Chu! <3

I really love the AKBIdoling!!! single.  I find the song to be so fun and catchy.  And I love the whole concept on AKB48 and Idoling!!! joining together.  You see I love both groups, and I think a lot of the Idoling!!! girls really look up to AKB48.  It is a really cute dynamic to see them on one another’s television programs and now this single.

But that’s the thing.  I AM a fan of both groups.  And I have noticed a little bit of a rivalry among each unit’s faithful.  I actually find it a bit funny.  Why can’t an AKB Wota appreciate Idoling!!!, and vice-versa?  I am not saying everyone thinks this way.  And I am not limiting it to AKB48 fans either.  I have seen it with Hello! Project fans, Perfume fans, etcetera etcetera.

So when I watch the PV’s and I am looking for the girl who most intrigues me in the video, it would be an easy choice if Meetan was selected to participate.  But she wasn’t.  And truthfully she doesn’t really fit this song anyway.  So then…who should I choose to chu???

?????????????

Is it Acchan?  I really love Atsuko in this video.  And she has been given the opportunity to show off a lot more of her cute personality lately.  She used to have a rep as sort of a “dead fish”.  But not anymore.  She has been doing a great job of being AKB48’s poster girl.

Is it Harunyan?  She wasn’t one of my fave girls until I watched Mendol.  And then I got her autographed card on my AKB48 Calendar.  I then discovered how beautiful and talented she really was.  She would be a nice chu

Is it Yuko?  She has such a cute voice.  I love that it is high and sweet when she sings, and love and gravely when she talks.  And she has a great sense of humor too.  If you watch the “making of” PV, she is amazing in front of the camera.  It is no surprise that she gets so much dorama work…

So of all the girls chosen for this PV, who was my “far and away” favorite?  (if you read my other blog, you already know the answer)

No, it isn’t an AKB48 member.  It is Idoling!!! 1st gen. member Yazawa Erika.

Sometimes I find myself completely captivated by a beautiful woman.  And Erika just does that to me.  I think she is totally adorable.  And she was a wonderful smile!  And if you remember her guest appearance on AKBingo!, she was a great personality.  What a fun girl!

So I hope that doesn’t mean that I am betraying my AKB48 fandom.  Actually, I know it doesn’t.  I say that in semi-jest.  My point is that I think the girls of Idoling!!! “held their own” in this song.  It wasn’t AKB48 and some other girls.  It is AKBIdoling!!!  A collaboration of two sets of beautiful and talented young idols.  And Yazawa Erika might be my favorite idol of them all!

So I cannot wait to hear the Idoling!!! version of Aitakatta!  And I am looking forward to AKB48’s version of Moteki no Uta.  I fully expect to love all three songs when I receive my CD.

So yes, You too can be a fan of more than one idol group!  By the way, I realize that I have technically done the same post twice.  This one, and the Yazawa picspam on my other blog.  But I do most of my Idoling!!! posts over there.  And let’s face it, she is kawaii enough to deserve two posts!
