4/22 Yukirin at 40th Single MV Screening Event News Roundup

Yukirin along with Yuihan, Paruru, Renacchi and 300 fans attended the music video screening event of the AKB48 40th Single “Bokutachi ha Tatakawanai”. The director of the MV, Otomo Keishi, was also in attendance. Otomo Keishi is well known for his directing work for many NHK Taiga dramas such as Ryomaden. It was no surprise that the MV contained 12 mins of actions scenes. The MV is based on the theme of “Fighting without Fighting”. During the press interviews, Yukirin mentioned that she had wondered what a Paruru center song would be like but during performances, she noticed this light surrounding Paruru and that you can see how hard working Paruru is so therefore she thinks Paruru as center is great. Hearing the praises, Paruru replied back with “Haaaa?”. Yukirin retorted back with “see, that’s your good point.” Yukirin also spoke of Paruru’s saltiness and mentioned it would be better if she showed a bit more happiness and smiled more.   Photoset of Yukirin at Screening: View post on imgur.com   Preview of Yukirin in the MV:   Yukirin tweeted following the event: 新曲【僕たちは戦わない】完成披露試写会でした。沢山の方の目に触れてほしい。日本語あってるかな。 楽しみにしていてください☺️ pic.twitter.com/zXoPem9MCY — 柏木由紀 (@Yukiriiiin__K) April 22, 2015 English translation: Today was the music video screening event for new song “Bokutachi ha Tatakawanai” I want many people to watch it.

From his Facebook, seems he has been in Japan for a few days and has also gone to AKB48 Cafe and bought quite a few AKB48 goods. He was quite excited that Yukirin would be performing at the theatre. He even sneaked a picture of Yukirin during the stage which is a big no-no. He also mentioned in his post that it is not allowed.

Takamina’s Article on Yukirin (Eng Trans)

Takahashi Minami aka Takamina has a regular column on Weekly Playboy titled “AKB48 Column Bangaichi (AKB48 Column Without an Address) in which she writes about various topics. Generally, they’re things she wants to write about before she graduates. In the latest issue of April 20th, Takamina wrote about Yukirin. At the bottom of Takamina’s article, the new manager of NGT48, Imamura-san also wrote a bit regarding the two new members. Below is the translation of the article and the bonus bit from Imamura-san.   Original Article:   Note: As usual, I don’t do literal translations, I translate to make it work in English. This was done rather quickly and I didn’t review it that many times so there are errors, but I think we all get why Yukirin is amazing...

4/5 Yukirin HS Event Roundup & 755/Twitter (Eng Trans)

The Green Flash individual handshake event took place on April 5th at Makuhari Messe in Chiba. The night before, Yukirin stayed up late watching the latest 2nd Gen Draft Girls videos which featured each girl dancing and singing to a song. She probably went to sleep around 3am!   Yukirin updated 755 during the lunch break and after the hs event. Translations below.   Yukirin spilled corn soup all over her skirt! LOL that clumsy girl!     Yukirin also gave Riorin some lesson clothing that she no longer wore so Riorin was super high tension! lol https://plus.google.com/115776582911608446200/posts/4spV31WRbFZ   She also tweeted about the HS Event but no blog this time.   We later learned that all the 2nd Gen Draft girls were at the handshake event to meet with all the 48Group captains and scoutmans. Yukirin also went and met with the girls to gather notes (which explains why she didn’t go to sleep and was watching the youtube videos). Yukirin really cares about the future of AKB.   Source: http://www.nikkansports.com/entertainment/akb48/news/1440990.html http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/2051172/full/ http://news.dwango.jp/?itemid=19214...

