of relief, although I'm concerned about Asahi's acting a little...haha. I suppose I should be worried about all 3 of them though with practically zero acting experience.

I'm not sure what ラーイ means but the most probable translation(according to the online dictionary) ラーイ means ray. Watching Amimi hand gesture during the PV, this is probably the most appropriate translation of it.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: rurika9 on July 02, 2011, 06:21:16 PM
^ But if it was 'Ray' wouldn't the katakana read: 'レイ!!!' or 'レーイ!!!'? (or something like that...).
It might be 'Lie' because 'ラーイ!!!' is pronounced 'ra-i!!!'

According to google translate it's "For example ... I do not belive you ... Ray!!!"? She doesn't pronounce it like Ray but Rai as in Lie.

In other words lol, it could be interpreted as Lie!!! as in not the truth.

(It kind of makes sense given the context)

I personally don't mind watermarks if it means better quality

How many of these band version lives are there of Idoling!!!? I just come across this today lol It's really awesome.

It's my favourite song so I'm incredibly stoked to see that song performed live by the members.

Me ni Aoba rendition at the countdown is also pretty cool. I like how all the members contributed, however little, with musical instrument part in the song.

I imagine performing one of these songs take a lot of practice so they cannot do a lot of them. However, one per live would be truly awesome:)

check out this unique cover

EDIT:

I was wondering, since the DaijinaMono album upload online is at a terrible 192kbps... :nervous Any chance a kind soul that owns the album could upload in 320kbps mp3 or FLAC? I really want to listen to Snow Celebration in better bitrate! This would be kindly appreciated.

I do actually intend to purchase all Idoling!!!'s CDs when I go to Japan next :lol:

I wish they would put the shirts on display on something so we could see the design on the back of the shirts too.

write the statement in both english and japanese.
this time we demand Idoling!!! official youtube channel and open worldwide.
SOW and DTF are pretty famous among Fairy Tail fans worldwide. It is about time for Idoling!!! to have official youtube channel.

If your top bar is too small, you need to customize it.
Customize toolbar >
1. add one new blank toolbar.
2. move back/forward/stop/refresh/address bar/search bar from navigation toolbar to the new toolbar. keep the home button on navigation bar.
3. add bookmark toolbar if you haven't yet.
4. if you like the old menu bar, you can add it.
that will make the top bar looks higher, also the address bar/search bar will not blocking the background.

I do have it in my pc, inside a folder tagged as "DVD". IIRC it is from the one of the singles/album specials, which comes with the dvd. I'm putting my guess, Ganbare Otome, Snow Celebration or Daiji na Mono. But I cannot find it in AMP either.... Been a long time already.

Idoling!!! Hajimete no Recording I ~Hyakkaryouran Idoling!!!~
Idoling!!! Hajimete no Recording II ~Ganbare Otome (Warai)
Idoling!!! Hajimete no Recording III ~Kimi ga Suki~

I think it comes together with this :
Idoling!!! - Neoki Dokkiri Video (Snow celebration Bonus Episode)

The Hajimete no Recording videos were FOD-exclusive videos that were released before the release of Ganbare Otome (Warai). They were not posted on AMP, but they are in my MediaFire repository. Here's a direct link to that folder: http://www.mediafire.com/?kg9c8yfkuy69j (http://www.mediafire.com/?kg9c8yfkuy69j)

BTW, the search function in AMP is broken. It will not return results from any post before September 2010. I know it's a quite crucial feature for a blog of that nature, but we're working on a long-term workaround for it, so it might be a while. For now, just search my MediaFire repository for older files: http://www.mediafire.com/idoling (http://www.mediafire.com/idoling)

The shows are held at Yoshimoto Prince Theater about 5 minutes walk from JR Shinagawa station. http://www.yoshimoto.co.jp/ypt/theater.html (http://www.yoshimoto.co.jp/ypt/theater.html)
You can get the tickets on the day the show is held(but only limited to second floor seats). The ticket counter opens at 10:30am and usually fans line-up at around 9:45am. The tickets costs 3000yen.

Be careful when the last shinkansen for Kyoto is (which is around 21h I think for JR Pass holders), but since they all stop at Shinagawa anyway, you don't have to go to Tokyo station first :)

You are supposed to buy them before the event but when I went to Sofmap yesterday there are still event tickets left. So I think it is not too late to buy the dvd now.

The Segaclub next to Sofmap had an Idoling!!! Gatchapon so I fed it until i got a Yazawa charm. It only took 5 cranks so It was a good day all around.  :nervous

I hope to make it to the Friday Shinahachi but I'm not sure I can get there early enough from Kyoto.

That's great! Have fun! :twothumbs
A few tips:
- During the photo shoot session, you'll gather in front of her with about 7 people and you get 90 seconds (no less, no more), she will keep switching between every person and do different faces/gestures/poses. Don't be shy and just click away, even when she's not looking in your direction so you'll have plenty of pictures. I had about 40-50 pics and I only started taking pics also when she wasn't looking when I noticed others just kept clicking away. There was one guy who had about 200 pics, she commented on it and asked how many ;p
- I don't know how tall you are, but Yazawa is quite small (1m50), so when you take the 2-shot together, bend a little bit through your knees. Otherwise you'll tower out above her and that's not such a nice composition in the resulting picture ;) Do know that checki's are very small, but you can scan them at high resolution and print it out enlarged afterwards :)

Thanks for the tips. I am a pretty serious photographer and I've shot hundreds of models and wannabe models. This will be my first idol to pose for me though. Do they allow flash? I'd rather not use it unless the light is weak. I'm 33cm taller than her, it would be a better shot if my head was cut out of it but I guess I'll get at her level. Do you choose a pose?

Btw, where does line form to get in?

Here's my blog post (http://blog.jpopdb.org/index.php/blog/traveling/tokyo-2010/yazawa-erika-dvd-release-event) of the release event that I went to. In the last picture, you can see the 2-shot chekki. Don't pay too much attention to the system of how to get in in my post as it is likely a little different, seeing that you have to be there only 15 minutes in advance in your case.
Seems like you're about the same height as me, I'm 32cm taller than her  :lol:, so bend a bit through your knees ;)
Yes, they allow flash, some even had huge gear with them. The light conditions were okay, though they could be a little bit better (but then again, mine was at Ishimaru, not at Sofmap). And yes, you can choose a pose for the 2-shot chekki if you want :)
You might be surprised, but there will probably be a few female fans at her release event :) (there were a few at mine)

Whatever you guys do, try not to look as nerdy as the basic idoling fan. :lol:

Lol, this post compelled me to share my impressions of the two Idoling x YGA concerts I went to in July. I guess I should explain that while I'm a big Idoling fan, I'm not a "hardcore" fan (hardcore defined as someone who buys every single and dvd) and definitely not a wota. As for YGA... I'm a fan of Hinata Sayo, but outside of her I don't follow the group.

I went to the July 17th and 18th shows. The 7-17 show was Ai's birthday and the 18th was something like "Fonchi" day (a lot of her fans were in attendance and she performed a solo song, Ayumi Hamasaki's "Seasons"). On the 17th I was in row 4 and on the 18th, I had front row (this info is relevant for part two of my write-up.) I was surprised at how few songs Idoling performed. I think they did 5 at both shows, and then Ai (or Fonchi) did their solo songs. YGA on the other hand performed 8-10 songs. It was a lot easier to get into their set because they performed more songs, they're higher energy performers, and Idoling has a tendency of constantly breaking into a MC segment after 2 songs. YGA just went straight through their music. Just pointing this out for overseas fans of Idoling who want to go to a Shinahachi show. If you are fluent in Japanese I'm sure the variety segments would be more enjoyable though.

Now on to what I really wanted to write about. There is some weird stuff that happens at these shows though that I wanted to share. Which is why I found the quote about nerdy Idoling fans amusing. Their Japanese fanbase truly are nerds :lol:. There is a pretty interesting dynamic at these shows because they involve two pop groups that are very different. There are the Idoling-only wota, the YGA-only wota, the wota of both, and then the fans of both, fans of one or the other, and then YGA haters (lame, I know, but also kind of funny). There are also no girls at these concerts. Outside of the girl that handed me glowsticks for Ai's birthday, I think there were only 1 or 2 other girls in attendance. I saw PASSPO the night before and there were hundreds of girls. Obviously that was a bigger concert, but there are different demographics among the idol groups.

I think it is common knowledge, but if not, at the Shinahachi shows Idoling and YGA alternate sets, sometimes YGA opens and Idoling finishes, and vice-versa. Depending on which group is opening, the wota's are wearing either their Idoling or YGA t-shirts. And there are a lot of them, particularly in the front area where I was located. Once one group finishes, there is about a 2-3 minute break until the other group takes the stage. During that period something weird happens. The wotas that are fans of both groups rip off their shirts and grab a towel out of their bags (you can bring bags into this venue btw) and frantically try to clean all of the sweat off them, and then put on the shirt of the group that is coming up. It was weird and gross to suddenly be surrounded by a bunch of sweaty wotas changing their clothes. The guy sitting next to me also didn't like YGA so during their set, he sat down with his back to the group :O (this was when I had 4th row seats, so I don't know if the group could see him.) It is also common for fans of only one group to just leave when their group finishes.

Another weird thing that that happens is constant seat changing. If someone is a huge fan of one of the girls, and they have a solo coming up, that fan is going to ask a total stranger to switch seats with them for that song. And they usually agree. Maybe it's the polite thing to do, but when a Fonchi fan from who the hell knows where asked me to switch seats during her solo, I politely refused (I don't like Fonchi but why should I have to switch out just because someone asked me to? For all I know he could have come from the balcony). I don't get why someone would ask the only white guy in attendance to switch seats. Obviously mass-seat switching occurs between Idoling-only and YGA-only fans during their sets. For both shows, I was constantly sitting next to a different wota XD.

After the show is over, the handshake line starts to form. For those that don't have a ticket, they just relax in their seat... and take off their shirts again and towel off their sweat. Nerds :lol:

edit: After re-reading what I wrote, I hope I didn't give a negative image of either Idoling or YGA or possibly discourage anyone from seeing a Shinahachi show. If you are a fan, I would definitely recommend it  :thumbup. I just wanted to point out some stuff that I found interesting. Also wanted to clarify that owning a Idoling/YGA shirt doesn't make you a nerd or wota... although I think at the shows I went to that was the case :).
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: hellguard89 on September 06, 2011, 04:21:03 AM
I would like add on some things:

There are only a few number of girls at Shinahachi. I've seen girls at every Shinahachi that I went to but because the male fans heavily outnumbers them they didn't stand out much.

YGA doesn't have many songs to choose from but almost all of them are intense, upbeat songs while Idoling!!! have a bigger pool of songs to choose ranging from different genre. It is easier for a wota to remember all of YGA songs because you see the same performance in every live. Having less songs also made YGA performance more polished than Idoling!!!.

From the Shinahachi that I have been to, what I can grasp is giving out front row seats to fans of certain member/group is seen as wota manerism. I noticed that some guy is in the front row of every YGA live and I'm pretty sure that he doesn't get those front row seat tickets every time. Also too add, these front row fans are also the jumpers that you can see on Shinahachi episodes :banghead:

YGA MC is pretty boring in my opinion. Their MCs are heavily scripted while Idoling!!!, clearly having the experience in variety shows did unscripted MCs. Idoling!!! MCs are pretty much free talk between members on the topic that they had decided beforehand.

