GJ, mini!

Who would've thought this dark thingy would turn into that. :lol:

And top it off, she's a natural airhead. It's almost worrisome.

Dawa is going to be such a beauty, it's gonna be ridiculous (well, not that I've been good at making predictions like this, but whatever :lol: )

I mean look at this face:

(http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/4696/wadabeautysi3.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)
She's so gonna be breakin' some hearts big time.


But anyway, the reason why I love Dawa is because she seems so funny and awkward. Her body language is amazing. Just watch the way she waves :lol: Instead of just doing a wrist-movement, she waves with her whole fricking arm. It's hilarious!!! (And cute) And ah I dunno. I just really like her :D

@ Shiba concert: Man, Dawa is so awkward :lol:  :heart:

And this was funny:

(http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/2301/dawaangrymodhh6.gif) (http://imageshack.us)

I didn't include it in the gif, but her reaction was also really slow. What happened was that little Manami Arai got in front of the camera when Dawa and Asuna were doing fun stuff. So then when Arai's gone, Ayaka stares... and stares... and THEN finally does the angry face above :lol: Ditz :heart:

This girl seems like one more proof of the mad prediction skills that those people who choose girls to H!P have. I haven't paid much attention to her, but going by the pictures the change in her looks is pretty amazing (not that she was ugly or anything). I shall definately keep my eye on her when I get to watching the Shiba Kouen.

"Yanyan" vol.4 2008 Dec. Shugo Chara Egg! Interview.

-- "Now, all of you have a deep relation to "eggs", but are there any particular stories concerning eggs?" --
Ayaka: When I was little, I always thought that if you exposed an egg to heat it would hatch. (lol) So, I wrapped one in a bunch of towels, but I messed up and stepped on it. (lol) I then cleaned up the mess by myself.

Quote from: Wada Ayaka
The rainy season
2009.06.16

Are we in the rainy season already??
Since it's raining and all today (>_<)

When the rainy season begins, that means the frogs come out as well (~_~;)
I remember there was a time in middle school where I was counting the amount of frogs I'd encounter on the way to school
I met about 10 of them ヾ(^▽^)ノ

Oh!!
I just remembered something when thinking about the frogs: I met a snake yesterday (^^;)
But it had already gone away to the next world so I didn't get bitten ( ̄。 ̄)
I really wanted the snake shed (`・ω・´)

Excuse the weird contents on today's blog (T^T)

Bye-bye (*^_^*)

Punished
2009.06.21

So, at yesterday's lesson I completely tripped and fell (^^;)
I was punished because I was counting dead frogs (-_-;)

It really hurt (>_<)
Though it's all just a funny story by now (^o^)

bye-bye〜♪

Edit: Ah, nevermind, the blog gets updated at such a weird pace I either missed this entry somehow or they updated it afterwards.

Quote from: Wada Ayaka
Frogs
2009.06.18

Today was another rainy day (x_x;)
But, on the way to school my friend and I were counting dead frogs...
And we found 66 of them Σ( ̄□ ̄)!
That was really surprising. (゜o゜)
Since we were so into the frog searching, they were already taking attendance by the time we were at the school gate (・・;
Our classroom is on the second floor so my friend and I made a dash for it ~~(m´Д`)m

We barely made it in time
A classmate thought I wasn't coming today, but when I told her that I almost ran late because we were so into our frog search everyone laughed (゜-゜) It's not really a laughing matter ~~~(・_・)

Although, apparently the girl in front of me was counting as well
She said she found 88 of them ( ̄□ ̄;!!

Bye-bye (^^)

My Dawa story: Got curious why shirenu and Ayabie kept pimping her in Egg threads before. Got to watch some vids of Egg concerts and found out how awesome she is  :lol: Also it's pretty neat that she's the leader of S/mileage.

My favourite thing about Dawa: she may not be the best singer but she's got some other traits that make her her likable.

