[Poll Corner]Best idol cover of “Akai Sweet Pea” by Matsuda Seiko

28 Sep

After listening to Watanabe Mayu’s recent solo rendition of “Akai Sweet Pea” by eternal idol Matsuda Seiko, i was reminded of Kojima Haruna doing the same song years ago and decided to do a compilation of idol covers here.

Most of them did a really good job with the song, except for one(shall leave you to discover for yourself).

Anyway, i am including a poll at the bottom of this post so you can vote for the best cover. If this corner works out, i will introduce another song next week.

Iwasa Misaki ponders over the value of her existence if she quits AKB48

28 Sep

This is specially for Denny Sinnoh, who seems to be a Iwasa fan.

AKB48 Team K’s Iwasa Misaki (19) recently posted on her blog, questioning the worth of her existence if she were to quit AKB48.

The post titled “Dreams” was uploaded on 24th September, where she talked about fans who came to meet her at a handshake event on the previous day. Apparently, fans had stopped her from graduating, saying “Wasamin can’t graduate! You’ll stay here forever right?”

In response to this, she wrote “There’s no such thing like not graduating! *laughs* There’s definitely no member who won’t graduate! If i weren’t part of AKB, you won’t support me? Is there no charm about me if I weren’t part of AKB?”

Reflecting further, she wrote “Once again, i realise that i have to work harder in order for fans to follow me even after i graduate.I’d be happy if everyone can support me and my dreams. ”

However, looking at the cases of graduated members, it is a fact that many are having it tough. Shinoda Mariko(28) and Itano Tomomi(23) for example, have ceased to be as active compared to when they were still in AKB. Will Iwasa Misaki be able to maintain the connection with her fans after graduation?