Like qwiksXnd said, they are fans of both group, Idoling!!!-only fans, YGA-only fans and haters. It is sad to see these haters just sit down and doing nothing during the live. What a shitty way to spend your money. Fans taking off their shirts and toweling off is a common sight at Shinahachi :P

After the show, if you stay inside for a while, you get to see the members closer during the handshake event in the lobby outside even though you have no tickets :twisted:

PS. Me and Ayabie went to the show on the 18th but I certainly didn't noticed any foreigners in the crowds :P

in regards to switching places during a concert,

this is a practice common in underground idol live. If you have been to some small scale idol's show, you'd get to know each other pretty quick due to the small amount of attendance. Because of that, everyone helps each other so that they can get to see their favorite idols as close as possible or at least make them noticeable to the idol that they like.

I have friends who are a big fan of @gumi and he did mentioned that if they already know you like certain members even if you didn't do anything, they would push you up to the front so that you could be there for your idol during her solo. Its a standard procedure for a small gig/live. I had no idea about this at all when I was at the Shimokita FM gig last year and only towards the end that there was this Japanese guy who knew I came to see PASSPO pushed me all the way to the front when they were performing. No one complained, it was pretty cool IMO.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 06, 2011, 05:04:53 AM
Yeah, you can see the girls up close when you exit (for me it was "stare at Ami and permanently lock in a mental image" time)

For the first show I arrived late (I sat down at my seat and the show started a few seconds later) so I wasn't able to buy a handshake ticket. When the show ended I got in the handshake line though. I thought it was the exit line, oops. I'm glad I figured it out before getting too close and embarrassing myself. The theater is easy to find except if you arrive in Shinagawa station and the show starts in 5 minutes XD. And this is your first time in Shinagawa. And the only directions that you memorized are "it's across the street".

in regards to switching places during a concert,

Seat changing was definitely done in the spirit of comradery, so I thought it was a nice thing for fans to do. Although I don't think the regulars should ask obvious foreigners to trade, since we're not necessarily aware of the practice and we pay a lot more for the ticket than they do. Westerners are also very territorial. I had already claimed my chair as a U.S. territory.

Was the Shimokita FM gig with PASSPO the event that Rumi co-hosted?

edit: Aww that sucks, sorry to hear that. I'm a huge Rumi fan also.

yeah that was the particular gig except I went to the morning gig which was co-hosted by Noto Arisa. I had no idea at all that Rumi is going to be co-hosting the evening gig. I realized about the fact on the next day and it was like the worst crushing feeling ever, missing Rumi by just a few hours...

I've been to 2 Shinahachi lives and I must say most of this sounds familiar  XD
I like to join the wota-ing during the live, and I make sure I'm wearing a t-shirt and/or scarf of my favorite one (in my case a yazawa t-shirt & sakacchi scarf). One small part of wota fandom that I experienced was that when you sit next to someone who has the same favorite member as you (because he sees your t-shirt/scarf) he will shake hands with you and say that she's also his favorite :)
I didn't notice the switching seats at all actually, probably because I was too thrilled to see the live ;p
But the changing shirts certainly is obvious  :lol: It already starts when they arrive with their work clothes on and start undressing to change into a t-shirt of their favorite member. It's the Office-Worker-Into-Wota transformation cycle *henshiiiin*  :D
There were indeed a few girls in the audience when I went.
But Idoling!!! only 4-5 songs? I thought it was much more on my first shinahachi, but a few less at my second. But then again, both my Shinahachis had no cameras present, which may be why there were a little more songs.
I still remember each face from the hand shaking :oops: and when I think about it..  :w00t:   :inlove:
I'm looking forward to be able to go to another one!

Edit:
Some extra wota fandom that me and kei_86 experienced was at the 9th live. We were just lining up for the goods (well in advance), and suddenly a guy comes at us asks us who our favorite members are and he went off. A little later he came back and gave us toreka of our favorite member for free. I find that an excellent example of wota helping each other. I'm certainly taking along my double toreka too,if I get the chance to go back again :)

just want to add a bit to what Peter has said,

not only the Japanese wota gave us the toreka of our favorite idol, he gave us ALL the toreka of our favorite idol that he owns. I feel so bad for taking so much but having nothing to return to him. This year I'm gonna go prepared and hope to meet the guy again so that I can give him some Kaepyon stuff to repay what he has done.

Japanese wota can be really awesome when it comes to supporting the scene at times.

The most important thing about being a "fan" in Japan is all about connections. As long as you know a guy that know other guys, you can literally get front row seats for every event if you're prepared to cash out some yen, that's why it's not at all uncommon to see the same persons hogging the first rows during concerts. Same deal with the YGA/Idoling!!! pact that a couple of fans have going on during Shinahachi.

And yeah, hellguard and I totally missed you somehow, qwiksXnd. lol

They start selling handshake tickets an hour before the theater is open. They sell out almost every time too, so it is better to go there around 5:30pm today.

For YGA, you need to buy YGA CDs if you want to shake hands with them.

Post by: miitan on September 09, 2011, 04:17:24 PM
Thanks again to the help from this forum, I saw Idoling!!! tonight and did the handshake!  :w00t: There was already a long line for the handshake tickets when I got there at 5:30 but there were plenty of tickets. They were still selling them after the theater doors opened actually.

They had 10 members present and it was the birthday show for Suuchan and Amimi. There were a couple of huge floral displays in the lobby and fans had put cards and glow-sticks in all of the seats. The center section was yellow and the sides were pink. Idoling performed first, probably because of the 2 under-aged members, and did about 8 songs and they had a very long MC segment with Amimi and Suuchan challenging other members in various games. Amimi challenged Maiple at stuffing the most marshmallows into their mouths and it was as hilarious as expected.

The birthday girls did a duet together and that's when everyone broke out the glow-sticks. They came out one at a time after YGA was finished to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. Of course Amimi could talk for 24 hours straight if you let her and she started talking about Manami, most of which I didn't follow but apparently Manachan has been very inspiring to Amimi recently. I got to see the famous tears in person at that point and then a tearful Manachan came out from the wings and hugged her.

I love all of Idoling!!! but, of course, I have my faves. Yazawa is #1 and I will meet her on Sunday. Manachan and Asahi would be next on my list and I got to meet them tonight. I got some good reactions from the girls tonight so it was well worth the time and expense. Thanks again for all the assistance!  :bow:

Wow, Ami and Suu-chan. That's both amizing and suuper. No puns intended.

I didn't know YGA did handshakes too. Is it possible to buy a ticket for both groups? Or would it be impossible to attend both (I'm assuming their handshake lines are in a different area, because I don't remember seeing YGA at the exit).

I read this entire thread before venturing to Japan and it was helpful to me as well. I was surprised at how many fans on this forum have been to their concerts. Within the other groups I follow, it's really uncommon. It's like: "Go to one of their concerts?! Impossible. Well, unless they visit Iceland. Wait, have you heard something?! They're coming to Iceland!? OMG they're coming to Iceland!".

You can do handshakes with both groups if you buy CD's for both. After the long line for Idoling!!! there was no line at all for YGA   :cry:

There are people lining up for YGA although not as much people as Idoling!!!. It is just YGA handshake event starts almost 30 minutes after Idoling!!! finished with their handshake event. Most of the people lining up either shake hands with Idoling!!! first or went somewhere else and come back later.

Post by: qwiksXnd on September 15, 2011, 07:49:49 AM
Aww, that's what I was afraid of. It's sad at handshake and 2-shot events when the unpopular girls are never called up to take a photo. During one handshake event with my favorite indie group, when I was shaking the hand of unpopular girl, I forgot her name (or more accurately I never knew her name to begin with). When she asked me to say her name, I tried to check my phone really quickly (because I had their homepage bookmarked), but I wasn't slick enough and she was really embarrassed when I guessed wrong. She must have thought, "Wow, even "hardcore fans" don't know my name".

Now that I think about it, is Idoling the only group that doesn't have "unpopular" members?
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: miitan on September 15, 2011, 08:45:34 AM
At the Shinahachi on 9/9 when I was in line for Idoling!!! handshake, I saw the YGA girls at a table opposite of us shaking hands with fans. There were only about 5 people getting handshakes at that time. I didn't know that they create a line later so I just felt bad for YGA.

The Idoling!!! team does a good job of making sure that every member gets a chance for exposure so I think that ensures that they have plenty of fan support. Of course the girls with the strongest personalities are going to get the most camera time. There is one member that I would have thought might have fewer fans, just because she is such an non-traditional idol, but I saw plenty of her t-shirts at the shows I went to.

Speaking of which, I was at Tower Records in Shinjuku this morning and I saw a guy in a Rurika jersey/shirt. Is that something they all buy through the fanclub?

It's a little complicated  XD
Numbering t-shirts are always sold at the larger concerts with both fanclub and non-fanclub versions (not always the case,but it was like this at 9th live, you had to show your fanclub card, no ID check though, so you could actually pass it to someone else).
Left over stock is put in the fan club online shop. The non-fanclub numbering t-shirts are put in FujiTV's online shop, that one also carries the gasshuukoku numbering t-shirt.

I didn't expect much from this show when I heard SDN was also appearing, I had a fear that Idoling was going to be portrayed poorly again, and surely enough sponsorship power-play put in a nice script for a dramatic finish and victory for SDN by having them beat their real biggest threat in Idoling.

But in hindsight, Idoling came out of it in a very good position, I don't think I got this impression just because I'm a fan, but I think Idoling left the most favorable impression of them all. The variety members did their job in getting laughs, and Aichan at the end pretty much upstaged Serina of SDN in the final match with her battelcry and tears of defeat. Idoling pretty much covered all the bases, it speaks volumes of how polished Idoling is in a variety show environment.

I don't know what's with Momoko, is she singlehandedly trying to destory Hello Project's image? Anyway she was just being a nuisance and a circus clown that it worked negatively on the rest of Berryz.

I think Passpo and SuperGirls really hate each other, that shoving altercation was wild!!

Where is Momoiro Clover? Scheduling conflict perhaps? Surely, they are more suitable to be in this show than some others...

Next upcoming show for Idoling is Heyx3 I believe, and again another idol group special, can't wait!

Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 18, 2011, 02:25:17 AM
I think there is still the track and field part of the show left.

Disappointed in the "theme" of the competition. It's annoying that these girls have to be continually reminded of AKB's status, especially for an established group like Idoling. A lot of these groups aren't competing with AKB or aspire to be anything like them. I don't go out of my way to avoid AKB, but I'd prefer not to get exposed to them on shows they aren't participating in.

It's kind of weird to see idols interacting like this. As a fan you side with your #1 group, which means you could be rooting against your possible #2,3 and 4 group. On paper it sounds cool to have idols together, but the show was too heavily edited, way too short, and I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a light-hearted competition, or if the girls should be going for the kill.

I was rooting for Ai to win the sumo event, but isn't Hitomi Sakai their sumo "specialist"? And the groups should have watched the Morning Musume mecha-mecha sports festival, because the secret to high jumping is the "Fosbury flop". That's how Mako P won, and that's how the girl won this time. Speaking of that show, I think that format is much funner. It's just one group, so it avoids the awkward tension.

I think Passpo and SuperGirls really hate each other, that shoving altercation was wild!!
Yeah, that looked weird, like it wasn't scripted :O. I don't follow super girls, but Shiori from PASSPO is the ultimate "genki" type idol. She is really sweet (and really eccentric), but she also loves competition. I don't think the groups dislike each other, but I wouldn't be surprised if the fanbases did, just because of the philosophical and ideological differences between the two groups. (I could actually go into great detail about how completely different these groups are, but I don't think it's the time, place, or time). I'm seeing PASSPO again in November, during the handshake event I'll ask her how she feels about SG (jk, I can't ask her that XD).

