My Pure·Delight – NMB Domination on MUSIC JAPAN

During that time, the three groups have competed against each other in a short mini sports competition. In short, NMB did quite well. In particular, Yamamoto Sayaka (Sayanee) was amazing throughout the competition.

My Pure·WTF – Milky to Team B, Jurina to Team K

It was announced on the second day of Saitama Super Arena that NMB48 member Watanabe Miyuki (Milky) would get transferred to Team B and SKE48 member Matsui Jurina (Jurina) would get transferred to Team K.

When I first heard the news this morning, I absolutely hated the idea. I was left sitting, staring blankly into space, with no words to describe how I felt. And after hours of thinking, I still hate the idea and I’m still not sure what to say. I don’t care if the transfer is “limited-time” or “temporary,” I hate the idea of transferring NMB48 and SKE48 members into AKB48.

I hope this ends well, but I have my doubts.

My Pure·Thoughts – AKB in Google+ CM

The Google+ CM video featuring members of the AKB family and promoting the Galaxy Nexus has been put up on Google Japan’s official Youtube channel. There is no doubt that Google+’s popularity has seen an increase since AKB started promoting the social networking service. It’s been great to see the girls post and interact with each other and their fans. And as the CM shows, Google+ has many cool and interesting features that make it fun to keep up with the posts of all the AKB girls and they can all be utilized easily on the Galaxy Nexus. A nice and effective CM.

My Pure·Delight – Shawako on Shibuya Deep A

Short post. Earlier today, SKE48 Team KII member Hata Sawako (Shawako) appeared as a guest on the TV show Shibuya Deep A. Her shyness on camera still showed a little, but I thought her acting was pretty decent. And of course, she was absolutely beautiful and adorable. Not going into much detail about the show, but pics and video of her acting after the jump.