A memorable performance:

DAWAWAWAWAWAWA

My Dawa story: I started noticing her in the H!P Egg DVD pamphlet. There's a segment where a bunch of them are fooling around, and in the midst of everything a sunburned hyper kid enters and everyone goes mental. :lol:
My favourite thing about Dawa: She's the owner of an idol's most lethal weapon: tennen boke, aka she's a natural airhead.
A memorable performance: ^Same as wordy.
A moment that made me laugh: The "DAWA wa seikai" corner from the two latest Shinjin Kouen. There doesn't seem to be any footage of it yet, though.
A moment that surprised me: When she went from the sunburned hyper kid to the current DAWA.

If this was released as a proper book I'd buy several copies of it. :lol:

"DAWA's sayings!"
(http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/6739/ayacho0787.th.jpg) (http://img685.imageshack.us/i/ayacho0787.jpg/)

My favorites from this volume have to be these three:

"Mom, there's a gal (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%AE%E3%83%A3%E3%83%AB) outside!"
-- from her blog on 2/24. "When I was little I always wanted to become a gal, because they're so colorful and all."
But during the time there were hardly any gal around in Gunma, except when they were on TV. One day in her younger days when she and her mom went to Tokyo she finally saw a gal for the first time. "When I was looking out the window from the train I spotted a gal! I then spontaneously let out a 'mom there's a gal outside!'" ...just like a safari bus ride, or what!?

"There weren't any electrical plugs so I put it in Yuuka instead"
-- from her blog on 3/1. You can almost picture how well the 4 of them are getting along by this warming entry.
"Basically we were just playing around, but electrical cords have such a shape which would seem to fit anywhere, so I put one in Yuuka's shoulder."

"My mouth goes 'Saki-chan' all by itself!!"
-- from her blog on 3/5. Lately when calling on her friends at school, she mistakenly calls them "Saki-chan" instead. The thing is, there are no persons with the name "Saki" in her class.
"Whenever you're calling for (Ogawa) Saki she never turns around after the first time, so I always have to say her name like 3 times. And now all of a sudden it's become this common phrase of mine, even at school."

:bow:

Ayaka Wada is the one girl in HP that immediately reminded me of Charmy when I first saw her. A very pretty girl who will obviously be a stunningly beautiful woman one day.

Ayaka, Yuuka, Kanon and Saki have a good blend of personality traits that bode well for the success of S-mileage.

The big pressure now is on the HP songwriters- coming up with enough new, diverse material (along with the occasional wise choice of covering an old Jpop hit) to supply Morning Musume, Berryz, C-ute, S-mileage, Erina Mano, Buono and the various sub groups. Tis not an easy task.

My, she went on for a good long while about deer poop!
She says there was lots of deer poop in the snowy areas, so she'd be trying to walk around it all the time.
I think she said she had to be careful picking up snow for snowballs and stuff to make sure she didn't pick up any.
Dawa's always so delightfully weird!

As for the cake in the pb, it seems that she made it herself!

She said that she was embarrassed wearing some of the swimsuits at first, but thought it wasn't much different than always wearing short skirts all the time.

Sorry if this is a severely uninformed question, but is Dawa formally studying art history at university/in general? I know she's really interested in art but the announcement of her upcoming book, "Maiden's Guide to Paintings," has me wondering if she's receiving some kind of official training.

If I'm not wrong, she is studying formally at university of some sort. Can't remember exactly where or what though.

Art of being a pop idol

Ikuko Kitagawa / Japan News Staff Writer

Today, many Japanese entertainers have multiple skills to add value to their profession. For Ayaka Wada, a member of teenage pop idol group S/mileage, art is her favorite subject, regardless of whether it will eventually become her second career.

“You can’t be friends with the painting if you don’t show interest in the subject or open up your mind to it. You’ll learn nothing from the painting if you do that,” said the 19-year-old idol, adding that she visits exhibitions in smart attire to show respect for the art.

At the end of January, Wada visited “Ukiyo-e: A Journey Through the Floating World,” which is currently under way at the Tokyo Metropolitan Tokyo-Edo Museum.

Ukiyo-e show offers a taste of time travel

Ayaka Wada / Special to The Japan News

Japan was seen as an international leader in the field of art in the 18th and 19th centuries—the middle of the Edo period (1603-1867)—when ukiyo-e artists produced numerous masterpieces. This was the thought that came to my mind when I finished appreciating the works on display at “Ukiyo-e: A Journey Through the Floating World.”