I could see Idoling!!! did it on purpose. Giving sumo battle to Sakacchi would be an easy win, but there is no merit to win in their own homeground. There were soo many comment on twitter "It is obvious if Idoling!!! win the match, because it is Fuji TV show". Everyone knows that win or lose, Ai-chan will cry. Also Amimi did great job there.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: miitan on September 18, 2011, 02:49:57 AM
Funny show, thanks for the links.

Aichan is always intense when it comes to sumo battles. I would have liked to see more exposure for other Idoling!!! girls but with that many idols in a show, you take what you can get and on shows like Mechaike, getting picked on by the hosts is the ultimate compliment. Amimi won that battle among the members with her sudden exposure as a Filipino bar girl.  :D It was also funny when they went to ask Maiple about Idoling's rival and Amimi pushed to the front to answer.

The Passpo vs Super*Girls thing was all in fun, you can see most of the members laughing about it during the "fight"

And I think Momoko from Berryz Kobo pretty much owned the show as far as getting exposure and camera time. Her thing is to be an "irritating idol" and she worked it to perfection. She will get a lot of invitations to other shows if she can prove to be a reliable provider of laughs.

AKB48 is the top idol group of the moment, like it or not. Their level of popularity is what other groups aim for. The members of Idoling!!! like and respect them. They get name checked on the TV show and during MC's pretty regularly. Under hypnosis they will even admit to be willing to become "IDN48"  :lol:
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 18, 2011, 03:07:35 AM
Yeah, I could see how Idoling prioritized the entertainment value of a loss, over an easy win. Is Ai's history with the sumo game common knowledge outside of the Idoling fandom? It's just weird that she lost to the girliest member of SDN. She handled the loss well, but if she won it would have powered-up the entire fanbase *nerd smiley*.

I did forgot about the Fuji TV angle though. Mecha-mecha should just do an Idoling-only special like they did with Morning Musume.

Ami was great, she's such an asset to the group. She shows that you can still get camera time by being interesting, and not resort to blatant camera-whoring.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Jenus on September 18, 2011, 05:04:50 AM
I don't think anything about Idoling is common knowledge in the mainstream, basically only the fans are in the know so to speak.
I really think this show did help showcase Idoling quite a bit though, they really know how to seize the moment with all the training they got from Bakarhythm for sure. While Momoko did get her own share of spotlight as an individual, the rest of the Berryz were totally lost in the shuffle. Smileage kids are just not very savvy in that area and it shows. Passpo and SuperGirls have no personality to speak of.

As for the slender Serina winning, it's clearly fixed, when you see the match vs. Aichan, you could tell that Aichan had a lot of momentum going by pushing Serina back at the beginning but then she just stopped pushing and let Serina to hang around and made it appear as if Aichan lost her balance at the end, yeah right, as if Serina has such strength and body mass to overcome that. What I really hate about these type of shows is that it's scripted, and they always let the most popular group win to emphasize the miracle factor, and drill the false belief of AKB always wins because they are special theme into the audience, yuck. I wasn't born yesterday and I sure ain't buying it.

Idoling sumo is for real though without fixing, that's why I love Idoling.

Mecheike won't do an Idoling special the way things are right now, Mechaike is an golden-hour show with top-tier popularity, Idoling alone just isn't big enough for prime time.

I think Amimi is very strong outside the comfort zone, but there are some members who clearly shy away when they are outside the comfort zone, namely Asahi and Yazawa, these two really need to step up to the plate because I know they have the stuff.

On second thought, I think it's too late for Yazawa though, she has become too self-aware and doesn't want to act goofy in a prime-time stage it seems, possibly to prolong her career in acting as an actress or something. 4th gen. members were invisible, were they even there? Well they are still amateurs in the variety arena but for gods sake they have to start showing something to indicate a hint that they belong in Idoling. I'm just not very thrilled with 4th gen. no matter how I look at things, at the least they should start improving in singing, but still nobody is showing any signs of having the diva talent either.

Yeah, it's time for 5th gen. audition, and discover a new singing sensation to continue the legacy of Idoling's divine vocal lineage.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: miitan on September 18, 2011, 05:14:27 AM
eh, I think 4th gen is pretty awesome myself.  :?

With most TV shows, and especially these types, you don't really know who stepped up and did what. Hours of footage is left unused as the producers and editors try and carve it down to fit what they want to accomplish in the allotted time.

That's another fun thing about the Idoling!!! TV show, they pretty much just roll the camera for XX minutes and let whatever happens happen.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: qwiksXnd on September 18, 2011, 07:51:11 AM
I'll remember this special as the Anti-Tokyo Idol Festival. TIF promotes idol groups in a positive way, allows idols to meet, collaborate with, and possibly become friends with girls from other groups, and is an opportunity for fans to open their minds (at least temporarily) to the groups outside their comfort zone.

On the other hand I think there is unavoidable negativity that goes with idols competing against each other. It's one thing for different JE or H.P groups to compete in their own festivals, but there is a different dynamic when unrelated groups from different labels and agencies are involved. This kind of competition also does some strange things to the different fanbases, which I think is the worst thing of all.

Idol groups have different strengths and weaknesses, and this show was way too superficial and poorly produced to make an accurate assessment of any of the groups.

Agreed! I was disappointed when they first joined Idoling and still kinda am. They're lifeless, not very good looking and their singing makes my ears bleed. If these 5 were the "best" among 5000 of them, then the rest of the girls must have been freaking horrible.

That Hello-Online page has a Megaupload link to the orignal Japanese "closed caption" subtitle file for the Mechaike episode.

Did it occur to anyone else to stick it through Google Translate and see what happened, or just me?

It comes out like a very bad "HK sub" and can be a bit of a gibberish-y mess but with a bit of common sense/minor japanese knowedge I'd say it helps you follow the show a bit better than not having any subs at all.  I know I picked up stuff I missed first time round. (then again, I'm very bad at japanese)

Steps:

1. Rename it as a .txt file instead of .srt (or save a new copy as a .txt file)

2. Open it in Notepad and have a second empty Notepad window open too.

3. Use Google Translate's "translate a document" and choose the .txt file.

4. You'll notice the translation stops mid way through.  Copy and paste the translated bit into your blank Notepad document and delete that bit from the original .txt file.  (The lines are numbered, so it's easy to get the right point)

5. Save the original file (which should now start where the translation ended), go back in your browser and translate it again.  Repeat step 4.

6. Keep doing this until the whole thing is translated (I think it was 3 times for this file).

7. Save your new translated file as an .srt with the same name as your video file.  (use UTF-8 if you need to)

8. Use Find & Replace to change all of the -> into --> and < into a blank space to fix the formatting in your new file.  My copy of Notepad froze once when I did this step, but it worked OK using Wordpad.  Also change the numbers above the first 10 lines back into numbers instead of words (1 instead of one) to match the original file. and you can use Find & Replace to fix the most obvious mis-translations (idle to idol, idling to Idoling, mileage to smileage, tea oil/oil tea to Mechaike, other names if you know them, etc...).

9. Save it again.

That should work.

There may be some sync/timing issues depending on ad breaks being cut differently in the .srt and video files.  Easily fixed in a subbing program though.  I was trying to sync it with a saved copy of the youtube version and it wasn't a problem until halfway though the second part.  The original mp4 file could be from the same source as the .srt, and you won't need to split & re-sync the file to match the youtube parts anyway.

If nothing else it could be a good starting point if someone wanted to properly fansub the show as some of the translation & most of the timing is already done and you just need to tidy it up, make it more readable, fix the worst bits and translate the on screen captions (as they left those out).

Presumably easier than starting from scratch, anyway.

I just though I'd share it as an idea.

Also there are English subs for all of the crossover eps of Idoling!!! and AKBINGO. I don't know if they are available for download anywhere this many years later though.

Oh wow do we really need to see AKB stuff in here as if AKB hasn't infested the rest of the Jpop forums enough?

And those episodes are like 2 years ago old, no need to bring it up just because of AKB tie-in, who cares. People need to stop making a big fuss about AKB just because they are popular now, not everybody likes them, especially from this Idoling fan since that AKB collaboration was forced upon by AkiP through corporate power-play so that AKB would set its foot inside FujiTV.

Hidden agenda?  Sounds like he's just a fan of both groups.  Is there something wrong with liking more than one idol group?  Is it wrong to like both Idoling and AKB?  This is a thread about discussing Idoling, correct?  Idoling and AKB did a collaboration way back when, correct?  I'd say it's a valid discussion, even if it does wad some panties.

What??? Liking more than one idol group? You have to pick a team man! It's like videogame consoles. You can't like Xbox 360 AND PS3, it's serious biz!  You have to have LOYALTY! :angry:

He seems like a newbie AKB fanboy who just discovered that old footage and tried to stir things up in here, most Idoling fans already know about AKB collab. And he's clearly excited that AKB was in it, not Idoling. You can like any group but this is IDOLING thread, no need to bring up old material just to point out that AKB was in it. I don't go over to AKB thread just to point out that Idoling did a collab with AKB, as if they would give a damn about Idoling then. NOPE. Look at his attitude, he clearly has no respect for this thread participants with smug replies with dumb videos. AKB fanboys are such idiots.

Not quite the same as video games, especially when you see how horrible and nasty the AKB fanboys treated Idoling members at an event of that infamous "collab" single. No person in their right mind would ever want to support AKB after that.

Ok just for future reference, this coming from a moderator btw,

It's not OK to say "FUCK YOU" and mean it to a fellow forum member, especially for something so meager. That is a jerk move and won't make anyone your friend. I'm actually very angry about this because muppet is an active poster who seems to like everything and has never caused trouble with anyone and does NOT deserve that kind of response.

Whatever issues you have at another forum is also not our problem.

There is a wonderful concept called "respect", as in, respecting other people's freedom to like what they like. It's ok NOT to like things, too, but there are classier ways to handle it. I'm not into AKB myself, but many of my good (even best) friends are, and look at that! We're still friends because we respect each other & work things out.

I've also read other comments by you Jenus, and generally you would benefit from not putting down other groups to pimp your own favourite. It doesn't make me find Idoling any more awesome if you diss Momoko, whom I love by the way. Just think sometimes before you type!!

And we don't call women/girls "whores" here simply for belonging to a group we don't personally like. If you said that on our IRC channel you would already be banned, so count yourself lucky or something.


ANYWAY. Point is, EITHER LEARN FROM THIS, OR LEAVE. This is a chillax forum, we don't have room for hateful comments. Have a take, don't suck. And I'm posting this in public because I'm not sure how many of the people who go to subsections of the forum even read the rules of the forum lol.

AND WE CAN NOW RETURN TO DISCUSSING IDOLING!! NO FURTHER COMMENTARY NECESSARY. THAT MEANS, PLEASE STOP DRAGGING THIS FURTHER.

I'm sorry about using profanity, but I thought he was asking for it with that cynical video reply of his. If people want respect, they should give respect first, simple enough concept.

But I don't like that you are taking a shot at me just because you didn't like how I evaluated Momoko's act, and implying as if I bash other groups just to make Idoling look better when I criticize Idoling just as much if not more. If you are trying to accuse me of being biased, it won't stick because my posts themselves will prove you wrong. I may root for Idoling, but I sure am not a fanboy.

