Watanabe Miyuki talks about Sayanee and her hopes for a new NMB48

2 Jul

NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki talked about her wishes for a new NMB during a radio show on 21st June 2016.

Her new NMB48
“It’s difficult to imagine a new 2-top consisting Sayachan and someone. It’s better to create a new NMB,” she said. “On the contrary, it’s pitiful for Sayanee to continue as center. Sayachan is known for being the captain….it’d be better balanced if others were the double centers and Sayanee is in 2nd line center, like she’s supporting them.”

Her ideal formation
“If i think about all the members, Nagichan(Shibuya Nagisa) and Mirurun(Shiroma Miru) for double centers. Center for 2nd line would be Sayanee. On her side – Ririka(Sutou Ririka, Fuuchan(Yagura Fuuko). Riripon and Juri are good too.”

On Sayanee
On a previous occasion, Sayanee mentioned that they were formidable when standing next to each other, showing her utmost trust. In return, Watanabe said that Sayanee was the person she was destined to meet in her life.

On that, Milky said “That speech is true, but what i don’t want people to get confused about – SayaMiru are not dating(laugh), it wouldn’t be right if we are taken to be good friends. However, good or bad, we greatly influence each other in many ways. In that sense, i said we’re destined to meet.”

“I too think that i’m here because of Sayachan. If she weren’t around i would be living an entirely different life. It’s surreal.”


In related news, Milky’s graduation concert will be held on 3rd & 4th July 2016 at Kobe World Memorial Hall. NicoNico will stream her concert from 6pm Japan Time on 3rd July 2016.

NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki (22) has announced her graduation from the group on 13th April 2016, during a theater life in Osaka.

Speaking in tears “Compared to when i first joined NMB48, it took even more determination to graduate. The juniors are shining. From the bottom of my heart, I want to leave NMB48 to the next generation.”

To Yamamoto Sayaka who was also present on stage, she said “We’re the same age, about the same height, and belong to the same blood type. To the end, we’re not able to be friends, but you’re the person i’m most fated to meet. It’s really regretful that i’m not able to be honest, but more than anyone i know that you’re a great person and really respect you. I’ve never been able to relay this message, but i’ll pluck up the courage here and tell you now.”

Yamamoto was apparently the only one who knew about her graduation plans beforehand. She said “Being in NMB48 by itself is not an answer, nor is it the path to success. To Milky who has been with us all the way, we would like to believe in the road you choose.”

Watanabe Miyuki did not elaborate on the specific date or her future plans.

Finally, Yamamoto also revealed that she has discussed with Akimoto Yasushi to have her concurrency in AKB48 removed so she can concentrate on NMB48.


NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki finally attempts to explain her scandal using E-Girls’ song

24 May

In March this year, NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki(nickname Milky) was caught in a scandal with male model(and medical student) Fujita Tom(21).Watanabe had not officially commented on this issue, but a message to her fans have become a hot topic of discussion.

On the 22nd May, Watanabe sent a mobile mail to fans, asking them to listen to E-Girls’ song “Gomenasai no Kissing You” in full, saying it is a song that fits herself perfectly. This song was released in October 2013, and has lyrics saying “We were only having a meal. He’s just a friend, please believe me!” Other parts of the song has lyrics saying “I am reflecting anyway” and “Sorry, one more chance please”. To her fans, it seemed like she was trying to explain her scandal instead.

During last year’s AKB48 General Elections, Watanabe had placed 15th. With her “little devil” personality, she is one of the most popular members alongside captain Yamamoto Sayaka in NMB48. However, in the preliminary rankings for AKB48 General Elections this year, her position dropped to 25th and her total votes amassed was only two-thirds of last year’s.

“She had been keeping mum about the scandal up till now. But the sudden apology now means that she is panicking about 25th position. A portion of fans may think that it is already too late to apologise, but there are also many who are still supportive, even praising her unique style of apology.”

On her google+, fans have left messages telling her that her “message” is well understood and they will not disappoint her in remaining campaign period.

However, as the mobile mail can only be read by subscribers, other fans believe she should apologize to all if she was truly sincere, including fellow members who have worked hard thus far.


In another press event, Milky was asked about her feelings placing 25th in the preliminaries of this year’s AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo.

“Placing 25th, it’s a ‘HELP ME’ situation, but no matter what i wish to enter senbatsu. I will trust my fans and upload more kawaii pictures of myself on my google+,” she said.


