[SUB] Mouse TV CM Summer Ver. Making of (IkuMai part)

FINALLY!!

Actually I finished subbing and rendering the video last week. But I don’t know why DM wouldn’t let me upload the video directly to its uploader. So I had to upload it using GC’s app. All in all, I’m glad it uploaded successfully.

Sooooo

This time I came back with a subbed video. I have no idea if there’s someone who already have posted the translation or even subbed the video like I did. Even so, I would upload it on my blog AND I FINALLY DID!

Well, at first, I was crazy over the IkuMai fan services in the Mouse TV CM making from a TV news. And I went even crazier watching the original making of video.

I meant, look at this!

ZOOM!

ZOOM ZOOM!!!

LOOK AT THE WAY IKUCHAN HOLDS MAIYAN’S CHEEK!!!!

OMG I THINK I’M GOING TO AJSAKDJGRJHA

*heavy breathes*

…let’s take a look at the other scenes.

Iku: “It suits you, you know?”

IKUO-KUN??? IKUO-KUN, IS THAT YOU?!!

…okay. So they’re undoing those buttons. And Ikuchan, where are you looking at?

The last…

NOW KISS, YOU TWO!!!

I really want to thank the cameraman who filmed this making of video. This is surely a masterpiece. Thank you. Thank you so much…

Now that this post and videos are posted. I can sleep peacefully tonight.

…and dreaming about Ikuchan and Maiyan.

The Pieces of My Happiness (6-June-2017)

Hi, all!

Inchan here.

I’m not making a full comeback to this blog yet, but since there are some things that made me happy in this late (12:25 AM, local time), I’ll write them down here.

So, I found this scanlation of NOGI_SATSU Vol.014 from 2ch

(Credit to the uploader. This photo is NOT mine)

Actually I’m currently in sleep-deprived mode since yesterday night but I discovered some things that made my tiredness flew away.

Let me highlight the ones which made me feel so happy.

First, this one.

[Shiraishi Mai]         [Wakatsuki Yumi]

Caption:
These two are frequently together. Strong desire to improve oneself is their mutual.

Hmm…

I…think this is new to me.
Indeed these two’s ambition is kinda alike. I mean, both of them are very diligent and responsible to their works. But the thing that they’re together quite frequently is surprising to me.

I would love to see them together in an interview or even radio program. Talking about how they proceed their work or maybe talking the future of Nogizaka. Someone please ask staff-san for me. (If they already did one or two, kindly inform me)

 

Up next,

[Ikuta Erika]

My oshimen. Do your best for “Les Misérables” musical!

HERE COMES MY OH-TEE-PEW!!! ASLKFAGNHSJDGH

 

Okay, calm your horses, self!

I was about to fall asleep while waiting for the scanlation to be loaded. But the moment I read that Maiyan took the photo, I FULLY AWAKE! I almost gasped so loud but thanks to the agility of my hand. It quickly covered my mouth. If not, I might wake my friends up (currently on sleepover ww).

Let’s get back and focus on the words “My oshimen” in the caption.
As far as I could dig in, Maiyan chose Ikuchan as her oshimen since the early days of Nogizaka. I found it from a magazine scanlation and a web portal interview. But I won’t write the details because I’m heating it up for my future blog post :3

Maybe it just me, but…okay. First, let me use my one of linguistic knowledge; pragmatics, to analyze the words of “My oshimen”.

I can feel the nuance that Maiyan is very proud of Ikuchan. Ikuchan is appearing in Japan’s and worldwide’s well known musical “Les Misérables”. It’s like Maiyan were implying, “Choosing Ikuchan as my oshimen is the right choice” or “Everyone, this multi-talented member of Nogizaka IS my oshimen”.

Well, those are merely my hypothesis. Please don’t take it seriously. Viva free-speech!

The thing is…it’s my relief that Maiyan didn’t oshihen to other member. Well, she almost did to Minami but i think Minami became her ni-oshi (2nd oshimen) ww.

 

Last one,

CAN YOU SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS?????!!! GOSH, I THINK I’M ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!!

I just watched some bonus footage from the 3rd album. I watched this from “Nonaka’s Douga (Video)”.

 

God…

 

It’s waaaaaay too beautiful that I might cry…

 

But if I cry,

It will worsen my runny nose.

 

Well, then.

I can barely open my eyes now. My apology if there are some mistypes in this blog post.
I’m typing in a room with the lights off.

 

See you again!

Ikuta Erika’s 2017 Seitansai Project (Erika-sama)

IT’S TOMORROW AND ONLY 3 OUT OF 14 PROJECTS ARE DONE AND PUBLISHED!!!

The project didn’t go well as I planned. At first, I was planning to do this project in the beginning of January. So I’d post 20 posts before Ikuchan’s special day comes.

Reality is really cruel. Being an employee sucks. I wanna go back to be a sophomore!

Well, let’s put that away. I’m planning to post the rests of 11 projects later after 22nd.

This time is about “Erika-sama” (-sama is used as suffix after person’s name as honorific and often used to refer lords, princes, princesses etc.). Kanarin (Nakada Kana) was the first one who called Ikuchan as “Erika-sama”. The reason why she called Ikuchan like that was because Ikuchan’s behavior and lifestyle is like a daughter of high-class family (お嬢様 Ojousama). In additions, she was born in Germany, she did some nonsholastic courses (piano, English conversation, ballet, Japanese caligraphy, and swimming), and enrolled in Musical Shools (High School and University).

I cut some scenes from Nogidoko where Erika-sama is mentioned. The first time was in Nogidoko ep. 31.  The topic was “Weird person around me” and Kanarin is pointed out to talk about it. She said that Ikuchan is a weird person.

There was one time when Ikuchan and Minami-chan are waiting for trains to go home. But their homes were in opposite way. When the train for Minami-chan’s home direction was about to come, Ikuchan told Minami-chan to wait for her train to come. And when the train for Ikuchan’s home direction came, she left Minami-chan alone.

In the same episode, Reika was also mentioned Ikuchan as a weird person. Ikuchan often babbles her complex about having a long forehead. Reika denied that because her forehead isn’t that long. But Ikuchan insisted and kept saying that her forehead is longer than Reika. To reassure that her forehead isn’t long, Shitara said, “There are only a few of girls who as cute as you.” Ikuchan couldn’t hide her happiness being told like that. She grinned in happiness and everyone broke into laughter.

In ep. 86 where 1st gen and 2nd gen are appearing in Nogidoko together for the first time, Shitara said to the 2nd gen members to call Ikuchan in special way. And 1st gen members said “Call her ‘Erika-sama’” but Ikuchan didn’t want that special treat and said “Just call me as friendly as you want.”

In Nogizaka no ‘No’ radio (in 46 hours TV – 4th anniversary), she ranked 1st and became the center for Princess Senbatsu members.

A/N:
I don’t have much time for this. I need to prepare for my mini-thesis pre-exam which is will be held on Thursday. AND I HAVE TO SUBMIT THE DRAFT TOMORROW AJKSJGRJI!! Wish me luck!

Ikuta Erika's 2017 Seitansai Project (Wakatsuki Yumi)

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x58ai1l

Okay, first of all, let me say this;

I apologize to every WakaRei or WakaNana or WakaNanaRei (ShichiGatsuSakura 七月桜) shippers out there because I once ever paired Ikuchan with Wakatsuki. m(_ _)m