Anyway if u have an issue with how I see things, u can PM me, this is the last post on the matter from me. Back to Idoling!!!

Thank you Jenus san for your most recent comments, and they are something I can take on board now. I hope you can understand that JPHIP is unlike any other place on the internet, and really I can say the people who post here are fantastic and help each other with knowledge or humor, or a shoulder to lean on sometimes.
And also thankyou Shirenu san, you always have a good thought and a nice way with words, and I appreciate your kind words very much.
And last shout out to Tenkei and Boykun, who put on a wonderful Televised Web Broadcast every Saturday morning (Friday night in their time zone), which I try not to miss. They cover many topics and artists, but they often feature Idoling, which has made want to know more about Idoling- thus my recent posting here. (I had a 50/50 choice where to post, so I put in Idoling thread) Their show is called basugasubakuhatsu! THE TV   and it is definitely worth a watch. And.....as suggested, back to Idoling!!!

All PV's since Meniwa Aoba are full HD. The ones before that are not, except for Te no Hira no Yuki which is also full HD.

First,I want to say sorry to Ami's fans.

But I really think  this time no Ami is great.

No Ami's 安いネタ,アイドリング!!! is no damage this time. (just my theory)

I think うめこ is more funny to Ami. I know some fans think Ami's talk is very good.

But I don't think so.   In my mind,Ami just wants to be the only one.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: SuzukiRyo on September 27, 2011, 05:13:42 PM
In my opinion, Amimi is always throwing balls to other members but they are still defending their own images and positions. No other members as brave as Amimi, but one. And she is Umeko. It is not Amimi who want to be number one, but members know that there are things only Amimi has the courage to do it.

Idoling's appearance was pretty nice. I was worried since Momoiro looked really energetic and they got the crowd going... but when Idoling came on, they looked so much more mature and classy, making Momoiro look a bit "niche." Which is fine, of course, but I think idoling managed to appeal to a wider audience.

They had nice sports during the final super performance as well  :thumbup

No mention on the official site yet though...

5  野元(weight)

More details about the audition now on the deview website: http://www.deview.co.jp/ds/search.html?cmd=view&id=10509& (http://www.deview.co.jp/ds/search.html?cmd=view&id=10509&)

Main details:
Age: 11-15
20 finalists will be presented on December 4th during 11th live.
Final decision during an event in February and will start participating with the group in March.
No fixed amount of members for 5th generation has been determined yet.



I was hoping for a more wider age range... more like 12-18... and I really hope they pick a 15-year-old singing prodigy... (need to pick 15 since I can't go older...)

Post by: hellguard89 on October 01, 2011, 06:13:44 PM
Yeah I was hoping for a wider age range too. 11-15 is too young. I didn't really remember the details about the 4th gen audition but they only wanted amateur girls right? Girls who have no experience in showbiz. But this time they will also take girls who are already assigned to a talent management company. We might see better talents from this audition compared to the previous one. We might also get girls who can sing this time :lol:

For member who should graduate, I think Maipuru, Yazawa, Fonchi from the 1st gen are candidates and Suu-chan, Sakacchi from 2nd gen too. They are either too old for Idoling!!! staff's desired age(seems like it judging from the 11-15 age range) or get sick easily(Suu-chan, Maipuru). It's highly unlikely someone from 3rd gen will be graduating because I can't see any flaw in them(unless Kaede-chan wants to go with her new group only). 4th gen is a bit of a mystery. I thought Kaorun will surely graduate if she didn't come back but she's here now and it's all good for now. Mana-chan will have to lose weight quickly because I she did said that if she didn't by the next concert, she'll be forced to graduate(again this maybe is just an empty threat from the staff).

They will have less than a month to choose the final 20 candidates(the closing date is on 11th November), I hope the staff and members will make he correct decision. I'll be looking forward to see the final candidates during the live. If there is going to be a graduation, I hope the members who will be graduating will continue working in showbiz because it would be unbearable if graduating means we will not see them again :cry:

I wouldn't say Maipuru is too old but maybe she is too old for the the image of Idoling!!! that the staffs want. Idoling!!! would lose a lot of fan if Maipuru graduates and the younger members would lose a very good role model too. If Maipuru graduates, it would be interesting to see who the next leader is.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: Inferno on October 01, 2011, 07:16:41 PM
Yazawa? Sakacchi? Maipuru? No freaking way! Idoling desperately needs these talkative and energetic members. They should kick out boring fillers like Serina, Ruka and Kaoru instead (MAYBE Fonchi). Kaepyon is very cute and all, but she lacks personality, and as someone said, we really don't need more lolitas. Some associated act/sub group with older members (16-25) might be cool. Maybe someone should contact Kadosawa, Mori-san via Twitter, Imatsubu or whatever other means and tell him their opinion. I would, but my Japanese sucks ass.
Title: Re: The Idoling!!! Discussion Thread
Post by: hellguard89 on October 01, 2011, 07:42:13 PM
Don't get me wrong, I love Maipuru, Yazawa and Sakacchi but I'm just suggesting who might graduate not who I hope will graduate. I prefer if no one graduates and the audition is to expand the group so that the members would not be too busy and can take holidays once in a while. Hearing stories of members collapsing during handshake events and losing their voice after concerts really makes you worry sometimes.

Having separate group for older members is interesting because imagine the thought of having a member who might be half Maipuru's age in the same group. That would be awkward.

No, Amimi is basically saying that people should stop bothering her about graduations since you won't hear anything from her. :lol:

I wouldn't imagine the group losing key members at such an important like this, so if graduations do occur it has to be by the members' own will. Idoling!!! has never been about "kicking" out fodder, with exceptions if you decide to gain a tad too much weight... but even that I think is just an extreme way to push them to their limit.

The staff should pull a Morning-Musume-7th-audition-miracle-member move and just pick one member for the 5th gen. :pimp:

Post by: Jenus on October 03, 2011, 05:38:53 AM
I don't know why people are rushing to push Maipuru out the door just because she's the oldest, that's a lousy reason to oust her if you ask me, especially when she's the current leader and the best vocalist of the group. I think Maipuru should stay at least 2 more years if not until the end. I mean it's one thing if she shows signs that she doesn't want to be a part of Idoling, but she seems to be enjoying being in the group more than before, and if she wants to stay then there's no reason to make her leave.

I might be in the minority, but some change actually might do some good for Idoling, because it's been like 2 years since any member graduated and while new members were kept added after that, seeing the same face all the time and expecting the same thing over and over has become somewhat dull and not as exciting as a fan.

Idoling is one of those very rare groups that I don't really have a member I dislike or anything, but if I ask myself how many of them I could be without and still be a fan, I would name half of the group, so it may be a good indicator that Idoling just has too many that I consider to be extra baggage.

I also don't like the criteria of the 5th gen. audition, they are clearly looking for younger blood and not necessarily the polished talent that is far more needed than anything for Idoling. I would imagine that there are hardly anyone who is 15 years old and a fully matured singing talent. But if the 5th gen. lights a fire under some of the underwhelming members, I'd welcome the new additions.

Having said that let me just state where the current members belong in my mind:

Maipuru - Like I said, she is too vital of a member right now for her to graduate any time soon, age alone is not a good enough reason.

Tonooka - Idoling is practically feeding off of her recent stardom, they'll not let her go just yet, not to mention she's one of the ace singers.

Yazawa - Hmm, well she's an interesting case, I could see her leaver or stay, but I don't think she's ready to leave and make it on her own. Besides, she's one of the very few talkers and a comic relief so I don't mind if she stays.

Fonchi - I don't necessarily think she's not worth anything, but at the same time I don't think I'd miss her if she's gone also, if that makes any sense? I don't think she's really very tight with any of the other members, so maybe it's for the best that she graduates and gets work just for her.

Rurika - She makes me nervous in that she's very emotional and fragile, I don't want to see her become a leader in that respect, but she's very popular and an ace singer so I don't think Idoling can even last that long without her fan base so no way she's leaving.

Morita - She's less of a gray-area than Fonchi, I think she adds a lot to the dynamics of the group with her unique personality and her genius ability of creating hilarious moments spontaneously, but I'm more suspicious of her motivation towards the group than anyone, sometimes I wonder why she hasn't left the group yet, maybe she does like being in the group but doesn't really show it. Who knows, but yeah I'd rather see her stay.

Kawamura - I've tried so hard to take her in, but I just don't find her assets to be of any value to the group, her character is too off-beat, she's not exactly a visual supplement to the group either, and she looks like 35 years old. Sure she can sing, but nothing that someone like Yurippe couldn't replace, but I don't see her leaving either because she herself knows more than anybody else that she's nothing without Idoling.

Serina - I just don't find her very interesting, I don't know what happened to her, she just doesn't seem very engaging, and just keep repeating the same old act of being a superficial idol person. I honestly don't think she has any talent other than looking cute.

Sakai - I don't find her pretty at all, she just look so plain, even less so than Kawamura, and I don't find her character appealing at all, she talks so annoying, and I don't like her personality either, other members say she's nice but I think she's just playing nice, and not very nice inside.

Asahi - No way she's leaving.

Kikuchi - I think she has enough talent to be her own and survive, but I don't think she'll leave yet, not this time.

Miyake - Don't see why she would want to graduate, she's better off being with Idoling for a while.

Yurippe - She's the next ace singer, so NO.

Okawa - NO WAY.

Kaede - She's the youngest! Ridiculous! NOT leaving!

Ruka - Again, youngest so no!

Yuuna - She's the only 4th gen. member that is shaping into a decent character, and has the looks to go with it, she's a future ace.

Nomoto - Weight problem is an issue not in the sense of affecting Idoling's image, but more of she not taking care of her health.

Kaoru - She just came back from the hiatus!! C'mon now!

Ojima - I may be imagining this but she's the only member that I feel like she isn't unsure of her motivations to be in Idoling, I'm not so sure that she's really enjoying being an idol, so if she feels like leaving then she probably will without any hesitation so I don't know if I'm willing to emotionally invest in someone like that and I haven't, I don't feel that her personality is suited for show business to be honest.

Wow, that's a long post, sorry about that, but I just had to get this off my mind.

dilemma because there are members that necessary on the stage but not really good on the show and vice versa.
remember, Idoling!!! tv show is an idol-nurturing project so i think it is obvious for those "boring" and "doesn't have motivation" members to stay in the show.

Good point. Past grads have mainly been the older/early gen members. In a way, it fits with the goal of the group.
But whatever. I never think about this stuff until they're announced anyways.

As for the loli age group, maybe it's a good sign. You can't have a group like idoling with just a bunch of kids. Masuno wouldn't be able to get anything out of 'em. :sweatdrop:

I wonder if we are going to get any good talents from this audition with there being so many idol groups right now. Surely the good talents will try and aim for the 48 groups rather than the lesser known Idoling!!!. Let's face it, there are many more attractive proposition than Idoling!!!.

I bet we are going to get a few rejects from recent auditions(from the top of my head Smileage/HKT48/maybe Fairies as well, not sure if they had an audition). They really need to discover a hidden gem and polish it, going along with Idoling!!! objective as an idol nurture group.

Maybe as well, if someone is going to graduate, she will have fulfilled her potential and should be able to survive on their own as a full-fledged idol.