I kinda belong to the camp who thinks she should have explained herself from the start.  Even if there’s something going on between the 2 of them, how hard is it to deny it? Her fans will probably believe whatever she says anyway, so keeping mum actually makes it worse. What’s more, the guy in this scandal is keeping a “no comment” stance as well. Now that the damage is done, coming out to explain things just looks like a desparate struggle to piece things together.

Watanaba Miyuki’s alleged boyfriend makes singer debut, gets grilled about his scandal with Milky

8 Apr

Popular reader model group “Collection” which comprises Fujita Tom(21), Takazumi Hikiti(24), Marcos Toma(20) appeared at a press event to promote their debut single “We can make our Dream! ~Niji no mukou e~”.

The Fujita here is the medical school undergraduate/model who got “popular” thanks to his sleepover scandal with NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki, reported here.

When questioned about his scandal, he looked perplexed for a second before answering “I have nothing to say.”

Reporter pressed on by asking if his girls are troubled by his good looks, but he claims there’s “no such thing”.

The idea of this boy unit was derived from fashion event Tokyo Boys Collection. The members made their stage debut last month.

Their song will be unveiled on 31st May at T2 Shibuya during the 1st anniversary of Tokyo Boys Collection.

Watanabe Miyuki gets into a scandal for the 2nd time, this time it’s a sleepover with male model

14 Mar

Saw this on Yahoo Japan and had to write a post about it.

Watanabe Miyuki, 2nd center of NMB48 and a favourite amongst fans of the 48 groups due to her ‘fishing’ skills, was caught sleeping over with an ikemen model Fujita Tom. This was exposed in an article from Bunshun Shunkan, published 13 March 2014.

Although there are no concise photos showing both of them together, the 2 were clearly captured leaving the house which Miyuki stays in when she comes to Tokyo for work. Picture below.

Fans are shocked at this turn of events as Watanabe Miyuki  had once said that she would not betray her fans. Some have taken to Fujita Tom’s twitter to leave angry messages such as “Do you know what you have done?” and “We will not forgive you if you make a move on her again!”. Fujita Tom chose to ignore these comments, continuing to tweet as per usual. Watanabe Miyuki is also choosing to maintain her silence, as her Google+ site continues to be updated with her daily schedules.

This is not the first time Watanabe Miyuki has been embroiled in a scandal. In 2011, she was dropped from the senbatsu lineup of NMB48 2nd single “Oh my god!”. It was speculated that she was given a penalty due to meeting up with male fans in private. If this is true, what will be the consequences this time?



 “I hope you can think more about the fans who support you…..”

Mangaka Yoshirin, who is a Miyuki fan and the representative of all fans when it comes to talking about the 48 groups, left a post on his blog expressing disappointment in Miyuki.

“I can’t help but think about the fans who spend lots of money buying CDs to meet Miyuki in handshake sessions. As most of them are civilised and serious males, somehow they are pitiful and i feel like crying.”

The post was titled “I hope you can think more about the fans who support you with no strings attached.”

However, in a later post, he also acknowledged that the article may in fact be false since the AKB management have yet to give an official reply to this scandal. He promised to apologise if it turns out that the article was written to defame Miyuki.



More snippets taken from other sites about the guy.

– He is young, good-looking and really smart, because he’s a 2nd year student in Tokyo University’s Medicine Faculty(Dentistry).
– Models exclusively for Samurai Elo magazine.
– Judging by the limited returns from Google search, he is not that popular/recognised yet.
– He may already have a girlfriend, a violinist by the name of Machi Okabe.
– Sashihara Rino was following his twitter account. She quickly unfollowed him in light of the scandal.
– Details of his fling with Milky from his alleged private twitter was leaked here.

Forgot where i read these, but it is said Miyuki fell for him at a drinking party and pursued him aggressively over LINE.  Fans are disappointed but totally see why she would like him, given his excellent credentials.

What’s left now is her official reply to this matter.

真夏のSounds Good! on Ichiban Song Show

17 Jan

I know this has been performed X number of times but here’s the latest version on Ichiban Song Show! My oshi Watanabe Mayu seems to have become the new face of the group as she has been replacing Acchan’s position in almost all the songs i’ve seen so far. No complains here as she’s been doing perfectly fine so far!

At the end, Shimazaki Haruka gets some airtime as the MC reminisced about the time when he gave Paruru an image makeover  previously. He mentioned he was cheering her on during her performance, and Paruru returned his favor by saying she was also looking at him to see if he would notice her. OMG the father-daughter love here!! ❤

My only complain about this performance – Watanabe Miruki. Will talk more about her next time, but just to let you know, I really DISLIKE this girl!
