Mayuyu Rap

akb48 - Baby! Baby! Baby! (渡辺麻友 Ver.)


I have no idea why I created this topic. I'm not a Mayu fan, but there are some things about her which are interesting.

1. Her innocent aura and good girl vibe. She gets to you somehow.. like a virus  :lol:
2. She NEVER articulates.. I've never seen her open her mouth during a performance. It makes it seems like she's lip syncing all the time. Some say she's like a robot (who plots world domination).
3. Wotas pay INSANE amounts for her pictures on auctions. Seriously INSANE amounts. I'll try to find some examples later.

Based on the 13th single results, she's 4th popular!!! Leaving Takamina and Haruna behind her! That's quite amazing imo.

So, how do you feel about Mayuyu? Cute, worthy of our support or damn right annoying? In the beginning I couldn't stand her, but I'm really opening up to her these past couple of months.

AKB48 Asu made Mou Iccho #44 - Mayu Watanabe(渡辺麻友)

I watched a bunch of AKB videos the other day but I don't even remember Mayuyu. I guess she didn't really stand out in those videos.

"Out!"


Well, Mayu isn't that big of a cam whore. Usually she just sits there being a good girl.

Here's a live example: http://page21.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j47639545

ONE signed photocard, two days to go and it's already up to 17500y / 185 USD / 130 Euro. And I've seen them go for MUCH more  :lol: Crazy wota or true fan?  :shocked:

So what's the deal with those photo cards? Why are they so expensive?

Taken from S48:

"B.L.T. stands for Beautiful Lady & Television. They collaborate with AKB48 in magazines such as the original B.L.T., B.L.T. U-17, and the special AKBxB.L.T. issues. From the AKBxB.L.T. issues which can only be purchased at the theatre or bought online, are collectible photos. It usually comes in four versions, and are sold at different times. One issue at the beginning of the week, second issue during second week, and the rest on the web. The B.L.T. photos that come with it follow the weeks respectively, 1st week - A, 2nd week - B and also C (which can only be ordered through the web)"

So, basically:
1. It's kinda rare / difficult to get
2. It's signed!
3. The value (of any collector item basically) is completely irrational  :lol: I wouldn't pay more than 3 euro or something for this, while it could mean the world to some fan.

There also other pictures called "gachas"

"Gacha are balls that are sold at the theatre towards the end of the month. They are sold for 300 yen each and contain random prizes and points. Random prizes can include member events, vacation trips, gaming consoles, and more. The points can be used at the theatre in exchange for items such as 2-shots and member photos. There is no limit to how many you can buy so you could buy two bags full of gachas if you wanted to."

But they abandoned this system in July (?) this year and replaced it with a totally new system. In the new system you buy a card pack (from your preferred team) for 1000y, which contains 5 pictures at random. Someone correct me of I'm wrong here..

Maybe we could use a collectors / stuff you want thread?

Quote from the ranking thread:

7.Watanabe Mayu - mayuyu is her old nickname...now everybody calls her CG or cyborg girl XD
The truth is she really IS a cyborg. her movements are completely automatic...she speaks like a cyborg..she smiles like one..she dances like one. she doesn't sing like one though :grin: WARNING: don't look at her eyes...she'll suck your soul with those cyborg eyes and will make you her follower FOREVER XD :inlove:

I've said that as well  :lol:

She does have some human emotion though.. or is she leaking fluid?  :P

I never properly watched B4 before (no pun intended  :lol:). So when the studio albums came out, I decided to put the songs on my iPod and get to know them before watching the B4 LoD. 'Zannen Shoujo' turned out to be one of my favs and I was quite shocked when I saw the LoD  :lol: It's Mayuyu's unit! In goth-loli outfits no less  XD I would've never guessed. I guess Mayu's vocals improved.

Not goth-loli, more like pvc sexy goth stuff done up sweet.
(but very cute none-the-less)

Mayuyu also surprised me in this song after not being so keen on her in pajama drive :D

Here's me singing and dancing!

^True, but we can't be sure. It's what they want us to think. Better play it safe.  XD

^ That photo must have been taken before they turned her into a cyborg :P

That video pretty much proves that Mayuyu really is a cyborg XD