Well if 4th gen. audition was of any indication in terms of attracting top talent, it doesn't look very promising for sure, that is why I feel that they should go the 3rd gen. audition route and pick from the agency talents instead because at least some of those talents are being scouted by the agency instead of shoving their audition application everywhere just to make it into the industry when they clearly don't have what it takes. I mean it' s no coincidence that 1st gen. turned out to have such a high success rate in terms of talent because Maipuru, Tonooka, and Rurika are scouted talents by their agencies, yeah what a surprise that they turned out to have the most talent.

While I totally understand that Idoling as a show is about grooming ordinary girls into becoming idols, I feel that the current group has outgrown the show's original intent, Idoling has become an established brand now, they are not some bunch of unknown amateurs trying to become top idols, I mean the popular members already rank at the top of sales charts in their individual merchandise already. When 4th gen. joined, the gap between them and the older members were so evident that it made the whole group out of sync for a while, and older members had to pick up a lot of slack, I don't want to see that again because it really lowers the standards that the current group worked so hard to achieve thus far.

What really hurt the most about 4th gen. to me is that not only they lack any sort of talking skill, they are not naturally funny types, when you look at 3rd gen. Okawa and Yurippe are naturally funny people, and that goes a long way in covering up their shortcomings in verbal skill.

It's VERY CRUCIAL that 5th gen. at least is someone who is naturally funny, naturally can talk with some sense, and CAN SING.

I really don't think the staff can make the same mistake they've made in picking 4th gen. and continue Idoling success with such lack of talent and just going for the looks and youth, otherwise Idoling will be reduced to just another idol group without any redeeming qualities. It's also very possible that 5th gen. is also the last gen. for Idoling so I'm hoping that they make a good decision.

Post by: Silverbolt on October 09, 2011, 06:20:04 PM
I've been out of the loop for a long time, but y'all are pulling me back in...

First off, let's make something clear... Idoling!!!'s "graduations" are not like the "graduations" of other idol groups. Ever wonder why graduations/auditions always happen around March or April? It's all about contracts. The members are on yearly contracts that start in April and end in March. The only reason why someone would leave is if the member or staff decided not to renew a contract.

As crazy as the Idoling!!! staff is, they have always seemed to be a very practical group. There aren't many practical reasons for kicking a member out of a group, but one of those would be to cut costs. I highly doubt that the group is hurting financially because, if they were, why would they hold auditions for new members? As useless as some of the current members may seem, they would still sell more merchandise than any new members would at first. New members are a high-cost, high-risk investment that you hope pays off in the long run.

That leaves it up to the members themselves, which is bad because that means anyone could leave. If you look at the list of people who have left Idoling!!!, it's all people who got on a different wavelength from the rest of the group. Kato started feeling too old. Koizumi became a menace backstage. Eto and Takiguchi found different goals. Michelle never really clicked with the others. It's basically like a circle of friends. Sometimes you just don't want to hang out with them anymore. If you keep that in mind, it becomes less like "Who should leave?" and more like "Who wants to leave?"

I'm not a big fan of the whole new member/graduation process that has become so common. I won't go on rambling about how I think 2nd gen broke the group chemistry, as I know many of you have heard it from me before. But, after riding with Idoling!!! during the 1st gen era, I'm a big believer in retaining and developing your members to find their potential. If you want to talk about creating something out of nothing, watch the first episodes of Idoling!!! and then watch episodes from the end of the 1st gen era. The difference is incredible. But, I know that new members and graduations have become inevitable with Idoling!!!, so I don't really have a choice but to roll with it.

Looking at it from the variety angle, you could say that Idoling!!! can't afford to lose people like Yazawa, Asahi, Kikuchi, and Okawa, and that they need to find more people like them. But, in my opinion, it's people like them who are preventing the other members from developing their characters because they take up all of the time. Time is the keyword here. I find it difficult to say that variety is Idoling!!!'s most important aspect when they're doing 5 episodes every 2 weeks, and 2 of those are Shinahachi Live episodes. They're not giving the members nearly enough time to shine, especially when a lot of episodes nowadays have almost all of the members. 1st gen had 326 episodes to find and develop their characters, and only a handful of those were concert episodes. That's why even Tonooka and Yokoyama had many great moments on the variety show. I think if you took the 1st gen members when they started and threw them into the group now, many of them would struggle just like the 4th gen members have. If they bring in new members who are interesting, then that just takes time away from the current variety aces and makes the others just fade further into obscurity. What they really need is to stop showing Shinahachi Live episodes and maybe even change the schedule back to at least 4 episodes per week.

Now, from the musical standpoint... It's pretty straightforward. I hope that none of the key singers leave, and I hope they bring in great singers for 5th gen. That's it. Anyway... Let me go on a little rant about Idoling!!!'s singing... (as if this post isn't long enough)

I'm gonna say a lot of things people don't agree with because I'm really weird when it comes to music. I don't know anything about the technical aspects of music, but different music and singers touch me in different ways, so I "feel" my way through it. But, anyway... In my opinion, Idoling!!! was at its peak vocally during the 2nd gen era. I've thought long and hard about why I feel that way, and I think I've pretty much narrowed it down to 2 things. First, back during the 2nd gen era, Idoling!!! sounded more unified as a group when they sang in harmony. The current group sounds like they're all competing and singing on top of each other. But, they did lack consistency during the 2nd gen era... Sometimes, they'd sound just like the current group. The only real way to fix this is through training, which probably isn't gonna happen.

Now, what's that second thing? I guess the best word to describe it would be soul. It's that singing that really comes from deep inside and makes the listener feel the passion that comes with the words. It's easy to confuse soul and power, but powerful singing doesn't have nearly the same impact that soulful singing does. The only singers who brought a lot of soul into their singing were Rumi Koizumi and Michelle Miki. Ever since those two left, the group has been lacking soul, and it seems like they're trying to compensate for it with power. Rurika Yokoyama and Yui Kawamura can sing with lots of smack-you-in-the-face power, which is good, but it doesn't touch my heart like Rumi Koizumi's soulful voice does. Everyone, especially newer fans, should go back and watch the Roman Hikou performance from episode #412. The vocals in that performance were incredible for a group that, let's face it, has low standards for singing.

I hate to admit it, but I don't like listening to Maipuru when she sings the solo for Konayuki ga Mau Machinami de at concerts. It sounds like she's trying to force something that she can't do. Of course, it sounds good on the track, but everyone sounds good after some tuning. There's a reason why Koizumi got the big climax solo in Omoi no Uta, and it's not because she's a brat who demanded the spotlight. It's because you need soul to really nail those big climaxes.

Honestly, I think they already have a suitable replacement for Koizumi... She came from the same talent agency... No, not Hashimoto... I'm talking about Hitomi Miyake. She does a decent job with Koizumi's lines in Snow celebration. They should send her to vocal training and develop her in that direction. She's like one of those kids who doesn't do anything because nobody tells her to do anything. I think a little direction would pay off big with this one.

Anyway, going back to 5th gen and possible graduations... I've danced around the topic without really going into any specifics on who I think is leaving, and what kind of people I want to see joining. But, whenever I think about it, all I want to say is this: 「この9人」

Basically it comes down to the same thing that everybody keeps saying (I wonder if the Japanese fans think the same thing):

More variety, less Shinahachi on TV !!!

Keep Shinahachi as a concert experience.
Make more variety episodes and use smaller groups of members per episode so each member gets more chances and experience, like they used to do before 4th gen.
I sure wouldn't mind them going to 4 eps a week, but why not start with 3 times EACH week. Now it's always alternating between 2 and 3 episode a week.
I have to agree with SB that 1st gen have had much more experience to grow in a smaller group, also because they had 5 episodes every week, which is also why they were able to wrap up 300+ episodes on their. But then again contracts for only 9 members leaves more budget for the shows...


And indeed: everything in Japan ends in March and starts in April because the Japanese fiscal year is like that, which is also why school starts in April and TV shows get a fresh budget.

Nice to see a familiar face back on here SB, now it'd be an honor to let me tackle some of your interesting points if I could not necessarily as a counter-point, but more of just adding my own take on it.

First off, let's make something clear... Idoling!!!'s "graduations" are not like the "graduations" of other idol groups. Ever wonder why graduations/auditions always happen around March or April? It's all about contracts. The members are on yearly contracts that start in April and end in March. The only reason why someone would leave is if the member or staff decided not to renew a contract.
I tend to believe that it's more than just a business decision for the members' graduation, because I don't see any reason for them to force out half the 1st gen. members merely to cut costs then turn around and add new members, makes no sense. I think it has more to do with how the members are coping as a team-player, and whether they are being a positive influence towards the group. Basically the staff doesn't want rotten apples in the group.

That leaves it up to the members themselves, which is bad because that means anyone could leave. If you look at the list of people who have left Idoling!!!, it's all people who got on a different wavelength from the rest of the group. Kato started feeling too old. Koizumi became a menace backstage. Eto and Takiguchi found different goals. Michelle never really clicked with the others. It's basically like a circle of friends. Sometimes you just don't want to hang out with them anymore. If you keep that in mind, it becomes less like "Who should leave?" and more like "Who wants to leave?"
I don't think it's bad at all that the decision to graduate is up to the members because so far none of them is showing signs that they even want to leave, probably realizing that quitting Idoling!!! is the kiss of death as far as their livelihood in show business is concerned. Out of the members that graduated, I'm only certain that Rumi and Michelle are the only ones who had the luxury to make a decision to quit, I'm rather convinced that the rest were forced out because they didn't fit in with the evolving group. Rumi quit due to health reasons, and while she may have had clashes with other members I don't think it was serious enough that staff would fire her. I think Kato didn't even try to get along with 2nd gen. and it cost her job. Eto was probably becoming a bit too big-headed for her own good if it wasn't any more obvious, and Takiguchi was just heading towards something entirely un-idol-like. The fact that Eto and Takiguchi aren't visually spectacular probably made the decision even easier for the staff. And let's not forget that Kato, Eto, and Takiguchi are all sub-par singers. I think Michelle made the decision to quit because she got along fine with other members, Michelle is a classic popular type who is rich and stylish, so why wouldn't the other members not want to hang around with her? Teenage girls love such types. Michelle probably didn't believe that being an idol is for her, and it makes sense knowing what her personality is like as well as her multi-cultural background.

But if I had to predict one member that the staff is trying to get rid of, it would be Fonchi, because she was dissed hardcore in Gakkyukaing episode. Who would want to stay when you are being singled out by the staff like that? I'd feel so bad for Fonchi if she does leave because of that. Looking back on it, it's by far the most awkward and uncomfortable moment this past year.

I'm not a big fan of the whole new member/graduation process that has become so common. I won't go on rambling about how I think 2nd gen broke the group chemistry, as I know many of you have heard it from me before. But, after riding with Idoling!!! during the 1st gen era, I'm a big believer in retaining and developing your members to find their potential. If you want to talk about creating something out of nothing, watch the first episodes of Idoling!!! and then watch episodes from the end of the 1st gen era. The difference is incredible. But, I know that new members and graduations have become inevitable with Idoling!!!, so I don't really have a choice but to roll with it.
Besides the first wave of lay-offs, I think Idoling for the most part is exercising the retain & develop the members approach, seeing no member has graduated for close to 3 years now. And who knows if anybody would graduate next year even after the 5th gen. is added, because nobody is showing any signs that they want to quit, that is if it is based on the belief that the decision is indeed up to the member. I'm very interested in how this will turn out though because it'll answer a lot of questions regarding who really does make the decision to graduate, although it seems clear based on the past 3 years that the members get to stick around as long as they don't get on the staff's bad side.

