Once upon a time, an announcement was made that AkiP was starting up yet another OOO48 group; this time in Osaka. I'm pretty sure my initial reaction was something along the lines of "What the hell!?! We don't need another group. There's already so many girls that I'll never remember them all. Screw this shit." Then I promptly began completely ignoring everything NMB48 related.
A quick word of advice: If you're trying to ignore anything in the 48 empire, stay the hell out of the AKBar48 Postwhoring Thread. Ok. No. I don't actually advise that at all. You may just miss out on what will turn out to be a major milestone in your fandom. In my case it was this post right here
Holy shit. Why so purdy?!
Good question, jaf.
Okay, so obviously this girl is absolutely gorgeous. I'll just go check out her thread real quick. It's not like I'm going to fall madly in love with her just by taking a quick look at - Holy hell, she was in a rock band!?! She performs Bird!?! Her vocals are fucking amazing!!! I am sooooo in love with this girl!!!
What can I say, I'm a sucker for the combination of looks and talent.
And that's the story of how I went from completely avoiding NMB48 to being a massive Sayanee fan within a matter of minutes. Of course, it took a while longer for me to realize that the entire group
is absolutely amazing, but that was the beginning.
And that is why I dedicate my 2000th post to Yamamoto Sayaka:
