Team A - 6th Stage "Mokugekisha (目撃者)"
« on: April 17, 2010, 02:13:21 PM »
We have a date: 2010-06-19

Still a couple of months away..

Any units you'd like to see or predictions?

I do hope they'll mix up the original team A members with the new ones.

Shonichi refers to the first day of the stage, it is not the name of the stage  :)

Yeah shonichi='first day' in japanese.

Well from how B5 and K6 have been structured I think leads for units will be
Takamina,
Haruna,
Acchan,
Shinoda
and Akicha

I'm hoping the distribution of lines and such is more like K6 than B5 =(

set made by me
Here's me singing and dancing!

M0 miniskirt no yosei (zenza girls: Takeuchi, Mori, Shimada)

Miyu FUCK YEAH. Awesome song. I really like the twiling.

M1 mokugekisha

Costume looks great. Pretty fitting for a title song, imo.

M2 zenjin mitou

Awesome start, with them stripping! Fuckin' catchy hook! The dance is great.

M3 ibitsu na shinju

Awesome outfits again. Kojima + sleeveless = VERY YES. Epic dance break. Did they auto-tune Mariko?

M4 akogare no popstar

Not really feeling this song. But they all look good!

MC

Roffle. Lovetan is so mean. Natsumi just totally dissed Team A. Harugon is on helium, I think. Haachan looks hot.

M5 ude wo kunde (Maeda Atuko, Nakaya Sayaka, Kuramochi Asuka)

Fuuuuuck, they look great. Nakayan obviously just pretending to press the keys. Staff-san tasukete! Acchan sounds pretty good. Was a little slow, but I liked it..

M6 enjo rosen (Sashihara Rino, Takajo Aki)

Fridge girl! Cute outfits! Pretty boring otherwise.

M7 itoshiki no akuseru (Takahashi Minami)

AW SHIT TAKAMINA SOLO. She looks like Link. Her sword glows. Great stage presence, and I don't think her voice prowess is something that needs to be elaborated. Would be funny if the sword broke and poked a wota in the eye.

M8 hoshi no mukougawa (Kojima Haruna, Nakata Chisato, Oota Aika, Iwasa Misaki)

I fell asleep before the song even started. Wasamin is super cute. Reminds me of SPEED.

M9 saboten to gold rush (Shinoda Mariko, Katayama Haruka, Matsubara Natsumi, Nakagawa Haruka, Ooya Shizuka, Maeda Ami)

This was alright. Kinda..samey the whole way. Mariko doesn't sound like Mariko.

MC

Damn, Harugon is mean.

M10 utsukushiki mono

Fuuuuuuuck this was so hot. The monologues are fucking awesome. I think they bought the Iroppoi Jirettai outfits from UFA.

M11 ai wo kure

Awesome group song! Dance is fap.

M12 matenrou no kyori

Funky lighting! Harugon looks so fucking happy to be there!

MC

Lovetan and Takamina making a great pair. <3 WTF with Sasshi's hair? Wasamin stepping up!

M13 inochi no imi

The outfit was promising, but this song is a snoozefest.

M14 i'm crying

Dammit, Masa mentioned the BSB likeness and I can't shake it out now. But man, this song is awesome. Probably my favourite song.

M15 zutto zutto

So..bubblepop.

MC

Don't cry, Takamina. ;__;

M16 pioneer

This song started out kinda slow, but I really love it now! Bitchin' solo, and the chorus is sweeeeet. Fitting end for an awesome stage.

M0 Miniskirt no Yosei: To be honest I haven't really paid that much attention to research students. That being said I actually enjoyed the perf a lot and I even liked the song. Haruka Shimada is fucking awesome and especially her dancing skillz are off the hook! PROMOTION PLZ! Maliciel's Nose Girl seems pretty cool too but I wouldn't promote her yet :P

M1 Mokugekisha: WTF @ Berlin Wall footage. The weirdest intro ever! I ain't really feelin' the outfits but the song itself is actually pretty awesome. And most importantly, Acchan doesn't look bored or lazy :P

M2 Zenjin Mitou: Oh shit! This song is DOPE! Too bad the outfits make everybody look as big as Amina.