Back then, a single ukiyo-e print was reportedly sold for the price of a bowl of soba noodles, or about several hundred yen in today’s money.

It was common for ukiyo-e, which had a significant influence on such artists as van Gogh, Monet and other impressionists, to be circulated among people in the town of Edo.

Considered a simple, ordinary item, ukiyo-e prints came to be used for wrapping porcelain pieces to be exported abroad. In Europe, they were received with great surprise by artists there. Many painters overseas reportedly became enthusiastic collectors of ukiyo-e.

I imagine Japanese people back in those days probably were not aware that ukiyo-e prints could be valuable artworks, unlike today, when they are highly appreciated.

Ayacho's book is available at CDJapan... http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-1639373 (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-1639373)

I'm a bit confused...  if it's a collection of her columns, which only ended recently, but it seems the book was released more than a year ago?

OR...  is it that the Japanese versions of the columns on PHP go way back, but the English translations on asianbeat are much more recent?

Finally...  my question...  does anyone know what the book is like inside?  Is it illustrated at all, or only text?

Well like you said, she had only recently completed her articles on asianbeat. The only way that I could see that date on CD Japan being accurate would be if she had already completed all of her articles over a year ago, given them to asianbeat, but then asianbeat had just been holding onto them all of this time, publishing them one at a time the way that they did, in order to "stretch" it out.

But even if that was the case, which I personally doubt, we would have known about the book. I mean, someone somewhere would have noticed/seen the CD Japan listing for it if it really had been on there for more than a year.

^ Yeah, I'm sure you're right then, JFC...  I only wondered if the Japanese version was older, and only the English translations on asianbeat were more recent.  But like you said, someone would have posted it here sooner if it had been around that long.  Thanks!    :)

I am just loving the way in which she is emerging in the field of art history, which is a small personal interest of mine also, having visited some of the French galleries she is interested in and appreciating the connection especially between the Japanese art world and the Western impressionists who took so much inspiration from Japan.  It somehow makes her even more attractive to see that she has a brain and can use it, and good to know that she has future plans even though I will deeply mourn her (hopefully long delayed but fearfully not) departure from Angerme.

After C-ute disbands.
Guess it makes for a smoother transition; Maimi will have ample time to handover the 'official duties of the Office of Leadership'  :P

Also! There's talk of them already announcing this since C-ute isn't participating in winter Hello!Con. I guess so that way Wada can kind of take over MC/leader roles for that while C-ute does their own thing.

So in fact, Dawa did take over leadership immediately from 1st Jan?  (I've been SO out of the loop, I know).  I am so happy for Dawa...  she works hard at all kinds of things both in and out of H!P and this role will seal her as one of the all-time H!P greats, imho.

...I started this thread 8 years ago and now I get to come in here and announce that

AYACHO WILL BE HELLO! PROJECT'S LEADER! (source (https://www.barks.jp/news/?id=1000136649))

I am so happy and so excited for her. She's my current H!P overall fave and I've been following her since the beginning so this is like THE BEST NEWS FOR ME.

I love the idea of Ayacho as H!P Leader, it's the culmination of a career that I have always followed with adoration...  amazing how the time has flown though.

I do have a puzzlement about it though...  can anyone explain (or guess) why Ayacho was chosen over Juice=Juice leader Yuka Miyazaki, who is 4 months older?

And...  does anyone have any evaluation of how Ayacho is performing as Leader by now?  I haven't seen enough evidence to go on...

Ayacho currently has the most seniority in H!P, joining the company in 2004 as a first generation Egg. Yuka didn't join until 2012/2013, so she's a bit further down the succession line.

"Leader of H!P" is mostly a ceremonial position from what I know; if Maimi was any indication we should expect to see an example of Ayacho's leadership duty at Duu's graduation. (Rio's grad should've been first, but, well...)