Looking at it from the variety angle, you could say that Idoling!!! can't afford to lose people like Yazawa, Asahi, Kikuchi, and Okawa, and that they need to find more people like them. But, in my opinion, it's people like them who are preventing the other members from developing their characters because they take up all of the time. Time is the keyword here. I find it difficult to say that variety is Idoling!!!'s most important aspect when they're doing 5 episodes every 2 weeks, and 2 of those are Shinahachi Live episodes. They're not giving the members nearly enough time to shine, especially when a lot of episodes nowadays have almost all of the members. 1st gen had 326 episodes to find and develop their characters, and only a handful of those were concert episodes. That's why even Tonooka and Yokoyama had many great moments on the variety show. I think if you took the 1st gen members when they started and threw them into the group now, many of them would struggle just like the 4th gen members have. If they bring in new members who are interesting, then that just takes time away from the current variety aces and makes the others just fade further into obscurity. What they really need is to stop showing Shinahachi Live episodes and maybe even change the schedule back to at least 4 episodes per week.
This part is where I completely disagree with you SB with all due respect. Is 4th gen. getting their fair share of time compared to when there was only 1st gen.? Of course not, but at the same time 2nd gen. was faced with the same dilemma as well as the 3rd gen., yet the strong characters found their way to get the spotlight regardless so I just find it a bogus excuse whenever I hear that 4th gen. is not getting enough camera time to shine. And while the CS show may be the main stage, it's not the only one for the members to shine and get noticed by the fans, there's uRa segments, Gekkan Idoling, Shinahachi live, Numbering live, seasonal DVDs, radio shows, various other events etc., and when I take all of that into account in evaluating the 4th gen. there's not much I can say about them, they just don't have as much talent that 3rd gen. and some 2nd gen. members possess. You may say that Yokoyama and Tonooka add nothing to the variety aspect (I'm not so sure about that either, Yokoyama clearly has the ability to capture an audience as she has done at DTDX and Heyx3, and Tonooka simply abandoned variety by choice, so she can be entertaining if she chooses to and have so in the past), but they make up for it ten-fold with their singing prowess, and I just can't say the same for 4th gen. because they don't have a saving grace factor, they just don't stand out at anything. I don't think Nomoto and Ojima being good at dodgeball is going to cut it, they need to show a lot more. I'm not sure what you were trying to say at the end, it sounds like a contradiction. You say that 4th gen. has no screen time to shine, but then state right after that new members with talent will overshadow the current members. Doesn't that admit to the fact that 4th gen. is no good?

I'm gonna say a lot of things people don't agree with because I'm really weird when it comes to music. I don't know anything about the technical aspects of music, but different music and singers touch me in different ways, so I "feel" my way through it. But, anyway...

But, they did lack consistency during the 2nd gen era... Sometimes, they'd sound just like the current group. The only real way to fix this is through training, which probably isn't gonna happen.
It would be more reasonable if you just stated that you like the songs from that period better and I would not argue about such an opinion at all. I simply can't agree that 2nd gen. era was their peak. And it's not just about 3rd gen. either, 1st and 2nd gen. have progressed considerably since the 2nd gen. era as well, and the singles that came after the 2nd gen. era clearly are more polished and sounds better, in fact it's not even a comparison. 2nd gen. era songs for the most part sound amateurish. I would say the peak was prior to 4th gen. joining, because 4th gen. lowered the vocal level of the entire group significantly, not to mention steer the musical direction to the superficial style in catering to the youthful image of 4th gen. OMG what have you done, stupid staff!! No more kiddie-pop songs!!!

Now, what's that second thing? I guess the best word to describe it would be soul. It's that singing that really comes from deep inside and makes the listener feel the passion that comes with the words. It's easy to confuse soul and power, but powerful singing doesn't have nearly the same impact that soulful singing does. The only singers who brought a lot of soul into their singing were Rumi Koizumi and Michelle Miki. Ever since those two left, the group has been lacking soul, and it seems like they're trying to compensate for it with power. Rurika Yokoyama and Yui Kawamura can sing with lots of smack-you-in-the-face power, which is good, but it doesn't touch my heart like Rumi Koizumi's soulful voice does. Everyone, especially newer fans, should go back and watch the Roman Hikou performance from episode #412. The vocals in that performance were incredible for a group that, let's face it, has low standards for singing.
I agree that Yokoyama and Kawamura probably sings without even thinking about the lyrics and its meaning, but I'm not so sure about Rumi and Michelle of all people only having the soul of singing. Rumi does sing with emotion but I don't know if that is enough to qualify her as being a soulful singer, because first of all, she's still a pedestrian singer skill-wise and such skill-level will not capture my heart. I have no opinion on Michelle, haven't seen her sing enough solo to really gauge anything about her singing soul.

I hate to admit it, but I don't like listening to Maipuru when she sings the solo for Konayuki ga Mau Machinami de at concerts. It sounds like she's trying to force something that she can't do. Of course, it sounds good on the track, but everyone sounds good after some tuning. There's a reason why Koizumi got the big climax solo in Omoi no Uta, and it's not because she's a brat who demanded the spotlight. It's because you need soul to really nail those big climaxes.
I stand corrected, I think I disagree with this part the most, I like Rumi's singing voice too, but skill-wise, she's very pedestrian, and not even close to what Maipuru can do with her singing. I think it's too convenient for you to say that Rumi has soul but Maipuru doesn't just because you don't like Maipuru's singing voice. I'm not even sure why you would diss Maipuru for, all you had to say was you like Rumi's singing the most. And judging Maipuru's singing on one line of a song is rather puzzling, wouldn't it be more fair and accurate to judge her singing by her solos like Yuusha No Yuutsu? I wonder if Rumi can sing solo entirely for that song without gasping for oxygen. Omoi no Uta indeed is a great song, but it didn't move me as much as 3dome no Kinenbi did because the difference in the vocals' skill-wise is like night and day.

Honestly, I think they already have a suitable replacement for Koizumi... She came from the same talent agency... No, not Hashimoto... I'm talking about Hitomi Miyake. She does a decent job with Koizumi's lines in Snow celebration. They should send her to vocal training and develop her in that direction. She's like one of those kids who doesn't do anything because nobody tells her to do anything. I think a little direction would pay off big with this one.
Miyake does not have strong enough singing voice, and no training will make her into a singing diva that of Maipuru or even Rumi since it takes more than a strong vocal to be a great singer. Miyake will never catch up to Maipuru's level in her lifetime even if she had the talent. I'm sorry but this is just a silly suggestion that is very unrealistic. Besides, Miyake isn't some uninterested person who does nothing, she's the best pastry baker of the group, and while it's not much, her strengths still lie with the variety aspect more so than the live stage because she just doesn't have the presence of a diva. Miyake seems to want to pursue acting herself, but she has to show some work sample for me to comment on that.

If there's a member you'd want to groom into a diva, no one is better candidate than Yurippe who is already a much better singer than Miyake is, and unlike Miyake, Yurippe has potential for growth. I look for Yurippe to take more part in live stage and eventually become one of the aces.

Post by: Silverbolt on October 10, 2011, 07:37:41 AM
Here we go. This is what I was aiming for. This thread needs some nice discussion to bring it back to life. :)

I tend to believe that it's more than just a business decision for the members' graduation, because I don't see any reason for them to force out half the 1st gen. members merely to cut costs then turn around and add new members, makes no sense. I think it has more to do with how the members are coping as a team-player, and whether they are being a positive influence towards the group. Basically the staff doesn't want rotten apples in the group.
That's actually what I was trying to say. The Idoling!!! staff strikes me as being a very practical group, and thus, they make practical decisions that make sense. Business-wise, it doesn't make sense to push anyone out of the group. But, I don't agree that they would remove a member based on their compatibility and influences on the other members of the group. If they cared about the group's unity and chemistry, the would have never added new members. Even if a rotten apple develops in the group, it's much more economical to take disciplinary action and try to correct the misbehaving member, rather than just get rid of her. Besides, it's not really the Japanese way to just fire somebody and force them to leave. Instead, they make work conditions unfavorable to the employee until they decide to leave on their own. That's why I believe the decision to "graduate" is decided almost entirely by the members themselves.

I don't think it's bad at all that the decision to graduate is up to the members because so far none of them is showing signs that they even want to leave, probably realizing that quitting Idoling!!! is the kiss of death as far as their livelihood in show business is concerned. Out of the members that graduated, I'm only certain that Rumi and Michelle are the only ones who had the luxury to make a decision to quit, I'm rather convinced that the rest were forced out because they didn't fit in with the evolving group. Rumi quit due to health reasons, and while she may have had clashes with other members I don't think it was serious enough that staff would fire her. I think Kato didn't even try to get along with 2nd gen. and it cost her job. Eto was probably becoming a bit too big-headed for her own good if it wasn't any more obvious, and Takiguchi was just heading towards something entirely un-idol-like. The fact that Eto and Takiguchi aren't visually spectacular probably made the decision even easier for the staff. And let's not forget that Kato, Eto, and Takiguchi are all sub-par singers. I think Michelle made the decision to quit because she got along fine with other members, Michelle is a classic popular type who is rich and stylish, so why wouldn't the other members not want to hang around with her? Teenage girls love such types. Michelle probably didn't believe that being an idol is for her, and it makes sense knowing what her personality is like as well as her multi-cultural background.
The only reason why I said I think it's bad is because any member could leave at any given time. We really don't have any idea what goes on inside each members' head. But, like I said above, I don't believe that the staff would force anyone out of the group. A lot of the other things you said in this paragraph make it seem like you aren't familiar with the 2nd gen era.

They stated that Rumi left for "health reasons," but anyone who was a fan at the time knows that was complete BS. Rumi had a huge ego and an extremely volatile personality that could turn sour at any moment. Being the honest group that Idoling!!! is, many of the conflicts between Rumi and the other members frequently came to light on the TV show. Even at the 10th Live, Rurika mentioned something about getting into an argument with Rumi right before the 1st live. But, the bond that the 1st gen members built was so strong that even Rumi's bratty personality wasn't enough to break it. Even now, she still hangs out with the other 1st gen members outside of work. But, if you think about her personality, she's exactly the type who would get angry about a bunch of new kids coming in and riding on her coattail. By bringing in the 2nd gen members, the staff basically said, we can't be successful with just the 9 of you. Her pride was hurt. The timing of her graduation makes me believe that the staff started looking for the 3rd gen members, and that's what caused her to say enough is enough and decide to leave even before reaching the end of the contract.

Your statement about Kato couldn't be more wrong. Saya-nee was one of the most accepting of the 2nd gen. She got along well with them, and they all looked up to her like a big sister, hence the nickname "Saya-nee". But, there was always a generational gap between her and the younger members, and it probably became too big of an issue in her mind. It also didn't help that it was constantly brought up on the TV show. With her close friend Rumi gone, and even younger members coming in with the 3rd gen, she probably felt that it was time to move on.

Eto was a little brat, and Takiguchi was the exact opposite of an idol, but those are the characters that made them successful within Idoling!!! It wouldn't make sense for them to leave for those reasons. They most likely left Idoling!!! just because they had other plans. Eto wanted to become an actress, and Takiguchi was focusing more and more on comedy. The two of them even became a comedy duo shortly after leaving Idoling!!!

Michelle was the type who would be popular... among Western people. She was rich and stylish, but that also made her seem somewhat unapproachable. There was too much of a cultural gap between her and the other members, and it always made her seem separate from the rest of the group. There were so many times when her lack of knowledge of the Japanese language interfered with her ability to participate on the show. Adding her to the group was a gimmick, and it wasn't succeeding, so she left.

