That's literally from the 13th single Type B cover.
i saw this clip a while back after I read of this bullying happening (was not a fan yet prior to this). I don't know if this particular episode was scripted or not. But they seem genuine in their exchange imo. I would assume this was before Hori being chosen as center for Barrette since she still has long hair.
OP is Karen? Well tickle me surprised, I thought it was egghead
I love how shameless SEA-wannabes like yourselves pretend jacking off all the time like some simian is common-place behavior outside of your low rent, backwater villages
She looked pretty good once her hair reached shoulder length. The extensions just give her more options to play with.
It's Anta Dare.
One day before they air Anta Roke, Anta Dare teases it. Has happened in all 4 episodes. They've even evil enough to upload the Anta Dares that tease the Anta Rokes, but they don't upload the Anta Rokes.
Karen needs to show off her legs more.
Live alone, nighttime, watching AKB horror night, hearing random noises. This was a terrible idea. Clinching that screwdriver.
Thinking about the future is depressing.
>Although the name "エミリー" is romanized as "Emily", she said on 755 that she prefers her name to be written as Emiri
It is though, it's not like there's a law that says Emily is the correct romanization of エミリー. In fact, "correct" romanizations don't exist in the first place, it's all preference and dependent on which system you use. Some people would probably write it as Emirii, Emiry, Emilii. None of them are incorrect.
That's not how it works. Especially with a pick like that. She doesn't look all there in the head.
Ashurin's mom is from Myanmar.
Too bad Milky is getting old, and not in a good way.
Just a harmless reminder that Miku > Nako
would squeeze the lemon. does that count?
>sitting in the sofa
>staring at the celing
>dont know what to do with my life
>she puts her head in my shoulder
>"are you having that pathetic self-loathing again?"
>"stop it. now."
When she rests her head on your chest, I pretend shes my oshi.
And it hurts even more. Don't do it anon.
I would normally tell you to spoil that shit or something, but she actually kinda does.
An exchange student I know looks like Shihorin
Management sacrificed the beach single this year to try and keep the salt flowing.
Gaijin eyes time? This guy reminds me of Tani. Gaijin eyes or not?
Piggu gaijins are forgetting to go homu again.

>AOA proved their international popularity with their latest Japanese album. They're not only a top girl group in Korea but also in Japan! Their first full-length Japanese album 'Ace of Angels' has topped Oricon's 'Daily Albums Chart'!
why do nips love korea so much
>this numbers are faked by the koreans
that is actually possible though, and "sajaegi", a form of number manipulation, is a well-known practice in the korean market, so much that some of their top entertainment companies are demanding an investigation and their music industry association has already compromised to get it done.
moreover, aoa is a god-awful group and their company is known for their shady antics.
>that is actually possible though
Also I get this feeling the SMJ executives have sent some work experience chap to do a full analysis on the matter.
Thank you very much to everyone who came by.
Lotte and Softbank, which are Korean companies with a very close connection to the Korean government (for example, Lotte received government money in the 2007 economic crisis so it could artificially keep afloat and dominate the weakened Japanese market) are such big players in the Japanese economy that it's impossible for many other companies to refuse their "offers". Doing so would be considered incredibly rude, and would invite the wrath of the Japan Times and the CRAC. If it isn't Softbank/Lotte pressuring Japanese sellers to manipulate the numbers, it's the companies themselves buying up huge numbers of CDs to artificially inflate the numbers, probably recycling them onto the market again in hope of people being convinced to buy the new "hit album" which would have netted all of 200.000 copies sold in all if no numbers had been manipulated.
do they use each other's?
do staff-sans go in for a sneaky sniff and lick?
Still don't see the relation with some korean band doing it well in oricon but anyway if koreans are taking over maybe it's Japan's fault, that guy created one of the biggest companies in japan because jaapnese people bought his shit, it's all their fault.
Hillary, if you're posting here get them to use this song for the next Nogieigo
>it's the companies themselves buying up huge numbers of CDs to artificially inflate the numbers, probably recycling them onto the market again in hope of people being convinced to buy the new "hit album" which would have netted all of 200.000 copies sold in all if no numbers had been manipulated.
That's exactly what Korean companies do. It's not about the profit that they can make from the sales, which is minimal even if it's on the hundreds of thousands of sales anyway, but about the kind of public recognition, tv appearances and commercial deals with other companies (for publicity, TV spots or whatever) that they can land, building on the inertia of a push derived from the charts to try to establish the group in the market.
