With all my love of categorizing and ranking things, the entire concept of image colors really appeals to me. I like the idea of them each having their own little category, and I’ve often wondered if there’s any meaning behind the colors chosen for them beyond, “the girl who used to have this color graduated, so here you go new member”. In an attempt to find out if there was any real correlation between the girl and her color, I looked up the most common personality associations with each of the ‘image colors’ and compared with my perceptions of the girl’s personalities. I’m considering the fairy costumes worn at the winter WH concert to be indicative of the most current image colors for each of them. It seems like Risako and Miyabi have been switched around, but the rest are all consistent with what they’ve been for a while.
Team Pink- Sayu, Maimi, Momoko
+Associations: feminine, appreciative, romantic
-Associations: passive, weak
Sayu- she’s certainly feminine and romantic, but she’s definitely not passive. Pretty weak when it comes to physical strength
Maimi- I don’t see her as being all that feminine, I mean, she is, but not like Sayu is.
Momoko- she’s a pretty little princess isn’t she?
Team Red- Koharu, Kanna, Miyabi
+Associations: Passion, strength, leadership/power
-Associations: arrogant, quick tempered, masculine
Koharu- certainly got the arrogance, and wielding a fair amount of power lately, and it’s hard to argue that she’s not passionate
Kanna- doesn’t really seem to fit her at all, I only give her points for the ‘masculine’ thing due to that lesbian comment
Miyabi -I’ll give her passion and leadership, her jaw covers the masculinity, but I don’t really see her as a ‘firey’ red kind of person
Team Orange- Eri, Nakki, Chinami
+Associations: enthusiastic, playful, energetic
-Associations: over-emotional, attention demanding
Eri- hmm. Not really. I guess she’s playful, but she’s not especially any of those other things, she’s one of the more low energy, less attention demanding members
Nakki- Nakki, however, fits this quite well. She’s very energetic and enthusiastic, she cries a lot (over-emotional)
Chinami- a good fit on the positive traits, but not so much on the negatives
Team Yellow- Ai-chan, Erika, Risako
+Associations: outgoing, joyful, friendly
-Associations: cowardly, dishonest
Ai-chan- she’s not super-sunny really, I would say that she’s friendly though not particularly outgoing, and if you see her in a haunted house it’s not a stretch to call her a bit of a coward, but then again, she’s been quite brave with all she’s had to handle lately
Erika- Good match on the positives
Risako- I don’t know why, but I see her as kind of dishonest; don’t know if she’s all that friendly either
Team Green- Risa, LinLin (because I’m not making a new category for “turquoise”), Airi, Yurina (SO my favorite team)
+Associations: gentle, kind, sincere
-Associations: envious, inexperienced
Risa- All of the positives fit her to a T, and while she’s not actually inexperienced, the “Gaki-san” indicates otherwise, and I wouldn’t blame her for being envious after being shafted for so long
LinLin- Hmm. No. Not especially sincere or gentle, and not inexperienced either
Airi- Yes on the positives. No on the negatives. Who exactly could she be jealous of?
Yurina- I don’t really see her as this type
Team Blue- Reina, JunJun, Chisato, Maasa
+Associations: calm, confident, dependable
-Associations: aloof, sad
Reina- I totally give this one to her. She’s full of confidence, has been accused of being kind of aloof, and has certainly proven herself dependable over the years
JunJun- I guess she’s calm sometimes, but nothing else really fits so far
Chisato- Calm and aloof? Nope.
Maasa- Not so much with this one either.
Team Purple- Aika, Mai, Saki
+Associations: creative, mysterious, noble
-Assiciations: prideful, fake
Aika- The only mystery about her is how she became so cute
Mai- I’ve heard her called both prideful and fake, and she does have a bit of a noble baring about her, despite her age. I think she’ll fit this even more as she grows up
Saki S.- No. Not at all.
I’ve ended with everything from “fits her perfectly” to “couldn’t fit her worse”. I think if I were to reassign the image colors, I’d do it as follows.
Team Pink v.2 Sayumi, Ai-chan, Airi, Yurina
Team Red v.2 Koharu, Chisato, Maasa
Team Orange v.2 LinLin, Nakki, Momoko
Team Yellow v.2 Aika, Erika, Chinami
Team Green v.2 Risa, JunJun, Kanna, Saki S.
Team Blue v.2 Reina, Maimi, Miyabi
Team Purple v.2 Eri, Mai, Risako