But if I had to predict one member that the staff is trying to get rid of, it would be Fonchi, because she was dissed hardcore in Gakkyukaing episode. Who would want to stay when you are being singled out by the staff like that? I'd feel so bad for Fonchi if she does leave because of that. Looking back on it, it's by far the most awkward and uncomfortable moment this past year.
The staff's not trying to get rid of her. They're looking for ways to motivate her because it's clear that she has lost her passion for Idoling!!! Sometimes, when your employees are underperforming, you have to call them out on it to light a fire under them. She keeps dropping hints that she wants to leave, and in my opinion, she's the most likely to leave when March comes.

Besides the first wave of lay-offs, I think Idoling for the most part is exercising the retain & develop the members approach, seeing no member has graduated for close to 3 years now. And who knows if anybody would graduate next year even after the 5th gen. is added, because nobody is showing any signs that they want to quit, that is if it is based on the belief that the decision is indeed up to the member. I'm very interested in how this will turn out though because it'll answer a lot of questions regarding who really does make the decision to graduate, although it seems clear based on the past 3 years that the members get to stick around as long as they don't get on the staff's bad side.
I agree for the most part. Idoling!!! has been doing a much better job of retaining their existing members than most other idol groups do. But, I still believe that, if they never added the 2nd gen members, all 9 of the 1st gen members would have stayed until the very end, which I will admit, might have been a few years ago if they stayed that way. Idoling!!! 2013 will be the ultimate proof for that belief.

This part is where I completely disagree with you SB with all due respect. Is 4th gen. getting their fair share of time compared to when there was only 1st gen.? Of course not, but at the same time 2nd gen. was faced with the same dilemma as well as the 3rd gen., yet the strong characters found their way to get the spotlight regardless so I just find it a bogus excuse whenever I hear that 4th gen. is not getting enough camera time to shine. And while the CS show may be the main stage, it's not the only one for the members to shine and get noticed by the fans, there's uRa segments, Gekkan Idoling, Shinahachi live, Numbering live, seasonal DVDs, radio shows, various other events etc., and when I take all of that into account in evaluating the 4th gen. there's not much I can say about them, they just don't have as much talent that 3rd gen. and some 2nd gen. members possess. You may say that Yokoyama and Tonooka add nothing to the variety aspect (I'm not so sure about that either, Yokoyama clearly has the ability to capture an audience as she has done at DTDX and Heyx3, and Tonooka simply abandoned variety by choice, so she can be entertaining if she chooses to and have so in the past), but they make up for it ten-fold with their singing prowess, and I just can't say the same for 4th gen. because they don't have a saving grace factor, they just don't stand out at anything. I don't think Nomoto and Ojima being good at dodgeball is going to cut it, they need to show a lot more. I'm not sure what you were trying to say at the end, it sounds like a contradiction. You say that 4th gen. has no screen time to shine, but then state right after that new members with talent will overshadow the current members. Doesn't that admit to the fact that 4th gen. is no good?
I'm not saying that 4th gen is good. I will wholeheartedly agree with you when you say that 3rd gen is better than 4th gen. What I'm saying is, there's no reason why 4th gen can't be good. Developing characters takes time and attention. Some people are naturally better and quicker at finding their spots than others. I never said that Tonooka and Yokoyama bring nothing to the variety show. I said they were able to have great moments because they were given the proper time and attention needed to find their niches on the variety show. The point I was trying to make was, even though many of the 1st gen members seemed just as dull and boring as the 4th gen members do, every 1st gen member, 1 through 9, found their own little character on the TV show, and it's because each was given enough time and attention to find it. There was no "extra baggage" that so many people seem to complain about with the current roster. Not being able to stand out from a large group is different from not being an interesting person. Almost everybody has something interesting to bring to the table. Sometimes, you just have to dig deeper to find it.

Let's do some quick math... 2nd gen had roughly 160 episodes (many of which featured just the 2nd gen), 14 Boukenoung episodes, Idoling!!! Nikki, uRa Idoling!!!, radio shows, etc. Yet, none of them really settled into their characters until the 1st gen members graduated. Even the incredible Amimi really didn't become the monster that she is until the 3rd gen era.

And, in case anyone's wondering, 3rd gen had roughly 120 episodes, and 4th gen has had 185 episodes so far. But, if you take away the 40 percent of episodes that are Shinahachi lives, that makes roughly 111 episodes.

Idoling!!! has always been an "idol-nurturing" project. Well, to properly nurture anything, it requires a lot of time and attention... Something they haven't been giving the members enough of lately. Yes, they got lucky with 3rd gen, but they're not always going to be that lucky.

It would be more reasonable if you just stated that you like the songs from that period better and I would not argue about such an opinion at all. I simply can't agree that 2nd gen. era was their peak. And it's not just about 3rd gen. either, 1st and 2nd gen. have progressed considerably since the 2nd gen. era as well, and the singles that came after the 2nd gen. era clearly are more polished and sounds better, in fact it's not even a comparison. 2nd gen. era songs for the most part sound amateurish. I would say the peak was prior to 4th gen. joining, because 4th gen. lowered the vocal level of the entire group significantly, not to mention steer the musical direction to the superficial style in catering to the youthful image of 4th gen. OMG what have you done, stupid staff!! No more kiddie-pop songs!!!
That would be reasonable. But, it's not true. In fact, I very much prefer Idoling!!!'s current songs over their older songs. But, not once did I say anything about any of Idoling!!!'s songs in this paragraph. Everybody sounds good on the track. I'm talking about live performances. Back then, they sang many songs from other artists, which means they had to adapt to many different singing styles. If you go back and watch the many different opening performances from the 2nd gen era, you'll see that they actually did a pretty good job with all of the cover songs.

I don't understand why you say that the addition of 4th gen directed Idoling!!!'s music to a more youthful image, especially when songs like Soushoku-kei Carnival, Houkago Telepathy, and Love Magic Fever are all from the 3rd gen era. If anything, they've been singing kiddie-pop songs from the beginning. Have you ever heard Ponkikki Medley?

I agree that Yokoyama and Kawamura probably sings without even thinking about the lyrics and its meaning, but I'm not so sure about Rumi and Michelle of all people only having the soul of singing. Rumi does sing with emotion but I don't know if that is enough to qualify her as being a soulful singer, because first of all, she's still a pedestrian singer skill-wise and such skill-level will not capture my heart. I have no opinion on Michelle, haven't seen her sing enough solo to really gauge anything about her singing soul.
See, this is where things get blurry. Like I said, I really have no idea about technical singing "talent". I only know the way I feel when I hear someone singing. To me, soulful singing has nothing to do with "skill" or "talent". It's all about feeling and the way a singer's voice touches me. To understand what I mean, you have to look past technicalities and just feel the sounds entering your head. This is where I always clash with people, because nobody really understands what I mean, and I don't really know how to describe it. All I can really say is, Rumi and Michelle's singing voices touched me in ways that no other members have since the two left.

I stand corrected, I think I disagree with this part the most, I like Rumi's singing voice too, but skill-wise, she's very pedestrian, and not even close to what Maipuru can do with her singing. I think it's too convenient for you to say that Rumi has soul but Maipuru doesn't just because you don't like Maipuru's singing voice. I'm not even sure why you would diss Maipuru for, all you had to say was you like Rumi's singing the most. And judging Maipuru's singing on one line of a song is rather puzzling, wouldn't it be more fair and accurate to judge her singing by her solos like Yuusha No Yuutsu? I wonder if Rumi can sing solo entirely for that song without gasping for oxygen. Omoi no Uta indeed is a great song, but it didn't move me as much as 3dome no Kinenbi did because the difference in the vocals' skill-wise is like night and day.
When did I say I didn't like Maipuru's singing voice? I love Maipuru's elegant singing voice, but it's best used in a controlled manner. Yuusha no Yuuutsu didn't have a really big climax. It stayed right around a level that's perfect for Endo. 3dome no Kinenbi was an incredible song, but who got the big climax solo? Rurika. I may have been a little to harsh on Maipuru, but I was really disappointed when I heard the live version of Konayuki ga Mau Machinami de. She sounded completely out of her element. I never said Koizumi was a better singer than Endo. I said Koizumi was a more soulful singer than Endo. Endo's singing is one where you listen in awe as she elegantly sings the words, whereas Koizumi's singing is the kind that hits you in the chest, making it preferrable for a solo that hits the powerful climax of a song.

Miyake does not have strong enough singing voice, and no training will make her into a singing diva that of Maipuru or even Rumi since it takes more than a strong vocal to be a great singer. Miyake will never catch up to Maipuru's level in her lifetime even if she had the talent. I'm sorry but this is just a silly suggestion that is very unrealistic. Besides, Miyake isn't some uninterested person who does nothing, she's the best pastry baker of the group, and while it's not much, her strengths still lie with the variety aspect more so than the live stage because she just doesn't have the presence of a diva. Miyake seems to want to pursue acting herself, but she has to show some work sample for me to comment on that.
Nobody in Idoling!!! will ever reach the level of skill that Maipuru has, but they can be trained to be at a level that's good enough to create a quality product. Music is an art, and as with any art, skill and talent aren't everything. There are so many other factors that come into play, and so many of them are subjective. My point was, Idoling!!! has lost its soul when it comes to singing, and the only member who seems like she has the potential to bring it back is Miyake. I'm not saying she will be nearly as good as Koizumi, but she has the potential to fill the gap that Koizumi left.

When has baking pastries become a part of Idoling!!!'s job? Even after all this time, Miyake is a big question mark on the variety show. She really doesn't do anything unless she's pushed into an opportunity to do something.

If there's a member you'd want to groom into a diva, no one is better candidate than Yurippe who is already a much better singer than Miyake is, and unlike Miyake, Yurippe has potential for growth. I look for Yurippe to take more part in live stage and eventually become one of the aces.
I really don't understand where you're coming from with this... I have never heard anything from Tachibana that sounded particularly special. She tends to do weird things with her voice. To me, she has always seemed average, at best.

But, I don't agree that they would remove a member based on their compatibility and influences on the other members of the group. If they cared about the group's unity and chemistry, the would have never added new members. Even if a rotten apple develops in the group, it's much more economical to take disciplinary action and try to correct the misbehaving member, rather than just get rid of her. Besides, it's not really the Japanese way to just fire somebody and force them to leave. Instead, they make work conditions unfavorable to the employee until they decide to leave on their own. That's why I believe the decision to "graduate" is decided almost entirely by the members themselves.
I tend to think that if I was in staff's shoes, I would expect the 1st and 2nd gen. to get along without an issue because they are working as a group as professionals, and if any member shows any sign that they are not being a team-player, that would pose a big problem down the road so it may be more efficient to force them out instead of working things out, which they may have as well anyway before cutting them loose. I really don't feel that it's that easy to make people change let alone a bunch of teenage female idols you know. When relationships turn sour it rarely recovers. I don't think the staff is willing to take such a risk on a member they don't fully trust. And of course the staff can fire any member at any time, they are the adults and employers for crying out loud, members have no power in reality. But the staff wants to make you believe that they don't force any member out because they end up getting the heat from the fans, which probably was the case for Kato, Eto, and Takiguchi, so the staff has become rather gun-shy in terms of forcing a member out even if they are useless and have no talent whatsoever.