Yukirin Election 2015 Donation Drive for Oversea Fans (5/7)

As mentioned before, the Japanese Yukirin Election Committee has made it available for oversea fans to donate money to the “Yukirin for #1 Cause”  (hehe) To make it easier for oversea fans (and to save a bit on the bank transfer fee), I will accept money via Paypal and pool all the money together and send it to the Japanese Yukirin Election committee. Japanese Yukirin Election committee website: http://2015.yuki-election.com/     If you want to donate, send an email to () I will confirm and send you Paypal details. No amount is too small (or too big) Thanks!!! You can also contact me via twitter: https://twitter.com/sillythings48 Period to Send Money: March 21st to May 6th  Please check out other fan campaigns in links below. All donators will be provided with information such as total collected, amounted transferred, etc. Bonus gifts.  I will have a draw for donators and give away various Yukirin official photos (mostly doubles of photos that I intentionally or unintentionally got lol) and cds. Details to come on the actual gifts. For any donators that are interested, I will have a draw and give away the following two photos (one to each person): This is a Thank You from me to you all Yukirin fans!!!   To answer some questions… 1. Why not just collect money and buy the tickets? Given past experience, buying tickets is difficult when you are not living in Japan. Last year, Yukirin World did a great job securing 200 tickets but that was the limit.  Timing is also tight when the seller has to send us the tickets physically.   2. Can we trust you? I think my online presence as an AKB fan is sufficient enough (I hope), usually went by the username of Sillythings. I used to be very active on Stage48, since 2010. I was a timer/translator/QA for SUB48. I’m most active now on twitter (sillythings48) and for this website. For anyone that does donate, I will provide proof of money transfer to the Japanese Yukirin Committee bank account. I initially had planned this year to just donate and vote where I can because I wasn’t sure if I can commit to anything. But, several people have asked me to do something so here it is. haha   3. Can we trust the Japanese Committee? That is something for you to decide.   Cheers, Maddie   Other Yukirin Fangroup Campaigns Indonesian Yukirin Fangroup Ticket Drive: http://arupyon1290.tumblr.com/post/115557911896/vote-for-yukirin-fundraising Chinese Yukirin Fangroup: http://yuyuyukirin11.5150.cnaaa7.com/read.php?tid=3165 YumeNoRui on Stage48: Yumenorui on...

Ramblings 2015-03-10 17:15:11 I haven’t written in awhile. There have been various things hasn’t it?   Although I have no confidence in gathering the stuff, let’s try writing them. (・Д・)ノ   First of all, March 4th! The new song, has me and Kojima-san as W Center! 【Green Flash】 is on sale~   And, first week million sales and Oricon weekly chart No.1! Truly, thank you very much. So many people listened to this song that I love, I am truly happy from the bottom of my heart.   Even just a little, taking the long way is fine There might be good things tomorrow (Note: Lyrics from Green Flash) My favourite lyrics.   It would be great if this became a song that everyone loves.     Coupling song 【Haru no Hikari Chikazuita Natsu】 The dance and the mv were very stylish and cute. The outfits were totally different for every member~   This song only has AKB members so I was allowed to sing it.   I played with my hair accessories. Theme is a girl’s toy box. Please enjoy both songs.   Lately, I have appeared on a lot of magazines.   Weekly Playboy.   My offshot also got cameraman Tatsuo-san Please take a look.   Professionals are amazing I thought. Eh? This look like a page from the magazine doesn’t it? lol   An uncle that is tender and mean yet cute lol   So that’s how it was!!   Although somehow I can’t use my voice And my throat is sore but I am feeling just fine lol   I have been doing gravure shoots since this morning. Fun fun. Please also look forward to it Until next time   Long post, I may have gotten distracted along the way LOL but it’s nice that Yukirin posted. Congrats AKB on another Million...

Yukirin Election 2015 (Updated 3/4)

I’m happy to announce that the Japanese Yukirin Election Committee is now accepting donations from overseas!!!! The Japanese committee’s headquarter website : http://2015.yuki-election.com Also available in English and Chinese. I would like to start a donation drive. There is a bank transfer fee involved so I was thinking to we could do it in batches where I can accept money via Paypal and then send to the Japanese Committee directly. What do Yukirin fans think? From last year’s experience, only a limited number of tickets that can be bought without physically being in Japan. There was a lot of interest by everyone to donate more but we could not accept it. By donating to the Japanese committee, it makes it a lot easier. If you’re interested, let me know. Yukirin World Unite!!!! Maddie   Last year’s support video (a new one is coming…)...