That's a lovely today's coordinate
What's rong with this girl. She's a fucking Idol. Why would and idol hold a hand of a marry man, in the midel of the street, at night? Is she retarded or something. I mean, she should know the danger.
It's because of bad experiences with Western and SEA fans, as if you couldn't guess. If management allowed non-Japanese fans to use their sites and infrastructure freely, they'd be in for even more of the nightmares that Western fans have brought before. Stalking idols, spamming Twitter accounts, constantly messaging both idols and management in English and going hysterically amok when it doesn't instantly get replied to, spreading libel and misinformation (just watch a SEA sub and see how many times the subbers compromise the meaning of the original Japanese to imply that their ship is true) and in general harassing, bothering and spamming the community. It freaks out the idols, burdens management and scares away the Japanese fans, and is extremely damaging to the groups.
If you're really a fan, anyway, you should be able to use VPNs and read Japanese. By requiring that of Western fans (remember, Western fans still get segments on for example NogiEigo and Goboten, so management isn't hostile to them), management filters out most of the truly disruptive shrieking weeaboos and online stalkers.
It is in Japan. Just not outside Japan. And besides, it would be better if the group went digital to a greater extent. I have nearly 30 copies of the next album on the way and only plan on keeping 1. That's a ridiculous amount of waste.
I just think they should make the music easier to buy outside Japan. Loads of foreign fans are pirating all the music because it's way faster than shipping CDs, not to mention the fees involved with importing a CD (depending on your location). If they offered high-quality downloads to other countries I think they'd pull in a decent amount of money and the fans would appreciate it.
As far as other services being region-restricted, I definitely agree with you. If I ever move home, it'd definitely be disappointing to be cut off, since a VPN won't do much good when a Softbank/docomo/AU account is required. But it seems like a small price to pay when I think of the creepy, gaijin-infested shithole that is the G+ comment section.
I've been looking through shamekai pictures for pose ideas and I'm stumped, the table makes almost everything look lame.
I think I'll ask for emotions instead. How do you say restrained contempt in Japanese?
he was trying to force her just like kotoko
and, yes, it worked because half of the people here are meme spouting bandwagoners, that's why fotm exist
i'm not one of the guys hating on mio, stop being so defensive
this is what i tried to say
i agree that hatiing shitposting is way worse, coherent critics aren't but they aren't posted often here, although there are a few good points made sometimes imo
most of the times critics are always dismissed anyway
There's not much exposure to them. Kojichuu is crap, there's no bingo, Ranze and KTK are notorious blog unfrequenters. They appear in magazines sometimes.
At least there will be new specials with the new single. Hyped about that.
>It's like when pizza-cuck tried to make people stop posting Etou Misa with his angry rants.
she was the one who claimed to be a glutton for attention, and demanded to have an entire doko episode about her having an eating competition, where she was completely obliterated by more than 5 people. that's what she gets for lying to get attention.
The only one lying to get more attention is you.
So you're implying that Ikuta claiming to be the cute "hungry girl" character and then getting completely smeared doesn't show that she's an attention-hungry primadonna who has a pathologically inflated image of her own abilities and uniqueness?
Ikuta is constantly pushing herself on things like instrumental skills and singing that she's at best average at, and then starts flipping her shit if she doesn't get praised by everyone for it. If someone beats her because she assumed as a matter of course that she'd win, she either gets hysterical and starts crying or just looks completely dead inside for the rest of the shooting, sulking and not saying anything.
As much as you might desperately be depending on me saying otherwise, the only reason I've ever made more than one post in a row about that is because you Ikuta drones seem completely impervious to logic. I've learnt my lesson now, so I'll just leave it at this - that way, everyone who isn't nurturing a delusional, pseudo-masochistic purity fantasy about a teenage primadonna with no special talents to speak of can at least get the clue about Ikuta.
Why are you always pointing your finger to us? The so called "Ikuta drones"?
Listen here for a moment, ask yourself this.
What would you achieve if you convinced 100 people that Ikuta is the one to blame for the show?
Satisfaction. Believe it or not, I actually feel satisfied when I know other people aren't being delusional, misinformed or misled. That's one of the major reasons why I actually keep on posting here. I can't take the idea of people believing in obvious setups, whether it's Ikuta's pretense of having talent or the Korean government's organized IP war on Japan, and as such it satisfies me to know that I can help with making other people see those deceptions for what they are. On top of that, for every person who knows that Ikuta is a pampered, hysterical attention whore who used her leverage around Nogibingo 2 to muscle her way into making decisions about the show, there are three or four of their friends who'll also find out along the way.