M3 Ibitsu na Shinju: Whoa! Another awesome song, even Mariko's vocals sound decent. The outfits are super sexy! Awesome dance break! Nakayan's thighs :drool:

M4 Akogare no Popstar: Ehh.... I don't like Acchan's intro but overall she has been great so far. I think the Senbatsu election failure has made her work harder. Anyways another decent song and Sasshi's looking mad cute <3

MC: Acchan forgetting the song titles is like the cutest failure ever. Sasshi & Akicha are fired up! Akicha's lame ass catchphrase doesn't sound that bad for once lol... Nakayan's voice sounds crazy high. Takamina & Acchan are as pro as ever. I have a feeling that Lovetan will be awesome in Team A and especially Takamina x Lovetan pairing would be comedy gold. Harugon is such a weirdo! Haachan's intro :thumbup

M5 Ude wo Kunde: Acchan's unit song! Acchan looks frickin' gorgeous but unfortunately the song is booooooring. Nakayan playing da keyboard :thumbup

M6 Enjo Rosen: Akicha & Sasshi! Awesome outfits! Man, this is so much better than Acchan's unit song. I'm not the biggest Akicha-fan but she has impressed me so far. And Sasshi once again looks ridiculously pretty <3

M7 Itoshiki no Akuseru: LOL WTH IS TAKAMINA WEARING?! ...anyways Ninja Takamina is gangster as hell. This performance is PURE AWESOMENESS. Takamina's vocals sound great, her dancing is as good as ever and even the song is dope as fuck. Let's have a sword fight!

M8 Hoshi no Mukougawa: Wasamin's looking all moe~ as fuck but that's about it. The song ain't bad but it's kinda forgettable.

M9 Saboten to Gold Rush: Awwww yeah! Finally a rock song! Lovin' the dance choreography and the outfits. Mariko-sama's dancing be lookin' tight :bow:

MC: LOL @ Harugon's Ninja Takamina monomane. That girl is so weird and amusing. Lil' Maeda is looking pretty <3

M10 Utsukushiki Mono: Hoooly shit! This song is sexy! It has everything: fanservice, sexy dance choreography & erotic talk parts. PURE MOTHERFUCKING WIN! I heard Haruna's voice and jizzed in my pants :fap

M11 Ai wo Kure: Whooooooo! Old school jpop disco flava! I'm fuckin' lovin' this stage :twothumbs

M12 Matenrou no Kyori: Iiwake Maybe Part 2... which isn't actually a bad thing. A catchy and energetic song :thumbup

MC: More Takamina x Lovetan awesomeness! Every Team A MC should have Takamina & Lovetan as center girls XD

M13 Inochi no Imi: Horrible, horrible outfits. The song ain't that bad but it's maybe a bit too generic.

M14 I'm Crying: What the... AKB48 goes Backstreet Boys :shocked: But maaaaaaan, this is such a cool performance! One of the coolest AKB songs ever :yep:

M15 Zutto Zutto: Iiwake Maybe Part 2142. If "I'm Crying" didn't sound like an AKB song at all then Zutto Zutto is the opposite. This song is sooooooo AKB :P

M16 Pioneer: The new Team A theme song! Pioneer is almost like AKB Sanjou on steroids :thumbup

Conclusion: A6 is FUCKING AWESOME! :twothumbs

Having waited for this stage ever since the team shuffles were announced, I stayed up way past my bedtime, work night and all, to watch this. Level of disappointment: almost none. :w00t:

Overall, I love it. Though Team A has always had some awesome girls, the only stage of theirs I was able to get into was A4. I learned to appreciate the older stages, but only when they were covered by other teams. :nervous So to be wowed by an A stage is an awesome feeling indeed. It hasn't happened in close to three years. :lol:

The songs themselves, I found myself liking to varying degrees. Miniskirt no Yosei is the first kenkyuusei song I liked on the first go. It's catchy and pretty fun. As we begin the stage, we're greeted with some... footage of various riots and protests. Well that's what I always think of when AKB48 comes to mind. :nervous When Mokugekisha gets going though, it's an AWESOME song. Has a bit of an old school feel to it. I really like the outfits, too. Zenjin Mitou is okay. I like the melody and it features some good singing. Ibitsu na Shinju has a traditional Team A feel to it. Also has some very hot outfits. They're going to have to do some modifications to them, though. Nakayan's pearls broke pretty quick (oh my God is she hot in this outfit or what :jerk: ) and I saw some others that has loose-looking pearls. Shiichan also looked DAMN good here. Akogare no Popstar is probably my favorite song of the first group set. Really catchy, feels like a mix of a Team A and B song. It also features a lot of the underdogs.

Ude wo Kunde was better than I expected. I was worried it would be Nagisa no Cherry v3.0 but they actually made good use of Mocchi and Nakayan in this song. I wonder if Nakayan is suppose to really be playing in this song. They had a long delay before it began and a staffer out during the performance trying to get something working but it didn't look like they are successful. Poor Nakayan. :lol: Stuff's just breaking on her left and right in this show. Then... Enjo Rosen. When I heard of a Sasshicha unit I expected either a train wreck or gold. I wouldn't say it's gold but I like it a lot. The outfits are pretty cute and their singing is good. I love Sasshi's voice! :thumbsup Itoshiki no Akuseru... as much as the wota in me wants to mindlessly support Sasshi, I have to admit that this is my favorite of the units. The outfit reminds me of some kind of jpop rehash of something from The Legend of Zelda. The song itself has a very late-90's Megumi Hayashibara anisong feel to it. Coupled on top of Takamina's AMAZING vocals, this is probably my favorite AKB48 solo song. It might even rival Rena's Kareha no Station. It's that fucking cool. Plus, SHE HAS A SWORD OF LIGHT. You couldn't find something cooler if you wanted to! :lol: Hoshi no Mukougawa is... a slow song. I don't really love slow songs but this is an exception. I was really surprised by it. For one, WASAMIN. :wub: Haruna also has some really good vocals in here. Some of the harmonies in the chorus (I think that's the right musical terms, lol) are really beautiful, too. I was expecting Saboten to Gold rush to be really mediocre like most of the large units that often feel like leftovers, but this one is really cool. It has a country-pop kind of feel to it that really works well. It's catchy as hell. It also does a good job of featuring the girls who are in it. Shiichan is damn awesome in it, as are Haachan and Ami.

Utsukushiki Mono continues the theme of awesome intros to songs in this stage. Parts of this song are pretty good but I find the talking over it a little annoying. Sasshi is so going to kick Wasamin's ass for touching her Lovetan, though. :lol: Ai wo Kure is a little on the bland side compared to the other songs. Kinda reminds me of an older Team K style song. Matenrou no Kyori is fun and energetic, I like it. Inochi no Imi is a pretty typical pre-encore song. I wasn't wowed by it, but it's okay. The pants to the outfits are ghetto. :rofl:

I'm crying definitely has BSB vibes all over it. :nervous The song is a little weak, but I like the choreography in it a lot. Zutto Zutto is pretty good. I like it but it feels like a song we've heard many times before in AKB48. The style's really typical, I guess.I love Pioneer simply because it ends the stage on an energetic tone. I'm glad Team A has a bit of a theme song now, but... it's not as good as I'd like it to be.  :nervous

LOL at the ending comments. Harugon finally found someone to look down on. :rofl:

