Meimei collection addition~

flaggb I got the chance to get Tamura Meimi’s Graduation Memorial photobook, so I decided to grab one! Used my CDJapan points to make it cheaper, and I’m happy it’s mine now!

It’s very thin, but a nice addition to any Meimei fan’s collection! ^^ It’s got two sessions, a kimono one and a retro red outfit one. Also got a memorial page with the 2ki now and then, and other S/mileage and ANGERME photos of her. These are my favourite pages:

If you have a chance to get it, don’t hesitate! ^^

Best of 2016 Vol.2

flaggb Here’s the continuation of my H!O ranking for this year:

Best Idol Group: Country Girls
bestidol2016
I like Country Girls’ chemistry the best, and this isthe best working and most entertaining group to me. I really hope they’ll keep their charm without Momo.

Best Newcomer: Onoda Saori (Tsubaki Factory)
bestidol2016
There weren’t many new members (announced) this year, and she’s the one I’m most interested in. ^^

Best Singer: Tamura Meimi (ANGERME, graduated)
top10idol20164
This is the last year I can vote for her, and I think she’s become a very talented singer.

Best Dancer: Ishida Ayumi (Morning Musume ’16)
bestidol2016
She’s the Dancing Queen to me. (Even though I loved the graduated Manakan’s dancing as well.)

Best Performer: Murota Mizuki (ANGERME)
top10idol20167
I think I liked her performance the best this year, not only in concerts, but also in their MVs.

Best of 2016 Vol.1

flaggb There’s an annual poll on H!O to find out who is and what song was the most popular that year. I thought I’ll share my top 10 of the year! Let’s begin! (Note: It went for points, so this list may differ from my actual top favourites list. Also considered giving higher points to my graduated favourite members, since I can’t vote for them next year.)

Top 10 idol of 2016

10. Tsugunaga Momoko (Country Girls)
top10idol201610
In my eyes, Momochi (along with Sayu, though she’s not one of my favourites) is the most professional idol ever. She knows exactly what she’s doing, did a great job “raising” Country Girls and is a very good performer. I love her and I’ll miss her so much after she graduates. ;__;

9. Kudou Haruka (Morning Musume ’16)
top10idol20169
Duu is awesomeness, hands down. I’ve been fangirling over her more and more recently. She’s cool and cute at the same time and I love her confidence!

8. Kanazawa Tomoko (Juice=Juice)
img2016100104171971
She’s my favourite Juice=Juice member, and she’s been through much, fighting a lot with her illness this year. Her speech at the end of their Budoukan concert made me to include her on this list. She’s definitely a highlight of this year and deserves love. :3 Not to mention, she’s awesome. :3

7. Murota Mizuki (ANGERME)
top10idol20167
Murotan is an energy bomb and I love it! 😀 She’s also amused me several times this year! I love how she flirts with the camera and has those delicate, feminine movements in dancing. (My favourite is this.)

6. Kamikokuryo Moe (ANGERME)
top10idol20166
Kamiko debuted this year, and I didn’t fall for her immediately (I only thought she’s cute), but seeing her skills and how well she fit in the group as time flew, I couldn’t help but become to love her. I also loved her story that she couldn’t like Momusu after failing their audition, but then ANGERME came and she fell in love with them. That’s just so adorable!

5. Nonaka Miki (Morning Musume ’16)
top10idol20165
Miki is my favourite 12ki, and she’s so cute and talented! (I loved her in Emotion in motion’s Aishite aishite ato ippun! *-*) She seems to be a semi-back girl now, but I’m rooting for her so much, she deserves more love!

4. Tamura Meimi (ANGERME, graduated)
top10idol20164
Meimei was my 2nd favourite ANGERME member. She had a wonderful graduation concert and is heading to her dreams. I’ve written much of her in her graduation post, so I’ll make it short here. She’s definitely one of my favourite 2016 idols, since this was her last active year. I also could order her graduation memorial photobook of her! Yay~

3. Inaba Manaka (Country Girls, graduated)
img20160609161017855
Manakan’s graduation was so sudden! ;__; I’m really sad she had to leave, because I loved watching her enthusiastic performance. She truly loved being an idol and I really miss her. She also had a graduation post here. Hunting her Greeting photobook for now. ;_;

2. Fukumura Mizuki (Morning Musume ’16)
top10idol20162
She’s my all-time-favourite kamioshi. I must include her on lists like this. She’s the best.♥

1. Yamaki Risa (Country Girls)
top10idol20161
The reason Risachan is above Fukuchan on this list, because 2016 definitely was the year when she became my 2nd kamioshi. She’s beautiful, talented and fun! Watch out of her! :3

Tamura Meimi graduation [UPDATED]

flaggb I decided to cry in this post about my 2nd favourite ANGERME member, Tamura Meimi leaving. I’ll update it as time goes by.

First, I found a video which includes Meimi’s solo lines in their PVs:

I didn’t think earlier, but I think I’ll show my very-very little Meimei collection (with very low quality images… T_T I’ll update it on Wednesday, when I get to them). I have two 2Ls in her Tachiagirl costume, I have a H!P 2015 Winter concert one (L size), and her last birthday edition (also L size). (Ohh, the non-exsisting quality of my photos… T_T) UPDATED.
Meimei collection 1
Meimei collection 2

I think I’ll also include my Hello! Pro Tap Live Meimi card collection. Since I don’t have any starstones left to pull from the Meimi gacha, I think I won’t get any more. (They’ll take out her cards from the game pretty fast.) I have the N and the R, 3 SRs, an SSR and an SSRkai. I wanted more, she has some very well-drawn cards… ;_____;

THE CONCERT

GUYS I WASN’T HOME UNTIL KOUSATEN. ;____; I can only listen to an audio stream a Japanese guy does. ;__; I’m dying to see it, but I can’t. ;___; I’m even crying during Nana korobi ya oki. ;__;
DESUGITA KUI WA UTARENAI ;__;
Found a low-quality stream, but it’s still better than nothing. Now we’re waiting for the encore. I was crying like a baby during Sukichan. I mean, SUKICHAN. Meimei~~~~~ ;__;
Budoukan is flowing with purple… ;____;
It’s over, she graduated. Take care, Meimei! 🙂
UPDATE:
I could finally watch the whole concert. On one hand, it was awesome! The setlist was reeeeeeally great and the girls did SOOOOO WELL! They were awesome!
On the other hand, it was so sad. 😥 I was totally okay until Jojou Kumikyoku “Smile Fantasy!”, but then Takechan started crying and it was over for me. ;__; That was a beautiful song and also highlighted Meimi’s musical skills. After that, they sang Kousaten, and I was still crying. After that, I kept being a little sad. Also shed tears during Sukichan, Jitensha chiririn (it was Meimei’s graduation solo), their speeches… basically during the whole ending section. I’m still sad that one of my favourite members left, but this is what rotating groups are about. I hope we can see this little diva again on stage! :’)

THOUGHTS
Magazine, Tamura Meimi-482093

Meimei joined along the 2ki members back in 2011. I was a H!P fan barely for a year. I usually don’t like girls without bangs (I know it’s stupid), but I thought she’s one of the few girls who can pull off that look. That’s how she caught my attention. I kept noticing her in the upcoming PVs since she was so cute and cheerful. I don’t know when, but she became my favourite 2ki member. I like how she’s a diva and goofy at the same time. She has an entertaining personality and a great voice. She’s become more mature during the years and was a good senpai for the 3ki and 4ki. I was really sad when she announced her graduation, but I thought the path she chose really fits her. She’s a little diva and I hope she can fulfill her dream. Best wishes, Meimi and thank you for everything!