Aha!  So it's not purely on birth date, but on seniority of service in H!P.  In fact, would be it always be the longest serving member then?  And is a group's leader always going to be the longest serving (but not necessarily the oldest) member, too?  Sorry for all the questions.  None of this ever occurred to me until Sayu graduated and the H!P leader was not automatically the Momusu leader...  and then I assumed it was done on age, but obviously not.  All so interesting!  (Sorry if this seems mundane to everyone else, hehe).

Yes, Leader of H!P doesn't seem to have much role outside heading up the MCs at H!P events, and appearing at graduations.  I really hope she can make Duu feel very special at her graduation...  and yes, well, Rio's sudden dropping was a shock...  your comment got me looking into that as well, on her thread.

Thanks a heap!

Maybe this was noted elsewhere, but Ayacho graduated from her university in March, majoring in Art History.  I already bought her two books on art history, which I found while travelling in Japan.

Her own blog post about her graduation is here:  https://ameblo.jp/angerme-ayakawada/entry-12257909799.html   It seems that Blog Project (http://blog-project.net/wada-ayaka) didn't pick up on this entry.  I would have thought it was an important entry in Ayacho's life, but of course, it's not an H!P related matter I guess.

From the little I can make out, seems she was anxious about how she would be accepted by her fellow students, and then she wondered if they had known that she was an idol.  But in the end, they did know but they didn't make a big deal out of it.  And so she ended up with good friends at her university and enjoyed her studies. 

Hopefully this is something she can return to eventually after graduation, which is hopefully still a couple of years away.

...wait she already wrote two books on art history?! :shocked

So she's one of those who can look at a painting & not only name the artist, but which period/style was it painted during?

Yup, she's a real professional art historian.  These are her two books, on CDJapan website:

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-1924908

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-1639373

Then this is what remains of a series she did on AsianBeat:  http://asianbeat.com/en/ukiyoe/

This is an interview with her and Takamasa Sakurai, who sadly was later killed by a train in Tokyo:  http://asianbeat.com/en/ukiyoe/special.html

And this is one of Ayacho's book launches:  https://tokyogirlsupdate.com/smileage-ayaka-wada-artbook-20140318949.html

I think it's really a combo of both seniority and age, depending on how big the gaps are. When Morning Musume underwent a leadership shuffle back in 2005, Yossy got assigned leader despite Mikitty being a few months older...but on the flip side, when Gaki graduated in 2012 H!P leadership went to Sayu despite Saki Shimizu technically being in H!P longer (likely due to Sayu being 2 years older and leader of Momusu). Naturally stuff like this ends up causing confusion amongst fans and leads to some believing Harunan would be picked ahead of anyone else regarding leadership of both MM and H!P. :lol:

Also it might be up to the girls themselves, as individual H!P groups don't always go with the oldest member as leader (see Melon Kinenbi, C-ute's original lineup, both Factory groups).

^  Thanks, J-Triumf, for that really detailed explanation...  wow, you REALLY know your H!P history, puts me to shame!  Stuff like this is what makes me SO happy to be in this forum, I always end up finding out so much more than I can deliver.

On the delivery side...  let me offer a compilation I made up of ALL of the Ayacho art history articles from AsianBeat (trawled them out of the Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/) as they are now mostly gone from the main AsianBeat site page).  I have added some interviews as well, not all about her art thing, though mostly.

No mention here yet of her graduation announcement...  quoting from the separate thread where this was announced (and where there was no reaction really either)...

She will be graduating in next year's 2019 Haru concert

I guess this was to be expected. She will have been H!P leader for more than two years, and leader of Angerme for 10 years including the wonderful S/mileage years.  She has been in H!P since she was 10 years old, since 2004 which is as long as I have been an H!P fan.

When I first saw her emerge in S/mileage in 2009, I was doubtful how far she might go, somehow she didn't inspire me right away.  But I now proudly own all her DVDs and PBs, and she will be like Sayu, one I will always follow with interest now.

I love that she has an academic interest to now pursue, and I hope to know something of her budding career as an art historian.  It's wonderful that someone so sexy and vivacious can also be such a geek.

Dawa, it's been a wonderful 10 years.  (I barely noticed her before S/mileage).

Simply, thank you...  and I look forward to supporting you until graduation, and if possible beyond.