I skipped the MC's last night due to time constraints but watched them today and they were... okay. Most of the members are kinda like how Team B was at the beginning. A lot are trying to find their cues and place. Some are fitting right in though. Lovetan totally has a thing going on with Takamina and it's going to be endlessly entertaining. :)

Overall, I think this is a pretty great stage. It didn't blow the doors off the house but it left a mark for sure. Now I am not entirely sure which team is my favorite. A6 and K6 are a VERY tight match. Sadly, B is definitely my least favorite AKB48 team as of right now. Not to say I hate them but... these stages are indeed MUCH better. As for balance, I am a little disappointed but I don't think it's that bad. I'm glad we get to see the underdogs doing stuff, but it's definitely still tiered. I guess K6 accidentally did a good job of disguising that. Still, the balance is enough to make me happy... for the most part. I really wanted to see more Wasamin in this concert. Indeed, I could also stand to see Ami and Haachan doing more, but I think Wasamin has the potential to shake up the entire AKB48 group, let alone the team she is in. I just want her to have that chance. :thumbup In any case, I look forward to seeing more of this one in the future for sure. :)

M0 miniskirt no yosei (zenza girls: Takeuchi, Mori, Shimada)
Not bad, but I’m not in the mood for something this cutesy haha.

M1 mokugekisha
Witness… Berlin wall… members as bricks? Lifeless bodies? White gestapo outfits?! Not really feeling the song atm.

M2 zenjin mitou
Cool dancing, outfits are kinda meh... song is forgetabble.

M3 ibitsu na shinju
Ok, now we’re talking! They all look great. Ok song, some uplifting parts. Dancing (y).

M4 akogare no popstar
Acchan pimping time intro. Great song. Wasamin! Sasshi! They all look amazing.

M5 ude wo kunde (Maeda Atuko, Nakaya Sayaka, Kuramochi Asuka)
They look really good. I think I’ll dig this song if the mood is right. It’s a bit long though.

M6 enjo rosen (Sashihara Rino, Takajo Aki)
Sasshicha!!! They look pretty epic. I quite certain parts of this song, but I think I just want to like it because it’s Sasshi and Akicha haha.

M7 itoshiki no akuseru (Takahashi Minami)

Awesome outfit. She’s a pro in pretty much every aspect. Not a big fan of the song, but with a performance like this, that doesn’t even matter that much anymore. Her stand-by (whoever that is) has a big challenge! Awesome sword.

M8 hoshi no mukougawa (Kojima Haruna, Nakata Chisato, Oota Aika, Iwasa Misaki)
Good traveling by train music. Another cool set of outfits. Still missing something though.

M9 saboten to gold rush (Shinoda Mariko, Katayama Haruka, Matsubara Natsumi, Nakagawa Haruka, Ooya Shizuka, Maeda Ami)
Reminds me of line-dancing music. This unit is miss-use of harugon, katayama, etc. How are they supposed to shine in something as craptacular like this!

M10 utsukushiki mono
Iroppoi Jirettai outfits indeed, but that’s great because I love those. Haruna omg. Epic dancing, hot! But I don’t see myself listening to this song without the eye candy to back it up.

M11 ai wo kure
Boooooring.

M12 matenrou no kyori
Now this rocks! Bit generic, but why change what works.

M13 inochi no imi
+1 on not liking the outfits. Boooring song.

M14 I'm crying
Lmao, I totally get the bsb comments. It’s actually pretty damn cool haha.

M15 zutto zutto
Epic guitars. Typical AKB stuff, which is still great.

M16 pioneer

More epic guitars. Probably my fav song of the stage.

Conclusion:
- The girls all looked great. Hopefully Wasamin gets some more love now.
- Most of the songs are good, but it’s missing some classics. I mean, B5 was less good on average, but it does have some really cool songs that stand out. That's kinda what I'm missing with this stage, even though 'Pioneer' and 'I'm Crying' could qualify for this.

Anyway, new Team A =  :thumbup