I don't think you've ever convinced anyone of anything.
Believe what you want. I remember a few times, but bringing them up will just create shitstorms now that archive.moe has bitten it.
You're making a good Exhibit A. I keep on posting because the end result of people never actually being informed or broken out of their delusions is people like you.
Because of you i started listening to korean music, it's your fault that i did that, are you satisfied? You should stop talking about korea, you are only giving them more publicity, you should stop talking altogether.
Must be tiresome living with so much hatred and paranoia all the time.
I was just asking, hence the question.
No. One. Cares.
I say this as someone who doesn't even like any of the people or things you rail against.
Thread personalities are cancer. Please GTFO.
Who am I to disagree though, right? It's already the future, the age of the internet. This is what we have become to. We can easily judge and analyze a person based on what we see on the screen. Doesn't matter if we know them in real life, doesn't matter if they even know "I" exist.
A person is shit, because that's what I'm seeing.
Did Ikuta have a say in the complete suppression of 2nd gen nogis?
>Must be tiresome living with so much hatred and paranoia all the time.
His fault though, he's craving for that "satisfaction" so much he did not notice his greed for it is eating him out.
hello number 14233717, delete your post or i sell your data.
And I'm gonna echo that right back at you. I'm not even all that fond of thread personalities myself (and I didn't name myself, I just decided to roll with it for shits and giggles after people gave me a name), but the one thing that's more cancerous is people who think they're so representative of the board and "true 4chan board culture" that they blindly rail against everything that doesn't confirm their image of the Perfect Anonymous 4chan.
I'm just fine, thank you very much. It gives me the initiative I need to actually go about my life and stay passionate about things instead of wasting my life eating junk food and watching anime. It keeps me from being a useless lump, so thanks, but I'd rather have passion for something than roll along out of inertia.
Shit man. He's constantly telling himself that he's not gonna be a useless lump if he's actually convincing people via the internet.
That is sad as fuck.
I understand you man. I'm constantly telling myself to that "I NEED IDOLS IN MY LIFE" to keep me sane and not rape girls roaming around on the street.
>blindly rail against everything that doesn't confirm their image of the Perfect Anonymous 4chan
No, you fucking moron, I'm railing against your propensity to derail and generally fuck up the thread almost every single time you post.
Discounting the fact that Watkins ran the gold-pass service and was the one who collected the data in breach of his agreement with Hiroyuki, the frothing Japan Times ttongsul warriors who wrote the libelous screed about him only implied he was sending the data to the LDP, knowing that the target group of their libel would start screeching madly as soon as they heard the word "right-wing", completely ignoring anything else.
If, for example, my data gets sent to the LDP, there's a 99.9% chance that jack shit happens and a 0.1% chance I get a job offer.
That wasn't what I said, but you've already proven that your reading comprehension is grade-schooler level, so I won't even try.
I'm not even trying to derail the threads, sheesh. Look at what I post, think about it and move on. You don't need to reply, and honestly I'm getting a little bit confused as to why people actually still get this mad. It's fun, of course, but I never wanted any more than people giving my posts half a minute of thinking time and then moving on.
I think everyone here more or less is delusional enough to believe everyone not liking his oshi is just a shitposter or a blind hater, it's just that some of them are more prominent than others
I'd like to receive feedbacks by the thread about this
Simple, why can't you move on that there's ikuta drones that doesn't want to be convinced of your ideal. You're too old yet you can't still accept that there are people who does not think like you?
Not sure why the dislike for Ikuta is so intense. You make it sound like she got more power than Takamina. That would be funny actually, if they made Ikuchan the Nogi GM.
Are you implying I'm samefagging? Nothing on the entire Internet will get me to intentionally fuck up English grammar like some SEA monkey.
Well, that's none of my beeswax. Am I supposed to completely stop talking because people might react negatively to it?
Look, if you're fine with pushing a selfish, entitled and manipulative little bitch, that's fine by me. Hell, I actually kinda half-like Shibata, Suda and Murashige. What aggravates me is that people refuse to even see that Ikuta is a bitch, probably because of some pseudo-masochistic purity fantasy wherein a perfect, dominant noble ojou-sama descends from Heaven in order to save them and them alone.
Why would Ikuchan need defending? I like her, you don't. Sounds like we got it sorted.
