Know more about Shinoda Mariko, AKB48 Members’ Discussions Part 2
This should help any of your followers if they wondering which Perfume member is it.
The one doing the talking/crying is Acchan, who in Perfume does the crowd engagement/speaking thing, and is known for being the active one.
To her left (the short haired one) Nocchi, who is cool in like the slightly awkward, soft spoken way, though her jokes hit the hardest.
Then the long, straight haired one is Kashiyuka, who takes quiet to the next level.
P.S Thanks for the translation!

Anyone have a video link to the Shukan AKB Dokkiri episode where Mariko goes crazy angry with Nito?
If you can get what’s going on without subs.

One of the oddest things I do at home is talk with my parents about pop culture, and that includes the Idols that I follow.
So here’s a conversation that transpired while watching AKB48 on Music Station:
I (pointing to Sashihara Rino): They troll on her half the time in variety.
I: She’s an anti-hero in some way or another. She was one of the fastest rising members in the group, until she was caught flirting with a fan. Got packed off to the South of Japan, and is now the centre of the song.
(Camera pans out to the Senbatsu)
Dad: That’s a lot of people. Is that really AKB48?
I: Yeah. (Haven’t got the heart to tell him that is just the most popular girls, and a fraction of the full numbers)
(We watch “Koisuru Fortune Cookie”)
I (points to Oshima Yuko): I kinda like her.
I (points to Shinoda Mariko): She’s leaving. Next week as of the show’s broadcast date.
I (points to Itano Tomomi): She’s leaving too.
Dad: So why would you support a group where everybody seems to be leaving. (He had seen Maeda Atsuko's depature last year, hence his impressions).
I: Think of group as like a development ground. People like get better or successful with time, and then they move on, while new people move up.
Dad (points at Watanabe Mayu): So is this one leaving?
I: Hell No.
The dad then walks off. I consider my attempts at conversations a failure.
I (Points to Shimazaki Haruka): She’s in for the long haul, an up and coming member.
The dad just laughs coldly.

#F(x) #pink tape #it literally is a tape #nostalgia #reply me 1997
And the award for most interesting packaging goes to… F(x)
Considering all the things I could say about F(x)’s latest, I absolutely cannot knock them for the album packaging.
Really digging the VHS tape case, though I would not try sticking that in my VCR, and it does smack of the Reply Me 1997 album concept.