I'm not so sure if that whole Japanese work culture thing applies to Idoling, it's not exactly a typical work arrangement, and the reason why employers wait for the employee to quit has to do with compensation more than the culture, where the employer doesn't have to pay compensation if the employee quits on their own will. Companies in America do the same thing. I'm pretty sure that plenty people also get fired in Japan if they really suck at it. Idoling members don't exactly work in an office so what could they possibly do to make things difficult enough that they would quit? Not much, the best they can do is not have them on the show episodes so they don't have to pay them anything until the contract expires. Could they have done that to Rumi which would explain her non-showing streak down the stretch? Maybe, but I believe Rumi quit by her choice so who knows.

The only reason why I said I think it's bad is because any member could leave at any given time. We really don't have any idea what goes on inside each members' head. But, like I said above, I don't believe that the staff would force anyone out of the group. A lot of the other things you said in this paragraph make it seem like you aren't familiar with the 2nd gen era.
It's just a matter of perspective, I'd rather have the members have free will instead of being stuck in a group they don't want to be a part of due to contractual obligation. Sure it would be sad to see the members leave by choice, but would you be happy if they were forced to stay and be miserable? In that sense, I am pleased to see that the current members get along so well and wanting to be a part of the group.

They stated that Rumi left for "health reasons," but anyone who was a fan at the time knows that was complete BS. Rumi had a huge ego and an extremely volatile personality that could turn sour at any moment. Being the honest group that Idoling!!! is, many of the conflicts between Rumi and the other members frequently came to light on the TV show. Even at the 10th Live, Rurika mentioned something about getting into an argument with Rumi right before the 1st live. But, the bond that the 1st gen members built was so strong that even Rumi's bratty personality wasn't enough to break it. Even now, she still hangs out with the other 1st gen members outside of work. But, if you think about her personality, she's exactly the type who would get angry about a bunch of new kids coming in and riding on her coattail. By bringing in the 2nd gen members, the staff basically said, we can't be successful with just the 9 of you. Her pride was hurt. The timing of her graduation makes me believe that the staff started looking for the 3rd gen members, and that's what caused her to say enough is enough and decide to leave even before reaching the end of the contract.
Honestly, I don't know what to believe, I think most of the rumors are bogus, yeah Rumi is a very colorful character, but I don't believe she's just like that in real life either. I think what most fans think of Rumi as not the real life one but her character from the show. And if Rumi wasn't happy about the new members keep joining wouldn't she be directing her anger at them instead of arguing with Rurika of all people? And even that episode is not what I would call a proof of Rumi being difficult, because Rurika also mentioned that it was about nothing, and other 1st gen. members were giggling at them, doesn't sound like a serious problem to me. I believe the 1st gen. as a collective whole wasn't happy about 2nd gen. joining them and they have said so, it's clearly not just about Rumi's pride, if it was she would quit right when 2nd gen. joined, and not wait around until the news on 3rd gen. got out either. You say that Rumi is exactly such a type, but you don't know her personally do you? You can believe what you want of course, but I think a lot of your story is fictional with little truth. Because my impression on Rumi is totally different, I never saw her as a big-ego type, otherwise she wouldn't take on being such an antagonistic character in the first place.

Your statement about Kato couldn't be more wrong. Saya-nee was one of the most accepting of the 2nd gen. She got along well with them, and they all looked up to her like a big sister, hence the nickname "Saya-nee". But, there was always a generational gap between her and the younger members, and it probably became too big of an issue in her mind. It also didn't help that it was constantly brought up on the TV show. With her close friend Rumi gone, and even younger members coming in with the 3rd gen, she probably felt that it was time to move on.
I chose to go with Kato being forced out because it made more sense to me seeing what she's like. You see, I think Kato is the one with the most pride and ego, not Rumi. And Kato may be oldest, but she's far from being the big sister-type who would look after the younger members at all because she's the youngest sibling in her own family so she's not used to looking after anyone, and her personality as she has said publicly is more of being the one being spoiled rather than the other way around. Yes, it doesn't mean that she is not capable of leading and be a big sister, but I don't think she cares about 2nd gen. enough to develop those qualities overnight, and again, I can only go by my own impression, but Kato and 2nd gen. didn't exactly seem like the best of pals. I do know that Kato keeps in touch with 1st gen. members still, but 2nd gen.? That would be a big fat NO. The age gag is part of Kato's ammo from the very beginning, and she revelled in it, if Kato really hated it I don't think the other members would dare bring it up every chance they could get. But it was the staff who found her age to be an issue and made her realize nicely so that she would quit, because their message made her ego hurt. I don't think age had to be even brought up, making her realize that she's not wanted probably was enough.

Eto was a little brat, and Takiguchi was the exact opposite of an idol, but those are the characters that made them successful within Idoling!!! It wouldn't make sense for them to leave for those reasons. They most likely left Idoling!!! just because they had other plans. Eto wanted to become an actress, and Takiguchi was focusing more and more on comedy. The two of them even became a comedy duo shortly after leaving Idoling!!!
It's ironic that you view them as successful, is Idoling successful then? Hmmm...anyway I totally agree that Eto is a brat on and off stage, I mean anybody could sense it right away, the staff probably got tired of her attitude. I think they didn't know what to do with Takiguchi, but she making a fool of herself in front of the new producer probably cost her the job, and I don't blame them because Takiguchi is not exactly a charming gal who leaves the greatest of first impression. Oh c'mon, what plans, they had nothing to go on, they so got fired!

Michelle was the type who would be popular... among Western people. She was rich and stylish, but that also made her seem somewhat unapproachable. There was too much of a cultural gap between her and the other members, and it always made her seem separate from the rest of the group. There were so many times when her lack of knowledge of the Japanese language interfered with her ability to participate on the show. Adding her to the group was a gimmick, and it wasn't succeeding, so she left.
She seemed plenty approachable to me, well at least far more so than Kawamura. I really don't care enough about Michelle to say anything on your claims, but I think you are making a little too much out of her cultural background, those teenage Japanese girls love hip foreigners! I think her lack of Japanese knowledge provided quite a few moments of laughter among the members. At the end though, Michelle was too cool for Idoling and so she quit.

The staff's not trying to get rid of her. They're looking for ways to motivate her because it's clear that she has lost her passion for Idoling!!! Sometimes, when your employees are underperforming, you have to call them out on it to light a fire under them. She keeps dropping hints that she wants to leave, and in my opinion, she's the most likely to leave when March comes.
Publicly humiliating her is the staff's way of motivating her? Wow, I really hope you are wrong because that's just cruel and mean. Why can't they just call her into a meeting room and give her an ultimatum instead? Wouldn't she get the message more clearly that way instead of making it a part of a show segment and half-jokingly making her to realize it? I'm sorry but I call total bogus on your story. And what ever gave you an idea that Fonchi has lost the passion? Yeah she put on some weight last year, but she has trimmed down this year, I don't see the warning signs.

I'm not saying that 4th gen is good. I will wholeheartedly agree with you when you say that 3rd gen is better than 4th gen. What I'm saying is, there's no reason why 4th gen can't be good. Developing characters takes time and attention. Some people are naturally better and quicker at finding their spots than others. I never said that Tonooka and Yokoyama bring nothing to the variety show. I said they were able to have great moments because they were given the proper time and attention needed to find their niches on the variety show. The point I was trying to make was, even though many of the 1st gen members seemed just as dull and boring as the 4th gen members do, every 1st gen member, 1 through 9, found their own little character on the TV show, and it's because each was given enough time and attention to find it. There was no "extra baggage" that so many people seem to complain about with the current roster. Not being able to stand out from a large group is different from not being an interesting person. Almost everybody has something interesting to bring to the table. Sometimes, you just have to dig deeper to find it.
Since you agree that 3rd gen. is superior than 4th gen. I have nothing much to add, but I just feel that 4th gen. has no talent whatsoever, and no time and nurture and developing will help them. Even with 1st gen. they were given plenty of time to develop but ultimately Kato, Eto, and Takiguchi got fired because they didn't have good enough talent and potential for growth. 4th gen. in that respect has no business being a part of this group, if those 1st gen. members weren't good enough to stick around, 4th gen. surely aren't. Holy god, you should watch this uRa episode where Ito Yuna keeps talking to herself about takoyaki and UFO, the most boring thing ever.

That would be reasonable. But, it's not true. In fact, I very much prefer Idoling!!!'s current songs over their older songs. But, not once did I say anything about any of Idoling!!!'s songs in this paragraph. Everybody sounds good on the track. I'm talking about live performances. Back then, they sang many songs from other artists, which means they had to adapt to many different singing styles. If you go back and watch the many different opening performances from the 2nd gen era, you'll see that they actually did a pretty good job with all of the cover songs.

I don't understand why you say that the addition of 4th gen directed Idoling!!!'s music to a more youthful image, especially when songs like Soushoku-kei Carnival, Houkago Telepathy, and Love Magic Fever are all from the 3rd gen era. If anything, they've been singing kiddie-pop songs from the beginning. Have you ever heard Ponkikki Medley?
They may pick the best sounding sampling for the tracks but I still can tell that vocals from 2nd gen. era are amateurish in execution, no machinery can hide it, that's why I don't listen to tracks from that era much because I feel like I'm lowering my standards in music. Cover songs are a completely different thing altogether, so I can't say anything on that, but I surely didn't feel that they sang the cover songs any better, the singing level was pretty much the same.

I'm going by single songs so keeping that in mind, the 1st single for 3rd gen. is "baby blue", not a kiddie pop song, the 2nd single song is "Mujouken Kouhuku", not a kiddie-pop song either, next "Tenohirano Yuuki", nope, not a kiddie-pop song, "Love Magic Fever" I guess, but it's a game-tie-in song, so it's more playful than anything else, next "S.O.W.", not a kiddie-pop song even though it's an anime theme song. Compare that to 4th gen's 1st single "MeniwaAoba..." ding ding ding, kiddie song. Next one is "Poolside Daisakusen", borderline kiddie-pop song. "Eve" is not kiddie song, but then "Yarakai Heart" is total kiddie candy xxx48 wannabe track. You see my point?

See, this is where things get blurry. Like I said, I really have no idea about technical singing "talent". I only know the way I feel when I hear someone singing. To me, soulful singing has nothing to do with "skill" or "talent". It's all about feeling and the way a singer's voice touches me. To understand what I mean, you have to look past technicalities and just feel the sounds entering your head. This is where I always clash with people, because nobody really understands what I mean, and I don't really know how to describe it. All I can really say is, Rumi and Michelle's singing voices touched me in ways that no other members have since the two left.
Yeah I'm totally lost on what you mean by "soul" here, must be something close to that of personal preference. I just find it hard to believe that you think Maipuru doesn't have soul in her singing, it's a required element in singing Yuusha no Yuutsu successfully.

When did I say I didn't like Maipuru's singing voice? I love Maipuru's elegant singing voice, but it's best used in a controlled manner. Yuusha no Yuuutsu didn't have a really big climax. It stayed right around a level that's perfect for Endo. 3dome no Kinenbi was an incredible song, but who got the big climax solo? Rurika. I may have been a little to harsh on Maipuru, but I was really disappointed when I heard the live version of Konayuki ga Mau Machinami de. She sounded completely out of her element. I never said Koizumi was a better singer than Endo. I said Koizumi was a more soulful singer than Endo. Endo's singing is one where you listen in awe as she elegantly sings the words, whereas Koizumi's singing is the kind that hits you in the chest, making it preferrable for a solo that hits the powerful climax of a song.
I guess you are saying that while Maipuru is better overall singer,
